The war is over. The Cluster Fuck Coalition won. TEST could not hold up under the constant strain of around the clock warfare. Their Saint Paul’s Cathedral burned to the ground when the fire watch quit. Some will say it was inevitable. That’s not worth the pixels needed to display it, but that’s what they’ll say nonetheless.

I don’t think it was ever inevitable. With that way of thinking, the real Saint Paul’s Cathedral would have burned to the ground and England would have been crushed under Nazi boots. Who outside England (and not a few inside I’ll warrant) would have bet on England emerging from that onslaught the victor? I would not have. If you put the privilege of 20/20 hindsight aside, neither would have you.

But the Fountain war is behind us now and it was not the Battle of Britain. The big blue donut is no more. Many would say that is for the best. But is a CFC donut any better? CFC members are already working at removing TEST sovereignty from Fountain. The newly conquered areas are being used by Goonswarm leadership as a reward to their “pets” who fought well. I know this is already happening. Besides, it only makes sense.

It’ll take 30 days for the sovereignty change to finish, give or take. It will take more time for the war weary to recuperate. Even with ship reimbursement, goons et al will need to refill their personal wallets. They will want to settle in and make their new nests home. I figure that’ll take another month perhaps. It really depends on the individual.

What then? Where does null-sec go from there? No, I don’t mean it in a figurative sense. I mean it literally. Where do they go? With the big blue donut replaced with an even bigger blue donut, what happens now?

What do you think happens. We’ve seen it before. Where did they go at the height of the first big blue donut? Yep, they went to high-sec – where 60% of New Eden’s capsuleers reside and nearly 100% of the tears. What else will bored CFC pilots do when there’s no one in null-sec they’re allowed to fight – again?

Add to this the possibility the winter expansion might be industry significant. Remember that high-sec POCO comment made by CCP Soundwave during Fanfest? Don’t remember? Here, listen (and read) for yourself. Don’t have the time. Fine. He said, “My big dream is to let you take them in empire as well.” He also said, “These have so much potential.” He called them a “low level kind of sov or ownership thing.” How lucrative would high-sec become to an alliance like Goonswarm if it could collect taxes from PI carebears by owning all the Custom Offices? That’s like free ISK. Do you think that might get Goonswarm’s attention? They attacked TEST and fought a months long war for moons. How much easier to take high-sec POCOs from “smaller industrial tycoons” as CCP Soundwave called them?

Carebears of New Eden, you had better start preparing now. It will be a long winter. I can hear the howling already. The hyenas are coming.[1]

      Imo problem is that noone is really going to make an real alternative to EvE because they today make only games for masses, EvE like games are only for certain population. And lack of alternatives makes people play EvE. I know some who would go to other game but they just didnt find any other like EvE.

      When CCP would have a real competition they might change theirs approach, but now I dont see that happening.

    I can see no logical reason why the major NPC Empires would let 0.0 alliances come in and blow up their customs offices and put up their own. On a logical role playing basis they would have sub-contracted Interbus to run their customs offices in HS space. That being said it would be fun!

      except CCP Goonwave thinks its a good idea, kinda like how he wants less in EVE and more features to require a separate game to play, despite DUST becoming the utter failure it is.

      Every idea he has had has not only passed, its also been aimed at either helping goons, or fucking over everyone not goons.

    If the CFC boogeyman is coming for high sec pocos, then riddle me this: Why do you care so much about the CFC doing it, rather than worrying about any null-sec coalition doing it? Are the others so much more altruistic as to be less a threat? Perhaps its just not so bad if NCdot or N3 were to do such a thing.

      Its more like that the CFC can replace at least 80-90% of the POCOs in a small amount of time while the rest would need months or ever years to do so.
      If CFC does take 80% of the hi-sec POCOs then they can have what ever tax they want on them, plus since there will be no one to threaten their empire at 0.0 they will be able to focus on hi-sec and send hordes of pilots to replace the POCOs.

