AW1-21: MISSION ACCOMPLISHED
The Goons have successfuly defended a tech moon coming out of reinforcement in AW1-21 on 08/20/2012. While the Goons where in their typical Drakefleet they had also brought a few tracking dreads to deal with the Abbadon/AHAC fleet that intel suggested was coming. As Goons arrived on the scene first they got to work on the cyno jammer in system so they would be able to use the dreads currently on standby.
After dispatching the cyno jammer in AW1-21 the Goons positioned themselves at range off the gate where the DOTBros were going to be entering the system. Right as bubbles went up on the gate the DOTBros jumped into system. The DOTBro FC appeared to have decloaked a little early and was dead a few seconds later to the incoming fire of all the drakes. To the amusement of all, a few seconds later Mister Vee appeared to have left the fleet and warped off. Insiders say he may have “accidentally the whole client” when turning on missile effects to make sure his fleet was focusing fire.
Once both sides FC’s problems were sorted out, the fight continued with a large amount of back and forth with Goons ultimately holding the field. As the DOTBros started leaving the field it appeared that they were heading home with their heads squarely where the Goons wanted them. Not so.
A few seconds later the Goons were alerted that the DOTBros had just landed on top of the carriers responsible for repairing the tower’s shields. Knowing that the Goon’s fleet was primarily shield based and stuck in bubbles on the gate, the DOTBros started shooting an Archon that was assisting the other triage carriers. Unable to be effectively supported by the shield fleet, the Archon fell. While the DOTBro fleet was busy with the Archon, another Goon carrier was able to light a cyno and in came the tracking dreads.
Once the goons Drakefleet was clear of the bubbles at the gate and the tracking dreads got to work on the hostile Abbadons, the battle was lost for DOTBros. Good fights, amongst other things, were had in local and the remainder of the fleets started their journey home.
