|TEST Sovereignty and Outpost counts as of this morning|
During Delve War II, the Goons rather famously took 30 days to conquer the entire region. In those days, to conquer space, you had to knock down a truly frightening number of towers. The Goons took a lot of crap for winning Delve by "pushing a button." After it was over, many of them went to a lot of trouble to remind people that there was the not inconsiderable matter of knocking 500+ POSs down, too.
Since then, each progressive "great war" has been less and less impressive as the sides involved have cared about it less and less. The NC fell after only a few major super-cap battles. RA was pushed out of the drone regions in only a few weeks. The conquest of Branch and Tenal took only a matter of days. And now the CFC has conquered Delve and Querious in about two weeks and with Nulli Secunda's public withdrawal, Period Basis should be in CFC hands before the weekend.
In short, compared to Delve War II, the CFC will have taken half the time to conquer three times as much space with maybe a quarter of the work.
In the meantime, it leaves a single alliance in control of more than a quarter of the map. 17 days ago during the SOTG, Mittens said that deciding what the next step would be when the CFC was into Catch and on Provi's doorstep was "laughably premature" or words to that effect. Except that two days ago, the CFC started launching what appear to be major fleets deep into Catch and scoring well against -A- fleets there.
Guess it wasn't so premature after all... time to decide.
