So … we had this big plan. Our intel team had been searching for weeks for a good candidate to seige. A target corp with sizable numbers and sizeable assets. A wormhole that required some sophisticated running techniques, and one we could get capitals into. Intel found one and did the intel on the owners. We planned. We strategized. We moved in ships and logged them out in deep space.
We planned for an all-weekend corp event, going toe to toe, hopefully getting good fights, tearing down their towers and taking whatever was left in the end. We stayed up to the wee hours moving ships and positioning. We slept like crap overthinking possible issues.
The Sky Marshall determined the most likely time for success. Unfortunately for me, it was in the middle of the workday. For up to six hours, the corp members who could be on waited patiently, running on alts or just watching Jabber.
Finally, the opposition logged on. They crashed themselves in to their wormhole and started to run Sleeper site escalations. The signal we had been waiting for was given.
Future Corps logged in everyone who could be online, smashed their 15 Billion ISK anti-Sleeper fleet, and podded most of them back to k-space. We took control of the static wormhole, and formed up to take on their POS infrastructure and anyone else they could log on.
But there wasn’t any further resistance.
It was about this time that I got home and logged on.
PS – Credit where due, there was no whining, wailing or tears. The victims took it in stride as all part of the game, and congratulated us on a nice ambush.
