EVE is 0.0 and WH space. Not 0.0 and Not WH space is not EVE.

10% tidi fighting really isn't bearable by any means. At that point, it's less playing the game for fun, and more just watching the server struggle to keep up. A snore fest for many, even the regular null fighters.

Somehow, I find it oddly smoothing that after everything that happened to them, TEST is still beingTEST by showing up late to the party and end up in the wrong system after all. I love you TESTies

Its a shame there isnt more to read about TEST, in the news. Really it just reads like a bunch of tryhards nowdays.

I struggle a little with the adjective "premier" being applied to Test. Props to BNI though.

Damn provi, always ruining my PvP.

TEST was "premier" insofar as for the longest time, they were the only such organization.

20 man provibloc? We had 75

I love the mental image of dozens of ships sitting in an empty system while the FC fumbles with a space-map, sweat dripping from his brow

Thanks for trying to clarify all that happened tubrug. It was very confusing trying to figure out what was going on around us as we saw numerous fleets warp in. Brave logi comms were quiet as opposed to the main blob but I found timing my rep cycles in tidi very aggravating. I dont know how you null guys do it.Side note that wasn't mentioned was that we maxed out mumble and had many pilots who were locked out and having to communicate with fleet commanders via fleet chat. Many props to fleet commanders who managed to herd everyone to the fight. The main logi FC disco'd and missed most of the first fight. Secondary fleet commander stepped in and did a great job.

Oh please do come around, I think you might be surprised. Also lol at not being able to muster the numbers. That isn't our problem.

Ah TEST... You never disappoint. You muster a tiny 80 man fleet, then go to the wrong system. gfgfgf

"TEST, [...] only managed to muster a fleet of 80 people"I realized how much I love EVE after that sentence. Can you imagine someone in any other MMO in existence unironically saying "we *only* managed to get 80 people"?

lol. There..? Their..? They're just not worth it. Still, if you turn the note into a paper plane...

"organization" might be a stretch

I note a touch of sarcasm in your post. God only nodes if it will be tolerated around here.

Snuff weren't, we were in Murethand when BNI first jumped in I think, along with SWEAR and a few Balex, we took the Ganked roam and then bailed because of the massive bait ball of stuff.

The 'Battle of the Blobs' took place in Gallente lowsec on December 7th. The aptly-named event involved Brave Collective, RvB, Test Alliance Please Ignore and various smaller participants.

The Brave Collective were present in their trademark Thorax fleet, with a total of 420 pilots split over two fleets - the largest turnout in the alliance's history. The fleets departed from their home system of Barleguet and made their way to Gallente factional warfare space.

The RvB fleet had around 150 members, their numbers boosted by Mangala Solaris's Ganked roam. They brought around twenty navy battlecruisers, as well as regular battlecruisers and Moas. TEST, who were allied with RvB in the engagement, only managed to muster a fleet of 80 people, along with some friends from the Caldari militia.

The first clash occured in Melmaniel, where RvB, Shadow Cartel and Suddenly Spaceships engaged the Brave fleet. The RvB fleet departed fairly early in the fight, leaving just the combined Shadow Cartel and Suddenly Spaceships AHAC fleet. They decided to linger on field for 15 minutes, despite being outnumbered 10-1 by the Brave fleet. Eventually they made the wise decision to flee; they had lost five Zealots, five Guardians and three Deimoses while only managing to kill thirty frigates and four Thoraxes.

The slightly weakened Brave fleet made their way to Murethand, where TEST and RvB were skirmishing with third parties on a gate. Local peaked at 650 as BNI joined in the fight, quickly destroying RvB's faction battlecruisers and then getting to work on TEST's Moas. An unaffiliated twenty man Provibloc fleet also showed up and shot both sides. Eventually the remnants of the Provibloc, RvB and TEST fleets left the field, and BNI claimed victory once more. This fight was even more one-sided: the Brave-aligned forces killed 93 ships while only losing sixteen.

Both sides enjoyed themselves, aside from some grup from the Brave side that TEST showed up late and in the wrong system. Take a look at the carnage on the fixed battlereport or take a look at the fight with all the stats on eve-kill.
