Regional Update: Coalition of the Willing Disbands, AtlasDOT Thrown to the Wolves

Just last week -A-, Atlas., Cascade Imminent and their host of allies were heralding tracking disruptor Drakes as the next unbeatable fleet doctrine, taunting PL to fight at every opportunity.  The future was so bright for this coalition; with over twenty alliances in tow they could field upwards three-hundred bodies at any CTA through Delve and Querious.  This coalition, however, would soon be tested after its leadership begged for Pandemic Legion’s full attention – a decision which will be questioned ad nauseam.

What a difference a week can make.  Prodding the sleeping giant proved to be disastrous. Four consecutive, highly-publicized and embarrassing defeats resulted in over one-thousand subcapital losses, half of Atlas.’s capital fleet, and an Aeon, being traded for under 30 Pandemic Legion kills.  With morale at an all-time low, individual entities in the Coalition of the Willing began to doubt the efficacy of the command structure; frustrated, the coalition which had hoped to unify itself against a common enemy had inadvertently fractured under the very pressure they brought unto themselves.  After just six days of fighting, The Coalition of the Willing was consumed by bickering and began falling apart.

Disgusted by Atlas.’s leadership, or lack thereof, the preponderant parties of the Coalition of the Willing (-A- and FAIL) decided that the massive morale blows they were taking were not worth it and subsequently withdrew their forces, leaving Atlas. to lie in the bed they made for themselves.  This in turn caused the rest of Atlas.’s allies to reset Atlas. and move on to new ventures – excluding poor Atlas. from any talks.  Being a familiar place for Atlas., they responded by putting on a resilient front.  Cries of “PL will leave March 1st”, “an alliance is the people who make it”, “don’t worry our allies will back us up” and “we will get through this together even if we have to move back to lowsec!” were heard throughout their alliance meeting.  Building themselves up, Atlas. made another desperate move and hired Noir Mercenary Group – who they deemed to be on par with Pandemic Legion – to aid them in their defense against PL.

On February 28th Atlas. sounded the horn in an attempt to save their station system from the clutches of The Legion.  One week earlier three-hundred Drakes from twenty alliances would have answered the call, but now the alienated Atlas. could muster no more than a pitiful thirty.  Trying to steady the sinking ship, Atlas. leadership pledged to “fight it out” and ordered their members to move back to Querious.  Unfortunately for Atlas., the pathetic display opened the floodgates of evacuation, with convoys of carriers and jump freighters running to empire.  Things went from bad to worse as a confirmed seven member-corporations held corporate-only meetings to vote on whether or not to leave Atlas. for greener pastures, with at least four corporations pledging to leave before the weekend and one leaving at the close of the meeting.

Rife with pride and arrogance, Atlas. had looked a gift horse in the mouth and managed to not only lose hold of a free region, but also managed to implode.  With Pandemic Legion proving that their stay in the area is more than just a flash in a pan, the only question that remains is who will fill the void left by this once-promising Coalition of the Willing.

    If the info about leaving corps is correct, then it is good for Atlas.. Now they know who came for 'free chees' (in future they could be renters, no more) and who came to stay 'in peace and in war' and to become real part of Atlas..
    Hope -A- leadership will call to arms.

    WOW this article is so wrong it humorous. However, The part about the fail PVP from Atlas is spot on.

    This notion that PL will hold space in 0.0 is crap. First off, PL is a PVP alliance thus has no stomach for the extensive care-bear crap that is needed to hold 0.0. I'm sure if they moved to a space-holding alliance, they would soon find themselves losing seasoned PVPers that would rather suck a **** then to care-bear it up in 0.0 and be tied down.

    2nd PL has little patients for 0.0 politics, and we all know what that means.

    However, I do see them doing the mob shakedown mentality. Going into Delve and Querious demand protection money and disappear for a month while they continue to take on merc contracts.

    you retards do realize that the numbers are accurate, right? it's sort of hard to not sound like a fan boy when you report something that hopelessly lopsided. Fanboy or not, -A- is a useless group of idiots led by a very delusional Russian, Atlas. will never be anything again, and PL is actually good at what they do. End of story.

      Soo…. according to you, the published batttlereports were faked?

      That sounds a bit desperate to me. Some "internet spaceships is SERIOUZ BUSINEZ" people with no humor would critizize the reporting, but the battlereports were never refuted by Atlas or anybody else.

      1. WTF?

        no, he is simply saying, that the "Four consecutive, highly-publicized and embarrassing defeats", were only so because rearadmiraldouchebag is the one that made them so.

        fights like that happen all the time, but when PL does it they get a write up.

          PL doenst "get" writeups. They DO writeups. Something to think about for other alliances maybe? Or you can just sit back and bash any article you dont like as "not newsworthy". Your choice.

    Just saw posted by RearAdmiralButts, and already remember what full of craps will that post be, just scrolled and he didnt disappointed me. Five – six lines of summary? Is it possible REARADMIRALBUTTS?

      Sorry man. EN24 dont work that way. Riverini can only do so much "editorial" stuff and the rest are contributions from you, the EVE player. The "EVE player" will ALWAYS be considered "biased" by at least a percentage of readers. Pieces are printed – sometimes with a disclaimer – or as in this case the writer is displayed with the PL alliance logo next to his name. I dunno about you, but to me thats a dead giveaway.

      Now there will allways be people that claim "biased" or "not newsworthy" to diss articles they dont like, usually because they dont like the organization responsible for the article. This is something EN24 can live with as it will produce content with decent regularity, and it creates "drama" and thus entertainment. Because this is entertainment.

      Its a "newssite" about a VIDEOGAME. Not fucking CNN.

    Sad that -A- is back to forgetting their allies style… though it's over after alliance was reborn. On the other hand, Atlas didn't do anything, they jumpoed on the wagon in last days as we were killing rest of Inits that were running away.

    However, most hillarious is that this site's karma still works! :D didn't you notice that AtlasDOT leader just been interviewed by EN24? and oops, alliance failcascades. reminds of something? it should :DDD
