I was wondering after reading about the Amarr Civil Wars, the Caldari and the Minmatar. Why is it that the Gal Mil never falls into them.

Gallente are mostly peaceful hippies.

Above all, we enjoy sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll.

And killing squids. And neutrals.

And the occasional galmil corp that refuses to chill with the rest of us.

It is just that you Gals confuse intermilitia wardecs with group hugs.

Just in the last few months there was SoTF and Tipiaks deccing over loot.
Monkeys have had decs with Repeat Offenders and C.L.O.N.E
A few other unimportant groups here and there as well.


Here are the highlights of the GalMil group hugs so far this year.

'While we are techically about to be at war against Repeat 0ffenders you are NOT to engage them, and they shouldn't engage you'
or my fav
'As your notifications will no doubt tell you, we declared war against a fellow Gal Mil alliance, and then retracted it a short time later'

The secret of GalMil love is all in these awesome parties we regularly organize in our home stations.

CalMil should do it to, in their own home sys... wait, no, nevermind. P

What I'm talking about is ful on Civil War. As in Khan and borg were ran off, or WINMATAR and losematar. Why doesn't that happen in the GalMil?

Because pirate factions arent part of FW. If they were Galmil would quickly buckle under the pressure and fall to infighting. Pirate

The Coreli Corporation is recruiting.

If you want a serious answer, I'll give you a serious question: why does that happen in other militia?

I can think of two reasons: silly personal drama (which I'm glad we don't have much of) or valuable assets (such as moons, of which I don't know much about).

Other than that, just go pirate if you don't want blues.

Historically, GalMIl has been outmanned and outgunned, and under pressure for the vast majority of the FW timeline. That forces folks to either HTFU and put personal differences aside in order to save their collective butts, or they failcascade. GalMil chose the first option.

I also think that the tendency of failed nullbears to use FW to refill their coffers has a lot to do with it. None of them join GalMIl, so we don't have the same influx of arrogant money grubbing know it alls who want to come in and tell us how things are supposed to be done, all while expecting us to bow before their obvious superiority.

In GalMil, we're pretty happy to let folks do their own thing, and hook up for great justice when needed.

We Gallente have a saying: "CCP created the Gallente Militia to train the Fighters..."

If someone starts **** we just grief them the **** out of fac war. The reason it doesn't really happen that much in gal mil is because of our core long standing members. We don't let it happen. Most folks who start **** are on the "outside" of said group, so it really doesn't affect us and they get bounced.

Having been out of fac war for a while now my experience is somewhat dated, however I would agree with princess.....there was always a core of guys (looking at vlill and nenna local there still about!) that would always be on comms organising, discussing and leading the general militia 'direction'. This in itself creates a community and brings people and corps together, things that have always been absent from the other militias in the long term from what I've heard.

Confirming.

In all seriousness, we don't have major civil wars because people don't want them, and do their best to avoid them. It requires people to swallow their pride and not be so butthurt all the time, but ultimately it means no civil conflict. Everyone gets exactly what they want, and if neither party wants a civil war, it doesn't happen.

The more interesting thing is that both Khan and Winmatar fit right in when they joined Gallente Militia. What's up with that?
