First things first, for those who do not know; Curse is the place to be right now. G-0 and Doril, these are the big places where a lot of major of the alliances are headed. Whatever remains of TEST and its allies have moved there and on top of that you have both N3 elements and CFC gangs fighting it out however there remains doubt that any major political reaction will come of this. The three most significant things that could come from this are the complete destruction of TEST Alliance, TEST aligning itself completely with N3, OR…TEST even realigning itself back into the CFC fold. I strongly doubt that this would be the case but no way to be sure. A fourth option is that TEST would become a really hard-ass small gang. During the fall of Fountain, I strongly encouraged TEST leadership to head to NPC 0.0 and focus exactly on this. As an entity with a their roots in a strong forum community such as Reddit, in the same way Goons also step from their forum community, TEST definitely have a strong enough community to hold them together unlike other o.o alliances.

Their major need right now is more capable FCs; even if they align with a new coalition or a new alliance, they cannot be reliant on non TEST leadership to support them in combat. They need their own commanders and their own doctrines. Form doctrines all the way from a frig fleet, up to battleships. FORGET ABOUT CAPITALS. Pretend you don’t have them because for now all they are are expensive losses, propaganda for your enemies, and a demoralizing factor for your own troops.

Props to Boodabooda for managing TEST’s exodus from the west into Curse. When things are going bad, everyone is going to blame the leadership. It was also smart to transfer the reigns over to SkierX rather than just dump the leadership position and see who grabs it. Booda may not see TEST to the promised land (as leader anyway) but he certainly achieved one of the most important jobs of the journey, maintaining a decent amount of people in TEST and placing them in a position where they can flesh themselves out as an alliance. The CFC did the best thing they could with TEST. Up until Fountain, TEST couldn’t even walk on their own. Even now they are only just learning to crawl on their own; with decent leadership we may see TEST rise up as perhaps the only force able to even come close to challenging CFC dominance in 0.0.

Their secondary needs is a competent and good diplomacy, and let’s face it, TEST doesn’t have many allies around them. Right next to Curse you have Nulli and Against ALL Authorities, both of whom have more than enough reason to dislike TEST. Now that he tables have shifted, TEST has no sov, AAA and Nulli both do and it will take some skillful diplomacy to make anything happen. It may be smart to take a page out of Goon history. When Goons were kicked to the curb they aligned themselves with Red Alliance and formed “Red Swarm.” In the same manner, TEST could find a hated but hard to kill Russian group to align itself with until they find their footing. When you combine TEST’s numbers and ties to Reddit with the vindictive Russian nationalistic animosity and their ghostly memory of soviet doctrine, you could go quite far.

Another option is also to pull in the FW Redditors that aligned with the CFC during the Fountain war for some reason. Being in FW their leadership was obviously inexperienced when dealing with 0.0 politics. All the Goons had to do is whisper sweet nothings into their ears about what they could do in 0.0 if aligning with the CFC and they folded like a rusty lawn chair in a hurricane storm. Unfortunately for them, it was simply a propaganda piece. The Goons used them to strike at very heart of TEST, Reddit.

What is important however is that TEST grows culturally. Goons were at the “we are shit and we don’t care, we’ll throw waves of ships at you and die no problem” stage too at one point; But eventually they grew into more. They still allow that sort of ass-hattery, but when the time comes and it really matters, they are extremely organized, they have competent FCs and goal oriented campaigns. TEST can no longer just be shit and be ok with it because eventually people get tired of that. TEST needs to mature and grow as a culture.

But going back to AAA…damn well done. My hats really are off, all of them. They lost all their sov, all their allies, everything. They retreated to NPC regions Curse and Stain, lost a significant amount of their members, yet the core remained, it remade allies, rebuilt, and retook much of their old holdings in Catch, and their war with CVA/Provi Bloc is advancing. But they cannot afford to be arrogant yet. They are still in a very unstable position. A strong wind from any of the larger coalition could simply resend everyone back to Stain even more demoralized than from the previous war. They need to structure their coalition with defined roles and goals. They need to define themselves strongly as a “east European bloc” without alienating westerners. Nationalism is a very strong holding element for Eve alliances, but if too extreme, can relegate you simply to being annoying in some NPC region like Stain.

