Cloud Ring provides another space with different rats and 6 constellations so these guys can really grow. At the moment, CR only has 3 stations in one constellation but im willing to bet that it will change as Dek co gets more space from in CR. They will likely spam (or put one station per constellation) to prevent evoke from getting that space back. Of the 6 constellation only one of them will be hostile, it is the one that connects to Fountain, Syndicate and Outer ring. I think each alliance in Dek co will get a system there to put a JB there,
Also that region has at least 7 Tech moons (probably 10) and lot of Neo too. Even if CCP changes moon goo stuff that region is still very valuable if people manage to hold it.
