EVE Online is a game driven by the diversity of its players and huge corporations fighting for control of resources and territory. But what happens when there is less diversity and those fiery conflicts become little more than random shots across the bow? The Mittani explores this dilemma in this week's Sins of a Solar Spymaster #53 - A Tripolar Galaxy.
The political landscape of EVE is a tenuous thing at this moment. With the abrupt and total collapse of Atlas and subsequent demise of their bloc-partner, Against All Authorities, the number of functional power bloc in the game has reduced to three. Even during the dramatic polarization of the Great Wars, there remained at least four blocs in New Eden; we presently face a political vacuum where former blocs have either been killed off entirely or merged with each other.
