The situation in Delve certainly has evolved from an interesting incident, to a pretty unpredictable predicament. Several weeks ago Ev0ke deployed to the NPC sov system of KFIE-Z in a bold move that put them within jump range of -A- allies in both Querious and Delve. The move also allowed them to pursue opportunistic shots against the other Delve invaders, such as their old Northern Coalition enemies, led by Morsus Mihi and BricK sQuAD.

The NC has taken the approach to keep all their super-capital ships out of Delve (albeit within jump range). The reason for this is the superb numbers of Titan/Super-carriers Ev0ke and friends are capable of bringing to every fight once the decision to press the I-WIN button is made. Another consequence of this deployment comes from the fact that the chosen Ev0ke deployment system is right next door to the rest of the NC staging systems. This action has not gone unnoticed, and has been interpreted by the Northern Coalition as the perfect situation to probe a bit and pick up fights.

Old Blooded Feuding Neighbors

On Friday, there was a massive engagement in the 1DH-S solar system. You can see the battle-summary here. Long standing RAWR FC TraderJohn took the task to ramp up a sizable fleet in preparation for the upcoming slug-fest, making sure to let everyone know that this was not going to be a “get your shit beaten up and go back to ratting” situation as the Ev0ke led fleet started camping the 1DH-SX Blood Radiers station. After a while, Brick Squad and Morsus Mihi felt confortable with their ArtyBaddons, and undocked with both logistics (guardians) and carrier support.

An unexpected guest

Both sides pew-pew’d each other to average loses for about ten (10) minutes, after which a surprise NCDOT hellcat fleet bridged into the fight quickly followed by the Ev0ke super-capital fleet. The Northern Coalition de-aggressed and docked up at this point due to Ev0ke/NCDOTs superior capital numbers, and lost several carrier while mass-attempting to dock.

An Angst-filled Community for Justice

About fifth-teen minutes later, the Northern Coalition faithfully undocked again bearing the same hell-cat fleet sans the carrier support. The Ev0ke/NCDOT super-capital ships had left the field already when the Brick sQuad fleet made the choice to adjoin their fleet with the RAWR one in an effort to better coordinate the target calling. The Ev0ke/NCDOT logistic wing suffered at a steady pace with the NC fleet displaying discipline regarding their patient FC’s target-calling, who waited until most of his fleet had acquired their primaries before giving the order for all to fire at once while burning out of the deployed bubbles. The effect of this was that there was almost no effective transversal for the NCDOT/Ev0ke logis, effectively neutralizing a good chunk of their capabilities.

Interestingly enough there were some members of the -A-TEAM showing up for the the fight, ranging from the Cascade Probable guys (who brought the most of the numbers and thus take the name as the leaders of the expedition) to BORG “turn-coat-act” members, all siding with the Northern Coalition fleet (albeit in an opportunistic manner) and showing their hatred towards the Ev0ke and NCDOT fleet.

As the fight raged on, Ev0ke super-capital fleet started to show up on the field, but they didn’t stay for long as the Northern Coalition super-capitals started to log on nearby and the -A-TEAM fleet super-capital fleet was rumored to be also scrambled up. After the Ev0ke/NCDOT super-capitals jumped out, the tip of the balance leaned towards the Northern Coalition (feat. -A-TEAM) fleet which forced Ev0ke/NCDOT to turn back and hole up two systems from their KFIE-Z staging system. The hasty retreat resulted with a good portion of the subcap fleet dieing to the gate-camps that were already setup across the route.

Hey stop ruining the daisys!

Earlier today there was another engagement in the ‘hood’, which Jacob, a battle-reporter from RAWR/BRIX, brought to us as an exclusive.

