With the final station timer set to come out at 18:30 eve time, Provi-Block formed up early, killing off a SBU in G-5EN2. G-5EN2 is the first system in the pipe from Assah (Insidious Empire’s staging system) to 9UY4-H (the current battlefield for both sides) perhaps Insidious Empire hoped that while Provi-Block was focused on the battlefield in 9UY4-H they could capture the system en route or maybe they thought they could distract Provi-Block from 9UY4-H if only temporarily and capture the station, nevertheless Provi-Block killed off the SBU and so the temporary assault on G-5EN2 quickly ended.

After successfully killing off the SBU in G-5EN2 with no opposition Provi-Block headed back to 9UY4-H and began killing off the SBU’s in system before Insidious Empire had fully formed up. As the Hit-points slowly drop off from the SBU’s local began rapidly climbing. As local began filling with reds, Provi-Block got ready to fight for the final station timer against whoever came. Oddly enough it was Darkness of Despair who had jumped in, in a 250man Typhoon fleet, fearing the worse the Provi-Block Battlecruiser Sentry fleet began aligning back to their POS. Reports came in of the Darkness of Despair Typhoon fleet attacking the SBU on the ZQ-Z3Y gate. Continuing their assault on the SBU at their gate the Provi-Block members began to wonder amongst themselves why Stainwagon, who just a few weeks earlier had taken the ERVK-P system off them, would help them? Earlier this summer while The Dinner Squadron was busy fighting the Stainwagon the two sides developed some bad blood between them, eager to see Insidious Empire’s plans come crashing down they opted to help Provi-Block out for the night.

The 2 SBU’s fell almost simultaneously under the combined might of the Stainwagon and Provi-Block forces. Insidious Empire now fully formed up in a Moa fleet with Scimitar support numbering around 130 bridged into system and began aligning to the Provi-Block fleet. But before they warped their main fleet there, they had a treat in store for Provi-Block. 20 Ravens, fully fitted with Smartbombs warped onto the Provi-Block in a attempt to re-create the legendary tales of the Rooks and Kings pipe bombing runs. Unfortunately though Insidious Empire did not ask tips from Rooks and Kings and so their Pipebombing run failed miserably. They managed to kill off an interdictor or two but that was about it, at the cost of a Raven. As the Provi-Block fleet warped off, Insidious Empire put up a few last second bubbles, catching about 1/7th of the Provi-Block fleet. They quickly dispatched the stragglers and prepared to engage Darkness of Despair.

It was at this Point Northern Coalition., Nulli Secunda and Against all Authorities all entered system. Against all Authorities in their tengus warped to Darkness of Despair to deliver their shipment of Vodka and assist in the incoming battle. Northern Coalition. had come in ishtars with Nulli secunda in hurricanes, as they warped onto the Stainwagon forces Provi-Block warped their fleet onto the N3 forces and thus the brawl began. Against all Authorities began targeting Northern Coalition.’s ishtars while Darkness of Despair and Provi-Block began to wipe Nulli secunda off the field. Nulli secunda’s hurricanes began popping left right and centre and so they quickly had to warp off field or lose their entire fleet, they chose the first option.

It was at this point the fight got a little confusing. In recent months we have seen Legion of xXDEATHXx territory in the north being handed over to alliances such as Hard Alliance, Red alliance and No Value they had decided to group in and bring Mallers and other cruisers to the fight. They arrived on the battlefield and began targeting Darkness of Despair typhoons. This rag tag group of mallers while very resilient lacked the dps needed to break the typhoons tank and so they were quickly forced off field, loosing some of their fleet while at it. A Red alliance-bombing run now set their sites on the typhoons and began their run but Darkness of Despair Microjump drived out sustaining little injuries in the process. Black legion then decided to say priviet to the Darkness of Despair forces by un-cloaking their bombers and attempting to send them home, the bomb run did little damage though and the logistics from Darkness of Despair were quick to repair up the damage.

Provi-Block began taking heavy damage from the ishtars at this point and so were forced off field. As Northern Coalition continued to Brawl with Darkness of Despair they began bleeding ships rapidly. Provi-Block hearing about this from their temporary buddies warped back onto field and began engaging Northern Coalition. Northern Coalition. then burned off from the Darkness of Despair fleet and began trying to engage the Provi-Block forces without the Russians intervening. Provi-Block now reduced to few logistic ships began to lose ships rapidly and so were forced off field again, leaving behind 1/5th of their remaining fleet who were quickly killed off. Pandemic legion Bridged into system at this point, with the same fleet they had been using the previous nights except this night they brought logistic ships instead of their usual RR setup. As Pandemic legion warped onto the I-HUB and began pushing it down to its 2nd timer (providence had repped it fully 2 days ago, Insidious empire had forced it to its 1st timer a day ago) after realising they were structure grinding instead of getting involved in the pvp pandemic legion quickly left the I-HUB and warped onto the battlefield and began engaging the Against all Authorities tengus. The Insidious empire smart bombing gang warped onto the Darkness of Despair ships attempting to take them out, but yet again they failed miserably at it. Darkness of Despair simply Microjump drived out if it. A provi-block bomb run then attempted to take out the Against all authorities tengus (darkness of despair was helping provi-block, Against all authorities was not), they did not bubble the tengu flock though and so they simply flew off.

