    Yep, I agree with all that, especially Purqua coming down on STA & ODN's side. Although, not for our stats, I just liked STA & ODN more than Valhalla

    Of course Hoo was friends with Polaris after WoTC but this all happened before that. Still, you could well be right. I knew about your feelings about Polaris although to be fair you weren't on your own. That was the story of CDT though, we were all pulling in different directions. We kept it together until the BiPolar war just blew a hole and very publicly exposed the divisions for everyone to see. I didn't like noWedge because of the OOC relationship crap like everyone else, I didn't like Chefjoe because he was trying to dominate the Purple sphere, the 2nd affected me

    Yep, Triyun was always friendly and I genuinely like him back, but it didn't seem like he was in charge. To be fair he didn't give us the impression he thought he was either. Valhalla obviously didn't trust me and they were right to, because I was working against them. Nearly had them too, but Dawny screwed that up. There was a window, when they finally listened to reason and kicked NoWedge out, that I legitimately gave them a chance to show they'd changed, but Chefjoe proved worse, a different kind of awful and I spent the better part of a year trying to show the rest of the Purp

    Interesting reading. NPO's pre-Karma foreign affairs department was terrible, a combination of paranoia in which we found out 2nd hand from others that we weren't to be trusted and incompetance in getting assigned a different diplomat each week who knew progressively less than the last. I wouldn't have minded except that my prefered position was to have no relationship with them at all, in the full-awareness that we were going to be on the same side anyway via Purqua, but the message we were getting from our allies was that NPO was uncomfortable with "friend of a friend" situations and wanted

    Talking about DE. What did you really think about Watling Street Compact?

    "UPN supported DE's entry into CDT, for reasons I have still never been able to figure out, and I hated them" I was firm friends with them, especially the boys from Element. Also remember that in previous guises they had already been long-standing CDT members as HoG and BDC. Finally, I trusted Coolgreen, to keep them on the straight and narrow, as he was good leader. BAPS wasn't a consideration because I knew that push come to shove they would have picked Valhalla over either of us anyway so I didn't bother with them.

    Interesting viewpoints. We used to talk to Dawny, Jorost and others more than yourself so we got a very different perspective of events in Invicta, but it certainly is interesting to hear it from your end. Although I must admit the notion of us allowing Stickmen into PEACE makes me chuckle.

    Kae joined UPN because she realised Invicta were never going to join the C&G side and didn't know enough about UPN to realise we weren't going to either. A lot of it had to do with us leaving Poseidon, which wasn't a political move, but a we hate everything Poseidon stood for move *. She basically got the wrong idea of our motives and left in a huff over a miscommunication in CDT about where we were going next. * Valhalla saw that other Continuum allies had their own "subject blocs" and wanted their own. We should never have joined

    Hi Haflinger. Long time no see. It all feels like an age ago. I really loved Invicta, enough to turn down Dawny's suggestion of merging into UPN because I thought you all deserved more. We had great times, especially when we were pariahs post-Karma. They were the best times.
  10. Very nearly 9 years ago a small group of friends sat drinking in a pub called the Pit and Pendulum talking about what to do with this game called Cybernations they’d discovered. The sensible thing to do would have been to join an established alliance, not least so we could have discovered what the hell we were meant to do, but we were too stubborn for that. So armed with a flag knocked up on google paint, a invision-free forum in lurid shades of lilac and lavender and bags full of enthusiasm, that only newness and novelty can bring, we set out to create our vision of the perfect Purple allian
  11. Exactly. Most mergers are doomed to failure because of incompatability and SNX definitely ws, it's not like we haven't been here before. Shame, I mostly liked the alliances that made it up.
  12. Your alliance structure is more reminiscent to me of social anarchism than libertarianism, but it wouldn't be very liberal of us to give you a hard time over that :P Good luck
  13. 9 vs 4 and we're still winning 0 Anarchies vs 5. Thanks for the tech :P
  14. Welcome back. How much do you know about what happened to GGA since you left it? :P Congratulations to GATO for your new government line-up
  15. Wow, long time no see and after all these years I'm glad you still remember us, even if it's only for infamy. We're basically retired ourselves, so don't hold anything I say against current UPN, which is an entirely new animal, far more professional and competant than I ever was. (If you're curious check us out, you joining UPN would surely set tongues wagging for months) ;) It came down to this, if you were ever curious, I really didn't like superfriends and had ambitions to set up CDT as a rival bloc, partly because I thought giving focus to CDT was what it needed and partly because
  16. I think they're a lot more factors at play than that including political philosophy, loyalty (to a wide variety of concepts, such as personal friendships, alliances, concepts, principles, spheres etc.), revenge, pixel-building and others
  17. 1. They can't 2. 1 Soldier and 1 Unit of Technology. You've got a funny idea of grandstanding.
  18. Whatever. You don't impress me with your stats and grandstanding.
  19. You're overthinking this. Apologies to Legion, for the thread steal. Congrats on a hard-fought war!
  20. Might have something to do with being allied to TOP, but not Legion.
  21. Jan 2007, a month in which in a different world Steve Jobs announced the release of the 1st Generation IPhone, Bulgaria and Romania joined the EU and I recoiled in horror about how bad Epic Movie was :P In this, far more sane world, however, UPN was born and it was a complete and utter pleasure from day 1. Seven years of really happy memories being part of a community that is frankly the sole reason that I still keep going after such a long time.
  22. I'll bite, although to be fair a lot of what you say I agree with Democratic Liberalism, "Doom Politics" At heart these amount to the same. i.e. Elitists, which function due to high levels of activity. What separates them from "aged democracies" is that they're smaller and therefore %-wise have more people that take an active interest in the running of the alliance. Lulz Successful "Lulz" has never (imo) really been Lulz at all, but just another smokescreen for self-interest, in a similar manner to what you'd find in most alliances. At most, it's only ever been a way of exiting the game, d
