    • ACS 2 - [TOT: 9.265.502.000] Dani [PocoLoco] vs. MicRoN [NWO] & N-E-O [Apex] & Jab [Apex] (A: 7.814.536.000, D: 1.450.966.000)

      First of all, Posting on behalf of all parties.

      Our story begins, just like a lot of these stories begins, someone getting drunk, and wrongly fleet saving. In this case it was Micron doing an amazing job of sending a deploy to a planet. He didn't realise until he woke up but luckily for him, (not so much for Dani) he came on well before the time it was supposed to land to recall. He left it for a while, Dani decided to full launch, and as you do, Micron recalled. Before this though, he sent a message to the ever faithful, ever charming Jab. Asking if things got hairy would he be able to help, Jab, not knowing if this may be a setup, or what, laid down so pretty strict rules, but agreed to help. This is of course, after he messaged APEX to see if anyone would be interested in helping, and know and behold, N-E-O stuck his hand up. (THATS ME BTW xD)

      There was a long time on the return at this point, about 12 hours, so myself and Jab had some time to kill. He went off and got drunk, (which was worrying to say the least) and I continued to farm until later into the night. Then the preparations could begin. After a quick 6 hours sleep N-E-O awoke, fleets down and ready to defend, Jab, had yet to have his fleet return. As we planned in Discord and conversed with Micron about the what ifs, the preparations could really begin. With one defending fleet 1 second ahead of the Micron returning, it was down to the fabled timing skills of Jab to secure the lock in as well. Which he did. With ease.

      Then, it was just a waiting game. We waited to see what would happen, weather he would send full fleet or just enough, or, if he would launch at all. Meanwhile, while the defenders where all contemplating what was going to unfold Dani started to prepare himself, scanning both N-E-O and Jab, there was * on the moons. But to Dani's dismay/happiness (at the time) saw no signs of there being, or had been, fleet on anywhere he scanned. N-E-O and Jab where safe it seemed. Then something that both N-E-O and Jab didn't expect.

      Now this was something neither of the APEX defenders expected, and chatter began to go again, about weather he may have sent to give him enough time to scan and recall. Jab had sent the recs to cover the entire endeavour. But unfortunately due to the 9 second gap in fleets, Jabs impeccable timing to take the DF 1 second after Micron's fleet landing was thwarted. So he had to recall. Luckily, N-E-O had a backup plan, but unfortunately would be no where near as well timed as Jab. So the recs where sent to land 45 seconds after the hit took place. So with all the duet burned, and 20 mins till contact, we where all talking about the what ifs, if he did recall, what if he did scan and have that time. BUT, luckily for the defenders. That was not the case and what you see below follows.

      Dani, well played, you have made the hair on many fleeters neck stand on end, enjoy the hard earned vacation.
      Congrats on 1kk Honour points xD and if you do decide to stay, I wish you a VFR as I do think Jab and Micron would as well.
      If you dont decide to come back we all wish you all the best IRL.

      This dedi might be a long one:
      Micron-without the drunken screw up this would not have been possible
      Jab- always a pleasure flying with you, and your timing and confidence even while drunk is something to always lighten the mood in a tense situation
      APEX- as if not for APEX being around, these glorious things might not happen as often

      So without a further a do, enjoy.

      Lets drink till we cant feel feelings anymore!
    • Oh Dani... What can I say.....I thought u learned to be more careful by now. Greed is not good in a game like this.

      To my boys then well fking done! Near perfect execution. I'm happy to see you guys pull something like this off - even if it happened while I was on a multi day FS :thumbup:

      Hope to see you soon Dani! It's never to late!
    • Congrats on the well executed defend guys! Well planned and timed and well recovered when things didnt go quite to plan. Very jealous i wasnt needed to burn all the doot and fly 200 systems this time as i would have loved to have a slice of early morning fun but hopefully next time...

      I was among those convinced that Dani left the 9sec gap for a security probe and recall as its what i would have done (and have done in the past). Not sure what went on on your end Dani but i hope it wasnt lag or anything like that on your end.

      Dani, hoping the vacay isnt too long as we need quality players like yourself to keep this uni chugging along. I hope you come back and GLOTR when you do.
