    Re: Providence

    It nicely coincides with the downfall of the NC, the old Proviblock alliances who moved up north might come back down to help CVA rebuild Providence.

    I never liked Providence for small gang/solo roaming at any time, but back when CVA was still there, I enjoyed them doing 50vs50s daily. They lost 9/10 fights, but they just kept coming for the gfs. I liked that.

    Re: Providence

    Might take a year+ to rebuild and they will probably be over-farmed preemptively by local alliances and teary eyed veterans who remember what a great and fantastic region it was for pvp, I really, really hope Providence becomes even a shadow of its former self because if it does I might actually undock.

    I think CVA and the NC are two different kettle of fish. CVA would fight almost all the time, and although they have been responsible for some completely ridicilious things like camping in a rifter for 3 hours with 20+ guys and of course the 300+ man sniper bs camp with 12 large t2 bubbles on the misaba gate when they found out that 60 SHC caracals were coming, they would always fight when they had even odds for 50+ people fights. In Contrast, I think the north is a lot less willing to engage your average small gang than CVA and their protectorate was.

    What made Providence great was that it was the one place in eve where you're guranteed to be sent home in a pod or have a ton of killmails within 30 minutes. Even if you don't get a fight directly the region was so busy and every system felt different, full of life, which is hardly something I'd use to describe the majority of current 0.0, and you'd get targets just by sitting on a gate in 9uy. I had different notes about different systems and the different residents there, compared to almost every other alliances space where I felt like the different systems were just another randomly generated string of numbers and letters.

    Maybe I'm just a bitter vet with nostalga but thats my take on it. I've never had as much fun in eve since providence vanished. And had the most fun in the game being part of genos in sev3rance when the southern coalition was invading, and just doing ridicilious stuff like winning against 60+ guys with 8 people since they assumed we were terrible since we were in sev3rance and just completely messed up.

    not so much a move to come back as it is a result of the devaluation of providence as a region with the true-sec patch.

    Wasn't that the whole point of Zulu's change? Provi was p. ordinary, then Ev0ke twigged that 'all nullsec is awesome sanctum nullsec' and moved in.

    Now it's back to being a ghetto so CVA can feel at home again.

    Re: Providence

    First of all we really love cva and would like nothing more for them to retake all of providence.
    Second we do not hot drop all the time, the last time we hot dropped them they were chasing our t1 cruiser gang with a heavy BC and BS gang, they were totally asking for it.

    this is why supercaps ruin eve.

    you moan at them for chasing your cruiser gang in bs, so you respond with a supercap or a super fleet?

    kettle say hello to the pot

    Re: Providence

    I regained access to TheCitadel with an altchar recently and I have to say, it reads very much like old times. I could spend an entire evening reading the channel and giggle constantly, even if there are just about 270 dudes in it.

    Therefore I really hope CVA announces "Project Deliverance Redemption" or somesuch and takes it all back.

    It would even be good for newer players. For me Providence were my first steps into 0.0 an I wouldn't have done it without CVA at this time. The amount of rats killed by me in DNR-7M buggles the mind in hindsight. Enough derping.

    Who ships up in T1 cruisers and runs from anything?

    T1 Cruiser fleet = 300 Spartans, every time.
