Breaking Up Is Hard to Do

I was pointed to an interesting update on the Goon situation by a corpmate:


It looks like either the Goons end comes via a of a taste of their own medicine, or a series of serious blunders have lead to collapse and PR damage control.  Either way nothing could be a more fitting end for Goonswarm.  I know they will return in a new form, just like BOB did, but not without some goon-tears along the way.  With the changes in Dominion making the large power blocks so vunerable, this year promises to be full of unrest in 0.0 politics.

It is more than a little poetic that Goonfleet will end alongside Band Of Brothers.  These two names have left their marks across the history of EvE and probably won't return as the powers they once were, but they have ended with Hollywood style.


  1. GoonSwarm ain't gone they are just temporarily splintered (SOLODRAKBANSOLODRAKBANSO and some other alliances), the main problem is that the Alliance+GoonFleet CEO has quit EVE taking 1.5t of assets with him.

    So they will probably return with another name, perhaps they're gonna make use of the BoB alliance they own, who knows.

  2. I am interested to see how it all pans out. I agree he will probably return with a new character and a lot of isk. I also agree that the goons are probably never gone. It has made for some interesting 0.0 drama.
