The Charge of the Chaos Brigade

Postby Lord Draconus » Tue 29 Oct, 2013 00:24

With apologies in advance to Alfred, Lord Tennyson. And with thanks to our friends in LOVE. We just wish we had gone to H00 earlier, instead of going to H60 first.

The Charge of the Chaos Brigade

1.
Half a parsec, half a parsec,
Half a parsec onward,
All in the system of Death
flew the last two hundred million.
"Forward, the Chaos Brigade!
"Charge for the Leviathans!" he said:
Into the system of Death
flew the last two hundred million.

2.
"Forward, the Chaos Brigade!"
Was there a man dismay'd?
Not tho' the pilots knew
Someone had blunder'd:
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die:
Into the system of Death
flew the last two hundred million.

3.
Heavy cruiser to right of them,
Dreadnought to left of them,
Leviathan in front of them
Volley'd and thunder'd;
Storm'd at with photon and shell,
Boldly they flew and well,
Into the jaws of Death,
Into the mouth of Hell
flew the last two hundred million.

4.
Flash'd all their photons bare,
Flash'd as they turn'd in air,
Shooting the cruisers there,
Charging a fleet, while
All the galaxy wonder'd:
Plunged in the ion-smoke
Right thro' the line they broke;
Lovelies and R-dogs
Reel'd from the plasma stroke
Shatter'd and sunder'd.
Then they flew back, but not
Not the last two hundred million.

5.
Heavy cruiser to right of them,
Dreadnought to left of them,
Leviathan in front of them
Volley'd and thunder'd;
Storm'd at with photon and shell,
While ship and hero fell,
They that had fought so well
Came thro' the jaws of Death
Back from the mouth of Hell,
All that was left of them,
Left of the last two hundred million.

6.
When can their glory fade?
O the wild charge they made!
All the galaxy wondered.
Honor the charge they made,
Honor the Chaos Brigade,
Noble last two hundred million.

Sorry for not using battle paste.... but I highlighted the hits.


Plus, who wouldn't want to make the following announcement on your guild board?

[quote=Bow before Lord Draconus]
They've unleashed the Kraton!!!

Cruisers and Fleet carriers? Very innovative combo. :lol:

The majority of the human population is getting less and less intelligent with each generation. We hit our peak as a species right before the internet was born. Now all the idiots of the world have the power to spread their ignorance.

Did I just see an entire guild suicide themselves (ineffectively) into a single [LOVE] player?

Well, responding to the first post, as a great general put it at the time
C’est magnifique, mais ce n’est pas la guerre: c'est de la folie ("It is magnificent, but it is not war: it is madness").


(and I didn't even need to rewrite it to fit)

+1

I'm not sure I could have dreamt of a better or more appropriate response. Leave it to lyra to bridge the game, literature and history.

Mais, il ne fallait pas le traduire, comme même....


As for the other comments.... well, you just don't get it...

No, we just didn't suicide. We stood our ground. :wink:

Which, of course, was suicidal. But we didn't suicide.

Nuance.

Using RC and FC as attacking fleet isnt suicidal.Its just stupid.
