About time this board has some activity. I intend on keeping this thread semi up-to-date with goings on in "The South" from a Raidendot perspective. Essentially, I'll post when I'm not crying myself to sleep about the Supercapital changes ;)

Quick update on the goings on from the last few days:

-A- & co have started trying to retake stuff. So far their efforts seem to be focused on CNC- (currently owned by Ushra'khan), however, they tried something involving 8 Supercarriers in HED- just before DT 3 days ago. I believe at least 3 -A- Nyx's are (still) logged off in bubbles, but the Russians are 'caretaking' those so not 100% sure.

Hey You offered INIT a ~Fair Fight~ not involving Supers in Curse but they declined. Maybe they don't like ~Fair Fights~?
Anyway, Hey You took it personally proceeded to take a gang to rage reinforce a staging POS in Curse a couple of days later, losing a dread in the process. No-one really gave even a single fuck about the tower so nothing came of it. :HeyYou:

Also, we had a nice little fight with -A- over CNC- last night, which I'll post separately.

CNC BR from Raidendot Perspective. Apologies in advance for Wall of Text :P


CNC Ihub was coming out of its last Reinforced Timer so we expected -A- to form in full force. We formed up 80 or so Pulse Abaddons with 5 Triage carriers and sent out the Scouts to see what we had to deal with.
-A- formed a 130 man gang in Alpha Tempests / Maelstroms and Scimitars on a Titan. INIT/Curse guys also had a large number of ships formed, but there was no intel to suggest whether or not they were coming our way.
Whilst -A- were waiting on an online Titan, we moved Carriers to a midpoint and the main fleet to 1 jump out, and waited for -A- to make their move.

Sure enough, -A- bridged in and the fight was on. 3 of the Triage carriers made it through the first cyno (although 1 landed at a safe) and, after some confusion, Triaged. The initial exchange of fire saw -A- burning out of bubbles and warping off to a gate. Triage reps held except for an early couple of Abaddon losses and our cyno ship, whilst -A- appeared to take about 10 losses.

-A- bailed to a neighbouring system, and a random WN Drake Fleet gave chase (not sure if WN were batphoned or just happened to be there). Our Abaddon fleet also followed -A-, jumping in behind them and failing to snag anyone. Meanwhile, we brought in our 2 additional triage carriers to CNC that had missed the initial cyno (-A- killed it fast, props). All Triage cycles dropped whilst -A- were regrouping next door, so all 5 Carriers moved to the gate both -A- and our Abaddons had exited through.

-A- warped back to the gate and re-entered CNC, burning off the gate on the CNC side and Alpha-ing through a Thanatos and a tackle Loki before either could get reps (I'm unsure if the carrier was late to broadcast, or we were just too slow to lock without Triage). Our Abaddon fleet re-entered CNC and round 2 began. 2 of our Carriers entered triage whilst drifting in the direction of -A-'s align whilst the Pulse fit abaddongues tried to stay in range and deal damage. Reps were holding for people that broadcasted early enough, but -A- probably came out on top (isk wise) due to the early kills and another of our Lokis getting too adventurous and moving 70km from the Carriers to try and get a tackle (and promptly dying). We despatched 15 or so -A- BS in return for our losses.

-A- once again burned off and exited the system to regroup. Our carriers began to rep the ihub whilst we waited to see if -A- would come back. Scouts in LGK reported -A- bridging further reinforcements.

They did indeed return for one last go at us, and this time they had enough Alpha to make it through an Abaddon before Triage Carriers could lock. Ships went down fast on both sides, but Raiden probably held the advantage in this round, killing roughly 15-20 BS for 5-10 Abaddon Losses.

-A- bailed back to LGK, the Ihub was repped (to 50% armour, we left the rest to Ushra'Khan) and the SBUs were destroyed. I believe -A- have since reinforced the Ihub again so we can hopefully look forward to another good fight this weekend.


The Battle overviews show a lot of WN present, but I am pretty sure they were almost never on the field so it probably looks quite skewed. Looks like losses were roughly even but we held the field, even though I think the Russians looted everything whilst we were still fighting :(
UK supers were only used to kill SBUs / Rep the Ihub at the end.

Will try post updates from the weekend's events today.


Friday night's pre-arranged 'fight' with INIT
On Friday night We had a fleet formed to try and hotdrop some CVA (which wasn't working out) when INIT contacted us requesting an arranged fight.

We agreed on 50 (the number we had in fleet at the time), no supers and to meet halfway between our staging systems.

We moved out immediately and waited in the agreed system. INIT kept us waiting for about 45 minutes (by which time our fleet was roughly 60 strong), then complained that we'd brought too many, despite having more than enough numbers to cope themselves (90 in their staging system).
They made us move to 2 jumps out of their staging system whilst they scouted our fleet to discover we'd brought Tengus. INIT formed up their Ewar Drake / Tempest hit-and-run fleet to try and counter us and refused to enter the system we were in, instead forcing us to jump in to them at their range.

We took the fight on the gate, and the initial exchange of fire saw us trade 2 Scimis and a Sabre (who failed to hold cloak) for a Drake and a Tempest kill.

What followed can only be described as "fagging around". We refused to engage at their range. They refused to engage at our range. This went on for roughly 40 minutes with not a single kill / loss being exchanged. During this time, our original FC got Family Aggro and had to hand over the fleet to someone else.

The stand-in FC kept up the fagging around for another 10 minutes or so, then decided he'd had enough and set us off home. INIT gave chase and snagged a few stragglers (natural selection at it's finest). Once we returned to D-G, our staging system, we formed up on the in gate and waited for INIT. INIT jumped in and engaged at our range (for the first time in the evening). Rather than take the fight, our esteemed FC decided he was tired (and didn't want that E-Honoure anyway) and simply warped 10 titans to the gate. INIT bailed, after asploding a HIC and Tengu of ours, losing only a Sabre in return.

The entire debacle took roughly 3 hours. End numbers were roughly 60 INIT vs 60 Raidendot.

RA Whelp and CNC

We were forming up in Abaddons on Saturday to defend 2 systems -A- had reinforced earlier on in the week, when RA batphoned us to Wicked Creek because they were losing Supers hand over fist. We quickly formed a decent Supercapital gang with support and started to move. RA did not have a cyno chain in place and, between ourselves and WN, we were missing 1 cyno on the route.

By the time the cyno was in place and we got in to the fight it was more or less over. Our entry cyno was 100km+ off the hostiles, but on jump in we primaried a couple of Erebus' (Erebii?) that were already moving inside the shield but they didn't take any significant amount of damage before they re-entered. We primaried an Aeon that was still outside the shield and took him to 30% armour before he made it back inside.

From what I could gather, RA had destroyed a Curse subcap fleet on the Gypsy Band POS with their titans earlier, but then proceeded to sit the supers on grid whilst they looted the field. They supposedly had no scout in any of the hostile staging systems, so failed to notice them reforming in subcaps and supers. By the time Curse & co were back on field they were still sat outside the hostile POS and they didn't contact us or WN until 2 of their Titans were already down. The rest the Killboards show (http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=10821567) ;)




Meanwhile, -A- took the opportunity to try and get a headstart in the systems coming out of reinforced. A medium sized WN bomber gang griefed them a little whilst we were still moving back to Catch. (Bombing run 1 (http://kb.deerhunt.ru/?op=related&name=914929) & Bombing run 2 (http://kb.deerhunt.ru/?op=related&name=914995))

It took us a fair while to move the supercaps back to our Staging systems (Jesus Balls, WN were slow), where we logged them off and bolstered our Abaddon numbers.

We jumped in to CNC with roughly 80 abaddons/guardians vs roughly 110 man -A- AlphaFleet. -A- immedietely fled the field, but we managed to snag a handful of Tempests (http://kb.raidenalliance.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=37064) on their way out. Sidenote, but -A- have some serious "tactical withdrawal" skills - it was quite literally 90 seconds between us jumping in to CNC and them Cyno-ing back to LGK.

-A- docked and it didn't look like they were reforming, so we brought in Supers to finish the SBUs off quickly and left the system. WN saved the other system -A- had reinforced later on with no resistance of note.

Quick update:


Had an interesting 3 way on Sunday involving RDN./WN, INIT and -A-...

We got word from a medium sized WN drake gang that there was an INIT fleet and -A- fleet inside U-QVWD.
We assumed they were working together initially, but scouts reported that they were shooting each other. We quickly formed a good sized Tengu Fleet and WN bridged us in.

The initial cyno was pretty bad, landing us 15km away from the INIT fleet (who were mainly in Abaddons). We lost a HIC immediately and started burning out of the bubbles. It was clear from the get-go that the hostiles didn't have enough repping power to hold against the Tengu DPS, and targets were going down quickly. We lost a further 2 Tengu's and a HIC during the fight, mainly because people were incapable of anchoring up and ranged the Logistics. At one point, one of our guys Wirox Crotikus in a Tengu was off anchor inside the enemy gang. He got to 10% hull before being repped to full by the Logistics. I believe it was this point INIT decided to de-aggro and jump out through the gate, taking a few losses whilst they did so.

Killboards are messy, as they are with all 3 ways, but I've crunched some raw numbers in case anyone is interested.

RDN/WNINIT-A-
Ships:1308528
Kills:393322
Losses:41323
ISK Lost(b):1.283.432.96

http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=10831867

Pretty uneven numbers from the KBs but was still good fun from my perspective as quite a few targets got to low shield before catching reps.
I am pretty sure -A- had more than the 28 that the killboards show, but I don't think they actually got any killing blows on either us or the INIT gang they were initially engaged with. I was in Logistics the entire fight so I can't shed any light on "real" numbers. Perhaps someone from INIT could give us a clearer picture on numbers and/or their engagement with -A-.



