During the last cycle we saw an uptick in total undermining activity, with several Powers being affected; but none newly entering turmoil. Emperor Lavigny-Duval does remain in turmoil, slowly improving her economy by shedding another mildly unprofitable system.

Powerplay Report – Cycle 232

Emperor Arissa Lavigny-Duval completed what appears to have been a very smooth “self-turmoil” last cycle, successfully avoiding outside interference.

Dictator Yuri Grom’s turmoil in cycle 230 ended, losing the systems of San Guan and Garm — a total income loss of 74 Command Capital (CC) at maximum overheads. However, the reduced overheads of a smaller power has offset this loss and gives Grom a net gain of 111 CC.…

Powerplay Report – Cycle 229

The forces of Emperor Arissa Lavigny-Duval and SimGuru Pranav Antal both came very close to turmoil at the end of the last cycle — in each case, one more undermined system would have been enough to push them into turmoil, although not enough to do serious damage. However, as a…
