    Hello Orbis, Marginal-Micro-Former-Meat-Shield-Co-Leader of The Horsemen here. Just a simple announcement (Full Disclosure, I'm 44% drunk) but unfortunately we will be severing all ties with The New Pacific Order, effective immediately. We have always been a loyal bunch but We were lied to, for whatever reason....and I don't even care to investigate the reason..or explain the reason...as even in our dissolution..The Horsemen will do our best to be loyal....even to an alliance that doesn't deserve it. So NPO, best of luck to you. I'm sure you will find the happiness and Orbis Domination you are looking for but as for The Horsemen, we do what we say we will do and we expect the same from our allies. My responsibility to my guys is number 1. Maintaining an alliance with a group that only sees us as a meat-shield cannot continue. I'm keeping this brief. If I continue to type, vitriol and nonsense will come forth. Also, the average attention span of the modern human is 300 words or less. Ok, full, full disclosure..i'm 74% drunk. -The Dude Oh yeah..we withdraw from this nonsense (war).

    Today we have hit a milestone as an alliance, Grumpy is now 1000 days old. You may be saying to yourselves, 1000 days doesn't make it your birthday... Well folks when you are as old and grumpy as we are, everyday is a milestone. I am extremely proud of all of my members and allies over the years that have helped us and allowed us to reach 1000 days old. Many imitators have been created and disbanded since I thought to myself... man taxes are the worst, I should create an alliance that would run exactly how I if I was a member would want it to run. After a few months of procrastinating and a global war, Grumpy Old Bastards was born! With the belief that the best person to spend your money is you, upholding a strict membership standard, aligning ourselves with alliances that I felt upheld similar standards to our own. I believe many of our members agree with me, as we have probably the best retention rate in the game, in 1000 days I have removed 3 members for not meeting our standards, and 5 people have left voluntarily. Thank you to our allies over the years, TKR, Hogwarts, tC. Thank you to our current allies Best buds in Guardian, and our new friends in KT and TGH, you boys have been making the last few months interesting since we joined up. A quick shout out to some of the guys that have been with us since the beginning. Aenir, battle beast with his hatred of infra, Moons over my Hammy!, Korben, the silent assassin, Goldie, you inactive sack of crap. Ajax, our first little nation look at you, now over 30 cities! Most importantly my 2 right hand man and lady, Sammy and Pres, Grumpy couldn't have survived without you guys! Thanks to all of you! Lastly, I would be remiss not to mention all our enemies over the years, this game is no fun without someone to hate, thanks for the motivation to continue to build and grow. Hear is to the next 1000 days! -SRD

A more thorough investigation into the matter will be announced in the coming days.

    BK: we want to rebuild our public perception of being a strong military alliance Also BK: call in NPO Edit: it has been called to my attention that TCW said this, not BK Let it be known that BK performed so poorly in this war that I couldn't tell them apart from TCW

    >we did everything we could to avoid this outcome Someone smell bullshit in the air? Well, it's now a target rich environment. (Psst, Roq, when a plan leaks that implicates a cooperation between BK/NPO on hitting the two smaller spheres - you can't exactly go, "We did everything we could to avoid this outcome" after you prove it right)

    Good to see there was never any reason to doubt the leaks I guess

    Also don't forget N$O can't fight BKsphere because there is "no tension" but they have no problem hitting Guardian/Grumpy in a war they are massively outnumbered despite having no "hard feelings".

    Gonna be hard trying to convince people that IQ ever died or that NPO is not an alliance that just seeks a hegemony at every turn after this. This is your most blatant and likely riskiest attempt at doing this. If it doesn't pay off, I dare say your last.

    Gonna have to see some logs or something that we were gonna move fronts and hit NPO considering we actively shot down ideas of hitting NPO several times throughout this war.

    Wow this thread has been an eye opener. I never realized how problematic my behavior has been. I’d like to first offer an apology to all of orbis for both ruining the game and literally having slaves. KT has informed me only the second is ok, but not both. But I do see this issue here and would like to offer several personal apologies. First, I’d like to apologize to shifty and @Dusty, my current slaves. I know being under BK’s boot has been horrible for your alliances and their growth, and can only imagine the victimization you feel. I’d also like to apologize to @Elijah Mikaelson, @Sval, @Khai Jäger, @KiWilliam, and @Epi. Your slavery goes beyond even the current slaves, as you internalized it. Your Stockholm Syndrome became so advanced you (un)willingly signed BK after. We all know there is zero gains in signing BK, and any free folk would run as far as possible. I will also apologize to @TheNG, @Malal, and @Alexio15. We may not even be signed but regardless I personally make you clean BK’s boots with your tongue daily. Truly disgusting. Finally and most significantly I would like to apologize to @Sir Scarfalot. It is apparent that BK is on his mind so much that we have mentally enslaved him. It is disgusting how my slaver abilities are so effective I can mentally enthrall an enemy during a war. Does my evil have no bounds? I will reiterate how sorry I am for both myself and BK. Going forward I promise to explicitly stick with ruining the game, the slaves can always come later.

    I see you've recovered your voice now that daddy has come to save you, I can't imagine how much strain your throat must have been under when you were screaming at protectorates to come save you for you to shut up completely

    Turns out when you use allies as meatshields to compensate for your shitty milcom, they tend to not be allies for much longer.

    i appreciate the attempt at polish, but I don't see how you can sell this as anything other than an effort to impede our war effort. I mean. I'm not fan of what Grumpy and Guardian have been doing politically, but there's only one answer to the question of "why this moment", isn't there. And what we have, by extension, is you punishing the two smaller spheres who had the guts to actually implement the vision you were giving yourself so much credit for. Speaking as someone who's been trying, it's a pretty damned bleak statement, and I hoped for better despite having every reason to expect this. Good luck with this one, t$.

    His throat was under strain for other reasons that may or may not be related to tS entering the war

    Regarding the inevitable 'hurr durr you're so salty' posts. First, its an increadibly childish and completely non-contributing response. Even the shitposts and yelling back and forth are more interesting. And I say this as much to people who use it on our side, on yours, and everywhere else online. It's just a really dumb response. That said, there is some real palpable disappointment and frustration here. While many saw it coming, it sucks to be back to the same old IQ vs Non IQ song and dance. We spent years with everyone largely in agreement that the two sphere world (be it the syndisphere vs paracov or later IQ vs EMC then IQ vs everyone) was boring and hurting the game. After finally appearing to make some progress, with multiple relevant spheres, it all comes crashing down. Add in some self directed salt and frustration at actually buying into your claims only to be proven wrong about our hopes, and you get this thread. Call it salty if you will, but people are going to be unhappy that the state of the game has regressed back to this.

    I've read a ton of spineless disingenuous crap this last week but these 2 paragraphs take the cake, hands down. Welcome back, SyndIQ hegemony.
