Station in BJD4-E belonging to Red.Overlord was coming out of final reinforce.
It was unclear for ROL/-A- if TEST and PL would come or they will send only smaller entities of their coalition. ROL had HICs with cyno cloaked in system. ROL diplos informed -A- regarding upcoming fight on which -A- gladly replied and formed their fleet.
Cyno went up next to station and Unclaimed. supers jumped in. ROL hero dictor decloaked immediately and warped to cyno bubling Unclaimed. supers while dying in fire.
Second cyno went up immediately and ROL/-A- fleet came in. Supers and dreadnaughts made a quick work of 3 supers and carriers belonging to Unclaimed.
100 man foxcat fleet came too late to reinforce Unclaimed. but they sill took the system. ROL/-A- managed to escape losing station but killing 3 supercarriers and 5 carriers + some support.
Battle Report from Unclaimed. side
You are probably looking at our killboard right now going… WHAT THE F**K!!!! Its okayyy… we didn’t want those supers anyways.
OK. In all seriousness now, we only didn’t want 1 super… or half a super… the Hel
BJD4-E (evemaps.dotlan.net/system/BJD4-E) was coming out of its final reinforce roughly 40 minutes before downtime. Being the last station system that ROL has in Feythabolis and having some historical significance, we made sure all of you knew to be there. The great thing is, a lot of you showed up (around 40 in fleet) which for prime Russian timezone, is not bad. Yes… yes… I know its Sunday… but STFU I am still proud
Of course we took all necessary precautions… checking in on internal assets of ROL and -A-, keeping an eye on the in game map, checking all of the notables on watch list, etc… While nothing pointed to any form of trap (or tarp), no fleets from our hostiles were formed, and no indication of a setup with the exception of a saber being cloaked above the station for more than 1 hour waiting… We were comfortable that all would be business as usual.
ITS A TARP!
We lit cyno, bridge goes up, supers/carriers jump, and start pew pewing the station! Cause that is so much fun! Anyways, the ROL Saber then decloaks, warps down to our cyno, and drops bubbles on the caps. At this point, it was noted that several “notable” characters had mass logged in… including ROL supers, Titans, Leadership from both ROL and -A-, and of course, the wild Makalu himself. As bubbles were going up, supers and carriers began their align to the Alliance POS in system, a hostile drake warps in and pops a cyno. In came roughly 70 hostiles, a mixture of additional bridged dictors, hictors and various support ships… and somewhere near 30 dreads… and 3 supers… and a wild Wixy (Avatar)… nuff said… It wasn’t looking for the little band of TROLLS on field.
Order was given to our Triage Archons on field for Triage: RED [GREEN]
Meanwhile, subcaps destroyed many dictors and tacklers in an attempt to free the supers. TROLL supers started grinding through hostile Dreads… but for obvious reasons didn’t get very far. The Hel died first… surprise surprise! Followed by the two Nyxes… the last Nyx managed to warp out, and the other Nyx managed to jump out. So many Nyxes!!!
Results… Not so Good…
Thanks to our hero triage carriers and hero logi pilots, we were able to keep our subcap fleet alive long enough to pop a lot of dictors… but they didn’t bring a lot of dictors, they brought a whole fleet of them! As a result of this, TWO of the FIVE supers managed to get out… I know what you are thinking… “aww its just three supers…” but lets be honest here… it could have been much worse.
Less than 10 minutes of what was left warping off field, our glorious alliance leader announced that all supers that were lost WILL BE REPLACED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. While writing this, I am on comms with the guys that are going to build them, and they are getting materials together soon ™.
So we lost some supers… shit happens. We will still use supers and carriers regularly for ops. We will continue to grind structures and take what rightfully belongs to us. What took ROL and -A- days of preparation, billions in fuel and for replacement dreads, and a hell-a-lotta banging on the batphone to bring down the mighty TROLL will be just one of those things that we get to laugh about when they are all sitting in Stain, alone, twiddling their thumbs and having lemon parties!
Keep joining fleet guys, because next time, the tarp will be on them!
