Cloud Ring Invasion

While I've spent August recuperating and regenerating my batteries, things in EVE have been going a little weird in my social circles.

Take a look at this map:

Not only is my little alliance, FEDUP, on the map for sov in a null sec region in U65-CN near the top middle, our Gallente Militia allies WANGS controll 12 systems in the north east, BEBOP 7 systems in the south east, and GVMA controls DY-F70 in the south middle.

Before I took my break we were playing around in Cloud Ring because faction warfare has been ignored for a long time and suffered from unintended consequences of the new structures. As the group of some (or all) of the main Gallente Militia alliances made inroads into the residents there, we began to take sovereignty and plant our flags.

It was surprising coming back and seeing how much of Cloud Ring has been taken and the area seems to be heating up as evicted and threatened residents fight back and call in reinforcements from neighbours.

I'm ambivalent about it all. On one hand, I'm happy for the success and excitement the alliance and allies have found in the region, but I find my heart lies in low sec in general and the warzone in particular. I'm hoping that this respite from our constant attention has given some breathing room to our Caldari opposite numbers and allowed them to start opposing us again. I don't know if I'm ready to move back to null sec...
