Life Without BoB

If your reading this and the title sounds strange and unfamiliar then for the love of god check this forum out and get yourself up to date! I’ve only been playing for a year yet I still realize how big of an event this is to EvE. There are still many questions to be answered and details are still extremely fuzzy.

Here is the jist. A director in an executor corp in BoB became disgruntled and went to the other side. He somehow closed the alliance and has single handed changed the face of the game. One can argue that this isn’t an infiltration by the Goons, but in fact good luck and Goon leadership knowing a good opportunity when they see it. Disbanding can and will result in Titan construction coming to a hault and jump bridge systems failing. Reports of BoB evacuating assets have been posted on the forums, but mostly by Goon members themselves so take it with a grain of salt.

What will be interesting is….

  • What will happen to BoB members? Will they form up again to make a new alliance?
  • What is the scope of loss of both liquid and non-liquid assets?
  • How will CCP react?
  • What kind of affects this has on the game as a whole. Will Goons be THE premiere alliance in the game?

Time will tell what happens. With my corp planning on moving to 0.0 I wonder what the landscape of nullsec will look like. I’m sure its going to change dramatically. If BoB members can pull back together, get a new alliance up and rolling in the next two days then they can cut their losses. But make no mistake about it, BoB will not be the massive Alliance it once was anytime soon. Shit hit the fan and no matter what, they are losing assets. Its up to them to stop the bleeding. In some ways this is BoB dropping the ball. They either let one person have too much power or pissed him off enough that he went to the other side. Either way, they screwed up.

Suffice it to say this is the biggest event I’ve ever seen hit the game. Details will be pouring out in the coming days, weeks and even months. It is a very interesting development
