Small gang content is what W-Space is all about. In such situations, pilot ability and communication are as much a weapon as the ship you are flying. You don't have to be Sun Tzu to know that. As such, we are always on the lookout for such an opportunity. Sudden Buggery frequently bite off far more than they can chew, such is our desire for that sort of content. Sometimes it goes great, sometimes it goes bad. But it's just pixels and it's always entertaining. If you can't deal with losing a few ships here and there you probably don't belong in Sudden Buggery and certainly don't belong in W-Space.

Sunday morning we get word of a Stratios poking about in our chain belonging to a pilot from Wingspan TT. They're a corporation who've gained some notoriety thanks to their CEO Chance Ravinne's YouTube Channel. I'm not going to link it but if you like to watch someone cloaky camp a system in a stealth bomber whilst he muses about whether or not the Retriever he could disengage at any moment is bait or need tips on how to track down and murder Mobile Tractor Units in NullSec, he's your guy.

Knowing the Modus Operandi of Wingspan such as we do, we knew they wouldn't engage anything that posed a threat, so we deployed the trusty bait Sigil with it's crazy shield regeneration. Upon our bait pilot jumping out to HiSec we were told of a further three Wingspan pilots in local, presumably cloaked on the HiSec waiting for their scout to find a defenseless mule. So our bait warps off to station, then back to the HiSec to jump in and hopefully be tackled. Fighting on a HiSec is never favourable as your enemy can withdraw far too easily, but it was the situation we found ourselves in and maybe, just maybe, our quarry were of a similar mind that perhaps they could kill a ship or two before being forced to withdraw.

The Sigil jumps in and is immediately engaged by the Stratios waiting within. Wormhole fire behind the Sigil saw two more Stratios and a Falcon [lol] follow through. With the hook implanted our fleet composition of a Lachesis, Stratios, Orthrus and a Scythe entered warp. The Falcon was of course called primary but as we were landing he was already jumping out to HiSec. You know where this is going, right? Yep, the three Stratios' all jumped out also, without us even doing so much a a yellow box.

Three Stratios and a Falcon vs a Stratios, Lachesis, Orthrus and a Scythe and your first instinct is to run like Forrest Gump. I'm just glad your members can legally marry now.
