A new war is brewing in EVE Online

science, together, fun

Have you noticed that there seem to be fewer announcements of EVE Online‘s big space battles recently? The explanation is quite simple: There haven’t been many of late. With the alliance known as The Imperium in control of a huge sector of space, real territory conflict has stagnated for a couple of years, since no other single alliance was strong enough to challenge the group in charge. But that’s changed, with a number of elements making it newly possible for a newer group known as the Moneybadger Coalition to push back against the Imperium, carve up its territory, and break up the ruling body.

So what caused it? Essentially, the Imperium has grown more unstable and lost key members while also cutting itself off from some of the intelligence sources that would have warned of these attacks. CCP Games has also changed how Dominion mechanics work, allowing for guerilla-style fights that can have smaller ships win against capital opponents. The result has been a series of wins for the Moneybadger Coalition and a concentrated fallback by the Imperium, breaking up the state of power in the galaxy. With two years of peace to bolster the armaments of all participants, this could easily be the next big one.

ScottRondeau Ummm, The biggest faction here, CFC/The Imperium, is the one losing actually. They’ve pissed off one to many people this time it seems.

Murmillo Eve is easy… LOL.  It may not be as “hard” as people think, but it is an incredibly time consuming game.  I’m sure it’s very rewarding though.

“So what caused it? Essentially, the Imperium has grown more unstable and lost key members while also cutting itself off from some of the intelligence sources that would have warned of these attacks.”

What caused it is that they were royal dicks for years now, and they are reaping what they sowed. Never mind the failed Provi invasion or the ridiculous “Viceroy” plan, only a little while ago they decided to ‘invade’ the Low-sec areas south of their own territories, to grab some Moons, but of course that pissed off the residents that until now, were mostly satisfied fighting each other.
Do you know what low-sec alliances are really good at? Turns out it’s PvP. The invasion made them abandon their internal strife and united literally forming Voltron (the new coalition was named LSV = Low Sec Voltron), roflstomping the Imperium in every battle. I’m talking about one side losing entire fleets and LSV losing a few ships.
As a result to that, everyone saw the opportunity to dogpile on the Imperium from practically every border, and in a few days 3 alliances (~ 4.000 members total) have already cut their loses and left the coalition, while entire areas are under assault (with active timers).

Hey guys. 
This game is not as hard as people make it out to be! Look up ‘Eve is easy’ on Youtube and you will see! The best part is that you can be whatever you want in this vast universe and you will learn something every day and make a ton of real friends! Unlike in all the LFG games out there these days!
Here is a link to 21 days trial so you can give it a shot!

Nyphur wolfyseyes  Co2 just baled from cfc I mean Imperium.  Is there reliable info or just average the TMC and E24 reports to try to get near the truth?

Do you know enough of citadels to know if you’ll have one?

They sent me a free 10 days, I reinstalled and decided to queue a 7 day long skill, spun my ship around a few times, logged out. That’s my relationship with Eve for years now.
