Oh someone did take up the call....would be good to back up the info with references/links where possible, that way the subjectivity is minimal and references are non-personal, etc..

29/03/2010 01:26 GMT+1 -United Aegean Empire Reform and War Declaration

Ahh got it a bit wrong there Milo. Jan 25th is the day Clan Harmada formed. Not Molon Labe. For the merger, Serenity moved over into Clan Harmada as our forums were better. Then we changed the alliance name. Was easier this way.

So the changes needed are:

Molon Labe formed from the merger on March 3rd, 2010 and Jan 25th is Clan Harmada's formation date.

I was going to say :p


Thanks for the corrections guys. As for the alliance formation dates, I'm going off the date that the first member joined on Grepostats. Without your input, I may be completely wrong about original names, etc.


I'm about 1/5 done with alliance formation dates. I think I'll go ahead and look through another 200-400 pages of Grepostats and see if I can find any more that are important.

HMA was created on 6/16/10 at 4:25 PM and by the gods how we have grown :)


Alright, I'm pretty sure I have every important alliance. If anybody has any information about wars and mergers, I'd very much appreciate it.


I dont know if its worth it, but here is some info on the following....edit as you like, dont take it to heart - this is just info on history of beta

01-05-2010 - (Accoriding Dash Branaghan as Diplomat for Myrmidons), Wake of the Kraken decide to assist Myrmidons against the war with Xmortis.
Dash Branaghan said:
Dash Branaghan 01/05/2010 at 1:26 PM Fellow Myrmidons, Yet another ally in the fight against Xmortis has joined our call to arms - the brotherhood of Wake of the Kraken, an Ocean 67 alliance predominately (working into Oceans 57 and 76) have decided they have had enough of Xmortis' guff (I just wanted to use the word guff) and have banded together with us in a (temporary) full Alliance. Generals in those Oceans should contact Warmad21 to coordinate offensives, support, and generally get to know each other. They aren't a big alliance, but they are a good group of active people to be working with. So let's show them our support and work with them to continue our campaign to blot Xmortis off the face of Grepolis Beta.
15-05-2010 - The Argonauts was formed by Dash Branaghan and then renamed to Pros Theon a few days later which incorporated Puma and TheSpartanKing as the 'Tria' founders, it was formed mainly from Myrmidons O66 top players due to a dispute between Dash Branaghan (Myrmidons diplomat) and Siindbad (Myrmidons Founder) about his 'armchair leadership' from lack of assistance in the war with Xmortis. Dash Branaghan entered into lengthy negotiations with Xmortis during this transition phase, which unfortunatley failed to produce a result (NAP/Ally) and thus the war continued with Pros Theon as well. SeS also assist in the Nandil (of Pros Theon) removal mission.

18.08.2010 11:39 GMT+1 - Pros Theon look at alternative merger options

25-08-2010 12:46 PM GMT+1 - As the last founder of Pros Theon, TheSpartanKing announces the End for Pros Theon internally and suggests players join SeS.

12-09-2010 - Pros Theon officially ceases to exist, the remaing players splintered off into various other alliances

Qlander: Do you know when the Pros Theon / Myrmidons - Xmortis war officially began?

Gotham: What was Controlled Burn's old name?



A couple of small alliances were formed on the September date, Battle Hardened Spartans and Spartan Swords. Both alliances ended up merging to form Controlled Burn on the December date I gave you.




What is really funny about No Surrender is we were attempting to have them become Molon Labe Academy, but somewhere along the line they went Silent and then vanished....

to bad for them eh
