    What I'm hearing from my m8 in AAA, they were killing the xxdeath titan, and about 30s after it died, incame the supercarrier fleet too late to save it. Unfortunately for the SC fleet, all the bubblers and ppl were already in place, and batphones were rung, with everyone temp blueing up to go gank some supercaps. The rest is on the killboards..

    My M8 in AAA also claims that several supers self d'd.

    Tbh I wanna know who the fuck was FCing that, for better words "clusterfuck" of an op. You never ever drop supercarriers without titans, you're just asking to get raped in the face like what happened. Supercarriers have always been unable to do piss all to subcaps who know what theyre doing; you need titans to rape subcaps.

    My guess is an inexperienced cap/supercap FC made the call to drop supercarriers as a reflexive "oh shit RR the dying titan" move, without actually thinking through "how do we get them off the field when we're done?"

    We don't have an entire coalition of retards who run at the first cyno(the old NC) to fight anymore, those that are left will often fight, and have at least a passing idea of how vulnerable supercarriers are.

    What supercap FCs known for whelping just joined PL I wonder? Oh and it would seem NCdawt got batphoned....hmmm. *ponyshrug*

    First thing: nobody self destructed. One of the NC. supers started his sequence but then stopped shortly after. Anybody self destructing a super would be kicked out of PL pretty fast.

    We jumped in supercarriers and carriers too late to save the XiX titan that was tackled trying to shoot a pos in Etherium. NC. also brought in their supers. We aligned out, drove off a few dictors with the carriers, warped to a safespot and jumped out. Easy peasy.

    Unfortunately a NC. Aeon crashed while in warp and was probed down and caught by AAA. We capped back up at the mid, then jumped back in to save it. By this point hostile numbers had risen significantly so they were able to bring down some poorly tanked carriers through our reps.

    For the next hour or so we worked to extract our ships. AAA had light dps due to their long range tier 3 fleet, and only had light dictors and some lachs as tackle. We cleared the tackle off the remaining carriers, and started burning in bombers to clear bubbles from the supercarriers. Goons were inbound with a large fleet including hictors so we knew it was a race against time. We eventually got the bubbles cleared for a split second and called for the mass jumpout, getting most of the supers out. The CFC fleet arrived shortly thereafter, bringing a lot of extra dps and hictors. We continued bombing to try and get and opening, but with no more success. One NC. Aeon wandered into a pocket grid by accident and managed to jump out (that's about as lucky as you can get) but the rest went down slowly.

    Test were awesome as always and managed to piss off AAA while also killing our supers.

    End result is two PL and four NC. supercarriers dead, as well as the XiX titan and assorted carriers/dreads and subcaps.

    It was a good job by the AAA dictors who held us down for almost two hours until the cavalry arrived. Elise was the FC for PL but nobody in PL has anything to be ashamed about for the fight, just the occasional side effect of going dangerzone so often.

    Rgr, nice to see both sides of the story(I just had the AAA viewpoint on it).

    In all honesty tho, why would you drop supercarriers/carriers only? Relying on purely bombers(EDIT - clarfiy - stealthbombers, not FBs) seems like a shit idea for removing tackle. Additionally, why not just batphone Raiden, jump titans in, and rape face?

    We woulda been reading about u guys raping their fleet and/or an epic super/cap battle (as the involved parties would have to drop supercaps or a shitton of dreads to be able to do anything to massed titans).

    Dropping in only SCs just seems generally odd; only reason to do that is for dropping SBUs/other random sov structures where you know there's no opposition(if there is you roll subcap fleet/titans)

    When we were going in initially we were in a rush and didn't have time to form anything else. NCdot did being in a Rokh fleet, but they could get maybe 70 people or so against the 200+ that had formed against us by then. A few hundred tier 3 BCs do a pretty good job of removing sub caps from the field.

    The bombers were for removing bubbles, not the tackle. The hostile dictors were doing a good job of getting in and out, and anything capable of easily killing them would get quickly sniped by the BCs.

    Raiden has almost no coverage in that timezone, not enough to make a difference at short notice.

    The tank on the XxDeath titian was pretty "pro", we were surprised at how fast it melted.

    Interesting developement.

    -A- and friends have been making a push for C-J again this weekend, and although PL have been around, they haven't really enganged in any meaningful way (bombers only sofar). Apparently RA have just finished a meeting and they are pulling out to Delve. We don't expect any major opposition in C-J in the next 2 days. I can't say I expected this development myself, but I am certainly looking forward to some of the fire-sales that pop up. Once RA is gone, it will be interesting to see what happens on the Drone regions front.

