A month ago the CFC alliance Fidelas Constans deployed to Geminate, one of the two neutral areas that remain in nullsec. We’ve seen multiple skirmishes between Legion of Death and FCON  in the region, but nothing quite on the scale of what occurred on 27th June, which would result in the destruction of 27 billion isk.

Z-killboard link

The fight began when a 200-man fleet composed of Legion of Death and friends began attacking FA Sovereignty Blockade Units in the system of UQ9-3C in Branch. Prior to the main fight the attacking fleet, mainly composed of Ishtars, destroyed two of the defensive SBUs, seeing off harassment in the form of an FCON bomber fleet.

 Shortly after the destruction of the second SBU, FCON decided to engage the intruders head-on. They assembled a force of 150 pilots in the CFC’s trademark Baltecfleet doctrine, consisting of a roughly equal proportion of Megathrons and Apocalypses. Support was provided by triage carriers and a handful of logistics ships.

 Initially it seemed as if FCON were gaining the upper hand, destroying Ishtars at a greater rate than they were losing battleships, with the carriers soaking up damage. However once the Ishtars positioned themselves better they quickly ripped into the CFC fleet. After they lost their triage support they didn’t stand a chance against the 175 Ishtars that now vastly out-gunned them.

 FCON managed to disengage before their losses became too severe. They only lost 34 battleships by the end of the battle, a figure that could have been significantly higher if Legion of Death brought more interdictors. The combined cost of their losses came to 24 billion isk, not an insignificant amount of money for an alliance such as FCON. Legion of Death kept their losses to a minimum, losing only fourteen Ishtars to the tune of 4.3 billion isk in damage. With Legion of Death now one up over their temporary rivals, we’ll see if FCON are able to win the next confrontation.

      So you mean that “w-space is better in losing.” Indeed, sir.

  • prog

    I appreciate the fact that this 4 day old BR seems slightly belated you probably cue these posts up but you could probably do some research and pick out a few more from the host of battles we have had since and almost every other day this past week. Here are a few more from zkb. It usually but not always do a good job of tallying up most of the participants

    And no, 24bil should not be a significant number for any alliance the size of the two involved in these skirmishes.

    • FCON Grunt

      I could personally wipe my ass with 24 billion ISK and still plex my accounts for a few more months, So hardly that significant for the alliance as a whole, no.

      • Dumbledore

        Sir, please clarify something here. Is 24b big ISK for you (“could wipe your behind”) or is it nearly all you have (“could only plex a few more months after that”)?

    • TrollMonkey

      Well someones butt hurts eh? Lets remember most people don’t have Tits to suckle on. So yes to most Alliances your “size” its not a paltry sum. Puff up that chest little buddy. We all need to know you have all the ISK in the game. And that little things like this don’t hurt. And yet the fact you needed to “defend” the fight and show the next several battles tells a very nice little story. But alas I digress. Most Alliances your size work for what they have. And so don’t need to “set up a happy funtime war” just so they can try to pretend they can be victorious without their Daddy’s Bank Account making sure it doesn’t hurt too badly. =-)~ Have fun little buddy, and remember if you can’t beat the likes of XIX you can always keep inviting more people who drop other alliances within your coalition making it seem very much like its just you. (odd so many of those names had other corp/alliance tickers before this little offensive started eh? Keep up the good fight mateys. Keep up the good fight!

        Why so negative? Chatroom embitterment?

          • TrollMonkey

            Matey, I am most definitely not who you think I am. And to prove it, and not seem like I am trying to hid behind the TrollMonkey mo-nacre. I am stationmonkey little known CEO of Synthetic Arbitration. A part of nothing big, and a statistical nobody. Just had to put in my 2 cents like everyone else. No sense in letting the GCLUB guy take the heat for my little dissertation. =-)~

        I am shocked that a person with the name trollmonkey said something retarded.

      • Stalin

        LoL, you are so retarded. Why are you crying so much? Is it your butt hurting still?

    • TrollMonkey

      Well, you want to discuss those fights? Lets start with the first of your 3 links. (I might get around to the other 2.. we shall see.)
      Anywhoo!! From the appearances of the Battle Report. An overly simplified breakdown would look something like this.
      FCON XIX
      45 Archon 4 Damnation
      7 Thanatos 1 Harbinger
      4 Nidhoggur 4 Legion
      53 Apocalypse 4 Proteus
      73 Megathron 93 Ishtar
      8 Celestis 87 Vexor Navy
      7 Oneros 8 Oneros
      5 Execuror 11 Execuror

      Both sides have a smattering of other support craft on the field including but not limited to Cruisers/Destroyers/Bombers/Interceptors.

      Dispite the overkill of 56 Capital ships on field, FCON manages not only to have a mere 48% Efficiency. But Seems to be relatively easily outclassed by what could relatively easily be argued an inferior, though much more nimble fleet. They seem to have entered the fight thinking their 56 Capitals along with their 140 Battleships would readily hand the day to their side. And yet, while on the surface XIX came into the fight with what should have been woefully outclassed. They weren’t, and with just a smattering of T-1 Logi, and a small backbone of Ony’s they held their own.

