TLD; Plans for an invasion to a C5/C2
This is my first and perhaps only Game of Thrones reference, but in this situation it couldn’t be more accurate.
The term “Iron Price” for those living under a rock, refers to paying for something with force or steel. We, SUSU will be taking a wormhole, ships, and livelihood from another group of people. They will be none too happy about it.
Operation ‘Iron Price’ is needed for us to grow as a premier pvp wormhole corp. We bring the word of Bob. We bring his will, we are his followers and children. Chaos, destruction and the will to say ‘Fuck it, I’m going in IN’ are our call signs. Jim can’t contain us any longer, sally has taken all she can stand and that bitch is plain worn out!
We are moving.
Our target as it has been eluded to for months now, is a C5 static C2. These holes are rare, their occupants defend them fiercely. We will be taking one or explode trying.
We will employ every trick in the book and invent some new ones, we won’t pull punches and don’t expect our advisories to hold back either.
Even if we lose, even if we don’t get what we need done, done. We will remain respectful to our advisories. They are put here for our content. We are the content providers to break up their lives. This is our gift to them. They may curse us when we win, or laugh our failures, but I say this NOW. We will remain respectful!
NO shit talking, no null sec spurge lording… We will be honest and matter of fact. We have come to our targets with no less apology than a tornado to a trailer park.
The operation will be broken down in phases.
1. Removal of assets from Jim.
2. The scout. We will find the correct target of Bobs will.
3. The seeding of dreds/carriers.
This begins TODAY! The gradual removal of all assets from Jim. I don’t care where you put it, but anything and everything needs to be brought to K-space, including alts. We are moving out! If you are logged on, you need to be sorting your shit out. Some of us will take longer than others to move out. If you are done, you can begin phase 2, yourself.
POS Phobia will be left standing. Once all assets have been removed from Sketchy, it will be torn down and shipped to K-space to be used for Phase 4; Invasion. Phobia POS will contain a skeleton crew to maintain till the sale of Jim and all its POCO can be completed.
This begins for everyone after phase one is completed, no timeframe because it’s going to be different for everyone.
The scout; We will spread across the EVE universe seeking out a target for our invasion. We will scout. EVERYONE will scout in one way or another. You will help us find our new home. K-space as horrible as it is, will be our launching platform. We will come across targets that will need to be killed, and we will kill them from high sec.
Use whatever means possible to find the target hole. Locator agents, wormhol.es, recruitment forums, fake reddit posts, search engines… friends of friends… other outside corps who make nights of rolling hole after hole… HOLD NOTHING BACK!
As a reward to our scouts, in true SUSU form… If the c5/c2 the scout find, ends up being the one we move to and invade. That scout gets the loot from the first POS we remove, this includes all wrecks from their defense fleet at the time of POS removal.
Once a target is found, phase 3 will start. All dred/carrier pilots will practice together on the test server. Anyone who wishes to support those ships in a webbing form should also join them, but not required. If you are a dred/carrier pilot, be prepared to be logged off with that character for as long as it takes to get all the capitals in.
If our targets are English speaking, infiltration is encouraged, spying encouraged… general underhandedness is encouraged. The more eyes/ears we have in the target corp, the better off we will be.
On a weekend in the future, we will begin…. POS roles for POS gunners will be granted. Divisional access will be suspended. Roles and privacy during an invasion is impossible to maintain. Don’t leave shit lying around.. Cethion and Bronya will facilitate this as need arises. This is one of the reasons why I made them directors.
Invasion ships will be approved by Bronya, Cethion and myself. (more to come on this as an invasion doctrine is constructed and posted on fleet-up)
Our strategy moving in will be expectation they will pull out all stops on us. Hire mercs, pull in alliance support from friends of friends. It won’t matter, we will be a thorn in their ass for as long as it takes. When one of our POS’s is attacked and RIF, we put up another, when that one is down, we will put up another. In fact I may get bored and simply anchor POS after POS without fuel waiting to be onlined, when one is dropped. Expect to be rape caged. Plan for it. Capitals are NOT TO LOG OFF IN THE POS!
If shit gets too real, and the cost of our actions are nearing suicidal, we may call in some favors of our own. I would like to do this ourselves but if I see moral weaning and people getting frustrated, my corp and its members mean more to me than maintaining the idea of the Iron Price. We will get this done. No matter what.
Roles will be stripped from those not needing them. Private divisions will be reinstated. POCO’s will be replaced with our own. A multi POS wormhole is where we are headed. A single central password less POS where fleets meet up will be established. This POS will have a single division, division 1, which all new people will share. If they want privacy from the other newbies, they need to pony up with the fuel costs. Shared suicide T1s in the SMA of this central POS will be accessible to all, so when a larger force arrives to get a piece of SUSU we will ALWAYS be able to fight, no matter the odds.
Now a payer to Bob.
I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the wormhole dream.
I have a dream that one day this corp will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all pod are created equal."
I have a dream that one day care bears of wormhole systems the sons of care bear hunters and the sons of former pilots destroyed will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day even the smallest C1, a terrible hole, sweltering with the weight of pvp boredom, will be transformed into an oasis of death and destruction.
I have a dream that our newbies will one day live in a corp where they will not be judged by the ships they can fly or but by the content of their character.
I have a dream today.
I have a dream that one day the Jita, whose con men are presently dripping with the words of interposition and nullification, will be transformed into a situation where little newbies and targets will be able to kill each other with care bears and targets and walk together as sisters and brothers.
I have a dream today.
I have a dream that one day every wormhole be exalted, K162 and null sec hole shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of Bob shall be revealed, and all pilots shall explode together.
This is our hope. This is the faith with which I return to w-space. With this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our corp into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith we will be able to work together, to destroy together, to struggle together, to go to explode together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day.
This will be the day when all of Bob children will be able to sing with a new meaning, "My wormhole, 'tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing. wormhole where my fathers died, wormhole of the pilgrim's pride, from every k162, let destruction ring."
And if corp is to be a great corp this must become true. So let destruction ring from the prodigious exits of null sec. Let freedom ring from the mighty exits of low sec. Let destruction ring from the low class wormholes!
Let destruction ring from the bear filled C6s!
Let destruction ring from the newb filled c1’s!
But not only that; let destruction ring from c4 to c4 unstable!
Let destruction ring from the retarted c5 to c1!
Let destruction ring from every k-space and trader alt toon. From every k-162, let destruction ring.
And when this happens, when we allow destruction to ring, when we let it ring from every exit and entrance, from every hole and alliance, we will be able to speed up that day when all of Bob's children, hunters and bears, day trippers and hole holders, null sec and high sec, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old spiritual, "Free at last! free at last! thank Bob Almighty, we are free at last!"
