We received news that Ev0ke, the old German powerhouse is attempting to come back to their former glory. Seppel da’finni announced this in the German sub-forum, including a video that invited all German corps and players to band together and achieve a German face once again in Eve online.
The Video

Additionally Wildcard of Stellvipers reopened Youwhat Aliance and already gathered some corps together.

Leaders of Cataclysm, Ev0ke and Youwhat are sitting together in a well-known “ringgathering” channel and are discussing the way forward for the German community. Seppel leader is launching a massive campaign on German forums requesting to forget about past frictions and instead band together.

It appears to me that Ev0ke and Co. are trying to pull a Triumvirate, whom until now had been very successful following their reincarnation. Ev0ke’s target is still unknown but rumors are going around that their focus will be to aggress Goon pets and attempt to harass them as much as possible.

So far Ev0ke has already taken a reasonable amount of R64s in Syndicate and surrounding regions. Executive outcomes and FA tried to stop them in March/ April, but were unable to hold them back. Ever Since, the Germans have been succeeding in taking more and more GSF assets in the regions, while Exe and FA aborted the campaign due to heavy losses.

To me this is a very interesting event because the Germans have and will always be one of the more dangerous kind within Eve online, using both efficiency and patience to their advantage.

  • what

    FA never had a campaign against EVOKE. get your shit right.

    • Deltaguy

      yeh that would mean fa had to deploy somewhere and stop ratting like the shitlords they are.

      • well how else are we going to pay to play in supers online?

        • Renters? Don’t tell me that the PBLRD fund only goes to goons?

          • everyone knows we rmt all that isk. duh!

          • Who wouldn’t ?!
            A man gotta eat!

          • Ciaphas Cyne

            couldnt afford much of a diet on eve rmt

          • A man with a gut like that ain’t off the RMT money.

    • smug

      so they just gave the moons for free? very kind…

    • anon

      FA indignation best indignation

    • yeah, I don’t remember FA ever deploying to take on Evoke.

    • novoke

      FA could never have a campaign against Evoke. They’re too fucking sucky.

    • DGMT Vet

      FA did campaign against Evoke, in 2010 when FCON brought them up to Pure Blind to assist against EVOKE and Cry Havoc to clear them out of Pure Blind

  • dang

    FA aborted due to heavy losses? Pure lie, fantasy or just to much drugs?

    • Dumbledore

      All lies, because we all know that you can’t lose fights if you don’t undock.

      • asdf

        It’s true, just ask -A-, they have the most experience with not undocking in all of Eve.

    • Razor Bro

      This is not hard at all to believe. FA has been told many times to be more like Razor but they wont listen.

  • Hobo

    Is Ethan Hawk the new David Hasselhoff?

    Also, way to waste the first 30 secs of the video on a sub-par splash screen.

  • Irya

    and they will end up In FW … again and get smashed again .. and reborn Again .. 🙁

  • Basil

    Don’t mention the war!

  • Meow.

    Only clicked the vid cause I saw Tortuga Lacrimosa.

  • Would love to see some of the *OLD* power-houses return to their former glory… G, ASCN, IRON, maybe even BOB (because, let’s face it, grrr goons 🙂 )

    • Jarhead

      GRR Goons is so passé. GRR Gevlon is the new thing

      • Dumbledore

    • LSM

      ASCN will never return. Why? I am part of one of the main corps that formed it… and… it will never come back. I would like to see it come back, but the personnel and drive to is not there anymore…

  • For some reason, large numbers of Germans are terrifying to me….

    • Panzerfraust

      Polish or French?

      • actually i am a second generation German American.

    • Bantor

      It’s because of WW2, get it?

      • SFC

        Yea lol

      • Dumbledore

        Ah so that’s what it was about. “goodfights”.

  • stefffff

    Sorry but a noob question…. who is/was evoke?

    • Dumbledore

      Not sure if trolling, but they’re one of the more legendary older groups who were ahead many others (not all, though) in using unified fleet doctrines and executing them very effectively. They had a formidable super and titan fleet early in the game, and they were good at using them. And they did everything with German precision.

      In the Tribute war they fought alongside NCdot and some others in a two front war, but suddenly turned their coats, betrayed their allies, sold all their space to CFC, and moved to Cloud Ring where old alliances go to dwindle and die. Maybe they’re planning to resurrect and apply to join the CFC now?

