More tales from the whiskey hole.
Seems that 100AB Tengu (w/ links) +1 Purifier is fun
Before I begin, hats off to Sergeant RL3. I have a lot to learn from you, and would like to thank you for allowing me to fly and learn form your experience Your PvP in your 100AB is a pleasure to watch and participate in.
So Serg calls me in SCBW local one day, and ask Chessur- you live in worm hole right? Is there anyone that I can come over and fuck up? I say yes and before you know it, Serg shows up in worm hole space, and joins me in the underworld of eve.
The holies of 308 are rather annoying. Like most pseudo holie PvP players they like to sit on the hole at 0. However this doesn't work so well when there is a 100AB tengu that is very very good at bumping.
Our first victim was an onyx that enjoyed sitting on the hole at 0 with bubble up. I guess he was not too concerned when serg jumped in, flew off the hole to 40K turned around and started to scream right at him. Him not jumping through the hole during those precious seconds, spelled his death.
During the onyx fight (who is now trapped 20K off the hole) a drake and hyperion decide to show up and crash the party. Sadly, neither of them can break the tengu or my tank (yes i said tank). I grabbed point on the onyx while serg blasted over to the drake, pointed web, and proceeded to rape it.
At this point the battle was getting too intense for the hyperion (it had not hit one of us) and it jumped out of the hole. I was discussing how this corp had dropped a thanny on me before (yes just 1 recon and a purifier can make them drop carriers...) When the hole shimmered, and out popped the hyperion. Returning from the POS was another onyx. So we engaged again. Hyperion was sitting on 0 off the hole, and was doing nothing- onyx had warped in at 30K away. I grabbed point while serg tried to bump the hyperion off the hole. Then the shit hit the fan.
We had a thanatos drop in out of warp, 30K off the hole and 20K from me. I was worried that it would have heavy neuts, so i burned out of range, while serg immediately dropped his bumping game on the hyperion and took a point on the thanatos. I took a wide 55K orbit and started lobbing torps at the onyx yet again. We were ever so slowly breaking it's tank. In the mean time me and serg were going through all of our intel channels to try and get some support to come and drop this thanny. The thanny started a triage cycle (WTF?) so me and serge tried in vain to dorp the onyx. We were biting down the shield, when another holie member warped to the hole at 50K in his scorpion.
Skirmish links are amazing. I overloaded my prop, burned at him and overloaded my point. Once he was pinned, serg and I had a combined DPS to pop that scorp before it even had a jam cycle off.
As a final insult, I took the pod as well.
At this point things were getting a little interesting. We had a triage thanny, and an onyx. I had not planned on this rather extended and heavily tanked fighting. We were 3 Jumps out to HEK, so with the tengu holding a comfortable point on the Thanny (onyx really doing nothing) i took out off out of the hole, to grab more repair paste, torps, and ammo for serg. On the way to Hek serg decided that he had to pee, so while orbiting the thanatos, walked to the bathroom, and then came back. Only a man with true cahones attempts something so brash.
On the way back to the worm hole 1 Jump out to be exact- the unthinkable happened... Serg was jammed.
THE FUCKING ONYX HAD JAMMERS ON IT
Apparently ever since it landed it had been trying to jam out the tengu, and finally got off a single cycle. The thanatos was hot aligned, and insta warped back to the pos to lick it's wounds. After this ass whipping, the holies didn't want to play any more, and they logged out. So me and serg took off through another worm hole to Nul sec.
Acting as scout serg and I shot around some of the populated systems until something decided to come and fight us. In the mena time, serg sniped a munin burning off a gate.
After that things started getting intense. Russians showed up with a Mach, 2 nano drake, 2 nano cane to fight off serg and I. Our first engagement was rather shaky. Serg had to warp off in 75% armor after the mach shattered his tengu tank.We had thought the day was lost, until I grabbed a warp in on a cane sitting off the gate.
I called out to serge and he punched his tengu into warp. I uncloaked- overheated my point, prop, torps. I was about half way through his shield when serg dropped out of warp 20K of him, and proceeded to quickly drop his ass.
