Here we sit, yet again. Waiting for the next controversial CB that 3/4 of both sides will think is absolute BS but will cite "obligations" as a reason to join the winning side (and lets be honest, there will be plenty of treaty conflicts, hence the winning side CAN be legitimately picked by anyone.)
Whoever started this nonsense of needing a "valid CB" to advance the political game here on Planet Bob should be stabbed in the face repeatedly. Its a broken, boring system. Yet here we all sit, playing by the broken, boring system, with nobody willing to act on their general dislike of the people and leaders in other alliances, because it is not "politically expedient." When a war does break out , some alliances will opt out, citing treaty conflicts(basically saying that this is not a smart political move for us at the time) and will be labeled as cowards, even though all of us (myself included)... sit here with our hands tied waiting...endlessly. We are all cowards, we are all hypocrites. Planet Bob is dying, it is our fault, and there are actually still enough egos out there within certain areas to think that the game is doing just fine. Shame on us all.
