Carrier engagement!

For those not living is Esoteria or Stain region or Paragon Soul and various system there, C0ven and Stain Empire have decided rather than fighting IT ( which was always a losing proposition) that they would fight us. Bad move indeed.

Last night we engaged them in the system of HHQ-M1

The fight was recorded the fight but I have not yet found it

Battle stats are still not in yet but for the first tim ever I was able to bring my Carrier into the fray and try my best to engage the enemy.

Our fleet:

  • 2 Super Capitalss
  • 35 Capitals (Carriers and Dreads)
  • 130 Battleships
  • 50 Support ships

We engaged C0ven fleet and killed 77 of them from 23:39 to 24:39.

Engaging in my carrier was an exercise in mild frustration. I kept launching fighters at targets but they would fire one volley and then go back to idle.  Never having used fighters in capital ship combat I confess to being somewhat unusually confused as to why they would not engage repeatedly.  I kept hammering away and did bag one Apocalypse Battleship.

I was able to rep some people so I think I helped a bit in that regard.

I think I need to move with the pack of Carriers next time as some of the others pilots did grab more kills than I but I was exhilarated at actually being able to deploy the carrier in combat.

Things to note for next time:

  1. Stay closer to the group
  2. Put a Scan res and a targeting script in the cargo
  3. Practice practice practice

I wrote a bit about C0ven and SE but frankly it is not worth the time. They are red and deserve destruction.

  1. Here's to hoping IT and the SC keep out and let you guys have some fun. Should be an interesting match, Sys-k vs SE/Coven.

  2. Woot for more target practice in Eso! It was getting boring down here. =)
