Well, TEST Alliance seems to be going for payback after the fall of Fountain, here is the official announcement:

——– transmission starts —

The campaign to cause a FAilcascade.

Today marks the beginning of our first campaign as a strong independent non-sov holding alliance who don’t need no allies. Operation Waterdong is focused on one region, our old home, Fountain:

FA is in a very vulnerable spot, as is any alliance that relocates to a new location. We will use this to our advantage, harass them. We will nuke their homedef fleets, we will deny their members income. We won’t stop till FA starts crying for goons to help, and even then, that’s just more targets to shoot.

Predditors will be our vanguard in this campaign, they have already begun hot drop operations and have cyno alts throughout the region dropping on ratters and the like. Their actions have already stirred up defense fleets that our non-covert fleets should be able to assist in dispersing and generate content for them. SilentMajority and Unmada are coordinating these black ops efforts and if you have the skills for a stealth bomber or recon be sure to apply to predditors.

If you don’t though, we will be running plenty of non-covert fleets into the heart of Fountain, with the Chimera and Unicorn constellations only 2 jumps away using titan bridges, we will be able to respond to the fleets predditors stir up, and perhaps stir up some home defence fleets of our own for predditors to hot drop on top of.

This campaign will heavily utilize blackops crews in conjunction with our subcap fleets. We will show high degrees of cooperation, with one of them often being the anvil, while the other is the hammer

This campaign is all about having fun and not needing to alarm clock to defend that station timer or kill that IHub, we are going to roam in cheap ships that are fun to fly, and we are going to make FA hate the fact that they are living in OUR space.

Let’s have some fucking fun.

The Campaign Commander for Operation Waterdong will be:

Husker Admin, The only named Admin in TEST alliance!

      I’m sure lol…. Everyone knows getting targeted by black ops is so fun. Pretty much the only chance you will have to get kills(if Test is doing it right) is to bait, and even then your talking about catching a recon or two. I’m sure you will have a ton of fun lol…..

      2. Test does not have the patience to just use black ops fleets. They will be sending normal fleets. Like that naga fleet they sent yesterday.

    I feel like test has a real credibility issue right now… If they cannot have some success with this campaign, than I fear they are done for….. They said they would defend delve than left, said they would move to low sec than didnt, now they want to attack fountain….. Attacking fountain in this way is the right decision… just don’t screw it up. I want to see a strong test again.

        What were the TEST pilots doing, approaching with MWDs on one at a time in 10 second increments? That is so bloody awful, I suspect fake just to make sense of it. :'(

          Ah no matter, that was over 80 minutes, makes sense now, TEST were taking them on piecemeal, failing, but at least this wasn’t one big 4 vs 50 Alamo stand. Props to the FA guys for having fun.

        They couldn’t failcascade an alliance if they tried.

        They literally fail to understand how to do it and this operation is a joke.

    Do i honestly believe they will get any results whatsoever ? NO.
    But this is actually a step i respect, instead of disbanding and/or switching sides (giving head for sov i meant) they actually intend to grow a pair. I guess they’ll have to disband once they fail miserably .

      What they need to do is get some alliance level FC’s and get them to actually stay in alliance, with the amount of players they have they should be able to fuck with almost anyone, they just lack the experience and leadership that they need.

      +1 for not dying and actually giving enough of a fuck to stick about, i cant remember the last time i see a alliance hang around after getting evicted.

        there is solar… besides this test move is retarded, instead of going to catch and assisting in securing some space for them and tribe they are going to suicide fleet after fleet without any hope of actually achieving anything, further killing themselves while tribe dies by itself to -DD-, -A- coven and the whole rusrus gang.

          BLOPs are a fucker to counter though, even if you bait and catch them its a couple of hundred SB’s, even with no moons test can afford that i would think, they have shed a lot of weight (read hangers on, looking at you ENL-I) and those that are down with the fight will stay, those with no stamina will find pastures new, either way this can only be good in my eye’s.

          I hope TEST come out stronger after this, but leadership and FC’s are key to any success.

            It’s less an issue of affording the stealth bombers as it is one of affording the morale hits from even a few complete failures. If they do well, they’ll get people fleeting up again. If they keep whelping… then it won’t matter how cheap the ships are, their pilots are going to keep seeing it as a continuation of the losses.

            August 20, 2013 at 8:44 pm
          2. Aaron

            Their BLOPS aren’t doing too bad. Wish i could say the same for the rest of TEST.

            Though they dont seem to drop more than a handfull – could one day bite them in the backside for being counter-dropped or something.

            ah, if we are going WAY back and including ones that died completely to be reformed as well as those that were never really relavent to start with, then there’s a few others:
            Cult of War
            Fidelas Constans
            Gentleman’s Agreement
            Brothers of Tangra (used to be Sons of Tangra)
            Northern Coalition (into DOT)
            The Kadeshi
            Legio Astartes
            etc.

            Basically, all of eve’s smaller pet/renter alliances. I was more thinking the powerhouses of EVE that are still around. Razor was given most of it’s space and couldn’t stand on their own without blowing the horn of goondor. Same can be said of C02 and EXE, while PL dropped sov on purpose to be ‘elite pvp mercs’.

            August 22, 2013 at 1:03 am
          2. Marcus

            PL didn’t drop Sov. on purpose, they lost it, and more then once. EXE was a BoB pet when they lost their space the first time, so “horn of goondor” has nothing to do with them losing or keeping space, and CO2 losing space has nothing to with it ether, CO2 just jumps from one coalition to the next losing space all over eve.

          3. lulz

            Kinda funny when people say things don’t count because they don’t deem them relevant. Test has been sovless for like 3 weeks*(they are not even really sovless yet it’s been such a short time, nobody has actually even grinded out the sov. they are abandoning) and they are getting props for not failcascading? But these other alliances, that some random dude doesn’t deem relevant don’t count, even when they haven’t cascaded after years of no sov., or been evicted multiable times.

            Also lol @ PL dropped sov on purpose to be ‘elite pvp mercs’, If you buy that, I got some oceanside property to sell you in Nevada. Literally didn’t want all those r64 moons in fountain anyways. The same moons that made PL rich, and made them one of the biggest supercap fleets a single alliance has ever had, didn’t want that passive isk income anymore, pay no attention to the fact we left well we were being attacked, and none of our blues came to help us. lol…..

  12. War Anyone.

    Defeating the Goonswarm should be considered the loftiest goal in game at this point, and although TEST might be a lot of things at least they haven’t taken they’re “we’re leet mentality” to provi so they can pad their kb after the embarrassing defeat in fountain.

    IDK how everyone else feels like their doing anything significant after the cfc proved in Fountain that they can kick the shit out of anyone anywhere.

    If you’re going to attack my last point describe to me a believable(even if not-yet in existence) coalition that could beat them.

          “E-Space-Honor”.

          I dunno. I think Test are acting like an obsessive ex-girlfriend, at least if they went down to providence or Factional Warfare they could train the next generation of FCs without looking even worse than FA’s claimed to be.

          Also the war didn’t start with 13 vs 1, the two coalitions were pitted against one another was actually heavily sided against the CFC. After defeats, we pulled our shit together and pushed back, breaking the weak collaboration with help with outside factors.

    This is stupid, Catch is wide open for grabs so you can make a start again, and you do something like take on people you can’t take on? Or at the very best, be able to grief them while they still get sov? Seems like a waste of time that could have been spent on yourselves securing a new home.

    Seriously… hint hint, catch is wide open for you to take.
