I asked my old Thorn buddy alphastarpilot to give me a quick assessment of the -A- outlook in wake of current events, he also mentioned how 49-U6U, -A-’s current staging system is being contested at this moment by the Pandemic Legion/TEST led Honey Badgers.
Battle Report: 4-07MU SBU’d by The Initiative + Honey Badgers – Video & Recording.
While many corps are evaccing and leaving ROL, check DOT for the slope. Word on the street most english speaking corps in ROL are joining HBC as a new alliance or as corps joining current aliances in the HBC. While the old guard russians join the rest of SoCO. A Jagged Alliance spy managed to drop ROLs sov in AZN, their home system. Which then Pandemic Legion quickly grabbed. PL now owns the station and system. There are considerable ROL and Kadeshi assets are trapped there. Firesailing has already begun. (For example, som TRIBE guy bought a fully faction webbed Huginn in AZN for 2 mill! Some ROL guy forgot the 0′s.) RED.Overlord pretty much are abandoning Paragon Soul to HBC. We are just grinding it down and Zombie bros will take most of the region and neo moons.
Meanwhile in 4-07MU
INIT. SBUed 4-07MU, Against All Authorities current station system. Makalu Zarya formed tengu fleet to fight, INIT. along a sizable HBC fleet baited him onto the 49-U6U gate in bubbles, then the HBC jumped Foxcats and Drakes in. Makalu Zarya burned out of range with his fleet and docked up. Station and I-HUB are in reinforced. According to our HBC battle reporter, Makalu Zarya issued all SoCo PVP assets to be evaced back to GE-8JV (Catch), and all non PVP assets to LGK-VP (Stain).
We are no just disrupting their moving, more fights to come.
Here is the video of the engagement:
And -A- comms after they were ordered to dock up:
