PL has moved to the north to help the Drone Russians fight there war with the north. A little off topic here but this is how the first battle went http://majesta.eve-kill.net/?a=kill_rel ... id=9341574 (http://majesta.eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=9341574).

I'm sure -A- and co are moving to retake atlas space. and push the people(if there was any) that bought space from PL out of delve/quer.


Update since I had my post ability polled. ROL and nulli have started taking all the sov they can in delve. To be fair i dont think they will last long when someone comes wanting to conquer that space.

Well, tbh, they should be, delve is some of the best space in game. especially if the new anom changes go through.

Managed to get a couple of good fights last night.

We heard there was a structure coming out of reinforce somewhere in delve last night. Assembled a small hellcat fleet. After spending almost 2 hours trying to find the fleet we managed to engage in 0-IOAI.
Enemy fleet was ~10 dreads, ~5 carriers, and ~30 subcaps

http://killboard.nullisecunda.com/?a=kill_related&kll_id=22962

We were a little light on hics and dics and they managed to get most of thier capitals out, we did manage to keep an arcon two revs and a moroes in bubbles or pointed but they self destructed before we could kill them, one of the moroes in less than half armor :( .

favorite km of the night

http://killboard.nullisecunda.com/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=22959

nice helping our 2 scorps with jams on thier own logi chain.

After this we quickly moved to help huns killing an onlining TCU in 5-6QW

There was a fleet of carriers, bs and bc on guard but they docked up when we entered system.
We burnt down the TCU and when it was almost dead thier FC decided that perhaps he could engage us after all and warped his fleet into our stop bubble , and have his carriers rain down on us with fighters which we were only to happy to pop for him. We could have forced more of a fight but by this time it was late, we had been out for about 4 hours so off home we went.

http://killboard.nullisecunda.com/?a=kill_related&kll_id=22980

Was a fun fleet. It was nice to move around delve without having the PL super cap fleet drop on you.
Hopefully we can get some more of these good fights on late US TZ

station in 5BTM-K coming out of its final timer today

So we took the opertunity to get a fight.

The server had an emergency shut down just as we were be going to form, and we were looking a bit light on numbers , but eventually people started to trickle back on.

Test were had an alpha fleet with carriers and supers in system

We bridged our ahac fleet into sys , and then managed to get a nice warp in on thier fleet

Thier scimis died really fast.
Our dictors did a great job on keep bubbles on thier fleet so we managed to work our way though a lot of thier ships.
About halfway though the fight carriers and supers warped on grid at range , they did manage to work thier way through a lot of our tackle but really didnt have much influence of the fight. We just stayed on their sub cap fleet and the caps warp off once they had ninjad a few kill mails

http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=9569781

Much better out come for us than our last fight. where we made a few mistakes which really cost us a lot of ships and a good number of our fleet suffered perma jamming.

Edit added some fraps footage

G0dfathers have been in NPC fountain from the IT pet days and I believe HUN Reloaded ended up moving from Sov space to NPC space and bluing them.

Im not sure if i understood you correctly, but "G0dfathers" are nowhere near IT pets. Actually quite the opposite :ohnoes: they dont "like" it afaik.

They were blue to test and co (AFAIK !!!! Im not really active recently) but they reseted them / got reseted so they started pwning test noobs and pets in the region.

He was saying that G0dfathers have lived in NPC fountain since PL/SoT were removed from Fountain. They were hostile with IT pets, and sometimes ran with GK inc. (http://evemaps.dotlan.net/corp/GK_inc.) and V.L.A.S.T. (http://evemaps.dotlan.net/corp/V.L.A.S.T.) guys to engage in guerrilla warfare against the IT pets. Most notably harassing BLAST (http://evemaps.dotlan.net/alliance/Black_Star_Alliance/corporations) in the Minotaur constellation (http://evemaps.dotlan.net/map/Fountain/Minotaur). So all in all, they are pretty much doing the same thing now, that they did then. Just against different residents.

I have a soft spot for them having enjoyed being in a similar position, after seeing them when I was in Fountain for an NC(dot) campaign vs. BLADE etc. I wasn't surprised they were still there. Also the V.L.A.S.T. guys are classy, one of them looted and returned my storyline cargo after a daddy insta'd my magnate :D.

Not much of a battle report, but an epic bombing run. NOL station was coming out of reinforce and when our black ops fleet ended up with 50 people we decided to switch to bombers and sniper hacs and see what we can do. We set up off the station with the hacs and Test get a warp in of our sniper hacs. Unfortunately I'm the only dictor in the fleet and cloaked next to the station so we don't catch the entire Test fleet. However bombs are launched pretty much to perfection, and we catch most of the fleet.

There was a little bit of skirmishing afterwards, we said GF and left for home.

They have more than doubled their numbers the last couple of weeks so might want the space for themselves.

There's quite some Dramalama about that on eveger.de (VE being mostly/exclusively? German).

Apparently they thought that since they're bigger they could take the space for themselves and had some delusions about getting help (or at least non-intervention) from Nulli and/or other residents in the area.

Turns out they were terribly wrong and were consequently curbstomped about it.

We've beein in the area [Delve] for just over a week now, a quick update on the main people in the area and what sort of characteristics they use.

HUNs - Hun reloaded,
These guys obv bear up in their own constellations, but if theyre not doing this they generally float around in the pipe between FWST or 319 in a couple of really fail fit no-tank tempests, or buffer bait cyno BCs which are backed up by either a couple of archons or a titan bridge, apart from these two tactics they roam very little.

Goons - Goonswarm Federation
hold up around PR- covert camping the gates in the system. They usually roll with either nano stuff if they move around or arazu's/rapiers which are backed up by carriers when hotdropping. They also have a couple of supers in the area, a nyx which is always online in pr- and an aeon which isn't online very much.

404 - Not Found.
Generally base from z3v / kfie. Roam with standard 30+ gangs of mish-mash stuff. They once cov cyno'd a panther in on us when they had a 'normal' gang on the gate waiting to jump in. Not very much in the way of gang co-ordination, but can bring some fights on occasion.

VCRUZ - Vera Cruz Alliance
From period basis, usually found in nano gangs/ frig gangs with a buzzard or sader as scout. They did bring a BS gang the other day into PR- which were mainly t1 fit with t1 sentries. Couldn't figure out what they were hitting though - It looked like a POS bashing gang, but the only moons in the system worth taking were clear of hostiles.

ROL/ Nulli Secunda
ROL basically just rat.
Nulli secunda usually form up pretty quick if you venture into their constellation around c3n but otherwise don't really do a whole lot either.

In recent news:
Vanguard Imperium + a few friends just got reset by Atlas.

Will hopefully liven PVP up in Querious from just being Stain/Russians/Noir. roaming about, as Vanguard own a few stations.

Got no idea why the reset happened except there is now a free Shmak Datash campaign against these guys, maybe someone in the know can expand further.

Didn't see one for Fountain unless it's one of the DRF hurf blurf -A- somebody whatever threads that I don't follow because lolblobwafarez.

So yeah. Last Friday night we went and blew shit up. Most of it was in Fountain. So I'm posting this. And Grarr will probably come onto our IRC and scream at me and rage about how I did it wrong, but ? Grarr so it's all good.

CTA edited and cross-posted from the Rote boards. Someone else wrote it, mine aren't that cool and don't involve mushroom stamp pictures.



[center:2dat15hg]http://298th.com/cassius/images/mushroomstamp.jpg[/center:2dat15hg]

Formup started 15 mins early, and largely I was able to get the fleetcomp I wanted, no real issues. We peaked at 34 in fleet, which is largely indicated by this killmail (http://rotekapelle.com/killboard/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=53277) Though our total guardian count was 5, so that indicates 1 or 2 extras. Other than the guardians, we had a HIC, DIC, scout + a few frig backups, and the normal bevy of ahac's and commandships (plus an eos with links which I still don't know what to think about).


The Plan

The plan was 2 part: 1. Go to 6-CZ where GROONs had indicated that there would be fights. Then when we found no fights, 2. Head to Fountain where Dreddit would blob us. In this respect, everything went exactly according to plan.

I need to take a second to talk about point 2. Dreddit like to fight. If you give them the chance to form up, they generally will. Sometimes they bring drunken frigates, sometimes they bring drakefleet, but they WILL bring something. You really can't bitch about the blobbing- when we go visit them, we know EXACTLY what we are signing up for.

Sure, we could go all nano, but IMO, fuck it- Go balls deep. Go get goodfights~ out of them if you can manage it. Don't whine about the numbers, we go to fountain looking for the blob.

Not that I heard anyone bitching about anything, but it's worth reiterating a bit.


Six Charlie Leg

Nothing too much to report here, You can see prox losing a dram to a cane, as well as us clearing out some GROON stuff.

http://rotekapelle.com/killboard/?a=kill_related&kll_id=53266
http://rotekapelle.com/killboard/?a=kill_related&adjacent&kll_id=53263

Flying Safely stayed well within their pos shields, as did the camping failures who live in F67E, who I can't remember now. Worth noting that both systems had 30ish populations before we got there, so there are bodies in space- just not bodies we can fight on a friday night. I GUESS, a lesson could be we should titan bridge them, but I prefer to not burn those plays. GROON _tries_ to fight us, so I'm not a fan of bridging them.

Regardless, pretty uneventful stuff.


The Fountain Stomp

We went to Fountain walking heavy, and letting them get eyes on our fleet whenever possible, so that we could get a fight. I was HOPING that they would have something up and about by the time we got to APM, as hiking down the 6VT pocket wasn't really what I WANTED to do, but v0v, you go where the ships are. By the time I got word from intel channels that they were forming up to fight us, we were already chilling next door to 6VT, so the next step was sitting back on heels, and getting ready. The one thing I did RIGHT here, was get us to a safe so we could bio ahead of time. THAT decision was the right one.

Anyways, I had mango in 6V, fleet in B170, and Prox asked to go hunt ratters deeper in the pocket. We figured them at about 40ish at this point, and forming, so we knew our fight would be soon. Furthermore, F-A were getting a fleet together, though I didn't have specifics. Prox calls a point on a Maelstrom in 7BX, so I order fleet to advance. As we land on the 7BX gate, there are a number of ships there already, so I order bubble up... these targets jump through, prox drops point on the Maelstrom as I order fleet into 7BX to gank, however their fleet has landed @60ish- things start OK, and I call a drake that is on gate at zero with us, but as it's increasingly obvious that the majority of their assets are at range, I order deagress and orbit. We lose one Deimos here (http://rotekapelle.com/killboard/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=53275), who looks like he didn't get reps, but I wasn't prepared to fight them starting at long range, so we cross-jump reapproach, but they aren't interested in the fight and bail out through AV-V. Meanwhile, we hold, and kill some scrubs coming into us.

I'm a little miffed at not getting the fight I wanted here, but mango lands a tackle on a carrier in AV-V, and so we are happy again (http://www.rotekapelle.com/killboard/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=53277). We leave the pod up for a bit, hoping their fleet comes to save him, but it's not to be, so we pop that and head back into 7BX. There's a lot of cat/mouse going on as people are jockeying for field position, which ends with their fleet landing on our fleet on the 6VDT gate. I order jump through/reapproach and [sean connery]the game is afoot![/sean connery].

Here is the best link I could find for the first fight: http://rotekapelle.com/killboard/?a=kill_related&kll_id=53286

Not much to say about it... giant ass fight, fight started out OK, but I had a HELL of a time with target calling due to range issues. I asked bacc to take over for a bit when every fucking ship which shown at 20 to me was showing at 60 to the world. Overall, our reps were largely holding against their DPS EXCEPT their disproportionate ewar was playing hell with our chains. I counted 6 blackbirds and a falcon. Orders were given to Zealots to sort by type and axe their ewar, but we really just didn't have the numbers to deal with this, IMO.

We lost a guardian, and I didn't like how they had pulled to range (and I was all fucked up), so I ordered deaggress/drones-in/orbit, and started yelling at Nem who was about 40k off gate (finally got brackets working again, thank you very much CCP).

GF's were traded, and we bailed out.


This begins cleanup

So, after the big fight, we were basically left with: "you are trapped in a pocket guarded by jerks, what do you do?".

Nestor crashes again, I have fleet moving towards the back part of the loop. I crash. Shit's fucked up. We have a FA fleet trying to trap up in the back door, and Dreddit trying to sandwhich. Bacc has fleet, and since his balls are bigger than his head, he decides to take a swing at the FA fleet.

That goes like this:
http://rotekapelle.com/killboard/?a=kill_related&kll_id=53324

But you have to count Usagi's loss on the other side of the gate as Dreddit finally gets there.
http://rotekapelle.com/killboard/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=53321

Nestor logs back in landing in the middle of a hostile fleet and dies. Leboe is alt-fucking-tabbed, and dies like an xbox ([heart]). Fleet logoffski's, chills heels for 45 mins, then logs in, comes home, kills a legion on the way back.

Return fleet size was 22ish, including 4 guardians, scout, dictor, and hacs. so we were well formed on the homebound journey.


