From ganker, to savior, to target, to hunter, to ally, to enemy..
Tonight I was reminded yet again why Wspace is the place.
We roll the hole and I drop my scout in first. A quick info look up on the POCO tells me that its Red Fires' hole. There are only a couple ships on D, nothing larger than an Omen Navy and we figure its POSed up. I drop probes, and begin the chain.
It goes quickly because I'm not alone. I find the first hole, call out in coms a scout in waiting jumps the hole. He calls out the next hole and another scout jumps that hole. We leap frog over each other each person finishing up the scan in one hole and a new person jumping into connection after connection.
Less than 15 minutes pass and our chain is more than 8 holes deep. This is fairly standard for us, we cover a lot of ground very quickly. Anything out of the ordinary we call out and plot its demise.
Tard (great name after I just said we were all adults... o well) calls out that he has a Sigil baiting sitting on a hole. We know its baiting because why else would a Sigil just sit there. Tard is a special pilot, he favors aggressiveness over calculated caution. In most cases it works for him, but in the case of a baiting target, not the best of choices.
The Sigil jumps into a C2 from the C4 and he follows it.
He springs the trap and the nearest ship to support him is my Gila 5 jumps away down the chain.
Two bombers uncloak on the other side. Tard assumes the bombers are hunting the Sigil also, so he says on coms. "O look, bombers, I'm going to Save the hauler!!". The same ship he himself was about to gank. He locks up one of the bombers and kills it.
The sigil locks up Tard. "Hows that for gratitude?"
The people baiting, were obviously looking for more than just Tard to kill because I was able to make it 5 jumps before I landed on grid with a phobos, curse, domi and svipel. After some quick scambling tard and I manage to get out of the trap.
The remaining support coming to help us find that some of the R3d Fire guys are in the chain between the trap group and their home hole, so we have 2 fights going on at the same time.
Tard is calling out ships in the C4 with the trap group, another person is calling out targets in the Static C5 through the chain. We end up getting out fleet made up of mostly random shield kitchen sink spread out 5 jumps worth of wspace.
Tard on his one man mission, finds were the baiters live and starts calling about rattlesnake, raven, raven, nightmare.... more and more.. We all want to get there, but we have R3d Fire fighting us with 3 Navy Omens and some god damn Oracle in the chain to support him.
He manages to extract out of their hole, but not before we lose a strat. (sad face) I guess the baiters, seeing that we were coming in force, decided to try and roll their hole connected to the C4. They trapped out a raven and rattlesnake doing it. lolz
We caught the rattle and his pod.
During all the confusion of killing the rattle snake, we still have Red Fire running around in the chain. They some how ended up killing a falcon I loaned to someone. https://zkillboard.com/kill/49321933/
We go back to shooting at Red fire and essentially have ships across 5 wormholes. Then, out of no where a random raven that was trapped out jumps into our fleet....https://zkillboard.com/kill/49322041/ and his pod
Then we are back to fighting with R3d Fire again and nail one of their Omen Navy Issues down https://zkillboard.com/kill/49322147/
Its back and forth through the chain, they are warping off, kiting, we have pilots all through chain, so do they.. its bananas. Good fights.
Omen Navy. https://zkillboard.com/kill/49322349/
Oracle : https://zkillboard.com/kill/49322510/
We lost a few ourselves, it was back and forth non stop for at least an hour. Till....
Someone said on coms that another group was camping one of the high secs entrances to the chain. Turns out R3d Fire had been fighting with them on the high sec trying to get their pilots back in we podded out.
The people camping the high sec are using a devoter to prevent R3d Fire from getting back into their home, to get more ships and fight us.
Well, we simply can't have that.
I started a convo:
[ 2015.09.29 00:40:54 ] Longinius Spear > Your pods want free passage back to your home?

We set Red Fire to blue, so we wouldn't accidentally kill them. :P
They must have headed back down the chain with more pilots to get the campers off the high sec. We headed down in like 10 confessors or some crazy shit. RAWR!

Killed a Hacate too https://zkillboard.com/kill/49323548/
We then removed R3d Fires blue status and went back to shooting at them. Lol.
We went from ganking a hauler, to saving a hauler, to losing a fight, to winning a fight. We blued up the people we were fighting, for the soul reason to shoot at them more after they had a chance to reship/return and fight more.
Props to Red Fire because as I write up the crazy story, we are still at it. Shooting at them and them shooting at us...
I fucking love wspace people.
