North War from Iron pilots perspective.
There's alot of speculation/confusion about what happened and what didn't happen. This is what happened to one Iron pilot.
Here are some picture that I took while flying with my brethren in Branch.
I was there for around 2 weeks and had a blast in Z-495 and QCWA.Warp Drive Active
- First night out, it was battleship pos bashing. Had around 250 in gang. Hostile presence was felt but not justified by there turnout. 7 POS died that night.POS Shoot's Back
- Still the first night only 20 min later, the pos almost killed me twice, my mega was lucky :) props to insurg pos gunner's.
After many a night's watching fights from gate's to hold them in position. TRI and Insurg brought there cap ship's to the front line. During this time they had a jump bridge in 2-K495. They knew that we held BKG (Cyno-Jammed), we knew they held 2-K495 Cyno-Jammed)
During the gate camp we get a few scout's (nano rapier, vaga, and a raven
). We heard of Capital activity threw the Intel lines and were preparing for battle.
FC calls out "YARRRR?!?!?!!"
......"Jump!" into Z-K495 system, we go with battleship's and Hic's. With inbound gate clear and all hostiles at there pos (p10 m7) if I recall correctly. 30 seconds pass, without a sound on Teamspeak. We sit decloaked in a hostile system wondering if some ****** yelled jump. Out of no where. "Agmar Tackled" (NYX Gallente Mothership) warp to (blank) at (0km) We had around 90-110 in gang mostly Battleship's eager to pew pew with Mother on there mind.
There was around 170 in local at that time, hostiles were assorted support some Battleship's. Agmar was tackled but the fight was not won, most dps was on battleships that were trying to mobilize against us.
Clearly Agmar was bait, we didn't want to show weak against a cyno'ed system. So we pressed on and fought the cap blob. Dps not enough to kill him, must of had another MS or 5 Spydertanking him. When all dps was put on him that's when they fun started. LAG!!!! Boom local spike 50+ JB must have ran outta lo there was so many.
Capital's, Battleship's came chewing threw lo. (it's not like gates you jump you come in uncloaked so we took advantage of that).
During this time I was in a Lil Ares locking down primaries just flying as fast as I could
and looting of course
At the end of the fight Agmar's tank was to much (Down to 20% armor)as we did try but could not take the overflow of people using the jump bridge to get to the fight.
We go for the last stand away from the pos in Z-K495
We had about 70 BS + support on (BKG) gate everyone was ordered to get back to BKG to reform.
Me and my Intercepter had other plan's, there was a hostile stealth bomber on the gate, i saw Kill points... "POINT" i said, then Poof he's dead. 5 seconds later . . . . . I have a close encounter of the "Tri" kind. Capital blob warped to the gate, and man were the smart bombs a flowing. As i was trying desperately to spam "JUMP" to get the hell out i start to take damage. I punch the mwd as a thorax try's to snipe me
"I run outta cap" lag willingly I get way outta range and warp away with 1% armor.Spoke To Soon
Thorax fail, ha ha.
"Ares vs Aeon vs Capacitor" Log's
Log's of who hit me what what for. Cap running dry.[:Lil:]
I end up warping to a planet and Mwd'n forever to destination unknown while I sit and try to see what the hostile Cap fleet is a brewing.Tri Insurg Cap Fleet
We had about 5 players still stuck in system local was going up.Toss'd a scan and this is what i saw.
This only reflects one fleet battle that happend during North War,
I'll write A QCWA Next