Postop Analysis

Overall, I'm slightly disappointed with myself, slightly dissappointed with CCP (this is the worst patch since the one which disco'ed you when you jumped through a gate), and overall mostly pleased with the engagement. While I'm sorry if I got your ship blown up, I'm not sorry enough to stop doing it, so v0v.



The related "adjacent" that I think covers most of the running bits of that huge engagement: http://www.rotekapelle.com/killboard/?a ... l_id=53325 (http://www.rotekapelle.com/killboard/?a=kill_related&adjacent&kll_id=53325)

Veto lost 4(?) ships, a Claymore, Muninn, Zealot, and not sure on the other. So those obviously don't show on our side for losses. I don't think Veto guys got any kills that Rote aren't on, but I haven't double checked, so that may or may not be accurate.

Oh and one other comment, I love the TEST guys. Literally seconds after the carrier died I get convoed by a TEST guy begging me for the killmail so he can smack the carrier pilot on Jabber for losing a ratting carrier when there had been an enemy fleet showing up in intel channels for 45 minutes. +1 to that guy. :)

Agreed on TEST. I like those guys because they will always bring a fight. Friday nights it's hard for us to find a group to fight in Syndicate in the US TZ because that's when we tend to get blobby. Inevitably we run out to Fountain because we know TEST will deal with us.

It was a good fight.

My only gripe was the egress. TEST, we are your sweethearts. We come 20 or 30 jumps to visit you, we bring pie. We do not decline the 100+ vs 35 fight you offer. We gyrate upon each other until mutual satisfaction is achieved and gf's are exchanged in local. At that point give us a big smooch and kick us out the door so we can get home before curfew. Camping us in with FA until we have to loggoffski makes it hard to come back for the next booty call when we know our gang is going to have to log in space.

a couple solo roams up to fountain lately have made me a test fan as well. i got consistent 2v1s and 1v1s from those that were around. not the waiting for massive form up to come get that solo cane you get most places (although they certainly wont hold back when they have the numbers). and for the most part, friendly. still, not enough activity to justify the trip imho.

Aw I miss brick squad on occasions like this! I see you guys have claimed sov in 1-SMEB too! Are you making a push into delve or is it just another HED-GP? I'm glad you finally gave the finger to the NC. The promises of sov and techmoons whispered into brick leadership ears is what ruined the alliance.

I think Brick will make an excellent addition to pvp in the region, and find some fights to match them evenly. I was banging on at leadership to move there when it was clear gem was lost.

Ok So last night I log on after a few hours on the test server and go for a quick roam in my vaga, after killing a dumb pilot on a gate in a shitty rifter, the call comes out in intel for some more tackle on a carrier running a sanctum two jumps from me :D

I make the quick trip while a b/o gang bridge a gang of Stealth bombers onto the carrier who's at 98% shield when I land, a few curse's and his shields start dropping quick, a brave cane and Thrasher pilot decide to warp in to save there ratting buddy, but die in a fire.

Looks like Test are giving up on the ratting carriers now, being just one JB sys away from 6V I was amazed noone came to save the Chimera, we were pinging him for ages..

Perhaps no one liked him? Or he was told on an intel channel to GTFO and didn't? Or he didn't tell anyone because he wasn't in the intel channels and you killed his alts? There are a million and one reasons to let a ratting carrier die in a fire.

-A- has now moved into the area, bnasing out of FWST and using G-T as their bearing system, larges bubbles on all the gates etc. From the looks of it theyre staging supers there too and running some Black Ops gangs around the area.
[Although the J / Bridge range is terrible from FWST].

Needless to say, what with -A- / Brick and MM etc moving in, the area has become far too blobby for us and we'll be vacating the area. I'm sure someone else will pick up where things will be left oce the action starts happening..

I'm predicting MM / Brick to take sov in the area from HUN/CHAOS and -A- to try for TEST in fountain. We will see, i'm most likely wrong.

Well last night there were a few stations in north querious coming out of RF, bulk of forces were centred around L-6BE1.

Looked like MM were maybe going to play for hitting the station out of RF and taking it however, they just had a hac gang or two roaming about and some bombers harassing the station capturers.

Not quite sure what's going on, apparently RAZOR and others were taking out TCU's yesterday morning.

Nice write up from the Rote board.

[quote="Nestor Laurenitis":2iu880wr]Agreed on TEST. I like those guys because they will always bring a fight. Friday nights it's hard for us to find a group to fight in Syndicate in the US TZ because that's when we tend to get blobby. Inevitably we run out to Fountain because we know TEST will deal with us.

They must be getting lazier, usually they send out a bait Drake and bridge to you.

Looks like Test are giving up on the ratting carriers now, being just one JB sys away from 6V I was amazed noone came to save the Chimera, we were pinging him for ages..

Perhaps no one liked him? Or he was told on an intel channel to GTFO and didn't? Or he didn't tell anyone because he wasn't in the intel channels and you killed his alts? There are a million and one reasons to let a ratting carrier die in a fire.[/quote:2iu880wr]

He never called for help. In fact someone created a thread about the fact that he didn't and this ended with Dreddit losing one of its most veteran members over the fact that the thread created was called "Another Dumb Nigger Lost a Chimera".

Was good fight. We kited the shit outta them (tackle excepted which mostly died, gloriously). They had us outnumbered by about 3:2, we crossed jumped them a couple of times finally trapping them on the other side of "home". Bubbled their outgate for several minutes until they finally decided to trickle in and fight. I have to say, Delve is lol so far. Brackets on, effects on, no lag. Good times.

Thanks for cleaning up the thread again.

Here's a write up of what happened.

Godfathers pos was coming out of reinforced in 75, we formed up in a 70 Man Armor Bs fleet with logistics and tackle do defend it, We landed in the Pos with 5 mins left until it came out of reinforced and waited with anticipation until the cyno came, In jumped about 10 Carriers, 5 or 6 dreads, with a couple of supers. Word came that the support fleet sat on the titan ready to bridge was a mixed support fleet consisting of Alpha Maelstroms, drakes and tackle with 6 or 7 logistics.

Soon as the caps landed on the Pos we warped to a off grid spot, ready to warp on top of the capitals, but as soon as we landed and aligned back to the capitals half our fleet dropped connection and couldn't log back in.

Hostile capitals started dropping also, so they all started emergency warping, That is apart from the few that didn't disconnect, so we warped back to the pos and burned out and tackled what was left.

We started shooting a Moros, and at half armor it jumped out, it would seem all our tackle disconnected also, thankfully a few were able to relog back in, So we switched targets to a now tackled Revelation, then Moros, and the remaining Carriers, An Aeon, the last remaining super left on the field hit his ecm burst and combined with the carriers managed to Nuet our tackle off and jumped out, with 3 carriers left the pilots logged off or disconnected (who can tell) and died promptly.

All in all, a bit of a sad affair really, we killed some caps but with half our fleet having connection problems, and the fact they didn't get to bring the support fleet meant, what could of been a good fight turned into a fuck CCP moment.

Pos was repped but reinforced again, so let's hope round 3 is much better for everyone.

Speaking for querious:

Razor/MM roaming about in HAC/BC gangs frequently. They seem to be more active in space north of K7D (http://evemaps.dotlan.net/map/Querious/K7D-II). Init. seem to have taken an interest around the area too, albeit on a lower scale and nearer to catch.

That was on some moon goo pos. close to 500 in local when the fight started as hostiles bridged onto their POS. MM Immediately bombed the shit out of them and we successfully closed range (about 90aHacs) and after several minutes of frankly raping, they ran into the POS.

Calls for bubbles on the POS, etc. Didn't get it done in time and we followed them out of KF into Z3 where the fight was more even (died at that point and went afk, is all i know).

Yesterday there was more goodtimes as our sov in ZA9 was being challenged. RAWR again in about 30 bombers, us in about 40 or so LR Shield BCs. We killed maybe 60% of their tackle when hostile fleet jumped in and I think this hurt badly over the course of the next nearly 2 hours.

http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=10016411

Basically we kept getting warpins, kiting and killing as long as we could, then warped out. Rinse Repeat. For 2 hours. RAWR bombers reshipped at least once and I'm glad they did as we needed them (without them FC was gonna call us off). Hostiles eventually bailed after a 30 man AAA muninn gang came up and got mauled by bombers (backup sniper gang to counter our sniping). We then killed the SBU and repped the iHub.

Test and friends (FA, Convicted, Chaos Theory, some AAA) were out in force on Saturday for NOL. They had like 9285762908567 dudes.

We roamed all over from 1-SMEB, to OI, to KFIE in frigs killing stuff. I can't find a coherent killboard battle report. We killed about half a dozen scorps, a claymore, bunch of BCs, a logi, some small stuff. It was great fun dragging massive fleets around behind us and then chasing them back to catch stragglers, etc. I'm sure most of the frig fleet died at least once but hey, T1 frigs who cares right?

Nulli Secunda, Chaos Theory + friends offed a Brick sbu in M5- tonight shortly before putting the ihub in 1-smeb into second reinforced. On the way home, we heard Black legion had a Brick Aeon tackled in Sakht, the lowsec system adjacent to 1-SMEB. We immediately turned around and started burning in that direction. He logged as our tackle jumped in but the combined BL and Nulli+Chaos fleets quickly finished him off. http://www.black-legion.org/killboard/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=26838&nolimit

Also, Chaos+Huns killed another Brick sbu in R5- earlier in the day as it was finishing onlining. The bricks seem to be having a slightly rough go of it today, perhaps tomorrow will be better?

Last night mm, borg, and bricks put NOL into another RF timer, killed a TEST POS in low-sec which doesn't seem to have generated an actual tower mail. I left fleet to finish my drink and get to bed.

http://www.brick-squad.net/killboard/?a=kill_related&kll_id=117036

The kb's are a mess due to bombing fratricide and a terribly mistimed bubble on nulli/chaos part.

We originally formed up in geddons to finish off the ihub in 1-smeb. Before we did that we hopped over to NOL to take out a Brick POS that had just gone up, http://killboard.nullisecunda.com/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=32013. That mail accurately represents the entire fleet I believe. After the tower we went to 1-smeb and warped to the ihub. Just after we landed and as we aligned/spread out, several MM bombers decloaked and launched bombs. At that point, a chaos devoter pilot put his bubble up thinking he had a script in. And so he basically killed several of his own battleships. And by several I mean a ton, MM had a very very lucky run. I couldn't find all of the kills on one battle report though, but going by the kills section of the MM kb they got 30ish battleships and 5-10 support in that one run.

Rather pissed at this point, the fleet bounces to avoid more bombs temporarily. Some idiot warps to the TCU which is obviously at a POS and quickly gets tackled. This idiot is in a nicely pimped tackle proteus so our FC decides to save him. Due to some fail piloting and not listening to the FC, a couple more BS and several tackle die here before the proteus is extricated.

Back to the ihub, the fleet gets properly unbunched and begins slowly chewing it down. Also at the ihub are Atlas in some shield tempests+support to help kill the ihub as well as whatever bombers they can. Ihub dies, but the fleet has been whittled down significantly through attrition. FC says time to go home, lots of us are like wut? The TCU is still up...

The fleet heads back home anyway :psyduck:

I think as we were aligning out, Black Legion landed in mewnins and may have fought Atlas for a while, not sure what happened there since we were leaving.

Brick onlined a new Ihub later I think, so we get to do it all over again \o/

Anyhow, props to MM and Brick for some nice bombing runs and capitalizing on our mistakes.

our kb: http://www.chaostheoryalliance.com/?a=kill_related&kll_id=14367

Rather a mess due to the bubble, but hey, he singlehandedly saved our efficiency!

I'll type up another BR for the fight that just happened in M5 with Brick, Nulli, Chaos, MM, Razor, and Black Legion.

DocBlood
July 8 2011, 05:39:58 AM
Alright, on to Thursday night (US TZ).

Killboard: http://killboard.nullisecunda.com/?a=kill_related&kll_id=32289 (not finished syncing yet, but Nulli's seems most accurate)

There's a lot of things I'm not too sure about leading up to the fight as I'm not privy to coalition leadership comms. Perhaps someone from Brick or Black Legion could fill in the gaps?

Nulli puts a call out for another Geddon fleet to go kill something quickly. We (Chaos Theory, Vera Cruz, some others?) get about 125 in fleet and ready to go in our various home systems in Geddons, a few Abaddons, and various armor support.

We sit waiting on the titan for about 30 minutes, whatever we had been originally formed for had turned out to be a bust so we had a massive case of blue balls. We docked back up for a 10 minute break while the FC tried to figure something else out. He suddenly begins yelling on comms to get our asses back on the titan so we dutifully undock and head back out. I think we lost about 20 from fleet during the break so we were down to After about 2 minutes, bridge goes up and we land in M5 near a Brick POS. I have no idea what they were doing (I seriously just don't know and wasn't paying attention) but Brick has several carriers and dreads and a Nyx out about 200km off the pos. As we load system, FC is yelling to get bubbles on the Nyx and bump him out of alignment but he is just outside hic scripted point range and about 5km outside of the nearest bubble and warps out to the pos along with maybe one or two carriers/dreads.

