Winter Co is a very special Coalition with very special purposes. They can lose stuff, most of all, but they’ll not lost their basement. Due to their time zone and subculture aspects, they’ll be able to keep their members stacked together. Whatever can happen, their members will not become the ‘night guards’ for other powerblocs.
The XIX is in a bad situation. The place, where they have been to settle and rebuild, is heavily invaded by everybody opposed to Legacy. Everybody wish to turn them into some sort of ‘meat shield’ in this war.The Fortizar resources, gifted with Outposts ‘turn coat’, can be easily and cheaply thrown whenever they’ll gone. GG CCP. Nice help for the weak Alliances.
Due to my information, like too many of XIX members don’t trust to their leaders. Damn, who can believe, that an Alliance like XIX can be ambushed like it happened in C-LTXS. They can just log off during this war and that all. But many of them want to participate in it. Therefore, they can use a Kutuzov’s tactic:
When Napoleon invaded Russia in 1812, Michael Andreas Barclay de Tolly (then Minister of War) chose to follow the scorched earth principle and retreat rather than to risk a major battle. His strategy aroused grudges from most of the generals and soldiers, notably Prince Pyotr Bagration. As Alexander had to choose a new general, there was only one choice: Kutuzov. He found popularity among the troops mainly because he was Russian (most of the generals commanding Russian troops at that time were foreign), he was brave, he had proven himself in battle, strongly believed in the Russian Orthodox Church, and he looked out for the troops’ well-being. The nobles and clergy also regarded Kutuzov highly. Therefore, when Kutuzov was appointed commander-in-chief in late August and he joined the army on 29 August 1812, the nation greeted Kutuzov with delight. Only Alexander, repulsed by Kutuzov’s physique and irrationally holding him responsible for the defeat at Austerlitz, did not celebrate Kutuzov’s commission.
Within two weeks Kutuzov decided to give major battle on the approaches to Moscow. He withdrew the troops still further to the east, deploying them for the upcoming battle. Two huge armies clashed near Borodino on 7 September 1812 in what has been described as the greatest battle in human history up to that date, involving nearly a quarter of a million soldiers. The result of the battle was inconclusive, with near a third of both the French and the Russian army killed or wounded. After a conference at the village of Fili, Kutuzov fell back on the strategy of his predecessor: withdraw in order to preserve the Russian army as long as possible.
This came at the price of losing Moscow, whose population was evacuated. Having retreated along the Kaluga road and replenished his munitions, he forced Napoleon into retreat in the Battle of Maloyaroslavets and blocked his way through Kaluga. This allowed Kutuzov to force Napoleon to retreat via Mozhaisk and Smolensk, the devastated route of his advance that Napoleon had wished to avoid. The old general’s cautious pursuit of the retreating Grand Army evoked much criticism, but ultimately only a small remnant (93,000 of the 690,000 men) of the Grand Army returned to Prussian soil alive. Hence the Russian general’s caution was thoroughly vindicated.
In EVE it can be applied next way: NC/PL and that Holy Stuff is deploying in Tenerifis - they move to Tenal and Branch and fu-ck with those ratters, the NC/PL is moving back - they moving back to Tenerifis. Anyway, a Subcapital fleet is much easier to redeploy - Fozzy SOV advantages.
