A Fidelas Constans, Get Off Oy lawn and SpaceMonkey’s Alliance fleet, heavy on Tier 3 battlecruisers and recon support, was destroyed by a Verge of Collapse T3 fleet in W-4FA9 (Branch).

Verge of Collapse, who (you will remember) won the last Alliance Tournament, scouted LAWN’s Oracle fleet (which was 50Km from a gate and with bubbles set up) in the system owned by Fidelas Constans, and decided to jump on them despite being aware of the 50-60 hostile pilots docked.

Once they engaged, FCON and SMA jumped in range as well, making it a 34

against 110

with the following results:

According to the battle report, Verge of Collapsed suffered 7 losses (3 ships and 4 capsules) while the combined forces of Fidelas Constans, Get Off Oy lawn and SpaceMonkey’s Alliance saw 91 of their ships and 22 capsules destroyed. The final ISK results are partially padded by the price of the T3 ships which form the core of [CRIT]’s doctrine.

According to Verge of Collapse’s WarGod, SMA was very close to downing several of their Guardians, but their expensive fits (700 to 800 million per hull) might have been a deciding factor in the outcome. For the Guardians themselves it definitely was, as none was destroyed, thanks also to the quickness with which the E-war against them was disposed of.

WarGod also mentioned a few mistakes from their side. Namely, bringing that Curse, one of the Lokis (which apparently asked on Team Speak but didn’t broadcast for reps) and the fleet bonus ship which was allegedly left on the gate instead of a safe spot.

        It was a joke, a great one, it just went right over your head whats funny about is CFC pilots by.and large think shootimg structures is PvP, more often then not if you roam CFC space they won't undock, if they do they will only do so if they have three or four times you numbers. My last roam in CFC space was 5 dudes in t1 crusers, and they litterlly droped 40 dudes on us, the time before that we had about 15 BC's, and they droped 120 dudes on us, o/c both times we were nano, and they didn't manage to get one kill. But this is by and large how things go down in CFC space, they are cowards, and won't fight you unless they have three or four times your numbers. I have old corp mates thats are CFC, and when you ask them why they don't fight, they say more often then not that they didn't have an FC, for a coalition of 40k they sure have a shortage of FC's, considering my corp of 80 dudes has 15-20 guys that will step up and FC

        Scar, We need you to pipe down. Not because you're wrong, but because eventually the CFC might "get it". CFC doctrine ships are our bread and butter. They pay for our sabers, they pay for our PLEX. The drop on a tier-3 BC is close to 40m, and I'd rather not lose the laughably easy kills and constant income that they provide to us.

        Thank you for your consideration and understanding.

        1. Andres Talas

          Lithia,

          The CFC has very deliberately gone for a policy based around being able to throw massive numbers of pilots at an objective – for example, last night, BL. threw ~60 pilots in ~60bn worth of ships at an objective. CFC threw about 550 pilots in ~100bn of ships at the same objective. BL. backed down.

          If the CFC undocked to fight VoC/BL./whoever gangs in ~400m ships, we'd still lose more than half the time – and our average loss per fight would be greater.

          That said, welping the occasional 100 man HD gang in ~1.5b worth of ships is something that less than a days worth of ratting taxes in Branch covers, so this kind of occasional predation doesnt threaten the CFC at all (a quick check on Dotlan will show there are several systems that create ~1bn a day in ratting taxes).

          January 4, 2013 at 2:46 am Reply
          1. Lithia Tsanov

            I might agree, but I don't think you fully understand the damage a guerrilla does. Currently, we want you to rat, we want you rich, because we want our targets to be as fat as possible when we kill them. The moment an alliance sponsors a guerrilla team, we're all in trouble. The empire ceases to exist. Null becomes dangerous again. Badops is a shining example of just how badly Goons understand guerrilla ops.

            January 4, 2013 at 9:08 pm
          2. Andres Talas

            Lithia,

            Not at all.

            Fundamentally, nullsec entities get their income from three sources – ratting taxes, moon minerals and PI taxes.

            If an area is being predated on, sensible people eother (a) start ratting in groups, in semi-PvP ships, meaning solo ganking doesnt work, and the guerillas need to concentrate to defeat them, making things less efficient, (b) start watching local and intel channels and docking up, or (c) start ratting in more defensible areas (ie pipes).

            Stupid people lose shiny ships, yes … but those ratting machariels were never going on PvP ops anyway.

            TLDR : Fields and Farms isnt here. Kill the moons, not the ratters.

            January 6, 2013 at 1:49 am
          3. Guy

            Like Andres has said a lot of those really expensive ratting ships are flown by people who never join fleets. As for the fleet fit ships the pilots will generally have 4 bil or whatever and could afford more than a dozen maelstroms before they run out. Even then they don't lose any money on fleet ships.

            If you wanted to be effective you would need to shut down a lot of ratting systems at the same time whilst having bubble camps on multiple systems for more than 12 hours a day. Even then the CFC alliances would still be able to pay out endless fleet re-imbursements because of the sheer number of moons they own. Still, if you can gather together a few hundred pilots like PIZZA has then you certainly could do damage.

            If you mattered that much they would start looking at ways to fix the problem. Not saying that there's anything wrong with what you do. It seems like a fun and cool way to play the game although ultimately it isn't having an effect on the CFC war machine.

            January 6, 2013 at 4:41 am
        2. Guy

          You know I wish people like you did actually impact big alliances. But I think you might be getting ahead of yourself or at least not understanding the CFC leadership's perspective. For something like the CFC, as an organisation, losing a bunch of ships to a cloaky sabre+falcon alts or whatever just doesn't matter. The thing that's far more important to them is getting their pilots into the right ships with the right fits.

          Most CFC players are very casual and if you let them do whatever they like then you'll end up with fits vomited out from whatever people had in their hangars at the time. What matters to the leadership is having easily re-imbursable, standardised doctrines for fights between 150+ people.

          The CFC often having outdated doctrines and sub-par FC's is another issue and on that one I'd agree that they need to do a lot of work.

            I don't think you quite grasp what he's stating. His argument seems to be that these kills provide easy income for him.

            I don't see any statement as to whether it effects the member's alliance strength or integrity. I'd recommend not having such a knee-jerk reaction to such statements.
