[00:00:00] Asher Elias: All right. Hello. Hello. Quiet, Alterari. I know you're trying to trigger me.

[00:00:05] Apple Pear: Yeah, Alterari will have very important news in two weeks or so.

[00:00:08] Asher Elias: It should be a pretty light fireside this week. We don't have that much stuff going on, but so I'll try to get you guys out here pretty quick. Let me go through what I got to talk about.

Actually, Zintage, do you want to talk about the Senda thing? Yeah, why don't you talk about it if you're here?

[00:00:20] Zintage Enaka: Yeah, I can talk about it. So, we've already done it a little bit, but we're doing... It's not... Let me start with... This is not Horde's Poch-dom. We've started a pseudo deployment kind of thing, where we have Void Rays and Hurricanes already in Senda, and we're leaving them there.

And basically, you just... It's completely optional. You'll see strat pings for it, but you jump clone, not jump clone, you filament into Pachvin, come to Senda, and basically we've been trying to punch down on Horde and Fraternity ratting fleets and other things.

[00:01:02] Asher Elias: Yeah, so it's like an optional deployment. You guys can go there, have some fights and it's something to do.

What times are we talking about here mostly, Zintage?

[00:01:08] Zintage Enaka: It's mostly been US and CNTZ, but we have... I've done a EU fleet yesterday, so, but it's mainly US and CNTZ.

[00:01:18] Asher Elias: And for people who are like a little uncomfortable about how to get to Pochven, and it was like, you know, the first time you do it seems a little more confusing than it actually is.

Why don't you give the 30 second rundown of how you do it?

[00:01:28] Zintage Enaka: Yeah, so it's really easy. You just go to the market, buy a filament called a Krai Veles 5. You grab that, you put it in a shuttle, you make yourself a fleet, warp to a moon, use it, and that will filament you into Pochven, and then you just go gate to gate to Senda.

[00:01:45] Asher Elias: Yeah, and at worst case, you're like six jumps away, right? Yeah. So it's Krai Veles is the filament Julius, I'll type it out.

[00:01:52] Zintage Enaka: I have a whole deployment, what the fuck, post, I'll just post that.

[00:01:57] Asher Elias: Oh, yeah, it's super simple to do. It's one of those, go ahead.

[00:01:59] Snipereagle1: Oh, I was gonna say, yeah, so we've got Doctrine ships seeded that way you can buy a ship, you can leave it in there.

We've done some main fleets to Pochven before, and the thing that's always a ball ache for you guys is You know, you get to the end of the fleet, and you're like, Cool, now my Hurricane is in here, or my Flycatcher, or whatever. So you can, you can buy those, and just keep them in the station, and then have a ship to... to use in there, and then you can just pod home at the end of the fleet.

[00:02:24] Zintage Enaka: It would help if I posted the right one. Yeah.

[00:02:27] Asher Elias: Heh heh heh heh heh. Good job. Illum leaker. Good job.

[00:02:32] Zintage Enaka: That one.

[00:02:33] Asher Elias: There we go. Well done. Alright. So, that's like an optional fun deployment. I've heard some good fights been going on there, so that's good.

Update, we are adding Harpies as an option. These basically are plug and play, just like Void Rays into Flycatcher Fleet. So it's literally just changing the DPS ship. I know people like flying Harpies. So you can just, it's just literally get a Harpy. All the support ships are the exact same for the Flycatcher Fleet.

So you don't need anything else. Same exact thing. Harpies are still good at harping you know, they have instant application of damage, they're good against certain stuff, and so they'll be useful in home defense scenarios, small gangs, stuff like that. Yes, there you go.

[00:03:11] Snipereagle1: Darth, on the, on the Senda stuff, it's, it's basically just dependent on hostile activity, right?

Like... We're pinging fleets to their, to counter other fleets that are out, so. It's not that there's nothing in EU ever, it's just there's a lot less hostile activity in EU. Doesn't mean it won't happen though.

[00:03:28] Asher Elias: Alright Dread SRP update, we have 12 left we had a little snafu where basically, there were like 60 new orders, and that means that people who were trying to you know, I want to buy new Dread, and they got filled first.

So we have a bunch of new people with new Dreads, we have 12 left for SRP. So as soon as those are out of the oven, you'll be getting your SRP. So if you haven't got yours, it should be coming out very soon. And then we'll be totally done with the dread SRP, and our upgrades. All right, and let's see, today, 2100 and 2200, we have fort timers that are possibly going to be in contention.

So just if you are around, watch for pings before, it's around 2000 maybe. And 2100 we might potentially counter form if they do so. Will they actually show up if we form? We will show up if they form more Darth. And then lastly, last thing I want to talk about is, we're looking it looks like a big October offensive will happen week, the first week of October, week one.

The reason being that is like a big Chinese holiday week. So they can you know, there'll be at home, they can alarm clock into EU time zone. So we expect there's a potential for many, many fights the first week of October. So if you guys are looking to mark something on your calendar first week of October, make sure you are paying attention, you're around.

That's the most likely week for a lot of continuous action, potentially. We are defending, helping defend, so it's up to them, but that is, there is a much higher chance than, than any time else. Are we going to do a move up to bring more Dreads north? We've done that several times and we will continue to do so, yes.

[00:05:02] Apple Pear: Maybe next week or the week after. Next week is, is Fanfest week, so probably not next week, but the week after that we're doing, probably doing move ups. We wanted to make sure all the Dread SRP was done before we do another move up, otherwise we keep going, so that's probably in two weeks.

[00:05:16] Asher Elias: All right so that is everything I want to talk about.

And. Hey, Director, so I missed anything you guys want to pipe up before I say goodbye?

[00:05:24] Apple Pear: Pipe.

[00:05:25] Asher Elias: Okay. All right. That's the nine minute fireside. Guys, thank you guys for showing up. I will see you next week. You guys have a lovely week.
