  1. Off-topic, but as one of the commanders in Knightfall, I will just point out that your post is inaccurate. One of the main reasons behind that war (not the only one) was the existence of the secret TKR-GOB treaty. Have a nice day.
  2. Considering we enjoy the game per se (non-moving numbers), you can be sure this is as much entertainment as we can handle.
  3. Aren't you supposed to abduct women from... other villages or pillage... other villages? Why would you do that to your own?
  4. Ι disagree. In corporate terms, you make a distinction between the brand (fluff) and the mission/vision/culture of a company. It's the same here. @Rockefeller since you want a discussion, I would add a fourth element which may make you roll your eyes: infrastructure & operations. Manuals, bots, clear-cut documents describing operations (I am not talking just about "guides", but also about logistics related documentation) is of great importance. In some cases, a strong baseline in that field may cover constant changes (or lack of) leadership.
  5. Yeah, I don't buy it. I am sure you are just pulling a Scorpions trick so that you get to sell more tickets for your "last" concert, seeing how you got a new song.
  6. Ι think this one is already a default war declaration message (at least the first part).
  7. You really got me there, Rob. I thought you would suggest that the only solution is a bipolar Orbis. Then you pulled out the paperless gem. Cheers.
  8. Red Birthday flashbacks Let me just add that you are what you are also because of the antagonism and enemies you have come to face over the last 4 years. Here is to another 4 years and more, House Stark.
  9. RoH implies defence. Defence implies you protect members. The war started because Hannah and Alexio were specifically hit. Your "RoHs" were based literally on 5 raids ("mass raiding your folks"). Our RoH was based on the fact that Ampersand attacked the entirety of Arrgh, and not just the 3 people that participated to that "mass raid". Literally every other Swamp alliance just attacked Arrgh to support Ampersand on their aggressive activities. Calling this a "defense" is ridiculous, and submitting a RoH for that is even more so. About the "we didn't go to war" part, 1 out of 3 of your own government members clarified what your scope was. Just a few links to refresh your memory: https://forum.politicsandwar.com/index.php?/topic/29953-walk-the-plank-roh/&do=findComment&comment=473456 https://forum.politicsandwar.com/index.php?/topic/29953-walk-the-plank-roh/&do=findComment&comment=473508 https://forum.politicsandwar.com/index.php?/topic/29953-walk-the-plank-roh/&do=findComment&comment=473552 etc. Your goal was never to defend members or support them. Your goals were: Arrgh to lose profit Arrgh to lose members Essentially, Arrgh to be "taught a lesson" and stop raiding This has been clear through all the posts by the Swamp membership. Only Alexio and you pretend that this was not an anti-piracy campaign and was just a "defensive war". On the other hand, if you really believe you are in the defensive here, either we should be blushing for being considered such a great threat that you need 600 nations to attack us, or you should be worrying about the military capabilities of your bloc. In any case, #off-topic. Sorry for derailing the thread. I will keep it to that.
  10. I don't see anything below -100% here: https://politicsandwar.com/world/radiation/
  11. Yes. The Test server is just for testing. No game-related rules are moderated there.
  12. Mayor, just letting you know that you are being kinda unfair here. I would say TKR has "redeemed" itself already (if anyone really has to redeem for playing safe in a game) more than once. Adrienne points out to TKR's activities for the past 3 years. That's half of the Orbis history. And if you want to take revenge for Arrgh time's sake, do that while fighting from Arrgh.
  13. Hi MBaku. This has been mentioned before, but I will repeat it for you, since you spent some time to provide stats and well-formatted arguments. Our war is not a closed system. Arrgh is not raiding just Swamp. It is raiding other alliances too, at the same time. The losses you present (the $5B) are just replenished by that loot. You can use Borg's bot to get a rough number for that. We can keep up this war indefinitely, as we've been doing for the past 6 years. What you seem to misunderstand is this: you think that Arrgh has a peace-mode. It doesn't. The only thing you achieve with this war is to be the only bloc filling our defensive slots, while in "normal times" these slots are distributed among all Orbis alliances. In other words, your greatest achievement is countering for all of our raids in Orbis and letting the other alliances relax.
