So, half of the group is messing around on comms trying to figure out a Fraps issue. Another 1/4 of our group is just making fun of that half trying to figure out the Fraps thing. The rest all stated we weren't really "playing" tonight.
One of our inty pilots then begins to scream in a channel that he has a gang to fight. 20? -7- and 15-20? of sound mind. He ends up doing this for almost 15 minutes. Normally, once a target is seen it is a quick form up and people start undocking before we even have a game plan and fleet/dest set up. Apparently Fraps is more important?
Previously the provi guys had pulled a pretty clever trick of leaving half of their fleet in kbp7 and the rest a little off the 9-f gate in g-5. I wasn't there to witness it, but essentially, once their scout confirms us in warp they jump in the other half and warp over to the 9-f gate. Worked earlier and had caught a Drake of ours that couldn't get off fast enough. All in all a good move. "Fearing" this - we all warp off to a quickly made off-grid pounce in our standard Nano-set up. As we begin to land at the pounce it appears as though the provi fleet moves to their JB and jumps down to KBP.
A scout is already in system there and shows "CIA intel" (basically a quickly grabbed screen shot). We quickly come to the conclusion that jumping into it with nano stuff is highly questionable. Being a simple quick 100+AU warp and station dock to switch comps to actually take the fight, we go and reship to armor. As we're in warp across G-5 the gang in KBP is roughly 35 now with more on scan presumably at the JB.
Eventually we get onto the other side of the gate from them. Final calls were given; primary and secondary are called out from the images, Target calling is then handed over. Jump is called. DPS breaking first is called. And the fun begins. We brought a tempest with 2 large smart bombs in the highs to clear drones off the guardians. At one point as the guards were burning to smart bomb range 3 of the 4 are jammed - fuck ec-300s. I swear. One was cap'd out and couldn't even "burn" to the tempest. One of our guards drops to 60% structure at this point. Some of the DPS guys hearing the guards have some trouble are questioning the jump in in fleet chat at this point. Target calling is continued and as the drones are wiped off the field, guardian reps begin to stabilize. Then... our booster shouts on comms that we're going to lose our legion. First thought... that sucks, not much we can do to help that now. About 2 minutes later he is asking if we're going to save the booster. Confused why it isn't dead yet, we warp 2 guards over to put reps on it while the fleet continues it's own thing. Guards land and rep him up. At this point it is just a matter of cleaning up the respective fields and station.
Good probing was called out in local for them getting our boy. On comms... he then admits it isn't an "unprobeable" set up. Jeering is then done at him, limited though as it didn't backfire to much. None-the-less, they did a good job taking advantage of the situation and probing him out.
The entire fight turns the other way most likely if we lose the one guard. They did an excellent job of neuting the shit out of one of our guards, jamming the rest, and attempting to blap the one. Just didn't go their way last night. EASILY could have though. We like a 3-1 guard ratio... more like a 2.5-1, last night we had a 4-1 and even worse it was a 4-1 with a decent 4 or 5 ships that should have stood out like a sore-thumb. Provi guys did a good job and almost swung the fight to their side while our t3s/dps were 60k off gate... not a good place to be if logi starts to die!
Here is the BR: http://dog-net.org/brdoc/?brid=8251 -not sure why it isn't showing-lost an inty about 15 minutes before the fight in that system and a RFFT during the fight.

I'll update with Fraps as we go. I personally prefer fraps from the logi POV - but no logi was frapsing last night. Thus here is one of the POVs from one of the Lokis. If one of the other views give a more interesting perspective I'll edit this to the other POV. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-3wrMfkCCE&feature=plcp
