Dear goons, please "burn" something to celebrate your victory. Go kill eve uni or something, simply because it would be hilarious. You guys are exceptional at creating tears, and in game content. High sec misses you, show them how much you love them once again. That is all.

What kind of articles are you folks looking to have written for the site? I sure could use the 500M ISK a month.

So, who gets what?

Why not write something and contribute it? The site covers a broad array of subjects so find a niche and try and fill it.

Geminate: Solar being interested in that space has probably nothing to do with it.

What ever you write, try to keep it as nuetral as possible, Rivers site leans NCDOT your guys site has leaned heavy GSF/CFC Its like watching MSNBC then going to FOX just to find the truth.I do appreciate the other updates like MWO since we all are Tankers,Mechwarriors and Planetside guys in our spare time :) That part is nice.I really also enjoy your "In Depth" looks into behind the scenes eve stuff like new content coming out etc, and I think its where it seperates you and rivers site.I know people think he`s just full of it, fact is he posts thing sometimes before fact checked, in a way its great, for instance he has some battles up 15-20 minutes after they happend now that 60% of Eve fights envolve NCDOT all he has to do is aks in alli what happend :)Stick to what you guys do best, very well written articles [even if I disagree badly, they are perfectly written] and give us stuff we wont see from Kugu and Eve24.MWOTanksPS 2New Space games all great stuff but its Eve insider knowledge IMO is why Mittens is popular and why I read it even though you the enemy :)* wink wink.Also good fighting you guys it was a blast, I do wish number`s were limited or taxed in some way but other than that they were GF`s and its time for us to part way for now. Always makes me sad when we leave an enemy behind not to shoot anymore, in Eve shooting someone from true PVPers is a sign of respect, we carried on a war with you for along time, so you can guage the respect factor based off that, we may have talked shit but Vince in the end said it all, you did well with what you had, I think we did well with what we had as well, so we all won.We wanted those moons anyways.

Just be wary of any "join for a X million isk deposit" offers.

Our approach from the beginning has been the moral high ground. We don't want to be MSNBC to FOX, especially over the last month or so we've been striving to find writers all across New Eden. You don't need to write with any propaganda slant or with any specific loyalties. All we ask is that you like ISK, regardless of what part of the Galaxy you live in.

We have no intention of either attacking Geminate or getting involved in the current "Basically Everyone vs -A- and Solar Fleet" ...... I see three options for CFC pvp outside highsec ganking:- Reset HBC and go to war (would be great for making 0.0 interesting again, but going to happen)- Reset a pet or two, and feed them to the pvp'ers; rinse and repeat- Make up an excuse (Maka will provide one), and go to war with Solar and/or -a-
Avatar
-A- is going out of the way to NOT fight the people after them now... for us to ram our dick into the proverbial space pie, it has to be there in the first place.Because who seriously wants Catch?
Avatar
You only hear from miners when someone threatens their afk kingdom. In all other times they say nothing and expect nothing to change. 90% of them have never shot a ship in anger, so why should we on this site or in EVE in general care what they have to say?
Avatar
Well init is taking catch so I guess they do? CVA seem to get a little bit of it, too.Solar and A- just don't have the numbers to make a competitive opponent. Solar itself only forms 200 or so in russian primetime and the drone regions fleets are often worse than cfc/hbc ones, except with even less numbers and far less isk to back them up. As someone around the drone regions I can tell you now that a lot of us know we're living on borrowed time as far as sov goes.It's entirely possible that the CFC/HBC will end up in a situation where they'll have to do resets to get any decent sized fleet fights.

this is good a time for CFC to consolidate there position and not over extend there reash. I must say I wil be chalaxing a week or two before I start building up my isk reserves for anthor push/war where it might be.

So, NCdot won right? amidoingitrite Riv?

(Editor's Note: The usual disclaimer about alliance updates applies; they are intended for an internal audience and should be considered propaganda, rather than news.)

