Breaking: TEST and Co2 Resetting


A short while ago, TEST bigwig Vily posted to Reddit a shocking development about the Legacy Coalition. Per the post, TEST and Co2 will be resetting each other in three days time. This is yet another turn of events in the rapidly heating up galactic southeast. As events between Co2 and other regional powers accelerated, it was expected that TEST would need to pick some sort of side. According to Vily’s post, this decision comes after about a week of diplomatic talks failed to produce a workable solution.

TEST has at this point made every effort to accommodate Co2 in all their endeavors save their choice to work with our long standing enemy and local content whore triumvirate. This was our only sticking point and sadly Gigx has chosen his relationship with triumvirate over his relationship with TEST.

TEST and Co2’s current relationship began after Co2’s abrupt and antagonistic exit from the Imperium during the Casino War. After the close of that conflict, the two alliances remained close. When PanFam began to evict Co2 from Tribute at the end of last year, TEST provided support. When it was clear that the pair’s holdings in the north would fall, they moved together to invade Stainwagon space earlier this year. Once the Russian coalition was pushed back to NPC space, each settled in. Recently cracks in the Legacy coalition came to light in a Reddit post claiming that Progodlegend had negotiated TEST into a corner that would see them working against Co2’s friend Triumvirate. With today’s development, it is clear those cracks ran far deeper than was evident. It seems that Co2 has again decided that the grass is greener on the opposite side of its current relationship. 


Update: A pastebin has appeared, apparently of chat logs between Dran Arcana of TEST and GigX of CO2.

    Has everything since Co2’s departure from the Imperium been some sort of sad comedy where other players only ever use Co2’s burning husk as a diplomatic tool against one another as Co2 themselves slowly burn away?

    • if by burning themselves away you mean they can form 300-400 people yeah, while gigx is megartard he still commands one of the strongest subcap alliances that can field a lot of caps/supers

      There is a reason TheJudge does diplo for CO2, and not Gigx 😉

    I have to say that everything the Goons said about gigX being a backstabbing #$%$@! is true. You get to say to the rest of Eve – told you so.

    Yep, if pastebin is true, then gigX is 100% asshole and Dran has a bucket of patience.

      It’s like everyone who didn’t read the original pastebin papers are finally realising this.

    Dran is the absolute most patient and skilled diplomat I have seen in years. I am in solitaire. He is A true professional guy that you don’t see all that often in a game of rage and maneuvers that is Eve these days. Though we have leas than 300 in our alliance he still treats us with space honor I don’t see anymore. Mad props to him for dealing with gigX.

    Maybe its a language barrier, maybe ‘sucking xix dick’ is some kind of pleasant sign off that g translate failed with..

      I once tried to interview a japanese alliance. I too know the pains of google translate.

    I read the transcript….wow, what a total jackass. No wonder they are a second rate alliance who’s only success comes from piggybacking off of someone else.
    Interesting to see TEST being the voice of reason. I remember the spiral into the Fountain War when TEST had a fail-cascade and unstable leadership. To their credit, TEST got better leadership and rebounded from that episode. Clearly they have invested in their diplos because Dran’s efforts in that transcript are nothing short of angelic trying to get a moron with more ego than talent to smarten up.

    The convo between Dran and Gigx paints a new light on TEST and Co2. Kudos to the TEST diplo.

    Heh, fuck Gigx. Once Co2 burns, good luck to him getting another leadership role.

    Just remebered this pastebin from 20 days ago (I wonder why). GigX DID get what was coming for him, didn’t he?
