Boodabooda made a War Update for TEST Alliance, here it is:

First off, I apologize for the largely empty SOTA. I dicked it all up like a moron. In a way you le redditors can understand, I friendzoned you all. I’m not too proud to admit when I fuck up, and I’m working to actually try and fix things that broke after Testival. Also fuck you I’m still new to this shit.

This is going to be a long one, because everyone knows post length is directly related to penis length, and PGL whipped his out first.There’s a lot of information you guys deserve that I haven’t been providing for the last week or two, and you should really hear it from me instead of scrouging through various forums to get it

C.R.E.A.M.

I’m going to get this out of the way first. Financially we’re finally to the point where I need to ask people to contribute. We’ve been welping things pretty much since I took over, and the wallets are finally worn out.

Of course, TEST isn’t relying entirely on enterprising individuals to bear the extra burden. We have a few plans in motion that should hopefully pull us up by our bootstraps and prepare us for the next few months’ worth of doing things. Additionally, Packetninja has a few monkies working on pounding out a new TEST finances application – he’s a bit busy being poor to do it himself. More transparency will arrive as soon as they’re done (which I’m sure will be conveniently timed to occur when we’re no longer poor, unintentionally).

Long term we’re still looking alright, but war isn’t meant to be easy or cheap; that said, I want more than anything to keep you guys flying spaceships, fighting, and having fun – that’s why we subscribe, right?

In fact, half of the reimbursement queue was taken care of just today.

If you would like to contribute your cash or energy to help the alliance financial situation, details will be kept in this thread (https://forum.please…ove-and-beyond/ ). Additionally, watch for further news posts with details about things like war bond programs.

Speaking of war…

WAR

PAST


When the CFC first launched their invasion, I warned you all that it would be a long drawn-out war, and so far that’s been pretty much true. It’s shown us some of our own strengths, and taught us where we need to improve. The announcement helped us garner the support of a hell of a lot of people across EVE. Our strength in 1-SMEB was legendary, and inspired both fear and respect in alliances all over the game, but Goons throwing themselves on our swords was a great reason for many groups to come get a piece of the action.

The CFC thought we would be weakened, softened, and ripe for killing after our skirmishes in Delve – and they just happened to be in the market for a new home. And yet here we are weeks later only short about 10 systems. A far cry from the last time Goons led a war and swept through a region in roughly a week.

Meanwhile, the CFC propaganda engine tried to claim I had burned our relationships across the galaxy, in reality the CFC were the only group entirely unwilling to work with us. Pretty much.

We currently have the N3 living in Hophib, Fountain, and nearby Aridia. They almost foam at the mouth at the thought of killing CFC, and we’ve given them a good chance to do it. We also have various smaller groups on our side nearby, and we have allies staged to harass much of CFC territory and access – we even have a relationship with 401K as they break down structures and fleets in the north. We initially worked with BL as well, out of a mutual distaste for Goons; unfortunately for us, BL’s desire for cash and killmails finally led them to drop out of the war, and go back to killing Revenants and otherwise elite-pvping against anyone with a spaceship.

PRESENT


By now you’ve seen Beffah’s military update, the first in what will hopefully be somewhat frequent rolling status updates by various leadership and FCs. Maybe you’ve attended one of her military specific Q&As, or posted in one of the Q&A forum threads. There’s a professional, god-like, legendary N3 update cross-posted on our forums as well.

Initially, the CFC rolled through northern Fountain as we took our time moving to Karan. They cut a deal with Sort Dragon for the remaining o7m8 stations and sov, killing at least one supercap build belonging to someone TEST promised wouldn’t die to our hands – Sort Dragon wanted to screw us for a while, and finally had his shot. It seems like the CFC were almost taking credit S2N Citizens/Nulli Legio heist, until they saw how mad it made everyone. I think the total damage count was a stolen 400b ISK and 211 systems left sov-less, forcing the N3 to fly home and fix things.

Once we moved to Karan, things got VERY exciting. We’ve managed to put up an incredible defense against the brute force of thousands of northmen. Currently, the CFC holds a whopping TEN systems in Fountain. Embarassing, almost.

