Class 4 Fun! Empty

Well, last night was a doozy! We had a decent sized group online and a Class 4 Wormhole with 7 Sleeper sites, 2 active Towers but no active ships; and it was right next door! We put together a fleet of Battleships and 2 Logistics and jumped in head first, as it were. By and large, it was quite a successful Op, to the tune of some 450+ million ISK in Sleeper loot. We did learn a few lessons along the way.

First, we've gotten used to close in work with the Sleepers in C1-C3 Wormholes. In the C4 the Sleepers were routinely outside of targeting range with no fast closure possible (unless the Sleepers did the closing) and we, by and large, had short-range weapons making the sites take longer than was necessary. I have a post in Ship Fits to address this.

Second, we learned some lessons about Fleet Command, calling targets, and practical use of the Overview and Fleet windows. Those lessons will be gathered and guides posted soon to walk everyone through the set up and use of such tools as "Tagging" for target selection.

Great job last night!!

Oh, and one personal note and lesson as the evening's Logi pilot. I had several instances where the Sleepers got ahead of me and my reppers and one occasion where Kayben got into armor. These were pretty much all due to the view I had selected of the battle scene. There were areas where the site was so bright I could not see the green activation line on the reppers and could not tell that the wrong ships were still targeted. I found that, if I adjusted my view to look straight up or behind the site my view of my instruments was much better. Just a note for next time or to help the next guy running Logistics.

Thanks, all.

Yes, Lot's of fun. The total haul for the items sold was 447,077,380 ISK. 1/2 of that went to corp and the other half was split between the members that participated.

On a funny note, I had fitted one of my Maelstroms inproperly and Dorrin was using it. It had the medium guns on it and Dorrin could not get close enough to inflict much damage on the sleepers before the rest of us took them out.

That being said, Yes I have changed that fit for the next go around :-)