      P.S. ANYONE who could do that would be bad news for hi-sec players, not just CFC.

        Holy smokes, I wish we were as awesome as you think we are. And I think you’re also underestimating the other coalitions abilities too. The recovery from the N3 sovereignty glitch was pretty impressive.

        But in the end, I doubt something like this could be a problem – It sounds like a pain in the ass. Would cause more headache than benefit.

          Last time I checked Caps and supers couldn’t enter high sec, which means that some other coalitions, like N3 or alliances like PL, wont be able to use their strongest ships.
          Anyway I’m not saying that they will do it. All I’m saying is that they are capable of doing it, either by using CFC or alt corps who wont be “red flags” for the rest of EvE…

    Footnote about mangled metaphor or not, you might as well have said ‘the vultures are coming’. Hyenas don’t howl. They are, in fact, part of suborder feliformia – closer to cats than they are to wolves.

            Or… just maybe… the rest of Eve didn’t care that much about the war between Test and Goons.. at least care enough to the degree that you wanted. You like to assume the rest really care which Coalition between the 2 what seem to be of identical nature duking it out for a specific region filled with moons. Sorry not everyone was in on it, and sorry, not everyone cared. Whether it be Bob, Test or Goons winning… it didn’t really change the rest of Eve. Just the specific groups involved. Stop assuming everyone was against you, because quite frankly, that wasn’t even remotely the case at all. It was just 2 bigger groups than have ever been done before. That’s it. Its an anchievement to itself… but its not what you make it out to be.

Everything else are hollow speechs and hypochrisy. Deal with it or go play WoW.

I believe that all of my statement is true that whole of EVE did not fight the CFC in Fountian which is what I was saying. I am also unsure about this “white knight” robes that you are talking about which is not in my comment out all. Nor about eve being about profit, which I don’t agree about with, unless you are RTMing, then eve is about fun. I never expressed any hate to the CFC in my post so again don’t know where that is coming from.

If Vince or Shadoo tries to take whatever SOV is still available, we will curb stomp those faggots, take their SOV, then give it away to someone outside the CFC.

      PL’s and NC. days of supremacy are over, this was proven in the Fountain war. Sure, PL pussied-up and didn’t show for 95% of it, but even if they did it wouldn’t have mattered at all. Let’s face it, all of EVE Online subscribers will play the game that the CFC let’s them play, and they will play it how we dictate, or face the juggernaut that is the CFC. By the way, even high sec won’t be safe for anyone that rubs us the wrong way.

    I predict the next great war will be decided on who can troll the other’s renters’ space the most to prevent income. Somehow I feel like its Russian’s who probably got this one in the bag. All they know is logoffski.

    No matter how u rub it and spin it. When space is fought for, people do what it takes to win. Thats the bottom line in EVE. so deals will be made, coalitions will form and the whole circle of the blue donut will continue.

    so with the yelling of killing CFC.. i would think there would be a need for it. at least the coalitions to be formed should they fall will be smaller and balance would be put back in order in null.

    TEST was just a symptom. CFC is also just a symptom of declining diversity in EVE. The real problem is the lack of active leaders and FCs, who wish to make their own path. The cause of this disease is, that leaders and FCs know, that any effort they would put into building their own path would be destroyed by superapital swarm of GSF or PL+N3. Or all of them together. As the result, they all end up joining PL or N3, to become another brick in the wall instead of making the sov map more colourful.

      I was going to wave this off as more horrible en24 posting, but

      There is no evidence to the contrary. Well put.

    Mabrick is a prophet. He predicted that carebears will have to hide from goons one day before the ice interdiction started. Clearly a wizard.

    I am surprised to find CFC is not allowed to shoot anyone in Null sec.I await the N3 CFC blue report that is clearly coming next.

    At least Mabrick can mangle a metaphor in a very presidential fashion.

