ALOTD: Awful Losses Of The Deployment


The Imperium went on deployment in the north just over a week ago, but it seems some of Delve’s most stubborn ISK farmers still haven’t got the message. The Super-Carrier and Rorqual kills are coming in so fast that Imperium News would become the “Delve Awful Loss Of The Day Feed” if we showed you all of them. I estimate we have already broken above half a TRILLION ISK lost this week in Delve already, and there will be more to come. So lets put them all together and take a moment to laugh at the most awful losses from the deployment so far.

(And for all the Horde pilots screeching on Reddit about these kills. Remember, they’re “already replaced”. You are not harming the war effort killing random Delve Rorquals, you are just thinning out the idiots for us.)

Let’s start with the Super-Carrier losses, which began with the Wyvern that died ratting during The Mittani’s State of The Goonion Speech. And The Kills Kept Coming In. A special shout out to the nearly 50 billion ISK Hel that died this week!

The Rorqual count lost in Delve this month has skyrocketed to over 60, averaging at least 5 a day since we went on deployment. Again In Come The Battle Reports – This is just some of the biggest losses, skipping out the near constant daily losses of individual Rorquals flying alone since deployment.

Imperium pilots, please, please stop. We are not coming to save you; we are on the other side of the galaxy actually having fun. Just put the Rorquals away for a month. I promise there will be plenty of Spodumain for you when we get back.

If you get killed mining, INN will mine you for content. Check back next week, and no doubt every week of the war, some people never learn, for more terrible losses in Delve! Maybe we’ll break a Trillion next week!

    Unlike some places I could mention I am pretty confident that The Imperium simply respects the right of their members to fly and do what they want at a personal level.Some people may not have time to do anything other than a bit of mining or ratting when real life presents the opportunity. With an organisation as large as The Imperium it is to be expected that some remain back in the homeland.

    The really interesting things about all of this though is twofold. Firstly for the PanFam to even feel the need to apply any pressure on Delve. Especially as they are all about “gud fites” and “content”. So why go to Delve at all?

    The second is that PanFam prefer to fight people either not overly well informed or not even at their keyboard. Is this the elite PvP that PL represent? More than likely this must be the case, else they would be inclined to show us all these amazing PvP skills they claim to have. Instead safe in the knowledge that The Imperium has not brought up its titans and super carriers the PanFam huddle in the shelter of their capital umbrella.

    If the PanFam were truly the masters of PvP, as is so often claimed, then fighting as Spartans would be the preference every time. Outnumbered, in battle against more numerous foes. Holding the line with skill and expertise. That would be glorious for any true warrior.

    Instead weak arguments are thrown forward such as “well you would out number us in sub capitals”. The Imperium has fought twice now in Hakonen knowing that the PanFam capital fleet would be fully deployed each time. Yet The Imperium did not back down from the engagement at all.

    So I expect such losses to continue whilst The Imperium is deployed. Personally I would even go so far to say that it actually serves The Imperium rather well in the long run.

      Panfam is just enforcing the THE NEW HALAIMA CODE OF CONDUCT via our lord James315.

      Rule #4
      – No AFK mining allowed. All miners are expected to remain at their keyboards at all times, and are required to prove their presence by responding in local when requested by the Supreme Protector or one of his Agents.

      PL fighting outnumbered:

        That was a nicely setup trap but also easily avoided. But the effort is in the preparation of the trap. There is a lot less risk in the execution.

        Hello Grathy, always lovely to hear from you.

        My comment is simply based on what I see in and out of game. PL are quite keen to tweet and reddit post about their wonderful exploits against people either being dumb or AFK. There have been many times though when yourself and Elise will throw out the old “we do good fights” line. Yet to be so anxious to get all this lovely content you have in the north to return home seems counter-intuitive.

        Anyway, well done for expressing yourself so well. May I suggest that you get a pet in somewhere like NC to make a Reddit post about this comment, or to even write an opinion piece and have it published somewhere :-).

        Also thank you kindly for the reg-date shaming. I always love to see that as it has to be the best counter to any argument or position.

      This I had not expected you to post Moomin. Faith in you lost.

        Hello dear. Without you being more precise in why this is unexpected and for you to then lose faith in me I am not sure how to help you.

        So I guess I can only wish that you have fun doing whatever it is you do.

      pan fam wants to win fights not lose them… They are under no obligation to fight under our terms after we came up to meet them

      however, losing the ships we have been losing in delve due to dumbasses ratting and mining serves as a propaganda tool for our enemies… they come up here and cant anchor a fortizar… they also can’t defend their space… I just want these idiots to stop giving them fuel for the fire… and pay attention to intel if you feel like you need to be an ass

        The Mittani stated that the main intention of the action in the north by The Imperium was to force our hostiles to choose. They did so, and very quickly at that.

        The minor victories being claimed at this time by PanFam are just that. It may seem significant victories compared to the other stuff happening, or not happening, in New Eden. But when you look at the bigger picture over a longer time frame then it becomes a very different proposition. For a hint on this check out the Meta Show for today and listen to Aryth.

        Also check out Bell curves and accept that they are a thing.

    Haha absolutely love it.

    i have to wonder if rorqs down in delve are just trying to mine as much mats needed for replacement rorqs before they’re tackled and killed by panfam?

    and if so can the cycle ever be interupted? is this the definition of insanity?

      Just to give you an idea, one of our pilots Gaara, self destructed something like 40 rorquals because it was faster than waiting for them to get killed.
