Past week or so the corp and I have been looking forward to an op that was being arranged on a forums. The idea of the op was simple.
- Get as many people online as possible
- Get everyone in either a Gaurdian, or a remote rep battleship, with lots of ECCM.
- Head to Amamake 3-1 and smack until we got blobbed and killed.
The simple plans are always the best plans, and when the day for the op came, we had 16 corpies and 2 friends of corpies in fleet. This was one of the largest gangs we had ever assembled. And even tho our setup was good, and are fits were awesome... nobody really had much more expectations than getting smashed in the top belt and warping back in our pods.
When we got to Amamake the smack began:

It went on for quite a while, and while I could post the entire log, I dont think I could even fit the log on the front page of my blog. But hopefully you get the idea.
Nonetheless, nobody came to fight us, and after about half an hour of sitting in the top belt, we decided to go with PLAN B, which was to head on down to Huola which is a system near Amamake that houses alot of faction war dudes.
When we reached Houla, our 9000 series scout reported that there was a Mega on the gate we was about to jump through. I figuired I'd jump through first and get a point, and then see if the Mega would agress me, or just simply jump through the gate and get caught by the rest of the gang.
He agressed me back.. I called the guys through... and he died in no less than 5 seconds. Meh... a kill is a kill.
We sat in Houla for abit, when a crazy irish guy in local seemed to want to tell us how much he loved River Dance.

I'm not sure exactly why he was telling us this. But I'm sure it had a deep and meaningful message in there somewhere.
Anyway. No fights to be had in Huola either. So we decided to goto plan C.
Plan C was to head to Egghelende, which is also very close to Amamake, and annoy the mighty Ken Plante. We arrived in Sisiede and formed up on the Egghelende gate and decided to send our most annoying and also best smacktard in.
You probably guessed it was Spectre3353.
Spectre3353 and Ken Plante had a relationship a long time ago, but it all went sour when Spectre3353 accidently taped over Kens favourite Kylie Minogue cassette. Ken spent several days listening to the radio and taping each song off the weeks-top-40. And he was very upset by Spectres disregard of his most treasured cassette.
Ever since then Ken has hated Spectre and has tried to kill him at any opportunity. He goes into a fit of pure blind rage and ends up throwing his own ships away, and ships of his corp mates.
So Spectre, being the good Python. Smacked and smacked while sitting on Kens home station. You can read the convo here.
But strangely, Ken didnt bite, he must be finally over Spectre, or his new boyfriend has brought him a proper official Kylie Minouge cassette. That, or he had finally got some anger management therapy, and was practicing some excellent self control.
We saw Kens alt undock, and when we saw him enter Sisiede local we figuired that our trap was busted. He saw our beefy gang, so we decided to give Amamake one last shot.
We turned our ships round, went to Amamake and again sat in the top belt. We then started to smack:

Even Spectre himself thought that maybe our smack was going a little bit to far..
[ 2010.07.04 01:48:11 ] Spectre3353 > please be more professional pythons
[ 2010.07.04 01:48:15 ] Spectre3353 > we are above the smacktalk
Again, the smack went on for a small while and as Spectre was about to tell us to give up:
[ 2010.07.04 01:51:23 ] Spectre3353 > we should just go
[ 2010.07.04 01:51:30 ] Spectre3353 > the longer we sit, the sooner until we get smacked down by a hotdrop
[ 2010.07.04 01:51:32 ] Spectre3353 > and nothign is coming
An Abbadon, two tempests, A Megathron AND a Nidhoggur appeared on close range scan:
[ 2010.07.04 01:51:40 ] Spectre3353 > or not
And it began! It was BANE, Kens alliance and it seemed they meant business.
We primaried the Megathron and someone reported that their Niddy had entered Triage mode. For those of you unaware what Triage mode is, it basically boosts your repping and local tank by a very large amount. It does however make you run out of a cap very fast if you start running everything.
More battleships landed, along with a Falcon. Everybody hate Falcons, even when your running double ECCMs, and everyone was quite relieved when Kobrakilla announced that he just one volleyed it in sniper Maelstrom. Shortly after Ken plante landed in a Armagedden with a full rack of nuets.
I told everyone to primary the Megathron. The Carrier began repping it and we simply could not break its tank. BANE were primarying Golden Helmet, but they also couldn't break our rep train. We were at somewhat of a stalemate but we had a slight advantage. Our Gaurdians wouldn't run out of cap, but the Carrier would.
I told everyone to switch primary to the Carrier... so that he had to turn on his local tank, thus wasting even more cap. We pounded it for a while, and being in triage he managed to tank all of us quite easily... that is... till he ran out of a cap a few minutes later.
I told everyone to switch primary again, back the Megathron and this time he went down fast. We switched primary to a Hurricane, who died before I could even lock it. Then to Kenny in the Gedden. Kenny melted like a Freddo in your back pocket on a hot day and already this gang was happy. Killing Ken Plante is our favourite past time.
We killed a few more ships, and we all began approaching their carrier to make sure it didn't get out of range. With the Carrier capped out and their dps ships dropping, BANE decided to call it a day and get the hell out of the belt. So off they ran like little bitches leaving us to finish of their capped out Carrier.
As it died there was an eruption of FUCK YEAS on comms, and we set about scooping as much loot as we could. I warped my alt in to collect the Capital mods from the Carrier wreck, but one of the BANE guys in a sniper ship destroyed the wreck.
I decided right then to call it. We had just beat a group of "Pro-pvpers" and not took a single loss in a pretty evenly matched fight. It was probably the best fight I've ever been in. You cant really tell from the engagement on the killboard, as we took zero losses, but BANE had 12 guys including a triage carrier, where as we had 19 with just BS/BC/Gaurdian support.
They had seen exactly what they had, and had formed a fleet specifically to kill us. The Falcon with mostly Amarr jammers to jam the Gaurdians, the neut Geddon to break our cap transfer chain, and the Triage carrier to negate our ECM and keep his fleet alive long enough to break our RR chain.
But they still got rolled!
After I returned home and docked up for the night I recieved a mail from Griznatle. You may remember him from a previous post:
Sent: 2010.07.04 06:12
To: Andrea Skye,

Also, I wanna be honest with you. This game, its pixels, I might treat you guys like crap, and you treat me like scum, but you guys did a good job out there and yes im a bad pvper but i can still tell that you ate your wheaties and got it done.
Till next time your in local

Props to Bane for bringing the fight tho, and well done Pythons for actually pulling your shit together for a change.
