Used In Anger

Last night I had a rare early-in-the-week Eve night and I logged in to find out that a CTA was on for ships to do some POS bashing: Dreads, Carriers, Support. Well I have a carrier! So I x'd up.

We eventually jumped to TP-RTO and went to work (unfortunately I forgot the screenshots at home; Another time). We first reinforced one POS then destroyed a second before moving on to a third. I used my small handful of 6 sentry drones to attack the tower and used my 11 fighters to incapacitate POS weapons and energy neutralizing batteries giving the fleet some issues.

That killmail is the first one ever to include the Ninveah. Yay me.

For the hour and a bit I was in fleet there was no hostile actions to harass us or defend the towers. I had to log halfway through and the fleet continued on to more towers.

Bashing towers with dreadnoughts is a hell of a lot faster than just battleships. A couple weeks ago it took us two hours to attack two medium towers; last night we were reinforcing or killing large towers within 20 minutes. This really makes me want to get into a dreadnought even more.

To that end, I decided it was time to bite the bullet and buy the skilbooks.
90 million = Caldari Dreadnought
57.6 = Command Ships
50.4 million = Logisitics ships x 2
22.5 million = Tactical Weapon Reconfiguration
13.5 million = Citadel Torpedoes
== 234 million ISK

    Heh heh, expensive business :) Not to mention 1.5bn for the dread hull, then the fittings.... it never ends!

  2. Fortunately for me the corp has one or two spare Phoenix ships hanging around unused which is what prompted me down this road to begin with. I would not have done it for myself.

  3. See that's the good thing about being in large corps or alliances.

    The money won't be a big problem for you as you always pull through :D
