Faction Warfare - One More System
Still no word on a medal from CCP. What I do know is that they are looking into it, and will announce when they've made a decision. It's not code that is built-in to the game. It's something a dev has to manually give qualifying players.
I'll be disappointed if I don't get a medal, but if CCP decides that they don't want to do it (or don't have the time), I'm not going to be terribly upset about it either. I, of course, will read the threadnaught of rage that will erupt over the issue on the forums. The EVE Online forums are always good reading when it comes to drama and anger over entitlement issues.
Last week I was of the mind that this medal (if we get one) will be a tad undervalued due to the remaining Amarr rolling over, giving up. But this week, I've come around to a different view of the situation. Fuck the Amarr. Even without Fweddit and Moar Tears and Lost Obsession, they still have more than enough pilots that they could have held one or two systems (nothing is a certainty, but they would have made it exceptionally difficult at the very least.) If the Amarr want to roll over like submissive dogs, then that is their choice. I'm sure there'll be the "we gave it to you" propaganda from the Amarr, but since they didn't prove they could keep total system dominance from us, their complaints are a moot and indefensible point.
There's still Sahtogas. If they want to stop us from achieving a goal we desire, they still have the opportunity of making that point.
Minmatar loyalty point farmers must be slightly annoyed. Nothing at all down south for them to farm. I'm sure most have already moved up to Caldari space. But the squids have been much more active in chasing farmers from plexes, so it isn't going to be quite the AFK activity it was down in Minmatar space the last week and a bit.
I'm currently at 1.2M loyalty points. Worth about 8B ISK, given the commodities I'll purchase from the LP store and then sell on the market. I've spreadsheeted about one-quarter of the loyalty point store, and know exactly what I'll be purchasing and at what quantities. I'll probably mission a bit more, see if I can get that to 1.5M loyalty points, and then assist with the push for Sahtogas a little later tonight.
After this weekend, no more missioning, no more solo plexing, for a good long while. I am completely burned-out on those activities. So damned boring. (Well, Fweddit Mumble made some of it less lonely and painful.)
