HYDRA apparently ganked No Holes Barred farming site escalations.
NHB fielded 4 caps and 1 subcap webber. (two players with their alt army?)  We see this farming style happen all the time, usually when we only have one or two pilots available and not nearly enough mass available to bring the requisite force. This one ended differently.  

Ships Lost: 5 ships, 4 capsules
ISK Lost: 22,188,275,022.38

Based on the HYDRA composition, it looks like they already had significant assets parked there from an eviction two weeks earlier.

Kind of begs the question, why didn't Hydra just defend their POS in the first place?

You can bet that the dreads were proper farm-fit before HYDRA showed up, and they used the carriers to refit.

They just seem to have refit badly, and maybe didn't have "proper" refits in the carrier fleet hangar?

They have to use Chimeras to keep that webber alive (if you have to wait to end of cycle to land the rep, armor rapiers/huginns are more likely to die).  All else follows from there.

This is my obligatory Stupid Bill Is Stupid post.

Brisket has been introduced to smoke, behind closed door. Let's give those two a few hours to get to know each other better...

Confessing that I pulled out a Falcon last night when reshipping during a big fight, landed jams but didn't recognize it with the UI. 

I was VERY confused. Afterword I remarked on Mumble that I don't seem to have landed any jams the whole fight and someone explained to me that the UI for it changed and on reviewing FRAPS it looks like Retribution ECM nerf didn't utterly destroy it as a mechanic.

The UI, however, is quite subtle now.  Going to take some getting used to.

Yeah, it works out to be a small drop in effectiveness, but I can live with that.

Missing a few friends at dinner tonight, but it is pretty damn spectacular to be me, surrounded by awesomeness. Happy extra-Sunday!

Brisket was not up to my fondest hopes but it was tasty. Need more practice and wouldn't hurt to start another hour earlier.
