They were there. We knew they were there. We boxed them in. They died.
Also, that link is missing losses. Here's a few more. http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=12399769
I came on after the fact, but from what I gather they put a cyno alt in PC9, one in t22, waited until the fleet was in warp home after a roam and straddled each side of the gate with about 40 ships (+ carrier support). Our FC had a choice...waited for one side to aggress and took their chances with trying to get out of the bubble on the other side.
I leave the br to LM. I arrived late to the fleet.
A suggestion--when taking out big fleets, put eyes in Vestouve. They had 52 in Vestouve about 30 minutes before that went down, a mix of Psychotic Tendencies and RnK. I was just F5ing the killboards to see what fly they bridged the sledgehammer onto.
If you want to speak of ganks, though, we watched the 'Nostradamus' versus 'One Track Mind' customs offices battles for a while but finally felt bad interfering. We discussed with interest whether someone else would gank them and I note a battleship blob from Rote Kapelle landing on their heads: http://www.rotekapelle.com/killboard...d&kll_id=65729 When the cat's away, the Vindis come out to play
Moral of the story: less bitter paranoia, less one letter (!) posts (in Brent's case); more relevance.
As to my one character post: I posted a single character because anything more than that would have been a shit post about how...I don't like what you did there. Trying to respect Grarr as he's actually a p chill m8r.
Heh. So I'm otherwise engaged with other things when cass grabs me and says i need to run the start of his thrasher op. I log in and don't check anything(think clone) and grab some people and we form up on a titan because we don't have time to roam down to s-u before they would kill our poco.
I get people on the titan and cass has some computer shitting the bed issue. We finally get a cyno and we bridge in our mighty thrasher fleet(plus two moros and a rorqual in case we end up killing our own poco so we stop getting mails). Their cane fleet immediately warps off of the poco and to the station we cyno'd in on, only to dock when they land(I think we killed one ship). We warp to the poco and after ben takes a detour to go kill some belt rats, we get started on killing it. Both moros land and siege and we start chunking the thing.
Bacch announces that their fleet is back on scan at the station, then he loses them. We get their cane fleet on scan at the poco and cass gets ready to call targets. One of our genius dictors decides to bubble up our caps to make sure thrashers keep tackle on canes???? Cass screams and then starts calling targets until he's killed soon after. We get pretty much wiped and lose a few expensive clones(I lose a LG snake set cass bought me a month or two after i joined Stim). At this point we have two sieged moros and a rorqual tackled in their home system. It was decided that there was no reason to lose caps here, so we let them kill as much as they could(we knew they would leave if we brought more caps in) and then jumped in some carriers. They took off and we decided that we might as well rep the poco since we had the carriers there already.
That's about it.
Sounds like a fun (if expensive) evening...Though I do have a question.....
That is on their KB and not yours....None of your people are on it....is that a *SECOND* POCO you didn't defend, or are they faking the mail or something?
I just added it to our killboard, it appears the API has issues pulling poco mails.
YAY! Flying Dangerous finally came and fought us and it was a Great fight! Thanks guys was fun =]
Quoted from Lex because today I'm too sick and tired to write one also. ._.
So there we were: derping around in 97X, bubble camping. It's not something we do often, but it does happen when boredom strikes and nobody feels like roaming around 30 hours to find everything running away from you. So we anchor a few drag bubbles in 97X and get a hictor with us on-gate. We kill some stuff, including an Apocalypse Navy Issue that we ganked before we even decided that we were actually gonna start camping. Several Flying Dangerous ships came through and subsequently died; first a full warp-stab fit Hurricane, then an Ares, and finally a Rifter.
After gently trolling a FIGL cloaky-rifter that was watching us, we had our eyes on Y9G station report some shield BC's and logi undocking and warping to their POS. They were feeling frisky enough for a fight, and so were we, but we weren't really comp'd for an actual fight (I certainly didn't want to engage with my bastardized PvE Legion that I threw a point on). At the same time, we didn't want to scare them off, so we opted largely for battlecruisers, which is what they mostly had, but we skipped out on logi; again, not wanting to scare them off. We rushed off home and reshipped as quickly as we could and split the fleet up slightly on the way back to Y9G hoping to bait them a little. They engaged Justin's legion on the 97X gate in Y9G as the rest of the fleet was gradually piling in from Conomette and warping in, and the fight began.
We quickly deployed ECM drones and got jams on at least one of their basilisks, and their other basi and scimmy were unable to keep up the other ships as we gradually broke through their reps and forced their logi to jump gate, as they failed to pull range. Same deal with their blackbird, it stayed near the gate the entire time. A few frigs for tackle and ECM landed on the field to provide support but were insta-popped as targets of opportunity between locks. A few of their members died, reshipped, and came back to fight, but were again killed.
In the end, we lost three hurricanes and Daniel's cynabal, and killed most of their fleet, despite them having logi/ECM. We held and looted the field, and then killed a silly derp Omen who jumped right into us, despite knowing we were on the other side of the gate. Major props to FIGL for bringing the gudfite and stretching their legs outside that station of theirs.
Oh, and then Leadface derped around with a drake shortly afterwards, got tackled and died, but managed to take down a Tornado, so *effeciency!* was preserved.
tl;dr, gudfite, we held the field/looted.

Saw Rote AHAC fleet leave TXW with 6 or 7 guardians (for hating logi so much, you sure did have a lot) something big go down? I'm bitin' my nails waiting for a riveting battle report.
We had less than half of seven. Not sure if your scanner is working properly.
EDIT: Battle report: We shot our own POCOs because the groups that RFed them didn't do us the courtesy of bringing a fight. We then killed someone else's and RFed another I believe while we were bored. Killed an oblivious Loki and a half-fit Daredevil, op success.
