PAPI’s M2 Breakout Fails


PAPI attempted to rescue over 300 titans in M2-XFE early Saturday morning but were held off by Imperium forces in a tidi battle that lasted about three hours and brought over 1,500 pilots into system.

The breakout attempt followed weeks of individual failures to escape the bubble farm erected above and below the M2 Keepstar. Several hundred Imperium pilots have kept the grid camped since the hull timer fight on January 3. That fight led to a combined loss of 153 titans by both sides, and a total of 337 PAPI titans trapped in M2 after their pilots logged off.

Today’s fight saw 219 ships and 34 billion ISK lost by PAPI forces and 129 ships and 24 billion ISK lost by the Imperium, but over 300 PAPI titans remain trapped, logged off in system.

Imperium logistics anchored additional Fortizars around the Keepstar in advance of today’s breakout attempt to better control the grid and offer multiple platforms for its subcapital and capital forces. PAPI attempted to anchor an Azbel off grid in system several days ago, but it was destroyed today as well.

    We need to start numbering these so we can remind their line members every time they fail how many times they have failed.

    Is there any truth to the rumors that Vily is an Imperium agent? Because it sure looks like it. No other explanation makes sense in the context of what’s happened.

    • Every EVE player is actually a Zungen alt. Even you and me. We’re all just pawns in his game that he plays for self-amusement.

    1500 players total in a system and this is what they think will free a super fleet?
    What happened to those huge numbers?
    TEST alliance think goons will ignore them and leave apparently.
