LNA To Leave Faction Warfare?

Late Night Alliance [LNA] is one of the older Minmatar alliances in the Amarr-Minmatar warzone. A bedrock of the Minmatar defense of Huola, LNA is a storied institution and in many ways. Notably, LNA represents the “Huola Coalition” – the alliances and corporations within the Tribal Liberation Force that call Huola their home. However, a recent post by Susan Black implied that LNA would be dropping Faction Warfare for a new frontier, which was coupled with Ice Fire Warriors [IFW] dropping LNA entirely. FactionWarfare.com reached out to former LNA diplomat Gritz1 for the following statement:

“IFW is leaving FW, and most likely all of LNA. We will be joining a new pirate alliance and be yarr’ing around the space lanes.

FW has generally become stagnant and generally just very repetitive. We have a lot of high SP toons that want to fly something larger than a destroyer now and then, and we all just generally want a change in scenery. We will be consolidating members from other corps from LNA into Ice Fire Warriors and move forward with joining a few other corps in a new alliance.

I think everyone who has been in FW for some time sees how “bad” it has gotten. It was normal for battleships fleets to roam around back in the day and just brawl it out on the gates. Now its a race who can get the most destroyers into one small plex as fast as possible… I think we all look forward to new challenges and new scenery.


The impact of the departure raises questions about the future of the warzone. Now, the burden of the Minmatar’s offensive and defensive capabilities rest almost entirely on EU Timezone alliances and corporations as the Minmatar US Timezone – already largely dominated by Amarrian forces – has been greatly diminished. Nonetheless, the departure reverberates throughout both the Tribal Liberation Force and the 24th Imperial Crusade. Although the Minmatar have recently retaken Arnstur in the North, their combat capabilities in the South wane.
Is the Minmatar EU Timezone enough to retake the warzone?

Apologies for the late article. This was given to me a few weeks ago but due to real life circumstances was not published until today. Some of the things mentioned in here are out of date at the time of posting. -Subsparx

  1. will it even be able to hold onto a system w/o gal mil help?

  2. There have been several other defections from Huola and Minmatar FW as well in the last week. The Periphery (RIFT) alliance which includes corps Parallax Shift (RLAX) , Angry Mustellid (WEAZL), and a few others, have left FW. Scope Works (SWCW – pirate corp) who aids Minmatar FW is leaving the area. I think Minmatar FW is pretty dead now, with the exception of Iron Oxide (assuming they stay put). Amarr may have to start fighting Gallente soon as I don’t know how many folks will be left to bring fights.

  3. Literally bored the enemy out of the war. Good tactics.

  4. HA HA HA

  5. Bring back BIOHAZARD 🙁

  6. Minmatar will be better for this. LNA caused more drama and intramilitia strife than I can list here. And Minmatar militia gets killed more by LNA than they do by the Amarr. I say good riddance, and hopefully a better, more mature groups comes to fill vacuum.
