I agree with your assessment, and that without some kind of breakup in Occulus any attempts to start something interesting will fail to be interesting. But I'll still give him credit for having the desire at least.
Quite funny to see NPO supporting attacking an alliance twice in 6 months after all their hand ringing over the years about people not letting go of grudges against them and attacking them more than once.
When ever you thought this world couldn't get any dumber, people start bringing conflicts from other worlds into this one.
It's sad to see people/alliances I have some respect for engaging in this garbage.
