Weekend minipost: goons didn't want those titans anyway

As we know, NPC null pirates only catch ratters and can't hit alliance forces. Since what the Goon propagandists say on forums is always true, these were ratting ships: Unfortunately all battle report tools bugged (due to zkillboard bug), so I had to fish these out manually.
Anyway, it was a good day for BL and Fountain core.

Oh, and some tears:
(3:54:00 PM) the_mittani: rushing the convoy last weekend is no excuse for this:
(3:54:04 PM) blawrf_mctaggart: i'm unfortunately totally disconnected
(3:57:34 PM) blawrf_mctaggart: this fucking infuriates me
(3:57:41 PM) the_mittani: don't be mad
(3:57:47 PM) blawrf_mctaggart: i'm mad because this is a recurring problem
(3:57:58 PM) the_mittani: one, the losses are nbd, two, it identified a fuckup by relying and trusting someone to coord that shouldn't be
(3:58:16 PM) blawrf_mctaggart: no matter how many times i try to educate them or have them think logically and take it all in, they continue to fail
(3:58:23 PM) the_mittani: super move ops always require the most exacting intel and support and fc engagement, even if it's just one bloc fc with a proper guard group this wouldn't happen
(3:58:36 PM) blawrf_mctaggart: it's such a gigantic org failure precisely because of that
(3:58:42 PM) blawrf_mctaggart: it was a super move op guarded by 15 harpies and a dominix
(3:59:28 PM) the_mittani: 10 domis! you don't need logi with 10 domis~
(3:59:39 PM) the_mittani: it's funny dude, just look at the image and try to see the absurdity of it
(3:59:47 PM) the_mittani: it's not even a 'bad harpy fleet' which is what i thought it was at first
(3:59:51 PM) blawrf_mctaggart: i saw the absurdity the first few times this happened
(3:59:54 PM) the_mittani: it's a diceroll randomized assortment of hulls
(3:59:59 PM) the_mittani: i've never seen this before dude
(3:59:59 PM) blawrf_mctaggart: just sick of the moment i leave the roost, they start to shit on eachother
(4:00:02 PM) the_mittani: this is special
(4:00:05 PM) the_mittani: like
(4:00:22 PM) the_mittani: this is a unique moment, i've never seen supers escorted with a 'fleet' like this
(4:04:09 PM) the_mittani: so look, the reason why i'm just like 'what' on this is that a normal org failure will be something like a shitty harpy fleet doing this - this is exceptional because even our lowest-tier skirmish fcs simply do not undock a fleet like this 'escort' fleet even for their roams, without supers or even carriers
(4:05:31 PM) the_mittani: when complex systems break down normally there's a whole rash of issues, not just one, so here we have
*no gia linkup
*no oversight from usually aware folks (and there are teams of people who could have noticed this, but didn't
*low-skill subcap fc
The really big !!!!! is all of the above + the 'fleet' was literally not even a fleet by the most basic standards of our org across the coalition even at the lowest level

Was a good trap and we jumped into it.

good to see the super jump range nerfs finally making harassment of supply lines an effective tactic.

when moving supers becomes routine grunt work to feed the front lines this kind of thing happens.

the CFC rulership will implement a proper fleet escort doctrine which will increase pilot hours required for these move ops. grunts will have to spend time not having fun fights. grunts will begin to bleed from the organisation. CFC will fail.
