Battle Report: A Weekend In Wormholes with POSHU

Avatar
If your scout has to warp to a POCO to figure out who owns it, he's doing it wrong. Besides, it's pretty widely known that NoHo live in J150020, it's one of only two c6-c6 Magnetars (three guesses who lives in the other, first two don't count).

Wait , enemy agrees to fight in your home system to make it more interesting. Everything is fine and almost equal ... until 2 "prepared" dreads comes to finish them off. If i am the enemy id spit on you next time you arrange a "fight"...Second day was better, fighting against the odds in a nice 3 way battle.

Those may have been people reshipping to dreads stashed at the POS. They were not clear on that point.

I think it was a case of "takes less time to warp to a POCO to figure out which c6 magnetar we stumbled into than pull it up on the map."

um, you already covered the Day two stuff on this very site three days ago http://themittani.com/media/m%...

Totally missed the point. You can just d-scan and click on the POCO from the list to get the owners name.

I was going to say the same thing....

you are fucking bad at wormholes, stop writing....умирают в огне

Or you could.. you know.. look at the corp ticker that displays in space when you hover over a POCO? No warping needed!

So if most wormholes have statics, what do the rest of them have?

This seems like a well written and beautiful EN24 article."by Bagehi" And I was right!

2 dreads do not have anywhere near 40k dpstry half that

In a C5 Magnetar they get a massive DPS bonus

The other comments got it right, any half decent wormhole scout tell you a lot about a system within seconds of jumping.Stay in null. Leave wormholes to wormhole residents, less embarrassing for all involved.

And AHARM pops in with their usual sniper gang so they don't actually have to engage or commit to anything...Though it's kind of funny, in this article they are like more of a footnote, tribute to their lack of relevance in w-space.

we had archon for reps on field only, we had cap pilots ready to engage if norcorp decided to bring subcap fleet + 3 dreads - what we expected. When they jumped archon to catch up with reps, we brought the dreads. Just to kill the archon. Afterwards the dreads disengaged. Thanny was with them to provide refitting services. Dreads were never intereded to be used against subcap fleet.

Actualy first dscan gave us the answer. There are only coule magnetar c6 with c6 static. Aharm and Norcorp tags are well known, we didnt had to warp anywere. Warping was done to find what of the ships are actualy online. After finding nobody, call was made to contact them via local.

I call it delay of delivering news :)

My Moros alone has 24k dps with no implants in that wh. You are mistaken.

POSHU did not warp out at all, as there was a bubble up for 90% of the fight. Our scout did not have to warp around to find out who owned the wormhole. Their lack of scouting is why they didn't know about our dreads. We had the dreads because we fully expected them to, like every other corp/alliance would have, jumped in at least 1 dread and an archon or 2 dreads with guardians and subcaps. Our primary carrier was an archon, not a thanny. The thanny came in to provide refitting services to our dreads "just in case". Our dreads only shot at the carrier, they were not used against subcaps.

Jesus, some bitter comments in here, as well as more than a few mistakes in the BR, don't know where you got it from, but the simple facts are, we rolled into NoHo's home, we ask for fight, they oblige, for once POSHU get more green on the KB than red, everyone calls good fun and leave happy after seeing some internet spaceships explode.Doesn't get much simpler than that (well there's me, but I'm irrelevant)

all wh's have statics besides a static they can also have a second wh that can lead to everywhere

Or, you know, rightklick on POCOs in overview and show info :-)

This is the most disgusting thing in eve - pre arranged fights. Makes me vomit...

It was a fun fight, bit undisciplined by NoHo crew but we were hustling to find bodies having so few pew players online and ready to go. Wasn't all that happy to see 2 dreads land to poke at my archon in a magnetar, was happy to see em not used trying to blap subcaps once the archon was toast.The only "arranged" nature of the fight was "Hey, we are here, want to fight?", followed by an agreement, given we had higher numbers, that we'd jump to them. Oh, and no podding. Aside from that, it was free for all, no numbers limits, no ship type limits etc. Just an agreement to go shoot each other.We knew they had dreads ready to rock, but stuff it, its just space pixels and the presence of an entity that WANTS TO FIGHT, rather than crit their WH, or park 5 caps the other side, or simply POS up, deserves respect.And their triage pilot was right on the money. He did a fantastic job in keeping his fleet alive without loss.

