The Spire I

I heard about some new ideas in one of our channels so I thought I'd go out and do a bit of naughtiness before I leave on holiday. After setting off from X5 I put my goal at the first system in The Spire and off I go... only to get caught in a blue bubble after a few jumps. And discover I forgot to put an Microwarp drive on the ship. So I head back towards a station (the one in C-J) and get myself a MWD.

Then from there I again head towards the first system in The Spire, but instead of travelling through our own space I have to visit Red Alliance. Nothing in particular happened, apart from finding two Dominition spawn camping gates ... how good a spawn they are in Drone country I have no idea, and I don't have a ship to take them on anyway. I'd leave my for the carebears instead.

I'll venture further out in next stage.

More action

As usual these days, time have been lacking. But the action is here in Insmother if you know where to look and dare to participate.

The other day HTA decided to take down a hostile POS in their space. They had eliminated a hostile TCU a week or so earlier but the POS they had managed to defend (if it was Solar Fleet or Red Alliance I don't remember). We managed to assemble a group of caps and a largish support fleet and headed off. We waited on a gate for a few minutes while listening to intel of the approaching fleet. And warped in they did, together with a main group of somewhere between 10-15 super caps. At one time there was a total of 250+ reds in system, and our FCs went down pretty fast as the super caps started making themselves felt and anhilating our caps.

It was a horrible rout. And I lost yet another ship, my BS this time. Atlas turned up a bit later and help getting the reds out. We managed to get a revenge fleet going where I got in on a small revenge kill - through my benefactor.

Today, tho - we've been seen a Solar fleet guy flying around our home systems. when he left I went shopping in C-J, hearing that the Solar guy is in the adjectant system. So I say I'm leaving C-J for 88a and ... there he is - on the gate, in a Merlin. I tell the people on our home channel this and leave him for a while to let the guys get there. When my invisibility timer reaches 0 I decide to engage - approach, mwd, scram, shoot ....
My Wolf is making good progress through the shields when Michelle in a Vaga reaches the gate. The Merlin is dead, but he gets off with his pod anyway...

Still a nice difference from losing all sorts of ships out here in null.

another kill =)

The first in ages. A mighty shuttle, a first red kill. I will not go into details on the thing as it was not particularly honorable - lol. More like a sever parking ticket. Maybe that'll teach him not to park whereever he wants, especially not in our systems. But prolly not.

There has been rumours of war and invasion of our home. And after a day of increasingly frequent fleets roaming around, making my head spin, and a day full of reported blackops around the major centers out here (and we live only 3 jumps off from 2 of them) we saw another wave of blobs forming up from Red Alliance and Solar fleet. Fuckturds even bubbled on of the stations. Then we saw an alliance mail about a diplomatic solution to the situation - we'll see what happens in the near future.

Back to ratting and getting my ships out then.
