and you serve me, therefore he serves me
Seriously? This from the guy who declared war on us from two continents away? Let me get this straight; you want AK_Iceman to capture a village in a continent south and west of his cluster so that you can nuke him? Look, with a big enough handicap even a quadriplegic can out-punch Mike Tyson. You wouldn't be proving anything except your own weakness that our guy would have to come to you with minimal defenses so that you can launch a whole army against him.
How's this sound, instead? When we've expanded westward at our own pace, our two tribes will share a border. Then, our tribe will gladly play war games with yours and teach you how its done. Until then, quit whining about how you'd stomp THE if only we'd distance-noble into your territory so that you can nuke us.
I dont think boo! have ever said that we do not need offenceThat is the kind of nuke they are attacking with. Actualy, the usual one is weaker and more unballanced. Their declared objective - they write it in all their mails and forums - is to hinder our growth. Nothing about ennobling, rimming, winning. "Just kill all you can build in offense on BD and THE. We do not need offense for something else as there are enough barbs around."
