War with Northern Coalition dot

Well that didn’t take long. Delve is over and war has begun with NC.

I tried to read The Mittani’s post on it and failed… maybe that attempt at motivational speeches works on some people. What motivates me? honesty. if you tell me “I’ve got no good reason, let’s just go shoot xyz alliance” I’ll be there, guns blazing. turns out there is actually a reason for this one.

Long story short: Technetium is being nerfed by CCP. Northern Coalition wants to go out with a fight.

This rings bells – back in 2009 when the Northern Coalition was actually a coalition of alliances, and held all the space that goons and friends now holds, (I was in Mostly harmless and we held Pure Blind, Fade and Cloud Ring.) CCP changed sov fundamentally. The Dominion patch moved from simply the alliance with the most pos’s wins, to actually being able to upgrade systems and having the mechanics of Territorial control units and blockade units and infrastructure hubs. At this point Pandemic legion held all of fountain and they came to give us a fight before dominion hit
(see http://evemonkey.wordpress.com/2009/09/22/news_from_the_north/ and other posts from around that time).

Now, the same thing is happening again. Tech will be nerfed, from Executive Outcome’s perspective our 30bill per month sov costs will no longer be funded by the high price of technetium. We’re going to actually have to work to pay our sov costs or contract our sov. The alliance that is called Northern Coalition seems to want to have one last war before they contract or go back to wherever they intend to go. fair enough. let’s pew pew bitches.

At least our staging system is a pretty one

Executive outcomes is unfortunately tied to both TEST and goons. so I have ships and jump clones in cloud ring, Delve and Deklein, our new staging region for the war in Tribute. Happily I already have all the necessary tactical bookmarks for deklein. This was my very first nullsec region when I was part of Defi4nt alliance for a couple of months prior to moving to MH.

So Sunday night there was an op that I didn’t get in on due to the time, but Monday night I had the priviledge of knocking out the SBU’s attached to KQK1-2, one of the systems held by The Ancient Gaming Noob‘s alliance. One of these days I’ll fulfill a years long goal of actually flying along side him :-)

Nothing much to tell on this particular occasion. Even though we were in hot-drop range of NC. they failed to show and we killed the SBU’s and went home.

an SBU being assploded, here’s one: clicky

Yes, I brought a drake, I haven’t yet brought my HICtor. usually these ops will be late at night so I think I don’t want to risk making a stupid decision while tired so I brought also my raptor and a stealth bomber and bought two drakes at our staging system.

    No particular reason to fight? Let me give you a reason to kill every single one damn failures of NC.

    MATE!!!

    his is the first war which I’m actually sad to miss. That mate thing made the death of NC. a personal motivation. Too bad that
    1: I’m still 2 weeks from Minmatar cruiser 5, the last skill before logi
    2: I’m not in CFC/HB or even RvB

    By the way if they show up in a fight (and die badly) troll them in local by calling them mates.

    Oh wait, I can participate in killing those damn “mates”. Check your wallet please and forward the sum to the ship reimbursement wallet.

      Thank you very much Gevlon – We were just talking about the alliance reimbursement plan at a corp meeting on Sunday night, we’re looking at expanding it from just doctrine ships to Recon ships also – this will go a part of the way to helping that :-)
      I’ll post a screenshot of the isk going into the alliance wallet tonight.
