Back by popular demand, it’s Eve News Now!


[spoiler show=”Show Transcript” hide=”Hide Transcript”]

My Name is Hallan Turrek, and this is Eve News Now.

In Tenal: Over the last week, the Drone Russian forces have stopped taking sovereignty in Tribute and are instead focusing on Tenal. RAZOR Alliance has now lost 17 systems in the region, and the DRF forces don’t look to be stopping anytime soon.

In Detorid: White Noise and RaidenDOT have abandoned this region for greener pastures in the North. After consolidating Tenerifis under it’s own control, AAA has made a new push into this region for space. So far they’ve met with limited or no resistance.

In the Alliance Tournament: Day four of the Pre-Qualifying round is now over. Congratulations to the winners, and my condolences to the losers. Some major Null-Sec powers are already out of the tournament, including Majesta Empire, Morsus Mihi, Test Alliance PLease Ignore and Northern Coalition Dot.

In Deklein: Skymarshal Phreeze of Pandemic Legion, on the verge of leaving the game for Afganistan, challenged Lazarus, an FC from the Goonswarm federation to a battle. Lazarus apprently accepted, and in the system of DKUK-G the two FC and their respective fleets clashed. The result was a rare massacre of the Pandemic Legion forces, who lost 65 ships and only killed 6.

In The Northern Coalition: Political backstabbing and intrigue are the name of the game, with Vuk Lau officially brushing off former allies Fatal Ascension. Despite an offer of help with their current war, the NC figurehead has reportedly planned to reset their former allies. Of course, this comes shortly on the heels of Test’s reset of the entire Northern Coalition, and Goonswarm Federation’s planned reset of most of the NC as well.

With no allies left, no will to fight, no where else to go, and the Drone Russians breaking in the doors, how long does the rest of the NC have?

This has been Eve News Now.

Special thanks to Eve News 24, to CCP, To Dotlan, and to listeners like you. I appreciate it.[/spoiler]

    Tenal is smart because once you have the NPC regions closer to hisec its easy to do Cyno chains for resupply etc.

    Also Rzr is literally been a walking corpse for like a year now. So why not go for weakest and 1 of best regions and hammer and Anvil the other NC members. Once WN and DRF Dig into Tenal though they will be super hard to remove, IDK why peeps say or said fortress Tribute, its Tenal has only 5 main entrance systems you can lock down and shut People out with.

    I am sad about Botting happening like it does in the very south but its happening a good amount now. Its nice seeing NC fall but bittersweet. Sometimes you make deals with the Devils you know etc.

    Alli tourney means little with the entire North up for grabs. It makes in a month what the Tourney Prizes are worth all year.

    Cash…Money… The NC played the game via legit channels and lost the war because of it. Playing EVE vs. botting, Denial of Service attacks, and insane RMT is a sure fail. I'm so mad bro. feels like NATO just lost to the commies.

      NC just lost because they are bad. They are just a big bunch of farmers. So no wonder they can get steamrolled by pretty much any alliance going by.

    In all fairness its a bit grandiose to say the NC played by legit channels. with all their income and their showing of titans, one must assume a large amount of isk went into RMTing. I dont think the NC high command is any better than the russians on that part. they might bot less but their income -was- higher because of their moon advantage. And if they were selling supers to PL and such… theres even more isk.

    NC wasnt fit to keep the space they so long maintained it seems.

        Oh, he. So you've got a specific person in mind, and you can show specific ISK totals that flowed, and evidence that they went to a specific person, and you've got a reason to suggest that someone in specific is guilty of RMTing. You're not just trolling, and you'll actually provide that proof immediately.

        Right?
        No?

            Unless I am mistaken Red Overlords alliance leader was banned along with his accounts for RMT? The site caught with 300k+ dolars worth of isk sold was a russian site?

            I wonder where all these botting rumors came from.

            Those people uprepping Conspiracy Theory nonsense and negrepping basic logic are (nearly) as amusing as your attempt at using the Tu Quoque Fallacy as a crude bludgeon.

