My last alliances were all located in one 0.0 region or multiple regions that are located next to each other. These alliance all made their isk in their own regions that they lived in. this includes the pilots as well. This is fun but it also means that you are stuck in one place and you will have to defend it every time somebody attacks. I decided to join a corporation called Burning Napalm [SM3LL]. This corporation is member of an alliance that was more oriented on operating all over the EVE Universe. many know and fear this alliance for their Nomadic lifestyle, deploying to places where others fight each other to come in fight both. This alliance is called: Northern Coalition.


The nomadic lifestyle is challenging for members because you will have to be able to support yourself in many ways.What I really like in nomadic alliance such as NCDOT is that you don’t fight the same enemy over and over again. When you notice that it ain’t fun to fight anymore then you search for a new place to fight. This makes EVE a very dynamic game. another great benefit of such lifestyle is that you fly with relatively high SP characters. This often doesn’t mean anything because they can still be very bad at EVE online but some are exceptions. By just sitting in their fleet you will learn / notice a lot of things that I myself at least had never really expected. an example of this for me was fighting outnumbered. this will require the right fleet comb (in my case this was a Proteus fleet). we fought the CFC 4 to 1 and still had a good time. We were using the fleet comp for the first time and I was very impressed by how skill can win from numbers. another thing that I really like is that the pilots in a nomadic alliance are not focused on making money but they focus on PVP. this means that you don’t have to listen to the :carebears:. with this I mean people that use as an excuse of not attending deployments / pvp in general. Admittingly everybody has a stage where he/she has done this but it’s still very annoying for pvpers to listen to. ..

Support Yourself
For new people the biggest challenge will be supporting yourself without having access to constant space to make isk in. it made myself very aware of what my assets were and what they were worth to me. It pushes you to think out of the box to provide income. this is a very healthy thing to do for PVP focused players. I looked at things to do that take relatively low amounts of cash to invest in. Faction Warfare and putting one of my non pvp capable pilots in to a renter alliance. This secured me of income (and fun when looking at Faction Warfare). Both ways of income are very time/isk rewarding so for now its what I will stick with

Alliance Incomes.
This thinking out of the box kinda also determine how good an nomadic alliance will be run. Nomads are originally people who will move camp to a different place and then set up farm. In EVE this works partially the same where alliance that are deployed often go for high end moons just for good fights and a little income. Most income for alliances that are currently seen as nomadic (PL – BL – NCDOT – RnK ETC.) will come from Renters/highend moons and some are even famous for infiltrating WH’s, making cash of the loot they gain. Nomadic alliances most often don’t have to pay for any sov cost unless they have set up camp in a region for a while.

My Opinion

Many alliances have died because their space was getting removed from them and most often you will see the same pilots switch the the Alliance that takes over the same systems. I really think that more alliances and pilots should fly by the idea of having their home removed at any minute of the day.

Many alliances can say that they are able to deploy but really going somewhere else and setting up a new home a different story. if you and your alliance are able to perform such action then you are sure that you and your alliance is what this game needs at the moment. a good deployment or a good pick of new home can be key to your reputation ingame and with our history being full of amazing fights that were had from these type of events I can only look bright to the future waiting for the next one to happen.

    your funny, you spent the whole article talking about being a “nomadz” and you ruin it all by saying essentially ‘for the pvp player to truely be pvp’ish and nomadic” will require “you to create and maintain an alt who does nothing but mine, rat, or some other form of isk farming”. Pretty much ruined the whole thing to be honest. I fight, I mine, I moon goo, I rat, I trade (I suck at this worse then I suck at eve) and I have, shhhhh listen carefully, ONE ACCOUNT. Nor do I fight the same people over and over. One night its -a- the next cfc, the next nc dot, well you get the idea. About the only difference is between us is that you rely on an external source for your income (which requires time and effort there) and I don’t (which means I am always with my main toon, when I am on eve).

    I will say this had you left that part out it would have been a better story.

    Ok, let me get this straight…

    You´re (youself and your corp mates) “leet pvpeeerrr” who does not like to hear carebears whinners ´cause they´re “not right” on the way they decided to play eve. But, as everyone needs to make isk one way or another (unless noobships fight is something fun, and none told ´bout that to me) you use alts to…CAREBEAR !!!!

    And, apologies in advance if i´m wrong, i´m terrible on those corp/alliance politics things, but, doesn´t NCDOT a former nullsec alliance, who had it´s share (as any other nullsec alliance have) of carebears pilots not want to take part on fleets, ´till the point you weren´t able to hold your space anymore, and then, those of you still left in alliance, decided that nullsec is for noobs, and nomadic is the (new) true “leet pvpeeeerrr” ?

    Good hunt.

      The only thing that made those 2k fight, was they did not felt attached to, that sov and only used it to generate Fights.

        The guy simply refers to a more skilled group of players outnumbered still being able to stand up against the blob.

    At the end of the day NC. does all the crap people hate, too. I really do not hate the NC. guys, though I enjoy watching their ships become little white triangles (I suppose that’s true for anybody….).

    NO alliance is long immune to the mundane, the necessary and at times… the evil. PL and BL are somewhat different. 401k tried to be different and were for a while. Still – it’s friends when you must or want to, enemies everywhere whether you want them or not, blob what you can, don’t hose away assets uselessly and if you’re really lucky you’ll get and take the occasional GF.

    All that said, in my experience NC. does have a GOOD (hardly perfect) record for standing and fighting when odds were even relatively close to even, and we’ve won a few and lost a few. Still – expecting that many people to always follow a policy is unreasonable. I hate to admit it but I have gone home instead of fight just because it was 4:30 in the AM, I needed to be at work 30 minutes ago and oh yeah… what’s sleep. It does happen.

    NC. – see you guys out there.

    You aren’t truly nomadic. To be nomadic you have travel light and forage where you live.
    You use an alt to live at home(fw/renter). Your main(PvP) is just deployed and is funded buy an alt.
    Lose the alts or move them to where your main is at and then you at nomadic. And living off the land.
    Low sec pvpers are more nomadic than anyone in your whole alliance. Shit Even hi sec wardecers are. They don’t have a rental alliance or moon goo empire to srp their loses.

        Your PvP toon may not have a home but your income does, if you were true nomads you would live off the land you moved through not be supported by a renting empire. At best you can claim to be on an ongoing road trip.

    Just a pointless nitpick: nomads don’t move around to farm. They move either to better pasture for their livestock, or better pickings for hunting and gathering. Agriculture got humanity out of the nomadic lifestyle to begin with, so, being a farmer and a nomad are kinda opposite.

    Also fits your analogy better; since nomadic corps don’t do any farming, but rather hunt and gather.

    September 27, 2013 at 9:12 pm Reply
    1. Actually an Historian

      Agriculture is actually believed to have begun in a semi-nomadic fashion, where crops were ‘planted’ and left to grow, before the group returned to harvest. Humans later began to settle and store the seeds etc that allowed us to maintain sedentiary lifestyles.
      In saying that, that doesn’t make them strictly nomadic, but it does create a ‘middle ground’ between a settled and a nomadic lifestyle.