Nulli secunda now licking their wounds at the station encountered a devastating bomb run from Red alliance, killing off the majority of their remaining fleet and forcing them to head home, heads held low. Provi-Block decided to wait until the Stainwagon forces and the remaining N3 forces killed each other a little more before they got involved and so they waited in F-YH5B (Provi-Block’s Staging system, and only a Jump Bridge away) for a chance to pounce on any stragglers they could. Darkspawn proceeded to warp onto the Stainwagon camp in a Cerebus fleet of around 100. They engaged the Stainwagon forces but unable to match the combined numbers of Darkness of Despair and Against all Authorities they were forced off field. Northern Coalition. trying to save anything they could warp off at this point and so the Stainwagon forces were left alone to loot the battlefield. Pandemic legion decided their 50man tengu fleet would be unable to make a significant dent to the Stainwagon forces and so they headed home, after accomplishing very little. Insidious Empire camped the 4B-NQN gate, killing off any stragglers attempting to leave the system. Provi-Block attempted a bomb run onto them but they warped off before the bombs impacted. As the Stainwagon forces began to gate camp the H6-CX8 gate and remove the SBU from that gate the Insidious Empire Smartbombing gang landed on them. The Stainwagon forces were grouped on the H6-CX8 gate and so must of seemed like a juicy target to the Insidious Empire smartbombing gang. As they landed they bubbled up and manage to catch the entire Stainwagon fleet in their bubbles. As they activated their Smartbombs a realisation hit them, you cannot smart bomb within 5km of a gate (ask Rooks and kings for advice before attempting a smart bombing run next time) they were quickly killed off and the Stainwagon forces got back to destroying the SBU.

Provi-Block decided the enemy forces were pretty worn out by this point and so they jumped through the Jump bridge into 9UY4-H, right into the jaws of Northern Coalition. trap. Just as they jumped through a 20man Northern Coalition. bomber squadron de-cloaked and launched their Shrapnel bombs directly at the blob of sentry battlecruisers. They bagged a few kills and forced the entire fleet down to low armour, delaying the Provi-Block fleet doing anything for a few minutes. Red alliance now re supplied with bombs warped back onto the Stainwagon forces and bombed them, grabbing a few kills but not forcing them off field. Insidious Empire gave up their gate camp at this point and realising they could do something more useful in a system with a vulnerable station in its final timer decide to go hit the station. As they engaged the station, Provi-Block got to work on another SBU in system while the Stainwagon forces also work on another SBU in system. As Provi-Block continued to wear down the SBU, a Noir. Lead bomb run hit them, causing no casualties but a lot of damage. Insidious Empire decided that a station in 20% armour with no more reinforcement cycles was boring and so they warped off to camp the Jump bridge from F-Y cutting off any reinforcements to the Provi-Block forces. As a Provi-Block Cyno went up (someone was trying to move a jump freighter in the middle of all this) Provi-Block bombers land on the Cyno quickly bombing it down, another group of Provi-Block bombers then also landed on the Cyno bombing away the 1st set of Provi-Block bombers.

As Insidious Empire warped around system looking for any stragglers or targets of opportunity they landed in a drag bubble, darkspawn is quick to warp in and engage them but ultimately Insidious Empire managed to escape and warped off field. As Provi-Block finished up killing the SBU the Insidious Empire fleet warped on top of them and engaged them. What happened next can only be described as slaughter. Over the course of the next few minutes Provi-Block killed all of the Insidious empire fleet (numbering around 80 moas, 10 scimis and some support ships) while only losing a handful of Cruisers and 1 or 2 battlecruisers. The Stainwagon forces finished off their SBU and headed home, without the Stainwagon’s support I am doubtful if Provi-Block would have been able to win this night and would of most likely lost a station that has not only has a tactical importance to Providence but a historical one too. With the battle now over Provi-Block warped to the station and began to rep it up from 20% armour to 26% shield. Meanwhile their Combat ships removed any remaining SBU’s in system. As they finished off killing an SBU and headed back to station a Cyno went up in system, Pandemic legion had formed up a 35man Proteus fleet with Onerios support. They bridged in and began attacking the Provi-Block fleet. The Proteus’s were heavily tanked but Provi-Block managed to kill off 13 Proteus’s before they warped off field, this reckless attack cost Pandemic legion around 10billion isk while only costing Provi-Block around 280m isk, A decisive victory for Provi-Block.

