holy shit eve must be boring for this thread to devolve into shakespeare quotes
"It is a good thing for an uneducated man to read a book of quotations. " - Winston Churchill
Actually, if you're curious, i have a copy of the Complete works of William Shakespeare here at work with me. It's the one i had in college, and it's been rebound 3 times. Back home, i have my individual playbooks, with my blocking and personal reminders about motivation and what i should be feeling inside at that moment (the word choice here is poor, as most of these emotional notes tie to past experiences and don't follow a formal pattern)..
Admittedly, when Butter Dog asked for quotes not of Shakespeare, i reached for my quote list, as my other primary resources are at home (Neuromancer, Beautiful Code, Mythical Man Month, and the other reference books do not lend themselves in this context to a good source for material). I'll bring other primary resources in to work tomorrow so as not to depend upon my quick reference list from forensics.
No no - keep up the Shakespearian quotes - I like 'em.
Id love to see some of the forensics quotes tbh.
It is the rule in war, if ten times the enemy's strength, surround them; if five times, attack them; if double, be able to divide them; if equal,engage them; if fewer, be able to evade them; if weaker, be able to avoid them.

THE GREATEST POSTER
We can't see that link without a CVA login username/password.
U'K reported on SHC about some failed attempt to coordinate with Agony Empire to kill a PXF/CVA fleet, and both fleets got slaughtered in succession. Was it that?
that was it indeed
it was only my corp doing a ~wolfpax~, we lost THIRTEEN ships in glorious combat, end of story
but i guess Provi don't have much to fap over on forums these days, so every little helps!
on the plus side, at least we know DarkMatter is a CVA pilot - not that this suprises anyone I'm sure
I think congratulations to paxton are in order, they did very well winning that fight, its nice to see that they are still alive and kicking some ass.
Xennith was negrepped for this post.
The UK killboard is not private, so you link to the private CVA one that we can't see :facepalm:
I don't imagine CVA and friends will totally vanish, and I expect some fun fights with more manageable numbers from them in the future. Should be a lot more interesting than it was before.
I know you're desperate to score forum points, but you know, one of our corp gangs losing a few HAC's isn't actually that important... just sayin
Anyway, we're back to campaign mode after a short break from Monday. So expect to see plenty more systems changing hands soon™
I don't know if you are directing the "awesome :metagame: skillz" at me, my corp, or some kind of bitter jab at Ushra'Khan and their ilk, can you enlighten me?
yes terrible us for having friends, not a tactic CVA have ever used to make up for the fact they are a mediocre alliance
how you get the word 'relevant' from me uttering the word 'we' I'm not quite sure
but on a relative scale of relevance, I'd say U'K and CVA are in a pretty similar space
So i guess Provi war part 3.. or is part 4 starting with some station grinding and Agony Empire??? taking space in north Provi...
more like part 2.5
part 3 happens soon™
just burn the provi dogs already and let it be done. stop playing games with them and take everything over. those still in providence are either too weak or too tired to fight. those who are no longer in provi are the ones who made the right choice to get out of the way of the rape gangs.
good timing, lolz
Got news for ya: They're basically just changing zip codes. NC will set their standings for them and tell them where to live same as CVA would
So bassically sucking -A-'s dick and allowing S3v to go NBSI .. do I get it right?
Still I don't get what is the "crap" cva tells anyone.. I mean as far as I know the policy hasnt been changed 5 years and -A- has never been blue... So what is it?
p.s. somewhat I feel you are telling me crap.. because we have ppl blue which are red to the rest of Provi-block / KOS but that doesnt matter or doesnt anyway work against us..
If you wanted 200vs200 battleship brawls why did you evict sev3rance out of their space in all curiosity? because they were giving you just that. I guess its because the space was already promised to the Atlas/AAA renters/killmail rainforest whatever you guys are calling them.
Whats even more amusing is posters on their forums/SHC/eve/here keep changing every other week.
"fuck reinforcing uncontested IHUBs is boring as fuck"
"I hope we get a fight"
"we just wanted to evict you lawllllllll fuck ~~goodfights~"
"fuck reinforcing uncontested IHUBs is boring as fuck"
"I hope we get a fight"
For the last time, we're not doing this for ~goodfights~
we don't want 200 v 200 honour battles, we want to remove CVA and their pets from their space, that means shooting static objects
nonshocker AAA are terrible
here is an AAR of that fight from my corp forum....
Ok well we formed up for the 18:30 OP, which if I remember correctly was the H6 station. A little while before we'd noticed KA6 had dropped sov so we were messing around trying to get logistics arranged to ninja it, A task made easier by the stash of liberated Provi POSes and mods.
