The following piece was sent after an inquiry regarding the propaganda Mondays, so keep in mind it is a bit one sided…

In a recent piece posted elsewhere about the Minmatar/Amarr war zone was described as ‘rumbling back into life’ I believe this to be completely true.

At the beginning of August, Biohazard. (arguably the Minmatar’s most powerful and active corporation) was taking a hiatus and a short break from any strategical operations. They took the time to boost their numbers make some isk and take some much needed R+R from the relentless defensive they had been putting up in the previous month. Not to mention the steamroll of past offensive operations against the Amarr. As of this time last week, they are on a full offensive campaign with their new alliance WINMATAR. The rollercoaster is indeed rumbling back into life.

-BIO-’s Military Director praying mantis01 had this to say;

praying mantis01 > We defeated amarr easily with superior tactics, and doctrines fighting massively outnumbered during our defensive (15 AHACS vc 40man BS down amarr fleet) most of the time smashing any hub bashing fleet whenever they tried to take a system.

praying mantis01 > demoralising them making many of their fcs stop fighting or leave militia entirely ie. Innovia / mnemic

praying mantis01 > youtube vids to prove it

The demoralization via skirmishing fleets, and a sizable portfolio of propaganda targeting the amarr FCs and most powerful entities would ultimately be the catalyst in Biohazard. and WINMATAR. pushing an offensive campaign. Leading the charge for the rest of the militia to follow and to be able to orchestrate a sizable push directly into the heart of the Amarrian systems in The Bleak Lands. Biohazard.’s most recent offensive campaign is against the strategical system of Sahtogas. This system has been held by the amarr, uncontested since 2010-04-09, that is over three years.

No other system in the history of FW has been held this long by one side. This system is traditionally a fallback system for the Amarr. Often stationing powerful corporations there to keep it under Amarr control. Sahtogas will also pave the way for the Biohazard. and the Matar to take Kamela, and will ultimately break the availability of fallback systems for the Amarr.

Over the last 7 days a grand total of 10 systems have been taken from the amarr hands led by Biohazard. not to mention other systems flipped by joint militia fleets. These systems include Oyonata, the home of former TEST Orion’s Fist weighing in at over 100 members, it fell in two days. Biohazard. officials tell me that they have no intention of slowing down.

Aslon Seridith > At the rate we’ve been taking systems a push to Kamela is inevitable.

At the time of writing this. Biohazard. have a 50 man fleet occupying sahtogas and gearing up to take the system, concluding the primary objective of their August campaign.

Biohazard. cannot take the credit entirely for this push onto Sahtogas. Understanding the importance of time zone coverage they have been teaming up with well known Russian alliance Smile ‘n’ Wave to make sure no plex goes unturned.

White Drop, the military leader of S+W explained a few things to me:

White Drop > Sahtogas was an object of desire for the whole Minmatar militia. A few months ago we managed to rush through Siseide and Kamela, then we were only one step away from total minmatar victory, But due to lack of coordination and few other problems we had no success in it. At that time our alliance was almost alone trying to capture it, and it became obvious that we can’t take it alone. I contacted one of the BIO directors, as BIO is perspective and growing corp interested in the total victory of the militia.

In conclusion, the pilots I have spoken with are confident in the abilities Biohazard. and WINMATAR. The militia is confident in general warzone activity, and morale is high. On the other side of the fence the opposite is quite apparent.

A one day old member of the minmatar militia has been offering isk to pilots in exchange for not plexing Sahtogas. These desperate acts indeed show the state of the Amarr. Only a handful of things can stop the Minmatar now. And in my experience, momentum counts for a lot. -BIO-, WMTR, WAVE, and the Minmatar militia have the momentum needed to go from hardened warriors, to war gods. But as with everything in New Eden, only time will tell.

    “No other system in the history of FW has been held this long by one side.” Eszur held by the minmatar has never changed hands dispite 2 attempts to push it by the farming amarr menace

        Eszur has been held so long because of TRIAD. They have lived there far longer than Biohazard.

    What you dont understand is that most of the Amarr pilots aren’t in Amarr FW to plex, they joined this side to get pew pew as Minnies have the most numbers – hence most targets
    + when you take a system, that means that any plexing in that system is offensive (which is more LP’s than defensive) so why do Amarr pilots want to travel 12 jumps when they can do 1 jump and you have to come to them.
    Sorry but some of us don’t play the whole role play thing, we are here to shoot you and before you say we are killing more than you – who cares in my TZ I get as much pew as I can handle which is why we are here.
    P.S. we live in Iesa – please come and find us
    Love it.

    Its easy after fweddit went to null for bigger prey and isnt around for FW much. This is like winning a running competetion against 5th graders while usain bolt is competing at the olympics.

    Well done to -BIO- and Co. on a good system flip. It is a shame they didn’t attempt this when Sahtogas was actually being defended though. We had some really good fights back during the First and Second assault on Saht. It’s one of those horrible coincidences you see. The groups that had traditionally held Saht had moved on and left in the months leading up to this – just in time for your hiatus to finish and for you to decide you were going to take the system.
    Oh well, just bad timing I guess.
