The war in US, between the invading EU group Space Invaders, and the native USS Alliance and others, is continuing with destructive intensity.
Heavy attacks have been made by both sides against each other, with battles in Sparrow, and lethal raids over control of the valuable mining pits.

The constant fighting has increased the danger in the conflict areas, and added fuel to the existing trend of increasing difficulty faced by regular miners due to attacks and piracy in these areas.
Economically, the war has consumed huge amounts of input from both sides. USS are known to have lost significant amounts of RCs in battles. Space Invaders’ urgent need for rapid construction and supply on the new server demands huge quantities of metal and explosives. Traders in US have experienced a noticeable increase in demand due to the requirements of both teams.
Reports just in of a huge invasion of US by EU forces!
Space Invaders, a group of the leading EU players, have launched a full invasion of US. Openly declaring war on main US factions: USS, HIT and Reapers.
Heavy battle has commenced already, with reports that the heavily armed HIT Pirates ship has been one of the first casualties. USS have begun mobilising in full, with our reporter breaking the inside story that an official 25 RC bounty is been placed against Space Invaders by USS.
How this will affect global politics in the US server is not yet known. Presumably there will be pressure on the S0TO to either rally against or treaty with the invaders. The primary advice Drednews gives to all ships is to be very careful of the increased current danger in combat zones.
In a bid to amass the greatest score, the USS Almighty has been ravaging ships in US.
The USS Almighty has destroyed many ships through direct combat in the danger zones of US. Several ships have been heard complaining of this action.
The USS Almighty themselves have admitted this activity and directly revealed their motivation of achieving a record score. In a move that is likely to increase anger instead of calming it, the USS Almighty did not apologise for these actions, but instead offered financial compensation to captains of destroyed ships, while at the same time stating their aggression will continue. drunken crew specifically have been heard telling of the destruction of their own ship by USS Almighty, and vowed revenge.
