Well actually it isn’t as bad as the title would lead you to believe, but basically that’s what part of this internal update from Get Off My Lawn says. Oh! they are also pretty much deploying into Delve:

——— Transmission Starts ————

Gnomes,
since I have some firm bits of news regarding the LAWN I figured I’d knock together a post to update you.
Standard Disclaimer : if I say something is speculative it could yet change completely.

In terms of solid news some of what I have is sad at the moment but not overly unexpected. We have a time of change coming up and I expect there will be more good and bad news in the near future.

LAWN PvP planning is in progress

As you will have read in this post we are planning ahead for LAWN-only PvP. Results from this should be fed back to the DoW department via your corp’s CoW though the initial results from the EU TZ FCs meeting that Gibguard held this week were promising. With small to medium scale PvP likely to be the future for a fair few months you’ll want to make yourself heard and pay attention to the results as they come out.

Seniors has decided to leave LAWN.

As with several of our corporations they are the in-Eve presence of an out-of-Eve gaming community. Some internal discussion over a month ago revealed that there was a large amount of their community that had an interest in Eve but not in the sov aspect of it. After over a month of internal debate they have decided to take their corporation and strike out in a direction that the majority of their community had an interest in and they will be heading to w-space. As you can see from how long it took it was a hard decision to come to but this move is expected to resulted in their corp multiplying in number of active players from their community.

Their departure will be somewhat extended as they currently pilot the LAWN alliance Titan and one key member happens to be on holiday in Florida. Rather than depart now and hand over the titan later they are remaining in LAWN until that is settled.

We are sad to see them go but they have indicated an interest in remaining blue to LAWN. They have loved their time in LAWN and should the w-space experiment not work out for them then they would like to be able to return.

If it does work out for them then there may be an opportunity for LAWN member to visit w-space with some friendly local guides.
Either way the HC hopes that this will reinvigorate the corporation which had been undergoing a quiet phase for some time.

Solarise Flares is also departing LAWN

Solarise Flares is, like Seniors, a corporation that is an in game presence of an out of game community. As a community they have had a building desire to see what they are capable of by themselves and now that the sov campaigns are over they are going to act upon that and see what they can manage!

Their future direction at our last discussion wasn’t certain yet but they too would like to have the option open to return to LAWN should they decide they preferred the pointy hats. Their departure will likely complete by Thursday.

LAWN likely to move to Delve

This is now the fifth iteration of spoils for LAWN with only one of the previous versions looking even vaguely similar. Don’t go shipping large amounts of stuff yet as our precise holdings haven’t been defined but do cast another eye over your stuff so that you don’t end up shipping a pile of things you don’t actually want.

For the moment though if you are in this area of Delve then making tactical BMs around gates etc. may turn out to be time well spent.

Once details are hammered out, including for example systems to form a JB link to the low-sec exit and maybe stations elsewhere for speedy deployments, then I will write a larger post explaining why I’ve chosen this result. This of course assumes it remains the best option for LAWN and who knows, that may change over the next few days to a week. With the Delve campaign winding down though I expect announcements to be possible soon ™.

The short version however is that while a bit more exposed the space is a bit of an improvement in terms of income, it will be a decent improvement in terms of moons and PvP will be a lot more accessible than it currently is in Branch. This move will not suit everybody but then staying in Branch also wasn’t going to suit everybody. In terms of what this means for LAWN as an alliance it allows us to grow our PvP capabilities while working together rather than via a multitude of small deployments.

I’m looking forward to being able to post about our new home as I’m excited by what I can see of it so far!

          Yo don’t worry NC. can rely on PL to hold steadfast when the purge begins. Look forward to see N3 fight in their drone assist doctrine fleet ships versus competent foes. Laughing at Lawn? They would put up better numbers and take the fights longer than N3 with or without titans.

            ” they currently pilot the LAWN alliance Titan” “Rather than depart now and hand over the titan” No, it sounds like the titan is an alliance-funded asset and will be handed over to another corp with the proper pilot/roles.

    “Oh! they are also pretty much deploying into Delve”

    That’s news? You couldn’t piece that together yourself? Haven’t you looked at eve-kill, dotlan, or logged into EVE lately? Even the most mentally deficient inbred mouth breathers that makes up TEST and NC. could have told you that a while ago. So that you’re not completely behind, we also deployed to Fountain some time ago, and we’re pushing into [fake] Querious as well Delve.

    Confirming LAWN has only one titan and it has no fuel, we only fly bombers, and our leadership is awful. We hope to one day be as successful as TEST and as formidable as NC. and all others who have the CFC right where they want us.

    Evidence that the CFC is coming apart at the seams. The stench of GOONS RMT racket is becoming too thick to ignore, the proof is everywhere if you OPEN YOUR EYES and so CFC pet corps are leaving in droves. The Mittani can’t be bothered to defend his so-called allies, while his greed and double-dealing alienates them further. Instead the blind alliance leaders clamor at the dusty trickle of the dried up Tech money that GOONS casually scatter on the ground. WHEN WILL YOU WAKE UP? This alliance can’t afford titans, can’t afford to keep their space, while GOONS squander their money on FAILED ice interdictions and a TRANSPARENT RENTER SCAM. LAWN buys period basis with the scraps that are left over, and then GOONS take it away – You can’t have that! This isn’t in the GOON plans, so fall in line and hand it over, and get into your new designated ghetto. And if you don’t click enough PAP links, they’ll enforce another SMA-style culling. The new space-Gestapo GOONS is watching you, CFC members.
    So WAKE UP. More evidence of the obvious rotten core of BOB 2.0, more kindling in the fires of revolution, and the inevitable collapse of the CFC. VFK by December!
