Nullsec is a dangerous place. Not just for the individual pilot, but for the multitude of pilots who make up alliances. We’ve seen quite a few Alliances rise and fall. Just recently, we reported that TJA Alliance will be disbanding. Today, we report to you yet another Nullsec Alliance will be laying to rest.

To: Soldiers Of New Eve,
It has been one hell of a journey. In March we began our full-scale assault on the Kalevala expanse, and evicted Banderlogs/Bloodbound. Over the course of April/May we took the entire region against all odds, and with our single allied alliance we held our region for 6 weeks against a loose coalition of 30,000 players, with just under 2500 allied pilots.
Since then we have fought though Vale of the Silent, Geminate, Tribute, Catch and Immensea. Since we formed we have fought against the odds as an independent alliance. However, since SOLAR returned as the dominant Drone-region power, the opportunities for our alliance to independently hold sov in EVE have almost completely disappeared.
Over the 7 months we have flown together SONE has punched far above its weight, and had some fantastic fun. I’d like to personally thank all of you for making it such an awesome time. Although it hasn’t been easy (we’ve been constantly moving and fighting since we formed), we’ve had some truly great fights, and made a lot of new friends.
Once again, a huge amount of thanks to all of you, those where were with us at the beginning, and those who have joined during our travels and stuck out adversity with us – you guys and gals made EVE worth playing for us.
Unfortunately, much of UNSOL and alliance leadership no-longer have the will or vision needed to keep this incarnation of SONE alive. Our corporation will be moving to a quiet 0.0 alliance to rebuild our corporation, rest our burned-out pilots and replenish our ISK reserves. This means essentially that SONE will be disbanding within the next 2 weeks.
To everyone in SONE know that you have been immense fun to fly with, and you are always welcome to come join us on our future ventures.
Thank you all,
UNSOL CEO/ Alliance exec.
SONE was recently pushed out of Sov and had communicated they would be heading to NPC to rebuild. This no longer appears to be the case. I’m sure some of these corporations will find homes with their neighbors, bolstering their numbers. Will be interesting to see which way they are pulled. HBC, N3, CFC, Solar, NCC, -A-. Even with the death of an Alliance, the mark it makes on the eve universe is still felt.
