Its usually no surprise when the name of a station on providence changes. In fact, it seems like one changes almost everyday. But this one caught me by surprise. Chribbas Cottage Unity Station, is it real? Looking at the info, sure enough the holding corp was an "otherworld."

So I fired off an evemail to chribba hoping that the man had a second to spare me. Sure enough, Cribba responded to me almost immediately. As it turns out, UK wanted to make a nullsec trade hub and they decided Chribba would the best choice to operate such a thing. Awesome.

So all you other proviblock people, whats your opinion on the matter? Do you think this is as cool as I do? Despite the fact that this means there will probably be alot more competition (although im sure this thread won't help), I think this is an awesome idea. Although I guess this does mean the end of my monopoly of the local market....

As a trader and ex-CVA (alt) member, I'm not going to lie, I miss being able to dock at the 50 plus stations. Before the great burning of providence, it wasnt uncommon to see 20-30 people docked in 9uy, so I think UK's choice in stations is great. I also hope that Chribba keeps the name Unity Station, seeing as how that is the original name (pretty sure, that was before my time) before CVA took the station years ago. All in all I'd say this is the perfect place for a nullsec trade hub, assuming the locals allow Chibba to keep it. Which I hope they do.

Hey Flying Dangerous, I guess this means you wont have to deal with me that much longer.

Sincerely a Chribba fanboi

Just to clarify, DK/UK had nothing to do with this.

The providence holding alliances decided that chribba was the natrual choice and begain talks to give it to him. When DK found out the first thing they did was tried to extort him out of 30 bil for the system.

It was DK's intention prior to this to give the system to BDEAL, who in turn after talking with the rest of provi was going to hand it over to chribba.

Part of the attempt at extorting Chribba was that they wanted him to claim that this was all DK's idea. When the truth is this is something that WE (the rest of the provi bloc) have been trying to make happen for a long time.

While it really does not matter, I do find it kind of pathetic that DK feels the need to fluff their ego's claiming responsibility for this, The rest of provi is behind chribba 100% and DK can go **** themselves for trying to make chribba pay 30 bil for a system they couldn't protect. Shame on you DK, shame...

As a neighbor to 9UY its fine by me. Provi is about PEW PEW and you need ships and mods to do that. Having a ďHubĒ close by will be good for both trade and for new targets.

As anyone who lives in Provi knows itís a very interesting region where blues and reds can change on a daily basis. Its about smaller entities that can form up to make large fleets when called on. Its about keeping PVP "smaller ish" and when small pvp is threatened and sov is on the line reds change to blues.

The only difference now is DK/ old UK used to run this and lay down the rules now its just more of a democracy now as I see it. Its kind of like the pirate code where you can bend the rules but donít break them and try to keep it respectful.

So I think 9UY is being put into good hands and the right decision was made. I am no Cribba fanboi but I think he will make for the best 3rd party to run that system and keep it fair for all Provi.

Except that this possibly has some null sec forces to back it up. There are apparently people out there who have asked Chribba to manage this station and presumeably they will also be willing to protect the system should it come under attack.

My question is if Chribba is being paid to do this, i.e. is someone financially interested in protecting this investment?

Unless he's willing to fork out a truly massive amount of merc fees then it'll be as short-lived as before. There are far too many bored supercap pilots for this to be kept safe by the confederate states of profldence.

Orphenshadow, why are you so bitter? Smile

I brokered the deal. Here are the facts:

We intended to gift 9UY to BDEAL because of all your help during the provi civil war. Thanks again.

We found out that provi intended to turn around and sell 9UY to Chribba. It's pretty awful to sell a station that we just gave you without telling us. Especially since 9UY was ours, in every sense of the word, since we built it years ago and just recently took it back from CVA.

But having Chribba own 9UY and run it as a freeport market hub was a fantastic idea (props for that), so we decided to cut out the greedy middleman and sell it to him directly on the cheap (far less than the number you quoted). Chribba told us that provi was going to give it to him for free, which surprised us, so we did the same.

I wish Chribba the best of luck in 9UY. The system is perfect for a market hub and letting a neutral party hold it should reduce political tension. At least until somebody gets greedy and tries to take it. Wink

How does it feel Chribba, to be surrounded by at least 129,045,100 units of plain veldspar and call it your own!
