Apparently we ran out of Eagles. Or that was the phrase by the point I used to be in a position to get logged in and be part of one of many reinforcement fleets. I had an Eagle. It was the ship I introduced out on the primary transfer op.
But it surely was too late by then. By the point I used to be in a fleet and up on voice coms we have been being advised to face down, that we had been thwarted in our first main battle of the brewing struggle.
All of this was across the ihub within the system UALX-3… one other system with some historical past, the place one other large combat befell… positioned in Tenerifis, the place we have been just some weeks again. The Imperium had strengthened the ihub and the timer got here out yesterday afternoon my time. PAPI determined to contest this and a tug of struggle over management of the system broke out, working for a number of hours. The thrill of Fozzie Sov.
The system isn’t too far in from Catch, the place we’re staged at the moment, and would make a superb ahead base if we might seize it and maintain it. Nevertheless, we failed to do this. The battle report, which covers all the programs within the constellation, as a result of that’s how the sovereignty contest system works, with nodes showing constellation extensive to combat over, confirmed very even numbers
Anyway, the header from the battle report:
1,400 pilots counted within the tally, divided between the 2 sides, although those that don’t get on a kill mail someway, which regularly means logi, don’t find yourself on the principle report. Nonetheless, a big variety of ships on the sector, with 1,604 ships destroyed, which suggests there was vital numbers re-shipping and returning to the combat after they have been blown up.
All advised, simply shy of 209 billion ISK was destroyed within the combat. We’re not into World Conflict Bee high ten battles territory but… not even shut… however for the opening of a battle it isn’t insignificant.
The Imperium misplaced each the target and the ISK was and needed to pull its forces again to its staging system to regroup. This failure means a reassessment of the plan of assault little doubt, together with a name for extra provides and extra pilots to maneuver to the staging Keepstar in Catch. Transfer ops are carrying on and contracts are going up available on the market to provide the struggle effort.
We are going to see how the following strike fares.
