Rewatching that battle it strikes me even more how brilliant it was. And great video too, naPasik! Music was just right. Glad to see I wasn't the only one to run out of cap boosters...

I ran out as well but had my bowhead nearby with spares, just couldn't manage to micromanage warping there to get them whilst logging with jag. Should have had alt warp in with them instead.

Their report seems fair and accurate. I didn't count battleships but it didn't seem to me that we had that many more than they did. One of the comments was "RvB has three times as many members as we (E-Uni) do." If they only knew! (If any E-Uni read this, our membership numbers include literally thousands of players that no longer play the game, we don't purge inactives).

What that report doesn't mention is the effort made to get our tem on grid (from a more limited pool of players in truth)

 

We had our team warmed up with nightly free FFA's.

 

We offered free logistics to the AoE in freighters and Bowheads.

 

We decamped en toto to the AoE.

 

We had cruiser logi, ECM cruisers, tackle cruisers and battleships on contract at the  staging station. 

 

We had plentiful reships available in the Bowheads (though we didn't need em really) - E-Uni were reshipping a few people from a station.

 

 

...........

 

Interestingly we sorted out the fleet mostly on the way to the gate.

 

This is classic RvB and seemed to work well.

 

Doctrines can be devastating if all goes well - but tactically, they also limit options, increase risk and often force pilots into ships they are not used to flying.

 

...........

 

Also E-Uni bailed quickly.

 

This is part of their mentality - but not part of ours to the same extent.

 

RvB types prefer to reship HARD and try to win fights from seemingly hopeless positions - they had enough people to win that fight comfortably but their tendency towards avoiding risk is a weakness.

Confirming RvB reshipping is almost a fetish.

Hi RvB o/

 

It was a great fight.

 

Also E-Uni bailed quickly.

We left the field after we lost most of our Logi (including all Guardians).

 

I also have this battlereport http://evf-eve.com/s...323660&e=30&t=u

Should it load you can see the numbers better.

You had more BS but we had more support so I think it wasn't too unbalanced, even if we lost way more ISK.

 

o/

Cat

 

EDIT:

Just after I wrote this I hear myself getting called primary in your video  :P

You could have broken more ships before turning to Logi if you would focus fire more. There was so much split damage that managing reppers over multiple targets was a nightmare.

But your EWAR was good. Your damps forced us very close early on (too close) and near the end your ECM started to become really stressfull.

Yeah we had some split DPS, it stressed me out a couple of times but hoped the added pressure on comms and targeting would help break things.

I was guilty of split damage from my abandon owing to the fact my main was in a guardian working his nuts off :)

Yeah, split dps happens, especially with shorter ranged ships. I had the Bhaalgorn locked the whole fight and someone was always shooting it, despite it not being the primary until the end. Probably disobedient drones. Anyway, thanks for the fight and we look forward to a rematch.

My other alt was in bowhead at a SS ready with reships- apologies if anyone tried to get a ship as it was locked down with a view to ejecting ships when required - some faction bs were inside for my own reships.
