EN24 Has learned that CO2 has lost control of all of their Citadels. Information that has come in via this reddit post

The following information has been reported by multiple sources and we are working to verify:

  • Circle of Two’s Keepstar and Capital in 68FT-6 was transferred to a corp outside of C02 and now appears to have been transferred a 2nd time to Goonswarm in the Imperium
  • The Judge admits on a stream that he managed to take over a trillion ISK in both currency stolen from wallets and assets. This includes a titan that was owned by GigX.
  • The following was broadcasted by The Mittani to all Imperium Members:

(11:17:47 PM) directorbot: ARYTH AND THE JUDGE SEND THEIR REGARDS – PREPARE FOR A PR- STYLE HELLCAMP – HICTORS NEEDED ON DECK – VENGEANCE – VENGEAAAAAAAAAAAAAANCEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

~~~ This was a broadcast from the_mittani to all at 2017-09-12 03:17:57.637807 EVE ~~~

  • C02’s Fortizars appear to now have been transferred to TEST Alliance
  • C02 sources state that the C02 Alliance wallet as well as the BALKA (GigX’s Corp) has been emptied with unconfirmed sources stating it was the Judge who emptied them as well as transferred all the structures.
  • Upon contacting TEST High Command, Dran Arcana (TEST Head Diplomat), stated that “TEST is accepting refugees and of course, Dreddit is Recruiting”
  • A source within the leadership of the military forces opposing C02 and Triumvirate stated that this plan was put into motion after C02 began attacking its neighbors. After all diplomatic efforts failed a covert operation was initiated to begin ‘flipping’ a majority of the C02 CEOs and Fleet Commanders. Once critical mass was reached “The Judge” was encouraged by a 3rd party to seize the assets and structures within C02 and that he would have support to do so.
  • TEST Alliance has been granted docking rights at the former C02 Keepstar (now owned by the Imperium)
  • It appears that multiple forces worked on this covert operation with one group flipping CEO’s and FC’s while Aryth of Goonswarm apparently offered the Judge ‘a way out.’ The Judge released a statement explaining his actions in a statement on Reddit (posted below).
  • Sources within TEST state that they have set the Imperium ‘Blue’ and have granted Imperium Military Forces access to Legacy Coalition Space.
  • The following was broadcasted to all TEST members:

    Also, this is kind of a fantasy moment for goons right now. We will be bluing them temporarily and allowing them safe passage through our space while they play with their new food for the next week or so. SENT BY Dran Arcana to All

  • Cpt Patrick Archer of Triumvirate dispelled rumors that his alliance is evaccing and will continue to fight on. The possible loss of Circle of Two as a military partner leaves them alone in the current Southern War against Legacy Coalition, DRF, and Phoenix Federation.
  • It has been confirmed that the new Circle of Two directors have reset Triumvirate and that there is a group within Circle of Two working to take control of the alliance from GigX
  • The Judge has commented on Reddit that The Imperium paid him 300 Billion ISK for the 68FT- Keepstar and in his AMA he stated he intends to join Goonswarm.
  • In a statement on a stream GigX stated that Circle of Two will continue to fight. Multiple FCs and members of Circle of Two  have sided with and continue to support GigX.
  • GigX has stated publicly that his accounts have been permanently banned.

UPDATE: The following statement was posted by “The Judge” on reddit:

To the members of CO2,

I’ve been a member in CO2 for 5 years. Half a decade. Even in EVE this is a long time. I started as a normal member in Redhogs, moved to Balkan Mafia as a Diplomat and eventually took over as Head Diplomat for CO2. The first few years in CO2 were marked with a few bumps, but overall it was amazing. We were growing and our leadership was upbeat and well manned.

This started to change after World War Bee. We lost a number of key members of leadership and most of what was left went inactive. I will admit, I started to become more and more consumed with CSM duties so I didn’t give as much attention to the alliance itself from that point on, but one reason was more impacting than any… gigX projected his hate of CCP and how they were developing the game onto me. After all, the CSM works with CCP which in most peoples minds makes us close enough to get as much hate as developers themselves.

After everything I’d dealt with over the last 18 months, what pushed over the edge? The breakdown of Legacy. I was in Iceland walking down a street with BRAVE leadership member Yukiko Kami when I got a ping from gigX with the now famous Doomchincilla leaks. Yukiko had no idea himself, but soon it was confirmed from his side just as it was mine. I was shocked that things could fall apart so spectacularly so quickly, and was frustrated that we (CO2) had taken this route. I had asked our leadership to calm down and not blow up our coalition. Both sides (TEST+complacent alliances / CO2) were at fault, taking blue status from people we each didn’t like and making moves without informing each other.

gigX has expressed his wish to disband CO2 for many months now, driving away good corps who found out like Totally Into Spaceships. What did these corps, who were loyal and simply lost faith in their leadership get in return? They were shit talked in private channels, undermined and even one was removed for wanting a meeting with gigX to boost their morale and understand what was happening. Good people treated badly. That is something I can’t keep turning a blind eye to. Aryth from Goonswarm offered me an out, and I’m taking it.

Why did I do it this way? Partly because of how much I’ve put into CO2 and wanting to leave with something to show for it. Partly because gigX needs to let CO2 die and move on with his life. Partly because some of these corps that have been removed deserve some of their effort back themselves. While I know people will hate me for this action purely because of the fanatical culture that exists in CO2, I want you to know that my aim was never to hurt the line member of CO2. Maybe one day we will fly together again, but it won’t be under the leadership of gigX.

-The Judge

As we learn more information we here at EN24 will provide the latest confirmed status of this Coup Event at CO2.
