Who here has a grudge? Come on, be honest. You know you have at least one you've developed in this game at some point. Even a minor one, something you've stuffed in the deep recesses of your subconscious never to see the light of day.
I know I have grudges and I know a lot of other people who do as well. However, something I realized (not just acknowledged or accepted as the norm, but realized) the other day in a discussion with a few friends of mine is not only the prevalence of, but the unending cycle of, grudges in this game. As long as I can remember, my involvement with Digiterran politics has involved my trying to untangle who has a grudge with who or why X and Y alliance refuse to play nicely together.
One friend of mine framed it particularly well: an endless cycle of revanchism, one which constantly renews the planet and motivates a new generation of political intrigue and, eventually, conflict. I agree with his assessment, but I am interested to see how everybody else sees it.
So, I am interested in hearing from you. What do you think of this statement? Do you hold a grudge? Has it influenced your decision-making?
Keep it civil -- this is not a place to pursue a grudge, just to elucidate upon the prevalence of them.