Solar is a very good possible ally. Unfortunately there may be too much drama and history. Between issues that happened with Gypsy band, Russian back stabbing and rivalries; so on and so forth. The south may remain a simple patch work of semi nationalist alliances rather than reach its potential to be a capable and strong 0.0 coalition. Like the Double Headed Eagle on the Russian Flag, this new coalition would do best to look both West and East. Solar can deal with the CFC and may even be able to acquire both Querious and Period Basis, while AAA could use diplomacy to ward off any possible threat from N3. All this remains to be seen depending on what they decide to do. You also have the issue of NCdot’s renting alliance, Northern Associates, holding large portions of southern territory which could be used by the Neo Stain Coalition for renting out. The pessimist in me however says that Solar and AAA will distrust each other and DD + Stain allies will simply be happy with what they have now, and the southern region will simply be a buffer region for the CFC and N3 coalitions.

On the CFC side, what can be said? They own half of the map more or less. The time to conquer is really over. How much more can an Empire hold before it crumbles under its own weight. I have to commend their choice of handing over a portion of Fountain to FA. Their presence there works in two ways. For one, they add insult to injury toward TEST and act as a sort of an added bait. If TEST ever does come back, FA as the hated party within the CFC will be a potent propaganda tool. On the flip side, FA will fight extremely well to hold this new territory just to piss off TEST more so than ever.

On the other hand I have to wonder why FA’s old territory was taken from them. It’s a bit of a rhetorical question really. The answer is the Goons will only keep their “equal” partners strong sweet enough to secure loyalty. TEST were already one scary challenge to their hegemony… at least until TEST saw that their supposed allies were not going to stay and actually put up a determined fight, Anyway we hear rumblings about a possible CFC strike on N3 territory.

The CFC could strike could come from the north and depending on how the wind blows for PL, that fight could be happening in their rental systems or NCdots. If the fights don’t go spectacularly well for the CFC however, they could see their own rental zone in Vale of the Silent, become the battlefield for said war. The other option is to advance through the south, first by co opting Solar as allies; potentially through offering them Period Basis, and then in turn working with the Neo StainWagon/AAA by offering them NCdot’s rental systems there. The idea isn’t to take more territory for the CFC, but rather to ensure your potential threats, never get enough strength to challenge your hegemony.

Lastly, N3’s movements have been worth following as well. They’ve been hitting Razor’s assets while also dropping some T3 fleets on AAA/DD in Catch. Politically it may be wiser to ally up with the southern Russians before the CFC tries to make use of them. Everyone has their price. There was an announcement of the formation of “Northern ArmyDOT”, a concept which I wrote being quite skeptical about. Some people were upset at that and claimed I didn’t understand that it was a feeder alliance. I get the concept, it’s not a difficult one. My point is that the idea is a bad one. The examples given to me were the likes of The InitiativeDot and their feeder alliance, Init Mercs. How has that been working for them? Did you guys notice anything different in Catch in the last month or so? The other examples was PL and their waffles. Well PL is PL. Their standards of needing to have a capital ship to get in is up to them and their effectiveness does not equate to NCdots. The most useful thing about a feeder alliance is that it provides a large pool of players which you can direct at your enemy, and if they end up losing you can say “well that’s not true NCdot…that’s just our feeder corp. Didn’t want that fleet anyway.” It has more use as a scapegoat than anything else. Instead of trying to form a sister/feeder corp and maintain all that is needed to do that, one could simply allow said corps to join up with NCdot and if they prove competent keep them. But I guess the idea is to keep your KB efficiency high because that’s super important or something. When you lose your sov you can still point to the KB. I’m not being cute here, it really is a popular excuse.

Now we take all of that, and prepare for the coming winter. (cue meme pics)

    An interesting read from someone who is part of AAA. I remember the sheer amount of propaganda that was being thrown at us by TEST. I’ll admit that Makalu made a pretty big and easy target most of the time for that. Still, it’s good to have character or to be a character and he certainly was.

    It’s nice the see that our resurgence isn’t going unnoticed.

    What isn’t mentioned here is that while there is a core that remained behind in AAA, there are plenty of alliance mates that are now part of groups like Pandemic Legion and DD…I think maybe even FA. I don’t know if they feel any past loyalty to AAA after their departure but I have to imagine I would.

    Still PL has had no reservations about shooting AAA and Makalu took it upon himself to do some small amount of smack talking to our FC during one of our skirmishes.

    I guess we’ll see how the ever-shifting landscape of EVE unfolds over the course of this next expansion.

