TL;DR: Raiden and Initiative joins the Honey Badger Coalition, Against All Authorities finds itself in a start position:
RAW: Raiden. and INITDOT jump to Pandemic Legion/TEST ranks.

Friends! To further my use of old GOT memes, winter is indeed coming.
The Initiative and [redacted] are deploying to reinforce us, Honey Badger Coalition alliances will need to contact them to work out standings. I will speak more on this during the State of the Alliance (that is not yet scheduled). Others are coming.
Against All Authorities abusive and brash handling of external relationships will soon see them completely isolated and without friends. Red Alliance lost its single largest corporation today. Give them nothing. But take from them everything.
Our culture, collaboration, and mutual respect are the path forward. Nobody wants to live under high lord Makalu and emperor Herculetz fueling RMT and excesses of pride and ISK.
Videbo te mox Catch.

So the side effect of me [redacting] one of the new allies coming to fight by our side was that -A- is literally diplo-bombing every ally they have in a frantic attempt to stop the bleeding.
Unintended benefits :smugdog:

Oh look, an -A- ally that has panicked because -A- contacted them is now starting talks with us. What a lovely chain reaction.
They didn’t even know before you talked to them -A-, thanks!

And now a lesson in how to alienate people!

Legolasita > Traditionally they’ve been under the same umbrella, but once an organisation grows too big, it’ll fracture… i.e. CFC
Legolasita > And Montrolio or whomever thinks he can compete with Mittens
Bides for interesting times, for those of us who likes to pull the trigger
Maybe you don’t have friends because you believe every relationship requires there be a pet and a master. Maybe you have to intimidate your renters and allies because there is nothing to like about you. The era of feudal empires and pets is over, -A- is a reminder of what EVE was not what EVE is or will be.

Ladies and gentlemen, the [reacted] in my earlier broadcast is now public knowledge – so far those of you that don’t know: Raiden will be joining the Honey Badger Coalition.
There will be cultural issues at first, but we can bring them around to our side if we are patient and we let them work out some bad habits.
The Honey Badger Coalition will have more supercapitals then any enemy we currently face with these new additions to our community.
Four more alliances are currently in talks to live the -A- side, I encourage you to view these logs to see how some -A- line membership is handling this news: www.kugutsumen.com/showthread.php?14205-Deja-Vu-Delve-Querious-Period-Basis-and-Fountain&p=435345&viewfull=1#post435345

We walk the shitpoasting walk, so you can avoid the shitpoasting talk.
I will highlight Malcanis (from Vanishing Point) comment on how the news was received from within INITDOT Ranks:
Corp chat was pretty positive last night, although admittedly it’s a pretty big surprise for everyone.
Still, we’ve never been afraid to adapt when circumstances called for it. We weren’t afraid to leave the NC when they were at the height of their power. Curse has been pretty good to us but as Blis has correctly pointed out, the days of the medium sized independent alliance being able to force any fights are definitely over. What everyone really would have liked to do was a repeat of the RCF* campaign we did back in 2011 to grief the ever-living shit out of RA. But that just wasn’t a realistic option any more.
If we wanted to keep operating in K-space, then it was obviously a question of “which coalition do we join?” Obviously we weren’t going to join the Russian-speaking, SOLAR-lead mob, and after a years of seeing the results of working with -A-, enthusiasm for closer integration with them was… not high. That only left the HBC and the CFC as realistic choices. The CFC don’t need us, and joining the strongest coaltion on the map is kind of not what we’re about. So it’s Badgertime.
I hope Darkside don’t get lonely in G-0.
*Random Curse Faggots, mostly us, Gypsy Band and those other guys who for the life of me I can’t remember but fought really well. Sadly both they and Gypsy have long departed Curse.
