What makes it worse is their clutching at straws made an opening for the south western tribes to secure their position.I would say this is the case when every Spam member brings up other tribes as "a bigger threat", "more logical war", etc.
I doubt trying to spread fear on externals is going to help at this point. Every tribe fighting SPAM knows that if they let Blood fight the biggest tribe/family, alone, they are hurting themselves. Cicada is busy fighting the second biggest family. At this world speed it will be forever before these wars are finished, if all tribes stay active. To say they are the immediate threat to SINTM is quite a reach.
It is not "Logical" for 2 small tribes, bordering a tribe bigger than both of them, to fight each other and allow the bigger tribe to keep growing. No matter how small of a border 1 of the tribes share.
If you play Crusader Kings II, you get to a point of domination where your "Threat to The World" gets too high and the world starts making a defensive pact against you. The only way to make it go away is to slow your own expansion. SPAM has not once slowed down expansion, and has many borders, big and small, with tribes they pi$$ed off along the way. Only thing to do now is fight the war that was created from rapid expansion, and poor diplomacy.
Good Luck to All Sides!
Their diplomatic moves are not tactical and just failed again by trying to back a tribe haha. Good effort but a failure none the less.
But heck us South Western guys are being manipulated with no control over how long we survive and grow. We in PMS and SINTIM are really struggling being just noobs not seeing the 'bigger picture', I believe the phrase was.
I cant remember the agenda now was it trying to turn SINTIM on PMS. Or was it turning SINTIM on the southern tribes without a discussion. Oh no wait was it to create a NAP with Rise so they could fall. Oh there was a bit about Cicada too on the otherwise of the world attacking PMS. Ahh we cant see the smaller picture let alone the big one.
The fear is very real. We can barely send a train on time let alone sniping or whatever that is.
In all honesty this is actually my first WT world. Lockdown has got me back. Really really useful underestimated how useful they are if positioned right wondering if anyone has any decent strategies on placement apart from making sure you cover the biggest circumference as possible.
Anyway all fun and games alongside some joking around nothing personal guys.
