Actually it requires a perpetual amount of skill, they have to bubble before any of Nulli's fleet initiated warp, there's the chance of Nulli warping to a ping spot above the gate, the titan jumping instead of bridging, bubble out of alignment with the entrance gate, Nulli's scout seeing the dictor so on so forth.If you claim to be the messiah of bombing, then by all means, attempt to do it yourself.

Rooks and Kings are awesome

setting up multi planar stealth bombing runs is a streak of piss compared to nailing a good ol' smartbombing battleship fleet you moron.

RnK were dropping those smartbombing battleships on our frig and BC gangs all through Providence for the past few weeks. After the Nulli/Kadeshi naga gang peaced out from HED I started to give chase to them, but as soon as our scouts said that RnK dropped on them I knew exactly what had happened and chose not to follow.One could say that they were caught in a Typhoon of bad luck that day.

I think Tier3s aren't so hard for them (only 17 pipebombers here?) - looking forward to footage of their 40 man pipebombing runs on big EHP targets.Was a bit more to the story from reddit and channels.. TEST nearly warped into them with their fleet as well (chasing Nulli) ,but luckily turned around in time and went home and not into the fireball.

RnK used to pipebomb AHAC/T3 fleets in syndicate a lot, thats a bit more EHP than Tier 3's

Literally what happened on fleet comms:"Oh man a drag bubble, and a cyno, is test dropping us?""Geddons and typhoons? What?""OH GOD SMARTBOMBS""Did we just get Supernova'd" I ask"Yes"Almost fell out of my chair laughing

You are dumb and wrong, and should feel bad about it.

Using smartbombers is harder than normal bombers, Kcolor said so when discussing the Nulli attempt to Smartbomb a drakefleet.

I have on good authority; a collection of these 'Pipebombings' will be released in video format soon.

Hah R+K were just on our podcast talking about this on Monday. http://declarationsofwar.com/?...

How bad do you need to be to warp a fleet into a drag bubble?

Not entirely true, the HBC fleet had scouts and a dictor that gave chase to the Nulli fleet. The HBC dictor was whelped in sv5, and the frig scout made it through the smart-bomb camp that whelped Nulli via a very well timed warp in and MWD pulse combination. The frig scout informed us in comms that Nulli had just whelped to a Rooks and Kings smart bomb fleet which caused comms to almost crash with the ensuing laugher and amusement. The HBC FC did make comment that it was a bad way to whelp after at least offering a good fight.

Bring more fights. It's been too quiet in Immensia.

RnK are good at what they do, unless you have complete overwhelming superiority and information, engaging them is a dangerous idea. They are famous for a reason, its not worth whelping your ship for a foolish nonexistent chance of victory.

heeeeeeeeyoooooooooooooooooooo. on fire here.

They did it in the past: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v... Love it!

Smartbomb fleets are a very high risk/high payout fleet type. If the ships are not placed exactly where the enemy fleet is landing, the short range of the smartbombs means that very little damage is applied and the fleet will likely get welped. If it works, however, hilarity ensues. The way it generally works is the enemy fleet cynoes in the SB fleet exactly where the other fleet is warping to, generally in an intercepting bubble. This leaves the enemy fleet precious seconds where they take the full damage of the smartbombs before they can warp off. Realistically, anything that warps in directly into the smartbombs dies instantly before being able to warp again.

In this case, Nulli Secunda had been fighting an HBC fleet comprised of Rokhs with Nagas (generally a difficult fight at best). Dani Eli and Unite's FC ships were both destroyed and podded, and after losing a number of Nagas without causing much damage, the Nulli fleet wisely decided to bug out. The HBC decided to not follow the fleet, and found out a few minutes later that the fleet had dissappeared.

The reason for the disappearance: Rooks and Kings had gotten into the mix and managed to surprise the Nulli fleet with a Typhoon/Geddon smartbombing fleet. RnK executed the operation perfectly, cynoing the fleet on a drag bubble just as the Naga fleet warped. The result was a hilariously effective smartbomb run... In total, 55 Nulli Secunda ships were lost, essentially the whole fleet (and pods).

After seeing a few attempts at smartbombing fleets in the last couple of months, specifically on the Northern front, RnK finally managed to remind everyone how effective they can be when run successfully.
