So, Baltus posted a question in our embassy about who we thought the top 5 greatest alliance rivalries of all time are. I find this to be an interesting topic, so I thought I would share my answers and get your own personal top 5's for discussion's sake.

1. NAAC - NPO
2. NpO - TOP
3. Fark - GOONS
4. MK - NPO
5. TPF - NoR/NoV

I'd say NpO-TOP would be number one, NAAC-NPO may have been relevant for 1/4 of CN's history, but it still was only a small amount of it. No matter how good it was, it ended far too early to be considered the best. MK-NPO is a good one. I'd move Fark-GOONS down simply because while they have the history, they really haven't opposed each other since GW2 if I am not mistaken, and therefore how much of a rivalry can it be? As for TPF-NoR/NoV, I don't really see anything resembling a rivalry there, maybe an intense dislike.

The last time I saw a thread like this, I believe it was Doitzel who came in and ended it with GGA vs. Success.

Now that you mention it, I do remember that thread. That post still gives me a chuckle.

you've got some of the usual ones like:
TOP vs. NpO
Valhalla v. STA
GOD vs. DT+NoR


also you can have some of the more amusing Doitzelesque ones like:

CSN v. 'Sovereign'
JB v. The World

etc.

NSO v. proper nation building

TOP/Umbrella/Grëmlins vs fighting on the losing side of a war

TOP lost against the world, and GRE lost against IRON (I don't care what anyone says, Ram made them lose that one).

Wait. GOD vs. DT+NoR is a thing? I might not like either alliance a whole lot but it's nothing like the hate we used to have back in the day for, like, FEAR or Illuminati.

For a long time it would have been:

NPO vs Legion and
NpO vs ODN

That hatred dominated the first half of cybernations.

I certainly remember NPO and ODN having a thing but ODN and NpO?? relations were pretty damn good until the whole WoTC mess.

GATO / NPpO

Yeah totally.

Exactly what I was going to say. Speaking OOC I still think the way that relationship ended is a bit sad, but given that ODN spent months and months trying to get Polar to like us prior to the world polarising into Orders vs PB/DH, I don't see things ever going back to the way they were before.

As for the thread at hand, I'm surprised TSO vs NpO hasn't made the list yet.

It was tragic man, One of my biggest regrets in CN is how that all went down (Not that I had any power at the time but you know...it sucked). I still feel that on some level ODN owes Polaris a debt :(

Sincerely, stop posting and rebuild.

Sincerely, stop waiting for someone else to tell you can, come and get us if you really need to. Last time I checked we were about to pass you again BTW, exactly how rebuilt would you like us? You don't have any chance ever of an element of surprise, we are ever vigilant against the snakes in the grass.

Now that's a rivalry making my list as follows;

1. Polaris and TOP - It is true, there is much hate towards us from the Paradoxiods.
2. NPO and NpO - The world never really saw it, but it lingers still.
3. MK and NPO - From the distant past to the distant future so shall it be.
4. FAN and NPO - Has to be there surely?
