I like the part where he says NCDot will be hanging on for their space. NCDot is putting up a far better fight than -A- has. The NC Bloc continues to grow against the Goons. With the addition of Nulli and other alliances, they are pushing 200 man fleets easily with cap support within jump range.Even with the recent drama with BL, the NCDot bloc is still far more powerful than -A- and they don't "run" away. Fighting 2 fronts, CFC and Solar, and they still prove over and over again that they are capable of disrupt advancement from both of these forces.-A- has hit a few too many drops if they think they are superior to NCDot. Damage Control II initiated.

Actually winter is not detrimental to morale or participation in eve. A summer war is much tougher I would think. Actually, interesting to see if in a few months the NCDot's AUTZ team will have weakened participation when the warm weather kicks in

Confirming that -A- USTZ is full of russians...

All the effort in the destruction of -A- image must have been for this moment, so that -A- could not come back.And they still think things will be as they used to be in the previous times they ran and lost space.

The Dotbros(deceased) was not at any point ~easily~ obtaining 200+ subcaps- that was a good night. Not a peak formup, mind you, but a good night. The Northern war was managed with far more success, but the base coalition was still too weak, as in -A-'s case. Both have leaderships incapable of putting pride second- Vince can't forgive an alliance for shooting his falcon, which was neutral to the aggressing party, who didn't even kill the falcon? I mean really, of all diplomatic incidents, that is about as mundane as they come. Its just as bad as -A- charging repair fees to its erstwhile allies.Now, both NCdot, and BL+Nulli will survive without one another, but neither can accomplish as much apart as when together.

Intellectually, I know the whole seasons thing is reversed down there... But still, I twitch a little inside each time I think of December and summer in the same idea. Though being Australia, maybe full summer heat is as much of an incentive to stay inside as winter here. Was certainly like that when I lived in Las Vegas. Needed sunscreen to go get the damn mail some days.

~A~: We don't owe anything to our allies. We just use them like a cheep whore for our own means.

Where is the volume control on these? I have my PC volume low, but it sounds like its screaming /o\ Anyone help me out?
Avatar
That's very true, but saying that somebody has better diplomatic skills than -A- really isn't saying anything at all ;)

At least NC. fights. -A- just play with themselves in the station :(

iTS NOT SHRINKING AT ALL, mil Ind, and half os cascade imminent has come up, alone with us becoming blue to Gypsy and others...I fly with these guys you dont. Our numbers in fleet ith BL and Elo AVG`d about 120, but we would kill that number or more every night and lose 15 tops. Now with all th new cascade guys [Which is a ton of UDEAD members etc] we are averaging 140-160 and in all 3 TZ`s.Numbers havent dropped at all BL are awesome I love them but they brought about 30-40 guys to most OPS, this has been more than fillid by not just 2 more corps [200 more actives to NCDOT] but Gypsy and all that entails.CFC fleets are rare to even see them when they arent structure shooting, we took back HW without BL.....We are in as good as shape as there is.I agree we would get more with more diplomacy but we are very close to Nulli an have found true [IMO longterm Bros like Evoke] and they seem to be doing our Diplo for us. Which is great.Nothing has fallen at all except maybe Peak GSF numbers TBH, but since Gypsy, Cascade, and -A- guys coming our way, we are doing great and as soon as stupid fight blows over we will blue BL again. I think they thought they would be just as news worthy without us, but since BL left we killed what? 15+ CAPS hundreds of Ships taken back HW station and killed a titan.

"Leadership encourages that -A- is still the best alliance on eve-kill" - Why do they keep insisting on thinking this is a valid metric, especially given the way aggression mechanics and smartbombs work in big fleet fights, and how easy it is to pad a killboard with a bunch of kills of defenseless alts?
Avatar
I totally agree with that. Nulli would have a lot more support through the drone regions simply because there's no bad history with them and it's possible they could make a deal with Solar to at least cease those hostilities. I'd also think that a lot of alliance leaders would be much happier to deal with nulli leadership rather than vince. A lot of us saw how ncdot treated their minor allies back in February and it didn't leave a good impression.A- is kind of a special case in how bad they are at maintaining allies.

When i first started using this site with it's "unbiased" articles and comments i was really pleased. But as i've been using it over time i've noticed that as most other coalitions have stopped the "new posting" on here it seems the majority of posters currently are Goons/TEST/PL and allies. Which leads to some extreme bias. I've seen truthful comments on here get downvoted to hell. I don't know if you don't want to hear the truth or if you're just drinking the coolaid...

the main problem here is not the Test Blob, but that its lead by PL FCs. I'm pretty sure there would be whole different war if it was only to Test.

