FENDing off the last few weeks

So I suppose I have been slacking and not really coming up with anything creative to post here!  Meanwhile in eve Rote Kapelle has been having a great time back in Syndicate.

We'd love to take the credit for pushing Primary. (the recent additions to TXW) into inactivity, but really it seems that World of Tanks and a lack of will to play the game has gutted the attempt to re-form and re inspire the Primary. Alliance.  A bit of a shame as we were looking forward to some good fights in TXW for a change.  Over the last few weeks their activity has really trailed off leaving us searching for more targets, and finding them.

Heh, Rote Kaput.  Good one!
We engaged in a CONCORD sanctioned war against "The Fendahlian collective" and their friends "Sacra Cupola."  The fights were fun, but mostly consisted of station games in either Stacmon or Dastryns, but that fit me just fine as we were able to score some good kills and the FEND gents were good or rather nice enough to continue to fight, bringing out numerous ships and hulls.  Didn't matter to me, got to fly in my Abaddon of sheer tankyness for a while, haven't been in that beast in ages!  Repairing in station costs way to much isk btw!

I am impressed with Ushwi Hobak who was apparently quad boxing against us.  he got on so many kills because he brought out a well tanked Maelstrom, plus scimitar basilisk and usually at least one other DPS ships.  We kept trying to kill him, but no luck, or at least no luck very often as he was able to tank and redock at will.  Such is the fun of station games!  In any case, props to the quad box, pretty impressive.  He wasn't so successful at keeping his fleetmates alive, so we ate them up pretty well.  Including these couple engagements, Stacmon Slaughter.  That Vagabond pilot should read my guide btw, was inside scram range from the undock of the station, paid the price.  While they were at it they provided a few lolzy killmails, like the Rapier without a Web. 

Most memorable moment goes to the pilot "losingsleep."  We had just forced their camp in stacmon to dock and killed his Raven while doing so, he left in a shuttle and returned in a Cyclone.  Johnny Cruz mentioned on vent that he was travel fitting that thing with stabs, I, still fit for station games, had two scramblers on the Abaddon, ready to pin him down.  He warps into the station again, apparently trying to either salvage or tease us with his invincibleness due to over-stabbing.  I'm pretty sure his smile dropped when my four points and Johnny's two points landed on him.  Suddenly forced to stick around landing us with a very funny killmail.

Anyways, war was soooo last week.  This week we have joined the intrepid pilots of Reaper Industries, our long-time friends, into the Rote Kapelle fold, providing a much needed boost to our EU TZ.  It's great to have them around, and RK gangs now tend to roll out of TXW on a near 23/7 basis. 

In other internal news, voting for our alliance Logo has finally been completed.  I have to say that I am sad, my personal favorite, "looking up, no RK" failed to make it into the last rounds. Though I am happy that all the back-and-forth over the logo will hopefully now be over.  I was put in charge of organizing a fair vote and getting a final result and was amazed to have it finished before Christmas 2020. 

To the left here is a sample of the winner, well close enough!  Now that the vote is over my responsibility for dealing with it also ends, horray!

So that mostly covers the last two weeks, until next time, here is looking up, no RK!  Thanks for the work Rixx Javix, very impressive!
