Its 5:40 PM... do you know where your BoB invasion fleet is?

May 3 2006, EVE Online - V2-VC2 (Home system of Huzzah Federation)

It seems that Band of Brothers (BoB), EVE Online's version of an uber guild, has parked a nice little invasion fleet outside our home station in V2-VC2. They seem to be currently setting up a small control tower (player owned structure) that is equivalent to a floating Death Star. It can't be used to attack us directly, but if you get to close to it you can kiss that shiny ship of yours goodbye.

If you haven't sensed it yet... we are in trouble if we don't move fast. We are forming up right now as I post this and it's going to be a hell of day... week.... month depending on how long BoB plans to stick around. If you don't know anything about EVE then you may not understand any of this. It's WAR. It's gritty, overwhelming, and unpredictable chaos. This is the CHANGE that I expect in an MMORPG.

This fight (if it turns into a fight instead of a lot of nothing) will determine our future in EVE Online. We are one of the few, if not the only one, that seem to be willing to fight BoB. BoB unfortunately have a huge hand up on everyone they deem willing to fight because of their broad access to Tech II ships and weapons... along with a massive infrastructure geared directly towards massive WAR support.

If we win... we are sending a message that BoB will not soon forget. Sadly though... this is a small offensive on their part, but is still bigger than anything any other EVE alliance could muster.

To WAR.

Sounds like all hell is gonna break lose - any chance of a video of the flight for freedom? My corp is only a small 8 man operation camped in 0.6 space - none of us have been playing mroe than a year so still very much n00bish in the pvp - the fact we havnt done any yet lol.

Good luck against BoB and send a hi to Lucius Amarriantis sometime :)

Well so far its a lot of nothing. They are there... we are there... no oneis fighting. Lots of Teamspeak crashes.

well hrm it sounds fun, is somebody frapsing it?

Nothing really happens. A few ships get lost in each engagement, but nothing major.

Then BoB logged on their main fleet and spanked our station and POS down. So we are on the edge.

We haven't lost yet and I don't think we will, but we have our backs against he wall. What we do now determines our fate.

Is Huzzah worhty of 0.0? Only we can decide that now.

Well the invasion is done... just a bit of weekend fun for the BoB folks. They came, they saw, and then they left.