I should mention that Black Legion is on also on the field in Tempests+scimis and we get strict orders to ignore them and kill the caps. They likewise ignore us and focus on Brick/MM. We quickly nuke a Brick chimera and then switch the Brick support/BS on the field. After they go down we go back to caps, a thanny, phoenix, and rev all die just before a MM baddon fleet lands right in our bubbles. Our/BL's dictors get some excellent bubbles on them and we quickly melt most of their baddons even with Brick archon and guardian support.

Back to the caps again and we begin easily melting them even as a Razor pulsepoc gang lands on grid. We finish the caps off and begin aligning to get a warpin on the apocs, we get the order to warp and about 20 of the fleet make it before an amazingly timed bubble from Razor goes up in between us and them, allowing them to warp out with minor losses.

Black Legion warped off and jumped out leaving Chaot/Nulli holding the field and all the loot. Was an awesome fight, a bit let down we missed the Nyx, but still a ton of fun. Be seeing you guys again soon I imagine.

GFGF


edit: welp I'm pretty retarded, apparently we had cap support of our own, no idea how many, at least one archon as seen here:

fuck you for killing my thanny in M5 m8 :P (been replaced btw)

Friday was kinda meh imo. I missed the MO- fight as I was eating steak, shrimp, bresola, and having espresso with after dinner liqueur. Got back in time for the NOL timer. Before leaving sakht hostiles had 200+ in system already. We had about 35 LR/Shield BC and leeroy'd in. Went off to a safe POS and started locating hostiles. Eventually warped back to the HM gate and sniped some tackle, warped out. Got rape caged in our small "safe" POS as Brack Region landed off the hostile gang. They fought for a bit but, from what I saw, it looked like they were just to outnumbered to have a good fight. They warped off.

Meanwhile, in the safe POS, with NOL defenders distracted by BL we inched out of the shield and killed one of the dictors caging us.

BL left field, rest left field, leaving an apparently AFK cane to diaf. Probed down another cane and killed it. Found a handful of ships later on and warped in on them...FC fucked up and warped us off before we could kill anything. But hey, he's 13 and was doing a great job \0/

I think MM was doing some bombing but can't confirm. Peaked at abouot 435 in local and we decided that our work was done in NOL (or maybe the FCs parents said he had to go to bed, not sure which) and we left.

No great fights, no cap welps, I'll take it.

Local's at about 310 as we kill the sbu's, peaked at 525ish. Nulli+Chaos+Vera Cruz, etc all formed up at about 23:30, went after some BORG supers over in Gent's space, they got back to pos though :facepalm:. Killed some bombers, an archon, and a bit of brick support then headed to NOL for the station timer.

Took a break for a bit then chased Brick around system a bit, I think razor had a small gang pass through as well. Brick ended up in their small pos, we bubbled them in and just waited to keep them from killing sbu's I think? Station came out, supers hopped in and finished it off, Nulli took the station. We started killing sbu's and then suddenly 120/210 in fleet had eve crash simultaneously :tinfoil:

Nothing happened though so we reformed and continued on our merry way to killing the sub's and eventually the TCU.

MM was bombing us the whole time with some decent hits, nothing noteworthy that I'm aware of though. We just finished off the MM TCU with 150 in fleet and are heading back home. See ya next time Brick and friends.

Edit: so our fc just revealed that the reason we formed up so early was that they thought the station timer was at 00:45 when it was actually at 2:45, made for a long freaking night.

GFs to you guys the last few days, I just wish we could have more "real" fights and less bombers but they're effective and I certainly can't fault anyone for using them. I'm tired as hell but I'll try to find some decent battle report on the killboards tomorrow.

Some decent action today in the Thunderdome. Early in the day (for US TZ) we heard a call for triage archons from Nulli and got a bit worried a super had gotten tackled so we formed up as quickly as possible to bridge in. Fortunately it wasn't for a super, but we were never called for as the real engagement had already gone down. We originally heard that Nulli had gotten truly welped by MM, Brick, and BORG, but looking at the kb now shows that despite a significant isk ratio loss, the two sides lost similar amounts of BS. Nulli had called in carriers to attempt to even the odds a bit since they were outnumbered 2:1. Unfortunately, it didn't really work out for them.

HUN came in shortly after the battle, but from what I heard on comms, "the refugee coalition" wouldn't engage their reinforced numbers.

The killboard shows 31 MM on the Nulli side, subtract those and it's straight 2:1. Props to nulli for taking down as much as they did and to the refugees for taking advantage of the situation.

Later (23:00), Chaos, Nulli, Vera Cruz, etc. formed up in our usual geddons to rep/defend the ihub in M5. (Someone on kugu said we are the caassarole coaltion? really needs a better name). We met up in M5 and killed one of the SBU's then took a break in the TCU POS briefly before jumping in carriers to begin repping the ihub. MM bridged in Baddons (Brick came in in sniper canes conventionally I think?) on top of our carriers so we warped to the IHUB and dispatched most of them rather quickly. They also jumped in at least 3 triage carriers but that didn't seem to help much.

(http://www.chaostheoryalliance.com/?a=kill_related&kll_id=14675)
Almost an exact reversal of the earlier battle. We were surprised they brought that fleet in considering the carrier support we had (9 according to the kb, perhaps 1 or 2 more that didn't make it on kills) as well as our numbers. The carriers saved my butt, caught their reps at 33% structure :fuckyeah:


http://www.chaostheoryalliance.com/?a=kill_related&kll_id=14675
(http://www.chaostheoryalliance.com/?a=kill_related&kll_id=14675)
MM left and Brick continued with some harrassing bombs and random bubbling of the carriers as well as poking at us in our safe pos, but nothing really noteworthy happened after that fight (if anything at all).

Anyhow, GFs today, always makes me happy to see some more conventional fights (i.e. not all bombers heh).

P.S I get my motherboard for my new PC tomorrow, will try to fraps stuff now that I won't be dualboxing on a 3 year old laptop :psyduck: Also welcoming any suggestions/criticisms on my rather terrible and hastily thrown together BR's.

We formed long range battlecruisers for M5-. starting with 35 or so our numbers grew to around 55 as people joined and caught up or joined in M5- itself. We hung out in 1-S for a bit having word of a TEST gang in NOL and moving out. They apparently had something else to do and we never saw them. We did catch a few unlucky pilots while awaiting tho: http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=10130161

Eventually we jumped M5- and got set up to make runs at the hostile fleet that was going about its business there. Hostiles had a lot of guardians (10 maybe?) plus the triaged carriers and we can't alpha a BS at long range so it was a hard road to actually kill shit. We did pick off a zealot, hurricane, 2 dictors, 1 or 2 ceptors and lost one of our own hurricanes. For some reason the BR is a jumble: http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=10130210

Hostiles were trying hard to catch us on a snipe run but never quite pulled it off. Was a decent way to end the weekend.

Hrm, lots of stuff been going on the last week, but no posting :(
I'll just summarize with as much info as I can remember.

1. CHAOT lost M5 to Brick because of a fuckup with paying attention to towers being reinforced :facepalm: Nulli's staging pos in 1DH was reffed the other day and no one noticed until 10 minutes before it came out, we scrambled to save, carriers jumped in and stablized it at 60% structure. Fleet stayed to guard carriers thus missing the M5 timer. Also, MM got the pos pw (it was a primary color, ffs someone fire the guy that picked that) and bumped out a few geddons with a Mach and a 100mn Stabber :facepalm: Just a rather :psyduck: kind of night I guess.

2. Nulli took NOL now that TEST is pulling out of Delve.

3. Apparently Brick forgot to set their wallet to autopay so the TCU they anchored in HM didn't online. HUNS took system yesterday with assistance of Nulli, Chaos and Vera Cruz (and I think FAIL too). That fleet had a lot of translating going on heh.

4. Perhaps the most significant development was that of GENTs leaving Delve and heading north to support their spacebros in the clusterfuck coalition. This rather upset Convicted and there was a bit (actually a lot) of public drama in the Delve thread on kugu. (I'd suggest checking that thread if you're really interested on the goings on in Delve, lots of alliance leaders posting there with frequent updates including CHAOT, Convicted, Black Legion, and GENTs). GENTs had originally offered the space to CHAOT, but leadership felt we didn't have the numbers to defend the area and coalition leadership agreed. Eventually a deal was worked out with BORG for them to take the space provided they reset the refugee coalition.

5. There have been lots of smaller fights with no real tactical or strategic advantage gained or only temporarily gained.

All in all it's been fun since I became active again and moved down here. I really enjoy the constant small scale conflicts across the region instead of the multi-region map wiping that PL/Raiden/WN/etc is currently doing. (Not that that's bad, just not my cup of tea). The lack of supercap use (barring structure grinding because ffs it takes forever to kill shit with 80 geddons) is extremely nice. How long it will last is anyone's guess. Mine is until Goons get evicted from Deklein or PL gets bored/their current contract ends and they log in the supers they left down here.

Looking forward to seeing more reports from other points of view that fill in for my lack of knowledge of current politics and gaps in activity.

Was just sorting what I knew to post something about the weekend (I wasn't online Sat so I dunno 'bout that).

I got on late-ish Sunday got in fleet/comms only to hear the end of this battle in RCI http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=10177483 I'm pretty sure (though never spoke to anyone about it) that some dudes didn't not load grid when they jumped in. But apparently the archons were jumped in after this grid load failure which is a bit :psyduck: Again there is a video of this fight including chib telling alpha (our 13yr old FC) to shutup.

You tube of RCI battle, brick pers:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MqZg6VC0q6s

Later that evening we returned to HM- to re-capture the station, again, again. Shot the station, took it, and had a wee fight: http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=10180995. We were sniping again and are beginning to employ some new things...got a lot of their tackle down then some of the main body as a very large fleet bridged in, including supers. Numbers (I think) around 300 including -A- who we really haven't seen that much of yet. I guess they tackled something big, slightly off a POS in 1DH and they all rage jumped over. We also headed that way and the emergency evaporated as everyone got safe. This RAWR lost a dread. Fleet took a break for ppl to repair and reship and I went to bed.

I see we have sov in HM- again...good to get any potential sov bill welps out of the way now I think.

And yes, there have been many small engagements of little or no consequence on the grand scale. However, reviewing my own killboard I see more and more structures and somewhat fewer ships as the trend. Clearly the nature of fights has changed somewhat.

Yeah most of the fleet blackscreened on jump in to that fight. I jumped in about 45 seconds after the BS and loaded grid almost immediately to about 30 bombs flying at me in my ceptor v0v

I just held my jump cloak as long as I could and managed to warp off with little damage. From the sound of it, most people loaded grid but were already dead. What logi we had left couldn't get reps to cycle either. I think our fc loaded grid quick enough that he thought we had a chance with the carriers on field, obviously not heh. He owned up to his getting us welped afterward and apologized for the decision.

I didn't head back to hm later and didn't check kb's this morning (blocked at work) so apparently I spoke a bit too soon about supercaps v0v

I agree about a shift in the nature of the fighting, not sure what it means but I can kind of feel it too.

Compared to 98% of FCs in EVE alpha is pro. Alpha "welped" a T1 cruiser gang a few weeks ago, if you can call losing a T1 cruiser gang anything but expected.

Ok, some content from Mercilessdot for Delve. Last week the aussie contingent of merciless kicked off their Delve road trip. We've been up north for a long time now, and after the NC fell, the targets in AU tz have been scarce. With fellow aussies Convicted in Delve, and Brick/MM having decent AU timezone presence, it seemed like a good place to visit

So far we've been having a blast. Nice fights from small gang up to 30-40 man fleet stuff. Here's a selection of some stuff we've managed to get up to this week:

http://merciless-alliance.com/killboard/?a=kill_related&kll_id=26172
Slightly over ambitious on our part but was still fun to have to a crack. Was a good way to blow out the cobwebs after the quietness of the last 2 months up north for us

http://merciless-alliance.com/killboard/?a=kill_related&kll_id=26246
BR missing rest of their fleet as we didnt take losses but was roughly 20 vs 15. We had the stronger fleet comp but the brick boys decided to have a crack at picking some of us off. Much respect o7

http://merciless-alliance.com/killboard/?a=kill_related&kll_id=26574
Our second encounter with Morsus for the roadtrip but this time numbers aren't stupidly skewed in their favour. Think there might be a few more of them missing from related kills as they only killed our dictor, but nonetheless was fairly even. We pop 4-5 ships and MM realise its time to exit gracefully. GF lads

http://merciless-alliance.com/killboard/?a=kill_related&kll_id=26610
Later in the night is on like donkey kong again with the brick boys. Win or lose these guys are not shy and keep bringing it

http://merciless-alliance.com/killboard/?a=kill_related&kll_id=26686
Bit of a random running battle over around 20 minutes on aussie saturday arvo. Lots of back and forth gank attempts and pinging around grid. Black Legion show up at the end and pop a vaga so they appear on the related kills. We dont get into it with Black Legion after having a slighlty mixed fleet comp and several guys afk. Were told we have no honour, so we trot back to our staging system. But once again Brick just kept coming at us o7

http://merciless-alliance.com/killboard/?a=kill_related&kll_id=26739
Sunday night were looking around for something to pew and find Convicted with a random mixed bag shooting an SBU. We do the dishonourable thing and bridge our 30ish man fleet on top of it. Not really ~elite pvp~ but if there's stuff to shoot, were going to shoot it. We dont suscribe to the whole plan your fights and gentlemen agreements between FC's stuff (sorry thunderdome residents :p). After this we get a tip off about some dreads and a mom in low sec shooting a POS. We burn towards it but like usual are just a little bit too late :(

Overall, Delve has been lots of fun for us Merciless aussies so far. Props to all the locals for the GF's so far

Guys I have to tell you that 6VDT is bar none my favorite place in EvE. The phrase "shooting fish in a barrel" doesn't really cover it, because it is WAY more fun than that. Plus the local is flatout priceless. Getting accused of using "PvP Bots" and "epic blobbling" a system using ~8 bombers in a system with ~100 people in it brings me back to why I love EvE. I honestly don't think I have ever seen people get this mad in local.

