On the 23rd, one of our long-time members, OrangeAvenger decided he had gotten bored of planet Bob and was going to go out with a bang. He decided to rogue as his means of escape. Naturally he decided to nuke Sardonic (who wouldn't?) but he also chose two other targets: Schattenmann and HeroofTime. Can't say he has bad taste.
If I may sidetrack for a moment, I want to briefly explain the point of this blog. In the past, GOONs has gotten a lot of flak for "calling in allies" or "not being able to fight for ourselves" or "not interpreting screaming cries as meaning no, please, stop it." The thing is, we rarely "call" for allies or ask for help, if ever. It just happens that way. But we constantly get made fun of for it. Regardless of the facts.
* When Roguefest happened and PC/iFOK (before they were NG) decided to chip in, we were insulted for not being able to fight our own battles.
* When the 7th largest nation in the entire game attacked Umar (after he was exposed for aiding Methrage) and some of our allies in Umbrella retaliated because we simply don't have any nations in that range, we were called cowards.
* When Timeline went rogue and FOK declared a couple wars on him because he was finally open season, we were made fun of for being too afraid to fight him ourselves. Even though we never asked for help.
And of course, people are always quick to criticize how we roll as Doomhouse and not individually. As if we should not have allies, or get help from anyone else. Or even just let them chip in if they want to. We always have to handle our own situations. I would post 117 more examples, but I don't have as much free time as Schattenmann.
Now, OrangeAvenger is unfortunately gone. I'm not totally clear on the details, but he sent out aid and then did something to cause his nation to vanish forever. That means we can't simply go look at his nation and find out what all went down that day. Fortunately, I had the foresight to take a screenshot.
Applying the same logic as everyone always applies to us, I am forced to conclude:
A single goon nation is too much for UE and CoJ to handle with all of their combined forces. They had to call in allies to help. They are weak and cowardly; unwilling to fight the war themselves, or at very least unable to. It's amazing how much they struggled against the might of a single goon nation, and how quickly they ran fleeing to their friends to back them up. Poor show, UE/CoJ. In a mere 3 hours, you had already surrendered and fled to get help from TPF.
I think this is how it works, anyway. Let's find out.
