Previous Alliance LeadersEdit
When Fly first started, there would be three leaders known as "The Cabal". As of 1 January 2009, there will be 1 overall leader, the "Sovereign", and their deputy leader, the "Councilor".
1st Cabal. Killer100, MoK
This was the original Cabal consisting of the former leaders from Deck of Cards and State of Unified Nations respectively. It originally consisted of only two Cabal to be fair to both alliances were the third Cabal would be elected during the first election.
2nd Cabal. Imo, HP, MoK, Jacko
Despite not being the official time for a Cabal election it quickly became apparent that there was a need for one after Killer100 resigned leaving MoK as the only current Cabal. The elections that took place were used to not only fill Killer's empty seat but the third Cabal position as well. The two people elected were Imo, and HP. Soon after however MoK resigned from Cabal as well and Jacko was elected to fill the seat until the next official election. Another interesting note on the 2nd Cabal was that it was the first Cabal to see war for Fly, two separate wars in occurred during the time of the first election to the beginning of the 3rd Cabal. These wars were Desert Swarm and the War of the Coalition. (See History)
3rd Cabal. HP, Jacko, Anenu
The beginning of the 3rd Cabal was itself a noteworthy event as it was the first time in Fly's history that a tie occurred between two separate nominations which lead to the first tie breaking elections. The two nominees who tied for the 3rd Cabal Spot were Anenu and IBFTD and in the end Anenu emerged victorious.
Though the history of Fly was slight under a year long it went through much. At its max it had over 100 members and 2 million NS and was ranked within the top 75 alliances. Politically Fly sitgned few treaties but found itself a home within C&G and militarily Fly fought in 2 global war.
