An Aeon class super-carrier went down today at the Tannakan solar system of The Bleak Lands region. The Aeon was piloted by DeaD Mopo3, member of

Battle Report

Tara Read sent us the following Battle Report:

Alright, here’s the report of the aeon kill earlier today.

First got the report in militia chat, someone said “aeon on scan, drones in space.” That perked our interest and we quickly burned a bomber cyno alt there, we also burned a scanner alt there to scan him down. We realized with the 4-5 dreads we had on at the moment, and no ghostriding hics, we needed to call someone. Jeronica scanned through his list of contacts and saw Constantine. [HORN] on and sent them a convo. While in convo with him, we see him leave local and scan, (we did not probe him down yet, as we needed more ships/hics). We burned alts to the nearby cynos on the starmap to see where he went. Jeronica used this time to burn his main back to our home system and hop into a ghostrider (was in a cheetah at the time), as we now had a scanner.

After a very quick search, we found him 2j away. We set it up for our first of 3 attempts to get him. Jeronica warps in, and gets in position and lights the cyno as well as the ghostride in (Constantine. wasn’t in range yet), and we try to burn through the aeon before he got in shields. Sadly, he was able to get in, our only bumping ship had to warp due to aggro. Jer losees his broadsword:, and reshipped to his nidhoggur and jumped back to our home system.

We set it up again, this time trying to bring more bumping ships (Jeronica again brought a panther: A combination of a bad cyno and jumpin spots had one of our moros’s bump the aeon into shields.

At this point, Constantine. was in convo with the aeon pilot saying he wanted to kill us and to try to bait us out again. Because of this, we swapped some fleets and was stuck in between fleets with no e-cyno ready when our triage ended. Jeronica did another cycle and tanked longer and was able to secure a cyno out.

At this point, we shadow cartel exhausted all our cyno alts/hics we had at the moment and decided to stop provoking the fight. Constantine. then said that they had the aeon in their fleet, in a warpable position. A few minutes go by, we get ourselves ready again and wait for them to fleet warp him. After a little while, we hear that aeon was in warp to a belt. I get an invite to the fleet, invite all our people and we go in and the ganking ensues. We kill the aeon without a hitch, loot the wreck and disperse with Constantine. about 50/50.

Whole op took about 1.5 hours from initial intel coming in, to it dying

A special thanks to Constantine. for the brilliant baiting and for the guys in SC who stayed up late for this! ^_^

Another BR

Also thanks to Andrejs for pointing out his account of the battle at FHC:

Right so after returning from vacation I whipped HORNS back into action and got some decent kills.

1. Suicide ganked 30bil ish Tengu in highsec ( Based on Jita Prices) props to Hellgate for this kill his got suicide ganking down to a science, its always fun to tag along with him.

2. Get intel on Aeon derping in space, get dudes together to kill it, then get chat invite from Jeronica ( Shadow Cartel ) , They have cyno alts already in position so they go for it, aeon gets back inside pos shield fail. Aeon derps in and out a few times nothing much happens, Shadow cartel cyno home. I chat Aeon, turns out his Russian, I try to communicate to him for some time with a lot of simple words and a lot of goggle translate happens …..Anyway cut through all the bullshit and 30minutes of derping he is in the pos shield approaching the tower, I fleet him > gang warp him to a belt his sort of aligned to.

Alt army is a go

>Send in 2 ghostriders
>Get point
>Everything else comes in
>I Fleet Jeronica in a squad command position so he can get his duders in to get on the mail
>Aeon brings in proteus, only having 2 hics (1 of them jammed at the time I keep Andrejs on field pointing aeon, my hic dies – other hic fine – his aeon dies then his alt proteus dies.

      Except we almost did it ourselves. Sadly there were only like 5 of us online so made it a little difficult. Thanks again to Constantine for the help. Also this BR was written by Jeronica.

      I only tweaked it slightly so credit needs to go to him ^_^

        Ignore the bitching, Horns do things very differently, this is why we can’t have blues because of how malicious our members are!

          Lol. Regardless it was a pleasure and the baiting made the kill all the more sweeter. Hopefully we can hunt together again in the future o7

    What in the name of Hesus is that Aeon fit in your picture? Although the fit was bad, it wasn’t bad in that way. Your screenshot has stuff like turrets in highs (wut), plates in lows, and shield extenders in mids… The real fit is in eve-kill (and it’s bad as promised).

    Heres how this really went.

    1.aeon is scanned down and jumps before SC can light the cyno
    2.SC gives up, a suggestion is made to check the map
    3. SC warp to the aeon and proceed to bump it back into the pos
    4.SC loses a panther somehow
    5.Andrejs convinces the aeon to come out of the pos, it gets 10k off but having lost their only bumping ship SC let’s it drift back to the pos
    6.Andrejs fleet warps the aeon to a belt, horns drop HICs and dreads
    7.SC whores on the km with an enyo
    8.SC scoop loot and peace out

    Thanks for baiting for us Shadow Cartel

      We actually had a cyno in place just not a HIC and we never “gave” up. I made the suggestion to check the map for exit cyno’s in which we found him. The first two attempts you guys weren’t even in place and on the second attempt we had him into Armor.

      Had one of our Dreads not landed on him in a stroke of bad luck and knocked him into the pos shields Jeronica would have had him bumped and off. We already had him 3/4 armor by the time he was in the pos.

      Again. A great bait job by you guys nabbing the kill but please don’t be a cock about trying to diminish peoples roles in the kill. Give credit where it’s due and stop being assmad because we got one of your titans in the past.

      Just be happy we ALL got in on a great kill. I swear to god ego’s in this game sometimes…

    2. I fail to see how my report left out any of the points you made above. I also gave Andrej the majority of the loot, because you guys were already complaining about loot split while I was still on your teamspeak. If getting 80% of the loot would shut you guys up, I would be okay with that. Apparently not, lol.

        As much as they hate to admit it, either side would have failed to kill the Aeon individually. Us due to lack of tackle and people, [HORN] due to us even giving them the intel to begin with and their late arrival into the fray.

        In the end it comes down to TEAMWORK. So for the love of space christ will people stop measuring their space dicks and be happy we got a kill? I for one am quite content.

    Shouldn’t a battle report require some sort of battle ? This was just a cheap awox style gank.
