Trade: Loki for Tengu+

A scout has found an active system with 5 pilots moving around in various combat ships. We form up and move into position. I leave the non-cloaky ships C2A while the cloaky ships move into position on the C4A to C2B wormhole. The targets are in the C2B and have moved a Naga into position around 190km from the wormhole.

Our scout tackles the Naga with his Anathema! Go Jeanne! I send the Loki forward to assist with instructions to let me know when he wants me to move the Guardians forward. He engages and they warp a Talos, Hawk, Scorpion and a Tengu forward.

I make the call for action. The cloaky fighters (including me) jump the wormhole and immediately warp to our Loki friend. It is apparant while I am in warp that I made a mistake leaving the Guardians back what is basically 2 jumps.

As we are landing, I call primary on the Talos and secondary points on the Tengu. Two of my corpmates then ask what Talos? I do not see any Talos. I recheck my overview and since I have a Talos locked and pointed, it is a pretty fair assumption that they have forgotten to adjust their overview settings.

The Loki pilot holds out for a surprisingly long time at low armor, but my initial assessment during my short warp was correct. In spite of the efforts of our Falcon pilot, the Guardians land just as we lose the Loki.

The Ferox, Hawk and Scorpion bug out leaving us to kill the Talos, Tengu and a late arriving Tornado. Yay for 40km points! Good fights are exchanged in local and we loot sufficient items to pay for a new Loki for our friend.

  1. What do you mean, "What Talos?". The one I am shooting at would be fine! :P
