I have it on good authority from a reliable source within BRUCE that they were labouring under the misconception that MC didn't have a Titan anymore.

I think any speculation on that subject can be safely closed at this point in time.

Respect to MC for fielding such a monstrous ship. We were hoping to see its like in Syndicate and you have not disappointed. For those detractors on this thread that suggest there was no skill involved in the deployment of this vessel ... have you looked at the skill training costs/time involved, not to mention the logistics necessary to build such a vessel ? I think I detect the odour of grapes of the sour variety.

Props to BRUCE also for getting stuck in, as I hoped they would do. I'm sure that they will be bouncing back from a loss of this magnitude more quickly than I might hope.

The unveiling record is still 216, better luck next time Very Happy


how many were gewns?

not smack just wondering.

It was a mixed Goonswarm and TCF gatecamp, I think TCF got the worst of it but Lotka Volterra's killboard no longer exists to check.



There's at least one video about it around by LV.

Update - It seems that Corbec nailed 72 BS (destroyed) in the initial detonation.

Four MC killed in the blast.

142 mails 138 'real' kills.

I was not present during the Op and logged into TS after hearing the general "SHUT UP" after the warpout order and the DD detonation, but I'm fairly certain the unveiling was kept under the hats of the higher-ups and Corbec himself until the last moment.

Although I got a sneak peak of the sucker during a capital move, so that was kind of cool. Very Happy

Awesome. I couldn't think of anything nicer to look at than a huge list of ships destroyed with a single click, but now I can - a huge list of BRUCE ships destroyed by a single click Cool

Congrats MC, hope this one lasts a while longer and.. uhm.. can I touch it ? Very Happy

Other thread got locked...

I'm sure BRUCE will be happy to confirm that they had two fleets - one in PC9 and another in JH-. Combined there were nearly 340 enemies. We jumped Corbec into the enemy fleet in PC9 as they came in to clear the gate for the arrival of the second fleet.

I do not have exact numbers but here is what I do know - the fleet we killed in PC9 lost 72 battleships to the DD. The fleet in JH- decided not to come in and turned around. Our support chased after them and scored several more kills but did not catch the main force. Scouts said there were 'at least sixty more BS in the second fleet'. I just wanna be clear - according to the OP, jumping a Titan into 300+ potential hostiles with over a hundred BS and twice that in support is 'easy'? Hell, lag alone almost made us pull the plug but we held our breath did it anyway.

Now people can knock BRUCE all they want, but they managed to put together over 300 people last night, over a third of them in battleships to shut us down. Call it a blob or whatever; I call it determination and trying to make a point. We just had a surprise they weren't expecting last night, which is the entire point of warfare. Had they chosen to, they could have pushed the issue with their second fleet but by then we had jumped a sizable capital force into PC9 and for all BRUCE knew there was a second or third titan on standby as well. All things considered, they made a choice and called it a night.

again, MC throwing numbers around. 300 enemy gang?

Seriously... you guys would be scared to jump into 80 RA or AAA with your titan. Shows something doesn't it. ciao Wink

This thread should've been named: "The not-so-poor man's Titan"

Just my two cents.

Oh, and BRUCE blob tactics = epic backfire

Actually, we can now reveal that this was a carefully thought out plan between MC, IAC, RA and AAA to fake the loss of our Ragnarok class titan, in order to bait a sizable BRUCE fleet. As a matter of fact, Thulsa Doom was standing by as a backup DD.

In a more serious note, can I get a show of hand of people who believed that MC weren't going to get a new titan eventually? Anyone? Hands? :)

You are joking right? You do remember that R-A- and meatshield had forces of almost 500 and Mc and BoB went ahead with the assault in fat anyway yeah?
