The battle was both epic and long strung. Because of TiDi. I kept at it deep into the night. TiDi is short for Time Dialation (or somesuch), it means that CCP slows down the time in a certain system to be sure that the server can process all commands. I went along with a Logistics ship (Logi), which means I didn't get any kills, but I prevented the enemy of killing our guys.
The opposition had a lot of jamming ships and that was annoying, as they target logistic ships the whole time in order to prevent us from repping(healing in wow
) the right person/ship.
I was actually pretty lucky to get on board, as I thought I couldn't be of any use. Seems that I was.
In the beginning both sides started to pick on each others FC's [Fleet Commanders, the leader in each fleet giving orders and calling the targets]. Test FC's were disposed pretty quickly, all goon FC's lived to see another battle. That fact alone was a big reason of our victory. At one point our FC was primaried by three fleets of TEST and he got repairs from two Logistics squadrons from two CFC fleets.
It seems to me that TEST battle command isn't as well organised as the CFC's. Surprisingly a lot of the pilots were EU based, so I bet there were hundreds employees with little beady eyes in the office on monday, and I was one of them
It is by far the biggest fight I had, but not the best.
TiDi also made sure I could inform winbrian of all the stuff that was happening trough facebook
