Alliances can choose to abandon a Zone for a better one. Abandoning a Zone has no impact on the Takeover schedule, and you can abandon at any time.

Abandoning a Zone means that:
  • any Service you have activated in the Zone is immediately ended (normally active Services last until the next Takeover)
  • you will no longer be able to mine the nodes in any systems in the Zone
  • if you have relocated your station into a system in the Zone, you'll no longer be able to activate peace shields (as you no longer control the Zone).
