The answer is roughly 20 (1 Bc, 3x Cruiser, 1x Curse, 10 assorted t2 frigates/destroyers and other assorted small ships), for tonight we found ourselves a CORE gatecamp in the CZDJ-1. Off the top of my mind a Chimera, Curse, Armageddon, Drake, Caracal, Blackbird, Hurricane and Thorax.

The Armageddon and carrier where running smartbombs but it was decided to go in and try and kill as much as we can. The gate fired at about 00:50 and our forces left the system around 02:30.

I took roughly one and a half hour to kill the carrier, Dakaris Zulu, the pilot did not log off nor self destruct. Respect for that, on behalf of the entire gang.

During this time CORE forced showed willing to sacrifice ship after ship after ship trying to save the carrier. Unfortunately it did not work and eventually the carrier tank started breaking, however, so did ammo supplies. Desperately looking though the wrecks, sharing ammo with gang mates we tried to hold the carrier in position until backup arrived. Eventually several MC pilots arrived and the last bits of carrier armor and structure where decimated.

AWESOMEST op ever. We’ll be back CORE.

Estimated Kills:
19 Capsules
9 Cruisers
7 Battleships
4 t2 Frigates
3 Frigates
3 Battle cruisers
1 Carrier

Estimated Losses:
1 Cruiser
1 Frigate
3 Interceptors

This mayhem was brought to you by the combined forces of AXE, Aftermath, Corelum, MC and Xelas.

Actual Ships Destroyed -

22 Pods -
9 Cruisers -
8 Battleships -
8 Frigs / Cepters -
4 BattleCruisers -
1 Chimera

This was all done with 1 Harbringer, 1 Blackbird, 1 Curse (arrived 1hr into battle), and 15 to 18 cepters / af's.

Great respect to all the Core, 1.5hrs shooting a carrier, warping out, killing anything that warped in to save it was a blast and we will be back.

Best fight of my eve career so far Very Happy

Kudos to the pilots who came to the carrier's aid, especially rockerguy and Spice Weasel who lost 4 thoraxes, vexor, caracal, geddon, dominix, vengence and 2 pods between them. Thats dedication.

Great Fight CORE. Props for coming back over and over again. I really hope no one forgot to update their clones. The fight was completely smack free. A real class act by Core.


For once, I was so glad I was using lasers and didn't have to go check wrecks for ammo.
Fast frigate gangs ftw!

I just want to thank all members of - Aftermath / Xelas / Coreli / Axe / Fatal for all the great participation this weekend and for joining my gangs knowing how long / suicidal they can be. Great job all involved.

Freelancer you guys setup some nasty gate camps keep it up.

D2 you guys have some great fleets, cant wait to get into a few more fights with you all fleet style.

Core you guys fight for each other no matter the outcome, and that is great teamwork.

Horde, you guys just agrivate me, but think we each had some nice kills this weekend.

All the poor nuetrals that get ganked on the way, sorry Evil or Very Mad

Well by the sounds of it you could have gotten 1 load of laundry washed and dried while shooting the carrier. Twisted Evil

Props to the carrier pilot for sticking in there and not loggin.

Grats on a trully great fight guys, only heard you were comming up the pipe about 6 jumps away hence the lack of a bubble getting there, we knew we were outnumbered and not sure if outgunned so we went with what we had.

this is the sort of thing that makes eve great though, screw the carebear balls, getting in the only half decent ship in system and staring down the barrel of a swarm of intys that your drones have almost no hope of killing is the way to go, have had a ton of fun fighting these guys lately and i hope it continues lots, all hard ass and good natured fights, felt i was getting pecked to death LaughingLaughing

that maulus and curse really kicked my ass tbh, couldnt target sod all after they came at me ShockedShocked

grats again and hope we see y'all again (make it earlier though, i had to be in work at 5am, got no sleep ConfusedConfused)

3we? You mean where you warp to your POS everytime more than 5 people get near it?

Or you talking about where Fatal destroyed a 30 man bs / bc fleet or yours today?

Normally I refuse to get into flame wars but think this one deserves it

First of all, much respect to Dakaris Zulu for staying in to the end, not even logging to try and save his pod. Also much respect to the other guys for repeatedly coming to his aide even after the Carrier went down, that kind of dedication to your corp/alliance mates is cool.

One correction to be made tho. Substitute three interdictors for three of the ceptors. Best op I've ever been on and props to all of the people in our gang for sticking it out and managing to to make it out with most of our ships intact. Very Happy

Sounds like an awesome fight, I'm supremely jealous!

What I'd like to know is a summary of tactics used by both sides. I'm curious that the carrier was able to kill so few of the other pilots, even though I'm guessing it was using smartbombs and fighters?
