u know 1400s do more dps than 1200s rightHere's the thing. Nulli still use 1400mm Maelstroms, which are extremely dependent on their alpha, not their DPS, to tear through fleets. Our fleet was a fleet of 1200mm (although I guarantee some dumb TEST pieces of shit left their 1400s on), and Rokhs. 1200mm Maels/Railrokhs are still somewhat dependent on alpha to own nerds, but less so than the original 1400mm Alphafleet. Once you no longer have enough Maelstroms in a 1400mm fleet to one-shot a target, you're pretty much fucked. In 1200mm/Rokhs, you can still sputter on and inflict some meaningful damage to the other fleet even without alphaing them.
What this means is that, all other elements excluded, the fact that we had 50 more people than S2N in a doctrine that doesn't hit nearly as hard of a brick wall as S2N's, and we were evenly trading, means that the fact they were evenly trading at the start of the fight isn't particularly relevant. If the brawl had continued down to the last ship with no super-sick bombing runs and no dreads, and we'd continued trading like we were, Nulli's fleet would've run out of gas as soon as they ran out of enough Maelstroms to instantly alpha something whilst the Rokhs and 1200mm Maelstroms managed to limp their way across the finish line.
This is been a DurrHurrDurr Seriouspost(tm), helping you realize why you're all dumb.
