Supposedly Init are not following Raiden around like a lap dog, they are hired as honourable space mercs. Seriously, who is paying these guys? I'm starting to believe their leadership is faking their contracts~ for some reason.
There's nothing worse than having a good idea for a post not being good enough to pull it off :negative:
Reading the thread and taking into account most of the parties involved, made an exercise with the intention of matching up both sides of the conflict.
Alliances are ordered by potential pilots online (based on previous battle reports). Also tried to match each alliance with a counter on the other side of similar strength, based on my own perception.
This is what I came up with:
# CFC # SoCo
Goonswarm Fedeteration vs. AAA + Solar 450 450
Test vs. Nulli Secuda 300 150
Razor vs. Red Alliance 170 150
FA vs. Red Overlord 150 120
Pandemic Legion vs. Raiden 120 100
Evoke vs. Gypsy Band + Stain 120 100
Fidelas vs. En Garde 120 80
TNT vs. Cascade 70 70
Gentlemen vs. HUN 70 40
SMA vs. Veracruz 60 40
EXE vs. The Initiative 40 40
Lawn vs. The Kadeshi 40 30
Convicted vs. Viking Empire 30 20
99% vs. Pangu Coalition ? ?
Aurora vs. Ultima ? ?
TOTAL 1740 vs. 1390
If you want to call us Raiden lapdogs for that, go for it.
btw I don't know where you get "elite" thing from but keep spreading that meme, it might raise our pay a bit.

We value you as a member of the EVE Online community; however toxic behavior will not be tolerated. ~CCP
-A-, Nulli, RA and the rest (those with sov that have something to lose) were all neut and will go back to being neut after this all ends.
Also I'm pretty spacemad that Duco's post put us as the SoCo equivalent of EXE, sad times.
I don't know what the fuck that FC was thinking, but you don't just go roaming around with 140 drakes unless you are ready to get them all dumpstered.
Also PK you're shit at bombing.
*edit* again neither is solar welp!
I now have to say that the worst part about this entire war is the return of the Drake to the southwest. S2N & Co. had managed to basically exterminate the local populations, but nooooo, you had to reintroduce them from northern flocks, and now eastern populations are eyeing the pastures of Delve as well.
It is a travesty.
(And it's the side with RA in it, so I hope they paid plenty because jesus christ :/)
While Raiden still have an impressive supercap fleet on paper, I doubt they'll be a driving factor in the war and potential supercap showdowns.

please good fights

I am going to give you the same vid as I gave Wusti, Progod.
The months talked about in the song are almost the same as last time also
Can't wait for the weekend. Hopefully all the players in this game of Delve will be ready and overcome by bloodlust. I want to see tidi fuckery everywhere. Goons got that covered, I know~
e- And GF SoCo (cant get used to the name it takes effort to type anyone else got this problem?)
Blob warfare = Sov warfare
Just get over it fellas, people are gunna drop everything they've got to take/defend space, unless their cowards.
Vik is one delusional dumb motherfucker.
The confusion is understandable though, we usually show up with twice as many dudes as RA to defend RA sov.
RA sov we were in the progress of taking before all this started going down.
EVE is weird like that sometimes.
just rename all your fleet comps to welpxxxx so you can't really lose a fight

I think I've seen 450 goons (AKA Goonswarm Federation) login at once... like... once? Their more "average" number is about 150-250, depending on TZ and location of fight. Delve is fuckoff far away from dek and its not "ohgod" critical so expect to see 100-150 Goonswarm Federation pilots (<-- thats the important bit) in fleet. What tips the scale is the rest of the CFC bringing 40-100 dudes per fight per alliance. (TNT @ 40, FA @ 100, RAZOR @ 80, and so on.). However the -A- train of hangers on can do the same thing so it's actually quite even.
We had fun, you guys had fun. It wasn't quite a good matchup and our FC was primaried first, and I still said it was a GF. I know you like the smell of your own shit, but you should probably remove your head out of your ass before you suffocate.
