LIVE: Jayneleb Pandemic Legion “NETC” Keepstar Destroyed

Tonight a NETC (Trade Network) Keepstars came out of anchoring into the 15 minute vulnerability timer.

The Keepstar is in Jayneleb in Derelik, and while it is part of the NETC, it is said to be managed by RocketX, from Pandemic Legion.

As the timer approached, rumours started that PL would be joined in the defense of the Keepstar by NC., Darkness, and surprisingly, CO2.

The mention of CO2 in conjunction with this defense is surprising, as PL destroyed a Keepstar belonging to CO2 in M-O on Sunday, and have been opposing them in the war in Tribute.

The involvement of CO2 is likely due to them being part of the defense group for the Trade Network, which we wrote about here.

We will keep you updated as things happen (or not, as the case may be).

At present, GSF have 4 fleets en route, whilst PL/NC have been skirmishing in Venal with CO2.

Provibloc have just landed on grid, local is at 1350, with the vast majority of the system being filled with attackers from Imperium, Red Alliance, Drone Region Federation, CVA and assorted allies.

The fleets are subcaps, with Machariels, Nightmares and T3s making up the bulk of the fleets.

Tidi is at 30%, timer is paused, so damage is being applied to the hull

It seems PL and NC diverted to Venal to reinforce a CO2 fortizar. They may now be en route.

PL have left Venal, there is still time for them to arrive, as it takes 24 minutes without tidi to take down a section of structure.

Local has just spiked to 2500

Triumvirate have now arrived in system.

Snuffed Out have arrived in local, Rapid Withdrawal also arrived.

TEST have also warped in a tornado fleet, they are here to attack the Keepstar

Tiberius Stargazer is not in the system, so we will not have any food for you during this fight sadly.

FCON have left again

Structure is at 50%.

The only PL spotted in system is Jeronica, who guested on Talking in Stations this week and cooked a lovely blue donut during the M-O fight

2146

[21:46:17] Jeronica > I politely ask you guys to stop shooting this Keepstar.

It is not known if Jeronicas polite request will be heeded.

Well, thats it for the evening, there are many questions to be answered about why there was no defense fleet present.  Whether it was due to the defenders underestimating the number of Imperium who would turn up, or because they had other business to attend to in Venal will hopefully become clear.

However, irrespective of whether 100 or 1000 Imperium had shown up, there would have been a need for a defense fleet.  A Keepstar after anchoring has no defenses, and CO2, PL, MC have been present for the anchoring of Fortizars on the network, so to let this one fall without any defense is strange.

I guess the old proverb the enemy of my enemy is my friend rings true with PL/NC/CO2. I hope there is an epic battle and all parties involved have fun. Oh, I almost forgot; death to the traitors!

Always excuses when something dies ‘didn’t want that Keepstar anyway’. For the cost of the Keepstar it should have 3 Doomsday weapon mounts. One is not enough. For a 300 billion game item they appear to be a massive isk sink. Have any successfully defended themselves yet?

I’m going to guess they let it fall undefended because it was just Lenny’s investment anyway and losing their own fleets would actually have cost them money.

In short this boils down to a big “fuck Lenny” from both sides. As it should be.

Supposedly the skirmishing that PL/NC. and CO2 were having up north was more important than defending the Keepstar that all three of those alliances are supposed to be defending.

I guess PL can afford the monetary loss and jumping in a half assed defence fleet to get whelped would be useless and embarrassing.
