The new is out, Gypsy Band reset (once again) SOLAR FLEET – relations are now degraded to a NIP status.
Gypsy Band Reset on SOLAR FLEET
We spoke to Blaster Worm from Gypsy Band who explained that a reset had been made already a month ago, but blue standings were reestablished when the Geminate campaign kicked in for SOLAR FLEET. The campaign against NCDOT and Ev0ke did not came without protest from Gypsy Band leadership, but the last straw seemed to be the fact that recently SOLAR FLEET has been cooperating with the Deklein Coalition and the attack on NCDOT lands in Geminate did not sit well with Gypsy Band leadership.
So the NIP is on, and the relations remain quite tense with MACTEP (SOLAR leader) being thrown out of his comfort zone by the reset.
Gypsy Band’s new (and reduced) blues list is in place. The blue list includes the DOT Bros – namely NCDOT, Black Legion., NULLI, IRC and the other usual suspects.
In order to understand Gypsy Band’s disgust toward GoonSwarm Federation, here is a exclusive translation of the original post in “Reality Distortion Fields” on this, you don’t need a bitter vet badge to simply google and cross check facts.
The DOT Brothers gain a wildcard here, although you won’t find joint ops between BAND and DOT Bros. – having them harassing the same enemies is certainly a good thing for them.
As for the Deklein Coalition’s outlook, unless something truly extraordinary happens the outlook will be the same – the slow grind in Tribute (five weeks already) with massive numbers will keep going and although station systems have proven to be a tough nut to crack, the numbers game will finally impose itself.
One fact which had been overlooked by Blaster Worm’s post is how CCP Games had during the last year systematically disarmed and nerfed which ever tool a small corp could use to combat massive numbers. Whether it be the super-capital’s nerf or the tracking on Titans just to cite a few examples, smaller alliances were deprived from tools to actually have a chance against the blob. On the other hand, it is doubtful if much needed nerfs for cheap and overpowered ships (for their class) like Drakes and Maelstroms (which deployment is limited more on ally logistics stress than anything else) will ever see the light of the day. I find hard to foresee CCP Games to make any move which would affect 40,000 of their paying customers, even if it goes in detriment of Eve Online as a game.
You can take whole EVE with a lot of bad players - The Mittani
This statement couldn’t be more true as a testament of how EVE Online gameplay has been degraded to having a thousand players pressing the F1 key and as long CCP Games maintains a complacent view on their “favorite sons”, this current state of corroded gameplay will remain.
