Sean, who knows how good your ops were, In a year being in the same tribe as you not once did you help with putting together an op against our enemies even when, I seem to remember, it was your role in the tribe to do so.I created Ops and who was better at planning then me in TLA? I had contingency plans for everything and lets ask everyone in TLA if they would have fought against me joined me or sit back and do nothing since they will not fight their friends? Then looking at who was active in TLA you guys had only a small handful to fight against me and if Grind just fought with only a small percentage would be enough to keep you guys on your toes since no offense to them but I have never counted on much except from a select few. Now how many nobles did you guys have since remember I doing retakes and just decimating all those that attack me and then if you did take one how much would I make it cost?
One last thing it is easy to say you would have won since you won this world but if we truly fought are you positive that I would fail?
As for the last part, I'm positive you would have failed. You would have hoisted a white ( or yellow) flag, and ran as soon as you started losing villages. A special mission would have happened, and there ya go.
You have always lived on what you could achieve, but rarely have I seen you achieve anything.
Good luck Sean.
