Mittens, please tell me why you let DBRB do stuff when you have Laz and other`s?In NCDOT we always knew when we saw Laz we where gonna have a fight and when we saw DBRB we would actually breath a lot easier. Can Laz not FC supers? Because even if he might not be able to you sure as shit know DBRB CANNOT, hell at this point I would take 14 day trial guys over him and just wish and pray :)Really we learned to respect Laz, and out of 25k people I can`t imagine yo not having someone better, and all the "He is cool to newbs" there has to be another guy who at least is decent and cool to newbs, I would take D-Team Fc`s in NCDOT/Nulli/PL and im not so arrogant as to think you guys dont have talent at least equiv to our backups...Is it that you value his loyalty over skill? That would make sense to me more than "He is cool"

Well so fucking what, in that case? It's not like it's some big secret that Shadoo planned to set up some kind of staged battles or whateverthefuck he was going to do. Why hide it if he was going to do it at all? Seriously, take a step back here and realize the leaps you're taking to say that this happened for any reason other than DBRB being a clueless fuckup.

LOL. We could have only smoked you with four large alliances. Well played
Avatar
Jumping instead of bridging. The one thing most responsible for titan losses.
Avatar
that combined don't even outnumber goonswarm, let alone the other 10 CFC alliancesor do FA grunts consider the CFC just one large alliance?

I'm saying it's a possibility, calm down and stop sperging.

Well damn son there's a ton of comments critical of the CFC here and you don't see them getting deleted, do you?We delete them when the writing is evident of an extra chromosome.

Powers deleted a shit ton of comments from the BattleBadger fleet article and banned the posters for calling HBC and CFC risk averse cowards.

Not yet they haven't, but I'm sure it's only a matter of time before the most critical ones "disappear".

Also if they're so stupid why not just leave them up to be mocked instead of deleting them?

Well, would have it the old way where the node crashed and you blackscreen on jumpin in, or just jump in hope for the best and shut the fuck up and shoot stuff, cause these type of fights happen EVERY damn day in Eve right?

not anymore; i'd wager he's thinner and more swole than you now.

You do have to undock it from the CSAA.

It's ~content~

And you believed that?When Dbrb was streaming the camp of Black legion into a station I got to hear first hand some of his stories and my word its almost as bad as the propaganda from bob circa 2006-2008.I have flown with many fc's that multitask through dualboxing/tripleboxxing or in one finnish guys case quadrupleboxing
Avatar
1 trillion isk is a small price to pay to never have DBRB in capswarm ever again. For this is my dream going forward.

I got my nyx out in about 10% armor early in the fight... that may be the second PL nyx that you got reports of dying.

Two comments were deleted from the battlebadger article. One was "shut the fuck up cfc slave" and the other was complaining about you getting blacklisted from commenting (and you're commenting, so much for that?) Also only one comment has been deleted from this article and the entirety of that comment was "rofl"None of those comments were critical of the CFC, they were just stupid.
Avatar
I suspect that they're just disappearing into the bottom of the comment area since disqus sorts by votes by default. We can't stop readers from downvoting comments into the ground.

Oh god, DBRB teaching his amazing tactics? I can imagine how that class went:1: bring lots of ships, get them onto the enemy fleet.2: if #1 fails, call for more ships.3: if #2 fails, deflect blame, blow off losses.
Avatar
This is so true. Most of us super pilots knew this day was coming. At least it won't happen again (under DBRBs leadership), and its not like our best FC was being used this evening. The CFC will be fine.
Avatar
I was there. Things became damn near unworkable at around 1100 people in local and it was still spiking. Server went to it's knees. I tried to GTFO at about 1400 in local and Eve lost me and my ship somewhere between Asakai and Okkamon. Was good fun though.

Did you even read and understand his comment before posting this vitriol? He's talking about apples and you just start randomly raging about oranges.

Planned wargames are fun..... I am amazed Shadoo was able to predict this 4 days ago.... That's some boss intel

Yes because there's no way that could be bullshit from Goon bullshitter #1.

I remember him losing capfleet privileges after ROL massacred 20 carriers (mine included) in Feythabolis, back when carriers mattered and 20 was some outrageous number.So, never say never.
Avatar
This rings a little hollow with the CFC being the aggressors in this one instance.
Avatar
It's why we can't have nice things.
Avatar
So that's why Mittens was so desperate for no TEST war. Tenbux that he wants supers addes to the NIP.
Avatar
So basically DBRB was ironically calling himself not a good FC, but an "elite FC", and that he was one of the only FC's that multitask.......and people actually bought it?
Avatar
As much fun as Eve is, the game was simply unplayable in the middle of this. Bad CCP!

