One unintended consequence of Fweddit and Wolfsbrigade/Lost Obsession leaving FW is the poor state in which the factional warfare new comer Agony Empire has been left in the Kamela staging system.
Agony Empire has traditionally being a NPC null-sec alliance and the different FW culture produced some chaos during their first weeks in. It was not usual to hear questions (even from FCs) on how the gates and complexes worked. This agravated when less than 24 hours after the Fweddit bail, the Minmatar Militia forces took the Kamela fortress and effectively neutralized Agony Empire by locking their parked capital fleet and assets inside the captured station.
Role players wasted no time in claiming victory:
Elements of the Tribal Liberation Force performed ably over a several-day marathon of an operation, securing both Kourmonen and Kamela. The named systems were staging areas of the 24th Crusade, and the fall of both will no doubt disrupt the operations of many capsuleers flying under the Empire’s banner.
It was a pleasure serving alongside TLF pilots during this campaign. Their fighting spirit, organization, and leadership held firm throughout.
One of the most notable contributions, however, came from Wolfsbrigade and the Last Obsession alliance. Once having served the 24th Crusade, these former State Protectorate militants cast off their colors just as the Kamela operation was reaching its height. Not only did they rescind their allegiance, Wolfsbrigade turned upon their former comrades and camped them in-station, helping to ensure TLF space superiority in the surrounding systems. Truly, their efforts in enabling a Republic victory will not be forgotten.
Finally, I must offer my respects to the Agony Unleashed pilots. It is rare for an organization to enter a lost battle on the losing side. It is even more rare for such an organization to fight with dogged tenacity and skill despite the odds. One would imagine that your assymetrical tactics would have been more effective had Wolfsbrigade not so obstinately camped the station undock. I doubt that I am alone in saying that I look forward to meeting you on the battlefield again.

This doesn’t mean the fight is over for Agony Empire with their proverbial ships already burned up, expect a good couple of fights and maybe a “Cinderella Man” story for the Amarr Militia.
