Bar Fight in EF-F

A screenshot of the fight. True Story.

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)

Notable quotes:

  • “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 🙂

    Lol, sorry m8, we had no idea you were repping us, and as you weren’t blue… we followed ROE

    At the end of the fight, we were concerned with looting the field to make up some of our 20b in losses, so the order given was “make everyone dock up” so we could do that. Wasn’t anything personal.

      Yeah, I saw Carthano in a hauler scoop up two dozen fighters one by one, which was fine, but being surrounded by Altruism carriers was a bit of a downer.

    During the salvage/loot process an attempt was made to bomb everyone.

    All i succeeded in doing was bombing myself. LOLZOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You didn’t save my carrier, you deserved to die 🙂

    Ultimately it was an unmanageable 4-5 way that came down to shoot whatever wasn’t temp blue. Great fight though.

    “…then Altruism warped back and shot everyone.” We were not shooting Rote. In fact we were taking our capital target calls from them.

    pretty epic, and the fact we got our carrier back from a 50+k bump off station = WINNING

    I spent the entire fight flying in between dead supercaps in a cloaky tengu, calling targets as they were being engaged… Was pretty funny as hell to watch everyone around me die, and Al3x didn’t even lose a single cap, including the 50km off station superbumped thanny! lol
