It is interesting when you think about it, LUE has never been able to win a planned war. Go back to the First Great War. Following a LUEicide it looked pretty grim for LUE. Various alliances were moving to cancel treaties with LUE and it looked like LUE would be left pretty much isolated diplomatically and then crushed by the NPO. Luckily for LUE, Tygaland lost his head and declared war prior to treaties expiring, thus ensuring some of LUE’s MDPs still kicked in and the defeat of the Orders.
