Providence still harbours some great PVP experiences for visitors and residents alike, if you are into small/medium gang casual engagement market, this is definitely the place to go – although some times FCs end up bargaining more than they asked for.
Battle Report: The one where Rooks and Kings Annihilates a Provi Bloc Response Fleet.
Early in the evening, reports of a Pure Madness gang appeared in the intel channels. They were reported instantly as they entered Providence from low-sec out of Assah (Derelik). Six guardians, Six Zealots, a Loki, a Legion and Damnation…
Sounds like bait, I think?
ProviBloc got confirmation when someone scouted their Rooks & Kings friends at a Titan nearby. The usual faction battleship hot-drop they know so well.
A bit later, a ProviBloc fleet was forming up, HellCats and guardians, with capitals on standby.
As their numbers grew. A separate shield-based support fleet was put up. Calls went out for more numbers in the fleet coordination channels, and people from all over Providence joined up.
The Pure Madness bait fleet only got two jumps into Providence and the fight took place on the G-5EN2 gate in the 9-F0B2 solar system. As the hostiles were reported next door, ProviBloc burned off a bit to avoid starting the fight at zero.
Rooks and Kings/Pure Madness wasted no time in getting the cyno up and getting their caps and faction bs-es in. ProviBloc responded with caps of their own, all according to their plan.
It was at this point nothing went to the CVA FC’s Plan, he called a couple of Bhaalgorns primary right away. ProviBloc didn’t even come close to breaking their tanks, meanwhile Rooks and Kings began doing what they have become so good at and rendered the ProviBloc cap fleet useless by draining almost every capitals capacitor. ProviBloc even attempted to kill a phobos to no avail.
Then, the CVA FC went down.
After a feeble attempt at trying to put damage on a sieged Revelation failed the order to abort was given by a secondary CVA FC. It was time to get tackle off field and bail.
It seems ProviBloc are still determined to try and still have come out fighting whenever they are given the opportunity. Taking Rooks and Kings on with caps could be seen as brave or perhaps stupid but at least they didnt dock up and blueball them.
John Caffeine from Rooks and Kings said this after the fight:
“Just had a great fight with CVA and the other Providence Holders. Huge props to you guys for bringing a proper fight and having the balls to put caps on field. I hope the result will be more even next time, I fear our fleet was a bit too top-heavy considering the support fleet you guys had, but good show regardless.”
