Dearest Filthy Killers;
I just awoke from some sleep after what has been one of the most amazing days of Eve I have ever
experienced. It all begun on monday when our Titans and Supercarriers warped boldy onto the field in
D-G to take down the jammer. What proceeded to happen over the next 30 hours was pure chaos and
ecstasy in motion.
19:00 -19:10 Titans & Supercarriers take down D-G jammer
19:10 -21:00 Friendly forces bridged into D-G from multiple titans. During this time multiple
skirmishes and pos bowling happened in D-G. Hostiles will to fight was destroyed.
21:00 - 22:00 Several hostile POS destroyed in system.
22:00 -23:00 D-G Station placed into 2nd RF with no opposition.
23:00 - 23:59 WD-VTV hostile I-HUB and TCU destroyed with no opposition. We then went to 9KOE
and killed a hostile tower that had just exited reinforce.
00:00 - 03:30 Small skirmishes by roaming gangs in and around D-G. I was watching system and had
been stalking a few carriers as they began to rep POS modules. I DD'd one thanatos and killed it and
called for light support to come assist in bumping the other back out of the pos as several titans were
logging in for some fun.
Pesky Supercarriers wanted some action as well and Provi-Blob had a nice BC camp all in a nice little
ball on the F9E gate in a bubble. So with carriers on standby in GE and scouts reporting all clear. I
unleashed 3 Supercarriers to go eat the BC gang. As they landed they started smartbombing claiming
20+ kills in under 20 seconds. Provi-Blob sensing blood called for backup and then the fight was on.
Our supercarriers were bubbled well but tanking fine killing hostiles at a rate of 2-3 per minute. Then
word was recieved that Goonswarm was moving a 50 man BC gang in this direction. I issued the order
for supercarriers to leave the field but they were very tackled by HIC's and dictors.
Knowing that situation could turn into a problem very quickly a warpin was setup and 4 titans came in
and DD'd hictors to free our supercarriers. Boom Hictors down I told supercarriers to warp and as I did
a bubble was dropped on Lordmordred's Wyvern as the other 2 escaped. Mordred was calm and insured
that his tank and cap was holding fine but Phreeze had just entered D-G local. Goons jumped and
started pounding our now lone single supercarrier. So I warped my rapier in ontop of Mordred and lit a
cyno bringing about 8 carriers in to help spider tank and clear more tackles.
Within 5 minutes the carriers and supercarriers were able to loose the Wyvern and it broke free into
warp. At this point I had been podded and decided to go get my carriers as 10 more carriers were also
ready to jump into the fight. Virtuozzo lit a cyno and in we poured with more carriers warping instantly
to the field. One of our carriers a thanatos piloted by Therik was primaried and even though being
spider tanked by 7 other carriers had fallen to 40% armor. As the new carriers joined the field we
stabilized our spider tank. But local was now almost 300 with almost 200 being hostile.
What proceeded next was amazing. Here we were 20 tackled carriers fighting 200 hostiles. We aligned
to the planet where our POS was and started to take down targets. No matter how many we killed it
seemed more appeared. Sometime during this bloodbath a friendly pulse Zealot made it onto the field
which the carriers made sure to keep alive. For the next 20 minutes we butchered the hostile force. The
field now littered with wrecks and almost all hostile dictors and hictors dead our senses told us that we
should take our leave and warp out to the POS while we could.
Sure enough not but a moment or 2 later after our carriers left the field hostile capitals warped in. At
this point all hostile dictors had been killed and the collecting swarm of titans had grown jealous of our
fun and shenanigans. Virtuozzo made a warpin targets were assigned carriers and supercarriers aligned
in case we needed to bail out our boomsticks. Whoosh 5 titans warped to a spot far off the F9E gate.
DD fired was repeated by all of the titans followed by warping out by all as well. We giggled and took
some relief after what had been a 4 hour running battle.
185 killed for 4 losses (6 capitals killed). GO US TZ!!!
04:00 - 11:00
After taking carriers back to GE and relaxing what seemed to only be a few seconds a "Source"
contacted me and was very excited. " Goons just lost SOV everywhere" he said. At first I was shocked
and figured it to be a troll he had bit on. Insistently he proclaimed " Sov is down GOONS are
SHITTING themselves" . I ordered up a few scouts to burn over to Querious and verify this was true.
