Prism system, Black Rise region. On the 16th of January at 22:43 EVE standard time a battle unfolded in the system between Escalating Entropy [CHAOS] and Snuffed Out [B B C].

The two sides clashed over a Snuffed Out tower which Escalating Entropy had previously reinforced. With the tower set to exit reinforced mode both sides gathered allies and prepared for a fight.

Snuffed Out, together with Project.Mayhem. [16-13] and WAFFLES. [N0MAD] formed a 150 pilot Proteus strategic cruiser fleet. The force gathered in a wormhole system with a connection to the Prism system and waited for Escalating Entropy to arrive. The tower exited its reinforced mode and Escalating Entropy arrived bringing a dreadnought squadron to the tower and setting it up near its shields. The dreadnoughts entered their siege cycles and started pummelling the defenceless structure.

With the dreadnoughts now immobile Snuffed Out commanders ordered the attack. The fleet quickly poured of the wormhole and warped to the tower, only to find they had warped to the opposite side of the tower from where the dreadnoughts had gathered. After a quick re-positioning on a ping, the Proteus fleet warped back in, landing on the dreadnoughts. Tacklers started pointing the vessels while the force opened fire on the capital ships.

As the strategic cruisers anchored up and started to tearing into the dreadnoughts. Suddenly a cynosural beacon was lit and an estimated 70 Escalating Entropy and Shadow Cartel [SHDWC] Machariel battleship fleet materialised on the grid with a full squadron of Apostle force auxiliaries in tow. The strategic cruisers switched targets, concentrating their fire on the new arrivals while making sure to keep all the dreadnoughts pinned down.

The battleships burnt in with their autocannons spitting fire at the logistics wing of the Proteus fleet as  the strategic cruisers returned fire on the Machariels. A frantic exchange took place as Guardians logistics cruisers and Machariels were blown apart in the crossfire. During all that commotion, the dreadnoughts were able to destroy the tower and were busy clearing the remaining anchored modules as they were already forced to remain on the grid.

As the two sub capital fleets fought amidst the capitals assembled on field, a second cynosural beacon flared up. Into the field jumped Northern Coalition. [NC]. The alliance had been monitoring the exchange, and hastily formed a fleet after seeing all the capitals assembled by Escalating Entropy and Shadow Cartel.

The Machariel fleet, unable to fight both the Proteus fleet and the Northern Coalition. super capitals, had no choice but to concede the field. However Snuffed Out decided to remain in the fight, tackling the Escalating Entropy and Shadow Cartel capitals. The reasoning behind it was simple, the capitals presenting a more appetizing target to Northern Coalition. than the strategic cruisers helping to tackle them.

Doomsday devices spooled up and Fighter Bomber squadrons descended on the stranded capitals, their weapons piercing through shields and armour utterly demolishing dreadnoughts and force auxiliaries. All the while more and more Northern Coalition. super capitals piled into the system and swelling their numbers to almost 100 ships . Within minutes the entire Escalating Entropy\Shadow Cartel capital force was in ruins, only a few dreadnoughts escaping the slaughter.

With the capitals gone, the Northern Coalition. fleet turned its attention to the Proteus fleet which remained close to it. Fighters started to swarm the strategic cruisers, chewing through heavy interdictors and mainline ships with relative ease. Realising the time to withdraw had come, Snuffed Out commanders had the fleet align out and enter warp.  After dispatching the few stragglers it could catch Northern Coalition. claimed the field quickly destroying what modules remained from the tower before extracting the fleet back safely.

With Northern Coalition gone, Snuffed Out returned to claim the moon once again, deploying a new tower and thus securing the strategic objective. With this, the battle in Prism came to an end.
