The World Ark in Otela has been forced to flee by the forces of Electus Matari and Phoenix Naval Systems. This is the second World Ark to be forced off and the first to be forced off before final liminality.
As the system falls further into second liminality, it seems that the defeat suffered in the Ark Assault Vector hasn’t massively disrupted the Triglavian assault on the system. I can only hope that the defeat of this Ark helps evacuation efforts in the system as was the case in Angymonne.
Many of us hoped that the defeat of an Ark would heavily impede the Triglavian invasion, but despite what appears to be a minor setback for them, they’re still harvesting the star in Otela.
The best strategy for overcoming liminality is still to win the Stellar Reconnaissance phase of the invasions and avoid it altogether and EDI has begun to struggle with some priority systems recently.
The fight goes on against the invaders, but we’ve still yet to pull a system out of liminality once the Triglavians have begun harvesting the star.
The road ahead is going to be a rocky one. The Triglavians are capturing more systems and resources as time goes on and show no signs of slowing down. Despite the hardships, I hope everyone trying to stand against the Triglavians will continue to do what they can in the efforts. Even in loss, we must do what we can. Today, we defeated an Ark. Hopefully some people are saved by our efforts. We did what we could.
