The AAA loses key Catch system as GE-8JV flips to White Noise. hands
Last night, another -A- system fell to RA and friends. Local in GE was filled with Russian as the final counter ticked down. -A- allies had formed up sub cap fleets and were holding ready to harass the attacking fleet while -A- formed up their super cap and cap fleets. Cursors hovered over the jump command as scouts reported the state of local. The defenders counted their numbers while looking wide eyed at the reports of what was sitting in GE. The attacking force knew they outnumbered the defenders both numerically and in terms of firepower. The number of titans they brought to the system was simply staggering, let alone the super carriers. They were so secure in their control of the system that more than once through the night they warped titans to various locations to accomplish tasks normally handled by industrial ships without escort. The TCU fell. A bomber gang failed horribly into the attacking sub cap fleet while the RA and WN supers wandered the system completely unconcerned by the defending fleets nearby. One Rag pilot was so bored he started chasing down a dram scout, warping from gate to gate, in an attempt to doomsday the scout. He was denied the killmail, in the end however, when it fell into an Armor-HAC gang bubble at a planet.
The attacking sub cap fleet bridged out, leaving a few hundred supers and capitals to hold the system until the White Noise TCU finished onlining. A TCU that was, incidentally, anchored by yet another bored titan pilot.
Personally speaking I have read about super capital proliferation in Eve. I have seen some of the massive battles. I have watched the ridiculous damage that can be dished out with a super and the asinine amount of damage they can tank. I have been in sub cap fleets where the entire tide of a battle was turned because of a single super capital. I have watched SC fleets eaten alive by NC supers. I have watched NC systems fall because no fleet was willing to attack the DRF supers in system. The sheer over the top spectacle of the rise of the super capital blob and the impact it has on the game never ceases to floor me though. The question of how the war in the south would progress after the fall of HED-GP has been answered in the form of two dozen RA and WN titans locking down a system until it was flipped.