We also formed up yesterday for an -A- timer, but -A- only had 50 drakes formed and WN decided to just drop supers and nuke the SBUs. We stood down.

Fleet engagement in CNC- summary:

The CNC station owned by U'K exited reinforced today at 1430. -A- and Nulli Secunda presence in the system arrived about ten minutes prior to this, when they bridged in through a cyno lit just below the station. U'K scouts report additional enemies in FAT-6P waiting to jump in through the gate. Total in local at this time is about 200.

U'K waits at POS while -A- and other badskis inappropriately touch our station. Friends of U'K, White Noise and Raiden had reinforcements standing by, waiting for an assessment of final enemy numbers in CNC and surrounding systems. Various cynos continue going up and scouts are dispatched to get a count of enemy supers, which at this time was unknown. Scouts then report that the hostile fleet has warped away from the station.

A fleet vs. fleet engagement is now proactively sought. Advanced party of U'K's allies jumps in and local increases towards 300. Further reinforcements still standing by. The battle in CNC kicked off with a skirmish as U'K battleships warped to the station to engage a lone -A- Dread. We "knew" he must have been bait and that was fine with us since we wanted to attract the attention of the main -A-/Nulli Secunda fleet, but much to our surprise nobody apart from two Armageddons came to his aid and he was destroyed before his self-destruct sequence could complete.

http://go-dl.eve-files.com/media/1110/CNC-1.jpg

The main fleet engagement starts immediately after this event. A U'K scout gets a warp-in on the enemy fleet in open space and the combined force of U'K, Raiden, and White Noise jumps in to engage. At least nine friendly Titans cyno in once the fleet engagement is underway and enemy battleships start dropping. Enemy supercap presence in the battle appears negligible unless fighters were being assigned (which I did not notice.) Local total now exceeding 400. Module lag of up to 10 seconds allowed the bulk of the enemy force to retreat from the system through the gates once the bubbles on the field started going down and individual enemy ships became difficult to tackle with individual points. Friendly forces pursue the enemy fleet through FAT-6P, but then the U'K contingent of some 40 pilots was instructed to return to CNC and prepare to rep. How far Raiden and White Noise chased them beyond FAT- I don't know.

http://eve-files.com/media/1110/CNC-2.jpg

At least two of the -A- SBU's in CNC were taken down by the time the rep party started. U'K pilots switch to carriers/logis and start repping. White Noise supercarriers provide welcome assistance.

Not the most amazing kill/loss ratio by nullsec standards overall, but still very much in our favor.

Hostile titan logged off with aggression in Stain last night. We scrambled to get there within the 15 minutes (2 mid jumps for Super Carriers).

We managed to arrive and start pounding on it with only 4-5 minutes left on aggression timer, but it disappeared in 50% hull. :(

Would you like to know more?

Yes [x]
No [ ]As you asked so nicely I’ll oblige. Note, this is written from an En Garde grunts pov (pet, ahem, ‘training’ alliance of -A-) so the exact movements of the Red Arrow team may be a bit off and much is plagiarised from another post from their pov.

The battle revolved around the station and ihub shield timers for UEPO, which exited within an hour of each other.

Red Arrow (RA, xXdeathXx, WTF, RED.L, ARISE, UPS & co.) dealt with the sbu’ed 46DP (the Red Arrow primary staging system) straight after DT and stayed formed for UEPO.

-A- & co. started forming at around 14:25, using titan bridges and jbs from LGK to TSG to merge with ROL & co. At this point -A- and assorted were at about 140 with around 75 from ROL and friends. Using more force projection the fleet travelled from TSG to AXDX to Z-7 and then jump into the Red Arrow fleet sitting on gate in UEPO.

1st Round begins, both side were getting hammered and it was a tough one to call until the final stages. S2N turn up part way through the fight, wading in against Red Arrow. ROL & peeps. were awesome in reshipping which went some way towards holding more DPS on the field for longer.

Some wicked bombing runs on behalf of Red Arrow during the fight were keeping our geddons between 4%-40% armour and the Red Arrow scorpions were very nasty, keeping a large bulk of our logis jammed from extreme range. Finally the tide starts to work out which way she wants to turn and Red Arrow pull out, leaving -A-, ROL & co. finish off some more RA carriers. Red Arrow reship, RA doing so in 77S8.

In the meantime, with the field temporarily clear, the UEPO ihub is reinforced, and -A-, ROL & co. start to work on the station.

An already reinforced Red Arrow fleet adds an impressive AHAC contingent to the fleet comp for Round 2 and jump into us on gate before the station is done. The AHAC’s mince our already reduced logistics and we start taking heavy casualties; we have to de-aggress and jump through, docking in 66-.

While -A-, ROL & co. wait for more reinforcements, Red Arrow destroy some SBU’s, effectively saving the system.

-A-, ROL & co. break out of the station scattering some scrub drake fleet intent on camping us in (odd move from those drakes, it was a bit like using a chocolate fire guard for a raging fire), and with reinforcements and the addition of INIT turning up to lend a hand, back in we go again for Round 3, once again fighting on the gate. The Red Arrow AHACs take the bulk of the DPS while RA’s fleet bounce to a regroup point due to a communication error, leaving part of the fleet fighting by themselves for around 4 minutes, before finally returning into the fray.

Despite personally being primary twice and repped up from structure (logi pilots telling me how :awesome: I am for not turning hardeners on while I glumly look at the standard CTA geddon which has exactly 1 dcu for any manual tank mods) the fight quickly sways one way and with more carriers down Red Arrow leave the field. We head home having held the field on the 3rd engagement. Later Red Arrow repairs the station.

On a different note, another good fight last night despite pulling the WIN BUTTON trigger a little late: http://a-killed.me/?a=kill_related&kll_id=562621

I'd say : glad it was late, it allowed this fight to be intense too :p

Quickly summing up this one, we (ARISE) were trying to catch the dropped sov in NZW before AAA & friends could form up, but at this point we weren't able to hold anything since they brought something like 150-200 pilots.
They came in, destroyed our 3 TCUs, anchored their POS and TCU then left the system to EON pilots.

20:30 ET, We formed up a 60 pilots fleet and were able to get help from a RA fleet, wich jumped in with a few Carriers, at the very beginning of the fight (20:50 ET). Our goal was to take down their onlining TCU.
AAA & friends cynoed a total of ~130 (from two or three waves) while we showed up with RA a 100-110 pilots fleet : honestly kinda even.

I think we did well until both AAA Titans started to work on our BSs. Nicely done, we suffered a lot.
Then they jumped their SCs and we bailed out, leaving RA carriers behind us :/

Note that we did not manage to kill the TCU :)

Well done, interesting fight, no smack except the usual surrending french stuff: a pleasant evening for me ! Thanks to the friends and foes involved.

Still a bit new to writing up battle reports, so bear with me :)

After a few weeks of inactivity and limited numbers we decided to team up with our new neighbors Calamitous Intent for a little t1 armor cruiser roam.

We started off heading towards KBP, not finding much but a small FIGL gang so we started heading down the pipe towards HED-GP to get a fight. Right on queue, halfway through the pipe we get word that test is sending a 30-35 man cruiser gang our way. So we send our scouts ahead, find the gang and we ended up meeting in T-R. Didnt end up killing everything but we still managed to get a good fight and have some fun :)

http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=15811310

Our scouts then notice an oracle blob with 6 logi forming up so we decided it was about time to go. So we come back towards Assah and after taking a short bio we notice a blotch on the map about 5 jumps out so we send our scout ahead and find a Broken Toys fleet hitting a tower in Onsooh. 3 Guards, 17 BS, and a few cruisers. We start burning, deciding to stick with the cruisers we were already in.

We jump in, warp to the tower, and sure enough they warp off. After chasing them around system for a few minutes, we finally meet at a planet and fights on. After killing a couple of their guys and them realizing their reps weren't going to hold up, they lit a cyno and jumped in 2 Archons. The scramble was on! Do we want to use dreads with our new found friends on the first date? But we decide to go ahead and drop. So during the scramble they bring in a falcon and start jamming out our logi. We lose a few guys... start to panic that things are getting real shaky, us not having enough dps to break anything. We lose our sensor damps, our vigilant, then we finally get our cyno into system and we bring in the dreads. Everything seems fine until one of our dreads bounces 100km off. So instead of being able to immediately melt the Archons, we then bring in an Ashimmu and start blapping BS.

TL:DR: Good fight Broken Toys, was a much closer fight than the Battle Report shows. Look forward to more GF's in the future.

Well -A- is officially dead. Rus corps splitting, MVN maybe to BL. Maybe a corp to RZR, who knows.

Just be glad makalu isn't at the head of an alliance anymore.



If -A- is falling apart then I insist that Random-Violence AKA Blackwater USA/Hull Miners Union reform and return in Syndicate for good fights and shit talk.

Cho Wong must return!

NPC null was more fun and you know it.

Still a bit new to writing up battle reports, so bear with me :)

After a few weeks of inactivity and limited numbers we decided to team up with our new neighbors Calamitous Intent for a little t1 armor cruiser roam.

