==Blitz:==
Kill all ships in Group 4 and all spawns.
Note: This only works as a blitz in that it makes the Cosmic Anomaly despawn so you will have to be probed for a neutral to warp to you.

==Tips:==
- To lower the damage kill all but one ship in each of the 4 initial spawns then work on 1 group at a time.
- Matriarch Alvus hit mainly Therm, while Alvus Queen hit EM/Ex; prioritize kills according to your tank.
- If you have an extra 20gj/s cap stability it is not necessary to kill the neuting tower.

Bounty: ~27-32mil isk depending on spawn composition
