Null Bear Fleet started out as normal! Good and quick scanning down of the wormhole system that we went through to start getting on top of targets using Arin's fantastic Prey Hunter Spreadsheet.

Initial issues with some new members to the fleet who weren't aware of the drifter danger on the holes and got blapped, so some extra information on the initial entrance into the wormhole system.

We swiftly managed to track down a couple of Skiffs, and some good effort from Yto and Mike manage to lock down one of them for us for the first kill of the evening.

Moving swiftly on we didn't have much luck until we found a ratting Vargur. However unfortunately for us, it was a bait that had been set, and suckered us in. A valiant effort was made to break it's tank, and it looked like we would, but it was to no avail and ultimately we had to quit the field when the Bait was revealed and it repped itself back up. This was where the main bulk of the loss occurred.

During the above fight is when I was passed over the Full FC from Marek, and kept it for the rest of the roam.

Secondary to this we went on a quick jaunt from one Hole to another looking for Targets of opportunity along the way. As we traversed a pipe in Detorid we ran into a Quick Response Fleet that was a bit too loaded for us to take a fight on, so we played some cat and mouse games as we looked for a way to break away from the fight.

Yto did a great job in baiting a boosh from them giving us the opportunity to bail back to our Wormhole.

After that we had a look for some other content, but pretty much that was the end of the roam.

Positive Stuff:

Fun roam overall, with some decent cat and mouse games down one pipe.
Glad I got an opportunity to FC for the second half!

Negative Stuff:

We should have bailed on the Vargur sooner. When we recognised the bait we should have quit the field sooner. This was definitely something to pay more attention to.

Thank you Roscoe for stepping up to FC, we had great numbers last night!
We had a pretty lively evening, thanks to all who showed up!
Last night we had the chance to fully understand how a PvP fit Marauder is mighty different from the krabfit ones!

Hope to fly with y'all next week!

Now I see why I couldn't find Marek's After Action Report :P

It pains me to say it, but the Fleet was abnormally large. I'm unsure why that is. I always assumed Nullbears under Yto and Marek would attract throngs of capsuleers. You get to
  • scan lots of Cosmic Signatures
  • visit the mysterious and dangerous Drifter Wormhole
  • visit lots of Null Security Systems
  • and critical roles are filed with people of excellent personal and professional qualities
The Fleet was amazing! Here are a few more notes to compliment Roscoe's:
  • Mike goaded me into being Third in Command. Roscoe promptly stated that makes me Second in Command to Roscoe.
  • Once Roscoe became the Fleet Commander, they started maneuvering the Fleet. They were suspiciously good at it. I assign a 30% probability Roscoe is a spy. :P ahhahahahahahahhaha
  • There were far too few Cosmic Signatures per person... some poor souls weren't even assigned a single Wormhole to scan down :(
  • Yto entertained the Fleet by creating a Bookmark near the Sisters of EVE Armada. Image. Thank you, thank you Yto! :)
  • I attended a photography camp very many years ago. I still remember that the upper right quadrant being the most important part of the image. That's why I've aligned the Armada along the antidiagonal
  • We already scanned down Cosmic Signatures and took lovely images of the Armada. Trying to pulverize the 2B+ Minmatar Marauder Class Battleship was a cherry on top :)
  • Yto and Roscoe trying to lead the Fleet to safety through multiple fortified Stargates. manned by more then a dozen diverse ships was absolutely terrifying... I think I lost my inner voice from how much I screamed. In the end Yto sacrificed themselves to create an opening which Roscoe used to break through their encampment and lead us into Drifters' embrace :)
  • Did you know Pirates are able to construct and deploy Titans? :D
Well done Roscoe! :) Taking orders from you was a joy! :)

By the end of the fight he still had 9 of his 10 cap boosters left. And he did underrep on purpose to keep us into the fight for longer :)


This was a fun experience, and in the future i would call that fight way sooner. I think once we knew he wasn't PvE-fit we should have scattered ASAP. Would have been a nice Killmail though.. ;)



Well done Roscoe, the fleet was in safe hands with you! :)


I hope everyone enjoyed themselves, we'll do it again next week! :D

Thanks for the kind words guys! :)

I'm glad you still had fun and adrenaline filled content even if it was a lot of sensible running away :D

And thanks Marek again for letting me step up and FC for a chunk of the flight!

And jesus, that PVP fit for Krabbing! What a madman!
