A leak has revealed that the CFC’s SpaceMonkey’s Alliance (SMA) will be deploying to Delve by the end of the week in order to harass the HBC. The 2600 strong alliance based in Branch will be staging out of NPC Delve in 0N-3RO – within four jumps of the TEST staging system NOL-M9 and within 5 jumps of Querious.
The leak, which comes in the form of a deployment order, made it clear that the deployment would be limited in its scope, and that SMA has a number internal issues they hope the deployment will sort out.
Your target is HBC no structures under ANY circumstances are to be attacked this includes Towers Stations IHUBs SBU TCU and anything else [sic]
As a result, all capitals and battleships are being left at home, and the approved fleet doctrines are clearly intended to harass. Approved doctrines include cloaky ships – though without BLOPS support, mixed tier 3 BCs, as well as T1 and T2 AHAC doctrines without triage support.
The deployment will also mark the roll-out of a HAM Caracal doctrine SMA is calling Zombie Fleet, which takes advantage of the Retribution changes to the Caracal. The Caracal backbone will be supported by Cerberus-capable pilots and T1 logistics. This will be the primary doctrine used in Delve.
SMA leadership emphasized the need for its pilots to train into the T2 HAM Caracals as it is the direction the entire CFC intends to move in.
Logistically, the deployment presents a challenge to SMA pilots. The leak revealed that leadership is expressly forbidding the use of capital chains.
Noting there are ZERO capitals being deployed the above doctrines are going to be near impossible to move – you may short bus the 65 jumps should you wish you may encourage members to repurchase and ship to the area (jita and amarr are within 30 jumps) however there will be NO capital chain into the deployment zone [sic]
Once in the deployment zone, they will be operating out of the station in 0N-3RO as well as two large POS’s in 0N-3RO and PR-8CA – one jump from NOL-M9.
The overall tone of the leak suggests that SMA has been struggling with motivational issues among others, as seen in this excerpt:
The above is NOT negotiable its time for us as fcs to lift the crux we have on certain doctrines and learn how to fly others […] I don’t want to hear ANY more pissing and moaning about the doctrines being deployed or how you don’t like the deployment or any of that shit – that time is OVER you had your chance above to comment on doctrines ive taken it under advise and made the call [sic]
The alliance kill board also supports the idea that SMA may have hit a rough patch – with efficiencies around the 50% mark since November of last year.
Here is the full leak:
As this is currently fleet sensitive information you will be asked to keep this to yourself
SMA Deployment is into Delve/Quirious to fuck with HBC in particular test
The Deployment System will be – 0n-3ro
Corp Offices are available at a limited supply
There will be no Caps deployed – this includes titans
There will be NO Battleships Deployed this includes Welp Fleet and Black ops
The following Doctrines are AUTHORIZED to be deployed
Ghost Fleet – Negative Black Ops at this stage
Spec Ops Fleet – Same as above
Tornaga Fleet – Dictor Screens are a must
Baby Hac Fleet
Ahac Fleet – Negative Triage Support
Monkey Swarm – This is to be changed and will remove drakes and insert HAM Caracals and Cerberus and be renamed to ZOMBIE Fleet for this engagement only at this stage – doctrine page will soon reflect and includes T1 Scythe as its logi support
Noting there are ZERO capitals being deployed the above doctrines are going to be near impossible to move – you may short bus the 65 jumps should you wish you may encourage members to repurchase and ship to the area (jita and amarr are within 30 jumps) however there will be NO capital chain into the deployment zone
The above is NOT negotiable its time for us as fcs to lift the crux we have on certain doctrines and learn how to fly the others
I have asked the Market Department to supply a FUCK load of the Zombie fleet to the deployment system
The HAM Caracal needs to be embraced and encouraged as this is soon to become a CFC initiative deployment if they cant use t2 encourage them to train but at this stage its not forced
200 Fitted Caracals are currently being shipped and contracted up from the alliance Executor corp
50 Scythes are being shipped for contract to the deployment zone
Bubbles are being purchased and will be placed into the EXPCS hanger should you need them ask an officer or council member
There will be 2 Large Control Towers Deployed into the area for deploying in and out of should more be needed at a later stage you are to inform your TPC and they will contact the relevant department to have more deployed
0N-3RO – 1 x large Death Star (Planet & Moon TBA)
PR-8CA – 1 x Large Death Star (Planet & Moon TBA)
Overall this is the first month of the new FC pay system – this means because we have ZERO strat ops you need to complete 2 Roams per week to qualify for pay – this is the PERFECT time to achieve that
I dont want to hear ANY more pissing and moaning about the doctrines being deployed or how you dont like the deployment or any of that shit – that time is OVER you had your chance above to comment on doctrines ive taken it under advise and made the call
You need to accept that this deployment is designed to test YOU as FC’s and your ability to follow through as well as the monkey combat arm
You have stated time and time again we need gud fights now go out and find them
SMA will be told of the system within 24 hours
Your target is HBC no structures under ANY circumstances are to be attacked this includes Towers Stations IHUBs SBU TCU and anything else
Your job to create fleets and FUN content for the monkeys who come – i want no emo raging because your fleet has 6 ppl in it instead undock and go welp them like a champion
All Space Monkey Alliance Fleet Commanders are to be deployed to the Deployment zone and system before 0001 Friday eve time
Whether this deployment will serve as a rallying cry for the alliance or result in some less desirable outcome remains to be seen. SMA leadership is also rolling out a new FC pay system, which (it can be assumed) they hope will encourage activity and participation, and ultimately improve their dismal kill board.
Within the greater perspective of CFC-HBC hostilities, could it be that Mittens is throwing all his second-tier alliances at Montolio to keep him busy with proxy wars? Will it be enough to quench the thirst for blood Montolio was displaying before his leave of absence?
