  1. I hear Arizona is beautiful, you should check it out.
  2. Hey, who is that person with the Roman flag as his profile picture? Damn they're good looking.
  3. This is the greatest of all days. I get to march to war with my brothers and sisters under Roma, and best of all, I get to fight alongside @KiWilliam. Roma marches alongside the Legion to war.
  4. I'll be keeping a very close eye on this alliance. You better not screw this up and bring disgrace to the name.
  5. So let's get this straight. Camelot, the rank 7 alliance in Orbis, decided it wanted to attack the entire upper tier of The Lost Empire, the rank 21 alliance in Orbis, for the sake of a treasure from what I have heard? Camelot, the alliance that is known for its excellent decisions, and its superb leadership, has decided to use its 109 members, to attack an alliance with 52 members, for the sake of a treasure that will despawn in what, a month and a half? Camelot, whose colour bloc is Maroon, and gives them $33,994 per turn, and $407,928 per day, wants to go to war over a treasure that will, if I am not mistaken in my math, give them a bonus of 2% in revenue per day? If they get all three, that'll be a whole 3.46% bonus revenue Now I'll admit ladies and gentlemen, I am by no means an expert at maths, but something about this feels like it's not very friendly towards ROI. What do I know though, Camelot has always been known for its great decision making, like when it was a very vocal supporter of IQ, and then tried to switch sides after the war and act like the victim. Camelot has ALWAYS been known for its good decision making, like when it decided uninvited to join Guns and Roses and Duck Hunt for the sake of.... what was the reasoning again Gorge? Preserving the balance of the game? I'm sure it was some great reason and it was worth the 84 billion damage you took in Guns and Roses and 37 billion you took in Duck Hunt. After all, Camelot has ALWAYS been known for its great decisions, like when it funneled massive amounts of cash into both Arthur and Gorge's nations, to build them up. Just taking a quick look at the CTOwned war page, it already seems clear that Arthur, Epi, and Gorge have once AGAIN proved their brilliance, as they've already taken 1.6 billion damage in this war. I'm sure this is going to be over VERY quickly, lads, and this will absolutely end in you making more money off of the 2% to 3% from the treasures than you spent on this war. I once again bow to the brilliance of the leadership of Camelot, you all are truly a shining beacon of excellence in this game.
  6. I was a member of BK's government for that war, much to my continued shame, and even I have no fond memories of that time. I don't think it's a war anyone should look back on with pride and enjoyment, it was a war that began due to selfishness and underhanded maneuvers, and it went on for far longer than it should have been. It caused many people to leave this game, on both sides, and it brought about the death of various alliances. I don't believe there is a single thing about that war that should be remembered fondly.
  7. You don't. You have to wait for them to naturally decrease. Welcome to a global war in Orbis.
  8. As the Imperator of Imperium Romanum, with the blood of Caesar and Augustus running through my veins, I declare that Imperium Romanum, and all true Roman citizens denounce this false Targaryen. We of the Imperium know no Targaryen, save for @Xi Jinping. You may claim the name and the flag of a true Targaryen, but you do not compare to the ally of Rome, and we await the day you and your false house shall be torn from your keeps, and receive justice as usurpers, and thieves. Xi, your allies in Roma stand behind you, as we have for a thousand years. We know the truth in the Eternal City, and we shall not heed the words of these false claimants to the line of Aegon.
  9. Nah, it was the entire game being threatened by Quack that got us rolled in GW16, let's get that straight. As for the rest of them, it's depressing as a former high gov member of tCW to watch the alliance get run into the ground by people's pride and incompetence. I give props when an alliance does well, and when an alliance does a thrice [email protected] nose dive because the leadership doesn't know how to make and or maintain treaties, and it doesn't know how to retain its members, and how to defend its members. You just have to look at the exodus of people fleeing the alliance to see how poorly it is run these days. The current leadership of the alliance likes to put a lot of the blame on previous leaders, but they inherited a strong enough alliance and then ran it right into the dirt. I'm not treating a former GW opponent poorly, I'm pointing out people I served in an alliance with are bloody incompetent and should be ashamed of the way they've handled things. It's easy to mix the two up if you don't pay attention to details though, so I don't blame you.
  10. Whoever did the cover art did an awesome job, so props to them. On the other hand, my condolences to literally everyone involved in this, this can only go great for everyone. Special props to tCW for being able to lose Weebunism due to their own incompetence, and then complaining about how they didn't like being in Swamp and were forced into it, only to then turn around and make another bloc with like, half of the alliances of Swamp and Weebunism. Very original you guys. The tenure of RightHonorable as Prime Minister is truly starting off gloriously.
  11. I look forward to Adam visiting the Saint Denis many times in the months to come, and I look forward to the glorious reign of WANA. A new era is upon us, born out of fire and blood.
  12. On the one hand, I have no idea who any of these alliances are, so I can't really claim to care. On the other hand, as someone playing at being a Roman, seeing a Roman alliance lose and disband does cause me some semblance of sorrow. Ah well, the only thing to do now is to burn more Swamp nations.
