After the withdraw statement by The Initiative. (INIT) – http://www.evenews24.com/2011/01/17/press-release-official-initiative-statement-on-catch/
StainWagon and AAA continue to take station after station.

The most important system in Catch – GE-8JV – lost its IHUB without any battle. White Noise and occasionally INIT sends bomber fleets to harass AAA subcapitals. Sofar without bigger impact.

Several Initiative Associates and Initiative Mercenaries systems have been lost as well, some of them due to pulling the TCU´s down. Cascade Imminent, which is formed by former AAA corporation HAVOC, gained 2 station system (CZK and FAT) and is first of the AAA allies, that acquired space in newly conquered Catch region.

AAA controls 11 stations in Catch but there is still more than half left in INIT or their allies hand. Despite no active defenses, it will be very time consuming process, that could give INIT much needed rest for regroup within Immensea and maybe satisfy AAA need for space. On the other hand there is a strong feeling of absolute revenge in AAA to INIT. Emotions are high and people don´t forgive so easily (AAA lost Catch in similar manner only weeks ago). Important will be, is there someone willing to take and live in the region. I believe once the offer is on table, there are always groups in Eve, that will be looking for any territory and join any powerblock that offers them sov space.

And we shouldn´t count INIT out yet. Eve can truly be very surprising and recent losses doesn´t mean future ones as well. INIT numbers are stable sofar and dedication is the basic stone for effective resistance.

    The really interesting question now is if and who AAA will hit next. IT? Further pursue INIT in Immensea? Start hitting Providence? I’m sure they’ll take a little break after structure pounding for a solid week or so, but they’ve got plenty of targets and revenge to seek.

    the bombers wings arent so much for subcapital kills as Fighters and figterbomber killing. fuck km’s, replacing those fighterbombers is a bigger bitch than a ship.

    Personally, I’d be very surprised if we (init) have immensea a month from now. I don’t see why AAA and co would stop at catch. If not for themselves, they can install pets/allies next door.

      Plenty of room in Querious and Delve that aren’t being used. Even if IT keeps Fountain not many of the FR are going to be as they currently are. However, I will be very very surprised if Stain helps -A- take Immensea but this is EVE.

      To answer the two above posters together:

      I’d be surprised because I think a lot of half-bit alliances in npc/lowsec will see this as an opportunity to show off to the big players in the hope that by working with them and showing enough muscle they will be permitted to keep some of the space they helped take.

      Also, I know if I was running AAA I’d consider removing Init as an example to anyone else might attack them.

      I love Init and I hope we’ll do great but we might need to do great somewhere else xD

        Hardin I know you in game you are very level headed and un-emotional and I completely agree you guys need to come to IT space, right now Dek is only winning because of IT`s Split fronts and SUper Cap Pilots are having to Dual Box whch is no good.

        ED is coming and will give say 50-75 More Fighters per battle, with Init IT could get 150-300 more a battle and be even with the Blobs of Dek CO.

        Just Goons and Test are as many as IT+Friends in numbers then they have the entire western part of NC as well.

    -A- might send us out of immensea, but not w/o their coalition. The alliance still feels pretty strong together so dont think our numbers are going to be affected. Win or lose some interesting days are ahead and a lot of INIT seem to be glad this sov shit is over.

    I was all for Init, why in the world do they think they can hold immensea if they couldnt hold catch, if anything they needed to use catch as a “Tactical Retreat” to inflict lots of Dmg and tire out AAA so when Defense came it would be less sweet.

    Now it seems like -A- will be renewed in there cause thinking that if they gave up catch, they will give up Immensea.

    Very bad move IMO, what was the upside if and Init guys can awnser.

    Also 1 more question for Init DT did the same exact thing they left Fey immediately one day just like you are leaving Catch and you killed em for it, Just seems like the same thing now you guys are gonna leave IT in the wind.

    Oh well if immensea falls IT will let you come live like ED and all will be stronger for it, but question is what about IM who has poured out so much IHubs? How are you guys gonna maintain? You doubled size because x4 teh space but what about now?

      If u actually followed the war ud know we were fighting toe to toe till a week back when their sc count almost doubled. W/o help in the form of sc’s we couldnt deploy them and they did. With 18 titans in the field logis and command ships were going down left and right in engagements. It was really no use fighting at that point. Whats funny is a bunch of ppl who joined aaa at the end were originally backstabbed by aaa and they are thinking they are gonna get space and will keep it for the long run ? Good luck to u.

