Quick update. We have sold and moved out of our C2 wormhole and will be hopefully merging with Explorer Corps in their C5 sometime this week or weekend. The C2 was nice, laid back and profitable but I am starting to miss “big PVP.”
So what are you all planning on doing with your Gnosis? I have my scout / indy alt training up for warfare links so will probably use it as a booster while I solo C2 sites.
So what’s your plan?
We decided to return to the Kingdom of Heaven C3 last weekend and were pleasantly surprised when they came out of their shells and showed up to fight. Here is a mixed battle report over the course of about an hour where I ganked a hauler then lost my Proteus by straying too far off of hisec and got jumped. I made sure to take Sirius2u down with me though.
We had planned on staying the whole weekend but for some reason we could never get coordinated and ended up leaving after a C6 punched through the system on Saturday.
All and all it was fun and good fights and I am glad KoH came out to play!
I don’t think the word coward means what some people think it means. For instance, if you stop flying with an old corp mate, maybe because of his domineering, controlling personality, it doesn’t make you a coward for dropping all communications and just washing your hands of the relationship. Sometimes further communication just feeds that personality and brings more drama and pain.
Sometimes people change, and there is no longer any reason to fly together. The good times remain in memory, but for the most part, the dysfunctional, codependent relationship needs to just come to an end, cold turkey. It’s not cowardice man, it’s just people moving on from a place they would rather not be.
The system is home to 11 or 12 towers manned by various corps in the alliance. The towers are active in nearly every time zone. My first night in I nabbed a Badger, an Imicus and the pod. I knew then and there it was time to set up shop or perhaps ask for a ransom, so I did both.
I e-mailed alliance diplo sirius2U Equilibrium and demanded 100 million to pack up and leave his system which I called a “target rich environment.” His response was to basically call me a nobody. Perhaps finding my killboards and looking through my corp history would have been the wiser move.
Over the next several days I continued to hunt them, first in a Nemsis and later a Proteus. I brought in a bunch of friends from different time zones to help cover every tower and customs office in the system. Here is the damage from just DPLAN connected kills. For future readers that last link is for all of April 2013, so some kills may be unrelated, just look at the WH they are in. Here are KoH’s April losses (OMG!!!)
To make a long story short. We did over 1.5 billion in ship kills to the alliance with zero losses to our pilots. We also stopped most, but not all of their PI and mining during the time were were in. With >10 towers to fuel, that’s gotta hurt. The best part though? In the seven days since we started our operation, the alliance has lost a whopping 21 members! Dannng man, should have just paid up.
And sirius my brother, this isn’t over… The price for us to leave you alone is climbing at the same rate I mentioned in my first e-mail every day. Rest assured we will be back, and we will get our money, or we will get your alliance mates.
We have moved into a C2 Static C3 / Hisec after a few weeks of hisec diving and ganking. Look, I hate to beg but, I need some corpies! If you are interested in flying around in wormholes, contact illy velo in game!
One of our last battles as Timberwolves / Splinter Cell back in our C5. This is from the Kill it With Fire side of the fight. Props to them for not cutting off the video after they killed most of our fleet. They take it all the way to the end where we make our valiant comeback. In spite of the chatter on comms, “goodbye illy” never happened. I got out of web range and warped off when it was clear that what we had left on the field was just going to die. Also, I got the super long range point on the cameraman / guardian pilot at the end.
