“Shit” went down yesterday, as our TEST battle reported put it, for Morsus Mihi as their over confidence proved treacherous in the M2-XFE solar system in the Delve Region.
Battle Report: The Deklein Coalition lands hit on an overconfident Morsus Mihi FC – Two Supers Down.
The day started for DaBigRedBoat leading a fleet to take M2-XFE. A WelpCane fleet about 120 strong took down the station and i-Hub, after which the fleet was disbanded.
About 8 hours later, right after the downtime, the DekGo intel channels reported the sighting of two (2) Morsus Mihi super-capitals in M2-XFE with an additional 40 members of both BricK sQuAD. and Morsus Mihi alliance, Mr Vee made a quick form up and departed for the system.
An exchange between FCs Mr Vee [DekCO) and a recently reinstated as FC Imperian was made in Jabber, providing some interesting insight of Imperian lack of understanding on the newest Eve Online tactics:
[14:12:18] Imperian: Vee !
[14:12:31] Vee: sup
[14:12:38] Imperian: did you grind the m2- station with hurricanes ? oO
[14:12:49] Vee: sure
[14:12:50] Vee: well, boat did
[14:12:57] Imperian: ha
[14:13:08] Imperian: poor boat
[14:13:29] Vee: why do we have no tcu online
[14:13:35] Imperian: because i just blew it up
[14:13:47] Imperian: and station is in structure again
[14:14:14] Vee: doesnt seem dead yet!
[14:50:23] Imperian: nooob
[14:50:29] Imperian: coming to a supercap fight without dictors
[14:50:56] Vee: goonswarm 2011
It took five mines after the Jabber convo for a 50+ strong WelpFleet to reach M2-XFE, where carriers and sub-capital ships were waiting for them, 40 second later four (4) Nyx, one (1) Hel and two (2) Wyvern appeared on grid.
As the slugfest began to unfold, bubbles went up for both sides, the initial +30,000 DPS of the combined WelpCane fleet began to take its toll on the Morsus Mihi fleet, with new primaries being called every 30 seconds by Mr Vee, whose increased fleet size, due to constantly arriving reinforcements, made him confident enough to start calling primary on the capitals. The first carrier went down and the second faster than the first, at this moment the WelpCane fleet on the field had increased up to 200+ members for a combined 120,000 DPS.
Had it not been by the mixed RAWR / Brix BattleShip fleet, who had been spending all their DPS on the DekCo’s interdictors, the blow could had been worst as the ever increasing DekCo fleet started running out of bubbles and the not trapped Morsus Mihi super-carriers managed to warp out. Such was not the luck of a Wyvern pilot whom the DekCo interdictors managed to keep bubbled up while the rest of the fleet neuted his capacitor at a steadfast rate, with his shield resists mods turned off at 50% shields it melted rapidly.
Local was spammed and lulz were had yesterday as Imperian’s calculated wager turned on him.
