Last night CFC forces with the help of BL clashed with N3 and PL forces in G-OQ86 in the curse region. The fleet compositions were as follows: Black legion (BL) in ~125 Zealots, Goonswarm federation (CONDI) in ~200 Dominixs, an assortment of CFC alliances in Dominixs and interceptors ~ 300, Razor alliance (-RZR-) in ~50 Tornados, an assortment of CFC alliances in bombers ~80. VS Northern coalition. (NC) in ~110 lokis, Pandemic legion (PL) in ~120 Proteii, an assortment of N3 forces (mainly Nulli Secunda (S2N)) in Proteii ~60, an assortment of N3 forces in ishtars ~50, an assortment of N3 forces in ~75 bombers/interceptors, N3 + PL also committed ~10 triage carriers and ~20 dreads.
Black legion had formed up early in a zealot fleet hoping to draw a fight from N3. NC. hearing of this formed up a loki fleet to counter the zealots. As they were forming good numbers NC. received Intel from one of their scouts informing them of a Goonswarm federation titan in a POS nearby, a POS which they had the password for. Forgetting the zealots, NC. headed straight for the titan and ordered 2 machariels to attempt to bump the titan out of the POS. The goonswarm titan was quick to change the POS password though which sent the machariels hurtling out of the POS right into the jaws of a recently landed goonswarm dominix fleet. The goonswarm fleet bubbled up to catch the machariels and managed to kill one but at the same time they had managed to bubble their entire fleet. Nc. took this opportunity to warp onto field and began brawling with the goonswarm fleet. The rest of the N3 and PL forces warped onto the scene with 10 triage carriers and 10 dreadnoughts with them, goonswarm quickly disengaged and headed to the station to replenish their drones. Black legion then entered system and began engaging the N3 forces, reinforcements had arrived from CFC alliances by this point and so the goonswarm fleet undocked and warped onto the battlefield for round 2.Initially things were looking bleak for N3, their blap dreads were being heavily neuted reducing their capabilities drastically. Black legion were struggling to break the tank of PL’s Proteii and so they switched over to the blap dreads, with relatively good success. PL at this point decided to commit another 10 or so dreadnoughts to the fight in a last ditch attempt to turn the fight around in their favour. With the added fire-power of the dreadnoughts the fight began to swing in N3’s favour as they managed to destroy dominix after dominix. Black legion disengaged and headed home, leaving the CFC forces to fend for themselves. With Black legion gone the CFC forces tried to disengage but many were caught in bubbles and were quickly killed.
The eve-kill boards have not tracked this fight very well but approximately 120b isk was destroyed in last nights festivities. Despite being outnumbered 800 to 500 N3 managed to hold the field and even kill 285 ships while only losing 156.
