  1. Dang guys. I didn’t expect so much of y’all to come out here and say things. Thank you so much, giving me the feels. love and appreciate y’all.
  2. I'm not sure if saying goodbye here is even something people do or respect, but I feel that maybe this is how I obtain the necessary closure needed to finally walk away. Anyway... I am stepping away from Politics & War after years of game time. My time in Politics & War has been filled with tremendous ups and historical downs, but along that ride I've met some pretty awesome people, learned a lot about myself, and made lifelong friends. In fact, if it wasn't for Politics & War and my need to make things look awesome aesthetically and operate off-site pages, I wouldn't have the technical advantage I have today to start my own business or maintain a position/get promoted in my RL career. I've grown tremendously from where I was when I first put feet down on this world. I was an immature !@#$, made emotional decisions, and pissed a lot of people off. I've made my share of alliances (I think publicly the number is 89-100 now? lol) I could write a book on my life here but in reality only created a handful of fun places with some great friends and had a heck of a time doing it. My last project here was creating Atlas Technologies with some of the closer buds. Developing a system that allows for change, growth, and expansion. I stepped down as Chairman months ago, and that community is still thriving. I told people before that Atlas would be where I hang my hat and although I've had urge, offers, and ideas - I must stick by my word. RL is calling. I've just opened up my small business, I've got work going on there. I am migrating to a new career which is somewhat of a dream job and a total life changer. I also want to get into a few other things in multimedia with friends from PW and RL to just have some fun times, kick back, and chill. Devoting time to this game just doesn't fit within that schedule anymore. I guess I'll do some shout outs. There is no fricking way that I'll be able to name everyone, but if I miss someone that I've engaged with on a higher level, I apologize in advance. @Prefontaine the OG. One of the first guys I met when I joined years ago, who would have known that we lived in the same city and interacted through our careers? You've been solid to me throughout the years, I appreciate that. @Alex put a lot of trust in me to do admin/moderation things. From graphic work, forum moderation, SK moderation when that was a thing, and the design team. I know I'm not the most fun to work with especially when I'm passionate about making things better and more efficient, so thanks for dealing with my complaints and bullshit. You've helped me with RL as well as here and I thank you for that. If you're ever looking to get some staff, hit me up. @caanite/thewitchking/idk what name you go by now - (if y'all know who I'm talking about, tag him in this thread). Basically the best friend throughout the years, endless conversations IC/OOC and just a stellar sidekick to have around. If anyone dealt with my bullshit the most it would be you. We have grown apart in the last few years which fricking sucks, but just wanted you to know that I cherish our memories and you're someone I won't forget. @Tali you fit right into the Caanite category. Part of the ancient friend circle AND you're still sliding in my dms and in Atlas with me. We'll stay friends because that is just how we are, but you're awesome. We give each other that solid RL advice all the time and life wouldn't be the same without it. @Charlie Traveler @Kevanovia @Pika y'all are grouped together because I think we all met each other around the same time. Charlie, I miss you, wtf man. Kev, we still talk so I'm not worried about stepping away. Pika - ain't no way you're getting out of my life. Y'all come down to my state of residence and we'll get some beers. Thanks for a great friendship, relationship advice, jokes, and just being the true true. @Jordan we got along really fast, I'd trust you with my puppy and that says a lot. You're genuine, honest, and fun even if you are a little soft haha. I don't think we'll stop talking outside of PW we got that snapchat level of friendship. hah you're the best and I'm proud of how far you have come. I think that is where I'll end the shout outs - I definitely know I'm missing someone or a group of people and like I said no hard feelings. For those of you who clearly don't like me all I can say is, it sucks to suck - but seriously, you probably took this game too seriously for me to actually respect you on any type of level to be cool with you and for that, I'm sorry. Will I be back? I hope not. Everyone gets those itches once in a while though - maybe I'll return under some other name, maybe I'll be one of the lucky ones and stay away forever. I will not be going into VM and will be deleting entirely. If you'd like to keep in contact, I'm down. I'm still in the PW server/AtlasTek server shoot me a dm. Thanks again everyone, y'all be safe and nice to each other.
