The Global Defense Initiative was founded on December 5th, 2018 by Nreic, leader of Palaesia. The initial goal was to create a haven for new players to thrive and enjoy playing the game. In the beginning, it succeded. As time went on, conflict and rogue members caused the alliance to collapse. The collapse occurred between 04/01/2019 to 04/06/19.
In the beginning, the alliance consisted of Nreic and Meade. They began recruiting any new players they saw in the game, inflating their numbers. Within the first month, the alliance had already gathered over 20 players, larger than the biggest alliance in the game, though, much weaker. Notable members from that period are Nreic, Meade, SeanPRC, and Drusketh.