      After breaking down this fight I doubt I will look as closely at the other 2. But I do have to admit that FCON definitely NEED this little “training” war!!

      And, while I know your all quite sick of my 2 cents by now. (perhaps you should try to talk a decent FC into coming over with the troops yes?)

      yep that guy again.

      p.s. eventually someone will get mad enough to try to make my gameplay difficult. Perhaps I should be more overt with my CFC hate yes? LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

      • prog

        Yup seing how it inspired this flurry of improvised AAR maybe the OP should resign his post to you. I think your 2c here was pretty much what I wanted to bring to light with the 3 battle reports I added minus perhaps the vulgar language, the cynicism and the lack of perspective ;D

    • Hi there

      So write it up…….

    • lol

      so these battlereport links are to show what? they are all basically even k:d ratio? or are you just trying to regergitate whatever cfc prop. was fed to you?

    • Senex Legio 1

      This is a report about one battle, not other battles. Your post makes no sense at all.

      • prog

        Right you are but having flown in at least 8 of the 10 or so major battles fcon and xix has had and seen a lot of hard work done to make it happen my space pride naturally took a hit when neither the first nor the last of the battles were reported on but just one seemingly selected with slight bias and titled “fcon was destroyed” :D

        And since the article as previously stated was more than lacking in accuracy and content I supplied some addendum. Not as evidence of pvp talent or space riches but for mere posterity. Sadly Eve’s player base as negative and hateful as it has come to be has nothing left that sparks interest in the community but to put negative spin on other space pixels that made them butt hurt for what ever reason.

        • wow

          instead of sitting there and typing a bunch of words that you think make you look cool, they really make you look like a bitch, take some time and write a BR and submit it.

          • prog

            But I did, in the shape of a few stern words of factual correction and added scope : ) And what a BR it must have been seeing how it upset you enough to bash me in the comment section for an interjection so innocent :P

          • Senex Legio 1

            I found his reply quite reasonable to be honest. I won’t get on his ass because he is being honest (at least from his perspective).

            I find it funny he refers to eve’s negative and hateful player base, and you reply immediately with something negative and hateful. There is a certain irony there.

          • pick a name

            His response is hypocritical at best. What he himself was writing was negative, he is just trashing someone else BR because he doesn’t like that only one of probably 20+ fights were written about. Nobody is stopping him from writing about the fights he was involved in(which is “at least 8 of the 10″).

        • pick a name

          So if you have flown in them, and want everyone to know about them, why not write a BR on them?

          We will read them if you put the effort into writing them. It’s funny how everyone hates on people making the content on these sites, but are to lazy to make any content themselves.

          • FCON Rando

            We don’t write about them because if we wanted applause we’d have joined the circus.

          • pick a name

            prog is fishing for just that actually, he wants everyone to know that he was in a battle, or three even that he won at some point. I’d say that’s interesting if he wrote a BR about, but they way he presented it makes him look like a crying child.

  • nerfsentries

    hey look ishtars, VNIs and Myrms *yawn*

  • chzy

    I like how the writer reports that it was FCon in one sentence and CFC in the others, especially since it was pretty much completely FCon. Why do I get the feeling this is another retard writer from NCdot.

    • prog

      Yes the whole point of this thing was to keep it at alliance level. There has been no cfc or n3 intervention except for a brief PL caps batphone from xix that came out of miscommunication. it’s FCON vs xix + their renters and close allies/neighbours like hard

  • GoonCryBaby

    Ishtars still too stronk, we need to cry moar to get more nerfs!

  • Kimpaz

    Like Makalu once said: “Nice!”

        No it’s a extremely rare recording. :)

  • Andrew Hacker

    this is hilariously innacurate, biased, and all based on a 4 day old BR. Put some fucking effort into these articles for christ’s sake

    • jay

      And yet you still come here to read this shit :)

      • FCON Grunt

        I know, it’s not nice to laugh at the mentally disabled, but they’re just too damn funny.

      • Chairman Mao

        He’s just here after having read on some other minor propaganda site “This just in, GLORIOUS VICTORY AGAINST THE ENEMIES OF FREEDOM”

        He needs to check facts after all…

  • FCON Grunt

    “with the carriers soaking up damage … After they lost their triage support they didn’t stand a chance”

    This is ass backwards. The carriers barely had time to turn on their hardeners and were just about alphaed off the field within the first minute.

    We did win the next confrontation. And the next one after that.

    • FCON pilot

      and the next one after that…

      • Dumbledore

        By the “three next confrontations”, you guys probably mean a 3-vs-1 off Oijanen gate in BWF, an FCON suicide gank of XIX mammoth in Niarja, and a honor duel at sun? Or something of that scale.

