Covering stuff over the last 3 days or so:
Well, after getting some easy hulk kills (these guys were smart and had scanned down the grav sites before the miners onlined - knew that was eventually going to happen), a corp that seems to be based in Germany seems to have decided the wanted to setup shop in one of our wormholes. Regardless of the fact that we'll eventually be abandoning this particular hole (want to concentrate the alliance in a better one), this was a little precocious. Ah well, exit plans delayed.
Anyways, last night, with most of my BS PVP'ers stuck in wormhole space, we assembled a BS heavy bash fleet and went to POS bash. Some of my newbies learned that frigates and cruisers are not the best things to bring to one of these parties, but what can you do? Some newbies learn the hard way.
A prety un-eventful POS bash as such things go. Timezone differential and what not. Not the best designed small POS setup I'd ever seen (no hardeners and the gun layout left a wee bit to be desired). But far be it for me to point it out to the enemy before the fight. It's never polite to interupt an enemy in the middle of making a big mistake. 4h later the POS was in reinforced (I do hope the rest of the BS pilots can make it out of those class 5 wormholes before the Friday evening).
Well once again wormholes are providing more 0.0 style experience for everyone. This was my first POS bash and although I can see why it would become a little teedious with BS fleets, small POS's are not exactly the toughest targets there are. Still good fun on coms.