    Stainwagon’s role in the future will be same as the goals of those alliances the made it happen. Drag out the inevitable loss of all sov with as many good fights as possible, we Stainwagonese are more than prepared to be pushed all the way back into 4GQ (chances are this new -A- will failscade again as all the corps that have joined them have pretty much been the types to abandon ship at first sign of getting wet), after all, you can’t call it Catchwagon, doesn’t have the same ring to it

      I’d wager differently. AAA’s current corps, while not solid in terms of participation or sheer experience yet, are led by people who have lived through many storms in eve. Vigilanta stayed with test even as they failcascaded before leaving due to drama. Some corps are straight out of NPC 0.0 so had no sov or such to live in to begin with. And even more are used to waging war out of Stain as during the Stainwagon invasion of TDS all coalition members had to pay for their own ships and had no assured future.

        Yes, killing Provi would be glorious, a huge feast for all involved. but a month later, we’ll be hungry again, and there wont be any food around this time.

        So Provi-folk stay in Providence, and we come to visit, cos they have the most delicious cotton candy in the whole of South. Also i think its beneficial for all involved. They learn to fight, we have fun. Both groups are stronger as the result.

    Wouldn’t be surprised to see some limited workings going on between Solar/Test/Black Legion. All three entities are isolated and currently working semi on their own against coalitions such as N3 which effectively contains PL. If Test purge themselves down to a working core of active PvP players they could be a rather effective force if they can attract some FC talent. Would be interesting to see these three work together in a limited capacity since BL/Solar are already blue.

  9. That’s an impressive wall of text (I used the “summarize service” to get the TL/DR version) for someone who hasn’t killed or lost anything since June. Don’t play the game, but can certainly spew words on a page about it. I’d also be interested to know where you get your information from, and then how you can possibly form the idea that “fail, join CFC, or join N3” are the only three possibilities.

If your posts weren’t always trying to demonstrate your intellectual “superiority” that might sting a little more. Still I think this should be a discussion of EVE and not trying to make it a personal attack as you have with this article.

            October 2, 2013 at 3:38 pm
          3. Finally something almost worthy of a counter-argument, even if it remains simplistic. How are comments that the article is of dubious intellectual value, the author of dubious relevance, the idea that someone who writes “news” on a “news site” should be able to get ideas across concisely, and hinting that he might not have all the information in relation to TEST’s possible outcomes here… how are these things not related to EVE or the original article in appropriate ways?

            I believe my original comments remain valid, even if you don’t agree with them, don’t choose to actually address them, and instead choose to dismiss these points based on the fact that I actually know how to use English. A personal attack was the “natural” outcome of having read far too much text of low information density involving Seraph his reply being, well, less than intelligent. To re-use that “superior word”—it’s quite a good one, you may wish to look it up—his response *was* archetypical of his inability to argue based on the actual content of an argument, but rather on the surrounding incidentals such as, in this case, perceived gender.

            Ah, and I’ve been pinged that Seraph actually deigned to respond to the points I made. Hallelujah and praise Hojo.

          4. How I got the idea of “fail, join CFC, or join N3.” Well actually if you had some reading comprehension you would know that these are NOT the only options. I outlined a bit about the Russian bloc in the south too.

          5. I realize Northern Army is “just your feeder corp.” See how can I address your points if most of them seem to be written without basic English comprehension backing them up?

        This is bullshit and one of the reasons TEST didn’t want to go to war with GSF when Montolio tried to rally the hordes was that TEST was always BFFs with Goonies. It may be also one of the reasons they lost, they didn’t put enough will into it, since many of them didn’t want to fight their bros. Also why many ex-TEST corps are now in CFC.

    I’d like the idea of TEST going back to CFC. Admit that they are fallen. Humble themselves from the true king of EVE of Thrones. If that happened, the goonions should embrace their long lost brothers. Laughed it all off. This is EVE after all. There are only two options, play or unsub.2

    That’s an impressive wall of text (I used the “summarize service” to get the TL/DR version) for someone who hasn’t killed or lost anything since June. Don’t play the game, but can certainly spew words on a page about it. I’d also be interested to know where you get your information from, and then how you can possibly form the idea that “fail, join CFC, or join N3” are the only three possibilities. I’ll just leave you with that.

    — Draleth

    P.s. the summarized version (copied verbatim from the summarize service, consider this the TL;DR version of the entire above post) was:

    Their major need right now is more capable FCs; even if they align with a new coalition or a new alliance, they cannot be reliant on non TEST leadership to support them in combat.

    …Booda may not see TEST to the promised land (as leader anyway) but he certainly achieved one of the most important jobs of the journey, maintaining a decent amount of people in TEST and placing them in a position where they can flesh themselves out as an alliance.

