  1. Doubt it's a bug, just seems like you have crummy luck. Mods, like this game, are inactive, so don't go holding your breathe for a response one way or the other.
  2. Sucks but them's the breaks unfortunately. I see you have open slots, feel free to hit me up for 9/100 deals.
  3. How do I access the Signature text box?... All I see is the About Me text box when editing my profile...
  4. I'm about to post kind of a lot of words but paradoxically I can't be arsed to search for the few posts I'll be addressing so I'll just lump it all in here. OMG your warchests. We hear it every war, from multiple parties on both sides. For every SirWilliam that doesn't practice what he preaches there's a Lex Quintus and masterhakai that are sitting on billions. The same can be said of every other alliance involved. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It's hard to be horribly motivated these days since there aren't really villains anymore. Insofar as I can tell both the Legion and FTW have been pretty honorable this war. I can't say I'm terribly thrilled about how things have developed (and now that I'm not government I have more freedom to say so!), but it is what it is. I had been discussing a purge as a result of certain actions over the course of the last two wars the KashBRA :airquote: sphere :airquote: was involved in; perhaps the result here will be the same. Either way, I'll continue to enjoy semi-retirement. Kashmir is in good hands and we'll all be just fine. PS: Jack Layton is back, may Admin have mercy on you all.
  5. I've edited my profile so it reads Retired King of Kashmir but my posts still show King of Kashmir...
  6. Listening to the Moana soundtrack and it reminds me of just how soft The Legion is. Thanks for ruining my favorite Disney movie.
  7. That's some impressive hyperbole there. Kudos, Mr. Canik.
  8. Our King has posted this DoW.
  9. Three :airquote: powers :airquote:. lol
  10. Beginning to dwindle? This game has been on the tail end of its downward spiral for quite some time now. Admin really screwed the pooch on making this game into something and keeping it that way, but I'm sure he's well aware of that fact (and for that matter that he cares little, which is of course his prerogative). There's a small minority of players that still care about this game and would work to make it worthwhile again but even if we were far more numerous in number I'm not sure it'd work without game staff being of like mind and for that matter it'd likely be too little, too late. Not sure how much longer we have with this game but I have a hard time wrapping my mind around Admin pulling the plug (simply for the fact that it's been around so long). We'll see!
  11. Kashmir is a neutral. LH surrendered to Kashmir. Therefore LH surrendered to a neutral. :lol1:

  12. Answer is it's been less than five years? I guess I was a bit off after all.
  13. First off, to those of you amongst the peanut gallery that are tired of micro drama or that are ROFLing about this one in particular, please accept my sincerest apologies. I realize how terribly engrossing your lives are, what with your treaty announcements, milestones, and infra-hugging in preparation for your once-a-year war. If only we ALL embraced the status quo perhaps this world would be at a mere 6000 nations. Think of how fun it would be then! Alas, our unwillingness to simply exist means we find ourselves at war from time to time. And what an interesting little war we've found if for no other reason than neither side is budging. Uninvolved parties are rife with misconceptions, from the mild ("Both sides are saying they're winning!") to the wild ("They want wonder decommissioning!"). That's to be expected. What's surprising is when the other combatants themselves, either due to lack of communication or willful misrepresentation, seem to be equally clueless. Apparently an education is in order. To understand why Kashmir is unrelenting one must first understand why we went to war in the first place. Kashmir, you see, believes in the value of punitive actions. We generally go to war because we feel wronged and because we feel someone must pay for their misgivings. We do not go to war seeking empty apologies, reparations, or anything equally trivial or meaningless. In this case we went to war with Monsters Inc because of the sum of hostile, reckless actions that weathered the patience of members and friends alike and culminated in them hitting our close allies in SRA. Elsewhere, I eventually gave the greenlight on Limitless Nexus because Methrage was spreading screenshots from our private forums. That comes with the territory to an extent - we're an open, transparent alliance after all - but if you're going to actively work against us more likely than not you're going to get more than you bargained for. Ultimately, how does one judge when a punitive action has been successfully carried out? Sure, MInc and LN are a fraction of their former sizes (the former is 16.4% the size they were a month ago and the latter 38.4%), and sure, all but a single member in their ranks - Jonesing - is broke and/or relying entirely on aid to subsist (the number of financially capable nations triples if you include CA, who Kashmir is not presently at war with). The enemy seems to think that their out-of-context damage ratio - a whopping 1.08:1 in their favor (which amounts to 7% more damage inflicted) - trumpets winning conditions. Clearly, as subjective of a concept as winning is in this game, the Limitless Coalition is anything but. Truth be told, I'm perhaps a bigger white peace proponent than most. If the enemy admitted it's defeated then perhaps we would be more amenable. If the enemy though won't make such an admission then our work clearly isn't done. That these bruised and battered micros are promising perma-war is ultimately inconsequential. It is what it is. This is why we fight.
  14. How come you ignored my last PM?
  15. 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.
