The wars we are in are the wars we are in they are interesting and fun to us...to some playing tribalwars is about PLAYING tribalwars not about just getting to the top.
Sorry would have made more sense had I quoted who I was replying to.I can assure you they are not bronzed & are a member of HR i was the friend who informed them of how amusing this post was, to watch rank 3 & 4 argue & war whilst rank 1 & 2 continue to take over the world, very amusing indeed.
For the record TRI did start this war. Bury your head in the sand all you want about what former TRE leadership did not do. When your allied with someone and have a player who disrespects your allies constantly by ranting and raving at them in their forums to include cursing at them, who nobles their players, runs around to a tribe you are supposedly at war with your ally trying to get a NAP with them...I respect how you've played within TRE/TRI, I really do .. you're one of the most active and aggressive players we've got, so kudos for that. However I find it laughable that you're still posting private information in the public forum, including criticism of a tribemate, internal mails from another tribemate without even removing his name, internal forum posts.
Bitching and moaning in public like this doesn't serve your tribe well at all, there are no benefits to it - it's immature and disruptive. That's not aimed just at one person it's a general opinion.
I've actually never seen the like and I've been playing since W5.
You don't know what's happening at a diplomatic level and you certainly shouldn't be questioning the reasons for the war .. even less blaming bronzed for the war - that's been dealt with in this thread by me so please don't contradict.
For the record, one last time ..
TRE (as it was) did not start this war:
Ex recruited a bunch of players from [Fu] (a tribe we were previously allied with but that had screwed us over numerous times until enough was enough and we dropped the alliance with them).
Among those recruits were players that we were actively clearing & nobling, and players that had previously jumped from TRE and started attacking us.
As a direct consequence of that action we dropped the alliance with Ex .. 4 hours later they declared war on us.
Those timings have been proven with screenshots earlier in this thread.
bronzed was cited as the reason for the war in the declaration but just because someone said it, doesn't make it so .. he was a convenient excuse and the wording of the declaration was an obvious and futile attempt to split TRE.
Further, it's not as if we're oblivious to how players are playing or what they're doing .. we're not - we have a bunch of tools & stats that mean we can see exactly what each player is doing and we know who is and who isn't participating. We're working hard to address what we can without disrupting the tribe more than we need.
And finally, we also know what the consequences of the war with Ex are - HotRex ambling towards an easy win.
Fallen Hobos has stated that he'll never work with TRE again but I'm happy to state publicly that the feeling is NOT mutual - leadership has changed here and notwithstanding the fact that I disagree with a lot of what he's done thus far, I wouldn't say never to anything. We didn't want this war in the first place, the players that shouldn't have jumped and screwed us over have been dealt with, and we know what the result will be of this war continuing in to the future.
Looks like someone ran out of barbs and inactives near his super-cluster:icon_biggrin: Is the Great-Internaller-Of-Them-All going to be internalled himself? D:i had assumed bronzed's absence indicated that...
1. lish had returned
2. lish had instituted a gag order
but maybe there is something else going on
It doesnt matter when Bronzed is around or not, he stil doesnt do a squat.FWIW bronzed is still around, I was talking to him yesterday & today.
I was referring to the posts suggesting he's inactive purely based on a TWStats graph, nothing to do with what he does/doesn't do.It doesnt matter when Bronzed is around or not, he stil doesnt do a squat.
Not weird at all if you bear in mind that I already explained that there have been other, higher, priorities for us to deal with since I became duke.And while I understand that you dont want to deal with Bronzed here on the internals, it just seems weird that he hasnt already been dealt with. I mean c´mon Bronzed isnt even worth a place in the Commonwealth.
I think I mentioned in an earlier post that the feeling Fallen Hobos expressed about never being willing to work with TRI again is not mutual. No doubt some members would have an issue with it but hey-ho, can't please all the people all the timeEx and TRI clearing eachothers villages for HotRex, great stuff :icon_biggrin:
"or at the whim of the duke/members of another tribe who think they can destabilise us."I think I mentioned in an earlier post that the feeling Fallen Hobos expressed about never being willing to work with TRI again is not mutual.

If I thought we could form something of an opposition I'd be open to ideas but it doesn't seem as though Ex are willing to budge so yes we'll just carry on as we were I suppose .., I don't bear grudges I just play the game / lead my tribe as best I can based on the state of the world .. if that means agreeing to disagree / moving on / insert other cliché here then I'm always willing.
:icon_redface:nor do I know of any duke of any tribe that can destabilize another tribe.
1. the graph and his curious and sudden vanishing from the world stage (which perfectly coincided with the graph)I was referring to the posts suggesting he's inactive purely based on a TWStats graph
