For those living under a rock, this summary of yesterday’s events are very concise and, as far as I can tell, accurate.


B-R is in a region currently involved in the ongoing war, and had been used by PL/N3 as a forward staging ground in this conflict for their fleet. Allies of N3/PL Nuilla Secunda (S2N) were found to have failed to maintain their sovereignty over the system, and once discovered by the Russian alliances affiliated with CFC, the attack began. RUS forces first established a foothold, sending a fleet in and capturing the system station preventing access to anyone from N3/PL. They then began contesting control of the system with their own TCU (Territorial Control Unit) while attempting to eradicate the S2N’s own TCU.

As things tend to do in Eve, it quickly escalated. N3/PL brought forth their full force against the RUS, trying to end the battle before it begun by removing the RUS forces and restoring control of the system. Before they could do this, CFC forces arrived and a full on battle begun. 

Trading blows hour after hour, Not only the reported Titans were being destroyed on both sides, but super-carriers, dreadnaughts and carriers all descended upon this system to reinforce both sides fleets. 

After numerous hours of fighting, the gap between the losses became insurmountable for N3/PL and while for a time it had been a one for one loss on titans, the scales tipped in the favour of CFC who continued to take down these colossal ships while minimising their own losses. 

The TCU finally online, N3/PL ordered a retreat and while this is being typed now, CFC and its allies are still chasing down and destroying the remnants of the N3/PL forces. 

As previously shown, the real world cost of these galactic exploits can be assessed, and thus far several trillion ISK of damage has been done, approximately equating to $300,000, with an unconfirmed 60+ Titans lost from the N3/PL fleet and 30+ from the CFC side along with numerous other smaller ships. The previous largest battle, (Uemon), saw 12 Titans destroyed and 1 Trillion ISK of damage in comparison, so at this time this has been the largest Battle both for Damage value and Titan loss in EVE history. 

CFC appear to have won the battle of BR-5RB, but for the time being the war rages on.

It took a perfect storm of events for this battle to occur.

First off, you needed a “surprise” battle. Its not coincidence that most of the biggest battles in EVE happen via a sudden unexpected (a least by one side) turn of events. Battles like Asakai, but not such much like 6VDT-H. Preparation and second thoughts tends to make one cautious and allow the weaker side time to realize they are weaker and going to lose, but spontaneous battles are much more up for grabs by the bold and leads to escalation very quickly, especially in the age of Time Dilation where it is easy to reinforce and much harder to extract.

Secondly, you need two large coalitions with roughly equal forces not only in terms of pilot numbers but also in terms of super capital assets with which to throw at each other. No one is going to throw their super capital forces at an enemy they know can escalate beyond retaliation.

Thirdly, you need massively rich core organizations. Not only a lot of pilots, but a lot of pilots who can afford super capitals and not be afraid to lose them. It doesn’t matter how your core organization/pilots got rich, either through space capitalism or space communism, you just need the ISK.

Fourthly, the servers need to handle the load and not crash before the bulk of the causalities start rolling in. Out of all the factors involved in allowing yesterday’s fight, this was the biggest surprise and I’d love to hear how it came about. Were the number of pilots more manageable? If so, why? Did drone fleets not get deployed? Did the combatants tell small sub cap fleet pilots to stay home? Did CCP do something different? I’d be willing to bet the same battle would not have happened on a weekend.

Regardless, a battle like BR-5RB was inevitable as the massive coalitions in null sec continue to stockpile ever increasing amounts of super capital assets, and thus a willingness to deploy them to a pitched fight. The first factor is a bit of a random draw and BR-5RB had the added bonus of not only being a surprise fight but one with stakes for both sides on the line: for Pandemic Legion and friends, a massive capital fleet was in that station that they could not evacuate before getting locked out; for CFC and their Russian allies, a chance to lock said assets down and knock a serious blow to the enemy in the long war.

In the end, this battle will be remembered as one of the most exciting things of 2014 and while I’m glad I didn’t have to suffer through the tidi I am sad I was not a part of it. Now we have the rest of the week to see the analysis and the outcome of this huge fight.

      This was ultimately the key to the fight. And I think you will see this happening more often in the future. Spreading fights out is the easiest way to avoid soul crushing lag.
      How do you do that as an attacker?
      Attack your objective and use your numerical advantage to make it difficult for your enemy to out blob you at the point of attack by heading him off in his staging systems and the approaches to the objective.
      I think this is the new way of Null Sec warfare going forward and the size of CFC/RUS is going to make it very difficult to counter effectively.

