And now for a change, how about a good TEST Alliance Please Ignore battle report? UDSaxman from the Importan Internet Spaceship Leage sent us this nice battle-report written from a first person perspective:

TEST Alliance struts their stuff in the Battle of Hysera.

Past Friday, I received an eve-mail from a friend with the subject “Need a Batphone Op” which is something that totally peaked my interest. Upon more investigation, it turns out some Russians had reinforced a tower belonging to some of their friends in Hysera with 13 Dreads and they were most likely going to come back for more.

I talked to Townsend an some other people and got it setup on TEST’s calendar and what-not and decided to see where it goes.

January 15th – day of the op

BDEAL was stuck doing POS shit so I jump cloned my alt to empire and flew to Otosela (The Forge Region) to get TEST formed up to help with this op. I had only gotten about 9 guys when I got a broadcast from Blitz Kotare that they were going to go try to gank pubbies, so I got in contact with him and with some persuasion, I managed to get a 70+ man TEST fleet to come out for the fight.

Fleet proceeded to Tama to stay off the radar of the attackers while the POS owners attempted to draw the Russians were very timid and hesitant to bring out their capitals. When we heard the POS was out of reinforced and the Russians were in subcaps, there were quite a few concerns but eventually a couple of carriers repping the tower plus a bait Nyx (yes they logged a Nyx into the tower with 13 dreads sitting in system v0v) got their attention. When the dreads eventually did siege, fleet burned to the Hysera gate in and as a fleet jumped in and warped to the tower.

…And then the fun began.

When we arrived on the tower, there were around 15 dreads seiged on it along with subcap support and multiple carriers on field along with a bunch of friendly subcaps and caps. A Moros was called primary and soon enough dropped and was followed by a Phoenix, which dropped quickly too. Once most of the dreads were down, we cleared some of the subcaps which dropped as soon as they were broadcast and it was pretty much a turkey shoot. As the capitals died, their pilots were repeated reshipping and coming back for more too, with some pilots losing 3 ships in the process.

Logistics were AMAZING during the fight and friendly losses were minimal considering the sheer dps of their fleet. Losses were mainly smaller ships, like rifters, that were lost due to smart-bombing and a recon and a friendly hictor.

After we left, they came back in subcaps and did kill the tower which had already served its purpose.

Total Killed: 71 ships worth 22.09B Total Lost: 24 ships worth 0.58B :)

Thanks again to TEST for coming out for this and being simply awesome for the help. And 1917 for being terrible pilots but reshipping regardless.

riverini’s note: although TEST brought by far the largest fleet into the grid, the banner goes to BDEAL, since they submitted the BR.

    killing a bunch of dreads is way less impressive than it was 2 years ago which makes me sad. but nice trap none the less.

    1. Credit should be given for killing 22bil of shit in lowsec, that kind of opportunity doesn't present itself every day.

      Also Test being the handicapped-sticker-warrant alliance they are, am surprised they didn't fuck this one up. I guess having WSHOT is really paying up (and am not trolling, those guys are pretty decent)

      With my exsperiance with how shitty the lag is in lowsec fleet fights can be I'm impressed that the dreads didn't just self destruct and the node didn't crash on them.
