I'll hazard a guess that there are Tech moons for Razor.

XDeath basicly carebears and gatecamped in N5Y... but that was about it, didn't see any of them on ops.

This stage is probably a darn site harder than shooting ships and pos's. Still what do you do when you control as much space as reasonably expected and more than anyone at any time during New Edens history?Welcome to Empire, I hope you get the industrial infrastructure 0.0 deserves to survive.

Hi! Until you've felt the utter terror as three cynosural fields open in a system you're in as local spikes, then the absolute elation as you realise that the spike is xDeathx once again dropping from mist-filled skies like vodka-addicted greatcoat-wearing superheroes, you have no right to comment :(xdeathx were amazing in this latest campaign.

rzr doesn't want anymore space. we're more than fine with tenal

By the way, this should be viewed by non-CFC not as bragging, but as a public-service announcement. Now you know where you need to go to shoot the CFC member of your choice. ;)

so many systems to shoot blues in, it'll be hard to get them all even with this helpful list.

Someone is going to waltz into these comments declaring that mittens has too many personal botting constellations or something.

What's CFC next goal now that DotBros have been purged from Tribute, Vale & Geminate?Few possible things:(1) Do nothing & slowly decline due to inactivity (just like the old Northern Coalition), until a new enemy coalition with active player-base forms to threaten entire CFC's sovereignty. I don't think any1 is willing to attack CFC as of now.(2) Go for bigger TECHNECTIUM profit by harassing COBALT moon holders @ Amarr space (and it's surroundings) to cause a major strain on alternative supply route to Platinum Technite production.[Each Cobalt moon currently has an equivalent value of 1/5 of TECH moon, so taking 5 Cobalt moon is same as taking 1 Tech moon](3) Start a temporary friendly war with HBC - Limited war, no soverignty or supercapitals involved.

FCON doesn't want, and isn't getting space in Vale.

Heh those claims always make me laugh, Mittens sure is one hell of an internet spaceship busy-body with all his in-game accomplishment despite the fact that he hardly logs in (and mostly plays MechWarrior or Tanks).

Fidelas Constans seems to always bring large numbers one of the top 3 constantly but doesnt get rewarded much consistently, unless they got lots of tech moons? you did say the centre of vale was full of tech and they were given 7 systems there.

Ha ha ha SMA didnt get shit! EAT THAT EX RIVER!Congrats to FA, Gents, GOML, and Convicted.

I'm afraid you're wrong on the cobalt thing: tech is anchored at 20x cobalts value not 5x. That sure does sound like fun though!

Keep an eye on Branch sovereignty in the coming weeks. :)

Not neccesarily, if you do the math, 5 Cobalt is equivalent to 1 Tech.100 Cobalt + 10 platinum = 20 Platinum technite(500 Cobalt + 50 platinum = 100 Platinum technite)100 Technetium + 100 platium = 100 Platinum techniteCurrently, the price is not balanced, but eventually, COBALT is expected to bring down the price of TECHNETIUM unless cobalt's supply base (In Amarr low-sec space & HBC space) becomes severely disrupted.fyi, Cobalt is currently valued more than certain R64 moons such as Promethium & Thulium.

Jita-ganking is usually a short-term form of entertainment, whereas harassing ~1500 Cobalt Moons (Maybe only ~500 if HBC cooperates with CFC) to maintain cash-flow is more of a long-term project.Where's the"No not believing in yourself" spirit?

Instead of sov, they probably got new juicy Tech moons.

You have got to be kidding.You think the CFC or the HBC want to burn out their logi-backbone??