Actually its growing.We lost 1200/600 Actives BL but really only 40-60 guys on our 120 man avg roams.We now have 140-180 roams, this is due to the fact that Nulli is our bros and is taking over our recruiting, we just got 200+ cascade imminent guys and all are actives also we are getting tons more smaller groups from Execs and even more ex-Bob guys are fighting.Sorry to ruin your party but since Elo/BL left we have had an avg gang increase, wiped the floor with tons of cap kills [not just the whinnig ones CCP overturned] we have taken back HW station which was huge and killed a Titan.....Doesnt get much better.Hopefully BL comes back I love the guys and it was stupid drama, but TBH with Gypsy entering our 2nd theatre of war and them loving to bomb dont be suprised to see tons of them in GSF fights also.Sorry man we arent shrinking, not by even 1 man. And to -A- you saying you are the best PVP corp in the game is a laugh, we are way more outnumbered here and we arent just not undocking and hurrying out to fight every now and then we are fighting the largest Coalition in the game and punching them square in the nose.You say you arent a big Alliance.....you have 3800 +4300 AAA Citz, we have 1600 NCDOT+NulliAlso you are helping out Solar who is helping GSF who are friends with Test and invaded you to begin with.....You arent very smart, you arent the best PVPers there are, half of you are botters and you talk about NCDOT like you know more about PVP....lol 2 fronts we are fighting, and not for shitty ass rental space but for the most sought after space in the game.....Tech.You should have told SOLAR to help figh GSF and taken pressure off your selves but you cant see very far ahead and if it wasnt for ROL you never would have gotten your space back ever, YOU DO OWE THEM SOMETHING.Mainly we in NCDOT have the same if not slightly more than we did though to the OP
Avatar
Lol AAA has more players in there Alliance than NCDOT+Nulli+DotBros, then double that with AAA Citz.You got to love him repeat they are PVP only, but they never PVP when they arent being invaded they are botting/Bearing.Busa and some Corps that were Hull Minors are great, others are Bears to the max who are terribad SC pilots.And you think PL is not going to come up with NCDOT/Gypsy to fight you there? They made i clear they wanna wipe you out, and with constant HiSec Bears wanting in and HBC taking all your allies, thats who will get Catch. New ROL in HBC will triple its size. Stain will get alot more than Stain, Init+Raiden+All the others will take catch and rent it, maybe no for money but rent it for formup loyalty.You have never faced this ever, NCDOT is in 10x better position as you. And we not just fight 3 to 1 like you talk about, we curb stomp at that level still, Please show me a fight where you Stomped PL with over 150 guys. Also Saying that you formup 200 while we only formup 120. That just means we are more dedicated we are half your numbers fighting a Coalition 1.5x as large and going back and forth SOV wise, what are you doing?The Hubris is funny.Our Enemies both of which you will become when you join SOLAR have 35k on 1 side and 20k+ your 9k on the other.....We are holding SOV on both sides. Our enemies formup 1k man fleets easily in which we fight with 250 men and might lose then but come back 120 strong and murder 300 of them to the last man.You talk about blobs all the time, you are joining SOLAR., the 2nd Biggest Blob in EVE, you can never ever again complain about numbers. Mukkavarian what are you doing with these guys? Come back home and fight the real Blob dont join SOLAR and add to its 20k army.

Membership numbers, add them up. Why cares how many 50 man alliances are blue.

Against All Authorities (-A-) held an alliance meeting this Tuesday October 16th, detailing their plans for the coming weeks. Summary as follows:

  • Brief summary of the war to this point. HBC has blobbed -A-, and -A- has lost both space, and supercapitals.
  • Leadership encourages that -A- is still the best alliance on eve-kill, however their Russian corps have been "doing the shittiest job," and are asked to step up their game.
  • In the previous wars when PL has invaded -A- space, they have failed, and will fail again.
  • The primary defence of Catch will be conducted in US timezone.
  • GE- used to be the -A- capital system; however all the assets currently  n GE- should be PVP assets only, and what remains should be evacuated.
  • Primary objective for the campaign will be getting "good fights." Sovereignty is secondary to the health of PVP in the alliance.
  • -A- will take the same approach as they have historically and wait until the HBC moves on from Catch before they remove whoever HBC installs.
  • -A- will be assisting SOLAR against Gypsy Band.

At this point there was an interruption for the supercapital fiasco. TS recording of the fight can be found at the end of the article. The meeting then resumed:

  • US timezone will be based out of LGK for now.
  • Discussion about how despite -A- losing all of their space, they will come back again when the time is appropriate.
  • Discussion about how -A- should not be responsible for whether or not their renters bot.
