My dear Hardin
I must say, life without you in the CVA would be rahter boring old chap I do enjoy your propoganda.
Obviously the only reason you were victorious last night was due to the lack of my Rifter, which i assure you, would have beaten back the CVA fleet singlehandedly.
Anyway, good show. Heres to more fights in the future hopefully, the ole PvP is getting somewhat stale as of late. Salutes to our lads for fighting outnumbered.
My rifter hasnt fired a shot for ages
Thanks - I think
As for fighting outnumbered I am afraid I wasn't there (just listening on Ventrilo) so cannot be 100% sure on fleet numbers.
People told me afterwards that it was an even fight 15 vs 15 at the start... though I will not say this is so as did not see it with my own eyes.
I do believe we had a BS advantage which somewhat countered the Minmatar defensive advantage...
Or as your battleships are becoming increasingly known as.
The big shiny gold flying dildo's
which as you can imagine, can turn to some nasty converastions
Yeah, i wasnt their either so cant really comment apart on from what I heard. But those shiny dildo's are hard nuts to crack
Our rusty buckets will however, certainly prevail in the end i hope, if we didnt have EW i reckon we'd need like 3 to 1 odds to win.
Hopefully they wont increase the HP like they said, otherwise those big shiny gold things will be even harder to crack.. why oh why cant they decide what to do with minnie ships.. all khal wants is lots of speed and the ability to actually hit at speed tahts all i ask. Im not a greedy man
But we'll always be hear, even if we are all in reapers, we will never surrender!
Oh and im not insuating the only reason you win is just cos you have shiny things lads, just read it and may have given that impression.
Hey I was there for a grand total of 5 minutes, and I managed to loose my Crusader
heh that was a fun fight.
Id say total numbers were roughly even... but we were BS heavy. We had at least 5 geddons and 4 Apocs in a fleet of around 15 ships. And well we all know how nasty those things are. :twisted:
Good luck getting the devs to change your ships a bit... right now battles like that are too one sided. I like winning as much as anyone else... but its a better victory when I know that it could have gone the other way.
Gaven - it has gone the other way recently - I guess you werent around for those ones...

lucky for you TomB Im sure is CVA. Im getting rather sick of seeing fleets composed of either apocs, ravens, scorps or armas.
aas for your numbers Gavin, our scrennies show 10 cva battleships in a 23 man gang against our 7 bs and 17 man gang, All what I have seen from the screenies though. Im writying this after getting extremely hammered having finished my exams.
I remember when amarr ships where gimped and minnie ships had the advantage..but times change
Hakera - as I said when I posted those screenshot - a lot of the gang were not actually with the fleet... and at least a couple got bumped from gate in Yulai when order was give to jump in and engage...
Numbers were even according to all reports warping in. We got the drop on u guys with a covert ops so knew where you were and what you had and in pure number terms it was even -
However we DID have a BS number advantage (although you had defensive position with drones deployed)

Aye, but we had major bumpage, so about 2-3 pilots where non-combat
that and we had at least two scouting rather than fighting.
Though as at least one of those scouts nullified your advantage as the defender by feeding us targets... :twisted:
well, I wasnt there - I would have seen your fleet waiting to jump in and told them that an ambush at a planet you 'accidently' let everyone know your at in local would be a bad idea given the size of your fleet and average DoT.
nice to see your finally catching up with covert ops now
We've been using them for a long time now, we just didn't advertise it
Don't worry, Minnies. When CCP gets off their bum and gets consentual warfare up and running, AmAx will be back in the fight with our beatable numbers and stubborn insistence on engaging stupid odds. Then you can have a bit more fun, a lot less lag, and stack up some victories!
