Tribute’s iHubs Wiped Clean


As of the June 24 all northern allied iHubs, which where installed before the start of the invasion, have been destroyed. The major hubs protecting the last Keepstar as well as the northern end of Tribute fell. This means all iHub upgrades for both mining and ratting have been destroyed and removed.

The removal of all of the iHubs removes the ability to online navigation structures, as well as cyno jammers, giving the invading forces free rein to the entire region.

With this in mind, the final northern staging Keepstar in SH1 is in armor timer and due in early morning Eve time on the 25th, as well as two Sotiyos. There’s  no evidence of northern forces planning to contest these timers after the move ops were made public last week.

With Tribute cleared of primary targets focus is shifting more to Vale, which has seen strikes to hit key structures, shutting down operations in the region as the invading forces push further east.

The Imperium could also start destroying the TCUs in Tribute, lowering the flag of NCPL in the region, or allow them to keep it up at the cost of 10m ISK per system per day.

  • the impact of the third paragraph would have been greater if the Keepstar had’t been dead for hours before this post appeared.

      I do agree. I found out about the ihubs late last night eve timewhen it was written. I added the part about the KS just to help flesh it out.

      • Maybe somebody needs to look at your site connectivity? The story didn’t pop up in RSS until after 17:00 UTC (and is time stamped as 10:56 UTC there) and it didn’t hit Twitter until well after 19:30 UTC.

        The next story, about the Keepstar itself, still hasn’t populated in your RSS feed as of my writing this.
