2.6. 8002 alliance globals
Early this morning,
XF/GoD/SD attempted to raid 8002. They shipped up a team of L290
raiders and fired over 400 shots into the planet. After the raid
failed, they pirated their raid team, ensuring it will be safe until
the next attempt. Following that, KAOS/KPG decided to take advantage of
the low population of the planet and took another 300 shots at it. We
jumped them four times over the course of the day, heavily outnumbered
on each attempt, until they gave up for a bit. Both KAOS/KPG and
SD/XF/GoD will be back.
The first time, versus K/KPG, we won 17-5.
The third time, versus a combined force of K/KPG/SD/XF/GoD, we won 27-4
The fourth time, versus K/KPG/GTG, we tied at 16-16
The fifth time, versus K/KPG/GTG, we won 16-2.
involved in today's events was spectacular. You did a damn fine job
against harsh odds. Suffice to say, this is the finest team in the game
and you guys went above and beyond what anyone could have expected of
you. What happened today exemplifies everything I'm proud to see in
We're now at war with SD, XF, GoD, KAOS, KPG and GTG.
Following the events today, we're heavily outnumbered, low on turns and
cash and fighting to survive. After 700 shots, 8002's population is
dangerously low, opening us up to not only furthur attempts by
SD/XF/GoD and KAOS, but to any other alliances who would like to take
try to a shot at us while our hands are tied. The majority of the
community is solidly against us and would love to see us gangbanged by
as many alliances as possible. We are on our own.
The next week
is a matter of survival. We'll could be under seige every day, at any
hour, and most likely will be. We are going to be outnumbered in every
fight we'll need to fight. We need to find some way to shut down every
raid attempt as quickly as possible to enable the planet to regenerate
population. Another beating anything like it took today and 8002 will
be effectively lost. But if we can manage to hold on for a few more
days, we'll be in much better shape. If we can get the equivilent of
six days worth of unimpeded regeneration, the rock will be as good as
new and we'll be set to go on the offensive. Every hour that passes
without shots being fired at the planet is an hour in our favor.
imperative that we have as many people online for as long as possible
at all hours during the upcoming days. It's imperative we have as much
money in the AA in as possible to fund the reships we are going to
need. It's imperative that every single player in the alliance is
involved in defending the planet. The fact that we are outnumbered
badly means that every single Fury member is critical in this process.
We have a difficult task ahead of us, but I have faith in all of you.
This is not KAOS of 2.1 or IA of 2.3. This is Fury. We are not going to fold.
Update on our situation:
SD/XF/GoD and KAOS/GTG made additional attempts at the rock today.
Athough SD/XF/GoD initially went at it alone, eventually they started
working with KAOS/GTG again, with Ronin warbirds camping the reload
stations we were shutting down. By the end of the second marathon raid
session in as many days, there were Ronin RCs and Pheonix raiders
assisting in the raid attempts, sitting in sector with SD, XF, GoD,
KAOS, and GTG ships. The raids lasted for seven hours, from 14:00 to
Thanks to everyone who was incredible for a second day in
a row. Badly outnumbered at all times, through restocking, jumps,
and even a raid spree after it was over, we destroyed and pirated
dozens of enemy ships and made their raids as difficult as we could.
Unfortunely, despite our best efforts, the planet's population is near
critical levels. We took heavy casualties due to extreme lag during
restocking and jumping and it's not looking like we're going to be able
to hold off so many alliances for long enough for the planet's
population to recover.
Because of this, we're preparing for the
worst. [b]I want everyone on 8002 to move off the planet ASAP[/b].
Spread out, find high level ports close by to sit in, but [b]DO NOT
STACK ON THE OTHER PLANETS[/b] and do not massdock in general. I do not
want to see any of our active players offline at 8002 tomorrow.
are not giving up. We will continue to defend the planet for as long as
we can. However, barring some miracle, odds are that with enough
bombardment, eventually the planet population will reach the level
where it is incapable of sustaining itself. Once it's there, there will
be nothing we can do.
So, while it is likely we will lose our
stronghold, remember this: it's taken the total draining of several
raid teams from multiple alliances to get us to the point. It's taken
nearly every single active alliance in the game ganged up on
us, hundreds of billions of credits spent, hundreds of casualties,
piracy abuse to protect their raiders, and extreme number advantages to
push us to the edge, and even then, they've just BARELY managed to do
so. They may well be able to raid 8002, but not a single one of these
opportunistic gangbanger alliances will ever even begin to approach the
character this alliance has shown these last few days. Not even close.
they do finally take the rock, it will only be a matter of time before
we recover, and then there will be hell for them to pay. Keep active
and stay proud; this is not over by a long shot.
