However, you are forgetting one key fact- you guys began fighting LoEN around the start of June, 2011. Phoenx had been at war long before then with RAM. Phoenx doesn't have its back up against the rim like you guys do. There is no real area where Phoenx is safe from an enemy attack. Phoenx doesn't have extra dead accounts that can be used to stack frontlines nor are there ever accounts to be internally nobled. LoEN wanted war when things were still looking somewhat good for RAM... what you are saying is that you expect Phoenx to have set itself up for a 3 front war with LoEN from the west and RAM from the east, and both of them in the south (k93-95) when you started your war with LoEN long after. Who exactly was going to provide defense and sitting for that? Not to mention that it was a known fact that there were RAM players and some of their friends from w14 and w18 playing in LoEN for a while too, which would have allowed for increased coordination.You are right, r2, I do have an obsession.
I often like to equate TW with life
Under no circumstance would I expect my [ally]/[spouse] to make a [NAP]/[friendship or business agreement of any sort] with the [tribe]/[person that I was at war/irreparably at odds with]. I would regard that as disloyalty of the highest degree. Yet, even after LOEN broke its NAP with pnx and attacked pnx, pnx made a new NAP with LOEN.
Frankly, for an ally to make a NAP with the enemy of their ally just sucks IMHO As much as phoenx can bitch their brains out about CH~ST, it wasn't as if phoenx was ever at war with or even attacking or attacked by CH~ST. Only 2 members of pnx have ever fought CH~ST. CH~ST is not near 24 of 28 members of pnx, was never a pnx target and likely most of phoenx never even gave them a thought to that tribe until this recent exhibition of brinkmanship. It's not as if BH made a NAP with the enemy of our ally.
I mean look at this map, its from December 1st, months after the LoEN ordeal, and Phoenx is still surrounded on 3 sides by LoEN and RAM.
There is no way that you can criticize Phoenx for re-napping LoEN. Pajuno did what he had to do to ensure the safety and longevity of his tribe; I am sure that you would have done the same if you were aware of the exact internal state of Phoenx at the time. If this short post wasnt enough to convince you of that, cece, you have my skype I would love a good civil debate.
