    Another pretty solid fight was just had in the ongoing content we've been enjoying in Vale of late.

    Since my last update, the vast array of enemies assembled against us has grown, in addition to Rote + Unspoken + No Visual + assorted randoms, we now have:
    -JAG (Just a Game)
    -NSH (Nullsechnaya)

    What this has meant for us, is that we've recognized that there really isn't anything we can do solely on our own against people so dedicated to blueing up entire regions + blobbing as best they can. So, we've officially blued up with our neighbors and good friends ECHO + Divinity to officially form the DEF Coalition.

    Over the last week, we've had a lot of back and forth in what I like to refer to as Content Corner, aka the DMXN-3 pocket:

    http://evemaps.dotlan.net/map/Vale_of_the_Silent/DMXN-3

    Since my last post we've lost a sum total of 0 systems, with lots of ADM 0 pingpong back and forth (week ago map below):

    http://evemaps.dotlan.net/map/Vale_o...N-3/2019-08-17

    Content has been quite excellent, with lots of random skirmishing and tristan producers across the cluster being singlehandedly kept in business by our army of entosis alts (WTB max research Tristan BPO btw). https://zkillboard.com/constellation...sses/ship/593/

    Tonight, we were blessed with two timers that mattered - one involving pushing a hostile structure in Content Corner into it's next cycle (they formed something like 65 dudes from all of the above listed alliances and we just shrugged since it was a shield timer anyways), and a content raitaru in another system of ours, ZA0L-.

    This one has a bit of a history - when they initially dropped it, I'm told we had lower numbers (I had already gone to sleep to catch up after a hard week of work), so we tried to knock it out with a few RR ships (we love those). Unfortunately for us, hostiles showed up with 30 people comprised of as many different corps/alliances as we had in fleet and promptly murderzoned all but one of our people: https://zkillboard.com/br/111067/

    Tonight, we had prepared for the final onlining timer to avoid additional citadel cancer, and had a little less than 30ish people of our own(FE + ECHO + alts and a friend), in another one of my favorite comps (you guessed it) - Lotus Gilas. \o/

    We're not entirely certain if hostiles forgot about it or what, but NSH had a small gang out reinforcing random ADM 0 systems in Content Corner while we began bashing it. It looks like someone eventually picked up the batphone, because a few ceptors pinged around and with something like 5% structure to go, they + rote + unspoken + a token NV guy all began burning over with some random nano stuff. Our elite waterboarding crew (you may remember them from last AAR) successfully delayed them long enough for us to finish off the raitaru. Additionally, they successfully delayed their scimi(s) (I only ever saw one from memory, but I'm told there were more) from landing at the same time as their kitchen sink. I am told that "Guantanamo Medals" have been handed out to these valiant pilots in commemoration of their most honorable deeds.

    Despite not having their scimi(s), they kept warping things in as we manuevered to engage, very quickly nuking an oracle + 2b worth of lokis, including one piloted by a character we usually expect to be a loot pinata from earlier fights in Content Corner (https://zkillboard.com/kill/78575134/ https://zkillboard.com/kill/78575136/).

    Midway through hazing random tackle an attempt was made at firewalling our drones, which resulted in us....swapping targets and killing 2 more oracles in short order. A further domi was destroyed as random ships including their scimi warped off in varying amounts of low HP along with the remnants of their fleet.

    We spent the next few minutes chasing down a few more ships including their curse, some ospreys, and an Oracle who forgot how to use log off safely (or just assumed we wouldn't find him?). Content has been great so far, and we just hope that at some point our hostiles will stop blueing more people so we can get more fights for both sides.

    Final BR for tonight: https://br.evetools.org/related/30000304/201908250400

    We were midway through some objectives. Hopefully you guys were just roaming and not batphoned alliance #12 or #13 (I've lost count). GF, and nice fleet.

    I was pretty scared - that mach is pretty old and uh.....pretty pricey. I might want to downgrade it a bit, I think it might've been worth almost all of our losses on its own :P

    Quick post since I'm at work currently. We've been holding steady and enjoying content as it comes, and ignoring it when it's not (I've lost track of how many batphones a certain "elite small gang" pvp group has brought). We've been steadily removing their pet's structures (https://zkillboard.com/kill/78968040/) + the odd RR (who noone seems to like) structures from our space.

    The latest group to throw their hat in the ring for Vale sov is Theran alliance. We're more than happy to have more independent groups taking sov in vale, more content and more neighbors means a livelier neighborhood and more fun for everyone.

    Unfortunately for them, these guys, rather than taking one of the empty pockets decided to run in and start pushing one of our pockets. http://evemaps.dotlan.net/map/Vale_o...N-3#vulnerable

    They led with the usual rhetoric that they're gonna evict us, and that noone likes us, blah blah blah.

    Their opening strike was reinforcing every system in ibises, and dropping 6 citadels. We spent the weekend running around, helicopter dicking every structure they put down except one, which got interrupted by the fight that armyofme's post above mentions. We also had a project gungnir group show up in stratioses that dropped our bashing fleet and quickly died. I(https://br.inyour.space/?s=235&b=8786580&e=90&t=uv).