    …The pessimist in me however says that Solar and AAA will distrust each other and DD + Stain allies will simply be happy with what they have now, and the southern region will simply be a buffer region for the CFC and N3 coalitions.

    …TEST were already one scary challenge to their hegemony… at least until TEST saw that their supposed allies were not going to stay and actually put up a determined fight.

    …The most useful thing about a feeder alliance is that it provides a large pool of players which you can direct at your enemy, and if they end up losing you can say “well that’s not true NCdot…that’s just our feeder corp.1

    Wouldn’t be surprised to see some limited workings going on between Solar/Test/Black Legion. All three entities are isolated and currently working semi on their own against coalitions such as N3 which effectively contains PL. If Test purge themselves down to a working core of active PvP players they could be a rather effective force if they can attract some FC talent. Would be interesting to see these three work together in a limited capacity since BL/Solar are already blue.

    Yes, killing Provi would be glorious, a huge feast for all involved. but a month later, we’ll be hungry again, and there wont be any food around this time.

    So Provi-folk stay in Providence, and we come to visit, cos they have the most delicious cotton candy in the whole of South. Also i think its beneficial for all involved. They learn to fight, we have fun. Both groups are stronger as the result.

    Stainwagon’s role in the future will be same as the goals of those alliances the made it happen. Drag out the inevitable loss of all sov with as many good fights as possible, we Stainwagonese are more than prepared to be pushed all the way back into 4GQ (chances are this new -A- will failscade again as all the corps that have joined them have pretty much been the types to abandon ship at first sign of getting wet), after all, you can’t call it Catchwagon, doesn’t have the same ring to it2

    I’d wager differently. AAA’s current corps, while not solid in terms of participation or sheer experience yet, are led by people who have lived through many storms in eve. Vigilanta stayed with test even as they failcascaded before leaving due to drama. Some corps are straight out of NPC 0.0 so had no sov or such to live in to begin with. And even more are used to waging war out of Stain as during the Stainwagon invasion of TDS all coalition members had to pay for their own ships and had no assured future.2

    An interesting read from someone who is part of AAA. I remember the sheer amount of propaganda that was being thrown at us by TEST. I’ll admit that Makalu made a pretty big and easy target most of the time for that. Still, it’s good to have character or to be a character and he certainly was.

    It’s nice the see that our resurgence isn’t going unnoticed.

    What isn’t mentioned here is that while there is a core that remained behind in AAA, there are plenty of alliance mates that are now part of groups like Pandemic Legion and DD…I think maybe even FA. I don’t know if they feel any past loyalty to AAA after their departure but I have to imagine I would.

    Still PL has had no reservations about shooting AAA and Makalu took it upon himself to do some small amount of smack talking to our FC during one of our skirmishes.

    I guess we’ll see how the ever-shifting landscape of EVE unfolds over the course of this next expansion.6

    FA dropped Fade/Pure Blind simply because we didn’t need that much space, and it would have been a waste of sov bills to continue holding it. It can now go to another CFC alliance that has grown over the summer and wants some half decent space where they can also get into some scraps with the nearby npc null guys.

        It does actually. And if it doesn’t go to a smaller CFC entity and is instead to get rented out then it also makes sense that it would be a goons enterprise since a more powerful landlord gives the renters more stability, which makes the property more attractive and therefore more valuable. Seems kind of obvious.

    Quiet Before the Storm or Boredom is Killing Eve?

    After a few weeks of Test, Razor, -A-, BL, PL, N3, provibloc, and DD all being in very close proximity where Immensea, Curse, and Catch meet we are seeing a steady decline in fights.

    Most n3 fleets end without any fighting. Night and Day we fly from i-n to doril, G-0, HED-GP, -a-‘s staging system(i’m usually half asleep by then), and then home. It’s starting to feel like miserable drudgery. The only alliances that form to fight in order of how often I see them are(based on my experience) BL, Darkness of Despair, -A-, and then razor maybe. Razor shows up once in awhile. Goons are supposed to be n G-0, and I heard we killed a few domis but that’s all i’ve heard. Test is effectively dead. If you get kicks out of warping to the same “camped” station to get a thorax kill every now and again sweet, but god damn this game is starting to bore me. I also notice fleet numbers decreasing in all TZ’s in spite of the fact that my alliance has gained hundreds of members from Test.

    This should be the most conflict riddled time in EVE considering almost every coalition, and alliance of note currently has a staging system within Titan Bridge range of each other.

