In Querious: The system of L-6BE1 was the site of another Drake Massacre. PL brought the same fleet type that has won them many battles in the past, and the Stainwagon/Atlas coalition brought the same drakes as before, again with a 2:1 numerical advantage. It wasn’t enough, in short order the Drakes were killed, and the station was taken by Pandemic Legion.

In Querious: The system of I1Y-IU had an eerily similar battle as yesterday, with PL’s standard Abbadon/Logistics setup vs. a drake heavy blob. This time the blob was AAA led, and the results were very different. The fleet fielded by AAA and allies drove the PL fleet off the field. In addition to having an even greater numerical superiority than the fleet yesterday, this Drake army had significantly more shield logistics backing them up. Perhaps that was the tipping point.

There’s turmoil in the Northern Coalition as three corporations have left Wildly Inappropriate and joined R.A.G.E Alliance. This brings R.A.G.E to over 4000 members, and Wildly Inappropriate to under 3000.

March 16th

In The Citadel: The Northern Coalition Alliance Mostly Harmless lost 2 motherships to Invicta today, despite significant support from Mostly Harmless after the tackle. A poor piloting decision later led to Invicta losing it’s own mothership as well, helping to even the odds a bit.

The situation in the north has heated up just a bit, with one of the corps that left Wildly Inappropriate claiming a Technetium moon as a corp asset. In the immediate aftermath RAGE seemed to back their new members, but since no Northern entity has Technetium moons as corp assets, they quickly reversed the position. It seems that soon Wildly Inappropriate will have a new Technetium moon to dole out.

March 17th

In Geminate: A battle raged and ended with 20 Drone Russian supercapitals dead, in huge loss sure to demoralize their war efforts. The Northern Coalition forces in 020-2X showed up for a reinforcement timer, which was completed in a short amount of time, and then baited the Drone Russians into dropping their fleet on a much larger force. The Drone Russians lost 8 Titans and 12 supercarriers, while the NC lost 1 titan much later in an unrelated incident. Is this the turning point in the month long battle for 020?

        Stainwagon originally was composed of Stain Empire C0ven and Systematic Chaos. When -A- lost space and moved to Stain what left of original Stainwagon (C0ven, SE) help them forming a Stain Coalition or CAAASEROL.

    Nice, and although I'll agree that the second -A- & Co. CTA vs. PL could be attributed to better leadership, the real change involved broadcasting targets via fleet rather than announcing them on comms. PL logistics weren't able to follow our moves until after a fat alpha had already landed. Moral of the story? PL spies can suck it.