"OMG GOONS HAVE NO SOV TCU AND IHUBS ARE ANCHORED" scouts reported. I quickly
started yelling on comms and chats alerting as many people as I could. Pinging jabber " Goons Sov is
down get in FLEET". Ships were swapped to BS > FSI > Dictors as I scrambled to assemble the fleet
and move it to 4-07. As this was going on I was locating TCU's and preparing to go in and start taking
out TCU's. I contacted SysK as well as getting on IT teamspeak and going from channel to channel
waking them up and instructing them to get there alliance awake and in fleet. All the while im nudging
people on MSN and pinging away at jabber.
We moved to H74 and took down the TCU and started to online one of our own. After that we raced all
over Querious killing TCU's and getting dropped on by 40 Goon carriers that were hellbent on stopping
us. We would get a TCU into deep armor and then Goons would drop a carrier blob on us and we
would have to withdraw for lack of numbers. By this time IT and SysK were getting fleets up and
moving. Only 2 problems SysK's fleet was small and underpowered and IT's fleet was being blockaded
in 1-SMEB by a 150+ Goon fleet. All of us were speaking and we all decided to press on as this
opportunity was to great to give up on. AAA would continue to run around and inflict as much damage
while SysK moved on T-PAR. IT continued to battle Goons and keep them fixated on trying to stop IT
from reaching NOL.
I swear ive tried to remember the exact order of where we went and which TCU's were killed but it
escapes me. I was tired as hell and running on pure adrenaline. But we made progress Goons would
hotdrop and we would bail to another system and continue pounding TCU's I was in multiple convos
getting TCU's sorted and freighters moving to acquire IHUB's. All the while orchestrating moving new
gangmembers and ammo resupplies in from various points.
Finally someone got Molle out of bed and he answered my MSN. Next thing I know he was in game
and working to build numbers. Liam from SysK had a harder time of getting adequate numbers and to
make matters worse ZAF was blockading TCAG with a medium sized gang and carriers. He eventually
was able to break the camp and get to TPAR but it cost his ships and precious time. Omg was time
prescious because everywhere were little timers of onligning TCU's that Goonswarm scrambled to get
back up and online. To make matters worse some of the TCU's we killed had been replaced by new
ones but they were anchoring at POS's. At one point we reshipped many people into Logistics so that
we could deal with killing TCU's at hostile POS's
Molle Liam and I were constantly speaking with eachother in a groupchat with other FC's scouts and "
Intel Sources" collecting and reporting hostile movements size and etc. We had decided that the
Primary targets overall had to be J-LP and NOL-M9 the former being Goons capital staging point and
the latter being there subcapital staging point and main market hub. Terciary to this was I1Y and H74
for AAA ( logistical points for Querious Delve Period Basis ) and TPAR for SysK to facilitate attacks
and staging. Liam was now in TPAR but Molle was still blocked but his numbers were growing.
I dropped what we were doing and moved our fleet to J-LP and started working on the TCU to only be
dropped by Goons Carrier blob. We managed to kill the cyno but the AAA fleet was only about 90
strong at that point. We withdrew next door to F-T and killed the TCU there. Scouts reported that
Goons carrier blob had left J-L and it was now mostly clear. It should be noted that Goons were
basically moving a carrier blob all over there space attacking SysK IT and AAA to try to stave our
attacks. Unfortunately for them we understood the tactic and decided that we had 3 fronts and they
could only stop progess in 1 of the 3 at a time.
With the F-T TCU down we moved back into J-L and shot the TCU. As the TCU got to about 25%
Armor a new cyno was lit at a POS in line with planet 9. I issued orders for dictors to move 90km in
the direction of planet 9 from the TCU and keep dictor bubbles up. I ordered the fleet to align away
from planet 9 and to " Throw every bit of DPS you have at this TCU now". This system was crucial to
get control of Molle was blockaded Liam was in Period Basis we had no help or backup it was on us to
get it down. In came the Goon carriers "YES" our dictors caught them in the bubbles and out of rep
range of the TCU as the TCU was getting into hull. I can only imagine the panic and disappointment
Goons felt watching there TCU slowly drop to deep structure damage powerless to do anything to stop
it as they were trapped in our dictors web of bubbles. I felt bad for them for a split second as im sure
they were feeling there space and power slide out of there grasp. Then I came to my senses and we
BBQ'd that TCU and warped off in a chorus of cheer.
