Please, we all know it was components or something. On another note, I was in one of those Machariels, had a load of fun running around and killing random things.Fighting IRC is always fun, and they always manage to fight (even if they do get slaughtered)

I was one of the IRC pilots there, and I think this article is great.Actually I was one of the logistics pilots trying to keep the Maelstroms alive. It turns out that 250 drakes worth of DPS is quite a lot, heh. That was a fun fight, even though it ended badly for our Maelstroms.Pity we couldn't have a repeat of the first big brawl. Oh well. Maybe next time!

i have great respect for IRC, as they actually do come to fights if you want to brawl (except if they're outnumbered 2,5:1, but that's kinda understandable). i always enjoy roaming through cobalt edge, knowing that sooner or later our 10 dudes BC roam will be chased by 40 IRC guys :)

this is why IRC are great no matter how much they lose they still fight on. props irc many "better foe's" have given up but you still fight the good fight where they did not most of the time.

Yeah and I'm currently flying my Jovian Battleship that shoots flying pigs out of cannons that do 1 million damage each while my engines spurt out trails of free isk as I fly around the galaxy.

There must be some serious pride in IRC knowing your going to get slaughtered by your enemies and get raped by Vaf/irc ship prices....Even if you kill 100 goons, their isk comes from tech, so they dont give a shit about their losses. While in irc space you have to take pride making 40-60m an hour ratting. In the end if you drink the IRC kool aid long enough, the HC will leave you with nothing in the end... Look at their alliance history and how many corps have left because of their shitty leadership. Being a Fc for irc is even worse because you know your going to be setup one way or another....either though spys on ts, the hc telling then enemy fleet what you have before the fight, or the best one is the kool aid drinking fools who can not fit a ship even with the fit being shoved in their face. Irc can say they have a super/titan fleet, but like hell they can to use it, so they end up only being able to rat with them....The best irc can say is that they have space that no one wants and their the punching bag of eve...if that is how you want to pride yourself in eve and think that is the best you can do...you deserve everything that happens to you.

Note: Kcolor is the CFC's primary bomber FC, and his report is from the CFC's perspective.

Intrepid Crossing's CSAA in Q-VTWJ was reinforced for the third time this week. The first time it came out saw a 1,000 player battle between IRC (with their allies NCdot and S2N) and the CFC, resulting in massive casualties on both sides and IRC's successful defense of the structure. The second was an AU TZ timer - this was not contested. The third timer ended at a reasonable hour on Sunday night. After the fantastic battle of October 31, both sides were eager for more.

First Blood

A few hours before the CSAA timer formup, the CFC, under the leadership of Dabigredboat and Mister Vee, decided to poke the bear early.  A full Drake fleet of 250 pilots was formed and made the journey into Cobalt Edge, trailed by an NCdot sniper fleet all the while. As in the first battle of Q-V, the gate was heavily camped and bubbled, but the CFC piled straight in regardless. Waiting at range was an IRC Maelstrom fleet; Clusterfuck Coalition Drakes immediately burned towards them. IRC stubbornly held still, losing 50 battleships before warping off.  NCdot's snipers jumped into system shortly after, but did not stick around for long, as the ravenous Drake swarm moved to deal with them as they had the IRC Alpha fleet. This was a bloody defeat for IRC, though without much strategic significance.

Main Course

Finally, the timer was coming up - once again in US prime, at 0200 November 5.  Hoping for as enjoyable a fight as that in October, the CFC brought another 500+ pilots: a Drakefleet, an Abaddon fleet, a frigate force, bombers, and even a few Machariels.

Unfortunately for the defenders, they lacked the numbers that had assembled for the first timer, NCdot and Nulli having moved to Immensea in the meantime. With 200 Intrepid Coalition pilots facing off against 500 CFC members, a fight, understandably, did not occur. Either discouraged by the large number disadvantage or the earlier thumping they took, IRC made the correct call and did not engage.  The POS died, and with it went a rumoured baby Erebus.

With Vale of the Silent falling rapidly to the CFC, further expeditions in search of 'good fights' seem likely - into Cobalt Edge or beyond.
