War Update: Esoteria and Impass

Could never understand the mentality behind self-destruct, the SD will now show up on KM anyways. Do killboards really matter?

There is always hope of tackle bubble going down just for second or some other distraction like another hostile SB gang doing a bomb run to whore on KMs. As long as you are alive, there is a chance. I had been in cap fleets that got jumped by 30+ suppers and got away with a 7% structure because a split second bubble drop. The SD is for pussies.If tackled by a dictor bubble in a supper try to get to a jump cap. If jump cap is impossible (getting cap neutted or need to run damage resists/rep modules then align to some safe spot or some random moon on a planet that has the most moons. If you are lucky and dictor pilot fucks up you can jump away or warp to a safe spot and cloak. If no cloak is fitted, bounce warps and keep making bookmarks while in warp. You should be with in jump cap soon enough to get out.If anything I would stick around and just to make fun of their lack of DPS.

As far as I know SD also makes sure you don't drop anything that could benefit the enemy.

HBC are not in impass grinding structures, they are grinding esoteria, Insidious Empire ChaChing and Unclaimed do the grinding for Impass.

Or just log off so all your hardeners (and other modules) turn off, speeding up the process while you no longer need to sit in your chair. :)

It used to be that self-destructing would destroy all modules on the ship as well. In the case of a super that would usually be a good 3 or 4 billion at least. Before the patch it'd also deny a killmail, which people do care about, despite how stupid anyone else thinks that might be.Does self destruct destroy modules still or is it completely pointless now?

Some people suffer from this mindset were they can't let there enemy "get kills on them". I think at some point such deaths didn't show on killmails or such, but I don't really pew pew that much, nor have I played Eve too long.I do suspect the tendency to do it (along with pulling out implants in pods) started of in the "Lewt PVP" groups were keeping a green killboard mattered than you know... winning battles. And reducing there "loss" made them look better to the peers.Honestly I dislike people who obsess over such things to such a degree. PVP activity is more important, along with isk destroyed, than effecentcy. Losing expensive ships is bad yes, but as long as the reason you lost it is understandable, it shouldn't be issue.

We had alot of similar problems in the CFC with timers back in the war with Dotbros in Tribute. They timed their stations to come out of RF in auz TZ, complicating our advances substantially, but the internal incident with dotbros, if memory serves, almost or totally got rid of any opposition we had. Timers did cause some trouble for us anyways.

Stop spearding misinformation, you didn't win anything you bought the land. According to C0ven's diplo (Xeovar Stoner), Pandemic Legion has bought Esoteria for 50 bil (Somereset being the 3rd party).2012.12.01 02:36:38 Player Donation 52,500,000,000.00 ISK 55,383,326,102.52 ISK [r] Shadoo deposited cash into Somerset Mahm's accountSource: http://eve-centrala.com.pl/ind...GG PL (and other Goon pets) nontheless, the loss of our small RMT empire has been a trully painful an experience, but we will get Esoteria back in no time.

The grinding of sovereignty in the South is continuing at a steady pace for the HBC, but it has lost some of its initial pace. Esoteria is being ground down at a slower pace than expected and Impass sees the birth of a new project.

 

Esoteria dreaming

Grinding down sovereignty in Esoteria is proving to be harder than expected... not because of heavy opposition, but because of the sheer number of timers the region has presented to the HBC. Fleet numbers and enthusiasm are slacking which is quite understandable, nobody likes shooting structures all day long. Initial response to the Esoteria takeover was, however, very energetic with the fall of C9N-CC , a system that belonged to Esoteria ancients for years and years.

What little resistance the HBC has seen in Esoteria are harassment actions, often in the form of small Tornado gangs from defenders like Stain Empire, C0VEN and other residents. Other forms of countering HBC operations consist of repping up structures after they come out of reinforced at impossible times. The coalition did manage to buy much of Inver Brass' sovereignty and it hopes to push through its current operations and reinforce the last few structures remaining.

 

Impass brawling

This southern region is seeing the birth of a new project. Sovereignty is being divided between a new mini-coalition and future residents should include Insidious Empire and Cha Ching PLC. They are being aided by the greater HBC in grinding down structures.

Recently, those future residents managed to take down an X-Com inc supercarrier. A 20-man Out of Sight. hero gang managed to pin down 2 Nyxs, some carriers and a dreadnought in TWJ-AW, although the fleet was already in an anchored bubble they had put up themselves.

Unclaimed. and Cha Ching PLC were forming up a fleet to hit that same system, unaware of the tackled ships. Together with Out of Sight, they managed to hold one of the Nyxs, a Revelation and a Thanatos in place. Pandemic Legion also joined in at the end of the engagement. While coalition drones - Unclaimed. and Cha Ching PLC in this instance - took care of the supercarrier, the coalition subcapital fleet primaried the enemy Naga gang supporting the X-com inc capital ships. Unclaimed. and Cha Ching PLC initially did not have any logistics on the field and suffered several losses before the Naga gang was killed. X-com inc pilots were constantly reshipping in an attempt to save the tackled Nyx.

The Nyx pilot saw that any attempt to escape was in vain and started the self-destruct sequence, but HBC forces managed to kill it before self-destruct was completed.
