Well, we are back in 6NJ. And Black Legion are hitting our towers. Time to form up and defend. Doctrine up, and go get them. This will be awesome.
And it turns into a curb stomp.
And it isn’t once or twice. Its every time. Black Legion just kill the crap out of us.
Make no mistake: participation is low after our deployment. And morale with us is not as it should be. But add to that the fact that Black Legion are handing us our own scalps in every engagement? Well, this isn’t even competitive at this point. and it’s telling.
I was talking about it to a few alliance mates and I made the point: Is there shame in admitting you are not as good as you’d like to be?
I don’t think there is.
Sure, there is the bragging rights. Everyone wants to talk about how awesome they are, and how everyone is worse than their corp/alliance/coalition. But that can’t be true for everyone.
It’s okay to say: “We are not good enough for this fight”. And that is true with Black Legion. They are delivering savage beatings.
So, you get faced with a choice.
Stay, and be on the receiving end of negative morale as you get crushed over and over. And watch participation plummet as you do so.
Or make the choice to make a change, even if that choice will get you poked fun at.

I think Zeroniss made the right choice. We really need to get ourselves in a state where we are rolling together like a cohesive team. Things haven’t been their best, and getting us back to a state where we can compete or take part in good fights is a good place to be.
However moving the new Carrier I have when I don’t have the skills for it is going to be a bloody nightmare! KHAAANNN!!!!
