EvE Life: Fleet fighting
In the recent week i have come to a very good realization. I love fleet fights. There has been so many this weeks i probably logged on more than i have slept. been saving POS’s ( player owned stations ) or engaging hostile fleets that i forgot how wonderful it is. This is what eve is all about! I know what your going to say and how blobbing is bad but in a stable environment like a support node that was once set up after down time to prepare this huge 300 vs 300 sized fleet it dawned on me that i am taking place in somethingng truly epic in scale.
I love the anticipation waiting to be jumped in next to the Erebus class titan waiting for that cyno to pop to execute the bridge which will send it fleet next to it into hellish depths. What will be on the other side. Is there caps, is there a fleet at all. Is it a trap , are there cloakers ready to warp a hostile fleet on top of us or are there friendlies. Who knows. It probably the part i enjoy the most is the anticipation of not knowing what were dropping on which makes it so adrenalin rushing as every fleet fight is different. They all have different objectives or very single minded ones depending what you jump on. although loosing my battleship in a engagement with a large goonswarm fleet i didn’t mind just watching the engagement of just slugs of antimatter or radio scorched the sky knowing that what i am seeing only a small % of people that play eve actually see these types of engagements.
which brought me to my second part about being in 0.0 space. a old friend in a old empire/ low sec corp hates that i am part of the GBC (greater B.O.B coalition ) and thinks of me as a traitor, which is what i cant understand. In real wars such as WWII etc people were hated for not picking a side at all and thought off as cowards , because they didn’t want to get shot by either party in which they only cared about there own skin instead of fighting for a bigger cause. which is why i am glad i have actually picked a side. These engagements are truly epic in scale which are fighting for things which empire and low sec corps cant even Imagine. to any of those people that see me as a silly 0.0 dwindler i shout out to you , least i am having fun, least i have picked a side. i respect all that i fight with and against that they have picked a side and that what ever side they are on they are taking part in eve history.If you have not yet to take part in the history of eve then it is a strong thing i suggest to do. now that there is minimal lag now with in these fight , big fights like these are more fun than they have ever been and if you haven’t tried out 0.0 i would give it a go even if it is a short while. After all isnt this a MMO and should be played as such?
Thanks again to Federation of Freedom Fighters for providing me with good PVP through out the months
