I actually have an offline spreadsheet these days, as i dont have access to the one I scraped data for any more.
Also, i think it was only C6s (region 30) that had constellation-based statics, but not sure without checking, which is :effort: (also, it appears that random links are also limited to regions, and have the same respawn behaviour as sites, but its REALLY hard to test that crap)

You can get a snapshot of the data that drives wormnav.com from http://dl.eve-files.com/media/1009/M...eel%5B1%5D.zip

They had around 80ppl visible at once, though a lot of them were mercs not just AH. I think we (CCRES) peaked at around 45ish in corp chat. So not quite a hundred, and we didn't break 50, least not when I was logged in.

Don't really log in these days but even when I was last active seemed most C5-C6 corps liked dropping 5 carriers on ya. Which is fine except it also means fleet sizes grow beyond 10, which is a bit bleh to me. You guys make it sound like these days it's mainly larger gangs out there in C5+, and by that I mean 10-20man fleets is normal and common. Is that so?

Tanks are like Pokemon, gotta collect 'em all.....
All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

That IRC BR. Fuck, were they AFK or something?
Great post! Thanks for sharing.

I'm having a lot of fun playing EVE. In the age of unsubs and expansions nobody gives a shit about, we must be doing something right, right?
If you open into the Aquila wormhole, you are probably all clear to raid the arkonor. We are likely to be flying Caldari battlecruisers out of some random nullsec hole.
One such opportunity came along this week in Querious, as we zoomed this carefully balanced fleet comp 15 jumps into a Cascade Imminent dead end bearing constellation. We'd had some previous fun in the area, so were expecting the camp-fires to be lit on our way out, and sure enough the limitations of the scout Drake were soon exposed.
While the surviving Drakes logged due to cowardice, back at the hole our Mining Vessels were quickly surrendering to the good people from Ash Alliance.
Pleasantries exchanged, we formed up a better Querious roam fleet and headed out to rescue our logged bros from the Cascade. Pretty soon after we entered the area, their PVP ships started forming up and we got a fun fight going off a station. When your opponent warps out, safes up, and starts saying "Stick around for 10 minutes" it's a fair bet some kind of reinforcements are on their way. We started moving back up the pipe to get an idea of numbers as their fresh fleet gave chase. Looked like a gang of 30 or so mixed BCs / Tackle / scrubships, and they jumped ahead of us to block the exit route back to lowsec. We tried to get them to jump into us at first (no dice) so eventually tried coming into the key system from a different gate. All in vain however as the on-the-ball welcome committee was in place when we jumped in and burned. We wormhole people find it scary when the overview gains a scroll bar, so hearts were pumping!
Somehow we only lost one Drake as we pulled range and killed tackle. We sat and pewed around for some time until it was clear the blob were rooted to the gate and their tanks were holding. We decided to hit the sack and lost a skimmie extracting from the lowsec gate due to a mix-up!
Thanks to Grev and the Ash Alliance dudes for a fun fleet, and thanks to Cascade and Atlas. for bringing the team and sticking to the task. Fun times had by all o7

Are CCRES still the single best wormhole PVP corp or has someone surpassed them in the last 6 months?

