The cloakers in our systems in Fountain have assured me that we will soon be swept aside by a tidal wave of clowns. Imagine my surprise when I saw this!
It appears that IT may be selling off SOV in their impenetrable fortress Delve. While this may not be true (It hasn't even hit EVEnews24, the beacon of fair and balanced truth.), there was a story about IT losing moons due to inability to mount any defense today.
Having experienced the Atlas failcascade firsthand, I shouldn't be surprised that IT is so terrible. I can't help being shocked, though. IT was supposedly the biggest and most potent force in EVE. This has been conventional wisdom the entire time I have played the game, though IT was BoB back then. To see that the emperor has no clothes, and no defense ops, has been disappointing.
We needed Fountain more than IT, and we will put the space to good use for our pilots. Seeing another inflated SOV holder losing space that they didn't efficiently use is a very good sign. Why did IT need to hold 4 regions? They didn't. If they sell off Delve sov, they will now hold none, as Querious and Period Basis are also under assault with minimal defense by IT.
