Operation Etherium Reach-Around

Not often does one see AAA’s coalition, The Cluster-fuck Coalition (CFC), and tons of random people from all over New Eden cooperating spontaneously.

Tonight, something magical happened in Etherium Reach. In AAA, we will forever remember this day fondly as “Operation Etherium Reach-Around.” It will come as a shock to no one that this name was chosen by eccentric Maverick Navy CEO Avicenna Sarfaraz.

At the outset, let me tip my hat to Mukk Barovian, Perseus Kallistratos, Makalu Zarya, and James Kordent. These four FCs really pulled a rabbit out of a hat tonight, in more ways than one.

Things started off with a relatively small-scale conflict between the DRF and AAA/Nulli in LXQ2-T, with XxDeathXx forming a dread and carrier fleet to kill a Stain Empire POS that was coming out of reinforced mode.

XxdeathXx added two titans to their POS-killing fleet, something that caused AAA spies to raise an eyebrow. Presumably, the XxDeathxX FC was eager to add more muscle to their rather unimpressive fleet of about a dozen carriers, half a dozen dreads, and a small support fleet hitting the Stain Empire PoS.

An Avatar and Erebus were on field when AAA showed up solo, with only 60 sub-caps, but the Avatar cyno’d out at the first sign of trouble. The Erebus was not so fortunate. Once he was tackled by AAA’s Oracle gang, Nulli rushed to support their allies with a swiftly-traveling Naga fleet.

XxDeathXx and Controlled Chaos warped in some additional carriers to repair the imperiled titan, but a very smart order by the AAA FC team lead to the placement of defensive bubbles that caused the carriers to land outside of repair range. This allowed a relatively small battle-cruiser fleet to wear down a titan with minimal interference by hostile remote repair.

The Erebus exploded too quickly for PL or NCdot to arrive. This was due in part to the fact that he was not fully tank fit. Approximately one minute after the titan died, the pro-DRF mercenaries showed up to save the day — or so they thought.

PL and NCdot had around 30 supers on the initial jump-in, with no support to speak of on field. This might seem like hubris to some, but PL’s reputation is often enough to protect them from serious challenges to their super-cap fleet.

Tonight, AAA decided NOT to leave the field when hostile supers landed. Instead, a small number of dictors did their best to hold down PL and NCdot super-caps, while calls for help went out across New Eden.

Some of the first AAA pilots on-field burned to a nearby low-system to trade their current ships for additional DICs and HICs. There was a tense atmosphere, but everyone realized the potential for something special to unfold here. Everyone moved with a sense of urgency.

At one point, PL and NCdot were able to free up the majority of their super-cap fleet. They took this chance to warp out. However, a well-timed bubble by AAA FC James Kordent caught a single Aeon seconds before it entered warp.

To their credit, PL and NCdot decided to come back for their stranded comrade, but this decision would eventually cost them dearly. From the moment that the XxDeathXx titan was tackled, forces across the galaxy had been massing.

Reinforcements from every AAA ally were on the way, not to mention the hordes of neutral alliances who just wanted a chance to appear on the kill-mails.

It took some rather dynamic bubbling by AAA dictors to keep the supers bubbled. In particular, MVN FCs James Kordent and Perseus Kallistratos pulled off some impressive feats in the domain of interdiction. Together they used a combined 160 bubbles before help arrived.

Our brave dictor pilots nearly died on multiple occasions. The AAA, Nulli, and  CONDI logistics pilots deserve a huge amount of credit for saving them both repeatedly.

When I personally landed on-field in my Heretic, along with other reinforcements, the situation was still in flux. No one knew for sure which neutrals were going to help PL and which had come merely to pile-on the tackled supers.

Neutrals from dozens of alliances were showing up. Many were bombing the field indiscriminately. TEST’s tornado fleet was firing at both sides of the conflict, while most of the other Clusterfuck members seemed to be focusing primarily on PL and NCdot (though by no means exclusively so).

However, despite the chaos. NCdot and PL supers were now completely covered in bubbles, and they started dieing one-by-one. They deserve recognition for choosing to go down fighting instead of initiating self-destruct. PL and NCdot have a good tradition in this respect, and I wish more people would follow their example until CCP fixes the mechanic so that a kill-mail is produced.

There was only one other moment where PL and NCdot had a chance to escape. The grid was badly contorted, and their supers were able to cross from one grid to another. We spotted this phenomenon early, and had dictors on both grids to prevent any escape.

