The last stand of the ACC has begun, and groups from all over Malton have joined in for our final send off. Currently the fort and all buildings inside are repaired and barricaded according to the barricade plans. Survivor groups involved include the CDF, MFD, the Fortress, DHPD, and Malton Rangers. The booze has been broken out of storage, and it's an open bar folks, head this way for a party of epic proportions. clanc43 (talk) 19:06 19 August 2015
Despite valiant efforts by survivors the fort is once more in zombie hands. Survivors led by CDF reclaimed the interior buildings and held them for a number of days, but were unable to wrest control of the gatehouse from the zombies.--Futuyama (talk) 13:06, 28 March 2015 (UTC)
Survivor efforts to reclaim the fort continue, with priority being given to capturing the gatehouse. Zombie numbers are increasing and the infirmary and storehouse are currently being contested. Survivors are organising their reclamation efforts on reddit. --Futuyama (talk) 13:00, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
Creedy_Defense_Force have in the past few days begun efforts to reclaim Fort Creedy. A number of key fort buildings including the infirmary and armoury are currently held by the CDF and their supporters, although the gatehouse remains in zombie hands. --Futuyama (talk) 00:10, 25 March 2015 (UTC)
The siege of Creedy started on December 23rd, 2007, when PKers and feral zombies arrived at the fortress. Several PK'er groups (like the Philosophe Knights, Flowers of Disease and Red Rum had united under the banner of the Silent Night Slaughter, and together they were able to kill 126 survivors in the Fort's gatehouse in a single night.
The zombie hordes had also united and groups like the Ridleybank Resistance Front, LUE and the Eastonwood Ferals all arrived with the Second Big Bash, which raised the number of zombies outside the Fort's gates to 300-400.
When they breached the gatehouse, they killed the 105 survivors who were left there, and proceeded to kill the nearly 400 survivors left in the rest of the Fort. Among the defenders were members of the Creedy Defense Force, Alliance of Fort Creedy, Black Brigade and the Army Control Corps. The last of them fell on January 2nd, 2008.
In retrospect, the fall of Creedy can be attributed to a lack of coordination and communication among the survivors, who weren't able to withstand the well-coordinated strikes of the SNS or the persistent masses of the Second Big Bash.
The Second Ruining of Creedy went quite in a similar fashion to the first one, in that the Fort fell to a combination of zombie hordes and PK'er activity and that there was a significant lack of coordination among the survivor population. The siege began on July 4th, 2009, and only five days later, on July 9th, the last survivor had been killed and the last part of the Fort had been ruined.
To this day, reports of the event are quite unclear and incomplete.
A month after the Second Ruining of Fort Creedy, the Creedystock Music and Art Fair was organized on the Exercise Yard inside the Fort Walls. The festival celebrated the counterculture of the late 1960s – early 1970s and the "hippie era". During the event, several people took the opportunity to protest against the military presence in Malton.
In more recent years, particularly following the introduction of zombie interference and beachhead tactics, Fort Creedy, as with other major structures in the game, has had a more difficult time standing up to zombie assaults, and regularly goes through a cycle of ruin and repair. Generally, no more than a few dozen survivors are in the Fort at any given time, making their job of defending the gatehouse and the fort as a whole more perilous than it was in times past, but due to the Fort's historical status and the close proximity of Giddings Mall for staging and reinforcement, the Fort has remained a popular location for survivors, so it is frequently reclaimed in short order.
