Things heated up in E-YJ8G as a Pandemic Legion slowcat fleet got tackled in the system. Several hundred Domi’s and Tengu’s poured in system in an attempt to kill the carriers. NCdot formed a slowcat fleet of their own to respond to the threat and combined fleets with PL. This put over 160 slowcat carriers on the field against roughly 200 Domi’s and about as many Black Legion/-A- Tengus.

The carrier’s reps were holding against the sub-caps and the rest of N3 arrived in a Proteus fleet (close to 100). The slowcat fleet was able to start working on the domi’s; however several tidi minutes later Razor and Black Legion jumped in over 80 dreadnoughts in an attempt to break the carrier’s reps. They were unsuccessful and PL/NC/N3 dropped over 100 supercarriers on top of the dreads and went to work.

For several minutes in max tidi dreads were slowly dying to the supers, however pilots soon realized that everything was becoming unresponsive. Soon after, the node crashed and local went from 1200 to 800 and then shut down. N3 was quick to the login screen, as was the hostile sub-caps. Early reports stated the dreads were still on field, however once everyone re-logged it was discovered that the dreads were all gone.

The N3 Proteus fleet, however, was massacred while the capital fleet was trying to log back in, and was the most significant sub cap loss of this fight.  Around 12 dreads were killed once the supers arrived and the rest were saved by the node crash. The dreads were not able to kill any caps, though N3 did lose 3 carriers to the tengu fleet during log in.

Here is the EVE-KILL and BR-DOC reports of the fight.

There were also some interesting effects brought about from the node crash. This is the first node crash during a large fight since the Rubicon update, and some very strange things happened. First, on login the pilots from all sides emergency warped to random spots all over the system instead of back on the grid. Supers and carriers found themselves with no capacitor on initial login, though it came back once the loading was complete.

Another tragic effect though was the loss of over 1300 Fighter Bombers, which is about 48 billion ISK. This is because the fighter bombers were left on the grid because of the disconnect and did not return to the supers once they logged back in. A very small number of the super pilots reported their FBs were back in the drone bay as they should be upon a disconnect, but everyone else was left to petition their missing FB’s. This did not stop CFC forces from seizing the opportunity, though, and instead of looting the field they started to work shooting all the fighter bombers.

TiDi and large fights bring about some interesting results, and I think that CCP and TiDi were the only clear winners of this engagement. I also spoke to some FC’s in NCdot who stated they have been requesting the the nodes in the area be reinforced due to the timers coming out, but it is unknown if this has/will happen. It certainly did not appear to be helping in this fight, if it was even done.

In the end, the N3 capitals left the field and mass petitions have been filed to get back the lost fighter-bombers.

There are more fights expect all weekend as the timer board is full, so more Battle Reports could be coming, and TiDi will no doubt be seen again.

    meh

  • Duh

    Why does en24 only seek the ncdot view? Is that responsible journalism?

    • huh

      feel free to to contact people and write your own report. nobody is stopping you

    • InsideMan

      Maybe NC were the only ones to comment since op success?

    • Leicester

      TMC.com and EN24 are respectively the MSNBC and Fox news of EvE.

      So read whichever site suits your particular bias.

      • huh

        or visit both and be entertained by the ridiculous things you see, at least with en24 and tmc your are not reading about actual events that affect lives in real life.

      • Random Miner

        You mean how Fox News has twice the ratings of MSNBC?

    • Robo

      Ok well Rus/BL/CFC view of every fight…

      We massively blobbed them at least 2:1 odds. We went on to call for more help.
      More numbers poured in.

      At this point we Won/crashed node from blobbing so much/lost even though we outnumbered them/became a stand off.

      Cfc/BL/Rus perspective in majority of fights, go figure.
      This news over an over is same old boring trash, mittens can nearly make battles they have won look interesting as it’s always in the same old boring format.

      N3 however just like Dotbros bring content and something different as they are the significant underdogs. When they succeed it’s almost of against the odds and in a ballsy dearing way, same cannot be said in this war for Rus/BL and never ever CFC.

      • ProviPerson

        To be fair, the theory has been raised (and seems to hold true) that the number one cause of node crashes is mass deployment of drones rather than just ships. If that’s true, N3 dropping superblobs and running slowcat fleets does just as much if not more damage than a CFC/RUS blob. CFC running domis doesnt help mind you.

        • GrouchyOldGamer

          I predict an incoming drone nerf.

        • Guest

          And CFC fielding Dominix.

