Revisiting Gallente Highsec South

I've written about how the Deninard system swelled with refugees as a result of our campaigns through Gallente highsec. The miners vowed to make a last stand in Deninard, but they, too, crumbled.


Tolle and the other ice field systems of Gallente North have dried up. Many of the remaining miners have purchased permits. The ice fields are not dead, but they host only a fraction of the Code violators that they did before. Time to move on!


What's this? Yes, we're taking a mini-vacation to revisit Gallente South, the Brapelille-Chelien-Jaschercis axis. Above is an improved map of the surrounding systems. It will be interesting to revisit this area, as we'll see how the area has fared in our absence. Did all the miners immediately move back in after we left, as the skeptics predicted?

Actually, initial reconnaissance suggests that these areas have not recovered. The New Order's love and attention have had longer-term effects on these systems. Chelien, in particular, is only a shadow of its former self. Ardallabier may be the exception, as it benefited somewhat from the ruin of Brapelille.

We'll be using the same three HQ stations as before:


You might wonder why we would bother revisiting this area, even if only for a shorter period than our normal campaigns. The answer is pretty simple. I want to send a message to the miners who get chased away by our activities. They may think that if we hit an area and leave, it will be safe from then on. But if we demonstrate, even on a single occasion, that lightning can strike twice in the same place, then our enemies aren't safe anywhere.

Since Gallente North and Gallente South are close, the transition shouldn't be too difficult, as our gank fleets can hit targets in either area, depending on where our supplies are still located. In addition, I've added insta-undocks for New Order Logistics for stations in each of the non-HQ ice field systems. There's been some discussion about seeding certain non-HQ systems with limited numbers of Catalysts only (modules are small and can be carried by an alt for the whole gang). With some improvisation, non-HQs can be used as staging areas to further frustrate gate-campers. For example, if Ardallabier is active, modules can be moved by an alt one jump from Brapelille; if Catalysts are in Ardallabier, the system's ice field and belts can be attacked from within.

If suppliers put Catalysts into these non-HQ ice field systems, the following stations should be used:


For the sake of completeness, I also provided New Order Logistics with insta-undocks for the non-HQ ice field systems of Gallente North:


Happy hunting! The next time we move, it will be to a brand new area. If you have any ideas about popular clusters of mining systems, let me know.

  1. I think I'm just going to leave those Cats in Tolle ... We'll be back.

    1. True that. Slowly but surely we will build hangars across the universe capable of unleashing holy antimatter upon our foes no matter where they run to.

  2. You should go back to lowsec with the rest of the mouthbreathing, Fox news watching Limbaugh fans and leave highsec alone. It's highsec. As in high security. It's supposed to be safe.

      You had a typo. I fixed it for you.

      Also, leave El Rushbo out of this. He's done nothing wrong.

      Did the tutorial again.. there is no reason to suppose HighSec is a save place.

    5. Say what?

      The Goons and DREADIT are mostly a bunch of lefties. Calling them Rush fans to their face would cause keyboards all over CFC to die in a massive beer spew.

      You might actually be happier there.

  3. :( I had no chance to be in Tolle when you arrived there (standing in a ice/asteroid belt with a wardec is not really a good idea^^). But i want wish you goodbye i leave within the next days highsec, cause my corp moves to null. So have fun, a good hunt and for the miners i hope you can escape from them. Leave the systems they will follow you mayby in the future but its easier to leave the system once every few weeks/month then to lose to many ships.

  5. This just shows how little an effect the New Order is having. Really revisiting old 'conquered' systems? Don't get too dizzy going round in circles.
    If I wished to be ganked by the New Order I would have to travel to these systems, probably removed several modules, downgrade to a retriever and wait around indefinitely. No thanks, I'll just stay where I am in complete safety and wait (probably for a long time).

    1. If you wished to be ganked? Why would you wish to be ganked? Why not pay the permit fee and support the rightful ruler of highsec? If you ask the wrong question, you'll get the wrong answer.

    2. The New Order is a non event while this blog would say otherwise it is too insignificant to make a difference. I AFK mine so therefore I am a target however the only way I can become a victim of the New Order is to help them (which I decline to do).
      'Why not pay the permit fee ' - err because I AFK mine that would immediately invalidate the permit. I hope your not a Agent/Knight as you don't seem to know the code!
      'support the rightful ruler of highsec?' - I assumed it was a scam. Ref : http://www.minerbumping.com/2013/01/forty-two-billion-in-shares-sold.html. Who needs accounts?

    3. You are aware that posting on this blog, trying to convince everyone that this blog is insignificant, is oxymoronic?

      "'Why not pay the permit fee ' - err because I AFK mine that would immediately invalidate the permit. I hope your not a Agent/Knight as you don't seem to know the code!"

      How was I supposed to know that you're a filthy AFK-miner, when you hadn't admitted it yet? You don't seem to know common sense!

    4. I am merely stating a fact that the New Orders effect was insignificant. I also never said the blog was insignificant. I actually like this blog. Your reading skills are pretty terrible but never mind.
      'Filthy'? I must admit most New Order Agents are pretty civil. You on the other hand do not seem to be. Before you degrade this into a slanging match I will leave you to your obvious shortcomings.

      Delete
    5. I've responded to you with as much civility as you've displayed yourself...which is probably more than you deserved, as a filthy afk-miner.

      Run along, then.

  6. For other areas Hurtoken was pretty heaving yesterday. They didn't even flinch when I rolled a stabber into the field.

  7. You call herding hundreds of miners around Highsec like cattle a non-event? :D
    Shit is unprecedented man!

    Oh wait, this is the classic miner "Pretend they don't exist and maybe they really won't" strategy.

    2. You know, if it were not for all the talk of "Rulers of high-sec"..."Saviour"...."Great Protector" I could actually get behind the new order. Botters are indeed a plague, the new order peoples (lack of capital letters intentional)are just a bunch of bullying, role playing dweebs (and no, never had a run in with you guys, I'm still flying the same Hulk I bought over two years ago) trying to look relevant. Nothing to see here....I'll just move along.

    3. And yet you are here, reading the blog and posting your nonsense. Interesting.

    4. Don`t you think its fair of me to at least come and see what its all about before spouting negative comments on other forums (which was a thought)? Like I said, your anti-botting stance is of interest to me...the self-importance bit...less so. I thought I was being mature, you evidently don't. Interesting.

    5. So irrelevant you had to post right :)

      Posting on other forums about how you think the New Order isn't worth posting about only increases the oxymoronic self-contradictory nature of your approach, actually. Is it fair? Sure, it's fair, you're making yourself a laughingstock with your ridiculous comments, but there's nothing unfair about that.

    8. I look forward to irrelevantly blowing up your Hulk.

      I look forward to seeing your ship get blown up too. However I might survive you definitely will not. :).
