A few days ago, we hinted the existing rift between the russian alliances Shadow of xXDEATHXx and Solar Fleet. Long time allies, things seems to have soured strongly between the former BFFs according to a mail which is circulating the interwebs, it claims to be the “Official Shadow of xXDEATHXx” announcement:

Legion of xXDEATHXx / Solar Fleet feud get serious with “official” standings reset.

WARNING! ВНИМАНИЕ! SOLAR FLEET. EN/RU
From: Kupyc
Sent: 2011.12.07 21:52
To: Shadow of xXDEATHXx,

The Official Statement from Legion of xXDEATHXx of the 8th of Dec 2011.

There will be a standings reset between Legion of Death and Solar Fleet right after downtime. This tough decision came as a result of all diplomatic attempts, towards our old neighbour Solar Fleet, failed. Drone Regions are no longer the quiet corner of the universe – a war begins now. Not only the ingame war, but political and propaganda warfare: there are already articles on forums, there was a DDoS attack on our services for the past several hours, our Teamspeak, utilities and billing system.

Alliance Legion of Death is now mobilizing forces to fend off the aggressors and to protect what Drone Regions stood for since the begining.

In addition to direct notice that your welfare is being threatened alliance Legion of xXDEATHXx offers you to stand up for this well-being. Solar Fleet are renowned for the discipline and are a good tough opponent – the war with them will probably become an unforgettable experience. You are welcome to join alliance CTAs. Fleet format, ships and fits will be announced later. This isnt mondatory – join the fleet to experience what you probably wont experience anywhere else.

Regards, Karer.

[spoiler show=”Show Original Russian Text”]Это официальное заявление Legion of xXDEATHXx.

Сегодня, 8 декабря 2011 года, сразу после ДТ будут взаимно сброшены стендинги между альянсами SOLAR FLEET и Legion of xXDEATHXx. Это трудное решение стало ответом на действия руководства SOLAR FLEET после того как провалились дипломатические переговоры с альянсом бывшим нам хорошим соседом много лет. Дронреги перестали быть тихим уголком – начинается война. Война не только внутриигровая – на нас направлена и информационная атака: уже пишутся обличительные статьи, сервера альянса под DDoS-атакой уже несколько часов, есть проблемы с TeamSpeak, утилитами компенсаций и billing’а.

Альянс Legion of xXDEATHXx мобилизует силы для отражения агрессии и для защиты того чем были дронреги до сего дня.

Кроме непосредственно уведомления о том, что ваше благополучие оказалось под угрозой альянс Legion of xXDEATHXx предлагает вам встать на защиту этого благополучия и самим – SOLAR FLEET знаменит своей дисциплиной и является интересным и сильным противником – война с ним может стать незабываемым событием. Вы можете приходить на объявляемые альянсом КТА где вам будут только рады. Желаемые форматы, фиты, время и доступы будут объявлены позже. Это не обязаловка – приходите и получите то, чего, возможно, не сможете больше получить никогда.

уважением, Karer.[/spoiler]

So, there you have it, apparently total war is also on the menu for the Drone Regions.

    Gotta step it up EveNews24. You talk about "official" reset while something more interesting is apparently going on: http://evemaps.dotlan.net/system/GA58-7/kills

      they're not going to just report things based on killmails, they need people to send battle reports.. so why don't you step up instead?

        Back in the day Evenews would have at least a "watch this space for details as they come in" sorta article. Too much reposting other people's blogs instead these days.

        I just want to encourage a return to proper form!

        1. We'll try to get the battle report from this ASAP, thanks for the heads up, we needed battles to happen first to have the battle report, it seems like the crucible "shyness" is wearing out and ppl is actually committing to slug fests.

          What a difference from the past month!

          The blog syndication is an effort to bring different views while the war machine was turned off, now is when Eve News24 gets better than ever, as we'll have constant battle reports and opinion for our readers

            Seems like the fighting is starting off pretty good.

            Sorry wasn't there, so can't do a battle report, just noticed the large numbers of ship/pod kills.

      xDeath's principle income is from renters.

        Quite. No need to assume it's referring to any out-of-game bills in this case.

          utilities? And team speak is an out of game system.

          Perhaps they did a DDoS attack on their auto-pay for bots..

          1. Marcus_McTavish

            They most likely have an out-of-game system to keep up with expenses, because they have so many renters and pets etc.

        True, given the size of their renter alliance they probably have a lot of infrastructure for their alliance buy/sell programs. Hell I'd love to see their system just to browse. Probably one-stop shopping for an industrialist

      No way, AAA wins because they are in last place.

      1. DRP is fun

        Probably just another "standing reset" treat that no one actually believes. According to Evenews post DRF should be currently fighting PL, Goons, Raiden, NCdot, WN and RA……… Ye right my ass.

        1. Urziel99

          Doubtful. When WN "dissolved" the DRF after the defeat of NC they were on more cordial terms and more than likely went NiP (no sov or structures, just pew) for fights.

          Solar and the XxDeath however have had strained relations since the guy who jacked 900 Bill from Solar joined XxDeath. This one has been brewing for some time.

          you should take a look at their kb's because then you would actually see how many RA, WN, and their pets that PL and NC. kill.

        Reds (with lower case) refers to Red Alliance, as in DRF. Yes, -A- has russian corps. are a majority of -A- russian? no. Only major russian corps in -A- are Warhamsters, Russian Thunder Squad, VVS, and Rage and Terror…..ok, we have a lot, but not a majority. lol

        GOD it's like you guys try to fail at trolling.

          Funny thing, iirc Red Alliance was never part of DRF, and sided with goons against them back during the fall of the NC.

          It was one of those major russian alliance with Red in the name… if not RA, musta been Red Overlord. Russian aren't a monolithic bloc, they have as many internal hatreds as any other group.

          Nice fake-out-trolling
          Red could also refer to the main color of the soviet forces in the cold war, implying the Russian force, implying DRF.
          Which is like saying only Germans are in Evoke/Ewokes, only noobs in Test, and only shitposters in AAA.
          I mean not everyone in AAA sucks at posting, it could just be you :P

    Red Overlord is a cheap gimmick of Red Alliance. A few failcorps split apart from the original RA some 2 years back. The good old RA of once upon a time that was uberleetcheeze. Meh, today's RA isnt what it used to be anyway. Where the hell was i going with this anyway….
