Storm Warning

Red sky at morning, sailors take warning;Red sky at night, sailors delight

There are some key signs that should tell you your alliance is in big trouble.  Other than recruiting any corp with Corelin in it there’s a few things that should put out BIG FLASHING LETTERS that things are about to go batshit.

  1. More people show up to meetings than to defend alliance structures.  Meetings often cause more problems than they solve.
  2. No one can agree on who should be FCing ops.  FCs are far more important than CEOs in PvP ops.
  3. Leadership (FCs or CEOs) that don’t understand why people need isk.
  4. People not understanding the point of fleet doctrines / trolling in leadership forums

These are all things that can hit pretty much any alliance, and they are bad, but not “abandon ship” bad.  This is where it starts getting panic-inducing.

  1. People are shipping up to fight you.  Because they know you aren’t a threat.
  2. People are roaming your territory during their off-peak times.
  3. All those neutral booster alts are starting to log out in your systems.

On an unrelated note.  S I L E N T. is down 140 members in the last couple days.

  1. Unrelated? You keep using that word. I don’t think it means what you think it means. 😛

  2. “3. Leadership (FCs or CEOs) that don’t understand why people need isk.”
    I lol’d. “We’re a PvP alliance…people need to be out on the front, not back in [ahem] doing carebear bullshit!”
    This after spending ohhhh, a couple months “deployed” all over, having less than a week “off”, then gallivanting off again for another fun time… couple that with: “BTW there’s a mining CTA ….”
    We hate carebear shit, all our ISK should just magically appear from nowhere, and NOT because you’re ratting, missioning, or incursioning!!!!1!!111!!ONE!!11!!4!561!! btw the “worst” carebear shit is ok as long as we tell you when and where to do it, and call it a “CTA”.

    *head-fucking-desk*

    Since there’s no “arms” involved in mining, shouldn’t it be a CTB?

  3. …but, you won the “KB ePeen war”, right? Cause I’m fairly sure that’s all that matters. 😉 Unless you’re trying to hold territory. Or didn’t really want those ships anyways. Or … [insert excuse here]…

    I think this “false dichotomy” of carebears and PvPers is gonna end up being game-breaking, in the long-long run.

  4. What is it with the alliances you join lol….

    • I call it the Corelin Effect. The Last Stand, War & Pestilence, Ignus Astrum, Cult of War, Legiunea R0mana, Razor, Disciples of Crom, Insane Asylum, S I L E N T.

      Some of it is timing, some of it is personalities, some of it is just… The Corelin Effect.

      • You can’t really chalk up The Last Stand to anything like the Corelin Effect, honestly, because after we (Radikus) left (or were kicked, whichever), the alliance continue for a good while just as it had previously. That it later failed can be the result of nothing more or less than that it … failed. On its own.

        As for the rest on the list … v0v
