There you have it. Long time TEST Alliance CEO Montolio has resigned from his position as CEO (Or at least that’s what he has announced on his Reddit account). He left Ingen Kerr and Fras Siabi in charge.
Shit was too much work, it wasn’t fun anymore. We had friends for strategic reasons not because we actually liked them. Internal politics was shit. Running a space empire was shit. Being on call for EVE 23/7 was shit.
I love TEST and I love Dreddit, I have friends in both. I didn’t steal anything on my way out or disband/kick anyone. I just couldn’t handle the situation we were in.
It is entirely my fault that we ended up in that situation, all I can say is that it was fun up until it wasn’t. I would never run a coalition again, it changes you.
Ingen Kerr and Fras Siabi have the wheel now.
As an interesting bit. His Titan Alt is now in Pandemic Legion.
Riverini received the following scoop:
(11:36:53 PM) montolio: Now that I am freed from the ~burdens of leadership~
(11:36:55 PM) montolio: FUCK RAIDEN
And he managed to get a hold of Montolio who confirmed in fact that he resigned his post as TEST Alliance leader. He cited the following reasons:
Montolio: I resigned
EN24: why? I know you stated reasons, but are the ulterior motives?
Montolio: I wasn’t having fun, We couldn’t have a war, We had allies we didn’t like, etc. It was shit, not fun.
EN24: so, you are out?
Among other cited reasons, Raiden.’s involvement in the Thorn Alliance scandal and continued pressure (from his allies) to keep the current nullsec stalemate in place.
We went in game and checked if in fact Montolio had left TEST alliance:
He’s listed as “retired” while boodabooda is tagged as CEO. We’ll see how this shores up, this isn’t the first time Montolio is out of TEST Alliance leadership, as he did pull a stunt against Eve News24 a few years back, which turned out to be untruthful.
Tonight has been a long night. There is a lot of work that needs to be done with TEST going forward. The three page masterpiece of a CEO update that I was about to push tonight became pointless and I now get to spend the weekend writing a new one. In any case, I have conferred with Ingen, Beffah, and Sort Dragon and we have decided that it would be best to toss the “official” herding position of leader of the HBC over to Sort Dragon, or as he will now be know Surgeon General Sort Dragon (I’m drinking ok?). This will allow us in TEST to spend the time focused on fixing TEST’s problems and going on a 30 day purge diet to get the toxins and shit out. Stay tuned for a long slurry of words and sexual innuendos sometime this weekend. “
I have passed Upvote (TEST Executor) to Fras. I have passed Dreddit CEO to BoodaBooda.
This has been a crazy few hours. Montolio offered the CEOs (he had both B0RT and UPVOT previously) after I shouted at him in a PM and told him I was leaving. This after I got home from work to find Shortbus in a fervor, already convinced it was time to run straight down a path just this side of Karttoon.
I took the keys from Montolio so they’d be safe and so, if necessary, I’d have the leverage to force people to slow down, take a deep breath, and think.
Fras and I talked. He is the man to lead this alliance. He’s keeping me on as his wingman. This mean I’ll be dead before this is over but I’ll also get to bang 1980s Meg Ryan. You win some, you lose some.
Expect to see more announcements in the coming days. Be excited, bros.
