I remember when I used to rent video games, but then we were like...

6 dollars to rent
30 dollars to buy

Better off saving and buying.

Laf never cheats, they just push the boundaries of acceptable behaviour, then everyone copies them. Then laf turns around and says it was acceptable behaviour, which by that stage it is.

Netgaining only ever leads to conflict and war.

We should just apply Laf's old judgement from 2002, "your 20 member group is too small to be classified as a clan, therefore we will farm you and not recognise retals"

EDIT: from the wiki

Opposite of planned early fs = uncertain arranged late war?

Laf FA prolly were aware of this from Sol FR.

EDIT: Evo would have known this too. So Laf rocks up and slaps Evo in the face basically. wtf.

Laf and Evo know Sol is not planning an early war? Laf asks Evo to join in against a fictional war? Won't join in against Sol in a fictional war, therefore must be on the fictional other side = pact void.

In Australia its reported as both a lock out and a players strike.

Thats part of the reason why I am asking whats going on.

From what I gathered, both sides were blocking each other, owners made an offer and it was rejected by players.

LaF has no interest in warring sol, it was only ever about evo. Sol just happened to be the alliance which related to evo's breaking of our pact. Nothing more nothing less.

My conversation with diez was purely to get an evo head to confirm their pact with sol, and double it up with a breaking of another term of the pact by saying they wouldnt fs when requested to (which i knew they couldnt anyway since they signed a pact with sol.)

Obviously i couldnt void the pact on hearsay, i had to have evo confirm their pact situation.


Oh my bad.

1.) Laf hates Evo. Could just war with Evo anyway but;
2.) Needs reason/justification to bring in allies against Evo to get 166% majority

BORING. TOO SIMPLE.


Uno Rules Apply. Laf uses yellow Reverse against Sol; Evo's turn, Evo responses with yellow skip on Sol; Laf Turn, Laf uses draw four on Evo. Colour is changed to red. Evo has a hand full of new cards, but laf has the lead.

Translation from laf and Evo side about alliance:

1.)Laf wants to war Sol, but hates Evo. If Laf wars Sol, Evo wins networth crown and gloats (somehow unacceptable). Therefore in order to war against Sol, Evo must war as well so they don't win the netting reset. (Alliance condition 1; Laf wins netgaining)

2.) Laf doesn't enjoy war, so a part of Laf's alliance is that war requires 166% advantage plus a FS (150%) = 250% advantage. (Alliance Condition 2; Laf wins war)

3.) Condition 2 was not met, so Evo declined in order to win netgaining reset.

4.) As a result condition 1 was not met for Laf so Laf declared war on Evo.

5.) Declaring war on Evo requires condition 2 to be met, which means they got one of their 'alliance' members to agree to war with Evo.

Zero sum games require four players, Who is the fourth player??
Laf may have initiated backstab but by deduction there is another anti-Evo clan in the alliance. Actually I don't have a clue who, though the betting has begun.

According to what I have read, Lafers are saying Evo was wearing rose coloured glasses for thinking that the alliance was to their benefit as well. Laf isn't 'wrong' they are just 'strategic', 'everyone knows alliances should only benefit yourself' *cough* sociopaths */cough*.

Actually its because warring at the end of the reset has a lot more meaning than warring towards the end of a reset against a netting clan.

From a Sol perspective its better to war a netgaining clan at the start of the set, as you are only ruining potential netgaining performance, whereas a lot more consideration is taken as the war approaches end of reset due to the larger impact. Delaying kids from building a sand castle (opportunity cost) isn't as cruel as destroying their sandcastle when built (realised cost).

This perspective comes from our old FR system where reps are exponentially worth more towards the end of the reset. Like wise the impact of war is greater.

If you warred laf at the start of reset, they would prolly only hold a grudge for one year, if you warred them at the end of a reset they would probably hold it for 3 years.

:(

In some Australian sports the owners didn't have a choice and were forced to have a salary cap, mainly because half the teams would not be viable otherwise. Though the top teams always get in trouble when 'unrelated third parties' give their players houses and cars and stuff XD.

Sending in star players to negotiate directly who have no business sense and can command higher pay that doesn't reflect the average player's income is totally the best move for all the players.

They are also doing it at a time when their fan base is going through rough economic conditions, they will prolly lose ratings/income in the longer term.

So from what I can gather, NBA players are on strike because they don't get paid 5x what I do in order for them to warm a bench for a season. Oh wait they do.

Is it just about pay or is there some changes to player trading or something?

I'm joking, I tend to agree with dagga 83% of the time, and support the remainder ;).


I refuse to pass judgment as I haven't heard from all sides. Mainly due to my near afk'ness to the game.

What I would find interesting, is that given Evo has improved their war performance, if Laf starts to lose, would they call in allies on Evo?.
