How do you claim a system?
I assume you have to have an alliance?

Do you just kill all the other POS-es in the "wanted" system and it's considered "claimed", or do you have to write some sort of mail to ccp (or to who?) and say "we killed em all, it's ours now"?

Basicly i'd like to know all the details you have to do or have to "own" a system or region..

Yeah, except it's rubbish.


You get sovereignty ONLY when:

1. you are in a corp that is in an alliance,
2. you set up and online at least one pos in the system in question, and set it to soveriegnty claiming mode,
3. there are no other alliances with pos in that system,
OR if there are, that alliance has fewer active pos then you do of the same size and none of a size bigger then your pos is (large wins over medium wins over small, regardless of how many smaller versus how many larger),
OR, you have an online pos of a bigger size then the other alliance (numbers of pos's don't matter in this situation)
OR all other alliance-owned pos's in the system in question that are in excess of the pos count your alliance has there have been put into reinforced mode or have been destroyed or have been inactivated by other means (spying/sabotage)


Sovereignty over a system changed automatically at the daily downtime, but focing a change to the sovereignty (i.e., taking someone elses sovereignty from them) by the use of onlining more POS's then they have in system takes 5 days. Taking over sovereignty through the use of force has no 5-day waiting period.

Whoever has the 'right' to sovereignty at the end of downtime either on any day (in case of force used) or at the end of a 5-day period (which starts again if you lose the leading position in a system somewhere during those 5 days afaik) will have the sovereignty after that downtime untill the end of the next downtime when sovereignty is established anew using the same calculation.

the corp i used to be in had three POS in a system and we managed to claim soverenty for our alliance
one was a large POS
was that the deciding factor in only using three POS ?
cause i seen a few times about the 5 POS which puzzles me a bit

Cause its crap Very Happy You do need to have ALL claiming POSes up for AT LEAST 5 days + a downtime in order for it to switch sov to you.

Thank god for Rod & his explaining how to claim sov. It has been a question which I have been trying to find an answer for a while Sad CCP as usual have been bloody useless over this topic & I am sure there are more Urban Myths floating about out there, regarding what is required to claim sov. Anyway, thanks again for clearing up the muddy waters ...... Laughing Onwards to an Outpost .... gulp
