Tabula Rasa is getting ready to shut down it's servers and it looks like they are going to go out with a bang.

We request that all military personnel begin fortifying defenses at every AFS base in preparation for a massive Bane assault. If enemy troop movements are as large as we fear, and the Neph are truly prepared to lead all out war against us, this may be our last stand. Penumbra has been informed of the situation and is standing by on the use of their last resort weapon. We can not afford to be complacent or uncertain, but if it is truly our destiny to be destroyed, we are taking them all with us.
Good luck and godspeed
AFS High Command
I admire them for using this as a the basis for a huge all encompassing final battle rather than just shutting the game down quietly. It sounds like the "last resort weapon" is going to be what shuts down the game for good.

I wish all of the people that enjoyed this game good luck in their final battle. Give them hell!
