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:
HIP 73428 Exchange
HIP 9610 Jet Legal Systems
Wolf 217 Left Party
Official Palengue Liberty Party
Matia Empire League
Revolutionary Abazates Democrats
HIP 65921 Silver Bridge Systems
Noblemen of Vanayeb Hua
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:
Ross 210 Pro-Alliance Party
LHS 3505 Crimson Mafia
HIP 13269 Silver Drug Empire
HIP 28987 Empire Pact
Annarr Dynamic Corp.
Firdaus Transport Company
LTT 700 Jet Major Holdings
LHS 3516 Fortune Company
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.
