Hey there, I'm the same guy who wrote an article half-dedicated to talking about how terrible XIX is.

Also, "Daddy" is their alias for UAxDEATH, not CFC. It's not even "Daddy" in the usual English sense of the word but I'm not sure how to translate it correctly anyway.Ask some Russians before writing a post on anything Russian-related, you will save some time and embarrassment. That second post is probably an internal joke or a post from a clueless newbie. Let's make some news about impending CFC<->HBC war based on the "reset TEST" mantra from goons, shall we ?

While I didn't ask around for specific translations, I did find out that the translation was false and noted that. But the reaction to it was worth noting as well.

This translation was either made by someone who isn't part of the Russian Eve community or it's an automatic translation with some correcting. Why not ask someone who can translate/explain it before pushing the news item ? Why not ask someone from the alliance in question after all ? It's not evenews, please don't post shit. Kugu leak is not news, it's just plain disinformation.

I don't know what you're getting your jimmies rustled over, the first translation is correct and I noted that, the second translation is bad and I noted that too. Do I have to cross-reference every single word for semantic meaning? Christ.

Ehm. I'll explain. You don't check your facts or even links you've added yourself. I don't care that much about xxDEATHxx and their future, but I want to read a news site that posts, you know, news. And not news as in "evenews24" but actual news.Let's check the facts then ? Initial alliance mail leak was posted on eve-ru.com forum in the politics section. By a Red Alliance member. In an old thread called "Drones, intrigues and rock'n'roll". With the previous post in it dated by March 28 2012 because he didn't find a better place to post about xxDEATHxx. Second post was posted as a response to it by a Gypsy Band member. Yeah that's right. What's even funnier is that not a single xxDEATHxx member posted in that thread after the initlal alliance mail leak. Kinda changes the perspective, eh ? Some guys are discussing something happening in some other alliance on the other side of the universe, some other guy translates some posts with Google Translate and posts in on kugu, it causes "a small uproar" and a BL member makes a news piece about their neighbor not checking if it's even true.What you posted is shit. I'm sorry but it is. All you needed to do was to ask some Russian player to check the initial source but you didn't.

Problem is that no sane man really wants to submerge himself into the Russian politics in Eve. eve-ru.com forums are a cesspool full of mudslinging and chestbeating. Well, there is an occasional drama with leaks, break ups, backstabs and whatnot, but it's less common and just not worth the effort of checking it consistently. it's just a Russian version of CAOD with the same amount of useful information out of it. And I really doubt you will get anyone from primarily Russian alliances writing for you because they don't really care about non-Russian resources and have no need for PR or anything. It's their biggest strength actually.Mittens can ask BlasterWorm to write something, that would be hilarious.

The Russian politics of eve-ru are terribad, I know, I read there. I'm sure that the folk at themittani can at least have a Russian contact that can translate/edit/add an article just to ensure that if Russians are ever mentioned it is correct in context and translation.

xDeath stopped playing a long time ago, and I won't be surprised if XIX dies in short order. For instance, one of its bigger corps left for RA last week, citing some lukewarm drama and lack of activity as a reason.

RUSROG will translate.

If you want someone to translate and/or help, contact RUSROG in-game.

The original message mentioned taking Legion tech towers. It did not clarify which one. Most people immediately assumed PL, when in fact it was BL. End of story. The original translation of a vague message was correct.

was on K.com, gotta be true.

Nope. The original message mentioned shooting panda towers. That is, PL. There was a discussion on where to get some large towers for a killboard, and this suggestion was slightly more trollish than others. There's a little issue though. Not a single member of XIX was present. Just a bunch of unrelated people discussing things happening on the other side of the galaxy. How did someone manage to twist it into CFC order to attack PL remains a mystery.Perhaps the reason for it is the lack of "us" in the original post. Originally it suggested that Daddy would settle for 4 towers if they were PL (because, you know, PL, not some nonfactor lowsec offilned towers).

We are so totally failing and cascading. Im very scared and alone right now.http://dog-net.org/brdoc/?brid...Oh wait we killed them and were outnumbered by almost a 1/3rd, for a second I thought the propaganda was true.We have never had so much help as now, I hope nothing but the best for BL, and dont be suprised if we join up again, but remember propaganda guys DotBros was 4-7 Entities not only 2.As you can see we both are doing fine without eachother, we simply raped you silly when we teamed up.

Actually, this is a website about among things, a game.It also is a game related news site, and for it to upgrade to a quality game related news site, fact checking is essential

lol they were fighting goons right up until the falcon incident. With pets like that, who needs enemies :D

Heeee... Why did we left 5 tech moons to BL in the first place??

This week has been eventful for Black Legion, to say the least.  Since the breakup with DotBros leader Vince Draken over issues of respect (to summarize: Because of Falcon) and the ensuing fiasco which brought former NC. director Wicked Princess into BL. ranks, the small but tenacious alliance has returned to Venal and set their sights on Legion of xXDEATHXx (XIX).  One week of campaigning has resulted in over 22 billion ISK in losses for XIX, mostly in ratting Tech3s and Dreadnoughts.   Clearly biding their time until an overall CFC victory in Tribute, XIX leader UAxDeath sent this mail to the alliance:

GOAL
From: UAxDEATH
Sent: 2012.10.17 16:34
To: Legion of xxDEATHXx

And so, my dear crabs(?), eg, warriors. You have a new goal. Within 7 days, there must be 5 large POSes on the killboard. If this is not done, the alliance will be disbanded. Thank you all.

This is one of several translations posted to K.com; another caused a small uproar:

Alright!
I know a system next to 6nj - http://evemaps.dotlan.net/system/SS-GED/moons
There are 4 PL* tech towers** there. Quite a worthy goal. I think that if the boards have these towers, then Daddy will give us one without much argument.

The difference between the two is staggering: The first acknowledges only that five large POSes need to die, and the second specifies which ones and why.  The second translation also notes that they are Pandemic Legion tech towers and that 'Daddy' (presumably the CFC) would allow them to keep at least one.  But the second translation is false: Indeed, today XIX reinforced five large towers in K3J, all belonging to Black Legion.  Unfortunately they come out of reinforced in BL's USTZ primetime, which merely ensures them a fight, not the five tower quota.

In the meantime, an announcement was made by Elo Knight that a contract with SOLAR Fleet had been accepted, establishing blue standings between the two.  This means that BL will have their pick of the litter among potential targets - XIX is still staging three jumps away in N5Y and the CFC's staging point in UMI is still within bridge range, but the Neo Curse Coaltion (NCC) on SOLAR's eastern front will provide additional fights.  -A- announced that they will deploy north to defend SOLAR's holdings, but while on paper BL and -A- will be on the same team, BL will only remain blue with SOLAR and pets, leaving -A- yet another potential target. 

Overall it's just another day in Venal - come for the Crystal sets, stay for the goodfights.
