#Catch : A Tale of Two Braves -  A retrospective from The Bad Guys (Part I of II)
1GhPall.jpg
 
So, some people have asked me on the Brave subreddit for an AAR of sorts from the PL perspective.  I love to post, as you’ve no doubt figured out, and I do love you guys.  For the most part you guys like me too; I’ve only once been embraced like this from another alliance and that was with PL (back when I wasn’t in PL).  That said if you are of the opinion that I’m here to ~meta game~ you or sow seeds of discontent, you really don’t want to read further.  It’s going to make you upset, and I have no intentions of doing anything like that.  
 
Unfortunately due to length I had to split things into two parts. Luckily we were here twice!
 
The Beginning
To start things off, I was actually not active in Eve when we were three-way’ing the fights in Provi.  Making timers in the Dominion sov system is really awful, though, so it’s always the most low-effort-fun to jump in when two parties are doing all the work for you.  I was very active when we made the decision, post Phoebe, to move to Curse.   The reason was because the game – our brand of game – was being changed.  While we weren’t working or doing anything major, we had this really neat deployment model called Rapid Deployments.  Basically, any FC could come up with a budget and plan to go to a certain area and just get fights.  Maybe for one week, maybe for one month.  So PL would stage in Amamake and take one Carrier load of ships to the Rapid Deployment zone and see what happens.  Sometimes they were fun, sometimes they were busts, but they were very fun and easy to do.  Anyways, Phoebe changed that with the jump range and jump fatigue mechanic so we had to be more deliberate with our moves. We chose Curse because several people were in the area, but mostly because we knew Brave fought. 
 
With Phoebe we also needed to stress-test some new doctrines.  We had some theories at what would be strong, but just like anything with Eve you need hands on practice to see what actually works.  There is no need to rehash every fight (though I must say, you guys are so much shit to bombs) but suffice to say that you were a fantastic stress test for us.  We eventually settled on what worked and what didn’t.  The most spectacular failure we had, though, was to put tracking-fit Nyxes in a safe spot assigning Fighters under a scan inhibitor.  I was confident that this would be the most hilarious thing ever, but it never worked.  We actually had an awful track-record with dropping caps in general.  You guys fielded so much triage in every fight that the only thing we could do was tank and wait for the GODBOMB.  I know it’s narrative destroying to suggest that you guys fielded caps, but you guys did it for every single timer and got away with it.
 
At the time we had no idea of this, but there was a lot of undue panic from your leadership and middle management speculating about our presence.   We were just there to have fun and shoot dudes, but the leadership channels became gridlocked with doom-and-gloom drama while trying to come up with a narrative to motivate people.  I think this the one areaa of the game that Brave is  very weak at: managing the management.  
 
From my perspective (obviously), these guys have a very warped view of the game.  It’s like they learned how to run a coalition from Chinese whispers of how to run a coalition; “you have to manage the meta, you have to fabricate a narrative” etc.  In reality you only need a narrative to motivate an otherwise unwilling coalition to go to war.  And you have to be very careful in making one; it’s easy for a story to backfire and make you look like an idiot.  You guys weren’t in that position at all; the narrative you came up with actually disparaged you more.    So there was this very gung-ho excitement phase, followed by this abject depression a few days later when things didn’t pan out (you got bombed really hard).  But it’s ok, because things turned around.  
 
I’m not sure what happened, but you spun out of your funk and rebounded.  There were some good results, and you guys came up with this really nifty plan to drop on our caps as they were grinding.  Out of nowhere, 40something dreads dropped on one of our titans.  Unfortunately you guys had a bit of a miscommunication and dropped on the /wrong/ Titan and it lived – but it was exciting!  You guys took a swing at the giant and made him bleed.  This type of action – an invention and risky decision that your military directorship was really against – inspired you guys more than anything else.
 
The all-time killer in Eve Online – the one thing responsible for more alliance collapses and expensive losses – is hubris.  We try like the plague to avoid it, but occasionally we get caught with our pants down. This happened to PK’s Avatar.  Another plan – this time executed perfectly – and you bagged your first ever Titan and Super kill.  Swagger came flowing through you, and fleet participation skyrocketed. Nothing cleanses quite like the champagne bath of victory.  In HED you guys successfully defended the station (using caps), and you bagged your SECOND Titan kill.  That one wasn’t due to our hubris or a trap, just a questionable FC decision (yours truly) that didn’t pan out.  It was actually very fun for us, and I think it goes down in Eve history as the biggest fight (in terms of ship kills) the game has seen.  No narrative, no fear mongering, no bureaucratic red tape, just fun in the sun.  This is where you are strongest, this is where you are a force of nature. 
 
