    peace talks

    The thing about war is it's all about the victory conditions. You might think you've beaten somebody, but until they agree with you, you haven't. Some people are plain crazy and will never admit defeat.
  2. You have 2 mutual defence pacts, you no longer have a foreign policy, you are an auxiliary force
  3. My biggest issue with GOONS at the moment is they appear to be mostly Chapo reddit rather than Chapo twitter, and as such must be purged
  4. This is the fifth war system this game has had. They had to get rid of the other four due to Arrgh
  5. This must be what passes for a witty rejoinder in GOONS.
  6. Well in that case we shouldn't be any trouble to deal with, after all how many threads do alliances start about a trash mob? A mere 2, 3, 10 threads? Mister Goonso, you will learn the true meaning of fear.
  7. This too is something I have heard many times from mightier foes. We outlasted them all, and they were all much better than you. Your mere existence here puts you yourself as a nerd of the lowest order, along with everyone else here
  8. Your nations are weak and umworthy, though your words are amusing. I have heard this speech a hundred times from a hundred alliances, alliances full of great warriors rather than the pathetic toadies and cowardly prostitutes who sell themselves for so little. Your pride will become desperation as your bowels turn to water and your allies prove to be useless. No one and nothing can save you from us.
  9. I refuse to accept this as a genuine snek communique as it is not in the form of a Taylor Swift music video
  10. Pantheon exploited their relationship with ts for years to grow to enormous size without ever being capable of defending themselves. Pantheon would not exist without ts.

    War Sides

    The entire concept of sides in a large war is deliberately binary in order to preclude sovereign decision making and to render treasonous self interest
  12. The bait dangled lacks finesse and the cynicism of this move is somewhat obvious, however this will sow deep hatreds and those are always interesting

    So...What Now?

    Who could have guessed being a syndicate protectorate would make you a target rather than safe, or that treaties with both sides would not protect you? If only someone had written about the folly of treaties
  14. People have tried but you can't just decide to have an elite warrior alliance, also without indiscriminate raiding you would have to rely on peacetime economy for 90% of your time and would become yourself an attractive raid target. Also you would be surprised how personally people take being attacked in a mercenary deal
  15. Arrgh never defined any such differentiation, we've always considered our raids as wars and wars as raids. Leave the quibbling for the e-lawyers, and leave the e-lawyers on the bottom of the ocean. As for GOONS, like every youngun' who considers themselves to be hot stuff they seek to prove themselves against our captains. Let's see if you're any tougher than all the other ones. Also those familiar with Arrgh history will know we never gave a damn about the rules or announcing wars either.
  16. As an aside, there is an incredible amount of revisionist history being written in here. Syndicate did not 'bail out' Arrgh, it was part of the compensation package offered to us to participate on the side of Syndisphere. Ironically the DNR terms specifically allowed for alliance wars, assuming this clause would only benefit UPN. The intervention on behalf of Syndicate was entirely due to the hubris of UPN and DEIC in the Purple Spy War. This led to a glorious working partnership with Syndisphere which sadly ended with the rise of TKR to prominence who sought to end our reign of terror on the high seas.
  17. Honestly though slowing the game down more won't solve the problem, the problem is this kind of game is only interesting to a very specific kind of nerd. Most inactive people are permanently inactive, on that they tried the game, didn't like it and never logged back in. The remaining inactive population are people who are no longer interested but have fallen victim to the sunk cost fallacy, so they keep their nations around on life support until they are forced to choose abandonment or obliteration via war, at which time they finally quit
  18. 1 turn every 30 minutes my dude, let's separate the wheat from the chaff
  19. Amusing anecdote from the Purple Spy war, as an alternative to the giant DNR imposition I offered Emmad a freebie war assist from Arrgh, as I had launched the war on the suspicion that UPN was preparing to attack Arrgh, which proved to be false information. UPN refused this. 3 months later, UPN and friends narrowly lost a war where we, Arrgh, changed the balance of power. If Emmad had taken me up on our offer instead of imposing their terms on us, they would have won and history would have been different.
  20. That was hilarious, those treasure raids were the most fun I've ever had in this game.
  21. I've decided to return for some fun and plunder.
  22. Let's get all the band back together
