BATTLE REPORT FROM DELVE. BoB found it important enough to deploy an abbadon class battleship to NOL. The Battleship,with numerous support, had been the core of a BoB fleet. Built several months ago it had fough in numerous wars. Today a coalition fleet compromised of numerous cruisers, frigs, BC and even TWO BATTLESHIPS OF THEIR OWN launched an attack. The BoB battleship war warped into a gate the coalition forces were attacking. However, it was quickly bubbled. As it's support crumbled the battleship began to take fire itself. But the two battleships of the coalition, with numerous support, ensured it took heavy damage. As BoB reinforcements came in a last ditch effort to save the ship it was destroyed.

What will this mean for BoB? After several hours being built in an outpost this is a severe blow. The two battleships that the coalition unleashed proved their recent edge in the industrial game compared to BoB. discuss

erm...did you guys not hear me...this is a BATTLESHIP!

Why are you not ranting and raving with anti-alliance/anti-coalition comments?! There should be ten threads on this! But I only see 6 replies! This isn't a frig or a cruiser! Its a battleship!

Absolutely what I was thinking as I read this, And it made me Grin like a Cheetah.
Back in 2003 a loss of this magnitude would have been comparable to a Titan Loss today.

Thanks for the Memories!!! Very Happy

I seem to recall no less than THREE coalition battleships being trapped and destroyed at a BoB pos last week, I enjoy how you toot up your own small achievements, but neglect to remember your own failures.

It's a known fact BoB are able to produce at least 2 battleships per month from their pos arrays in delve, and the coalition has yet to make any successful attacks on them.

Battleships are worthless in combat anyway, they're underpowered for the isk. For the price you could have ten or more cruisers. We were actually going to build one but I heard that Hoegaaaarden took off with the Goonfleet battleship fund to pay for some Puerto Rican *****.

This thread not only delivers - but there *might* even be a shread of truthiness to it. But as others have so aptly said, without real evidence - I don't know that I want to go all-in and say that I believe the OP.

If it turns out that this is true, then congrats all around, good fight, better luck next time BoB, and all the rest.

You are wrong. The battleship is the most legendary vessel in the entire universe. I guarantee if there was a universe-wide vote on the legendarily usefulness of a vessel, between cruisers and battleships, the battleship would win.

Since we are apparently in a time capsule, was this a MWD + AB Cruise Apoc? Im confused by this term "Abbadon" surely a fancy term for some crazy new setup....
