Last weekend, the Gallente Militia managed to secure the warzone completely after taking the last standing system (Ladistier).
Fireworks were seen after capturing the last hub, and for a few hours, their victory was absolute as they held control over each and every one of the 101 systems. The feat is no trivial task, and CCP Fozzie commented on his Twitter that free high fives would be granted at the Fanfest.
And while the Caldari quickly got back to work and retook Okagaiken, which is not surprising, it is perhaps more curious to learn that Ev0ke (who, as you might remember, sold their sovereignty to the CFC for 250 billions, moved to Syndicate/Outer Ring and has been bleeding members and corps as of lately) has been backing them up.
Ev0ke’s participation is not completely clear, though. It is to be defined whether they will stay for long, or if they are intending to play it like Nulli Secunda.
What seems to be clear is that perhaps they threw themselves into this before having mastered the basics of Factional Warfare. There have been reports of Ev0ke pilots hauling ships to Melmaniel, only to join the militia the next day…and finding themselves logically unable to dock in the Gallente stations there.
ev0ke.intel: totaly new thingy for our peeps
ev0ke.intel: most of them have hard to learn =D
Ev0ke is now down to 11 corps (from 22 corps in September) and already counts with less than 800 pilots. Life in Syndicate and the Outer Ring has taken its toll on Ev0ke’s ranks and who knows if this change will be for good. Whatever ISK they can make from it will be, of course.
