EVE Online May Be On the Brink of Another Player War

Legacy Coalition ends NIP with Imperium Coalition

Well folks, it looks like the gears of war are grinding again in EVE Online.

Earlier this week, the Legacy Coalition had announced that they’re officially putting an end to the non-Invasion Pact with the Imperium Coalition. The date for this is July 5. They write they passed the following message to the Imperium diplomat,

“At this time, we feel that it is in the best interest of both parties that our mutual NIP come to an END. Due to the conflict you are currently involved in and because of our history of cooperation and friendship I am proposing the NIP to end on the date of July the fifth to allow you two weeks to fortify your borders or any areas you feel would require it. If you intend to end the NIP before that time we will understand.”

They ominously follow up with,

“This might not be in our best interest on paper, but regardless of the desire for safety, security and peace many have, there must also be conflict. We may all die in a ball of fire or we may engage in the greatest of victories imaginable. Whatever happens it will be interesting, dynamic, vibrant and exciting.”

Naturally, propaganda is rampant all over Reddit. You can catch a glimpse of that here. Another post showcases a pretty awesome poster featuring the words, “Do you want to live forever?”

Legacy Coalition have opened the window for potential imminent attacks against the Imperium Coalition,

“Provided they choose to continue the NIP for the remaining two weeks, you will have time to make arrangements and krab in preparation for the events this will likely lead into. When the NIP ends we will likely being retaking areas that have been denied us for the last few years and there will certainly be conflict and blood over it. You WILL respect the NIP until such time as it ends or is ended for us. While there will be no shortage of animosity towards us today we will carry ourselves with class and professionalism.”

And so beat the drums of war…
