The amount of smug in this thread over one battle that didn't happen is fucking unbelievable. I don't even see why you're so proud about getting blueballed by TEST, who you've proclaimed to be shit since the day this war began. Holy shit, if anything you guys should be parading "just as expected, move along" instead of shitposting about PL DIDN'T SHOW UP I SAW NO HBC SUPERS WE'RE BETTER THAN YOU LOOK AT US SQUEEEE and jerking each other off.
Its cool, we get it. You won an objective, it seems to be a relatively new thing for you guys so eat your heart out. You have a long way to go
100MN Tengus go 2-3x as fast as drakes. Even with warpins by the time drakes land and can lock the tengus will have burned 50k away from the warpin.
And with the use of unbonused webs: Drakes can kill a tengu in 1-2 volleys. If the target is within 40k he will almost always die before reps hit, but at longer range the missile flight time helps out the logis.
So there is really nothing a drakefleet can do other than catch idiots/stragglers, and try to maneuver so that the tengus run into them. When they get in close, god help the tengus (cuz -a- wont).
If you kill enough of them they stop fighting - Gen. Curtis Lemay
Fear the KKM
hey shitfucks, stop screwing up my game with your blob warfare. I'm in fountain core and @ 20% dilation factor. I'm sure you scrubs in PL, TEST, et al. are having fun as I am atm.
l2p solo pvp maybe and you will break eve less.
Lets all enjoy this while we can. Testies blue balled today, same as would we if the tides were turned. Noone is blaming you and I will also not call you dumb niggers.
We fight, sometimes we lose, sometimes we win.
Strap in and get ready, we will call again.
I hear things might be tackled?
We had Makalu's Erebus triple bubbled. Couldn't get any more bubbles on him before PL super bridged in. This fight is literally like grinding my dick against a cheese grater.
Fight in 49-U6U going on.
Local's gone from 700 to 1200, lots of deaths but wrecks are mostly yellow.
Bombs killed reinforcement fleet, and we almost caught Makalu's titan.
Fight has been ongoing for almost three hours. TiDi is brutal. Maka got his Titan out (somehow). PL brought in tons of supers and is now trying to knock out SBUs while AAA grinds through TEST and HoneyPeeps.
LEME TELL YOU STORIES ABOUT HOW MAD I AM AT MISSING YOUR FUCKING TITAN
I gotta admit, I didn't think AAA this much fight left in them. I'm impressed tonight.
Epic fight. Absolutely Fucking Epic.
Props to -A- and the SoCo. If you guys can pull those red pen ctas or whatever you call them every night, we're going to have ourselves a long-ass war. The HBC took an enormous beating in kills, you guys did work on us. Station was saved so ~lawl tactical victory~ and all that nonsense. But for real, props to you guys and I hope we have more and more fights like this.
edit: I'm super pissed about that titan. Actually mad.
Haha wow holy fuck.
Also not to be smug but my remote eccm hookbill and my remote sebo flycatcher tanked like 50 tengus whore gunning me o7o7o7
(1:18:04 AM) pleaseignore.com: Tonight you fought, and died like the Viking kings of old. It was bloody as shit, and many a Testie gave his life for the cause, but through blood, and sweat, and all of my swearing you have won this fight for now and beat back the hordes of faggots that were here for your virgin assholes.
While your assholes may not be virgin after this fight, you've earned the right to go get that dirty nasty tatoo you always wanted that says Born to Kill.
Thanks for the effort

Great fight tonight TEST. While there were Russians who stayed up in the MotherLand, the USTZ for SoCo is decent sized.
I have no idea what the deal toll was on either side so can't say who won for sure but the SBU died and timers reset though there is no IHub.
I don't think AAA is intending to grind through three regions. If 49- and a handful of other stations fall in Querious, it would provide much LoLs via a new base of operations I guess.
At zero on station, spam dock, bumped off and convo spammed by -a-.
6 ships. I literally went through 6 ships. Jesus christ. That was such a fucking amazing fight.
Meatshield fleet checking in.
I had fun, my first huge fight. My bomber survived the entire thing, all six hours of it.
EDIT: Had this lovely conversation after some guy called me mean names in local:
Markus Dixon > Your retarded
AdmiralJohn > nou
Markus Dixon > Im not here to provide you a good fight
Markus Dixon > your anything but a good fighter
Markus Dixon > sack of worthless shit
Markus Dixon > dire in a fire
Proceding to dire in a fire.
outdated post please ignore
http://andri.pagekite.me/2012.08.07.04.33.51.jpg - towards end of it I counted tengus and saw 190 ;O
Badgers seem to celebrate the amount of times they die, -A- and co celebrate how much they kill, tonight definitely demonstrated both attitudes.
Maka's titan! What happened there? Couldn't believe it when he made it out.
The TiDi slog was brutal, station was saved and sbu replaced but the fight itself was meaty enough to make everyone happy i think.
http://dog-net.org/brdoc/?brid=10514 mails still coming in.
So after punting on 700 hostiles earlier we had a 3 hour respite to get ready for the shield timer on the station, relatively unimportant timer that we could have punted on yet again if they formed too much, but, as time grew around numbers looked manageable so we formed.