    • flatterpillo

      TMC blocks CFC alliances from contacting En24. That is why :)

    • Dumbledore

      Like it’s a big secret that Riv joined dotbros during the Tribute conflict?

  • Necromonger

    Station flipped RUS RUS objective accomplished.
    1 step closer to N3 defeat.

    • Mohamad’s Comment

      Nice spin…. i heard BL asked CFC have to pay around 200 Billion so that they continue to field caps… but ofcourse u post ur own wet dreams about whats really going on

      • GrouchyOldGamer

        Hey! We are merely honoUrable third partying fights here. But, it is fun to see all the whining that has caused.

    • Leicester

      The propaganda is strong in this one…

      I was in the Proteus fleet that logged in and got dunked after the node crash today and saw no such attitude from N3 or other members, in fact that particular fleet was rageformed at a moments notice and we had 170 waiting on the titan within 10 mins – this doesn’t strike me as a defeatist attitude pervading the coalition.

      • Necromonger

        Do CFC need propaganda ?
        When did we ever lost a war we engaged in ?
        Oh and it seems you are missing the drama in Nulli……i have a few buddy’s inthere that arent happy with shit that is going on.

        But thats ok i do not have to play spin doctor, at the end of the war RUSRUS owns your space and we get a big chunk of those renters.
        So it all plays out as planned anyway.
        No propaganda needed here m8.

        it disturbs me that you guys dont even know how your own grunts are feeling tough.
        that is abad sign or just plain ignorance :P
        But hey those arent our problems so o/

        • huh

          why didnt they leave years ago and join you then? if its soooo great and cfc is so unbeatable then why do you even bother posting? :)

        • Robo

          Why don’t you watch your own back you faggot, BL./Rus are them selves straining from stabbing each other in the back already. Old grudges being remembered squabbles breaking out.

          Cfc always needs morale boost or they don’t turn up in numbers, have you forgot Dotbros war when you scrubs significantly outnumbered us and we pasted you for almost 4 months. Cfc numbers dropped massively, mittens him self had to do the rare logg in to show face an get the bears in fleet.
          Fearless leader had to logg in lmao, could say with those few logg in he earnt the coming months rmt until next logg in.

          Necro be a good chap an carry on grinding in bombers for Mittens RL wallet. Cfc may win eve, I will still be laughing at the mugs in cfc for being so blind and dillusional of what their actual purpose is, nothing more than a cash cow for mittens, that makes many empire dwellers smug let alone the last of the 2 free coalitions :)

    • True story

      Bad propaganda, station flipped back to N3 after two hours, at the end you only lost
      lot of dreads (you know, they are going to finish…). Morale in N3 is really high, especially
      with such juicy kills!
      I leave this here just as reminder:

    • Robo

      Your so bad, go deep throat a shotgun and do everyone a favour.

  • Robo

    So cute watching CFC enslave/make pets out of Rus.

    I knew a time when Russians would never have touched cfc with a barge pole, doing so usually ment Rus fleets would never fill to help cfc.
    Thing is there majority of Rus have always had cfc as the mortal enemy, which makes Rus being cfc pets that much cuter ;)

    • Mom

      Hold it.. Hold it.. REDSWARM FED OMG WTF

      • Robo

        Far history a blip, and that was goons leaching on to as per usual minipulate and blob for there own cause.
        The other 90% of the time every Rus except RMT solar have had Goons/cfc as their mortal enemy.
        If/when the war is concluded this will be remembered. Propaganda and bullshit is fogging reality recently, so let it be.

    • Necromonger

      Eh ?
      Dig a little deeper there newb…..

      Redswarm Federation called, Rus and Goons have a long long history together.
      Even Pathetic Legion was there inthose days.
      But i gues you werent around ? :)

      Seems you missed the great wars of eve completely and was prolly still playing World of Warcraft ?

      • Robo

        Ancient history…where did you read up about that?
        Your bitter enough to have played that long, but far too retarded, would expect more from a player of that age. On the other hand you being a cfc grunt shows you are mentally challenged at the best of times so it is possible, but improbable.

  • Robo

    Cfc would have been better off scooping all the FBs selling them, then giving the isk to On Benifits Legion so they can field dreads more :)

    Since petition will reimburse the FBs anyway.
    Again cfc wasting their grunts time, ahhhhh win win, “back in a bomber with you, you got to grind systems for my RL wallet” quotation from mittens thoughts lol

    • Barkaway

      do you know how much space 1 FB takes? I guess its a matter of space issues..

