How the war in Delve was won, or more importantly lost

Each war has its winners, and its losers. While history lessons may be full of factoids for us to memorize about the winners, it’s most often the losers who determine the outcome of a given war. The same holds true in CCP’s EVE Online and for this week’s column The Mittani explains how the war in Delve was ultimately lost by the losers, rather than won by the winners

i tried to write it in pubbie speak so people like jade can understand~~~

(also i didn't write the title i blame the copy editor my version was 'Was Delve Won or Lost?' but apparently titles cant end in ??? or something

oh i wrote one last week too but i was busy being banned for posting an 'r' in a z0r chain

The Mittani's guide on how not to kill these enormous ships.

In EVE Online, the most intelligent and cunning gamers are those that succeed. Although the members of Goonswarm have been called everything from sociopaths to conniving geniuses, there's no doubt that their antics are both ambitious and humorous. Now the Goonswarm's master of spies, The Mittani, has agreed to write a column for Ten Ton Hammer on both the Goonswarm's actions and the crazy stories of EVE Online in general. For his first column, the Mittani gives use his how-to guide on "How Not to Kill a Titan."

Just read both of them, well written, very entertaining and near as I can tell (from my unbiased onlooker's viewpoint) completely accurate.

You were actually nicer to BoB/KenZoku than I would've been, f.i. didn't mention how they'd lost all (7?) of the large-scale engagements in Delve until they switched to their strategy of waiting until goon participation dropped o_O

The first article is particularly insightful, re: wars being lost by losers, not won by winners. Most of the awesome things that happen in Eve wouldn't happen, if someone wasn't stupid enough to let them happen. Good writing, Mittani.

true dat but bragging about winning the regular engagements seems kind of silly when they got disbanded, released their own director boards and then got camped into a station for 3+ weeks vOv
