@everyone Effective in 24 hours
ARMY OF NEW EDEN will be resetting all DRF entities as well as will be moved out of all drf sov by the end of the 24 hours. Its not been a fun ride for ARMY in DRF as to many lies and betrayals go uncheck and as well as to many people are allowed to do as they please when agreements are in place. Again 24 hours ARMY will make a very quiet departarture from DRF and its SOV holdings. We ask to not be interrupted while moving assets to a safer region of eve with better friends and allies that we have known for years.
@UAxDEATH and @[X.I.X.] Karer thank you both for the grand gestures you have done for myself and ARMY
@Fafer same goes to you
@[DIVE] Tytalus Warden thank you for being a good ally and giving me best advice
@[IRC] Elusive love ya boo boo See you on the battlefield everyone 24 hours from now thank you all
ARMY was a long-standing member of Fidelas Constans-led Phoenix Federation before Triumvirate. and its allies evicted and caused the subsequent collapse of, the fledgling coalition. Like many former Phoenix Federation alliances after them, they left for Drone Regions Federation in Etherium Reach. It comes as a surprise for some that they are now moving coalitions again, this time to go assist Pandemic Horde in Cloud Ring.
On the nature of the exit, I was able to speak with Pantsufan:
ARMY has a lot of friends that are still in DRF. We as an alliance decided that we could no longer stay inside of it. It was a unanimous decision within ARMY to leave. We all decided that going North would give us the growth we needed as an alliance. Before anyone thinks otherwise, ARMY made alot of mistakes in Etherium Reach. Even the choice to go to ER was a huge mistake on my part. We were given a plethora of information from Jay, former Head Diplomat of DRF and everything he told me and my members was a lie. When we moved into ER, ARMY was promised certain number of systems for giving up our sov in Tenerifis, and then GOTG invaded and everything was placed on hold yet never followed up on and instead forgotten about and promised to other alliances. Army did not bring the PvP force we had in tens to ER either that alone was our fault.
From here ARMY wants to thank everyone that we have had dealings with and fought along side they face taught us many things in the past 2 years.
In addition, ARMY’s leadership team has released a statement, explaining in detail the reasons and events which led them to leave Drone Regions Federation. One of the primary factors was Jay Maricadie, who brokered the agreement between ARMY’s move from Phoenix Federation to DRF, which was not honored. It is important to note that after ruining diplomatic relations with Darkness-led Guardians of the Galaxy, amongst other entities, Jay Maricadie was ousted from his position as Head Diplomat so as not to cause any more damage. Prominent DRF fleet commander, Manfred Sidious even referred to Maricadie as a rogue diplomat.
Further compounding the issues dealing with Drone Regions Federation was the fact that despite agreeing that no Phoenix Federation alliances would take in corporations from ARMY when the move happened, the latter coalition’s own Head Diplomat, Saragossa, proceeded to absorb multiple corporations from ARMY before then moving into the same space that ARMY was promised in Etherium Reach.
It appears that these two diplomatic failures, along with the lack of PVP proactivity from their fellow Etherium Reach residents in trying to kill a hostile Fortizar, have caused ARMY to seek a new coalition to rebuild with. Attention remains on the DRF as they continue their war with Triumvirate. and their allies, as well as other potentially disgruntled alliance members of the coalition.
Since writing this article, I’ve had a fair few people in the comments, and on Discord, come tell me that several of the points made were wrong. The matter of the fact is, I cannot dictate the reasons that Pantsufan chose to pull out of DRF for. However, it is important to note that Saragossa’s own alliance SERIN did not directly absorb any corporations itself, but instead other PFED alliances did before. It’s also important to note that while SERIN did evict ARMY despite them both being part of DRF, Saragossa claims that it was done at the direction of DRF leadership.
