RvB vs. E-UNI: The Second Battle of Aldrat

Avatar
"... while E-UNI sat in the safety of their bubble" ... "... the E-UNI fleet - destroyer and battleship heavy - landed on the RvB fleet at zero"No, E-Uni was not hiding, neither landing on the RvB fleet at zero... The password to the POS was changed (SPAI?), E-Uni guys were ejected from the bubble, and the ones warping to it were redirected ON the fleet.What happened next was a slaughter, and I'm not saying everything else was fine on the Uni side (lots of errors were made, but it was still a very enjoyable whelp :D ), but this trouble surely created a lot of panic

Oh we completed our suicide mission. We didn't kill as many RvB as we would have liked but we made it up by killing all the turds trying to ninja salvage :killboardsgreen:

The Uni fleet warped out of the POS and back, with Logi landing at 30km. That was very much landing at 0, not being ejected.

Explain why the Uni Logis landed 50km behind their fleet then. That was a very deliberate warp-in on their part. Not a POS bouncing snafu.

It was a good fight, and great fun!Before the fight started some neutral shot at me for... some reason and got himself concorded. In the end, lots of yum KM's and I never even went into armor (was in a BC). The TEST smartbombing bit was kinda cute, if nothing else. Also, our logi were outstanding. They really outdid themselves. :)

There was about 25 guys who were starbursted from the POS, but I watched them all run inside away from the fight.No matter the details, it was lot's of fun.

I'm not sure why you are bothering with the damage control, noone expects eve uni to be anything other than shit...

Still waiting for the POS killmail to turn up.....

I'm calling BS. Why would you warp your armor BS fleet to anywhere but zero on our fleet? Not only did it seem intentional, it seemed the right thing to do. Not like all those destroyers would've been any good at 40km.When the fleet landed, there were still at least 30 E-UNI sitting in the POS who then burned in to the fight. Maybe somebody with roles changed the password to get the cowards to come out and play.Anyway, it was a good long fight, we spiked TiDi hard, and despite the problems with Red-on-Blue (and vice versa) reps generating suspect flags, our logi were legendary. We were on the ball, I'm genuinely sorry your FC(s) made critical errors, but same time same place next year?

You should come to Delve sometime; we do this stuff every night - minus the tedious pos shots of course.

I took part in the first one... was epic. Main battle lasted around an hour with constant reshipping (RvB moved its ships into Aldrat a few hours before the main fleet arrived). We had no logi, but had the DPS to power through the shield reps. We lost the battle, but everyone enjoyed the war.

What looks to have happened is the permissions were changed on the pos as the Uni fleet warped in, which kicked out boosters as well as a number of T3 snipers that were forming up.

I was in the t3 BC sniper gang, we formed and prepared independently from the main fleet and were very successful in killing a hand full of BCs. Our preparation was started days before unlike thr unis that started prep one hour before the pos came out of reinforced. We didnt whelp. The few "snipers" that were forc..given to us warped in late and died

On February 14th, Red Versus Blue's wardec with EVE University went live. As Red Federation and Blue Republic redeployed from their respective stagings to Aldrat, Professor Clio laid out the plans: An E-UNI POS would be the ultimate target, and this time, it would die. On the 15th, the 9-9 POS in Aldrat was reinforced.  It would come out of reinforced at 20:00 the next day. Last year, RvB hatched a similar plot to destroy an E-UNI POS in highsec, but was foiled by the joining of mercenaries with E-UNI to defend the structure.  Still, the massive fight was good for the spirits and the killboards alike. 

On the 16th, RvB formed up at 1800 to incap some POS mods that had been repped, and a 120-strong battleship fleet pushed E-UNI back into their shields. At 1900 the POS-bashing fleet had begun forming in earnest, and as the FC sorted out armor and shield wings, E-UNI began forming as well. By 1930 local in Aldrat reached over 750, with RvB needing two fleets to fit everybody, and Professor Clio fleet-warped his massive armor battleship blob to 9-9.

Again, the E-UNI fleet retreated into their POS, having repaired a few guns and ewar modules. Neutrals took advantage of Crimewatch mechanics to aggress Blue logi repping Red logi (and vice versa) without the possibility of retribution from the fleet as a whole, while E-UNI did not encounter this problem at all. RvB took this as a challenge rather than a dealbreaker, and continued forming elsewhere in system to take down the POS when it came out of reinforced at 2000.

At 2010 RvB landed at 9-9 and began shooting the structure, while E-UNI sat in the safety of their bubble. As RvB battered the POS, the E-UNI fleet - destroyer and battleship heavy - landed on the RvB fleet at zero. Those hiding in the pos burned out to join the fray. The fight lasted around 20 minutes with TiDi reaching 33%, but RvB held the field and turned back to the pos. E-UNI attempted to field a T3 BC sniper fleet as the pos entered structure, but the second tackle-heavy RvB fleet made quick work of them. Ponywaffe also arrived in smartbombing battleships, but perhaps realizing that the RvB fleet was not as dense, numerous or soft as expected, they left without completing their suicide mission.

GFs were shared, and the second Battle of Aldrat was a stunning success for RvB.
