the only think i "assumed" was that ego are aware r4ki could take them down. i don't think they will/would at this stage at least. but i'm sure they could. and EGO!!! are aware of this. that's why they are careful with their words when it comes to r4ki . it's not assuming. it's an educated guess.
and r4ki should feel the same fear about ego, a war at this stage of the good would just stunt each others growth and we in the world for the long haul. r4ki is a great tribe with lots of talent many people in ego know people in r4ki and know what they are capable of and vice versa so just quit trying to assume things
