BATTLE REPORT

(sorry for the bugged KB... Crying or Very sad)

http://redfed.eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=6980404

This shows the sheer numbers fielded at the weekend that you to can expect to see if you joined :)

But from what I understand, reds had a few wins, and then we took the fight to blue hq where they held the field due to their reshipping Rolling Eyes

Then we went for a little skirmish at middleground, blues brought a sniper fleet and we brought... Lots of cruisers?

Lool

Anyway The fight kind of failed and reds warped off, but we did manage to catch a few blues going back home, including this rather yummy kill :)

http://redfed.eve-kill.net/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=6980816

And guess who got the loot? ;)

So yeah, from being 5M in debt after two manticores being lost in as many hours...

I went to grabbing 30Ms worth loot from the blues and snatching a CN BCU and selling that on for a tidy sum!

And that my friends, is how fast paced this great little high sec war is :)

Bumpity bump bump bump.

Ok pretty decent night last night. Blue's were camping Reds undock when I got online so I joined fleet hopped out in my trusty Vexor rapidly turned into a pile of space junk managed to get one Myrm kill so a fair trade.

They come back a few minutes later with a BC BS gang so I take my shinny new mega out sadly the manage to deagress their BS's before we could pop them so my initial blooding of the Mega as limited to whoring onto a punisher kill.

Then blues had had enough and their fleet peters out. We spend an hour or so just spinning ships and talking crap then finally blues are ready to do a little fleet action 9 on 9 after we give them one of our pilots to even things up.

The first fight was pretty traditional us Reds in our usual supertanked Punisher/merlin fleet and Blues in a mixed hull fleet the fight ended what has become a fairly traditional fashion with Reds holding the field with 2 losses while decimating the blue fleet ;-)

The second fight was kind of interesting blues brought out a fleet of mostly Tristans we were in our traditional fleet of heavy tanked punishers and Merlins. It was an interesting tactic they were also using small RR drones.
Blue's faired much better in this fight taking out 4 of us to the 5 of theirs we killed Reds still held the field but it was a much closers fight.

The final fight I was involved in for the night we Red's decided to try something different.
Forgoing our normal heavy tanked punisher merlin force we instead all fitted identical Rifters (well all save one who just had to be an individual) we engaged and chaos ensued.
It was a blast very close contest resulting in my second ship loss for the night the fight ended up down to only 2 red pilots surviving once the blue menace had been vanquished.

This is what RVB is all about getting good fights where all the parties have fun win or lose. If you find that appealing come on down and join the fun.

Speaking as the pilot who was loaned to blue for a couple fights, I can say with confidence that both sides are great to fly with. For the second fight Skex described, I decided to hero for Blue and continued the fight against the last 3 punishers in my own punisher, was a great fight had by all (By the by, sorry I kited yer Kessie in my mwd Puni, Columbus Twisted Evil). All in all, a great set of fleets and some great fights.

I've been on a semi-break from EVE for about 6 months now, and recently started to play again.
After carebearing it up in Empire for a while, thickening up ye olde wallet, I started looking into some corps to give PVP a shot again.
I came across the RVB post and decided to join up to see if it was what people were claiming it to be.

After 3 days in the Red Federation, I joined a fleet of frigates provoking the Blue Republic into a fight, and they gave us one...
13 kills later I called it quits for the night, I had only been on for about 3 hours.
I'm gonna stick around for a bit! YARRRR!!

Bumptity bump bump bump

So I was home "sick" from work yesterday after spending the 1st half of the day in bed and a couple hours on various business I logged in to what was probably the biggest fleet I've seen in RVB yet. 31 pilots in a red cruiser/frig blob of doom. The FC advised new pilots to grab frigs and gather up.

Well I decided to do something different since he'd requested tackling frigates an this was a mixed hull fleet I pulled out this Tristan I'd been tweaking. I've generally had less than stellar luck with these things in the past but those were in frig brawls where you high dps low tank ships tend to be priority. In a larger fleet like this there should be plenty of more juicy targets than I for people to primary so I figured what the hell.

After some cat and mouse a fleet fight is arranged on the Merolles gate in Tourier.

We're set up on the Merolles side of the gate when the scouts report that the blue fleet on the other side of the gate the order is given to recall drones and converge on gate soon as the drones are all out of overview and back in peoples dronebays the order is given to jump and hold cloak.

A primary is called and the attack order given.

I'm not used to fighting with so many enemies on the field on the night shift 15 or so ships a side is a pretty heavy fleet so it takes me a minute to sort threw the wall of red to find the primary while searching I get tackle on the secondary then I finally manage to get the primary targeted and start getting into the groove.

It was a lot of fun flitting around in something that's a tad nimble. Would probably just use a rifter if I did it again since even with a MWD a plated trimarked tristan isn't the most fleet of foot ship in the universe. But it was a hell of a lot faster than the cruisers and Battlecruisers I was fighting.

