After C-J6MT, Red Alliance decided to leave Insmother entirely, a move which left Legion of xXDEATHXx and allies to bite the dust and fend for themselves. Behind closed doors they started talking to Against All Authorities, enemy entity which had just helped Solar Fleet to take their C-J6MT capital system. The deals involved the possibility of Red Alliance moving towards Delve.

Moving to Delve would have meant that Red Alliance would transfer sov, saving -A- and SOLAR a good chunk of structure grinding. At first Red Alliance chose not to accept the propossal and attempt to save face pretending to be a capable fighting force. They went to Delve and experienced first hand the “Thunderdome” experience, from the receiving end. It happened that even smaller entities like The Forsaken and Nemesis aren’t too keen on seeing new kids in the block trying to make a name off the back of their alliance members and promptly decided to rapecage both staging POSes and NPC station Red Alliance was staying in. Since Delve didn’t turned out to be an easy cookie to steal, Red Alliance turned to Querious, this is the reason last week the kill activity topped within Cascade Imminent [FAIL] solar systems. This move did not went as expected for Red Alliance which apart from meeting FAIL resistance, had repeatedly found StainWagon steeping their heels.

Where was -A- during all this? Well RA asked for -A- to just stay out of Querious and Delve while they attacked the alliances that lived there in an effort to take space. -A- accepted since saving themselves two months of structure grinding was an offer too good to let it pass. Having Insmother would give Carte Blanche to -A- and Solar Fleet to freely tear apart the rest of the former Drone Regions Forces.

Reshaping the South

After the afore mentioned coming and goings, the original plan seems to be solidifying, if you take a look at RA’s recent changes in Dotlan you will notice a few sov transfer to the newly formed Udachnogo Strukturodrocha corporation (it roughly translates to Good Luck Structures) apart from that, there are several sov drops already underway.

So, how does things fare after the re-shuffle? According to our intel and rumors, it can be summarized this way:

– Cascade Imminent will leave Querious/Delve handing over all sov and stations to RA after two weeks during which they are given blue standings to RA for safe evac.

– Cascade Imminent will be given Detorid in exchange. They had not much of a choice here otherwise -A- would have reset them and let them die in a fire. Because that is what -A- wanted to do anyway since -A- views them as carebears and mostly useless they can bring numbers but what they cant bring is quality. Another reason for -A- wanting to reset them is that the people for which -A- blued Cascaded aren’t there anymore (Manny being a notable example).

– Nulli Secunda, which to me are a pretty decent Sov holding entity will get Omist (all of omist) in exchange for leaving their Delve Holdings. *Guderian3 from Nulli had categorically denired this rumor.*

– Brazilian Vera Cruz will be allowed to keep their Period Basis holdings in exchange for leaving their Delve Holdings.

– HUN Reloaded will heave to be removed by RA nobody talked to them as nobody respects them or views them as any kind of threat.

– NEM3SIS. well obviously nobody in his right mind would talk to them as nobody views them as a threat.. they will just be murdered by RA.

– Pax Romana Alliance, The Forsaken. and Pirate Nation. well NEM3SIS. which makes them even worse.

All in all some space re-arrangements with some winners and several losers. Biggest winners are -A- and friends followed by Nulli Secunda. SOLAR FLEET gets relieved from Red Alliance which posed some logistical issues due their holdings position deep within null-sec. The rest are the losers, who are most likely left to die or merge into larger alliances. Guess that’s eve political games are part of it. Eve Being Eve.

At the moment the RA relation toward TEST / Fountain is blue or at least friendly, so there is the prospect of them having a nice home in Delve.

The gears for this are already in motion with Cascade Imminent leaving Querious in a hurry, what’s interesting is the perception of them leaving all renters behind (FAILA) without notice as quoted in the following two evemails:

“Okay if you didn’t know already we are evacuating Querious. The alliance is pushing full force into our current endeavour and will be leaving Q defenseless. Only renters will be left in Q and it will sit until it falls.”

“Cascade Imminent are ABORTING QUERIOUS.
This is not a panic move, not an invasion. The region was sold as part of a deal hammered out by The Southern Coalition and the Drone Russian Federation. We won – we are getting the best part of the deal”

Analysis

As an internet spaceship analyst, the biggest winner here is without doubt Agains All Authorities. After having their shit pushed in by WhiteNoise., WTF, Red Alliance and the Drone Russian Forces, payback seems to be handed big time for them. My hats off to Against All Authorities for the display of power on C-J6MT. The stage is set for them to tear apart Legion of xXDEATHXx and their allies. Differently from any other coalition, -A- and friends have repeatedly shown themselves a no fear attitude towards Pandemic Legion’s super-capital fleet. Solar Fleet is another big winner as the table is set for them along -A- to tear a new one on Shadow of xXDEATHXx; the renter alliance of Legion of xXDEATHXx. Don’t be surprised if you see a good chunk of renters flee in a rush from the Drone Regions.

Red Alliance seems to have acted in a self-preservation spirit. This doesn’t hide the fact of being left in a buffer position between the Deklein Coalition and the -A-TEAM. The DekCo, being “boredom averse” won’t hesitate to drop the current friendly status in exchange for some action, this is specially the case with the Honey Badgers.

Finally for the Against All Authorities led -A-TEAM, the events which culminated during the battle of C-J6MT consolidated them as a force to be reckoned within Eve. They have certainly regained a good chunk of their former glories. Having invested a decent part of the last year recruiting sub-capital corps and deploying supers in spite of being outnumbered was a bold bet, one which is paying off for them.

A few Corrections / Additions

– Nemesis. is mergin into Nulli Secunda, S2N will be taking over their space.

