[2020-06-23] Thera Roam - #2
Posted: Fri Jul 24, 2020 3:54 am
Based on experience I've learned flying Yeet and Thera roams with Sid, Rex, Apocrite, William, Unit, Shadow, I decided to run a regular weekly Thera roams: it looks like we always find some content and due to EVE Scouts work it is easy to navigate to different places of New Eden.
This time we formed up
This time we formed up
- DualProp Phantasms
- 2 standard NOspreys
- Tripple-dump Keres
- Stiletto (under my alt)
- What did you do?
First, we jumped into Wicked Creek to see high ADM system: I expected some miners, but instead we had Typhoon jumping into us from Thera. He did cloak shortly after exiting the whole and successfully escaped our attempts to decloak him. But was not patient enough to wait while we leave. He decloaked and warped, but we saw where he warped to and Xyrin was able to tackle him:
After we went to Cobalt Edge, caught Veni VIdi Vici's rather:
Cobalt Edge +243M
and engaged with their response fleet on the gate. I fed my NOmen:

We could try to give him a fight, but I did not have 2nd experienced FC on grid and could not FC fight against overwhelming fleet from the pod. So I decided to disengage. We lost a Caracal: I guess pilot was a bit too slow and warped to a gate which was already occupied:
We reshipped in Thera and went towards Tenal. VVV folks showed themselves and tried to bait us, but I did not want to commit. Though, feels it was a mistake: we could pull some fight from that.
In Tenal we caught quite a few ships:
Gila - https://zkillboard.com/kill/85834972/ +221M
MTU - https://zkillboard.com/kill/85835151/ +10M
Hecate - https://zkillboard.com/kill/85835437/ +63M
Caracal - https://zkillboard.com/kill/85836200/ +35M - I invited guy to fleet and warped him to the sun where we killed it. You can imagine the guy was upset
Cyno Sigil - https://zkillboard.com/kill/85836290/ +5M
Bait Punisher - https://zkillboard.com/kill/85836419/ +3M
another MTU - https://zkillboard.com/kill/85836438/ +16M
Further, when we were in Thera already, William called point on Praxis in Geminate. He took some damage and had to leave, but when we were nearby, William came back - same Praxis was sitting and asking to be killed, which we happily did:
During the roam I believe we did not lose any other ships.
- Good turnaround
- Decent kills
- New players keep joining corp
- Relatively fast form-up
- Can't really say anything negative
- What to improve on
- I could avoid using my NOmen if I pulled some range before tackling Deimos, though I thought he is gonna run
- Would be good to have some experienced nano-gankers to help FCing and driving the fleet
See kills above.
Totally killed: +736M
Totally lost: -144M