Anyways we've been hitting that place as much as possible with our little waffle gangs and it has been a blast. Can't say we've been causing mass destruction as of yet because frankly we are so completely outnumbered in there, but when we do snipe someone and get out before the reinforcements get there it's too much fun.

Rumor has it that BR1CK and MM agreed to an NIP with chaot/nulli/huns/etc. Wusti of convicted is convinced of it and has reset chaot/nulli/huns/etc. Right now it seems likely that it's true, I haven't heard any confirmation yet though.

edit: This doesn't necessarily mean the return of :gudfitez: and thunderdome. Nulli, a few huns, and some chaot made a trip to tenerifis last night (lol, 90+ jumps from home) to support the stainwagon. Read here (http://failheap-challenge.com/showthread.php?720-StainWagon-vs-DRF/page2) for basic overview of that (someone will hopefully make a new thread soon).

Everything is going along swimingly. Previous Delve residents continue to deploy? leave? (deploy I'd assume) and Evoke have just landed in KFIE (2jumps from RC staging, in a dead end) with shitloads of supers and caps.

Hopefully they are not massive faggots and don't start dropping 80man super fleets on BS/BC gangs.

This battlereport is gonna be a bit late, so I hope that's not a problem.

I formed up a new idea of mine; RR Myrmidons, each boasting something like 130k EHP when primaried and overheating. They did not have much DPS, but each myrmidon added about 500 DPS tanked with 2 reppers and cap stability provided by Cap Transfers. We could ensure that our primary's hardeners were off as every ship had 2 neuts, 1 medium and one small. The ships are not great, but they were a nice gimmick, so we formed up and got something like 15 Myrmidons in fleet + some tackle and a few armor BCs, totalling 23.

We headed to Fountain, where we hoped TEST would form up to kill us. Sure enough, after we hung out in 6VDT, they formed up. Unfortunately it was rather more than I was prepared for; they had roughly 50 ships. We were preparing to either suicide or run when one of the guys in fleet mentioned a 15 man Brick Squad gang nearby. I hit up Darius III, the Brick FC, and he merged his fleet into ours.

For those of you who are unaware of the geography of Fountain, TEST has a JB from 6VDT to APM, with a long pipe of systems in between. 6VDT is in a dead end, so we pretended to make a run for it by heading to APM. Meanwhile Brick closed in from the Y-2ANO area, coming from Delve. The intention was to force TEST to move quickly to try to cut us off, which they did. Unfortunately, we had intel that their blackbirds had full Gallente jammers, so I asked Darius (who had a mixed shield BC fleet) to primary those first. Eventually, after playing some jumping games, the full fleet, now numbering about 35 jumped into TEST, who were set up on gate.

Immediately, the Myrmidons anchored on me and we go to work. Our spare 2 midslots, filled with jammers, damps, and target painters wreaked havoc on the hostile fleet, taking out a good chunk of their dps, while the reps held fine. Primaries started going down, both for us and for the Bricks. As you'll see in the following videos, none of our ships went below half armor, except for one Hurricane who strayed out of rep range (and was repped up to 100% armor in a matter of seconds.) Everyone was on the ball, tackling, ewaring, repping, and cap chaining. This was actually the main reason for the fleet; to teach everyone how to multitask and respect every role of a fleet. People in fleet who normally flew damage ships learned how to fly logi, logi pilots finally got on some killmails, and people got to try managing their position in space while jamming and damping the correct enemies. Even had we lost, this experience would have been invaluable.

Moving on, our awe-inspiring dronecloud took down target after target, until someone finally screamed "LOOK! A Tengu!" Immediately, we switched 15 medium Neuts on him and he went down in seconds to the drone swarm. By now, there were only a few targets left on field, and I zoomed out to see how many white wrecks. To my complete and utter surprise, only ONE Myrmidon had gone down(he was high at the time and got stuck out of rep range), along with 1 or 2 Brick BCs and some tackle. Conversely, nearly 25 TEST wrecks littered the field.

Once again, not a particularly effective fleet, but it was the most fun I've had in EVE in a long, long time. The idea worked, and who knows, you might see some RR Myrmidons in a system near you in the next few weeks.

Fairly busy weekend in Delve.

It began Sunday with Brick assuming control of several Borg systems/stations during the USTZ ( http://evemaps.dotlan.net/map/Delve/O-EIMK ). By the following morning all of that was SBUd. Hellcats and bombers formed (this is Monday around 1400) to deal with the SBUs and imminent Evoke fleet. Bombers harassed Evoke in their staging system and engaged them on jump-in to MO- where the two fleets met with a fairly predictable outcome ( http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=10584343 ). Evoke then RF'd the systems. I'm not exactly sure how I had to log. All RF timers come out solidly in the USTZ midweek.

Fast forward to Monday USTZ. We SBU and RF 3 Evoke systems (2 stations I think). All timers come out solidly in the EUTZ midweek.

I predict sitzkrieg in this episode of Time Zone wars and that no systems/stations will change hands.

As predicted, the bout of reinforcement timers traded between Evoke and Bricks ended in, nothing.

This weekend was a bit :bennyhill: There was a running engagement between a brick bc fleet and 3 hostile fleets on Saturday. I logged on towards the end of this so can't provide any really good details other than to say we kinda smoked the -A- + pets fleet in 1DH with Evoke, DarkSide, and Goons all being engaged/engaging at various points.

Link: http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=10655080

Sunday was more or less the same. It started with a 3way fight in A-E which we pretty quickly decided we were coming on the short end in...with Death or Glory, Gypsy Band, Evoke. KBs are kinda confused by all this but here's a link anyway: http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=10661086

We regrouped in 1DH, everyone followed, we had better go of it and it was good times: http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=10660202 ( note the nice clear KB report here....no 3 way fighting any more :cry: )

This weekends combat concluded, officially, with a 20man BC gang camping goons and loljumping into Y-2 outnumbered 5 to 1. Around 35? Goons+Friends jumped into us in ZXB. We eventually followed into Y-2 where there were about 85 dudes left at the time. After everyone in Y-2 fucked off we left for home and were lucky enough to catch a Nulli frig gang. We baited and killed them (a dram got away).

Because its the only place in EVE that isnt blue to them? At least the NC only had to go to eastern geminate to get fights.

I'd say because they see a chance for lotsa kills, lotsa trolling*, and to make some ISK. Goons are assaulting Delve (this began last weekend). This weekend everyone and their brother appeared likely hoping to at the very least get a good fight (ie, one they win) or to position themselves to have a nice sweet spot on Goons couch / sell systems or stations, etc, etc.

* Keep in mind, they did launch their campaign by claiming to blue to Brick/RAWR on kugu.

So yeah, it's either the above or, they are simply carrying out their DCF (Drone Cluster Federation) overlord's orders.

In non-combat news, Brick's IT manager (former PL and long suspected by many) turned off our forums on Saturday. On Sunday, PL arrived in Delve. I suspect this weekend was the last weekend even remotely similar we will have for a while. You know, fun?

Brick, MM, Atlas, and Fail killed a Not FoundDOT Wyvren (http://brick-squad.net/killboard/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=141604) today. Not sure of how it was found, just that it was. He was bubbled at a planet, I think he panicked and warped to the wrong thing. He was tackled at the planet and promptly melted as the call for DPS was answer by a few supercarriers and a fuckton of canes.

We rolled 40 down here Friday night to see what the buzz was about (FFFF 80 jump roams), and had a pretty good time.

MM did this pretty funny bomber thing (http://www.rotekapelle.com/killboard/?a=kill_related&kll_id=58138), where they tried to split our fleet or something with a bubble, whilest something like 10 bombers decloaked and randomly bombed the gate. This stripped the shields of the late warpers (shieldtank fleet) from our fleet, but it killed their bubble, so everyone just warped out. We sat on outgate with a bubble up, and they all kinda warped in in ones and twos, decloaking themselves 20 from gate, so what you would expect happened. Originally, I was yelly at fleet because I thought they killed crap, but it turns out that they bounced. I keep hearing about great bomber teams, and seeing retarded cool kill links, but I have yet to bump into this in space. Every time WE try bombers, it's just dumb and we lose bombers.

I had THOUGHT that 8 bombs should have been sufficient to kill canes, but maybe some of their bombs just blew up the other bombs or something.

Cascade or whoever it was up by the fountain entrance couldn't marshall a fleet to fight us apparently, but by the time we got down to Brick, they started formup... we chilled on their gate with eyes on us for about 10 minutes, and they bumped their fleet to about 60, with even-esque logi (they had more, but scimis to our 5 basi v0v)... But their blackbird count eventually exceeded my logi count and we figured it was time to leave/play at space napoleon. Having been out for 3+ h now, we were waning pretty hard and even the fleetporn started to feel stale. So, we start egress, and try to use some creative bubbling to bring them into our optimals if they chased. Luckily, they chased.

This had interesting results (http://www.rotekapelle.com/killboard/?a=kill_related&kll_id=58178).

That link represents 2 fights in system, dictors and everything NOT dictor.

First time, we warped to an outbound, bubbled @50, and effectively split their fleet. Started calling primaries on gate and tackle primaries on the bubble, and their on gate contingent decided to jump through, leaving everyone on the bubble to die. This was kinda nice because the stragglers just kept landing in the bubble well after their force was on the other side of the gate. So we cleaned up for a bit, and then pulled back to gate and drones-out-ed hoping they would jump in and we would have our battle royal. Waited about 4 mins here, before I decided we were too close to thier reship-base, and that we should just keep fleet in motion to see what happened. We again preplaced a bubble and warped fleet to outbound. Immediately, local rebumped, and we held on the outbound to fight them @20. Waiting..... waiting.... suddenly, all their dictors start trickling in to the edge of the bubble and the first eris pops a bubble effectively trapping the rest. OK. POW POW POW, Arty does its work and the tears of the people who are too slow to whore onto mails start flowing. We go ahead and chill again, while we wait to see if their fleet comes to the bubbles, but only a zealot and maybe a blackbird come around this time. They are dispatched, bubbles time out, and we egress again towards home. Same plan in the next system, but this time, our bubble goes up late, and their (presumably sniper) fleet comes in at 100. Meh. Can't kill snipers, and they have more canes on field than we have people in fleet, so, we gf local, and egress, being careful to pop/forceout any front tackle for them.

It wasn't the big brawl we were hoping for, but it was lots of space-chess, and WWAAAAAAAAAAYY better than blueballs, so Thank you to Brick Squad for coming out to fight. We'll lose more to you next time, promise.

That tactic, with 8-12 guys has whelped entire goon cane fleets taking around 80 of the BCs in a 130 or so man fleet. I don't see any of the bomber FCs I know in your BR so, that probably explains it a bit as well. ie, badly spaced bombers, wrong bomb types, etc.

Looked like a busy weekend. I was at a wedding / way to tired to play spaceships all weekend :(

awesome fight last night with delve ppl, especially nulli guys;

we were bombed by mm/brick in kee-n6; roughly 40 bomber, good bomb run but we only lost 4 baddons due to them using kinetic bombs.

http://kb.raidenalliance.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=38222

then we proceed to QX-LIJ; we engaged at gate, both had triage support, we 5 carriers, they 2; we in baddon fleet and nullin in geddon/baddon; awesome fight there; later goons join and start killing everything especially carriers ; pl joins the fight sometime in the middle of slug fest

Back playing again so going to endeavour to post some BRs.

Here's one crossposted from the Nulli Titan kill a few days ago (written by the FC that fight). I've tweaked the spelling / grammar:


I formed the fleet at 2255 and we spent the first 30mins docked in L-6, waiting for the hostiles to make a move. We had eyes on Nulli Secunda in C3N, also sitting docked and just waiting for us to make the first move aswell. Estimating from local chats, we had roughly same numbers, which also show on kb if you exclude the supers.

