I'll be running multiple guardian's gala wormhole dives during this event.

Formups will all be in Amygnon and times will be posted on calendar
Doctrine will be a bit kitchen sink but we will want:

at least 1 cloaky scout
at least 2 augurors
some form of booster, either T1 BC or command dessie is fine (cheap mindlink pls as well)
at least 3 BC or BS dps ships. armour tanked and with close or mid range weapons

These sites have been out for all of a few hours so maybe this comp isnt enough or is super overkill but we will find out together and updates will be posted here as necessary.

Stream of Suitonia going through some sites: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/551265747

Info
* Damage from rats from non-wormhole sites appear to be somewhat low. I think Suit's VNI reps approximately 400-500EHP without nanite and it was holding up fine by itself against the non-boss waves.
* Rats have neuts, scrams, webs and target painters.
* Some rats have 90% webs.
* Rats prioritize drones.

Rats
* Cynabal: 12km - Neut, Scram
* Exequror: 12km - Logi
* Talos: 16km
* Hyena: 16km - Paint, Web, Scram
* Catalyst: 4km - Scram
* Dramiel: 5km - Neut, Web, Scram
* Keres: 12km - Damp, Scram
* Celestis: 16km - Damp
* Vigilant: -
* Daredevil: 3km - Web(90%), Scram
* Talwar: - 18km
* Huginn: - Paint, Web, Scram
* Tornado:
* Nemesis: - Paint, Damp
* Machariel: - Neut, Scram - 50em/50exp
* Hound
* Vindicator: 4km, Web(90%), Scram

Rat distances are observed distance the rats appear to prefer to stay from player.

Damage: Omni

Everything from perspective of a solo player stream so behavior to gangs is unknown.
Will update as I watch.

Archemide + DJ took us into a WH VIP site last night, plus a regular flavor Null Gala site. We were ludicrously overpowered - from memory I think we had 7 or 8 feroxes, 4 ospreys, a booster (or did he join us for the pvp afterwards?? I forget), a webber, and a salvage cormorant. Admittedly there were several newbros in both roles, and the logi FC was inexperienced, but we were never in any danger from the rats.

Interestingly, I didn't see the rats focus targeting. They always spread damage, making it easy to local rep. And of course they went for the drones every time - logi did not even bother launching shield bots.

We did not have great luck with loot drops, so the payout was low for the effort involved. I thought it was fun, and it was good practice, like running a burner mission in a fleet.

Looking forward to running with you, maybe I'll be DD next time. Augorors and what, blaster Brutix? That'd be fun.

Is my Vexor to low for this? If so is there a BLAP build that would work?

Now that we've ran a few sites it looks like our original proposed fleet comp is in fact overkill. Personally I've solo'd the non-VIP sites comfortably with a Single Med Rep Brutix.

A fleet of ~5 BLAP Vexors and some logi should be adequate even for VIP sites although you would need to micromanage drones quite a bit... I would recommend a non-drone-boat for these sites.
