I can't speak for Ronin, but I can speak for DSy4. DSy4 has had a diplomatic relationship with Infect since the day of the ceasefire, after nearly two months of fighting both Infect and Virus, nearly 6 months ago.
One of our principles from the day Foc, Hybrid and I founded the premade was that we would always be honest and true to our word. As a tribe, we have no reason to abandon that principle whilst there are other tribes bordering us who we can war.
We've always been very clear on that point; since the ceasefire we've dedicated ourselves to pushing against our enemies in the west whilst securing the North-East.
Maybe sticking to our long-term game plan will result in us failing in time...if so you're welcome to say 'the stage was perfectly set for you, you screwed up'. But for now, let's see how this world pans out naturally :icon_razz:
My little bird in infect has told me that Infect and dsy4 has extended their nap till 15th November.After 15th November they will mutually decide whether to war or not.Like dsy4, infect is also looking for an end game war with with dsy4. On the other hand they have a very solid relationship with Ronin. So infect has two options:
a. War Ronin and make a final 1 on 1 war vs Dsy4
b.Avoid both Ronin and Dsy4 till 15th November and back stab one of their present NAP after that.
Dsy4 duke has made it clear that they will not war infect now. It is almost clear that they are looking for a north(dsy4) vs south (infect) end game war. I don't know much about this tribe but I have played against some of them way back in w39. Dsy4 has following options :
a. Take control of entire North and wait for 15th November.
b. Make an alliance with Ronin and take out Infect now.
From their duke's quote and looking at their recent recruitments it's certain that they are going for option 'a'. Interestingly Ronin holds a fair number of villages in Northern Ks now. So warring Ronin is part of Dsy4 's plan?
Now this leaves out the third super power of w70, Ronin. So far Ronin has played it very safe. They are careful not to interfere with Infect with whom they are sharing a big border. However they are eating up North West. Which will give them opportunity hit either Infect or dsy4 depending on the condition of the world. Make no mistake about it Ronin has a very solid (although too defensive at times) leadership.It's solely for their leadership that they have come a long way from being a rim tribe. So options for Ronin are clear:
a. Manage nap with both Infect and dsy4 (hoping that infect and dsy4 will break their break their mutual naps)
b. Being prepared to war both Dsy4 and Infect (as the end game NAP between infect and dsy4 means there will be no Ronin at end game)
So far Infect seems to be the smartest of the Big 3. However they are risking it a lot by NAP-ing both Ronin and Dsy4. Ronin and Dsy4 are on same page.
Expect some twist and turns in this love (hate) triangle in coming days.
