Regarding my thoughts on E-Uni
Before this war started, I had a great deal of respect for E-Uni. I was under the impression that they were a good learning corp for the world of EVE. I reccomended it to my friends trying the game and to others joining RvB without a clue with what to do.
However, this changed literally overnight. As we roamed about in the RvB Purple fleet, we couldn’t help but noticed that E-Uni had issues with engaging anything that they didn’t outnumber massively. Not too much of an issue, that’s just the way EVE works but it did bug me that this didn’t seem to teach much.
This was compouded today, when EVE Uni proceeded to camp their own system with about 80 ships. All day. They left the system once, and only went 6 jumps for about 10 mins before turning back.
Now, this is my own opinion, but I fail to see what this teaches? If they’d have split into 3 or 4 smaller fleets and roamed, WT fleets would have engaged, fights would have been had and THINGS WOULD HAVE BEEN LEARNT.
There also seemed to be previous few Uni solo’ers. I counted about 2. Compared to RvB which had about 20/25 guys roaming all over Uni space looking for solo fights, well…
I understand that E-Uni is *not* RvB, but it makes no sense to me that the Uni would continue to encourage these massive not-doing-anything blobs. It must be very boring and nothing is learned, and this defeats the point in my opinion. These decs are an ideal time for the Ivy League to get small gang and pvp practice in and they’re basically giving it the finger.
So I lost a lot of respect for Uni today. I won’t be reccomending them, at least not for anything remotely PvP.
Maybe if something changes during the war, perhaps. Like a small E-Uni gang coming to our space instead of all of us having to go to them.
