tl;dr - Thank you devs!

Ladistier VI - Moon 4 - President Bureau – One day after the momentus victory, Luminaire General X Gallentius laid out the brilliant Gallente militia strategy for winning Factional Warfare.

""It’s appropriate that we have saved Ladistier until last since it was the first system taken by the PERVS over four years ago in their conquest of our space. The story of our rise to dominance doesn’t start with a ragged group of militia pilots bonding together when we were at the bottom. It doesn’t end with these same militia pilots guiding the rest of the militia to a common goal. No, it begins a long time ago, in a comms channel that has been forgotten by nearly all Gallente militia pilots. From here, we devised a strategy for total domination. From here, we laid out a three step process to win FW.

Step 1: Metagame:
We knew the first key to victory was winning the metagame. We started this a long time ago when we somehow managed to get CCP chatgris a programming job. He was able to study the code, find potential exploits and then let the rest of us know. More importantly, he was able to reprogram Caldari rats to attack Damar Rocarion on our command.

But this wasn’t enough. We had to have explicit control over the plexing mechanics.This was done by inserting a French employee to oversee FW mechanics (Yttr) and manipulating all of the FW players into voting our puppet Hans onto the CSM. With the metagame complete, we turned our attention Caldari politics.

Step 2: Fill Caldari Militia with Spais and Traitors:
The center of gravity of an enemy must be destroyed if he is to be defeated. The Caldari center of gravity was not super easy missions and plexes, it was not thousands of afk plexing alts. Their center of gravity was militia cohesion. First, CCP chatgris recruited Caldari FC Super Chair into QCATS. Once indoctrinated in "The way of the Mew”, he went back to Caldari militia. But from that point on he was our man and it was his job to destabilize the Caldari State Capturing alliance and their allies. He had some success, and eventually he took his alliance and his friends off to Amarr space so that we could capture all the systems more quickly.

SC’s contribution, however, was nothing compared to that of Don “I’m dead!” Bolsterbomb. Although his bio says “Traitor to the Federation”, The Don has always been our guy. He single handedly lead hundreds of future Caldari war heroes astray during his time in the Caldari militia with his deliberate attempts to get his fleets slaughtered. But more importantly, he was able to manipulate the entire Caldari militia into wardec’ing each other. Cohesion destroyed. Bolster also took his remaining corp members to Amarr space. Today he lives on a militia pension of 500 million isk/month for all of his efforts.

Step 3:Grind out the Victory:

After the “October Surprise” (not really a surprise to us because we told CCP Yttr to do it - yes we were ready and we took full advantage of it) where the plexing mechanics were changed without warning, Gallente were able to hold just about 60 systems. It was now up to us to grind out a victory against the demoralized Caldari corporations and alliances one at a time - knowing full well they would never help each other.

The first step was to clear out Southern Placid. With the EUTZ and USTZ Caldari not communicating, it was really easy for us to dominate the USTZ to take Southern Placid. Damar and his Finnish cohorts moved to Ladistier, and Amarrian Veangance (while courageous), also had to evacuate Ostingele and head back to Amarr space.

This was the plan of action that Gallente Militia war room had decided upon long ago. If there was any sort of game play feature that impeded our progress, we would make sure CCP Yttr, CCP chatgris, and Hans would take care of it. An unstable war front with hundreds of thousands of afk plexing alts clearly favored the Caldari, so we had CCP Yttr get rid of it for the more stable system we have now. Plexes were adjusted so they clearly favor Gallente now (thanks Hans), and whenever we needed it, CCP chatgris showed us a new exploit (or created one) to give us a leg up.

And so it was the same for Kinakka (Casoff), Enaluri (Kraken.), then Rakapas (Happy Endings). These three alliances never helped each other defend their systems and soon they all left FW. Then Okkamon (who the hell lives there?). It was in Okkamon that we first noticed the large effect DUST has on the effort to take or hold a system - especially Ikoskio with a 50% bonus to Caldari. So , once we had most things settled, we told CCP to launch DUST and then we sent the DUST bunnies to Ikoskio to knock that percentage down.

