The Honey Badger Coalition held a State of the Alliance to discuss upcoming challenges, a summary of the Delve offensive and upcoming policies, including a rental program. Inevitably, many are confused by a coalition meeting being labeled "State of the Alliance." Speakers included Montolio, the TEST CEO; Shadoo of Pandemic Legion fame and Paul Knuth for the Q&A session that followed.
Topics of discussion included:
- Welcoming Raiden and The Initiative into the coalition.
- TEST's financial situation.
- Montolio's intent to avoid putting TEST at the center of the coalition's leadership.
- Declining SoCo numbers in recent fights.
- The Foxcat fleet doctrine and its usefulness against Tengu fleets.
- The HBC's intent to be at the forefront of adapting to the upcoming ship changes in the winter.
- Praising Wrik Hoover for routinely releasing SoCo comms recordings in short order.
- The lifting of restrictions on supercapital sales outside of the HBC.
- A rental policy that allows renters to live in TEST's Fountain space rather than paying to hold specific systems.
