Providence is burning.
Against All Authorities and CVA have been neighbors for a long time. They've been through a lot together, but one thing has been certain for a while, AAA and CVA aren't friendly to each other.
But they aren't enemies either, or at least, weren't.
Back when CVA got hacked and dissolved, it was CVA's neighbors, AAA in particular, that came to it's defense. They camped gates into Providence and they made it clear that anyone trying to take CVA space while they were weak would have to face down AAA as well.
That would be the extent of it, but not to long ago CVA decided to take Catch from AAA. Normally this wouldn't be such a big deal, but AAA was fighting hard with Goons at the time. In essence, CVA decided to strike while AAA was weak. Some say they were even in league with Goonswarm.
No one in AAA was crying about it. They took their lumps and kept up the fight against the Goons.
However, due to some mismanagement in Goonswarm, and a well timed CEO cut and run, CVA were left to face AAA alone. This was an AAA with a purpose and a motive: Wipe CVA from the sovereignty map.
This brings us to a week ago. AAA has taken back it's Catch territories, and has begun the push into Providence.
Noir. was hired to dive headfirst into Providence and act as a harassing force on the local population. We're nearing 700 kills and 40 billion isk killed in the last two weeks.
CVA and it's sovereignty holders have almost abandoned their once safe havens and are running back to empire.
Through it all, AAA has offered peace to those who live in CVA space, if they're willing to overthrow the oppressors. This has been rejected at every turn, as has a peace offering to CVA itself.
D-GTMI, a hub and station system for CVA has been taken by AAA, and as I write this, 9UY4-H is in AAA's complete control, and is soon to fall.
And that my friends, is just the beginning.
