I want to know what your motivation is. What is your motivation to do what you do, if there is any motivation beyond pure and simple entertainment? What motivates you to continue doing what you're doing?
Do we even have any motivation beyond pure and simple fun? Fun comes in a variety of different flavours, but so long as we're not malicious with our behaviour and with our motives, then is there really anything to get bent out of shape about during war, peace, rogue attacks, or vast amounts of boredom?
If we're all so bored all the time, why don't we declare wars more often? Why don't we have ideological wars, where we declare upon someone, for fun mind you, not because we want to see them utterly destroyed, not because it will be an easy victory for us, but because they happen to be ideologically opposite to you? I know nordreich used to do this, but their motivation was destruction, or so it seemed at the time. Why can't we have a war of words, as silly as it may be, between an alliance based upon the star trek universe and one based upon the star wars universe? Why are all the wars we fight, in between months and months of "boredom" and simply collecting taxes and paying bills and doing the odd tech deal, wars that need to have some arbitrarily valid CB? If we want war, why must we wait for a reason that most people will think is !@#$%^&* anyway and not worth going to war over?
Why doesn't Sparta declare on Athens in the name of history? Could be for only a week or two, where the victor would be anyone who did their alliance proud.
It's just an idea. If we're all so bored most of the time, why do we have to wait so long to declare war where if two alliances wanted, they could discuss terms of the war before hand and declare on each other at a certain date, say a week from the day they agree, to give both sides time to make propaganda and compose OWF speeches?
Give it a thought. We don't need coalitions to create our own fun twice a year.