            Caught in the fact that you've made a very serious accusation without even the most minimal attention to facts or logic, you've decided to try to change the subject with a risible demand that I "never again" make claims that I haven't made in the first place. Funny, that. You could simply admit that you have no proof of your Conspiracy Theory, and correct your mistake, but ah well, eh?

            Give proof, or retract.
            (Or continue this same behavior and make it clear that your interest is trolling, not an honest or a factual discussion of anything related to EVE)
            It's really quite simple.

  6. That idiotic RMT/Botting phrase starts not only to bore me, but indeed to annoy me !

    What entity had most Techmoons in EVE and where the hell has all that income gone ? Obviously not into building a supercap fleet, obviously not into any kind of proper ship reimbursement. Now tell me, who has done RMT and thus had personal RL-Money to buy himself a new house instead of ingame ISK to have his realm defended ?

    The DRF did the right thing, they just saved their ISK, waited for the day to come and instead of RMTing it, they chose to do the right thing and invested in the most powerful fleet EVE Online has ever seen, just to steamroll the NC which in turn had RMTd all their ISKs and no ISK remaining to pay someone to defend their space. And guess what ! Supercapital Pilots are not stupid ! Why should they sacrifice their precious ships to their Idiot leaders who RMTd all that nice Tech-Income instead of offering any kind of decent reimbursement ? Why should any Supercapital pilot ever sacrifice his personal wealth to greedy and sociopathic as well as egoistic leaders who just RMTd all the ISK gained through Moongoo-sales ?

    Human beings often tend to accuse others of exactly the weaknesses they have themselves. I do not know exactly why, may it be that someone is more sensitive to his own wrongdoings or may it just be that most people have limited phantasy and thus seek only in areas, where they know themselves how a system may be abused.

    So, whoever, up to the top lead, accused the other side or RMTing and this very intensively ? Yes, the NC ! Whoever did have some miraculous ISK sink, which only can be explained by RMT ? Yes, the NC !

    You never heard those accusations towards the NC on behalf of the DRF leadership ! Not in speeches, nowhere.

    Due to personal research and experience I have come to the conclusion that many of the so-called-bots were not bots, but highly specialized miners, which were amassed by the drone russians.

    There are professional miners who have hundreds of billions of ISK on their wallets because they do nothing else than have their personal mining fleet cleaning the belts all day long.
    They have their Rorqual and about 6-7 Hulks, which is about the maximum you are able to control manually.

    For years, the DRF area was and still is a miners paradise. If some roaming gang shows up, you just go safe and wait for them to leave.

    As there are quite a bunch of thos ultra rich miners, you can be sure there are some who RMT parts of their wealth. As there are in any entity with decent income some guys who RMT their income.

    EVE Online is a game for PvP and PvP comsumes a lot Values. So just by avoiding PvP and still farming for Income you will get rich in a very short amount of time. It is the nature of the design of this game.

    Concerning RMT: CCP is quite up to its task. As far as I have seen, any Idiot who thought he is clever by buying himselves cheap RMT-ISK got banned/punished ! In my own alliance anyone whoever tried to get his ISK by illegal means, without any exception got punished quite immediately. CCP also deliberately punished surrounding players and corporations as well just to give entities a strong reason to avoid RMT-ISK-buying members.

    Btw. the real winner during the last few months is Pandemic Legion ! Huge Income, neglectable losses and no severe vulnerabilities like expensive Sovspace made them the single most powerful entity in EVE Online. As it is the age of mercenaries or mercenary-like organisations in EVE atm, I will look forward to paid for clashes in between them. PL vs RAIDEN. vs NC./EV0KE vs Contractors.

      Basically, the general concensus blames everything on "BOTTING" and "RUSSIANS". Raiden. isn't russian. NCdot isn't russian, and PL definately not either of those.

      If you can remember, the Northern Coalition spent alot of money battling DRF for months and months before other players even knew the war existed. Alot of isk was spent replacing ships, supers, you name it. Many individual players also spent their own isk during these times as well and the amount of the entire campaign must total to an obvious rediculous amount I'm sure. As soon as PL came in to the picture, more changed yes with others tagging along to jump in on the bag wagon of kicking a dead horse. Do not forget also CCP sec status patches in 0.0 systems lowered income more or less contributing to a financial collapse for the NC.

