Capital Kills

The war in Catch is progressing rapidly. White Noise is finding most of its friends moving on, Raiden to Querious, NC. back north and the other Russian Alliances of the DRF back home.

NYNC's quest for revenge is grinding to a halt much as the German advance did outside of Moscow in WW2.

This week has led to many capital kills, from the dropping of my titan on El Pampa's carrier repping group in Tenerifis to the Nyx kill.

The Nyx kill was especially fun, as we had just lost 3GD6 sov to a titan blob from White Noise, and an unsuccesful bomber run on the White Noise fleet. Intel had reports of a Nyx solo'ing MVN SBUs in Tenerifis, so James Kordent went to check it out. The SBUs were in place from an MVN led offensive on the Irukandji Alliance who had embarked on a land grab a month ago.

The Nyx was indeed in system plinking at SBUs, and spooked by James warped to a safe spot where he was probed out before cloaking. We bridged in and tackled-waiting for a White Noise counter drop from their nearby CTA fleet.

it never came.

Our secondary cyno was put up by me and in came our supercarriers, who ripped apart the Nyx.

Last night I participated in a corp roam, Makalu was a guest and off we went to HED-

White Noise has moved their base of operations to HED- and frankly its a fun place to shoot stupid people. On the way there we snagged a Drake and Arazu camping, and as we neared destination our eyes reported some unusual activity in HED-.

A small Abaddon fleet was formed with some random shiptypes intermixed with what appeared to be triage carriers. Then a dreadnaught warped in to the SV5 gate at range and started shooting a blue... We assumed the Baddon fleet was for us, but were perplexed as we shouldn't have been on the WN "grid" yet.

We were prepping our attack from 2j out when local spiked with a blue fleet... Black Aces and trainee's. This was what the WN fleet had been formed for! We found their fleet on our comms and had them fleet up. At this point the oddball Abaddon fleet had jumped into SV5 and the dreadnaught was back on station... but the game wasn't over. I sent in the original Black Aces gang members (as my fleet was unscouted) and had them warp to HED- gate at 0, and sit point blank on the hostile fleet. I jumped in as well to guide the engagement from my cloaked Falcon. The hostiles sat... who would blink first?

I sent the Black Aces Broadsword through into HED- and had him bubbled up, then told everyone to manually point. WN sat there... not moving.

I then jumped in my gang, showing my Aces High hand. They started to align off, but were pointed. I jumped my fleet through into HED- and had them reapporach....

Finally WN blinked and engaged. My fleet jumped in and with the huge Scimitar composition due to MVN being pro at logi, we held the field and hostiles were taking losses.

Much to my astonishment a White Noise cyno went up.

Ok, so no surprise there.

In came at first one, then 2 then 3 hostile carriers.


We continued beating the hell out of their support, then when they started deaggressing and jumping back into HED- it was party time. We started on the Chimera, worked him into low shield when me and maka finally agreed that no, this was not some kind of elaborate trap and yes, these guys were simply really bad at EVE.

I popped my cyno, we dropped supers and finished them off.
