Last Man Standing

It has come to this.  The last remaining bastions of old Providence are under siege, the enemy has decided that fighting fair and with honor isn't something they'd be interested in.  So the combined forces of those arrayed against us have arrived in all their horrible glory.  At one point yesterday they had three Titans on grid in one system, nearly every gate was bubbled and camped and sbu's went up (or tried to go up) in every system held by Paxton.

Today and tomorrow will determine the fate of all of us that stand against the darkness.  In all honesty this is probably the last stand of a desperate group of pilots that refuse to go away easy.  We've known for weeks that this was probably the inevitable conclusion, and yet we've hung fast and strong and pushed back one attempt after another.  All the while our enemies grew stronger and less stupid, and eventually even a blind squirrel finds a nut.

This post will be short my friends.  I have reds to shoot.  Wish us well.  Despite whatever side you may find yourself aligning, the Eve Universe will be significantly less without Providence.  The Age of Small Gang Warfare appears to be drawing to a close my friends to be replaced with large blobs of Battleships and Carriers.  I don't know about you, but that is a much less interesting universe to me.

If you don't believe me, check out the killboards of the leading PvP Alliances, notice the numbers and shed a tear for our corner of the sandbox.
