RAZOR Alliance (Player alliance)
History of Razor
Founded in 2005. Razor started off by living in 5ZXX-K in Pure Blind. Politically aligned with then powerhouses G and IRON we worked on keeping Pure Blind clean from pirates and any NBSI types.
Shortly after (Six Months) forming the alliance the regions of Branch, Venal, Tenal and Tribute were in a quite bloody war since FE and Euphoria Released had collapsed against ATUK led enemies. Seizing the opportunity RZR helped G take over BKG and subsequently Branch. After that together with Morsus Mihi who had been approached down in Geminate we took over Tenal while helping Morsus Mihi take Tribute. That war got us into probably one of the longest standing 0.0 brotherhoods.
RZR and RAWR engaged in countless wars together always relying on each other for success and ultimately always prevailing. Many alliances joined what was to become known as the 'Northern Coalition' which sat astride a large swathes of the north of the Eve universe for several years, repelling or retaking all invaders.
That coalition and it's grip on the north came to an abrupt end in 2011. The DRF steamrolled much of the north with a show of super capital force never seen up until that time. The NC itself was imploding due to several failures on all levels and a decision was made to yield the territory to the opposing forces, fall back to low sec and regroup.
Razor itself lost a lot of it's 'chaffe' and decided to focus on PvP, operating from several low sec staging areas slowly but surely morale picked up, the member base grew and eventually several of the old RAWR corps came on board and a new direction chosen.
A new home in Pure Blind was offered by GSF(O-BY0Y), which was gratefully accepted. Shortly after Razor deployed to Delve alongside our now brother in arms GSF to help TEST secure their territory and aid in the (in)famous Delve freeport campaign.
Becoming full members of the CFC Razor then helped retake most of the north and were rewarded with reclaiming our ancestral home of Tenal. Following on from that several large campaigns have been fought including more recently Fountain and Delve yet again!
RZR was founded by Cutting Edge Inc. (CEI) and Bladerunners (BLADE). The alliance name Razor is supposed to be a reference to the words Cutting and Blade in the founding corps names.
Within a week of its founding. Octavian Vanguard joined from Syndicate. At the time of expansion into Tenal a few more corps were taken onboard. Notably now long standing members Roving Guns (RG), Mythos (MYTH) and Thundercats (HOO).
When D2 (successor of G) suffered at the hands of the MC Northern invasion post Delve Mk1. Decadence came onboard.
A few corps have come and gone but probably the most notable fairly recent additions to the roster have been the ex RAWR corps of TGRAD, hirr (4s also joined for a while but seemed to prefer the gut wrenching antics of DBRB's fleets and so left to join GSF :p) and lastly Str8ngeBrew.
RZR is still doggedly trying to improve it's fighting prowess. Winston Churchill said 'Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts'... and with that in mind Razor continually deploys without the protection of our CFC allies, taking our successes and failures in good stead with the sole goal of improving and once again be a well respected fighting alliance in the Eve Universe.
