This announcement is both one of the hardest and saddest as well as the most exciting and important I could make to the diplomatic community. Those familiar with the diplomatic landscape of Star Conflict, and the relative skill level of each corporation, will understand the depth and impact of the decisions involved here.
So without further ado, I can announce that The WolfPack and NASA will merge into one corporation, starting immediately. We expect this process to be completed within a number of days.
This decision did not come lightly to any of the involved parties. It came after thorough evaluation of the current player base, the activity levels following recent patches (which has sapped the motivation of many core players within the community as a whole) as well as the potential impact that this decision has for our position among the current corporations within the community. Unknown to the community and even many of our own members, the officers of both corporations a few weeks ago signed an alliance treaty with a full set of terms describing a level of close cooperation and interaction between both corporations. Our intention was to ensure our members benefit from each other in terms of skill and activity. The merger is an extension of this idea and takes it a step further, providing more tangible benefits in the form of the same tag, a unified effort towards sectors, and shared communications in the form of corporation chat, Teamspeak (although we already shared TS access), etc.
Essentially we are strengthening our position of power together and ensuring that we go from being the best 2 corporations on the English side of the community to the undisputed number 1, period. Whilst this may sound like a bold claim, those familiar with the pilots in both The WolfPack and NASA should know that this is a statement that simply rings true.
So what’s happening now?
We’re going through the process of merging all our resources and transferring members of The WolfPack to NASA. I myself will take a position among the NASA officer team and primarily look out for the EU side of the corporation. The process of merging all our resources will take a few days and some smaller details possibly a bit longer. But soon, you’ll see familiar faces flying together with the same tag, unified by their desire for victory.
Does this signal the end for The WolfPack? No. For most of us, the pack is more than just a tag. It’s a play style, a feeling, a community. Whilst we may change tag, we will not shed our identity or ideology. We will share this with our brethren in NASA and together we will become an unstoppable force. Or, we will die trying.
So whilst this is a sad day, at the same time it is a day that will be remembered by us as the day we came together, to build something great.
