Breaking: Northern Forces suffer major losses in failed dreadbomb

Paramemetic 2018-03-25

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.

    The truth that PANDEMIC LEGION stopped being what it was,with the only echo of coming to take PROVIDENCE and expelto the new pilots who wanted to know a 0.0 without having obligations,it is detestable for the entire eve community.i play eve without interruptions since 2009, I have dedicated the majority from the time of my life in the game to teaching new pilots,and I am disgusted, disgusted or do not know how to call it.It irritates me to see how the ant work that cost so many yearsis broken down by someone who takes a game for personal gain.This reminds me of what the CEO of RA .
    PANDEMIC LEGION would have to reconsider and realize that many people are leaving the game because of ithas done to us in the past.
    and I think that CCP has to take action in this matter. (the stations would have to be anchored like now to avoid these speculations that ruin the game )

    and with respect to this the loss figures are greater:

      Stop bitching. This game is meant to have conflict that makes people angry.
