Fresh off the heels of the end of their campaign in Catch, Pandemic Legion were seen deploying to Stain on Monday to start a new offensive against N3 Coalition member Nulli Secunda‘s Esoteria holdings.

Pandemic Legion Supercapitals on the move this week.

Having weighed up their options as the largest mercenary alliance in New Eden initial speculation as to Pandemic Legion’s sudden interest in Nulli Secunda ranged from personal disputes to laziness. However, the first inclination of such a motive was indicated in a broadcast to the Clusterfuck Coalition (CFC) from The Mittani.

directorbot: Oh, silly me, I forgot to mention that I hired PL to kill S2N.

something something regards goes here~

~~~ This was a broadcast from the_mittani to all at 2015-04-07 ~~~

With The Mittani’s reputation often being associated with misinformation and distrust it initially became an interesting talking point. Pandemic Legion’s long-term ally, Northern Coalition., are the head of the N3 Coalition spear, and with Nulli Secunda as a permanent member of the N3 coalition, how will this play out in the New Eden political landscape? Would a contract such as this interfere with the CFC Campaign in Delve? Would N3 withdraw to protect Nulli Secunda’s assets in Esoteria? Would Pandemic Legion reset the entire N3 Coalition?

A short time later, Pandemic Legion confirmed they had taken a contract in the region for an undisclosed amount from the CFC.

The campaign was gearing up to be quite an interesting one politically and also had the potential for some exciting back and forth between these two PVP focused Alliances. Nulli Secunda’s healthy abundance of Supercapitals, strict and effective Tech 3 fleet doctrines and effective fleet commanders could certainly give Pandemic Legion a fight worth having. As evidenced previously in the last Pandemic Legion campaign in Delve, in which the sides clashed for months over control of the region. However, it seems that this is a conflict not meant to be seen again as the leader of Nulli Secunda, progodlegend, issued a full withdrawal from the area immediately in an address to the alliance.

Progodlegend:
I’ll be blunt and brief, as some of you already have known for a couple of days now, PL has been hired by CFC to invade our space. High command has known about some aspects of this for a little while, and we’ve been evaluating our options the past few days. As you have seen over the past 24 hours, we’ve started the process of restaging our assets out of HHQ and into AZN.

In terms of political impact, this may not be the great upset that many had anticipated. With N3 and PL locking horns previously over a Pandemic Legion campaign against The Kadeshi early last year. This resulted in Northern Coalition. and Pandemic Legion supercapitals having a cold-war style showdown on a Kadeshi starbase structure. However, this did not lead to any significant standings reset or battle as a result.

So what is there left to do? It seems that this will now become a grinding campaign for Pandemic Legion, a far cry from the consistent content that “bullying brave” had to offer. There are rumours that this area has in the region of 200-300bn isk worth of harvestible moon materials ripe for the picking. Also with the Russian alliances looking to firm up their operations in the area Pandemic Legion may use the opportunity to increase their moon holdings whilst the iron is still hot before moving on to their next endeavour.

    Hmm, the headline is pretty mis-leading. It reads PL has decided to not do the contract after all, but story itself is about the boring grind PL is about to par-take… not that they really give a crap, they ground cache in a week, I’m sure they won’t mind grinding down the Estoria area in that time either.

        PL saw the writing on the wall. If they kept that rental empire they would have to defend it in Fozzie Sov. Which they could not! XDeath was stupid to buy it, they should have just taken it “but politics”. PL played it smart, kept their guys interested in the Brave farming, and now have full pockets and get to gather tears from N3. It really does not matter who they fight, as long as they are getting paid and they are retaining members.
        For them to hold and defend sov would not be as lucrative as bullying locals for isk, or taking contracts for isk etc. The only thing they may have issues with is capital production. And of course, they probably struck a deal with XIX for cheap supers etc. Now that the game is changing and supers/titans may not be as important a role in sov grinding, they may not need them as much. But truly, it is their super capital abilities that makes them dangerous. When they come in subcaps, they will be outnumbered and they just are not as good in subs as supers. ๐Ÿ™‚

