Entry: six hundred fixty-six, supplemental one.
Over the past week, we've seen a recent resurgence of Pandemic Legion in the area.
When I first moved into Delve, it was pretty clear that they were taking control of one of the Blood Raider systems, PR-. They were around for a little bit, and then suddenly vanished.
Did they move? Did they lose interest? Did they take a break? I can't honestly say, but I can say what I see now.
Since coming back, PL hasn't been up to anything noteworthy except utter unexceptionalism. Kingmakers for hire with the heavy artillery, they seem to have forgotten how to use the smaller armaments more commonly available on markets. I refer of course to Supers and Subcaps respectively.
When PL does get it in them to do something, they don't have what you'd expect from a notorious mercenary alliance. Numbers are low on roams, topping out at twenty to thirty when they do happen. Roams themselves only appear to make it one system over, where large tech two bubbles are anchored on the undock and PL sits at range on the undock with Sniper-fit HACs and Battleships. From there, they simply insta-kill anything that undocks. To further their gatecamping aims, they set up drag bubbles from the gates toward the station, and snag any careless travelers to dock that way as well.
So, let's recap. A roam to the next sytem, to sit on a station in sniper subcaps for an hour or two with anchored warp disruption bubbles, with a fleet numbering between twenty and thirty.
Sounds pretty goddamn boring. To be honest, if that were me, I'd be questioning what the fuck I was doing with my life that THIS was how I got my shits and giggles. Upon examining this question, I'd quit the capsuleer life and go dig ditches. At least I'd get buff and have a sense of accomplishment at the end of the day.
Before you, casual browser of these public logs, thinks I'm raging at getting killed in this fashion, I dare you to find a recorded kill of me being killed in this fashion by PL. It did happen once against TEST/Goons a few weeks ago when the docking session change timer changed from thirty to ten seconds and I wasn't aware, but that's it. If you can find any recorded killmail of me dying to PL on the 1DH-SX undock, I'll eat my words. That said, it won't happen, as of now anyways.
So, back to the issue. What's fun about sitting on the undock for a few hours shooting fish in a barrel? I don't know quite honestly, since they aren't even looting wrecks like the Orphanage does, which declared war on Cascade Imminent today by the way. Maybe they feel like they're ruining someone's day, and maybe they are, but those are some pretty cheap thrills. I'm not sure, but even on bad days I think my right hand is more exciting a prospect.
Considering what PL recently considers elite pilot versus pilot, it's a pretty easy argument to make that Pandemic Legion actually sucks right now. Low morale, no imagination, no excitement, too much isk, and pointless ventures. To those of you in PL having to put up with this, I hope you fix it, or that you find something more worthwhile. If you don't, my condolences for your miserable existence.
