Northern Coalition (NC) is definitely back to the old one. Big fleets around the clock reinforcing tower after tower in Venal and most importantly killing them and replacing them with their own ones. Boosted by the 7 titans killed in last 4 days, NC hit PL staging system of H-PA29 (Venal) and forces PL to fight mostly in this system.

Pandemic Legion is forced to defend themselves, using bomber gangs and hac/abaddon fleets. Due to sudden surge in numbers in NC fleets, PL is hesitant to engage and is not deploying supercapitals for time being.

More than 40+ towers still remain in PL hands. It remains to be seen if they will try or are able to defend them, or if this is the final NC push to get rid of PL threat for 2011.

Overview of some dead PL towers:

    Most of those towers are in H-pa which doesnt have any tech moons i believe, so really those are just staging towers, no big loss.. plus, holidays are over, ppl are going back to work and kids are going back to school, now we will see how its really gonna turn out..

    2. When a heard about this event I wondered if PL has a new contract and decided to leave the towers up rather than the hassle of moving them out. Time will tell I guess.

      I agree, these are Minmatar Towers which take, as we all know, Hydrogen Isotopes. Fueling these must have been a pain in the ass since they needed ice from down south (idk for sure but whatever). Losing around 3.16 Billion isk in Towers isn’t an “oh well” for some but perhaps for PL it’s equivalent to losing some ships during a battle.

      I really hope the NC doesn’t get too bloated with circle jerks and giving each other a reach around. PL isn’t out yet and could come back like stage three cancer.

      Good Job though, wish I could have been there…

      Hi smartass!

      H-PA only has a very limited number of moons…like 7 or 8 ones. Loosing those towers means all those moons will be blocked by NC. As soon as alle HPA Tower are replaced, PL cant use it anymore as staging system and will be forced out. This makes HPA Tower extremly important.

      I think they already redeployed to a different system.

    The Greater Northern Community, as the conscious exponent of the best friends forever movement, aims at the complete liberation of the trolling masses from every form of oppression and exploitation other than our own. The achievement of this objective—the abolition of private property in the means of production and the creation of the socialist society—calls for a very high development of the productive forces of capitalism and a high degree of organisation of the drones, err best friends forever. The full development of the productive forces in modern bourgeois society, a broad, free, and open class struggle, and the political education, training, and rallying of the masses of the proletariat are inconceivable without complete and absolute brainwashing. Therefore it has always been the aim of the class-conscious proletariat to wage a determined struggle for complete political dominance and the monopolization of all 0.0 space.

      “…fuel-wise…”??? You really think PL, or any other self-respecting 0.0 organisation mines racial isotopes for their towers themselves? For TECH towers, no less? 😛

      It’s just a matter of sticking all the stuff in a JF in Jita and cynoing it in, what kind of racial isotopes they bring is irrelevant. They picked minmatar cause minnie towers offer the best all-round protection while still having decent PG for “teeth”. Or were those towers Dickstars? That works too… :)

    “if they will try or are able to defend them, or if this is the final NC push to get rid of PL threat ”

    In short, they wont. As usual PLasticks made the same mistake again, mistake like: bite off more than one can chew. And now they have theeths all over Venal.

    Now they are towering less important systems in Venal, starting witn 6NJ, to use it as staging ground to attack lowsec…. all of lowsec. Most likely they will reclaim Venal, again (sarcasm end).

    Irony of this “sad” story with claiming something that u can not claim is that despite their spies, and infos they didnt see it coming. And yea, dont be surprised of many applications in your corp/alliance soon.

    PL actually does a great job at fighting their fight. They are not fighting their fight right now. There is not much anyone can do against ridiculous numbers. Either they will wait for participation on the NC side to wain then retake the moons or there is really “another contract” and they will move on. Other than the super losses the whole thing has been “op success” for them.

    definitely not a PL fan btw. just stating facts.

    I agree, PL does a GREAT job fighting their fight, provided that fight involves getting an alt into an NC corp so they can then use said alt to tackle everything in sight that’s worth more than 20mil for the purpose of killboard padding. That wouldn’t even be the worst part, but they then complain about NC blobs and how NC never fights fair and so on and so forth. Bloody hypocrites, at least be honest about how you play. 😛

    NC is a collection of people they dont want PVP. the only thing they want is silence to run their business.. moons, build caps, mining and carebear. but… if someone comes along and piss them off.. they call all alliances to stand up and fight against 1 or 2 alliances they have balls to fight against NC. to be honest… i was 2 years in the NC and yes.. shame on that. every victory is just a joke because NC is not 1 alliance.. they are a coalitions od some mayor alliances with an huge amount of people.. every single alliance of the NC would loose against a pvp ally like PL.

    they decide to go this way in eve.. okay.. its the easy way.

    Most of the ppl there are very dedicated and in the same time very funny. I don’t mind that some of them are gay as long as they commit to the nc’s purpose.
    Another thing might be the whole spying shit. Eve manages to simulate real combat situations and that means spyies are the normal deal a big fleet has to endure. Even so, nc managed to win and defend it’s territory Period!!!
    In the end, the means for a victory are not important. Some say spies, some say numbers, some say strategy….everybody is free to express hes opinion, but a victory will allways be a victory, end the looser must be quiet and eighter retriet, eighter wait for another assaul oportunity.
    Nc will not go down so easily, that’s for shure.

    PL are a corrupted and rogue organisation polluting this game and need to be crushed.

    They have no cause, except pissing off the maximum of EVE players.

    Some day, CCP will realise PL and the whole mercenary dynamic is poisoning our game and will take measure to fix it.

    In RL, mercenary organisations have been destroyed by introduction of modern armies. Today’s soldiers of fortune are allowed to operate only in small operations theaters (Africa mostly). If they were trying to get as big as become a factor between superpowers, they would be CRUSHED rapidly.

    NC, IT and Russians should band together to stop feeding mercenaries, then blow them out.