Intrepid Crossing Round 2!
Rather quiet on this thread lately! I personally am waiting on the 'big boys' to start posting some epic wh pvp BR's. (wtf is going on with W-SPACE's massive tengu fleets btw!)
In the mean time, Aquila will try and hog this board with stories of our 0.0 rompages.
So last night after a few crappy chains we find a 0.0 hole about 10 jumps away from Intrepid Crossing’s main constellation and we simply can’t help ourselves. We ship into our de-facto nano drake fleet while I scout with the cynabal.
The 10 jumps through tenal are really uneventful, so we make best speed (fucking DFR turned all of the north to a damn ghost town!)
Once in Cobalt Edge, every system is 10+ in local and we can smell an epic fight brewing! We dick about going up and down their constellation while waiting for them to form something up.
We managed to nab a DD, and later scatter a 5 man fleet, while fatyn died to a gate camp on his way to meet up with us.
Getting a little bored, we start heading back to Tenal, where Intrepid Crossing had finally formed a 40 man strong fleet blocking our path home. After waiting a little bit for them to jump into us, they send about 20 of theirs over the gate. (Do not know why they never fully committed their entire force)
With the help of combat probes, their fleet would warp on top of us, we would burn, kill a few things, they would bounce to a 400km gate safe and repeat. This cycle happened about four times.
After a few failed attempts on their side to get facemelt, we decided it best to get out of this busy pipe and move next door.
Jumping through the gate we find a broadsword, wolf and keres waiting, we engage and burn. The gang behind us comes through the gate and local jumps from 8 to 65! Unfortunately Toaiseach gets caught in the crossfire while the rest of us burn.
Being a cocky as we are, we stay on field for as long as possible killing tackle. Scrolling through my gigantic overview, we see they have two scimis, so we probably should GTFO
Unfortunately, we never got to try round 3, as after pulling a log-off-ski RL got in the way of us forming up an hour later
P.S We lost that 2nd drake cause of hurp-durp getting combated at a safe.
Can't wait until we open into cobalt edge again! If you guys are ever nearby, you should hit up RGU1-T. Intrepid Crossing may be shit, but they will bring the fight! Anyways, join 'Aquila Public' if you have any questions!
P.P.S can anyone PM me and help me with getting my damn avatar and corp description to work on this new forum

Nice BR from Aquila!
I would say they are more of a PVE corp now.

I think they always were. I had an alt in there many moons ago, joined looking for PvP since that is what they advertised. There was no PvP to be had there.

Seems either a mod didn't know that, or is looking out for them. Either remove ChaeDoc II's post or leave all the mocking.
July 11 2011, 07:00:49 PM
Chaedoc's post was a pretty obvious (and mildly amusing) troll to anyone who lives in wspace, but maybe not so much to others :P
On another note: Sitting on a hole with a few other BS and 1x carrier and having 14 hostile caps and 12-15(ish) subcaps land on you can be a bit interesting. An AAR from Aharm's latest invasion should be along sometime in the next few days.
July 11 2011, 07:32:57 PM
am definitely jealous. it's been a long time since i've seen a gang bigger than a couple guys without gallente or minmatar recons (fucking curse goddamn you are not as fun as the north was! holding out with high hopes for provi though.)

July 11 2011, 08:14:26 PM
Ye it sucks we couldn't stay longer killing more shit. During the fight i was talking plenty of screenshot in anticipation of writing a cool BR on failheap, couldn't let them go to waste now could i?

He actually got podded, flew back from jita and came straight back to us in about 15mins while we were still dicking about the constellation waiting for IRC to form up.
*EDIT* also 3 drakes n cynabal dps vs 2 scimi n 60 dudes is kinda lol,, maybe seperate them at planets or sumthing is in the realm of possibilty, but they were on the ball with warps and their fc was probably yelling at everyone to stick in a ball and not LEERROY into us

well ofc you shouldn't be waisting your missiles trying to shoot through scimi reps. but 60 dudes without much tackle and dps at range just means 60 chances at derp, which is virtually guaranteed derp. but yeah, 60 is a bit much to keep track of. if i were you i'd re-arrange your ui a bit to allow for a longer overview.
i see what you mean about having a good chain. i suppose if you have something leading to a market hub and to 0.0 you are actually better off than most logistically. n1.
July 12 2011, 11:01:31 PM
I'm alright with blobbing out good gangs (what are you gonna do when you can't fight a proper gang properly), but yeah I've long ago found out that IRC likes to overstretch this. The good thing is their gangs are usually so retarded that they never even manage to point you even in suicide inties.
Then I usually cry a lot because my gangs are too small to break RRs.

C5 holes seem very dead lately, for the last couple of weeks we have not had any population in our statics and their connecting chains.( in the rare occasion that there was a population they were in active).
Is C5 just desolate or am I just unlucky ?
July 13 2011, 10:26:16 PM
I hear C6 pulsars are nice this time of year.

All the c5's I've found have been dead or inactive as well. Has there really been an exodus to 6's?

I don't feel that way, there is the summer time inactivity which is what you might be sensing. I find about 1/2 of c5's to be occupied, tho any actives online might be 1/10th of all the occupied holes we find.
July 14 2011, 12:47:02 PM
P. cool to see Aquila still kicking Nice BR.
