Floti Bjóða – Clusterfuck Roam I

With Fifth on board running as a Scout I FC’d my first Fleet last night. Took a few of the crew out for a Null-Sec roam in T1 Frigate, mainly Tristans and Breachers, we did have support from a Sabre and an Ares.

I was pleased with my confidence overall, I felt that I conveyed orders in a clear and decisive manner, kept the fleet maneuvering together and other than a few moments of direction decision hesitation I felt like the Fleet ran quite smoothly… and most importantly we didn’t lose anyone!

We did manage to get a few kills. Caught a Vexor Navy Issue coming through a gate, while scouting Fifth got attacked by a Manticore just after jumping into a system and we took advantage of his aggression timer and then on the way home we took out an ESS just because.

Am looking forward to getting another Fleet out soon, will stick with the small, cheap ships for now though – losing them isn’t such a big deal.

Unconventional… that was the thought behind this fit – I’ve not yet taken her out for a spin but I’m hoping to soon.

Messing around with some more T1 Frigate Fleet Doctrines using the Tristan and Atron this time. This one I’m naming the “Dengue Fever Fleet”.

Now… while a T1 Frigate Fleet isn’t particularly viable for most applications what I like about them is that the hulls are inexpensive, they are easy to train into, they’re not a huge loss to any capsuleer if the ship goes down and they are just plain fun to fly.

Where necessary Meta 4 any modules for those without the appropriate T2 skills.

If you were looking for a little extra survivability in the Tristan you could drop one of the DDAs and replaces it with a DCII which will add approx an extra 600 ehp but it also loses about 20 dps. I will have to look into the mechanics of assigning drones, my thought would be to have all the Tristans’ hold out at range with their drones assigned to assist the Tackle Atrons but I’m not very familiar with the assist mechanics and don’t know how well this would work?
