It's not a blitz when you decide to finally declare 30ish wars after 6 days of fighting, it's called a second round of war. Have fun out there.

I've noticed a general lack of understand of the meaning of the word literally in CN. Let me assure, it does not mean what you think it means.

Calm down now cowboy, you managed to declare 35 wars in roughly 24 hours.

I should probably clarify:

Deinos, an alliance with 85 nations out of anarchy, and roughly 65 nations out of anarchy and in range of people in fark, managed to declare 35 wars in 24 hours. Clearly Deinos is CN fighting menace.

I'm not trying to get into a numbers battle here. First of all, many of our nations aren't in the nuclear range and thus aren't guaranteed anarchy after 24 hours of war, i'm not looking it up. Next look at the fact that we actually have closer to less than 30 nations capable of hitting Fark targets (please tell me you don't intend to play the peace mode card. Regardless, take away the inevitable RL issues plus the nations that recently dealt with Zoom's roguing and we have all of 10-12 nations above 25k ns in peace mode). Combine those two and the number is not even close to 65.

I'm not sure why you're pushing this so hard, after the showboating that came from your alliance after the initial Fark counter-blitz which was undeniably not bad I find it surprising that you're so eager to muck up our election thread cause a couple people decided to engage in some friendly smack talk.

You shouldn't complain about this when you do it so much yourself.

Please don't use me as an excuse. I only destroyed Silver.

Although, I will take credit for Silver resigning. My rogue sessions tend to make people quit certain duties.

SilverEmpress cannot post on the OWF, but wanted me to assure everyone on the OWF that she had actually planned to retire back in early May due to certain [ooc]IRL[/ooc] issues likely due to her irresistible infatuation with me leaving her unable to concentrate on anything else. Well before any rogue attempts on her nation.

Incidentally, I will henceforth be offering my secretary services for the meager price of 50 tech per post*

Oh I don't know about that, I found dropping nukes on your backyard rather satisfying. The queue was rather long to do so though, only got a couple in :v

"Literally the definition of a blitz" is thus an accurate phrase. Next time you go about trying to attack someone's grammar, try having proper grammar yourself. I hear they teach that in 2nd grade or something.

I'm gonna go with the "without exaggeration or inaccuracy" definition provided on that page you linked and say that I literally think you're exaggerating when you call either one a "blitz," which makes your "literally the definition of a blitz" statement literally inaccurate in my mind. That is literally my personal opinion. [s]Meow[/s] Literally.

... and you decide to go with what is most convenient for yourself ignoring the harder, more difficult to address alternative. This is what I have come to expect from Fark and unsurprisingly, you deliver.
