BREAKING NEWS: 200b Dead in Catch Capital Fight

2017-05-01

Today, at approx 18:00 EVE time, fighting in Catch has claimed over 200b ISK, mostly in capital ships. The skirmish took place between Pandemic Legion and allies, and the residents of the region. The defenders included Brave Collection, TEST Alliance Please Ignore, Circle-of-Two, and others. The cause of this is unclear at present, but it is possible PL and Waffles were heading to Providence to defend the Spectre Fleet citadels in KBP7-G.

Over the course of the next hour, the skirmish resulted in over 200 Billion ISK of losses. At the time of writing this battle report, the last of the kills are still being uploaded. Zkill’s battle report is currently mixing both sides into one another, and when a proper battle report becomes available, the link above will be updated. INN hopes to have a full summary of the battle to follow once we are able to reach out to Fleet Commanders for comments.

Whilst not particularly valuable kills, there were several notable killmails from the fight:
Pandemic Legion’s Grath Telkin, known for both his in-game skill and his impressive capacity for verbal evisceration, lost just over 5b ISK of ship and implants in the fighting.


Also among the casualties was legendary Megathron Pilot Baltec1. Flying with a Machariel Fleet, Baltec’s signature ship was fitted to match the performance profile of the Machariels. According to one member of the GSF Fitting Team, “That dude can make a Megathron do things it is just not supposed to do.

    Thanks Dracos, it seems from reports that there were also a lot of bugs normally associated with TiDi + lag, such as hull energizers running for 10 minutes, and module cycling issues with guns.

    If they were on the way to Provi when they got caught up, it would explain the lack of defenders in KBP

    To be fair, he came in as a member of ASCEE.

    So what I’m saying is kick ASCEE.
