Mergers and splits have always been commonplace within the warez scene; discontent members leaving one group to form another or release groups combining forces under a new name.
With the exponential increase of new release groups forming in 1998, keeping track of mergers/splits became a difficult job. As part of our ongoing archiving, we've been attempting to create an accurate document of these events in the form of a timeline.
This is still very much a work-in-progress and many minor groups are still missing, but think of this as a preview of the full document. Click the image above to see the full-size timeline.
