Amarr/Minmatar zone - what's up at the moment? (Reloaded)

So the state of the warzone over in the Amarr/Minmatar regions is getting interesting. The value of Amarr LP is falling yet the Amarr are also very strong and capable in terms of military force. In the past few weeks the Amarr have been holding tier nicely at 3/4 noticeably dropping suddenly to T2 last week. At least with the pilots I fly with the general consensus is that we get our best PvP when our tier is low. And this time round has been no different. I have seen the battleships dusted off more times in February than I have in my previous 9 months in FW. This tells me that both sides have their wallets nicely padded and that is good for war.

With Tempest Legion kindly bending the knee to J4PL an the return of Death by Design earlier in the winter/fall The Amarr have had a significant influx in higher skilled players (than their FWEDDIT counterparts) Some heavy fights have been had and I expect them to continue.

New comers to the minmatar side include Hashashin Cartel a USTZ alliance known for occupying much of The Great Wildlands in the past. Republic. an active and bloodthirsty group concentrating much of their efforts into pushing the warzone in minmatar favour. As always, the older Minmatar identities keep pushing on with a nice spike in activity from Ushra' Khan and TRIAD viciously defending their home territory of the Essin constellation.

Pirate gangs active in the warzone at the moment: Pandemic Legion still have their roots in Amamake, Heretic have all but evacuated I think. Tuskers are currently staging in Bosboger so always a gf to be had there. Shadow Cartel and Suddenly Spaceships seem to be the big hitters in the area at the moment. Though I am unsure about pirate entitys in the Amarr side of the WZ at the moment. Maybe someone native to that area can let me know.

I've rarely had to leave Huola (I live here so get my pew whilst dplexing), Kourmonen or Roushzar. This area has been a nice hot spot the past few months.

Yeah we had same when we were last t1. Seems tipping point will be here soon as minmatar pick up speed on the systems amarr are rapidly losing % control of. Once the systems start dropping in numbers of 3 or more a day then farmers will switch side for juicier lp out of minmatar.

Lines drawn in the sand and all that stuff, lets have some fun pewpew in the coming weeks aye guys :)

I would love to come join a fleet or two over there for a change. I'm die hard Caldari and have been since FW started but I have ran a couple of fleets in the Amarr/Matari zone in the past. A long time ago however.

I'd like to get in on an Amarr fleet at some point. I think it would be enjoyable.

Well, we all knew it. Matar and amarrian alike, the warzone is starting to flip. Home systems chosen for fighting the good fight, target systems chosen for glorious offensive campaigns and both sides baying for blood knowing that clearly THEY are the superior pvpers, SOV gamers, trollers, button orbiters or blobbers.

Will it flip as usual? down to the last few systems for amarr or will the amarr apply enough resistance to hold back the initial frenzy of minmatar action? Who knows! but one thing I do know, killboards will be full of exploding spaceships and in the midst of all the destruction we all have to ask ourselves, friend or foe...

How do I do one more plex without stabbing myself in the eye?

Word on the street is that FILO CEO Chester FP has disbanded the entire corp last night and stated that he's unsubbing from eve for reasons unknown, but corp members are pissed and what's left of them are moving to null. Also, I have heard on the side that DBD may be moving back to null also. So looks like amarr won't be packing the punch it once had. I've already started buying loads of amarr stuff for the 30% price increase as it starts to get worse.

I think the problem was, once we hit t5 about a month ago. Things got boring, and because j4lp had expanded so quickly, it had started losing respect for its fellow FW members... Doing w/e the **** they wanted. Including PEWing friendlies. Maybe they got the goon's/test virus? Who knows, they will always deny it thinking they are their own thing. Anyways, So then the civil war happened, and our tier bar tanked as it became more about awoxing. j4lp went to null for a tad after the war and things didnt return back to normal.

Here's what i think will happen in the next coming months.

Amarr US TZ/ Eu TZ will be pretty nonexistent large scale fleets. But I do hear the Ausie's throw together some pretty good stuff. Matar, if they get everyone on board. Will hit t5 in no time. PL, SC, SS Will hit hard on Matar until its reached it's goal and no longer needs to roll out many iHub fleets. They will then leave the bleak lands looking for more pew.

Anndddddd 5 months from now. One amarrian corp will rise. It will band all its bro's together and lead them to victory against the matar and the cycle will repeat itself. Who will it be? Who knows? I don't. All I know is that being in amarr/matar has gotta be way more fun than caldari/gallente just looking at their stats.


See you on the battlefield.

-Inserting obligatory 'didn't need those systems anyway' response.-

Didn't need those systems anyway. I wonder how much will be left when I get back lol. Thought I'd say happy xmas to all those in all militias. Enemies or not we make our own content and the last few months for me at least has been a blast.

The farm cycle, do you see it? There is no war, no conflict .. only the almighty LP farm.

Addendum: My apologies for underestimating the strength of the farm, two weeks ago I (guess)estimated that the zone would flip around new years with most systems being around 50% contested. Missing by an entire week is unforgivable, but data has been assimilated so it will not happen again.

Even more addendum: Revise the bloody thing already CCP, you were not shy when it came to executing the mass-flip infini-farm but swapping it out for a delayed mass-flip infini-farm did not actually do anything.
Timer auto-runs, neutral participation (as in actual mechanics supported participation) etc.. The holidays are for sissies, get to work you slackers!

I am new to FW and PvP in general and if there are any fleets in the Amarr area that people have open to anyone then please do send me a message in game.

I spent 100% of my time in High Sec on my main guy and now I want to experience the low sec FW fun. So yeah, please do send me a message in game if you have a fleet spot for me and friend.

The cycle is pretty annoying but we live with it. You will get your standard WINMATAR post about how they "started the push" and "did all the hard work" when in reality no one has seen or heard from WINMATAR or many other Minmatar until the Russians came to farm the LP.

The only Minmatar of note since the great Amarr flip of Autumn 13 are TRIAD in Eszure and Iron Oxide. Those guys put up a fight every time, long may it continue.

I'm just waiting for the band wagon to roll into town.
