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.
Not really sure how blueing up "randomly" (seems to happen pretty often even post-AAA?) with other monster WH corps encourages fighting tbh. I heard that the victims were (are?) self destructing caps and I'm not remotely surprised.

aharm+nhb+pizza+frozen arctic start invasion on TPT c6 system with about 20 caps (15-16 dreads with 3-4 carriers) and minimum 50-60 man fleet of supports (was see about 15 guardians)
day early some anonymous guy says to TPT about eviction and we thinking its a planned by aharm
russian community never showed more than 140 man fleet who were on a joint operation against the Aquil system.
where aharms saw a group of 200 people?
we do not know.
i know TPT guys, they dont kill sleepers everyday and they search some pvp always - @wh @nullsec and @lowsec
why no one came to help?
because holes are camped, every ship what came out from posfield was under heavy fire with many logistics
and no one knew how to deal with 20 caps at ONE hole
can you imagine how to assemble 50 people from different alliances with different TZ?
and how about 100 or 150?
its so f***** difficult
poses are killed
custom office too
many ships of TPT was sd's
about invasion at PO2 system: there were about 80 man fleet with 9 dreads against aharms
thats all i know
i think the findings will make themselves
sorry about my bad english and fly safe 0/

Why would you even want to fight a 200 Tengu blob
The last time we hit a small power of two system we had 144 sub caps come in plus 16 cap s (as well as the ships in system which was 4 caps at least), these were only the guys that i saw in that system who i managed to add to contacts so could well have beenmore i missed over that weekend. I probably still have all these contact on one of my characters so could list them if you really wanted.
it simply wouldnt have been at the one wh as most the people who came in last time just collasped in from there home system in to us, which even with us being on the ball this time would have been very hard for us to stop.and no one knew how to deal with 20 caps at ONE hole
Problem is people assume certain stuff will happen.
150 peopel hit aquila others come defend, nato is born and dies 4 or 5 days later once aquila is saved and a hostile system is hit straight after, everyone is rest at this point.
We hit power of two on our own (4 dreads 12 sub caps) russians assume its a nato op (which it isnt) so all come to help. we just dont have the numbers to fight that force and power of two is saved.
We mount a op to hit true power team, but we now assume same group will come help save these people so we plan for it and bring numbers that could fight the same fleet we saw in the power of two system.
One thing i dont really like (and think its shared by alot of others) is its not a nato v russians, nato literally was only together for a few days then hasnt been around since, i'm not sure what you would call the form up of everyone against aaa (WH coalition i guess) but that basically only lasted for a few days and everyone was reset. There have been a few smaller team ups i know exhale stardige teamed up recently, we teamed up with w space and starbridge a couple weeks ago to help defend a system and kill a small tower (which was cool never been on same side as a tengu fleet like that before) then reset the same day once we were out of that wh. Its not us v russians, these guys got hit as we consider them farmers.
Yep the fleet does look pretty over kill for tpt, but as said we expected much bigger forces chain collasping in.
We attually had a fair few other groups ask to come and help but we said no,

i and many others understand your point
you want a big fight
maybe it would be some EPIC WH War
but i have one questions: are you really waiting 200 tengus blob?
you should know how difficult to bring these fleets at wormholes
i think its a aqil fiction
its amazing, guys
I swear to god the WH thread is the most interesting politics thread in this subforum
Also lolNato vs Russians, you guys have the coolest team names.
Yeah, to reiterate the background a bit - as corb mentioned, the last time we hit a very small system associated with these guys in feb with an extremely reasonable force (maybe a couple dozen pilots across EU/US TZs, 3-5 caps?, all AHARM), they called in a hundred+ subcaps and another dozen capitals from most of the russian-speaking wspace alliances and a few nullsec guys as well. Considering that and the fair number of assets they had in system already, we didn't really hold back on deployment.
Because can't they alpha most sub-BS/sub-caps? I've seen <100 shitfit drakes alpha a decent fit Maelstrom. Thus it becomes a terrible russian roulette lack of skill whether you die or not? Or do pimped, ganglinked T3s & logis do ok?
just tank kinetic if you know thats what theyre flying.
"But the vast majority of this forum is European and/or highly urbanized and quite liberal in their firearms views. Take this discussion to ih8mud.com (Toyota Land Cruiser forum) or even knifeforums.com and you'd see the opposite."
Proper buffer fleet ships (abaddons, rokhs, t3s, commandships) will shrug off the "alpha" and keep on trucking without issue, especially when faction+ fit under bonuses, which is much more common in w-space as you don't have to worry about facing off vs 400+ blobs, which is where things can start to alpha you regardless of your fitting.
We are talking about 200 tengu volleys here. That really won't alpha subcaps? Even with a 2k volley each that's 400k ehp before resists. A 6 launcher, 3BCU T2 fits seems to do nearer 2.2k for kinetic with faction ammo. I would have thought that was sufficient.

400k ehp before resists. Even if, going into a fight with an army of Tengu's, the ship they're shooting at only has 80 percent kin resist(which is retardedly low if you're going to fight a massive tengu blob), that translates into something like 80k ehp worth of actual damage, then its further mitigated by sig radius and velocity, and then again by actual co-ordination of the pilots firing (good luck getting a 200 man tengu blob to fire at the exact same time, or even for all of them to shoot the same guy).
Thats going to translate into a not exactly terrifying number. I'd reckon something like 50k ehp on smaller ships, and 70k or so on battleships.
I can't think of a battleship that would be alpha'd by 70k ehp worth of damage(excepting squishy snipe fits or weird active tanks), and I can't think of any t3 that would be alpha'd by 50k... well, except some loki fits and such.
A 200 man tengu blob is two things. Vulnerable because they do almost entirely kinetic damage, and fun to shoot at because they have nice huge sigs if they're buffer fit.

Especially fun if you've took the time to ensure you would have 840K volley every 5 seconds.
Yeah we did the maths before hand and figured we could survive it easy especially as every sub cap was intentionally overtanked
200 doing kinetic is 150 doing any other type And I assumed they could manage one or two painters & webs in their fleet.
But ok, fair enough, seems I wasn't factoring in resists correctly. Continue to mock HM users.
A giant blob of high sig radius tengus are also hilariously vulnerable to dreads, who have the ability to tank them for plenty of time...
Or have I missed something?
But yes, damps and such would affect it even more.
