Tribal Band is certainly the currently sinking ship of New Eden, all it takes just take a look at it’s dotlan numbers to notice things aren’t going well for them:

Today a leak arrived to my email, an alliance update allegedly posted by Lezari, CEO of Dromedaworks Inc, I ORC’ed the screenshot and outlined the best bits:

Hello ladies and gents,
Yesterday i held a small meeting where the future was discussed, since people only got 2 hours notice i decided to write up a short summary. Triget made it clear during an alliance officer discussion that he was kinda burned out and wanted to go back to a corp officer. I decided at that time to step up and go forward with the plans that leadership has made. So the following is gonna happen:

We will be moving to the next phase of our development. The old TRIBE way is the way of the coalition, we were pretty good as a coalition member but we failed to develop ourselves as a PVP alliance. This has led to other entities perceiving us as “useless carebears”. This has to change, very soon we will start over in a new alliance with a new name, we will be focusing a lot more on PVP and growth of our memberbase. The alliance itself will have fewer corporations then TRIBE had in its prime, 60ish corps is to much to keep track of so ideally i want this new alliance to have 20 large corporations that make up the bulk of our force. Smaller corporations will still be welcome but i do recommend exploring the option to merge and turning into something bigger, do note however that i will NEVER force corporations to merge

The new alliance will not take all the corporations currently in TRIBE, some of them are not active and some are not interested in pup. Every corporation that wants to move over will have to apply to the new alliance (except the founding corporations, which are already active and ready to kill shit), the main reason is that our old recruitment standards for corporations were horrible and we are turning into something better. The applications will be reviewed by CEO’s of the founding corporations. Hopefully this will increase the quality of the application process and the applying corporations.

Our Curse deployment has been a failure! Only a few people actually deployed and killed shit, while that is disappointing i do understand corporations taking a little break while waiting for information. Im gonna pull the plug on the curse deployment; with our current numbers its not feasible to remain there. Where are we going now? Good question, i have no idea yet, im gonna talk to a lot of people with experience in different aspects of the game to figure out what our best option is, it could be lowsec pirating, faction warfare, merc stuff. ALL options are open to us. Where we move is vital, but its also important that we take a look at the alliance finances, because at this time i cant afford to have SRP in place. When we get settled in a new home and we have found some revenue sources i will happily start it up again, but getting the income is gonna be very important.

That brings me to the Services, the server has been ordered and there is someone who is currently working on a userfriendlier version of an authentication system. That does mean we will have forums / TO /Jabber. I do urge people with programming experience or experience with frameworks to step forward so that we can have a Proper IT team instead of 1 person doing everything. The sooner we build this auth system, the sooner we can have our services up and running.

The last but very important point is communication, this has been lacking for the last couple of months and i do apologize for that. In this new alliance i will have a communication officer that hounds me regularly to place updates on whats going on, besides that we will schedule regular meetings if the need arises.. Hopefully that way we can keep everyone happy and up to date.

I sincerely hope that i have given you some useful info, no details have been hammered out so far, but trust me im working on it. We were TRIBE, and inc proud to have flown with all of you. TRIBE is over but it shall not be forgotten, its the memories and the experiences that will stick with us. Now follow us into this new alliance and help start a new chapter for this great community!!

We’ll keep updating as more information arrives.

    The level of literacy found at EN24 is just shocking.

    I think it’s a shame in many ways. say what you like about them. Tribe were the only one of TEST’s friends that stood and fought with them, when everyone else legged it.
    I hope they come back leaner and meaner.

      agreed, and don’t know Lezari, but it sounds like he’s attempting to make the hard decisions and create a path forward while keeping everyone apprised of what’s going on. +1 for the effort & good luck to tribe.

    What do you really expect from a sov-holding – no, region-holding – alliance that’s terrorized and ruled over by pizza that has only a few dozen active players.

      I wasn’t in tribe long, but while I was it was more dangerous to run anomalies than an anti-pizza strat op.

      You are completely clueless.. Triget logged in and played almost daily. He joined almost all the fleets and was just about always on and available to his alliance

    My poor baby. Lost amongst the monumental difference between alliances and coalitions. We relied on TEST way too much, for support, for sure. Unfortunately for us, they were unable to help us when it came down to a fight against the entire southern Russian block.

    Surprise, surprise, TRIBE could not survive in PB and PS without a JF gateway to HS, and, with the Russians standing between TRIBE and a possible new home in Catch, the outcome was obvious to all.

    However, as much as people would like to say how shit we were, we did bring a good fight to 6VDT (bringing 400+ pilots) and our final fight for YHN, was respected by all involved.

    All good things come to an end…. o7 TRIBE

        Having a fleet hugging an avatar for 3 hours, cause the server literally will not let anyone else into the system… how much more fight could we bring?

    Tribe only grew as when they had a guy recruiting a shit ton of corps for them and then they pushed him out cause he spegred.. .. Triget is the #1 reason why tribe failed. Grim was right when he wanted to take over in January of this year as at the time most of the alliance did not have faith in Triget’s leadership

    So Tribe had the option to join 2 maybe 3 other coalitions, insted they choose to pay 25 bill out of 50 bill total for Catch off of Init, didnt end up with a single system. When -A- tried to approach Tribe to sort something out they demanded -A- moved away from Catch OR give Impass to them. Now they disband, what did we learn kiddies? Russians are crazy.

    So long and thanks for all the fish! Triget failed in many respects and Lezari is gonna fail in all + more! Tribe is dead now…. get over it, learn to eve and come back when your ready! Tribe needed corps to step up and participate instead of just living with the name for “safety”!
