With the announcement of The CFC finally going into full deployment mode in their latest GSF CEO update, the stage was set for a fight between N3 and CFC/Stainwagon forces. DY-P7Q tonight lit up as numbers in local climbed up to nearly 1700+ with carriers, dreadnoughts, and titans alike bridging into the system. In all nearly 2700 players took part in the havoc (battle report) that was wrecked not only on each other, but the node itself causing it to crash. As you’d expect after a node crashing, capitals stayed logged out except for a small fleet of dreads which tried to kill a titan and failing.
The premiere of The CFC’s “Omegafleet” tonight while at first seemed effective started to slow down as the fight continued. 300 CFC/Stainwagon dreads were on grid in a great show of force, but when it became clear that it wasn’t going to be enough the tactics changed.
I personally had a few streams up and heard CFC members shifting their focus onto crashing the node so they could safely extract themselves from the field later. A smart move in order to save a fleet, but it’s a strategy that will only last for so long. In the end The CFC and Stainwagon left the field leaving N3 and PL to loot the spoils of bloc warfare.
With more CFC forces heading down south to help assist in this war it’s a safe bet that there will be more fights just like this one. Will N3 and PL be able to stand up to the challenge before the CFC ramps up their war machine to full strength and beat them back, or will they buckle and give up in the face complete annihilation?
We shall all see soon enough!
