I had put this piece along the Erebus kill, some suggested it deserved a thread for its own.

Fatal Ascension Wyvern Loss

We had promised this one, so here it is.

Intelligence provided to Psychotic Tendencies revealed a possible Fatal Ascension assault on a Planetary Customs office in EF-F36. After a short form up of a fleet from Syndicate and surrounding regions, Psychotic Tendencies and assorted allies prepared to fight against a Fatal Ascension Drake fleet with carrier support on both sides.

Upon getting a scout into system, it was stated that Fatal Ascension had a Wyvern, piloted by SKS HOLOCAUST, which was on field approximately 100 kilometers from the customs office, with minimal support on grid.

The scout prepared to get into range, noting that Fatal Ascension had approximately 80 pilots in system, for support but that none of the sub-capital ships were undocked. At the call, the scout lit the beacon for Psychotic Tendencies to jump to, and Heavy Interdictors locked down the Wyvern. At this point Psychotic Tendencies began to shoot the Wyvern, which had immediately activated the self-destruct sequence upon the lighting of the beacon.

After the mandatory 120 seconds, the self-destruct sequence completed

(2:10:48 Notify Wyvern belonging to SKS HOLOCAUST self-destructs)

Resulting in the destruction of the Wyvern with a ship scanner reporting the following fit included.

After the destruction of SKS HOLOCAUST’s escape pod, http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=13695927, multiple Fatal Ascension pilots warped to grid, to be caught in the interdiction bubbles, and subsequently destroyed.

According to estimates, the total loss for Fatal Ascension sits at around 120 billion isk in losses since moving into Syndicate, after the ~25 billion isk in ship and fittings on the Wyvern.

Psychotic Tendencies suffered only the loss of the cynosural pilot, resulting in a loss of around 75 million isk with the escape pod and implants.

Well, Fatal Ascension continuing to prove that they’re awesome.

So we know that the Custom Offices in EF- are coming out shortly, and our sources also tell us that they aren’t organised and any fleet would be about eighty strong with Drakes and a couple random Carriers. We do what any self-respecting party would do and call everyone. So in around forty-five minutes, we form up around eighty vessels from Black Rise, Metropolis, Sinq Laison, Syndicate and Solitude. We then sit nearby and wait for something to happen. Our scout reports that the sub-cap fleet has not undocked and that instead a trio of random Carriers and a handful of random support have began to hit the Office. A Wyvern then warps to the POCO at one hundred, again, we do what any sensible person would do and light a cyno on it, dropping a burnished brass and gold kitchen sink on it.

It begins to self destruct the instant it gets tackled. We think this is just bait to get us to drop Dreads and Supers and decline to, fully expecting the Wyvern to light it’s cyno and drop us. At 88% shields, he self destructs. The ninety to one hundred friendly pilots in system have not even undocked to try to save him. 02:10:48 Notify Wyvern belonging to SKS HOLOCAUST self-destructs.

What. The. Fuck. http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=13695927

TL;DR – FA Wyvern tackled on POCO in staging system with around 100 friendlies in local. FW/Low-Sec/Syndicate all gang up and hit it in the face with the kitchen sink. It dies.

Including the Wyvern loss and all Capital self-destructs Fatal Ascension have now lost roughly 100-120 Billion ISK in Syndicate. The moons that they are currently confirmed to have taken make roughly 6 Billion ISK in profit a month. At that rate, Fatal Ascension will take just over a year to replace losses on their new acquisitions. Nice one.

WELCOME TO SYNDICATE. Many thanks to all of our brosefs for making this possible.
EDIT – And a video to go along with it.

OTHER EDIT – At time of edit, there are two remixes of Kesha songs playing out FA on our forums.

  1. Welpsuper best super

    There was no planned "POCOSHOOT", it was just a douchbag with a super shooting a Poco with another douchebag in a legion (who also died).
    The 100 or so dudes in local were either asleep or ship spinning when the super pilot asked for help….pings went out and shit started to get organised. Triage carriers and a BS fleet.