        One more thing. According Zkillboard stats. 310 Titans have been killed in Eve, and 60 of them died yesterday. Now I don’t think this is a full count, but taken in context the titan loss yesterday is 19.4% of all Titans lost. That’s staggering when you think about it.
        Also, Avavtar and Erebus Titans are the predominant Titans killed on Zkillboard 104 Avatars kill in total with 17 dying yesterday and 132 Erebuses (sp?) killed in total with 31 dying yesterday.
        Amazing.

          1/2 of the Titans & SCs involved in the battle came from Non-CFC entities.
          While the B0tlord agreement will protect PL from CFC’s cap-fleet, it won’t them from RUS-BL.
          After this battle, N3PL’s capital fleet is too crippled to even fight RUS-BL’s capital fleet alone.

      this ‘war’ is really just warming up. that fight was the whistle for half time.
      i’d say overall the score is about 1-1.
      the cfc (referred to now as man united) fans all think they should be 4-0 up, but don’t realise that scoring an equaliser late in the first half isn’t actually winning the game.
      n3 (like an underdog crystal palace) scored early in the game, but kind of went to sleep there for a while and let man u back into it when the ref dropped his whistle.
      palace fans are currently working on a new song to out sing the man u fans just in the second half. man u fans cant sing very well but really want to learn to dance like the happy mondays.
      man u feel lost as a team, they cant understand why they were 1-0 down to palace and were lucky to get the equaliser. their game plan appears confused, at best, under the the new management
      palace are loving the early goal advantage they held for a while and continue to push forward using a 2-3-5 formation against a lacklustre 4-4-2 man u formation. palace are playing like they have nothing to lose.
      full time predictions: palace 3-2 or 2-2 draw

    **TL:DR warning!**

    Without a doubt, this was a decisive battle for not only this war, but the next war that N3PL would be involved as well. I don’t see how N3PL is going to make a comeback after making sustaining huge losses.

    It wasn’t the losses of their staging system (That just adds more pain) that was the big issue, but the destruction of their capital fleet. In addition to the actual asset losses, the psychological blow to N3PL’s super pilots is tremendous. I highly doubt we’ll see more than 15 Titans deployed from N3PL’s side in any battle for a while… Their Supercarrier fleet participation will likely plummet as well.

    The big question is. What will happen now???
    -Most likely, CFC-RUS will freely use their super-capitals in addition to regular capitals to blitz-nuke N3PL’s sov in the next few weeks (Or even next few days). N3PL will find themselves in a similar situation when SOLAR’s space was invaded by N3PL. Oh the irony.
    -It is highly likely that we will never see N3PL’s wrecking ball fleet. The concept of this fleet requires full capital supremacy, which N3PL just lost from this battle.
    -If they do form a wrecking-ball fleet, nothing is stopping CFC-RUS from dropping ~150 Titans to get easy capital kills. N3PL already lost 2/3 of their active Titans from this battle, and the remainder will become reluctant to commit themselves to any capital escalation.
    -N3PL will lose huge amounts of territories in the coming weeks. Will likely capitulate in few months maximum. Fortunately for PL, the B0tlord agreement will spare them from the might of CFC’s capital fleet. Unfortunately for everyone else in N3 (NC., Nulli, & Insidious), they will get wiped off the map.

      3. don’t expect the CFC to be fielding that many titans ever again. We don’t really like using supers. They are always a last last resort. We will go back to using subs like before and dreads on occasion.

      From what I’ve seen, only relevant losses were titans and dreads. Both sides lost a ton and regardless, replacing that much is more than a drop in the bucket.

      N3PL has not lost 2/3 of their active titans. PL alone, lost about 40 or so. They still have 90 active titans. Thats more like 1/3.

      You will not see wrecking ball go away. The fleet comp is focused on Supercarriers, Carriers, and dreads. Not titans. It will likely not be deployed, however, until CFC/RUS has already committed their subs.

        N3PL were Rage-pinging for Titan reinforcements for at least 8 hours covering prime EU-TZ & US-TZ before deciding to extract. Titan pilots usually active during those times most likely heeded to the CTA.

      You really don’t understand how many titans N3/PL have… nor the amount of isk they have. PL alone could cover the losses out of there wallet. This is a speed bump at most since they have already replaced the majority of titans lost with ones in reserve. PL especially has been waiting for someone to challenge them at this level, so they can see what to expect and how to counter it. Props to CFC for actually taking a fight and giving everyone a good time.

      1. DrkyDrky

        Even if they replaced most of the lost Titans, psychological effect is another thing to consider. This battle had two affects on both sides. For PL, they believed that their supercapital fleet was invincible and thus, its members were willing to use it. For CFC-RUS, they too believed that PL’s supercap fleet was invincible, until this battle.

