So I was wondering who the hell NCDOT are.
A member of Goonswarm once joked that if their opponents ever made a corp named 'The NC' they would obliterate any Goon fleet without resistance. About a month later, former elements of Triumvirate went ahead and created a whole alliance called 'Northern Coalition.' and proceeded to cause all kinds of mayhem in Fountain and Outer Ring.
A few days go NCDOT turned up on the border of Providence, basing out of the system of Yong. As suspected by many, it soon became apparent that they were working with Evoke. Since NCDOT is mostly a US time zone operator, any advantage that New Providence previously had in that slot promptly vanished.
Word on the street is that Sodalitas, Daisho Syndicate and Agony are already making their evacuation plans, and will be exiting Providence soon. The remaining members of New Providence simply don't have the numbers to mount any meaningful resistance. At this point it's all over apart from the sovereignty grind.
This is going to be a very decisive time for CVA. Potentially they could make make huge gains, though I suspect their cultural identity will not allow them to negotiate any deal with a NBSI entity.
Time will tell, but today markes the end of another era for the region.
So I'll be leaving Providence for now. I've got itchy feet again and there are still whole regions of the EVE universe I've never visited, frontiers I've never seen. I'll probably hang out in high-sec for a while and make my plans. If I stumble across anything interesting, hell I might even write about it.
In the meantime, this is Rebecca Aventine signing off.
