Have a look if you want to know what sov warfare is like... thousands of players helping each other out. Taking ownership of whole constellations, systems, stations, POSs, moons, planets, NPC space. All of it!

Its a stategy game and a game about morale that goes on over months..getting people to show up , able to afford decent ships and fit them correctly...having keeping a large group of men(with a dabbling of women) from getting at each others throats.. for leaders to command enough respect over months and weeks to have people follow command orders, a need for different types of leaders to prepare and execute a war effort ... stratic command (overseeing dimplomacy, and propaganda ) logistical command (to keep, liquid ozone on hand, web forrums, jabber and team speak running), and field commanders(making the split second calls of where to warp portions of the fleet, what order to jump in.. where and when bubbles should go up...where to send the pet shock troops..etc ).


Oh .. maybe you think pvp is primarily about how quickly people can move their fingers on the key board, not long term stategic war ... I'd think thexbox or a fps shooter and you'll get more of that (although the outcome of battles does often ride on a quick reacting tackler field awareness to get out of a bubble quickest or target and jam a one last guy in range thats locking you.)

^^^ All that.

As well as the economical side of things... moon mining, T2 production, selling things in High sec, moving things to nul sec, commissioning long term mining expeditions (several months for example).

Ship production. Reimbursements for lost ships. Staging areas for building up your forces. Home Defense fleets... as said, thousands of players, many alliances, all working together.

And blob warfare at its finest, 800 friendly ships Vs 800 hostiles. Who would win?

Titan fleets annihilating each other, where super carriers barely get a look in.

******ed thread. I feel sorry for OP if he actually enjoys sov warfare.

As previously stated its not even pvp, what 300 guys on grid and you scramble to find called primary on your spreadsheet..err overview, and when you get primaried you go down in like 10 seconds. Plus the lag, plus the structure shooting. Its boring as hell, you think your having fun but I think your just trying to convince yourself that you are having fun so you don't feel bad.

As things are you can either AFK cloak in someone's system or drop hordes of virtually indestructible supercaps and completely whelp their sov.

Welcome to 0.0, the dangerous place where territory is supposed to be fought over and viciously contested.



I'd like to challenge Greyscale to count the number of alliances/coalitions that have been destroyed due to actual combat through the sov system versus ones that have imploded due to internal drama.

Oh, whaddya know, pretty much all of them implode due to internal drama. :shocker: Neutral

After 3 weeks of 'carebearing' I have almost a trillion extra in my wallet and not a single e-peen supercap to my name. Yes multiple trade and exploration alts pay that much. My excuse to the alliance leaders? I have little time to grind for isk and can only afford an insured rr archon. Wink My condolences to the mules and cannon fodder.

It's not pvp if they don't come to defend. Then it gets exciting. Twisted Evil

Pretty much!

The most skill eve pvp requires is probably either targetting someone in time to tackle them (Ok so you need fairly decent reflexes but nothing compared to an FPS) or maybe probing out someone to get a warpin which is more just learning how to probe stuff out quickly and isn't really that hard.

I guess no one seems to understand that by taking one of the richest regions in Eve allows you to:
- Buy new ships easier
- Build ships
- Join roaming gangs for expeditions
- Build super caps
- Operate HD fleets
- gain experience in solo PVP
- WH raid ops
- gain experience as an FC
- Get up to ******ed shenannigans like jita lock downs
- Suicide ops
- small gang warfare with occasional hot drops

... do i need to continue? or are you too busy running another L4?

You people are getting way too enthusiastic about becoming concord renters.

But don't worry, that feeling will subside and will certainly be replaced by the feeling of dread and despair at the sight of an sbu once the roaming mothership fleet has returned home.

The old pos warfare was better tbh, much more fun and less timers.

But yeah some good fights "CAN" occur around timer ends.
