CO2 Keepstar Under Siege

Rhom Achensa 2018-07-13

The staging Keepstar owned by Circle-Of-Two was put into armor reinforcement early Friday, as Imperium fleets continued their march across Fade.

In a stunning surprise attack just days into the war, a bevy of titans backed by Baltec Megathrons peeled off the Keepstar’s shield. No one formed to contest the attack, with only the Keepstar lobbing bombs and activating its doomsday weapon. The armor timer leaves an awkward decision for PanFam and Guardians of the Galaxy: Do they form Saturday to repel the Imperium forces in DW-T2I, or do they continue their planned assault on the Test Alliance Please Ignore Keepstar in the south?

Both timers are within two hours of each other. The opposition will have a day to make their decision.

The Mittani has called for vengeance in the northern war, targeting alliances that the coalition fought during the Casino War in 2015 and 2016, including the turncoat alliance CO2. Sorties across Fade have already led to several major reinforcement timers, but the CO2 Keepstar is the most significant so far.

With this latest development, along with the placement of a forward Keepstar in nearby Cloud Ring, the Imperium’s commitment on the northern front is clear.

    All over Eve, nerds are stock piling cheetos and Mountain Dew so they may once again beat off on their pixel victories.

      Yes. I’m doing a big shop this evening so I can hunker down for the weekend.

    But in the Co2 recording Gigx said that he will fight no matter what. Also Gigx was quick to blame his “allies” (or should I say masters) for failing to stop The Imperium’s Keepstar from onlining in 6RCQ. A fight he says that if he was in charge he would have taken. Nice to see that Gigx admits that he is not in charge though. Finally a bit of honesty from him. The funniest bit about this is Gigx calling everyone else weak and a pet yet his alliance has bounced from one generous benefactor the the next. First it was The Imperium until he turned traitor. Then it was The Legacy until surprise surprise he turned traitor again. Now it is PanFam he is turning upon. Almost as if there is a pattern of behaviour here. But once he burns this bridge we may well see the end of Co2 as no one else will want to prop them up any more. Time will tell.

    Meanwhile Dorkness are totally not evaccing assets. This will mean that resupply is unlikely to happen. As who wants to invest in the re-supply of ships when there is a real risk of losing the investment or at least having to pay for asset safety? Sort Dragon has made an appearance though to offer morale speeches. Something that I am sure his allies will appreciate. But perhaps they would appreciate Sort actually forming a fleet or two instead.

    PanFam as a whole are in a total spin. Lady Scarlet is trying to say that The Imperium is the new BoB. PanFam controlled news outlets are straining at any pretence of neutrality. Some poor fool is even trying to write about nerfing rorqual’s and defending the renting model that supports the PanFam elite.

    The absolute best bit about this though is that we are on only something like day 2 of the offensive by The Imperium. I for one am very keen that this war is as drawn out as possible. After all The Imperium considers itself to be the best of allies and the worst of enemies.

    My guess is they leave the CO2 keep to die, as it’s only a meat-bag to them.

    So, what happened? Well, Goonswarm didn’t even show up to attack the CO2 keepstar because they forgot about cyno jammers, and meanwhile Test barely gave any resistance and lost their keepstar. I smell some propaganda…
