NRDS sucks. thats all.
NRDS sucks. thats all.
How does it suck? if you don't like it. It means you have a lot of targets in the area. both pvp capable or carebears, take your pick according to your competance level. Or if you like it it means you have an area in which to do your thing without having to be on standby for CTA's. Honestly, whats not to like about it except that your too cool for NRDS and are jumping on a bandwagon.
I like the space police thing that CVA's ally Null does, like higher skilled PvPers who get intel from a region populated by softer blues
just dont like waiting for neutrals to shoot at me before I may shoot back.
Edit: looking at the other alliances it seems that Teutonic Guard might be the next alliance to go: http://evemaps.dotlan.net/alliance/Teutonic_Guard
EVE fail pilot since 06.
Personally, I'd like to see more NRDS space in Providence. The whole "fight club" idea never appealed to me. Neighbors fighting with each other just weakens both sides and makes it easier for outsiders to crush one or both. These are my personal opinions, but LEGIO in general is not really a roaming alliance. We don't normally feel a need to go out and raid other people's space, trying to kill ratters and miners. Our PVP activities tend to be defensive in nature, either guarding our space or helping allies resist invasion.
As for LEGIO's plans, we don't intend to go anywhere.
http://www.eveonline.com/ingameboard...readID=1289924You were NRDS before after all. Most in CVA don't, but I still feel bad every time I kill a legio pilot
It is... omg shocking... to see Legio trying to swap sides again when the fire gets heavy. Shock. Ing.
There has always, in my opinion, been respect between TRUE NRDS entities, even if they are of opposing beliefs. There are simply too few of us to point fingers, so we should rejoice everytime another slice of eve, no matter how small, goes to the civilized way of doing things.
Sorry for the :lolrp: post
The only reason Legio is talking about going back to NRDS is because they think they can get back into CVA good graces by doing it. Legio still has the same leader, the same one that made the thread I linked where he proudly announced they are going NBSI. When CVA tells them to take a hike, they'll either stay NBSI or failcascade.Why would any NRDS enthusiast be sad to see another NRDS entity in the game?
Better for NRDS groups that alliances like Legio be cannibalized and failcascade so that if there are any legit NRDS pilots in the alliance, they go to proper and true NRDS groups that are committed to the RoE and don't flip sides as soon as the ships start poppin'. No legitimate self-respecting NRDS alliance would ever have gone NBSI and blue'd up Ushra'Khan. Legio is awful and deserves a mercy bullet to the dome.
I don't understand the concept of people dismissing slights and bad deeds that someone has done to you in this game.I don't understand the concept of people dismissing favors and good deeds that someone has done to you in this game.
I'm going to have to disagree with your opinions here, as well as your assertions. UNITY was technically NRDS themselves at the time, even if they did have some warzone exceptions I wasn't a fan of. As for "as soon as the ships start popping", where have you been for the past year? The ships haven't stopped popping, and I don't expect them to.Better for NRDS groups that alliances like Legio be cannibalized and failcascade so that if there are any legit NRDS pilots in the alliance, they go to proper and true NRDS groups that are committed to the RoE and don't flip sides as soon as the ships start poppin'.

U'K hasn't been NRDS in many years now. All they have done is shoot at NRDS alliances for the past three years, and not just for RP reasons, you can see by their actions in G-W currently that they are an NBSI alliance.
For the most part, your carebear party in 6-0 has been uninterrupted save a few cloaky ships here and there. Now you have a sov threat on your doorstep that can squash you in US TZ and your allies, the only thing that saved your space from CVA to begin with, are leaving the area. A far different situation than prior, hence why people like you from Legio are on here talking about going NRDS, a last desperate fail-plan to try to obtain CVA as an ally.As for "as soon as the ships start popping", where have you been for the past year? The ships haven't stopped popping, and I don't expect them to.
Precisely.Yes, our leader has remained the same.
Hand I would have to argue against that statement, there was a fairly constant CVA presence in the main part of LEGIO space for several months that didn't let up until systems started dropping sov and our attention went elsewhere. From our prospective based on when our campaign started there was a clear drop in Legio membership and activity up to s9x becoming CVA sov. At that point CVA focus drifted elsewhere and the consistent activity against LEGIO ceased. In fact its fairly safe to say LEGIO probably saw MORE CVA interference than any other NIP group with the possible exception of Flying Dangerous who saw interference simply due to the fact of the proximity of N8 to Misaba.
LEGIO turned its back on CVA when going got tough, and that's not something aralis looks kindly on. I was talking with him a few weeks back and the subject came up about what would happen if the old holder alliances that bailed came back, and basically his response was "they can all go burn in hell".
No bitter and rage about it, they're just not NRDS. It's a long-standing U'K troll. They're NBSI and they exclusively partner with NBSI groups. They might be NRDS in Jove space, but I haven't made it out that far yet to check it.
And yes, actual NRDS alliances and corps should actually TRY to get along, considering that we're outnumbered by 99% of eve's population.
Legio where never a holder alliance of CVA, just some guys who lived in providence under CVA's protection.
Theres a difference between the two..
To qoute Aralis : I may well have said that about Legio I've certainly not said any of the old Holders can burn in hell! I wish them well and would welcome them back.
LEGIO didn't just leave the space nor changed sides. Under the pressure from UK LEGIO went to RP forum and announced that they are renouncing CVA and its slaver activities. Every non-holder in provi got that threat from UK "renounce CVA and make a post in RPforum or be perma decced", most of them didn't take them seriously since UK usually camped hubs and pipes to kill wts. that annoucement is not a big deal to me or to most ppl in eve but to a RP alliance it is a big deal.
as for UK they don't have a flexible NRDS policy. They go NBSI wherever they are living and fighting and rest is NRDS. technically UK is NRDS in tenal but you don't see them there so who cares. SF and EM are both viable NRDS groups. we can all make fun of Jade but SF is strict on their NRDS policy. Both groups don't enforce their policy on their allies but they do follow it everywhere in eve!
