So, a lot has changed in the last month.
EoN. is much reduced from its heyday, slimming down from 47% district control to 15%, due to the loss of TeamPlayers as a district holder in its own right, the combined efforts of the Fuck EoN Coalition, and let’s be honest, Grand Theft Auto V has played its part.
We see a few new players dipping their toes into planetary conquest, with Latinos Killers Corp and S.A.L.U.K.I gaining districts. TEST Alliance and Goonswarm Federation’s token holdings remain; one expects that holding many districts is not a strategic goal for them, so you’re more likely to see them in Faction Warfare than in PC battles.
The Southern Legion continues to chip away at any reinforcement timers in their time zone, but so far haven’t managed to take any districts from Nyain San, who recently put their hand up and formed an alliance with a massive 16% territorial control. Can they retain it? More accurately, can anyone else in their time zone take it off them?
Dust Uni remains fairly stable on 2% control, but the real surprise is the number of large land-holding corps who are unaffiliated with alliances: Valor, WTF, Outer Heaven and Ancient Exiles having almost 30% district control between them. It will be interesting to see whether that trend persists once war barge strikes are removed from planetary conquest battles. Nothing says “I have friends in high places” more than orbital strikes on tap.
After their turn as top dog a few months ago, ROFL has regrouped and remains a non-trivial player in Molden Heath. Its corps and territories position it as a strong euro timezone force, but it’s up against some strong competition outside its timezone.
League of Infamy and Public Disorder continue to hold territory, although less than last month, chipped away by a number of larger corps and alliances. Public Disorder in particular is hurting without solid support from SVER True Blood, so the bloodshed might not be over yet.
All in all, things are looking quite interesting on the ground in Molden Heath.
