Tribal Liberation Force on verge of historic victory

News reaches Gutter Press, that the Tribal Liberation Force is on the verge of a historic victory in the militia war, with TLF fighters in position to capture all of the warzone, a feat that has never before been accomplished by the TLF.

Liberation !

While Gutter Press has previously reported on the possibility of a TLF victory, such reports were premature, with the Amarr forces being able to hold on to a single system, before eventually reversing the TLF advance.

Vindication !

Sources within the Republic Fleet have indicated that YC118 victory medals are in plentiful supply, despite the recent scandals involving previous unissued campaign medals.

Medals !

Sanmatar Maleatu Shakor is rumoured to be preparing to make a speech which will likely be broadcast on the 20th or 21st of this month, congratulating the TLF members, and issuing demands to the Imperial authorities.

Reactions to the historic outcome have been varied:
"I think this'll make that new Empress make some concessions", said a Sebiestor starship mechanic, formerly resident in Amamake.
"I'm not sure that there's anything left to liberate over there. I thought everywhere had been evacuated", wondered a Sebiestor exotic dancer.
"I hope this is the beginning of the end of the war", said a Sebiestor motorcycle hooligan.
"I've heard this was facilitated by the release of those new Citadel things", said a Sebiestor bartender.
"I bet Shakor's speech will make that Brutor lot claim it was them, and not the Sebiestors that won it", opined a Sebiestor environmental technician.

Gutter Press will continue to monitor the situation and report on any changes.

Minmatar started the war knowing the path before Sarum came to power.

The Amarrian queen lost her prowess

The united Minmatar conquered.

My Vargur and my BOBS Panther coast idle waiting to support these changes in Universal Perspective. The future unburdened by the past is the next step after the victories demoralize the religions that I fled many years ago.

Not that long planet side, too long in space mind you.

Death. To. Amarr.

The Elder Fleet has been rebuilt! Wasn't actually formed up for the final system....but it does indeed exist once more. The cowardly oppressors fell so fast that the Elder Fleet wasn't even able to get into position fast enough for the final bash. Instead the final battle was more of a steam roll from a several dozen rusty ships and a few general militia capital ships.

I look forward to my medal commemorating approximately 8 years of service to the ideals of freedom.

Pssh. Gutter Press, guys.

Though looking at the map the entire warzone is under Minmatar control.

A Minmatar warship is like a rusting Beetle with 500 horsepower Cardillac engines in the rear, armour plating bolted to chassis and a M2 Browning stuck on top.

Literally bored the other side's powerhouses into going elsewhere, then came and rushed the warzone.

Can't say I'm a fan of the strategy, but damn did it work.

My congratulations to the TLF. Now maybe CONCORD will come up with a better solution than wargames for eggers that tear entire systems apart, the Republic and the Empire will open diplomatic negotiations, and all weapons get turned into festival launchers while the empires, pirates, Sleepers and Drifters hold hands and sing happy songs together in a peaceful New New Eden where there is no poverty or hate or crime.

LAST.

Welcome to the international club. It's good that we now include everybody.

In all seriousness, great job, I'm glad that the nation that spurred these neverending state sponsored conflicts finally reached a milestone common to all other civilized people. Can we stop now? or maybe Slavery!?

Medals? To obsessed with freedom fanatics and criminals?

That is so outraging that even Constantly Outraged Sebiestor shall be outraged.

Honored are the dead, for their legacy guides us.

they met the bar for capsuleer militia conquest. They deserve their medal. It just means as little as the other three "conquest" medals before it. great job, you farmed and fought well just as we have in the past. I've got a shiny medal saying I "conquered" the minmatar... what does that really mean, how little is it really worth?

Absolutely nothing! You can't even get free coffee from a 'militia' cafeteria by flashing it at the cafe lady!

Same thing with the ranks, in fact. They also mean nothing. I had never seen any capsuleer getting an armada under their command because of these ranks either. Decision on who leads what armada is always under contractors' own jurisdiction.

I say give it another few months and the Amarr will move right back in again.

Slight correction. I've been getting free coffee in Tzvi from the Cafe Marlinea for the last six years. A Gallente run joint, my militia status has meant nothing there from day one. The rest of your points remain true.

Victory is usually considered a binary condition - you have it or you don't. 'On the verge of' doesn't really count.

I shall look forward to confirmation.

Edit: I believe this has been confirmed. This morning, a Vherokior suffering from a fairly serious hangover waved his medal at the barista in my favourite coffee shop. At least, I think it was a medal - very small, and with a pink ribbon tied around it?

Humanity has won its battle. Liberty now has a country.

I think last time this happened, someone jinxed it, and it didn't turn out to be a victory at all.

Congratulations to the Matari on your, "victory."

Outside of thousands of Matari dead, what have you achieved with it?

That's right, nothing save bragging rights.

I understand your fixation on the Empire, but you're really fighting the wrong enemy.

Cut the strings. End the pendulum war.

Everyone fighting in the proxy wars are indeed fighting for nothing, but they're certainly not fighting the wrong enemy. There is a point in fighting, providing a symbol and displaying the values and principles you fight for, to baseliners and others. It's a matter of inspiring rather than achieving military goals and such.

Which of course makes this 'victory' entirely bloody pointless indeed, but the fight itself is not.

Sinjin, until our people are free, the Empire will remain the enemy.

Except for inspiration, of course.

But then, that fades pretty quickly after a few months of, "I thought we won?"

And now it's the other side's turn to 'win' and then it'll be our turn again, then theirs and... well, so it goes.

We have achieved... something, huh?
