    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).

    An Orbis Chronicle: The Endgame It was a beautiful day in Francoberg, Roqovia’s capital. The public forums were quiet and the waters were stagnant, just as their citizens liked it. At the center was Roquentin’s palatial hamster cage, where the Lords of IQ had gathered to make their ritual offerings of carrots and treaties. At each side of Roquentin’s exercise wheel stood his most loyal advisors: Dio the Dildio and Auctor also known as “Diet Inst”. Roquentin was listening to the complaints of his many subjects who were seeking shelter from the great menace known as Chaos. Among these were NPO’s protectorates such as InfoWars, Goon Squad, and the Black Knights. BK in particular was concerned as they had just finished a massive dogpile against TKR and were caught immediately planning another massive dogpile against TKR. “My lord you must help us contain Chaos”, Leo the Brave and Beautiful leader of BK begged. “They are arguably the 4th, maybe even the 3rd largest sphere in the game and a massive threat to us.” “and why are they fighting you?” Roquentin asked. “Because they found a plan where we said we would fight Chaos and you would hit Keto. I told them it wasn’t true but can you now please hit Keto while we fight Chaos?” Leo answered. “and what were chaos and keto doing before they found this out?” Roq asked. “Uhh… They were fighting each other...” Leo meekly answered. “An obviously fake war! They are fighting each other to give the illusion that they would be willing to fight each other,” Diet Inst said with disgust. “pathetic i agree. as if such empty actions could cause us to stray from the path of dynamism” Roquentin murmured between bites of carrot. “but if we are pinning keto down, are you confident that 4:1 odds will be enough for you to defeat chaos on your own?” the Rodent of Consolidation asked. Leo sweat nervously. “Uhhh we might need some help there too...” he admitted. “Forgive me for speaking Roq, but if we help then everyone will know our split was fake.” Dildio said. “no we will just say the people who suggested our split might be fake these last few weeks forced us to reform,” Roq said. “Didn’t we say that exact same thing about EMC for over a year?” Dildio asked? “uhh…. no,” Roq answered. “Also we have logs of them planning to his us!” Diet Inst insisted. “But we only have logs of people wanting to hit IQ,” Dildio said. “exactly,” Roq grinned. “Plus we could just say we have more logs that we can’t share for... reasons,” Diet Inst suggested. “Didn’t we say that in Trail of Tiers?” Dildio asked? “uhh…. no,” Roq answered. “We could say it's to kill the whales,” Diet Inst suggested. “Didn't we just use that for Knightfall?” Dildio asked, momentarily bringing the room to silence. “so uh... it is agreed. we will involve ourselves in this war and it will be everybody elses fault,” Roquentin proclaimed. Leo threw himself at Roq’s furry paws and wept in gratitude. As the meeting ended and once he was sure everyone was gone, Roquentin pressed a button that was hidden by a layer of wood pellets. A hologram of a pigeon flickered in and Roq knelt before it. “It begins my apprentice. Soon there will be no stopping us,” the image said. Outside the Stronghold of The Knights Radiant The armies of TKR amassed by their Stronghold’s gates where they were joined by their friends and partners. Among them was CuppyCakeYums the Cat Thief, who was munching on his favorite snack. Waddling next to him was JtTeE the Adored and beside him Manthrax the Sad dragged his feet. Hidden towards the back was Ameyuri the Fox selling her usual illicit goods. As they prepared Queen Adrienne spoke. “Our enemies have reunited. Last time they threw everything they had at us and we proved we would not crumble. Today we turn the tide. Today The Knights Radiant and her friends will beat back the Desolation. Today we fight!”

    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

    Hello Orbis, Again Those Fark fellas (upon closer inspection) seem to be mighty fine and as such we decided to forego the courting period and just go ahead and get hitched with a totally platonic-full-old-fashioned MDOAP. If you're reading this, I'm guessing you know what that means and I don't have to list 9 articles that don't mean much. Basically Horsemen help Fark. Fark help Horsemen. Until we have a scandalous falling out and WTF nukes us both. Along with WTF we will now be known as The Blood-Death-Scary-Nefarious-intentioned World-Farking-Horse-Force-men. The above name is still in the beta stage but in the meantime we will just be three separate alliances not hellbent on Orbisian domination.

    >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)

    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.

    This is a just a reminder that you are all playing a game, and that behind each screen is a living, breathing person with feelings. I hope that everyone can be respectful of each other, even when we disagree, and realize that while this is a competitive game, there's no need to take it to a personal level. Be kinder to each other. We can all work together to make a better, friendlier, less toxic community by having compassion and respect for one another.

    1. Everything there was clearly dated as being before the formation of N$O. The logs clearly reference IQ, which isn't supposed to exist anymore. There was a loose idea that came a month post-Knightfall and a month pre-Orbis Shuffle, not even remotely close to the smoking gun you're trying to paint it as. There was no divvying up of alliances by us like you saw with the BK log and no discussion of it outside then and soon to be allies. In other words, no plan and no coalition building. We were recovering and discussing potential future paths and then IQ split. Given that we're at war with the BK half, guess you're aware of who we saw as the bigger immediate threat in the long run, seeing as they took every opportunity to try and escalate things with us since the end of Knightfall. We had no such qualms with NPO. 2. Chaos was not formed in order to hit NPO. That is what you asked and that is 100% true. Forming alliances and lasting relationships for the sole purpose of attacking someone is, in my opinion, idiotic. When we formed Chaos, the goal was not to hit any specific grouping, and I believe we said as much in our opening statement. Our goal was to embark on a new FA path with people we hadn't been allied to before and that's what we did. 3. Your DoW literally points to recent events from this war, not vague discussions from months ago and other than a random log from an unidentified person, there's no evidence that this was part of our plan. I am happy to show you log after log after log of us being against hitting NPO this war.

    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.

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

    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.

    Made the evening before we joined the war, underneath the assumption that people actually wanted a shot at t$/NPO and thus weren't going to flip their lids about our entry.
