So... You don't want your line members to panic bc you are going to keep fighting the war but if the enemy wants to take all the stuff you're fighting over then that's cool... Ok, Nulli, good talk.The next few weeks will be pretty brutal, but if they honestly want to try grinding 13 regions and 200+ stations while we hotdrop every fucker that moves, be my guest.
EDIT: I REALLY hope this isn't the beginning of the end of the war..
Can we have more gifs with labels please? I need more labelled gifs.

I, for one, hope it's fake. But I've a strong feeling that it's not...
That said, my corp, my fucking corp, took a hit of around 1.5 trillion isk. My alliance as a whole took a shot to the nuts somewhere in the neighborhood of 4.5 trillion isk. Those numbers are beyond staggering in nature and dwarf the amount of money more than half the alliances in EVE will ever see, much less recover from.
And right now thats what needs to happen.
I need my people to get a chance to recover.
I've been in PL for a really long time, and all the welps we've had have been chump change to the actual members in comparison to the losses we're facing here, and coupled with BL knocking on the door in Drones near constantly I made a judgement call to get my people whole.
I eat a shit sandwich, I pull back, I get my people right, I get my house right, and I get my cap fleet back in order, and then we see where life is and how things are going.
I don't expect people to like my call, and personally your opinions on my call mean less than fuck all, what matters to me is how my people are doing and dealing with things and how the future of the alliance looks, and the best way for me to do that is to back our shit up to our house and have some Legion on Legion combat up north.
Anything outside of how the alliance recovers is irrelevant to me
Meh, I am not judging your motives or decisions at all. Obviously our interests collide, and I'd never think that PL would make decisions based on my whims.
If anything I can only say I respect your way of both making a tough call and plainly stating it. Маybe the 'plainly stating it' part above all, given the amount of bullshit people are in habit of feeding one another.
I hope that we'll come up north knocking on your door, but i am not entirely sure that'll happen.

Consolidating into a small region to recover makes complete sense but presents a solid target as well. It works on the premise that none of your considerably larger (former) enemies consider you enough of a threat in the long run to try and use this opportunity to really hit it home. That being said, the void you're going through this move should keep the larger players busy long enough for you to recuperate. Also, somehow none of the people that have a big enough super presence to overwhelm you individually seem to hate your guts enough.

Maybe telling CFC how to counter N3PL main tactic was a bad idea
The only thing that i allow myself to be smug about, is that I've *predicted* this like a couple of months back, way before the NAP with Goons was published. A mighty prediction, I know... But i always admit that i am petty.
