    Rote seems to have had a pretty solid pantsoff-beersopen roam last night.

    Kinda jealous.

    We actually had something like 10 fleets in space yesterday over the period of 15ish hours. Everyone did their little thing, and overall it was a hell of a thing.

    FD actually fought. The BDEAL fight was an arranged 12 on 12. Overall, I WANT to complain about Syndicate, insofar as that our near-targets have largely dissappeared (CR is empty because of the anomoly nerf (*), Fountain is dead because everyone is kicking around Deklein), but in space, there is still a lot of activity, especially for smaller groups. My fleets are a little too big for the region unfortunately(**), so I'm thinking about starting to comp more frigates.

    ANYWAYS, looks like Agony is thinking of moving back, which should mean more small gang action for everyone in that 10-15 band.

    OH, speaking of that, This fight was one of the most fun fights I've had in forever (14v14). KB looks more lopsided than it was because of veto losses. I'll not bother crossposting the internal AAR on it as it's not funny/whitty/whatev, but damn, bless Gentlmens Agreement for coming out to fight us (even if we did have to jump into your BB@range gayness).



    (*) Curse that nerf. Totally jacked activity in the shitty sov regions close to Syndicate.
    (**) ARISE and RnK still pushing 40+ on any given EUTZ though, so I'm just speaking for what _I_ want in terms of small gang pvp. I've been getting slightly less in gang lately, so have been happy.

    Play the game you love, m8888.

    EDIT MOAR:

    Actually, we had eyes on your titan for the few hours you were dicking around on Sunday, and when I saw the neutral blowup in P-NUP, I totally raced a bomber over there for some elitepvpsmallgang bnc, by which I mean launching a bomb while you curbstomped the shortbus. It was a great success whereby I killed a pod.

    Mostly, you should just embrace it. EUTZ syndicate is very different than USTZ syndicate, so it's hard for outsiders to kinda form a picture in their mind about how things work. I think Its totally cool to hang in lowsec and bridge baddon fleets around- it's not like RnK is BAD. They are patient, and effective. VERY effective.

    But you'll always catch flack from the people who see 10 guardians as a crutch. v0v. Doesn't mean I have EVER ran a fleet that has the numbers/firepower to crack the smallest RR gangs you guys fly. Just own it.

    Ahahaha, this fuckin guy.

    At least Lord M. acknowledges whats going on.

    RnK plays EvE in a way that is utterly distasteful to more than a few of us who live here in Syndicate. Effective? Sure it is. But saps every bit of what might have been an enjoyable fight.

    v0v We all play for our own version of end game pvp. R&K's happens to be fuck off fleet to those of us who can't match...scratch that, have double their numbers to take care of their guardians/archons. It's not like they don't up-engage, because they do. We just don't see much of that in syndicate because they have to go elsewhere to find those fights. I just don't feel that anyone in syndicate can take on their EUTZ. They don't bother us much during NATZ(USTZ has been replaced with NATZ because lebeo is awesome). Get a gank off on one of them and they'll beg you to come fight on a station in vestouve, to which we never oblige. It's not that we don't want to fight, its just usually a no win situation for us.

    Rooks and Kings are ridiculously good at what they do. They get a lot of respect from me for how heavily they up-engage and come out ahead. That being said, a 20 man R&K fleet is specifically designed to take on 50+ people and win. Their fleets are deliberately set up in such a fashion that you need 3x the numbers in order to fight them, and it grows tiresome being smacked when our 20 runs from your 20 when you have double (or more) the number of logistics and we know full well that you have triage on standby.

    God bless my corpmates for papering over my bitterfailposts with goodposts, even if the failpost I was failreplying to chose to edit~.

    BPLAN had a 25ish man shield BC/basi fleet out last night, I suspect RFing tower(s?) in UNAF's pocket (they still alive?).

    We got lucky and actually got into space with about 10 dps ships, and 10 support (2 scimi's + too much tackle), and I was infinitely pleased to bump into them going home.

    Since it was a no-brainer fight for them, we set up on the X-M gate in K5 and told them where we were. They jumped into FD. Hrmm...

    Well, OK, we advanced to FD- gate, combat ranges, and let their eyes in system get a good look at our fleet. Scout tells me they hit station. Hrmm....

