EVE Online is a game of strategical warfare and discipline. To destroy your enemies, you have to utilize combat tactics that are aimed at ruining the gameplay experience of your foes and demoralizing them as you plan your next attack, patiently waiting for the perfect moment to deliver the killing blow. It's a subtle art to say the least and one that the spymaster knows well. Join The Mittani as he explores EVE war in this week's Sins of a Solar Spymaster #57 - The Art of Nullsec War.
Planning the conquest of a conquerable region is the rarest art in Eve Online, shrouded in more obfuscation and uninformed idiocy than even forensic counterintelligence. Only a handful of individuals at the highest level of alliance warfare have had an opportunity to try their hand at it; the vast majority fails, and the hundreds or thousands of pilots who follow them suffer for it. A single successfully planned war can create a reputation that lasts for years, and the failures follow would-be sky marshals forever.
