The yearly migration down to Delve has begun. It is a little later this year than normal. The whole thing in Fountain slowed things down. But it is a little earlier than some predicted. No waiting for the jump bridge network to get set up.

Almost exactly 13 months ago we were headed back from Delve, having helped TEST take it and Querious. Now we are inbound again to take the region from TEST.

TEST has actually abandoned the region, so it is sitting there waiting for somebody to knock it over. Fweddit has been in and has knocked off a couple of systems on the border with Fountain, while the Pasta Syndicate has a constellation in the middle of things.

I am not sure how long that will last. There are only six pilots currently in their alliance and the CFC plan for Delve is to conquer it all for the Greater Western Co-Prosperity Sphere, of which I wrote a little while back. Wide open spaces for the CFC rental empire.

Meanwhile, I am starting to feel like an old hand. The convoy made it out to our traditional staging system at 1DH-SX.

And upon docking I found all the items I left behind when we returned home last time around. Bits and pieces for a shield tanked, missile firing fleet doctrine. Drake fleet was big last year. And the Rifter that I used to fly on the gate camp in F2OY-X.

This time around the outlook is not as exciting. No titanic battles are in the immediate future. Just a clean up of TEST’s former space holdings in Delve.

We shall see how that progresses.

    To me it looks like CFC is really over extending them self. Delve is a very very long way from CFC home space and it would be very very easy to attack once CFC moves into delve.. just saying. The only reason CFC has been able to protect them self in the past are their fortress they built in the north. Being this spread out will make CFC weak and will make it much more easy to pick off the lesser alliances in CFC like FA, SMA & LAWN etc. To me it looks like CFC is being greedy and taking a huge risk. Lets see how it plays out.

            If people went at goons from the North and the South they would be in trouble (for example, when 401K and BL went after Tribute with TEST in the south, but due to BL’s mercenary nature Goons were able to pay them a fortune to back off)

      hence the Jb network systems. you can cross empires in just a few minutes. Besides delve would be a very good place for renting space.

        JB network systems do not magically bridge you from one side of Eve to the other. One battleship would take more than 45 minutes to cross from Delve to Vale of the Silent. A fleet of battleships would take much longer in Tidi.

          sure moving a fleet from vfk to delve would take some time. but if all you idiots think that goons and the rest of the cfc moved all their stuff back to dek you really should stop playing eve.

          there is a place called fountain and cfc just took it over. oh yeah most of us, well all of us, just left our stuff there. so we can see you down in delve whenever you feel like getting stomped again.

        It’s a valid point about the JB network. But when you are in 10% tidi jb’s don’t mean shit. When you are moving tow full mega fleets there is tidi. So the network is gimped.

      Delvegrind 2013: Standing Orders

      This is a brief but necessary campaign; Delve is vacant but needs to be ground. For the past week, GSF SBUs have been online in every major station system in the region, and Vee, Mynas and the crew are now going to dick the region before it starts to molder. Done properly, this will be done with in 1-2 weeks. N3 has forces in 49- in Querious to make life a little more interesting but we don’t expect any ‘native’ opposition.

      Delve will mostly be rented out for the entire CFC to profit from via [PBLRD] so everyone is expected to attend the grind if they hope to enjoy the proceeds.

      Baltecfleet, Lokifleet, Harpyfleet and Siegefleet ships to 1DH.

      Look for posted ops and broadcasts; catch a convoy from 4-EP if you haven’t already.

        Let the trillions of RMT ISK flow in. Not only does goons want all the prime moons, plus rental income, they also know that the winter iteration brings them yet another Xmas gift: null sec T2 manufacturing buffs.

        There is a reason that CCP does not distribute the names of chars caught RMT’ing, and it is not some so-called privacy concerns they hide behind.

Yeah, honestly I think Goonswarm would start to crumble if they continue their never ending growth and keep giving away space to their coalition and pets… Sooner or later they would either split up into two coalitions that would face eachother or create an all-consuming entity that would big alliances prevent from forming since all the corps will want to be part of that Coalition that controlls 90% of player owned space.

        I could honestly see how CCP would entirely change sovereign mechanics in order to make “owning ALL the space” unattractive in order to prevent goons from keeping newbies away.
