Ive known its a RP war all along but...
I know there is no Rules of Engagement between us, but both sides keep a quite accurate tally of losses and wins.
And as a RP war it is a story that gets better as its told so why not take it one step further.
We are protecting Amarr and the systems around it. You are around whatever infidel place it is and try to protect it from our invincible fleets.
Why not use the tally as a marker which system is whose. Draw the frontline at some systems and make it go back and forth according to the wins and losses.
To add some order to the war, use only small fleets outside the frontline or just raiding cruiser/frig fleets.
The fleet ops wouldnt drag onto 3 hour events where you run around backwaters of minnie systems searching for single battleship.
There wouldnt be 30 BS convoys traipsing around home systems killing newbies.
Of course this kind of system would need an agreement from the whole corporations and those that are at war with each other. And it would also lessen the bandwagon wars...
And it wouldnt degenerate to a 0.0 war mentality with time. It would be a RP war with goals.
There isn't a frontline Lallara as terrorists don't respect frontlines.
If there was a formal war between the Amarr Empire and Minmatar republics then I could see there being front lines - system captured/ lost etc. but atm we are merely 'paramilitaries' doing our own bit for the cause.
Yeah, I see our current conflict as loony extremeists operating outside of their respective empire's control.
I manage to be here simply because it's my job to make things go boom, and anyone who pimps out all their ships with gold has just gotta pay more than people who recycle junkheaps :mrgreen:
I don't like it. Its good in concept but then you'd have bickering about "oh thats my system". Lets just leave it as is.
QUOTEThere isn't a frontline Lallara as terrorists don't respect frontlines.
Your damn right we dont! We dont respect nuffin Amarr! death to slavery! death to Amarr!
Well, we are freedom fighters, its our job to go deep in emeny lines, pick of a few people, rescue a few slaves and leg it back here.
The trouble with big fleets misisng each other isnt really going to solved anytime soon, as fleets merging and going off tends to be reliant upon who has time and whos around, and as we all have real lives that get in the way damn them, we just gotta stick with it. Lately we've been seeing an increase in small strike fleets of cruisers and frigates which, i think, tends to be more fun (and alot cheaper too)
Anyway, if you want to have more point to war, then i suggest more joint events, we dont need ISD, plenty of people on both sides willing to pitch in for these. And they fit in better for our freedom fighter goals (were not meant to be an army after all) and your paramilitary goals (well you aint an navy really either are you? just a bunch of stinking amarrians hunting terroists and attempting to secure your borders from us freedom loving peaceful people;) )
anyway, my two cents.
If you want to do something with 50 odd BS's... do something un-expected... go out to a pirate alliance choke point and fly 50 BS's in there and watch em run... setup insta's before had to keep ahead of your own blob.

Wander into HLW with those 50-odd and yer SURE to have a nice big CA blob showing up soon-ish
Same for any alliance, just pick one you feel like terrorizing.
