I had put this piece along the Erebus kill, some suggested it deserved a thread for its own.
Fatal Ascension Wyvern Loss
We had promised this one, so here it is.
Intelligence provided to Psychotic Tendencies revealed a possible Fatal Ascension assault on a Planetary Customs office in EF-F36. After a short form up of a fleet from Syndicate and surrounding regions, Psychotic Tendencies and assorted allies prepared to fight against a Fatal Ascension Drake fleet with carrier support on both sides.
Upon getting a scout into system, it was stated that Fatal Ascension had a Wyvern, piloted by SKS HOLOCAUST, which was on field approximately 100 kilometers from the customs office, with minimal support on grid.
The scout prepared to get into range, noting that Fatal Ascension had approximately 80 pilots in system, for support but that none of the sub-capital ships were undocked. At the call, the scout lit the beacon for Psychotic Tendencies to jump to, and Heavy Interdictors locked down the Wyvern. At this point Psychotic Tendencies began to shoot the Wyvern, which had immediately activated the self-destruct sequence upon the lighting of the beacon.
After the mandatory 120 seconds, the self-destruct sequence completed
(2:10:48 Notify Wyvern belonging to SKS HOLOCAUST self-destructs)
Resulting in the destruction of the Wyvern with a ship scanner reporting the following fit included.
After the destruction of SKS HOLOCAUST’s escape pod, eve-kill.net/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=13695927, multiple Fatal Ascension pilots warped to grid, to be caught in the interdiction bubbles, and subsequently destroyed.
According to estimates, the total loss for Fatal Ascension sits at around 120 billion isk in losses since moving into Syndicate, after the ~25 billion isk in ship and fittings on the Wyvern.
Psychotic Tendencies suffered only the loss of the cynosural pilot, resulting in a loss of around 75 million isk with the escape pod and implants.
This is a new EN24 feature – we do a machete-trek throughout the dense shitpoasting jungles so you don’t have to.
Well, Fatal Ascension continuing to prove that they’re awesome.
So we know that the Custom Offices in EF- are coming out shortly, and our sources also tell us that they aren’t organised and any fleet would be about eighty strong with Drakes and a couple random Carriers. We do what any self-respecting party would do and call everyone. So in around forty-five minutes, we form up around eighty vessels from Black Rise, Metropolis, Sinq Laison, Syndicate and Solitude. We then sit nearby and wait for something to happen. Our scout reports that the sub-cap fleet has not undocked and that instead a trio of random Carriers and a handful of random support have began to hit the Office. A Wyvern then warps to the POCO at one hundred, again, we do what any sensible person would do and light a cyno on it, dropping a burnished brass and gold kitchen sink on it.
It begins to self destruct the instant it gets tackled. We think this is just bait to get us to drop Dreads and Supers and decline to, fully expecting the Wyvern to light it’s cyno and drop us. At 88% shields, he self destructs. The ninety to one hundred friendly pilots in system have not even undocked to try to save him. 02:10:48 Notify Wyvern belonging to SKS HOLOCAUST self-destructs.
What. The. Fuck. eve-kill.net/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=13695927
TL;DR – FA Wyvern tackled on POCO in staging system with around 100 friendlies in local. FW/Low-Sec/Syndicate all gang up and hit it in the face with the kitchen sink. It dies.
Including the Wyvern loss and all Capital self-destructs Fatal Ascension have now lost roughly 100-120 Billion ISK in Syndicate. The moons that they are currently confirmed to have taken make roughly 6 Billion ISK in profit a month. At that rate, Fatal Ascension will take just over a year to replace losses on their new acquisitions. Nice one.
WELCOME TO SYNDICATE. Many thanks to all of our brosefs for making this possible.
EDIT – And a video to go along with it.
OTHER EDIT – At time of edit, there are two remixes of Kesha songs playing out FA on our forums.
