OP was a good read, and I have to say, it was good to see Lord Kesh tell his side of it. Self Destruct is bad...... To BYDI and N.L. stop moaning about FDN dropping capital ships on you, it gets boring, and as you can see FDN are quite capable of Cynoing their own fleets in. Its a valid tactic the same as gate camping and blobing, you lot very rarely fight unless you have the upper hand so why trash talk others for doing the same thing you do. Just think if you turned over a good leaf and became carebears you wouldnt have to worry about FDN's capital ships.

My diplomatic side is telling me to be nice and say things to likes of good trap foundation, lord kesh = bad for self destructuing, and alt-posters suck.

But after being witness so many times to fdn's "play-style"i can give no respect to fdn in anything they do or try to do. Kesh self-destructing was kinda lame yea but if you guys ***** about self-destructing being lame why not ***** about hot-drops being lame? Fail tbh for the double standard.
My proof on fdn's general fail (srry guys theres a few good members in you but most are too reliant on capital ships and the blob of carriers you always bring)

Oh, you do get insurance money from self-destruct? Isn't that insurance fraud? Shocked


Actually, would be great if you didn't get any insurance for self-destructing (including basic), as a new mechanic. Very Happy Great battle report btw.

I don't really understand Foundation's need to make a post about a very common, and relatively small fight, the same kind that happens hundreds of times per day all across New Eden.

I also don't find it to be a major accomplishment that they can win a battle with 3-4 times the support fleet and a carrier blob to boot. At the very least, not worthy of a COAD thread.

I believe the reason for the OP was two fold. One reason is because they are upset that a carrier was self destructed and they didn't get a killmail. The other reason is simply an attempt at trying to make Nocturnal Legion and Beyond Divinity look bad, and as for most of their posts, this is usually the case at hand.

They complain about the smack from Beyond Divinity but in all honesty Foundation seems to love the smack both ways, it's just a shame they are no good at it. This thread was created to generate forum smack, just disguised as a battle report.

It is an unfortunate consequence that me speaking my mind will result in this stupid thread being bumped to the top.

I agree with this guy. The OP was best I have seen for a while and made me laugh. Point of the thread is not the kills. That happens all the time.

Lord KesH made excelent reply which saved all that could be saved but somehow you and couple of others seem to want to drag that down and turn this into smackfest.

Great read. If a battle report is well written its a pleasure no matter how big or small the enagement is.
The Irony of hearing gate campers complain about being outnumbered is the icing on the cake.

One of the reoccurring themes I keep reading from fdn and friends on here is that bydi/scary camp gates where they blow up noobs with 10-15 ships against 1 ship, so they shouldn't complain when they get blobbed cuz they do it.

I would just like to say that gatecamping, and fleet engagements are completely different things, and you guys know that.

We appreciate, and of course prefer good fleet fights, but you know that it's not always possible to get a fleet fight, or even a small engagement at the drop of a hat. Sometimes if ya got nothing to do, a camp can be a fun way to pass the time until maybe a fleet shows up.

First and foremost, fdn, you guys do the SAME thing. Fdn does gate camps, where they blow up 1 ship with 10-15 or more ships just like we do.

In fact they are suppose to be NRDS anti-pirates however there have been a few occasions that we have seen where they have shot on a brand new alt completely unaffiliated with bydi/scary who was guaranteed to be nuetral to them. This was at one of their gate camps. I ask, how is this any different from when we camp?

I hear a lot of the fdn and their allies on here always complaining that bydi/scary will only come out to fight when we have the better odds (more ships).

The truth is, we enjoy fighting outnumbered, and have intentionally engaged in fights where our opponent had 2 to 3 times the number of ships as we had.

For just one example, here is a 12 man bydi/ruin gang (ruin has since merged into bydi), taking on a 28 man PURE alliance gang. As you all know PURE are good pvp'rs and by no means a pushover.

If you look at the bottom of each column where it says ships fielded and ships lost, you will notice that we decimated the entire 28 ship fleet without losing a single one of our 12 ships.

Engagement Link: http://bydi.griefwatch.net/?p=engagement&kill=3485

I was FC of this battle on my main, and my scout had called out their ship types to me from 2 jumps away. I made the decision to hold position and get ready to fight.

Now if bydi doesn't like to fight outnumbered as you say, we had at least a good minute to avoid this fight, but we like to fight if we think we've got a good chance so we stayed.

Maybe if you had bothered to actually read the entire thread you would realize that many of the replies made by others have mentioned the fact that we shouldn't complain about being blobbed because we do it on gates. Fact is, gate camps are usually going to be one sided.

Other replies have said we only like to fight when we have the advantage in numbers.

I know it is not the point of this thread, but my post was simply to rebut those comments.

People who fight "outnumbered" in an engagement where more than half the enemies are shuttles, frigates and cruisers should be given badges? Do I bend-over to the mighty powa now or later?

Feel free to find the funny side to the OP BYDI, as Lord Kesh has. And in other news, gatecamps often kill people vastly outnumbered and get busted by people with bigger guns? Well **** me, they should call that PVP or something. Laughing
