At approximately 1900 EVE on February 17, the Tranquility Trading Consortium complex in Ignoitton was assaulted by a force of Snuffed Out titans. The Keepstar, Sotiyo and Tatara are all currently reinforced, with second reinforcement times of 1702, 2012, and 1943 EVE respectively on Feb 18. At present, it seems unlikely that the complex will be defended, and as such, all services offered by the Ignoitton structures will cease to be available.
This possibility was noted by Vily in a reddit post at approximately 0500 EVE on Feb 17, in which he suggested that the complex would likely be attacked “in a few days”, following a ‘negotiation’ between a Snuff representative and Vily. This negotiation was described by Vily as Snuff ‘reneging on their previous agreements’, and the chat logs can be viewed in this pastebin. Vily also admits in this reddit post that any defence that could be mounted against Snuff would be unlikely to succeed “in the short or long term”. As a result, any individuals using the complex should evacuate their assets or expect asset safety to kick in at some point in the coming week.
This Snuffed Out aggression comes only weeks after they attacked and destroyed the Sixth Empire freeport complex in Basgerin, an event which saw many disparate groups fail to defend both a Keepstar and Sotiyo. With Snuff suggesting that they “simply cannot tolerate a freeport Keepstar in their back garden” when talking to Vily, it appears that Snuff are taking advantage of the war in Beeitnam to once again establish themselves as the big fish in the small pond that is Low-Sec space.
