As Pandemic Legion and Northern Coalition forces attempt to defend an Athanor in the Providence region system of D-GTMI, their forces have committed dreads to the field and begun clearing Test force auxiliaries from the system. At the time of writing, 115 defending dreadnoughts have been destroyed, though 28 of Test’s force auxiliaries are down. 225 dreadnoughts are in system with 408 total capital ships including supercapitals. 1241 total ships are in system. With the force auxiliary support falling, Test titans are beginning to take heavy damage from the dreadbomb. The fight is currently ongoing.
A preliminary battle report is available here, and we will update it as more accurate ones emerge.
Test and Brave Newbies have been continuing to resist the Pandemic Legion occupation of Providence. This fight represents yet another point in a string of capital fights since last week’s changes to jump fatigue mechanics took place. TEST comms are being broadcast over on twitch.
The system has been plagued by issues loading grid, and jumping in was causing the client to freeze, or not load the system correctly.
Update: 2015 – the first Test titan has fallen to the dreadbomb. With FAX coverage down it may not be the last.
Update: As of 2040, 195 Northern dreads and 6 carriers have been destroyed, as well as 108 battleships. Test has lost 36 FAX and one Titan.
Update: 2048 – TEST is holding the field with only the one titan lost, and have begun salvage operations.
Update: 2054 – Current losses in ISK are showing at 615 billion lost by NCdot and PL, to 213 billion lost by Test.
Update 2104 – Fight is mostly over now, TEST are extracting. They managed to turn around what looked initially to be a loss for them into a decent victory. We will have an after action report once everyone is extracted and home.