We were still experimenting and learning just how strong caps were in Phoebe (an aside, we learned that they’re significantly stronger now) and then got a contract offer.  In November we made the decision to just get rid of our rental empire – which was the biggest in the game – to just do our own thing.  As a result it meant that we had to make money another way and we defaulted to mercenary work.  Although you guys were way more fun, we started to make plans to move over to the dreaded dronelands.

#Catch : A Tale of Two Braves -  A retrospective from The Bad Guys (Part II)
2AniBgV.jpg
 
The Second Coming
Having played this game for so long, and having learned from some of the best guys out there, I appreciate better than most that is almost impossible to plan more than six weeks in advance.  If you try to plan out your next year – or even six months - you’ll quickly find that things fall apart.  So on our way out I approached your leadership about coming up with a deal so that we would leave you guys alone.  We asked to buy some of the supercaps you were building for someone else in exchange for leaving your sov alone.  Not bending at the knee or paying a tithe to be our pets, but just buying some ships you were building at buildcost +15%.  Some of you leadership were keen on the deal – many weren’t informed all together – and others were of the opinion that it would set a bad precedent.  Eventually the information leaked that we were leaving (XIX made a morale speech saying that we would be coming down to assist them), and the tone changed instantly.  It seemed to me that you guys thought you had found some hidden leverage (the intel came from an /r/eve thread) and wanted to boast proudly how PL was thwarted!  I personally thought the deal was fair and wasn’t a bad precedent, but of course I came up with the deal so it shouldn’t be a surprise.  
 
Anyways we left and you guys went back do doing your thing.  I was still active on the Brave subreddit, and of course there was a bit of drama because honestly it’s something you guys love.  I don’t get it, but it’s undeniably part of you and a little bit isn’t a bad thing.  As our contract was finishing up we were deciding what to do next.  Moving our cap fleet is a pain in the butt, so again we went with the “sure thing” instead of moving to Venal or Fountain and risk having to spend a week or two moving AGAIN to find some fun.  There was a bit of action in the Stain area this time, so we popped on by.  Close to Brave, close to fun.  
 
We started doing our thing again and like clockwork, the “narrative and meta” questions started coming back.  You guys went with a similar approach; stating that we were here to invade and going for 3GD as our primary target.  I actually touched on this in a Reddit thread that got a lot of attention (http://www.reddit.co..._legion/covuvk4) and kind of warned of the dangers.  But again, that’s just my opinion.  You guys fully embraced the Tengu/Eagle thing, and we countered that hard.  Like, mega hard.  Our TFIs did work.  We used to have a system in Catch, L7X, that we used for a cyno beacon and logistics.  Upon moving to Stain some of our logi dudes requested a replacement system for L7X (you guys took it when we left) and we settled on F4R.  We went for it with everything we had, and honestly it wasn’t easy.  It’s not like we were going easy on you to farm for fights, as some of the more cynical people assumed – we legit wanted the system.  There was a very funny moment when we just dropped a ball of caps on it and ended up LOSING to one of you guys getting the last hit on it and saving the system.  It was honestly one of the funniest things ever.  
 
As far as strategic objectives, you guys were doing markedly better.  Every system that you showed up to got saved.  Fleet participation was high, more and more people were getting into Tengus, and losses were much lower.  But then the drama snake reared its head once more.  Apathy got kicked, Test and HONOR decided to leave HERO, and more bureaucratic drama came oozing from some leadership.  We just wanted to keep having the fights, and objectively we were getting incredibly good at them.  But instead of the exuberance and carefree attitude we saw some months prior - the attitude that led to three super kills – we saw vitriol and sour attitudes.  It seems to me that the “narrative” some people tried to craft just got eaten up by the leadership people instead of the line member.  A toxic Ouroboros, of sorts.  Some have argued that the “average line member” was burning out, but fleet participation was going up.  I never really got the impression that the line member hated life in Catch.  
 
