I hereby claim all credit.

No, really, it was me.

Before New Eden took the shape of the game we know today, there was a beta test. In that beta, I was the President of Endless Corporation, Eve's first mega-corp. That corporation, a roleplay-heavy outfit with about 300 clueless members, was savaged by a small, compact group of professional pilots called TAOSP - who would later go on to become Evolution, and form the heart of BoB. Once the game broke, they quickly became a powerhouse, outside of even my reach and vengeance... for the time being.

I learned from that defeat. I learned the value of small, compact groups of professionals. I learned how stressful it is to build an empire, and how disappointing it is to watch it crumble. If I was to take on the empire of Molle, I would need an empire of my own - but without the stress of running one myself.

I soon happened upon a newborn community of goons, whose name is lost to the mists of memory, and promptly attempted to enslave them through subterfuge and devilry. I knew theirs was a community of immense size, the ideal army to cast against Fortress Delve. That first goon community (harmless miners in frigates) and a second soon after (stronger, with merc backup) fell to my nefarious predations and griefery. I knew I had to **** them off enough to come back in force, in the numbers the SA goons were notorious for.

The goons will call me names for uttering such blasphemy, no doubt - but those among them who recall those earliest of days will find it difficult to deny that it was I! The cunning Istvaan Shogaatsu, who was the architect of their destiny! I, who impressed upon them the value of asymmetric warfare, terrorism and espionage! For those earliest goons quickly came back in force, growing into an alliance of suicidal madmen, immune to the predations of Eve's worst griefers and ready to return the favor to the cruel universe that so coldly greeted them before.

Now, I had my unstoppable force with which to knock over the immovable object of my hatred. Now, the trick was getting them to meet. To this end, I employed a tiny alliance of alcoholics which my compatriots forged into an effective regional fighting force. Theirs was the lot of the powderkeg. One simply doesn't ask two great forces to meet upon the field of battle - they must first be goaded there through a series of intricate moves and counter-moves. Thus, IAC went to war against ISS, friend to BoB - and seemingly drew the counter-reaction of BoB's janissaries, the MC. (This, in fact, was our doing.)

IAC called out for allies, conveniently finding them in alliances aligned with the now-mighty goons without involving them directly, and the besieged pets of the BoB influence sphere called out to their neighbours. One by one, much as in Europe at the kindling of World War 1, alliances were called to test, and mutual protection pacts enacted, as more pets from the BoB and Goon mass became drawn into the conflagration. Lotka, FIX, Veto on the BoB side; Reds, AAA and the Frenchies on the other! As the pets on both sides cried out to their masters for relief, the two superpowers finally collided.

Today, for the second time, the Fortress burns. The first time, it was laid low by cunning - the second, by righteous fire. My vengeance and masterpiece is complete, along with a number of contractual obligations.

To all those clients who paid me uncounted billions of ISK to destroy BoB/IT over the years: mission accomplished.

Well, you'll either find someone else to shoot, or wither like IAC once we were finished with them.

I hope the goons keep playing. It's easy to hate them upon first encounter, but there are some great minds among you.

Another pivotal alliance goes down in annals of history for it's many accomplishments, then its annihilation.

I wonder who will be next.

He was obsessed with revenge against anyone who screwed with him, Molle was just the biggest target.

If you want proof, ask your alliance spymaster. If he can't show you what I'm talking about, I've overestimated him.

And many people claimed it righteously.
A war with many battlefields , every one of them made a change. Every participant played his part and may take a piece of cake during the after show partey. An outcome like this isn't as easy to understand as an American horror movie where the director mention the killers name 10 times and show 10 retrospects.

This has evolved over a good part of a decade, no one was able to foresee the exact outcome of events, how it will happen or when, we were only able to guide the parties in the right directions and maybe whisper a misleading word to an arrogant ear, that was all that was necessary, -that is all that we do.

We hold the secrets of every major event in eve history. We don't want you to believe us, we much more enjoy your mistrusts, as we know the truth.

Always nice to see events set in motion and developed over the years conclude in success..

Manipulating coalition level inter-alliance politics was always the primary reason for the IAC experiment, free motherships was just a delicious bonus.

No one cares about the GH-SC. People have way outdone the scams that you have done and nowadays they are considered mediocre. Sure you were among the first few people to do that but since then there have been scams which blow yours way out of the water. Thats right keep pretending like you are actually important!

We are not important. Most of my corp is inactive. I know there have been far bigger scams than mine. You aren't telling me anything new.

All I did was tell you a story. You don't even have to believe it.
