TEST Alliance Deploys

2017-07-22

TEST Alliance Please Ignore (TEST) have recently begun a move East, with the current destination unknown. With the current political climate in the South East of New Eden, it would appear that their intention is to reposition with plans to go to war..

Currently staged in the southern region of Esoteria, TEST have spent the last few months building and establishing a large capital fleet. TEST leadership dubbed this ‘The Manhattan Project’, while their members have been making money, and enjoying the relative peace in the South.

Now, TEST has begun moving major subcap assets and a Capital Fleet of approximately 200 Capitals East, through Feythabolis. At the moment of writing this article, the TEST capital fleet is currently gating their way towards their target destination.

POSSIBLE TARGETS

Although TEST’s target destination is currently unknown there are several target possibilities:

Phoenix Federation

Phoenix Federation are currently based in Tenerifis and Immensea, and over the the last 3 months, the area between Phoenix Federation and Vanguard has been filled with political intrigues and diplomacy. Recently, The Bastard Cartel, living in Scalding Pass, left Vanguard Coalition and began the process of integrating into Phoenix Federation. Manifesto. have recently found themselves reset by Vanguard Coalition, and Phoenix Federation members have openly discussed attempting to set up Rental Space in the regions of Wicked Creek and Scalding Pass. With TEST moving East, and the tense situation in the South East being on a knife edge, it is possible that TEST are deploying with Phoenix Federation in an attempt to take on a weak looking Vanguard.

Vanguard Coalition

On the other side of the same coin, Vanguard is internally suggesting that they have cut away the inactive, and non-essential parts of their coalition. After resetting Hell’s Pirates, who reside in Etherium Reach, and Manifesto. who live in Wicked Creek, and Invidia Gloria Comes who lived in Detorid, while also crushing a renter uprising by Pestilent Legion in Detorid, the almost half of Detorid is now open to settlement. With the threat of war between Phoenix Federation and Vanguard, it is also possible that TEST are deploying to Detorid to defend Vanguard’s southern border.

Drone Regions Federation

With internal leaks in the past month showing Vanguard Coalition was considering resetting the Drone Regions Federation in order to create content, is it possible that TEST are moving into a position to attack the DRF from the southwest, and aid Vanguard with an attempted conquest of the Drone Regions?

With a war definitely brewing in the South East, and TEST currently moving East, where they are headed, and where they will go is currently unknown, but the drums of war are beating, and as the situation becomes clearer, we will update this article.

UPDATE: As of 21:50 EVE, TEST appears to have set blue standings with SOLAR Fleet and are gating their capitals through SOLAR’s space.

UPDATE II: 22:45: TEST has continued around and North, reaching and moving through Oasa. This appears to confirm rumors on reddit that their aim is to move into Venal in order to strike at Darkness. This is said to be retribution for Darkness’ actions assisting NCdot at the end of last autumn’s Tribute War.

    Well they went East, but then they went North a fair bit as well, then a bit West.

    It looks like Cymek will not be freed from the tower in which they are currently being held.

    To be honest i dont think Test will go against fcon/phoenix since they are kinda allied with co2, just neutral to get some content nearby, but we assist each other for every relevant timer and dont camp each other/shoot structures I even think their leader dudes are part of the coalition leadership channel stuff. My bet is on vanguard since they most times assisted pl/nc against legacy in the past. And if im not completely retarded you have to go through vanguard space first if you want to go to dronelands, so i guess thats pretty unlikely since thats hostile territory and they would always have enemys in their back.