We started off heading towards KBP, not finding much but a small FIGL gang so we started heading down the pipe towards HED-GP to get a fight. Right on queue, halfway through the pipe we get word that test is sending a 30-35 man cruiser gang our way. So we send our scouts ahead, find the gang and we ended up meeting in T-R. Didnt end up killing everything but we still managed to get a good fight and have some fun :)

http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=15811310

Our scouts then notice an oracle blob with 6 logi forming up so we decided it was about time to go. So we come back towards Assah and after taking a short bio we notice a blotch on the map about 5 jumps out so we send our scout ahead and find a Broken Toys fleet hitting a tower in Onsooh. 3 Guards, 17 BS, and a few cruisers. We start burning, deciding to stick with the cruisers we were already in.

We jump in, warp to the tower, and sure enough they warp off. After chasing them around system for a few minutes, we finally meet at a planet and fights on. After killing a couple of their guys and them realizing their reps weren't going to hold up, they lit a cyno and jumped in 2 Archons. The scramble was on! Do we want to use dreads with our new found friends on the first date? But we decide to go ahead and drop. So during the scramble they bring in a falcon and start jamming out our logi. We lose a few guys... start to panic that things are getting real shaky, us not having enough dps to break anything. We lose our sensor damps, our vigilant, then we finally get our cyno into system and we bring in the dreads. Everything seems fine until one of our dreads bounces 100km off. So instead of being able to immediately melt the Archons, we then bring in an Ashimmu and start blapping BS.

TL:DR: Good fight Broken Toys, was a much closer fight than the Battle Report shows. Look forward to more GF's in the future.

http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=15811632

I did fraps the fight but have been too lazy to edit/upload it. Will do eventually.

One of our guys wrote up a bit of a humorous BR for this same roam. For your entertainment pleasure (forgive the liberal application of homoerotic tension and inside jokes):

It was a night like any other. The stars were glimmering off the hull of my Stiletto when Altean called out on comms that we were to evac Provi back to Assah and reship for what was to come. Augoror you say? Yes, captain my captain. As I climbed into the cockpit of my trusty steed, I wondered, have I lived a good life? How will I be remembered if I die this night? No time for such thoughts I tell myself as the undock orders come from our noble commander Altean.

As I undock I see some insignias I know and some I don't. Could it be, could we have some new friends in the gayborhood? The order goes out to warp to G5. As I enter warp the G-Forces thrust my body against my seat like Dave Lash's butt giving another guy a lapdance in one of the infamous Provi gay strip clubs. Our leader has a plan. We are going in light to attract the locals before we blow our load on them. The order goes out for CI to jump into G5 and warp to PF. The trap is set. We jump PF as the rest of the fleet jumps G5. And then....................... CRICKETS!!!!!

The infamous Of Sound Mind gate camp is nowhere to be found. Sighs were heard over comms, boners went flacid. Not to be discouraged, we head to KBP. But once again, all the way to KBP without a real defense fleet to be found. I can't tell if Flying dangerously was trying to fight or run and just got caught, but regardless, they got dumpstered.

http://seventwo.killmail.org/?a=kill_related&kll_id=15810846
http://seventwo.killmail.org/?a=kill_related&kll_id=15810774

The order was given to begin burning to HED-GP. Eye Eye Captain :salute: . The radio crackles and I hear a scout call out a BC / Augoror gang in our path. Is this the fight we came for? Will we all fight with valor? Then I hear it. The beeping. The beeping of a dump truck backing up getting ready to drop it's load on some scrubs. Boosh... they were no match.

http://seventwo.killmail.org/?a=kill_related&kll_id=15811120

Comms are oddly quite after the dump truck pulls away. You see, our work is not done. We are not full on the meat of our foes yet. We have the hunger. We will continue to HED, yes, oh yes we will. And it doesn't take long. Our scouts have been busy and they have a spai in TEST. And test is only a few jumps away. 35 man cruiser gang with logi you say? I'll take one of those please... To go if you could waitress! TEST must have been foaming at the mouth. Cruiser vs cruiser and they have us well outnumbered. But what they didn't know, what they couldn't have known, was we had one thing they didn't. Huge swinging fucking dicks, supported by balls the size of watermelons, and being slung around by one of the best dick slingers known to the parts, Altean (Ok, I know, that's 3 things, but fuck you). Before you know it, we jizzed all over TESTs face and ran down a few stragglers as they screamed help, I'm being raped!!!!!

http://seventwo.killmail.org/?a=kill_related&kll_id=15811097
http://seventwo.killmail.org/?a=kill_related&kll_id=15811167

Such an epic flight so far. Could there possibly be more? Our spai tells us TEST is forming an armor Oracle gang to drop on us, but with 6+ logi so far. Our belly's full, our drinks empty and enough buttsex to last a week, we decide to slow boat back to Assah.

But you see kids, this is where the real story begins. For it is told in the book of Pies, that on a night just like this, when the alpha and the omega are aligned, that there would come a great battle. A battle to rival all others, where a true hero would be born.

But, that is for another post. Until then......

.....It was getting late, very late as we got near the Provi exit. It was time to get some sleep. You know how your mom told you nothing good ever happens after 2am? Well she was right. Nothing good ever happens after 2am. But every once in awhile, something great happens instead :)

The story you are about to read is real. Some of the names and faces have been changed to protect the innocent. Some of the timeline may be questionable. But when your in a foxhole, time stands still and everything and nothing all happens at the same time. Altean might be able to give a more accurate battle-report but I will try to do this justice. :cripes:

The comms crackled once more. Onsooh is bumpin an Exodus scout calls out. The normal Reverb camp we all thought to ourselves. Some chatter on comms, should we, shouldn't we? Then the scout calls out BS on scan, lots of BS. That doesn't sound like Reverb. Could it be? Yes it could. Broken Toys is hitting the Reverb POS in battleships.

What to do, what to do.... The Dread word is tossed out but both sides decline. You see, we are still early in our dating of Exodus. We don't know each other that well. Silentmike, never silent, says not a fuck can be found and he would solo drop if need be. Instead, he is given a more important task. The scout in Onsooh is not cloaky and we need a warp in. Silent does the Bo Duke slide across the hood of his loki and he is off to Onsooh like Rosco P Coletrain was in chaise.

Silent lands off the POS to see a glorious sight. Row after row of battleship stationary just waiting to be plucked from the sky. the warp in has to be perfect as it's on the other side of the POS from the warp in gate. Not to fear, he got this. With warp-in setup the main fleet jumps Gomati and best speeds to Onsooh. Broken Toys has a scout on the Onsooh gate in Assaboner so we know we are going to need to be quick.

As our fleet jumps Assaboner, a Reverb fleet warps into their POS. The Broken Toys comms must have been going off like crazy with both of those happening at the same time. They began to align out, but not to the Shamahi gate as would be expected. Fleet jump jump Onsooh and warp to silent at your designated ranges can be heard over comms. The fleet drops out of warp right as the BS gang warps off. FUCK!!!!!

Not to worry, they are in BS and we in cruisers. Where can they go that we cannot follow? Scouts are speard out, probes are dropped and the majority of the fleet goes to Shamahi, their logical exit gate. Our original onsooh scout calls out he has them and the order is given to warp in and start grabbing tackle. You could cut the suspense with a knife. Will they run or will they fight. THEY WILL FIGHT I SAY. FOR SPARTA!!!!

I do not know the time for certain, but it was before 06:19 eve time that the battle began, because at 06:19, the valiant blackbird of Sir Tits McGee was assploaded. She was a good ship, a sturdy ship, but no match for the BS of Broken toys. They had first blood. Could we let this stand? Will this stand? No I say, it will not. It will not!

http://seventwo.killmail.org/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=15811633

It wasn't long until I hear crys of cyno up echoing across comms. 2 archons in, 2 archons in. Shit Just Got Real Ya'll!

We manage to take down a tempest and 2 cruisers even under archon support. But things were not going well. It took all repping power to overheated to fuck all to keep Altean alive the first time they primaried him. We brought him back from structure the first time. But then it happened.

http://seventwo.killmail.org/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=15811721
http://seventwo.killmail.org/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=15811632

Exodus is now calling targets.

You see at this time, it is already 06:29. We have been duking it out for over 10 minutes already. We are slowly sliding down a slippery slope. What can be done we are all thinking to ourselves! Exodus asks if we mind if they call in backup. Yes please, but their backup cannot come. Fuck. Without a fuck to give we decide to get our slut on. I have no idea who called it, but spiderman would be proud as a burn was had back to Assah to hop in the Potato gun. 3 dreads are manned including 1 from Exodus and a Nid is powered up. It's time to separate the men from the boys you see.

Exodus raced a cyno from Assah. No one had thought to bring a condom because we don't slut around on first dates. But extraordinary pussy requires extraordinary action. Caps are called to undock as cyno warps in. He is gonna get us 30km off the enemy fleet he says. Cyno up... jump jump jump.... siege red, siege red..... fuck one of the dreads is bumped and flying away fast. DOUBLE FUCK the enemy is 50KM away. Silent loads long range dread ammo and an exodus guy calls out that he is bringing more.

At this point shit is a clusterfuck. We are so far out of range we can't break hardly shit. I think we get the Arazu down that still has a cyno up, but the BS and the carriers are just too far away to put on the damage and they are moving making them hard to get good blows on. Multiple ships are primary. Did I say clusterfuck yet?

Ok, stop, think, what to do. We should have warped dreads off and back in. Fuck, why did I seige. Stop, must think. Then the clouds part and both the angels of fail and glory shined down upon us. Two things happened you see. And together those 2 things would become a symphony of Cruiser and Dread blaps as Reverb would later say in local. If only they knew the truth, the truth of a hero being born.