    AAA is taking their sov taking very seriously. Every pilot has been randomly assigned a system of their own to take from a list.

    http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=12656960

    This pilot just succeeded in taking his. :P

    That system is right next to the current -A- staging system. Some people just don't like ship spinning I guess. Final timer for C-J today, will be interesting.

    Confirming this, hopefully GF's will happen, but with the amount of supers rumored to be logged of in that system (150+ for PL/NC. alone) unless -A-/ROL/SOLAR bring everything we've got it could be epic blueballs. I'm hoping for a huge brawl with a number of super dying.

    I'm excited to say the least, come what may.

    23:00 Eve time, 25 minutes to go. C-J local 1100, 95% blue no lag or TD ATM. Intel report PL and Goons (only 70ish) inbound, suspect we may see some TEST too. No Supers in system ......yet.

    C-J has fallen \0/

    Was a good fight, local topped out at about 2200, TD hit 15% and CCP visited us. PL dropped 120 RR carriers which we had a hard time breaking through (only 1 died), and in the end -A- and allies dropped Supercarriers to finish the job. Goons also brought a fleet that was bombed then slaughtered but I missed that due to reshipping.

    PL suprisingly did not bring supers in. Shadoo is on -A- TS atm discussing the fight, props to PL for bringing it. Tired atm, hopefully someone will write a decent BR, but I may try to write something tomorrow.

    For people who don't read Kugu I'm gonna repost Shadoo's battlereport here in full below.

    We had a great time trying out our new fleet concept. With thousands of sentries under his personal control we could hear Elise having little joygasms each time he reported a hostile tengu getting volleyed. Team South did a great job alarmclocking and bringing lots of people in solid fleet comps, and they deserve to be proud of taking C-J.
    It was fun to fly alongside our old bropack brothers in the CFC for one night as well.
    I also wish RA the best of luck in Delve. They were already fully evacced and didn't even try to form up for this C-J timer but they were nice enough to time the station and give NC. docking rights so we could have our brawl.

    I think everyone knows RA has decided try a new start in EVE and relocate -- we wish them well and personally I hope they do well because EVE would be a poorer place without them ingame. Having already evaced their corporate, personal and supercapital assets from their once busy home system of C-J6 -- the outlook for tonight's final outpost cycle looked rather dull and dim. RA had no reason to defend the timer, and they had not asked for anyone else to do so either -- nor had they called a CTA.

    So -- we got together with Vince to plan a one FINAL HURRAH for this system so rich in EVE's history. When I was but a noobie flying assault frigs in illustrious KOS alliance -- I had assaulted C-J6 with LV/V/CHIMP/KOS/etc -- and lost. So it didn't go down well to leave the system fall without an epic battle.

    Luckily Vince agreed and we all decided tonight would be the unveiling of our new concept fleet -- called SlowCats which Manfred Sideous himself had come up with. I was somewhat sceptical -- I'm pretty sure so was Vince but hey -- fuck it, what's the worse that could happen -- we get to call Manny a Draek man once more and replace few dozen carriers. Unfortunately, -A- had read our call for capitals and were planning to call our bluff -- by sending a batsignal to every RUSRUS out there that TONIGHT would indeed be epic. Everyone was calling alarm clocks and I expected 600-700 dudes to face our ~150.

    So I caught up with Vee and asked him if he wants to 3rd party in a brawl of the month with some welpcanes or draeks. Vee eager not to pass up a firefight of course obliged and began gathering a Draek fleet to brawl madly with. Unfortunately I had not realized it was a RUSRUS holiday week apparently and the -A-/ROL staging system alone had by now 500 dudes. And they had not yet even began forming. So Mittens types up a note for more dudes with their version of C-J6 history and the reason we should all honor it with a ~Good Fight~ and suddently 450 angry goons begin making their way in towards C-J6. Ev0ke flies down with few dozen Tier3 snipers and INIT put together a carpet bombing wing.

    -A-/ROL forms Tengu fleet, fills first in 45 seconds. Forms another, fills it in 5 minutes and forms more fleets. :-o FAIL forms 90ish, OH had like 60, SOLAR forms 40ish AHACs and 80ish alpha fleet and all head in. Some 900 hostiles now in C-J6 already PL/NCDOT forms our SlowCat fleet and a bomber fleet. We top at about 160 I think with antisupport + SlowCats and 20ish bombers. Given our enemies coordination and field advantage -- all the dudes get in on a convo to coordinate with some standings set (ev0ke/init/goons/test/pl/ncdot/rdn FCs are coordinating away in a convo -- epic in itself ).

