If anyone’s still deluded enough to think that Goons and PAPI actually do hate each other, that Vily actually is worried that Goons and Horde would have taken Legacy out had he not started this war, that Mittens is actually super mad that his coalition is losing etc., then the destruction of a neutral Azbel in Perimeter yesterday by members of all three coalitions should put any such idea to rest. There’s no stakes behind WWB2. Goons aren’t going away when they lose Delve, they’ll probably go evict Volta or something and go back to living in VFK when the war is over. There’s no actual stakes in this war, Vily just started it because he was bored, which should tell you something about how fat and stagnant null has become.
This war wasn’t intended to crack the blue donut if anyone had that thought in mind either. If anything, it’ll just make it stronger. Nothing will actually change in null as a result of this war. Accruing ISK will always be a superior option to meaningless fights, and it still is despite all the “fighting” that’s been happening. The cogs and gears in Oasa and Branch have never been spinning faster than they have as of late. Yes, that’s an implication and no, Mango and Sylvanas etc. don’t do it nearly as much as they do.
I guess I just find it weird that people are so invested in this conflict. There’s no real stakes behind it. Nothing will change as a result of it. It’s just sad to see all the line members getting fooled in to thinking that this is a significant moment in Eve’s history, when it really isn’t. TTT proves that as much. It’s not like highsec or lowsec can do anything about it either. They just exist to be paypigs for the blue donut. Everyone just plays to accrue ISK and nothing else. It’s pretty sad.
Of course, CCP could take some steps to alleviate this by disabling markets in hisec player structures, but they’ll never do that. Change is too hard. “Age of Chaos” but woah hey not that chaotic! We can’t risk pissing off the people that farm sanctums all day in the most risk-averse form of PvE in the entire game! Everyone else though? Might as well unsub so they can make room for the nullbloc rorqs and orcas to huff all that nocx and trit.
No real other point to this thread besides pointing out and fostering a discussion on how sad it is that people are getting so in to this conflict.