        As a result, we’re likely to see a surge of super-capital fleet participation in the CFC-RUS side while N3PL’s super-capital fleet participation will plummet.

          They did never think their super fleet was “invincible” so stop pulling ‘facts’ made of shit outa your ass. Not to say that it won’t hurt either side, but PL does predict situations such as these. To be one of the top tier alliances in the game means to forecast a stormy loss and prepare for the worst. The war is not over, friend. Think again and stop sperging shit on your victory lap.

          LOL the cap comms were laughing and joking about their reserve fleet finally being useful. there was literally not one angry pilot. They now have seen CFC cards and I believe that CFC will have a harder time replacing ships if these kinds of fights go on. With the current state of FA falling apart, Russians almost broke, and BL whelping every cap fleet they get their hands on I dont see N3/PL as weak by any means. There is a reason they say no poors in PL.

    7. during the fight Mr Vee said something along the lines of, after this we are never using supers again. It was really out of the CFC’s comfort zone to use supers like that. So i expect we will go back to the risk adverse siege fleet.

    First of all, yesterday was ‘bring your kids to work’ day at PL/N3. This was a planned, fun event to show our kids EVE Online. ALl the Titan losses have been planned for a long time to promote online gaming and give kids something to remember. My little Billy had a blast piloting Titan for the first time.

    the original CFC domi fleet was told not to use drones when N3PL escalated as CFC leadership didnt want to risk node crash instead they were to neut enemy caps. All sub caps that formed up after that were to go to other hostile staging systems to stop any possible reinforcements getting to the battle

    This wasn’t a knockout blow. The only questions are:

    How’s morale since there’s no real ‘spin’ you can put on this? The good fighters (and yeah they have some) know stuff went down, they went in, the situation went south and they fought well-no apologies. I can respect that – anything less (blame tidi, blobbing-servers, el nino or the easter bunny) is pretty terrible, though.

    How’s logistics going to hold up on both sides? Guaranteed LOTS of capital parts are going in the oven all over EVE… way more than 36 hours ago.

    Will they go for round two in the near term? A similar situation happening again, while unlikely isn’t beyond the realm of possibilities and could well be the death knell.

          Actually everyone was calm, amused as they came to grips with loses and created extraction plans. They managed to get at least 1 titan out and beyond that there was a lot of comedy and laughing. There were no excuses given.

          Especially funny was Maka’s sub expiring while he was in a tight spot (with Titan) . The game kicked him – he yelled “Ack, Goodfight!” and laughed at himself as did everyone else. I think he paid and got back into the titan under siege.

            Most N3 pilots are pretty veteran. They know the risks going in. They’ve been here before. They’ve won some lost some. This was just a battle not the war and they understand that. So while no celebrations of course, but also no crying and blaming and pointing fingers.

            My alliance was just “Ok guys funs over back to grinding structures.”

            Guess it was similar to Black Legion losing their MOMs, but we have a tradition of hating our enemies enough to push through and try for revenge later.

            PL has a long tradition of making deals and sitting on the sideline when they lose too much, while NCdot has a history of finding something interesting somewhere else when things go wrong. So will these two surprise and come back stronger, or will they do like tradition shows them to have done and pussy out and cut deals and abandon allies.

      The nulli alliance meeting kind of contradicts this statement. “This wasn’t a knockout blow.” As they have told people to evac “Deep into our space” , “not to count on wrecking ball fleets” and to “Get ready for sub cap fights” they have bailed on their staging system abandoned their winning fleet comp and changed out titans for sub caps, which part of that is not a knock out?

    This is more of a speed bump, remember the previous battles were decisively in N3s favor and they were up by 1T. Now they are down by roughly (PL down by 4.3T) = (59-16 ) *100B(rough cost of Tit). 4.3T – 1T(Head Job ahead) = N3 3.3T down in comparison to the CFC/RUS
    My guess is any alliance like N3 has at least 2 dozen reserve Tits built therefore = 59-24 = 35 new Tits need to be secured. Now from cash reserves and new builds they can prob build 5 Tits a month, 35/5 = 7 months to recover fully.

    There could be a wild factor where N3 has 59 Tits in reserve already built which if they were putting their rental income to good use over the years then is possible they may indeed have that number. This doesn’t account any player wallet contributions, since most of these cap dudes have reserve cash like myself for replacing their our own supers or at least a good chunk of it.

    1. it is not so much as a tactical victory as more of a physiological victory for the CFC. Even as a CFC grunt i would of never imagined taking on PL with our own supers and winning. If someone told me about this battle a few months ago I would of laughed and said that is crazy talk. This battle shattered the view the PL’s super fleet is invincible.