    Then the super pilot said calmly in TS3 – "Don't worry about it I SD'ed" or something like that…..and stated that he had no shields and cap left…..now we've all seen the vid…so everyone is left thinking (alliance mates included) – WTF were you thinking?

      If you see local spike and some dude comes into your channel saying his super is tackled at a POCO in the system you're all sitting in, how long does it take to grab an FC, undock, and warp to POCO?

        If losing a super is the definition of "shit pet alliance', then I guess PL is the worst shit pet alliance ever. Right? Right?

          No, but using one without at least some basic precautions is. We're not talking here about someone who is a pro-super pilot that fishes for high value targets like freighters or Rorquals or whatever, cynoes in, ganks fast and GTFOes in 5 min. Even those people can be baited and counterdropped, but the fact that they do stuff fast and have emergency GTFO cynos ready in case they get attacked allows them to minimize the risks. This guy was shooting a POCO. Let me repeat that, he was shooting a POCO. An extremely low value target in NPC nullsec where anyone can drop you. Now, using supers to shoot POCOs in itself is not a problem, but at least do it in the safety of your own space, in empty systems. Don't do it in NPC nullsec on your own, with minimal or nonexistent support.

          However, the 'shit pet alliance' part does not come from the fact that this guy is a retard and therefore he was rightfully relieved from his super. You can have retards in every alliance (although good alliances try to weed them our), even in PL (like that PL guy that lost his Hell IIRC, the one that we had that soundcloud clip where Garth was raging on him about having a Nomad implant set). No, the 'shit pet alliance' part comes from the fact that you (I'm assuming you're FA) couldn't organize a fleet to free your super of bubbles with 80 people in local. Let me repeat that. YOU HAD 80 PEOPLE IN LOCAL. See, that's the 'shit pet alliance' part that I was talking about.

          Wha? You mean an alliance that has its roots in being nullsec carebears is going to have trouble having to mine the rings instead of passively collecting tech?

          You sir, are a moron. Tech nerf is only gonna really hurt the elite pvp tech holding alliances who refuse to do things like mining because it is below them. Those of us who actually do have the ability to mine are just gonna spend our time making isk by doing that instead of shooting red crosses.

    Confirming we accidentally the whole thing. Also, about his cap. We had around ten fully neut Abbadons on him, not even counting the utility neuts from Megathrons, Geddons, Dominx's…So while he might not have been out of shields, he was defenitely out of cap and his tank just entered freefall.

    You can actually see the steep damage increase in the video, it was extremely obvious when his hardeners had shut off. It's not likely a support fleet would have saved him, especially not considering that we could alpha the cap off incoming Carriers. However, he was aligned at full speed when the cyno went up..

    Also, blap.

    We also "greet" Fatal Ascension in the entrance to Syndicate from Orvolle. So far the only mildly expensive thing they've lost is a BlackOps, and the rest has been trash. And worse with each passing day, so we are assuming they've got orders concerning this.

    Since last 18th June we've been at war against them, just because it seemed like a good idea to try and hit on those who tried to enter or exit Syndicate through the "obvious" entrance.

    So far, 38-0. They don't seem to share intel at all, as 30 seconds after a FA pilot gets podded, another one falls for exactly the same. Like Lemmings, one after the other, for a couple of days already.
    http://www.iberians.org/kb/?a=cc_detail&ctr_i

    Also, we do this because the amount of trash talking in Local skyrockets when some of their pilots are in. Endless nonsense, insults and accusations of being terrible at EvE, which is pure comedy when it comes from a pilot that lost his ship to you for not using scouts or intel.

    Yeah, Like Daniel was saying… The Wyvern pilot was fully aligned… We didn't expect to catch him because he just had to hit warp while we jumped hic/dics in.

    Also… Look ma' I'm in the news again <3