    Last night, the last citadel standing was successfully pushed into final timer by us - and we were pleasantly surprised to get a good fight without the expected massive batphone. They formed, and did so in the usual muninn fleet that everyone seems to like these days. We were in gilas, and had a pretty solid brawl over the structure: https://br.inyour.space/?s=236&b=8788380&e=90&t=b

    While it didn't go super well for them, we were all impressed with their fighting spirit, and willingness to fight on their own. Assuming they abandon their plans to touch our sov and choose a different pocket, this should bode well for their future in Vale.

    GF and props to Theran for bringing the fight and potentially another group to Vale. We look forward to the next timer.

    Counterpoints. Lord's smugs about beating up on idiots, ignoring the fact that any standup fight has been entirely one sided because their coordination, resilience and depth of skill is lacking.

    The desperation on comms and in pings is great though.

    Lords post is actual content to read through though with some (however propaganda edited it is) narrative. I don't play that much and am not involved with sov at all, but enjoy some structured content to read about now and again. In an already dead forum it is a welcome respite from nothing and/or shitposting.

    Agreed, its sad to see the state of the EVE section these days, and I'm glad every time I read some actual content here.
    This game needs more of the old timers to come back and actually play the game.

    I sort of agree, but I also don't think that propaganda edited narrative is meaningfully different than shitposting. "Yay the Ministry of Truth is using MY television now too!" is not a happy image.

    Like Army said, what we really need is the old community back to keep this section alive so that there would at least be competing narratives, but that gets less and less likely as the years wear on and more of us get too old to see our keyboards / take redpills / win EVE.

    There's a big difference between propaganda and things being told from your POV.

    Let's use something we can all agree is a shitpoast, your side's low effort word vomit from yesterday, based on this fight that actually happened:

    I can keep going Cody, I'm sure they'd all love to know what you think of them. Here are some funny highlights:

    FE is hated because they are "so good" not because of these delusional smug posts when they lose and manage to insult everyone.
    FE is hated because "we don't call 5-6 alliances" no they call literally 15 according to the BR.
    He is referring to [FE] as "they" in the third person in our chat, not telling me he's even in FE until the end but later pretends to be so "betrayed" for me "personally attacking him".
    They love to spam this one BR as a testament to their greatness and manly prowess because they killed 1-2 dreads from NC with 2x the numbers and 10x the caps. l33t
    He made no offer of help ever. Only an insulting remark of "renting" or sh*t talking the other local alliances telling me to go fight them. feel free to post a screen cap of that supposed "offer"
    I don't know I can't even read this garbage, I'm sorry. When everyone told me about their reddit posts, I didn't believe it. This exceeded my expectations. lol

    [insert various chatlogs with random comments such as "LOL"]


    This guy starts off with an insult, then lists out several "fake facts."
    1: "We're hated." Noone seems to hate us except Unspoken & Friends who are generally known for their smacktalk, salt, and abysmal posting with the likes of Wallymarts. The same could be said of Unspoken, Rote, NSH, Theran, etc etc if we were going for propaganda - "Everyone hates Unspoken, Rote, and NSH. Theran are so hated they got kicked out of the 2 most useless coalitions in the game who will take ANYONE."

    2: We call "literally 15" alliances. The BR is right above this and shows us with a total of 8 different groups. There are the 3 main local groups of Forsaken Empire, Reverberation Project, and Divinity, comprising 60 people. Of the other groups, MCAV is literally one person who's an old friend of mine, Test is also 2 people who are old friends a friend of mine, you will rarely if ever see more than the same 2 people +/- alts in our fleets from test.

    This leaves Reckless with 3, Etsala with 6, and Kansas City Shuffle with 9. I'm not entirely certain who each of these groups are (I wasn't present for this fight personally), but I'm fairly certaon at least 1 or more are courtesy of apollo, a good friend of Wind and myself from NC & Vegas last year. Combined, we had 18 total people who could be considered a "batphone," 21 if you count the 3 individuals who fly with us. This would be 21/81, or ~26% of our entire fleet.

    Meanwhile, across from us we have 7 different groups. 4 of them (Theran, Rote, Unspoken, and NV) could be considered to be "Locals," comprising a grand total of 54 pilots. Of the others, we have United Federation of Conifers who came from 2-3 regions over (Fade/PB) with 20 people, Wardec Mechanics (No Vacancy, a wormhole group) bringing 13 additional pilots, and most importantly Pandemic Legion(all the way from Malpais or w.e Panfam are setup), comprised of 50 pilots.

    Of the 137 people who fought us, only 54 were locals. This means that ~61% of the people we were fighting were batphoned / are not local groups.

    Definition of a fact:
    a thing that is known or proved to be true

    An example of a fact: Unspoken/Rote & co refuse to fight us (they didn't form for our fort last night, and have never taken a fight where they did not hold a large numerical superiority) with roughly even numbers or a disadvantage, however slight (60 vs 54), so they batphone over 60% of their fleet and still lose more isk(~22b vs ~27b) than us while we are fighting 60% outnumbered.

    Definition of a narrative:
    a spoken or written account of connected events; a story.

    An example of a narrative: Unspoken/Rote & co, after their early failures and unsubstantiated smacktalk, are furious at their loss of face and are doing anything they can in an attempt to not get repeatedly wiped, as has happened in every single engagement with even numbers or close to it.

    Also, bringing RL and personal insults against someone over a video game is disturbing and pathetic. I hope those people get some help.
    It's 2019. Get a grip.