    • They were an alliance of German speakers, they were famous for holding cloud ring with the held of NCdot (before they got big) from the forces of the much smaller CFC. They were also a major playing in the downfall of the old Northern Coalition. They were a fairly skilled supers heavy alliance. I think they had some sort of falling out with their allies themed everyone parted ways.

    • Razor Dude

      They are FAs mortal enemy. Its easy to go for the CFCs weaker alliances.

  • Gort

    I remember fighting these guys when I was in Imperial Order/AAA, they hit fast & hard, good old days

  • herman the german

    The discussion of Ev0ke comming back to former glory came up with Cataclysm Enterprises looking for a new alliance after leaving MoA a few weeks ago. Seppel, ethan or whoever this guys name is is trying to get CE to it´s former strength by mass recruiting carebears and 1-2 bittervets into his corp. While he is beeing very noisy doing that there is no reason to believe he will be successful since the ppl who made this corp into what it was in the “good old evoke days” are gone. There are no FCs, supers or even more than 3-4 capitalpilots left within this corp. So any alliance recruiting this corp might gain some subcap pilots. Nothing more.
    On the other side Ev0ke is still in a zombie like state and is still lead by the same old bitchy leadership guys everyone learns to mistrust over the years. And Youwhat…sorry who?
    There are many german players and good pvpers in eve and if they can regroup they might have a small impact again like they did in 2010 when there still was the old NC to form fleets with around 800 guys who had no clue what ship to bring. But now sov holders are much more organized and entities like CFC know how to handle the masses they can bring to a fight.
    Some attentionwhores screaming “let´s revive evoke and claim cloud ring again!” won´t change anything.

  • Mister Vee

    Ev0ke did a campaign against EXE in Cloud Ring and tried taking sov + moons. And failed horribly cause EXE pushed Ev0ke shit in. Get your facts straight.

    • Rcmst

      We did. Thanks though, for telling us of something that is, in effect, ancient news. Perhaps next you could tell us about how Space Violence and other CFC entities AREN’T attempting, and failing, to take Ev0ke assets in Syndicate.

  • Die Biene ihr wisst schon.

    Good news !

  • Senex Legio 1

    Back in the day when we were with LAWN in Pure Blind, Evoke invaded and sent us a mail advising that they were invading, we were going to lose and they were willing to pay us some amount for our infrastructure. I believe the mail went to everyone in the alliance. Everyone responded with one word, “nuts!”. The invasion failed. That was for me one of the more humourous times in this game.

    Good luck to them. I hope they can pull it off.

    • Messiah Complex

      This is the best EVE story I’ve read in a while. Thanks.

  • CloudRingJew This is all I think of when reading this article.

  • fermaguel

    Just saying, when Germany goes to war, shit gets serious.

    Also, good to know we might be seeing Ev0ke on the map again, I had almost forgot they existed.

    • ROFLmmmK

      YOu havent been to war in over 60 years , and lost the last one.

      • Not funny

        Lost the last two, but then who is counting.

  • Dwight D. Eisenhower

    interesting timing. maybe we should plan something special for june 6th and have an internet spaceships version of operation overlord 🙂

    • soka

      for that evoke needs to invade and hold something in the first place….

      • Chief Gumbo Speaker

        No French alliances hold sov? I’m sure they would be happy to surrender.

  • eve

    Except their hasn’t been a campaign against them. What one fight bobmon your an idiot sometimes.

    • You’re

      * ‘you’re’

      • LSM

        Also *there

    • Pick a name

      I was gonna call bullshit just because EXE has three pvp pilots, how could that alliance be involed in a campaign.

  • na

    Fought Ev0ke and their training wing Ewoks and have very fond memories.
    These guys brought numbers every fight and enjoyed the brawls. gl to revitalising the Germanic race and superiority with eve-o.

    • Razor FC

      They will make life difficult for FA. I bet we have to come and save them as usual.

      • long live ev0ke

        Yeah… When was the last time Razor deployed, let alone deployed to save an ally, FA have been making some noise the past few weeks, more than can be said for you. That said don’t let me stop you going to save them, we are more than happy to shoot both of you!

        • TYYRATHOS

          RZR was first into the breech in Curse, before any other CFC affiliate at that time had gone there. Helped early on in the Halloween war.
          As far as FA is concerned RZR would gladly help but I am thinking they don’t need it.
          Evoke back in the day were very good in their Timezone and drew great numbers. But that was then.

