I think the withdrawals were the result of several factors:
- Our performance on the field was outstanding. An amazing 94% vs Phoenix and a more expected 63% vs Nanotardz.
- Our tactics reduced the easy ganks & gave our enemies the choice of either engaging our fleet at a decided numerical disadvantage or staying docked & using alts to observe our conga lines.
- Our diplomatic efforts brought political pressure from the community to bear.
Now, back to mining. My production stocks are so low, I've had to resort to buy orders. :(
