About my blog:

Hey all, right at the start iam gonna tell you, many of you wont like my posting. Or poasting whatever. I am currently in NPC space in Curse, so i dont lick anyones boots and if you suck, youll know it. And if you dont, maybe as well.

This should be a very subjective blog, with my views not yours, so if you want to flame me, iam ready for it and you can spam my mailbox or comments (till Lion gets bored of me or you). PS. If you think my english sucks, good for me and bad for you. As i think its allright 😀

South war sides analysis
So today i wanted to look at the south. Stainwagon fights here with the (cant find propper name for now – task for next blog) southern coalition, or PL kids, INIT.,DT,CO2,ED supported by SYSK and IT. Both sides had their victories and losses. AAA got embarassed hard after their power talks and ended like hobo in Stain. Dead Terrorists came with their diplomat to conquer the universe only to realized they are really shit unless supported and hand lead by Ev0ke or Pandemic Legion. Circle of Two seem to be quit nonexistant, outside of welping supercarrier or titan here and there.

Stain Empire and C0ven with Initiative seem sofar most competent bunch, however they have theirs welps as well. Plus Initiative considering what they are feels lil bit too arrogant atm, as they got empty space handed from failing boat alliance. Red Overlord, RMT kings or whatever seems on same level as White Noise. Add numbers but money makes you not better.

SYSK is the bad boy – irony out – i dont really know if they do it for lulz or they really think they can accomplish anything outside of killing the alliance. Loosing their “best” FC and dying en masse with some 150:2 or 90:0 results cant really help your morale. Plus its probably the 1258th campaign announced with big words that ends by mails about people not ratting in Period Basis.

Timezone war
With the timezone war, it should be pretty equal, as Stainwagon control EURO, and South group US tz.
This makes it extremely hard for any side to make progress. It goes as far as members of DT or CO2 being told not to fight or escalate fights in EURO tz and better stay docked. Which might work but it sucks for the players. Why would you stick with a alliance that tells you to stay docked……

Dead Terrorists are closer to the death every day….lets look at one graph.

This means what…some say the weak ones get out, but fleet size going down as well once you look at dt killboard. So getting space means people leaving the boat and people not xing up. I will say, this is not waht the membership wants maybe the leadership. But as DT was known as lethal and pvpv alliance in Cloud Ring and beyond, now they are seen as weak shit. And this proves it, as so many people leaving cant be right.

Lets look at the other side, AAA:

We see losing space meant many people got out as well, however now it goes slowly up as well. That would suggest AAA low was reached and they got their shit sorted. Still dont think very much about AAA, as they didnt accomplish anything worth in game outside of Evil Thugs yelling. however atm they seem 200% better than their counterpart DT.

Persistance
I think persistance is the key here. The sov mechanism favors those that will make bazillion of attempts and pretty much tire the enemy out. What seems to be the DT side as they keep losing members, fleets getting less and less despite calling help from all sides. I think we could say, that atm the the Stainwagon has better cards, maby because they fight what they believe is their home. While the new tenants, CO2 and DT just came to try to have sov, but sofar havent been able to prove they are serious pvp groups, that should stay there as well.

Support
As long as INIT and IT supports them, things will be stalemate, but the big question is. How long do you support incompetent people like and how long you willing to send fleet after fleet to keep em alive. If they cant get their shit together and get out of the state support position, at some day, which might not be very distant in the future, INIT and IT will just say, fuck you, and absorb some corps to their renter/pet outlets (INIT Mercs have like several former DT corps running for hills).

I know some DT members and some former DT members and they are disgusted that these things have happened. First allowing Horus to come iwth his megalomaniac vision, that kicking him without knowing what to do. Paying PL is one thing, fighting the other. The loyalty that some of these people have is staggering, but even to them, it seems things are wrong atm.

Ending
I dont particurarly care if Stainwagon wins or loses, they suck as well in many aspects. RMT one of them (have no proof so ill stfu but i know what i know, russians:p). But i respect when someone works consistently with the same blues and has a goal. Unlike CO2 that accepted space from DK, and than told them to gtfo, and DT lick White Noise legs but thrash them internally hard. Loyalty can be only build up slowly, but lost very fast.

SO peace out, and if you think this sucks, well see you in some time.

