  1. You forgot NPO hitting their ally's prot in defence of a co belligerent they ostensibly have no ties with.
  2. Oh, no. The rest of the sphere also had no compelling enough reason to stop the war. I'm pretty sure that TKR and friends would've also preferred if it had gone a bit longer to dish out some extra damage.
  3. They can, but there's also nothing keeping those nations from keeping stuff in house as is either way (other than for the tediousness of applying/removing embargoes). The cooldown would result in a rotation at least.
  4. To be honest, probably 90%+ of my games were with Cloaca, so...
  5. If baseball is seen as a source of income (which, given the amount and nature of the feedback, seems to be the case), there's no logical counter argument to the idea of increasing payout and having a cooldown between games. Assuming that the payout is the same (which is the idea), there's no sensible reason for which you would want to spend more time for the same payout when you could potentially spend less time for said same payout. More to the point, such a format would make it more appealing, and have more people playing it. Given that newfound friendships is a plus pointed out by a few people, having more people playing baseball would be a plus, don't you think?
  6. Substantial enough to where we couldn't get on board with rolling BK until a log which substantiated weeks of rumors and intent dropped. Yes, having a good standing is a corner stone for something more substantial. That's the first step TKR had to take because our relationship was in the negative at the time. And yes, that's why I said "try". Realistically, complete lack of animosity (or even just rivalry) is not attainable. Doesn't change the fact that you'd want to at least not give a third party the reason to side with your rival/enemy over you, or just being neutral.
  7. We (KETOGG) are. There's a reason why we only sign people if they have no outwardly ties. We don't want a situation such as that of TFP in this war. I wouldn't underestimate SRD's disdain for CoS if I were you. And those were serious enough to have them roll us alongside TKR and tCW in 69, and us roll them in turn afterwards. And yeah, sometimes people reconsider priorities when another sphere had been trying to interfere since day one, and on top of that, had reached out to other people to have them rolled too. I mean, it's the job of FA to try to have a good standing with other parties. Whichever the reason may be for it. So I don't get what the problem is.
  8. So, your issue is talks about IQ violating your notion of minispheres (because "collusion"), even though the concept wasn't fully in place because IQ still existed. TKR being friendly with Grumpy/Guardian doesn't change the fact that they (Grumpy/Guardian) hated CoS' guts, doubly so now that they perceived that CoS had replaced them as TKR's allies. And this doesn't even include how some of KT/TGH's members felt about people in Valinor and CoS (and I'm certain that this was reciprocal), and to a lesser extent, TKR, due to 69. To pretend that it was just positive vibes between both of us is simply dishonest.
  9. I can certainly attest to him not being banterous in such situations. That I have, though he's not been involved in the peace talks as much, so it's got no bearing over this.
  10. So, Buorhann is simultaneously the grand puppet master of KERCHTOG (that's the impression I get from how people refer to him), yet his opinion is dismissable. That's not how things work.
  11. Indeed. It is a true sign of a gentlemen's agreement to tell the other to frick off (in private, mind you) and to nuke their embassy. Yup.
  12. You're smart enough to know how coalition dynamics work. The point isn't so much covering for people you have no ties with. The point is doing so at the detriment of the people you do have ties with. As for the rest, Chaunce's post offers the best explanation in regards to that. TEst was nothing more than the entry point to use as a remotely plausible excuse. If they actually mattered, you'd have hit far sooner than you did. The timing between t$ signing Carthago and OWR, and the hit on TEst is not coincidental. You're just wasting your time trying to claim otherwise. As the guy who first started using it in the context of this war; yes, it is just a meme. Now that you know that it was me the one who came across the video and started using it, I'd like to remind you that our super ultra mega punitive earth salting treatment of TRF, an alliance that we had actual beef with, was... only two weeks (or two rounds, rather) of war and a color swap. Not even a formal surrender required. So yeah, sorry. It's just meant to be a historical meme with no deeper meaning attached to it.
  13. Just like how you hit t$'s prot in defence of your co-belligerents with which you ostensibly have no ties with? You have no room to whine about hypocrisy. You engage on the same thing, but worse, because your actions are directly jeopardizing your official ally. You're exceptionally thin skinned in regards to historical memes.
  14. Don't forget to mention that they're also trying to pin all of this on you.
  15. The only thing more bottomless than his PR is his idiocy.
  16. Yeah... that ship sailed like a year ago.
  17. I recall them swapping leader and other noteworthy govt members after I cancelled the ODP. That was, if my memory serves me right, in September of 2017. By early 2018 they had already changed things radically. 4sh months is not a lot of time, especially given other metrics in this game. That requires me to have read it. Not particularly, although it was probably at it's best. Though, much of the credit goes to Felkey. Even if a lot of bad blood happened afterwards (and oh boy did he frick up a lot later down the road), it's only fair to recognize his contribution then and there. Printer is owed credit as well.