I personally got tired of waiting, so we made a quick undock, warped to titan, and bridged right away so the Nulli scout wouldn't have a chance to see our fleet composition, like how many bs and shit. We waited another 5-10mins at the midpoint to see what their response would be but, to my surprise, they didn't do anything.

So we made another move, jumping 5 dreads on thier tower and sieging. 1 cycle had almost passed before Nulli started to move. Reports came in of a few nulli dreads undocking, including a typhoon fleet. Would they really commit dreads to the fight?

Well, Nulli support began to burn for the target system to kill our dreads, but we bridged infront of 'em (1 jump before target sys) to intercept. Nulli decided to turn around and go to a titan instead. We repositioned on to the BX-VEX gate (target sys) and waited.

As expected, Nulli lights a cyno right next to our dreads, so we jumped our abaddons in to the system. While we where doing that Wirox started to scream "HOSTILE TITAN, HOSTILE TITAN". The next thought that went trough my mind was: "Who the fuck do Nulli have on standby to hotdrop us?", but we started to get reports that the titan might had made a "FUCK I JUMPED INSTEAD OF BRIDGE" woops. Anyway our supers had already jumped to the midpoint and, because Nulli took so long to move, our 5 dreads had already shot the tower to 25% hull so the tower died shortly after the hostile titan had jumped in. The titan had no chance of escape because of some elite dictor pilots.

The rest can be seen on the KB, or listen to Nulli ts recording:

On Saturday, some random Raiden guys decided to reinforce a POS in Querious with 5 dreads.
They had no scouts and next to no backup, so were promptly hotdropped by Ev0ke / Ewoks and lost all their dreads before a rescue fleet could be scrambled.
Apparently, the tower was reinforced before the dreads died, so we'll see what happens when it comes out.

Quick BR before bed, just had a nice fight in L-6B.

A KRYSIS (ev0ke pets) POS was coming out of RF (CSAA), so we formed an 80 man Abaddon fleet with Triage to try and get a fight. We got word that Goons were heading towards us in a Whelpfleet, so sat around for a few minutes waiting for the tower to come out. Goons decided they didn't want to wait for anything to happen, so decided to come straight to us. We formed on the gate in bubbles, and goons jumped 150+ Hurricanes in to us and the fight got started. We delayed for a couple of minutes on Triage, leaving our few Guardians to try and keep Abaddons alive, so that when we warped Triage in, they were left alone for a full 5 minutes, allowing Triage to keep BS up.

Triage reps were gradually slipping as more and more duders rolled in to system. Most alliances were targeting Raiden (Nulli and Goons/Test & co at least), and Triage Carriers were starting to go down. We kept 1 Carrier in hull for a good 2-3 minutes before it went down, with other Triage carriers starting to fall soon after. The order was given to log in Supers, as we were vastly outnumbered by this point.

Supers came in, Goons went mental (pinging like crazy) and bubbles went up all over the place. More and more bodies poured in trying to kill the Supers on the gate. Local was at around 600 with 150 in the Raiden fleet. Raiden guys were reshipping like crazy (1 guy lost 3 Triage Carriers), and Goons kept bridging reinforcements. PL decided they wanted in on the fun and started to move over, but since the Goon & co fleet was bad and setting keep at range on targets, Titans were popping ships at a phenominal rate. By the time PL/WN were even close, all remaining hostiles had fled the field.

-A- arrived with 70 armageddons right as the fight ended, smacked in local, then flew all the way home again.

When the dust had settled, the field was completely covered in wrecks. We lost a fair few Triage carriers, but looks like the enemy lost more. Killboards are still syncing but here's some links:

We (The Tuskers) have had a little craving for 0.0 recently. Finding no decent fights in EU timezone in Syndicate recently, I decided that our next 0.0 roam would be to sov 0.0. Decided fleet composition was Dramiels with logi & support to celebrate them getting nerfed (we hate them <3), but with no decent wormholes near home, we decided to just try out Fountain, by entering through Cloud Ring. Fleet was mostly Tuskers with 2 friends who I invited along to increase the amount of Dramiels we had.

We ran into a small gatecamp in Cloud Ring who had either terrible scouts or who underestimated how OP Dramiels are who died quickly. (http://tuskers.killmail.org/?a=kill_related&kll_id=11580447)

Moving into Fountain, we headed towards 6VDT ganking a few ships along the way. We had hoped that TEST would be able to form up a fleet, but someone reminded me that they had moved out recently, leaving just their bears behind. We killed a couple (http://tuskers.killmail.org/?a=kill_related&kll_id=11580863) including a Tengu who tried to save his buddy's Drake from my Dramiel + 3 Sentinels.

I missed tackle on a few Carriers nearby who I had hoped would call in friends. However, he decided to blue me after I confused him by pretending I was sold on www.ebay.ru. Round about this time, we had another Guest drop on our vent. Due to the friends on our roam, we were just chilling in the Lounge (annoying to drag guests to a private vent channel if they DC). He said he was an potential applicant and started asking questions. M'kay...

Moving on, we started heading back, this time passing through "northern" Fountain. I spotted another Dramiel and a Daredevil on grid with a stargate in 75FA but the DD jumped through. Dramiel followed me to another gate but refused to get off gate even with Domi/Domi/Hurricane/Harbinger + 2 more or so on d-scan. He jumped into WY and I followed. On the other side was a Caracal at 0 and an arty Muninn at range. Dramiel & Muninn warped off, I engaged Caracal and called the fleet to get on the WY gate in 75FA. Loki landed on the gate but jumped through & managed to warp off before our fleet landed. Caracal turned out to be assault missile fit and I had to call in the Scimitars to keep me up, hoping more would be inbound.

Just as the Caracal hit armor, a Blackbird landed at range as well as the Muninn. Calling in my fleet for extra points on the Caracal, he died just as I got jammed. We started heading towards the Blackbird but 3 Guardians warped in, as well as a Maelstrom & Tempest. I momentarily lost my head but luckily one of my fleet reminded me how OP Dramiels are and we turned around and charged the Maelstrom who was just outside Guardian rep range! We managed to drop him but lost our Sabre and one of our Sentinels to the (arty) Maelstrom. Just as we prepared to charge the Blackbird, the gate started firing and local spiked!

We pulled off the gate as they decloaked - 2 Scimitars, 9 BCs, Broadsword, Falcon, Arazu, Rapier, lolEagle & Daredevil from before - no chance for us to break through their reps nor tank them. They killed the Guardians and we warped to a planet. Daredevil appeared 50km off and a curious game of cat & mouse began as we warped to planets, he would follow us but always landing at different ranges (ie. we warp in at 0, he warps at 100). I was considering splitting the fleet, but considering how low our DPS was and how quick his backup could arrive (small system) decided against it.

After waiting to see what the new gang would do, they jumped out and started camping the gate. We logged off, started chatting on Vent & waited for them to get bored of camping a bunch of frigates in with BCs + Recons. On the contrary, their gang increased in size, swelling up to 35! Camping must be funner than I thought! After more than an hour, a few of us either clonejumped out or just went to sleep, with the rest still chatting on Vent.

The DD pilot convoed my alt and said if I jumped my Loki in or our Scimitars he would let the rest of us ago, an odd request. A little while later, he asked who was our FC in convo, just as the guest on Vent did the same, despite listening to us go on for over 2 hours. The guest suddenly revealed his presence - he was none other than the Daredevil pilot and their FC!

As he gloated, we decided to play with him on vent and move him around different channels. He got mad until we actually let him talk, where he said many many mean things about us and how fail we were to let him get on our publicly available Vent server. :(

After a while of listening to him prattling on, we banned him just as his 35 man gang abandoned their gatecamp. We left without incidence shortly afterwards.

0.0 - srs business.

We started forming up an hour or so before the tower came out, mostly Tornados and Bombers. Heavily out numbered our only hope was bomber runs and well timed warpins. Props to their ahac wing, they were tough nuts to crack.

They were kind enough to continue warping lone subcaps onto the field for several minutes after the capitals died, giving us something to do while looting.

2-3 caps got out as we were out and about in Tornado fleet, which doesn't really need lots of tackle so we were fairly tackle-lite and they popped our bubbler pretty early on.

CFC brought mostly drAkes And dictors to rApecAge the titAn in sAid smAll tower And we used our superior rAnge to snipe At the hostile blob Around 4 times our size. The CFC side hAd decent probers so things were quite hectic. In the end we hAd to pull out As our fleet stArted to dwindle but we won the All importAnt isk wAr :).

*bump*

Found the following BR on eve-kill: http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=12268824. By the looks of it and some measure of interpretation, BDEAL got stomped and lost 5 supercarriers (3 x Wyverns, 2 x Nyx, no km on ship but km's on pods) to self-destruction. Anybody want to let us in on what happened?

Edit:
Short BR I found on kugu:

5 BDEAL supers just self-destructed in TEG-SD in fountain.

Brief battle report: Godfathers <DADDY> deployed SBUs in TEG in order to provoke a fight, much as they have been doing the last couple weeks. 7 BDEAL supers come in to kill the SBUs, and DADDY manages to get initial tackle. Lacking the dps to kill them by themselves, they batphone Nulli and we formed a 180 man Geddon fleet and start burning. DADDY do a good job keeping the supers tackled until we can burn the 12 jumps from our titan bridge, and we start burning through BDEAL support and carriers. Running out of non-super targets, we begin to primary a nyx. Unfortunately, we lacked the DPS to kill him before he self-destructed. This process continues for the other 4 tackled supers, all self-destructing before we are able to kill them.

Super Sunday Titan Kill

This Battle Report relates to the Cascade Associate’s Titan loss on the 5th February 2012 - http://tuskers.killmail.org/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=12349996

Background

So, about two weeks ago Michael Harari, an associate of mine from Molden Heath and member of the TeamLiquid alliance informed that one of his corpmates had spotted an Avatar and an Ragnarok running Sanctums in two adjacent systems in Querious in a dead-end pipe, with the pipe entrance bubbled & the systems cyno-jammed.

http://img528.imageshack.us/img528/7396/titanspot.png

His corpmate had left a Covert Ops in system with both of them for almost a week on end, just observing. After a while, the Titan pilots openly mocked him for how he couldn’t stop them ratting. However, TeamLiquid don’t have the resources in order to take down Titans so he contacted me.

Who am I? A Director of The Tuskers, a low sec piracy corporation who are “friendly” with Shadow Cartel (not blue!), a low sec piracy alliance based a few jumps away from us. Whilst we Tuskers do not have the resources to kill a Titan before his reinforcements could arrive, Shadow Cartel did. So, I reached out to them through one of their alliance executors. He seemed interested and sent a covert ops scout there.

The original idea was to wait until a wormhole opened in the target system to a system near where we are located (Gallente low sec) spawned and then send through Dictors to get tackle, with the rest of us coming down the pipe with gank fit ships, probably the new Tier 3 Battlecruisers which can pack 1000+ DPS and are quick, thus good for burning through bubbles.

Well, the Titans kept ratting without change whilst we were waiting, until the night beforehand..

The Shadow Cartel executor reached out to me and said the cyno jammer in the system the Avatar was ratting in was found to be offline so we could bring in our own capitals and a new plan was made. So, we set an OP the following day at 17:00 as the Titan pilot logged on roughly around that time.

On the day

He logged on before the designated time, so we Tuskers had to decide how we were going to get there – whilst Shadow were bringing in capitals, we would bring subcaps for support and due to our lower average SP. We eventually decided we would use our own carrier to deliver black ops ships to the nearby low sec, stage from there and chain black ops jumps until we get to within 1 black ops jump from the Avatar.

We gave our Bombers to our Carrier pilot and then shuttled down to our staging system of Gehi – an 34j journey from Hevrice, with most of the jumps going through high sec, a nerve wracking experience when you’re an outlaw!

So, we form up and Shadow’s bomber pilots join us and we announce the SEKRET plan…

Covert Plan

We have no titan within bridge range of that system so there’s no chance we can bridge a Dictor or HIC directly onto the Titan. Therefore, we have to work out how to tackle him, this is what we came up with:

1) Chain black ops jumps until our subcaps are set up 1 black ops jump away from Titan without being spotted
2) Get capitals set up 1 dread jump away from Titan without being spotted
3) Get the covert ops alt to light a cyno next to the Titan
4) Jump in Carriers with HICs inside their ship maintenance arrays whilst at the same time bridging in subcap support with the Black Ops bridge
5) Get Carriers to eject HICs
6) Get appropriate stealth bomber pilots to board HICs and bubble up!

So, we follow the plan, with a few difficulties – people being slow, Blockade Runner bringing wrong type of fuel, using more fuel than we thought. In the end we had to revise the Black Ops route we were using to get within Black Ops range of the system the Titan was in due to the need not to be spotted.

