Is this a real war?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a fleet op
No escape from enotsising
Open your eyes
Look up to the skies and see
I’m just a poor boy, I need no sovereignty
Because it’s easy come, easy go
index high, index low
Any place the FC goes, doesn’t really matter to me
-Opening lyrics, Fozzie Sov Rhapsody
So this just happened, two jumps from Pandemic Legion’s main staging system, 93PI-4, in the cross over between EU and US prime time, which is basically the peak of activity on any give day in New Eden.
Somehow we took a system back. Maybe PL was all off playing Overwatch today?
EC-P8R is actually kind of an important system, being a gate between null sec and low sec. I know our foes made a big deal out of capturing it from us the first time. But it has changed hands a couple of times now. Being such a gateway probably makes it harder to hold.
Of course, we’ll probably lose it tomorrow, or the next day, or this weekend, and will probably retake it again at some date after that.
I don’t want to diminish the achievements of the coalition that formed to chase us out of null sec, but this is a reminder that Fozzie Sov, and its changing from favoring defense to favoring offense, was one of their allies.
Also, we clearly haven’t given up yet. The war goes on.
