    How long will this war go on for?

    You should be. I find you to be one of the more reasonable posters and even though we may not agree on things I can understand where you are coming from. I can argue that it isn't at all what we have now and that this war has proven such. Yes, TKR and KETOGG have went down their own path but the Blob is alive and well. Maybe this war is what was needed to finally push alliances into doing their own thing, who knows. I am not referring to mirco leaders but more of alliances like Carthage, Soup, FARK and so on, that are not big enough to dictate the game in the current meta we play. Let's be honest here. Soup would have zero voice in this game without being apart of CHAOS. Since Chaos is a small sphere it allows us to have the ability to impact the game and help make decisions. Whereas, an alliance like Carthage which is in orbit of BK's massive sphere doesn't have the same voice that we do. I am sure there are exemptions to the norms but if years of playing these online sandboxes have taught me anything it's that big fish decide the rules. I also think that in order for this game to truly survive the test of time is that we need to allow "new players" into the grand game. They aren't as jaded as us old men and are much more willing to try something "new". I spent some time in the mirco world and it is in some ways the more interesting part of the game due to the willingness to take risk. The players like Sketchy that troll these new alliances forgets that the reason many of them exist is due to the meta of the game being locked into the elite few. It's basically an old boys club where if you don't cuddle up and play nice to them than you are trash. Alliances that protect these mircos shouldn't be doing it solely for the reason of building subordinate future allies but to teach young alliances how to be effective so they can become useful members to the community as a whole. Not just to the parent alliance. If your former protectorate chooses to do it's own thing and challenge you than you should take satisfaction in knowing that you actually done your job. What makes NPO's entrance into the war so wrong is that it actually hurt your strategic position. It doesn't make sense to enter a war you had no business being in that would have weakened 3 of the 4 major blocs. You guys would have had at least 3 months to strengthen your position plus would have effectively sold Chaos along with KETOGG on your willingness to play a different type of game which most likely have ensured your safety both long and short term.

    How long will this war go on for?

    Long time fan, first time quoter here. The reason why bipolarity is so bad is that it leads to stagnation as "weaker" leaders line up with the "bigger" bloc. This allows them safety without actually having to play the FA portion of the game. When the world divides into various blocs, with various interests, it forces alliances to play the grand game instead of piggie backing on the hard work of alliances like BK, NPO, TKR and so on. The idea around it is that with there being so many self interests at play that it would lead to more drama, intrigue and conflict. Not necessarily war for the sake of war but actual politics. This would be the fun most of us are talking about. Something that this game truly lacks since you can basically tell how each war will play out long before it actually kicks off. (Sides wise) The other big problem I have with a bipolar world is that it places the whole game on a few key figures instead of allowing even small alliance leaders the opportunity to create their own path. Too much of this game is decided by a too few people which hurts the entertainment level the average member gets from it. Look how quiet the forums were before this war as evidence to support my claim. What strategic position do you guys really have in an endless sandbox where entertainment is created solely by the player base? Wars are not that devastating since all you lose is some time and cheap infra. All you are doing is enabling stagnation with this illusion of protection. I hope I explained my opinion well enough.

    $yndicate Businessweek Update: Cessation of External Venture

    People assumed it was bait in order to justify Pacifica entering the war. The whole phrase "if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, its probably a duck" is what happened. It's a logical assumption. Happens all the time like how people assume Chaos and KETOG are going to cuddle next to the fire after this war. Sure, it can look like we are dating but it's more like roll people and chill. Either way tS hitting Grumpy was interference into the "greater" war which is what really gets under people's skin. I appreciate them taking a swing and standing by their word as well. Something you don't see much of these day. Hats off to you tS.

    Name the laggy global war

    Great show but we aren't fighting zombies. Roqbots doesn't count and the world will be the same when we are done.

    $yndicate Businessweek Update: Cessation of External Venture

    When they done nothing to show anyone that it was disbanded than it forces people to speculate and mouth off. This war was their opportunity to prove that it was over and that they were serious. Instead of showing the world and all the "haters" wrong they decided to prove them right. Maybe I'm just getting old and forgetting the past but Pacifica has always been a strong willed alliance. Which is why I am shocked they entered the war.

    Camelot has made a name for itself by preying on alliances and being opportunitist. So I wouldn't be throwing any stones if I was you.

    Nice to see you again. Thought you would be sitting out this war since it would interfere with your plowing season. Hope all is well buddy.

    Hey George it's been awhile. The moment your plans got leaked you forced Chaos and KETOG to react. They had the choice of either, waiting for the plans to come to fruition or hit now. Choosing to work together and taking the initiative in the war is by far the best option. Doesn't matter how it ends since waiting for them to get hit would have hurt alot more. The biggest problem I have, and many others have, is that the blob is forcing the same old cycles. How many times do we all have to fight the same people? Sure there are minor shifts but all in all it's the same old song and dance. Your guys inability to shift creates stagnation instead of creating the drama that would feed the masses with the entertainment that they so desperately desire. Think about how fun it would be to see the build up of TC vs Chaos posturing on the forums and maneuvering in the back channels to gain enough support to effectively put each other down. I don't mean building mass coalition that dogpiles that we seen before but getting that little "edge". I was looking forward to a SOUP-FR rivalry developing or Acadia waking up from its slumber to challenge someone. Instead all we got was a group sitting here activating every treaty they can in a massive chain with minimum effort. Alliance leaders have to start taking some responsibility for the entertainment of the game. Pacifica saying "we don't care, we do what we want" is the wrong attitude. As a top alliance they have an obligation to entertain. No different than any alliance on the KETOG/Chaos side. Which is something we have tried to do and honestly, been doing. Although, I applaud T$ for "taking out a threat" and getting the forums blowing up. I just cannot help but worry about what it could do for the game. It makes N$O look like they still haven't removed themselves from IQ which could mean we completely revert back to a two sided unbalanced, political game. Where dogpiles are the only form of war. Good luck in your wars.

    Stop feeding it. The more you feed him the bigger he gets and more justified he feels.

    If you were able to hurt my feelings I might as well just quit now. Good luck in the war.
