Now, nobody lives foreverIt is with a heavy heart that I write this post. Our alliance has recently made the difficult decision to leave our home. While I have butted heads with the NRDS nature of the area at times I have always respected the work CVA has put into the area and the idea. I cannot help but feel that EvE is losing something that it will never get back with the fall of Providence and I am sad to see it go.
Nothin' stands the test of time
Oh, you heard 'em say "never say never"
But it's always best to keep it in mind
That every tower ever built tumbles
No matter how strong, no matter how tall
Someday even great walls will crumble
And every idol ever raised falls
And someday even man's best laid plans
Will lie twisted and covered in rust
When we've done all that we can but it slipped through our hands
And it's ashes to ashes and dust to dust
I have re-written this post twice because this is pretty huge for me personally. I want to mention the drastic change that CCP has introduced which has allowed so much upheaval. Obviously for the residents of Providence it has been a bad thing but I cannot help but believe that it has been a bad thing for EvE in general. I have always hoped for the increased openness of 0.0. However instead of coming at the expense of difficult to hold fringe systems it has come at the expense of systems within the heart of holders.
In the end though, no matter the circumstances, FA has left Providence. It has been one of the busiest periods in my EvE life since that decision was finalized. FA has now taken sovereignty as a "renter" and we have been working hard to setup shop. This has been a crazy process but the membership of my corporation has proven up to the challenge and many have worked long hours in logistical support. We are still in the "settling" stage so there is much work left to be done, but this is an exciting time for us.
When time permits there will be much more news about the experiences of living in space with our name on it soon, so stay tuned.
