Ooooh Cyno! Better warp to that....

.....huh Archon. Wait there is no POS! Oh shit the Archon just cloaked. Quick, quick go for a decloak!

I sucessfully decloak the Archon \o/

We get point and start screaming for help on comms and in the intel channels and get one response. Shit, log in all the alts!

Backup points are established and me and LR swap out for battleships. It's fighters are popped in short order. Heavy Energy Neutralisers delicately caress the poor Archons capacitor as we start to chew through the armor.

Eventually the noble beast succumbs.

We link up the kill and start gloating on coms. Then someone comments "Hey the can is full of capital BPO's."

A brief mad scramble and the can is secured.


Split 4 ways that should be at least 5 bil each. Gotta actually haul this shit to market and to a proper appraisal of it's worth.

And people say you can't make any money off piracy :)

Oh, and Diz got home from work and logged in minutes after the Archon died.....heh.

[THC2] vs [TSO]

So we had a really busy weekend of fights. Here is one I actually remember to hit FRAPs for.

Our Omens + Exeq + BB vs a mixed shield Rupture, Thorax, BB, Scythe and fast tackle gang. Needless to say we kind of paniced when landed at 0KM on their gang with our kiting gang. But in the end our only losses were the Exequeror. 3D Horrorshow (Exequ pilot) did a fucking awesome job of keeping the fleet up until he got taken out.

Also had a decent fight vs Noir + ROFL. THC2 paper thin kiting Omens paired with 7-2 Guardians and AB HACs.

Amazingly we held up. 7-2 Guardian pilots were fucking amazing in this fight. Fleet managed to last long enough to scramble cynos to drop dreads on the tackled ROFL carriers. That moment as the dreads land...brought a tear to my eye.

Sugar Kyle also did a write up.

Fun fights all round.

And Razor did not die O.o

Huh, is that a freighter?

So it was a quiet night and I just finished a shitty Angel Plex escalation (only crap dropped). Time to head back to Bosena, log and get some sleep.
Jumping my Cruise Phoon from Illamur into Atlar I sleepily notice a few drones, a pod and an Obelisk on gate.


Shit, shit, shit, shit, shit, shit, 84KM away! I swiftly lockup the hapless freighter, spool up the MJD, bounce and land 18KM away. Point and web apply the deeps! My cruise missiles start punching into the freighter as the sentry guns open up on my poor Phoon. Overheat that LAAR and start screaming for help in intel channels.
Wait! I have Rusu sitting in Bosena, I put her in a Domi and start making best speed. Cesto, from 7-2, responds and starts heading over.

The freighter pilot opens a convo:

[ 2013.08.16 13:36:50 ] MJ Stakus > hi
[ 2013.08.16 13:37:02 ] MJ Stakus > i give you 40kk and u let me go pls
[ 2013.08.16 13:37:21 ] Naoru Kozan > 40KK?
[ 2013.08.16 13:37:26 ] MJ Stakus > yes
[ 2013.08.16 13:37:30 ] MJ Stakus > 40 mil
[ 2013.08.16 13:37:45 ] MJ Stakus > can u stop firing?
[ 2013.08.16 13:39:04 ] MJ Stakus > what do you want?
[ 2013.08.16 13:40:02 ] MJ Stakus > is it personal? u want to kill me?

My LAAR runs out of nanite paste and I start to dip into low armor. The Obelisks armor evaporates...then damage slows to a crawl. Fracking Gallente structure! Rusu, hits the Oddelulf gate and jumps. 50 AU warp. My Phoon starts to dip into structure as the heated empty LAAR fails to keep up with the sentry gun dps.
Half structure, align for the sun.
Rusu lands and grabs secondary point as my Phoon warps out in 28% structure. Cesto lands moments later and grabs a second point and whores the final blow lol.

Obelisk killmail.

The freighter pilot convoes Rusu:

[ 2013.08.16 13:42:25 ] MJ Stakus > well im dead, but let me ask you
[ 2013.08.16 13:42:41 ] MJ Stakus > is it not better to get payed then get only kill?
[ 2013.08.16 13:43:06 ] MJ Stakus > no english?
[ 2013.08.16 13:46:10 ] Rusu'kara Kenban > no habla
[ 2013.08.16 14:00:44 ] Rusu'kara Kenban > o/

More backup arrives then we start scrambling to move industrials in to secure the loot. Quickly the wreck is strippled clean without incident despite the randoms floating around system.

We left an Itty V and about 250 shuttles in the wreck for passerbys to help themselves too.

I manage to pull about 300 mil of loot from the charred freighter hulk (also managed to loot a hulk ^^).

Very good way to end the night.