This is what the end result looked like from my perspective in the AAA fleet.

Some are pointing to this battle a great example of the weakness of an unsupported super-capital fleet. In my opinion, the fact there there were no PL or NCdot titans on field to blap things was a major factor. Even without titans, the super-carriers nearly escaped on multiple occasions.

Super carriers were already neutered to an extent when they lost the ability to launch anything other than fighters or bombers, but titans remain very capable of killing support ships. Perhaps the lesson from the battle in LXQ2-T is that titans are what are imbalanced right now, not super carriers.

In any case, it’s food for thought, and I’m sure CCP is taking everything that happens on Tranquility into account when working on future balancing. If Titan tracking does get a nerf, fights like this – where a small sub-cap fleet holds down many supers until help can arrive – might be far more common.

In any case, this victory comes on the heel of PL losing 2 other super carriers to AAA, and morale among the Southern bloc is improving at a time when XxDeathxX and RA are both holding high-level meetings about the future of their coalition.

Ultimately, super-capitals can be replaced, especially by rich alliances like PL and NCdot. What can’t be paid for is the psychological impact of a super-capital being destroyed. Whether or not this harms the DRF, PL, or NCdot – it will definitely positively impact on everyone else involved.

      Finally AAA after all the whinning, running and hidding in empire 00, learned from the goons that they can take on a super fleet. I have been saying it all along and have been cock bloked by whining AAA scrubs. Too bad it took AAA like 10 months for the truth to sink in XD

            Super Carriers have trouble fighting smaller hull classes, such as the ones in that battle. A dozen titans would have shredded the fleet fielded against those caps.

            … where? I've seen many, many, many battle reports. Any time a large number of titans are fielded, subcaps are slaughtered. The very few times this isn't the case are when both sides are able to field their supercap fleets. Such a fight requires both sides to have prepared and planned and be willing to drop supers on the field. Since the logoffski nerf, that very rarely happens.

            A few months ago i posted like 4 examples. Cant find them now. You do know that another 10 months down the line we will see more of this again but with titans. I love to see whats gonna be the excuse then. Maybe the excuse will be you will be wearing your lucky knikers then 😉 ! But as we blow pass the knikrs jk, in the future i will be there to point the its not "possible to take down super cap fleet" out for you.

          12. Trapped

            30 shouldn't, and couldn't even if the titan couldn't ever hit them. 200 should be able to tho, but can't. Fit the titan being primaried for tank, get carrier reps on it, and its untouchable, while the other 10 refit for tracking and pick off anything and everything that might be a threat. Change primaries, they refit off each other and the new primary becomes a space brick, soaking up all the damage and laughing, while the old one refits back to tracking fit.

            You do know capitals can refit off each other in the middle of a battle, right?

            I'm a bit curious about this because while I've seen reports of titans shredding Drakes and the like I haven't seen them do that to a tier 3 BC fleet which is both what we saw here in numbers and they're better suited to avoiding titan fire. I suspect that this might just be me missing the appropriate subcaps get slaughtered fight but if not then there might be some room for the tier 3s to survive… sorta, though even then they may be too fragile to take advantage of that.

            February 29, 2012 at 6:34 pm
          15. bagehi

            It is harder to do with the tier 3 armor tanked ships. They can run them like an aHAC and titans shouldn't be able to hit them if they can get in close enough. Would have been interesting to see how AAA would have fared if PL had brought the titans.

            it works with a small amount of titans, but when you have a blob that the north is capable of fielding you will have a lot of titans at a lot of different rangers, not possible to stay that close to all of them.

          19. The Observer

            armor tanked tier 3 battlecruisers are still just as easy to hit. They naturally have a larger sig radius, and the slownes of armor tanks makes it that much easier.

            tl;dr – just as easy to shred as drakes.

      In response to Scrubby McPubbie VIP list:

      Thanks for all the support from all other alliances who helped down the super caps.

      To clarify though -A- killed the titan with no help using only 37 oracles, not to mention the great execution of logistics and dictor tactics to keep everyone alive and prevent the enemy fleet from trying to rep the titan, and keeping all enemy cap logi support at range. Same applies to the three dreads that were downed in the process.

      -A- also held the entire supercap fleet bubbled for a very long and painful time, fighting off sub-cap support fleets and supercap dps in the process while waiting for everyone else to come.

      Victory goes to -A-, cudos and credit goes to everyone else.

    It was an awesome fight. Heard about it in YA0, headed immediately for the JB systems and burned across empire to get there. Got on 4 of the mails, and bailed for a safe as the last one was about to blow before somebody in MVN decided to try and apply the golden phallus to my itty bitty drake.

    I kept hearing on coms about how Nulli was shooting us and how TEST jerks were shooting everyone (my guess is that these were spies trying to use disinformation to keep the supers alive) and such, but in the end 1 dead titan, 6 dead supers, and I went to bed happy.

    Hey -A- you are still down 2 Lamb bus's – that where killed under an -A- jammer. So take of the party hat, and field a real cap fleet next time (yeah right, like -A- will use super for anything else then ratting) in even odds. Brawl manno-a-manno with PL. You are worse than Goons, atleast they dare to welp a dreadfleet onto Raiden. titans.

      If PL/NCdot wants to support dead weight thats their business, if they want to keep welping supers to keep alive what should have died weeks ago, again thats their business. None of this changes whats going to happen in the southern war. Its sad that RA and xDeath could not even muster a token subcap fleet to support their PL/NCdot bros.

      This could have turned out very differently if RA and xDeath still had some capacity to field fleets, but they don't anymore. Keep dropping cap fleets to hit POSes with -A- fleets nearby, it will surely turn out well like it did this time.

      well one of the posters above me called the cfc a bunch of glorified km whores without any impact. And while indeed the cfc are km whores, that they had no impact is false.

      but yes, -A- gets the majority of credit

    Nice one -A- I have always had way more respect for you guys than PL you cant even have a sub cap brawl with PL anymore without them adding a shit ton of supers. I used to respect NC. aswell because you could have small fleet fights with NC. and they wouldnt add supers to the fight, now they do it far more often there turning into PL mark 2.

    -A- have rarely ever done this when we have engaged them they play the game for fun and having nice brawls playing the game the way it should be played. Hopefully now PL and NC. will think twice before dropping 30 supers on a medium sized fleet just because they can

    While the majority of the work was done by -A-, Goons deserves some credit if for nothing else than helping to deter PL/NCdot from using more supers to bail out these 6 trapped moms. I have no doubt that Goons entering the fight factored into their decision not to drop a dozen tracking titans.

    I'd also like to point out that there was ZERO lag throughout the fight even with brackets and 0% tidi. Cudos to CCP on that one.

      perhaps next time the Goons should wait until a dozen tracking titans land on grid before entering the battle.

      No no, you are wrong. I will tell you the secret about how -a- Combat leadership works.

      1. PK sucks balls and types smack in local,
      2. James writes the propaganda, and forumwarriors everywhere
      3. Maka rages on comms and flames people that fly in failfit ships,
      4. Mukk counts lemmings on DO NOT JUMP commands and charms people into flying CS

      All -a- pilots are actually part of the collective -a- hive mind, a skynetlike system that functions for 80% of all involved pilots in a fleet while 20% just fuck around because of bad brainwave service.

      Dont tell anyone else, it will put so many spies out of work.

    Who really care?!

    PL/NC have plenty of allies in the east too (Raiden, XIX, RA etc), at least we are not making lame excuses.

    At the end of the day, a lot of people came because they wanted to whore supercap mails and for their united love of PL and NC.

    Maybe if NC. didn't spend their days welping and hot dropping WTF fleets that are on their side there might of been a stronger subcapital support.

    Was there i arrived a bit late but field was covered in a sea of bubbles at that point.

    Props up to all involved was a good mesh of nearly everyone in the world vs PL/NC supers. Props up to PL/NC super pilots who chose to die honourably then take the self destruct route.
    Finally Props up to Avi for the comedy on TS. Etherium Reach-Around is pretty slick 😛

    This is a question for all those involved in the fight, from both sides, with no regard to the fight but with regard to ccp's new time dilation.
    How did you find the experience? was it at all laggy or in comparison with previous large scale fights like that of hed and 46dp horrendously laggy.

    Did ccp finally provide what they advertised?

    Also I would like to say though I may be a friend of -A- but I would like to thank those super pilots who took part for not self destructing, and for going down fighting with honor. I hope we get more fights like this where supers aren't hidden in the cupboard or self destruct at the slightest knock.
