Viking Burial Redux

Well, the deed is done. Maythorn and friends showed up for another dip and the two Archons I wanted gone and, in the end, they are indeed gone. It just didn't quite go as expected.

We formed up in a very similar composition to last time, the two Triage Archons, a handful of Armour Battleships, Battlecruisers & Cruisers and clean pods. Maythorn and co probably weren't as prepared last time and we were hopeful of a better showing on this occasion but alas, two Archons just didn't seem to be enough of a lure to get some people to log in. They came nonetheless, in a mixed fleet of armour cruisers, Battleships and a couple of Bhaalgorns, out numbering us slightly but two Triage fit Archons would comfortably negate such a small advantage. As soon as the fight began, it became abundantly clear that the three Guardians were not going to be able to keep their fleet alive. It was a fleet of many corporations however, so it's fair to say communications probably weren't as stellar as you'd find on that of a corporation who fly together regularly. So the dominos fell and our reps held, clearing the field in fairly short order.

Alas, that wasn't the point of the exercise. These Archons needed to die, so it soon became everyone vs the Archons as we combined what remaining forces there were to send these Capitals to their resting place with Bob. It turns out a cap fit Triage Archon is a bitch to neut out so it took a long damn time, but we got there in the end.

Thank you to everyone who showed up, it was a blast.
