It has been nearly 10 years since the Empires have declared war. Caldari and Amarr locked in a battle verses Gallente and Minmatar. Over this period of time we have seen countless lives lost and many trillions of ISK worth of assets destroyed. Also during this time we have seen the emboldenment of many of the pirate factions of New Eden, with some of them going so far as to launch attacks within “High Security” Space. Whats more, we have encountered new and still not understood threats such as the Drifters.
The changing dynamic of power threatens the core worlds in a way that has never before seen since the introduction of Capsuleer technology. I would call upon the four main empires of New Eden to set aside this nearly decade long conflict and work to reforge the bonds of peace, so that these other threats can be given their proper attention and commitment of resources.
To those who serve or have served in the militias however, your task is still not finished. With these new threats, we must be ever vigilant and continuously train and prepare to face these tasks. Therefore I would call upon the empires to reclassify the contested areas that have been fought over for so long as jointly shared systems, which the militias can use to conduct wargames, to continue to hone their skills and earn recognition within their respective empires ranks, so that when the time is right, they can use those skills to strike a decisive blow against whatever faction may threaten us in the future, be it pirate, drifter, sleeper, or some other yet undiscovered threat.
Empires of New Eden, I implore you to seek peace. Caldari State, Gallente Federation, Minmatar Republic and the Amarr Empire, all four of you have forged an organization that has to this day stood against the test of time, However I fear if you continue down this road, your respective organizations will be unprepared when the next threat reveals itself and it may be then that the capsuleers who you have relied on for so long to maintain the balance, may be unable to succeed. Together united alongside us capsuleers I believe we can succeed against any foe.
Tl-dr : War has gone on long enough with no real gain for the empires, Peace should be declared so a period of recovery can begin and lead to a greater period of prosperity. The current Faction Warfare system can be adjusted slightly to represent this and call it a wargame rather than a faction war. No Mechanics really need to be adjusted so anyone who is still participating in these can still continue to enjoy them as is. Though this progression of the EVE story could also open up new mechanics and challenges for those who participate in them. I just think the Empire Wars have gone on for far too long and its time to move forward in peace.
