So was rifter night for the RvB – Ganked Night. A RvB pilot bring us the exclusive from the hard-lands:

The RvB – Ganked Night – Rifters take down CVA dread + subcap support.

The majority of the fleet was forming a conga in Mista (Domain), while us flashy red folk waited next door in Kheram.

Then, one of my -5.0 and below brethren undocked and said on comms:

“Uh, guys… I’ve got like 15 dreads on scan”.

Our FC,Mangala, told him to check it out, and he finds a CVA dread fleet with a small amount of subcap support in the form of a few abaddons, a domi, a typhoon, some guards, and various other subcaps.

Momentarily after he lands, the POS goes RF’d, so Mangala decides to leeroy the gang in, as the dreadnaughts are beginning to leave siege and align out. So the majority of the fleet lands while (unfortunately) passing most of the other dreads in warp, but when we land, we hit their sub-capital fleet and tackle a Phoenix and Revelation (the Phoenix somehow got away, vOv) ,but we decide to instead wipe the subcaps while keeping the revelation pointed,the subcaps pretty much melted under our leet dps of 90 or so rifter hulls and we then turn to our good friend in the revelation. He soons sieges, presumably under the hope to preserve his tank and spam “jump to” as soon as he comes out of siege.

Well, he didn’t leave siege.

After that, we actually begin the roam and kill many terrible bombers and just general retards in Providence, and we then find ourselves in Delve, and happen upon Sniggwaffe SBU’ing/reinforcing a system, in which we helped them wipe the floor of Nemesis. Was an excellent night, and had multiple good fights. Shout out to all involved, espescially Thecla Elarik for getting us the warp in on the dreads.

Mangala for FC’ing this roam, and CVA for provided us with many lols.

– Kellen

From what I’ve heard CVA and friends were Reinforcing POS towers, and 2 Dread pilots showed up late to the party and decided to enter seige anyways making them exit later then the rest of the caps. After everyone exited they jumped back out, leaving these two star players alone on the field. Then they decided to go back in saving 1 Dread and losing the other to like 74 frigs along with a ton of Battleship losses.

          RVB isn't completely pro, no. but CVA should have known better than to keep their dreads unprotected. It was a pubbie mistake. Don't be one dimensional. Its bad form.

        There's no such thing as battlecomms during ganked. It's a drunken roam with themed ships with the goal of getting everyone killed in a glorious fire. That's all there is too it. 😛

      was like their 10th try and pretty much the only time they killed any of us. just check rvbganked killboard to see how many bombers they lost. they tried it on pretty much every gate/jump and most of the time didnt kill ansone but just lost their bombers.

      We may have lost a Dread and BS support fleet, to some shitfit frigs, as well as a few fail BC/Hictor camps in R3, but we did bomb some rifters eventually, and we only lost 9 waves to get there.

    Was in the CVA fleet, one of the dreadnaughts got a disconnect and thus didnt get out the other was just plain terrible,

      Disconnect would have ewarped him out as quick as he woulda warped out by hand. He was dead either way.

      3. CVA Grunt

        When he disconnected all dreads were still in siege as well as him therefore not warping out. Siege ended (he was the pilot that was not late) and the rest of the fleet warped out while he was loggin back in (FC call). Therefore by the time he logged back in he was engulfed in the frig swarm and couldnt do anything about it.

        So yes disconnect is a valid reason to this happening. The phoenix pilot was the fail that entered siege late.

          Also, you forgot the aggro timers. Still have aggro? NO E-WARP FOR YOU!

          1. CVA Grunt

            Yes hence why he was still there. Also the FC fleet warped everyone out and the phoenix pilot was bouncing off shields but wasnt smart enough to just warp off to a different celestial instead he just sat there bouncing off the shields with the fleet warp.

            February 27, 2012 at 5:38 pm
          2. Anon

            With aggro you still e-warp. You just don't disappear. Which makes you vulnerable to being scanned down and then killed at the warp destination. Points will still prevent the ewarp however.

    To all you guys being critical of rvb gank roams, the "noobs", the lack of tactics, the fact they die every week etc etc etc you really don't get it do you. That's the whole idea!! Take delicate ships into high risk areas in hopefully large numbers and take on overwhelming odd with the firm intent of dying horribly. (In short it's a chance for almost any pilot in eve to get away from you over-serious guys and enjoy the GAME they paid to play.
    Mangala, you Thecla (scanning aside), Jaimmez, adw and all of you other guys who turn up for us every week for us thanks for bringing comedy, lunacy and just real fun back to a game which a very large minority take way too seriously and I was ready to quit until I found this release valve,

        We were very happy to see that rvb decided to help us out when they came in. 50 tackle to help out our 20 alpha was great for moping up the remaining parts of the nemesis gang. was too bad that rvb wasnt around for the cap blob that nemesis dropped on our pos after they left
