Avalanche was formed in March 2008 when eight real life friends came together to form an alliance. These eight nations survived unaided until the 21st, when they became a protectorate of the Greenland Republic. Avalanche has grown steadily since then.
- Opening Announcement by Mattea.
The Great Lord was the Chief Executive of Avalanche until May 23, 2009. Executive power was then expanded and transferred to the Triumvirate under the new charter.

Mattea, Gears of War & Bellisus - May 23 - July 26
War of the CoalitionEdit
August 13, 2008, Greenland Republic declared war on Valhalla and GGA for attacking their protectorate, Hyperion two days earlier. Avalanche was instructed by Bob, then leader of Greenland Republic, to suspend their protectorate treaty. Over the course of the war, Avalanche stayed neutral, as it held no treaties to either side following the suspension of the protectorate.
After war's end, Avalanche resumed their protectorate treaty with Greenland Republic. As soon as Greenland Republic's surrender terms expired, the protectorate was upgraded to an MDoAP.
Discussion began for a new charter in private among senior government officials in March 2008. Many felt the executive had too little power. To this end a new charter was drafted, giving more authority to the executive but splitting power into a triumvirate. The new charter was put to a referendum, and passed 24-10 (with nearly 30 abstaining) on April 27. The first triumvirs and new government officials are set to take office on May 24.
On the 21st of April, 2009, Avalanche joined many other alliances in declaring war on the New Pacific Order, following the optional defense clause in their MDoAP with the Greenland Republic. On April 22, The Phoenix Federation declared war on Avalanche. This made Avalanche nations the first hit by the Coward Coalition. Avalanche is currently (as of May 19) in a state of war with both alliances.
- Announcement DoW on NPO
The top 10 nations of Avalanche rode the first wave with Greenland Republic, and although they got hurt there was a remarkable sense of pride within the alliance.
On July 19, 2009, the [New Pacific Order] surrendered to the collective forces of [Karma]. While the Phoenix Federation and Avalon remained in active conflicts with Karma alliances until August 4. Tragically, due to the alliance disbanding, the victory was never to be celebrated. A merger was arranged between Avalanche and the Greenland Republic whose friendship was unwavering towards Avalanche from day one.
The End of AvalancheEdit
The end of Avalanche was officially announced on July 26, 2009 when the newly elected government with a new charter simply did not deliver. The longest serving leader and most active member of the alliance (SirDog) had left Avalanche after some internal politics which severely deflated his motivation to remain with Avalanche. The, then, Lord of External Affairs, Paulpig made the final announcement on the OWF stating the official disbandment of Avalanche
Avalanche reformed 1 January 2010.
