So a few day's ago I took out a Rupture fleet to try and get a fight and hopefully whelp everyone. I ended up with a really tight doctrine fleet of around 23 which was amazing everyone was in the correct ship and we had loads of Logi ( about 5 ) no caracals or shite to be found anywhere in the comp so overall brilliant, It's how it should be.
We went for a run towards HED- to see if anyone wanted to pick a fight and well we found someone who did pretty quickly. We managed to get tackle on a command dessie and scrammed he couldn't do much so he died promptly. What we didn't see coming was the SOLARFLEET Prophecy gang with their own logi warp in I managed to draw enough aggro that the majority of the fleet evac-ed however me and a couple others sacrificed our lives for the good of the fleet!
Report Here - we still won the isk war so who cares!
We hung about for a bit while a Vexor gang came in as well and not wanting to tangle with the two gangs at the same time we scouted around until they had left the area. Now after going into HED-, Brotherstud passed me over a Magus, Now I haven't flown these like ever.. But honestly it was the most dickish/hilarity ensuing ship I've ever flown. We got wind of a big CTA in up Providence involving a hostile gang or some such. So I gave the guys the option of either taking them home to reship into Nightmares or we continue as is and play stealth support. Decision was unanimous and we shipped out as we were in our Ruptures with a command destroyer at the front.
We rolled up the pipes heading towards KBP7- In Providence. Not wanting the enemy or the friendlies to know about us we kept quiet, ignoring everything and positioning ourselves and hatching a plan. So we got into a system once reds had cleared out and docked at the citadel. Our fleet being not to big I don't think anyone paid attention to us. After pouring through Intel to see what was happening we started filtering scouts into the system to get our fleet in without being blapped on gate. Luckily enough our pro scouts shouted when it was time to move and we quick responded our asses out the station and into system warping immediately to a perch above the enemy fleet after our ceptor pilot Nalles did some pro pin pointing we landed behind the already engaged enemy fleet and started locking up primary's. We were attempting to hit the same targets as CVA but eventually proving to be more of a nuisance then they would have liked Shadow Cartel turned their guns on us. Our logi being super pro kept some of us alive while others who hadn't kept up traversal were slapped into bits.
We did some positioning after getting a couple of kills "Obviously with CVA assists" ;D After seeing the enemy fleet starting to flag and losses mount for some reason I made the call to warp to a wreck and land hopefully about 50km off. However I warped the entire fleet at 0m and landed on what I can only assume was the Shadow Cartel FC having flown with him in the past. In the split second of realizing as we entered warp I had made a mistake I put the call out over comms "Hold tight guys! No one move on land!" On landing I spooled up the jump unit and all you could hear on comms was "WTF RAND! What are you doing!" Oh fuck he's jumping us" After that I nearly died laughing as we launch all of us along with several SC guys off their fleet and started attempting to tackle them. With no scrams however we failed to stop their MWD. And my Magus got toasted. In the time it took for them to reach their fleet they were nearly all dead and not too soon afterwards they exploded too.
After reshipping into a IBIS! I launched our fleet once again back into the fray jumping into the adjoining system we lent our helping hand of DPS and Logistics to wipe out their 4 FAX Machines ( Force Auxiliaries ) Not that we made any real difference in the fight but we had amazing fun. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves, even after a few of us reshipped and died and what have you. Our Logi was amazing keeping my shields on the Magus repped up while I ancillary boosted my armor trying to get into warp and surviving twice due to logi reps before dying. All in all I think we lost a grand total of about 9 ships possibly 10. We may not have assisted in Nightmares ( we were all poor ) but we went to help anyway in our own way and honestly it was the most fun I've had in ages.
Big thanks to Shadow for providing the big fight it was awesome and their was no faggot acts to speak of just straight up no fucks given quality brawl fight.
Big thanks to the guys who came on the fleet. And special thanks to Brotherstud for providing me with a ship Ive since loved flying!
