Me, of course being a senile old man, seem to have a slightly different memory.
El Chacal and superguy, started a day or so before Garrock and landed a continent away from Rabit.
I am not sure if W79 was already wrapped up, or still busy while actually over, but since chacal waz Garrocks co there and Super a tribemate, a decission was made.
chacal and super would get their own little tribe till we waz closer to rabit and than join, maybe ad 1 or 2 decent players picked-up along the line.
Unfortunately Ruud from the Super account ate a funny mushroom (*1) or something, and suddenly thought he waz gods gift to TW and the ultimate Duky.
He neglected the original reason for Panda and started hitting the invite button.
All sorts of creepy peeps (*2), like mattcurr popped up, alliances were made, and basic rules waved away.
Curry was his new best fwiend, barbling a must, and panda waz going to be the best tribe ever.
In the process he took a shit in my pants, invited the enemy, and broke his alliance.
I left them and attacked those trying to screw me over. Lots of the new pandas wanted a piece of me, but did not have the balls.
It was only after a couple of weeks that I joined rabit, as per original plan, so panda had time enough to make their move on me, making me a refugee and unwelcome. Not seen 1 single incoming other than a recap.
Rabit had an alliance with akats (who were going to be their ally till the end...) and panda.
pandas kept being annoying peepz with more talk than action, started barbling where they shouldn't and most Rabits wanted a war with them. A war that was promised me by garrock the day I joined.
Instead of war with panda, the big hug maneuver was there again; pandas got invited instead of rimmed.
I guess the rest of the story is well know to all, but on request I am more than willing to write my next essay.
But first it's picture time
