As some of you may note I am personally involved in this battle on the side of The Retirement Club and would like to add that it was great fun and look forward to being part of something like this again.

I have included accounts from either side below to ensure a clear view of the events which took place though unfortunately Gentlemen’s Agreement did not comment on the matter.

LordDragonMPS account

LordDragonMPS of Shiva, The Retirement Club:

On Friday 1st March a tower belonging to The Retirement Club (401k) was reinforced by Gentlemen’s Agreement and friends in the US TZ, but thankfully the owning corporation, Shiva, was able to set the tower to come out in roughly 17 hours when an operation had already been planned.

Which meant that on Saturday at 21:00 Eve time 401k and allies formed up with a substantial tech 3 fleet comprised of arty loki’s and logistics plus support formed up with the hope of getting a large engagement vs Gentlemen’s Agreement and their allies.

However seeing the hostile groups going for some of our other towers in Venal we thought that we would most likely end up being blue-balled and likely be able to repair the POS unopposed. So the call was made to jump in a chimera to begin repairing the POS and to reship some of our pilots from tech 3’s into scimitars to assist.

Thankfully Gentlemen’s Agreement did in fact light a cyno into system and onto the POS (thanks to them for bringing a fight), in a blaster rokh fleet, so we quickly called the reship of the scimitars and warped the rest of the fleet into them at 0 and began calling targets. As we began the engagement a Legion of xXDEATHXx cyno lit on grid and they came in with an artillery maelstrom fleet which quickly began targeting our logistics putting us under pressure. So the decision was made to light our cyno and bring in our triage carriers of FraXy of Lost Obsession and Berakhvar of Drunk ‘n’ Disorderly to assist with the logistics issues we were having due to the high alpha of the hostile fleet.

As our reps began to stabilize we quickly managed to dominate the fight and  remove most of the hostile rokh fleet of Gentlemen’s Agreement forcing them off grid and leaving us to gather warp in locations for the remaining Legion of xXDEATHXx maelstroms until they had lost the critical amount of numbers that they too stood down.

I just want to say thank you to both hostile entities for the fight and we hope to have the same again in the future!

UAxDEATH’s Account

UAxDEATH of The xDEATHx squadron, Legion of xXDEATHXx:

We had a report of a 100 man fleet in Ohkunen in bridge range of our titan so we started to assemble a fleet which would allow us to kill it (which we tried to accomplish ASAP though due to our lack of recent engagements it took longer than expected). As we began to gather on the jump bridge we  received information from our scout that Gentlemen’s Agreement had already began engaging the hostiles, so we realized we had no time left for preparation and jumped as we was rushing to assist our friends.

Due to this need to rush we ended up in the wrong position in closer range to the hostile fleet than preferred as we had no time to do proper maneuvering so began engaging the enemy logistics. At first we had success in this until 401k brought in some triage carriers to improve their chances of surviving our alpha. As they began to stabilize Gentlemen’s Agreement took heavy losses which caused them to leave field leaving us engaging them alone, as we were informed that Gents would regroup and hopefully come to reinforce us once again. By the time we were informed that no one was coming to assist us it was too late to “warp away” so we stayed and fought as much as we could knowing that our maelstroms were not equipped to deal with the close range tech 3’s.

We would like to thank our new neighbours for bringing the fight and look forward to fighting them again in the future. Here is the battle report from our perspective:

    hum yes very skilled T3 gang makes short work of BS fleet at that range
    and im not sure why they did not go to work on the carrier when the the mail fleet came in 100 of them should kill a carrier fast and would of meant they might brake the logi.

        It was funny as hell when the CFC scrubs thought it would be a good idea to blob blap dreads and Phoenix's on a AHAC gang as there Subcaps were once again being raped. Ofc this did not help them,only made the situation more funny.
        They only saved their worthless skins when they blobbed there supers to bail them out.

    Only 10 billion lost by XIX? Heh, someones fudging the numbers. IIRC it was much higher then that. Try 20billion plus

    wow, those losses don't make any sense.

    I Don't know how much your Maelstroms are worth, but seeing the deaths on the picture, XLX and GA losses should be higher than 1.5B

      You notice all the tech 3 cruisers that got popped right? Those tend to be more expensive than maelstroms

      Its the other way round, XIX and GA killed 1.5B, 401K and friends killed 10B. I still think the numbers are a bit off though; I would have estimated the value of seven T3s to be more than 1.5B. Methinks maybe eve kill doesn't count the value of the subsystems properly.

    So many people miss this but if you have heavy neuts on the field (or even enough mediums) carriers DIE fast and hard once they drop into triage… They're not going to get reps. Their own 20K + burst tank will end quickly esp when neuted. They're not going to move… The only logic for NOT killing them is they're not actually DPSing themselves. HOWEVER if you can't kill hostile DPS because of enemy carrier logi… lol. IDK if that was the situation here – I was NOT there but it still goes missed all the time. People let PL get away with it frequently – and PL does because they know they can – and they're silly space-rich…

    Tempests with Autos rule in this particular role though I'd agree they're big juicy targets themselves.

        Damage control for a fight we won? Sure bro.

        The XIX killboard doesn't show the rokh slaughter. I assume gents losses don't get posted there.

    No wonder the losses for XIX and gents were so big, the pilot in this video illustrates it easily. Two fleets, allies both setup for medium to long range combat go heads up with a low sig armohac/t3 gang trying to kill them at point blank range.

    Both fleets shoulda moved at least 60 apart so that least 1 fleet always has targets at a nice range where you overcome the tracking issues with close range.

      It's cfc pets we are talking about here, they can't scratch there own arse let alone run a compitant fleet.

      On another note its strangely nice seeing 401k with healthy numbers in fleet again.

          I'm not sure what's more funny, that the person above you is british and slaughters his own language in typical fashion, or knowing that you spent extra time proof-reading your single sentence to make sure you had proper capitalization, apostrophes and punctuation: just to make sure no one would correct your language after you corrected his.

          Haha Scrub is a name though, so you should probably have capitalized that too ;).

            Whats funny is how much effort you went to making up excuses for the dismal American education system.

    Well it was a very fun fleet (even if we welped it badly).

    from my perspective (Gents) we just lacked the counter to the Carriers on field.

    and the big losses for Legion is because they didn't warp off when we did but it was a slaughter and more fight is sure to come from this *fun fun*