A Tale of Two Braves
This is when I began to notice two very different Braves.  The one, excitable players – new and old alike – committed to having fun with a penchant for making drama from nothing.  The other, a bloated and over-stressed paper-pushing behemoth sucked into a black hole of its own making.   Bickering and in-fighting created this circle of self-pity that started to bleed out of leadership and into the 99% of Brave that just likes to have fun.  It’s not a very flattering picture I’m painting, and I’m not necessarily blaming them – leading a coalition is a tricky process – but that is what I feel happened.  Nobody was trying to be bad or cause some sort of self-destruction, it was just this petri dish that we inadvertently added heat to.  
 
Our intentions were never to create some cracks or conquer Catch.  As I mentioned before, planning more than 6 weeks in advance never actually works.  We wanted to pass the time having fun with people we knew could have fun.  We never really thought of you as a game preserve, nor did we want to ~meta you~ for some geopolitical end.  I found it really hard to deny some of these accusations because the response was – quite unironically – “well that’s what someone who is trying to manipulate us would say”.   It was really comical, truth be told, but the average line member seemed to appreciate my presence so I just shook those guys off.  Like I said, they are The Other Brave.
 
Eventually GE happened.  I explained what happened in this thread (along with some Dominion Sov Q&A http://www.reddit.co...nforced/cpgbvx1) but tl;dr our AUTZ was waiting for fatigue to end and shot GE with your SBUs up.  Later we dropped our own SBUs in GE to distract you from another target (CNC-4V – a system we thought we may need later) but hilariously enough you guys kept shooting the CNC SBUs and let the GE ones go up unmolested.  You have no idea how frustrated Ron Mexxico was at this.  Of course when the GE final timer came up, you guys responded with the single biggest coalition you have ever made.  You had more caps than we had people and the system was saved in 5 minutes.  Saved as in the station was repped, the SBUs were killed.  It was beautiful.  Although I got headshot like 3 times and my fleet couldn't do jack shit, I was still oddly proud.  I knew you guys had it in you.  It was reminiscent of the fun-loving Brave that dropped caps on our Titan (except it was strangely effective).  And you did this while your main FC was at Fanfest.  Real talk, you deserve to be proud of that showing.  Meanwhile I was raging at my AUTZ for riling you up like this, assuming that every fleet we faced would be 500 strong now and we’d have to think up of new ways to fight you.
 
With things dying down, we started to plan for our immediate future.  I was spitballing some ideas with other FCs and we had a thought: what if we took Brave with us?  At Fanfest a few of our FCs were hanging out with Blue Ice and said to me “hey this guy is cool, figure out a way to work with this guy”. The consummate facilitator, I came up with a plan and pitched it to your leadership: we’ll blue one another (and obviously not touch Catch), split the profits 50-50, and go do contract work together.  You guys could be as autonomous or integrated as you wanted, and could stop at any time. The figure we were offered at the time was 600b, splitting it 50-50 for 8 weeks.  A fair amount of money, but I understood that some people would probably need some motivation to work with the guys that were so vigorously shooting them in the face for a few months.  I knew full well we’d get maybe 100-150 dudes to come on fleets with us, but to me that was enough.  I was confident people would have fun and numbers would swell.  Unfortunately, what I have dubbed The Other Brave apparently didn’t like it.  I’m honestly not sure how much of this leadership proper knew of this proposition, but the response I got was – at best- tepid.  
 
I don’t know if it was a trust issue or if your leadership honestly believed this was just a contrived plot to steal away their members.  I’ll be honest, you guys have hemorrhaged a lot of talented people and –apart from Apathy guys – none joined PL.  I was pretty gutted that we had to shelve the plan, but things happen and I respect that.  I told your guys that no matter what you chose we wouldn’t hold the decision against you.  This is going to be hard to believe given what happened next (we took GE and HED), but we were quite honest in this.  We actually had struck a deal with a member of the Brave Diplomatic team (who was acting on his own) to not take any final timers so long as you guys were actively defending.  When you guys announced plans for Brave Mercenaries, this benefactor informed us that the deal was off and we could do whatever.  
 
Almost There
Since I’ve been rambling for a bit I would be remiss if I didn’t restate a few disclaimers.  When I’m saying here is my honest interpretation of events – through the PL lens, of course.  If you are of the mind that I’m out to coup attempt #12 or spin you into death, you definitely don’t want to read on.  I am doing this purely because you guys asked me for my opinion.
 
