The only negative thing is I fed ceptor while was trying to tackle them on gate:
But that was just an intro.
For the actual roam we got:
- NOsprey, Cynabal, Phantasm, Caracal, Bifrost, Griffin, Sabre, Slasher, and Malediction.
- What did you do?
There were no good connections to obviously good places, so I picked Immensea. Lucky us, just 1 jump from Thera I found a combat site with 2 ratting Ishtars. I tackled one, luckily another was afk, so we killed both, but somehow I lost my ceptor, I guess I was dual boxing and did not run away on time. Also, the fleet was a bit slow landing secondary point

How did we miss 2nd pod if we had Sabre pilot?
Don't remember all details, but Vindicatives got Stiletto on us. He warped at 100 to the gate... and decided it is safe to cloak. LOL. Gemma was already aimed and booshed 5 ships that decloak Stiletto:

Some people were catching up, including my ceptor alt and we met near Brave's staging.
We could not catch Domi warping from the gate, but did catch Typhoon. Again, Gemma successfully booshed Phoon from the gate. While we were shooting it, more ships came in. It was nice shananigan, we lost Ashimu, but finished Phoon and also killed Rook. We lost Sabre and decided to run as Brave undocked usual ton of crap.

Nice work from Niv (Euclid) securing tackles!
I tried to bait them in a fight ongates at range but they had tanky ships ahead with decent DPS that we could not sustain so we went home through Provi.
Interestingly, on our way to the nearest Thera whole we went through Amarr FW space and got into a fight.
FIrst we killed NOsprey on a gate:
But later Rex caught up with us and decided to yolo Vigilant. We warped to help but unfortunately, we could not break it fast and he got reinforcements: including 2 T1 logy cruisers.

I decided to apply neuts to Vigil to kill it faster, but that did not help and only led to me feeding as well. After all, it feels stupid: we needed to pay attention to what's landing on the grid and at least switch to logies and kill them. Also, I guess I did not need to commit in my NOsprey, just stay at range and keep an eye on grid rather than staring at Vigil's HPs
- Decent amount of kills and fights
- Nice booshes from Gemma!
- Nice fight against Brave!
- Nice to get Niv back to fleets!
- Thera was not scanned well. We might need to donate more actively to EVE Scouts? Going forward, each time we get to the contentful area I encourage everyone to donate 1 mil to EVE Scouts (https://www.eve-scout.com/thera/contribute/)
- The whole we jumped through collapsed when even not the whole fleet jumped. Some folks moved through another hole 20 jumps away - and that one collapsed as well.
- What to improve on
- Don't brawl in a kitty ships.
Totally killed: +1,451M
Totally lost: -531M
See you next time!