    A/ROL fleets are setup on station grid, timer ticks to 0 and they begin firing. Goons enter YPW next door and get on the C-J6 gate with SOLAR/OH/FAIL/etc getting in on the gate grid to greet them. PL undocks Manny's carrier after coordinated bomb run from init/pl which forces 1/3rd of their fleet to reposition by warping off and the fight is on with cyno up from a trimark 2, x-type hardener lg slave set carrier. Manny gets primaried by about 200 tengus on grid, and overloads -- if he dies before we materialize -- it's all over. Goons decloak and start brawling with SOLAR/etc on YPW gate with TiDi kicking off to a respectable 20% with about 1800 dudes in local.

    Our carriers materialize, load and rescue Manny in healthy armor -- and drop sentries with our control ship taking helm with Elise at seat. Yaay sets to watch field to direct our position and targets, Manny sets himself as anchor and Vince coordinates reps. We begin volleying tengu and our HICs get pushed down first since they are doing antibomber bubbles for our sentries. We save a few, but lose most -- and so A/ROL tengu fleet begins primarying Nidhoggurs. Crucially, our reps from ~130 carriers hold and we are able to save every primaried carrier. Hostiles having now lost ~20 tengus, they reposition slightly longer range and primary our anti-support T3s. Our tactic was to store any primaried support ship in a carrier before missiles hit -- but with 18% Tidi and 1800 local holding steady... yeah... not so much.

    We lose 2-3 armor lokis/legions while A/ROL continue taking Tengu losses, which they of course can very much afford to take with 300 tengus on field (literally, 300 tengus). YPW gate field according to Vee on skype call is now held by goons, thou they have taken significant losses due to scimi anchor losses and SOLAR brawling like warriors. Thus with SOLAR/OH/FAIL remainders getting on station grid -- Goons ping off a perch and get ready to commit to the station grid fight.

    Unfortunately, in TiDi just as OH Tornados come on grid -- INIT sets to bomb them and Goons war on top of them. This is little... awkward and unplanned and means while goons did not lose drakes -- they did just lose their last antibomber bubbler -- a fact which TraderJohn notices and takes advantage of sending the -A- bombers in warp with -A-/ROL tengus in fast pursuit. Unfortunately resulting bombs, bubbles and freefiring ~250 tengus make mince out of ~100 or so draek fleet. With goons warping off to regroup and combine their 2 fleets -- Team South repositions to shoot our carriers.

    A-/ROL somehow gets one of their tengu fleets pulled into a bubble right next to our carriers & support -- and promptly get bubbled to fuck and webbed by Lokis. Blapping ensues with tengus disapearing at frightering rate -- but... crurically PL/NCDot fast losing all our remaining dictors/hictors as well. Cyno opens and about ~80-100 Team South supers comes into system and aligns outpost. They know PL/NCDot has 52 titans and 87 SuperCarriers logged on and in range -- so they intend to take no risks and warp their SCs only (no titans) to a ping 280 km away and realign to get on our carriers.

    I'm talking with Vince about making call on to respond in kind or backoff with good fight had and agree we'll keep aggressing in order to see if 1) they bring titans and 2) if they come on top of our carriers or warp to range. We are outnumbered in SCs, but have the titan advantage by about 30 Ts -- so it's a close call no matter what. Of course -A-/ROL have still 800 support in system to our 170 remaining CFC, few dozen ev0ke and INIT . -A-/ROL intend to take no chances and after clearing all bubbles -- they warp their SCs to about 100km from our carriers and do NOT bring in titans.

    What that from an FC perspective essentially means is that A/ROL have now superior position, we are unable to repair our tacklers keeping them down if we choose to engage and our titans would have to use medium/long range ammo to reach them while still keeping in range of our carriers for reps. Goons are down to a single dictor, PL/NCDot has maybe 2 dictors and 3 hictors left alive with every tackle being cleared by support on field in seconds.

    So, we tip our hats off at Team South for strategy well played, deaggro and prepare to dock. We unfortunately lose one carrier that had drifted out of dock range and it dies to a TON of FBs landing on it's face before calling dock with everyone safely in station.

    And as such, the EPIC fight draws to a close with ~600 ships in total killed to ensure this historic system does not fall without explosions. A BIG thank you for Team South, CFC, Team Tech & all for keeping it interesting.

    Safe to say, now our problem is one fucking MASSIVELY SMUG Manny. :-( (oh, and -A- let us jump our carriers out of the station about 40min after without issues <3)

    (edit: about 3200 T2 sentries were lost in making of this battle report, some 50-60 tengus, 30ish BS, one carrier, and about 100 drakes + randoms)

    Was a lot of fun, even with TiDi at 10% (cycle missiles go to bathroom, get a cup of coffee, come back just in time for the next cycle), it was still playable.

