Sov some of your posts are comical because you are talking to people who in no way lead or make decisions for the Alliance. If you want to create a reason to continue a war with LaF that is fine but lets not pretend like we are asking for it.
Also if Gains was trying to gang bang SoF then we were doing a hell of a job of having the worst built war countries ever (no spies or sdi or stock) you wanted to hit LaF because you felt disrespected and your ego took a hit being in our IRC room. You and I have no issues, that I know of, but lets be men about this.
We don't really need to peafluff on AT about it, let the war stats speak for themselves.
…" you are talking to people who in no way lead or make decisions for the Alliance."
SOF is an alliance and does not believe in your "Deep State" way of thinking. A lot of us have been playing this GAME for 20+ years. Along comes some yahoos who want to find significance in life by attempting to control the GAME with pre-arranged wars, deciding who should and who should not be hit.
If a Clan wants to net, then net. If a Clan wants to war, then war. Clans should make their individual decisions and should never need to get permission from the self-serving who attempt to make decisions for the whole alliance.
This self-serving attempt to direct the whole alliance have destroyed recruitment and drove most from the GAME.
Each Clan can form their pacts based on their needs. Netters should always build their countries knowing that other clans might come exploring for land. Warring Clans should always prepare their countries for other warring clans knowing that even a high stocked netter might come exploring for land.
Clan rules should be consistent, (retals 1:1 or land:land), and should one clan deviate from established game rules the other Clans can jump on them to enforce these rules.
Their will always be the highest hitter, highest waller, highest netter although the numbers may not end up the same.
War Clans brag on their ability to build strong war countries.
Netting Clans brag on their skills to do all the calcs and strategy to get high NW.
Are Clans afraid to build their skills by preparing for whatever might happen?
