Preface

The NC, back for over two weeks, had  failed to make any forward progress on regaining lost Tech moons.  In all, since their return, they had gained two – losing a Super-Carrier in each “success” – and lost five other Tech moons to the cunning Legion.  This was all about to change as NC got mad serious and pleaded for every ally to aid them in what was to be a great purge of PL assets.  In all, twenty three towers were reinforced.  In order to prolong the good fights, PL High Command decided to short-time some towers for an immediate response, and then time the remaining towers for the following day.  As such, two distinct yet connected fights occurred over the course of two systems.

Day One:  WLF-D3 – Commeth The Moment, Commeth The Man.

A short-timed tower was set to exit reinforcement in WLF.  The Legion lay in wait to see what response the NC would bring.  As time progressed, it was evident that this was going to be all or nothing for the NC – even ordering the Goons to take a break from their escapades in Fountain.  In all, nearly  five-hundred NC had amassed.  It was time for The Legion to respond.
Call went out from PL High Command for all PL to defend their honor.  While most alliances would look at 5:2 odds in despair, that is not how The Legion operates.  Lead by High Admiral Fintroll, PL assembled in their Hellcats – nearly 120 strong; a beautiful disaster was inevitable.   With PL Advanced Scouts stalking their prey as they meandered toward WLF, Commander Fintroll looked upon his fleet.  He felt the subtle battle brotherhood, more potent even than the cause for which they were fighting; it was a mysterious fraternity born of the smoke and danger of death.  “No matter how big or how little your place in life may be” he said “you have a grindstone and people will bring axes to you.  None escapes.  Many people would look upon our enemies in fear and trepidation, but no – this is a gift and we should be grateful for it.  We accept this challenge so that we can feel the exhilaration of victory.”

While the NC gang was traveling to their destination, opportunity arose.   A once loyal NC pilot, dejected by the state of his alliance, defected to PL and offered to help.  PL High Command was unsure on how to best utilize this resource.  Admiral Jogyn had a cunning revelation, “we know our enemy and we know them to be clumsy and uncoordinated on even their best days” he began, ” so why don’t we just light a cyno when they are moving and see what happens?”  Blissful  simplicity.  PL Recon Agent Blackhorizon gave the word to light the cyno when the Super-Capital fleet had orders to jump.  Lo and behold, a Nyx appeared in the PL home system.  An unfortunate turn of events for him as he was quickly shot down and reduced to wreckage in under a minute by the tenacious Legion.   A good omen for future fights, for sure

No more time for interruptions, the NC gang had now lumbered into the target system: WLF.   A mixed fleet of just under five hundred, however disorganized or rife with fear, are always formidable.  The Legion thrives on risky endeavors, and with a word Supercapital Legion assembled – hoping to be the great equalizer in the fight.  Taking enemies by surprise, a PL cyno was deployed in WLF and the fleet bridged in with a blaze of glory.  The NC were stunned in disbelief, only one-hundred and sixty combined PL came in to combat their five hundred? Surely they believed victory to be imminent.

High Admiral Fintroll took helm of the PL War Machine, aided by no less than five immortal heroes of The Legion and began conducting a ferocious symphony of catastrophe, dealing death with freakish fervor.  Titan Doomsdays rained down, Fighters flooded space, and a blinding rage of lasers was ever-present – to the NC it seemed a definitive cacophony of death, but every masterful stroke was with purpose; The Legion was possessed with a fighting spirit.   As the hardened PL warriors gazed out at their foes – who were literally in all directions – they saw in their eyes amazement and curiosity.  As fighters, they were nothing but liars masquerading as something more.  As each Hellcat fell he took thirteen NC with him, considering the near 5:2 advantage the opponents had, suffice it to say it was an acceptable loss to the now jovial PL High Command.  After two hours of fighting, NC felt the hot whips of panic and – with the odds now even – they began to disengage.  PL firmly held the field amidst three hundred and fifty enemy wrecks, with only twenty-six Hellcats down.  Dejected, disparaged, and utterly embarrassed, the NC sulked home and disbanded all of their gangs.  PL saved their towers and acquired two new ones in the process.  Commander Fintroll’s achievements were inordinately good, extravagantly good, offensively good, even detestably good.

The first day was over, but it was merely an intermission; there would be no rest for PL as the NC were already pleading for more numbers.  Goons were once again ordered to halt their activities abroad and show a full force.