        If PL had sov, everyone who has ever been wronged by them, would come and take it from them. Just to spite them. ๐Ÿ™‚ – because we all know, that is the PL way.
        And human beings like to return pain, with pain.

Renting empire age is over, the moons are shitty, and the space allso……Bleed just to give content for PL? Not a chance, if PL was so dumb to accept contract from CFC, let them suffer. Mindless structure grinding for an entire region. Let them work for their 600 Bill…… Progod probably laughing pretty hard at PL right now.

All the shit lords that run null will get into their faggerton 5 jabber channel and come up with a way to game the new system in order to maintain the same old and continue their totally no RMTing. The only if is that once the average player realizes that new sov didn’t change anything will they give up on the game?

    There’s fuckall Nulli feels a need to fight for in Esoteria is the main issue.

    Out of the 22 Systems Nulli has in Esoteria, 19 are no station systems that nobody uses for PvE, and there are three station systems, of which the only one of note is the HHQ station, which provides a mildly more convenient JF route from empire to Feythbolis than avoiding it.

    The rest of Esoteria is NA. space, and as long as relations between NC and PL remain warm, I doubt any renter systems are in direct danger unless we try and base out of them,

    There’s really no strategic or financial reason to try and hold the line at HHQ. Even if we suddenly lose all the money moons in those 22 systems, it’s not going to be worth it to heavily defend them against PL in order to keep them for the two months until Fozziesov (at which point we will probably bugger off somewhere else entirely)

    So it’s completely unsurprising that we chose to pull back to the space we actually use, and stage at the chokepoint entrance to Feythbolis from Esoteria.

        Perhaps, but I consider it unlikely. PL is doing this on contract for CFC, to harass Nulli. Unless it’s explicitly agreed upon in their contract I can’t see a positive for them by annoying NC by taking NA. space if Nulli is not basing out of it. (HHQ is actually a NA. Station) NC get’s a very large chunk of the NA rental income after all.

        Farming your semi-allies renters is all fun and games, but taking the space and thus stopping the rental income get’s a bit more serious.

          NA. is a shared rental alliance for most of the N3 members, nulli receive money fro mteh renters in the southern regions. NC. won’t really be affected be it and after the sov changes renting won’t really be a thing. No reason to fight for sov you don’t intend to keep.

    this is just a CFC tactics to destroy N3 coalation and NC. relation to PL, as long as PL’s greed is still there, they will use PL to destroy NC. allies so its up to the NC. to stand up and defend there friends thats being bullied by PL which they all know that CFC was behind this bullying, if NC. will not defend there allies, its just clear that NC. dont care about there allies and there just too scare to slap PL, and they might actually turn there back because it is really important for them to keep there empire out of harms way, but NC. dont really realized that PL is a greedy alliance and a backstabber, all PL wants is there own welfare, thats why they dont blue alliance who are not threat to them, and if NC. will not help and defend there friends and allies, everyone knows that this will be the start of the relationship being tainted, and once its tainted, this will be the start of doom of N3 coalation, cause as you all know Nulli is the 2nd foundation of N3 coalation and there like the younger brother of NC., and in every campaign that NC. been doin Nulli is always be there to support them, so if you are a brothers in arms, how would you help your allies, that you know it is being targeted by CFC (which is your mortal enemy), and being bullied by your friend who got paid by CFC. it is so sad to see a situation like this but you gotta think too hard, and assist the situation, to who really is your real friend and allies are.

    NC. should not fall on CFC dirty tactics, its is clear that CFC will do all kind of sort to destroy N3 coalation, BL and friends, this is a sign that CFC are too scared on the situation, thats why there first move is to use PL to destroy NC. allies, coz CFC knows if they can destroy NC. and Nulli’s friendship this would result to a lesser oppostion which CFC think they can handle, and probably in the long run they will be able to eliminate NC., BL. and Friends.

    this is just my thought but i think it is a big possibility that this is what mittani is doin…. its called Diversion tactics.. think like an elitist.
