The back story on these events that led upto the invasion of Surely You’re Joking’s C6 Wormhole:
For a long time Surely You’re Joking has been a well known wormhole entity and has build up a formidable reputation being one of the bigger Wormhole Mercenary alliances, however, on Monday the 11th of February a formidable force consisting of some of the biggest names in wormhole space found their way into Surely You’re Joking’s C6 home system and started their attack.

The invading force consists of at least the following corporations/alliances… and then some…

Sleeper Social Club
Sky Fighters
Verge of Collapse
La Inquisicion Espanola
Kill It With Fire
Grand Sky Wizards
Ragnarok.

After talking to several people on both sides it became clear that a grudge against Surely You’re Joking had reached a boiling point after Pell Helix posted a Reddit thread (http://www.reddit.com/r/Eve/comments/1×2738/im_pell_helix_for_9_months_straight_i_havent/). This post seemed to be the final straw and several wormhole entities decided to take this opportunity to invade and burn some towers.

From Surely You’re Joking’s point of view, the invading force was out for revenge; but Surely You’re Joking was well aware that their reputation would come back to haunt them at some point. Over the course of several weeks prior to the invasion, Surely You’re Joking decided to move most of their assets out and continue their ventures from Lowsec.

Surely You’re Joking’s CEO Pell Helix told me that he himself hasn’t been active and operating from the wormhole for at least a year and moved his assets out weeks ago. He said the alliance decided it had to change its game because wormhole space no longer offered them the content they were looking for. So, the decision to invade had come too little too late, and only a hand full of dedicated wormholers remained.

During the initial engagement most of the C6 wormholers got jumped while running sleeper sites and promptly got podded back to highsec, effectively taking away their ability to bring the fight–so for most of the operation the invaders were shooting towers. In response a meeting was called where Pell Helix went through the situation with his alliance but in a twist, had a nice little message for the invading parties. The recording of this meeting can be found here: https://soundcloud.com/haha-15/syj-disbanding

After talking to both sides I did get the impression that the invading side took things more serious then the guys from Surely You’re Joking, even the wormhole corporation effected by the invasion didn’t seem to have any harsh words against the Alliance leadership. While they did admit it being a little bit unfair, they realize it was bound to happen and do not mourn the situation at all. So, in honesty, I question who is actually the victor in this situation because Surely You’re Joking seems to be walking with their heads held high while the invaders spend a couple days shooting structures–which in my personal opinion is lacking in content and not a lot of fun at all. Pell Helix at least thinks the future of Surely You’re Joking is very promising and swears on seeing the invading parties again some day, as he put it himself, he is making a list…

    Didn’t even want that 60bil

    • church

  • Seith kali

    “but with the help of EN24 news crew I hope to present a good quality…” Bahahaha You’re fucking kidding?

    • SYJ grunt

      umad?
      funny thing is we killed more in bastion than we lost

        Your statement is true only if you include the self destruction if your own assets as kills but not losses. You certainly didn’t come out ahead on anything else. Or not TBH, I doubt you had enough assets left to SD to make up for the 60+ Bil we killed in the invasion.

        • SYJ Grunt

          Uhh i said SYJ losses specifically. Don’t count BNI’s kitchen sink fleet. More “wormhole coalition” stuff died than SYJ stuff died. Nobody cares about abandoned towers.

          • Anhenka

            Still not seeing it. 14 t3’s just from SYJ and 4 logi during the SJY+BNI fight, vs 10 Ishtars on the WHfriends, not even including the 22 bil siterunning fleet to start with, or any non SYJ member of the fight.

            Unless there was some other fight I don’t know about where you guys killed more ships than you lost t3’s?

      • Seith kali

        I have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. I stopped reading/caring after the quoted sentence.

  • hehe

    He sounds mad in that sound cloud 😛

    • M1k3y Koontz

      Clearly you didn’t finish the soundcloud.

  • sanzu

    Pell is an egomaniacal douche, alliance went seriously downho=ill after Tartarus Ventures collapsed after he decided they didnt worship him enough when they questioned him on some of his stupid antics that had lost the alliance several contracts.

    dude lords over the alliance as bad as the mittani, good thing about the mittani is he at least does something. last i checked pell rages and bitches at the allian ce, especially when they die while he fcs, in the middle of his dota matches.

    • church

      lol tartarus was a holding corp created by the executor corp for people pell was testing out in w space or couldn’t trust putting into a normal corp because of roll issues in w space. most of the pilots in tartarus just transfered to swi lycosis or other corps in the allaince once they were trusted. Pell does have a massive ego though that is for sure. BUt i wouldn’t say he does nothing

  • SYJ-grunt

    Slight reality check: pretty much the entirety of the alliance gave up on worm-hole space 5 months ago, abandoned their towers, and hauled out all assets. You can check this on zkill, plenty kms of us blowing up our own towers back then.
    Three smaller corps stayed to make isk. That’s all that was left to “invade”.
    Kinda telling that the “invasion” only happened long after the place was abandoned.

  • Hey

    damn! some times it feels like hes telling hes life story when hes asking a question.