      • Chris

        Where has Dave been?

      • lol

        razor deployments are a joke.

  • guestoberto

    prepare your Drake bpos and sell your ferrogel stockpiles !

    • asd

      What ist ein Ferrogel, mein Herr ?

  • Northern Vet

    I don’t see it happening I was one of the main fleet level Fc’s in Ev0ke between 2010/2012 from Cloud ring to Tribute, most of the Ev0ke old guard have either quit or joined other CFC hostile alliances. If it could be pulled off great but I think it’s probably to late now we have all found new homes or quit

    Still think we should have stood by Ncdot in Tribute and not sold everything off to be honest then maybe Ev0ke would still be about

    • lolwut

      True, also many vets resorted to other forms of PvP after the collapse of Ev0ke. Today the german solo/smallscale community is one of the most active and interconnected in the game. I doubt you can drag those people back into nullsec life.

    • ex

      Yup, after all we achieved it was a disgrace and completely pointless to not just fight to the (probable) death.
      I guess it’s really too late now but I’d be thrilled to see an Ev0ke kiting fleet lead by Raist, Chron or Seri fight a blob of clueless, sitting ducks again…

  • Ciaphas Cyne

    “To me this is a very interesting event because the Germans have and will always be one of the more dangerous kind within Eve online, using both efficiency and patience to their advantage.”

    so Germans are inherently more efficient and patient than the rest of us? tell me moar mein bobmon.

    • Jevous Encule

      The “myth” of German superiority !!

      • Ciaphas Cyne

        tell that to jesse owens!

        (our resident corp German is incredibly helpful btw… he does mention efficiency often…)

    • Rcmst

      The Germans are some of the most terrifyingly effective people in any alliance I’ve been apart of.

    • Chongo

      Its not about effectiveness, its about imersion, i would never alarm clock 2 weeks in a row for a game. They do it for fun. Americans are lazy, including myself but germans just need a patriotic alliance to get them to quit their jobs to save a timer.

  • GrouchyOldGamer

    Please feel free to list the moons ev0ke have taken from EXE.

    This article is somewhat detected from reality.

  • DrkyDrky

    There are more Germans loyal to the CFC than to Ev0ke, so Ev0ke is hardly the representation of die deutschen spieler in Eve

    • Evoke

      No true German would be so incompetent as to join the CFC.

      • EasyKill

        No true Scotsman?

      • Admiral von Schneider

        There’s a ton of retards on a major german forum loyal to the CFC.
        Zey shall be purged!

        • :(

          There’s window lickers in every nationality I’m afraid: I’m ashamed to say that far to many Brits have become lazy Incompetent fucks and joined cfc scrubs in recent years for the easy life. Makes my heart bleed so it does.

  • MesriN

    About time the germans woke up, now all we need is provi bloc, -A-, MM etc. to wake up and kick the living shit out of mittens and company and revive 0.0 so alot of people even bother trying to come back to the game we all love named EVE.

    • asdf

      -A-? Seriously? For one, they don’t undock, but moreover, they like sucking the CFC tit. If they “involve” themselves expect them to be CFC pets.

      • -A- is dead

        Also, most of the -A- membership worth a damn are now in PL and NCdot

        • Tony Abbott

          Agreed. There was a time where RAT., WAR.H and 81DIV were worth something, but most if not all of the old capable pilots have left them.

          • asdf

            81DIV was extremely overrated. Remember that that’s the corp the likes of ShadowandLight and Lord Rahvin came from.

    • VictoriaSin

      Provi tries not to get involved in politics outside of Provi and besides, you’re all over Provi at the moment in any case.

  • GUDFights??BS!

    Wow, how original your only the 50th or so “leet” pvpers to claim looking for gud fights. If you really looking for CFC people who will fleet, we are not that hard to find. You in the ass end of no where looking for a miner in a belt is not what i call looking for any type of fight. I zoom around the blue donut with nothing but inty fleets flying around. I gota fly 40 jumps to find anything bigger than a desy to fight.
    Tired of coming to you and than you dock up.
    Come to deklin, if have the sand.

    • Spurty

      Bloke no ones coming

      Enjoy your 50+ jumps to find content. Your leaders took your free will apparently.

      Translation baaaah

      Evoke good luck, seems you are already making people mad

    • Du bist wertlos

      Dude, you’re a fucking NPC that pays for that privilege.
      Not even belt rats are that retarded.