So, we finally arrive at step 3 after an hour of getting into position! The titan pilot is stationary as the cyno is up, we bridge in and spam board ship onto the HICs whilst waiting out session change timer and just as the Titan gets up to about 20% of max speed, I manage to swap from my Anathema to to a Devoter and get the bubble up.

After that, he logs off. I swap back to the Anathema after someone else confirms they got a bubble up and start to spam ship scanner on him whilst taking screenshots..

http://img43.imageshack.us/img43/595/20120205192356.png

Our scout races to make it but it takes a while due to the ingates being bubbled to hell as the Titan melts in no time at all (http://tuskers.killmail.org/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=12349996) to our 7 Dreadnoughts + subcaps. Pod turns out to have "only" +5s in it (http://tuskers.killmail.org/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=12350058), explains why he melted so fast, even considered his fit. We extract out safely just as one of his alliance mates logs in inside the system and smacks to the alt that lit the cyno next to the Titan about how all they do is rat and the scout can’t stop them. Alt links him the mail and he grows quiet.

Shoutouts:

Gorski Car from TeamLiquid for scouting him out
Michael Harari from TeamLiquid for contacting me regarding the Titan
Hearnie from Shadow Cartel for setting up the Logistics and getting the cyno alt into system
Asakura Manji from Shadow Cartel for FCing the capital side of the fight
Beh3moth, the corpmate who was bridging us around in the Black Ops
Tsubutai, the corpmate who was the fuel bitch
CCP for reducing session change timer from 30 seconds to 15 seconds.
And big up for Tawa Suyo, my <10M SP corpmate who spent 2 hours buzzing around in his Stiletto to allow us to sneak into Black Ops range without getting spotted in local intel channels, who unfortunately didn’t manage to get on the mail due to the bubbles he encountered

Everyone else who was involved and who brought DPS – much appreciated!

I'm not sure if he was one-shotting them with lolt1 guns, but yes if he was doing it right he should've been 1-volleying every BS. BC die with just a single gun, somtimes two if you get a bad tracking shot, and elite cruisers go 2-6 guns depending on how you hit it (a lot more variable), same with frigs (1 to "omg I cant track this fucking thing").

As far as ratting goes (there are so many reasons to get meta 1 over 0....) the key ones would be your capacitor consumption(its less on the named one), and the increased optimal.

Unless you're getting a direct warp-in from an alt(time consuming and can lower isk/h tbqh), its rather odd where you land on the anomaly, and you usually want the rats 40+ from you. Due to the direction you land, the rats can sometimes be as far as 100km away (warping any closer and you end up with them spawning at 0-20 and you can't track shit).

Also, if he wasn't one shot/volleying the rats with the meta 0 guns, the meta 1 guns would add more alpha to ensure that he DID one-shot/volley everything.

Don't ask me how I know so much about titan ratting. =P

Cross-posting my Battle Report from Kugu.

We (PL) formed up almost 90 minutes ago. RA was floating around and being careless with Supers, and we missed a Titan earlier on due to not being on a Titan. So, we waited, and waited. Sat on a Titan in KFIE for 90 minutes, whilst I alt-tabbed and played some Shogun 2 (killed 4000 dirty Imperials whilst losing 150 using honourable Archers + Samurai). The PL fleet over this time rose up to 130 or so - Herocats, 2 Macharials + Dictors/Hictors, and a handful of suicide Dreadnaughts just in case.

Meanwhile, Elise and Sort Dragon (whom has earnt :madprops: after the Dreadkills last night) seranaded the PL brethren in order to keep them interested - rather than going off to ride Battlefield 3 bicycles. A plan was formed, and it was just a matter of playing the waiting game.

Eventually, the call came. 'Ragnarok is bridging'. Friendly cyno up, friendly bridge up, bridge bridge bridge - 20 seconds or so loading. Macherials + Herocats started the overheated burn through the hostile POS towards the Ragnarok. Dictors/Hictors straight through the POS and bubbled out the other side.

In short regard, the Ragnarok was out of the shields, and the Macherials turned their attention to the Erebus that was inside the POS. The Ragnarok melted fairly quickly under the sustained fire of 120 Tempests (structure lasted 10-15 seconds), once it's shield's had depleted. Erebus next. Wirox 'I can't tell if Dreads are in siege' Crotikus and the second Mach (penifsmash!) had done an absolutely stellar job of getting the Erebus outside the shield, and then going back inside the POS for a Nyx.

Meanwhile, hostiles cynos had appeared roughly 135km from the Erebus. Brave dictor pilots warped to the cyno and bubbled the RA Supercaps and Titans as they jumped in. The Erebus was dropped slowly, 80% armor, 75%. What feels like an abosolute age passes. Hostile Supers are bubbled 120-135km away, and those that aren't are stuck in the POS. 60%, 50%, 40%, 35%. Nyx is now outside the shield, but other hostile Supercaps that were in the POS are now exiting too. The call came - 'Bump the Supercaps back in'. 30% Armor on the Erebus, 25%. Couple of Supers are now exiting the POS forcefield next to the Erebus, but the Erebus is capped out so the rep that they can provide is greatly diminished. Neuts are now spread between the Erebus, and the Nyx. 15% Armor, 10% Armor. Energy transfers from the RA Supers that are trying to crawl out the POS forcefield hit the Erebus, hardeners turn back on and he receives and he starts receiving reps from the nearby Supers . POS Password has now changed, Nyx is crawling back into the POS - Full neuts back onto the Erebus. Better to guarantee one kill than to miss two.

A call goes out for more dreads to login in KFIE, but it's looking grim. 5% Armor, into structure. 90% structure. Carriers start dropping out of warp next to the Erebus, but it's too late at this point - Erebus is in structre and absolutely melting. 40% structure. 20% structure. Erebus dies. There's now a handful of Carriers next to us, outside the POS forcefield. Hostile Titans/Supers that were 130km away aren't bubbled now, but are too far out of range to be effective. Primaries switch to the Carriers, Thanatos dies, Archon dies. Thanatos new Primary. We're not bubbled at this point, and there's a handful of support on the field. Call goes to cancel align, and switch into an orbit on our anchor whilst killing Carriers. Two more carriers die. Align up, as bubbles start getting dropped on us. More support are arriving, but we have a perch above the POS.

70-75% of the fleet initate warp as the last Carrier dies, the remaining 20-30 Tempests, well and truly bubbled (and completely out of cap/charges), turns their focus on killing as much as possible before fulfilling the second of their two purposes in life. Dying gloriously.

RoT left us but we're still p chill. They probably got pissed off with our useless carebears, constantly running missions and flailing around like fucking n00bs.. Massive props to the Bulgarian contingent! ~brofist~

Goodfellas have arrived in Fountain core to kill test dispite them being away..

Couple highlights-

"420" Roam for the Resin boys in alliance. We saw a big light on the Map in Fountain and decided to head down there for the evening. As we hit the JGOW gate in APM scouts called the Happy Endings gang on the other side. They were roughly 80k off gate and appeared to expect us to jump into them. We decided not to oblige at first. FC called for the gang to warp to another gate. 1 Ferox ended up being unintentional bait. He managed to get pointed by a Tengu on gate as everyone else ran. Everyone piles back to the JGOW gate as the scout calls their expected burn to gate. We land and jumped right into them. We lost 2 feroxes on the jump in. Happens. They also expected railgun Ferox...

30 seconds or so after we finish with them the Test gang lands 15k off in APM. A 2-3 minute jockey period begins with jumps on gate to see who can get the upper hand as we were slightly afraid of that that many neuts could do to our cap - already low from the previous fight the minutes allowed cap to rebuild. Eventually they jump into us in APM. Primaries called and we start going to work. 2 people start going low and decide to burn to range to mitigate damage. Then... a quick assessment - these are welp canes... or some variation of it - points aren't needed in 300 man groups, drop to below 20 and you better fit points. Why burn off when we can keep the DPS up close and personal and warp off when we hit 10% shields? No points, no need to run. 1 Cane and 1 Drake got out from the Test gang (to the best of my knowledge). Fun times.

We then went and messed around in YZ- and the surrounding area. Apparently... after almost grabbing a Godfather's Vargur they get annoyed and convo Test to tell them where we are. Godfathers... some respect was lost with that move. Working with the man. Goes to show stagnation and cycling pilots will cause you to just become a carebear pet.... without even sov. Long story short - crappy interceptor scouting leads half the gang to jockeying with the Test gang. It's all fun and games till Logi and ECM show up on the field. We lose 3 or 4 of our Feroxs, call it a day and head back after our ceptors pulled the Test fleet to another system with a well done feint.

All in all - good roam through fountain. Thanks Test for a good time!

I really didn't see a Catch thread, I figured its in about the same as Provi and Curse.

From one of my Corp mates


Exodus vs AAA

So, there we were talking shit in comms as we do and considering what possible mischief we can get up to in EvE. What was pretty epic that at that moment… you know that moment where everyone is just sick of listening to people talk crap and just wanted to shoot shit – well it was then that MisterFalcon (one of our fail pilots) informs us that there is a wormhole leading to some shitty part of EvE called Querious that may have some activity. There was an awkward silence and within a few minutes our nano-faggotry gang was formed.

Basically your Drakes/T3s and recon/webby support with one Scimi and some fail tackle in the form of HakerElite and his Honey Badgering ways. Fail aside, I was in a Tornado for the second time, swallowing (intentional pause) the rusty taste of Minmatar over the clearly superior Amarr.

Anywho, we get into this new and strange place, check map for lights and decide to go to GM- or was it GE- and check out Catch along the way. Now you just know that shit will be awesome on the night when three jumps into the new area we have a Rattlesnake land on our in-gate and jumps through into our gang. A blap later and http://exodus.eve-kill.net/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=13241247 was generated.

Continuing on our merry way we run into a whole bunch of stuff that just immediately docks up when local goes up by one (we felt like we were in Cloud Ring again)… until we run into 2 Hurricanes near EX6-AO who decide to disengage and run and we just think ‘more of the same’ and continue along. We jump into EX6- and surprisingly we see what appears to be a AAA gang forming up and warping to gate. Cynabal, Loki, some Hurricanes, 2x Scimis initially, followed by a Broadsword, Recons and some small tackle and more Hurricanes thereafter.

We are well positioned at this stage, having just jumped in, we have ample time to set up at our optimal ranges from the gate. Drakes running cover for the T3s and our Rapier ensuring that our Drakes are able to point without being caught out with the assistance of the Scimi to keep the primaries healthy until they burn out of the Canes DPS range. So we decide that despite being grossly outnumbered, we will take the fight and die in a glorious fire… well we were actually hoping Belegarath and El Diablo would get owned quickly so the rest of us can run like little girls… but unfortunately not quite how the events unfolded.

We begin trading with AAA and take down their Cynabal and Recon support almost immediately followed by several Hurricanes to respite our Drakes, while AAA managed to get on top of two Drakes (they were non-affiliated to Exodus. so to date we deny they every existed). More AAA pilots join the fight and warp to 0 at gate. Before the mainstay of their fleet realized that they were outmaneuvered – they were attempting to burn our to our T3s but whatever would get near our Drakes would get pointed and Rapier webbed and with their transversal down, the Tornados made short work of primaries cutting through AAA Scimi reps.

AAA begins catching on at this stage and most of their fleet begins reproaching the gate forcing us to move back in whilst sending their healthily tanked and low sig Loki up front to try and catch us out. They also figure out our alignment send small tackle around our fleet to provide warp-ins on our T3s. We manage to take down most of the small tackle as they get near the Rapier but some get through and our gang is forced to change alignment. At that stage the Broadsword decided it was a pro-time to bubble up, forcing whatever AAA had set to land on us, land in the bubble. Whoever that Broadsword pilot was… thanks buddy, you’re a champ (let us know if you want in!).

Notwithstanding this, their captors get quite close to us providing a potential warp in from the gate, forcing us off field to a nearby planet at 100km. We assume that they would warp right after us and the order is given to again pull range and re-establish our formation at the planet. On cue, AAA warps in at 100 and is again in our optimal range. They start taking significant losses at this stage without being able to catch up to any of our ships. They warp in Assault Frigs, some more Canes – some of their pilots reshipped, we even had Abbadon’s warp into the fight… for some reason(?).

We continue decimating their fleet until only a handful remained and we opted to burn in and take out their Scimis, which quickly diaf-ed. What remained of their ships begin scattering as we hero-point what’s left on the field… especially the Loki. Oh how we wanted that pesky Loki. They warp some random things back in and a Munin who attempted to pop the Loki wreck when he went down… too bad the Tornado guns just ended a cycle and alpha-ed him immediately on landing.

GF’s in local and we start looting the field and generally coming to terms as to what just happened. One of our eager Drakes warps back to the scene of the crime (gate) and with a burned out prop mod decides to loot stuff. What a champion. A AAA Broadsword lands next to him and engages some light support Drakes/Canes/tackle inbound. We warp back in at range and resume the blap-fest cleaning up whatever landed. We caught a few of their loot fairies as well which certainly did not help the AAA ISK efficiency in that fight.