  3. On March 5th a small group of regular peoples decided to branch off and create Atlas Technologies with Jordan, Tiberius, and Myself as the original leaders within the alliance. Since then, we have created a pretty damn awesome community - developed a leadership team to help out new players to the game and keep the engines running - saw a new Chairman take hold of the direction of the alliance, and participated in our first war. Our community members worked to build our image through numerous graphic design advertisements, in-house engineering to create user management systems and our own Atlas discord bot, and even an ecommerce branch to provide merch to our members. We've pushed ourselves on social media to get more people to the game and possibly to our community, been featured numerous times on the PW socials & even on the new PW App! But we couldn't have done that all in a year without our friends, family, and our kick ass members! Happy Birthday Atlas!
  4. Being old and stuck playing this game gets you to a useless rep number.
  5. @Jordan is Varys bc he's soft.
  6. I was expecting worse - but now I'm going to use that as my nation anthem.
  7. I didn’t know him - but on behalf of the Atlas Community, our condolences for your friend and family member.
  8. I think you've inhaled too many missile fumes my friend. NO,ur iq
  9. You mistake my post for my own actual opinion - Im just posting the current argument. I could care less who is pointing fingers at who - liike micchan said people think they can actually win this game. No matter which way you put it, say it, throw it, kick it - the spherical politics, hegemony finger wagging and pointing, will always be here. no, ur IQ
  10. Generally that never happens here. If one party is being accused of something they will deny it while the other party continued to press the narrative. Here we have a large sphere being accused to be hegemony and a threat to the world. They don’t think they are and have actively campaigned against it. The other side was thrown under the bus for planning an offensive attack. You’re saying a VIP knew nothing. do you see the patterns yet? Have you looked back at previous wars? this war will continue on with T$ lessening the charge of that sphere - they will likely begrudgingly hold out longer than needed before trying to make peace but not before claiming the other side is IQ. (Just thoughts) and then we will all peace bc nobody wants to be IQ.
  11. Eh. Who's to say that military leader isn't just saying that to push their own narrative that they weren't going to attack? People aren't so innocent here as you may *want* to think. Even if it is true - the idea that there would be a possible offensive attack is enough (in my book) to build up and preempt that possible offensive. So, with logs provided, that is the only motivation really needed to get the soldiers lined up. If you truly are new to the game - I'd suggest reading back on the wiki of the few past wars. Many start with logs, regardless of who these people talked to OR what people say on either side, each side will always have their narrative. That narrative is accepted or rejected by whoever wants to accept or reject. Your argument - that there were less ore more people in the know, really doesn't matter at all to the grand scheme of things. Even if you took this at face value SOLELY you have logs identifying plans to offensively strike a sphere. That sphere was threatened and preempted. Another sphere jumped in with their CB that aligns with what the logs say. Its basic. Coming on here doing what you're doing isn't bad, it sometimes broadens the story which is awesome. When I write articles, getting people's story is the main part of the job - but not providing more background makes what you're saying fall negatively or flat, generally for both sides of the argument. If you got logs of your own, post them up and spice up the narratives!
  12. I saw you comment on the Atlas Wire article about this - the screenshot of Boyce was in there, used from a public forum. I'm quite sure this is just a way to rile people up and the amount of large words people are using in this thread has given me the spins. - but if you aren't just trolling to make people upset - play the game a bit longer and actually see how these wars happen, leaks, rumors, and all the BS that sits between. This war might not be cut and dry to some - but you're seriously looking at the arming up of a group, while logs from another group are leaked with specific words adding up to an offensive attack on a force they were threatened by. The illusions that people talked to other people - I don't really see where that plays a part or why it would even matter if other people talked to other people. I don't think there is any major leader in this game that doesn't run scenarios like this with their inner circles - when you're on top you're a target and that cycle continues every war, this one isn't any different.
  13. These are just a few Atlas Technologies internal propaganda pieces that I whipped up a bit ago. We have our own little propaganda section going on. Don't forget to check out Atlas Wire's coverage on GW16: https://atlaswire.net/crushing-global-war-16/
