  1. Expected this a lot sooner, actually, what with Impero's focus being elsewhere and Goldie's level of activity. Decent line-up, there were better. Certainly didn't expect WC to hold Duke position, but I've probably missed out on a lot.
  2. There's also a large number of treaties signed around enemies. A MDP comes with a really solid CB. And sometimes, sitting together with someone telling them how much you hate this other alliance is a bonding moment. So when an alliance's goals are to roll a certain alliance, they'll be angry with people who get in the way of that. Treaties are like marriages - when you treaty someone, you treaty their whole family, regardless of whether it's non-chaining.

    "Weak" CBs

    Lol, I feel like I've gone over this a few times. CBs matter a LOT. Nearly all alliances are chained to both sides of any conflict. A CB determines where they chain onto. Nobody wants to be on the unpopular side of a war. There are plenty of strong CBs, like defense of an ally, defense of a member (who was raided/rogued). You can simply not defend an ally, citing coalition warfare like so many others do. Coalition warfare is a decent CB, and so are pre-emptive strikes. A good reason of most of the pre-war treaty movements is determining where these CBs fall when a weak CB triggers a global
  4. [quote name='EgoFreaky' timestamp='1345145118' post='3022471'] Curious statement.. Please elaborate, what situation was Int put in? - We offered to help out if they decided to help LSF. - We didn't complain about their allies hitting us. - We didn't complain about them hitting our allies. - We didn't request their help, we did however state we understood they wouldn't be able to back us up this war (Even though technically we were at war before any other Int ally (apart from LSF of course). Don't get me wrong, it's not about the cancellation, for me this was inevitable the moment Tr
  5. [quote name='Starfox101' timestamp='1344745910' post='3021075'] Why do you cancel on "great allies"? I hate how fake CN is, sometimes. [/quote] Anyone who knows the VE-GOD relationship knows that they've always been close. "Friendship" doesn't do justice to their relationship, it's more brotherhood. While the treaty might be cut now, the bond goes far deeper than treaty level. Throughout their history, they've sacrificed more infra for each other than most alliances have even gained. This is just one of those cases where friendship and treaties don't align. VE and GOD are both politica
  6. Delta's retirement is not that surprising; he doesn't seem quite that active lately. I've always considered him one of the sharpest minds on the planet. Even though I've never had direct contact with him, it's quite sad to see.
  7. [quote name='Emperor Marx' timestamp='1343088443' post='3013880'] When two wonderful people such as these are fighting each other, it's hard to know who to root for. [/quote] It's easier when there's reps involved. Boo Sword Alliance.
  8. Shouldn't be an issue for new players either, there are warnings plastered in a few places. The confirm button works in a similar manner on other pages, like buying infra, so they should be able to figure it out.
  9. [quote name='Sardonic' timestamp='1341605812' post='3005026'] There are, however, groups so despised that the world allows one of the many spheres of power to roll them. [/quote] Probably closest to the truth. "I want to destroy Hegemony 3 too! But first, we have to destroy Power Cluster C to make sure that they don't become the new hegemony. After destroying power cluster C, power cluster B and D will want to get revenge on us, so you'll have to defend us from them. But don't worry, as long as we're less hated than Power Cluster F2, we'll be safe in case Power Cluster A takes the hegemo
  10. Agreed on most of it, disagree on some points, but I don't really disagree enough to write an essay on it Just wanted to say that you left out the strong "underdog" factor in this game. A lot of people prefer to be on the losing side because there's much more to accomplish; you get a few people who will play any game the hard way once they feel they've won. There's a tendency to self-destroy your alliance once you're at the top because you get bored and want to start over.. I think GOD/SF have gone through that a few years ago, and I'd be surprised if alliances like MK/NG can stand not havin
  11. [quote name='Steve Buscemi' timestamp='1342487584' post='3010967'] It's been awhile since I've seen an alliance get destroyed to this degree. Congrats NoR. 1.3m to .3m is quite an achievement. [/quote] Not sure if sarcastic. Nothing to cheer about an alliance losing to a curbstomp. Oh, of course LSF deserved this. They deserved this years ago with the choices they've made, their general attitude, and the alliances they chose to befriend. But this isn't the way I'd like to see them go. They're just being systematically shot here, without even a DoW. There's no need to rub salt on their
  12. [quote name='Warmongrel' timestamp='1342068107' post='3008892'] So you just armed a nation with 9 million, and you expect another smaller nation to destroy him with only 3 mil? Someone is getting a raw deal here... [/quote] Several nations bigger than that nation can do it. Gang up. Maybe gain some of that 9M as loot. And it'd be fun to pick on someone who does deserve it.
  13. Sounds fun, but they're too small for me.