After all was said and done http://dog-net.org/brdoc/?brid=6843 was the outcome of that engagement.

Real props to AAA for staying on the field after taking such losses and managing to pull away some decent fleet maneuvers to try and combat our strengths in that engagement. I certainly hope we can have some more good fights in the future and we are certain that the tables will get turned on us one of these days. GF.[

We've decided to move to another area to spice things up a bit - but decided on one more roam in the area last night.

After consulting the map (Dora anyone?) "Map" told us to head to APM, down in fountain, as it had the big light on. We figured after that we could head to 6vdt and enjoy some time with Test. Test almost always fights - lots of love for Test ;)

APM had cleared up by the time we arrived. So 6vdt was the next set dest.

http://exodus.eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=13300343

That is the result. Nothing super glorious, and to be honest, not really note worthy in itself. But it was a a good primer to get them motivated for a fight as 6V local was around 85 when we jumped in originally.

After about 30 minutes we decided to leave. Naga undocks... Cane undocks.... bunch of other stuff undocks... so we stay for just a little bit longer. The call is made to leave again as they are not leaving docking range (nor the 5 carriers sitting on the undock). One ship that we primed multiple times without being able to kill was a friggin Raven... we'd meet him again later though.

Dest is set for APM. Ceptors sent ahead. Everyone burns - call is made of an Arazu/wolf set up on our ingate in APM. Local there had yet to spike so we decided to jump in and expected a fight as both of those pilots had been in 6V on the undock earlier. Just as expected, we pop local - Test pops local. Local slowly climbs to roughly the mid 80s from the original 16 that was made of our fleet, the arazu/wolf, and 2 guys presumed to be docked. Test arrives in standard Test format (staggered and no real fleet comp to speak of). We begin with the tackle when all of a sudden... Cyno... That DAMN RAVEN PILOT AGAIN. 2 Chimeras, 2 thannys and a Wild Nid appear out of no-where. We just continue to work through what we can as we increase range. We eventually grab enough range and take out enough that Test begins to disengage. We tackle 2 carriers and begin to work on one. Not really expecting to kill it, just trying to force the fight again. At this point we have a falcon pilot arrive in system that had burnt to catch up to us. He jams one of the carriers. We decided, while shooting the one carrier, that it was time for that Raven to die. With the carriers now jammed we make short work of the Raven. Going back to the carriers the expected "save me!" response force comes. This time including an Avatar... why? OK though. We begin the slaughter-master's work again. This time though on their warp in we lose a drake due to just bad positioning and one of our Nado's scrubs it up warping back to someone at 0 from 40 AU away landing right in the middle of their group and dying. Knowing we couldn't face them directly with the loss of 1/4 of our DPS ships down we decided to try and string them out warping to a gate and then another hoping to get their tackle to chase and get popped off of their main fleet. No such luck :|

Final Totals:
http://exodus.eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=13300500

Due to some "minor" heat damage and being slightly low on paste the original decision to attempt to pull Test tackle out as we moved towards KVN put us on path to heading up to YZ to repair and not use the meager amount of paste we had left. Low and behold we find a 99% group sitting in I-CUVX camping the 75FA gate with an onyx/rokh and some other misc. BCs. 2 Ceptors and our surviving 2 drakes are sent in to get tackle. 99% flees to the 14YI gate where they jump just as our tackle lands. Everyone is called into 4-C and onto the 14YI gate. 99% held their cloaks for a while then engaged our tackle. We jumped in and one of our nado's scrubbed up and died in the ensuing fight :facepalm: From memory 3 ships managed to get out. A drake that was untouched but also a drake and harby that were in structure. It was essentially a 9v9 fight that we shouldn't have lost anyone in... happens I guess.

http://exodus.eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=13300631

After this we decided to finish heading to YZ with a quick look into WY with no Godfather fleet put up when we poked our heads in. Fleet repaired and we headed home after a fun time yet again in Fountain.

Thanks Test!

There is a PL/TEST side of the fight found here (http://www.evenews24.com/2012/05/25/bloodbath-in-delve/).
Nulli side of the story (quoting KKASS' Jean Leaner):
From the perspective of a Hictor that died eventually:

To preface this fleet was entirely designed as a chance to bait out a favorable engagement with PL supercaps and engage.

After getting into NOL- we cynoed in dreads at 300 to the fleet, which PL promptly bubbled, while lighting a cyno(with a hound lol) next to our fleet. We managed to nuke the hound and send the large part of PL's fleet at random spots in system. This was key because it allowed us to group with our dreads rather than having the PL supercaps cyno into them 300k above us where we could offer no assistance. We warped up to our dreads aligned everything down, and warped on top of the tengu's and drakes, promptly killing a large amount of them while awaiting the eventual PL supercap cyno.

When it came all hell broke loose, with progodlegend yelling for tackles on all the supercaps I disengaged my broadsword and immediately burned for the furthest bumped titan, anticipating it to be the first ship killed(it was). Black legion cyno'd in roughly 25 supers and we brought 12 of our own(These numbers have the potential to be well off, I didnt count). We went to work on the PL titan and eventually killed it. We actually had no real super FC running our supers, so issues like who to kill and who to rep became a problem early on, until someone stepped up as a hero of nulli and handled it all like a fucking champion. Damage was shifted to a PL Ragnarok which promptly drifted into pos shields, so we primaried Shado's Avatar(No its not shadoo), taking him down to 30% armor before we literally ran out of tackle, and PL brought in enough triage and extra supercarriers to even the numbers up and ensure the titan was saved(it also warped and jumped just in case).

At this point with no tackle, and more supers on field we decided it was time to get the fuck out(this is when I died, so I'll peice this together off the picture I was painted) We did an outstanding job clearing tackle, although a Hel did get DD'd off the field instantly(sorry togae ), we managed to get out with a wyvern being primaried and DD's on it being spooled up, and saved Elo Knight as well who also was able to safely extract while being shot. We had some hiccups with getting everyone in our POS, and BL was probed down in their safespot with one unaligned super, who was tackled when they warped off. They considered saving him, but seeing the PL supers pass them in warp Elo declared "No he's dead, we're leaving". We tried to save it by clearing tackle, but arrived to late and it died anyways. Progod continued to engage for a rediculously long time killing the Test and PL reships as they continued to come in. Eventually we safed up in our POS and declared this, Best fight we've ever had in eve.

Saw the old thread had been locked with instructions to make a new one for just Delve. So here it is....and here we go boys and girls. It looks like things are just heating up. Since it's already been leaked and there's spies everywhere anyway, I'll reproduce in part two broadcasts from The Mittani.

Early hours on 6/25:
"You have three days to prepare. We - and 'We' means 'Everyone' - are going to Delve, and it will burn. No mercy, no respite, no 'freeports', just brutal conquest - conquest which will not stop until this threat to our bloc is extinguished. If that means that we must set all of Catch on fire to remind this ex-NC, ex-IT, ex-BoB...their proper place in the universe, so be it. "

Afternoon:
"WAR, WAR IS UPON US: Solar Fleet and Gypsy Band have now announced their deployment to Delve. Raidendot and Initiativedot have joined the fray. Nulli, -A-, and the entirety of the eastern galaxy are now forming in order to push into Delve; we are on the verge of the first true East vs West conflict in EVE history."

Should be the biggest conflict in over a year and it all starts in Delve...

CFC is intent on pushing into the southern alliances' sov after Delve, so it all depends where they choose to hold the line. From what the CFC 'powers that be' say, the southern coalition seem to think they now have a bloc that can realistically oppose Goons & Friends...I also get the impression CFC is a bit worried this is true or could become true if left unchecked. To me this gives both sides a reason to fight a serious proxy battle in Delve that will not run out of steam after a few setbacks.

Sadly, the people who could make the threat realistic are on goons side or won't fight because :tech: The biggest threat to CFC at the moment is CCP growing balls enough to nerf tech moons.

Goons are already preparing for the Tech nerf by moving investments into raw asteroid minerals. What, you thought Hulkageddon was just for griefing?

I foresee lots of epic subcap battles to start this. Then either SoCo loses a (super)cap fleet or PL dumpsters the SoCo with super fleets that people start blue balling hardcore. Nulli moves to the North, RA moves to low sec and -A- move to NPC Catch.

What would be hilarious is if NC./BL put down their arms and embraced with SOLAR to start rampaging across the north and taking all dat Tech.

Horsedookie. Nobody (ie CFC) is going to forgoe months of hundreds of billions of profit because "CCP is definitely going to nerf it at some unannounced date in some unknown way". Yes, they may be pouring ISK into some other commodity but the sure as heck don't want to give up tech so long as it's profitable.

(ps hulkageddon is meant to drive up tech prices...any mineral price buff is incidental and tiny compared to mineral prices changes after dronenerf)

Some big fleets starting to form up...also shows that 150 drakes beats 80ish ahacs and tier 3s even if the smaller fleet costs more. Also, look at all the alliances involved on both sides: Goons, Test, FA, SMA, Razor, PL, Executive Outcomes, Nulli, Vera Cruz, -A-, Raiden, Red Alliance, Cascade Imminent. Looks like some of the Soco still need to deploy (only a few Raiden and Red Alliance), but CFC is more or less fully deployed now. No cap fights that I've seen so far...should be an exciting weekend.

Depending on how many supers Raiden lost with Ankou/X13 leaving(Finfleet alone literally made up ~1/2 of the Raiden supers, and theyre still there so its not that huge), the supercap gap isn't really gonna be that huge, and depending on how many supers the SoCo has, it may be quite even.

When I was in Raiden we alone as an alliance outnumbered the entirety of Goons entire bloc of supers. Now, I'm sure both sides have gotten rid of lots of useless taxi's in the meantime, but supercarriers are dirt cheap (speaking from the POV of most decent supercap owners, Raiden used to have a lot of these) and I'm sure many ppl have traded in for them.

Assuming AAA can pull up some supers, and/or Solar bring their supers, shit could get VERY dicey for the Goon powerbloc in terms of supercap/cap fighting ability. What'll be interesting to see, is whether the SoCo can pull the subcap numbers. If they can pull 1/2-2/3 of the numbers goons can pull subcapwise, Goonbloc's gonna lose, plain and simple. (Then again, SOLAR entering the war on AAA/SoCo's side will prob pull NCdawt in, which might even up the capital/numbers balance a bit - NCdawt seem to have only above-average numbers of supers, but can put together a good-size subcap fleet to augment goons if it comes to that)

In the above scenario(Minus NCdawt and co), best they can hope for is to keep their morale up long enough and cause enough attrition to bring the "we have unlimited isk, you don't" into effect.

In the meantime, profiteers like myself and most of WH space will rejoice as Tengu/Nanoribbon prices become obscene..... =D

Posted with some links to several fights involving 250+ in Delve but looks like too many links starts requiring manual moderator approval, so I'll summarize by saying CFC has had some good victories yesterday and today.Today there was a 350 man drake fleet that inflicted 10 bil on a 150 man t3/ahac fleet with few losses, and 150 man drake fleet that inflicted about 7 bil losses on 80ish man t3/ahac fleet last night. Basically SPs and shiney ships against manpower...manpower so far is winning out. A few minor CFC losses when odds were more even.

Killmails show CFC more or less fully deployed, including members from Goons, Test, PL, FA, SMA, Razor, Executive Outcomes and others. Soco looks like they've got a few guests still to arrive at the party, just a few Raiden and Red Alliance guys and no Solar yet, but Nulli, Vera Cruz, -A-, En Garde, Cascade Imminent seem fully deployed.

No capital showdowns so far afaik. Should be a very fun weekend to be in Delve, don't miss it if you have a chance to be there.

FIGL ROAMS TO DELVE.

We took are traditional T1 - Cruiser Roaming gang into the region expecting a quick stomping by the big red dot that we set as are destination. 319-3D. With 200+ people in local, they seemed quite occupied with camping the station and occupying the local chat channel.

We picked off a few different stragglers/ratters that seemed not to notice our smallish cruiser fleet of around 20+ (I don't feel like digging up the links sorry fhcbros)

After about an hour of circling delve looking for things to fight. We decided to park ourselves in FWST on the PR- gate. My reasoning behind this was to deny any more neutrals from forming up in 319-3D and hopefully forcing the blob to take notice of us. Intel reports they are forming another fleet to come and "steamroll" us off the gate. Perfect, as it was now late and most of my FIGL bro's were suggesting Kumite.

Their fleet parks on YZ9 on the FWST gate, while we wait on the other side. In attempt at the basic strategy I have my fleet cross jump them a few times to try and split aggression and engage in a more favorable position for my fleet. The defense fleet was adept at blocking this manuever and we only managed to kill one of their hurricanes that was stuck on the wrong side of the gate.

After the hurricane is down I call for fleet to align/warp for the sun as we see local climb and gate flashes abundant. In mid warp I order safe spots made and to warp off as soon as you land at the sun. I warp to my specific spot that was within scan range from the sun, I see that they have sent the majority of their fleet to the sun after us. I call for fleet to all warp to myself, and then wing warp us back to the YZ9 gate @ 100.

