Apologies for my late response.
As I pointed out in SUN's meme channel, ripplenation has been kicked from FTW. You underlined his nation information but did not show that he has been in war mode since 6/28/2019. He does not have any wonders, infra, or tech. We flood our low tier nations with aid. We want them to grow as much as possible, as fast as possible. He has been going into inactivity, coming back after several weeks, doing nothing once he returns, and then going back into inactivity. This has been going for several months. I admit, the reason he hadn't kicked before what because I was holding out hope that when he did come back, that he would engage and be a productful member of FTW. In the picture above, you can see that he had been with us for well over a year. It is players like this that are bringing CN down. If we had active players, CN might be a thriving game again.
Which leads me to my next point. The fact that people are leaving this game faster than people are joining is really telling. One reason is because of the roguish behavior of Non Grata. Or Cobra coalition attacking a small alliance until they give in and sign a MDP. FTW wants CN to become a thriving community again just as much as you. I wish we could have the numbers that we had 10 years ago. But we don't. We have to make due with what we have.
As to the peace talks, I don't speak for FTW as a whole. That would be Canik, Taco, and TDLS's department. I am only giving my personal opinion.