People in Eve are motivated by different things.  PL is motivated first and foremost by tears generated from our actions.  It’s weird and hard to understand if you’re not part of it, but it’s what we do.  Your evacuation/move/deployment thing, whatever it was, is to date the biggest clusterfuck I’ve seen in spaceships.  I say this from a place of love, but it was a complete disaster.  I can sort of understand how it happened, though.  The Other Brave – the management types – figured that they had their bargaining chip.  PL wanted to work with Brave, so we wouldn’t dare take HED or GE!  Have we met?  Capitalizing on chaos is our bread and butter.  Specifically when you guys singled out three systems you would defend at all costs, we just ran at them to see what would happen.  So that is how we accidentally took Catch.
 
But we don’t hate you and we don’t want you to fail.  Brave do a great service and are largely really cool people.  The Other Brave – the 1%- do you a bit of a disservice.  But hey! They’re learning.  So long as, like Brave members, they’re OK to take criticisms then all is well.  I still want to work with you guys on a contract in the future and that offer we had is forever on the table.  I can’t promise it’ll be 600b, but you can pick and choose.  
 
In the meantime, HED and GE are both freeported (if they aren’t now they will be shortly – make sure to check with something cheap first), so if you have things in there you can get them out whenever.  Be very careful moving things out, we certainly won’t be guarding the path or blue’ing people – but we’re not in the business of trapping the livelihood of anyone; the silent curses are not where our fun comes from.  
 
In fact we love Brave so much you have inspired a bunch of people in PL to embrace the new players.  Whenever you look at player retention graphs it’s always depressing to see just how many people try the game and just give up.  So following your lead we’ve made a newbie group all our own called Pandemic Horde (/r/PandemicHorde).  We're a bit different, but the same underlying idea.  I’ll be helping out as will JEFFRAIDER, but the real pillars are: Travis, Lament, Cyberking, Sting, Brood, and Gobbins.  All these guys were inspired by you to help new players get sucked into the game with us.  People joke that PL has the Stockholm Effect on their allies, but it's just the opposite this time around.  It’s not just a flippant weekend thing, either; we’re fully committed into this project.  They'll be living in HED, too, so when you fly through be sure to teach them what it means to lose a ship in style.  Maybe one day soon you will have a Sansha Stronghold in their staging system! So thank you, sincerely, for inspiring us to make the game better.  
 
Everything that I stated in the State of the Coalition is true; you guys are a fantastic group with an amazing potential.  Your future is bright, your stuff is not locked in Catch, and I look forward to the day that we can fly together.  I hope the read wasn’t too dry and you found it interesting.  Of course, I appreciate any feedback or suggestions of topics that you may be interested in.

PANDEMIC LEGION ANNOUNCES: PANDEMIC HORDE
Pandemic Horde is totally focused on training the next generation of Eve Online players in a positive environment allowing them to experience the best that internet spaceships has to offer. 
 
Newbean lives matter. In Pandemic Horde, everybody has the opportunity to contribute. From leading fleets to teaching classes, line members have the freedom to do what they want, when they want. Pandemic Horde members are mentored by some of the most experienced players in Eve and led by those who truly embrace the newbean mentality. Pandemic Horde is here to teach and improve every pilot, from recent subscribers to bitter vets.
 
Pаndemіc Hоrde is based in Catch. This provides a target rich environment and allows for some newbean income. The Horde will not follow Pandemic Legion around the map but instead use a new type of deployment system: whenever Horde pilots аre employed to support PL’s fіghts, the pilоts will only be asked to move their pods to the staging by the time the op beings. The logistics team will provide fitted ships at the destination to be handed out in the gang. The pilot only has to worry about moving its own clone. Participation to join fights is entirely voluntary.
 
Backed by Pandemic Legion’s support including IRC, forums, and mumble, Pandemic Horde operates independently under a streamlined, transparent, and accessible leadership structure.  Horde's leadership is there to serve its members‚ not thеmsеlves.
 
For further information visit our subreddit /r/pandemichorde, check out the in gаme channel “Joіn Horde” or private message the CEO Travis Keikira.

