    If you were truly forced into this whole situation of hitting Rose, that implies to me that you didn't want to do it. If you *really* didn't want to do it, then why didn't you just leak the logs to Rose, hit BW with Rose, leak the logs as CB, and explain your actions to everyone.

    The fact that you went through with the plan of hitting Rose implies to me that you were always interested in hitting Rose, whether it was "forced" upon you or not.

    If you truly did not appreciate the actions of BW, then why didn't you choose to punish them?

    Im not sure if this got buried by Wana's response or people just decided to ignore it.

    But with how rare a response from rose is on the forums im surprised no one jumped at the opportunity to explain/ argue/agree. (granted its more or less pointed at keegoz / clock leadership and they might not be online or building a response)

    this post is at the literal end of page 2 if you wanna quote it yourself, it deserves some attention especially by a power that rarely speaks 'officially' on the forums outside of Original Post.

    As one of the leader of Clock I can certainly say we had no intention of fighting anyone else other than Backroom for their plot on hitting clock. Clock with HoF is still not strong enough to beat either Celestial or HW in a 1v1 let alone without them. So just because you're being paranoid of a weak sphere possibly chaining you make a temporarily MDP with the other biggest sphere? what kind of joke is this. 

    this is a bit off from the original topic of this thread but i legit dont know how to get this quote over to the cata DoW

    The backrooms with DP was not strong enough to beat clock let alone without them so as we stated in your war post we explored an option to balance that out with a strictly limited intervention to make it even where you would still would have had a 40 member advantage in the 25-29 range, 20 if HoF left at that time. Everywhere else it would be even where we could have a legitimate chance at a victory while still keeping it fair, as stated previously that plan fell through so the cards were off and our militarization was in response to everyone else militarizing.

    The point of the above ^ is to give you an understanding of the position the backrooms found itself in, you state in the quoted post you cant beat Hollywood or celestial in a 1v1 so your only option in the short term is to ask for help from another sphere, your position in regards to Hollywood and Celestial is the EXACT same we here at the backrooms found ourselves in with relation to our power vs clocks.

    I AM NOT SAYING clock had plans or will make plans to hit Hollywood or Celestial with that of another sphere the point of this post is to give you, the leaders of clock, an understanding of the position the backrooms found themselves in with relation to our power vs clocks in a hypothetical 1v1.

    We're trying to build something a little different with the new HM.

    We don't want any single alliance in the sphere to be seen as the leader or to call the shots. Naturally you are going to have alliances be stronger in certain areas than others (IE one can have a really strong FA dept, while another can be really strong in milcom - I'd call these "Anchors", but that's very different from being a leader). Moving away from having de-facto bloc leaders and having more close cooperation vs instruction can be helpful.
    Having a single "leader" can cause frustration within a bloc. If you have alliances that don't feel they're being listened to or don't feel empowered to speak up within a bloc you're not going to work as effectively as a team as you should be able to.

    Yes we are the smallest bloc, and we have a long way to go to be a sizable force in the game, but we're working on it.

    Off topic, but i must commend you on the decision to remain on your own path. I was convinced Mystery INC (Now Haunted Mansion) would split apart and spread across orbis. But look at you! sailing about the edge, small... yes, Outside the big 4 spheres... yes, but i'd say that has its own list of benefits and now that it seems you bottomed out and stabilized you can only really grow from here, internally and otherwise. I cheer you on in hopes that your success will show that equal partnership with 'anchors' as you say will serve as inspiration for other typically non-leader powers.

    The forums have been dying imo because the game is recruiting a younger audience now who prefer to use discord over the forums. This has led to a lack of new people filling in on the forums when one of us older players hang up the gloves. Which means characters who do want to RP etc. are decreasing over time. Whether that can be turned around, I guess we'll see.

    A sad truth, i myself have avoided the forums most my career and it something i intend to fix for the future and something i wanna encourage the younger players to do as well.

    An issue with discord, particularly the public spats usually in Royal Orbis News gets lost in a sea of randomness unless you were there for it where as on the forums you can go to any topic and read through it without any side conversation within the thread.

    A possible solution to the above if the forums truly become a graveyard would be to create a channel regarding most likely a war in say RON where only the diplomats of the spheres can talk in rapid quips or WoT discussion format, whatever fits them. 

    of course that should be a last resort ^ the forums serve as a great sorter of events and topics and should remain the discussion place regarding wars, treaties & community health checks like this one.

    i've always hated forums for most my career but i see there use and benefit, hope to become a vocal participant now and in the future.

    Non-chaining MDPs, it's been a while and it would take a fairly big shift in thinking from most alliances. Interesting though.

    "would that work? no no, of course not, maybe? errr no, no."

    *Internal Screaming*

    "Duck it."

    I may not be worth much as my booty has depreciated in value, was it ever valued to begin with? oi @Ducc Zucc does this post make my butt look fat?

    anyway ill tell yeah what generic named person @Emperor Adam adam... adam what a stupid ducking name if my mother named myself that i'd be dangling 6 feet high. Anyways i do think alliances could use a little IC RP for spicey interpersonal and thus intra alliance rivalry, like actors on a stage giving a grand dance that dazzels the audience for the members that pay attention, would at least make for a good story.

    "yeah loin fruits, gather round the fire your ole paw has a story about how i burned the blubber of the mighty whales."

    So ill make myself a fursona ... P&Wsona which i never really thought of one / had one, was always the more analytical type given my p&w work has always been internals but it'll be a fun thing to try out, who knows maybe it'll go somewhere for me.

    anyway i suppose ill get thinking, then doing or err typing? in OWF, embassy & your mothers DMs although i doubt your WoT was meant for low ranking individuals and more towards the leadership of the silent & major powers but it'll at least give me a good laugh.

    "It'll just be like creating a DnD Character sheet Sweden, how god damn hard could it be?"

    Sincerely, a soon to be changed ball... i think?
