  1. I have absolutely no idea why you posted this as a reply, since the amount of treaties an alliance holds has no bearing on what I said. I'm guessing you were going too quickly and misread?
  2. While you definitely have a point, that's not the type of standard we were referring to with that exchange. Specifically, we were talking about the standard to which wars are literally fought. Working treaty chains, coming up with a battle plan to outplay the alliances lined up against you, strategic dow's that are meant to maximize damage to others and minimize damage to you based on the ties individual alliances on the other side hold, etc. Basically, what we were discussing was the fact that chess aspect of war was one of the most important parts of this game, and while it was certainly i
  3. Bad breath, it was definitely bad breath. Smooth had a horrible gingivitis problem back then. As for the rest, well, I'm not quite sure how to reply to a post with this title from you, so I won't.
  4. Would say SU. But yea, !@#$@#$ retarded piece of !@#$ fab melo.
  5. Don't even bother trying to explain it, because it won't go away. Ever. I've mentioned it many times before, but it's worth reiterating that the whole 'ad hominem, strawman, paradigm, draconian, etc' word bank is possibly the biggest pet peeve I have in this game. They are almost always used wrong, and even when they aren't it's just seething with a thick layer of try hard. Every time someone uses one of those words/phrases, I picture the poster as a middle school student sitting with his eyes three inches away from the screen grinning ear to ear while hitting refresh and waiting for that fat
  6. Hey, it's been awhile since I said hello. Playing under a new name (formerly BigKat). Saw you posting a couple of times during the RoK drama and wanted to say hey!

  7. I beg to differ. However, even though I actually manage to fall into all three of your categories of people who can legitimately use Latin, I do agree with your point on that and it annoys the hell out of me. Abuse of italicized Latin around here ranks up there with overusing the words hegemony, paradigm, ad hominem (which gets dual citizenship in both annoyance categories), etc. I have a whole list written up somewhere. IRON's play on Cato was at least fitting if not a bit overused though.

    CBs in CN.

    Very good While Chocolate, I've thought about pointing that facet of the definition out in the past but always figured it wasn't worth it. On that note though, I've never seen a war without a CB in all of my time here (well, except maybe the KoN attack but I guess that was a raid, whatever). There has been, and always must be, some semblance of cause for war, if not it kind of defeats the purpose of the game. Now, if any of you are thinking 'well what about NG hitting SOS!!@! That has no cause!!!', there is a little back story that you should consider, since the cause here isen't 'I dont like
  9. Agreed, but it's not just Polar. It seems like every thread goes to one of five things: 1. NPO 2. Past wars. 3. [PB/XX/SF/MJ/CnG/Insert Bloc etc] is evil or bad. 4. Polar is marked for death. 5. Karma.
  10. And there is, of course, no personal bias in this statement whatsoever. Normally this is the type of topic I would read only at 5am to sober up, not comment or care, then completely forget about it the next day, but jesus christ wiki banning? You were a hall monitor, weren't you. Literally laughing out loud.
  11. I think its due to a misconception that most of the banter on here actually matters. This forum is where things sometimes start or come to light, it might be where things end, and it can be where you get a general feel for an alliance and their opinions, but its not where the meat and potatoes go down. No amount of arguing or "making someone look bad" on here can actually get enough support to destroy them if the people who would be supporting aren't already otherwise inclined, some goes for the converse as well. In reality, its about interpersonal relationships between alliances and what diff
  12. Dear Doomhouse, Impero thinks you are a retard (and that's saying something.) I don't really have anything to say about the stuff in that quote, I broke up the post here so that everyone else can giggle along with me as Impero accuses me of foaming at the mouth and then launches into his own crazed tirade. You and Goldie's mewling excuses about inacitivity and ignorance cannot hide the facts: Out of all the alliances in Doomhouse's coalition, you are the only one that literally went ape and started threatening reps and unending war when you finally got around to reading the terms that had been
  13. Doom House's rebuttal limited the participants of the 21-day period to just NPO, but Doom House immediately allowed TPF and Avalon to also participate upon their request.On 4/24--SIX DAYS before VE lodged any complaint about any terms which had at this point been available for VE to review for a MONTH--GOONS graciously agreed to allow Avalon to sign a separate peace at the end of the 21-day limited war so that they would not be party to a peace treaty with reps on it.Now, your lie is that VE always planned to not agree to the terms, and did not suddenly bring this up because of Avalon's stunni
  14. Alright, so you just didn't read what I wrote then?
