EvE pilots, by nature, are hard to unite and find the concept of “finding common ground” almost blasphemous.  The one thing that seems to unite a vast percentage of capsuleers is the joy of seeing a number of PL super caps downed in combat.  The following are a series of BRs submitted from the day that PL found itself minus two super capitals.

The day Pandemic Legion lost Supers Caps in 8EF-58

This is my 1st report ever, So don’t expect to much. Only been playing the game about a year and so I am still noob in the big scheme of things.

So I wanted to get into some big fleets fights. So I joined a Black Aces Military Academy/En Garde last week. And today I got my fill of what it’s like to see what a PL Super cap and Titan Blob looks like.

So the word came down that we grunts and nubs was to form up for a bit of SBU bashing. So there we are, Bashing away and the next thing I know. We are told to warp off to somewhere and get ready to bridge. Comms start going mad as FC is barking orders to Dictors to start droping bubbles here, There. Everywhere. I Had no clue what the hell he was saying. Then the order was to warp to some pilot name I cant remember and bang. As I land there is a HEL Super Cap ship on grid. We start pounding on it. The local count is rising. My blood is pumping. Last time I got a super cap kill. It was from a “Incursion Live Event”. So the chance to get a real PvP one today was to me a very very nice thing. As we are pounding away. FC is giving orders to pliots with cynos and heavy interdictor and there I am in my poor little Arazu not really able to do much. But now I am excited. The HEL is going into structure and I am as giddy as little school girl. Next thing I see is a new Cyno lights up on the over view and then I see my screen just go mad with stuff dropping in on grid. Here comes the rest of PL with more Titans and Super Caps than my poor little 1920X1200 screen can handle. Don’t ask me the count. I Had no clue. But it was too late for the HEL. He was popped just as Reps started to get on him. FC Start barking more orders for primary targets and things start to melt. But then the Reps came and then that was that. Stand off. We could not kill them. And they could not break us. So comms go silent as the FC is in talks with his intel boffins. And the word comes down that there is a hostile carrier undocked and warping to a belt in our home staging ground 15 or so jumps away. What the Fu** is that doing? There is like 100 friendlies back there and some noob want to lose his carrier? Next thing we are told is “WARP to Bla Bla BLa at 0” (not real name). And there is a Wyvern caught in a bubble. And he was not going anywhere. And with the rest of the PL blob bubbled up else where in the system. We went to town. No help coming for him. Now I am all jigging in my seat as I am hoping and praying for a 2nd Super cap kill. Am I really going to get this lucky? And yes I was. Wyvern was popped and then we went back to see if we could poke PL some more. Again we start pounding away. But the reps they have are just too good. But we keep trying. And then we get lucky. Some poor Thanatos did not get the love it needed in time. And then. It was my time to go. Some nasty damage starts coming my way and my poor fail fit T1 shield tanked Arazu gets it comeuppance. Well I did not mind. It did it’s job of pointing lots of stuff the day before and so had earned it keep. But I am still on comms. And word comes down the line that the carrier in our home system is dead also. That was very odd for most folks to understand. Nobody could work out why it was doing it. Then the little grey cells start working and it dawns on me that maybe it was some sort of distraction. I Have no idea if this is true or not. But it did not matter. The battle had been fought and the day was ours. We took the field and held it. Yes we took some losses. And by going by wreak counts. It looks worstthat it is. By ISK count. Oh boy did we hit it big time. 2bill cost for us and 43bill lost for PL. No matter how you swing it. That a hole lot of ISK.

The funny part of all this is the trolling comments on the killboards. Stuff like fail fit supers and oh look a -A- spy has been suicided. But really? Why would -A- do that? That’s a whole lot of ISK to throw away. And the fact that Pl was repping everything they could tell me something diffident is afoot. Damage and propaganda control maybe? Who knows? I Know I don’t.

So with that. I Am happy. 1 carria’ and 2 Super Cap kills (+ one more back at home). Not a bad day for me and Black Aces Military Academy/En Garde at all.

Also, when was the last time you heard that a Pandemic Legion lost a Super Carrier?

We all kicked PL in the nuts.

