Ouelletta was camped by two Gnosii from Stay Frosty, but we managed to evade them. Right as we warped to a ping a Uni bestower jumped in and got tackled by one of the pair.We warped back on gate to try to save him, which did not happen, and we had a Typhoon land on us.
After I warped off, Cristoph told me we were really close to get the Gnosis which was taking gate guns. I think I might have erred on the side of caution on this fight. We all came out unscathed though
Flatline and Analee were sent forward to challenge a Corax, and they didn't even wait for us
The Coercer was flashy and we gatecamped it, but Stay Frosty really wanted to use that Typhoon in anger, they chased us away
We are still on it though, so peace!
This was a really good fight, we warped to a plex hoping to find an Ishkur, but he had left. We slid in, got some optimal on the beacon,
managed scrams and points and webs wonderfully and took hold of the battlefield! They also had a retri that tried to play with us but got shut down.
After this the RvB fellas tried to gatecamp us in two different locations, tried to alpha me on a gate and failed to do so. While they were waiting to camp us, they got another group to fight them, so I called for Tolerin to jump and lock all he could find. Since the fight was kinda even we decided to third party and attacked everything on sight, hoping our scattershot would give us some good kills. We traded up, got rewarded and went to Tama happy and flashy! Since there was almost no one left in space, we called it a night!

Fleet discipline was good, scouting was top notch and I'm happy that I see many newbros joining this kind of impromptu roam! Keep it up unistas!
Not having a doctrine made it difficult to judge engagement profiles correctly and which ship could take what. I think some decisions were good, as one fight with a wolf in a plex, some were maybe too cautious, as the gnosis engagement. I really need to review any footage we might have of that, I might have called the warp too early. With no idea of ranges and dps, this fleet might have been a bit on the side of kitey potshots format
I think that my decision making can get a bit too defensive, especially if caught a bit by surprise like the Bestower needing help. I can plan a fight, I just need to get an edge on taking unplanned ones.
Thanks to all who flew with us, until next time!
