" It looks like a long siege is coming." -
Yea we jumped in and reinforced the ihub in about 5seconds after we killed the cyno jammer(keeps capitals from jumping in). So it wasnt long at all. Been a great war so far :) I like how the provi block hasnt given up and continues to fight even though they are loosing. And even though they started this fight, im glad we get the chance for some pew pew

eve 1 shots consistently get more comments than any other game submitted. Just shows how much Eve people care about their game.

Last night was great fun. Provibloc was outnumbered, but they put up a good fight. Many of them went and got new ships after the first fight, and took a second shot at the SBU.

I'm glad we finally downed the cyno jammer and brought in caps though.

Not really sure how long of a siege it can be when you are that outnumbered. It may be good fights, but the long term effect is going to be bad since Ushra Khan will probably be NRDS in name only, and people wont go there without any defense to be targets.

I know people have issues with provi, but its a lot better way for a small group to be introduced to 0.0 than being a pet of larger alliance, and I hope people dont choose wormhole living now as a result.

Call it the price they will have to pay for AAA support. If the point was to teach the holders a lesson, that big old laggy slaughter and the resultant pounding would have taught anyone. But if they go all the way and take them out, only UK will be the ones adhering to NRDS, and AAA and the other big alliances will ignore them. NRDS wont work unless they are willing to also police it, and readin up on the posts I don't think UK really cares for that.

I think the real goal is just to get rid of CVA as opposed to administer NRDS-I don't think UK claims they can do so better.

U'K NRDS works just fine. U'K did it when they last held sov in Providence.
It's not the type of NRDS that CVA uses to exploit ratting noobs - it's the type where neutrals entities are fully capable of taking care of themselves.

U'K is not going to be the Providence police. U'K is also not going to hold sov over Providence.

It's a great time for neutral corps who are willing and capable to hold space under NRDS. It sucks for the noobs who are used to CVA playing CONCORD for them.

As a former member of a Providence alliance, it pains me to see this happen. The game won't be the same, if the invading forces go all the way. I'd even say it will be more harsh for newer players, since Providence has been the place to gather first null sec experiences for a long, long time.

Any coward can enforce NBSI, but it took real greatness to maintain NRDS that long.