Shit, I didn’t even know z9pp existed until we lost 27 carriers there.

If you look at that map link, you’ll notice that all of the o7m8 systems save 4-EP were safely returned to TEST control. I guess this means that technically the CFC has lost more stations in this war than we have, but they did also drop a new green dong in 4-ep and may even move there still.

The stunning infiltration of N3 and the subsequent loss of their space knocked them out of the war… for a whole 18 hours. They, with the help of PL (and I think a little from TEST), crunched through a mind-blowing 211 systems in a day (at a rate of 9 minutes per station, or something silly). Even the goon propaganda machine was knocked for a loop, and what began as all but taking credit eventually turned into thinly veiled attempts to suck PL’s dick (shameless plug of my response and twitter). During these hours, the CFC (clearly high on smug) put 20 Fountain systems into reinforce – only to cower at home as we saved 19 the next day.

We’ve since lost Z9PP, but not before an absolutely immense fight for the system. TEST is a young alliance, all said and done, and we made a few rookie mistakes with fleet coordination and watching clocks. We were saved when a CCP typo knocked the server offline for a brief intermission, just long enough to let us escape and shovel thousands of goon rage-posts onto the EVE-O forums. I won’t sugar coat it, that was a hell of a fun fight, but it could’ve meant the end of TEST capfleets for weeks, or maybe months. Everyone in leadership learned a little, though, and hopefully we won’t let such a sacrifice happen again… or at least we’ll save it for something actually important. I was there for half of Z9PP, but I can’t do a proper recap in a post that’s already 1200 words long. Here’s the Manfred Sidious one (warning, smug triggers: TMC link)

FUTURE


Lately we’ve been timing a lot of stuff for AUTZ due to the dominance of our side’s combined strength in the wee hours of the night. We don’t have toomany moontime FCs, but under the leadership of people like Canaris Roshaak and Progodlegend, our combined TEST/N3 fleets have had great success pushing back against the CFC. As PGL said, things aren’t PERFECT, but we are pretty dominant. I almost wish I was unemployed so I could go on these fleets every night… almost.

Some of you have expressed interests in joining the alternative fleetcomps our allies fly. To that end, I can happily say right now that we’ve worked some technical problems out, and there will be a lot more mixed-alliance Rokh/Domi/Goku/Talwar fleets, and potentially some new compositions coming up soon (not megathrons, though, that’s a bad idea).

On our end, you absolutely need to get your proper ships for our doctrines. Realistically, you should be able to have a ship available for every major doctrine we use. In case you forgot, make sure you have ships for:

Rokhtrine

Foxcats

ECM support fleet (blackbird supremacy)

ShieldOracleFleet (as mentioned in the Beffah mil update, more coming soon)

Bombers

Talwars

… and hell, dust off the Ahacs too.

Newer pilots should prioritize ECM fleet blackbirds, talwars, maybe bombers. Older pilots should have enough SP to be useful in at least a few of those comps – remember, Logi is always baller status. We’re not adding a new battleship doctrine yet, but we are looking at dozens of options for fleetcomp improvements and changes. We’re looking for the best option, and throwing more big expensive battleships into the mix isn’t it, as far as we have decided.

Additionally, I’m currently working with various leadership groups to make sure everyone is trying to improve together as best we can. If you feel I need to pay more attention to your specific bunch of nerdlets, let me know – otherwise, rest assured that I and the rest of leadership are working very hard to improve areas of TEST you guys have been talking about in a negative light.

But if we’re going to continue enjoying the hell out of this war, everyone in TEST has to want it. We need to be intensely focused, we need to be as strong as possible, we ALL need to give this war 100%.

Simply put, this war is unlike anything TEST has ever done. It’s going to take more effort, more time and energy, more coordination and communication than we’ve ever had to pull together. We’re showing how we can play with the established powerbloc alliances, and we need to make sure we’re operating at a proper level. The alternative is packing everything up and finding somewhere to take an EVEcation for a few weeks, and TEST deserves far better than being kicked out of our home just yet, and we’ve all put too much in to quit now. I’ve seen TEST perform far better, I know TEST can fight far stronger, we all know we can do much more than we have been over the last few days.