It was a very intense fight I got aggro at one point and had to burn away from the action but was able to come back in a hurry. In the end I managed to aid in dispatching a Domi 2 Canes a harbinger a myrmadon a drake a stabber and a final warp in tackle on a snipe fit Rupture that didn't manage to evac from the field in time.

Very fun fight makes me jealous of the day guys who have a lot more numbers than the night crew atm.

At this point I had to log for a while to do family stuff as I understand it they got some more epic fights during my downtime.

Unfortunately things have slowed down on the late US TZ so I log into pretty much nothing going on. Del gets on about the same time but has to go manage his industrial empire for a bit. So I put up a fleet invite and start trying to scare something up.

After a little bit I've put together a small fleet and a blue FC has scared up 7 of his own. About the time I'm getting folks rallied Del comes back and takes over the fleet. I don't mind I prefer being lazy anyway ;-)

We move to Merolles and about the time we're ready to roll blue comes back that they have 8 now. Well the way things have been going we decide to spot them the extra guy (supposedly 3 of the 8 are newbs) rather than wait around for an 8th.

In we go we end up a good 30 klicks from each other with our sniper landing right on top of their fleet. Luckily he gets out and we start a short staring contest.

Finally a blue Merlin gets into range. Now normally we'd want something a little less tanked for primary but better a hard target than no target.

Quite the fun fight which ended with 3 reds dead to the 6 blue wrecks. I managed to execute one of my signature GTFO maneuvers at 18% structure. I don't mind losing ships but it's always satisfying to deny the blues a juicy killmail :)

After that fight all the blue FC's draw GF/wife aggro and have to log. This spells the end pretty much to operations at this point other than a short roam over to Blue HQ only to find that they have no one to organize their fight.

damn character limit (more incoming in 5.)

Bump continued

Ok after the events documented above combat mostly ends for me save for losing one Incursus on a gate when I got jumped by a small blue blob. Of course they still don't have anyone willing to do arranged fights or able to defend their HQ but what can you do?

Well this is what I can do. Come here and recruit.

Right now Blue Republic needs hard charging motivated leaders in the US prime time particularly more on the west coast time frame.

This is player driven emergent gameplay at it's best in a place where your contributions can have a lasting effect.

All we need to keep this going is more warm bodies so bring your alt bring your main shed those carebear tears and grow fangs. All we want to do is fight and have fun. Low drama low commitment PVP at it's best.

Well you can still roam without it.

You can still be in fleet without it, just make sure you have speakers plugged in so you can hear the FC.

If you can't hear the FC, then you are really going to struggle to keep up as per normal eve pvp with fleets.

Like Twigg said when soloing it doesn't really matter. For fleet stuff it's really important to at least be able to hear eve voice. Speaking is less important but still desirable so you can do things like "break break got a cane pointed just off undock please help" etc.

RVB is PVP for the lazy and we don't want to have to type or read when we don't have too ;-)

If your sound card is bad you might consider a usb headset those will have their own built in sound card and can be gotten pretty cheaply.

GENERAL UPDATE =D

Ermm well nothing major going on recently... But ill run it down :)

Yesterday us reds set up tents on blue hq, a while later a small blue BS fleet undocks and we decide to have a pop :)

Five minutes later we have killed a domi and a geddon, and lost a cruiser!

http://redfed.eve-kill.net/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=7018262

Guess who got the loot again ;)

So yeah, was only fair to help out the guy who lost his thorax so I sent over 16M to cover his losses, as im nice like that :P

After that little skirish blues werent to up for fighting, so we purpled up and sent a 50 man gang into lowsec in the hope of grabbing some nice kms. Alas everyone ran for the hills once we showed up and we got one imicus at some point xD

But otherwise thats about it, looking forward to tonight being first night of the weekend, should get some lovely fights :)

OH AND JOIN RVB IF YOU HAVENT ALREADY!

Not much to report at the moment things are pretty slow in my timezone so I'm having to work really hard for every kill I get.

Blue's been set back on it's heals pretty badly with Orion's departure to deal with things more important than EVE and Red's pure brutal competence.

But to give one an idea of what RVB is like we in Red Command were discussing last night what to do to get Blue back up on it's feet.

The current plan is to move some pilots and FC's over to Blue Rep to help train some of their pilots and FC's.

This is the sort of place that RVB is we want fights lots of them and like it when they are challenging enough that we actually lose a some of them.

So bring isk and testicular fortitude on down, join a team and get down with some destruction.

Joining R v B is the best (and most fun) thing I've done in Eve. I'd thoroughly recommend joining to anyone; it's a fantastic place to learn a bit of pvp without the danger of being podded (most of the time anyway!).
Also, a huge thankyou to the chaps that organise it, it's really appreciated by the rest of us.

RVB is a great place to learn how to pvp. I was involved in some of the most fun fleet fights i have ever been involved in. What started off with a mostly cruiser fight and ended with a mostly battleship and battlecruiser fight. It was truely exciting to part of such a big fleet. In two hours I lost 2 Cruisers but was involved in 2 Battlecruiser kills 6 Cruiser kills 1 Destroyer and 1 Frigate kill. I would highly recommend RVB if you want to learn how to pvp. Off to setup some more cruisers to take in to battle. Good hunting Azriel.

