This report presents the latest data on expansion and withdrawal among the galaxy's minor factions.
Here are the latest factions to have expanded into new systems:
Chicoana Silver Travel Corp.
HIP 96289 Blue Major Inc
110 Herculis Purple Natural PLC
Annarr Dynamic Corp.
Revolutionary Eluskapu Partnership
People's Tutumu Confederacy
Kwarandji Comms Industries
Expansions occur when a minor faction reaches a sufficient level of influence and there is a populated system within striking distance. Expansion is costly, so when a faction expands, the wealth and development level of the system it controls are temporarily reduced.
Here are the latest factions in withdrawal:
Democrats of BD-02 4304
HR 8170 Brotherhood
Bodb Dearg Order
Yenistani Guardians of Tradition
Brotherhood of Caerete
Velnians Gold Transport Holdings
Marquis du Ugrivaci
Chimasates Blue United Org
Factions are considered to be in withdrawal if their level of influence within a system drops below a certain level. If the faction's influence remains low for a total of five days, the faction must leave the system entirely. If the faction manages to increase its level of influence, it remains in the system.