We had kadeshi on the battle as well


Battle summery

Soundboard PL

I am not the best battle report writer but I try. (sry for typo’s)

The CTA:
Finally we had a nice timer. Couse this battle started basically the day before when we were blueballed. 1 of the guys in the fleet before the battle spoke and said he knew a pos with a CSAA. Offcaurs the FC was nah not possible or some like that. But they went out to look and YES there was a CSAA and YES it was online. So the fleet moved out to reinforce the pos and we managed to do that. Timer 1 day 3 hours \o/ \o/

I asked the FC to mail me the new CTA form up so it could be send to ally. I waited 30 minutes…. No mail. So I created an ally mail myself as I was Shure we would have a CTA next day for killing the CSAA. Finally a decent timer for kadeshi and announced on time

The day of the Super kills. We started forming in 77s at 19:00 where the actual timer for the pos was 19:52 so we had time enough….. But when it was 19:35 or some the FC spoke be ready guys be READY….. Take bridge take bridge you all know how it would sound when someone is excided we jumped in a system and we needed to warp to a belt? ? WTF

Woot there it was. A real PL hell in the belt cause he warped of from his midpoint to the belt. No he was not ratting. He was on route to the PL blob that was ready to counter us when we wanted to attack the CSAA. Offcaurs it pretty exiting in the beginning where they needed bubbles and such but then it calmed and we stated to hit the Hell. Omg. That was tough. We almost where not able to do enough damage in the beginning to break his shield I looked like. Then the other blues that where close where called in. I even switched to another fleet to give them a cyno. Cause of someone said what fleet I needed to join I was in the wrong fleet meh first time maka bitched at me. Luckily one other FC confirmed that I was indeed told to join that fleet so all was cool. When the other blues where there the hell went slowly down. I believe he tried to self-destruct. But I expect he canceled that because PL doesn’t want to escape by self-destructing.

When the hell died PL jumped in, just a few seconds too late to save the hell. We were trying to shoot other stuff.. Carriers, supers and such. But offcaurs there where already too many….. Then we got the order to warp to a fleet member….. YES \o/ á 2nd SC from PL in a belt. Don’t ask me why. But it was there ready to die. I bet PL thought at that point. Let him die. Stay grouped….. Simply because PL didn’t warp to the field where the wyvern was dying.

When we as fleet killed the wyvern we warped back to the main PL blob… hehe me as well offcaurs was not smart maybe.
In a command ship but I wanted kilzzzz yarrrrr. I was primary and managed to warp of the first time TY logi’s Especially Nils
When I warped back to the field I didn’t even have time to warp out. I was insta primary and died in glory I was not happy I died tho

after I died I warped out and went back to 77s so I dono exactly what happened but as far as I understood. There where so many PL we had not enough to kill anything else so the fleet went home as well. But what about the CSAA….. I dono. Prolly the owners repped the pos and it is still there or not……

I hope you have some idea how it went and how cool it was to actually be there.
For me it was awesome and hope on many more fights like this.
The positive thing on structure grinding is that it gives fights as well.

Dictors bubbled a Pandemic Legion Hel (late-comer in a PL baiting gone wrong) at an asteroid belt in 8EF-58, cyno opened and our 220 man tengu fleet piled into the system. We bubbled up the grid and shoot it for a couple of minutes, which felt a lot longer when you fully expect to get dropped by 30 tracking titans and heavy interdictors. Then, enters the Gypsy Band tengu fleet, and soon, a Solar Maelstrom fleet. The Hel’s tank was good, but he didn’t have a cyno. Taking fire from 150 tengus and 50 maelstroms, he was burned to half armor right as local spiked with the PL supercap fleet, and finished 5 seconds later.

The Pandemic Legion super fleet warps onto the grid and the fight begins. Our tengus burn and orbit the blob at 100km, focusing fire with the Maelstrom’s alpha fire, inflicting an unheard level of dps on the PL carriers, which the mighty supercapital blob was able to remote repair. There were many close calls, but with ECM bursts, the supercapital blob had the upper hand, even saving one carrier from low structure. The supercapital fleet, having literally zero subcap support, were able to hold their ground against our 400 subcaps – a true show of force in this terrible game we play that we overlook too often. We only managed to kill one Thanatos.

A Wyvern disconnects and is probed out and bubbled, and our fleets leave the heavily bubbled hostile super fleet. This time there was no saving the super pilot, as rows of bubbles were put up at range from the super in the direction of the PL super fleet, allowing no possible way to get in. The Wyvern is killed. We go back to engage the super fleet and kill anchored t2 large bubbles they put up (to prevent more disconnected pilots from e-warping). Many fighter bombers perished. Knowing subcap dps was useless, we said GF and left the system.

During this fight, a ratting fit Controlled Chaos Archon was killed in our home system 77S:

Unfortunately for our smugness, PL has made a bigger deal about two dead supers than everyone else in EVE, and they weren’t even killed in the actual fight. But of course, respect to them for trying to come back and save their tackled super in the face of 400 hostiles, despite the price paid for doing it.

Here is a nice album of screens I took during the battle.

– Vik

It’s almost impossible to read these BRs and not feel that the other shoe is about to drop.  With a bit of pod goo on their face, it seems that PL will look for a shot of revenge at their first chance.

    PL goes looking for "GUDFIGHTS" but seem to have forgotten how to pvp with SubCaps. More at 10

    So, PL is south shooting .-A-.
    This is what will happen, -A- loses like, 5-10 systems and then gets them back right after PL gets blueballed and bored to shit. and decides to do something more fun.

