In a ping sent out minutes ago on Jabber, Goonswarm alliance leader the Mittani announced that the Imperium will cut short their campaign against the Pandemic Family of alliances (PanFam). This move comes in response to the sudden and unabating onslaught of Vigilant Tyrannos forces across nullsec. It is unknown at this time how many structures have been attacked throughout New Eden, or if the Drifter attacks will continue, but at least one GM has apparently confirmed that the behavior is not an error in the code.
PACK YOUR SHIT AND PREPARE TO WITHDRAW TO DELVE: This is stupid as hell but upon further discussion we will take CCP at their word and not assume this nonsense is a bug. As you guys know we were planning on fucking off soon after SH1 (as per the Init SOTA which leaked), but I’d hoped to mess around in Malpais a bit before we went home… but whatever. It’s a good thing we burned the candle at both ends and nuked SH1 before this shit happened, but if ~generic pve bad guy vigilant tyrannos~ wants to clean up the drones for us, hey. At least the Drifters undock.
ORGANIZED MOVE OPS WILL COME SOON (tm) – BEGIN THE PROCESS OF GETTING YOUR SHIT TOGETHER – DON’T MOVE ON YOUR OWN LIKE AN IDIOT – WE WILL HAVE AN EMERGENCY FIRESIDE TO ANSWER QUESTIONS (when we have more fucking answers) IN ONE HOUR – AT 1:00 EVE
:frogsiren: :frogsiren: THIS IS NOT A DRILL, WE DO NOT WANT TO DO THIS, THIS IS A BOOT.INI/MONOCLE LEVEL FUCKUP AND WE MUST SECURE OUR LINE’S ASSETS IN DELVE AND WAIT OUT THE STORM :frogsiren: :frogsiren:
let’s take ccp at their word for now and that this is an invasion feature
bad news: we must go home (but we were planning on that anyway as sh1 is done)
good news: this will absolutely ruin 50%+ of the structures in null, but especially those of our enemies who can’t defend and have had their willpower drained by our attacks
i wanted to purge malpais but if mr tyrannos will do the work for us, fuck it