Pheww lots happened today, so was well worth updating!

Well we start from a few days ago when we were wardecced by a corporation, and they're PVP experience can be summed up in one word: lol

http://redfed.eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=7125361

Fast forward to today and....

We go straight into a large fleet fight, about 40 pilots in total going head to head on a gate in alenia!

http://redfed.eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=7132561

I lost my first BS in PVP, but the fight was rather epic with reds holding the field!

After that we got intel of a thrid party and our fleet chased him through several systems untill he met up with his buddy:

http://redfed.eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=7133528

We decided to chase them back to their home system another two jumps away, where RVB spectated a rather one sided FW fight. We snagged the loot and headed back to hq.

On the way back our FC Lonewolf announced it was his birthday, so he was showered in gifts including the acculated junk of three months worth of RVB that was gathering dust in my hangar xD

After that fleet disbanded, and I spun my ship in station untill intel came in of a Hurricane one jump out. So off I trot to see whats up.

Once I arrived he was sitting 10K off, I stayed cloaked as I was sure i was getting some reinforcements to help me out. Alas they never came, I decloaked and the cane warped off. I stayed on the gate when the cane came back. So again I ask for help as he starts agressing. I burn away from gate to scram him when I realise im being neuted, pointed and webbed. No worry as help was coming? Wrong.

A Myrm and a rifter joins in on the bashing, keeping my poor ship neuted, webbed and scrammed I was dead before help arrived.

I keep and ear out in fleet as I here a red BS and BC are heading in to clear up, a bit late but off to kill the baddies nonetheless. Alas this couldn't have been more wrong. We quickly discover that cane and the myrm have a stupidly huge buffer fit with the effects of the HG slaves and they manage to finish off the BS, however we manage to finish off the cane before they get out.

http://redfed.eve-kill.net/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=7133988
http://redfed.eve-kill.net/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=7133997

All in all a very active day. Filled with obvious ups and downs, with a few surprises inbetween. This is why RvB is great in the way it changes daily and provides many lessons for you to learn from. Before now I hadn't lost as much as I lost today, but it was worth it for the lessons learnt.

No matter how many times I tell people that this isn't some sort of Gentlemans dueling society we still get these idiots who cry about getting ganked.


RVB is about fighting and killing and losing ships not fair fights. Now we do generally have the closest things your going to find to a fair fight in EVE when it comes to our arranged battles and the fact that we honor 1v1s but you can not undock your solo frig and not take precautions against getting ganked.

Now we need pilots. Blue especially needs qualified pilots in the US playtime. EU is a bit different I think there are actually more active pilots in blue during that playtime but Red still kicks their backsides in so they probably still need help.

Of course people are looking to gank you. It is EVE after all. Wot you think the FW folks aren't looking to gank you given half the chance? Or maybe the low sec pirates only want honorable fights? Wormholers? Null sec defense fleets? High sec suicidegankbears?

You don't cry about getting ganked you gank em back.

Now for a little battle report

"So Delelia manages to scare up a fleet tonight and we do one engagement in Meroles normal affair nothing of note.

We agree to a second fight in Vaere so I gather up my fleet and head over to a deep safe I have. Anyway we're sitting there and I tell Delelia to pick a planet since we picked the first one we see them enter local then a couple minutes later the overview goes red.

I'm "oh Pirmary is" I don't even remember who it was that we took out first. Then the Harpy registers and I call for it's doom. then on to the next one. I totally missed the Crow until after the fight is done (my anti-sniper guys did it in). After we demolish blues (ok they did kill four of us to the 7 we killed so it wasn't completely lopsided) I'm talking to Del in command turns out they must have gotten this safe when I flew with blues a couple weeks ago. (note to self burn safes once the Opposing teams sees them) and they were as surprised to see us there as we were them.

Then on the way back one of my guys calls a blue thrasher on the alenia gate. I warp down and decide wth another killmail before going to bed. Then Blues start bringing in their gank fleet.

I manage to pop the thrasher but don't last quite long enough to deagress before my punisher pops to the combined fire of their Caracal and Navy slicer was a close thing though another second and I'd have gotten away.

Was a nice little trap Delelia set for us on the way out (note to self do not engage bait thrasher when laden down with loots from the last fight)

Was some of the best fun I've had in RVB in a while and reminds me of why I stick around."

This is the sort of thing RVB is about and the kind of pilots we need are the ones who experience that sort of fight and instead of whining about ship losses laugh and fit another ship to go out again.

This is spot on!

I have been with these guys three weeks now (though my last two weeks have been a little off due to my wife coming home with our baby... now I have to pretend to be working!)

The only time I had seen an FC 'arrange' a fight was when the we struggled to get the two opposing gangs together. Half at a time would warp in to the whole host of opposition and then warp out, after a few times we agreed to just meet at a moon.... and then it was a whole lot of fun!

I am having a whale of a time there, my only gripe is that I can not play more than I am 8O(
