Less Tears | Save Jita: Take Hisec Back!!

As a primarily highsec PVP alliance, we have become greatly disturbed by Goonswarm's recent threats to cause Jita to burn. The biggest complaint that carebears have about so-called unconsensual PVP is the false reality that there is nothing they can do to fight back. I want to show carebears and hisec dwellers that this is wrong. As a result, I intend to organize a resistance against Goonswarm in their pre-planned Jita interdiction.

While many people will no doubt be content to simply whore onto Goonswarm killmails as they go GCC, we plan on taking a much more active role in defending Jita against these self-proclaimed nullsec griefers. From what i've seen on the forums, many other people seem interested as well and as a result, we will be organizing a SAVE JITA campaign. While our fights against TEST this past weekend might not seem like it was that impactful, I guarantee every hauler that came through the gates while we were fighting was thankful. Once we get enough additional groups that are interested in assisting in this crusade for justice, I will create a mailing list and organize a formal coalition that we can all coordinate efforts through.

To people who might be doubting our intentions, I think it's worth pointing out that we're more anti-nullsec than anything else. We generally only war dec Nullsec alliances to kill them when they come to highsec. Its extremely rare that we war dec highsec alliances that primarily reside in Highsec and when we do it's usually a merc contract. I would like to remind everyone that while our playstyles may be different, at the end of the day we consider ourselves to be highsec residents first and foremost.

While we may get most of our kills in Highsec, they're still against players from Nullsec alliances. The main theme of this event is showing that Highsec isn't just this space to be abused by the whims of Nullsec entities and can in fact come together and fight when pushed around.

Why this impacts you
As highsec dwellers we resent this incursion of nullsec players upon highsec, who seem intent on imposing the ways of elite PVP upon people who have absolutely no interest in fighting and just want to go about doing their business. While many people may be against the Jita interdiction because they don't like Goonswarm, I urge you to think about the implications if this event is allowed to go on unhindered. I urge you to think of the innocent hauler who was only going to Jita to sell assets that would secure his corp's financial future, weeks worth of worth, instantly gone. I urge you to think of the Goonie that forgets to change his clone location and gets podded back to nullsec. If you are primarily a hisec dweller, this affects you directly whether you would like to believe it or not.

Just because there are no TCUs doesn't mean the sovereignty of hisec doesn't belong to the mission runners, miners, industrialists, and Incursion runners that populate it. Hisec must stand united in order to show these nullsec pubbies that we are NOT the easy prey that they think we are. With the proposed changes to war dec prices, it will be extremely cheap for large nullsec dwellers prey on small alliances without fear of being dec'd themselves due to their built in dec shield.

What can you do to help?
If you are serious about helping out, please contact me in-game for details. Anyone and everyone is welcomed and encouraged to help. This includes PVP and PVE pilots alike. Experience preferred, but not needed by any means. As long as you can fly something with guns, please get in contact with me and we will let you know our plans and what you can do specifically to help when the time gets closer.

I guarantee you a free-for-all the likes that hisec has never before seen for all that choose to join in. People have long doubted the carebear's ability to fight back and defend themselves, calling them easy targets. While this may have been true in the past, I intend to show how deadly they can be with a little direction.

April 28th 2012 shall be remembered as the day that hisec stood together united.

EDIT: It has been brought to my attention that some people would like to offer prizes for various achievements. If you or your corporation is interested in donating ISK or ships for prizes, please see the below post on how to get involved.

UPDATE: Future CSM Alekseyev Karrde and his small gang PVP mercenary alliance, Noir. Mercenary Group, has officially declared their participation in this event and will be assisting on the 28th.

Winning Prizes
To be eligible for prizes you will need to be API verified on our event killboard. Kills starting April 27th to April 30th will be counted for contest purposes. Once this is over we will start delivering prizes to winning recipients. Also, only kills in Jita will count for contest purposes, though this may be subject to change.. Finally, I reserve the right to deny or alter someone's kill totals if I suspect they attempted to manipulate the contest, though this will be only taken as a last resort.

If you would like to be considered for prizes I need you to EVEMail me with your corp director's custom API with 256 enabled for killboard pulling. I apologize for the inconvenience, but unless you want to join the holding corp, this is the only way I can do this.

Killboard link

Prize Donations
If you would like to donate a prize for the contest, please direct all contracts and ISK prizes towards Tauri Venna (Alekseyev Karrde's holding toon). Then send Pinky Feldman (me) an EVEmail with the prize you have donated and what category you would like it to go under. Items that are sent without a mail will be considered donations and will be appropriated to prize categories as I see fit. Custom categories are welcome as well. If you would like to be credited or remain anonymous please specify that as well. All contracted prizes should be located in Jita 4-4.

If you want to donate, but would prefer to help more directly, ISK donations towards the war dec fee are especially welcome and should be sent to Tauri Venna and accompanied with an EVEmail to me just like prize donations. With ISK donations, make sure you include what you want the ISK to be used for under the "reason" category when giving it.

When I get enough donations, I will release the above categories with their respective prizes.

Hmm, yes, this is clearly the best solution to use against alpha ships. We must implement it immediately.

Last time I checked, CONCORD will turn up in less time than it takes to reload in Jita...
And even if the Goons boomerang perfectly they won't last long... 15mins "POP"

I'm turning up in Badgers filled with minerals... I'll do the flying, CONCORD does the shooting, Goons do the dying...
I get another Badger....

Reminds me of a song...

BADGER, BADGER, BADGER, BADGER, BADGER, BADGER, BADGER, BADGER, BADGER....
GOON, GOON...

There is no such thing as a fair fight...

If your fighting fair you have automatically put yourself at a disadvantage.

Reminds me of mass effect, with the goons being the reapers.

To be honest I sort of hope Jita does burn, but it would be a really awesome one-of-a-kind event to see high sec corps band together to fight the goons attack on Jita. So in that aspect I wish you the best of luck.
