Black Legion are a bunch of……


I am now back in beloved 6NJ.  So happy now that the deployment is over (It wasn’t the greatest of successes for us).  Fountain is, to us, a loss. The big fight was last night and it looks like the war is done. CFC take fountain and TEST go away.

That being said, a fight between multiple alliances and one alliance who had random help was never really going to be anything but a win for CFC anyway.

You have to give TEST credit for putting up a pretty epic struggle. And we got some pretty good fights. I hope they regroup and come back stronger than ever: New Eden always  needs some diversity

Now that’s over and Black Legion have reset us (Ref: http://themittani.com/news/black-legion-resets-retirement-club). Black Legion, as you recall, were the ones “Paid off” by the CFC to let their capitals go after some brilliant maneuvers. This of course means they are the great Satan and must be destroyed. In reality it means they are just guys who like fighting and want a fight that isn’t blue balls ahoy.  And we are gonna give them what they want. And what we want, of course. Reinforcing our moons is  a good way to initiate, and i think we will be glad to oblige. And it provides a tactical backdrop.

I get the whole “Person X is evil and must be destroyed” style of play. I just don’t really subscribe to it myself. People want to have fun and blow ships up. People want to have fun and mine, or do incursions, or mission. More power to them. If they are having fun, then so what? Where’s the beef? And a PvP alliance will have no fun if there isn’t anyone to shoot at.

There are some groups who practice the tactical blue ball in the hopes it will bore the other side out. I guess that’s all good and tactical and stuff. Just seems super boring.

I prefer to log in and kill ships.

BL, I’m told, really likes killing ships.

Hence this will be fun, and I think a bit of respect for the them is on order.

I’ll still be blowing you guys up.

Peace Out

Structure shoots are boring. Wait…why am i having fun?


Fleet broadcast went up and I joined. We were requested to bring Rokh and Scimitars. I eschewed my usual Logistics and instead wanted to shoot things. So out comes the Rokh.

The request was for Blaster Rokh’s. So fitting ahoy. I used my Railgun fit as a base and added blasters. And a little bit of extra tracking.

Yeah, with this fit you can spring some serious damage. It isnt designed for manouverability. Its designed to land at zero and wreck face. With a good tank and serious DPS.

However, the fleet battle was not to be, as we were killing moon towers.

And this comes down to the whole “Why we fight”.

The FC was clear in letting us know we were there to support our Dreads who were knocking down some towers. We were there to provide cover, prevent tackle, and keep the op safe. In addition the FC let us all know the reason for knocking out the Towers. Doing this removes a strong income stream, and we can take over the moons for ourselves.

So we knew why we were there.

Sure, no fleet battle occurred, but we popped three towers, all done very quickly (one seige cycle). The FC made sure everyone got a chance to hit the towers to get on the KM, and got us home quick. We do love being on KM’s.

I know that tower and sov and structure shoots can be boring as all hell. But if you tell your pilots the stakes, and get them to buy into the reason for doing them, then even the boring POS turkey shoot can be an enjoyable experience.