Indeed xXDeathXx seems to be significantly less useful compared to Gentlemen and C0nvicted (these two picked from those rewarded). Total average monthly kills for the recent 6 months (xDeathx - Gentlemen - C0nvicted) 1735 - 3991 - 2978. Average kills per member 1.4 - 2.1 - 3.1. Average monthly efficiency 55% - 87% - 90%. In fact 55% likely means that xDeathx is not as active at CTA as the other two. Let's see the xDeathx systems of activity (EVE-KILL data) for the past 4 months (total kills per system, top five) 6NJ8-V (0.0) 885 N5Y-4N (0.0) 741 K3JR-J (0.0) 495 M-OEE8 (0.0) 353 6W-HRH (0.0) 217 Only M-O is in Tribute, the four others are NPC systems in Venal. Any comments? :)

It's true that Cobalt has overtaken some of the less loved r64's, but it isn't going to be worth 1/5th of tech because you've made a pretty big error in that maths.100 Technetium + 100 Platinum = 200 Platinum Technite (Not 100, sorry)100 Cobalt + 10 Platinum = 20 Platinum TechniteSo the alchemy will only drag tech down to a little over 10x Cobalt's price before the alchemy reaction becomes unprofitable and nobody does it. Realistically because of the work required (albeit not that much) those doing the alchemy are gonna expect to make a solid profit so I do not think it will get much closer to the 10x mark than it is now without another game mechanics change.

pft lol giving convicted the gateway from drone space is quite laughable

More likely have small deployments in npc 0.0 until either our or our friends' sov is threatened, or we have a need for war.
Avatar
We don't have CTAs. We have never had CTAs.I would suggest you look at respective alliances, the sizes of respective alliances and the overall activity. You'll find XIX is a little bit smaller. Have you been personally involved in this war?also jesus h christ with a cherry on top never quote killboard stats again :|

inb4: full of goons.

With the northern war ended, the Clusterfuck Coalition has been busy with internal negotiations. Technetium moons and sovereignty space must be parceled out. Failure here can sow the seeds of distrust and greed that, for instance, helped undermine the old Northern Coalition. Success will strengthen the bonds between the coalition members.

Paying Tribute

Current Map

Goonswarm Federation will be retaining most of the space it presently holds in Tribute, except for a few key jumpbridge systems that will be used to provide transit to and from Vale. Joining them in Tribute will be Circle-of-Two, an alliance who have been longtime Venal residents and have not felt the shackles of sovereignty in many years. They finally have a new home in the 03C-SU constellation. Tactical Narcotics Team will also receive some space in western Tribute, primarily to grant them additional tech moons.

Evaluating Vale

Vale of the Silent is a huge region, but its division is hampered somewhat by the fact that the region's best trusec is concentrated in a small area in the very center of the region, with a tertiary constellation in the east. That said, the CFC's Corps Diplomatique has done an admirable job of cutting the Gordian knot, with space being awarded to the following alliances (click on the alliance name to view their alloted space):

C0nvicted

Fidelis Constans

Gentlemen's Agreement

Legion of xXDeathXx

The UK- and OSJ constellations are TBD.

This arrangement means that C0nvicted and Gentlemen's Agreement are now the dominant sovereignty holders of Vale of the Silent and represents a substantial reward for those alliances for their efforts during the war against NCDOT. Their space is chosen not only with an eye to its intrinsic value, but historical irony as well. Gentlemen's Agreement was formed by former Majesta Empire leadership (full disclosure: I am the CEO of GENTS and was deposed as the leader of Majesta in September of 2009), and occupies most of the space previously occupied by that alliance; likewise, C0nvicted rebelled openly against former allies R.A.G.E in Geminate in response to what leader Wusti termed 'unfair treatment' at roughly the same time that GENTS was formed. Both alliances have a past with the region, and now, it seems, they have a future with it as well.

Musical Space Chairs

Pure Blind

Branch

With Tribute in the hands of GSF, the Swarm is now free to focus their holdings in the Deklein-Tribute area, ceding their space and tech moons in Pure Blind to Fatal Ascension. Likewise Get Off My Lawn is uprooting the cheerfully-painted gnomes from their Pure Blind turf and moving into the verdant, grassy, oppressively peaceful region of Branch, occupying the space formerly held by GENTS. This consolidation leaves Fatal Ascension as the dominant sovereignty holders of both Fade and Pure Blind, an unprecedented level of control that leaves them as the holder of the single largest volume of space in the CFC other than GoonSwarm itself. This reward is well-justified, primarily through Fatal Ascension's large size and consistent, significant contribution towards fleet numbers.
