[Video] Of Fools and Foes (lowsec battleship pvp)

Once again, half a year has passed since I posted a video, and while my pvp activity has waned in the meantime, I still hope you'll find some of the fights I had entertaining. They are all with T3 linked overtanked battleships, mostly in lowsec, mostly with gate guns on my side, some solo, some duo and one RR clip. Do not expect any surprising stunts, it's more solid fighting than anything genius. Shield tanked fights are with 5x low grade crystal + kmb-50.

Also, the editing is a bit rushed since I leave tomorrow for a medium break and wanted to get the thing out before that, so I apologize for some smallish mistakes and the lack of commentary.

Without further ado:

Special thanks got to Alex Stokes, my sponsor who runs "Strich's Liquidity Service". Part of that is his Roadrunner Lottery, check it out!

PS It's really annoying if you are a bad nanoer anyway and get bad luck on top of that. If I make another movie, I hope it will have non-stationary fights again.

Download faster!!!

Things I wasn't expecting:
Adrestia, indeed that whole intro section
Robbie Williams

Things I was expecting:
BS Good Fights

Inspiring as ever!
And congrats on the wedding!

You so could have tackled that Ashimmu. P

As a purely visual thing, I'll prefer to imagine your gatehumping pirate faction BS is like some caged/leashed animal striving to lash out and show off that improved pace, rather than stuck on the gate model or adrift in the watery physics engine. Lol

Not to detract, but Who.T.F. is HooKz and why does he have that 250mm Railgun Adrestia with on-grid supercap support Roll

That was a fantastic watch.

While it is true, brawling in battleships has been done many times before, I find there is still a lot of enjoyment that can be had from watching those who do it well. And you are certainly one of the best. Consistently impressive odds, a number of close fights and lots of explosions. I think this is definitely one of your best videos to date and is really inspiring me to fit up some more battleships :)

That Maelstrom!

Excellent stuff as always, mate. Some brilliant fights, great music, and back to doing what you do best.

A very solid movie.

Judging by it alone, you'll never think of how PvP has changed since 2009 Big smile
Oh, and finally someone decided to actually fit a web onto an overtanked mael which surely can spare a mid. I can't believe my eyes seeing people hitting and kiling stuff with just scram alone.

Yes, awesome. Will DL ASAP.

Was pretty damn good. Not sure if it was great, but definitely the best that's been on here in quite some time.

I loved it. Probably my favorite you've made (maybe tied with There be Dragons) - fights were terrific and it was extremely watchable. Superb piloting. Was surprised how much I liked the music, and the whole thing flowed well. The fights were actually pretty varied considering they're all the same 'type', and the Vindi stuff was great! Your tank got pushed around a bit and I think both times you left when you pretty much had to. I think the video's only problem is the limitation of brawling... seems to indeed be a dying art.