So what were those two things you asked? First, for some unknown reason, the enemy gang began approaching our sieged dreads. No, seriously. No, I'm not joking. That might have worked out better, but you see, Altean, had transformed from a catapiller Thorax into a magnificent Ashimu butterfly and was just jumping into Onsooh. As the space time continum projecter landed on field, the tide turned. What could previously barely be hit with the dreads, was now MELTING ! Boosh BS down, Boosh BS down. Shit was melting so fast we couldn't even call targets. We had to switch to broadcast to start pre-locking faster.

Broken Toys called for their fleet to bail. And we can see from the killmails the carriers tried to refit to stabs but we had too many points, or they just melted too fast once resists were gone to align out.

http://seventwo.killmail.org/?a=kill_related&kll_id=15811762 :headshot:

Victory had been snatched from the jaws of defeat. Cigars were lit. Faps were had. Field was looted. The last ship had gone down nearly 30 minutes after the fight started. This wasn't no 2 pump chump fight.

I was up for 2 more hours looting the cap mods and fighters of the field. First to a safe spot for cans then next door to a station. Finally at 2:30am I hit the hay.

But I feel dirty now. We had sex on the first date AND we saved a Reverb POS. Now I understand what it means to put in the dirty work.

Well played all, well played. :golfclap:

There's some articles on themittani.com and EN24 that seem to summarise whats going on. My understanding is simply sov gone, corps leaving, gg. From memory and what I'm reading on alliance forums BUSA went to PL, MVN is joining Black Legion, and LAMBF is rumoured to be joining Razor with some of the leftovers intending to form a new Russian alliance to operate out of Stain.

Not quite, the HBC/CFC NIP is slowly wearing away. Started with both sides cancelling the no-afk-cloaky-camping part and I'm sure it won't take too long before both sides get bored of not having enough people to shoot and go for each other for a bit.

I dont know what HBC/CFC stands for, I'm gonna guess goons is one and test is the other?

CFC is Goons and friends (mostly ex NC from what I've seen) and HBC is Test and friends.

I suspect one side or the other will get bored and think that it's too far to travel to shoot russians so might as well go after the other group since they are wanting fights as well.

January 10 2013, 11:32:57 AM
from what I can tell the whole 0.0 situation (culled from my forum lurking, research, a few contacts, and the application of my own analytic skill) is as follows:

The north: the CFC is composed of the resurgent Goonswarm, Reorganized NC elements (about the only remaining old NC power is Razor, and that's no surprise) and new groups recruited from across eve, rules most everything. Their empire stretches from vale to cloud ring and encompasses every conquerable station north of those two regions. They're currently engaged in a brush war with Black legion who've swelled their ranks with MV and allied with other venal residents to challenge the CFC in venal over tech moons.

The Southwest: The HBC composed primarily of test and PL with multiple newer smaller alliances seems to have the west pretty locked down, with the exception of querious, having ground away -A- and it's allies and crushed the old stain wagon alliances. It seems -A-'s continuous mistreatment of it's 'friends' helped more than anything with this, as most of test's new allies in the area seem to be composed of former SoCo pilots who finally got tired of eating shit. It seems that when -A- abandoned ROL. to it's fate in the face of an HBC backed coup in the form of the Unclaimed alliance, pretty much everyone decided that they couldn't ever be counted on and abandoned them to the hell of their own making.

Case in point is the colescing N3 coalition, which seems to be lead by Nulli Secunda, who it looks like are back in the south to take what they want after abandoning the roll of punching bag for the CFC/HBC supercoalition in the service of an neglectful -A- some months back. N3 seems to have a lot of punch including the aforementioned nulli, as well as NC., Raiden, and the initiative among others. After gorging on former -A- holdings they're now looking north to the galactic east.

The East: Solar seems to be in deep shit right now. From Curse, Gypsy Band formed a small coalition and teamed up with RA (seriously? again?) in a war for scalding pass, wicked creek and insmother. To the South the emergent N3 coalition has engaged in hostilities, this probably owes to several factors. First and foremost solar's looking weak, with other entities attacking it, and second the only other neighbor is composed of Test PL and lots of former ROL and could probably crush them if they really wanted to. It also likely doesn't hurt that SOLAR has most recently been allied with -A- who may have achieved the singular honor of breaking the most promises of any alliance in eve history (seriously topping even bob by my count now). Meanwhile on the north eastern end of solar's territory it seems that RAZOR has set out to burn cobalt edge for fun. Then Gypsy accidentally imploded and now RA is trying to take the command of their allies in a bid to reconquer their homeland for what will be the fourth(?) time. N3 is having none of this and is engaging in a full scale bid to drive solar back into the drone regions and cut off RA's eastern ambitions. On top of all this, PL has deployed east and is mostly gunning for solar and co. It looks like a road trip campaign coupled with retribution for SOLAR's previous support of -A-, they seem to be engaging with the drone regions alliances, which makes sense if they're looking for fights and kills, the drone residents, while not often thought of as the best pilots in new eden, are nonetheless scrappy as fuck.

N3 seems to have a lot of punch including the aforementioned nulli, as well as NC., Raiden, and the initiative among others.

Just wanted to correct this since it's the part I actually know. Raiden. and INIT are both HBC members, they moved away from the -A- led Southern Coalition in Delve when that turned bad. Both were given about 10 systems in Querious from memory after HBC/CFC rolled those regions.

The other alliances that make up N3 include PANGU who have been bros to Nulli since we held Delve, NC. of course, Nexus, Kadeshi, Mildy Intoxicated and a few others whose names elude me at the moment. To add to that, N3 are currently red to HBC (with the exception of NC. who I believe are blue to PL) but both sides are operating under a NIP in the interest of putting the hurt on their common enemy of -A- and now Solar. Yes they have had fleets side by side against -A- and I imagine there will be more of it against Solar, but we are still red. N3 members would often roam down to HED to get get fights out of TEST and we are being encouraged to shoot PL in Insmother as long as we're not busy shooting Solar.

There is quite a lot happening in the south / south east, i'm suprised their is so little content. This is probably due to the lack of major capital engagements that we thought we were going to get, however large fleets are formed every day with hope of a good fight, we have the odd subcap fleet fight, but i think our blob may be a bit too big, FAZOR don't want to commit to anything that could remotely end up as an expensive loss and resort to T1 fleets, maybe the odd nano gang, when they need to defend they just bring bombers. I expected more!!

As things stand imo N3 are grinding the sov without real opposition.

Are goons gonna show in numbers to halt the advance? I don't know.

Would be good to hear from a RAZOR / FA perspective.

I guess N3 could just move the fight to USTZ and see how they like getting up really really early for a few weeks.

Anyways far as I can tell this little deployment into the Alonelands is pretty much just a sov grind. But hey you never know SOLFAZOR my get their spirits bolstered by this most recent victory and we'll actually get fights again...one can dream.

Fight's like that are not going to happen often. Solar had a jammer up, and had blap dreads and slowcats on the field. RA jumped in prematurely, forcing the rest of the N3 and PL to jump in, where they got bombed to hell by a wave of void followed by several conventional bombing runs. FAZOR jumped in in a t-1 cruiser fleet, and did nothing but eat up a couple dozen volley's from N3, which was time Solar spent destroying N3 battleships.

N3 with PL in the area has complete capital superiority, and in sov warfare nowdays that's all that matters. If that last fight hadn't been under a jammer, N3 and PL would have dropped a hundred or more slowcats without a second thought. It will be a long grind, but Solar doesn't stand a chance unless CFC directly intervenes on Solar's behalf, and even then HBC formal would jump in and the result would be the same.

Remember when the big SOV wars were interesting? I miss those days.

Well ED is giving up the goat. 36'ish systems that no longer need to be grinding. Apparently they screwed up a bit while doing it. Alluding to screw up http://www.eveskunk.com/?messageID=321210033

And some more random mail porn about the obligatory "we love you guys!" and "It's with a sad heart" mails. http://www.eveskunk.com/?messageID=321122211 http://www.eveskunk.com/?messageID=321120662

Other than CTA's for structure grinds and well...structure grinds nothing really happened in the Alonelands this weekend. I'm guessing a lot of WoT was played during grinds. There we're a few roams as per usual but targets are getting farther and farther away and with smaller fleets. Although the sov map does show Solar dropping sov in the Vale so LiF can move in. But that...that is another thread.

Big fight in U9 as I'm sure most know about already. Wasn't there. Getting reports from mates, MJD Rokh's made their debut and it was a smashing success.

What little I know. System was initially jammed by Solar. Solar bubble camps the gate with Nagas, Loki's, bombers, logi, and assorted BS's. Nulli Rokh fleet jumps in and activates MJD's and "poof" Rokhs are away and safe. The battle on the gate begins at this point? (not sure it the battle was on the gate) N3/PL log in stealth supers who incap the jammer and then cynos go up and it's all over but the primary calling. EVE-Kill has not come back up as of this writing so BR will have to wait.

If anyone can give the "I was there" report that would be awesome. This is just pieced together from a few text messages, jabber pings and inference from kugu posts.

It seems there will be a war, just not fought over CFC or HBC space. Solar is still losing space to N3, PL is taking geminate (whyyyyy does this always happen) and FA/RZR moving down hasn't really done shit for Solar. Solar pets enacted 'Martial Law' for this mornings ops, systems were still taken by us and in a meeting tonight they revealed they will be receiving even more help although are keeping it secret. The last thing that can save this sinking ship is a full CFC move to help Solar. We will know 100% in the morning.

