The Clearing of Beke

Our contract against Crest Tech (now Pirate Coalition proper) has reached its 3rd week now. Overall I am very pleased by the performance of the OEC and its active members. We are finally losing some ships in combat due to taking more risks, but our adversaries refuse to fight anywhere but hugged to a station or Jumpgate. I guess I really cannot blame them as it affords the safety blanket of escape. We have improved our tactics to combat this, but in the process lost far more ships than expected (and one to a CONCORD cloaking firmware bug). The contract client is extremely pleased by the performance. The jumpgates are clear when we go on patrol, and none of the client’s members has lost a ship since entering into the contract. We hope to keep it that way.

As for combat bonuses…we are doing very well in that department. Hopefully we can continue to perform well to increase our contract payouts…but the guys know that tough times will be ahead of us if Crest Tech actually wants a straight up fight. I do find it odd however that they refuse to engage us in fleet to fleet combat…instead just hitting us here and there. Maybe they are not as coordinated as I planned? They seem to use a lot of retainer pilots (read: alts) in the systems we operate in, and we have done the same in return.

As I am about to post this, a OEC report comes across stating another Crest Tech battleship loss. Another Raven goes down…finally warp scrammed into submission. While no "big deal" to larger corporations, getting battleship kills is a great accomplishment to smaller merc corps going up against well known pirates. Nice work guys.

=) Crest Tech is a very smart group, Very well organized and very well cordinated. HOWEVER; we choose our fights, and will do our best not to be JUMPED by ECM Boats where we cannot fight back. We only come to beke to pirate, and OEC Should really consider comming to OUR Space to fight. On another note, Your losses are greater than ours in isk. Shame you do not come where were from guys =) We could have a great time.

We have been even numbers many many times in Beke, but you mainly refuse to attack...or when you do, scurry off once your tank is broke. I think it is clear that we own Beke at the moment, but you have an entire alliance to change that situation. We do not have jumpclones down to Fountain, nor do we want to go fight BoB and everyone else down there.

As far as losses, thats pretty funny coming from you since you dont even post your corp losses on your own killboard ;)

BY THE WAY! If your curious about kills and such maby you can check our board.. All OEC kills should be posted on there, Maby this will help figure out how well your doing.

Karash, you failed to mention how OEC members stab up, snipe, and warp out if your tanks are broken :(
