Conflict within the East As soon as Extra


In case you are a daily reader of r/eve you haven’t any doubt little doubt seen an uptick in alliance and coalition stage propaganda, which is at all times one of many unwanted effects of a null sec battle.

FI.RE, a null sec coalition within the southeast of null sec centered on the as soon as mighty Legion of xXDeathXx alliance, is below assault.

Null Sec Coalitions – Jan 21, 2023

If this sounds acquainted, it could be as a result of the Imperium took a few swings at FI.RE final yr.  FI.RE had been letting their PAPI allies drop constructions on the boarder the Imperium shared with FI.RE to make use of to harass Imperium area.  At first The Initiative and a few native residents began on FI.RE, then Imperium SIGs and squads received concerned, after which the entire Imperium.

Each side claimed victory in these fights.  The Imperium blew up a bunch of constructions and pushed deep into FI.RE area, however ultimately fell again when FI.RE’s allies, notably Pandemic Horde, confirmed up in numbers to assist defend their area, tilting the numbers in opposition to the Imperium.  So FI.RE claimed they drove off the Imperium and have been capable of retake a bunch of their area, whereas the Imperium received to level an various areas that have been basically burned down the place FI.RE needed to begin from scratch once more.

The standard null sec stalemate.  It’s tough to kill a corp or an alliance from the skin in EVE On-line.   It requires an inner failure, demoralization or actually poor management, for a corporation to disintegrate.  So FI.RE took again its area and carried on.

Then got here the present conflict, and the propaganda line from FI.RE was that they despatched the Imperium packing final yr so that they have been prepared for a brand new conflict.

The one drawback is that the brand new foe is their former PAPI allies Pandemic Horde… that’s the group that bailed them out when the Imperium got here knocking.  And the Imperium isn’t going to take over Pandemic Horde’s function.  The truth is, The Initiative has deployed a few of its forces to take one more swing at FI.RE as properly.

So FI.RE seems like they’re in a little bit of a bind.  Possibly.

The query is how dedicated both of the attackers are to a objective of actually going after FI.RE in any severe approach.  On the one hand, each of the attackers began out deploying simply SIG or squad stage forces, which is often the indication that it’s extra of a seek for content material than an precise invasion.

However, SIG and squad stage actions, after they discover success, usually result in extra forces being deployed.  Issues might need began small, however the propaganda escalation this week in r/eve appears to point {that a} nerve has been struck someplace.

Simply yesterday Pandemic Horde flooded the zone, inviting plenty of individuals to some and kill a Legion of xXDeathXx Keepstar in Insmother.  (RAZOR Alliance, a FI.RE member, additionally misplaced a Keepstar, although it received caught in a freighter as they tried to sneak it away.)

This can be a combat I’m viewing from the sidelines, and r/eve is usually a treacherous supply of data when two sides are preventing a propaganda was alongside facet their area battles.  However ultimately zKillboard and DOTLAN will inform the story.