– S2N deny any intention to move into Omist.

– Romanian Legion will be receiving Nulli Secunda’s assets in Period Basis.

    Looks like Cascade got the shitty end of that deal. Enjoy having your empire logistics being twice as long, and the inevitable -A- turning their back on you when you encounter a serious threat to your sov(like they did to ATLAS MK1).

      U stupid or something?
      Querious is shit space, mostly pipes, it sits one jump from npc delve or lowsec which makes it hard to defend and supercap building non existant. Rental income tops out around 100b for Q. The moons are so-so.
      Detorid however, is potentially over 400b a month. If this wasn't a positive move for cascade, they wouldn't be going. FAIL has never lost a war in the south, something people seem to forget.
      Also, just so you're aware, -A- and FAIL have been allies every day since cascade formed. Neither has ever backstabbed or been dishonest with the other in any way. Their relationship wasn't always the best, but it is as solid a friendship as you can get in Eve between alliances. -A- knows cascade won't betray them. RED on the other hand… well theres a very nice region gap between querious and catch which makes logistics for supers very very difficult.

      tldr; U r dumb

    Haha talking about AAA and Nulli like equals is really funny. The south is dominated by AAA, SOLAR, RED.Overlord. These are alliances which really have decisive word.
    Then also SE and c0ven must be considered, they are quite pros – of course they dont have the numbers but they keep quality.

    Everything else are niche players living out of generosity of their masters. Especially Nulli and FAIL were soo much overrated. The only reason they had a chance to do something, is because they lived in region which wasnt under serious threat for incredibly long time. The whole area of Delve, Querious and Period Basis is just one huge carebear corner where carebears blame each other who is bigger carebear.

    I dont get what -A- is doing..are they so stupid? Made a deal with RA only to safe time for sov-grinding? Why not finish RA, they will build up against..and who can say what is in the next year..now -A- is strong again, but RA will surely never forget…so its totally stupid to let them go into Querious without fights…GREAT work -A- diplos! :(

      You don't seem to understand that this is possibly what -A- wants, if you kill RA whose there really left to shoot locally? RA can build up and try again if they want but the result will still be the same. Something tells me they might not be that stupid this time around.

    A Carve up from former enemies leaving the small alliances to merge or die. What a suprise the group of heads from allainces does it again. RA derserved to die not be reborn via te deaths of smaller allainces.

    Thanks to -A- for shafting its nieghbours again. Usual tricks from the cowards thier. Cascade leving its renters. The only reason you were able to suvive in Q was from the iSK they generated for you so leaving them to bburn is disgraceful and unforgivable,

    Being part of one of the smaller alliances in delve it is interesting that stain are there to give RA a bloody nose. Hats off to them and I hope they make RA suffer a long and protracted death.

    Well yet again time to move on and find an allaince that has a reasonably afe area to do indy in. :(

    Good luck to nulli and I hope the rest of you burn in a fiery pit in hell.

      You sound like you're in NEM3 bro.

      Anyway those small alliances haven't done jack shit, Nulli started as a small alliance under IT Alliance, they found a way to grow up maybe these nobodies should follow that example.

    Riv –

    First, I know English is not your native tounge – so props to you. That said, you need to run this by someone cause it displays the same lucidity as a Charlie Sheen early morning interview.

    Wars end. Everyone is trying to put themselves in the best position to defend against Goons ATM and leaving a vacuum in areas -A- are not interested in would be foolish.

    "Differently from any other coalition, -A- and friends have repeatedly shown themselves a no fear attitude towards Pandemic Legion’s super-capital fleet"

    Oh come off it, they got every man and his dog to drop supers they sold them ONCE! when they knew PL and NC. wouldn't fully deploy as they knew what was coming…… Would -A- have done the same if full super CTA was called or as they did RDN was involved and it was a fair super fight?
    Baring that they have blueballed any super fight with PL or NC, they had supers ready to go and sacrificed their first titan because didn't have balls to fight a 15man super gang lol

    Not counting the numerous blueballed fights even in tengu's and same numbers with guarantees that supers wouldn't be used, unless they blueballed – they bailed and got dropped on as they retreated as they were told they would be.

    -A- all of a sudden didn't care about loses (and oh boy they had had some t3 loses) which seemed odd, where did this isk to be selling Supers to friendly's at 7bil, dreads at 1bil come from? Never mind the supers themselves?
    All with the condition of they used them for them if it kicked off in C-J lol

    So please give it a rest with this -A- saved the day bollocks, RA got babysat for 6 months and in the end wouldnt fight themselves so lost space.
    -A- get bank rolled and involve the entire south in a napfest to take space which basically wasn't defended anyway.
    And C-J was 1200+150 supers vs 600 (if you even could whelp goons Init killed) and 70 supers – So give over this -A- stand tall against PL and NC. as they blatantly don't lol

      There were plenty of times full PL supers were on standby waiting to be deployed when they were ordered to stand down because AAA + friends had totally demolished their subcap support.

      Your points are invalid.

    The only success AAA had was when we started fighting. They were loosing until we joined. They don't even know how to fly drakes properly, we had to show them our flock formation and keep explaining it to them. -A- musn't get cocky we have always been in charge of the South and all agreements have to be decided by us first, not those boys who need us to win their fights for them.

    You know stain and Coven reset -A- every time the big evil thread has been dealt with….. I think -A- will also reset more alliances down south to stimulate an active PvP region. No structures, just roams.

    Sounds like a little piece of heaven

    Hey dumb phucks a reset is healthy, its a non-sov pact but they actually fight each other from time to time, not like everyone up north was and now still is. everything north of -A- space and all the way to the left of the map is pretty much all blue to each other.
