We got reports of a large battle between N3/PL and CFC/AAA forces in the HJ-BCH solar system of the Scalding Pass region. Almost Awesome had been repairing a final station timer when Syrian, an NCDot erebus pilot, attempted a driveby that netted him an archon. The titan was, as is the case so often with these things, tackled. NC. supers began supporting the titan. Then, as CFC forces consisting largely of RZR Maelstroms and a CONDI Tengu fleet N3/PL TFIs and Foxcats began bridging directly into the fray to help bail out the stranded supers.
As the TFI/Foxcat fleet began faltering under the combined fire of SW muninns and ishtars along with CFC Maelstroms, tengus, and Harpies an S2N slowcat fleet was cynoed in to reinforce the flagging N3/PL forces. Then the tide shifted. Shortly thereafter CFC/SW forces began streaming out with the harpy fleet pinned and eliminated.
Riverini’s note: Roweena Azur from Almost Awesome contested our first report of the fight, so he’s provided below an opportunity to show his point of view of the fight:
What really happened? NCDOT was lazy on last time and jumped in 15 dreads 5 archons and 3 supers with like maybe 10 subcaps, so we planned to kill it and had other forces prepared to bubble their support in their staging systems, so they couldn’t reach the field.
I put the Archon on station and triage green, within one min the enemy (NCDOT) cyno went up and we undocked our dictors for initial tackle, in came 14 supercapitals and a Erebus who started delivering doomsday blows. We committed, NCDOT committed and jumped in Archons, which several ended up dying, we planned to kill carriers with subcaps and we did.
The planning credit goes to the RAZOR FC, he organized everyone, my alliance held initial tackle for literally three or four minutes on the fourteen supers and the titan. In summary we baited, we escalated, CFC brought the numbers.
Everyone involved did their part exceptionally well, which in my eyes is the only reason it succeeded. We had never worked as a “group” before, but Qicia is the one who pulled everyone together for the timer. we played dumb and nc fell for it, again.
Mad Props to Faldal Dartan for sending us the following vid of the fight:
