Raiden. & INITDOT launch Crusade on the Scalding Pass Region.

Last week, a joint Raiden. and The Initiative fleet launched a raid on the Scalding Pass region, the first strike was the station at HJ-BCH. The Raiden. fleet, after making short work of the i-Hub and putting the station into reinforced mode, occupied the station’s grid at 0, outnumbered and outgunned.

A 300+ welcoming party lead by Imperial Legion – mostly comprised of drakes and repping carriers the stage was set for a decent block party.

Raiden. focused their firepower on the Drakes. The drake fleet bore the brunt of The Initiative’s bombing run, though the arrival of the Gypsy Tengu fleet on grid forced the Raiden./The Initiative abaddon fleet to disengage and withdraw after suffering heavy losses.

GFs were posted in local. Gypsy Band later dropped a scrub ED archon that was repping the station, after the battle was well over.

Gypsy Band Archon

Since last week’s engagement, Raiden. and The Initiative have obtained control over ARG-3R & N3-JBX, giving Raiden. a foothold in the Scalding Pass region; a threat to it’s current residents, IMPERIAL LEGI0N & THE UNTHINKABLES, among others.

It is still too early to say how this would end, Raiden. and Init seems to go well hand in hand, with Raiden. deploying their super-capital prowess while the Initiative. brings in the sub-capital pain. It is not a secret to anyone the frictions within Imperial Legion leadership, it will be up to them to take this attack as an unifying cause to put their differences aside or a final nail on their sovereign coffins.

I think unfortunately raiden has to reinforce stuff to get a fight out of people and when they do get a fight, the alliance calls everyone they know to defend because they are too scared to stand on their own, and oh yeah everyone wants rdn kills… looks like it was 3000 members (rdn + init + initmercs…) vs (oh lets say 10k to be generous) what else is new…. glad -a- had fun sitting waiting for a fight, try harder to beat up on rdn they hate you enough as is and are def people you want to keep on your bad side…

          The fact Raiden recently got steamrolled by goons and gave up rather then HTFU and kill em means we have less respect for Raiden. Plus that whole ex-DRF thing is going to stink for a while yet. Forming up with INIT. is certainly not going to win Raiden any respect as far as -A- or the rest of the Southern coalitions are concerned.

            AAA's antipathy toward Goonswarm is ancient history by now, surely. Nonetheless, if AAA really want fights, they know where Deklein is. Of course, it's less effort if people come down to the south to fight, but short of mittens deciding he'd prefer to live in Feythabolis again, I don't see that really happening, to be honest.

    This battle report is bad, i believe Gypsy/INK./WHYso. need to start our own propaganda wing.

    We got some yells from IMP.L about a fight that would possibly go down. We showed up for the pew.. with respect to the situation.. we could give a shit about IMP.L..

    I believe WHYso formed up a 6-8 man wing of bombers and eventually got merged to create a combined 34 man bomber fleet composed of; Gypsy/WHYso/GE/Darkspawn. Those guys raised some hell, once Gypsy bridged in the tengu fleet, that bomber wing must have warped in and taken out easily half of the RDN. fleet that was fighting. 5-6 different sets of bombs going off in the middle of that hellcat blob was rediculous.

    As expected IMP.L would die horribly (GJ on that RDN.) and gypsy (who are not blue to IMP.L or its buttbuddies, who kill RDN. then IMP.L)

    RDN. left local complaining about blobs as per the usual, tbh.. i think without the GYPSY/INK.WHYSO support they still would have said it after massacreing IMP.l, either way, very interesting events in the south. From what i hear, cascade had an issue with Init. SBUing a system in detorid.. cant confirm it for sure though.

    The IMPL blob consisted of a whole bunch of etherium reach and scalding pass alliances. they actually managed to rape most of the guardians + a few hellcats while BOTH the RDN Hellcats and Coalition Drakes were being bombed to shit by init, gypsy and darkside. (both the drakes and the hellcats were at 0 ontop of eachother so you can't bomb one without bombing the other)

    The IMPL + Coalition drakes did their job of protecting carriers, dieing horribly and taking out enough hostiles so the station could be saved.

    Cascade were totally independant and just looking to get in on some action.

    I know because I was there. Unlike the "reporter".

    Observe as both Raiden(dot) and Init(dot), mighty and fearsome PVP powerhouses hailed as being amongst the most successful sov-holding alliances in all of history, flail around in the back yard of irrelevancy and hold their heads high as they perform only with a slight degree of competency against special-ed children.

          Pretty much. Solar hasn't gotten involved in geminate, kevavela or etherium to any significant degree. They seem happy to let the small alliances fight it out.

          Not sure if scalding pass is any different.

    So to summarize what I have been reading about the East…

    Goons and Razor are terrorizing IRC and their CSAA (nothing really new there). New alliances in The Kalevala Expanse (Giantsbane, Apocalyptic Legion, Soldiers Of New Eve, Broken Toys and Dark Phoenix Rising) have been fighting new alliances in Etherium Reach (Ethereal Dawn, Persona Non Gratis, Tribal Dragons). But internal issues with alliances and politics leave only Soldiers Of New Eve and Broken Toys with space in Kalevala. Side note: so much for that letter that Dark Phoenix Rising published. The Etherium Reach Alliances has some agreement with Imperial Legion who holds space in Scalding Pass. Scalding Pass is being attacked by Raiden and the Initiative. Gypsy Band and their pets (THE UNTHINKABLES, WHY so Seri0Us , Rebel Alliance of New Eden, and Darkspawn.) that hold space in Wicked Creek and part of Scalding Pass are in it for good fights and not worried about their space. Cascade Imminent seems oblivious to anything and Solar and Against ALL Authorities are just looking to get some super capital kills not really worried about Raiden or Initiative taking any space in their buffer kingdoms. I guess that some bored CFC members (aka mittens thinks they need to prove themselves) Fidelas Constans and soon to join Fatal Ascension have moved east to get some 'Good Fights'. I wonder how those two Technetium rich alliance will effect the east?

    Anything I'm missing?

      That's pretty much it.

      Soldiers of new eve and broken toys absorbed a fair few of the old shortbus coalition – they make up about 2000 pilots now. Brick and blues have consolidated their hold on geminate and are finishing off the last few systems. Haven't seen FA yet but Fidelas have certainly been pretty active and are easily capable of swinging the battle to etherium or kevavela (if they wanted to).

      Some more info on the happenings in ER and TKE.

      Apocalyptic Legion failed at transferring sov over to a different corp and therefore lost all their sov in Kalevala Expanse. Due to this failure (or maybe other reasons), they decided to merge with Soldiers Of New Eve.

      After Dark Pheonic Rising decided to change sides due to being treated 'wrongly' by being given the 'worst' space in ER. They decided to publicaly make a declaration of war, which has only embarrased them. Due to internal issues in the KE coalition, and several resets, DPR could not recieve the assitance they desperately needed to hold onto the sov they have in Etherium Reach and have fled to Kalevala Expanse, so they can recieve easier protection from Soldiers Of New Eve and Broken Toys.

      Gianstbane reset the Kalevala alliances after some riff raff with their leaderships. Giantsbane is losing space in Kalevala, but is gaining the support of Black Legion and NC. to protect their sov in Geminate.

      FCON have decided to 'invade' Etherium Reach, after their deployment was met with massive amounts of blue balling (This is due to timezone differences, whereas the Etherium Reach alliances are mainly US, FCON is mostly European. So, when FCON brought 70-100 man gangs down, the best thing the ER guys could do was form small fleets of 20-40). They claim the invasion is to take all of Etherium Reach, but it's certain FCON is just taking sov to provoke fights.

    Just so we can clear out the facts.

    IMPL Failed to tell their blues in the area that the station hit its first timer. A day prior to it coming out they were informed it was on its second timer. INK/WHYSO not really giving a fuck about the station decided to show up anyway for some pew. A few were in the gypsy bomber fleet. Now for some dumb fuck reason CASCADE decided to engage first and loss horribly on their own. Then INK/WHYSO tier 3 fleet sat a jump or two out waiting for IMPL to sack up. WEll it took them a good amount of time before it happened and when it did…they were fish in a barrel as they naturally are. However I give them props for not trying to warp off like they did in ARG but im sure that some bubbles had to do with it. Meanwhile back at the tier 3 fleet gypsy finally brings in their tengu fleet and whyso/ink appear to enter the system to support and help clean up. What I would like to clear up because for some reason IMPL think they won this fight but instead Gypsy/WhySo/INK saved their asses. WHoever wrote this story should be taken out back and shot for such shitty perception.

  32. RDN grunt

    It is so funny what all you experts know…

    Neither RDN or Init (as far as I can tell for init) want any space in Scalding Pass!!!

    Any sbu like in HJ- is just to lure a fight but unfortunately RDN gets outblobbed 1:3.5 while on top of that solar and -A- wait for RDN supers… RDN was about to drop some well insured suicide dreads just to find out what would happen.

    A RDN guy called Talon Kardee took N3 in Scalding SOLO just to have fun with his corpmates of Endstati0n with travellers of imp legion and such. They killed about 200 for 14 bills and lost 11 for 700 mills in one week. Same with ARG – that was just to start with the fun…

    RDN is in fun mode staging in NPC 0.0 waiting for the day to drop a shitstorm of supers on anyone who fails…

    To remind you: RDN doesnt stand for SOV – RDN defines themselves about the quality of last fleet fight…nothing else!!

      Welcome to being in a smaller coalition. You don't deploy supers in fights as a middling alliance unless you want to lose them.

      Solar probably won't drop on you unless you escalate to supers btw.

        CCP really need to think about this problem. I'm not sure how it can be solved, to be honest. But the fact that we get so few fights where people don't escalate due to fear of what might be coming, is bad. I know it's a MMO, and the more friends you have, the better, etc etc.

        I haven't thought about this at all, so there are probably a thousand major problems with it, but as a thought experiment: what if the amount of mass you can cyno into a given system using the cyno of any one corp was limited within some time duration? (RP mode: a cyno field generator relies on particular subspace harmonic field frequencies or something, and every corp uses some frequency. The ripples in the space time continuum caused by opening a cyno portal and bringing mass through, mean that you can only bring a certain amount of mass into a particular system, until the ripples subside. Or whatever.)

        If an fc knows that the enemy can only bring, say, 5 supers + 20 capitals through a cyno within any given 60 minute period, I think we'd see more (and more interesting) fights.

          The biggest issue with this is that it would put artificial limits in the sandbox. The best thing about the possibility that somebody will counter-drop you is that no matter who you are, there is always a bigger fish.

          1. Dice

            It would be an artificial limit, yes. And I do agree that the "fear of a bigger fish" is a really cool, emergent aspect of EVE, and it would in many ways be a shame to minimise that.

            But at the same time, EVE is full of artificial limits (eg, far in the future, with wet-wired implants and controllable wormholes, and the targetting computers still can't manage to track the positions and velocities of more than a handful of spaceships in the vicinity?) which exist for one reason: to make the game more fun. If the game would be made more fun by introducing another artificial limit or two into the sandbox, I personally wouldn't disagree with the decision.

            Of course, whether it is more fun or not, would probably only be apparent after a fairly large trial on Tranquility itself – and therein lies the problem…

          2. Imigo

            The difference between limiting how many players can jump through a cyno and limiting how many targets a ship/pilot can target is that the former limits how many players can be involved in an event and the latter does not.

            Constraints generally make for interesting choices* (eg I can't simply target them all, so which ships in that hostile fleet will I target), but this is not as true when it involves limiting a player's ability to even be present in a battle, thereby removing their ability to make any choices, interesting or otherwise.

            * One definition of the term "game" (Sid Meier's) is "A series of interesting choices".