        Your articles would be far more interesting, and much shorter, if you would simply state that you would be putting yourself in harms way again so that the Goons could bend you over the table and violate you in front of your friends, as is customary.
        You actually try to resurrect the Test remnant with words in this article. Don’t you realize that in space unsubbed accounts can’t hear you?

In every other case I simply discuss possibilities. Why does that bother you so much?

          Why would I want my articles shorter? Short articles are boring. If my articles are too long, don’t read them.

          Since when have “Goons customarily bent” me over? I’ve never been in conflict with the CFC aside from some skirmishes on EC-P8R.

          In space unsubbed accounts can’t hear me? So people that are unsubbed can’t hear me? Ok. Good to know I guess. I think you probably meant to say something else. Don’t hurt yourself.

I personally find it hard to believe you would have written all of these articles, trying to goad all of the null alliances in EvE to once again join forces and loose all their shit to the Goons, if there was no reason.
            Maybe if you opened a dialog with the Goons, you’d find that that last forcible ass-to-mouth they subjected you to, was just a simple misunderstanding.

          2. Seraph IX Basarab

            I’ve actually said this several times. I don’t have any animosity against the Goons. I simply wanted a 2nd, or even 3rd entity that can challenge them for the sake of having better conflicts. When you watch a boxing match you want to see equally capable fighters going at it don’t you? Let’s put away the childish trolling and just consider that that’s as far as my interest goes. I’ve given the Goons and CFC credit where credit is due. They have the most organized leadership structure, they’ve played an awesome meta game, they’ve done wonders with their doctrines (about time someone used Damp celestis) and so on and so forth. But it’s damn boring rooting for the Persian Empire over the divided squabbling Greek city states. I like the underdog, the resistance group, that’s my whole deal.

            If i’m so anti Goon and pro whoever else, why would I write the article concerning Northern Army? Why would I berate Vince Draken’s way of handling the Falcon incident? Or point out Black Legion’s inconsistent diplomatic policies? (Consistently inconsistent truth be told.)

            October 4, 2013 at 4:13 pm
          3. ummn?

            I think the analogy equating the Goons to the Persians and everybody else to the Greeks is a pretty good indicator of your mindset here.
            If you are American, or just Western European, you have been taught that the Greeks were honorable, freedom loving, nude wrestling types who were just minding their own business when the tyrannical Persians brought hundreds of thousands of tormented slaves to their door demanding tribute.
            Likewise you’ve been taught that the Persians were the worst of assholes.
            Slapping people on their bare backs when they get out of the pool, eating someone else’s lunch from the refrigerator at work, hitting you in the balls when you are trying to shoot hoops, and hiding the remote. Really sick shit.
            Now, I’m not saying that you don’t just love the Goons. But your writing definitely seems to indicate that you don’t.

            I’m actually Romanian (hence the name Basarab) and the Greeks were a bunch of idealistic boy loving corrupt and arrogant pricks too in love with their own voice to see beyond their noses. They were the ones that killed Socrates. No one else did that. In each nation you see the embodiment of the very best and the very worst human nature has to offer. In that sense, Persian and Greek are the same.

            But what I was referring to was the political and military power. The Goons like the Persians (depending on the time) were much more powerful than anyone else. I personally have a hard time aligning myself with any of the major 0.0 entities because they all seem to have some heavy faults I wouldn’t care much to be a part of. I understand that every alliance has people and people are people. That’s as far as my assumptions go.

            I appreciate the sentiment. It’s a bit hard to find people that can exchange thoughts. Most people are just “LOL i trolled u when u said words hur hur” and that’s as far as it goes.

          7. Plato's closet

            The “historical” Socrates is an invention of Plato and Xenophon.
            So don’t feel bad about him getting a hemlock cocktail.
            He was most likely just another loud mouthed jackass who definitely employed veiled “civility” to denigrate his political enemies until they decided to jack his ass.
            We’ve got millions of them walking around today. They just don’t have cheerleaders that are as effective as Plato or enemies effective as the Athenian public.
            It is ironic that Socrates was hated because he claimed that he knew nothing and therefore the leaders of Athens, whom he questioned publicly, were really clueless, since they knew even less.
            Compare this to the Goons who claim that they are really terrible at this game and therefore everybody else, whom they’ve beaten repeatedly, must be REALLY bad because they are worse.

            He most likely is an invention but I want to believe it him so I choose to. But you’ve made very good points.