Evoke came into system about 30 minutes before we had a form up with about 120 ships. Evoke bubbled the 1DH station with almost all of our ships in side. With the no one stepping forward to form the fleet a little early and go after them I took it upon myself to form a fleet and to start prepping for a big fight. They had brought Hellcats Abaddons and their autocannon fit Tempests along with about 25 guardians. They were continuing to stack ships into the system. We formed and got up to about 100 in fairly short order. I went with Hellcat Abaddons and ECM ships. I was working under the assumption that we need to be able to pour out the DPS and tank as hard as we can. I was then informed that BORG and Brick Squad had formed up mirrors to my fleet and it put our numbers at around 250. Evoke has at this point 170 or so and was slowly rising. We had carrier ready to go for capital support. I thought about keeping the fleets seperate or merging them in station. In hind sight we should have merged then and there and made our logistic’s lives a lot easier.

The first engagement we had with them started with us undocking and going to work on the bubbles. We needed to down them to permit our fleets movement on and off the grid if needed. I was unable to lock targets because I was setting up in a cloaking ship. The fleet ate through the bubbles in short order and Evoke came back on grid for more fights. The fight degenerated into who had the better logi for a while and evoke started losing that fight. NCDOT was batphoned and they brought in mroe Hellcats which landed on us at zero. We preceaded to burn though them rather quickly. They cynoed in supers which I was not prepared to deal with so I ordered the fleet to dock up. We spent that time licking our wounds taking a small break and replacing what ships we needed to. The enemy supers warped off and we went in for round 2.

Round 2 started a bit like the first time. Evoke had moved to a tactical above station and NCDOTs battered fleet had gone to the Z3V gate. We undocked and were set upon by Evoke. NC dot came back in and by my view had merged with the Evoke fleet. Evoke brought there super back on field and the fight was on. Both sides were holding rather well. Despite the presence of the Super our fleets main line held. I then basically said “Well fuck this” and called for all supers and to invite everyone that we knew who hated NCDOT and Evoke more then they hated Morsus Mihi to the party. We were taking steady losses but we were keeping the enemy super bubbled. At this point I ordered all sub cap fleets to merge into the main MM fleet to get better logistics running and a new fleet to form with nothing but supers and capitals. That did the trick on steaming our losses for a while.

The enemy supers eventually got free and escaped. In their panic to get the supers off and safe they neglected their main fleet which became rather scattered. Their main fleet broke free of the bubbles and ran to a planet and then warped to the Z3V gate. We pushed them though and then engaged them on the other side. What was an organized retreat on their part turned into a full blown rout back to KFIE. At this point I pressed the advantage and camped them into the system and started to siege their towers. After an hour or so the fleet was worn out from a 3 hour long enagegment and we called it a night.

Ship losses put us on the losing side but we forced them from the field which in my opinion is the bigger part of this. Thanks to all who helped out and came to the fight.

            What did we learn here today?

            EVE history is only written by space holding carebears. No offence intended, but there are different styles of gameplay in EVE. People join Ev0ke/NCdot because they enjoy fleet fight, they don't want to bother with PvE and defending Sov as much as having nice fights.

            As soon as you newbies (yet again, this is merely a fact) get this into your skulls you might have the chance to simply enjoy a nice fight w/o smacking in local or forums afterwards, no matther how the fight ended.

            Delve residents who are usually shooting Refugees decide to turn their turrets on Ejoke and Co.

            Delve D-Fence where happy with the status quo until you arrived (Ejoke/Ejoks) for good fights so you got them.

            See how long you Ejokes stay for independent fights until your Master (DRF/WN) call among you get to "Catch" now.

            I would not be supprised if curent evoke deployment was related to future DRF plans for the south. It is preventing delve nip from gaining stability that could remake it in to more or less coherent entity. Its more or less only region that wold be very difficult to control for DRF.

            August 15, 2011 at 8:03 pm
          4. Ex-NC

            EJOKE and their pets have been deployed to Delve by their overlords to keep the Refugee Coalition busy fighting for their newly acquired sov and to not deploy to Catch to help -A-. Their presence is a diversion and we knew of their impending arrival at least a week before they showed up.

            I don't think it's a mystery to anyone that the DRF want to control – either directly or through their subservient pets – the majority of 0.0 to expand their RMT empire. It's just a matter of time before the big red wagon comes rolling into Delve once they've finished up the current phase of their campaign.

