    Joint Declaration FTW

    I remember my first ground battle. I'm getting all teary now. (My first five opponents all turtled. Gahhhh.)

    NEW were a warrior alliance. They lived by the sword, they died by it too. They weren't the first to go out the way they did, I doubt they'll be the last either. They weren't keen on surrendering, to say the least. Everyone knew the war against SPaTR - which was brought on by Bones' actions, nobody else - was going to be a very long one, due to the statistics of the nations involved. NEW weren't interested in leaving before the end, but they didn't have the kind of statistics necessary to see it to the end.

    I really had to be dragged into supporting Poseidon. At the time, we had the senate agreement with Valhalla, and I didn't have to deal with Legion at all. I didn't want to have to deal with either Valhalla or Legion any more than I had to. All of my pre-Purplegate friends in Legion had either gone to STA or ODN except for SoL (Seasons of Love) and Hymenbreach, and by the time Poseidon started I think SoL was already in NPO and Hymen had pretty much vanished. Legion-STA relations were close to nil because of the Valhalla-Legion treaty and the Valhalla-STA situation. Purqua would have been better off siding with STA and ODN and forgetting the Poseidon project honestly. At least, our stats would have been. Those wars were pretty fun though weren't they? 😎

    You were completely wrong about Hoo, after WotC he was fine with Polaris, as witnessed by his actions later on when he forced Ragnarok to flipflop and defend Polaris against Pandora's Box. It was me that you had to worry about to be totally honest. I'd been suspicious of the Polars ever since MyWorld protected zzzptm and smuggled him to Nueva Vida, and then after Bipolar that whole relationship was doomed. It wasn't until I left Invicta active government that they started to have Polar ties again. Chefjoe wasn't worse than noWedge. Everything CJ did was IC. There were tensions with STA - and STA was right to criticize him - but it wasn't the relationship drama that noWedge had lived for. BAPS were loyal to mhawk because of his role in ousting noWedge and getting them peace. mhawk liked Valhalla, so they did too. I wonder if NE will see this. Hey @Nobody Expects - any commentary? 😎

    Triyun liked UPN, he wanted to bring you guys on board. I don't know about the diplomats, I spent more time talking to the IOs directly myself during that timeframe, I don't remember who the Legate for Purple was back then. Valhalla really didn't like UPN though, and if they had sway with the Purple Legate that would explain some of that confusion. Valhalla went around telling anyone who would listen that UPN were untrustworthy. Of course, so did Ragnarok and a good portion of NPO's pre-Karma mission plan in FA was to bring Ragnarok on board, so that might well have been a factor too.

    Peace After 924 Days Of War

    Permazi never went out of fashion. It was just renamed, and warchests made it harder to get a single ZI. Speaking of warchests, everyone knew that the SPATR war was going to be a long one from the start. The statistics involved made that a necessity.

    Yeah that's why I'm not criticizing. My casualty figures used to be a lot lower back when I had a lower infra cap, nowadays I actually go past 8K infra after fighting wars, for years I never did. Of course I also have never raided.

    Oh sorry. I guess I'm agreeing with GK then. 😎 I actually have six times GK's casualties, and I'm three times the age. So that's alot closer.

    The Amazing Casualties Race

    The spreadsheet shows SirWilliam both at #50 and at #51. I think something is fishy. 😎

    You're in CLAWS, which is totally the wrong alliance for fighting me, and besides are too small 😎 Besides, haven't I been in an alliance at war with one of yours at some point? The list of alliances I've fought against is so long, surely you were in there somewhere. Most of the plotting and scheming I've seen in my years here has been frankly somewhat comical. While that's not a bad thing, laughing is good for the soul and my soul is now rather glorious, I personally find it quite refreshing to see Canik being honest where people like Grub and Arexes used to prefer inventing crazy theories to justify their behaving in this fashion.

    Those are not bragging numbers, GK. Number of Soldiers Lost: 5,969,295 Attacking + 11,053,999 Defending = 17,023,294 Casualties I mean, I know I'm older than you, but I'm not 26 times your age.

    Why is this exactly? So that there will be fewer wars? HEY WAIT A MINUTE. It's not so much cowardly as it is a reflection of who people like. I mean, I've been on the other side of those overkill declarations, I know what being the underdog is like. I actually prefer it. However, I would still have sided with Canik and the folks at CLAWS over GK, except that there are only two nations in my range and neither have slots. So I guess I'm staying retired for the moment.

    Wolves have Claws too!

    I'm pretty sure they just rushed the announcement because of the war. Also, hi Canik, it's been a while eh?

    Z'ha was largely inactive by the time of Karma. He definitely was part of the old mold of power-tripping goons around NPO at the time, but he's only indirectly a cause of Karma. There are plenty of people still playing this game, I'm even one of them in my way. There obviously aren't as many as there used to be but there's still a core of players. There always were a lot of inactives, and we lost people all the time. I mean, I nearly quit when Skyrim came out, and I'm pretty sure a lot of other people actually quit when that happened. But it's a pretty low-cost game to keep running so I suspect it will be around for a while to come yet.

    Triyun and Vektor knew that there was a storm coming inside Continuum. They wanted NPO to side with Citadel against, well, the Valhalla/TPF branch. That's why they signed the big treaty with MHA. This is especially true for Triyun, note that he went to TOP after the war, which was decidedly not the safe spot to go to after Karma. I'm still not entirely convinced that Vektor wasn't a spy actually. He had formerly been a poster on the LUE boards at GameFAQs. Moo didn't really know what to do, but when bigwoody started running with Blackstone Collusion's bait he was forced to choose between what Dilber and Triyun wanted and the TORN MADP. He went with the treaty. Now if you want to complain of people being dumb, oh man, bigwoody really took the cake. mhawk knew we were going to get razed, but bigwoody was convinced it was going to be an even war. mhawk just thought that if we had waited longer things would have gotten worse. This was probably true... for TPF. I don't know for sure if he realized Triyun wasn't exactly working with the best interests of his alliance at heart, but he'd have to have been pretty dumb to miss hints like the MHA treaty.
