We started off from D-I with direction of vale/tribute. I wanted to get us into a fight so via some waypoints we were heading to M-O. Fleet comp was good with 7 T3 destroyers, 4 t1 frig logi, interceptor and boosts. Didnt have a heretic, which all good inquisitions need. Will bring that next time.
Going along the route was fairly uneventful as we were moving fast and not really giving the locals a lot of time to form up while we were in the pipes in Vale and Tribute. We saw some people following us as we were getting closer to M-O but we pushed on and warped to zero on Taisy gate which meant we landed in a bubble. Seconds after we landed a Prowler landed next to us and decloaked. We scrammed, webbed and just killed him quickly and then we realised. It had LOADS of goodies.
We took what we could, but there were some containers which we didnt have room for. As we were scrambling to get a hauler in to take it to safety Co2 landed at range on the gate. They maneuvered around some and we countermoved with both sides trying to get their optimal engagement side. We moved up and down from pings, which worked well until yours truly fucked up a fleet warp and 2 of our logi got caught.
We warped back to them but they had already taken too much damage so we couldnt hold our reps. It was a shame as they were at 0 with us which is what the fleet is designed to be. We targeted one of their scythes but couldnt break tank, switched to a Jackdaw which went low shields before their reps caught it. Lost 3x Inquisitor and 2x confessor at the gate.
Most of the rest of our t3's managed to get off field. But we still knew there was all that loot in the prowler wreck. I sent one of my alts from Jita in a Viator and with some creative trading via corp bookmarks he got pings on the Taisy gate in M-O, warped to the wreck and scooped all the goodies and brought it safely back to Jita. When sold it totalled at 5,4B in loot which we got out.
All members got 100M bonus for joining and all those who lost ships got back what they paid to ROC for them. So a roam with losses where all made isk is pretty cool.
What was good in the roam was fleet comms, movement discipline going to M-O and our initial movement on the gate was tight but good.
What was bad was yours truly fucking up the fleet warp as that would have allowed our logi to rep fully and I honestly think we could have won the fight outnumbered 2-1. My confessor took over 12K damage, and while reps were holding they couldnt break the tank with their jackdaws and worms. Also managed to have a 500M confessor lossmail since I had a lot of Strategic cruiser subsystems in my cargohold(none of it dropped though).
We had a great time, was a good bunch to fly with and will do it again. Look forward to more Spanish Inquisition fleets going forward.
