My opinion on the conflict

Never in history have so many been attempting to start a war with one alliance as has the large group of antagonistic alliances tried to provoke Polar into war this past fall. First it was the NG strike on UPN seeking not only exorbitant reps, but also seeking to activate UPN's treaty with NpO to lure them out into an unwinnable war. Because UPN didn't call them in, they survived. Then the provocation of the Legion and attempts by many to set up a treaty chaining situation from which Polar would have no escape. This failed when it turned into a cold war.

Finally, TOP and IRON just came out and did it, they declared on the NpO for past grudges. I don't think there's a statute of limitations on grudges and that both were well within their right to do so, however, it was an inelegant and sloppy conclusion to a long series of antagonistic moves preceding it.

So now the world gets its Polar stomp, and while the war may grow in size and involve many major alliances, there is no competing philosophy, no huge controversy, and no reason for those outside the conflict to particularly care or take sides. This makes it one of the largest pointless wars in CN history, and I'm somewhat saddened as to how little a giant war can actually mean in the grand scheme of things.

I am currently in no alliance, and as I have said, I have leanings towards Polar just based on past feelings in comparison to IRON and TOP. Even so, I can't bring myself to become invested in the conflict one way or another. Nobody is taking a strong stand for anything, it's just a grudge match that everyone is playing up and trying to join in due to sheer boredom. I really hope we get another decent war before the year is out to complete our normal cycle and provide the community with a refreshing influx of thought provoking discussion so we can forget this mess and move on.

I dont normaly reply to things on the fourm here. I seem compelled to agree that boardom may be the cause for most of the conflick. But hay if the world of Bob were to wait for an important thing to happen most of us would never see a big war. HAHAHA!

So scense were all dressed up and having fun let this war last a while and may all involved have a great time.

When it comes right to it why should anyone realy need a reason to play a war game but to pin yourself aginst another to see how you do.

o/ to all involved and o/ to some kinda of debate as well hahahaha!

If past wars were so great and though-provoking, how come so many left afterwards? Probably because they knew it would be another 2 years before a good war, and even longer had TOP/IRON not attacked.

This war means a different things to a lot of different alliances & individual people, just because there is not a particular moralistic (forced/faked) dilemma doesn't mean the impact won't be significant and that the war is entirely meaningless.

There is at least one precedent this war is setting; betrayal is not acceptable. Don't screw the people trying to help you. Especially if it's TOP.

Not the way i remember it Canik but then betraying UPN (your then allies) was acceptable i suppose. TOP does nothing except for it's own benefit. I hope your don't have to relay on TOP to help you out in the future when it doesn't suit their game plan