Day Two:D -8SI1 – PL Roll The Dice Once More

Upon the heels of an embarrassing defeat, the second day was even more vitally important, with seventeen towers coming out of reinforced.  The NC had suspended all gangs for the day and called once again for all to come.  Unable to find a good counter for the PL Hellcat Formation, NC formed everything.  Drakes, Maelstroms, Fleet BS, AB HACs, Sniper HACs, Bombers – anything and everything was accepted; the Kitchen Sink tactic was in full effect.  Total numbers peaked at just above 650.  PL responded again with a respectable ninety.  Waiting for the perfect time to strike, Commander Fintroll took time to speak to his fleet:  “Our enemies reek of desperation.  They have amassed fleet too large to take head on, however if we have any shot at victory we will seize it without hesitation as we are accustomed – with blaze, blood, and danger.”  PL patiently waited to strike.  The NC had ravaged five towers and were cautiously optimistic as time passed.  They all hoped that with these numbers PL wouldn’t chance attacking them.  PL High Command decided to take action and moved to the NC’s next system, SS-GED, where three towers were vulnerable to destruction and where PL had reinforced the node.  Wrought with trepidation, the NC gangs avoided SS-GED at all costs and opted instead to head toward D-8, a system in the wrong direction where merely two towers were vulnerable.  If the towers in D-8 were somehow saved, the NC gang would be unable to assault the other towers before they could be saved.

The decision was made: PL would move their gang to D-8 to stall the enemy for ten minutes – the estimated time to sufficiently repair both towers.  With the enemy gang only one jump away, PL acted quickly and immediately bridged in front of their enemy.  PL Triage Crews began to work on repairing the first tower as the NC gang jumped their 650 in under 100 PL.  With the tower now at 40%, the race was on – would the NC see through the convenient bait, or would they make a run straight for the towers?  The NC gang materialized and brought with them horrendous lag.  Reps came to a grinding halt and shots fired at a snails-pace;  the PL War Machine was bogged down by a familiar foe.  Eight Triage-cycles later, the tower moved from 40% to 43%  Staring defeat firmly in the eyes, PL did not waiver and continued their distraction.  With fates sealed, PL Triage Crew were ordered to abandon their posts and move on to save the next set of towers.  The PL fleet, meanwhile, was given orders to disengage.  In all, twenty-eight Hellcats fell,  along with their support carriers who had weathered the storm as best they could.  With thirteen towers still left to save, the night was far from over.  The sting of battle was short-lived as PL again replenished losses without impunity.  Now one-hundred and twenty Hellcats were formed,  ready to support the Triage Crew.

As expected, the NC had pigeon-holed themselves into the wrong system and were unable to make it to the next towers.  Having experienced their first victory over PL in over two months, and with the NC fleet becoming unruly, the orders were given for them to stand down.  The next batch of towers were set to come out in two hours, and PL were eager for round two.  The remaining ten towers were saved with little resistance. One tower in VG- was targeted by a 50-man NC gang.  PL, not wanting to cause a scare, approached with twenty-five AB Armor HACs.  Nearly half the NC gang fell victim to PL’s vicious attack.  An NC reinforcement fleet was called, so PL obliged once more while repping the tower.  Now numbering 60, the NC gang charged in once again were greeted by the same result.  Taking zero losses and saving the tower, a combined 90 man NC gang had suffered 40 losses before finally accepting that they were out-classed.

Prologue and related links:

Over the course of the great NC push, PL had lost seven towers, and some 115 ships.  However, in the same time span the feisty Legion took down three tech towers, three Super-Capitals, and some 430 ships.  Since NC has returned from a failed Drone campaign, they have netted  a single Tech moon – with four NC towers set to come out in the next day.

Note on battlereports: The numbers on each side are not totally accurate, as happens during large encounters some people end up on the wrong sides (namely bombers and duders with smartbombs), and some just (like Logistics) never actually make it on there.  The breakdown on the PL board is a great help, as it shows alliances involved on each side.

    Confirmed, old battle report, too proud of the Taylor Swift meme, lacking in facts, very creative roleplay writing though. Failed Drone campaign is an interesting take. NC steamrolled Geminate and Kalevala, before abandoning Kalevala completely as they had no interest in it. Big wall of troll.

    Why not discover some new memes Evenews24? Like All your bases are belong to us, do you like mudkips, OVER 9000!, or even lolcats? My vote is for Raptor Jesus. He is amusing yet cool. You could raise your trolling to new levels with these “new” memes.

