[AAR] EDI Flash Fleet to Extractive Super-Nexus

EDI Flash Fleet to Extractive Super-Nexus

Image

Objective:

  • Destroy the Extractive Super-Nexuses in Triglavian Minor Victory Systems

Destination:

  • Asteroid Belts with Extractive Super-Nexus in Piekura and Litiura, Caldari State, Minor Triglavian Victories

Communication and Planning

Used an ad-hock, hierarchy flat, Discord channel for communication.
The Fleet Commander said "check check" when they wanted radio silence.


Fleet composition:
  • 8 Damage Dealers
  • 6 Non-Chain Logisticians
  • 1 Salvager

Timeline

  • Fleet form up at 16:00
  • Fleet undock at 16:50
  • Fleet underway at 17:00
  • Five minute bio break at 18:35
  • At 19:00 the Fleet was dismissed due to lack of Damage Dealers

Discoveries

Extractive Super-Nexus:
  • Located in Asteroid Belts in Triglavian Minor Victory Systems
  • Attacking it summons a Triglavian Response Fleet
  • Triglavian Response Fleets did not include Deployable Weapon System Kikimoras
  • Triglavian Response Fleets target Drones if they are deployed early
  • Capsuleers reported severe framerate drop at the first Extractive Super-Nexus [1]
  • Ore loot was underwhelming compared to the effort required to destroy the Structure [2]

Standings:
  • Triglavian Response Fleets were often Neutral white instead of Enemy red despite having negative Triglavian Standing
  • If you do no attack Triglavians, but only provide Logistical support, your Standing will not decrease

Fleet:
  • Target priorities were delegated to the Tagger, but were often: Dazh Industrials, Anchoring role ships, Hospodar ranked ships, then what the Tagger said
  • Logisticians were divided into two groups and their targets were called by the Fleet Commander
  • Members used "I" and "me" instead of their name when referring to themselves which caused confusion

Fleet Commander:
  • Had issues with Discord
  • Delegated tasks to Fleet members
  • Warped Fleet from Stargate to Stargate
  • Set Fleet rules: radio silence, calls and responses

Outcome:

  • Gathered a lot of data about the Extractive Super-Nexuses and their Response Fleets
  • Destroyed four Extractive Super-Nexuses and two Entropic Disintegrator Werposts in two different Systems
  • Gathered loot and salvage that will be distributed based on how many Extractive Super-Nexuses each member helped destroy

About the EDENCOM Defense Initiative


Personal Notes

  • A Fleet member was banned from the EDI Discord which cause the Fleet to stay docked for much longer
  • There was no sign up procedure for the Fleet
  • Fleet Fittings were not published publicly
  • Loot management slowed down the Fleet: salvaging was an afterthought, the Salvager joined late, the Salvager was experiencing crippling lag in Jita, the salvage volume was too much for a single ship to carry

One of the great joys of attending a Public Fleet is that you never know what will happen next:
  • A capsuleer was banned from the EDI Discord and we had to move to a third-party Discord Channel
  • A capsuleer didn't want to jump into a System because they feared their 300M ISK well-tanked Battleship would be ganked and destroyed
  • A capsuleer thought that Command Burst charges were infinite and would never be consumed
  • A capsuleer was killed by the opposing member of the Faction Warfare Militia and their wreck was looted by a third-party
  • The Salvager responsible for handling loot was also the capsuleer that lagged the most in Jita
  • Capsuleers left the Fleet without giving even a five minute notice

Not only did I gather lots of valuable data for the Wiki, but I also met different capsuleers from all over New Eden. Comparing how they think, behave and talk gave me valuable insights into the size, complexity and beauty of New Eden. :)

If you'd like to know what it was like to assault the Stellar Fleet Deployment Site, check out my previous Report.


Does this Fleet appeal to you? Do you think a University Fleet could do better? :) If you are interested in attending a similar Event feel free to contact me. :)

Re: [AAR] EDI Flash Fleet to Extractive Super-Nexus

Thanks Virgilia :) What makes this particular Fleet even sweeter is that I got recognized by the Fleet Commander :D

They even gathered extra data from the report and approved a custom made Logistics Fit :)

Re: [AAR] EDI Flash Fleet to Extractive Super-Nexus

Yours truly was invited personally to attend and report on the EDI dual-standing expedition headed for Pochven! :D

The Fleet will form up today at 15:30 and depart at 1600 EVE Time from an unknown System in armor-tanked Battleships and Battlecruisers with supporting tackle, probing, tackle and salvage vessels. The expedition will yield, yet again, vital information for the Wiki. For more information about the Fleet, Event and Ship Fits please contact "Aryan Aryaie" in game ;)
