A Scientist's Life in Eve

Scary politics

by on Nov.07, 2012, under Eve online

So today has been slightly more interesting, although significantly less productive, than I had hoped for.

The reason?  I tend to try and change lo-sec cyno systems every so often to avoid being too obvious and letting patterns build up.

So I logged on one of the cyno alts and was very disappointed to see over 200 in local, when more than 5 would be busy.  After looking at some names, and setting an Alliance to -5, followed by undocking and hitting dscan, things became much more clear.  My dscan result returned 60 Super Capital ships and various other “normal” capital ships.

I decided to fly around a bit in m pod to see what I could see…. this was what I found:

Undeterred, I quickly ran away and jumped into the next system.

I was greeted by… around 100 in local from another null sec giant, who (according to smack talk in both systems and the odd kill mail) are not exactly blue to each other.

Needless to say, I decided that this particular cyno route would be rested for some time :P

I always wanted to see a huge super capital fleet, and now I have.  It would, however, be nice to be one of fleet with them, even if I was only in my triage Archon as support.

What this does illustrate, though, is the vast power that can be moved across the Eve universe very easily, and also hinted at political undercurrents that could reshape the already rather curious null sec political map.
