Easley Thames: xXDEATHXx Evacuation Gone Wrong

Legion of xXDEATHXx, the alliance with a name reminiscent of a 13 year-old’s console gaming ID, has been evacuating assets to NPC stations for at least two weeks.

With RA supposedly cutting a deal to transfer all of their sovereignty to their enemies, the downfall of XIX is likely to come even sooner than anticipated.

Recently, AAA has been camping XxDEATHXx evacuation systems, including critical jump beacons across multiple regions.

The results have been considerable thus far:

Some evacuation kills are better than others, like this exceptionally juicy Charon:

Until today the majority of the kills have been carriers or jump freighters. No one complains about such kills, but they don’t match the bliss of seeing a super-cap explode.

However, today was an especially good day for the AAA members who have been actively hunting xXDEATHXx evacuees.

-1 Nyx and Rorqual in Malpais on an XxdeathXx tower!

Members of the -A- corporation “hirr” had cloaked tacklers ready when a Rorqual and two super-carriers jumped to a cyno beacon in 6-WMKE.

A Hel was allowed to escape, possibly out of sheer pity for the owner, but a Rorqual and Nyx were destroyed by a AAA super-cap fleet consisting of one titan and 22 super-carriers.

The future of this once powerful alliance is currently uncertain. Many speculate they may attempt to negotiate with Solar to re-establish their pre-civil-war boundaries, but whether that will be acceptable to Solar is unknown at this time.

        Small point: Right sound but wrong word. Just on a trivia aspect the words are actually ' hear hear ' , referring to the implication that the person who has just finished speaking made some great or particularly agreeable points and that all present should ' hear him ' . And now you know.

        Now as you said to the OP, i too will also state a resounding ' hear hear ' in reply. Death to all bot farms in Eve online indeed.

      Sov war no, skirmishes yes, I hope. I like skirmishing with -A-. We generally lose, of course, but at least the fights are exciting and have the potential to educate. Fighting goonswarm is like fighting a kindergarten cub-scout troop. Bomb them, bubble them, then go to town while their logi is spammed with "I ARE NEED AMROR" broadcasts.

    Not to shit-post, but you are the same group that bitched about PL hot drops against armed Supers? But now you camp jump bridges and POSes with supers? Just wanted to be sure. Now you have lost the right to complain. Not to say dead ships are bad ships, because that's false. im just tired of the "well its only gay when PL does it, because we get massive (read: 4 inch) erections, whenever a comparison comes up, because we have to chest-beat"

    Nice nyx kill, and a good load of capitals killed during xxXxX evaccing. At risk of being mass thumb-downed by the -a- back-patting crew I must say though that constantly telling everyone you're great and trying to convince people you're better than PL because you killed a super is really tiresome and embarrassing to read. Just be -a-, don't try and be anyone else because you'll do fine on your own. https://www.pandemic-legion.com/killboard/view_pi

      AAA and PL are nothing alike, and I don't think anyone in either alliance would claim otherwise.

Ever since the evac started, it's all "OMG we all gonna die" type articles, FYI most pilots who know "how to fly" already moved their assets safely, let's talk about that for a change?

            It's not about the fact of the death of the alliance, it's about how it's brought to the public. Flying through heavy camped system with billion worth assets – takes balls.
            Poking dead body with a stick from behind your cap-fleet buddies and then making it an epic story – is something else…

    In what universe would that ever happen? XiX has ruined their own PVP reputation and broken a NIP treaty all in one go. No one fears them and no one trusts them, so why would anyone "negotiate" with them? That's sheer foolishness.

  13. Chestbeating...

    Chestbeating at its finest :) Title mentions only "xXDEATHXx", then we read "Legion of xXDEATHXx". Correct me if I am wrong, but nearly all these kills you are talking about are from "Shadow of xXDEATHXx", the (former-)renters (formerly) living in DroneLands. Those indeed die in droves, but that is of little to no actual consequence to X.I.X. If slaughtering renters makes -A- troops happy, good for them :)

    "Legion of xXDEATHXx" actual losses in the evac stand right now at 3 carriers and 1 empty JF. Another JF died in lowsec (go figure…), and one might mention two Freighters killed one week before the evac order went out. That's it, and it is hardly an 'evacuation gone wrong' for an alliance of this size.

    Probably the only part I agree with you would be that 'the future of this once powerful alliance is currently uncertain'. Time will tell I guess…

      they are the vassals that the legion bases its empire off of, so all of the noobs, jews, and carebears are in a different alliance and that makes losses unimportant to the legion?

      Shadow is a mix of Legion alts and Legion renters. They are very much a part of LoD, in fact most LoD freighters alts are actually in Shadow not LoD.

    3. Shadowy guy

      One of the bigges reasons why Legion didnt loose that many is because they had been evacing for weeks befor they gave the evac order to Shadow.

      Also every one should remember that the relation ship between Shadow corps and Legion is purely financial. we pay them to use their space nothing more. and only the ultra carebares with no fucking brains would think that Legion would come and defend their assets.

    Big question we are debating is do we keep going around EVE anticlockwise razing all in our path as we go and freeing up space to real/new alliances? There is some serious housekeeping needed and noone else seems to be kicking out the truely terrible alliances that are squatting the north, NC was bad.. but truely.. not this bad until the very end.
