    Protectorate Rabbit Hole

    IQ, EMC and TKR Sphere, Paracov, most spheres go Protectorate crazy.

    Protectorate Rabbit Hole

    Since Partisan is no more there's no reason to keep this intel private, his plan was to unite a bunch of small alliances under the protectorate banner to have tS seemed to be less of a threat. After the war he was going to continue to grow/foster the micro band of doom under Syndicate to be used against IQ/TKRsphere should the need arise, or if IQ became saucy and tried to isolate them post-war. Mind you this was a Partisan plan, not a tS plan, they weren't privy to that knowledge.

    This has been my favorite post of the wars end.

    The Future of PnW

    Yes yes yes, clearly our unwillingness to budge from your sides refusals was clearly the reason it dragged out 🙄. As I said had the terms reached been proposed by your side early on the war would have been done long ago. We didn't have a need to peace out, due to all the winning. Virtually all the talk I saw in our channels was "We're fine letting this go as long as it needs to". No needed a peace, was there even a want? Not really. It was a more apathy towards peace. If it happens it happens, if not, that's okay too. The fact that you think the terms were ridiculous just further solidifies the fact of how little you actually understand about these games. The fact that you think the side who supplied the original terms had to make counter offers is hilarious. As someone who actually does contractual negotiations, when coming from the position of power (see: winning side) and you go "we want X", and the side coming from no power (see: losing side) goes "no". The onus doesn't fall on us to find a compromise when there's no reason to. You guys need to come up with something we find acceptable. The fact that you don't understand that sort of thing.. I mean.. SRD my man. I'm at a loss for words. Going to go back to ignoring you, consider your overwhelming ignorance a victory.

    The Future of PnW

    You absolutely can. The joke terms were not what held up the peace talks. There were moments that they slowed things down, yes, but what caused months of stagnation was the desire to protect Vacation Mode Nations/War Dodgers and The bot. And delays caused by joke terms were handled in a fraction of the time, and honestly could have been entirely handled in a day or two should representatives in the negotiations been more active. The people handling negotiations for their side were a joke. When still wanting to get art for returning trades is the hill you want to die upon for months then yes, I will call that stupid. The GOB term which clogging things up was resolved pretty quickly once SRD/Ripper made an effort to resolve it beyond the initial GOB response of "fark you". The hiccup between Guardian and TEst was resolved with "If you don't like the term months after agreeing to it, you can buy your way out or simply suggest something similarly styled and we can work it out". Our joke terms didn't grind down the negotiations for months. Their desire to keep art requirements for returned funds did. That's the difference. This war took 4-5 months of prep work in bringing people together. You're not wrong. It's called political maneuvering. I made it sound like it was take it or leave it, and like you said, we got what we wanted. There wasn't miscommunication. Simply the political theater of it all.

    The Future of PnW

    In depth and highly inaccurate analysis. The point of the trade bot term was accomplished for everyone fighting, thus no concession. Had they offered that compromise in the first week of negotiations it would have been accepted. The hang up was in the art stupidity that TKR had. They valiantly fought in hopes of keeping art for return trades. Definitely worth it. Arrgh decided it didn’t want the Arrgh term. It was dropped per their request while there were still other issues. The main reason you’re so absolutely utterly wrong is there was NO reason to drag the fighting out that long outside of laziness/stupidity on TKR spheres side OR they just didn’t want the war to end yet. The conclusion that was reached could have been reached months ago had TKR sphere made any effort in peace talks. They were obscenely inactive. Had the terms we ended with been reached in the first few days the war would have likely been over within the week of the agreement. Them holding out and fighting did not get them better terms. They would have gotten the same terms without holding out two extra months. That’s why you’re wrong. There was no point to holding out unless it’s what they wanted. Besides that it was pure ineptitude by all of their leadership.

    It's NAP time

    I'm just surprised Grumpy downgraded its treaty with Guardian to a NAP and hired SRD to do their announcements for them.

    Rivalries

    The rivalry that shaped this game the most was Paracov vs Syndsphere.

    The game is simple. Dancing through the mindfield of douchebaggery can be difficult. I would know. I’m one of the largest land mines.

    Hope you try to have fun with the terms and make lulz-y posts with the flag/name.

    And all you're doing is giving them exactly what they want. You're inside no one's head, not even your own. We were all busy laughing at how extremely butthurt you got over the name term in the other war. When you show how easy it is to push your simple little buttons, of course people are going to give them a little tap when it's so mindbogglingly easy to rustle your little jimmies.

    I honestly forgot we were at war until yesterday. I would say good game, but both of the nations I was assigned to attack deleted. One within minutes the other within a day, so I didn't really have a time to play and find anything good to say about them. So instead of two I'll just say g Grumpy.
