I'm late here but that shouldn't come as a surprise given that I only got around to my holiday thank yous last night. :3
Despite the fact that Kashmir was smaller than just about all other parties involved in the ongoing war, and despite the fact that we warranted the focus of an alliance several times our size (while we were focusing our own efforts on another alliance a few times our size), we finished the war with a 1.64:1 damage inflicted:damage sustained ratio (as well as the 25th most damage inflicted out of 71 alliances involved). That follows an initial blitz where we tallied a 10:1 ratio out of the gates with 76 wars declared. Ultimately we were found at one point to have the 9th most efficient war effort by Unknown Smurf’s calculations. Forgive the boasting but in a world where it’s too easy to ignore or marginalize micros $%&@ being humble, you \m/embers did one hell of a job and you should all be proud.
Credit though where credit is due, we wouldn’t be where we are today without our fabulous allies and friends. tJL has had our backs for as long as I care to remember, this war being no exception. They were there for us and with us every step of the way this war and for that I am grateful. We may not enjoy the same type of relationship with AI but you all have been great as well and I look forward to getting closer to you in the coming months. SRA was fabulous in providing us support on The Legion when they too had no obligation to. They bent over backwards for us numerous times, without solicitation, and that we appreciate. NSO has been in our corner seemingly from our inception and this war they demonstrated just that. This despite the fact they were already actively engaging another combatant. Much love, NSO. It would be remiss of me not to mention PPO and Kaskus, you two indirectly provided us crucial relief. Props!
I should probably thank PSpiz and Fen Dorbek of SUN and killer04 of The Legion, as well as KingWilliam of Invicta, for their efforts in securing peace and for being reasonable throughout the process. Unfortunately the only enemy combatant shout-outs I have are for Thrash and a SUN member whose name I don’t remember. It was nice the little bit of chatting we did. Kudos on a fun fight (blast your EMPs however).
Which brings me to the apology. SRA/Kaskus: In hindsight I should have anticipated the reaction the manner in which I announced peace in the Disorder War would generate. In additional hindsight you’re both comprised of swell dudes (SRA especially, I couldn’t be any happier at how we’ve mended bridges and stand at each other’s sides) and neither of you really deserved the resultant consternation. My apologies.
tl;dr: Thank you \m/embers, thank you allies, and thank you former foes.