    Whole ROL have never been rmt kings. There was a person who hired NYNC and few other ppl for real money (2000 euro net per month) to run the alli. Then that person left the game and another person now in White Noise hires NYNC for real money, NYNC leaves ROL joins WN takes with him all his ppl who work for real money and RMT (rus-1-ukr corp now in WN), and now plays for WN payed by that WN person. Thats all the story about “ROL the RMT kings”.

    i love people coming and commenting on something they simply know nothing about, well done dutchy all you proved is that you read the frankly baised news thats come from here and other sites that rely solely on who can bothered to post….

    for the record DT never paid PL.. that fee came from elsewhere, and the “vision” supplied by Rmfhorus wasn’t his alone so to say that DT didnt know what they were doing when they kicked him is just frankly, like the article above, incorrect.

    ah well rant about people with no clue posting over enjoy flaming my post no doubt all

    Argle: good point there. Who gives a damn if AAA was a major player “back then”? But I have to admit, the author should have added “recently” to his statement. Would have have hit the spot better.

    Stainwagon especially SE/Coven get a kick out of alarm clocking. The WILL wake up, often. So the TZ wars, not so much. It will go like this. Your forming up in your POS telling yourself "Ah, they are not going to show, they is sleeping!". Then they log on 75 dreads in your system. They were already there. Mark my words.

    A potthead’s rant does not qualify as an analysis. Martin van Hood, you do not suck – you fail. Get this right and you can suck as much as you like. People appreciate a sound analysis more than most everything else.

    I will give you a clue. People like to fight. After the fighting is over they forgive, knowing what everyone is capable of, and begin to make peace.

    However, some get it wrong and their only aim is to fight for annihilation of others and out of fear of the fight, and without putting effort into it. Also usually while being perfectly at peace. This is not good, especially when these individuals are sitting in the high ranks of an alliance. The members of every alliance can sense it when their leaders turn into idiotic war mongers.

    What then matters is not how many individual battles are being won and lost. What matters is how each side is fighting it out to get to the end.

    Hiring of mercs is cool, but if they are only used to do the initial dirty work then it can be a sign of greed, a lack of effort and not willing to pay for a long-term contract, or of false hopes to break the will of the enemy and to avoid much of the fighting.

    So put your focus less on numbers but on who of the sides is willing to fight it out with whom, and who is trying to snatch victory by avoiding the fight.

    My personal analysis: now that the alliances in the South get a chance to fight it out face to face does one picture become clearer. Tactics such as kiting and logoffski are more and more an indication of a lacking will to fight it out and an attempt to cowardly snatch victory. If this does not change or others try to take advantage (i.e. IT) of the war, then AAA+ROL will return and with them a great deal of punishment for those who feared to fight them.

    think you would benefit from proofreading your blog a bit, there is a lot of obvious fail spelling, and alot of thoughts isent finished so its hard to figure out what you mean now and then, anyway entertaining read.

    dddaaaamaaage controolllll, after that fantastic dick licking mail to Sysk time to bend over for WN?

    offtopic : dude, you have to realise that you did not conquer any space, that sov was GIVEN to you, and that alone automatically makes you someones bitch. Dont get me wrong i have nothing against puppets or pets or whatever, they are an essential part of eve, but a pet must know that he is just a pet nothing more.

    Again too much style, not enough facts. You're English is good enough, but your defensive attitude doesn't insulate you to legitimate criticism.

    1. stay docked? no such order

    2. Pay PL? untrue

    3. Trashing WN? Nope (1 sarcastic guy saying shit on TS doesn't count)

    4. Corp loss? Not a sign of fatigue or fail early on – correcting bloating

    … and more

    no we were not given anything. we're right where we expected to be – fighting with allies. We just thought we'd be fighting our way in!

    Somehow it's ok for -A- brings other alliances, but DT is weak when they do the same? ridiculous.

  26. Your comparison of DT and -A- based on membership is very poor analysis.

    Even with the numbers you present, DT lost 40% of their members while defending a recently obtained half region in nullsec – their nullsec debut. -A- lost about 300 members – 16% of their overall membership after losing upwards of three full regions of nullsec – a loss that would have sent most Alliances (e.g. Atlas) into immediate failscade.

    As of this writing, DT has lost 60% of its membership and roughly half its corporations, while -A- holds steady.

    Analysis means putting some research and thought into what you write. That means putting in a little effort, which you have not done here. This is merely content for content’s sake and obscures rather than illuminates events.

    Finally, if you’re going to deliver analysis in English, please work on your English writing skills. In the mean time ask someone to proof-read your content.