      That is pure gold. Out of all the reasons for fail I’ve heard, that is awesome. NC should try it to: “Our ships weren’t destroyed by PL, we arranged to have them blown up as part of a secret strategy to blind the PL with explosions”. Thats about as believable as PL’s “WE DIDNT FORGET TO STRONT, WE MEANT IT FOR SECRET STRATEGY!!1!1!”

      Can I suggest a new Eve term? We can call it the “PL Defense”: Where you totally mess up, have a huge FAIL moment, and then come up with the silliest, most laughable excuse for it.

      “I lost my Titan on purpose because…” (complete the sentence using the “PL Defence”)

            But they won the first days battles. Which had the ones that where shortstronted. If you don’t like the facts you can’t just change them because you like it in the but.

    Where is the part in the battlereport where the DDOS on NC communications was launched by PL, at the exact time the fake cyno was lit so that the correct one couldn’t be communicated? Where is the fake speech regarding the DDOS?

    “Verily, thou art wise and thy purple members are throbbing with lust for each of thy kin in PL, togetherest thee shalt smite the evil voices of the Northern Demons with great wrath and courage. If ever there cometh a time of pride and honor to tell thou grandchildren about, this is surely it, verily! They mayeth taketh our lives, but we will takest their voices!!!”

    Fintroll raised his 2 handed sword with +2 stamina and +4 dexterity into the air, his horse reared atop the hill, silhouetted against the rising sun, and the brave warriors of the Legion didst cheer mightily. With a downward sweep, the foul voices of the Northern Demons were silenced.

    Translation: PL launched an illegal DDOS on NC’s Teamspeak at the exact right moment to get a gank on a Nyx. They were proud about it, as it proves their skill and courage.

    The main issue with evenews24 is that anyone can post under any alias without registering. Unfortunately this is like a red rag to a bull for the sperglords in the NC minor alliances.

    If they posted with their real names I would have them kicked so fast from Majesta and RAGE. I’m holding this coalition up with the sheer magnetism of my personality and FCing. These spergelords are the ones that constantly die in Drakes and ratting Erebus’s.

    Favorite part of story: “PL High Command decided to short-time some towers for an immediate response”.

    Translation: Learn what stronting is PL. FFS, this is why you are unable to hold sovereignty. You can fly a ship and press the pew pew button just fine, but you completely fail to grasp the complexities of managing space. PL, a one dimensional alliance sticking to the only thing they are good at, and avoiding that which is totally beyond them. All PL’s talk about courage is laughable given they are too scared to hold sovereignty, knowing they could not manage it or defend it if tied down. You are just a larger version of the Orphanage, annoying but inconsequential and of little consequence.

        A decision that was made for them almost a year ago, when they lost their 35 approx systems in a massive failscade. They were wiped off the 0.0 sovereignty map, and now claim “We didn’t want space anyway!” They have ajusted well though, and do manage to earn good isk, and have mostly overcome their bitterness of being annihilated in the space sov game.

    “The sting of battle was short-lived as PL again replenished losses without impunity.”

    Impunity: exemption from punishment or freedom from the injurious.

      The site is pretty much about PL and for PL. For an alliance that cannot even hold sovereignty, they sure get talked about a lot. No sovereignty, are not involved in the big battles, just medium ones, no real takeovers, avoid big fights…

      But this just in:
      “Word has reached Evenews24 that a PL player stubbed his toe! However, it was a glorious stubbing, and given is pure guts, courage and determination, he managed to avoid crying, thou there was some moisture in his eyes. In response, he exclaimed to the culprit (a door frame), “Thou mayest stubbeth my toe, but THOU SHALT NEVER TAKE MY FREEDOM!!!”. We are pleased to report that if the same had happened to an NC player, they would have cried, and called everyone they know for cuddles, the carebears.”

      I should write for this site, for real.

      The fact that many PL pilots were online but refused to log in didn’t help their numbers cause either. Their large titan and super force was conspicuously absent, after receiving false reports that the NC super fleet was on standby ready to jump them. They stayed away from a suspected ambush that was never in place.

    So while I respect PL and their accomplishments I’m honestly getting really tired of all their rhetoric. They just go on and on about the golden fleet and the magical Mr. Fintroll (who to an objective third party appears to be a backstabbing power hungry guy), honestly i was glad when they took some losses, maybe it’ll put a cap on excessive ego.

      The NC don’t care about individual battles, but they ALWAYS win the war. Only the small and petty focus on meaningless skirmishes whilst being unable to see the bigger picture, and lose the war. PL will no doubt win a few more battles and strut around, but can they win what matters, or will they be overall losers in the end?