From here on out the writing was on the wall. We next took Eha since it was mostly German and lacked any USTZ presence. And finally, we arrive here today, sitting at the President’s Conference Room in Ladistier. Mission Accomplished!

I would like to thank all of the devs for making this victory possible, and I would like to announce that the CEO of the FDU Corbolia Palmezine has agreed to set up two Caldari Wildlife Preserves. No FDU pilots are allowed to kill Caldari vessels in the Urpiken and Ieyema Constellations without a license. This license can be purchased from CCP chatgris at the State Protectorate Testing Facilities in Asakai which is the former headquarters for the State Protectorate.""

Somehow I even believe it partially.
Have even already heard parts of that some months ago...
Gal T5 short before the stealth patch in inferno was announced was toooooo suspicious :D
Fact is: With inferno and the ewar issue CCP wrecked amarr militia. All farmers went to minmatar and amarr couldn´t recover. With the stealth patch in inferno changing fw while gals having advantages they wrecked cal militia.
Working over 9 months on fw without really fixing anything but making it worse would really deserve a medal...

Well, given CCP's track record of having Devs favouring certain alliances with T2 BPO's and insider knowledge, one wouldn't be surprised if every word in the OP was true.

They've done it before, the Devs responsible didn't get fired nor demoted, so it wouldn't surprise me if the same shenanigans would occur again.

If the caldari could ever work together for even 48 hours without shooting each other, they would have dominated the warzone. The first reaction among the gallente guys I know was "oh ****, we're screwed, we have to lock down our home systems and maybe select 4-5 key systems we may be able to hold".

I really don't know what I'm more impressed by -- the glory of this immaculate post or that anyone would believe a word of it.

The pursuit of excellence and stabbed plexing alts.

One important detail omitted from the OP - How did Bolsterbomb get his fleets repeatedly slaughtered without giving away that he was a spy? He talked his pilots into repeatedly attacking arguably the strongest position that Gallente held at that time, Nennamaila with fantasies of taking the system. A brilliant plan indeed.

There is a reason for his rather large militia pension. Bolsterbomb was really that good.

You guys have a system for that too chatgris you of all people should remember how it works. Big smile

When ever the moons align and the stars shine bright enough, allowing Caldari to form competent fleets, (yea know back before Drakes were nerfed into oblivion) allowing to fighting head to head to the Gal blob, you guys simply dock up and snored us to death.

It was a quite effective tactic I must admit, I mean we could welp 100 fleets and not get as demoralized as having to wait 30, 40mins to 1 hour or more for the Gals to undock if they would at all. Then if they did it always became the argument of who would jump in to who.. or hey we can't fight more than 2 jumps away from Heydieles.

This was the true tactics that killed the Caldari Militia.. we were simply bored to death by stall tactics and hoards of stabbed frigs in plexes giving us loads of boring PVP that ran off most of our competent pilots.

Are you guys daft or what? I have not seen stabbed Incurses. But I do not doubt that there are gal farmer alts that fly such abominations.

But what you fail to understand is that you have your own farmer alt hordes. I do have personal experience with herds of stabbed condor and merlin alts and with the last patch the wonderful squid venture alts that attempt to peacefully graze in the now monoculture but abundant field of gallente controlled space filled with sites containing a lone cross of red with a gallente affiliation. Show us your empirical data about an imbalance of actual in-game farming alts or stfu. Then also explain how that imbalance actually took Squid base home systems in the warzone like Raka, Okka, Eha, OMS, and Lad.

CCP, there are off buttons for ship explosions, missile effects, turret effects, etc. "Immersion" does not seem to be harmed by those. So, [u]please[/u] give us a persisting off button for the jump gate and autoscan visuals.

You never had to deal with both Caldari & Amarr farmer alts like we had to deal with both Gal & Min. There was one point it was so bad I couldn't even enter a system with out seeing either a Gal or Min farmer alt in some gun-less abortion of a ship. This is what stopped Caldari from defending systems months ago.

You guys want to look at the current events as to why things flipped over so badly, but the damage was done months ago, when we were simply bored to tears of chasing gun-less stabbed frigs out over every open plex on the map. Add to that no real fleet fights and people just got bored and stopped logging in or went off to do other things.
