You might have heard of a little system called 49-U6U is a backwards system out in 0.0 that's a gateway from Catch to Querious and 2 jumps from Delve; and AAA and goons have been knocking the shit out of each other there (with a little help from U'K).

I don't think I've been in 0.0 2 months yet and already I've managed to be in some epic epic fights even if my involvement now even worth of a footnote I was there and that's all that matters to me.
It started a few weeks ago as a but of diversionary fun against the Goonfleet and escalated into a whole storm of CTA ops (Call To Arms, the more 'serious' alliance operations) as the same day wonderful Proviblob decided they wanted to claim some systems AAA had pruned off after Dominion including SV5-8N. Now technically they were unclaimed and available but like a spoilt child we (-A- and by extension U'K) didn't want them, but then we didn't want anyone else to have them either. Especially if that someone was CVA or their pets.
So I've been running from one end of catch to the other and back again being in 1 fleet op or another sitting in support channels and guarding gates in my trusty Rupture.
This all ended Saturday night/Sunday am  when I was warping to the 49- gate in 4-07. We'd just swapped to the main operation Teamspeak and someone kicked off about noobs in bubblecamp just as I warped into a bubble. A lot of 'F' words got banded about and I MWD'd off bubble and warped back to our POS. Turns out they didnt mean me/us so I warped back to gate straight into the Goon camp and was promptly podded. Great. Waking up in V2 I got in a Rifter, thinking I could run the camp and give some fast tackle in fleet, and got back to 4-07. a fair few were still on POS and we sat waiting for someone to report no camp. About 30 minutes passed when I decided to take the initiative, HTFU up, and started making a fleet to try and bust the camp open instead. Someone in fleet said they FC'd regularly so I passed the Op to them and continued waiting as he sorted out warp-ins and intel and it was about then that Teamspeak kicked off again with everyone crashing. 1300 people in 49- local and the server had died a horrible death. It was 3am and I went to bed (I'm not that hardcore).

Goons have maintained a pretty hefty camp in 4-07 and the Provis have been camping HED on a daily basis so travel outside of Catch can be a bit risky but I had a few presents waiting in Agil so before downtime yesterday I made a run for it.
I can now fly a Stealth Bomber, I feel like a real Ushra'Khan now. I even dropped a bomb on the Provi gate camp in HED but killed nothing. I lived that's the main thing.

Things I learnt
0.0 warfare is a lot of waiting about then lag.
Fighting for Sovereignty means statying up late and being tired.
Goons like camping and so does Provi. I need more gate bookmarks.
Stealth Bombers weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
