The enemy of the great Amarr empire with their roughly 90 battleships (mainly Armageddons with a sprinkling of about 10 navy apocs) and 60 support went onto a titan and cynoed out.

Hostiles jumped into Ziriert (Domain low sec) as our fleet was already there at the tower with gunners ready and our reinforcement went through Mamet into Ziriert. Dyntheos was FCing at this time while I made my way over with the reinforcements. Dynth warped fleet off and back at range on the hostile fleet which made use of forcing them to use Scorch instead of Multifrequency which lessened their dps advantage (being 90bs vs 70). Reinforcements were warped in and a cat and mouse game at station, Misaba gate and POS began where we managed to snag more battleships which included 7 bs at gate for no losses, whereas they mainly nailed our tackle. The first big one was them warping to a gridspot on tower while we sat outside shields and we decided among the FC crew (4 FCs) to let them come at what range they preferred since battleship numbers were now even. They failed miserably and landed at 40km still forcing Scorch and so close to the shields that our heavy tackle could weave in and out and kept tackle on more battleships this time. Their attrition here was pretty horrible as well.
They warped off and then back in on top of us but by then we had decided to slug it out and went close range. TIDI hit hard here going as far up as 90%. Target calling resumed and at quick speeds we popped Geddon after Geddon til they finally gave up and warped off field to Misaba gate. We cleaned the rest of the grid and went after them, catching a battleship and two guardians in Biphi before going back.
