Local looked like something out of goonspace

short BR on AQUILA's 2nd serious armor fleet fight while I suck gas
they open into us while they were jewing, we didn't understand what happened but we still try to jump on their bearing fleet, they finished by the time we form up and reshipped into pvp boats.
fight broke out on their static
gf was exchanged, respect from all AQUILA members to Team Pizza for bringing a fight and not self destructing

Heh, we've had a prober in their hole for a long time hoping for fights after an initial skirmish with them some months ago.

When a 4th corpmated logged in we went back but they didn't seem to want to engage anymore

Props for trying. Only way that loss matters for you long term is if you let it get you down and let it make you timid in the future.

Tremendous tip of the hat to the Team Pizza capital pilots for their decision not to SD despite being the only ships left on field.
Looking forward to our next encounter

your very biased censorship makes sense now
grarr edit: Let me make it perfectly fucking clear here, I'm not going to tolerate this shit, if it is continued (by anyone, I don't care what color or flag you fly) I am going to go out of my way to make your posting experience on this board one fucking hell you wish you'd never gotten into. What the fuck does a corporation I spent time in a year and one quarter ago (who haven't been affiliated with Guillotine Therapy or Rooks & Kings for FAR longer, FYI) matter to what shitposts I want to delete? 'u scurrred?' is not content, it's terrible posting aimed at aggravating people and it's not going to stand. FROM ANYONE. If you want to taunt people or be smug as shit about something, do it through a biased battle report that brings content to this forum.

No this has really just jump started everyone's desire to get better. Last couple days all we have been doing is figuring out what we did wrong and how to win that fight next time. If anything, this has been a really good thing for us, giving us some obvious areas to work on.

in other news, let's see how -A- is doing...
The video starts as soon as we bumped the thanny out. He and his friend were playing pos shield games, and sooner or later they were bound to mess up.
Will update as soon as stuff happens.
*edit* This morning they guys & girls managed to catch another one: Rev kill
Seems like he suicided the rev to the fleet so he could get a bubble down and save another cap.
**edit 2** POS Takedown

This Sunday appears to be a good day for w-space, and it's not even primetime
the above rev kill (n1)
http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=13139990 widot capital losses, 6 archons + moros
http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=13142589 our own humblestest of contributions, 5 caps + 3 SDs
http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=13142776 aquila killing a couple carriers (1 SD, sounds like)
plus a few more single capital ganks, including a holeclosing moros fit from wi. and some others
April 22 2012, 01:16:54 PM
No WI. cap ship seems to be less than 4bil, with 8.5 and 12bil carriers in there. Yet they die to some T2 shield fitted Bhaals. Then I see those carrier mids & rigs. And they all had 1 local rep but no triage.

Long winded BR incoming. I would've posted it earlier, but everyone has been a bit busy kicking -A- out of w-space.
I had a go at FCing again, and the result just happened to be the best fight in EVE I've ever had.
I logged on to hear that we were engaging a large fleet in our static. I immediately came in and started shooting alongside my corp mates, but their numbers were steadily growing. They had about 20 people, with 3 Logi and a crapton of ECM. We managed to pop a Falcon at the start of the battle, but it soon became apparent that their reps were holding, and ours were failing.
We jumped back into our home, and while we waited out our timers, we got a 3rd Guardian and started fitting remote ECCM on some of our AHACs. They seemed to think the battle was over, but we weren't just gonna let them disengage so easily. I stepped up as FC and ordered our fleet to jump in as soon as we could.
Our numbers were quite even, 20 vs 20; however, they now had 2 Archons on grid, and we had no neuts. We tried to alpha through some of their squishier ships, but since the system was a Cataclysmic we weren't making any headway.
We decided to have one of our Legion pilots to jump home and bring back a Bhaalgorn. He did so, but we realized that more was needed than just the Bhaalgorn. Their DPS and ECM were putting a heavy toll on our Logi, and the Bhaalgorn pilot would be on timer so he wouldn't be able to jump back if our Logi reps couldn't keep up. We had an Archon on standby, but the hole would collapse if we brought it through.
We decided to bring our Archon in anyways. The hole collapsed behind us and we set to work on neuting out one of their Archons. They brought in their own Bhaalgorn, but he was immediately silenced by our ECM Tengus. It seemed like a stalemate… but then their 2nd Archon pilot warped out…. and came back in a Rev.
They immediately focused all DPS on our Archon. There were a few tense moments, but with our Damnation boosts he was able to withstand their DPS.
It seemed like ages later, but finally our Bhaalgorn pilot capped out their Archon. He had come out of triage at this point and was receiving reps from their Logi, so we primaried their Logi. 2 of them popped quickly one after the other, and at this point they realized the battle was over. Before we could spread points, much of their fleet warped out--including their Bhaalgorn and some other shiny ships.
We finished off the remaining ships, including their Archon and Rev.
All in all, probably the longest, closest, and most tense battle I've ever been in. And definitely the most fun.
The BR just doesn't do the fight justice: http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=13032540
W-space best space.

sound like good fun, but that's gay with 4 ecm boats. remind me of adhoc
April 24 2012, 10:29:32 PM
Meh whatever works, we just had a fight in Pulsar with armor fleet against carrier subcaps supported by 4 falcons and a scorp if the residents hadn't brought as much ECM to the field as they did we would have killed them all. props to em.

I agree, we're not talking about a dishonoured 1v1 or bubble camping with falcon alt; you should compose your fleet of whatever you think has the best chance of beating the opposition. We don't use much ECM because other ewar (MORE BHAALGORN) tends to work better in most cases, not due to some misguided sense of e-honour.
Anyways back on topic, good job Red Circle and nice BR! I know I'm too much of a pussy to step up and FC a fleet worth several tens of billion isk :P
April 24 2012, 11:42:19 PM
ECM isn't so gay, it's only when you bring enough falcon so that each enemy ship has 2 ecm permarun on their ass
to that point that noone wants to fight
April 25 2012, 06:25:26 AM
Well there's the thing. what's enough??, when you don't necesarily even know the enemy fleet comp you bring as many as you have, as your guy just specifically stated he would do with Bhaalgorns (how many bhaalgorns can you bring before it's "gay).
Originally Posted by Apolyon

It just leads on to arguments like "you jumped us with equal numbers and then decided to escalate it until you had near double our numbers you have no e-honour!!!" and other such rubbish
people will bring what works every time and try to ensure victory. lucklily there are plenty of counters for everything =) and Falcons and Blackbirds vanish in puffs of smoke to plenty of things :P
Nice BR red inc see you've had a proper wh battle =).
