The group has gone through several leaders and phases of genre since 2012, and still runs today. Its most well-known leaders are walky3 (Sckaar), Zanziber, Alpharion (FranzSchalder), and Scrizeebe (ScriptIntelligence).
Alpha Authority was created in 2012 to rebel against Red Delta's new leader, PartyTimeCc after the group was accidentally transferred. The rebellion became known as The Red War, and when it was over Alpha Authority had lost at a score of ten to zero.
In early 2013, AA was transferred from walky3 to his younger brother, Zanziber. Zanziber uploaded the first uniforms and established the first group guides in the Roblox Forums, partly under his main and an alt known as AAMissionControl. A series of islands were created as bases to train on.
In 2014, the second set of Alpha Authority uniforms were uploaded. They were the camo uniforms, which had their own classes and colors and varied in price. Allies moved onto what were called squadrons, or units. Allies were made outside of Alpha Authoritys reign, and this was the start of Alpha Authority's Golden Age. Alpha Authority also went to war with 'The Killer Assassin and won.
Alpha Authority later went to war with TKA (The Killer Assassin's) and Assault Guard, defeating both of them.
The Roblox Assault Team, the largest group in Roblox, declared war on them. This became a massive war with both groups, rallying over 100 people to raid Sunshadow Falls and Celeste 2. During the war, exploits occurred at AA's fort that progressed to explicit images being uploaded into the game and Roblox Content Deleting both AA and RAT's forts and banning Zanziber. Frosteus, an officer of the clan, claimed the group before any other users could claim the clan for themselves. Later, a movement was started entitled, "#UnbanZan" to get Zanziber unterminated The movement was successful, as Zanziber's account was restored later that year.
In January of 2018, ScriptIntelligence gained the Alpha Authority group from Descripto, on behalf of Alpharion, who Descripto had been holding for. Alpha Authority was in need of being setup again. The description was changed, the the games were updated to their latest versions from Alpha Insurgency, the social communications were connected, and the ranks were recreated.
Sunshadow Falls is an active defense point in Alpha Authority, created as a mirrored fortification. It can be customized in-game to fit the wants of the raiding team, and be used as a training facility.
Sunshadow Falls has a single terminal point, with modes including rollback and duel-cap. Raid leaders can pick between the two, as well as whether to have Alpha Authority's custom guns or swords. It takes 900 seconds (15 minutes) to capture the term. It ends when the raiding team has either captured the terminal, lost the terminal in overtime, or when the defending team has captured it. Raid numbers are negotiable. Overtime starts after 1 hour since the raid started.
Homeland is actively used and is a multiple purpose land mass, used for trainings, divisions, defenses, rallies, and gatherings.
It has a five point terminal system, involving the capture of three forts and two spawns spread far apart from eachother. Raids can be officialized in two modes, which include duel-cap, and timed. In duel-cap, whichever team reaches 1500 points first, wins. There is no raid timer for duel-cap. In timed, the team that has the most points in 1800 seconds (30 minutes), wins the raid. One point is gained every 3 seconds from a single captured terminal.
