Top 03 [TOT: 5.161.918.000] Venom [FEW] vs. Commander Vauss [UST] (A: 0, D: 5.161.918.000)

  • Time for a new Top 10 entry.

    Last week, one of my spy balloons noticed Vauss' fleet chilling on one of his moons. I immediately launched.. but he came back online and sent his fleet packing. The deut bill sucked but it was worth a shot. Few days later, even though his fleet was out of sight, it was still on my mind. I watched and made a plan. Out of 12 moons, I selected 3 good candidates and blew them up... lost a few RIPs in the process but that's part of the game. Much to my frustration, I did not see his main fleet on any of my phalanxes. What a bummer. I could have launched on his expeditions fleets, however those were not enough to get my interest. A short moment later, Vauss was back online. I decided to not give up. I identified two more potential moons where his fleet was likely flying to. Then, after putting pieces together, I finally narrowed it down to a single one and launched a new MD mission while he was online. Vauss insta built enough ships to defend his moon and tear my RIPs apart. This is when Emnoxage makes his glorious entry into this story. Emnoxage sent his BCs to safely escort my RIPs directly to Vauss' moon. At the same time, Vauss started to build a lot of defense on his planet. That was a very good sign and confirmed that I was on the right path. Vauss abandoned his plans of defending his moon. The MD mission was a success. Again, I lost a bunch of RIPs but it was worth the risk and .. the reward. Bingo! Vauss' fleet was now visible and trapped. Move forward to the next day, a second after its return, Vauss' fleet was destroyed and recycled. Big thank you again to Emnoxage, without who this hit would probably have been too risky.

    Enjoy the show :popcorn:

  • Determination wins here! Absolutely love it and glad I could provide in some support to escort those RIPs. It was awesome to watch it take place and a well deserved reward. Beautiful Top 10 hit.

    Vauss, glotr.

  • Well, I hate to see it on an alliance member but this does go to show that determination will pay off. Also, 5000 RIPs?!? DANG! I know who NOT to tick off around here lol

    This should also serve as a wake up call to many about changing up their FS method(s) since moons can always get popped.

    FR Vauss! Let us know if you need anything


    great work Venom. Solid Profits

    Vauss, sincerely, I hope you rebuild. You've been great in UST as far as i can tell and a core member of this uni.

    rebuild and make venom shake in his boots too ;) Retiree.
    Noobin around in a universe near you...