      • Robo

        It’s called sarcasm…

    • CCPisTHEbossGoodLuck

      yea good luck with the reimbursed, i am absolutely sure they won’t be reimbursed because they were in fact not lost when the node crash. They were still in space. If ccp reimbursed them its like replacing something that was not lost. Have you ever got a ship replaced? You know the hull and the modules that got destroyed but not the modules that were dropped?

      • Robo

        Await the mass petition don’t get too smug before you run the race. Like many cfc like to talk the talk cannot walk the walk.

  • Necromonger

    aww so cute to see those angry faces from BoBmk 6.5 <3
    does it hurt to get penetrated from 2 sides ?
    That must be the same feeling many of N3/PL's oponents felt when they were outblobbed by hundreds of sub / caps…

    i love Eve and i love to see those elite faggots bleed to death even more.
    back to npc space for them elites <3

    • Robo

      You have issues, serious serious issues…

      Besides CFC is BOB didn’t you know.
      You probably don’t even know what BoB where did of why the meme is applied.
      Your just a scrub that jumps on the band wagon and gives reinforcement to prejudice that cfc are full of sheep. Only thing you ever prove from your comments o face palm

      • Necromonger

        CFC = bob ?
        Eh ?

        Northern Coalition – Finfleet <—–BoB <——–
        Pandemic legion – Reikoku <—— BoB <———

        Its ok Robo let it all out buddy point to finger to CFC and say that are the bad guys if that makes feel warm and fuzzy inside.
        Fact remains we dint absorb BoB, you guys did.

        o/

        • Robo

          Cfc has become far worse than BoB lol.
          Cfc contradicts its meme of BoB more an more over the years.
          Cfc swore never to rent space yet they have just like BoB,
          They are worse in every way.
          The difference is at least BoB would say fuck it and fight when ever where ever.
          Cfc have to make a story up for their sheep to believe to reinforce anything they do, cfc only hit opponents in belief that they have their opponent well an cruelty outnumbered.
          Cfc do not want GFs their leadership doesn’t give a fuck about them as grunts, as long as you keep secure cfc space and grind what Mittens wants you to grind then he’s a happy bunny milking the rmt tete, and the sheep are happy grinding & getting scraps.

          This will never change for cfc, at least BoB came to an end lol

      • RBW

        Robo are you saying that the CFC is bad because we have levels of command and those in lower levels actually listen to commanders? This means that your side doesn’t I assume? Well no wonder the CFC will win this war. You are all too much concerned about individual ego than working together as a unit. Enjoy low-sec space.

        P.S. Don’t be mad bro we are just a third party here. lol

        Regards,

        your friendly tear collector

  • BigSako

    1 titan vs 100 dreads – I think we are now even on node crashes.

    Btw did anybody notice that the 90 “sniper” dreads did not manage to volley a thanatos? Sniper dread theory broken much?

  • Gandalf

    Another nod crash! Many more to come?

  • ><a1N

    Best to play Eve with at least Petition Level 4. If you feel real keen you can get Level 5 for a further 5% of non-effect.

  • Shadowblade1436

    when only 1200 breaks the node… Ya, I say CCP needs to fix this ASAP. 1200 for a station fight is normal. And when you think about is, 500+ sub caps, and 80 dreads was unable to break the tanks of 160 carriers, meaning it would take an even bigger blob than that to kill them. At this rate it would be impossible to kill a blob of carriers, as any counter blob you drop will crash the node. :(
    CCP FIX THIS!!

  • Northernvet

    Fuck sakes man I lost over 30 Fighter bombers in this (I jumped in 2
    nyxes) not happy tbh. I can afford to replace them easily (if my petition does not work) but grr, I have to replace them all now and that take some time when you cant simply buy
    from station and stick them in your drone bay

    Anyway GF shame the dreads all got away though could have been looking at alot of dead
    dreads right there or maybe a few dead supercarriers who knows?

  • Yoji

    So (Super)Cap blob and TiDi win again i guess. Still not resubbing

  • CCPisTHEbossGoodLuck

    too bad the petition will not go through for the fighter bombers. Reason is that 1) the fighter bombers were in fact not lost but still in space 2) they have the opportunity to loot the fighter bombers 3) its like getting your ship reimbursed, the stuff that were left in your wrecks aren’t reimbursed only the hull and the modules that were destroyed GG 48 b gone

    • Robo

      Not necessarily, will wait an see what happens to the mass petition.
      Game mechanics did not work as they where supposed to, so N3/PL have a fair shout at getting them back in some way shape or form.

      Regardless they can easily be replaced.
