My desire to see more fleet actions during the war in Tenal this past weekend was a futile hope.
Friday morning, the map of Tenal looked like this.
And now, on Monday morning, it looks like this.
And in between I was able to get in on a single Tenal fleet on Friday night, and all we did was go out and put an infrastructure hub into reinforce mode so it could be blown up 24 hours later. That mission wasn’t even worth a post. The screen shots I took will probably end up on EVE Online Pictures.
No epic battles with thousands of ships and time dilation in play. The sovereignty map for today shows RAZOR Alliance pretty much in control of Tenal, with Raiden down in the Vale of the Silent, an appropriate place I suppose given how little they did in the war over the last week.
Of course, there is a story behind all of this. That is the lore of EVE Online, the stories of what the players did.
Unfortunately, I don’t know the story, or not in any detail, and there are NPCs out there to intone it to me, guiding me through the lore with a series of quests and cut scenes. It is like the stories in any city of moderate size, you only know the ones with which you are directly involved and maybe a few more you have heard from friends.
Still, there are enough resources out there that I can piece together bits of it.
Pictures follow after the break.
