That tl;dr is really, really selling it short. I'll give it a shot.Originally Posted by Bartholomeus Crane
Napoleon, Alexander and other famous figures in the history of warfare only matter in the context of having new strategies to play, angles to master, and techniques to polish to a mirror shine. Eve Online doesn't have those, because the problems of game design and industrial abundance have turned Eve Online's sovereignty warfare into the spacehip equivalent of Trench Warfare. These battles aren't won by strategically breaking the other side's armies, they're won by making the other side give up. This reality elevates the value of propaganda pieces like Mittani; tactically, these personalities are meaningless. Strategically, they are rallying points for other people to browbeat each other over. Mittens is a drummer boy, not Sun Tzu.
