We are regrouping a bit, the start got a little bit 'all over the place', and turkey-shoot wouldn't be understating it. Once we were all on grid, we seemed to have our act together, but by then we had lost too much to shoot through the reps and firewall, and a lot of our logi had been sent home in boxes. On the upside, I'm still alive, so I'm chilled
EDIT: As a bit of an explain for those not there - our entry cyno got splatted. Zag and tried to get a load of bubbles up around the cyno to save us from that, but sods law, the NC AHACs got in to 0, and we found ourselves all over the system. A couple of attempted regroup warps (one of which landed 50ish Drakes in bubbles) caused us to lose a chunk of the fleet. We gathered up, went back in, and NCdot brought in a couple of Triage carriers. By now Zag was dead, and we were trying to sort callers. We saw Colonel Kurtz go into Triage, and thought, lets go for ut. Unfortunatly, local repper and firewall meant we couldn't break him, and pretty much game over.
How could that whelp have been avoided or mitigated? When the cyno went down and the fleet was scattered you needed to regroup entirely and get a proper warp-in instead of just warping half fleets into defensive bubbles. It might not have been a victory but it wouldn't be the rape that it was.
Do you mind if I ask why you guys insist on using on grid bonus command ships instead of off grid t3 links? I know you're pushing hard for offgrid links being nerfed so that your massive blobs can just alpha them and remove any advantage to an opponent with smaller numbers, but do you really need to handicap yourselves? Or is the thinking along the lines of: We'll just whelp thousands of maelstroms into tracking Titans to show CCP they need to nerf them instead of using something Titans can't track, like ahacs.
I still can't decide if Gothic is retarded or just a bad poster.
Twitter: @WidotVenetianT - RIP Vile Rat.
Seconding Gothic. Why put your anchors/FC's in Vultures/Claymores, which is asking to get fucked.
Still deciding if we are still in the Durr age where we just ban people because we don't like them or their posting
Any chance on the low down (BR) in 4NGK-F Geminate. Solar Block v NC.dot/Nulli.
So far, it seems like dotbros are winning on kills, but it's difficult to tell because the fight is in constant flux. I fucking love Solar.
Solar's running typical mael fleet with a drake fleet supporting, dotbros in ahacs with triage support. Fighting across several grids. Lots of pinging around trying to land at 0 on the maels and bounce out when the drake dps starts landing. Triage carrier's have been heroes of this fight, I think we've lost a few so far though. No idea what's happening with the ~strategic objectives~.
and round 2 is in mr4 in gem. Just as bloody. Fucking 4th or 5th ahac by now.
Threeway with nc. vs solar vs goons. Looks like solar will hold the field atm.
Frakk yeah, I'm a ninja.
>get owned on kugu
>get owned ingame
>tomorrow he gets fired
yeah I was told in the end. So its was solar/cfc vs nc.
Still awesome stuff
Bridged in, landed on the whelp canes.
Whelp, too bad i din't had a second zealot
Fight sounded awesome on comms.
Excellent stuff, hope we get in on some these big fights. Harvey.. to ze rescue.
That was the epitome of brawlin' outrageous. For a few seconds, I found myself TP'ed, and rapidly (but actually slowly, because tit's TiDi) losing health. I broadcasted, and Logis caught me at 5% armor. #TooPro
The once mighty solar becoming goon pets... a sad day for new eden

I actually just hit Gothic up to write for THE MITTANI DOT COM as he's been pretty astute in the comments complaining about bias, and it turns out he's in NCdot. A perfect match!
Its in both their interests to see NCdot eliminated and remember when goons publicly appealed to solar to join them in replacing -A- during the delve invasion?
Could be the first signs of co-operation in the spirit of such an agreement, a true bi-polar eve universe in the making perhaps.
Or simply alota tinfoil, interesting to speculate though.
It's like people don't even know their Eve history~
GF's and all that.
It's fun being a pet. Maybe I can get some of that tech moolah.
Edit: Or you are not in SOLAR anymore are you? nvm then... oops
As the one in NCdot that has probably fought SOLAR the longest, and have huge respect for them, I have to say I did not think to see the day where SOLAR would work together with Goons just to overblob some subcap engagement. Pretty pathetic.
CFC needs more friends!