This is not an apology, and I don't expect this explanation to give CVA any warm fuzzy feelings. I just wanted to explain my point of view from within LEGIO to try and give everyone a better view of the issue. It was a big issue for me personally at the time and I almost left LEGIO over the way it was handled, especially since some of the aforementioned NBSI enthusiasts took advantage of the situation to basically go pirate. Even so, I'm glad I decided to stick with LEGIO. It's been a fun and interesting year.
AKA: "When the going got tough, we flipped sides to the winning team. Now the going is getting tough, who will take us?"I believed then and I believe now that it didn't matter what LEGIO did, CVA was going to get pushed out of Providence. Our leader accepted the deal to get some space in the aftermath.
However, CVA does not conduct diplomacy on public forums, and we certainly don't conduct diplomacy through third parties speaking on our behalf. It has been a great frustration of mine to observe "CVA said" statements when maybe "CVA" never "said" that, maybe it was an ally of CVA who felt obliged to speak up for us.
From what I gather, and ignoring the "they say X but do Y" stuff, there's three general types of NRDS:
1) The alliance defines the red list and sets others to red if they shoot people who are not on that list. (CVA)
2) The alliance has a red list and sets others to red if they shoot people not on that list, but allows other corps/alliances to have their own reds and blues as long as they don't "overdo" the redding. (EM, TRUE, RE-AL)
3) The alliance maintains their own red list and does not care what other alliances do. Groups get set to red for shooting the alliance, but for nothing else. (U'K, SF)
Some of this is area-dependent. For example, all of CVA, EM, TRUE and RE-AL do their various degrees of "enforcing" standings only for specific areas (CVA for Providence, "lower" Domain and Derelik; EM for Heimatar, Metropolis, Molden Heath and Great Wildlands; RE-AL for Great Wildlands; not sure about TRUE).
Some of these entities have different RoEs depending on where they are (U'K, mostly; I think all others are NRDS everywhere).
U'k doesn't fall into same category as SF. U'K is NRDS in name only, SF have their own list and they usually send mail if they are making an alliance red. U'K simply goes into the region and blues all the strong ppl and declares that said region will be battle ground and they will be NBSI. For too long U'K said they are NBSI in providence/catch/curse and NRDS everywhere else but they don't operate anywhere else. Like i said eariler we can all hate Jade for being Jade but he does NRDS correctly.
Dara Cothrom lost a 100 man corp recently and have started dropping sov. Bye fags o/
Re-Al is NRDS everywhere. And so is (to my knowledge) TRUE.
We call it SRSI (Set Red Shoot It) which is a little more proactive than "passive NRDS". Meaning: Neuts aren't shot at but eyed warily.
U'K, RoE aside, proved themselves time and again as untrustworthy drama queens in cloaky Vagas. I can't understand the fuzz about them. I hope -V- and VOLT are enjoying their allies "help".
Back to Providence - DACO have recently transferred all the outpost sov from one of their holding corps, DARA HOLDINGS, to another of their holding corps, Phoenix Industries and Logistics. They also dropped sov in all of their non-outpost systems. Might mean that they're transferring sov to another alliance and leaving the area, as a friendly poster above noted.
That, together with Teutonic Guard cascading and AGONY moving to Curse, cost the NIP about 20% of their members.

I'm happy to hear about groups I forgot or I erraneously added :-)
The member numbers are given only to give a rough idea about the relative importance; member numbers don't matter much unless they're off by a few factors. E.g. when we hear about LEGIO (216) possibly leaving, it'll likely be less of a blow than e.g. BDEAL (891) leaving. How much less is difficult to say. Certainly not 4.125 times less of a blow. So don't give too much about the exact numbers.
Why the hell did Wretched. leave NC. anyway?
The paper numbers understandably don't tell the whole story.
At the battle for JEIV-E, Evoke & Ewoks fielded about 180 to the NIP's 200 in US prime time, so the effective numbers favor Evoke quite strongly now that Diasho, Soda and Agony have left the building.
But what allows Evoke to really punch above it's weight is the number of Guardians and Super-carriers it can deploy.
I don't know anything really about Circle of Two, but their return to the region may change things again.
Imperial Order got reset by the other providence alliances for not being around when needed. As for DACO they're currently in the progress of pulling their operations in providence, although they haven't figured out where they will go next from what I've heard.
Evoke meanwhile seems to be focusing on securing Daisho and Solus space, but what they're going to do next is still in the air.
The big wild card right now seems to be Co2
EVE fail pilot since 06.
Gargle Blaster I believe mazz saved your ass from being booted from co2 the other day.
it will be official soon but co2 is failcascading
half are moving back to venal? according to someone in the politics thread anyway.
Random NC. aeon was hitting one of my corps reaction pos's yesterday. Thankfully it seems he was just waiting for an op =)
A quick update:
-Ev0ke has taken 12 systems (10 with stations) in Provi, most notably the six pack
-Ewoks have taken 4 systems (1 with station), all of which are buffered by Ev0ke owned systems
-Someone has closed down the NIP's (or what's left of its) intel channel, leaving every alliance to fend for themselves
-Co2 and Agony have been reset by some of the remaining NIP
-NC. currently has their cap fleet in lower Provi, right now they're bashing a POS in 08z
That's all I've got for the time being.
