So m3 Corp left CVA last night. Most assets had been moved out of Providence in the past week which is why I had no "action reports" lately. I was making many jumps from our base in S9X to low sec and didn't want to compromise operational security any more than necessary. We already have a new home lined up and we're in the process of staging for gaining entrance to the alliance in a few days or less.
The experiment in CVA for us failed for a number of minor reasons that could have been overcome by themselves but in aggregate proved too much. Ultimately the most damaging factor was internal with real life decimating the leadership ranks of the corporation and the remaining directors and XOs getting burnt out trying to keep everything going in the meantime.
So we are taking steps to spread the load and get back to running smoothly, including myself starting to do some FCing in small fleets for gate camps and stuff to get more experienced and offer some PvP in quiet nights.
As for CVA, I won't say much other than to say there are some people really trying hard to make it work and there were flashes of "old glory" (for lack of a better word) here and there. But overall CVA is still emotionally scarred from last year's eviction at the hands of AAA and friends and there is a fundamental resistance to move wholesale into Providence and fight for it. This would be OK if the alliance was not hell-bent on planting TCUs on every exposed system in Providence. The two mindsets cannot coexist and one has to give or the alliance is doomed. We tried to lead the charge into Providence and committed the corp and its membership wholesale to S9X, but in the end it was not enough.
Despite the frustrations, I wish CVA well. There are some good people in there fighting for what they believe in and perhaps in time they will get the success they strive for.