          5. OhSnap

            You're trying too hard, mate. Seriously, Ejoks?

            OK, so Ev0ke and NCdot have history, that's why they helped each other in that fight. Just like Brick and MM but with more respect for each other. DRF being involved is just tin-foil hattery.

            Plus, I guess Ejoke will gladly fight "Delve D-Fence" (is that actually a "thing" now?) cause until now it looks like that's some pretty lousy defence and MM will definately leave Delve to fight for AAA or Goons sooner or later.

    Cant say I agree with MM's past conduct & loss of a region but its nice to see them dish out some organized hurt to a common enemy, Im also glad to see some help come from elsewhere…..

    I was there. It was a good fight from both sides. Equal losses although MM killed more isk wise by a little bit. Was the first fight ive been in for a while where excessive amounts of supers were used. Lag wasnt even an issue. And as to MM losing a region etc. It has benefited us more because we are working together better then we have in a long time.

    Props to EVOKE for bringing us good and fun fights.

      You seem to forget that this fight was not MM vs Evoke but MM/Brick/Co vs Evoke/NC./Co, so infact your side of the fight lost more isk according to killboard evoke side killed about 45billion and lost about 27 billion isk.
      So infact the fight was won clearly by the evoke side.

          They killed more then they lost, the towers that got rfed by MM and their new friends are all saved and evoke maintains a strong foothold in delve. According to my intel some of the pilots in mm and brick are already checkin options to get a new home for themselfs
          Just because MM and Co where able to push evoke off the field by superiors numbers doesnt make them a winner. Cause that happens to evoke alot considering how small they are and that the fight ended in the middle of the night for german TZ.

          So not losing supers is loosing – must be bricks point of view.

          I see evoke brought supers into your staging system in your primetime killing your station huggin triage carriers while you outnumber them at least 2:1.

          On the other hand MM/Brick brought supers to the end of the fight when evoke supers where already off the field and save, so you guys had your change to kill some of evoke supers and failed horribly at that task cause you where to affraid to face evokes supers with the odds already heavy in your favor.

          On the other hand evoke took 4 systems, some neo moons and is slapping your around as they wish while you sit in 1d and pretend to do well against them.

            So throwing around insults is your argument, when evoke came to delve they took like four of your system to get you out of your staging system and provok fights. But you chose to play the TZ card and did nothing to prevent evoke from doing so. As those system are worthless for an alliance as evoke and it was clear that you wont put up a fight for your npc grounds evoke lost intrest.
            Now that it is clear that you wont fight evoke out your staging system without carriers in docking range therere is no need for them to sbu your systems at this point, cause in 2 weeks when MM is sucking goon tits and threw you (brick) under the bus for some space evoke will have no issue to take all the space they want in delve.

          There's just a couple entities still blued together that were part of what once was who are spread out over multiple regions doing their own things.

          It is quite curious to see the hard-on some in EVE have for the remnants of the old Northern Coalition.

          No. The DRF will last and won't stop till they control all of 0.0 to support their RMT bot empire. Their original plan to take the western areas didn't work out and they got cock-blocked in Fade / PB / Deklein by Goons & Co (even if I don't care for Goons, much respect for holding the DRF at bay), so now they're moving to catch and -A- space to work their supercap blob magic there.

          HED-GP fell to DRF with incredible speed and -A- is now evacuating to Stain. Once the DRF finish their work there and establish control of the region, other surrounding regions will fall as well.

          Blue lists within DRF & Co will almost certainly be "trimmed" at some point to encourage some good fights, but you can rest assured that there will be NIPs in place so that everyone has their own little space to carebear / bot in to keep those isk faucets open at full capacity.

    Ev0Ke always brings good fights and I respect them greatly for that, it's just a terrible shame that they appear to be blue to the new biggest blob in the game: drf and pets ( cough ncDOT)

    The 2nd BR is the same battle as the first one just as its rather incorrect. Those unedcuated guys form brick dont seem to get when they lose a battle. What Brick always seems to forget that they have a colation of alliances with them as does evoke. So this battle reports just is about how well brick did at some point while their allies lost caps or BS to evoke at a pretty rapid speed. Just because brick doenst lose ships at some point doenst mean MM or BORG dont lose ships at all.

