The Black Hawks

Hereby

Welcome you, Reader

To a pub tale like no other

Sit down, and buckle up

It's time for

The Spicy McHaggis Syg

Image

I'll tell you a story, believe me it's true
A tale you'd best hope never happens to you; old Syggy McHaggis
How he met his fate; you I can save, but for him it's too late!

Syggy was big, burly and strong his pipes were gigantic
And so was his *******! from region to region running around
Looking for targs over four hundred 'round.

One night at the pub a targ caught his eye; big as a house,
Just the right size! The broad was enormous,
Stacked to the hilt; Syggy soon noticed a bulge in his kilt.

The piper delivered his best trigger line; thought to himself
"This beast is all mine!" The portly young region could stand for no more
Grabbed the spyglass sheet and went for the score.

They got to the raid chat and dimmed all the lights
Syggy was in for one hell of a night. He said radio silence,
jump when I say go, "But Mr. Mchaggis, I've only just met you!!"

By now he saw double through his drunken eyes -
Neither had passwords or need for some spies. He came to his sense
Thought to himself, "At this time of night I won't find nothing else!" He took off his pants;

The warning went off, they pulled out the orders and started to jump, the fendas weren't there
the update fell square, they raided the region and hit it I swear!
Three updates a day, he'll raid 'til he dies Syggy McHaggis, one hell of a guy!





When I sat down at my desk tonight, I knew something was up. I could feel it in in my Rose Tattoo. It wasn't long before The Sygian walked in the door, back and ready to party. We decided if we were going out, then we were Going Out In Style. Syg asked where we should go, and I suggested we head up to The State of Massachusetts. Syg said sure, so we hopped on The Wild Rover and went Shipping Up To Boston together, just us two. Lo and behold, we made it - and in Boston, we had quite a party! Watch out everyone: The Boys Are Back.

Welcome back to action, Syg.

-Souls
and gooooooo Sox!

The mistake you’re making is simple: we’re actually celebrating Sygian’s return. Boston was a convenient avenue through which to combine that goal with my irregularly surfacing but deep-seeded love for the Dropkick Murphies.

However, if Boston means that much to you, well, first off feel free to celebrate the region specifically being raided, but secondly, wow, I’m glad for them - it brings the total number of people that cares about that liberated, empty, tag-pit up to two! You, hypothetically, and the one dude who keeps posting that dispatch on the RMB about how defenders ruined the region!

Just calling your 'celebration' out for what it is, a one-hit tag raid - and a slightly embarrassing sign of what the Black Hawks has become

At least more people care about Boston than apparently cared enough to come out and raid with Sygian :unsure: . "We're" celebrating is a bit too plural I'm afraid...

And more people care for Boston than apparently caring enough to chase Souls and Syg.

Could this possibly have anything to do with the large anti-fascist op in which several TBH members and several defending orgs participated, tying them up for that jump?

...nah, must be a slightly embarrassing sign of what defenderdom has become.

As a side note, nice report. Good to see Syg doing stuff. :)

I guess it just depends on perspective. Back in the day it took most of us Hawks to rile some natives up, but this time it only took two. Just a sign of what we’ve become. :blush:

Tell the one where the defenders did five operations the same update, or the one where the defenders kept TBH to 2 successes in 19 jumps at the next major update...

Plenty of them on the anti-fash operation, didn't stop 16 of them updating last update.

Try again... actually please don't waste my time

Raider region with long history of not doing ops with defenders doesn't do an op with defenders.
