With the current war being so big in size, smaller alliances often get blocked from attending by just simply being out blobbed. Provi bloc however took a nice opportunity and managed to use it to great success.

In the last few weeks, AAA alt corps started dropping sbu’s in provi systems to provoke fun fights with Provi residents. These great fights happen quite often and to return the favor a SBU was dropped by CVA in HED-GP. AAA didn’t give the fight that Provi Bloc was hoping for so they decided to poke some more.

[EDIT] Our first information appears to be incomplete. We’ve understood Provi bloc returned the favor not by dropping an SBU but by reinforcing the Cynosural Jammer in the system, which allowed N3/PL to reinforce the towers and take over the moons in the system. This was made easier by the fact that there are only 7 moons in the system and that, apparently, -A- wasn’t keeping close attention on their towers.

CVA formed a fleet and for the first time they decided to push the station into reinforcement. Nothing happened from the AAA side and when the station went into reinforce, a PL super fleet came. CVA didn’t want to get involved on any side in the current war and returned home.

Corebloodbrothers, one of the main FCs of the provi lands was searching for a good fight to be had and noticed the final timer on the HED-GP IHUB. Knowing that this would be a big fight he formed a fleet of 150 sentry fleet. This fleet was way too small to get into the big fight in HED-GP and so Coldbloodbrothers took his fleet into F4R- (Staging system of AAA). While flying towards F4R- they noticed a Carrier jumping into F4R-, this may sound normal but this carrier first warped to a ping, then warped back to finally enter the pos. This spiked his interest so Corebloodbrothers ordered his prober to get the ping location and shortly warped his fleet to the ping.

While this was happening, the fight in HED-GP kicked off and CFC + Stainwagon were starting to get in trouble. Some of those members realised that death was their future and so tried to get home. They jumped out of HED- into F4R- and while not paying attention to local warped themselves to the ping that they got off their FC, meaning that they would get a warm welcome home by CVA. After the first dreads died, AAA FC alphastarpilot noticed what was happening and started screaming at their members. This number of capital kills got the CVA a well deserved blood rush and sure enough they started paying visits to other staging system killing capitals each time they got into a system.

While moving around, both N3 and CFC/RUS/Stainwagon formed fleets to kill them, with it becoming too hostile CVA decided to go home.

A quote from Corebloodbrothers describing CVA

Provi is on its own and thats how we like it


Video of CVA’s Side:

In my opinion this tactic that CVA used is perfect for smaller alliance / coalitions like CVA. Often bigger alliances get too focused on their tasks at hand and simply wont notice that 20 to 150 man fleet thats killing their reinforcements or stragglers. Big shoutout to them from my part!

    You can probably replace every instance of CVA in this article with “Provi-bloc”. CVA is one of many players in Providence these days 🙂 Additionally, we did not actually SBU HED-GP, we just came to take some pot shots at the station and then when nothing happened we went on to incap the JB and the cynojammer (-A- seemed to be busy elsewhere or maybe it wasn’t quite their TZ, I dunno). As we left a cyno went up and PL came in and the rest is history I suppose.

    The dreads we killed in F4R were strange, I don’t think most of us understood what they were doing there and after killing about 8 (and getting our probers killed by N3 guys) we figured we should probably head back and not antagonize RUS/CFC too much.

      Also it should be mentioned that we were ticked off by -A- dropping SBU’s in Y-M 3 days in a row outside of our TZ, which is what set this whole thing in motion. Those -A- guys have now mysteriously joined PL…

      Provi-bloc is more than just CVA? What is this madness you speak of?
      The best part is where they list that Core is a Provi FC then go back to it being CVA.

      The thing is: everyone knows CVA, noone knows any of their pets.

      If you say provi-Bloc, everyone thinks “what is Proviblock ? .. … … aaaaaah CVA”.
      So yeah, CVA and Provi-Bloc are synonymous.

I guess some people over at -A- already forgot how they were begging Molle’s and IT’s help back in the days. Please dude , everybody knows Volt from before they went to Providence. And even back then, everybody used to say that * drum roll * -A- is shit.

      I asked my newbie friend over at Provi and he says you’re right. You are indeed looking to get fights from Volt. However he’s saying that your tz doesn’t go well with Volt’s tz. So what basically happens is you enter their system when they have just a few guys who are willing to fight in an uncoordinated way, while you are nowhere to be found when their main pvp branch is up and running, due to the time zone difference. So I feel you there. What I don’t feel though is all the hate that my buddy tells me you guys have. Shit talkiing in local? Trashing their newbies? Killing their industrialists and telling them they suck? Really?

      Maybe you are new at -A- but the vets in your alliance should remember Volt providing shelter to their supers when they were evaccing Catch. They should remember Volt granting them neut status for them to be able to evac smaller stuff without being harassed. They should also remember some pretty good fights they had been given in the past as well as Volt bombers freeing up an Archon we tackled in e-y ( back then it was still a mildly system ). Your memory is selective, your hubris over the top. And this is -A-‘s curse. They get bitchslapped around, they get back on their feet, only to do the same mistakes that led them to getting bitchslapped again.

      So friendly advice, do not hate on provibears. They are bad, they are trying to get better and they live in the most fun region of the game. Also don’t get so mad when you lose shit to them. Listen to them on those comms and tell me that this isn’t a bunch of guys having fun. And I’ll remind you in case you’ve forgotten… fun is what it’s all about.

          hold? hmmm different kinds of hold no?? Take for instance when pl took Kbp, after the first few weeks pl offered to rent it back. after a few more weeks pl offered to let us use the space after a few more weeks they asked for a buy out after a few more weeks they left and -7- held the field. So hold means different things. If you mean hold sov continuously against all commers? then your right. If you mean make it a bloody mess that forces people to leave so that we can return to our home systems then yes we can hold.

            That’s a laugh. Most people in Provi do not defend Provi. it’s always the same 100+ guys in fleets
            Most players living in Provi carry on bearing even during CTA’s.
            My Former corp in CVA callled itself a pfp corp. yet often in CTA’s there would be maximum 2 or 3 corp members in fleets including myself, while the rest just carried on runiing forsaken hubs.
            That being said, it’s great to see Provibloc kicking -A- in the teeth.

Remember everything that led up to it. Especially remember your actions that created this special moment in history.

    And let’s also remember that their actions created this opportunity for you to inflict significant hurt on your enemies…and you failed on a massive fucking level.

    So wipe away your tears of nerdrage and avert your adolescent threats of reprisals for they matter little. It only serves to highlight your weakness to your real enemies.