    I tried to warn them. I tried to tell Montolio. No one listened, and instead booted and shunned me for speaking against status quo. Well, status quo got you your ases handed to you.

    Test was dead before the fountain war started, NCDot and PL
    where never going to take Goons space no matter how badly they played or by how
    well test did. They turned up to shoot some Goons and where always getting paid
    off by the same Goons they turned up to shoot – in short it kept the masses
    happy and kept things blowing up and therefore the markets moving.

    It was purely another act in the everlasting mittens puppet
    show, now the blocks are getting put in place for the entire of Eve to be
    rented out and soundwave giving his mate Mits a way to tax high sec, to offset
    the loss of tech as its had to finally replaced.

    “I don’t think it was ever inevitable” – You
    haven’t paid attention to anything that happens in Eve then, PL have always
    been in Mitts pocket, Vince has always been basically PL bitch and has always
    had active toons in PL, as i said above they were not in fountain to take sov
    off Goons but to make it look like a real war and get the grunts in gear.

    Genius in one way, pathetic in another – it depends on the
    level of social retardation you currently sit at but for me when a game becomes
    a social experiment of how to deal with masses of online players. All of which
    pay to play a game and you are basically ripping them all off cheating with
    your mates who happen to be the developers of the said game, all in aid of
    preserving power in some online game – hell even if you make a few quid out of
    it with rmt its still the kind of thing you would get a needle in your front
    temple lobe 80 years ago for. It surely does say something about someone’s
    mental stability to put that much effort of their live into maintaining this
    level of power though.

    The game is broken beyond repair, let’s face it – how do you
    fix fucked when now the people who make the decisions, people who run the
    security, people heading the think tanks to improve the game are the same
    people who spent years trying to figure out how to break the game by removing
    things which they couldn’t counter or use, so must be nerfed. To the point it literally
    left nothing but a blob game when they had the biggest blob.

    Same people who spent years exploiting, botting, cheating
    their way to making isk yet now we are expected to trust these same people have
    the best interests of the average gamer (actually lol a little there) at heart
    for anything.

    It’s all messed up, the good stuff got nerfed until it was a
    blob game, the csm gave too much direct access to CCP who have now basically
    been taken over from the inside out and we are watching the game become one
    massive fake game – a show put on for the masses but the puppeteers to entice
    them to dance for them.

    I’m pretty sure this isn’t what CCP had in mind all them
    years ago, it’s maybe not even what Mits was aiming to do, not to break the
    game but to win i suppose at it but inadvertently it has killed the game.

    Queue generic Goon response but as was put above – if I’m
    wrong then what now for eve? it has nowhere to go, nowhere to create conflict
    that doesn’t have a predetermined outcome which really in inevitable, so
    therefore makes it pointless to even try.

    The game simply has no way left to evolve, it’s entire point
    of a sandbox has gone because it isn’t that anymore – it’s finished but nobody
    remembered to roll the credits on Mittens screen for the ending sequence and
    now it’s in limbo until it gets turned off.

      sounds like youre despairing. goons and pl cannot stop you from undocking. so who gives a fuck about their cheating, scamming and metagaming? fine, they have nukes and you have a rusty knife. yet still, one can execute a succesful attack, with enough motivation and perseverance. But no, you want to play in the big boys arena, right? well guess what, its not up to you to decide which arena youre allowed to fight in. You can make choices as to which arena you would like to fight, but the choices have to be made years in advance :D

      isnt eve glorious?

      hey not saying i know any inside info or anything but there is a pretty simple solution to this problem that you are over-looking. restrict high sec POCO ownership to alliances that dont own null-sec sov. other restrictions could be put in aswell to limit what organizations can directly own a high sec POCO. There is of course no way to limit where the money eventually flows, but it will help keep null sec away and reward alliances with roots in a particular system and no assets outside of highsec.

    Who would want to fight the CFC? 10% TiDi is litterally the worst. Im sure Boat can’t even take a shit without causing 10% TiDi in the bathroom
