  1. This is not the peace announcement you were looking for, but it's the one you've got now. TL;DW: CCC has ended its PZI sentence on Kapleo, and both CCC and NG have agreed to peace with Kap and UFP as his sponsor, along with the terms below:
  2. Everyone complains about everything. Some people were complaining about the very fair and harmless non-war between DS and Kashmir for not expanding enough lol. We're all old and want things to happen, but not in a way that isn't ideal to our specific causes, so we do what all old people do: we complain. Not sure why anyone cares about the complaining, much less why so many people - especially those in leadership of bigger alliances - seemingly do things based on what other people might or might not complain about.
  3. Everyone is decrying the fact that it feels like you can't attack anyone without half the alliances in the game coming back at you in "defense" due to them having 20-odd treaties. It's actually a bit ironic that in your quest to fight back against the practice of raiding, you've proven why the treaty web has all but killed it on its own by getting steamrolled over such a small aggressive war you've waged. So, yes, unfortunately you probably should've just treatied every unaligned nation that you intend to protect. This world has never rewarded moralism, and it certainly isn't going to start now.
  4. Kashmir is getting worse than UFP with all these announcements. Also nice.
  5. There's a certain gravitas to this post but I can't put my finger on what exactly it is. Anyway congrats on the promotion! 2021 seems to be a good year for leadership changes... 🤔
  6. This sounds nice but is not necessarily true. Pacifism does not have to be absolutist; as long as someone generally believes that human (or, I guess in CN terms, nation) conflict should be resolved peacefully rather than with aggression, then it's fair to label them a pacifist. Of course, doing nothing because you've long since stopped caring about this world is not pacifism, but is arguably wasteful enough to be worthy of the label as a sort of slur anyway.
  7. That would actually make an incredible flag. Embrace the treaty cluster. Anyway, carry on my wonderful allies. Tick tock.
  8. Boy, it's really getting serious now. Not sure how you all are ever going to come to peace terms after the level of aggression that I've just seen here.
  9. I am extremely upset with NG for not handling this very serious situation with the gravity that it deserves. I have already muted one of their upper gov in our server as consequence, and rest assured that if they retaliate in any way at all, war will certainly break out between the two of us. I am being completely serious, guys.
  10. Not exactly the most original alliance theme in the world lol. Oh well, anything that shakes things up a bit is ok by me, so I wish you all the best of luck.
  11. Good man, don't cave to the peer pressure from dastardly NG. If you don't want to buy DRAs for all your nations then you don't have to!
  12. I honestly would be interested to see how Tev's thoughts have evolved on this topic in the year-and-a-half since he started this series. A lot of the criticisms surely have only been proven true: Oculus continues control, Cobrasphere basically imploded at least in small part because it couldn't escape its own chaotic energy. However, I think it could be argued that some others may have been either misguided or simply acted on: there were major shakeups in leadership both in RFI and elsewhere, alliances and coalitions have somewhat meaningfully shifted on the peripherals at least, etc. Also, it seems like it's around that time where a lot of the people in the community are in the mood to opine on the state of CN politics lol, and this blog always seemed great at being a space for people to do that relatively freely.
  13. This is true, although imo it is also kind of weird that Bundy did a little over 40k combined damage (7.9k to Moose Hole, 11.9k to nachoburrito, and 21k to REALPAL) to the Fark nations, but not even 2k NS damage to you. Also, you're conveniently ignoring the two wars since then where you and Bundy did practically nothing to each other except occupy a war slot for a few days before peacing out. Tbh, given the data (and FL's own arguments), I think we can pretty easily tell which it is, and to his credit it's clearly not that he's terrible at war.
  14. Of course they don't have a formal treaty, but alliances have held paperless treaties and similar informal arrangements since forever. Anyway I don't know what it matters since, despite Bundy's repeated claims, he is a rogue as you just said, and neither you nor NG or anyone else needs any sort of treaty activation to go after a rogue. You are free to choose to believe NG or not when they say they were asked to get involved, but I don't understand how the lack of a formal defense treaty has any bearing on whether they really were asked or not. I know this wasn't addressed to me but it's just too good haha. I'm thinking they didn't assist because...you didn't ask? Crazy how that would work if true.
  15. Dangit, cham stole my "GK writhes in the grave" joke. Congrats on the treaty and such!
  16. Now this is a clause I can get behind. Very happy to see this finally come to fruition! Congrats to you both!
  17. I love how you are so obsessed with NG that the mere sight of Dude lamenting the general state of CN in a thread that had nothing whatsoever to do with you made you think, "wow, he really must be upset because of me specifically."
  18. You think that NG shouldn't have helped an informal ally by protecting them against a rogue, so in response you're...defending NG...by attacking that rogue alongside them? Am I getting that right? It seems kind of convoluted if I'm being honest.
  19. I didn't realize DS was willing to help defend NG, but at least something positive has come from all of this!
  20. I, for one, strongly support alliances stepping up to defend inactive AAs being raided just because they aren't part of the wild treaty web. Good luck to Rhizo in finally getting some action.
  21. Been a hot minute, but we're definitely in a summer slump. 2,649
  22. Congrats! NG are amazing, and you'll be in great hands Best of luck in growing your alliance.
  23. Well, this is surprising. Much congratulations to our allies in Sparta, though! Best of luck in successfully integrating this change
