Breaking News: Imperial Legacy, FEDUP, Destroy Multiple CO2 Structures Uncontested

Shokalokaboom 2018-08-22

Forces from the Imperium and Legacy Coalition hit multiple CO2 structures in Fade today.  The intial incursion saw Imperium Baltec and Hammerfleets travel to X36Y-G for the structure timer of the Circle-of-Two Fortizar there. Half an hour later, a second CO2 Fortizar, this time in 3V8-LJ, died to Legacy Coalition. Despite expecting heavy resistance, both Fortizars exploded without any notable defense.

The next engagement came over the final timer of Circle-of-Two’s Sotiyo in 0-ARFO.  Once again the combined arms of the Imperium’s Baltec and Hammerfleet engaged the target while the CO2 fleet—which was confirmed to have formed—was apparently elsewhere.

The was some speculation that CO2 would make at least some effort to defend their structures.  Initial reports indicated a Muninn fleet somewhere in the area.  Some line members questioned whether Circle-of-Two would muster another Muninn fleet based on the significant losses they incurred during the battle in DW-T2I on August 19.  That engagement saw a Muninn fleet fail to defend against similar forces from the Imperium, and ended with the reinforcement of the Co2 I-Hub located there.

The Imperium’s Baltec and Hammerfleet forces aimed to continue their path of destruction and landed on grid with the Fortizar located in C-OK0R.  With mere minutes left on the structure’s vulnerability timer the fleet was suddenly called to DW-T21. There, they reinforced the Ishtar fleet out of ROIR attacking the system’s I-Hub. However, Imperium Jackdaws finished off the Fortizar. Co2’s lack of defense also allowed an Aeon and Nidhoggur duo with a small bomber group to destroy multiple structures while the bulk of Imperium forces concentrated on the I-Hub.

Later activity included another dead CO2 Fortizar, this time in 0-ARFO, falling to a combined assault from the Imperium and Federation Uprising (FEDUP).

Fleet Commander Havish Montak had this to say about today’s victory, “We formed up, we attacked our objectives and the enemy formed up for some sort of secondary objective elsewhere for something we obviously weren’t going to engage, why pass up on expensive killmails like a Sotiyo and a Fortizar?”

Sky Marshall Asher Elias was also asked for comment regarding the uncontested devastation wrought by The Imperium today with his statement being, “We won and killed everything and they were afraid to fight”.

It was a great day for Imperium forces, but it begs the question: is Co2 still prepared to defend their space?

    CO2 has been learning from the elite alliances like PL and NCdock. Best to be “busy” elsewhere as that keeps your kb nice and green.

      Or perhaps they’re feeling so outnumbered/outgunned they’re not even bothering to fight back.

    PanFam and friends were all in C4C. 600 of them or so in total. But the really weird bit was that they were formed for so long. It had all the look of a military exercise. Just like a military exercise there were no engagements. A shame really as they could have easily got a fight by coming for The Imperium who were attacking their structures.

      It gets better. They were so bad at defending they only gunned the first thing we hit. So for the rest we could just push out drones and not waste any ammo.

      These things had guns fit. They had fuel inside. The gunners kept warping about like rats in the proverbial sinking ship but never actually got in the seat again.

        I took a short break trying to entosis stuff near C4C due house chores and work.
        Why were you guys there? Were you waiting for me to come by again?

    Circle of Two is costing GOTG a great deal of money and morale with its incompetence and inability (or unwillingness) to defend its assets. And GOTG is paying this price for an alliance whose main accomplishment is betraying all its previous coalitions. How many members does Co2 have left? About 3000? Maybe it’s time for GOTG to drop 3000 pounds of dead weight.

    • Don’t forget, C02 filled a massive hole in the GOTG meatshield.
      Imperium then assulted the North, went hard on the C02. Gotg can’t just drop Co2 mid war and lose all those systems.. even black legion would have a hard time helping out then.

        I think the opposite would happen if GOTG cut off Co2. So does Asher Elias, apparently, who said this in response to X47:

        “… Before this I publicly advised GOTG that we didn’t want their space and they should just retreat to Branch and let us roll CO2 and we’d have been sated.”
