I am almost completely indifferent to these invasions. I think the main reason this is would be because it is unlikely I would be able to participate in any battle that the outcome of would matter to me at all.
The invasions of a system are over fairly fast, at least the ones near me, and the COVID-19 pandemic has me hella tired. I would like it if battles over systems would drag on for some minimum number of days such that people had more time to fight over their favorite stars. I consider myself aligned with EdenCom from a roleplaying perspective, but from a game mechanics perspective I prefer the Triglavians because I tend to favor any change that disrupts big industry or consolidation of the game economy into one region of space.
Between the ambivalence and the lack of time, I find I can’t really be arsed to do anything but read about it. The systems can literally go either way and I would just adapt to whatever conditions happen to be present. I live in a blue star ice system in highsec, but I am plenty capable of mining ice outside of highsec which means the change would just mean less competition for me.
I appreciate the Empires and would like to come to their defense, but I wish I could do it selectively or that I had an option to fight for something other than preserving the status quo that I wasn’t happy with to begin with.
I know you do not agree with my point of view, and I do not expect you to feel any differently after reading this than before (if you read it). I just thought you might appreciate hearing what I believe to be an unusual perspective on the invasion since you seem to be disposed to analyze things from all sides. Maybe someone will catch wind of it and mull it over for the next event. Can’t hurt, anyway, I guess.