FCs, give me your talents. Logistics, give me your persistence. Recon, give me your eyes. Leadership, give me your voices. Mentors, give me your patience. TEST, give me your strength and dedication, and we ABSOLUTELY CAN win this war.

We’ve blunted the CFC’s edge even by half-assing a lot of things during their invasion. Outside of EU time, the CFC has been reduced to shooting structures in bombers and wulfpax – and they still rarely have the balls to use caps. Remember, when the goons are too afraid to undock, it’s a victory for TEST and Fountain defense.

If you can do more than just X up for fleets, please join the various interest groups that need more bodies (Logistics, Recon, FC groups, anything). Most of their recruitment posts can be founs here.

We need to stop their constant harassment, instead of letting it proceed unopposed. This requires FCs, coordination, and a hell of a lot of fights. Kill their cowardfleet bombers and their backup frigfleets. And when the big fights need to happen, give me the famous TEST 3 or 4 full fleets of on-doctrine ships. You’re demanding that we clean up the Fountain invasion and start pushing north; if you give me the power to do so, we can make it happen.

NARRATIVE

Some people want some kind of story, some reason to log in. But it’s pretty simple, really.

First, stating the obvious, the CFC has decided they deserve our space more than we do. They want to remove us from our home, for the sake of having a little extra cash.


WE WILL return the favor.

The CFC have been kind enough to give us the opportunity to drive them off push them right out of nullsec, and WE WILL NOT LET IT GO TO WASTE. As I said earlier, we aren’t the only people who have a reason to kill the CFC, and Goons know full well their empire will not survive against our full strength. This is why they metagame and try to drive us apart. They’ve never faced a fight like this, and after trying to provoke us, they resorted to throwing the first punch in order to try and knock us out as quickly as possible.


THE GOONS HAVE STARTED THIS WAR, BUT IT WILL ONLY END WHEN WE STOP FIGHTING. If you give up now, it’s over way too soon – and I’M NOT DONE WITH TEST YET.

That’s all the reason I need to continue dumping my energy into TEST, that’s all the reason you should need to log in and murder CFC fleets with me. Trust me to continue doing the right thing, even when – ESPECIALLY when I make mistakes. Volunteer to help take the load off stressed mid-tier leadership. Join fleets constantly, or make your own. There’s always something or someone to kill.

Let’s break apart these invaders and push them straight through Cloud Ring, Fade, Pure Blind, Deklein and VFK, and all the way back out to lowsec on the other side.

They thought we were going to be an easy target and roll right through us, but we stooped them cold. No more land, no more space, not another station. We stand now united with all of New Eden against these mongrels who threaten us. Every man to his ship. Fleet up. To the coon hourdes that have invaded us. We demand you pack and leave our space…

    I usually don’t like to give good advise to an adversary but TEST aren’t evil people and some would probably much rather be in CFC so for what it’s worth, I will share my honest opinion on where TEST needs to take this. Right now you are a wounded beast. You have members ready to bail and find other places to go. You probably are starting to realize that you can’t win this so the logical move is to try to save face and save members. No matter what, you are going to lose people. That can’t be helped. You can minimize that number and so you need to start seriously thinking about how to reduce your losses. People lose and gain SOV all the time, don’t let your pride destroy you.

    You have some really good choices because you aren’t a hated bunch. Any alliance would probably love to have you. Going out on a long limb here because I really don’t know, but I am betting that the CFC would also love to have you as allies. Certainly you have NC., PL, PIZZA, and half a dozen others who would probably find a way to include you. I admit that I am a little biased here but CFC, Black Legion, NC., look at them and see who is willing and who has room to fit you. I think you would be absolutely crazy not to consider the CFC. I know that you would have members that would quit but many will stay and the idea here is to save TEST as a larger alliance. In this game war is just business. This is a game of adversarial CORPORATIONS and so there will always be war for resources, power, and influence.

    Can you continue on? Of course. I have no doubt that you can last for another month or two but it will most likely damage you to a point where you will lose a lot more than if you call it quits within the next few weeks and try to come to some agreement with either the CFC, some other faction, or both.