    I hope AAA kill more PL supers TBH. It's not even the isk that makes it a big blow to them it's their ego that gets burnt.

        -A- continues to show how patient they are, and how effective picking your fights can be. People may denegrate such strategic thinking with terms like "blue-ball", but that doesnt make if any less smart.

        Smart deployments by AAA, perserve their fighting forces for the times that they can make an impact – and they show the discpline to stick with that strategic thinking. Its hard not to admire.

      5-10 u sir have dranken the coolaide. Tenerfis alone has more then 10 stations (which -a- lost completly for a bit)

      That aside, what does the attempted and failed blue balls have to do with anything? they managed to pick off to 2 pl supers, which i congratulate them for, but there is no way you can attribute this to the actions of decemeber/1st week of January. But hey 2 titans + 2 baby titans I think PL are prolly still pretty happy with themselves.

    I am glad PL looks out for its members and does something when they are dying. If you have not listened to the PL comms during this then you should. It is funny lol

    everyone gets all giddy when PL loses a few supers, but in reality losing 2 supers is a drop in the bucket for most of the major alliances. Its when they lose 4 or 5 on a daily basis or 15 in a major fight is when you know there nose has been bloodied because losing that many IS a major blow to attempt to replace. Losing 1 or 2 isn't a big deal, when the report comes in on those 15 getting killed, then that will be the day to rejoice.

      Its not about the isk value, its about the value of PL being seen as this invincible super cap legion. Its nice when the game's "king makers" get a bit humbled.

    Its (p)funny to see how big PLastic nation cant handle eve anymore.

    Once upon a time u were pvp no1 in eve, than came kartoon and rmt, than u started with wow again, than wot, and bf ,,, etc. Even worse, now u ASK for people to join u, its pathetic.

    Beside that u cant handle simple lowsec fight, screw those "thers nothing to gain there" paradigma, for every fight that PLasticks lost, ther's "GUDFITES" excuse(s). Suck it up, PLastictards, ur not far away from goontards.

    What does it matter if they lost 2 supers lets see if they can pull another 7 dead titans in a single fight. That is news to me

    ohgod AAA are bad. The bleating about this will go on and on and on and on… AAA lost 2 Erebus's (Erebii?) to PL less than 2 months ago, and 2 OOC supercaps to PL less than 3 weeks ago.. not to mention the 100 tengus, countless capitals and the fact that AAA are fighting alongside SOLAR, Gypsey Band and the russian iron fist on their own turf… cut PL some slack tbh. AAA never forget? should be AAA have a selective memory.

    AAA do not field supercaps, lets get this straight. AAA/Solar/Random russians have a TON of supercapitals but never field them. PL have some bollocks to use them when so heavily outnumbered, yet these articles continue to crop up simply because the administrator at en24 hates PL. Fascinating read, but im sure theres 200 more AAA testimonies like this to come.

      PL, NC., Red Alliance, xXDeath can field more supers then AAA and Solar. Not to mention PL being blue to Raiden. Now, where is this threat to the PL supers you mention that makes them have massive balls?

      Tell me, how does one win? You killed two titans, take no sov and RA is the one losing ground so you have to prop them up. Now two leet super craps are dead because you continue to hold up a dead weight alliance. You can hotdrop AAA all day and they keep pushing back against RA. What is the definition of winning? How does one win this southern war?

        to Bear1990: You are correct, those alliances are blue to PL but the way you phrased it suggested all of them were in the same region fighting, that is not the case… NC. is close by but has reset the russians, is not involved in anywhere near as many engagements as PL goes into alone. Look at the battle reports… and i mean from PL's killboard not just 1 of the 20 alliances defending the Solar/AAA block's killboard which shows their kills relative to PL's inaccurately.

        to Dude O. I am not in PL so you're asking me questions I can't answer, however it you look at PL's leaked comms about their purpose of being there.. to make life difficult, kill things and dont care about who is losing space where it seems there is no actual way to beat PL here.. which is why AAA morale chestbeaters capitalise on these sort of things by releasing 200 fraps videos, and considering any structures or ships lost by RA or someone a victory over PL. AAA need that sort of morale boost in a campaign they can't won't win without Solar. Solar are the architects of any AAA success, have you ever witnessed AAA try and do something on their own? I have, I used to be in them (I joined through a public recruitment ad.)

    -A-'s strenth has always been fighting on their terms, not the enemy's. This is why they'll always be around long after other alliances have fallen.

      to be fair they're used to getting owned, so the chance to do kill something is exciting, and oh look another fraps of this fight.. look at the alliances involved and tell me if you still think PL are the ones blobbing the poor russians lol.
