Now settled in to the gateway system to Delve, Sakht the Imperium has begun operations in earnest. The first systems to be claimed in the region: 1B-VKF which was taken from the 108 man alliance Knightmare Of New Eden and Q-HESZ which was held by a now closed alliance Bleeders. There is currently 28 other timers in Delve, the majority of which become contestable tomorrow (31st) between 17:00 and 23:00 EVE Time. Many belong to 898 man alliance the League of Unaligned Master Pilots [LUMPY].

With their capital fleet busy hitting a number towers around Aridia the Imperium have also been active in strengthening its political ties. The Aridia capital hunters LowSechnaya Sholupen [-LSH-] set all Imperium Alliances to +10 and the Imperium returned the favour by setting [-LSH-] +5. But not before [-LSH-] ambushed and killed a number of Imperium CarriersDreads and FAUXs.

Delve 31-7

With Imperium entosis fleets pushing to secure the northern part of Delve the first real skirmishes have started. On the 28th an Imperium Cerberus fleet faced down a [LUMPY] Gila fleet who had support from For a Few Fins [FFFIN] and Paisti Syndicate [PSY]. The clash resulting in the destruction of 6 billion ISK in ships. While the core dps of both fleets were of roughly equal size (approximately 50-60 ships) [LUMPY] held the edge with a larger support fleet meaning the Imperium were out numbered slightly 91 to 79. The fight ended in just over 30min after Imperium FC Jay Amazingness  was killed. But in that 30min the Imperium lost 32 ships worth 5.4bn ISK vs 24 ships lost worth 0.7bn ISK. Battle report can be found here.

The Imperium war machine returned in force the following day on the 29th with their plans pinned on reinforcing 1-SMEB. 1-SMEB is a strategically important system as it connects Delve to Imperiums staging system of Sakht in Aridia. Controling 1-SMEB and its station and would provide the Imperium with a hand hold to conduct further operations in the region. With their new allies [-LSH-] the Imperium brought 3 titans, 5 super carriers and 103 T3 Cruisers in a fleet totalling approximately 197 ships. [LUMPY] along with Freedom Among the Stars [FAS] and Just let it happen [FUM8] formed a fleet of 104 ships consisting mostly of Gila’s. The defending fleets and the Imperium almost traded ships evenly throughout the 30min of fighting. But with the Imperium having superior numbers it was only matter of time before the defending fleets had to disengage once [LUMPY] and allies lost nearly half their fleet. The Imperium lost 30 ships worth approximately 5.5bn ISK vs the 42 defending ships lost worth 3bn. Battle report can be found here.

Earlier today an Imperium taskforce moved into 1-SMEB to prepare for tomorrows timers and remove any defending infrastructure that may provide[LUMPY] and allies a safe haven from which they could strike from. In this instance it was a [LUMPY] starbase on planet V moon 1. The Imperium and allies amassed a fleet of approximately 450 ships including 23 Titans, 15 superacirers and 60 dreadnoughts. [LUMPY] and allies [FAS] and [FUM8] again formed their Gila fleet of approximately 170 ships. Despite being outnumbered almost 3 to 1 [LUMPY] and allies managed to take down 121 Imperium ships including one Dreadnought and 66 T3 cruisers valued at approximately 40bn ISK. This is in-comparison to the 86 ships + tower lost by [LUMPY] and allies worth 15bn ISK. While the Imperium achieved their objective it was a costly one. The battle report can be found here.

With the war for Delve now starting to heat up the big question remains, can the smaller entities of Delve defend against the invading Goon horde? They appear to be able to punch above their weight but will it be enough? This weekends timers will answer that question.

  47. Throughout the grand design of things you get an A for hard work. Exactly where you actually confused us ended up being on the particulars. As people say, the devil is in the details… And it couldn’t be more true here. Having said that, permit me inform you exactly what did give good results. Your writing can be highly persuasive and this is possibly why I am making an effort to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, while I can notice a leaps in logic you make, I am not really confident of exactly how you appear to unite your ideas which help to make the actual conclusion. For right now I will, no doubt subscribe to your position however hope in the future you link your dots better.