    So I jump in and start smacking like a retard, to try to see the score, and it is looking like they really really really don't want to down engage us with a goodfight bc fleet. OK, last chance. I jump in fleet, throw us all at zero on the gate, and bubble up, presenting like a sheep in heat.

    FFFFFFF.

    BPLAN: Welcome to my Raven Fed wall of shame.

    Fine roam regardless. And SOMETHING of a plug for Syndicate- with all those stations, you really don't need to take fights you don't want to, and who knows, maybe someday they'll come eat at the big boy table.

    (I probably need to edit an open apology to garr in my sig)

    EDIT UPDATE: Flying Dangerously has actually been engaging me a bit when I'm not in a fuckoffblob, so +1 FIGL (or whatev).

    Not to mention Self DestructDOT. We got a fight out of them for which they get mad props, our Pest dropped his pants (deliberately) on the other side of the gate from our fleet and they bubbled with a HIC so we let out our war whoops and piled through. GF~s were had in local. In the words of our friend Gny. Hartman



    SDDOT's got guts, and guts is enough. Anyone know if they plan to live here full time?

    I think what he's getting at is Syndicate has (for as long as I've been around) always been a kind of sanctuary and proving grounds for small subcap gangs to crash into other small subcap gangs. When you steamroll everything with overwhelming force-multiplier support (like capitals and/or logi and/or ECM) in every engagement, it kind of breaks that unspoken code of conduct most Syndicate residents moved here for in the first place. Nobody in their right mind moves to this shitsec region for the purpose of building a space empire - my Syndicate is FIGHT!

    Nobody, RnK included, has to play by some poofy e-bushido rules. It's EVE, after all. They understand that you should use every tactical advantage at your disposal, play to win, take the other guy's modules and shatter his morale. RnK appear to be a fine-tuned motherfucking machine when it comes to this style of play. Also, one could argue that all you need to do is tailor a fleet to counter Guardians and Amarr BS while you kill the triage carrier(s). Basically fight force multipliers with your own force multipliers. Totally in the spirit of EVE. Not so much in the 'spirit' of Syndicate, though, as dumb as that might sound to non-residents.

    I've personally grown attached to our little subcap sanctuary, where a carrier on grid (away from the safety of the undock or having literally crawled up inside the motherly embrace of the station geometry jesuschrist) is an actual for honest and for true event. I'd be kinda miffed if our gangs got a 10xGuardian and triage-supported unbreakable pimpfleet bridged into us every time we set out for a roam or someshit. Like.

    But, and.

    idk lol v0v

    some vanguard or ishuk-rata dude did this down in suba once, on one of those caldari stations like jita 4-4 with the huge-ass undock. it was ridiculous.

    also trying to counter R&K with ecm with all amarr jammers or something would still need like twice as many people as they have just to have the dps and jams to be able to kill things, and then you'd still have to contend with multiple triage carriers if you didn't have the dps to kill something inside a single triage cycle.

    Ares Protectiva Dominix fleet got cough between Rook&King (3KNK) and Mayhem (8V) this evening and got completely destroy. We decided to engage Mayhem with our 2x brutix against their 13-15 BS on the 3KNK gate in 8V.

    We got some pressure at first when some member got a lag spike were we lose 2 brutix but in the same time our first primary was 75% armor when he jump out.After that Our secondary was 75% armor and our remote chain were enough to resist their volley when Mayhem open a cyno and a Archon jump in starting remoting is fleet member. Aftler a few minute we stop engaging and our FC give the order to jump out in 3KNK. At the same moment our scout in 3KNK announce a R&K fleet on 8V gate in 3KNK, after that well it's over half the fleet is still in 8V and the other half is everywhere around the gate in 3KNK, too far to help each other. R&K take us 1 by 1 and mayhem do the same on their side. 1/5 of our ship made it back at our HQ, i wasn't one of them... Noob mistake make me warp out a little bit too early when i saw R&K jump out.

    After spending a week in Y9G having little station schirmishes with Raven Fed,
    LOTD returned home to their pocked, then did a mass reset.

    Hopefully this will lead to a more target rich enviroment.