    I know being on top is euphoric, and you may get there again, but right now I believe you would be smart to try to contain the situation. Make smart choices. The people who are the core of TEST will understand and yes a portion may move on but I think you want to do that before you a bled to death.

    TEST, we all badger each other when we fight but you can’t win, you won’t win, and right now you need to be realistic with your goals before you ride the alliance into extinction.

    Good luck in your game.

      Sounds lame and bluedonutey. Test don’t want to bend over and take The Mittani’s cock you half wit . . . they’d rather fight then diplo soft blow their way out of everything. While that may be a realistic choice for someone in the CFC to talk rather than shoot their way out . . . that isn’t Test. This is a game and games are ment to be fun . . . it isn’t fun to suck dick to save face . . .

        If your comparing CFC warfare in Fountain it goes like it did against RDN

        a very slow burning torch slowy consuming all.
        CFC have continue to rely on the same tactics as in that war.

        1# Burn moons (income)
        2# Reinforce everything to force defender to repair
        3# slowly attack and take system
        4# fight only the fights that gives you wins.
        5# deny enemy fights where they might win.

        the tactic goes out to grief the enemy of a fun time and give your side a fun time.

        as long as CFC knows Test got a weak wallet a prolonged war is in CFC favour. because once the SRP reinbursements gets behind its a lost cause. And as CFC got the initiative in the fight your dancing after there pipe. taking the initiative is what makes or breaks wars.

        1. Who has more time?

          I thought test had the more valuable moons now. So the longer the war the more time test can collect off of them.

          It seems CFC are the ones who are on a short timeline since they have the less valuable space.

            No
            Test “Had” more valued moons.

            they have been shreeding moons in Fountain to CFC and shredding them in delve to Pizza …
            while upkeeping 2 regions.

            CFC also got a bigger wallet more stored isk
            while Test was living Adhoc with more limited isk stored away.

            also Test have welped more “Expensive” fleets then CFC during this campain

            at the same time as they got robbed for 250b? (B0rt)

            and there allied got a cost ticked of sovdrop for a round 600b

            no CFC have spent less isk then test this war and i just realized

            Im sorry but Test is on decline and sooner or later they will retreat to Delve to rebuild. The rumor about them having problems with SRP (If this is true the shit will hit the fan very quickly)

            and from my analysis i doubt N3 and PL will stick around if they continue to soak up the losses as they have while inflicting almost no pain them selfs.

          2. who has more time?

            The stockpiles that the cfc has are finite. Relying on finite resources means you are fighting against the clock. The moons are infinite resources. Whoever has the more valuable ones has more time.
            Also renters are an infinite resource. I don’t know who has more.

            I thought cfc were the ones who lost moons that weren’t very valuable anyway.

            Are you saying the cfc owns more of the valuable moons in fountain?

      When you make a plea like that, you are actually showing a lack of confidence in your team`s potential to win this campaign.

      Also, why would Test suddenly side with you and end what can be the greatest war in Eve`s history? Most people on both sides are having fun right now. Why stop it with a move like you are proposing?

    why is TEST going broke this may not be the main reason but its a contributor like most alliances TEST lack a coherent and organised industry backbone to support and help fund their war. theres exceptionaly well organised indy only corps stuck in empire unable to get into alliances because their viewed as carebears well who needs them more now alliances like TEST. the game mechanics has changed massively yet alliances fail to adapt to those mechanics and die because nobody is in charge of directing indy logistics to support a war. even leet PvP alliances are gonna have to bite the bullet and admit indy corps to supply their adventures.if the fountain war has taught alliances like TEST no indy supplying ships then no pilots to fly in fleets no fleets you lose.

      The gloves are coming off.

      I guess some people in TEST are dead serious about keeping their little spaceship game empire alive.

      Pretty sure the same can be said for CFC as well (if they’re pushed to the edge).

      Reminds me of the time when some rich Russian dude caused the plex market to crash after injecting 70 Grands into the game.

      Yeah that is right. I am the rich guy currently pumping RL money into Test`s wallet. What do you want, when you enhirit millions from someone in the family, you get to have a lot of time on your hands and lots of money you dont know what to do with.

