The Blue Turtle Alliance (BTA) has reformed and is once again a living alliance.
The Blue Turtle Alliance was founded by two former NAAC Members: Master-Debater and Voronov, who left the NAAC to create the Blue Turtle Alliance. The BTA grew at an average pace mostly due to Master-Debater's recruitment efforts and other promotional things. Soon enough the BTA Picked up and formed Diplomatic relations with a Number of alliances, notably the NAAC, NoR & NADC. The BTA is very open with its politics and is always willing to listen to new treaties.
Treaty with R&REdit
In the last few weeks the BTA has expanded itself onto a new form of chatting. IRC. The instant that the BTA went online in IRC the room began to freeze because of its complete lack of visitors. The BTAs room is #BTA on coldfront.
The Leaving of Voronov. Months back, co-founder Voronov came to the BTA with the idea of joining GUARD. It was met with very little fanfair and was shortly there after turned down. After that Voronov left the BTA so that he could fight alongside the NADC.
Great War 2Edit
As the cyberverse teetered on the brink of war for many weeks the BTA sat back and watched from the wings while thinking of there next move. Watching conflict after conflict build up and then blow over the BTA had assumed that there was to be no war until they learned of a small conflict that started involving Fark.
Watching as GOONS started to attack Fark, the BTA saw no reason to go to war until they were contacted by allies and enemies the same asking for assistance as they were all going to war the following night.
Deciding that the BTA should honor its treaties, it went to war to defend itself and its allies from its enemies. On Jan 10, 2007 11:46 PM the BTA officially went to war
After a few days of war BTA members were prospering while others were in tatters. On Jan 15, 2007 12:25 AM the Blue Turtle Alliance officially withdrew.
Many trials followed the war as BTA members began leaving in flocks. In total 27 BTA members left in the days following the withdrawal, some wishing to continue fighting, some thinking the war was stupid and wanting out, and still others wanting to create an alliance of their own.
As rebuilding began the BTA found itself in a crises with a complete lack of leadership in most areas and a lack of income. Rebuilding from the ground up many BTA nations have returned to there previous strength and are prospering with greater numbers than before.
While the war was a sacrifice to many BTA members a resolute BTA has rebuilt itself from the ground up re doing its charter, military, and application process.
On 3 March 2007, the BTA signed a treaty known as "The Sphere Web" with fellow alliances MRA, R&R, and GoG (later, NCAAbbs and MCB also join). This treaty formalized the relationship between these alliances, agreeing to non-aggression and mutual defense (should the need arise).
Great War 3Edit
A sneak attack on GATO threw the world into war. BTA was allied closely with GATO and had prepared to go to war. The alliances in Sphere were looking for a way to go to war. With the BTA PIAT with GATO a way was found. Every alliance in the Sphere declared war on the CIS and decimated it. With the war drawing on some alliances in Sphere wanted to find peace and rebuild. When the NoR began to attack Sphere alliances began to take a beating. Without warning all Sphere alliances except for the BTA surrendered. The Surrendering alliances posted a cookie cutter surrender blaming the BTA for the entire war. Knowing that the alliance would never survive the Emperor at the time, Master-Debater, posted a final order and plan for BTA to follow. The final order and plan was to stage a coup. By doing this BTA would have a way to surrender. Master-Debater then spent months in peace mode on PZI lists from most major WUT alliances. The plan was initiated and worked perfectly. Years went by before anyone outside of the upper level of government learned of this plan. The BTA itself went on to surrender and then disband due to surrender terms.
Two years since the original BTA disbanded Master-Debater began to work to re-form the BTA. On June 27, 2009 Master-Debater reformed the BTA. Immediately alliances from around the world weighed in on the reformation. Most alliances welcomed the BTA back into existence but others such as MHA and TAB did not welcome them with open arms. Led by two former BTA members, Sorum and Crushtania, The rhetoric by the MHA reached a high point when Sorum went on the offensive and posted his interpretation of the history. Master-Debater immediately warned Sorum to retract his post and when shown a more factual version of events, he issued an apology and retracted his statements.
Currently the BTA is focused on the peaceful growth of its members. With leadership positions filling up the BTA has a solid group of members and leaders paving the way for the next chapter in BTA history.
