Fidelas Constans was returning from a POS shoot when they arrived in VFK-IV (Deklein) and found their capital system besieged with enemy activity. A good brawl ensued. Here is our raw mini-report.
This was a fight FCON had with a whole bunch a dudes in VFK after we were returning from a POS shot in Venal. VOC also should up and we got some revenge for the four carriers they killed from us in K-8. One of my alliance mates made this video of the battle and I thought it was really good.
Here is the result of the 4 hour long brawl:
The Verge of Collapse guys sent us the following battle report:
Ok this is VoC side of the story:
We decided to put together something else what we normally fly. And this time we went with arty loki setup. While we didn’t had any good exits to nullsec we still formed up. And because nobody in real mind had lokis bought we got only 20 people in gang. After hour or so forming we got this number up with around 30. Same time we rage collapsed couple of times until we had some nullsec exits. One was in random drone space other was in Pure Blind. Because of lol and people already where in the fleet we decided to go for it. Destination was 5 jumps from our exit in VFK, we also sent in offgrid booster scout who managed to get intel that some random CVA + friends where doing something there with sniper setup – arty canes??! (local was decent 50, something we could handle). As we sent in bait gang we tried to lure them into trap, but they didn’t take the bait. All the warp in spots where failure, CVA was smart and kept moving. Suddenly we had them on close range d-scan, as ready for combat we jumped our bait gang back to main gang (same time VFK local got up like 400 dudes). As hoped goons came home. So we all got back to VFK gate and jumped in.
We had CVA + friends smiling at us with Goons at range.
So at this point fight was go, odds where 6:1, but what else we could do.
Reps where not holding and lokis got alpha by both sides. As we managed to pull range odds where changing for us, but not big amount.We killed the hero pilots, but because of the armor where where still way too slow. At this time around 30min where passed we decided to pull the plug and leave. Order came in to start warping out. Some where lucky, others who got pointed where not so lucky. They knew where we came so they tried to bubble the route back to Pure Blind. We took round trip and those who got lucky managed to get home for next DotA2 match.
Side note: there was no VoC and Friends, just VoC vs. everybody.
gf, we tried something else and got burned to hell. Was good try. and to FCON, don’t smug too much, we will be back.
