The following battle report was written from WhiteNoise. perspective, originally found in the here.

Battle Report: WhiteNoise. releases the BomberDrakes into Delve, mayhem ensues.

Battlereport from 1DH-SX Solar system (Delve) – September, 30.

During the last year White Noise. has been undergoing some crucial changes, which are worth to be mentioned. Though some old members of the alliance would not agree, the changes are for the better. One of the most important reformations is the change of the alliance status to multi-language in June 2011. At first this innovation was very unaccustomed for the russian-speaking members. English speech in ally chat, TS and all that… Some pilots didn’t like it… But now White Noise. has multi-language ally chat and at least half of the roamings are led by English speaking fleetcoms. These changes did not avoid the WN bomberwing. This means that all the commands are called in English if there are any Europeans pilots in fleet.

Let me introduce Lee Chanka to you (though I think most know him already :)), the man that flooded the alliance mail with almost daily shield roamings, organized the market, altogether, he’s the man that loves the game and makes it pleasant for many pilots of WN alliance. On Monday September, 26th it was decided to make up a roaming coordinated with bomberwing, on Thursday September, 29th the plan was scheduled and on Friday September, 30th the fleet departed. In Delve, Morsus Mihi, Brick Squad and their allies like to drop fleets of 200 on small roamings of less than 50 ships. Unfortunatly, WN killboard is down, so the related kills links will be given from eve-kill and DRF killboard, where the bombers’ killmails were manually posted.

Bombers entered the system 30 minutes before the time Lee Chanka’s roaming was expected to come, did quick preparations and waited. The local channel balanced between 160 and 200 hostiles. Two jumps before Lee’s roaming’s arrival Imperian on Machariel, old-hat, appeared in grid. Our roaming approached gate 1DH-SX in Z3V-1W Solar system, hostile fleet comes to the gate’s instance on the other side. We decided to “push” the enemy to our roaming and bombers salvoed. Part of the hostiles jump through the gate, some tried to jump but failed, 20+ killes at once. Our roaming jumped to 1DH-SX and took position convenient for bomb runs and shooting. Enemy moved to A-ELE2 Solar system, we were preparing for the next fight. Enemy jumps in, bombers bombing, roaming shooting while manoeuvring according to the “plan’. After all, the numeric advantage of the enemy was advent and our roaming had to move away from grid and prepare to leave the system. After coordinating we made a trap on gate Z3V-1W. Again a short fight, bomb run, enemy flees, and our roaming, mauled but satisfied, leaves the battlefield.
While we thought of our further moves, Ev0kes (+ to WN) appeared in local. In half an hour, after the enemy regrouped, a fight near the station was engaged. But, to general regret, our bombs drew the line in this fight. Enemies spooked all around the system or docked, Ev0kes, upset, left 1DH-SX.

This was the first WN roaming with English speaking FC coordinated with bomberwing.

    I love how the first paragraph brags about how WN became 'multilanguage' and yet this article is barely readable. Kudos, DRF.

      Perhaps you should work on your own English skills, then. The article is fine, even if clearly written by someone used to different grammatical structures.

    LOL-ed at "In Delve, Morsus Mihi, Brick Squad and their allies like to drop fleets of 200 on small roamings of less than 50 ships. "

    Then LOL-ed some more at Lee Chanka.

    1. Ditto. That made me chuckle too. Shows that the writer of that article doesn't spend any time in Delve.

      Since joining Brick in June (with the exception of some coalition CTAs), I've rarely seen our fleets exceed 75 members. The focus in Delve has been more on smaller gangs. We only tend to respond with blobs if we're blobbed in the first place. And even then, we're often likely to just blueball the aggressing blob rather than fight in a lag-fest.

        strange, the killboard shows 142 battlecruisers against a gang of 66, so I have to consider that you, in fact, are llying

          Yea, blobbers usually don't understand what blobbing is.

          Obviously there will be some exceptions, but overall Brick doesn't generally get fleets with more than 70-80. CTAs are a different story, as is the occasional (and I mean occasional) blob.

      Yeah, I was kind of wondering why 'Lee Chanka' kept coming up. Sounds like he must've written this article based on the equally shitty grasp of grammar in that article you linked…

      No you are being trolled for a horribly written article, and exaggerating the norm in delve. Maybe they had superior numbers but goonhaters coalition doesnt always

      1000 DRF engage 1500 hostiles and WN who brought 100 of the 1000 claim they alone engaged the 1500 hostiles. Keep up the good propaganda!

      BTW, fights involving bombers and supers don't count and only cowards brag about them.

    Lee Chanka also wields a sidearm when he goes to the LAN center. Yea he must be a well-adjusted individual.
