Once all regions have been secured Capsuleers from Black Rise, Lonetrek and The Forge will invade Lower Tribute securing the systems between Phase 1 and Phase 2.
The Citadel will provide a blocking element along the Southern Frontier of Lower Tribute to protect against incursions from Lower Tribute into the advancing systems where Pandemic Legion would use Low Sector and Null Sector PvP Pilots to blockade the steady flow of Rookies and new corporations looking to make way into Pandemic Legion space.
A massive push of Southern High Sector and Southern Null Sector Alliances would then punch through into Tribute freeing Tribute once and for all.
What is a of major concern with the invasion of Providence by Pandemic Legion is that most are thinking that PL is going to simply pack up and leave. Because according to PL, Providence is a crap hole region that no one wants.
They are there for than just content. They are there to invade Amarr and the Ammatar Mandate Through Dital and Gamis respectively.
These two points into Providence are currently being held by PL and associates who use warp bubbles, mobile warp bubble depots and gate camps to keep High Sector Neutrals from entering into Providence territory to mine, rat and explore freely, as long as you don’t attack Providence corporation members.
With Pandemic Legion’s assets in High Sector constantly war decing any and all corporations for any reason it is clear that High Sector is also threatened by the aggressive nature of Pandemic Legion as they employ mercenaries to do their business in High Sector.
Separating Tribute from Pandemic Legion will in the councils eyes. alleviate the constant war decs being placed on High Sector corporations and will allow Rookies and Veterans alike the change to enjoy Null Sector how it should be.
