My Name is Hallan Turrek, and this is Eve News Now.
In Geminate: The Northern Coalition took down a RaidenDot tech tower in the system of SR-KBB. The running battle took an odd turn after the Northern Coalition fleet, slightly weakened by Black Legion attacks, was then attacked by Pandemic Legion in the tower’s final moments. After the Northen Coaltion was forced off the field, the RaidenDot forces then re anchored a new tower.
In Geminate and Vale of the Silent: The Drone Russian attack goes on unabated, with nearly every Technetium moon in the region under the control of allied forces. The real story is the newer incursion into Vale of the Silent. Geminate being a border region, it’s defense is important, but not a threat to the greater NC. An invasion into Vale, such as the one in F-D49D is a major threat, and if not met with adequate force, could be the domino that ends this coalition.
In Vale of the Silent: Speaking of dominoes, a director level renegade has stolen over 600 billion in isk and assets from Majesta Empire. This comes at a vitally important time as the Drone Russians and their allies have begun to invade this region where Majesta lives. The renegade director was a member of Reliables Inc, and while some of his theft certainly hit the alliance hard, the corporation may find it’s some time before they recover.
In Pure Blind: In a region now worth significantly less than two weeks ago, NCDOT and Evoke are still “fighting” with the Deklein Coalition and the NC. Since no space has changed hands, and very few moons have been taken for any extended period of time, one has to wonder if NCDOT and Evoke are finding the fights worth their time.
In Fountain: A small shakeup in the region, which only recently has come under the complete purview of Test Alliance Please Ignore. While Fatal Ascension had a leadership shift, Apotheosis of Virtue has lost all three systems it held in the region. Test demanded the change based on a reported lack of participation on the part of AOV. The systems are no in the hands of Test Alliance.
In Vale of the Silent: A Majesta Titan was downed in the system of 0-LR1H. The titan was not caught in a battle or even ratting. He was simply attempting to jump between locations using an intermediate cyno. One begins to wonder how he was caught so quickly without inside intel or a major mistake by the pilot. At least I’m wondering.
