So, this Sunday we had the King of the Hill event.
King of the hill is an event where everyone brings a specific shiptype, we crap around a region looking for fights until only one is left standing. Every ship must have remote repair module. In this case we were told it would be Armor tanked battleships. And to form up at Mista for fights. Everyone puts cash into a pot, and the winner is the one that stays on the field. You ship will be blown up, and this isn’t about surviving, it’s about having way too much fun.
I brought an Armageddon. A neuting ship will always be useful in a world of cap heavy shield tanked ships. Fit below:

Yeah, some of the choices were due to my skills (Couldn’t fit T2 neuts, or T2 sentries.) However it puts out an impressive tank, and is good for the RR.
We formed up and headed out. It was a ragtag fleet of different ships (TFI, Typhoon, Apocalypse, Hyperions). A few others brought some T3 for fast locking and tackle, as well as some cruisers for utility. The hot shit was the bling fit Vindicator. I didn’t put out much hope that it would survive.
Surprisingly our fleet didn’t get much attention, most others getting out of our way, despite us begging in local for people to kill us. However we were in the heart of CVA, so it was only a matter of time before they pounced. And they did, at range, with some kiting ships. They set up at 40km from the gate.
We could have played cat and mouse, but that wasn’t the idea of the fleet. We lemminged into them, and battle was formed.
Do you know how you can tell it was fleet success? They brought in Capitals to finish us off. Holy crap. And the fleet comms was packed up with laughing and joking afterwards.

After some pretty hard morale hits, this was an amazing fleet to be part of. So much fun!
