During the weekend some of our friends had been keeping us up to date with the recent 4O1k movements. Namely the extremely hostile situation in which their relationship with Black Legion. has devolved into. Killmails like this one pretty much tells you how much does Black Legion. wishes to take some of the Retirement CLub’s assets.

Anyhow the word on the street today was:

401k is evac’ing 6NJ8-V under pressure from BL.’s steady pos reinforcements.
seems there running to H-PA, or atless using that as a relay sys.

Later today Zeroniss (4O1k Leader) made the announcement.

4O1K has made impressive progress in the past few months. We came to Venal in December. We were a tired alliance, coming out of a lot of inactivity and at the height of apathy. We settled in and with our dozen and two dozen man fleets, we began to establish ourselves, slowly but surely, to mould the alliance in the form that best suited our goals.
Alas, times are changing, and while we do owe much to Venal, The Retirement Club will be moving away from here as of this point.

In an effort to continue our campaign against the CFC, we will be joining our friends NCDOT and NULLI (and the rest of the N3) in Hophib and joining the front of the war. We will be repurposing our doctrines and getting rid of a fair few of them which are outdated and no longer working, and we will be taking on a few new ones.

We have a lot of work ahead of us as an alliance, in terms of hard work. The FC core will be repurposed and a lot of new blood is joining the FC ranks, along with our senior FCs. We will additionally have access to friendly fleets in the south too. This gives us a little more of a comfort zone to work on our self improvement issues while still having friends in times of need.
BL chose an opportune time to attack us while we were at a bit of an activity low, while they in turn were riding on a morale high. They chose to eschew our old friendship and basically make a mockery of it in favour of the income they would make seizing our R64s. Frankly this doesn’t bother me. We have never been ones to run from a fight, but the smart move for the time being is to stow away our anger and focus on redevelopment.
We have a lot of hard work ahead of us, and while a change of scenery will not solve any of it, it will help you get rid of this trenchfoot we have established, being in Venal for so long. So get ready and get moved.
This is a permanent move – we will not be coming back to Venal. And don’t worry about your ISK making, we’ve already sorted you something that’s better than Venal space :)

TIMEFRAME: ASAP – We start ops in new system from halfway next week.

Please coordinate with your corporation leadership on anything you need to move this forward. We’ll be doing regular move fleets and getting everyone settled in. And then it’s time to continue shooting those pesky Goonies!

Whether 4O1k left Venal out of Black Legion. pressure or the promise of greener pastures in Delve its up for you to decide. Needless to say, the next Delve War seems to be taking shape at an interesting pace.

            The dead titan died to self (coalition)-imposed tidi. If a mass zomg ping goes out – a staging system is going to tidi, giving the kill fleet all the time in the world. Well played on the kill fleet’s part and a security vulnerability exploited.

            The titan that lived – exact opposite situation. tidi again, same system tidi’s but this time it gives IRL time and people outside that system time to sort cynos, sort fleets, batphone friends etc etc.

            Both situations were exactly what they were… credit where credit is due.

TEST will crumble (And dont start sending TEST cheerleaders out its too late we were lost before the 350B robbery.) Test will split along Pro and Anti Goon lines and Delve will be taken by N3.

    BL exposed 401k for what it is “leaderless” not enough competent fc’s and pilots who want to kill shit. Look foward to their progress down South. Please no more excuses, you have told us why 401k have moved on.

    Zeronissss is a loud donkey

    401k I hope they die a slow death , not the same alliance i joined 6 months ago.After a solid month of Moon Pos bashing. Alliance called for mandatory deployment to fight Goons in fountain and one of their brilliant fleet concepts was assault frigs. Moving Op consisted of members moving there own carriers and cyno alts. Nice propaganda thread about the moving op there would be moving fleets with titan bridges but in reality the titan pilots and

    F Cs were busy playing mine craft in alliance lobby on TS.

    Now there running from Black Legion with their tail between their legs 946 members 1914 members

    Poor recruitment has cost 401k it seems quantity is not always better than quality.
