As you might already heard AAA has disbanded, Gypsy Band followed them on that sad road. Corps left to different alliances like PL, NC., RA etc.
People in Russian community were vocal about the death of Russian player base. However, on ashes of old, once feared and powerful entities a brand new alliance has born.
Alliance that gather those, who despite so many years of playing still has thirst of blood.
Let me introduce you Darkness of Despair [-DD-]. Brand new alliance that consists from Russian speaking players, corporations and pilots from AAA, Gypsy Band, Red.Overlord. New “RUS RUS” of EVE.
They are basing in Stain region, allied with Stain Empire, Coven and No Value. This alliance has many pilots popular in Russian community and some of them known to rest of eve, such as Old Hroft –one of EVE’s most remarkable bomber FC.
Their goals? I have no clue, but looking at battle report they have sent me this alliance is there to make life of HBC grunts harder.  


Battle report from bomber’s perspective:

Today we had a first fleet together as a new alliance. We managed to form around 40 bombers (AAA+some neutrals+DD), 130 Nagas from DD pilots, 50 Nagas from No value and 40 zealots from COVEN. Local was at approximately 700. Main goal for that fleet was to train in coordination of fleets.


This fleet was very successful for bomber pilots. A successful bomber run made Unclaimed. fleet history. Unfortunately, our Tier 3 fleet could not share the joy of precise bombing run since they were bubbled by their own interdictor and dying to HBC bombing run.

HBC managed to defend POS, which was the reason of said fight.

Battle Report from EVE-KILL.


Future will show us how these alliances will perform together. All I can do is wish thousands of good fights.

      heh so largest powerblock managed to compose a fleet that achieved 60% efficiency in one of battles vs Stain residents, where hbc usually loses terribly? Wow what a great job.

      I must say that : "init is shit" . I cannot sign with my name however, as I am not diplomat, because when TEST starts collapsing, WE might be the winning side to which you will wish to switch, as you usually do. And our diplos may find you useful for structure grinding and guarding shitty space, just like TEST did.

The moment IT got invaded by the CFC and had to go fight for their space -A- started spanking that ass. I personally have no love for -A- but I do believe in seeing things as they were . . . and for that campaign Init. couldn't hold their own.

            Yes AAA is a great ally ask Nulli, Red, or wait Solar. AAA did great by being active for them. With friends like AAA who needs enemies. INIT/IM had 100+ in that fight so maybe they feel they have a coalition to be worth active in.

            January 14, 2013 at 9:09 am
          2. U know who

            While -A- was terrible at diplomacy let's call it for what it was. Outside of Solar and some portions of ROL -A- had some shitty friends. Most of whom have used the "-A- is a terrible friend" propaganda to rationalize bailing out when things looked tough.

            Nulli was pissed that -A- wouldn't over commit against the combined mass of the CFC and HBC to save their space – when it was known that -A-'s strategy included, if needed, losing their own sov. Blue balling blobs they couldn't win against. So Nulli packs up and moves to FW to fill their wallets leaving -A- holding the bag.

            RA? They wouldn't exist if Herc hadn't let them retain sov after stabbing -A- in the back during the DRF war. -A- actually allowed them to keep space and regrow as an alliance – much to the dismay of many
            -A- members who would have rather seen RA's neck broken.

            The reality is – Nulli, Raiden RA, Pangu and others all bailed on -A- because of one overriding reason – they got better deals for their respective alliances elsewhere and it was no longer profitable to be a friend of -A-. It's biggie but stop trying to rationalize some type of moral high ground.

            "they got better deals for their respective alliances elsewhere and it was no longer profitable to be a friend of -A-. "

            It gest no simpler than that. -A- and -CVA- may be mortal enemies and the hate they have is mutual. But it's better to have honorable enemies than sellouts. People beat up -A- for not being nice. So whast the problem. Someone telling you NO YOU CANT or NO WE WON'T cause its stupid or not to our intrest. So you stomp your feet and pout like a child – make aggrement with other children – Curb Stomp -A- with the biggest blob ever seen in EVE. Then beat your chest like you did something.

By the time that happens, -a- will be a husk of a husk of a husk (yes 3 husks) of it's former self. If some dipshit ruskie wants to hang onto the "-a-" name, who cares? it will not be the -a- of the past that deserves respect, the -a- after that that was dangerous, or the latest -a- that ended up sliding down the wall of the HBC like a half warm turd. -a- is dead, and it was killed by 10,000 screaming retards and it's own diplomacy.

    It is true -A- hasn't disbanded. But 1900 with 50 active pilots its defiantly a shadow of its former self.
    -A- wasn't 1 alliance it was 2. English speaking and Russians with Maka the guy who managed to hold the 2 parts together. When he lost the 20 supers he was a defeated man. 99% of the Russians in -A- did nothing but hide or PVE. There was of course some good Russian pilots but not many.
    Will -A- ever become the power house it once was ? NO!
    Best they can achieve is become like Dark Side and forget about SOV.

      You are from Macabre Voltum, right? Why so much hate for your former alliance mates? You where with them for almost 2 years, and achieved some remarkable things, fought of RA+XIX+PL+WN, battled HBC+DRF for almost half a year against overwhelming odds and with remarkable success remaining among the top of the kill board for entire time. And it was unique among great 0.0 fot it's inclusiveness, people from all over the world were part of -A-, Easter Europe, Western Europe, America, all mixed in a way no other alliance could achieve.

      And now you are working fort that PL tool Vince grinding structures for Shadoo's new renting empire. And shit on your former comrades that fought side by side with you for over a year. You think NC. will ever achieve greatness of -A-. Not under Vince Draken, it certainly will not.

      And all you can say about that is how much Russian's sucked, and how horrible -A- was. You don’t even have curtsy of Mukk to talk respectfully of -A- and successor corps even of he is now in PL.

    U R all blaming HBC/CFC, I am not. Why? I was a pet in ROL space and have to pay billions for rented system and now I am living wherever I want in HBC space, doing whatever I want and pay nothing. FREEDOM is priceless. U R fighting for being ROL, c0ven or AAA rentiers again, good luck and pay to them as you like that.

      In EVE, everything is about reputation, your char, your corp, your alliance, your contacts.

      In EVE, everything has a price, you have traded your reputation for free run over anomalies and belt rats and a supposed sense of 'freedom'.

      Isk stockpiles can easily be rebuilt, you can be rich and poor a hundred times over and not worry about it, but your choice means you'll always be CFC/HBC's bitch. xD

        I dunno, maybe he doesn't care about any of that? Don't get me wrong, I would never be in a Badgerfuck Coalition alliance let alone a renting alliance, but if he's just after isk and never plans to actually fleet up why would he give two shits about space politics?

          Or maybe he hadn't actually thought about the longer lasting implications of being linked in any capacity to the blueblobs, and I've simply given him something to think about. 😉

    Without fleets up, especially in US tz, kills will be lower. That's the way it is. It's more accurate to look at the preceding month and so on to get a better idea of activity. This month is the beginning of -A- corps leaving so there will be differences.