We moved on with no waste to the next system with a onlining TCU. The process was as simple as
warpin shoot align to something and go to the next as soon as the TCU died trying to preserve every
second of time. We made it to our 3rd system after J-L and started to shoot the TCU. Molle exclaimed "
We broke through and are in NOL but Goons just dropped caps on us to try to stop us can you get
here?" . I told everyone to pull drones and put a scout ahead and we burned for NOL . As we reached
PR- we found a Rebellion BS gang of about 30 trying to block us. They retreated into NOL and we
followed. We jumped in and engaged killing some as they tried to escape and I ordered our scout " Get
me a fucking warpin on those caps".
By the time we got on field and loaded grid there were only 10 or so caps left we proceeded to butcher
them while Molle kept cynoing more and more dreads and titans to the field. We reposistioned once
moving in close range to some Goon/Rebellion BS that came in as a last ditch effort to turn the tides.
Killing them and the last caps dieing we warped out to the TCU being joined shortly after by the entire
IT capital ans subcapital fleet burning the NOL TCU down with only a few minutes left for Downtime.
We killed it with 5 minutes to spare and I decided to try to move towards 49-U to regroup after
downtime. Sadly we only made it as far as 319 and the order was issued to dock up and wait for
downtime to pass.
12:00 - 19:30
After downtime we quickly formed back up and moved down the pipe towards 49-U stopping otw in 2
systems to kill more TCU's The second one should be noted we killed with less than a minute before it
finished onlining. Realizing that we couldnt kill anymore TCU's we moved people back who could get
in dreads and recruited more new gang members as well. While this was going on Molle was working
to kill J-L's 2nd TCU that Goons had ninja'd up and Sysk had killed the TPAR and 1 other TCU. We
got capitals and BS moved to I1Y and proceeded to kill the IHUB and then go siege the station. I have
to say that stations have a ridiculous amount of hitpoints and with only 20 dreads a few assorted
carriers and 30-40 BS it took us a hour and a half to shoot the station all the way down to 0 structure.
During this time freighters were moved in and we got a IHUB anchoring and onligning in I1Y.
PPN got the killing blow on the station in I1Y and got a station manager over to setup station timer
revoke cloning contracts and rename it to a fitting name. I1Y Evil Thug Memorial FUCK YES I
thought. We restronted dreads and then moved everyone to ED-L9T where this process was repeated in
less time due to growing numbers but nevertheless still seemed like a eternity. As this was going on
Molle was killing random Goons trying to escape with assets including a Jumpfreighter. Rebellion
moved a 100 man BS gang to tpar along with 20 carriers to try to stop SysK from getting there TCU
online. SysK's fleet was pretty small as Liam had told 200 of his pilots to log in D-G the night before.
We were working to bridge them out with a AAA titan as they logged in but it was clear the Period
Basis front would collapse if not bolstered. We were in siege in ED-L9T and werent able to move to
help SysK so IT luckily had just came out of siege 1 capital jump away. Molle volunteered to jump his
200 capitals into TPAR to stave off the counter attack of Rebellion. Liam took 10 carrier losses and
heavy subcapital losses protecting the TCU till IT was able to come in with the calvary and butcher
Rebellions fleet making them flee.
At this point we finished ED and VVS had won the station but didnt have someone to take care of the
station there so they turned the station over to Havoc. As a joke I renamed the station ED FIX HQ and
this got some giggles. The best part of the whole day though was Evil Thug hoppin on Teamspeak to
see what we had all been up to. It was reported to him that we with BOB and SYSK were burning
Querious Delve and Period Basis to the ground. We also let him know we captured I1Y and named it in
his honor. This was a moment of personal satisfaction and gratitude to all of you that we have been able
to come alive and work so well together. Capturing that station and naming it in Thugs honor was one
of the things I think I will be most proud of in Eve.
After ED was finished we moved onto H74 to kill the IHUB and then back to Catch to prepare for our
CTA in D-G. I was tired and had been FCing for 26 hours straight at this point. I turned the fleet over to
Nighthawk Virtuozzo and Xero and proceeded to stumble to my bed and fall fast asleep. I dont know
the exact details of what happened in D-G but judging by the killboard we WTFPWND Proviblob and
killed the IHUB.
I want to say thank you to everyone in this alliance who has gone out of there way to show up get in
fleet and to never run out of desire to kill and burn everything we see. Special thanks go out to all the
FC's scouts and logistic teams we have been moving at a hurried pace and you all make things so much
easier. I cannot express enough the gratitude I have for you all.
