[12:04:08 AM] OsRavan: lol [12:04:14 AM] OsRavan: dont you have a MADP with them lmao? [12:04:26 AM] Johann Olaf Styke: Yes, they'd have to declare war on themselves. [12:04:30 AM] Johann Olaf Styke: It would have been enormous fun. [12:04:36 AM] Johann Olaf Styke: And you ruined it, as ususal. [12:04:37 AM] OsRavan: that would be kinda cool [12:04:46 AM] OsRavan: declare war on yourself to activate your mdp [12:04:56 AM] Johann Olaf Styke: Are you crazy!?! [12:05:00 AM] Johann Olaf Styke: Sparta can't take on Sparta. [12:05:04 AM] Johann Olaf Styke: We'll be massacred. [12:06:11 AM] OsRavan: but you will have your good friends ODN to help! [12:06:16 AM] OsRavan: we wont let sparta roll you! [12:06:39 AM] Johann Olaf Styke: Don't you play me for a fool, I know you've got a treaty with them. [12:07:03 AM] Johann Olaf Styke: You're just playing nice, cozying up so you can strike when we least expect it, [12:07:05 AM] OsRavan: we are optional though. I'll let them know we are backing you, not sparta [12:07:43 AM] Johann Olaf Styke: Yes but WE'RE attacking, it's oA, but it's MD.

[12:08:04 AM] OsRavan: im going to kill you! [12:08:08 AM] OsRavan: and defend sparta [12:08:09 AM] Johann Olaf Styke: FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF [12:08:16 AM] Johann Olaf Styke: I KNEW IT![/quote] Admittedly that whole thing was just me and Os being retards as usual, but it brings up a curious thought experiment: If for some conceivable reason, however ridiculous, an alliance declared war on itself (i.e. some kind of bizzare civil war where both sides refuse to give up the right to the original AA, claiming to be the legitimate Sparta), how would that alliance's allies respond? I'm sure in this case Tums and Shinpah would tell me I'm being a retard and they'll have no part in it, and Xiphosis and Delta would probably jump in the fray for kicks, but without thinking in terms of pure lulz, how could an alliance react within the bounds of treaty obligation? If I, as King of Sparta, declared war on Sparta on behalf of Sparta--and it was clear this wasn't a joke, and you, as a treaty partner (lets say MADP for kicks), were obliged to operate within the confines of the treaty system, what would you do? I'm curious to see if you can wriggle your way out of this little experiment without violating the terms of the treaty. Edit: Also relevant because of the current conflict between myself and Wilhelm, the idea of a civil war in Sparta came up, with Sparta split down the middle between me and Wil. Doubtless no end of amusement. Edited July 22, 2010 by Olaf Styke Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