    It might be a shock for readers who hate the CFC with all their guts.

    But realite shows that CFC is winning, it goes slow, but week after week we make progress.

    And while doing so slowly breaking morale and draining massive amounts of isk from our enemy’s.
    (The new megathron Doctrine is showing results on epic scale compared to the old Tengu doctrine.)

    It wont be long from now untill many recall their forces out of fountain and leave Test to their fate.

    Their fleet numbers is what makes the meatshield for N3 / PL + Friends, Test is showing they are low on isk and members do not log in anymore after losing many battleships who are still not reimbursed.
    (Losing 4 rohks in 2 days is not something that boosts morale, specialy when you dont get a penny back for it.)

    The moment Test fleets dont fill up with numbers for importand fights the more N3 / PL lose any desire to hold of the CFC who is trucking trough all the elite coalitions on slow pace.

    While most of you hoped that CFC would not make progress and even forced back to VFK against the elite coalitions the oposite is happening..

    Nulli fleets arent filling up either as you can read, Test fleets arent filling up as you can read, PL is slowly moving away from Fountain to.

    It seems this Fountain war will be over much sooner then anyone expected.

    Also Elo Knight is revanent now and hired by CFC to make matters much worse for the defending forces.

    Give this war a month, maybe 2 months and Fountain is in CFC’s hands.

      This repeated whining – it doesn’t matter by which side – in an attempt to try and demoralise the opposition actually has the reverse effect – it makes the other side more resolute for revenge and makes you appear as the one trying to shore up your morale by looking at the small picture in a large scale war. If you want to win points in the PSYOPS/MISO battle keep it very short and very focused – such as #SMUG.

    Hi all. Non-player here, checking out the eve news to get a feel for the game.

    I don’t even have an eve account yet, and I’m already annoyed by CFC. They harbor a traitor, they wield psychological warfare like children (maybe they want TEST to underestimate their IQ?), and someone once thought that their title was funny because it had a swear in it.

    When I get round to making my eve account, I’ll be attacking CFC. I hope TEST leaves a few survivors so I can wale on them. :)

      hey there, EN24’s owner here – I recall playing the trial in april 08′ and hearing all the hate against B0B and Co. – While i never took part of that fight (i went nullsec around 09′ and never looked back) there are endless amazing wars and adventures you can be part of.

      So give it a try, but be adviced that EVE is a bit slow game to get into, hard play properly and even years old veterans are prone to dumb mistakes.

    2. As riverini stated, EvE can be a bit slow to get into. It’s better to start slow, learning the mechanics and eventually jumping into the bloodlust. There will be no shortage of wars anytime soon, so you’ll get there.

      And for all the negative feelings towards the CFC, they are one of the most organized entities in eve online. They may have a completely different play style but as someone who has been in the gaming industry for quite a while, it’s easy to say that differing play styles are extremely healthy for any game.

      The CFC being who they are have created an antagonist in EvE Online that even the Developers were unable to do. Sansha who? Kill a Goon.

        In watching several tutorial videos on youtube, and also reading several text guides, something called “the cliff” is mentioned repeatedly. I think it’s when the hand-holding ends and you get dropped into this massive open world with no immediately obvious next step.

        A drive to get better at ISK gathering, PVE, and eventually PVP against CFC (and others like them) will help motivate me up that cliff, so you’re right about them being the perfect antagonist.

        Besides, CFC appear to make the game more fun. Charismatic (and somewhat broke) TEST rebels against the evil CFC empire? This couldn’t be more star-wars if it tried. 😉

        P.S. To clarify, I don’t hate the CFC players. I just want to break their ships. 😀

        1. There is a point where the Tutorial will up and leave you in front of the local grocery store with a bucket, half a cocacola and a melted snickers bar.

          At that point, your best bet is to look to the help channel or even look at some of the corps that are recruiting. You will understand far more about eve with experience and guidance than you will from the tutorial.

          The biggest mistake of most people is thinking they can “solo” like most other major MMO’s until they are powerful and appealing to others. Not the case in eve. Get friends in the beginning and you’ll stick around..
