Day Five: GSFOE
D4KU-5 - Fuel Cartel Border Zone B To cover two Panfam fortizars onlining in Hophib, a Pandemic Horde Navy Augoror fleet jumps in and starts reinforcing the Ansiblex jump gate. An AAR from from Initiative FC Bjtflame and LotusCobra picks up from there:
So we actually just wanted to take the fight on the ansiblex to push them off and I pushed carriers and faxes through as well because the system was inhibited and was relatively risky but we still took the chance. INIT formed Nightmares & Carriers to defend, jumping through the JB into the PH fleet to push them off of it. A quite bloody fight ensued, which saw even numbers of ships dying on both sides however INIT heavily lost the isk war due to losing a few capitals and flying a blingy Nightmare doctrine. Goons showed up to help & PH fucked off since they were no longer outnumbering INIT 2:1. At some point, Initiative brought in a capital wing of three Revelations, one Phoenix, nine Thanatos, 11 Archons and 1 Nidhoggur, gating them L-A5XP as the system had been cyno jammed. Panfam responded quickly, bringing in their own capital forces very quickly from the station on the D4KU gate grid in Hophib. They brought in 24 Revelation, 14 Naglfar and two Moros dreadnought as well as 1 Archon and 14 Thanatos carriers. The only capital loss from Panfam’s side was a Revelation that dsycn’d while jumping back to Hophib. Despite the two fleets trading roughly 1:1, Imperium forces lose 35.8 over 227 ships to Panfam’s losses of 216 ships worth 19.5.
Roughly 12 hours later Northern Coalition. took a Ferox fleet with a Jackdaw wing from Pandemic Horde and then went next door to start shooting the fortizar. They then pinged for reinforcement Munins as The Initiative formed a response Abaddon fleet. Despite the fortizar’s own defenses taking out some of the Jackdaws and the frigate support wing, Panfam manages to put the Fortizar into its first armor timer as well as shoot the logistic Apostles belonging to Pandoralica.
Querious Skirmishes A skirmish involving over 600 players in 49-U6U in the region of Querious contesting a TCU timer. Brave Collective fleet commander gives the after action report:
Originally we were covering the tcu timer for 4-07 as goons had a jackdaw fleet formed for it, when we undocked our Muninn fleet they ran home so we went into 49-u to bash the ansiblex to force them to form again, we got it down to 8% armour before Goons counterdropped with a carrier fleet with a Muninn support fleet. We pinged off and returned into 4-07 and goons didn't follow, FI.RE then formed a Cerberus fleet to see if we can sneak the last 8% and we rushed in and managed to get the last 8% with 4s left on repair, on the way out we managed to split the Muninns from their Carriers so decided to engage knowing full well its a bad idea and that there's likely a 2nd wave. They drop the 2nd wave quite quickly and we kite away but due to some solid work by the goon Huginn pilots they managed to web my monitor down and we couldn't keep kiting. Shortly after we pinged off and returned to Catch, goons didn't chase.
A few hours later, close to the stroke of midnight, Nimrodz2 takes a small Munin and Jackdaw fleet in the same system and skirmishes with an Imperium Caracal and support fleet. The Legacy FC loses 1.2b to the Imperium forces 945mill. Small fights like happen almost around the clocks as Legacy Coalition alliances such as Evictus., Brave Collective continue to offensively entosis the region.
