Yarr Collective moved to Egghelende a few months ago and it seemed like a fun stop. Our major problem was Bane alliance but they usually didn't come in system in big numbers and seemed content to pick off corp members who were sloppy on gate camps or while sitting still at a safe. It was actually a good thing because it kept us on our toes.
Then the faction warfare corp Quantum Cats moved in and things got more difficult. While Q-Cats were especially aggressive, they had numbers. Combine them with Bane and we were usually outnumbered 3 to 1 in Egg. This was frustrating but it was also good for the corp. It got us roaming more and we began getting more kills outside of our home system. I figured Q-Cats were only going to be around for a short period of time then we would go back to just dealing with Bane.
Then Pandemic Legion moved in next door in Amamake. I heard that Q-Cats got their asses waxed by them and suddenly Q-Cats was nowhere to be found. I guess they didn't want to deal with being hotdropped every engagement. So it's back to dealing with Bane. Things are back to normal for us in Egg with the exception that PL members will sometimes stick their heads in Egg. When that happens, things get interesting.
We were on a short BC roam the other day in Auga when we came across a PL Hyperion baiting on the Amamake belt. I put a cloaky in system and saw a Rokh and Abbadon on the other side. There was no way we were going to engage PL in their home system so we headed back towards Egg. As we jumped in Siseide I noticed the PL battle ships jumping into Auga and giving chase. I had everyone jump into Egg and dock up with the intent of getting some bigger ships in case they came into system.
I put a cloaky in Egg on the Siseide gate and waited. A hurricane jumped into Egg and a PL rapier and Falcon uncloaked. The PL battleships jumped in and engaged the Hurricane and started taking gate guns. We all undocked and warped to the gate and jumped on them. A few off us had reshipped to Tempests so we had decent firepower plus we had a Falcon come with us. The Rapier bugged out and we were able to kill all three PL battleships while only losing a battlecruiser. It was a great fight and I felt pretty good about it. However I knew that we would be seeing more of PL.
They came back the next night with a bigger battleship fleet and killed a couple of our battlecruisers so I figured it was over but the following night there was an Exequror Navy Issue sitting on top station and one of us engaged it. The rest of our gang warped in to
It's going to be interesting to see if this going to be a common thing with PL. I wonder how long they are staying.