      Ships can always be replaced but the feeling of being vulnerable is hard to fix.

        Lets recap a lil.

        The start of this war and reasons behind it.
        1. Last year CFC realized their regions were poor and wanted TEST’s space
        2. CFC got TEST’s space but took offense that N3 interfered here and there
        3. CFC realized that they were actually quite poor compared to the N3, due to rental income economics
        4. CFC decided they would switch it up and start renting out regiosn to be space rich like N3
        5. CFC core is rich but their member alliances are not that rich
        6. CFC never made as much money as N3 did according to their own article by Mittani
        7. CFC is cap averse and likes blobs and didn’t spend much in that dept.
        8. N3 has had both the Isk and Cap advantage until now
        9. N3 may still have a lil edge over CFC and this fight is not going to lower their morale cause you may as well quit the game if you are a seasoned pilot in N3

        Sure it is a great moral booster to CFC/RUS to use supers now but N3s morale is not going to take a setback due to one costly battle which quite frankly could be small bump for them due to their Isk/Cap and experience.

          I completely agree, just like the Northern Coalition after Uemon, being know as the biggest Titian losers of all time is no big deal, no matter how many you lose members don’t care and will actually fight alot harder for their leadership after a huge ass whooping so look out CFC you have poked the Dragon, and no matter how many time you completely destroy these forces at record breaking levels never before even dreamed of, you’ll just make the typical N3 grunt fight all the harder for their leadership..

            It’s repeatedly pointed out that the CFC have a culture. That the CFC isn’t defined by lines on a sovereignty map, that it’s more of an idea or an ideal.

            You can’t destroy ideas in a conventional way. So while you could remove Goon sovereignty completely from the game you will never remove the Goons. This is something the Goon leadership have cultivated very carefully.

            Now things don’t happen in a void. Whilst the Goons where championing their culture another culture was taking hold. Some call it “GrrrGoons” but it to is an ideal, it to has it’s own culture. It doesn’t fly under one banner and indeed there doesn’t seem to be as much cohesion but there is one thing that every one of those pilots is in agreement with “Just gimmie goons to shoot at”.

            The reasons each of these pilots have for their hate, loathing or distrust of the Goons vary wildly but just like the Goons removing them from sovereignty only increases their dedication and drive.

            So we have the forever war unless everyone from one side un-subs from the game of course.

      It’s a huge psychological victory to CFC-RUS

      If you havn’t noticed, most minor CFC members only brought 1-3 Titans when each of them probably had at least 20-50 in reserve; this was due to a psychological road-block. This road-block was mainly due to the CFC line-member’s belief that N3PL’s capital fleet was an unstoppable juggernaut. After B-R, most of them are starting to recognize just how weak N3PL’s capital fleet is. This in turn means more willingness by every super-pilot to deploy their ships to battle.

      Same goes for SOLAR, rest of RUS bloc, & BL.

        Psychological victory remains to be seen. I’m not entirely convinced that this wasn’t completely staged. The node was magically re-enforced for a surprise attack. The forgot to pay sov is pretty flimsy since it was a corp of PL alt in NA that forgot to do it. B-R while a staging point isn’t irreplaceable as a staging system.

        I doubt this really dents the N3 capital machine. The war in the south still moves slowly, in N3’s favour. I do hope that CFC RUSRUS come out more balls to the walls. We were starting to think you guys were giving up. I’m glad you got the morale booster you needed.

        The only entity that benefited from this “battle” was CCP. Incoming mass of subscriptions.

          You are here because you want to convince yourself the sacrifices you made in order to gain the ability to bang gold-diggers were worth the tradeoff.

          They weren’t, alas. I’m living proof.

          I admit I don’t spend much time in the gym, but I’m a dancer, so I don’t really need to pump iron all day in order to stay in shape. I’m a cellist, which I both play and teach.

          My girlfriend, also a dancer, is (I’m gonna go out on a limb here) probably a lot hotter than your fiance. When you look at things dancers do, and wonder how that translates to bed? It translates quite well. She’s a gamer, and a fantastic cook. She’s also an engineer, and considerably smarter than I am. Her sense of humor keeps a smile on my face most of any given day.

          This week she and I are hosting a LAN party.

          I have money, free time, a comfortable home and a beautiful, kindhearted lady on my arm. I have friends and family surrounding me almost all the time. I have a fridge in my office dedicated to the storage of tasty alcoholic beverages (and dew), with a stack of ramen noodles on top of it in case I get peckish.