  • Aye

    Good luck to them, this time remember your friends mean more than space. Evoke should not make the same mistake twice by gifting space away to cfc fucks and turning coat tails on NCdot. If it comes to pass that something of similarities happens again and old allies of evoke and NCdot are renewed somewhat. Just remember to assist your allies till the end rather than giving up and running away.

    • Palapa

      Exactly don’t betray trust again. Evoke where power houses along with NCdot, both working and assisting each other against significant odds. When evoke leadership cowarded out to the dismay of there members that was it, all over for evoke as soon as they turned tail in the tribute war, something I don’t think they will ever live down to be honest.
      But a resurgence to kick mitten & cos rmting asses is always good.

      • :(

        I was in Ev0ke and totally agree, it was shameful. BTW, it was the FC-team that pussied out back then. They didn’t want the endless grind against the CFC blob and ze leaders were like “mkay, let’s do nothing and still rake in the moneys…thx 4 crashin on your couch, NC.!”

        • Lerl

          Yea an did them 0 good be lazy fucks. Failscaded instead.

    “Because FA is the Strongest Alliance in the CFC”

    • FA sets the Standard

      FA is the strongest alliance in the CFC. Have you ever seen MIT say otherwise? Have you ever seen any other CFC alliances disagree with this statement? I rest my case.

      • CFC Recruiter

        The mittens lack of response on E24 to defend his alliances position shows really weak leadership from him.

      • asdf

        FA most definitely is the strongest alliance in the CFC. They’re also terrible, therefore the rest of the CFC alliances are beyond terrible.

  • Elazar Keon

    more german stereotypes plz…..

  • vyshnegradsky they lost the fight at the end of the video…

  • Dhjinn

    Welcome back…..

  • Jarghul Nightowl

    Ahh Ev0ke, glad to see them back. They have a large pool of pilots to recruit from since Germans are a big chunk of the player base. That beeing said, there have been quite a few very old German corps like Kriegsmarinewerft? withing Goons/CFC for a very long time. The german community is no where all GRRR Goons. In fact I would even say, that the german community doesen’t have any agenda at all, since it is quite big you have all kind of players all over New Eden. However, back in the day you better came prepared when trying to cause trouble in Cloud Ring, Ev0kes old and maybe new home?

    • Mike Larry

      Who says you have to be grrr goons to be in evoke?

      • Jarghul Nightowl

        I don’t, I just mention it because of some of the comments at the bottom.

  • Marin Nicoale

    As much as people think Ev0ke hold so many assets in syndicate the fact remains that they dont . Difference betwen hiting a SpaceViolence r32/64 in syndicate and a Evoke R32/64 is that atleast the space pubbie goonies will bring 30-50 people and fight you . Reinforcing evoke means they batphone pretty much anyone willing to help and i mean anyone , they are currently not a power house not even a semi decent entity around syndicate . Just some randoms ….

    • Andrew Hacker

      Any time I see someone say ‘goonies’ it is instantly obvious they don’t have a fucking clue who goons are

  • Feday

    Bring back these old days Ev0ke and that would be pretty awesome

    • Bitter Vet

      I remember Cloud Ring we turned on them just after we finally eliminated Goons from what little space they had left in 0.0 (wow that was such a long time ago) when they were called Solodraksben something something

      Ev0ke/CryHavoc/Ncdot/DT was a pretty effective coalition and we were pushing the NC out of Fade/Cloudring/Pureblind but then IT decided to go and hit all of our moons in Syndicate because they were bored. The coalition split DT went south Cry Havoc disbanded and only Ev0ke and Ncdot were left to fight IT and NC, I do wonder what would have happened in the end if IT hadn’t decided to go after our moons in Syndicate because a few months later the old NC then kicked IT our of there space

  • ex-Northerner

    I always liked ze german wunderkind. Ev0ke was small, mobile, had a good reputation among their (granted, way more powerful) elite PVP friends, was kinda independent, made smart political deals and went to fight the big fights, despite their size.

    BUT I doubt they still have the leadership and especially the FCs to pull that off again. Raist Varis & Chronos VIII, their last two really awesome FCs, left in anger and they never had the numbers to compensate a mediocre FC.

    Nevertheless, good luck duders! And bring that enemy-fleet-crashing-cheetah 😀
