I’m not going to cover what happened, as I wasn’t there. But we were monitoring it on Razor comms as we made our way over to sneak onto whatever killmails we could. In the end, we ended up trading five dreads for two and a carrier. If we hadn’t committed dreads, we would have had to suffice with getting only one dread. But, hey, what’s the point of having them if we don’t use them? We make plenty of isk to replace them, but one never likes losing ships.
But, at the bottom of the link above, go ahead and listen to some of the attached soundcloud. The person speaking is Elo Knight, the chief FC of BL.
Now listen to the tracks on the soundboard here. That’s Makalu Zayra (former -A-, now PL). Makalu is the guy who used his titan as bait to take out that BL fleet. Let the comparisons marinate.
In Razor, we have a pilot named Xenermorph who sounds the same way as Elo Knight. Flying for an FC like him, who keeps his cool, is what I imagine fighting for a Scipio Africanus or a Julius Caesar was like. A cool, calm FC can extract the maximum value from a fleet by keeping his members calm and following orders. Focus on the task, not the situation.
Consider me impressed by Elo Knight. He acted with class and poise.
BL was beaten, but so long as he continues to FC like this, they’ll never be defeated.