          Truth is, my life is nearly perfect. I spend almost every minute of it doing exactly what I want to be doing, and a lot of that I get paid for, sometimes quite a lot.

          So when I tell you that I don’t come here to make fun of people, I come here because I fucking -care- what happened in B-R, I want you to take my full meaning.

          No one here is impressed. This is EVE. The playerbase of EVE is (statistically) mostly employed, comparatively healthy, somewhat older, significantly more international, and in higher-paid, higher skilled careers than their peers in other MMOs.

          We care about this game for the same reason other people care about football. When someone makes a brilliant play, or makes a mistake, or stumbles, or hires someone game-changing, we celebrate the genius or derp that underlies it.

          But fair enough. To each their own. You should go pump iron. I’m sure you can find someone to stare at your pectoral muscles twitching.

          Someone who cares.

          Someone not here.

      i could talk about the dome i got last night while i was trying to whore on kills but honestly, WHO THE FUCK CARES?

      you didn’t make fox news for that sale, or that bitch you call a fiance, but ehh to his and her own.

      I wasn’t there either, but then again I don’t need to verify where I was, as I don’t give 2 shits about the opinions of others online nor do I feel it necessary to make everyone look at me and cheer. But hey, your insecurities and low self esteem are your own. Guessing it stems from the same reason your fiance wasn’t sure if you were in or not.

    Finally, I was hoping for a battle like this a long time, unfortunately I stopped playing eve, but still like to see the killboard, is great to see PL and NCDOT losing titas, i not really like CFC, but I’m rooting for them and the russians won.

    There are individuals in PL that have Trillions….There are several in PL that could cover that loss single handedly.

      Cover the losses iskwise, which is the least of anybody’s worry. Giving a Titan pilot isk in the form of SRP does nothing to replace the ship that takes months to build, nor does it replace the morale lost in a conflict that took upward of 16 hours and ended as a loss.

          According to friends I have in NCdot the Titan stock they have on hand is limited and initial Titans are not first come first serve but rather “important” figures only as of right now.

          if that were true, then why weren’t they fielded?

          they dont have them! they may have the isk, but the mats for titans, and titans themselves arent around. So anyways keep the dream going m8.

            just because they have titans doesnt mean they have pilots to fly all of them. And they’re probably for replacing titans, you cant just hand titans out to just anyone that can fly them obviously.

    this ‘war’ is really just warming up. that fight was the whistle for half time.

    i’d say overall the score is about 1-1.

    the cfc (referred to now as man united) fans all think they should be 4-0 up, but don’t realise that scoring an equaliser late in the first half isn’t actually winning the game.

    n3 (like an underdog crystal palace) scored early in the game, but kind of went to sleep there for a while and let man u back into it when the ref dropped his whistle.

    palace fans are currently working on a new song to out sing the man u fans just in the second half. man u fans cant sing very well but really want to learn to dance like the happy mondays.

    man u feel lost as a team, they cant understand why they were 1-0 down to palace and were lucky to get the equaliser. their game plan appears confused, at best, under the the new management

    palace are loving the early goal advantage they held for a while and continue to push forward using a 2-3-5 formation against a lacklustre 4-4-2 man u formation. palace are playing like they have nothing to lose.

    full time predictions: palace 3-2 or 2-2 draw..

        I think you are too blinkered on the titan count as a measurement of success. perhaps a little further investigation as to total losses / ships killed, etc. across the entire ‘war’ may be required.
        titan kills do not win a war, they merely add value to kb and moral, both of which can be short lived or capitalised on.
        lets watch what happens next eh ?

          It doesn’t change the fact that they lost 2 cap fleets and had to spend money to replace those supers, however “fast or “easy” the replacement was resources were spent, and time was lost, and resources are still trapped in that station.

    This reminds me of some (american) football games I played in while in high school. Opposing team breaks off a big play, fans cheer and celebrate and rave. Then they realize, it’s the fourth quarter and their down a few scores. Battles are just the moment, if you’ve been getting hammered for 3 1/2 quarters, a long run, a spectacular goal, a monstrous dunk, a towering home run, just gets your fans excited and gives them a glimmer of hope before you smack it back down.

    Perhaps part of the reason the fight was “limited” to the 2500 or so pilots is that it was a dead end system, and the the systems leading to BR (and staging systems) where heavily camped preventing the outnumbered opponent from bringing in big numbers of sub-caps.

    A lot of people will be happy to have taken part in BR, they should thank those pilots who locked it down for them from the outside.

Being as they were afraid/incompetent drooling idiots, (probably were in shock that CCP did not back them as they did in HED, and others) I managed to keep bubbling their shinies for about 10 hours till DT.
