|The Blizzard Pact Part II|
The Blizzard Pact Part II is an Optional Defense Pact signed between Avalanche and Polaris on November 29, 2017. On January 16, 2018, two amendments were made to the treaty which included the strengthening of the terms of Article II, as well as the elimination of the previous Article IV titled "Time Period." The treaty became defunct on March 13, 2018 due to the disbandment of Avalanche.
