To say that Minmatar Aussie prime time is weak is more than a little bit of an understatement. We really need to hire some shady Australian mercenaries with our ill-gotten gains to hold the line Sahtogas, because the three Aussies in the militia right now can't do it alone. I think the Minmatar have been defeated by victory, so to speak. If you don't like orbiting buttons, big cruiser/bc brawls in Kamela, or chasing after loki-boosted Amarr gate/station campers in Auga, your prospects are somewhat limited, which has caused several smaller groups to leave and hurts participation in general militia fleets. "Welcome to the militia. Go orbit buttons in Sahtogas for hours so BWG can undo it all while you sleep."

Yes, because if by chance it takes 4 weeks instead of 3, they might not give us one.

If anything this is a huge embarrassment to the ' elite pvp ' of the amarr, as represented by the yolo. It shows what a little dedication and willingness can achieve in stead of whining on the forums. As a minmatar I am very happy Agony joined. Looking forward to them facing of with our rag tag rustbucket fleets more often. Hope you guys liked our SFI fleet, rare occasion that we had something that resembled an actual doctrine.(Rp fag alert) Ps I know mostplexing salts were crying to us not to take all systems, but rest assured some of us, even if we are a minority, do want. To take those systems and make the slavers pay.

i have no knowledge at all about FW. when they say 'offensively plexing', are they talking about a war waged over who is 'PVE plexing', like in the biggest numbers? its not that gay is it? this is about combat, right? or do i not understand this at all?

It's about PVE plexing the hardest.

Calling it now... Once the war fronts calm down for some of these major power blocs, they will get involved on the losing side of this faction war crap and flip the tides of these race wars.

too bad yolo left amarr faction a few weeks ago. They weren't getting any fights from you.

In order to gain control of a system, you have to run the plexes that spawn within that system. Offensive plexing is the act of running these plexes for control. Defensive plexing is the act of ensuring these plexes stay in your faction's control. More or less.

It's a PVE activity that can only happen in low-sec systems populated by all of your war targets, which makes it a PVP activity.Farming for LP is pure PVE. A farmer leaves at any sign of hostility. Conquering systems (especially those that the enemy bases in), though, often means establishing space superiority through fighting the enemy and reshipping and returning faster than they do.

Or rather because the main reason behind Minnie success is warzone flippage by Goonswarm guys during their already legendary LP-printing activity. But they already have their "medal".

Not really, what goons did was dump spare lp to get tiers up. Certainly beneficial but they did not take the systems

Last Friday evening the fate of the Amarr Empire seemed sealed with the Matari having conquered 27 out of 28 Amarr systems and Sahtogas being the sole remaining system under the empire's control. In the EVE blogosphere cries of imminent victory could already be heard on several Matari affiliated blogs.

Things turned out differently however. Agony Unleashed, after having recently joined the Amarr side of the conflict, kicked off the weekend by exacting some revenge for their defeat last week in Tannakan early Saturday morning. The Black Watch Guard corporation, with some fire support from Agony Unleashed, then went on to successfully defend Sahtogas throughout the weekend. With the Amarr also offensively plexing elsewhere to bring up contestancy in other systems the Minmatar militia were ultimately left unable to finish the job.

The Minmatar were further hampered by Iron Oxide, one of the main Matari alliances, having their out-of-EVE meet up over the course of last weekend, leaving the Republic a little shorter than usual on fleet commanders and material.

Agony, who have a strong presence in all three time zones, capitalized further by recapturing their home system of Kamela and the neighbouring Lamaa yesterday during Australian prime time, when the Minmatar are traditionally the most hard-pressed for numbers.

For now at least the Amarr Empire holds the line having successfully defended Sahtogas while also recapturing two systems in addition to now occupying the Minmater system of Turnur.