Their scout on the gate reports our locations, and just as expected they warp their fleet from the sun right on top of us @ zero. Spaceship Honor Battle Combat FIGHT.

It was a great fight, I R sad it took so long for them to form and shoot us.

We will be back.

Bit of an odd fight in Delve today, despite being in it I don't really know what happened so maybe someone else does:

http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=13861479

Story time:
Was in a frig fleet that was formed to try and encourage some entertainment, as SoCo weren't interested in the tengu fleets formed up earlier (fair enough, they were a bit big). After wandering around and derping a bit, whilst SoCo bombers whittled away all the more retarded frigs (probably about 30 frig kills to bombs over a few systems, how does one lose a rifter to a single bomb anyway?) the frig gang merged with a RZR led drake fleet. Gloriously inflating the numbers but killing my fun (i decided to be the solo hero_scimi for a 100+man frig gang. was huge amounts of fun, took about 15 minutes to work my way through broadcasts on my own after every bomb :D ).

As we'd joined this particular party late i'm not entirely sure on the details, but it seems the drake fleet had been flirting with a SoCo loki fleet. One fleet running away, the other chasing... then reversing roles, like two shy teenagers unable to broach the subject of fellatio. Eventually the SoCo fleet bravely stood and fought, and the CFC/honeybadgers bravely jumped into them. Turned out not to be a very fair fight with the drake fleet logi's comfortably keeping anything that broadcasted alive, whilst loki's slowly died. Then all the SoCo logistics warped off, but the loki's didn't. I can only assume the loki's were bubbled (as you'd expect) but no-one had bubbled the logi's... still seemed a bit callous to just leave all your 'shiny' out to dry.

With no logi's all the loki's exploded and some cfc nerdlets were nearly orgasming on comms over their shiny loot. which was kind of cute. I also discovered that if as a logi pilot you say "send me 5m and will add you to WL" before a fight you can make decent isk. It turned out to actually have been isk well spent for a couple of guys too. ^^

Anyway, first time i've logged on and anything has actually happened in this 'war' so that was a nice change and an entertaining few hours.

So we got word yesterday that Soco was forming at 15:30, formed 2 drake fleets, tengu fleet, and test has a rokh fleet, all to full capacity, to meet Soco's formup. I was in Tengu fleet, we titan bridge to D-3 (I think), 1 jump out from Soco's home system in 319. Dodged a couple massed bomber runs, lost a command loki and a few tengus. Bridged titans into system, used them to bridge into 319. Soco had decided to stay docked up, as poster above said, fair enough. Instacanes took potshots at bombers and other random undockers. Soco got trolled mercilessly though by the combined trolling might of CFC (say what you will about CFC but don't say we can't troll with the best of them :P ).

Later, we got word Soco was coming to 1DH with about 150, so we formed up tengufleet again. Soco turned around and went home. Tengufleet reshipped a few times between drakes and frig, apparently due to conflicting intel that's beyond this grunt's security clearance. When I logged for RL obligations, CFC was going with 200ish frigates to 319. At some point afterwards, the fight mentioned above happened. I don't know much about it, but I do have 6mins of soco comms: http://soundcloud.com/dariush_records/a-roam-03-07

I logged back in to a broadcast to bring drakes to 319. Apparently the aforementioned frig fleet had camped 319 station for 4 hours and soco finally undocked with everything they had. We had a titan bridge running continuously to 319 for reshipping and fought with 200-300ish CFC against 200ish Soco also reshipping. We killed a few dudes 3 times or more. The first fight went for about 15 mins, with drake fleet getting increasingly larger and FC just calling targets non-stop. We saw hurris, drakes, recons and scimis first, with odd bombing runs throughout. Soco docked up for about 20 minutes and then came with maelstroms. I got popped then came back with another drake. Meanwhile the surviving Maels docked up. After another 30-40 minutes or so on the station, Soco came with tier 3 BCs. They tried to provide support with half the tier 3s while the other half burned out from the bubbles, presumably to snipe. Drakefleet followed the burning tier 3s, someone got a warp in and dropped bubbled, and we killed them all. Shortly after, we departed back to 1dh. Good job to Soco, clearly they had a lot of fight in them. Good job to my CFC guys for reshipping and keeping the fight up as well. All in all it was just an awesome experience and I could care less who won...that said...we won :)

So far the SoCo/-A- aren't showing the numbers or commitment at all.

Also, I don't know why the fuck they'd adopt that loki doctrine. It's complete and utter shit.

Artillery Loki's - Good idea. The rest of their fit? Utter shit.

Looks like I overestimated the SoCo by quite a bit if this is what theyre showing up with so far. :roll:

Just to add some more details, the drake fleet was on its way to reinforce a CSAA pos (alleged to contain a baby titan), when rear scout informed us that there was a fleet of Loki's following us. After we jumped into 9O-8W1 from UEXO-Z, the (RZR) FC bubbled the gate, and took the drakes out to 60km to fight them when they jumped in. Lokis setup 20km off the UEX side, and left it a stalemate. Vee cyno'd in a second drake fleet behind the Lokis, who engaged it, and RZR FC sent dictors and frigs to lock down the Lokis. We burned towards the gate and jumped to find the Loki fleet bubbled, and watched their guardian wing warp off, leaving most of the Loki's behind. FCs started calling primaries, but at that point it was basically a case of lock as many ships as possible, as Lokis were dropping like flies.

FC had previously called for Drakes to load Exp missiles, and the Lokis seemed to have switched out hardeners for kinetic, so that may also have contributed to the general rout.

Don't forget En Garde, Cascade Imminent, Vera Cruz, Red Alliance, Raiden. and R.OL for Soco. I don't know if they are fully deployed but killboards show significant activity in Delve from all of them. Cascade Imminent has more kills than Nulli does. There are regularly 400+ Soco in 319 and the alliances named, along with Nulli and -A-. Seems like Soco doesn't coordinate/cooperate as well as CFC (everyone down there except PL gets fleet broadcasts on jabber from Test, Goons and their own alliance, and has access to all three comms). Also the policy of holing up in station has probably hurt Soco's participation rates, as I'd guess many people don't bother to log on just to be station camped. I think the sort of turtle strategy Soco adopted is bad for morale and prone to encourage a downward spiral in enthusiasm and participation at just the time they most need their manpower.

That said, we did get some epic battles last night, while Soco welped about 80 of our drakes the night before. There are definitely always groups willing to engage smaller CFC groups of 20-50 and always fools and bombers to take potshots at on both 319 and 1DH/F20 undocks. All in all, pretty entertaining personally, if not always epic. Eve at its best is still punctuated by periods of boredom anyway.

So there was a big fight yesterday in C3N-3S. We the S2N/SOCO crew where defending an Ihub (i think) that came out of reinforced. They CFC/PL wanted it dead.

Both sides ran multiple fleets with varying composition.

Nulli (s2n) ran an alpha fleet consisting of Maelstroms an support.
Think -A- ran tengus.

So fight was on.


We bridge into system, TiDi immediately kicked in to like 30%. Warpin was called on the ihub to face the enemy drake fleet. Our allies came on grid to.

Fight starts TiDI is now permanently locked between 10 an 15%. Drakes are going down fast (in 10% TIDI noting is fast, but yeah..) targets are being called 3-5 at the time. Some casualties are sustained but not much at this point.

My sabre go down in flames without having the opportunity to use even one bubble..

As im reshipping into Maelstrom (died in a fire immediately after loading grid)PL/CFC side jumps in titan, supers an dreads fitted for BS killing.

Our ships now starts falling quicker and quicker, we are still steadily damaging the enemy, an downs 4 dreads. fleet starts to align out since we where getting free of bubbles, just as the entire Maelstrom fleet is about to warp (call was given) a blue dictor drops a bubble on the entire blue fleet, catching basically everyone except the reds.

Fleet continue to drop and tries to disengage, eventually succeeding.

Fun fight, we got a decent number together (916) the enemy had a lot more (1401) and decided to drop in 19 titans, 31 super carriers, 29 dreads, 28 carriers.

I assume we lost isk war. 99 maels comes out at 30 bill?, then 23 tengus at 15-ish? vs 194 drakes at 15-ish i guess an 4 dreads at approx 10, then 20 rokhs at 5-6 bill?

Of course it's Delve and no one keeps sov in Delve forever or even a long time. Who had it this time last year? Broski? I was not around then.

Yeah, but this time there is no Tek Enetheru to rely on who brought them back out of their emodramalama the last 2 times. They took this "wait it out in Stain" a bit too far imho. I understand that they don't really stand a chanse vs the blob that has amassed against them, but they could've done much more to "sell" good. (like jam c3n or other key systems)

They have plenty and enough ISK to replace those 15. The real ~loss~ will be the potential super pilots saying "uhm no, won't jump in supers here m8" as its been seen plentiful with other coalitions. Maybe -a- is different and that won't be the case this time.



I still don't understand why -A- would think it was a good idea to put a super fleet on TEST's main station. Thats literally asking to get your shit kicked in.

-A- is not the first alliance to do that and welp some supers ))

I know, but I atleast figured them to learn from others before them.

It would seem it hit them quite a bit since they hanve't engage in any major sovfight since the super welp. cripes.

Honestly -A- hadn't been doing much sov right before that either, from my US TZ perspective(probably doesn't mean much).

Interesting note, there are some rumors going around that TEST's big brothers(PL) are getting bored and some are starting to move to low sec. If this is true, it will be interesting to see how the little bird flys on it's own for the first time.

Fly?

If that were to happen, we'll do what we always do run around like chickens with our heads cut off, throwing rifters with lasers at everything.

Given that PL fleetnumbers are increasing with summers end, please care to elaborate your blatant bullshit propaganda :)

Then let me confirm that we are not moving anywhere right now and that people are slowly coming back inside to play internet spaceships.

Yeahhh no. New fleet concept and with summer ending (history proves PL has a lul in the summer) means we aren't going anywhere. This is what happens when you listen to everything Maka says.

Maka wasn't the one that said it, otherwise I would have just totally believed it and not said it was a rumor :). It will be an interesting winter with the russains unable to go outside and PL numbers up as well.

Out of curiosity anyone know how TEST numbers are affected by the seasons?

Like Fara says, we lose some activity in the summer and early fall, when school starts, and folks come out of the woodwork during the traditionally colder months.

So did they just undock in waves or did they all just die miserably in a blob?

Also how many logi did you have in that fight or was it all local tanks?

Darkside. usually runs with a few nano-Basis, who can't fit whore guns like the dishonro Scimi.

Does Catch fall into this thread's remit?

WTF is this (http://hydra.killmail.org/?a=kill_related&kll_id=15015446)? It's late 2012, how do people fuck up this much for 30mins straight?! I too would keep reshipping and aggressing ships I clearly can't hold down to kill. :psyduck:

I know right. I could let the dual prop with T2 guns version go as having a niche, but those fits... scram web no prop HM drakes, dual asb drakes and succubi, scram shield talos, meta guns maelstrom with 40mil mwd, utterly 0 EHP nanod heavy tackler ares with a cloak.

Actually I think these pilots lost their minds first, but all hydra can think of is the killmails. It must have surely been like fighting retarded bots to just kite them about. Or zombies... maybe it was a halloween against-the-horde thing after all.

So after some shenanigans with the Orca getting trapped in Catch, we found a wormhole over to NPC delve. After jumping in, I saw an Enyo camping a small bubble on a gate, and figured I'd load up a frigate killer of some kind and go brawl him down. As I was moving to grab my new Jaguar for the job, seems the Enyo got popped. I come back to see a Flycatcher and a Pilgrim cloak up on the gate, upon further investigation I discover they're Goons. After jumping, on the other side of the gate are two more goons in system, neither are visible, but there's a Cynabal on scan, so I figure that's one of them.

I rouse Sasha and Rialean, and we all pop into Tier3s with plans for some kills. Sasha is in a Naga, I'm in a Talos, and Rialean is in an Oracle. This puts Sasha in the position of bait, since he's got the best tank. He warps in, boats over to the gate, and the Flycatcher decloaks. Followed shortly by a Falcon, and the Pilgrim I saw. We spring our trap, warping to the gate at 20 and begin our DPSing. Tier3s do an amazing job of pumping the DPS. Falcon is called primary first, he drops pretty quickly. Next up is the Pilgrim, who got alpha'd quickly into armor when Rialean first misfired once on him before properly switching to the Falcon. He boosted his shields back, so he was apparently ASB fit. We worked him down through only one more boost, and he dropped out quickly as well. The Flycatcher never dropped a bubble sadly, but we dropped him all the same. All the pods got out, but Sasha did enjoy the fact he survived in armor.

so it looks like black legion and Solar are officially buddying up to make a play for Querios, wonder if they have any plans to link up with DD and -A- and stainwagon, who seem to be retaking their old space for the 4th(?) time.

Do they have the numbers to match any of the big players when it comes to taking sov, even with the Stain duders on tow?
