NC Loki Fleet Dunked By Alt Defense Fleet




Alt Fleet, Best Fleet

At around 01:00 EvE time, the Swarm formed up in Delve staging, in preparation to defend the iHub in 1-Smeb. Comprised of nearly all PvE alts, a Jackdaw fleet began to amass in 1DQ, ready to do their part in the war effort. Now I say Jackdaw fleet, but the truth of the matter is, by its very nature, the fleet was filled with many different alpha frigates and a random assortment of junk. That said, this junk fleet was the worst thing that could have happened to an NC Loki fleet looking to attack Sov.

The Few Bait Rapiers

The first fight was with a few sov-hacking Rapiers sitting off an iHub. We landed and burned down towards them but they were, I’ll admit, fast. Damn fast. The brawl was short, our grunts started swarming towards them but we were told to anchor back up. We had a more important fight coming. Our two fleets met, but we did not fight the first time. We ended up playing games for a while, jumping to and fro, looking for the right place to aggress them. We figured out which way their fleet was heading, and we warped with them. Landing on the gate, they crashed through and we followed.

Bubbles, Bubbles Everywhere

Bubbles in Delve

Dictors started bubbling furiously to catch the NC fleet, The friendly cyno went up and in dropped only a small part of the Delve Armor Super Carriers and Titans ready to demolish any and all opposition, and they did, gloriously.  When the dust finally was settled the total loss equalled 24,027,684,502.22 for that system alone, not a bad days work for an Alt Defense Fleet.  The Bees quickly worked to loot the field, and let me tell you, war chests were restocked by the drops. Many men went home infinitely better off than they were before the fleet.

This is Johnny Crowe reporting from the rear, give em’ hell boys.

    Thank you for the read Johnny.

    This does raise a question for me though.

    You see NC came to Gehi for “good fights” and “content”. The Imperium then goes north and offers such things. But instead of fighting up north NC feel compelled to come south and set sov timers instead. Does this sound like an alliance that is suffering cognitive dissonance?

    It seems to get better though as some PanFam commentators are saying that sov timers do not matter unless you fight them. Then also to follow up with sov not being a factor at all. It feels very much like all the bases are being covered here.

      • NCdot. I’m not sure it’s ~*for*~ them. They should probably have stuck to hunting Excavator drones with covert Lokis.

    lol. goons spin best spin. 30 odd lokis and you write an essay on it….

    • Moomin Amatin Stephen Clark

      You are correct. An essay is a short piece of writing on a particular subject.

      The 30 billion or so lost by NC is not the important bit. It is more to the activity so far from the NC home seemingly to put pressure on The Imperium’s homeland.

      Missing where the spin is though. Would you be so kind to point that bit out?

      The writer was on a fleet that he enjoyed being on. He wrote a piece about being on a fleet, we published it.

      If you have some spin of your own you would like to submit about a fleet you have been on, and it is put together well enough, we will publish it.

    Alt fleet with super and titan support, hmm.. seems to me the story might have spinned quite differently without the supers.

    Johnny crowe I am really starting to dislike you and your well written line member articles. I am a very stubborn self proclaimed grrrrrr goons loyalist and these articles from your hand are making it harder and harder to just grrrrrr goons out of habit. As of late I even tried to remember why I grrrrrr goons like I do. So ffs stop writing or quit goons, it’s as simple as that.
    And to you mittens well played well played indeed. Using poor misguided Johny to infiltrate my grrrrrr goons thoughts.
