      I have the privilege of writing up this hit, both by virtue of being part of it and by process of elimination, as my buddies can’t seem to keep their mouths shut when they have nothing nice to say.

      To be clear, this is not my hit, or Rocky’s hit. This is a team hit.

      Firstly, this hit would not be possible without Columbian. Columbian was cooking dinner (BBQ Chicken, Potato Salad, and Baked Beans; Yum!) and probing around a bit before reset, when she noticed a suspicious timer on one of Drog’s moons in the CLOSED deploy. A quick scan later and what do you know? Drog’s fleet is sitting, and he seems to be offline.

      Columbian immediately let Rocky know, who reached out to find anyone who could help with the hit, as well as starting to move deut into position. As soon as we realized CLOSED was moving their deploy away from g6 a couple weeks ago, we all set up mobiles as close as we could get, but the noob didn’t load it up with enough Deut to launch full fleet + recs.

      This is where I, Joker, come in. I was driving home when Rocky reached me, picking up the wife to head out to a show (which was great by the way). I immediately said I could fly (at a stoplight, no texting and driving here!) and put the pedal to the metal.

      When I got home, My Wife was amazing. She completely understood the opportunity, and swapped into the driver’s seat so I could focus on my phone and making the hit.

      And lastly, Sars, for always being there. I think this is the first time we’ve flown together, but good friends are hard to find and harder to keep. Glad you’re with us mate.

      On to the hit...

      When Columbian found the fleet, we did not have full knowledge of where all of Drog’s colonies were, and were very concerned he was idling on mobile trying to draw us out. But, as mentioned, reset was right around the corner, and when he didn’t log in, we knew this was our chance.

      Damn cargos are slow! Rocky’s deut cargos were taking way too long, so I guestimated how much deut I would need and sent what I had left in system to his moon. As soon as it landed, we launched, and with all quiet from the rest of CLOSED, we knew we were good. BOOM.

      A few notes...

      To Rocky, thank you for driving this hit. This is my first hit from my phone, and I don’t understand how anyone can play exclusively via that horrible interface. I placed my full faith and fleet in your hands, and it resulted in an undeniable success.

      To HOT, I could not find a better group of mates. I’m glad you took me in, and I hope I’m making you proud.

      To Drog, fast rebuild. You were a class act when you logged in after the hit. You’ll have the wreck field, and I think you still have ~20G from your hit on DA (I won’t reopen any discussion of that hit here; let’s leave that in its own thread). If you decide to keep fleeting, you’ll be back to a decent size in no time.

      To CLOSED, this is not the first battle of our cold war, but it’s the first decisively in either side’s favor. For your hit on Mike, you got lucky, but we were able to band together to bring equal(ish) losses to both sides; a net neutral outcome. With this hit, we got lucky, but the result is clearly in our favor. Not only does CLOSED take a 98G hit (Damage - Wreck Field), HOT makes 65G profit, for a swing of 163G. Now that’s a win.

      To the rest of Cygnus, do not underestimate us. This is what will happen if you do. We take care of our friends, and crush our enemies. You may take us down, but we will always return HOTter than ever.

      BUYING DEUT. Message any HOT in game

    • Ouch. I noticed this because I gained a rank for no reason.
      Sad to see this happen, even though Drog5 has been such a nuisance for me over the last few months. In fact quite a few of those ships crashed were built from the debris of my own ships. :)

      It was a nice find and profit.
      Hope all is okay with you Drog5 and wish you a fast rebuild.
      Prickly Thorn.....

      Thanks to Morlorv and Blackmass for this sig

      You actually are insane
    • I guess my deut cost for fs was getting too big so i had to lower it.

      Terrible mistake on my side.
      Was with gf, bit of naps bit of fun etc and i recalled my deut fleets but didn't main one.
      It landed and was just waiting to be crashed.
      Fully served for feast as someone said.
      Wasn't even worried about it but i guess shit happens.
      It just sucks that i lost it this easy with just a probe...
      Won't quit, its just on team to decide what playstyle should i play from now on.

      We had upper hand in this war but with one mistake i set it back to the same place we used to be.
      I guess Gonzo was right, if you really care and invest time you should check it multiple times before you go off to the rl.

      We all get hit at some time, that's how games goes.
      Congrats and tnx for classy post without any pokes.
    • Well didn't expect this guy to get hit so fast and so easily... simple probe and go
      but nonetheless Amazing job guys
      FR Def if you choose to
      it's funny how Karma wrote '' karma will take care of the rest''in the previous hit in DA... I guess it did

      Total Hofs In :+300

      ~Over n Out~

    • was a pleasure to fly/be the fly on the wall...

      GG attackers very big profit enjoy hope you all will start play way more active so we will have much bigger battles and war betwen us its not end.
    • crazy numbers, crazy profit, crazy persitcancy probing every day from columbian acct. Uni is going on for a long time but rocky always find time for probing so kudos to that. Classic spy and fly from our boys hot but they got some of the best spy n flys ive ever seen. GJ attackers, im hoping drog will stay and rebuild. Ive already told him but he should know that id pull him A lOT if he wants to stay. Im sure most from CLOSED will contribute and will make a bigger fleet than b4.

      FR homie
