MJYW-3 system, Cloud Ring region. On the 18th of February at 21:15 EVE Standard Time, The-Culture [-T C-] and Pandemic Horde [REKTD] forces clashed in the system in a battle that escalated in to a full capital brawl.

The battle was prompted by The-Culture. The alliance had scouted a major battle taking place in the neighboring O-BDXB system between various fleets. Wishing to join in, The-Culture formed an estimated 70 pilot Ferox battlecruiser fleet. The force traveled in range of the system, assembling on a titan and waited to be bridged in. The-Culture scouts in the meantime moved a cynosural beacon to the area in order to allow the fleet to portal through.

Pandemic Horde had participated in the fighting, but as it died down started extracting its forces. The alliance had an estimated 100 pilot Hurricane battlecruiser fleet. The fleet traveled into the MJYW-3 system and prepared to warp to the QXW-PV gate in order to continue its journey home. The-Culture realized this and quickly set up its cynosural beacon on the QXW-PV gate, waiting for the Pandemic Horde fleet to enter warp before lighting the beacon and bridging through. Once Pandemic Horde forces were in warp, the bulk of The-Culture Ferox fleet landed in the system.

Exiting warp, the Pandemic Horde Hurricane fleet landed amid the Ferox battlecruisers. In a snap decision, the Pandemic Horde fleet decided to engage, and both sides anchored up, burning away from each other and opened fire. Railguns and artillery cannons exchanged fire as the two fleets chose to fight at medium range, remaining 30 to 50 kilometers apart throughout the fight.

From the start, neither side was able to tank the incoming damage. With both fleets relying on overwhelming coordinated barrages, opposing mainline ships succumbed to the incoming fire leaving logistics wings scrambling. Besides mainline ships, support and even logistics cruisers found themselves targeted, added to the growing list of casualties as the battle progressed. The trade in losses remained even between the two sides, leading to a protracted and bloody fight.

However, as time went by, The-Culture found itself in a precarious position. It started the battle with a numerical disadvantage, but things got relatively worse as the two sides ground each other to dust. The-Culture’s logistics wing sustained far greater casualties than its Pandemic Horde equivalent. With the majority of Scimitar logistics cruisers destroyed, the logistics wing was nearly defunct. With damage lessening on both sides due to the destruction of many battlecruisers, the presence of a logistics wing could made the difference between victory and defeat.

To compensate, The-Culture made arrangements to bring in a Minokawa force auxiliary to supplement its withering logistics wing. With a cynosural beacon prepared for the ship to jump into the system, The-Culture fleet commanders were surprised to see not one, but three Minokawas on the field. This was a result of an error in communications, but it served as a pretext for Pandemic Horde to counter escalate. A new cynosural beacon lit up near the force auxiliaries and a mixed Pandemic Horde capital squadron materialized.

Pandemic Horde brought several dreadnoughts, combat carriers and force auxiliaries to counter The-Culture’s reinforcements. Quickly realizing they couldn’t tank both the Hurricane fleet and the capital squadron, The-Culture fleet commanders had the force auxiliaries withdraw while its own fleet warped to a perch above the gate. Interdictors and interceptors were sent to tackle the Pandemic Horde capitals while reinforcements were hastily formed and brought in range of the system. Besides getting more replacement battlecruisers, The-Culture had three squadrons of dreadnoughts moved in range of the system in order to help destroy the Pandemic Horde capitals which were pinned on grid.

Once reinforcements were in position, the Ferox fleet warped down to the tackled Pandemic Horde capitals and lit a cynosural beacon, bridging in fresh reinforcements as well as its dreadnought squadrons. The dreadnoughts entered their siege cycles and started hammering their Pandemic Horde counterparts, as the Ferox fleet and the remnants of the Hurricane fleet continued to battle.

The-Culture first targeted the Pandemic Horde Minokawa before moving on to the combat carriers and dreadnoughts. By the time the second Pandemic Horde Minokawa came under attack, a new cynosural beacon appeared on the field, heralding the arrival of Pandemic Horde reinforcements. Pandemic Horde had gathered three combat carrier squadrons and a dreadnought squadron and brought them to the field, countering The-Culture’s capital force. The combat carriers deployed their fighter squadrons while the new dreadnoughts quickly joined their brethren, fighting The-Culture’s capitals.

The two sides started trading blows, dreadnoughts exploding left and right as the two sides focused their firepower on enemy vessels. The-Culture, seemingly trading favorably at the start, decided to continue and committed its dreadnoughts through another siege cycle. Yet as the battle gathered pace, the trade started to even out before leaning more and more to Pandemic Horde’s favor. Realizing this, The-Culture called pilots to exit siege and prepare to extract. However the fleet had not secured an emergency exit beacon, leaving many dreadnoughts to exit siege cycles and get tackled by the Pandemic Horde combat carriers who started deploying Siren fighters.

By the time a cynosural beacon was secured, two thirds of The-Culture’s dreadnought force lay in ruin. The remaining ships either warped out to a safe citadel in the system or jumped out to safety. The Ferox fleet followed suit, warping out and allowing the Pandemic Horde combat carriers to safely extract, the Hurricane fleet having left some time before, what remained of it.

With both fleets disengaging, the battle came to a close.

All told the battle lasted 52 minutes with Time Dilation not reported and the system hosting an estimated 220 pilots at the height of the fighting.

Pandemic Horde lost 145 ships in the fighting, including 14 dreadnoughts, 2 force auxiliaries, 2 combat carriers and 65 battlecruisers for a total of 74.99 billion ISK damage.
The-Culture lost 114 ships in the battle, including 20 dreadnoughts and 47 battlecruisers for a total of 74.23 billion ISK damage.

  5. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God.

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist “who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4). For a time he will bring about a false peace, but “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15)…then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21).

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it. Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark. Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    Visit http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM to see proof for these things and why the Bible truly is the word of God!

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! This is forever…God bless!

    “EITHER HUMAN INTELLIGENCE ULTIMATELY OWES ITS ORIGIN TO MINDLESS MATTER OR THERE IS A CREATOR…” – JOHN LENNOX

    We all know God exists. Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all. Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No. So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does. Who is capable of knowing everything? God. So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God.

    A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature. And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist.

    It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero. What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing. Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

    Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes. Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major “holy” books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things. Watch a potential life-changing video on the website listed below with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data. He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists.

    Jesus came to pay a debt that we could not; to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: “For the wages of sin is death…” (Romans 6:23).

    God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life. Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself. All the law hang on these commands. We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom. If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

    Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin. The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law. If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish. For sin is the transgression of the law. We must walk in the Spirit so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh, being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like. Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26). If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2). Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations. It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our own desires that they become sin (James 1:12-15). When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God. For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14).

    The oldest religion in the world is holiness through faith (James 1:27). What religion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what religion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow the rituals and traditions of man but to take up our cross and follow Him (Luke 9:23). There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray. This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment. Unlike religion, holiness cannot be created. It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit. Jesus is more than a religion; He is about having a personal relationship with the Father. Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments. Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!