  13. *Insert Arthur Morgan last ride gif here*
  14. We keep dragging him back into the spotlight. He's a snake, he needs to stay in the sun to stay alive and warm, if he goes without it for too long, he'll fall into a coma.
  15. No thanks to your father. I see how it is, Koru. My heart weeps, but I'll endure.
  16. Let me begin this by saying I am not the one who has the condition forcing me to walk away. I want people to know that it is not my own health that has led to this decision, but the health of an extremely close relative. With that being said, and with the name of this announcement, it is undoubtedly clear what this is, but I will say it anyway. Earlier today, I received devastating news that a very close relative of mine has been diagnosed with what they believe to be cancer. It is this news that has led to my official resignation from the position of Vice President of Foreign Affairs of the Syndicate, a position I was honoured to share with @Agent W. I would like to thank @Prefonteen @Leopold von [email protected] [email protected]@[email protected] @Lucasand many many more in the Syndicate for seeing some kid who had made mistakes that haunt him in NPO's Last Time, and then made more mistakes in the Commonwealth, and chose to accept him to their alliance. It was a brief period of time that I have spent in the Syndicate, but it has been an amazing time, and I thank each and every one of you, and many many more for giving me the chance to prove myself. I would also like to thank @[email protected]@Yui and many more in the Commonwealth for convincing me to return to this game after NPO's Last Time, when I fully intended on walking away and never again touching this game. I can not tell you all the depths of my gratitude that you allowed me to have a second chance after the mistakes and horrible decisions I made while as a member of the Black Knights. I thank each and every one of you for the friendships you allowed me to make in this second chance, and I thank every person in this game who has treated me with kindness and respect and understanding. Although it pains me to think of those mistakes I made, I know I need to again mention them, because I will not run from or hide from my mistakes. I won't deny the things I did, and I won't pretend the pain I helped cause does not exist. I did serve as a member of the government of the Black Knights for NPO's Last Time, and it was indeed under my tenure as a member of government that the worst atrocity committed in the history of this game occurred. I was willfully ignorant of the cheating that occurred, ignoring those who told me it was occurring. I did not stand against members of government when alliances were killed and nations were forced to quit this game. I stood by while friendships were destroyed, and pain was caused, and while I did not do nothing, I could have done more. I should have done more. I know there are those who can not and will not forgive me for these things, and I understand and accept it whole heartedly. I can say nothing more than this. With every ounce of my being, I am sorry for the things that occurred. My apologies will not take back the things done, it will not change the past, and it will not make the hurt go away. It will not bring back the alliances that died, it will not bring back the nations that were lost, but I need to apologize regardless, because now, at what I believe will be the end of my time in this game, I will not leave without accepting the depths of the pain caused by an alliance I was at one point proud to say I was in the government of. I have nothing more to say, save for this. I pray with all of my heart that this is not the end of my time in Orbis. I pray with every ounce of my being that the news I was given was a mistake, and should it not be a mistake, I will fight with every fiber of my being to do all I can to help my relative recover from their condition. I hope beyond hope that I will continue to play this game for years more to come, but if it should be that this is not the case, then I thank each and every one of you that I have met in this game, for giving me an experience over these three years that I truly believe will stick with me for years to come. Thank you all once again. I love you all. Imperator Tarroc of Imperium Romanum.
  17. Atlan, I didn't see any mention of your one true love, Tarroc in that statement. Didn't you get the memo, every member of TLE's gov is in love with me apparently. All joking aside, I wish you nothing but the best going forward outside of the game. We didn't have a ton of interactions, but from the interactions we did have, I had nothing but good memories of you, and I could tell you were a great person. I hope we can still speak on occasion. Remember, now that you're retired, you get to enjoy the best food and drink, and leave the work for the younglings. Make em earn for their keep, while you enjoy the perks of retirement.
  18. I'm bored and can't be bothered to think about how to do this properly. Best Bromance: Since I don't know anyone else who has a family together, I feel it would be remiss of me to not nominate @Putmir and myself as the best bromance
  19. You know the rules, Fisty. You want an opinion on the forums, you gotta come back to the game. Pantheon may be looking for a new leader. I do have to point out, taking shots at Partisnek isn't a good way to get T$ to protect you again. Just a friendly piece of advice. Jesus, Sphinx, paragraph spacing was invented for a reason, or has the technology not made it that far south yet?
  20. Let the sky be red, and may the ground be ash. Nukes from the first day to the last day. They shall break upon these walls, we've seen it before. Our will is as iron.
  21. Sure, you can get in line. Half a dozen other people in this game do.
  22. Listen here you little bastard. One: Putmir is my wife, no calling my wife your daddy. Two: I married Putmir, I had children with Putmir, only I get to bully that sexy fox.
