So hell broke lose in the Southern Coalition yesterday and right now is everybody for themselves.
Chaos and Betrayal in RED.Overlord – Capital Solar System Sov Dropped.
It can be summed up pretty much to the leader of The Jagged Alliance “Xfile 666″ convinced a corp of ROL (Red Overlord) To defect ROL, and drop the Territorial Claim Unit in their capital system of AZN-D2 in Feythabolis. Being the historical capital of RED.Overlord, a system that also harbors the majority of the PVP assets of the active RED.Overlord corporations.
TEST and Pandemic Legion leadership promptly realized the importance of this opportunity and put in motion all the necessary gears in motion to get Xfile 666 to switch sides and made all the necessary arrangements to organize the OP and schedule the proper timing for the Sov Drop.
Lukejb CEO of Total Annihilation. executed the Sov Drop: at the command given by Shadoo, off-lined the TCU. Immediately the Pandemic Legion super-capital fleet jumped into the System and started grinding the Station. Moments later, Total Annihilation left ROL Alliance and applied for The Jagged Alliance.
On same moment other corp from ROL who made other agreements with HBC, started to defect; corporations like Skulldogs and Sacred Templars. A new alliances is rumored to be formed which will harbor some of these defecting corporations with TEST/Pandemic Legion friendly standings.
As a result ROL, the only alliance truly willing to give a fight to TEST/PL has been greatly weakened, Against All Authorities inability to help allies became more apparent than ever given the little pressure put into Paragon Soul and the lack of support from -A-.
As a result The Pandemic Legion / TEST Jabber signaled the end of the war:
As you may have seen on Kugutsumen, D/Q/PB/F war is over. -A- has issued full redeployment of all forces to GE- in an attempt to focus on an easier front in Detorid/Curse/Creek against INK/Why/Gypsy/residents. They do this with FULL knowledge that by doing so, they will effectively be fucking over ROL is Paragon Soul. As response, ROL RUS leadership has said “fuck with PS – didn’t want it anyway”.
We don’t like to be handed regions willy nilly. We would have appriciated a bit more of a fight, to be honest. Thus, Operation Rollover was set in motion 5 minutes ago.
Phase 1 — The Jagged Alliance (TJA) operatives executed order 66 on AZN sovereignity. AZN, for those who do not know, is ROL capital. Their K-6, VFK, etc. The sovereignity of the system is *GONE*. Station is conquerable with no RF timer. No JB/jammers can be onlined.
We will burn AZN to the ground until ROL RUS comes out and fights us. Next 8h is their chance to save the station by destroying our onlining TCUs, -A- has CTAs they can direct to us and bring along their new found SOLAR buddies. Now we will see if -A- tosses ROL to the side like a used condom or if they will step up and defend their oldest ally.
If they don’t, well… thank you in advance for firesales. Hope they learn that no one runs away from fights with HBC without extra pressure being applied.
FLEETS NOW UP, AND WILL GO ON BEING UP ALL THOUGHOUT THE NIGHT. BURN BABY, BURN.

And so the war in the South, if there was ever one could be call to an end.
The information above is the one I managed to confirm with Montolio and my ROL contacts, what follows is the raw intel from my dropbox, another perspective nevertheless.
woohoooo ROL are about to fail, corps will flip tonite 5pm..!
starting with Sacred Templars others to follow i am sure.
STEMP Left ROL,
TAN dropped AZN-D2 Sov, then got kicked from ROL, 5 minutes later PL dropped 18+NYX onto AZN station and popped it.
TCU then went online..
We told you ROL would fail, -A- shoulda helped them when asked…. this is what happens when u try to shit on your friends after they helped you for so long..
Yeah….. Thanks -A-
p.s COCAS and SDOGS are leaving within 24 hours for pastures new.
AZN falls with a whimper
The 8th of October saw the defection of several corps within ROL and the flipping of the ROL capital AZN to Pandemic Legion as Fethabolis went into confusion.
Early evening around 18.00 eve time we were forming a bomber gang for some ops and headed towards AZN to group up. Arriving through the JB we noticed moments later that it went offline and the Station several seconds later showed sov was lost.
Thinking it may have been a glitch we continued apprehensively to form up but that old sixth sense started to ring bells with many in fleet as intel came in about red Cap fleets and incoming hostiles.
Sector Holders Total Annihilation TAN flipped the station in AZN to PL. Sacred Templars STEMP and SKULLDOGS, left ROL and the blue awox’ing began
Clone change messages started to come in for the corp as Med clones were kicked from AZN showing PL now held the station and red numbers started to rise across the region.
Skulldogs, Sacred Templars and Total Annihilation dropped sov in seven systems across Fethabolis and another in Paragon Soul, Jumpbridges went offline due to the sov changes and the whole network moved into chaos
As it seems half of eve is now set against –A-, ROL and its allies the cap fleet monster moves effortlessly across Feth and its surrounding areas assisted with excellent diplomatic skills and enticements to persuade aggrieved corps to become turncoats, take advantage of the situation and hammer the perceived final nails into the –A- coffin.
Having been on the end of many moves in the past through Providence, Tribute, Vale of the Silent and now Fethabolis, this is now life in EVE,
Sov changes, allegiances switch, backstabbing begins and grudges are stored for later resurrection. It all plays out in the rich tapestry that is EVE and the longer you are in it the more the cycle comes around.
Beware the friends you have today as you will be facing them across the field of battle in a few months time. Blues will be reset for “good fights” and the cycle starts again….. happy days
