The new western publishers of Last Order (Kodansha) requested that the group stop scanlating this title, and the group have complied. Consequently, chapter 114 is the last release by them.

Personally, it's a sad day for me as I've been following the group releases for longer than I can remember.

the raws are still available of new chapters, and another group has already picked up where crazyankan left off.

As far as I know, the new group (Pixie Dust) is using the translations from the Rippersanime group. The future of the scanlations depends on whether or not those translations continue, unless the group at some point gets its own TLer of course.

Personally I hope it continues. I've got a shelf full of Alita, and so have two of my relatives. That wouldn't have happened without the scanlations. But it's not my decision after all.

Yup. Just saying it's not the end of the line. Like my favorite reader site says, "Exalt the manga above the self" or something like that.

We have been active for over 9 years I think.
And we will still be active with the latest translations.

I submitted releases for those two new chapters, but they mysteriously vanished from pending list in User CP after some time. What's the matter?

Probably because group doesn't have "forum, website, or IRC channel", but they already released two chapters (via Tokyo Toshokan and Mangatraders). I guess it's not my place to judge the rules, but at least a bit of feedback would be good. Lack of any notification why those submissions were rejected discourages me as an updater.