[quote[ FA are the biggest bitches. If the CFC was smart, you would have handed FA to TEST. Just like all the other Damage Control (Like when you lose a SC), you should have said "They are douches and whiny faggots. Now they can fight TEST". You could then have only stepped in if they started taking SOV. Instead you might lose everything. I hope you didn't pay PL in Moons to not start a war. [/quote] Fixed that to the best of my abilities. I really wish these people that threw random insults could at least learn to spell. It might make it so that people actually pay attention. Please good sir/ma'am, please use at least somewhat proper grammar when insulting.(I probably have a few grammar mistakes of my own. It would be only fitting since I am criticizing someone else's grammar. I would submit that mine are nowhere near the person above me's indiscretions.)

It's true..my two more active FCs at the moment are constantly losing their alt...constantly.
Avatar
Did it sound like I believed that? I believe he is terrible Fc that is only successful when he massively outnumbers his opponents.

I was there! I whored a thanny! \o/ lol

I should just note that DBRB is a great character and one of the 'good' guys in EVE. He plays it the right way -- not giving a shit and having fun.

Boring staged fuckfest. Do not want.

Jesus christ, fuck off with your whining people, THIS type of fight is why we play Eve. That was fuck-win awesome and I'll gladly answer the call the next call to arms with the hope if it happening again.

lol "learn how to spell." that shit is old...

This is what EVE is all about, fair play for chucking so much isk into the field.
Avatar
And this is why Capital ships in EvE are broken. We told CCP in 2005, we told them 2006, then they introduce Titans, we told them again, and then everything went stright downhill from that point-of-no-return. The "fun"-EvE died 2006. RIP EvE Online.

I LOVE this. This is what makes EvE great. Giant battles of thousands of ships that accidentally the whole thing.

i dont think any of his midslots were active modules, but idk how he set up his modules tbh.oh, no, he had a sebo. yeah, turning those off is pretty much death for any supercap.

I lost a Super and a dread does that give me more or less right to bitch about a content creating FC?Hel didn't even load grid properly which sucked. Next time...

Wait, what was that Riverini? I thought nullsec was just a big blue donut. Oh, you must have been referring to the donut you've been humping in your hand. I agree, you should be tired of that by now.

Wow.

A Goonswarm op led by Dabigredboat went haywire in Asakai in Black Rise tonight when the titan jumped instead of bridged, and was promptly pounced by a PL supercap group.

The GSF op was intended to ambush a lowsec skirmish over a tower between Drunk n'Disorderly and Liandri Covenant. 

Thinking that they could outnumber the PL force, GSF called in more supers to escalate the engagement, which resulted in a full-on cross-nullsec rush to Asakai to get in on the brawl. Black Legion, NCdot, HBC and 401K as well as lowsec locals have turned up to the fight, which not only is experiencing a total TiDi-lock at 10% speed, the slowest TiDi level possible.

As of the time of writing the CFC force has lost at least one Ragnarok Titan, one Hel supercarrier, against two PL Nyxes. However, there are several hundred carriers and dreadnaughts on the field, as well as hundreds of subcaps. It looks like the CFC is about to be dealt a very ugly butcher's bill due to this error of judgement. 

 

BR: http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=16068221 

 

Update 4:06 EVE: CFC Supercaps have mostly evacuated; as this is a lowsec fight, Titans can't DD and dictor bubbles do not work (which is why having a supercap brawl in lowsec is often inadvisable), apparently only one remaining CFC Titan is on the field (A Levi) though there are a number of supercarriers left. Subcaps and regular caps have not yet attempted to disengage. 

Update: Second CFC Titan down, DBRB's Levi. CFC still has supercarriers on the field. 

Update 4:37: Seven CFC supercarriers remain on the field, so far two dead CFC Titans, one dead CFC supercarrier, to 2 dead PL Nyxes. It is highly likely that many of the remaining supercarriers on the field will die, and usually there are a few crashed/logged out supers killed in the aftermath of these battles - the death toll is still rising! 

 

Update: A third CFC Titan, which had disconnected and blackscreened, has died; the total number of dead supercarriers on the CFC side is estimated to be approximately ~5 but it's not certain yet.

The Butcher's Bill 

It looks like at the end of the battle, the CFC has lost ~44 Dreads, 29 Carriers, 5 Supercarriers and 3 Titans to 10 Carriers, 6 Dreads, and one Supercarrier killed: a complete rout. Initial reports suggested that two Pandemic Legion Nyxes died, but this hasn't been confirmed on Eve-Kill yet. 

Alliances involved: 262 
Corporations involved: 715
Players involved: 3161 

That's a lot of spaceship action, right there. 

 

Update: Initial reports in the insanity of the fight suggested that there had been a DUST crash; this turned out to not be the case, merely a coincidence with some servers during a fight which took more than five hours. We have this from CCP Explorer:

"There were reports about this Twitter today and in Mittani’s first report. I asked around, looked at emails and warnings/errors and I found nothing to substantiate this. There were DUST battleserver issues overnight but they were completely unrelated to this fight."