    So what? shadow is pushing to evict irc, cfc is pushing into north maybe to establish a link with shadow? In the mean time, -a- breaks down the ra remaining space and knocks with solar at shadow's door.

    somewhat this makes sense. Ra moves to delve, so they are within striking distance of the west flankof southern alliance. And they basicly fear nothing from north. This will be very interesting if ra manages to actually establish into delve. What i am curious about is what will raiden + irc do, and at this point i highly doubt cfc can break that area. Also, shadow will have soon alot of trouble on the southern front.

    Raiden are currently too busy not losing their space / failcascading under the supreme pressure of the Razor assualt on Tenal, as highlighted in this stunning piece of Razor propaganda:

Our tactic was to store any primaried support ship in a carrier before missiles hit -- but with 18% Tidi and 1800 local holding steady... yeah... not so much.

    We lose 2-3 armor lokis/legions while A/ROL continue taking Tengu losses, which they of course can very much afford to take with 300 tengus on field (literally, 300 tengus). YPW gate field according to Vee on skype call is now held by goons, thou they have taken significant losses due to scimi anchor losses and SOLAR brawling like warriors. Thus with SOLAR/OH/FAIL remainders getting on station grid -- Goons ping off a perch and get ready to commit to the station grid fight.

    Unfortunately, in TiDi just as OH Tornados come on grid -- INIT sets to bomb them and Goons war on top of them. This is little... awkward and unplanned and means while goons did not lose drakes -- they did just lose their last antibomber bubbler -- a fact which TraderJohn notices and takes advantage of sending the -A- bombers in warp with -A-/ROL tengus in fast pursuit. Unfortunately resulting bombs, bubbles and freefiring ~250 tengus make mince out of ~100 or so draek fleet. With goons warping off to regroup and combine their 2 fleets -- Team South repositions to shoot our carriers.

    A-/ROL somehow gets one of their tengu fleets pulled into a bubble right next to our carriers & support -- and promptly get bubbled to fuck and webbed by Lokis. Blapping ensues with tengus disapearing at frightering rate -- but... crurically PL/NCDot fast losing all our remaining dictors/hictors as well. Cyno opens and about ~80-100 Team South supers comes into system and aligns outpost. They know PL/NCDot has 52 titans and 87 SuperCarriers logged on and in range -- so they intend to take no risks and warp their SCs only (no titans) to a ping 280 km away and realign to get on our carriers.

    I'm talking with Vince about making call on to respond in kind or backoff with good fight had and agree we'll keep aggressing in order to see if 1) they bring titans and 2) if they come on top of our carriers or warp to range. We are outnumbered in SCs, but have the titan advantage by about 30 Ts -- so it's a close call no matter what. Of course -A-/ROL have still 800 support in system to our 170 remaining CFC, few dozen ev0ke and INIT . -A-/ROL intend to take no chances and after clearing all bubbles -- they warp their SCs to about 100km from our carriers and do NOT bring in titans.

    What that from an FC perspective essentially means is that A/ROL have now superior position, we are unable to repair our tacklers keeping them down if we choose to engage and our titans would have to use medium/long range ammo to reach them while still keeping in range of our carriers for reps. Goons are down to a single dictor, PL/NCDot has maybe 2 dictors and 3 hictors left alive with every tackle being cleared by support on field in seconds.

    So, we tip our hats off at Team South for strategy well played, deaggro and prepare to dock. We unfortunately lose one carrier that had drifted out of dock range and it dies to a TON of FBs landing on it's face before calling dock with everyone safely in station.

    And as such, the EPIC fight draws to a close with ~600 ships in total killed to ensure this historic system does not fall without explosions. A BIG thank you for Team South, CFC, Team Tech & all for keeping it interesting.

    Safe to say, now our problem is one fucking MASSIVELY SMUG Manny. :-( (oh, and -A- let us jump our carriers out of the station about 40min after without issues <3)

    (edit: about 3200 T2 sentries were lost in making of this battle report, some 50-60 tengus, 30ish BS, one carrier, and about 100 drakes + randoms)
    Does Shadoo read FHC?

    I hope he does because I was one of the main FCs the first invasion of C-J that he referenced in his BR (we lost). One of the MAIN reasons we lost is that Shadoo, as one of the main guys in KOS, was responsible for towering the system when we surprise attacked it. He proceeded to die at a planet in a freighter full of towers with a 95% blue local because he wasn't on comms and was too dumb to convo me. By the time we had replaced the lost towers, RA had successfully online an extra 20 or so dickstars and the next 3 weeks of grind were therefore directly Shaddoos fault. was funny.
