“Pet”… it’s an adjective (or maybe it’s a noun?) that I’ve seen tossed around quite often in EVE Online and there are a number of older blog posts about pets:

But I’ve not read anything recently about pets and I’m curious about what defines a Corporation/Alliance as a pet versus getting defined as a friend/ally in the current political structure of New Eden? Is it strictly the size of the entity or how much ISK they’ve got in their wallet or how efficient their killboard stats are or some other combination of factors that I’m missing entirely?

I’ve lost track of the number of times Feign Disorder has been referred to as a pet and not a pet to just one specific Alliance but we’re apparently the pet of a half-dozen different Alliances?!?

Now I am just a lowly line member and am not privy to the political goings-on within Feign Disorder but .FRAG has been with FEIGN for nine plus months and I can honestly say that from my perspective I do not see us having any ‘pet’ like relationships with anyone. Again this is just my view of things but in my eyes our Leadership definitely lean more toward the friend/ally/frenemy type of relationships with the other entities in New Eden.

Here’s to your frenemies!

Fleet Doctrines… we’ve got a couple of main fitting wizards in [.FRAG] and they work together planning our doctrine fits which have been very deliberately worked through staying in line with the probability that we’ll be fighting outnumbered – which is a solid way of thinking for any sized Fleet in New Eden as if the fight plays out for any length of time it is very likely that another Fleet will join in or a bigger Fleet will be on their way.

Factors like targeting range, engagement window (ie; who/what can you effectively engage), speed, signature, engagement life span (ie; capacitor life) all play a part in the fit planning process and our fellas are incredibly adept at getting fits together that perform remarkably well – as folks are wont to say “The proof is in the pudding”.

Now while many of our doctrine hulls are the same as what [NAGA.] use the exact fittings are not and this has caused troubles during some Fleets. A couple of the bigger issues are fits in the same hulls with different engagement ranges and then we’ve got support from logi that is not cap stable and can’t keep up with the main fleet.

It’s another case of we’ll see how this plays out, hopefully the Fleet Doctrine decision makers will all get together and hammer things out…

Sorry for the quietude… things are afoot and there are, again, changes taking place with our Alliance level of ‘organization’ and I’m, again, not entirely sure how this will all play out. Hopefully stuff should get resolved in the next day or so and then we’ll see how things look and what I can write about it.

Regardless of how things go on an Alliance level I’m in with my RL brother and the .FRAG crew for the long haul – I’ve been super fortunate to be welcomed into .FRAG and to meet these pilots they’re a solid, respectful, tight knit group who’ve got each others backs and truly enjoy playing EVE with one another – much fun is had with this crew, even when we’re getting wreck’d!

Yfir-maðr Sǫk Umrœða

Let me start this off by stating clearly that I am just a lowly line member of our Corporation/Alliance and without a doubt don’t envy our Leadership in the least!

We, The CORVOS, are not a very large Alliance, I’d say we’re in the middling size of Alliances in New Eden but our Leadership has to deal with a full on metric shit-ton of stuff while managing the Alliance and keeping us all organized, productive, active and entertained.

One of their latest issues has been with them dealing with another Leader within the Alliance that was making decisions and working on Alliance plans without any counsel and wasn’t communicating transparently with them which obviously ended up causing some problems within our Alliance and with our Blues and in the end got he and his Corporation booted from The CORVOS. Initially the ousted Corporation was set to +5, for what was to be a seven day period, to allow them to move out any assets but then we found out the ousted Leader had been actively working to recruit others in attacking us, as well as actively trying to pay our Blues to attack us so… they have been reset completely and their members are now fair game!

Drama, drama, drama  – but also content, content, content 🙂

It’s extremely unlikely that my last post has anything to do with it but an Alliance meeting is about to take place and hopefully some solid information on our overall goals and the who/what/when/where/why/how of attaining those goals will be passed along.. we’ll see how this goes over the next day or two. I’m eager to get involved with whatever those goals are but don’t want to do so with blinders on.

Hvat Næstr?

Being a line member in an Alliance/Corporation means there’s lots going on that you’re not aware of. The Leadership are making plans, arranging and organizing ‘things’, and for the most part a line member isn’t informed of these ‘things’ until they are ready to be implemented/deployed. We’re getting a bit of that currently and I’m all good with it – I’m along for the ride and am down for pretty much whatever.

Here’s to the future!
