Dotbros, Nulli & IRC vs The Deklein Coalition – 42XJ-N brawl
The war against Goons has started to get ~serious~, with some systems in Tribute starting to have their sovereignty threatened. That was the premise for the start of this nights op. Well, that and Elo promised cap kills, as Goons were reffing things with caps and an 80man support fleet. Some cat and mouse was played in the 03C-SU constellation as DotBros bridged in around 160 man AHAC fleet in an attempt to catch some caps, and then kill them.
Things didn’t quite go that way, and the DotBros ended up bridging back to H-W9TY and then rebridging to Venal for a C0NVICTED Dysprosium moon coming out of reinforce in 42XJ-N.
The hope was a brawl would happen and MAYBE we’d get this moon. (This moon has been the sight of quite a few brawls between DotBros and Goons). The AHAC fleet entered system first, followed shortly by an Intrepid Crossing support fleet of Muninns. Pings were made, warpins were adjusted, and probes were set in preparation of the Goon coming to save the tower.
A Rifter played around near the edge of the pos shields and was the focus of some interceptors, as the general consensus was that this ship was one of the cyno ships that would be used to get Goons into the system. More cat and mouse as the AHACS moved around the system, eventually to the G9D gate when word of an approaching Drake fleet was received.
Then the cynos went up.
Two simultaneous cynos were opened on a tower: one used to bridge in a Maelstrom blob, the other to bridge in tracking dreads/carriers.
Why Goons brought tracking dreads to an AHAC brawl is confusing at best. One cyno Falcon was killed, and the fight, it seemed, was on.
DotBros warped out, then quickly warped in to get better positioning both on the Maelstroms and the caps. Capital ships were primaried first, with a Moros and 2 Chimeras quickly erased from the field. The focus then shifted to the Huginns that were on field. Once sufficient numbers of Huginns/Lachesis/Scorpions were dead, the AHACS repositioned on top of the Maelstrom fleet.
Bubbles went up and a Turkey Shoot commenced. The Maelstroms no longer much of a problem, the Drake fleet was then targeted by the DOTBros. Even as the Goons tried to skirt the range of the AHACS, ships were being killed at a solid pace.
Vily was webbed and pointed and eventually blapped as the rest of the Drake fleet microwarpdrived out of the range of the AHACS. At this point, with their FC dead and DBRB having to take over this fleet (he was fcing the Maels, but was killed) the Goon drakes began disengaging and began to warp off.
DotBros very convincingly held the field, even replacing the tower with their own though it is already reinforced.

It should be noted that IRC lost more Muninns than what is shown in that BR Doctor, and that DBRB rage logged after having his alts killed and podded in each of the Goon fleets. B.Legion best Legion
We navigate thought the murky shitpoasting waters so you don’t have to.
http://dog-net.org/brdoc/?brid=11557That seems like a win for the dotbros at the moment, i cant give a very good account as i was a grunt in the terribad IRC Muninn fleet(we only lost half our munins to be fair). IRC has stood down for now after a fairly good showing in our new Muninn fleet along with members in the ahac fleet. Went in to take down the tower and around 1/4 armour we warp to a gate(cant remember which) when all of the sudden 2 cynos pop up we warp to cyno and our fc decides that we were teh only ones on field cuz he couldnt see the ahacs below us so we warp off, woops, but then we warp back in. We get onto a dread and 2 carriers at teh pos and then warp back out because were too close. The muninns are warping in and out while the ahacs are demolishing the mael fleet. We get a couple of kills here and there warping between planets and back in and out. One of the warps closer to the end put us all ontop of the drake fleet at 0, bubble goes up fc says just get out of the bubble and warp. Seems like ahacs cleaned up pretty handily after IRC bomber run because next thing i know were on the pos and its at 75% armour. We kill it and run back to ebyos cuz were lazy and 2 hours is a long op for us i guess tbh the whole fight was a blur and i shoulda died like 3 or 4 different times but was good fun.

Great Fight CFC thank you for making my Sunday evening fun filled and exiting.
The best part of the whole fight is when Elo says someone web Villy so we can kill him later. After trying he caught reps, tbh he tanked better then the carriers we killed earlier in the fight we swapped off and back to him only when we started to run out of targets we could even lock. The drakes did a fairly good job of keeping us at range but boat warped in on us at 0 more then once which I did not understand.
