The Providence NIP is dying (some would say already dead). A quick update on whats going in amongst the former best friends forever ( as proclaimed by their forum warriors):
Daisho Syndicate / Sodalitas XX are off and their space is lost. They have been seen around Fountain lately.
Important Internet Spaceship League (BDEAL) has reset all the other Providence residents
Teutonic Guard failure cascades and is dead
Imperial 0rder runs off Providence
Circle of Two dies/disbands/goes to Venal –
Dara Cothrom moved to Devoid and leaves station system for anyone to take
Agony Empire is out, currently in Curse
Ushra´Khan out, in Great Wildlands doing … not much

on top of that Providence INTEL channel has been finally closed so everyone left is on their own.

They are being replaced by:
Ev0ke has taken 12+ systems in Providence
Ewoks. (Ev0ke renters/pets/whatever you call them) have taken 4 systems
Not Found. (404) paid Ev0ke and is reinforcing several systems
NCDOT has 1 station and reinforcing all lower Providence working with Ev0ke
Dead Muppets tried to get some sovereignty, but were pushed off by Ev0ke

    Where is that one provi guy who said they defended there space from everyone and would continue to do so, when he was asked how he said Exp is how…Lol

    Guys Evoke only lost CR because they were 25:1 outnumbered, and knew at some point it was undefendable.

      Defending is different from attacking particularly with the new sov mechanics. Where Evoke was making excruciatingly slow progress before the addition of NCDOT was the two-by-four that broke the camel’s back. This isn’t to take anything away from Evoke and their very impressive showing just to say that the Proviblock had a chance vs Evoke, adding NCDOT turned it into a route.

    Provi block suffered several events that end with NCDOT.

    1st -MH- was for 2 weeks doing blackops operations
    2cond Pandemic reinforcing 1-2 station
    3th Ev0ke with no space hanging around for monts
    4th NCDot came and did the work for Ev0ke

    just much of the ppl sed enough for this shitty region.
    Anyway provi is grate region to just come and messing around, blackops operations and so on.

  9. UK was kicked out long ago and doesnt have much to do with this EVOKE stuff except for the irony. Soda/Dai/CO2/BDEAL/Agony/Daco got greedy, turned on AAA/UK for short term gain, turned on or abandoned those who didnt turn on AAA/UK along with them, and then realized a few lost allies too late that only a united Provi had a shot. It was good while it lasted, gl to all the old Provi crew and +1 for CVA vs EVOKE

    Evoke was superior to the Providence holders, with or without CO2 the addition of NCdot sealed the deal.

    CO2 might have bought some time but as we see with the result in Impass they were not cut out for space holding and probably could have worked a deal out for themselves with there old Brosefs in NCdot if they did not failure cascade.

    But alas they did so they will not have an space in the next 2 weeks I am sure.

    Congrats to Evoke and NCdot the new space holder power houses, you finally got what you guys wanted space surrounded by reds with little chance of being blobbed to death. I am sure you and IT will get along just great!

    Not entirely accurate. BDEAL is still blue to AGONY, and AGONY still defends their space vs. 404 + Ev0ke. We’ll continue to help where we can. We’re outnumbered bad in the euro timezone, so it’s just be a matter of time if they REALLY want BDEAL’s constellation (probably), but the lack of blues in the area is at least keeping it interesting. We’re getting a chance to experiment with other tactics that helps level it out a bit…even if some of our first attempts aren’t that great, lol

      Cva cant quite keep up with ev0ke in the old money department by a long stretch, 2-3years of moongoo bug exploit means that they can probably wage war anyway they like for the next 10years :)

      At this point, both ev0ke and CVA are mostly grabbing evacuated and undefended systems, so there’s little reason for major fleet ops between them. I imagine both sides have a list of things worth taking, and my guess is both of them include the FIGL pocket. Once they get to that, there will be blood.

      Since Ev0ke apparently have a complete ban on posting in any politics forum, getting confirmation on anything from them is kinda tricky :P.

        And, 404 isnt big. I could go around asking who was convoed for such information, and i imagine not a single 404 has been convoed to get such information.

    Provi NIP suffered several serious setbacks. PL was the beginning. With them rocking the boat at critical times, CVA managed to hold S9X. CVA also managed to do several sneaky take overs. When sov was dropped in several systems for transfer (or abandon), CVA were very quick at destroying TCU’s and dropping their own. They have 10 systems, 3 of them are from take overs. S9X they fought well for and claimed (and as above, retained due to PL’s actions). 1-1 and 18- were claimed off IO after they basically failed to do anything and did everything to fail. 6 were given to them by Noir. of which they only managed to claim 2 and attempts at claiming the rest were crushed by provi NIP. The rest, including N8X, CVA managed to get by either sov drop or quick action during sov transfer.

    Once PL left, Provi was in a situation of having a very poor Euro TZ. Having CO2 may have helped this problem, but they were busy fail cascading elsewhere. When Evoke showed up, Provi turned eyes off CVA and focused on Evoke, managing to hold them off initially. However the introduction of NC. and provi FC’s constantly be retardedly obsessed with failing drake blobs, effectively sealed the deal.

    Moral of this wall of text: Without PL and Evoke/NC. involvement, CVA would not be holding any space at all. The answer to everyones question as to what will now happen between CVA and Evoke is simple. CVA struggled against an overstretched provi NIP. Against Evoke and NC. they will once again be thrown out of provi. No question about it.

      None of the “provi-nip” would be there in the first place without “big brother” involvement, ofcoz there will be others involved. Cva actually fought for and held their space for 3 years. What killed nrds provi was primarily game-mechanic changes making the space worth something and expensive to have.
      Nrds is not technically possible w sov changes unless you are able to tax all kills in your systems or something.

      Alot of ppl want to fly nrds, its like playing eve on hard-mode.. most are not roleplayers, I liked having an alt in old provi.

        Dont really get why ppl are hating cva.. they only alliance sofar who managed to do something different then every other alliance in 0.0.
        Definately one of the most honorable..

        its this carebear hating.. is that a roleplay thing, ive always wondered? Met tons of ppl who “hated” ppl flying nrds, coz they didnt think that was they way eve was supposed to be played(lolsandbox)

        Dont think anyone ever held same space for as long as cva held provi, maybe BoB/IT? but they cheated so that doesnt count.

        Anyways dont know if cva were evercarebears not in the 3 years ive known them for sure.

          Yes, they were carebears, look at our FIGL board and you’ll see all kinds of their carebear ships dead when they undock them (best one is the rattlesnake). With that being said, we didn’t “hate” CVA. We loved to fight them becuase they made 0.0 space fun because they didn’t give up! No matter how many we killed, they’d come back with more and that makes EVE really fun. Of course it is rumored that Aralis hates us the most of all alliances. That’s understandable since we always primaried his ass when we seen him on the field. (He lost a few capitals to us).

          One thing I can say about CVA, they are one determined alliance and I will give them credit for that.