    • cfc_grunt2

      Commenting on the content of this article is plain useless, the writer did not know anything about this battle and did not bother to contact any of the parties involved.
      He saw a lot of loses in dotlan and because is a part of N3 propaganda team he wrote this crap.

  • Flash Gordon

    CFC bots down

    • http://battorem.blogspot.com/ BattoRem

      Confirming that there are only about 50 people in the CFC. These 50 are really good at isboxer and everyone else in the coalition is a bot.

  • na

    God help CFC, if and when the next big war kicks off, and the battles (timers/csaa’s) are in several key systems simultaneously from the North to the South day and night.

    Burn burn baby. Next time no handshakes and shitty deals.

    • Real Talk

      See, the CFC are this bad, and yet PLN3 still don’t have the cajones to invade, what does that say about them…..

      • LOLPL

        PL cant do anything. They are scared and dont want to lose their renter space. Its the only thing they have left since they have lost their balls.

          PL are a comedy alliance now.

          I like how people assume botlord will remain intact for the rest of eve’s lifetime.

          It won’t happen. Agreements will get made, and agreements will be broken.

      • Nyssah

        Why do PLN3 need to invade? When will CFC do something that requires them to get off their arses.

  • acid

    Who cares about failcon, few months ago they lost 100+ sub caps and 6 carriers to 40 man fleet…

      For some to feel like winners, you need those willing to repeatedly lose.

      you sound like a mad goon…im sure cfc will try to bring 3x the numbers next time, you’re right ;)

      Please clarify.

    • Washi_Meisei

      sounds more like you are crying.

      • Stalin

        Crying for what? Simple as that: this article is propaganda from N3. Is good to see, though how hard is BR is still hurting you all. One article in evenwes were an entity from CFC loose a fight and all shitpoters from N3, BL et Co are in the comments page.
        keep going if this will make you feel better.

        • PL

          Seriously, how long are you remtarded dudes going to keep sperging about BR? Is that your best comeback each and every single time? If that’s all your about then considering yourselves lost when the accord goes down the drain.

          • Washi_Meisei

            EXACTLY. But then its the kid’s only real victory. He’s got to be proud of something. Since he’s CFC he’d doesn’t amount to much. As any 1 N3 alliance and rip apart any 1 CFC alliance. They can only win when all 40,000 of their nerds are online and either try and crash the server like they tried and failed in HED-GP, or outnumber multiple systems like they did in B-R.

    *heavy sarcasm*

    • Washi_Meisei

      I’m surprised that they didn’t whine to a GM….. well maybe they did and the GM told them to sod off. Like when we bashed them in GW when they had SR oracles getting smashed by our LR Nagas. They most likely whined to Mittins, just like they did when we smashed them on our little deployment to Aridia.

          I mean, shit, if Goons can use the whine train to nerf whatever fleet doctrines their opponents are using time and time again, surely they can do the same thing to get any fleet doctrine they want to use buffed. But everyone in the CFC is too retarded to think of that.

    I believe this is more accurate unless I missed something: https://zkillboard.com/related/30004310/201406291800/
    Now, since I was there…
    – The carriers were shooting Ishtars not repping us.
    – We landed too close and the Ishtars got up under our guns. So, ya they were chewing us up good and their logi was taking advantage of the full on TiDi to land reps.
    – Once we MWDed and pulled range the tables turned and Ishtars started dieing…it was then XIX left grid.
    – On the second round XIX bombers made an absolute brilliant bombing run, hats off to those guys, that really hurt but alas accounted to not as we had range with little TiDi and Ishtars were dying like flies so XIX left the grid and the fight was over.
    – FCON succeeded in all of their strategic goals…loses are SRP’ed by space jews; even then the efficiency ratio was almost even. So, basically good fights all around with XIX bombers pulling off some really well coordinated bomb runs…cheers to those bomber pilots.
    P.S. This is an arranged alliance war game content so no there are no wars, no drama, no coalitions, there are rules. Just plain old gf’s in local from one group of Combat capsulers to another. XIX o7

  • Luwceru

    Not too bad considering they had about 50+ pilots less. In all honesty
    … If they blueballed they would have been weak. If they blobbed they
    would have been dirty CFC blobbers and as of this… they choose to
    fight outnumbered had on they are just bad ? I don’t know who’s worse
    … People getting a hard on over killing a heavily outnumbered fleet or
    going balls deep and trying to stand your ground which includes might
    loosing a few BS.

    • FA Hero

      Well, EN24 finds it fit to make “news” out of ever super and titan loss. This is basically an N3/PL propaganda site, don’t be surprised when nobody acknowledges an actual even fight.

      • rusty

        If you ever find one, you should write up a BR and send it in rather than just bitch and moan.

          Oh hey, a couple of weeks ago we dunked a Northern Coalition Myrmidon fleet that wandered into Fountain. They all died compared to our one logi loss. I should make a news article about this!

          Or wait, on second thought, that’s not news and I know the difference. I’ll pass.
