Multiboxed Rorquals down to PL in Delve


Pandemic Legion slaughtered seven rorquals belonging to a member of Goonswarm’s Chinese corporation, Peoples Liberation Army early Thursday morning. Total losses according to zkillboard exceeded 72 billion.

Pandemic Legion apparently used a combination of a wormhole-based tackle fleet in conjunction with dreadnaughts previously staged into NPC Delve to kill the Rorquals before help could arrive.

When the call went out to save the Rorquals, a response fleet quickly filled to capacity with capitals and a subcapital support fleet also had strong numbers. The pilot saw that mobile cyno inhibitors had been dropped, and lit a cyno immediately in the Theta standing fleet, but due to the fleet boss being AFK, and a series of miscommunications, the defenders were in a different fleet.  By the time the problem was realized, the mobile cyno inhibitors were online.

As soon as the pilot realized that the cynos were needed in a different fleet, he moved his cyno alt to that fleet, not realising that if you do this while a cyno is up, it breaks the cyno.  When Imperium.News spoke to him, he wanted this to be the main lesson that everyone learned from his losses.

Complicating all of this the pilot couldn’t be clearly understood due to background noise, leaving the Rorquals to die despite an overwhelming response force ready to save them.

    It seems like a perfect storm of miscommunication, misunderstandings, and bad timing. Also, multiple rorqual losses is becoming a bit of a trend this February.

    There are many spots in eve where you have one person flying 6-10 rorqs, along with others that join in on his mining ops. These groups will be targeted more and more because lets face it how many one man rorq fleets can handle drops like this. Especial if the rorq grps are not fitted right or the system and systems next to it jammed. Geez these fits just make your wonder how much real money this guy spent to skill inject and buy those drones to get them out there fast without researching rorq mining grp proper fits. Proper rorq fits can easily tank 2 supers for as long as his cap and Capital cap injectors last which is a long time. I mine with 7 rorq and I can tell you , the grp that droped on this guy would be easily tanked, and with rorq dps it could have took out ships since they had no real logi. And the mobile depots are suppose to be used to keep your capital drones safe for atleast 2 days while you are droped, but this guy had the wrong depots along with trying to launch them after the fact and not as soon as you mine in a spot. Bad just bad.

    Overwhelming fleet my ass. Stain fraggin kicked their asses with their “overwhelming fleet” and now PL. I see a trend. Goons are dying, been happening for some time now. Fed up with them spinning lies, it gets tiresome. There are eyes on Delve. The next Great War will begin soon. Goons won’t survive and they will finally be laid to rest. They’ve gotten fat and lazy in Delve, everyone I know sees it, everyone predicts it. Only a matter of time now. I will be there watching it with some hot buttered popcorn.

      sounds like someone is VERY salty. I mean, goons are the only douche bags in the game right? And to burst your bubble, if there is any group in the game that can survive, its CONDI. Can’t tell if you are a troll or bitter salty scru….I mean vet.