            OMG dude.
            Enough with the Greek/Persian analogy.
            There many Greek players in CFC and i am one of those.
            Also the guys above do have a point with your antigoon writing.
            And it makes more sence for small alliances to fight the N3 or any other smaller coalition than fight the big bad CFC as you are making it here.

            What about my writing is anti goon? All I’ve said is that I’d like to see a rival coalition to them so we can get good fights. This makes me anti goon?

    Dear Seraph
    I do not share your opinion concerning Solar and AAA
    I dont think AAA would ever consider goin side to side with Solar, since the days of betrayal. Neither do i think AAA could handle the N3. NC. deals atm single handedly with DD and we have a lot of FUN. Awesome duders always up 4 a fight.

    NO AAA should ally with N3. and launch an Invasion of Querious and Period Basis, whilst N3 launch a Offensive in the north against CFC.
    so eytherway CFC would prolly lose a region resulting in more space for -A- and the DD bros resulting in a better basis to respond to the threat through the CFC donut

      We’ve seen stranger bedfellows no? And perhaps i’m too idealistic concerning people’s patriotism but wouldn’t you rather side with fellow countrymen over an external threat and face destruction?

      If AAA and allies were to invade in the south against the CFC, Solar alone may have a fairly good chance at holding them back, let alone Solar and BL. In the north N3 would be facing the full brunt of the CFC where I am not sure they could handle that either. All in all they would actually have to trust each other, work with their allies and not piss and moan over the first blue falcon death.

      It makes very little sense for the Stainwagon to invade west. The “great sea” as we call it between Paragon and PB and Catch and Querious makes holding the area tricky.

      Invading east makes far more sense. Though Seraph should note that SOLAR would be grossly outnumbered by the Stainwagon around RU prime. (DD gets full fleets, AAA gets around 150-200)

      Invading N3 nets the Stainwagon more regions to split amongst itself. AAA would likely take immensea, tenerifis, and deteroid with DD exploiting the riches of Omist.

        One problem that AAA and DD should realize though is that by weakening N3, they strengthen CFC. If that’s not a concern for them by all means, head east. But if it is it may be better to take regions in the west with N3 help, or at the very least ensure the area to the west is unstable.

          I should think that taking our historic space is better than being a pawn for people we despise more than goons.

            Where this does animosity between you and N3 come from?

            Nulli and NCDots invasion of AAA while the Stainwagon was attempting to cope with a fullscale HBC invasion of the south.

            AFTER, Nulli had been supported to the fullest by our entire coalition. Their attacking us was a slap in the face after embroiling our coalition in a war began by them.

            That and I suspect that if N3 die AAA hopes to regain a few old corps. 😉

            I cannot imagine DD would object to their return either.

            What would you say about the claim by Nulli that AAA only gave a lack luster support using kite Tengus? I mean I’m not agreeing or disagreeing with anything, it’s really just a different perspective, but how do you feel about that?

            October 6, 2013 at 10:18 pm
          5. C0VEN

            Lackluster? AAA had a full alliance deployment and was fielding 200 man fleets in support of Nulli.

            Kiting tengus don’t die easily no. And were easy to extract. That said they dealt insane alpha and DPS and were thus favored ships of the line the ENTIRE WAR. Not just in Delve.

            Nulli got really upset because AAA and the rest of the Stainwagon weren’t willing to deploy supercap fleets against the CFC, PL, and the beginnings of the HBC.

            October 6, 2013 at 11:47 pm
          6. C0VEN

            Not to mention the fact the entire Stainwagon deployed in assistance. Including AAA’s SoCo forces as well.

    Simple solution:
    -CFC & BL/SOLAR takes drone regions + Cache.
    -Stainwagon takes south-east regions.

    N3/PL has no friends because everybody knows that they’re dirty little backstabbers. CFC & Stainwagon would also agree that N3/PL is making a bit too much isk from their rental operations.

    It’s not a matter of if, but when…

      Right now, things are not going well for N3/PL.
      -PL seems to be suffering from inactivity slump
      -NC. is getting badly spanked back & forth in Curse by BL, Goons, & Razor. They seem desperate to improve their killboard efficiency, so they’re going after easy targets in Providence, Low sec, & WHs.
      -N3 as a coalition is still feeling the sting from the Fountain campaign.

    In AAA are not longer russians only. The most russians in Darkside. AAA hast maybe 20-10% russian. The rest are Australians, Germans, UK or Norwegian. So AAA is not that east alliance what do you think maybe. Pls update that in your head. 😉