      In the case of DT they were hunted cos they were bailing using our jb’s while we were in full scale deployment to go help (yeah yeah we were late). It wouldnt have happenned if they just had informed us that they were leaving or w/e. Leaving ur allies in front line to cover ur retreat was why they were hunted.

      IM .. dont think we are going anywhere at the moment. But its gonna be tight prolly in immensea, lets see. Dont think any decision has been made on this yet, cos we think we will prolly be kicked in a while.

    It will be interesting to see what -A- will do with the WN stations and sov in Catch, Tenerifis and Feyth. I’m sure -A- want all their space back, but they probably don’t want to start a massive war with the Russian Bloc.

      If I remember correctly the stations that WN own in Feythabolis are from former ROL corps that jumped to WN when it looked like ROL was failcascading. But yeah, I doubt Stain wants a war with the Russian block so I’m sure something will be worked out.

      People need to stop talking like -A- has any power. Stain and ROL do, they are the only reason -A- was able to beat INIT and any invasion of Immensea would need their support for -A- to pull it off.

    To be perfectly honest, many of us in AAA don’t want this space. GE/HED/AOK area of catch fine but anything beyond that we never really use. Yeah, renters and shit but we did fine without renters over the last few months. Most folks are rich enough to not require handouts anyhow.

    Would that stop me from invading Immensea? No. Purely to finish the job and then give that shit region away to someone else (INIT can then fight its way back if it want to). I also too believe that White Noise needs a spanking. I loath the whole ISK lands of the east White Noise are a part of. Remember it was the east that hired Pandemic Legion to begin with and White Noise was there aiding INIT and IT and still currently sit on former AAA regions. Again, I don’t care for those lost regions but White Noise is utterly useless on its own and does not deserve the space handed to it.

    Init to move in and take over Fountain, Init and IT become unassailable in the West and work together closer to re-establish themselves as powerhouses.

      Hmmm init in Fountain, sounds like a good idea to me. IF IT & Co are able to keep fountain due to the new PL campaign, you rather have some competent alliance next door instead of Blade and blast. Its easier to defend each other than in the current situation and you dont lose control of fountain again, unless you’re willing to babysit all year long.

    We will see, where our next target is. Most important is that: To fly with INIT FC’s and INIT pilots is the best i made ever –> let’s keep this my friends.

    I thank also our enemys for a lot of good fights. We showed in the last 4 month how EVE works and that not all have to be blue to each other.

    Looking forward to our next war

    INIT had little to do with the fall of Catch. PL and IT are the reasons -a- moved to stain. INIT was only able to hold it as long as IT was around to bail them out. Now that PL is once again helping IT it could free up IT to save INIT once again. That will determine the fate of INIT and thier space far more than anything INIT could do.

    Test Alliance, now bringing espionage to the masses.

    Have you always wanted to be a spy but don’t have the connections?
    Are you mad at your alliance and want to get back at them?
    Are you looking to leave an alliance and want to do some awox’ing before you leave?
    Do you want to steal some assets but don’t have the manpower/experience/Skill points?
    Do you just need some isk and don’t care what you do to get it?

    Then the Test Alliance, Please Inform Program is for you!

    The format is simple.
    1.) Go to this link: https://spreadsheets.google.com/viewform?formkey=dF9vM28tNDBmeGJZSGc3SkZ4V0cxS0E6MQ
    2.) You enter the name of an anonymous alt through which we can communicate, and a general description of what you have to offer.
    3.) I evemail the alt to discuss if we are interested and we agree upon terms (isk, percentage of what is stolen, A spot in alliance, anything really).
    4.) You send the more detailed information and providing that it is a. as advertised, b. proven true, and c. not intel we already have (I will try and weed duplicates out in step 2, however if something slips past we will most likely reach some sort of compromise, I dont want to leave you emptyhanded) The deal will go through.
    5.) I send you whatever we agreed upon.

    This can be as anonymous as you want it to be.

    Obviously we aren’t looking for blue intel, and intel pertaining to active enemies will receive better compensation, but we are open to anything you want to tell us.

    I encourage anyone who feels like they got a deal that was anything other than what was expected to post on the forums. Even though we are dealing in shady matters, I can ensure you that this only works if I am a man of my word.

    Happy Spying!
