In the early hours of Friday morning Goonswarm attempted to drop a station in 1P-WGB. N3PL and SniggWaffe pilots spent hours tracking a Goonswarm freighter moving through a number of titans in the Catch region. From the movements of the freighter they concluded a station was going to be dropped by Goonswarm somewhere in the region before downtime.
The freighter pilot in question tequilasunrise was bridged into a cyno in 1P- where a N3PL cyno alt was watching resulting in the quick termination of the freighter and the egg it was carrying. This is another blow for the combined CFCRUS coalition having just lost fourteen super carriers only hours earlier.
Mitanni was quick to shift the blame away from himself and onto a junior Goonswarm manager.
At 1:17am my time, I give the abort order:
(1:16:49 AM) Gossamer DT: then push the plan and guard the egg I guess
(1:16:56 AM) the_mittani: nah
(1:16:58 AM) the_mittani: i have bad feels
(1:17:00 AM) Gossamer DT: deploy modil jammers
(1:17:01 AM) the_mittani: we all have bad feels
(1:17:04 AM) Innominate: with a cyno jammer, there is no real risk of the egg being killed
(1:17:05 AM) the_mittani: let’s listen to our intuition here
(1:17:11 AM) Innominate: Without a cyno jammer, they can kill the egg.
(1:17:19 AM) Gossamer DT: I am on the delay side completely
(1:17:22 AM) the_mittani: we can wait until we get the tcu and the jammer up
(1:17:27 AM) kcolor: get it into system, then make the decision
(1:17:46 AM) Innominate: if we dont have sov when we drop the egg, aa sov fuckup can mean losing the whole system
(1:17:51 AM) the_mittani: i’ve made the decision. we wait until we have the jammer. today feels wrong
(1:18:13 AM) the_mittani: let’s not throw an egg after 13 rus supers
Yesterday was an expensive blip in what otherwise has been a relatively quiet week with RUSCFC block being largely inactive and making very little progress.