No bullshit, 5 FC's on PL comms, plus the FC team working on TEST comms, fielding a bomber group, a Rokh fleet, a Drake fleet, and a Slowcat carrier group.
I was there only to ride in with supers if the chance came, and oh mama, would it come.
As we usually do, we sat dicking around sorting bonus ships and debating last minute fitting changes for so fucking long, that one scout says "they're shooting the station" and at that point it was do or die, so Sort kicked things off. We only saw about 400 hostiles, though one scout had reported as many as 600..they couldn't have 600 this late at night could they? Silly us for doubting....
So in goes the drake fleet, which starts the TiDi, bridged to a pos, and then the slowcat cyno carrier undocks and lights his cyno, bringing in the 50 spartan slowcats (seriously, you have no idea how awesome a slowcat fleet is until you try one), the Rokhs coming in last.
What followed was a 3 hour orgy of death and destruction that would see north of 1200 ships die. The Tengus would kite out away from the slowcats that were chewing through them like a fat kid on a muffin and the Rokhs would limp along after them, and once the tengus were outside of the circle of death the carriers projected they would turn on the battleships and maul them. Meanwhile the drakes ran around like some kind of jogging path rapist just grabbing what they could and mauling it before they were obliterated.
You have no idea, how awesome it was to see TEST just constantly reshipping and coming back, drake after drake after drake. Rokhs, Huggins, Scimmies, you name it, the bridge titans were burning fuel like mad pumping people back into the fight.
A wild fleet of tornados appeared, only to get bombed to fuck by the test bombers. Meanwhile AAA bombers were working on the carrier fleet parked underneath the station trying to blast through our sentries, and when they weren't doing that, they would absolutely own herds of drakes in the mouth.
Then it happened.
"Maka's Erebus on Grid"
He'd come to DD a Niddhogger
A short debate happened over the number of supers that AAA was able to field at the time, and it was at first deemed that the 40 in system would log in and potentially fuck any response we could come up with...yea, so turns out PL still logs in for "Titan Tackled", we jumped up 60 supercarriers in a matter of seconds and I gave the command to go (this is the command i should have given the second your ass hit the grid but my mistake). The TiDi that wound up from our jump in saved him, Bluemajere took a tirade of abuse from me as his bubble just wouldn't launch, and as the air around the Erebus filled with fighter bombers it slipped into warp.
This period marked some of the heaviest losses for the AAA fleets as they scrambled to unfuck the titan and chaos spread across their comms for about 8 minutes solid.
At this point we were fairly well committed, and I decided to end the fight as best I could, or at least go for the objectives since the Human Wave attack method was bound to run out eventually. We picked an SBU, and after trying to get unfcuked by every dictor AAA had we managed get all the supers in warp to the sbu. a
Meanwhile the subcap meat grinder continued uner and over the station, Drake reinforcements came in waves of 100, shockingly the original BS fleet was still around and in one piece, and the carriers were killing at a fair clip. 60 supers tear through an SBU, even in gay ass 10% TiDi or whatever obscene number it was at and as it popped, AAA set up drag dictors 100km off our next chose SBU. Leme tell you how bad it sucks to try and realign in that kind of TiDi.
Hope sprang in the form of Sorts voice going "Hey one of these SBU's is TEST".
ORLY, well ok then lets do what one shepherd said to the other shepherd and get the flock out of here. Human wave attacks can only be sustained for so long, and after 3 hours, I was worried we were getting near that point so getting the fuck out of dodge became a priority. A little leetcheese drama later and the supers were safe, the subcaps recalled and dagrro'd on the station docking up, bloody and dirty, but reborn hard as woodpecker lips.
The final casualty as the slowcats covered the exit was Elektreas carrier, who was convo spammed as he was bumped off, fairplay just another body on the fire at this point.
Good fight, BR's will show up when the killboards finally finish choking down 1200 dead and or missing.
Sat in my Archon waiting for a reinforcement cyno that never came.
Pretty jealous up north. All we got today is our dreads sieging ncdot towers with impunity.
And with today's fights -A- turned the tide of war in their favor. I honestly didn't think they had it in them, color me impressed.
Yeah bro they totally took 49- from us today.
I slept all day and missed all the fun. Damn you jetlag
It just goes to show that Makalu Zarya has the greatest balls of any FC in all of EVE. Faced with the largest supercap holding alliance in the game, a huge number of subcaps and in a hostile system no other FC would have risked their titan to kill an enemy carrier. But then, no FC in all of EVE can compare to Makalu Zarya, and by extension -A- .
Seriously though, if it was the final timer i could see caring more, but its the shield timer, like even if you knock it into armor you still have another timer to go, at which point I'll literally be calling in everything that will come to make sure the station A) doesn't flip and B) all the SBU's die.
I'm a goals oriented guy like that.
But hey, its the 3am for me (and Maka) feel free to do whatever makes you happy.
So, Test and A had an awesome sauce fight where testicles showed where they are. Suddenly a wild erebus appears, pl hunters gather on it with mighty aeonic and nyxic spears only to find out they didn't bring enough nets.
After this, i really have to say pl seems to be the fail here while a&red found their balls after plenty of "tactical movements backwards" and test got balls full of fun.
Two "umad" posts in one day, I'm doin something right
