|Take That Tama!|
Our little defence fleet was overwhelmed quickly at the spot I picked, 100 km below the Pelille III station with a nice view of the rings, and I didn't realize I screwed up my voice comms when I disabled it in one client and not the other. I was talking, guys, really!
As for the attackers, there seemed to be at least three main fleets - Noir (30), Rote Kapelle (21), and Rooks and Kings (25) - and a few smaller groups and lots of individuals judging by the killmail. From what I can tell on my screen and reports I got from eyes around the system, the three big fleets played cat and mouse with each other for about 10 minutes after I landed until Rooks and Kings made a move to land on top of me and at once shoot me and rep me if anyone else came by. Whether that was a tactic to try and ensure the most damage award or simply to see if anyone was going to up the ante with an all in assault or hot drop, I don't know.
A few times my shields were depleted and I went into low armour but the Guardians of RnK kept me going until finally, around 9:40 pm I hit structure and then it was quickly over. Final tally on my killmail was 162 involved parties. The pod was popped without much adieu as well.
I did have fraps running most of the time so I will have a video in a week or so up, and a couple screenshots are coming.
