Specifically, they wanted to fight groups MUCH weaker than themselves, turkey slap them and then declare victory against the imperialist dogs. #tweefleet
KD was pretty big in Caldari roleplay at the time but had to sue for peace. #tweetfleet
Star Fraction brutally smashed them as well. I did not hear of Cyrene again after that, in any fashion. #tweetfleet

Now you may have notice they only did three of the four empires. There is indeed a story behind that, too. #tweetfleet
But Electus Matari was like the PIE of Minmatar. Strong industrial base, veteran roleplayers and an extremely popular, well-liked roleplay figure in its leadership. And many allies. #tweetfleet