  23. That's fine, but don't portray it as the treaty was done to help tCW get on its feet. tCW had been through worse and had survived. tCW was on its feet, it was just looking for allies. As we said in the chat itself, tCW was intending on joining Swamp, and that it was a trial period. You and Alexio talked about it needing to be a trial period, and nothing that was said in your screenshot gives any sense of it being a temporary thing to help tCW get on its feet. What Sphinx is talking about is his desire to get rid of TEst as allies, as well as Carthago, and fix internal issues, especially ones that were economic, due to the fact that tCW's economics was in shambles, due in large part to his meddling and interferring in them. Sphinx himself also talked about the fact that tCW was not an alliance that really led blocs. When it was allies with TKR, and Guardian, no one in their right mind thought it was the leader of that bloc. When tCW was with BK, no one thought it was the leader of that bloc. Sphinx said himself, tCW was an economic alliance that did not care to lead blocs and did not really like to fight wars. From the very beginning, the intention from tCW, which we were open and honest about, was not to have a temporary ally to allow us to get back on our feet, our intent was to get entrance to another bloc.
  24. Thanks for @ing me so I could know when you responded. Don't worry though, I'm still here. Let's address a few things here. The first of which is, no, you're not gonna wiggle out of this one. You did indeed caution that that tCW bloc joining Swamp would make it too large, I will confirm this is true, you and the other Swamp reps did do this. That being said, the desire of this was not to get tCW on its feet, Tyrion, I'm not gonna let you try to make that argument. More than a few full on discussions happened as to which tCW allies would be dropped, one of which was TEst, although UPN was also another alliance that was named but Sphinx was oddly defensive of UPN for some reason. Embassies in each of the Swamp alliance discords were created, members of tCW flooded into the embassy and the discord and economic dealings were made. On more than a few occasions, including in the group chat and in your own alliance's embassy, things were referred to as tCW proving itself to Swamp, before being given more full fledged access. TLDR; Size was indeed a concern, although that was something that was settled before the treaties were even signed, don't lie to me Tyrion. As for the concern of Sphinx causing tCW to join Quack, don't give me that shit, Tyrion. As was said on @Thalmor's lovely radio show when Sphinx and I were guest stars, @Scratchy asked both Sphinx and I about tCW and the idea of forming hegemonies, due to tCW's history with Hegemonies (IQ). Both Sphinx and myself said neither of us had any intention of that happening and would refuse to let it happen. I believe my exact words were something along the lines of "If something like that was happening, I would retire and walk away, because I won't be part of that" although someone can go watch the show to figure out what I said exactly. Even if we don't want to take what was said at face value, let's look at the reality of the situation. Sphinx did not like TKR or T$. Sphinx, on multiple occasions, talked about wanting to beat Quack because he thought they were too strong and were bad for the game. Sphinx made no secret that he held a lot of bad blood towards TKR stemming all the way back to Knightfall, as he blamed TKR for forcing tCW to stay in the war for the sake of TKR's pride, and that it cost tCW a number of whales and long time members and friends. Sphinx also made no secret about the fact that he had a strong distaste for The Syndicate and its members. Seeing as Sphinx wanted to retain UPN as a direct ally, do you genuinely believe there was any possibility of @Prefonteen allowing tCW to join Quack? The Snake, with UPN in his bloc? I think the frick not. So Quack is out of the picture as a potential ally if Swamp said no, don't give that bullshit excuse, Tyrion. Now, let's look at the other blocs. There was Rose and Camelot, but again, there was no hiding the fact that Sphinx, and more than a few members of tCW gov had strong distaste for Camelot due to certain members there, so the idea of tCW signing up with Rose and Camelot was, while technically possibly, was honestly less likely than tCW deciding to be a neutral and paperless alliance again. The last major bloc out there was Hedge, and I'm sure we don't need to go into details as to why that was not a viable option, but just to make it clear, bad blood between tCW and Grumpy (I remembered Ronnie) due to fighting in NPO's Last Time, as well as the still lingering matter of Sphinx wanting to fight Children Of The Light over the matter of the return of Odin's safekeeping. Big TLDR: Getting tCW on its feet is a lie, and the idea of signing tCW so it didn't sign with other blocs is a lie, because there were no real other blocs tCW was going to sign with.
  25. So I'm not here to comment about the first half of this post, that's been done to death. I am here, however, to comment about the second half of this post. As someone who was in that chat, Tyrion, that's a bold face lie. I was in this chat from the beginning of it, and I left when I left The Commonwealth. I was vocal in that chat, I was very active in that chat, and I read all of the messages of that chat. I was there, as I was serving as the head of Foreign Affairs. at no point whatsoever was it ever said the treaty was to help TCW get back on its feet. As someone who was there, what was said was that it was a trial period. It was said that that level of the treaty was while tCW proved itself and addressed the concerns about Swamp. It was specifically said that when those concerns were addressed, TCW would address more fully and completely joining Swamp. It was not given access to the coalition servers. It was not allowed to vote on things as a full-fledged member of swamp. It was however said that it would be allowed to be vocal on its opinion on things. At no point whatsoever was it said that this treaty was to help the Commonwealth get back on its feet. You can have whatever reasons you want for fighting this war, but as someone who was in the chat, don't expect me to sit here and let you lie about what was said in that chat, and what the purpose of it was.
