Today Junko Sidesweep, CEO of love squad and leader of Confederation of xXPIZZAXx announced the ending of the alliance.

He announced the news with a speech on Teamspeak, which you can find here: https://soundcloud.com/unidan/rip-in-pizza

But who are Pizza you ask?

Well pizza have been in the spotlight in recent months due to their campaigns against both Test Alliance Please Ignore and Tribal band during the Fountain war. While Test was busy up north in Fountain, Pizza took it upon themselves to harass Test and Tribal band moon POS’s and general logistical chain, making life much more unpleasant for many in Delve and Period Basis. They quickly established themselves as a capable bomber force along with dabbling in Black ops battleships drops as well as the occasional Talwar gang into other regions. But as Test and Tribal band moved on to other things pizza quickly found itself missing something, something vital, an objective. As Pizza looked elsewhere for fun, they found themselves aligned with Black legion increasingly. With the war kicking off between Solar/Black legion/Stainwagon and the N3, Pizza allied to Black legion and joined in the fight on their side, recently i sat down with Junko Sidesweep to talk about all things Pizza.

Q. flatterpillo > So recently you announced the official closing down of pizza, what was the main driving force behind this decision?
A. Junko Sideswipe > basically our leadership was not able to dedicate the time needed to run an alliance consisting of multiple corps. Several of our motivating FC’s and content generators, including myself, have more obligations to real life than we had in the past and i would rather close pizza and give my corp content than see it rot from inactivity.

Q. flatterpillo > Black legion were probably your best know ally, how did this relationship start off? why do you think your two alliances were drawn together?
A. Junko Sideswipe > it started way back when pizza was new, we were on friendly terms with their leadership at the time, I think it was mfume and we tagged along on some fleets and let them know about some reinforced R64s. One year ago we got back in touch with Elo Knight through my director womyn power, and made an effort to help them out in their venal shenanigans, we suggested they come down to Delve soon after and roll test in a big deployment, we worked together quite a bit on that, had some great fleets we found we just got along really well, we had a similar goal in the game, which was basically to fuck with sov entities while remaining mobile and living in NPC areas.

Q. flatterpillo > Is this why you have decided to move your corporation, love squad, into black legion?
A. Junko Sideswipe > There is no better nullsec alliance in the game that suits our interests more than black legion, no other corporation, alliance, or coalition has ever had the cohesion or respect we receive from them.

Q. flatterpillo > Confederation of xXPIZZAXx was best known for its superb bombing runs, was this a goal for the alliance or did it come around naturally over time?
A. Junko Sideswipe > it grew naturally, especially after the buff where bombers wouldn’t de-cloak each other in a group. We saw -A-‘s failed invasion of Delve, and wheniminspace ran some numbers, and he realized all these tier 3 BC fleets could be wiped out with only a handful of bombs, (like 4 or 5) that really pushed us into bombing, the fact that we could wipe out tens of dudes all at once with very little numbers was perfect for us.

Q. flatterpillo > What would you say Pizza’s main goal was in its lifetime?
A. Junko Sideswipe > our main goal was really to just stay active, enjoy the game, make sure people learn from their mistakes, harvest some tears and better our skills over time.

Q. flatterpillo > Do you think there is a possibility of seeing pizza come back in one form or another in the future?
A. Junko Sideswipe > sure, give me another TEST or TRIBE in eve and we’ll be there blopsing their carriers, awoxing their renters and bombing their fleets on jump bridges.

Q. flatterpillo > have you ever considered going after a renting empire such as Brothers of Tangra or Northern Associates?
A. Junko Sideswipe > Well the problem with going out into drone regions is that there’s no NPC space out there to base out of. like I said in my speech, we went 60 jumps out there to find renter carriers in 2011. Hopefully with the new expansion, and the reduced warp times, that might change the amount of time investment required but it’s pretty difficult to find good npc staging systems to base out of in this game from which we can assault certain geographic areas. I think this is the biggest problem for an alliance like ours on how it operates and how to minimize the amount of time spent wasting roaming around looking for targets.

