Breaking news: C02 to disband


Header Art by Empanada

After a few weeks of silence, GigX called for both a CEO meeting and an impromptu State Of The Alliance (SOTA) to announce that the plan is to disband the alliance.

Gigx credits a number of issues to the fact that the Circle Of Two name attracts too much attention, and that they will never be able to settle down and take sov without being pursued for their name. With the last ditch attempt to take sov in Branch having failed when Pandemic Horde and Black Legion ditched their campaign, and given the information from their previous SOTA, it would not be unreasonable to assume that CO2 currently lack the funds to keep a nullsec alliance running smoothly.

A recording which has been made available to INN details the attempts made by GigX and Da Winci to try and find a home, ranging from finding a collective home for their most active corporations to merging the alliance into a single corp and widotting themselves into another alliance. All of the their discussed methods have not borne fruit, leading to the current decision.

Members have also been told that standings with Pandemic Horde will remain the same as players move around and extract their assets, possibly indicating that CO2 leadership recommends PH as a destination.

As always, INN will monitor and update our readers as the members of CO2 go their separate ways.

    say what you want about gigx but another alliance biting the dust that was not aligned truly with anyone is bad for content . Good luck to the corps that rejoined co2. Hope they land safe

    • Other than their brief exile to the south with TEST, CO2’s been a loyal minion of NCdot since their betrayal.

      It’s not like Co2 was unaligned with the major powers by choice – as though they embraced some noble ideology of independence. They simply ran out of organizations to betray (CFC / Imperium, Legacy, GOTG…). In the end, GigX was forced to admit that not even Pandemic Horde was willing to take them in. They’d have continued bouncing from patron to patron as long as there were any major powers left in EVE to tolerate the freeloading.

    The alliance was doomed ever since judgment day. Instead of a empire they have been a group of refugees that roam around. Good luck to all who are leaving CO2, I hope you find a good corp!

      They were doomed the second they made the decision to stab us in the back.

        Test ?

          TEST didn’t abandon us during the Casino War, TEST left the coalition to form their own, years earlier.

            Test abandoned the CFC at the time and then attempted to start a war with Fatal Ascension starting the Fountain War. They’ve definitely stabbed Goons in the back.

            That leadership is gone (and was retarded even by test standards). Test is far better run alliance now.

            PS: We want vily back.

            Test left the CFC on good terms. It was only after the moon re-shuffle that things went sour. A large part of that was PanFam whispering in the ear of Test leadership. A deal was prepared and agreed in principle between the CFC and Test. But the deal went unsigned as Test were a strong independent alliance that was now backed by PanFam. Once the Fountain War was lost by Test we then saw PanFam farm the hell out of Test for years. Test were involved in The Casino War against the re-named CFC. Once that war had reached a stale point PanFam went right back to farming Test again.

            Arguably from the CFC/ The Imperium perspective we have seen Test lose The Fountain War, get farmed by PanFam for years.

            From the Test perspective we have seen some revenge for The Fountain War in their contribution to The Casino War.

            But both of these groups have way more in common now. It could be said that both sides are happy to call it quits and to enjoy the obvious distress from PanFam.

            I mean I don’t mind Test, but we where 100% justified in invading fountain. Back when I used to do podcasts I talked to a lot of the current Test leadership. Sapporo is a very nice and down to earth dude. I was simply pointing out that Test as an entity has backstabbed us as well.

            It felt more like a “front stab” rather than a back-stab imho – heh.

            I agree with your other points. I also think that the Test of today realise that their choices back then were ultimately an error. One I think that their current leadership are less likely to repeat in the future.

            Both The Imperium and Legacy Coalition know that the greater enemy lays in PanFam as a whole.

    This is the most satisfying alliance failscade I have seen in a while. Those traitors got what they deserved in the end.

    RIP, mind the door doesn’t hit your arse, way out is that way —–>

    backstabbing scum, here’s to PH going the same way soon.

    GigX thought it would be an awesome idea to betray every coalition in the game, and he somehow convinced himself and all of Co2 that this would turn out well. Good farking luck with that. I guess the line members can go join PanFam now – they deserve each other.

    another cautionary tale of one organization failing for being to depending on one individual, hope those players get a good home after this and they continue giving more history to the game, GOTG should look this close because they are suffering some similar issues of leadership :S.

    Question, what does ‘widotting’ mean?

    December 3, 2018 at 10:39 AM
    • Moomin Amatin phuzz

      It comes from when an old alliance called Wildly Inappropriate folded into The Imperium and became a corp instead. Their ticker was “WI.”. It has since become a term for when any alliance folds and joins another. So in this instance Co2 are likely to fold into a different existing alliance. Hope that helps.

  • Red Alliance in its best days didnt give a fuck about all enemies around and fought well against everyone around. Those guys were tough and did not need allies to kill and destroy every single fucking entity around. One by one, they all faded or cascaded. The stamina of RED was unbelievable.

    CO2 could have been smth like that, but they want leave this world as smth weak, only to be forever forgotten. Wtf. Why.