Here is the 1400 person fight. Solar had 40 supercaps and all that listed on the KB under the jammer. Solar logged off supers, NC. logged on 30 supers that were logged off in system prior to the jammer going up and took jammer down.

We engaged FA/RZR in their home system to stop them from linking up with Solar under the jammer, we tested out the new Gentle Cats~ and thankfully avoided the 1400 man lag fest.

So BCA has thrown in the towel just mere days after PL moved in and began re-enforcing every imaginable structure in their space. Reports are still a bit sketchy at the moment but this EVEmail from Sullen to the membership is pretty telling. http://www.eveskunk.com/?messageID=321364278. So it seems BCA will try and pull a Voltron and form into a new allinace (S E D I T I O N). Some disenfranchised members have already left for greener pastures and some have even joined N3 alliances seeking revenge.

Kinda disappointing after the rousing speech that was delivered to the membership earlier this week. But anyone who has played EVE long enough knows meetings like that are really just to stop failcasscades while the HC dreams up some plan to save the "family".

In other news the final timer for the station in U9 came out today. Here's the BR http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=16587268 although that doesn't look right, maybe by the time some of you read this it will be a bit more accurate. But looking at the fleet composition one would think that N3 is just using the timers to get fights now. Opps apparently this was just a skirmish and the timer for the station is in another 24 hours.

I'm guessing S E D I T I O N was put to sleep with a holding corp since they have an alliance logo already ingame and CCP isn't that quick to grant those. I think one of the pre reqs is that an alliance must be active for like 6 months or something.

Other than that not much to report on the goings. I actually haven't been on the front lines for the last few days. But a quick glance at the sov map indicates that N3/PL and still making progress as all the former BCA sov has fallen now.

Is SOLAR waiting for the right moment to strike? We don't know. Will FAZOR become a force in this conflict? Probably not, with a good dose of "No" thrown in. One thing is for certain there are still a lot of structures to grind.

As we enter a new decade of eve the South once again seems to be the hot spot of eve. Whether it be the massive defensive fights in delve, the newly begun invasion of Paragon Soul by TRIBAL BAND, the continued Russian threat to Esoteria by DARKNESS OF DESPAIR, the possible re-emergence of -A- in their invasions of Catch, the disbanding of RAIDEN, or the splintering of TROLL we see the breeding ground for a lot of good fights to come. In an attempt to cover this massive region I will try and get testimonials of the parties involved and attempt to keep any bias I have toward one alliance or another out of the equation.

Anyways, This is just the beginning to what I hope will be some very good battle reports. Good luck, have fun, and I will see you all on the battlefield

We quickly formed up rokhs, and headed over there to fight it out. Anyways we landed 100 off the SBU and began the fight from which they warped off leaving a couple logi which we killed. The finally warped back to the gate after a while and caught a tribe Welpclone fleet on the other side. We jumped in to begin the fight telling the rokhs to starburst MJD but unfortunately they decided to primary me off the field so we had to bail but it was fun while it lasted. Good Fight TDC.

Kill Report (http://fromtheash.com/kb/index.php/kill_related/1200/adjacent/)

Just to give you a heads up with what is going on around Feythabolis, over the past week or two we have reinforcing systems like crazy in an attempt to get a foot hold. Anyways we couldn't fight for some of the first timers simply because the dinner coalition formed an awesome battleship fleet of 200-400 (With only around 30 TROLL dudes most of whom are in trash ships). I was sad that I only brought 90 dudes but it happens you win some you lose some. Good Job TDS.

Anyways later that night we dropped more SBU's and Phreeze put together a 45 man fleet with battleships and other armor ships and started hitting our SBU's. I quickly pinged out to my dudes to get into ahacs and we jumped on a titan and bridged over there to get a fight. We proceeded to jump in killing a little support on the gate and following their battleship fleet to the station. We blapped some of their support while they docked and waited a little. Phreeze contacted me and we bropacted not to kill each other in the name of good fights. Anyways he shipped in more logi while we received another guardian and a damnation. We had to jump to ZS- to get our reinforcements and Phreeze warped his battleships to 30 off the gate. Anyways, we jumped back in and immediately pinged up and back down into the center of their fleet and the brawl commenced. I called targets on the oracles and the zealots first and we began burning them down shifting to their logi after we finished them. i called people to maintain points on the geddons as we went after the smaller squishy targets. Anyways after we began tearing through logi, Phreeze called them to deagress and my hero's managed to maintain point on a geddon and geddon navy issue which we burned down quickly while calling GF in local. Thanks for the awesome fight Phreeze. Im sure I just got lucky here but can't wait to brawl with you again.

Greetings and Salutations!

I've noticed that this thread is not as lively as the others, however things are happening down south -
For instance the StainWagon coalition now holds 3 systems in Esoteria, 2 for DD and one (after a failed attempt (http://kb-dda.ru/battle/b7531/) of retention) was reclaimed by C0ven.

PL have announced them moving to a "better" home port (Amamake), in order to have better reaction time as they have failed to catch DD supers (http://kb-dda.ru/battle/b7511/) on field last time...

So for me, it feels like the tide has turned in that endless blobfare, since the HBC imploded, what say you?

Well looks like the "here for good fights not invasions" idea is officially evolving into the sov war everyone is expecting under the guise that "since test won't fight we need to sbu/take sov to provoke them." it seems things are about to get real interesting though as NC gets a foothold in Delve, Goons begin talk of a full scale invasion and PL takes a step back for a clearer view while at the same time Pizza has blued with TEST for Delve defense and Elo seems to be taking an interest in doing the same. Looks like the invaders may have a bit more on their plate than first expected.. And everyone will have to look over their shoulders as PL prepares to hot drop every party in town.

Interested to see how the next few weeks play out

All invasions these days are "gub fites" from the start...that’s propaganda 101....then it all changes when the SBUs get anchored.

But I thought Sov warfare is broken and such a yawn that wars dont happen?

Pfft...They pretty much told the devs sov war is working as intended and is the exact counter to the "blue balls" defence strategy that will produce fights with proper SBU placements.

All I can hope for at this point is that somewhat equal forces team up against one-another where real fights can have a chance.

Flight of a thousand supers: in an attempt to revitalise the flagging economy, Goonswam, PL and NC. have agreed a three way supercapital only brawl. With no jumping out, logging off or reinforcements allowed, the system will be flooded with probing alts to ensure any attempt at safe spotting is rapidly compromised. This is purely a fight to the bitter end, last man (or woman) standing wins.

Would be pretty cool though.

Meantime the goodfightz not-an-invasion-really SBU-trolling roadshow in the South will continue until either one side gets bored or the other trolls themselves into non-existence. Pragmatism being what is it, what started as content creation will inevitably creep into 'omg invasion' if you find yourself pushing on an open door. I suppose that's pretty boring to write about though, so better to stick to the long diatribes by relatively new players who still thing Eve politics is planned in advance.

>Win strategic objectives

All that matters. Its a war for Sov, not an efficency comp. Yea yea long-war = isk way whatever. IMO this will not be a long war.

My perspective from lastnight;

Since for whatever reason I was unable to get on the right coms and/or didnt get the invite, boredom forced me to go roaming around fountain looking for cfc to harass in my bomber, when I noticed 70ish peeps in J5A. Headed down there to see what was going on, and bam there were now like 100 in local.

Skiped thru a gate camp on the EI- gate and warped to the SBU/TCUs looking for hte blob. Found a CFC POS on the M1 TCU owned by Test in J5A and watched local spike time after time with Goons, SMA, FA, Li3, TNT, and a few other minor pets. Thought the fight was going to be there /shrug.

CFC kept comming in, and once local hit 1k in local they were cheering and self-strokeing blasting local with all the latest photoshop pro-cfc propaganda esp since there was only like 4-5 non-cfc in system at the time.

Then slowly came in test and friends (NC./PL ect), hitting 1200 local, then hitting over 2k. Seemed like it was going to be a good fight.

Then goons either jumped or bridged into B-D in Cloud Ring, the next system over. Seems they were standing down or running away. Then some bitching about goons exploiting node crashes and the like.

So test and friends warped to B-D gate in chase and jumped thru, finding the CFC there also slightly off gate and the shit hit the fan. TiDi 9%, the whole works, was brutal. Took ALONG time to self-pod express in 9% tidi. So from there I have nothing to report - I prob missed all the good capital cyno ins, so someone else please pick up the report from there.


So was the fight really planned for J5A and cfc decided to try somthing diff, node crash exploit or somthing else when they moved to B-D? B-D is Goons space...so WTF?

I was really fortunatue to stumble along this huge battle starting up and being able to lob a few bombs around to whore up some CFC navy tempests...fun night!

XenosisReaper
June 10 2013, 05:19:39 PM
Goons wanted to take the iHub in JSA

TEST batphoned everyone to stop it (local added up to over 2k between JSA and B-D at some parts)

Goons decided that JSA wasn't worth fighting PL/TEST/BL/TRIBE at the same time, so they jumped back into B-D

TEST and co got greedy and crashed the B-D gate, as Goons were already set up and TEST were jumping into a 9% tidi system they got wrecked because logis couldn't land reps fast enough

Goons fell back to station and TEST followed, resulting in huge TEST losses because goons could reship faster

Everyone went home an Goons claim "ISK VICTORY" while TEST claim "SOV VICTORY"

And then goons somehow reinforced the JSA iHub anyway, so we need to do the whole thing again next time

edit: rough isk numbers are: 70 bill lost for the CFC, 120bill lost for TEST and co (mostly TEST)

Well, you won 1 objective, but lost 7 others at the same time. Granted, the one you won was almost certainly the most important.

