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.

[Mandatory 300 quote]

We fought in the shade Cool


I have some rather nice screenshots of BRUCE quite literally blocking out the sun with our ships.

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


Sorry, I must have completely missed that... Who are you again?


Are you serious lol.

Apparently you havn't been anywhere near Orvolle in the last few months.

Haha, didn't matter. Was just a little roaming gang that stumbled onto an unholy pile of ships fighting each other.

FC: How's MHC?
Scout: Wtf? 200 in Local
FC: Ok, jump in.
Gang: Wtf?

Voice comms were a laugh.

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.


Well Fried if you're only a scavenger measuring your victories by the amount of the loot, you might be right, but I ask you to see the big picture here, you were in MHC at that time to kill a POS and in the morning, the POS was still alive and your fleet dead (1st wave, 2nd wave and so on). Saltire managed to show this, posting those links so if you missed them please go back and analyze those closely, you may find the truth about the battle. Very Happy

I know I shouldn't feed them but ...

You assume too much and know too little. Instead of an hour of sitting there shooting a POS we got 5 hours of pretty much non-stop fighting. Which do YOU think is more fun? Remember this is NPC space - attacking a POS is done to force fights as much as/more than to actually kill the POS.

When the fight ended we had a 70-80 man fleet with a decent chunk of cap-ships sitting at that POS with all the wrecks. Every gun/ewar module on the POS was already disabled - and the shields were taken down to about 80% from us pot-shotting it while we gathered the loot. There wasn't an enemy ship on the battle-field. I'd think it's fair to say that had we wanted to, we could have reinforced that POS easily. But we didn't. Why? We'd got what we came for - and noone felt like sitting around shooting a POS with no chance of a fight.

Just because YOU think killing the POS was our over-riding objective doesn't mean that it was. Before we set out from PC9 our fleet was told something like "If we're lucky we'll get to kill a load of EXM - but we'll lose a ton of ships ourselves."

We got lucky.

Well that load of EXM ships you've killed is a small fraction of your loss so I can't see where and when you were lucky Very Happy

Nah, don't feed them, Sam.

BRUCE understands.
Some of the ExM understand.

Anyone else, meh, let them believe what they want. Outside perception of BRUCE has never really been our concern anyhow. We play fair, conduct ourselves fairly, and speak plainly, truthfull- anyone who doesn't get us, or that, or chooses to dismiss our words, not our problem.

BRUCE is done here.

Good fight, ExM. We'll do it again soon. Cool

I'd just like to say great battle report. The only way you could have made it better would be for a Covert to take screen shots at key moments.

Come on guys. No point in this degenerating into yet another COAD smack fest. Theres a couple thousand of threads already dedicated to that.

BRUCE apparently achieved their self-stated goals, and EXM definitely achieved their own. It's kinda pointless to debate it any further.

Re-reading my own posts, I see no smack, nor any editing...

Everything I say is my own opinion and does not represent that of ExM or SYLO.

I'm just pointing out that where someone said most of the BRUCE losses were t1 cruiser, they need to look closer... What was it, 80 BS kills last count?

Oh, and while we're here, I just have to point out that the EXM defense halting at 0300 was not due to some tremendous BRUCE victory, rather a difference in timezones. Again, no smack, just letting those know who are under the dellusion of any other circumstance.

\o syndicate.

We actually had a decent sized gang up there a couple of hours earlier, and props to ExM for responding so quickly. 20 man gang warped up on snipe spots at gate in a matter of minutes. We backed down from that fight though. Cool

Eight of you saved me the embarrassment of showing up at the battlefield in my ratting Typhoon. I logged on yesterday, heard about the big battle going on and raced to the scene from Y9G - and got blown up by 8 EIN at a safe spot waiting for orders to jump in to join the fight.

Oh well. Don't go the the battle by yourself is the lesson here. ugh

BRUCE contains The Graduates, who were an integral part of the Ivy League (home of Eve University) for a long time. Therefore, by association and bloodlines, BRUCE automatically gets +5 coolness points.

What does this have to do with the battle? Absolutely nothing. Glad everyone had fun though, as Fun > All.

This wasn't mentioned in the battle report but when our gang was in MHC we stopped at planet 3 for a minute and there were about 40-50 assorted wrecks.

How did your fight wind up at a planet.If you could embelish on the story a little I would be grateful..

One of our carriers was having a lag/desynch nightmare so tried to warp from the battle and back in again. Upon warping out his client totally crashed. He logged back in to find himself at planet 3 surrounded by the bad guys. A force was sent to try and assist the carrier and a battle ensued at the planet. Sadly the carrier wasn't saved. ExM did a great job on finding and pewing but it's a victory for lack of client performance and causality unfortunately.

On another note. Nice job everyone. The best battle I've been in yet and everyone conducted themelves with supreme respect and patience with regards to that lag. Just a shame I had to leave at 2.15 and be up for work at 5.30.

Let's make this a regular appointment :)
