deVillefort joined eRepublik at the start of V2 in South East England just after the election of Iain Keers as CP. After reading his first article, deVillefort joined the army on his first day. Joining the army also meant that he joined both the forums and IRC very early on and so found the rest of the UK community. After joining the RFA, deVillefort found a friendly and active group of people and started posting regularly and contributing where he could. During his time in the RFA, deVillefort made some good friends including GGRyan, DarkMantle and Emergy Maxfell.
After taking all the ministry jobs he could find, deVillefort ran for Parliament in August under the RFA. A weird malfunction with eRepublik, deVillefort luckily made it as one of an extra seven congressman who never should have got through.
deVillefort slowly grew more and more active within the RFA and found himself in a position to take on the role of Party President on September 15th. At this point, he also took over as Minister of Recruitment while it was a department under the MoHA. During his term as Party President, GGRyan was successful in his CP campaign and became the first CP from the RFA in over a year.
After the end of his PP term, deVillefort started to lose interest in the game and went inactive for a couple of weeks.
deVillefort went to New Zealand on its first day and he had put his name down for the Congress primaries, which he won. He came 27th with 11 votes in New Zealand's very first congress election.
After a couple of weeks, deVillefort came back to eRepublik, however, felt like he needed a change. A great opportunity came when 6 new countries were introduced to the game and one of them was New Zealand. When deVillefort joined New Zealand it was already obvious that the new country was not going to have an easy start. Two groups were fighting for control of the country, both claiming to be the true inhabitants. One group was mainly from English speaking countries such as the USA, Canada and the UK. Meanwhile, the opposing group was made almost entirely from ex- Serbian and Slovenian citizens. Along with members such as Thingol, Albert Neurath and Thomas765, deVillefort helped establish the Peace 'n' Prosperity Party, the right-wing party in New Zealand and nowadays seen as the main ATO party against the Serbian Group.
At the second CP elections Don KronoX and the Aotearoa party gained a landslide victory over the ATO group and deVillefort was made Minister Of Foreign Affairs. Unfortunately, this also caused most of the opposing parties’ members to leave and the PnPP made plans to move abroad. At this point, deVillefort felt that is was time to head back to the UK where he belonged. However, deVillefort still continues his FA work from abroad and recently helped the country make steps towards New Zealand joining Phoenix.

On returning to UK, deVillefort chose not to rejoin the RFA but to move to the UKRP. He ran for Congress on the December elections and succeeded.
