ERVK-P System, Catch region. In the early hours of the 20th of July, a Tower belonging to Curatores Veritatis Alliance is destroyed along with a relief force by a fleet belonging to HERO Coalition.
The tower may have been a remnant of when the system was under the control of the Providence Bloc, before Darkness of Despair Alliance wrestled control of it in a bloody struggle in September of 2013. Since then the system has changed hands, with HERO Coalition taking sovereignty over it after the collapse of Darkness of Despair Alliance. Though there were talks of the system being returned to Providence Bloc peacefully, the reinforcement of the remaining Providence Bloc infrastructure would indicate otherwise.
As the tower was exiting reinforced mode at 8:00 EVE Standard Time, a relief force of forty pilots, mostly in Battleship class ships was organized by Providence Bloc, and made its way to the system in haste, only to encounter an overwhelmingly strong HERO Coalition fleet, some hundred pilots strong. Reinforcing that fleet was a HERO Coalition Capital ship wing, comprising of five Dreadnaughts and three Carrier class Capital ships, all present on and around the tower.
Providence Bloc forces made an attempt to fight the HERO Coalition fleet on the tower, but suffered significant losses, losing their entire logistics wing as well as a quarter of their fleet before being forced to retreat. With Providence Bloc forces extracting, HERO Coalition continued unmolested in the removal of the tower and its modules.
