Day Three: Burnout Competition
Bridge Not Jump An unknown Ragnorok belonging to The Initiative jumped to the beacon in D4KU-5 from presumably in IGE-IN instead of opening a jump bridge. Pings went out on both sides and Panfam staged next door in Hophib quickly mobilized for the kill. Pandemic Legion came in a Tengu fleet, while NCdotte and Pandemic Horde under fleet commanders Arqui Nurbs from Northern Coalition and Mist Amatin from Pandemic Horde formed a large Muninn fleet with Cormorant and Harpy support. The Initiative formed a Zealot fleet and jumped two Apostles and a Ninazu into D4KU to support the Titan. At the conclusion of the brawl, the titan made it out safely at the expense of the three FAXes and the entirety of the Zealot and Guardian fleet. Approximately 68 Sabres from Panfam were destroyed in the attempt to keep the titan pinned down. The Initiative lost approximately 53.9b over 333 ships while saving the titan and Panfam lost 11.4b over 218 ships.
Paragon Soul A massive push by Legacy Coalition to defensively entosis the long list of timers in Paragon Soul paid off. From approximately 0200 to 1400, Legacy clashed with Imperium in O-MCZR, JI-K5H and G-M4GK. The latter system saw a brawl going down over an Imperium Amarr Control Tower POS that was reinforced by a Legacy dreadnought fleet. The tally for the day’s fighting was 6.2b over 151 ships from Imperium compared to Legacy’s losses of 2.5b over 87 ships.
Period Basis A fight went down in UR-E64 around TCAG-3 gate at approximately 1400. The reason is unclear but it could have been an attempt to reinforce the jump bridge. That jump bridge connects to HIX4-H which is one jump from the regional gate TN25-J that connects Period Basis to Delve. Despite Progodlegend accidentally warping his Monitor solo into the ball of Goonswarm and Ranger Regiment Sacrileges, Legacy loses 5.8b over 86 ships to Imperium’s losses of 22.6b over 128 ships. Later that day around 2100, next door in TCAG-3, a fight over an attempted IHUB reinforcement between defending Imperium Jackdaw and Harpy fleets and a small Muninn and and Retribution fleet led by TEST skirmish FCs Atticus Kopernicus and ieatpaperbag. The fight was about even with Imperium losing 1.2b over 21 ships to Legacy’s 1.3b loss over 18 ships. The attempt at entosising the IHUB was unsuccessful.
Legacy Coalition drops two Wyvern and seven Hel supercarries and Nidhoggur and Chimera carriers with Eagle and Jackdaw subcapital support to reinforce an Imperium astrahus in the system of 4-07MU, which is the entrance system into Querious. Legacy loses 1.1b over 30 ships lost to Imperium’s 35 ships totalling 948m. Expect more fighting in this system to the proximity of Querious as well as the reinforced IHUB. Next door, a large Imperium Harpy and support frigate/destroyer fleet kill a Legacy Jackdaw fleet in RR-D05. Legacy loses 8.8b over 128 ships to 65 ships lost by the Imperium worth 3.0b.
A handful of dreadnoughts from Black Omega Security of TEST kill an Imperium POS in O4T-Z5 in Paragon Soul led by fleet commander Boldielocks. It is unsure if it was a deadstick or an active staging POS.
Panfam carriers successfully put The Initiative Foritzar in Hophib into its final timer with a group of carriers. It comes out approximately on Friday at 2300.
Brave Collective is on an entosis campaign of Cloud Ring with IHUBs already being flipped. The Initiative along with Pen is Out owned most of Cloud Ring but Imperium unanchored their structures and consolidated them back to their home regions several weeks before the war began.
Around 0130, a small gang from Odin's Call manage to kill 7.5b in the systems of C3N-35 and LWX-93 in Delve. Judging by the battle report, they managed to get the kills before being pushed off from the harpy response fleet. They lost approximately 434mill over 6 ships.
