So, recently Alexander. and Altruism have been having a low-intensity war in Syndicate. We both share the same pocket, but don’t share peak timezones, so the opportunities to do lasting damage have been low. We’ve blown up a few towers around the place, they’ve blown up one or two, and occasionally called the batphone on us.
So, Alexander. had reffed two POCOs in EF-F and they were coming out at Saturday morning, 0300 Eve time, which suited both parties.
The fight started on the station ahead of the reinforcement timers expiring. We popped a few Harbingers, then Altruism undocked with carriers to rep, then it rapidly escalated from there. An AL3X Thanatos got bumped 50km off station, and other carriers went into triage to save it as it crawled back.
Suddenly Rote Kapelle dropped in a couple of dreads and carrier. They weren’t shooting Altruism, so we figured they were just getting in on an opportune carrier kill, and kept repping our carrier.
Next minute! A mixed Ninja Unicorn capital fleet hot dropped Rote, and started wailing away on them. A handful of hictors also bridged in. This is what we expected to have happen to us, so we stopped shooting the Rote capitals and started repping them up, since it was becoming clear that our carrier would make it back to station.
And then! Rote counter-dropped with a couple of supercaps and a bunch more dreads and carriers, and went to town on the Ninja capital fleet. Altruism warped off, so we concentrated reps on the Rote fleet. A Rote sub-cap fleet also bridged in with many bubbles.
Capitals exploded or self-destructed left and right, then Altruism warped back and shot everyone. I’m not sure why, but then Rote turned on us even though we were repping them, so we said “screw this” and disengaged.
(Some of the fight, frapsed by Rote)
- “I’m getting reps, but I don’t know where from”. Yep. That was us. Ungrateful bastards.
- “So who we shooting?”
“just shoot Alex”
PS: We saved that carrier 🙂
