Y-MPWL system, Providence region. On the 16th of May, the Station fell to Northern Coalition(dot) [NC] forces, marking it the first system to be lost in the conflict between [NC] and Providence Bloc.
[NC] forces had a 100 pilot Tempest Fleet Issue Battleship fleet with Triage Archon Carrier support and a Super Capital wing waiting on standby. The fleet was waiting on the D61A-G gate at optimal range.
Providence Bloc forces decided not to engage the [NC] fleet, as there seemed no chance of victory, especially considering [NC]'s repeated Super Capital usage during previous fights. Thus, Providence Bloc chose instead to reinforce an [NC] tower in the 5IO8-U system, which was used by [NC] as a Super Capital middle point for their campaign in the Providence region.
With Providence Bloc choosing not to show, [NC] forces took the station and the system unopposed.
As the war continues to escalate, and with the first system taken, [NC]'s claims of a "Fun Conflict" seem to ring hollow.
