6th April 2015 / New Eden

In the wake of their recent success in Catch, Pandemic Legion have announced their intention to create their own new-player friendly alliance known as “Pandemic Horde“. In a reddit post this weekend Gobbins, an experienced Pandemic Legion FC outlined his plans for Pandemic Horde and how it will tie into the new player experience, eve politics and Pandemic Legion’s modus operandi in general.

ЅIMPLE STRUCTURE: The CEO chooses a team of dіrectors to which he delegates tasks, these people make the decisions. The rest of the alliance is all on the same level. There is no middle management and no #mildirs.

FC FOCUЅED: The FCs bring the content аnd the cоntent brings the newbeans. Anyone is free to step up and FC as long as people are willing to join their gangs. FCs are free to experiment with doctrines and choice of targets. It is up to the members to decide which fleets are worth their time.

NEWBEAN FRIENDLY: We admire the Brave dojo program and wish to run the same thing in Horde. For this purpose we wish to combine the expertise of ex BNI FCs and also guest classes by members of PL and Waffles. Free skillbook program will also be available for the new players.

PARTNERSHIP: The Pandemic Horde is partnered with Pandemic Legion in a similar way WAFFLES is. It shares blu standings and sometimes supports PL fights but is otherwise independent. The Horde does not pay rent to PL‚ and makes the protection of it assets its own responsibility. The partnership with PL also allows new players to be on the right side of a massive fleet of supers, which might help with escalations.

HOME: Pandemic Horde will be basing in catch with HQ in HED-GP. This should provide a good place of operation for both getting fights, and allowing the new player to make some isk. The horde will not follow pandemic legion around the map but instead use a deployment system we called the “Ѕovіet Draft”

ЅOVIET DRAFT DEPLOYMENTS: Whenever horde pilots аre emplоyed to support PL’s fights‚ the pilots will only be asked to move their pods to the formup by the time the op beings. The logistiсs team wіll provide fitted ships at the destination to be handed out in the gang. The pilot only has to worry about moving its own сlone. Pаrticipatiоn to join fights is actually voluntary (unlike the actual draft).

ADOPT A NEWBEAN: A venue that allows newbeans to ask for financial support and/or mentoring by older players that feel generous. Both PL and Waffle pilots can volunteer to help out the newbean with advice on good flying and good posting.

Pandemic Legion certainly seem serious about this endeavor, delegating a host of FC’s and well known personalities from both Pandemic Legion and formerly of Brave Collective to spearhead it’s creation. Elise Randolph had the following to say regarding his role in the alliance:

I’ll be helping out as will JEFFRAIDER, but the real pillars are: Travis, Lament, Cyberking, Sting, Brood, and Gobbins. All these guys were inspired by you to help new players get sucked into the game with us.

Some believe the campaign in Catch against Brave Collective, and the high degree of skillpoints and experience required to join Pandemic Legion suggests that PL are less than receptive to new player groups. Earlier today I was able to speak with Gobbins who had the following to say regarding cooperation with new players, and to clear up any misconceptions regarding Pandemic Legion’s attitudes towards newer players.

Gobbins > PL has always cooperated with younger groups
Gobbins > way back in the day it was goons
Gobbins > more recently TEST
Gobbins > the combination of swarms of enthusiastic newer players and the backup and organization of the experienced bittervets has always been a great match

It’s worth noting Pandemic Legion’s past involvement in the HBC or “Honeybadger Coalition” which consisted of PL and TEST during a campaign in delve. The marrying of experience and new player enthusiasm doesn’t seem to be a new concept but with the creation of Pandemic Horde it may be the first time it has be formalized in such a way.

Phantra > Was the decision to form this alliance based on the success of groups like BNI, their current failures, or both? Do you think there’s any lessons to be learned that can be used by Pandemic Horde in light of the problems there at the moment?
Gobbins > yes you are correct in that it is both
Gobbins > BNI showed us the power of weaponized newbros
Gobbins > the laziest solution for us was a partnership but lychton shot that down
Gobbins > so we decided to make our own instead
Phantra > in what way did he shut that down? simply refusing to cooperate? or was there more to that
Gobbins > it seemed that this partnership was going to happen and then he suddenly went no contact and the next day announced relocating to delve

Pandemic Legion expects that this project will add a large wing of cheaper support ships to its doctrines; 150-200 man (ewar) frig/cruiser wings like they have seen BNI do.

Gobbins: That is it. This is not a renter agreement‚ our goal is not to milk this alliancе for isk.
This is PL’s motivation for providing its support.

The new Alliance have been seen setting up camp in the newly conquered HED-GP station working alongside Pandemic Legion with a rapidly growing membership base.

Certainly an interesting one to keep an eye on. More information about joining Pandemic Horde can be found ingame channel “Join HORDE”. They also have a subreddit here: http://www.reddit.com/r/pandemichorde/