The Truth Is Out There
 
Brave Newbies Didn't Just Blow Itself Up
One week ago I was listening to Alex Jones when I got a phone call. The caller said in a modulated voice, "Kill Brave Newbies by ANY means necessary. Anime Is Cartoons". Before I could say a thing the caller hung up, but that didn't matter. I had the go code. After clearing the Cheetos dust from my beard I sprang into action. With a mix of false flag sock puppets, careful whispers to Pandemic Legion leadership, and psychological manipulation I killed BRAVE. Honestly, it came together better than I could even imagine. I was the linchpin that killed Lynchton. I guess all of my research into what the mainstream media doesn't want you to know really paid off.

I'm watching this from the sidelines, obviously.  Not only am I not in Brave but I haven't played Eve in more than a year.  Still everything I read, I see the same shit in Brave that I saw up close in TEST.  Paper pushers taking a very firm look at their own prostates and thinking it's prophecy.

BNI: "Man leadership sucks, things need to change!"

BNI execs: <vote out lychton with game mechanics because he wouldn't fuck off nicely>

BNI: "Man idk, he was a pretty cool and nice guy - it's pretty fucked up to do that to him!"

 

like these faggots can't make up their mind it's unbelievable

This is basically the tl;dr of BRAVE.

Edit: Good on you PL bros for getting into the newbie game. Shobon newbs are actually a lot of fun.

BNI will continue to be shit until they dissolve their council and a strong dictator takes over. Democracy doesnt work in internet spaceships.

Brave Collective,
The past few weeks have been an exercise in restraint, patience, and spacepolitiks. I woke up to learn that the overwhelming number of directors and CEOs had exercised the corp voting mechanic in order to remove me as Alliance executor while I was asleep last night. Furthermore, this was on the heels of being advised daily by my core leadership circle leaving me in the dark about upcoming plans.
Let me say that I am thoroughly disappointed by the actions of my space peers. However, if there is one thing that is paramount, it is that BNI, BRAVE, and HERO have a mission to harness the enthusiasm and power of the newbro. With that said, I will not let personal anger or frustrations jeopardize the progress that we have made thusfar. Now, let’s get ready to rumble:
I hold no official position as to the status of BRAVE remaining the leader among equals with our coalition partners within HERO. If the alliance rostership wishes to remain, so be it. For the alliances that are one foot out of the door already, I will be coordinating with Malanek to add you to the targeting list.
Within BRAVE itself, while I am troubled by the method by which the council sought to remove me, and their (self-perceived) short sightedness, I am not going to challenge Malanek in terms of holding the Executor role. In addition, I am looking into passing the reigns of Brave Newbies Incorporated over the next few days, weeks, whatever. I have not confirmed who my successor will be, but you will all know if I elect to go down this path. If I do not find someone suitable, well, it looks like we are all going to have to play nice.
Now, I am going to hold Malanek to task for performing under this new capacity. As such, I am keeping 100% of the shares for all BRAVE related entities. BNI, B-BRV, TLOGI, DOJO, U-W0T, BPRIV, and a few more that I know I am forgetting. Malanek will retain full operational control of the alliance, but should he go rogue, I will use the corporate share mechanism to retake control. I do this not to be obstructionist but to preserve the core value of BRAVE until I trust that his intentions are pure for the long term. If Malanek proves to be a focused leader that is beneficial to the Collective, I will then release the majority of those shares to him. Trust, but verify.
Lastly, I am dissolving the 501c3 corporation that we created IRL. Lquid Drisseg and Bronopoly will be stripped of the Officer powers, and I have temporarily suspended the donate@bravecollective.com service, as it is tied to my real life financial accounts. Once a new paypal account is established, I will immediately transfer all remaining assets to the new account and then walk away from the rl money mgmt corp. In the near term, the deal with our merchandising needs to be revisited by the new executor, as the current payment disbursement mechanism is no longer an option.
To all the newbies in our great Alliance, thank you for letting me be the one to hold this gigantic bag of cats for the past 18 months or so. It’s been a great experience, growing this organization to where we are today. I am not leaving BNI or Brave for that matter, although I am going to use this free time to enjoy not dealing with multiple problems per day.
Malanek, I’m here on skype. We should set aside a few hours so I can catch you up on all things Eve, meta, and your new enemies lurking in the shadows.
7o, Lychton Kondur
CEO, Brave Newbies
Brave Collective
Tl;dr – this is my official statement. I will not clarify any portion of it.

LOL I have sigs disabled
