Nearly a week ago, Newtron of SniggWaffe announced to Reddit that Sniggwaffe would be having an anniversary public roam.
“Two of them actually.
As WAFFLES’ resident JEFFRAIDER knock-off, I got to plan a party. Since a purely-Sniggwaffe roam wouldn’t work for shooting fellow Moneybadgers, and because those bee guys don’t undock, we decided to shoot each other! And we want YOU to join us.
We’re going to split the Waffles and whoever wants to show up into two teams by having a “draft” Friday (tomorrow) at 20:00 Eve time (we’ll still pick up latecomers/out-of-timezoners after the draft) in the in-game channel WAFFLES PUB to split the teams.
Once the teams are decided, each FC will pick a doctrine with which they want to kill the other team. That gives each team 2 days to JF/Red Frog, etc. their fits to the staging systems.
One team led by Xeno Szenn will stage in Kinakka, while the other team led by myself will stage in Old Man Star (if you’re afraid of going into lowsec without the rest of the fleet, you can stage in Onnamon/Villore respectively). EDIT: Form-up is 20:00 Eve time on SUNDAY (because some of you nerds work on Saturdays, and we tried to make a monster truck-style video for it before it got deleted)
Rules (there aren’t many): 1. No sharing of doctrines between teams (because everyone loves a surprise)
You can bring battleships and triage!
Find the other team and blow them up.
Anyone shows up to 3rd-party the fleet, the three-way becomes a gangbang. This public roam is open to anyone! Horde, PL, Those Bee Guys, SMA, EXE, TEST, SOLAR, xXDeathXx, doesn’t matter so come on down!
EDIT: I FORGOT WE’RE GOING TO HAVE KARAOKE AFTER THE FLEET WITH PRIZES! INDIVIDUAL PRIZES, BUT THEN AT THE END WE’LL DO A CLASH OF PRO-IMPERIUM SINGERS SINGING “LITTLE BEES” VS. MBC SINGERS SINGING SINDEL PELLION’S “THAT’S HOW WE KNOW””
The post caught the attention of over 330 pilots and over one hundred corporations and alliances. Some of the most notable groups included WAFFLES themselves, Snuffed Out, Phoebe Freeport Republic, Pandemic Legion, Pandemic Horde, Project Mayhem, Spectre Fleet, Spaceship Bebop & Gallente Federation and many, many more.
Tyler Burbon of Snuffed Out stated,
“We heard about their birthday event so we formed a Nightmare fleet together with Project Mayhem and chose a bit more mobile comp than the usual heavy armor BS stuff. Waffles had their faction BS fleet with Archon support and a Moros sitting on the Aldranette gate in Vlillirier while we were setup on the other side. We waited for a while seeing if they would jump into system which eventually happened after we warped to the Nennamaila gate. After another crosswarp of both fleets the fight finally kicked off on the Nennamaila gate.
Props to waffles, they brought a strong setup but weren’t able to win this one. Either way, I hope everyone still had fun and birthday fleets are supposed to be welped anyway!”
The anniversary roam lived up to expectations as a huge fight broke out on the Nennamaila gate in Aldranette. During the fight, the two teams formed by WAFFLES and friends engaged Snuff Out’s Nightmare fleet with an array of faction battleships, including Machariels, Bhaalgorns, Apocalypse Navy Issues, Tempest Fleet Issues and a few capitals. Spectre Fleet also came to third-party on the roam with Nagas, small tackle and command destroyers. The Imperium was expected to join in on the fight as a third party; however, barring on lone Raptor pilot, no one from the coalition participated. Over 42B ISK was destroyed during the engagement.