Q. flatterpillo > With the closing of pizza, i fear this may be the last time this question may be relevant so I shall ask it now. What is your favourite pizza?
A. Junko Sideswipe > cheese pizza with spinach and feta on top
Junko Sideswipe > I’m serious, my favourite pizza toppings are spinach and feta, you gotta try it dude.
flatterpillo > im more of a fan of the simple cheese and tomato maybe a pepperoni 🙂
Junko Sideswipe > yeah, to each their own.

flatterpillo > Well thank you very much for your time, I wish your corporation very well in the future and perhaps we shall see Pizza reborn one day in a blaze of bombs 🙂
Junko Sideswipe > yeah thank you, we’ll still be out there bombing for Black legion as love squad.

And so there you have it folks, another one bites the dust. Rest In Peace Pizza … your bombing runs shall never be forgotten.

    Much respect to Pizza. Truly respected their bomber skills which they will now use to buff up BL even further.

      too bad you stuck with those retards in bombers bar. you always fced your shit straight. plus not crying every time something went wrong like tempelman was always a plus. was fun messing with the guy though

      1. Seraph IX Basarab

        Bombers Bar was always more about training new people. I tried to have us advance beyond just that but there were simply too many people higher up, Temp included, that wanted to remain where we were unfortunately, hence the departure. I won’t comment on his FCing style, however.

    awesome guys, still remember when i use to play and on my last day me and a buddy decided to go out in a blaze, went with 2 command ships fully decked, drugged and officer fit, passed 2 pizza guys in low sec asked if they wanted to join our attempt at 2manning an 0.0 entry, “yeah sure” they replied, never met before, we did, killed 10 camping ships another 10-15 fled the field then station camped some carriers and later died to a fleet of 50+ from the gate camping force earlier, still killed another 20 ships then cap=gone=dead

    good times and peace real PVP:ers join me and the rest in RL now 😉

    Oh noes not a irrelevant npc griefing alliance dieing! please say it aint so. All they did was bomb (no skill after cloak patch) and run talwars because their pilots had little to no skill points. Who gives a fuck if they die or not. This is hardly fucking news.

        Not everyone that comments on here is from some named alliance you want them to be. Just saying. Sometimes people just think you aren’t relevant. Get over it.

        November 8, 2013 at 00:41
        1. so long

          exactly what this person said. i am not from test nor do i give two shits about test, and i dont need to be in test to think pizza recruiting practices and the general company kept are quite bad. but all in all the death of the alliance proves how disfunctional it was. it doesnt have a target for a month and the alliances crumbles….quite a foundation that alliance was built upon.. one could argue it survived this long due to the butthurt towards test lol

          November 8, 2013 at 01:07

        Find the weakest links and exploit them, which is the most obvious tactic since the dawn of time…
        Nothing happened in pizza that havent happended a bilion times before and will happen again tomorrow….
        Moving along…

    R.I.P. Pizza. I still remember a minor I-hub fight, when a dozen of Pizza guys helped us and Gorgons quite a bit to kill a few N3 slowcats caught in our drag bubble by bubbling the main slowcat pack and killing the whole flight of their fighters in a single bombrun.

    Pizza were competent pilots and worth their weight in gold when it came to educating Tribe on what not to do and how to live with covert ops in your systems on a regular basis. They showed all of eve how powerful bombers can be. I will miss them.

    Too many small entities are being swallowed up by the large blocs. This is not good for the long term health of nulsec, and the game at large.

      No one was good at educating Tribe.

    So shooting somewhat competent pilots is just too difficult. I know!! Let’s disband! Problem is Delve, PB, and the renters there are so sparse it’s hard to find anyone at all. It’s a waste land of nothingness. Can’t shoot Goon friends but yes, lets just claim there’s too much RL responsibility and “we have to spend more time with our family”. One less scrub alliance in the game almost no one has heard of. That’s how slow Eve news is right now, Pizza packing it in is “news”.

    What the hell, ‘sup with the romantic music and the guy talking on the brink of crying? Jesus christ mate, this is just a game.

    No more easy targets and they disband. Yeah I can see how they’re real fucking good. What happened dudes? Did you get a false sense of confidence farming TEST and Tribe, and then what? In for a shocker when trying that shit on others and all the sudden the challenge made eve not fun anymore and no one wanted to log? Hahahaha how utterly pathetic!! Do us a favor unsup and delete the eve client.
