Details

1st Pocket

Attacking Group 1 has a chance to aggro Group 2. Attacking Group 3 will aggro Group 2. Destroying any of the triggers will spawn Reinforcements. Avoid triggering reinforcements too early as it includes more warp disruption and heavy dps.

The acceleration gate is not locked, and can be activated at any time. However, note that the acceleration gate cannot be used while warp disrupted.

Blitz

In the first and second pockets, ignore all hostile targets and proceed through the acceleration gates. Note that the gates cannot be activated while warp disrupted, so it may be necessary to destroy any disrupting frigates before activating the gates. Upon entering the third pocket, destroy Group 2 to complete the mission.

Killing only group 2 wasn't enough last time. Maybe try only killing group 1? Overall check that your mission is checked before you warp off.