My BR:

Got home from the nats game (comeback win woo) pretty late, expecting something to have happened one way or another. Turns out the fight hadn't started yet. No capfleet because of NC. supers on standby so I hopped in my bomber ready to put some nerds in the 0wnzone. We set up on the ihub, just in time to see TEST's great run on the PL domis (heh). As the anti-bombing dictor bubbles around the TEST apoc fleet started to drop we aligned to the ihub, only for the system to go totally unresponsive while our mainfleets jumped out. Our clients were working but the game was not. Personally I slowboated from about 300km off the ihub to about 90km at 3/4 speed and 10% tidi and was beginning to seriously worry about decloaking from just running into the enemy fleet when the system finally started to respond again. We got set up back on our perches and warped in when we saw the last bubble drop. Unfortunately it was yet another bug so we landed just inside the PL hictor bubble. I wasn't decloaked on land and slowboated towards freedom but unfortunately about 1500km from the edge of the bubble an orbiting loki got me. I then found out that I hadn't reset my clone from Delve so I had to ask a Pizza guy to pod me from 319. When I finally got back to B-D I ragelogged, watched game of thrones, and missed us flushing the TEST fleets.

Better BR from Beffah (TEST SKYMISTRESS)


Formup was scheduled for 0250, the relevant timers (J5A ihub armor cycle and PNQY station shield) were to exit RF at 0340 ad 0350, respectively. Fleets had been pinged for all day, these were that important to defend, given the relatively lackluster turnout of the J5A shield timer.
Dingo had foxcats, Esildra had rohks, Gherrit White had ECM, Silentmajority bombers, with varied people doing reinforcement runs all night. After bridging to the midpoint, foxcats waited on our bridging titan, waiting for our dates for the evening to be a wee bit closer. The call was made, and foxcats bridged in, rohks behind. The CFC fleets were split, with the TFIs camping NC out of system and tengus on the ihub grid. We were followed shortly thereafter in system by Nulli (in gokufleet) and Black Legion. Reps were applied to the ihub in short order.
Around this time, mistakes were made. Standings had been set to everyone save PL just before this, but Manny had said not to worry about them, they were only shooting CFC. This was relayed around our FC ranks, all well and good. Then a cyno goes up on the grid our bombers were set up on, followed by yelling of "OH GOD COME BACK I DIDN'T MEAN IT" "fuck" and "Grath is going to kill me." Temp standings were applied immediately thereafter.
At this point, and I apologize, but my internet kept crapping out and dropping packets, so things might be out of order a wee. Things were shot, and CFC began extracting back towards B-D. Once insuring there was support left on the ihub, we began our align towards the gate. Goons jumped, then we jumped. 10% TiDi across the board the entire time, the warp took an eternity, and the jump-tunnel animation effect lasted long enough to go boil a pot of ramen for an early breakfast. Shortly after the bulk of the fleets hit B-D, the J5A node was taken offline and remapped, according to error messages players got when they tried to reconnect.
After finishing dinner and tidying up, grid was loaded in B-D and we continued to pummel the CFC with our combined fleets. Tengus and TFIs popped with satisfying regularity, and CFC comms were full of calls to reship, and to "SHOOT THOSE GODDAMNED BLACKBIRDS." We ourselves had regular reinforcement fleets bridging in. This went on for a good while, until the CFC began aligning to their station. TEST FCs and target callers were primaried quickly, and brave heroes stepped up to fill the void, and we quickly retaliated in kind - RIP Laz's tengu.
At this point, Elo pipes up over skype that he has a sling bubble on the station, and there can be mass TFI carnage on station. Eagerly, the varied fleets start aligning. CFC warped, we warped a minute or so later.
At this point, let it be said that warping 68AU in 10% TiDi is the worst thing ever. About 5 minutes in, Elo decided that it was time for bed and began to extract his fleet. We were still ~48AU out, firmly committed. Perhaps we got a wee too greedy, in reveling in the bloodbath of lost SP, but the foxcats quickly ended up in bubbles. After we finally landed - we killed things, they killed things, and Dingo made the call to began extracting. Dictors and hics were called primary, and most of the fleet made it out. Subcaps at this point began extracting back towards Karan.
While all this was going on, two other things were occuring. A band of amazingly brave carriers had parked themselves on PNQY station, that other timer we had, and had been repping it. Zvero was poked to get a small support fleet up so they could safely drop triage, and the station was pushed out of danger.
The other thing that happened was a fleet of slowcats, supers, and titans, going out to quickly cause as much chaos to the CFC's advancement. SBUs were killed where they were vulnerable, blockers dropped. Towers were quickly reinforced. 4-EP, the station GSF dropped as a forward base, was pushed into shield reinforcement uncontested, and cap fleet took the liberty of incapping their cloning service - guess they'll be spending a lot of time repping that up. Caps then cynoed onto the J5A ihub to finish repping it to levels to reset both shield and armor timers. The instant the ihub hit 26% shield, caps moonwalked out as hostile hictors were landing on grid. CFC immediately pushed the ihub back into shield RF, but that's what we expected, so nbd.

Goons wanted to take the iHub in JSA

Goons decided that JSA wasn't worth fighting PL/TEST/BL/TRIBE at the same time, so they jumped back into B-D



The CFC better be ready to take these fights, because thats how its going to be. Especially over the next week as more alliances get on the comms / networks / travel routes up to Fountain to fight them. Its only going to get worse I think.

Test and friends were blaping CFC dreads off the field (~5-6 I think) swiftly as the server went down last night in a nice little brawl, pretty much cleared the field of them just as the countdown notification during the last 2 min. Incredible timing really. Who knows if it was just an escalationtest tho.

I know this is speculation and all, but with Black Legion & Co. up north poking CFC space, and the Fountain invasion not going well for CFC so far....things are not looking good for the CFC.

We will see what happens as we have yet to have the real capital fleets come out to play. That will be when the fighting really starts.

But ones has to believe that the CFC diplo team is overheated and taking damage while they try to flip current Test allies or strike a deal of some kind because right now the momentum is not on their side.

Well in typical goon fashion, goons didn't adapt in the least bit, while the people fighting them did.

Goons just lost a baby Titan after they showed up to defend it with the exact same tfi+celestis comp they fielded vs ahacs earlier.

In nonshocker, people with actual brains brought a different fleet and pubbiestomped it into the ground. GG.

And they also lost 2 nyx in fountain to a test dread fleet.

Gonna take some serious overheating of the dmg control for them to spin this. ;)

On the plus side, we are seeing a whole range of different fleet comps coming to play, which is a nice change from last year's endless drake blobs. Gallente is making an appearance in bs fleet again and even, I'm told, Caldari. Carebears unite, your mission boat is relevant again. Well, a bit. Not really. Anyway, apparently rather than try and spin the super and titan losses, our favourite impartial, balanced and objective news source has chosen not to mention it at all but focus on the 'hilarity' of killing a few Napocs with a caracal swarm. Anyway, can someone ask the I-Hub timers to come out in Euro TZ more often please?

They'll probably do a story where they call TEST blobbers and gloat about killing 7 dreads (before we killed 2 nyx, 5ish carriers and aborted a super)

Last night before I went to bed was a very good night, saved the system and iHubbed it, helicopter dicked a whole region of SBUs that took TEST a week to put up, and dunked some fleets. Then I wake up this morning and no question things took a definite turn for the worse. Lost 2 nyxes, 2 CSAAs with titans in them, and like 70 or 80 I think TFIs. The pendulum has finally swung the other way. Now we just need to get it going back our way again, continue taking systems and dunking fleets. I don't think anyone thought this would be a steamroll after all the major players in nullsec showed up to help TEST, if they did they're a moron and if you think we did you're a moron too.

as for Gallente BS fleets, those are a terrible fleetcomp from tribe that hasn't done anything but lose. and Friznit you are dumb, TM.com has been a few days slow all war (look at timings of postings of major battles). I am sure something about last night will be up in the next few days.

I think TRIBE were trying to get part of Catch, but they're losing corps faster than they can deploy

quick lulzy timeline of recent announcements i could find (i have an alt in there that i barely log on with/check forums)


Beginning immediately, we're moving to the north, to Catch. We've blued Init and related alliances as well as Walltreipers. We will be taking space in the region as soon as we are able to successfully project power there.

This marks the next major step in our alliance. It presents the opportunity to grow and improve as an alliance which is something we need and cannot get deep in the south. There will be numerous challenges presented by this move, but I rest well knowing we can rise to meet them. Once we can fleet up as we should and the space is secure, we will begin reinventing many of the internal functions of the alliance. But first, we need to take this challenge and do what I know we can.

Beginning tomorrow there will be numerous convoy fleets going up. Cyno chains can be had. More details about this have been given to your CEOs, look to them for guidance. Expect more words coming soon.


9 days ago the alliance was given an order to evac non-pvp assets to Stain as we knew that TEST was leaving and our standings with NC were tenuous.

Four days ago I let everyone know that we are moving into Catch to take sov from Init in an amicable exchange. We set up move ops over the weekend, had titan bridges straight into Catch.

Now, we need to have our fleets in Catch so we can cover the sov transfers. However, people still haven't moved. This is unacceptable. By Thursday, PB will no longer be accessible. Any assets you failed to move with a 12 day warning will be trapped there.

