Supercapital kills are becoming more and more mainstream as the overall skillpoint pool and wealth of EvE Online increases over the years. It’s not out of the ordinary to see a nyx kill on the killboards as of recently. This particular Nyx kill is interesting tho.
There has been a lot of discussion regarding the new N3 coalition and the HBC. A lot of people see N3 as a “pet” or “blue” to the HBC. Standings reports and such have shown the exact opposite. This kill also goes against the alleged blue status of the two Coalitions.
Out of Sight has had blue standings with the HBC for quite some time. There is no word whether or not this alliance is a part of the HBC or not but it appears they are “blue” with Test and friends. There is also unconfirmed rumors that the HBC will protect any Sov that OOC obtains.
This is where the possible “Catalyst” comes into play.
N3 has stated they are interested in Tenerefis. Alliances such as Mildly Intoxicated, The Kadeshi, Nexus and Echoes of Nowhere have already obtained some sov in Tenerefis.
So, the stage is set. OOS is gobbling up Sov in Tenerefis, a region N3 has shown Interest in. If the rumor mill runs true, then HBC will protect OOS Sov, sparking battles between N3 and the HBC.
Nothing is set in stone as of yet, but the wheels appear to be shedding the rust and grinding into movement.
Let’s see how this plays out.

A bait dread was sent in to pound on the TCU I believe. Minimal support was sent in with the dread. This is the point OOS jumped in with a few Battleships and the Nyx. Once OOS loaded grid, a cyno was dropped and the rest of the N3 subcap fleet bridged in. The resulting battle was very one sided:
