What Now For The South?

I'm not super up to date on alliance politics outside of my own little corner of Eve (-A- & U'K bad, Proviblob GUD!) but I'm not totally ignorant either. With Goonswarm and allies Zenith Affinity in full retreat, the regions of Delve, Querious, and Period Basis are being occupied by IT, Against ALL Authorities, Systematic Chaos, and others. The problem is that those new occupiers are all blue to each other.

Or at least, perceived blue. Was it merely an alliance of convenience while Goons were the common enemy? Will the powerhouses of IT and AAA regard each other with hostility now that they share a common border? Or will AAA be free and clear for an extended campaign against the  Holders and CVA? Its all very exciting even from a grunts point of view.

Unlike life prior to Dominion, alliances can't up and go across the cluster for temporary wars. The new Sov rules mean the bulk of pilots have to stay close to home, which means you want at least one border with a hostile entity. Makes me wonder most particularly what IT alliance will do with control of both Fountain and Delve. Will they occupy both, or leave one to fortify the other? Decisions decisions.

And is RED.Overlord a blue or red to AAA? I thought blue but I could be wrong. What about the Initiative? Curiouser and curiouser.

At the end of the day, all these questions control the ultimate fate of m3 and Providence as a whole. I eagerly await to see what the outcome of this sudden Goon collapse will be. Glad I'm not in Syndicate these days.