Just as we were chewing up the last of the canes HP, the rest of his nano gang landed. Let me tell you seeing a mach, drake, drake, cane land about 17K off your bomber is a scary sight indeed. Thankfully the cane was just exploding... so with his lock off I insta cloaked and warped off to safety with serg.
The next day it seemed that serg had a good enough time flying with me, that he decided to log of in hole, and join me in the morning. The day started off slow...
But started to heat up, once a tengu dropped out of warp to witness the destruction of his industrial friend. i guess this tengu didn't understand that not having a prop mod, and landing 20K from the hole is a bad idea. Serg and I engaged him instantly. Half way through the fight, the enemy tengu realized that he was not breaking serg's tank... so he primed me. To bad for him, his tengu couldn't crack my tank either, and he burned up in a ball of fire only 15K off the worm hole.
After the tengu loss, shit got serious in worm hole 51. It was time for some RR fun! out of the high sec popped out about 7 RR BS with a armor tanked, and jam fit scorp. Serg tried in vein to bump something off the hole, but they had webs- and the group of RR sniper BS (yes rr on snipers ?!?!!) wasn't moving off the hole. Whats worse- serg was getting perma jammed form the scorp, and even if we could get a lucky bump- there was no way serg could slap his web on the target. So i came up with a plan. Serg alone could not break the RR tank. So i suggested that both of us over heat, and primary the scorp. If we could make that jump through the hole, we could the try to bump and web a BS off the hole. If the scorp was stupid enough to jump back in again, and try to save his friend- he would be locked out of the hole for 2min30sec and me and serg might have a chance at breaking it.
With the plan in hand, I decloaked- and was instantly red boxed by the entire group of BS. Volley after volley began flying around my purifier.... but as expected they were all way off from hitting their target me and serg started to take chunks of armor from the scorp.... when it was about 35% armor left, the scorp jumped, along with the other 5 BS back out to high sec.
So we moved to hole 308 (the guys who dropped a thanatos on us yesterday) and moved into the static C3 hole. Once inside we noticed a tengu piloted by a pilot i will not name. I had tried to kill this pilot multiple times but, he always had his drake stabbed.... with about 3 of them. we could never hold him. ever ytime I had engadged him, he would always primary me- send his drones on me... in fact i thnk that it was his goal in life to kill me in any way shape or form. Even if that meant sitting on a worm hole at 0 in your stabbed drake....
But today we had a secret weapon- Serg.
The tengu has a cloaky buzzard alt, and the second we popped through the hole, the tengu safed up. (Seemed that we caught him running his 3rd site... all the wrecks were yet to be salvaged.) Then he logged out.
I was livid.
Serg was sitting on the c2 side of the c3 and noticed that there was a falcon at one of the POS... once it disappeared, he postulated that perhaps the tengu might try and burn through the hole, with the tengu jamming him. So i called an SB friend of mine in a hound- and before you knew it we had serg on 0 of the worm hole, and a hound sitting with primed torps about 50K off.
As expected the tengu pilot logged in, and warped to the hole quickly. he jumped through. I sat on the C3 side waiting patiently. On the c2 side it seems that the falcon decloaked and got a face full of missiles.
serg locked up and pointed the enemy tengu... when it warped back through the worm hole. When it did that- it was all over. it was now sealed out of that worm hole for 2:30.... the worm hole shimmed on my side, so i decloaked and pointed the tengu. Serg and Chey (in his hound) were in tow. The pilot immediately seeing me primed me and let loose. But again a tengu with out a web is not going to break my tank. he lobbed missiles at me the entire time- once he hit about 33% on my MSE my HP sank no lower, and the tengu shattered 10 or so seconds afterwards.
Thanks to Serg, and Chay howler for flying with me
Again this bomber pilot would like to tip his over size AB hat to Serg- beautiful piloting man. Hope we have many roams in the future.
Next week I plan on writing a post from an SB point of view of all this. How does one stay alive? What is your role? What should you be doing in fleet?