We need everyone who fights into Catch. So this means everyone. We are basing from this system: http://evemaps.dotlan.net/system/YHN-3K The sov and station there are owned by a transfer corp controlled by Tribe. This was Init's first overture of trust. It is up to us now to demonstrate we are worthy of that trust. We must safely transfer sov, but we need our fleets in region to do it.


YHN ihub and station have been reinforced by a 30+ dread fleet of -DD- and friends. 2 days 5 hours on the timer from now.

That fight, or lack thereof, should be tonight btw.

If they do manage to hold on to space there, i guess the question is, who is gonna farm them? Oli Robbo, are your guys gonna follow them again? Seems like you get to shoot them in any region they go to :P

p.s. these graphs (http://evemaps.dotlan.net/alliance/Tribal_Band/stats/2013-08-01:2013-08-22) don't look so bad, but i think a lot of those members/corps are farmers/dead weight. I guess i'll see how many they can form up for this timer tonight.

We came with 100 people in fleet. But with no help, we ended up spinning ship. then -A- + others reinforces YHN-3K and GE-8JV w/o a single fight.

So a few nights ago, had some fun in Catch, although no killmails were generated. Our static dumped us into Catch, so we poked around, but decided to close it the next night, as it had just gone EOL, so we didn't want to deal with it, since we weren't getting anything from it anyway. So I jumped the Orca through and back, then through... oh shit it collapsed. So I'm in an Orca in deep Catch. Luckily, we had some other nullsec links, one of which was only 14 jumps away. Unfortunately, it was 14 jumps through a pipe that included an occupied station system. I advanced the Orca at a rate of about one jump every 10 minutes for a few jumps before we decided to switch to looking for a new WH. We found a lot of good links to all kinds of space, all except for any to empire.

I was probing out a C6 chain that seemed to never end, while my other two corp mates were working on a few other holes. Eventually, we found a hole back to a pocket lowsec system, where we eventually got the Orca back into our wormhole, but it took a while. Made for a really long logi trip too, since we brought it back in with fuel.

TRIBE's done. We fought valiantly though in YH, Test with their A-hac. there's bunch of PIZZA bombers, PL talwars fleet, Bombers Bar joined in with random goons with them. Sometimes we don't know who to shoot cause PL are red to our overview, our FC keeps reminding the fleet to hold fire. unless its -A- or -DD-.

Our logistics weren't able to bring enough ship in YH being camped 24/7. So yeah we lost, we don't have re-inforcement, not enough ship on contracts. Unlike the russian. I have fun though.

After Fountain and Catch and If TRIBE's will go to NPC null? I might as well go back to Syndicate with the moonies (ISF heh). My sov adventures are over. Hopefully, they might accept me back. woot!

And here's a good BR posted in TRIBE forums, and was granted permission to share by Nazoraios Zosimos.


A Battle Report of YHN
Author: Nazoraios Zosimos

As of this piece of writing YHN-3K (Tribal Band's former staging system) has fallen, but that's not where I would like to start off with this report. Let me take you all back to the magical time when Darkness of Despair and -A- dropped 45 dreads on the YHN-3K station and put it into reinforcement for the coming conflict.

Right before the station was put into reinforcement, there had been a lot of in-fighting happening within Tribal Band. Many corporations did not want to leave Period Basis and Paragon Soul, and a few even left the alliance over it. A 48 hour final warning from Triget (our alliance leader) had just gone out (after 12 days notice to move to NRT4-U), People finally were getting the message that they needed to clear out of the south.

At first, a sense of being completely screwed seemed to loom over everyone's heads. We had no answer as an alliance to 45 dreads (especially when we were still barely in YHN-3K). Needless to say everyone in the alliance was told to keep with the move, and bring their pvp ships up anyway from NRT4-U. Some of them parked directly in YHN-3K, and others decided to move to DSS-EZ which was a npc station only two jumps away. The move was still on, but now with a more important sense of urgency.

That night a command meeting was held. We had two days to come up with something, anything to defend the station armor timer. Suggestions were made, and directions were given. We would report back in 24 hours with the progress we had made.

The next day by the time our meeting came around the alliance had tripled our numbers in YHN-3K, and more were on the way. SRP was good, logistics was moving ships into system rapidly, contracts were going up, contacts with other alliances had been made, and plans were being introduced.

One such plan was to head to TG-Z23 with a group of Sabre's where the Russian’s and -A- had a staging POS with a titan they were using to bridge their fleets and bubble them. The biggest concern we had was their dreads, and with no less than four NPC stations in that system. We had no idea which station they would be undocking from. It was decided we would have the HIC's cloaked up at all their NPC stations while the main group of cloaked Sabre's would be at their POS waiting for their fleet, and drop bubbles on them as soon as they started to bridge. Hopefully it would buy us some time and split their fleet up, so we could rep the YHN-3K station from 25% to 50% but nobody knew. Ten pilots were selected from a corp in Tribe (with lots of pirating experience) we knew could get the job done. Their corp leader accepted, and went forward handling the logistics. If we could stall their fleets and dreads we stood a chance. It was a long shot with lots of unknowns.

The next day I got home from work with about three hours left on the reinforce timer and got right into TS. Things were coming together nicely. TEST was in and bringing 130 AHAC's and 60 bombers. Bombers Bar was set to help and bring at least 50+ bombers to be lead by Cahvus of Tribe. Ships were being pumped out to alliance members. We had one full fleet of battleships, and were filling a second. Not to mention the 40+ bombers Tribe had too.

The Sabre operation to head to TG-Z23 was on, and was now called "Operation Dreyman." It was named after the two people who were put in charge of the op. The alliance was providing their ships in DSS-EZ, so they gathered there and left for the staging system early.

About an hour before the station timer was up, TEST was on the move heading to us. We had a Titan in HED-GP ready to bridge them to a system where they would sit till we would cyno them into YHN-3K. The same was done with Bombers Bar, but what was funny about this was the Titan that was bridging the fleets was not in a POS, and was warping around in open space. Fuck it.

About 45 minutes from the timer now and the enemy Titan came online in its POS, and their fleet was starting to form outside of the POS shield. We had HIC's on all their npc stations and at the POS ready.

As the station timer came closer to an end, we got our fleets ready and waited. The timer was up and the Titan in the POS in TG-Z23 started to bridge the 240 DD and -A- Rokh's that had gathered. Operation Dreyman went into action and immediately bubbled their fleet cutting off 120 rokh's from bridging out, splitting their fleet. Holy shit it was working.

DD and -A- decided that they would engage us anyway even with their fleet split, and got bombed relentlessly. More DD and -A- warped in, more bombs were fired. The whole time the HIC group slowing down their forces. Tribal Band was holding the field and our carriers were actively repping our station. The battle was on!

Right, so the reps on the station. The funny thing about that was that we were supposed to have 12-16 carriers repping up the station. We had 6. Fuck. It was looking like we weren't going to be able to rep the station in time, but we had to work with what we had. It didn't help that we lost 6 other carriers earlier that week to NC. for no real objective.

40 minutes of Tribe fighting DD and -A-, bombing, PL in Talwars, xxPIZZAxx in Tornado's, re-ship after re-ship, cyno's, and just about everything in-between our HIC fleet reported dreads in TG-Z23 heading to the POS. They traveled in small groups, and we bubbled the crap out of them stopping them effectively, at least for a little while. This caused DD to login two more Titans making it possible for dreads to bridge out freely. By that time Tribe was almost out of ships, TEST was dead from xxPIZZAxx and PL, and everyone else, and our reps on station had only gone from 25% to 32%. Well short of the 50% we needed. It was over. The station and carriers started taking damage, and the carriers docked.

Gud fights were had in local from both sides, and the rest is history.

Operation Dreyman

by: Johann Landier
Here are some additions and corrections for posterity:

Operation Dreyman was put together by Draiyman of The One Track Mind a highly
Experienced PvP Pilot who also earlier in the week sacrificed his archon to try and save the IHUB. He also shipped
in and built all the Sabres for the op

Dre from Celestial Armageddon hand picked the team and managed to get everything in place without so much
As a single word being leaked. Draiyman and Dre led the team.

Hudders is just plain a Bad Ass. He warped in so many times bubbled up subcaps on their Titan and skated away
He should be given a gold medal.

There were others whose names I don't know but they managed to just plain keep the dreads out of the game for 40 minutes.


In HED we absolutely did not have a Titan in space bridging people. Our Titan bridged the TEST in from HED on a POS like normal. The bombers bar and TEST bombers fleet were preformed and sitting cloaked in a safe. When they where called in by Grym I bridged them in from their safe spots using my widow.

There were a lot of separate and time critical parts of out plan. And they were all carried out to the letter. We held the field for close to a hour . Our only failure was the cap pilots not showing up.

N3 actually helped xdeath shoot a few of the structures back when RA were cascading.

I don't know what the deal is, but xdeath appear to be on decent terms with both the CFC and N3.

Also, this thread just makes me want to cry. Terrible OP post and then the story of an abysmal cascade gg.

Does anyone know what is going to happen to INIT and the few allies they seem to have left, are they blueing someone?

TL:DR An -A- member (PL spy) send BL a screenshot of a PL titan outside a POS with tackle up

BL dogpile onto it with 25ish supers, PL/NC/Everyone else escalate with a huge blob of titans and DD all their capitals off the field within 30 minutes and then spend 3 hours killing supers in 10% Tidi, the end.

