On the DUST side of things the Gallente are uselessCaldari bunnies are hopping all over the Gallente without much trouble and 90% of our games are easy wins but i expect most of this is due to the FW event rewards in DUST hence why most players are in FW and not pubsWe are seeing full 6man corps trying to Q sync FWAt the current rate Caldari will easily hold the ground, its the space pilots which are the problem here

Looks like our push last night was fruitful! We got it before down time!

It is nice to see Dust forces playing a role, hope it expands in the future.

You're thinking of Dust's version of sovereignty. We got FW battles a while before conquest started in Molden Heath.

As always the Gallente can't do anything without the Minmatar holding their hands.Everytime they claim to have done anything - It always turns out the Minmatar really did it for them.

J4LP/Amarr (Almity) showed up and threw cheap ships at it for fun tonight. Got accused of "blobbing too much logi" when we brought a fight to a foreign warzone that had 90+ hostile in it. We brought FRIGATES. After much waiting around we did get a good fight with the cruiser fleet they upshipped to. Our dessies did great damage. Was a fun night!http://j4lp.eve-kill.net/?a=ki...edit: fixed the most drunken typos

Heydieles, Essence Region - Friday, October 11th saw a sudden offensive begin as Russian Matari alliance Smile 'n' Wave <WAVE> invaded the Caldari-held system Heydieles with heavy support from several Gallente corps and alliances, with fighting spilling over into both Old Man Star and Ladistier. The area is primarily held by the predominantly Russian Caldari alliance Old Man Gang <OMG>.

The fighting in space has been brutal. Several thousand ships have been destroyed thus far (1127 on Sunday alone according to Dotlan) in constant skirmishes and pitched battles. The space fight in Heydieles thus far has seen a distinct advantage go to the Gallente and Minmatar JTF.

For the first time in months, DUST ground forces have been playing a pivotal role in a system capture effort. At the time of this writing (approx 0100 Monday morning Eve Time) contested percentage in Heydieles has fluctuated from 80%-92% as the fight on the ground has swung back and forth between the two factions, but the Caldari have done an excellent job of holding more than half the districts almost all weekend.

The Gallente and Minmatar hope to have Heydieles captured by downtime Monday in order to move their beachhead from Yvangier to that system and begin focusing efforts on Old Man Star in an effort to push Old Man Gang out of the area, and plug their flank before TEST is able to join FW in the next week. If Caldari ground forces continue their dominance in planetary battles, the capture may be pushed out another day, giving the invasion a significant delay and giving the Caldari further time to rally additional support.
