Ragnarok down in M-OEE8

2017-08-20

At roughly 10:15 a Ragnarok was captured in a belt in M-OEE8 which is a staging system for the enemies of the current swarm deployment. The Ragnarok wasn’t shit fit, or ratting even though it was found in a belt, so I imagined it was running special operations. Either extracting or putting troops deep behind enemy lines. I could only guess what it’s true purpose was there. Naturally like most capitals, it was filled with various treasures and faction or officer mods waiting to be taken by the daring fleet. The ship alone was worth an astounding eighty-three billion, and the accompanying pod was worth a further ten billion.

While the Ragnarok was worth a whopping 83,094,336,244.72, less than 10 billion was recoverable from the wreck. Curious about the loss, and the details behind it I reached out to the FC who commanded the assault to find out more.  It turns out it was an escalation, I was wrong it seemed. Definitely not there for a bridge. It turned out a roving Jackdaw fleet had tackled an NC Apostle and Thanatos that were camping the Taisy gate. From what Killah Bee told me, Moxii jumped the Ragnarok in to go for a doomsday on the enemy ships stuck tackled at the gate. It was then that they flash formed a fleet to destroy the Ragnarok. The Ragnarok warped back to a safe he was previously using but unfortunately, the enemy fleet had dictors waiting there for him. After that, the poor Ragnarok melted quickly.

Having spoken to the Pandemic Legion FC, I reached out to the pilot who lost the Ragnarok for their side of the story. It turns out I was less wrong than I had originally thought. The Ragnarok had a purpose in M-0. It had bridged in the Jackdaw fleet to tackle the Thanatos. The Thanatos was in serious trouble and their faxes were stuck about 100km away. Being a goon hero, he jumped in to doomsday the Thanatos but caught an alt with the same name that happened to be flying the Apostle instead. I asked Moxii for a few words for up and coming Titan pilots and he gave me sound advice. “Don’t fuck up your bookmarks and warps.” sound, very very sound.

As promised, Killah Bee sends a shout out to the pilots who probed him and managed to keep tackle on him. All in all another start to a crazy day in New Eden.

    This was a bit confusing
    In the first paragraph you told us about a killed Ragnarok in M-OEE8 so we could assume it belonged to one of the two sides in the current war, but not to which one.
    Next you say you contacted the FC, again without directly giving his name or affiliation, first actually mentioning his name four sentences later.
    Then you tell us of a Jackdaw fleet (without mentioning affiliation again) and the NC capitals they tackled, at which point we can assume the Jackdaw fleet is affiliated with Goons.
    That the Ragnarok also belonged to Goons can be guessed because it attacked the ‘ships stuck tackled on the gate’ which are more likely to be the capitals belonging to NC and not the Jackdaw fleet. But this is only confirmed in the middle of the third paragraph where you mention the Ragnarok bridging in the Jackdaw fleet and ‘being a goon hero’.
    TL;DR : Vital information should be given and w-questions answered at the beginning of the article, otherwise it ends up confusing and the reader has to actively stick the pieces together one by one while reading

      I’m sorry it wasn’t as concise as you’d have liked sir. I suppose next time you can piece it together from zkillboard. I figured it would be pretty obvious but the actual crest link wasn’t imbedded in this one. Do give it a few.

    Agree with Diato’s comments. Fully confused, and the true ALOD tried to be put as “a special ops was not successful enough”. GSF line members should get better orders and coordination from commanders otherwise it’s all turned to clusterfuck invasion and bloody nose.