Provi-Block then droped a dozen Archons onto field to rep up the armour, Insidious Empire hearing of this quickly formed up a Brutix fleet. As the Archons docked up and a lonely Nidhoggur undocked to rep up the shield a Re-shipped Insidious Empire Brutix fleet warped onto the station, removing any logistic ships they saw and forcing the combat ships off field. They landed a tackle on the Nidhoggur which was 60km from station and so unable to dock up. They proceeded to kill off the Nidhoggur before warping around system looking for a fight. Provi-Block reshipped in F-Y and prepared to push out Insidious Empire. As they jumped through the Jump Bridge, the Insidious Empire fleet warped onto them. As the brawl began Insidious Empire targeted whatever was closest while Provi-Block went for the Scimitars of Insidious Empire, with all of their logistic dead Insidious Empire warped off field and headed home. Provi-Block then stood down for the evening,

Provi-Block managed to rep the station back up to shield, effectively resetting the attackers progress and they managed to rep up the I-HUB. Tonight was certainly a big win for Provi-Block. Now the question seems to be if Noir/Insidious Empire/Sound will continue their pursuit of 9UY4-H or if they will instead head home, heads held low in defeat.

      Goonswarm has had a humble little camp next to provi staging system for a while, which is netting them frequent kills from people that are in a hurry trying to get through. Goons also had a number of very effective bombruns in 9UY itself. Other than that I have to say I have not seem them involved much

          But nobody wants it, seriously, it’s terrible bad space. It’s a logistical nightmare, your line members suffer because the ratting isn’t all that good, everyone who’s wanting to move suffers because most of it is a pipe with few branches to single route pockets. You’re sandwiched between 2 entities at all times, WH pimps gank all of the time because it sees a huge amount of WH activity. Last but not least, you’re far away from a good fight, take a look at the space around it, the only targets are renters, or CFC, neither bring a good fight (cfc because they’re not interested).

      now thats BS, Emp has no desire to “brawl”/Fight. They are looking for curb stomp pure and simple. If the numbers are even close emp is batphoning for help or not engaging. Well tbh very similar to NC (except NC brought their own personal batphone). Emp wanting a fight or fights is laughable. If you want a fight durring eu tz go roaming southern provi in a bc gang you will get a fight, or go around north provi in a cruiser gang later in the day. Its not that difficult to get a fight. Now if you are looking to curb stomp well not as easy then you have to do things like SBU, Bat phone, hire people and so forth. Ah well whatever. BTW there were over 100 emp in assah who did absolutly nothing while the G-5 SBU went down. Fairly close numbers tbh and yet they didn’t seem to “want” a fight.

      Yeah sure keep rfing JBs, dropping SBUs, POS’, rfing our station and ihub because you only want a fight…wait a minute, doesn’t that sound a little like you’re trying to take the sov?

      Why don’t you try just bringing out a fleet and maybe shooting a pos a little then waiting on a gate, we always come either way, so why feed SOUND/Noir’s ridiculous “provi is stale and needs a freeport” venture? I understand if you’re getting frustrated ~04:00 Eve Time but you have to realise we’re EU prime for pvp, not US.

      Well you’re atleast not dropping caps along with daddy PL, but i think the fact that you’d get dropped by every other entity that’s currently looking at provi is more of a reason not to than “we only want fights”.

      Actually, I’m surprised how well it is written. I was there and I didn’t have a “clue” what is going on 😛 😛 It is a very interesting piece to read – it gives me a big picture from the outside POV.

      With so many entities fighting each other, with 1500+ in local, no clue what reds have in their plan… bare in mind that everyone else was red to us – having multiple fleets not driven by one command on our side also caused “friendly” fire mistakes.

      Cudos to the author to get all this info together… sure we can’t expect everything is accurate, but you can leave the comment here stating your facts if something is totally wrong. :)

    I have to say you guys are having some great fun in provi. I don’t remember when I saw such a mess on battlefield last time. Mostly it’s coalition vs coalition but there you have everyone vs everyone. That’s how eve should really look for me to be honest. I imagine a hard times FCs of any fleet had trying to understand who to shoot and who not. It must be something “Shoot whatever is in range” approach there. :)

    It was mentioned how the author of these battle reports likes to put Provi-block forces in sub par to the rest of the entities – when ever Provi-block moves around the field, they ran, when someone else moves around is a tactical move. :)

    Certainly Provi-block is not the best, far from this, but we are trying to do our best – bear in mind, we are not the highly trained group of fighting pilots, but rather consisting of pilots with a limited skill points, etc. We don’t have a luxury to change doctrine ships like others might do and field them on the battle field in short order.

