Blackwater Alliance in in a bit of Flux at the moment.

Ever since the pirates Mugen Industries moved into Sukanan constellation, we've been frustrated trying to deal with them due to time zone issues. Being a Japanese corp they are strong in the time around downtime while we are strong exactly 12 hours from that. It means we can't put pressure to force them out but they can still send their probers into the constellation, find the unaware ratter/missioner/complex runner and take them out in a sudden strike. We've lost a couple ships like this, our neighbours many more. Not to mention the morning gate camps making getting into the constellation a bit of a pain.

As such we have moved our casual operations out of the area. What I mean by that is our downtime mission running that we do when our latest war is finished and our next one has not started. On top of that, a lot of the corp is doing wormholes in long term stays. The upshot is that our presence in the low sec pocket has dropped considerably, enough to the point where we are questioning if its time to consider our options in terms of where to live.

And to further muddy the waters, a couple of the inactive / low participation corps in our alliance have left recently to find their own path. So there is some existenial soul searching going on at the top levels of the alliance. On the plus side, m3 is still strong and getting stronger with an effort afoot to get more people into a claimed wormhole system for group activities (which I'm a big fan of).

Time will tell. I'm confident that everything will work out for the best and the corp with its strong core leadership will prevail.
