THIS POST IS FOR INFORMING THE COMMUNITY ONLY AND DOES NOT REFLECT THE OPINIONS OF EXM OR MY CORP.

19.04 eve time:

after receiving intel from several Bruce members (by way of threats) we established that they were coming to take a POS in mhc from us and started contructiing defenses. A small bruce gang of 40 or so BS attacked a pos in construction but were returned to PC9 fairly quickly
http://www.eve-exm.com/kb/?a=kill_related&kll_id=10962

23.20 - 23.40 :

The bruce main force enters mhc via the 2x gate using capital ships. They proceed to destroy the large bubbles so the support can enter safely. We bring snipers to the gate and try to take out some caps stuck in the bubble regretfully we only manage to get a naglfar to hull before the swarm jumps in to save him. POS regroup ordered.

Stage2

After re-grouping at our combat base, scouts reported a neutral POS under attack by a mix of capitals and support ships. We managed to get numerous scouts into position, and comitted to battle...
23:59 - 00:29 A kill-ratio of 3-to-1 with more than 70 hostile ships lost during the 30 minute engagement :

battle ensues

We then battled non stop with bruce for over 4 hours :

chunk 1

chunk 2

chunk 3

chunk 4

A mix of tactics were employed, and a hard-fought battle left hundreds of wrecks on the field. (this did not help when loading the grid).

At this point, timezones started to hurt us, and we were not able to effectively hit them.

so we sniped their support fleet, yet again...
last battle

Good fights to all involved, well done to bruce for finaly leaving pc9 and for never giving up (it should be noted that many bruce pilots returned to the meat grinder 4-5 times)

Big thanks to FIREMANDRIL and HUZZAH FED who gave us extra numbers

o/ Hey Saltire.

I think you'll find the fight is already being discussed by way of a "Whoa, major red blob" introduction over yonder in the General forum:

Link to general forum discussion

No problem talking about it in two places, but I'd just paste/repeat what I said there. Great fight once again, and we learned quite a bit from it. Look forward to putting those lessons into practice again soon. Smile


Edit: Although it may not matter, I have no problem with Saltire having those links there, speaking as the OpSec FC. It agrees nicely with what we showed - more losses early, improving dramatically towards the end of the fight as we began putting what we'd learned into practice. We threw away sub-BS ships (particularly sub-BC ships) like candy, but eh, that's what they're for. Very Happy

(Though props to the BRUCE pilots who stepped up and swung in a fragile ship, knowing they'd pop but coming to deal what damage they could anyhow. Our scrappy new alliance is very proud - and very tired, heh - this morning.)

Having lost 3 ships in the battle and only firing off a dozen or so missiles, I can attest to the horrible lag. Hats off to EM for their ability to keep returning and going thru the grid loading process.

They are similar to a nest of angry bees. Kill one and another 5 or so show up.

Wow HUGE thing, guys :)

Congratulations for the awesome fight you had!

Reminds me of past times when OSS was red to BRUCE and particularly engagements in PC9 and of course that epic Large BRUCE POS take-down in M2-/JH-. Back then, BRUCE behaved the same way - they just kept on coming and coming!!!

I have nothing but respect for their determination!

Everybruce: G'day!

Michael: Hello.

Fourth Bruce: Michael Baldwin, Bruce. Michael Baldwin, Bruce. Michael Baldwin, Bruce.

First Bruce: Is your name not Bruce?

Michael: No, it's Michael.

Second Bruce: That's going to cause a little confusion.

Third Bruce: Mind if we call you "Bruce" to keep it clear?

Sounds like a fun evening. I was wondering why 2x all of a sudden went for 2 to over 140.

nice fight we got intel for the exm firem gang moving the pipe arround 40 people we taught they come for us and formed a defence but it seems they got different destination bad for bruce they do not call for help it would have been so much fun.
excelent fight either way but i do not think the kills shows the winners bruce loses are mostly t1 cruizers not a big deal at all. but credit for them going out with everything they have. and for exm fighting back.

Got a few personal friends in BRUCE. Was all they could talk about. Sounds like yall had a great fight out there!

Nothing like a fair fight to get the blood pumping. No matter how much better the numbers look for 200v20 fight, One thats tough won like that is always a "better" and more fun fight in my opinion.

I would just like to say - great fight on both sides.

Shame it was laggy, but it was great fun none the less.

Just to add an ENH gang jumped into system during the day and proceeded to blow up about a half a dozen sniper fit bs belonging to both EM and Bruce.

Thanks for the free kills Laughing

Oh, no question BRUCE came out behind on the kills/deaths. The 60,000m3 of loot we've hauled in wasn't too bad a consolation, though, and anyone who's faced BRUCE knows that we are big on improving after new experiences. BRUCE considers it a win - and would understand if ExM did the same, and agree with them, too - and we look forward to implementing all we've learned.

Excellently fought by EXM. Bruce's victory was of the Pyhrric type.. sort of like the Persians at Thermopylae except if the Spartans dropped Phat Lutz. Bravely fought on both sides.

As is often the case, the definition of a "win" will no doubt vary a lot depending on which side of the fence you're on. In the end, it seems all had good fun despite the lag, and it was indeed an epic fight :)
