mircea_popescu: Mocky yes, actually. both as current "checkpoint" mechanism and otherwise. but you gotta also familiarize self with "fleet in being" concept, discussed in logs pluriously.

mircea_popescu: mod6 you understand what i mean by "fleet in being" ?
mircea_popescu: in this sense, a good iB in back pocket as you say plays the strategic role of "fleet in being", in that it protects the old shit from too violent a crisis.

mircea_popescu: "A Sansha super carrier called a Revenant is worth approx. 300bil ISK due to being rare in the game. Probably worth more now due to the recent loss from Grath in Pandemic Legion. 1st person to lose one. Seems to be a setup, where Black Legion had a massive fleet waiting to counter drop them."
