Incorrect. Miles never had a master plan against Ronin - not in the manner in which you are using.
Miles declared in a fit of rage when, after slapping someone in the face, they slapped him back.
He was perfectly fine with making angry noises about us hitting his refugees until that occurred. He stormed off in a huff after his honor, integrity, and loyalty speech and launched into his song parody.
I have never made that a secret, nor ever said there was some Grand Master Plan. And the fact that it took DSy4 a werk or two to finally organize ops against us sort of proved it.
As you stated, common sense says that believing you guys were prepared to fight us is silly. You have done lovely things up north, but that was clearly organized after the fact.
With that being said, I won't pretend as if I know every reason Infect chose this path - it certainly surprised my guys given the situation. It will be interesting to see how long we can eat alongside one another before proximity and similar targets put us at one another's throats.
it's tough to navigate your walls of text and I may have missed something but:
Destroy us. Noble us.
You can, can you not? I trust your little north and south agreement allows you to noble us down south and remove us once and for all? Or shall you simply open the door and have TR take the villages? A perfect symbiotic relationship that allows you access to areas of which you, personally, may not be privy because it would interrupt a delicate balance.
Or are you going to ask Infect to declare on us, as well? A perfect scenario with you, your not-allied-except-as-of-today-and-deeply-respected TR, and Infect, all striking out at us so you can eat faster in the north, merge TR into you (we already saw your newest recruit - one by one as you need fresh bodies), and smile serenely as you "watch" Infect bogged down in a war in the south. Which, I have no doubt, you will, with your honorable ways and habit of never telling a falsehood, patiently wait out so you can have your much desired one-on-one.
You declared. We accepted. You have the advantage, and you have remarkable talent in that tribe, so I expect great things from you. We are going to bite and nip at one another, and we're going to take villages off one another. But you have the upper hand. You should have the caps. You should have the ops. You are on your own territory - we are scruffy interlopers who believe we have a crack at the world. But something tells me you will be doing more and something tells me you are looking over your shoulder. I have no doubt that you are talking to tribes in the world to see if they will tidy up Ronin a little faster, just as I am likely doing the same.
Your pets, who are 100% not allied with you and 100% do not believe w70 rises and sets in your pants, will get involved in this war. They will attempt to gain ground down south, which I'm sure will please Infect to no end (since Infect, I am sure, is also acutely aware of the fact that TR is its own separate entity and plans on going to war with DSy4 before your one-on-one Epic End Battle).
We are not so clever. We are rabid and hungry and foolish and long ago I told Repinski that I planned on meeting DSy4 across the field one day. That was back when we were clearly nothing more than TT food.
But I meant it.
And I mean to take this war as far as you want me to. So I will be fighting you 300 hours away in a hopeless battle.
Apparently when you declare war on a tribe, what you mean is that you want to write up a song parody, toss out some stacks to dead weight until such a time that they are ready to be internalled, scoff at the idea of wasting time and resources hitting 95% of said tribe, and *actually* just want to remove them from a couple of Ks up north where they have no real presence and should be easily removed by The Powers That Be From The West.
I guess you cross your fingers and hope that Infect finishes the war you started. Or TR, or PWM, or I Will, or whatever little rim tribe takes the bait and strives for glory. Or, alternatively, the ferocious whirlwind that is DSy4 will bring us to our knees and we will be clamoring for peace. DSy4, atop a pillar of skulls from vanquished foes, will look down on our humble, prostrate forms, and will allow us peace if we tear away at the underbelly of their foes while they finish up the north, then prepare for their final war.