      You can't give credit to any one alliance or any one FC or any one entity for the break down the NC experienced nor for disbanning and taking loses. It was a team effort by multiple groups of organized people and the best TEAM in eve wins everytime.

      So, I take it, you have actual proof as to the total ISK that the NC pulled out of the moons, the total they spent on ship reimbursement and supers, the total they spent on sov bills, the total they stored away for rainy day funds, etc?

      No? Just conspiracy nonsense and the claims that Vuk bought certain stuff in real life? On that point, you've at least got data showing how much Vuk earns per year, what his mortgage is like, how much personal debt he's in, etc. Right?

      No?
      Funny… that.

      Still no proof, eh?
      Any time now, maybe?
      Here, let me show you what an honest, non-trolling, non-lobotomized attempt to discuss the subject might look like.

      "The alliance known as [ ] held [ ] tech moons for [ ] months. These moons were held by the corporations [ ], [ ], [ ] and [ ], who were expected to pay [ ] as a tax to the alliance, while keeping the rest for themselves. During that time the alliance harvested and sold [ ] of tech at an average of [ ] per unit and kept [ ] for personal use in their industrial affairs and kept [ ] in reserve and/or for market manipulation. During that time the corps harvested and sold [ ] of tech at an average of [ ] per unit and kept [ ] for personal use in their industrial affairs and kept [ ] in reserve and/or for market manipulation. The alliance/corps, in turn, spent [ ] on sov, [ ] on ship replacement programs, [ ] on miscellaneous expenses such as [ ], stored [ ] ISK in their wallets as a slush fund. This leaves an unexplained balance of [ ]. This, in turn, was available to the following characters: [ ], [ ], [ ], and the wallet balance could have been audited by [ ], [ ] and [ ]. From this, we know that roughly [ ] ISK are unaccounted for and [ ], [ ], and [ ] could, or should, have known that such a massive amount of ISK was missing, meaning that they condoned if not outright participated in its theft. Likely possible misuses of that ISK include [ ], [ ], [ ], and [ ]. Of the unaccounted for ISK, it is likely that [ ]% of it was taken by [ ], [ ] and/or [ ]. We know this because [ ]. It is likely that they earned real world cash via RMT, or other off-the-books revenue streams. We know this because their combined income with their spouse's earning amounts to [ ], their credit/debt is [ ], and they made the following purchases which cannot be explained by their personal finances: [ ], [ ], [ ]."

      Vs.
      "What entity had most Techmoons in EVE and where the hell has all that income gone ? Obviously not into building a supercap fleet, obviously not into any kind of proper ship reimbursement. Now tell me, who has done RMT and thus had personal RL-Money to buy himself a new house instead of ingame ISK to have his realm defended ? "

      Do you spot the difference between actual, factual reasoning and sperging out with Conspiracy Theory Theater?

      There are no jump bridges in Vale/Gem.

  8. NC Is done

    This article talks about the NC as if it still exists, it doesn't. It has fallen, and been defeated. The main tribute systems are on their final timers. Corps and alliances are evacuating tribute. Fire sales are going on in tribute as people try to get out. The NC is finished. Mass evacuations actually started to materialze the day the NC lost 7 CSAA's and the Goon's reset. Folks, the North is done, make no mistake about it.

    the first thing we had to do was kill the bots

    one system had 4 bots in it and each bot had its own small tower and corp hanger.

    so do not tell me NC was not the Botting kingdom and this is just the ones that did not get moved in time. also on contracts masses of Cloaky Drakes filled the screen.

    zhehe funny nc control this part of space more time than much of people who writing here playing. Old man dying.Every imperium die.
    Whan i try 1month fly true the drone region and russian region a see only bots. You can fly there 5h and kill big shit. But if you take alt to some renters corp and start scrambling distrupting booting ships on moons, you have kills anuf. If thay nots bot, why i can do this all night. because nobody see intel.
    Booting runs everywhere and its big shit..
    Think nc die because people are bored, dont have much fc. And if someone wants lead fleet pl have online stream from ts. Cant do much. Supers and titand are alot, but lots of sc pilots dont play.