Yeah... it does work that way. I'm not a wormholer or do the PI thing, so I misinterpreted "the scout checked a poco" oops.

Exactly.

Welcome to Eve circa 2013.

It's funny you say that Fradle, as every time you all roll into our home you ask in local if we want to fight... And when other alliances roll into us, they'll take a shot at a poco.. Basically the same thing now isn't it?So you can come off your high horse now.

AHARM pops in to whore on some mails so they can pretend to be a relavent entity... pity there about as relevant insidious design.

I say that was epic fight. Must have been difficult and challenging for you. Imagine the FCing....

yeah someone had to keep the fleet from collapsing under the laughter when the 'reinforcements' arrived

 

DAY ONE (1/5/2013)

POSHU was looking for a fight.  They spent some time cycling wormholes in search of targets worth moving against.  

Many wormhole systems have "static" wormholes which will always link to a specific type of system, such as always high sec, or always to a C3.  Closing one opens another to a similar system.

They had a static C6 exit in their system, which guarantees a good time, assuming you get systems with people from a similar time zone (and that haven't been stomped on already).  After a bit of work, they saw potential life in the magnetar system (x2 damage but half the range and tracking) of J150020 - POCOs and POSes with a few ships in them on scan.  The scout warped to one of the POCOs to identify what group was in the system and found it tagged NOHO (No Holes Barred).  With fingers crossed that the system wasn't abandoned, the scout announced himself in local.  NOHO responded.  After a some discussion, they came to an agreement.  Because NOHO had greater numbers (both in system and to call upon, being five times the size of POSHU), they agreed upon the artifical cap created by jumping into POSHU's system to fight (the wormhole could only take the mass of a carrier and change).  

The scout returned to POSHU's system as both sides prepared for the fight.  POSHU waited at zero on the worm hole for NOHO and were greeted by a Phobos, followed by another 14 of NOHO’s gang.  Four Guardians and a bunch of Tech 3 cruisers jumped in and began brawling.  POSHU had a Thanatos in the wormhole for logistics and drone support.  The Phobos was going down quickly under the multiplied damage effect of the C5 magnetar in J164621, but was able to escape back through the wormhole before dying.  The NOHO Guardians went down quickly, meanwhile, the Thanatos reps were able to keep up with NOHO's damage.  More NOHO ships began streaming into the system.  Despite the reinforcements, NOHO was still unable to break tanks (partially due to warpin/out) nor tank incoming fire.  With half a dozen ships down, NOHO sent an Archon through, nearly collapsing the wormhole.

The Archon immediately entered triage, tipping the battle to their favor with its remote repping power.  Unfortunately for NOHO, POSHU had a trump card in the form of a Moros and Revelation waiting at a POS for just this moment.  They warped in and the self-trapped Archon quickly went down under what was easily 30k-40k dps between the two dreads.  The remaining NOHO ships mass jumped back out, ceding the field of battle.  POSHU has provided a video of the fight.  Worth the watch.

The battle report can be found here.

DAY TWO (1/6/2013)

On the heels of the previous fight, POSHU wasn't expecting much action.  They found a link to a C3 and, surprise surprise, it was another "known" w-space entity - Kill It With Fire.  The scout nosed around and decided it was just a small camp of guardians and a few Tech 3 ships looking for kills, not a full force.  POSHU formed up and engaged with an Archon and whatever else was available.  What looked like a handful of tech 3 ships with logistics support soon turned into 35 enemies once battle had begun.  KILL was breaking the archon's reps, and the sheer number of logistics they brought stemmed their losses after the first few minutes of fighting.  

Hoping to break the logi chain, the POSHU FC called for Bhaalgorns to come in and neut down the KILL logistics.  They saw some initial success with this tactic.  However, all the "shiny" on the field (as well as the promise of killmails) was enough to convince more to join in on the fighting.  After 30 minutes of fighting, AHARM arrived on the field with tier 3 snipers and began picking off ships from either side.  With their Revelation and a Bhaalgorn going down, POSHU retreated from the system to lick their wounds.  The bulk of the fight was recorded and available for viewing here.
