So I just found out a hilarious bit of information and I think you all will enjoy it as well. Over on EveReddit, there's an interesting thread about wormhole space. Specifically, it appear Against All Authorities wants to wage war against all of wspace.
No, I'm not kidding. Yes, this promises to be hilarious. For those of you that can't be arsed to click the link:
[AAA.WH From: MulaSoldats Sent: 2012.04.07 06:47 To: Against ALL Authorities, Kevis Gorbaf, Lahari,
We are setting up Invasion. AAA.WH will be the intel channel for all WH OPS. Operators will provide initial intel and Capital placement. AAA will be responsible for the hammer.
Second, Cash Reward for WH's
C267 - Every single system must be found we have the first!
Find 'em, Invade them, Break the game.
Every invasion is one step closer to a new world order of WH's AAA will control.
A hilarious comment in the thread: "WHELP, NOBODY IN LOCAL, NEXT SYSTEM TROOPS!"
Now first off, let me tell you that there is no such thing as a C267 wormhole, so they must mean they want all the wormholes in the C267 constellation or they simply don't know how to read wormhole types. From the looks of things, they will be living in a C5 wormhole and raiding...C3...wormholes? Apparently they already have a staging system.
I do have to say that I wouldn't mind if they wiped out some of the Russian bots that plague wspace as well but I'm not holding my breath. Besides, any serious corp, Russian or otherwise, is in the higher classes. But since they now live in my neighborhood, I simply cannot wait to find them. Any decent wormhole corp that enjoys pvp or is willing to defend their system will smell blood in the water and come..."help" the situation.
It is this apparent lack of understanding of wormhole space that gives rise to such amusing ambitions, but also worries me since I can't help thinking about how this ignorance extends to people like the CSM (except Two Step and maybe one other) or even CCP. Wspace is one of the least broken, not at all in my opinion but I'm biased, areas in the game so when they finally get around to poking it again...who knows what will happen. But that's for another post.
For now, I will be :popcorn:ing it up as this unfolds. Not even a nullsec alliance can safely control a large swathe since they cannot project their numbers at will like they are used to in kspace. And I give it a week before most of them are stuck in a system because they forgot to fit probes and their dedicated scanners are busy elsewhere.
Welcome to my town, boys. Hope you don't mind getting bloody.