    The first fight was a turkey shot evoke where at alle time comfortable with the logistics, ofc lost ships but thats going to hapen in pvp – lost about 15 ships in that whole night in 1D, on the other hand NC lost most of the ew backbone and some guardians in the first 2 minutes of the engagment.
    When borg decided it would be smart to use tirage carriers they brought in supers to snatch a few carrier kills.

    In general the 2nd BR is pretty off and not realy accurate as its not realy close to what happend. Most facts are wrong, most assumptations are wrong too and its too much paddin on the back considering that NC and their new allies Borg lost this fight clearly by kills and just gained the upper hand because the fight lasted for hours and most Evoke abadons where short on cap sticks.
    The only part where evoke/co fucked up badly was then they moved towards kfie and got bubbled in z3, evoke lost more in z3 in 10 minutes then in 3 hours in 1d-.

    It's kinda funny that NC was hated so much only to see the "new NC" becoming the so much like old one. Guess it goes to show everyone is a hypocrite and it doesn't matter who you fight for, the smart ones join the winning side because there is where the fun lies.

    Artillery Abaddons are not called "Hellcats", they're simply "Arty Abaddons", or "Alpha Abaddons".

    Elise Randolph may not have coined the Hellcat, Elise used the word "Hellcat fleet" to describe the fleet composition PL used to kill a hell of alot drakes.

    People calling thier Alpha Abaddon fit ship a "Hellcat" was somewhat amusing the first couple of times I seen it, but i'm actually thinking that it's somewhat detrimental to the community to continue to mislead the ignorant into thinking "Hellcat fleet" is anything other then what PL coined it to be, which was…… Abaddons for DPS with T2 pulse, Guardians for logi, with DICs/HICs and T3s for tackle, instead of the interceptor/frigs you usually see for the job.

      I thought that Pulse Abaddons and/or Zealots were Hellcats

    We are still NC. Battle was a lot of fun, in the end evoke was singing that Iron Maiden song "Run To The Hills, Run For Your Lives" :)

    I was there. It was a great fight regardless what spin people want to put on it and I hope we can do it again, win or lose.

    BTW. that battle report is terrible. That's an old, now inactive Brick killboard. Why that link was provided is beyond me. A much better battle report can be found on the MM killboard – http://rawr.eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&adja

    It shows losses as about even for both sides in terms of isk. But in the end, the Brick / MM team held the field and sent Evoke & Co running. Interpret that as you will, but I take that as a victory (albeit a costly one) for the Brick / MM team.

    Either way though, it was an awesome fight. Both sides put forth their A game. I look forward to more of this.

    Failed at what? losing space, Who hasn't, even the might PL lost space. So the general use of fail is a bit misleading.

    good report, and btw HED has fallen.
    And so the attention of all english speaking players is moved from Operation RED ARROW towards some rather insignificant local sov changes in Delve.

    Lots of effort is placed here, as evident from coments, to show that the ex-NC is alive and even "has balls to log in super caps". Howether i question what will happen, should -A- wagon fail?

    In fact this action shows that certain elements of the RED ARROW think that the war with the -A- wagon is at its logical end, hence action in Delve.

    So if Evoke was kicking as much arse as they say in this thread, why did they bring in the supercaps? I was not at the fight, just reading the BR and comments.

    Evoke/NC. can only play agaisnt if they have you outnumbered.
    The only other way is to have superior fleet to yours and feel comfortable with it and then again is never gonna happen with this dudes. Now that they are leet and away from the DRF blob they feel the PAIN, trying to play the big boys in a hostile enviroment by themselfs.
    Good play MM/Brick boys.

    Did I read correctly ? NC FC's finally learn the proper way to primary and execute alpha strikes ? *falls on floor* well not quite but much better than the epic fail alpha fleets of the north.