    For this one in the BR “Provi-Block decided to wait until the Stainwagon forces and the
    remaining N3 forces killed each other a little more before they got
    involved and so they waited in F-YH5B…”. If you don’t know, sentry based ships need drones to do their job – what’s the point being on the field if you can’t do damage? We went back to reship and to get drones – not to mention, that we got out of drones lol I can’t imagine how many drones were destroyed in these days. :)

    Thank you Stain for helping us and to other entities out there – it’s absolutely true that Provi-block would not be able to hold the ground alone – how can that be otherwise I ask? Providence is the entity for itself, we don’t have bounds with other powers in EVE. We don’t care what’s going on around in other regions, but we like NRDS and Provi. We don’t have any desires in other regions and we want to stay as an independent entity. That’s why everyone likes to come down here to punch us in the kidney from time to time, but that’s alright we all have fun.

    In my personal opinion, I would love to see Provi even more in small gang pvp style – large fights are highly tactically interesting – but for pilots, small gang fights are much more fun (and without tidi). 😛 :) For example, having “insta” canes on field with tidi and try to bomb run them – you get blap results. hehe

    TLDR: thanks to everyone involved for making the content, it is really fun. Being in game until 2am and starting to go to work at 6am is tiring – but if it wouldn’t be fun, I wouldn’t do it. 😛

This is open call to everyone, who loves to have a great fun, not based on the sov wars, come to provi, we always like to have pvp fun and we will put a fight as many times as we can in short amount of time. U don’t need a sov war to have fun, come to us, we will gladly have fun with everyone, even if we loose the fight, gfs will be given and try to do it again tomorrow 😀
      Also tnx to -DD- and the rest of the Stain wagon guys that helpped us in some battles, not to leave BL guys also, u were awsome too. o/

        Well, you did take the field after days of unlucky breaks. You lot deserve a pat on the back, especially for some great fighting.

      For this one in the BR “Provi-Block decided to wait until the Stainwagon forces and the
      remaining N3 forces killed each other a little more before they got
      involved and so they waited in F-YH5B…”

      This was the stated strategy of the Provi FC at the start of each CTA, so yeah it’s pretty accurate.

      You are fighting “elite” pvpr’s so you are seen as a lesser entity.
      Dont worry tough they die like fly’s like any other alliance.

      We have seen that in Fountain when we fought in the wrong doctrines and had a 50/60% winrate as CFC, <—that carebear alliance that is suposed to have died in fountain according to Vince the almighty and Progodlegend of the elite N3 Coalition.
      Once we flew the right ships they all left Test to their fate as we have all seen :)

      They dint stand a chanse in that war.

      Provi-Block gained much respect not only for showing up but kicking ass and show that you are more then capable of fighting against any other alliance out there with good and fantastic fc's.
      +10 for Provi-Block, just keep showing up for fleets and dont let 1 victory think you won the war and let your guard down.
      Your FC's need to be on the ball every second and learn from every mistake made.

      This is a great way for FC's to get used to fighting the best FC's in the game and get the most expierence ever posible.

    Funtastic fight. Many groups of neuts and all shades of red, but not a single blue – haven’t seen this kind of battle for a long time, if ever.

    “In recent months we have seen Legion of xXDEATHXx territory in the north being handed over to alliances such as Hard Alliance, Red alliance and No Value they had decided to group in and bring Mallers and other cruisers to the fight.”

    From this phrase it may seem like it was Hard, Red, and No Value fleet, but in fact we were together with xxDEATHxx guys. The rest seems correct, except for the “were quickly forced off field” part. Define “quickly” in 10% TiDi. For me it seemed like forever.

    great br, one minor addition:

    on the way home, dd fleet got pipebombed by RnK… sadly for them, and luckily for us, there was tidi. minimal losses.

    Other than the many inaccuracies, this is a better write up than the last 3 from a being balanced perspective. You might want to consider a course in creative writing though. You seem to get confused regarding tense.

  19. Just another provi

    Some of the inaccuracies i can see in the big brawl bit is that Provi fought off the ishtars first, then the hurricanes came in, we fought those of too. Then the ravens entered the battle royale and then reasons unknown to me atleast, we in provi warped out(perhaps to restock on drones?) at that time some reinforcement who were warping in got caught because of arriving late due to tidi and got killed while the main fleet restocked. I was in a tornado, which i lost when we entered 9uy again to that excellent bombing run that was done on the jb, well done. *tips hat*

    Reading up on all of this Provi stuff almost makes me want to come out of EVE retirement….
    Sounds like what my ideal ‘EVE’ was all about is actually still out there.