Anyway OP stated, H6 RFed with Caps/Support. We then proceeded to plead with Xious that he really wanted to shoot KA6 station down as well. In the bartering that following, I offered him free poker lessons, and with that he agreed to stop by and help take it down for us.
Before this could happen though we started getting intel on Provi forming in X6. When their numbers moved over 150 and it became clear they had a bit of an agenda, and with our own support fleet only being 60, we sent out the call to get more guys, and the op was upgraded to a CTA.
While the intel gathering was going on the Caps moved into KA6 and started shooting the station there, which was taken by U'K without incident (New station!).
With the support just sat in 9UY, we found some very annoying individuals shooting our G-5 POS. We setup a hot drop with support unfortunately they initiated the fastest fleet warp I've ever seen, and my covert only succeeded in dying. But they didnt go back to the tower to finish it off, so we'll take that as a victory as well. \o/
We then discovered what Provi plans were to SBU R3- so we furious set about working on getting in system. Though it turned out Provi has no intention of fighting in R3-, and as we bridged support and caps in, they bailed and ran to R3-. SBU's were killed, while Provi sat on the R3- gate in X-R at snipe range.
We then prepared to jump into them, unfortunately we discovered X6 was infact cyno jammed so our capital numbers of around 60 carriers counted for nothing. Sub cap wise, Provi had a 150 man fleet with around 90 or something BS 30-40 support, compared to our 60 or so BS and 30-40 support. We thought screw it, if we jump in maybe we can draw them into our carriers in R3- or something.
So we jumped in, cleared away their dictors, shot BS, then what followed was some old school fleet fight "tagging", one side warps out, come back, other side warps out, comes back, etc.
We then made the call to jump back into R3, not sure how much we had left. We regrouped, bridged some refinforcements in from 9UY, and decidede we'd go again. Jump in, warp in, warp out, shoot, shoot etc., we bridge reinforments into R3-, Provi pilots go get new ships. Shoot, shoot, warp in, counter spot, shoot, shoot, etc.
In the end we started getting a lot more reinforcements then they were, including Agony who had finished up shooting their station in D6. So after 3 hours of non-stop fighting Provi with their fleet down to 90 called it a night. We did the same looted the field and made the run back to HED.
well i dunno about the services, we arent using the station so its bit pointless
but the POS in g-5 (a medium) was reinforced some time in the night, no idea when as we didnt get a second aggro mail - but it came out of reinforced at 16:30 today and was repped without incident
CEO MEETING 16:00 Saturday - CEO/CEO REP ONLY!
From: Lupus Aurelius
Sent: 2010.04.02 17:48
To: FCON Alliance Directors,
We will be having a CEO /CEO Rep and alliance officer meeting for the below. At that time, we will finish off the main stratergy and get a team established for co-ordinating it.
We will be closing the deal today, but we will have space again. Details atm will be limited, and no one, I MEAN NO ONE, is to tell the membership where or with who yet.
-We will not be renters, but allies
-We will be able to take sov right away in 3 systems
-We will have 3 other systems to clear out, and for larger issues involved with that, a batphone for help. These 3 systems have no IHUBs, just TCUs and towers, one has no POS on the TCU (lmao)
-We will have blue standings, intel channel access, fleet channel access, JB access
-For the open systems, we have to talk to the high council about what we get (part of the no rent deal), for the moons we take enemy POS down at, we probably going to keep those (has to be confirmed, as of today)
This is being approved today by our new allies high council, and standings will be established by tomorrow.
What we need to do:
-We need for everyone to understand, drop your carebearing and mission running, get into combat ships, and lets make a good impression
-We will have to set up neutral freighter ops to move ships, ammo and supplies to our staging area. Location will be Gamis.
-We need to get a sizable combat team in the area by late Sunday. I would like to see at least 50 ppl. We move in as a fleet, possible doing escort for logistics on the way as well, go back to Gamis, and bring a second wave of ships in as well.
-Diplos will have to put in a little OT for making sure standings are established with locals. I will co-ordinate it.
You need to tell your ppl, you're either there, or you're out. Sounds harsh, but we need to have the numbers, and the ships, to do this. If ppl are going to come up to mine and rat, then they damn well better contribute to doing the job of getting us set up there. You want the benefits, contribute.
~~~~GIMMIE +REP+ GIMMIE~~~~
Just say 'leadership'. Its not hardour new allies high council
I suppose FC's are 'star captains' or some such balls
Not Dead, Just Sleeping
mmmm interesting. I'm assuming they are either going to be living in wicked creek or scalding pass
Could be part of NC as pets of other but mm/rzr dont allow renters but they could do better than being a pet i guess...
