Forever IrrelevantWe are rounding out the first month in our new home (Molden Heath) and I must say, this is the best move we've ever done!
|OB's win PVPIP.|
We've had insanely good engagements from all of the locals. While we certainly don't have the skill or experience of the biggest corporation in the area, Calamitous-Intent [7-2], they still seem to enjoy engaging us, even when outnumbered. One of the problems with that reality is we have tons of guys clamoring to get on every single kill mail due to our PVPIP system. This results in one-sided fights getting to be even more so as guys dog pile into system; as evident in a specific engagement where our two Falcon pilots decloaked to whore on the mail of a 7-2 guys during one of our OB support ops above Planet Fight Club (Oddelulf III).
|The Falcons were clearly the reason he died.|
Now, granted - we are sitting, exposed, on a district beacon, visible to the whole system for around 30 minutes at a time, so there is plenty of time for scouts to get our fleet composition and muster the forces to take us. So having as force multiplayer on standby is good, but in this specific case it was definitely a douche move. Woops...
But 7-2 aren't the only hot-droppers around! I mentioned that we were tweeted about by CCP in my last post, well... we got an even BETTER engagement last night:
|Salid posted it on Reddit. And Selina did on Kugu.|
Dust Hate Starting to SurfaceAnyway, the other Dust/EVE hybrid Alliances have been a lot of fun. I especially love it when null Alliances that can't hack it in PC just claim they are waiting for Dust to move to nullsec before they invest any time in it... suuuuurrreeee.
|Hmm.. reinvent PC to matter to EVE... like earning OBs EVE-side? Getting kill mails? Getting sweet fights?|
However, not all the guys in that thread are as [sexually?] frustrated as that last post. Literally one post above Soraya here is someone who hits the nail on the head:
|HE is Spartacus!|
PC needs to add mechanics that involve more EVE integration, especially when initiating attacks or trading on the open market or manufacturing weapons. Otherwise it may just be us killing the EVE pilots of other Dust Alliances and then us getting hot dropped by a Bombers Bar variant or 7-2. But I have faith CCP will iterate and improve, as they have been since the launches of both Dust and EVE.
5 Years of Failure - Many More To Come!
General Tso's 5 year anniversary is almost upon us! Watch our killboard for what we do for it... although you should just stick to the "losses" page, tbh.
