Told from the perspective of a Black Legion. grunt, here is a battle report that shows that the war is heating up with both sides playing a bit of offense, DOTBROS formed up to go and get a good fight with Goons over a moon that was reinforced in Venal. At 0200 fleets were formed, NCdot and Nulli in AHACS and Black Legion in Tornadoes. Goons got into their usual AlphaFleet, Bombers, and Drakes.
ROUND 1: Black Legion was the first into system and set up numerous cloaky probers/warp-ins around the tower (r64 or tech) in max preparation for the fight. Goons soon cynoed in at a pounce above the tower with Alpha/Drake/Carrier fleets. The B.Legion Tornadoes harassed them a bit, catching stragglers and insta-popping them, but were soon forced off due to the Goon bomber wing. This happened for a few minutes, with the Tornadoes almost 2-shotting a Nidhoggur and some Chimeras getting volleyed into armor.
Then NCdot/Nulli/IRC arrived and TiDi spiked as the AHAC contingent arrived at the POS. The AHACS started to brawl it out with the Maelstroms and Drakes while the Tornadoes warped in and killed Huginns, FCs, Anchors and then warped out when the bombers tried to bomb them. Lake and Zagdul both were insta-popped off the field, along with the logistics and Drake anchors. The Drake fleet followed, as they were doing the most damage to the AHACS. Soon, Goons started to disengage and rally back into the POS shields. THis was truly a good fight.
ROUND 2: Seeking revenge for their earlier defeat, DOTBROS went to reinforce a tech moon that was taken during EU time zone in DL1C-E (http://dog-net.org/brdoc/?brid=11150). Dreads jumped in and the tower was reinforced without issue. They then went on to a different tower with the intentions of reinforcing it as well.
Their destination was set to 9SL-K9 and the Dreads jumped in. About halfway through the tower’s shields a ping went out for a Drake fleet FC’d by Zagdul. Dreads exited siege just as a cyno opened. Round 2 was on. NCdot was quick and bubbled/popped the cyno. About 80~ drakes plus assorted other stuff came in, NCdot/B.Legion got to work immediately. The bomber wing was ineffective and all 3 sniper fleets were able to stay on grid for the entirety of the fight. All in all, this was a good night for the DOTBROS.
