No, tanking someone's color is definitely an act of economic warfare. As much as I'd love to stir the crap, Epi is right here.

This could be the first color war in 6 years! Interesting. Personally, I think the color bonus is pretty marginal and poorly implemented. I mean, if 20 Grumpys joined maroon, that would also tank the color bonus :P I'd say the claim that Clover is violating the NAP by marginally reducing color income is a bit flimsy. But then I also think NAPs are generally a poor idea - we had years of conflict where people didn't jump a recovering alliance, without the need for them - and it's too long in any case. So I wouldn't have any qualms, personally, if Camelot 'violated' it in this instance.

If we are going to be stuck with these as a common feature of peace terms (please god no), though, this and the recent drama between TCW/CoTL suggest we might want to better define what, if any, legitimate grounds there are to break it. Or to consider it void between parties.

Clover isn't even part of the NAP pretty sure.

Nice terminology. Very remniscent of certain archaic political schools of thought.

IDK bro, from how I remember last war, it was as easy as reporting leadership for cheating to kill alliances and their allies. Which people nowadays can get immunity for apparently. Have you tried cheating and asking for immunity Eumir?

I mean, the whole point of the color mechanics, however poorly implemented, was to add another axis of politics. I can't really fault them for trying, especially when other alliances also act to defend their colors to varying degrees. Whether they went about it a good or blusterous way, idk, I skimmed the screens so I can't speak to their tone.
