The Aegis Sovereignty System is not enjoyed by everyone but then it’s not meant to be – it was implemented to shake things up…

This is a comment on a reddit post from a day or two ago:
 
“Just want to let you know, and this comes straight from the top…it will get a lot worse if we are unshackled from the weight of sov. We do what we do because it should be painful to have as much as you have. The old goon meme used to be “Diplomacy OP” but Aegis made vast swaths of underutilized space uncomfortable, in hopes of balkanizing null. All FEIGN have done since Aegis is poke sov for fights from Curse, accidentally win some, and then literally give it away to anyone that asked with no strings attached, to populate space and make it more interesting for small entities. It got to the point where every time we saw a final freeport station timer that we were likely to win we started dropping “hey, who wants a free station in null-sec?” in random public channels because we already had too much. We are good for the game, just not your 20k blues game.”

… and I believe it’s succeeding!

“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!

The season of tournaments is upon us. In September we have EVE Down Under Collides! in October we’ve got Alliance Tournament XIV then on November 6th we see the start of the EVE_NT Championship. Feign Disorder is participating in the AT this year and are looking at the EVE NT Championship as well but unfortunately I’m not participating with them as I just don’t have the time right now to make all the practices (and I definitely need the practice!).

Maybe next year things will be a little less busy and I can get more involved with the tournament play…

I guess one of our fellas missed the Wardec notification and took a nasty loss that will likely have The Marmite Collective interested in extending the war a week or two.

An extra long war will suck but it will mainly hit our supply/logistics crew who will have to modify their operations to keep our staging area supplied which could mean some disruption to our general line members if ships, ammo, etc… aren’t getting brought in on the regular. But it’s usually not a huge deal, the crew somehow seem to keep the supply line running efficiently.

What will we do while under the Wardec and staying away from High-Sec space? Honestly keeping busy is not often an issue for us, there is almost always a few fellas out looking for trouble for the Alliance, there are numerous Alliance operations run every week, in .FRAG we run some Corporation operations to keep our things running, you can do some PI, there are ADMs to keep up so ratting and mining are always a welcome activity and of course you can go off solo and look for some content too.

For those times when Alliance/Corp activities are slow I’ve been thinking about getting back into some drag bubble camping and have been exploring the idea of using a cloaky Force Recon Ship for the job – something like the Rapier below would be a nice boat to engage pretty much any hull Destroyer down and a number of the Cruiser sized hulls.

[Rapier, Aloysius]
Ballistic Control System II
Damage Control II
Nanofiber Internal Structure II
Ballistic Control System II

50MN Cold-Gas Enduring Microwarpdrive
Large Shield Extender II
Large Shield Extender II
Stasis Webifier II
Stasis Webifier II
Warp Disruptor II

Covert Ops Cloaking Device II
Rapid Light Missile Launcher II, Caldari Navy Mjolnir Light Missile
Rapid Light Missile Launcher II, Caldari Navy Mjolnir Light Missile
Rapid Light Missile Launcher II, Caldari Navy Mjolnir Light Missile

Medium Bay Loading Accelerator II
Medium Core Defense Field Extender II

Acolyte II x5

Rapier - Aloysius

With the cloak you should be able to pick your fights well by just staying hidden for any engagements that you don’t want to take. She has no scram but the long point and double webs should hold down your target solidly and give you the ability to dictate your engagement range. She is not cap stable so pulsing the MWD and some deft piloting will be key to keeping your distance. If you are a particularly good pilot or simply ‘space rich’ you could bling out the webs and disruptor which would extend your point range to 30km and your webs out to 60km, that would give you a little buffer for keeping range.

I’m neither a particularly good pilot or ‘space rich’ so will stick with the T2 modules and see how it goes 🙂

We’ve got another Wardec upon us, this time from The Marmite Collective, they are a fairly efficient group of High-Sec Mercs that primarily operate near the Trade Hubs. Unfortunately for them FEIGN doesn’t spend much time in High-Sec so it’s highly likely that this one won’t last too long, unless they’ve been hired to Wardec us then it’ll last as long as the contract is in place.

I guess we’ll see but regardless there are some super simple rules to follow while under a Wardec that make them really easy to deal with:

  1. Stop going to High-Sec, this isn’t hard at all.
  2. Use out of alliance alts for your High-Sec needs.  No really stop going to High-Sec.
  3. If you absolutely have to go to High-Sec avoid Trade Hubs and pipe systems.
  4. If you absolutely have to go to High-Sec use an Interceptor or Covops.
  5. If you mission or mine or haul in High-Sec while at War, then you have failed at all 4 rules above and will likely lose your ship.

So pretty much life as normal for most of us in FEIGN.

We got out for another great roam the other day in the Vagabond Fleet! We wandered for awhile and got a number of ‘random’ kills before we eventually ran into a Sev3rance Zealot Fleet that was supported by some Guardians.

It was a good, albeit lopsided, fight that started with some fantastic separation and tackle work from our Command Destroyer and Interdictor pilots and then some quick thinking and good decision making from our FC. Here’s the Battle Report, it tells the story very well… https://zkillboard.com/br/78779/

Skirmishing is what FEIGN excels at and it’s only fitting that we went out for a roam the other day in one of the best skirmishing vessels in New Eden… the Vagabond.

We had a good run and racked up a number of solid kills, including some fun in HED-GP where we nabbed a Nidhoggur – not often you see a Carrier kill with 10 pilots in Sub-Capitals 🙂

 

Sounds like we’ll be heading out in the Vagabond fleet again and I’m stoked to get in on some of that action again!

I’m rolling along logging in almost daily and getting in lots of time flying around New Eden. FEIGN is creating and finding content on a consistent basis and having lots of fun in the process.

I don’t want to divulge too much information but things are looking to heat up here pretty shortly and we should get a solid run of good fights, crossing fingers we get some folk to show up to defend their assets!
