If the allied forces now smelling blood in the water and massing like a school of sharks around the corrupt and soon to be defunct (probably, hopefully) Imperium what are we grrrgoon folks going do do? Who are we going to hate? Who can we blame?

May i be the first to blame Seraph IX Basarab ? All the ills in the world have to be someones fault and he has stuck his head over the parapet. Big smile

*sigh*......and so it starts. Oh, and IBTL,too.

To buck the popular trend, I began to Rage Start instead of Rage Quit.

...and every time I get another piece of Carbon, I know exactly what CCP is getting this Christmas.

I give it about another month or two before the "allies" start bickering and squabbling with each other about how to carve up the Goonspace they haven't even conquered yet, and flounce off all buttmad with each other.

You'll probably just hate whoever ends up on top.

It's what people like you do.

Apparently BoB's not dead.

Let's hope they rise from the ashes; and under the protection of Texas Law, become the new entity to hate (though I'm more likely to laugh).

That would require the space being worth something to them.

Half of the alliances involved neither want or need the space, and realize the same vulnerabilities they are exploiting would make it a tenuous proposition at best to try and hold it. Squabbling over extra work? Naw, they are smarter than that.

The other alliances involved could very well actually take, hold, and colonize the space. The south and the south west show that sov space can be cultivated and useful to alliances of the right size and type, and those with the right mindset. Just that pseudo renter/buffer alliances don't really stand a chance succeeding at sov, and this is a good thing. These alliances don't need that much space to make magic happen, so again, infighting is not something I'd expect. There's a whole lot of space available soon.

They took 3 systems and suddenly Goons are dying. Seriously people, I know you're better than that.

It will be fine. There will always be someone to hate in Eve, you just have to open your heart.

Seriously. I was around in 2011, when PL teamed up with basically all of nullsec, killed the Northern Coalition, and took essentially all Goon space except Deklein.

Goonswarm had its space back and then some a few weeks later, and the alliance that tried to kill them was shattered.

The political and military realities of then and now are quite different.

Defending multiple fronts from multiple attackers was trivial in the old system, where coalition meant everything and distance meant nothing. Now we see what happens when it is both a viable tactic, and there is the collective will to enact it.

Exciting times if it holds.

I don't see how "annoy them to death" could possibly work against goons, considering they would be doing the exact same thing to anyone who tried to move in, and no one does "annoy them to death" as well as they do.

I'm just going to look forward to Harry Forever posting videos of his sniping stragglers from the fleets with his SB.

C'mon it is fun to watch at least.

So they keep Dek. That's fine, I don't think people really have a problem, conceptually or philosophically, with a strong alliance holding a region they actively use. Freeing the rest of the North from the tyranny of coalitions, a mechanic and a concept that has long outlived its place and use, and seeing what can actually grow there...that's something to be lauded and good for the game in general.