 Two weeks ago, we faced a dilemma. Our war in Tribute began in August, and due to a variety of factors covered in exhaustive detail in the last CEO Update, the campaign was at last a real meatgrinding war of the old school. Because of the wear and tear on our line members, I strongly considered calling the war to a halt and not pressing into Vale of the Silent at all, but where most of the directorate was exhausted, our FC Team was bloodthirsty and did not want to stop. We gritted our teeth, informed everyone that the winds of our whims had changed and that we were going to take Vale, and stepped into the breach excepting renewed opposition and another months-long slog.

Instead, I'm writing this.

The mere announcement of our invasion compelled Ev0ke to approach us with an easy deal: 250b for all their sov and 45 tech moons. The products of the moons involved almost pay for the deal itself, and we had 1.5t in the wallet at the time. Once news of the Ev0ke sale broke, any will to resist which remained in NCdot collapsed, and they moved to Geminate - a region we have no intention of going to, as it is too far away strategically for us to safely project force.

Making this war's denouement even more of a back-slapping financial circlejerk (just like the TARP, but with moongoo and neckbeards), GSF promptly re-sold eight former Ev0ke Geminate tech moons directly to NCdot. NCdot changed their remaining Vale sov timers for EU instead of AU to make the mop-up easier for the CFC, and after a lot of congratulatory "gf gf" all around, everyone fucked off out of Vale as fast as they could. NCdot went to the SOLAR vs RA/Gypsy/HBC slapfight, Ev0ke went back to FD-MLJ in Syndicate, and we've begun mopping up structures and parceling out spoils.

Wait, what?

After the bitter trench warfare of Tribute, we essentially just won Vale by announcing that we'd be taking it in a hellish sovgrind, without actually going through the 'hellish sovgrind' part. With the exception of one fight in which Mister Vee dumpstered about 70 NCdot Rokhs at the outset of the Vale campaign, there's been no resistance. Vee, TheAdj, DBRB, Laz, Kilgarth, and the Sky Team have been doing tons of work to make this possible, and meanwhile Sion, Kazanir, Rydis and the GSOL directors have been working overtime on handing over 45 moons and half of a monstrous region from incomprehensible Germans to us.

We've never conquered either Tribute or Vale before, so we can now scratch those two off the steadily-shrinking bucket list of "regions Goonswarm hasn't conquered." Road trip to Immensea, anyone?

Wretched Peace

Within the next four days, the remaining NCdot territory in Vale will be in CFC hands. Continue to show up on strat ops as they are called; once Vale is conquered, strat ops will only be for defensive reasons - defending our existing moons/holdings - until we get bored and go back on the warpath.

We have no intention of either attacking Geminate or getting involved in the current "Basically Everyone vs -A- and Solar Fleet" war as it's presently another uncontested structure grind; this evening is the armor timer in C-J6 but Solar/AAA didn't show up to defend it before. We last went to help defend C-J6 when it was held by Red Alliance /against/ AAA, now it's in Solar hands and AAA is defending it. XIX, our friends, hate SOLAR, yet SOLAR and GSF have sort-of gotten along during the fight against NCdot. The point? Getting involved in Russian politics is like sticking your dick in a blender, as the old Northern Coalition learned to their detriment. We're staying out of it.

That means a time of skirmishes, peacetime reimbursement, squad deployments, and scamming, scamming, scamming. For some of you, this brief interlude will be like Christmas; for others, it will drive you up a wall. Eventually, someone will do something stupid and piss us or one of our buddies off and we'll be back to war.

Obligatory Website Plug

We're now looking for Eve contributors: writers with ideas about Eve who would like a platform to offer their opinions and analysis on gameplay or ingame politics in feature pieces on TheMittani.com. Hit me up (Ed: Use the 'Contact Us' form) if you'd be interested in applying; a writing sample to prove you're not an illiterate is the first step. We pay our contributors a hilarious amount of isk: 500m a month for one piece a week, plus bonus isk for each after four. Come write about this silly game, get isk, and fund your sub for free.

The Great Big Euro Goonp From Hell is coming up on November 24th, and already 60 of your fellow nerds will be attending, myself included. The last time I glanced at the thread it was only 55. Some guy from Playboy is going to be there to cover the meet, adding a surreal element to the experience; if we play our cards right, hideously ugly pictures of actual fleshy goons will be included in the magazine, ruining the boners of all three remaining Playboy subscribers with the misfortune to behold the piece.
