We formed up in caracals and Mauluses, with a nemesis for cloaky scouting and positioning. Other pilots coming in from NSC were bringing scythes, kiki, and a caracal. We were on the way to Tama, when we ran into a jaguar and kiki and traded shots near one of the stations. Meanwhile NSC pilots were already engaging a jackdaw that docked up. But they took station guns, not realizing they can't randomly shoot neutrals.
At one of the gates, we took on a kiki, keres, and jaguar as they engaged some pilots that didn't warp with the fleet and was off grid. We lost some ships as they kited us out. While some pilots went to reship, Zeeba was working with half the fleet to keep the kitey crew engaged while we brought some DPS back from eugales. Ultimately we got smoked when I didn't make the call to regroup and landed on a bookmark where I thought the other half of the fleet was located. Then we got kited out again by phantasm, kiki, keres, jaguar, Vedmak, and ONI. After we docked back up at
-Regroup as much as possible, since when we are split, we're very easy to kite out.
-Intel on the engaging fleet, turned out to be Exodus pilots whom were proficient at nano-kiting. We should have engaged more cautiously as a group, with better coordination and knowledge instead of just engaging on sight, thinking our logi and damps would be enough.
-ratios of DPS and ewar was skewed too much, we could have used more DPS than logi, since we could last longer, but we could not break their tanks.
-we lost 3 ships to gate guns because we engaged a neutral kiki, which was a mistake. There were calls for engagement, and I let that flow through instead of cancelling it.
