    So I log in after about 10 years, and I'm in Delve and a couple of jumps away from Goonswarm-controlled space? That seems... ridiculous. Did it all come full circle?

    When I was a child, I had a fever...

    Hello!

    My EVE character’s name is Nexris and I am applying to get back into Merch Industrial. I was also in Merch back maybe 10 years ago and now that it's gone free to play I'm trying it out again. Look forward to tackling ships and exploding over and over again like the good old days.

    My EVE character’s name is Adilily Arzi and I am applying to Merch Industrial. A reason that I'm a special snowflake is because I love PAX, well PAX Prime at least, I go every year. Also I love spaceships, specifically carriers. Also also I am being sponsored by Ciaphis Kain.

    We continue to not only vastly outmine the rest of the galaxy, but we also continue to outproduce The Forge, home of galactic trading hub Jita. We're still in peacetime, but NC. and friends are poking around in neighboring Querious, so if you want a time of peace, but with opportunities to go on real fleets to learn how things work, now is a great opportunity. See instructions in the OP for inquiries about joining MRCHI!

    Heya Merch, @Baidol in particular.

    I last flew in 2012. I'm feeling The Itch again.

    Would any of you be willing to give me a crash update on the state of the game and state of the goonswarm?

    How are things at the moment, has the game changed for the better in the past eight years? Is there scope to play just casually? How's Merch doing?

    After GSF's eviction from the North in the Casino War in 2016, we moseyed down to Delve. We weren't pursued and GSF is now the largest ratting, mining, and industrial powerhouse in nullsec. The Imperium, anchored by GSF, owns Fountain, Delve, Querious and, through coalition partner Initiativedot, parts of Cloud Ring. The North is held by Guardians of the Galaxy anchored by Darknessdot and Panfam (PL, NCdot, PH). The south and southeast are owned by Legacy coalition anchored by TEST. The east and northeast were recently pried from the hands of the Drone Region Federiation (XiX, et. al.) and now belong to a series of small coalitions in the ensuing power vacuum.

    Jump fatigue, which restricts how often capitals and supercapitals can jump, limits the ability to project power. Supercapital fleets are still massive and the primary measure of power, but are largely relegated to staying near home as a consequence. The current sovereignty system is Aegis sovereignty (usually referred to as Fozziesov) where a ship uses an entosis link module to "hack" a sov target for several minutes. Sov fights are typically fleets of artillery claws alphaing entosis ships and, since interceptors are nullified and cannot be caught by bubbles, the fight ends only once someone gives up or manages to boson (AOE titan doomsday weapon) or smartbomb an interceptor fleet. This is not a particularly fun system.

    As of last month, stations in non-npc nullsec are gone. All living in now done via citadels, which are player-deployed structures that are, essentially, stations and are designed to replace POS and stations. There are several classes of citadels with each class having a specific role (living/defense, production, mining/refining). Citadels have a reinforcement system (initial, armor, destruction) similar to the old Dominion sov system. Yes, that means your home that holds all your stuff can be destroyed. In that case, your belongings enter "asset safety" and are, depending on the situation, transported to a different location and may involve paying isk value equal to a percentage of your belongings' value.

    Skill points are now a fungible asset as skill extractors allow you to extract skillpoints and then someone can inject those skillpoints into a second character with diminishing returns depending on how many skillpoints that character already has. Month-old rorqual (now the dominant mining ship due to changes) and titan pilots are not uncommon these days. There have been a number of new ships and ship classes, ship rebalances, and new game mechanics (planetary interaction, invention, moon mining) since 2012 in addition to a large quantity of quality-of-life improvements. The game is better than it was eight years ago and MRCHI is still a jabber-based corporation in a jabber-based alliance.

    WAR HAS COME

    The Holy Rental Empire coalition, after evicting the Drone Region Federation coalition from the northeast, has set its sights on the Immensea region in the southeast, held by the Legacy coalition headed by TEST. The HRE is supported by the Winter Coalition, a collection of primarily Asian alliances based in the east, and now Pandemic Legion, who moved their super fleet, ratcheting up tensions in the southeast of the galaxy. We, in turn, have moved our super fleet north while Pandemic Legion is away from home. The latest galaxy spanning conflict is about to erupt. This means an updated OP and a call for pilots who want to see what EVE is all about. There is no better time to learn the game than during a war! If you are curious, read the OP and/or ask questions in this thread. Want to enlist? Instructions are in the OP.

    I will be traveling for much of July, so I may not respond promptly if you PM me. If you have questions, please post them in this thread and other corporation members will be able to assist you.

    We'll see how things play out. Incidentally, we don't need to reconquer Deklein for people to retrieve their stuff. All sov nullsec stations got converted into citadels last month, so you can asset safety all of your possessions and have them appear in lowsec 20 days later. You'll still need to extract them from lowsec, but you'll have access to them.

    THE RECONQUISTA OF THE NORTH BEGINS

    We need a place for our deployed super fleet to hang out, so we deployed a keepstar, which is the only citadel capable of housing the largest ships in the game. We brought the big party favors.

    THE WAR CONTINUES

    Three days ago, the X47L-Q keepstar, home of NC., came out of its initial reinforcement timer. Both sides dropped their supercap fleets, leading to 500+ titans in the battle and ending with 56 of them dead. Our supercarriers were used as heavy tackle for the opposing titans because why not. Hilarious numbers of dreads and FAXes died. Shit got real.

    The keepstar was successfully reinforced and the final timer comes out next week. Want to get in on the action? Sign up today!

    I was there, down in the enemy titan blob in MY NYX tackling them so they couldn't immediately retether after a DD. That's how rich we are now. We use supercarriers as disposable heavy tackle.

    (I was also at the 6RC defense posted about, also in MY NYX, hazing Gila's with fighters).

    VICTORY IN THE NORTH

    BONUS HILARIOUS HICTOR GAMBLE

    750 titans in total across both sides made it to the field. 17 (possibly more) dead hostile titans to a single dead friendly titan. The fight kicked off with the opposing side attempting a double driveby boson doomsday to wipe a friendly battleship fleet from the field. They partially succeeded and one of the two titans (a Ragnarok) got out, but the Leviathan of the pair was caught and destroyed. With first blood drawn, the hostiles were then unable to assemble sufficiently coordinated doomsdays to kill our titans, leading to an initial 8-1 lead in our favor, which ballooned to nearly 20 when the hostile supers attempted to extract.

    The war continues! Sign up today!

    Sent a PM but wanted to add it here also as I'm an over achiever....

    Hey, Long time off and on member here, getting ready to get back into Eve. Member of MerchI since 2006/7 timeframe took a break then re-upped in 2012 in time for the First Ever Burn Jita event, ended up on the blooper reel in that fiasco...lol. Stuck around for a year or so then had to take another hiatus. Been taking care of family raising 3 kiddos but they are all just about grown now, got into some No Mans Sky recently and decided i really missed Eve so loaded up the account last night ran through the tutorial again to refresh my brain and am ready to get back into the thick of things. Goliantia is my Eve character, its still my original Char since 2006 so i have a ton of skills learned, think i was going for a Dread when i last left, will have to double check. I tried to go to the old MerchI website http://www.forums.merchindustrial.org/ but it seems to be down now, is there a new one? Let me know what i need to do, look forward to flying with my old mates again.

    Thanks,
    Goli
