Finally! We have moved towards an achievable goal of producing capital ships for the Alliance. Our very first investments get us enough capital to invest in some Capital Ship Component BPOs.
Revelation produced by TGIND, it was a proud moment to know it would later go on to take down a few RED POS.
Mica points out that the latest fixes by the POS engineers somehow makes it such that the Titans won’t be able to penetrate the shields of a POS! This of course sets him off on tech guys and their silly mistakes that cost hard-earned ISK.
A rather interesting new Industrial Command Ship – Orca is introduced to allow for greater hauling in the mining belts. A corp mate decides to pick up a BPO to see what opportunities it can bring the corp.
While I have been keeping busy with mining and also dabbling in Invention of tech 2 modules, Mica got into a real interesting situation with Titans and getting himself blown up in the process.
When a blue alliance recently lost control of a border system to AAA, the nearby blue alliances decided to attempt a joint fleet rescue and try to wrestle back control. This resulted in a fleet that lasted several hours from the form up at ERVK-P for the Sylph Fleet to the final jump into F9E-KX.
Amarr Titan – Avatar
Of course, this is just the first titan Mica witnessed, there’s still 2 more to go that night and not all would be friendly.
Sniper Fleet in warp
After a failed attempt to bridge the blue fleet into the battlefield, conventional ships had to take the long way into F9E which included an agonizing jump into a well-laid large bubble trap all over the star gate.
Wreckage after a Double Doomsday
Mica miraculously survived the trap and made it safely into the shields of a blue POS. Things didn’t turn out so well due to a technical glitch in POS mechanisms that allowed Doomsday weapon effects to penetrate the POS shields resulting in a huge loss that day for the blues. AAA cynoed in two titans, an Erebus and a Leviathon, and sets off a Double Doomsday that obliterates the blue fleet in the POS. It would be the first time Mica lost his Megathron fitted for sniper duty.