Oh and Razor thought it would be a brilliant idea to drop dreads on a PL carrier blob that was en-route (it wasn't, they lost a bunch of dreads)

Just saw the news on TMC - Solar has blued up with Stain Waggon and deployed to Catch close to N3 space. Anticipating an attack N3 took the initiative by anchoring SBU's in GE-8JV (-A-'s staging system) and RFing the station there.

http://themittani.com/news/breaking-news-solar-blues-stainwagon-ge-8-sbud

This war is why I joined NCdot and moved to sov a month ago, glad it's finally happening! What does a scrub like me have to look forward to? Apart from:


Blue balls
Sitting on titans for hours
Being screamed at by autistic FCs
Constant 10% tidi in every fight
Assigning sentry drones being the only PvP skills I'm developing
Flying in fleets so large that my contribution is essentially irrelevant
Relentless shit-talk from both sides in local

You can add to that: buying ships for every fleet doctrine ever conceived then flying nothing but logis.

Let's hope AAA have moved on from their old 'withdraw to Stain' strategy and put up more of a fight this time. With Stain Wagon and Solar together they make a fairly meaty bloc and I'm sure they can draw on some other nearby allies. No doubt Gewns will come party too, because they can't have very much else to do at the moment.

Local spiked over 3000 at some point. (https://adashboard.info/intel/local/view/IiPo0eJv)
Good effort on N3 side to headshot the staging system, good effort on BDSA side to deny that.
Horrible lags. Impressive numbers of T3 fielded (http://eve-dingo.com/formRecive.php?id=y7RZk6S)
Lots of whining about blobbing poor N3.


I'd gladly post a KB report, but I've yet to see one that decently describes the long (in real time) fight.
It either loses numbers or kills.
-DD- lost the majority of a phoon fleet in a bombing run, while the poorly synched to TiDi MicroJumpDrives span their 5-6th cycle before actually working. Reshipped to tengus (took about an hour to dock and switch ships).
-A- seemed to fuck shit up and lose over 50 tengus. PL seem to have failed to make it to the fight due to being raped by SF and BL one jump away.
Goons AFs scared the shit out of me by hanging at 10-15km while i was herding -DD- logis, but never engaged.
Good times.

Well i couldn't resist, so I'll post incompetent KB links, fair disclaimer.
DD KB - http://kb.dd-alliance.org/battle/b9543/ lacks -A- and other allies losses and hence presenting a good efficiency =)

Well it was weekend, and the first fight of many (i hope). The fact that you alarm clocked shows that there was above average effort on both sides to show numbers.
-DD- fleet attendance was a new record for the alliance.
Week days and multiple timers will run numbers down. Also there's the thing about prime time zones ... I just hope we won't reach the stage where we only battle each other's structures.

Wait wait, folks actually think that t3s and bombers are a NEW meta?

Bombers tend to rape or greatly decrease the usefulness of anything subcap but t3 when used competently - t3 have always been the best, but the folks in nullsec have generally been too broke to actually use them in any large scale, not to mention the general incompetentcy and blobbiness of null means a lot more die, further increasing their costs.

Confirming we don't have 6 different T3 fleet comps and we are too poor to fly T3s...

Bigass brawl in Doril today. Tidi only spike when fleets jumped/cynoed in. Local topped out around 1k. Apparently PL dropped a slowcat fleet (120ish carriers) on a RZR Titan that was slightly out of POS shields. Black RUS Legion poured into the system at the hope of a massive cap fest while PL supers logged in. N3 showed up in Maelstroms (NC.), Brutix (Insidious) and Ishtars (Nulli n co) to extract the carrier group. Probably 30-40 dictors died trying to keep the carriers bubbled. Unwilling to escalate with just Dreads Black RUS Legion set about dismantling the N3 subcap fleets. BL bombers managed to kill around 70 Brutix in a single run. Maels and Ishtars died as various safes/planets/etc as they attempted to extract.

All in all a good fight. N3 managed to save the PL carriers while Black RUS Legion managed to kill quite a few subcaps.

BL Super pilots were reimbursed today. However this was followed by the sad news that we have to purchase armor Supers and our dream of Wyvern fleet dies. For this PL will pay with their lives!

Also the late hours contribute some offset to the usual level of autism in fleet -

From what I heard, PL dropped supers on some DD dreads.

Somehow, the PL supers got bubbled, then PL brought in a pile more supers + carriers to rep. Some of the bubbles on the PL supers are friendly (due to not wanting DC badness). Most of the carriers killed are either thanny, chimera, or lolnid, with a sprinkling of archons who were the ghostriders with hictors coming in to tackle the DD dreads.

Stuff *was* tanking fine if they broadcasted/fit right (ex NC no dawt retards notwithstanding).

If by "Got caught" you mean purposely dropped 40+ supers into the cloud of -DD- Dreads with 100+ slowcats as back up then yes we 'Got Caught'.


Our dicks been swinging in the breeze for the past 3 hours but no takers for an actual cap fight so it'll just be us standing against 1k dudes screaming fuck the world.

LordsServant
November 5 2013, 10:37:35 PM
Iirc back when I was in raiden we did the math and you need 400 or so maelstroms to reliably alpha a turd carrier (what folks call slowcats nowadays).

I'd figure with TiDi they should be able to pull enough numbers and sync up alpha to just volley the carriers.

Alternatively, you only need 30 or so arty nags to instapop turd carriers (no more erebus bonus now unless someone actually has an erebus outside of POS ff in that system at present, which wouldn't be smart).

The supercarriers on field are effectively useless given their dps comes from fighters/bombers, which can easily be BBQ'd. I'd assume PL's had them recall all bombers and the supers are just parked and tanking atm.

Only thing stopping a counterdrop of ranged dreads or w/e is the threat of the counter-counterdrop of PL/N3 dreads or supers, which would arguably force their hand and split up their groups of caps.

The supercarriers on field are effectively useless given their dps comes from fighters/bombers, which can easily be BBQ'd. I'd assume PL's had them recall all bombers and the supers are just parked and tanking atm.



Let me tell you about how amazing cycled remote ECM bursting is and how much it pisses off subcap fleets.

I definitely stand corrected about them being useless - valid point. ;)

I think he was pointing out that any large group of maelstroms that comes together with enough alpha to start blapping carriers is gonna be focused with ECM bursts.

Just go down super channel and ecm burst on a set timer, maelstroms are gonna have issues with enough of them getting lock, damage will be spread out quite a bit, giving carriers time in TiDi to lock stuff up.

I don't think the RusRus group has enough pubbies to run a pile of celestis, unlike goons where they have as many(or more) pubbies who show up in a lulzy t1 celestis as can fly the actual doctrine pretend to fly the doctrine with t1 guns n shit.

Massed Celestis can be effective in slowing down enough reps, or damping lock range on outer carriers for enough dps to be applied to break reps on occasion.

The carriers running out of drones isn't likely either as supers/titans can carry piles of spares + I'm sure they've got a pile of backups inside station.

So DBRB is saying 6 NC. titans are gonna die or something.

Bring it goons, we all know you guys will lose any supercap/cap fight horribly due to goons having piss all capital experience and bad jokes of capital FCs. ;)

EDIT: dreads down, moving onDid they only drop ~25 sniper dreads, and did/should they fit them to resist em/therm, as you don't have shield-based DDs?

They dropped just over 30 (34 iirc), Elo's dread doesn't really look sniper fit, more like DD bait but it died anyway, the rest went down in fire, right now Goon Domis are trying to bump one of the busses away from the pack and kill it, we'll see how that works out in the end.

Oh, and a small handful of DD dreads are reportedly undocked but as its nearly 4am moscow time I'm not sure what the RUS are thinking, this fight is over except for the part where we kill shit.

Totally can't be true. I mean the Mittani specifically stated CFC was not going to get involved and would only do small skirmish 3rd party type stuff in this war.

lol like anyone believed for a second he was not lying his ass off.

Anyways, the war is now officially super coalitions fighting it out. About 60,000 vs. 24,000 vs. 10% TiDi.

CFC is forming dreads, they have ~90 or so I hear, but they'll need well north of 200 combined if ANYTHING is gonna happen. Otherwise they're just gonna hand piles of dread kills to N3 and co.

I don't like the distribution of supers all over the place out of rep range. :S (tho supercarriers don't really factor into this on the capital level as much, depends if RusRus are smart and bring firewall or anti (fighter)bomber stuff)

Some bounced (Mr Face-tanking?) Erebus caught reps, top NC one's bounced worse, lit a cyno and had friendly NC supers dropped on it while Tengus & BSs come over to shoot it.

Here is my reply to a shit bird on r/eve, a little update on what happened after the BL dreads jumped in.


BL dropped 34 dreads, NC. jumped titans to two cynos at either side of the carrier blob. BL couldn't break a thanny. All titans had a cyno fit. One got bumped right into the blob. Vince brought in a little bit of the reserve supercarrier group and the erebus tanked. After they warped off and switched to another titan Vince jumped in another portion of the reserver supercap group. They switched to a nyx and we brought in a combined NC./Nulli reserve. PL have no titans on the field and extra supercaps waiting in reserve.

Soo... after the node has finally gone to shit, logged in and got another 3 ,iirc, carriers, RFed the station and killing the hub right now.
Shocking that we didn't find that tackled titan where we left him.
Looks like strategic objectives achieved. on the way home RFed another hub.
I wonder what's the butchers bill in total, but i guess it'll take some time to sort out.
