We’ll start the day with what seems to be the final nail in the -A- coffin.
The Final Curtain Call – Makalu Zarya’s Against All Authorities Farewell to Leaving Corps
The Final Curtain Call
I’ve been on the verge of making this post a number of times over the last 6 months or so, I have written it fully twice before, and twice I have decided to not go through with it, however 3rd time is the charm and it seems like now it is the time. There have been a lot of questions as to what the alliance will do in the future and specifically as to what I will do in the future. I have probably gotten around 30 convoes and messages just today from various parts of eve wondering where I will be going and what I will be doing…to people I ignored…sorry I probably just don’t like you.
The last couple of months were not some of the best in the history of -A-, but like I’ve kept on saying everyone has their ups and downs and we are no exception to the rule. In my mind and in the minds of a lot of other people -A- was and perhaps at least in spirit will forever be one of the best alliances the game has seen. Other alliaces came and went, -A- kept its course though most of the tourbulent times. Perhaps at times it wasn’t the right course, but looking back at things and saying what should’ve been done back then is easy. We cannot change the past however… until someone invents a time machine in any case. Which brings us to the situation that we are in.
Over the past few weeks I’ve been repeatedly asked by certain people, who are no longer in this alliance, to take over the alliance leadership and basically do things the way they wanted them done. I will not point fingers at who those people were and I will not name names, however it doesn’t require a great deal of imagination to figure it out. Each time I said no, partly because of time commitment that it implants, but mostly because Herc has honetly done a great job as the alliance leader, whether people want to accept that or not. I will not try to change their minds on the issue, take it or leave it whichever you prefer. Finally some corps decided to leave in search of greener pastures and the not-so-illusive blue donut. As temping as it is to blame them I will not even do that. People want to go have fun their own way and after all Eve is a game and I respect that. Some of the actions of those said people before and after they left I have little respect for, but at this point it does not matter. At the end MVN was forced to leave mostly because they were the only people left in USTZ and this I totally understand.
This brings us to the current situation and specifically to what I will be doing in the future, which is why I’m writing this anyway. Maka as the charachter itself will remain a permanent member of Rage and Terror. RAT is my home in eve and I don’t think I will ever find another one like it. Don’t be surprised to sometimes see me in fleets in the south with whoever still remains in -A- flying alongside the new russian alliance in stain. As for my other toons I will be heading off to fly with MVN in Black Legion for the time being.
I will still be around to discuss any -A- related issues and whatnot that people might or will have in the future. FCing for -A- has been the greatest honor of my eve career and I highly doubt that there will ever be another alliance and another group of people that will come close to what -A- has been for me. Fly safe whereever the stargates take you.
From what we know, Rage and Terror will be staying in the Stain region by joining one of the Stain residents.
Russian Thunder Squad Leaves
Is it rumored that Russian Thunder Squad will leave for either Red Alliance or Red Overlord (this might change).
The Maverick Navy Goes to Black Legion.
Perseus Kallistrato’s alliance The Maverick Navy will be joining Black Legion.’s ranks in the north.
What about the rest?
In the case of Hirr, we are told they will try their luck in the factional warfare lands. In case you have lost track I’ll describe where the rest of the corps went. Black Water USA went to Pandemic Legion while Macabre Votum is already confortable among the Northern Coalition. ranks.
The following correction was sent:
rtsq leave -a- for new russian alliance “Enemy . Unknown” [-UFO-], (also some of RAT., Gypsy Band, SUR, FFC, R.N and DCBI)
( we hate Red Alliance )
