WH vs PL, Batphones & Neuting

This was a busy weekend for EVE with me with different fleets and ops to go out on.

First off, we had an operation planned by ex-CSM member Chitsa (SSC pilot) that would lead us gloriously into null-sec with progodlegend as our FC. Our fleet consisting of over 150 wormholers undocked from Amarr and headed down towards Brave Newbies' space. Eventually we ended up fighting Pandemic Legion and Nulli Secunda in a large fight that was a first for many of us wormholers who generally do small gang fights.

For me, the experience of fighting in a large fight was thrilling and new. As logi, it was incredibly difficult to keep up with the broadcasts as I was repping people and unlocking them to move onto new targets that I was locking (and subsequently sometimes watching die before reps could land - sorry those in Harbinger Navy Issues). It was all fun and games until I captured the attention of their FC and was subsequently blapped. I did manage to get out with my pod and make it all the way back to our wormhole, avoiding many camps along the pipe on the way home with some creative safe-making. The final battle report has the wormholers coming out on top in the ISK war, but both sides won when it comes to content generation.

The next day, Hard Knocks tackled a bunch of carriers in null and batphoned us for help. Our closest connection was 18 jumps away, so I jumped in a Crusader and ran out there. The targets ended up losing 8 carriers and assorted support ships. It was a great catch by HK and we were happy to lend a hand.

On our way home, one of the wormhole groups (The Enigma Project) that was also helping HK (and also were in our chain) decided to camp the return hole and kill some of our returning pilots. One of our pilots took a battle Exequror to kill one of their pilots before dying in glory. Then we decided to form up a fleet and jump into their home to look for a fight. They did not disappoint us and landed on the hole with a larger group ready to take us on. Unfortunately they had heavy neuting and jamming capability and our logistics (myself included) were quickly neuted dry and jammed out. We ended up losing one Guardian before calling the fight and heading home.

All in all, it was a good weekend for wormhole activities. Except, that is, for my reaction POS. I lost an industrial due to me being lazy and not properly scouting the hole before jumping in. This disrupted my supply run, so I'll have to find time to get the rest of the gas into the hole.


  1. Just a clarification, we (Enigma Project) had no idea HK were about and we certainatly weren't with them :) One of our regular scouts just happened to be in the area and also reported you guys going out and coming back.

    Thanks for giving us a fleet to ship up for, much obligued. I also really enjoyed being the Logi FC for the big roam.

  2. I guess that makes sense considering you folks weren't on the BR ;) My mistake.

    I enjoyed having you as the logi FC! Nicely done.
