We had a sizable Blue fleet with Xexiom's Harbinger leading the charge.  The Reds were out as well, with less numbers, but two Cyclones.  (/me looks down, embarrassed... and we both had a Drake.)

 

I decided not to primary the Cyclones as I thought they'd take too long to kill and we went to town on their Cruisers while they primaried our Harbinger.  Xexiom went down in his Harby,

and we took many of their cruisers out, including a Maller, Maller, Vexor, Thorax, Caracal, and we got the Drake too.  There were also a lot of frigs on field tackling and blasting away.

 

Charlie Berry spoke up mid fight for a second when my brain started to lock up and got us back on track. :)  Thanks!

 

Some of our kills.  

Mallers

Drake

Caracal

Quentin Sarn in his Cyclone escaped, but he stayed out in his ship in Liekuri and we chased him down.  He was a good sport for not docking up!

Vexor-https://zkillboard.com/kill/39268175/

Slasher-https://zkillboard.com/kill/39267953/

 

I'm sure I missed some things, probably a lot of things, but you guys get the idea.  Lots of explosions.  It was a great fight.  Thanks to all the BC pilots that put their ships on the line and made the fight extra special.  :)

I agree, Blues were great sports. We didn't have quite as many numbers, and we didn't reship at all (or if we did, it was incredibly slowly) but we had quite a bit of fun. 

 

You didn't even know I was the FC, yet you waited to kill me until almost last. Props for being a telepath! Very honorable of you indeed heh.

 

In a last ditch effort, with 6 ships still on field, we went for your final Drake. Nothing else was quite in range (except a maller, in retrospect we may have gotten a kill off him) so we went for the drake. By the time his shields were low, we had lost our final cruiser.

 

Very fun, thanks for warping around and being good sports. We had lower numbers, so we initially warped into you and then jumped through the gate instead of agressing at 30km range. Given our numbers I wanted to have you jump into us, so we could be in position.

 

Huzzah for a non-organized large fight happening organically. I haven't seen that happen in the last few weeks I've been on. Very fun.

I spend the week whining about no BC-and-below sized fleet fights, and then miss out on one that actually happens. Yeaw.

Yeah I hear you on that. I'm more of a BC/Cruiser guy, not much into Frigate meta. So if you see me on, hang around or hang out with Master Broski. He loves BC's too. 

 

I'm always looking for an excuse to make a fight BC-down hah.

Frigs are fine and fun (I love my ceptor), it's just that BC-and-below fleets have more tactical elements than cruiser-and-below ones. And BCs are cheap enough to field, at least every now and then.

 

P.S. I have got two RL mates in RvB who are also into the BC-and-below stuff, so I guess the five of us could do some occasional 0.0 roaming.
