Time for some fights.
Our CEO decided to do a quick roam, so we got into some shield fit cruisers and started wandering. I took a Scimitar as I am such a Logibro, but I threw in a 250mm autocannon in a high slot instead of my usual smart-bomb for Kill-mail shenanigans.
A few jumps down and we find ourselves on the other end of a gate with 300 guys in the other side. 300 vs 12. Not good odds, So we hang around the gate hoping to grab a few kills, but to no avail. However we did find the flow path for pods on the way back, so we cracked three empty eggs before returning. Not too bad, even if we didn’t get a fight.
Next up, a quick tower popping. It was slow, so we dropped a few dreads to speed things along. Always helpful to keep the isk flowing for our SRP.
The 7pm roam was the main event though. 40 of us in Nano Shield ships. I was part of a 4 man logi wing (3 scimitars and a scythe). No specific ship, just fast brawling damage and good tank. I kept my corp scimitar build with the EM smart-bomb 2 in the highs. Fit below.

The roam was mostly without much incident. A few people tried to bait us into station games. No dice. But we heard of a nice 60 man rupture gang just waiting to be kicked in.
Time to clean house.
We sat on the opposite gate to them and started to burn away as it got bubbled in preparation. The Logi wing went to get some distance and keep the DPS between us as the Ruptures jumped in.
The Rupture DPS came in hard. Our lone scythe took stupid damage and was pounded into structure as he was primaried, a few slivers of HP left.
Then the reps landed.
Our reps were keeping him up. And the frustration for the other fleet began.
The DPS was not breaking the reps, and it wasn’t as fast as it needed to be to get ships off the field. And we were melting the ruptures fast.
ECM drones were swarming me, and I got jammed once, but that Smartbomb, such an MVP, cleared them off in short order, and we were back in the game. It was frantic and awesome.
Things were looking up.
Then Pizza arrived with a T3 fleet and POP, I was dead. Oracles and Tornadoes. DAMN YOU!!!
Lots and lots of alpha. With our logi wing gone after 4 alpha hits (no damage to popped instantly) we were done. I fled the field and so did the rest if our guys. We couldn’t engage the T3’s at that distance, and it was just a killing floor.
Man, it was such a good fight. I think we could have won the field with the rupture gang.
Good fight. Thank you to the Pizza and Renegades Council fleets for getting in there, and making a fight happen.
Edit: was corrected that renegades was not a third fleet, but it was a 2v1. Thanks
