Greetings. I do not usually post in the forums, but something is bothering me. Chasing "war runners". This strategy was a typical war alliance policy to keep players from leaving alliances at war after they were actively engaged in hostilities. Players would always try to run from trouble when the tides turned and their alliance started loosing the war. It has evolved since that basic idea into something different with many different triggers. Today it is being done merely for spite!

Today, chasing "war runners" is part the game, but only in some circumstances. Illy is contracting. It is smaller and less active then at any point before. But a big birth is right around the corner in the form of new updates. Currently we have Laga from mcrow chasing Josh and who knows who else. He has attacked Yarr!, Tcol and all AFTER wars were ended. Forced to end if you will. Mcrow itself has accepted the peace and much deservedly so, but not Laga. This player chases after players out of stubborness. There are not enough players, full alliances, active wars, or activity to justify this old strategy as Laga is using it. His alliance, mcrow is not chasing war runners, he is. mcrow wants peace. He does not. Why let a player split your alliance over being stubborn? 

Laga is turning into the exact same thing he himself hates. He is turning into a Stukahh time period SIN member. Yep. All his recent activity is nothing but what the war alliances used to do. The mcrow SIN war is over and it did not end like a typical War. It was forced to end. And that should have been the end of it, but nope. One player, out of an entire alliance is dragging them back into conflict and causing rifts in an alliance that only wanted peace. There is no talking with this player, there is no reasoning with him. His absolute blind rage and stubborness can not see that his approach to chasing war ruuners does not apply anymore to that war. It is over. Let it be. Move on and be happy. 

A conventional war, with lots of players could employ such tactics, but with the end of that war, today's Illy does not need it. Not blindly like is being done now. With updates coming and people coming back, maybe chasing will find a place again. I am sure it will, but not in this case. This case is something different. This case has a player not listening to his alliance, not listening to any reason, but acting on pure spite. Illy does not need this right now.  

Anyway, this is my opinion and not that of anyone else. but it has bothered me so much I had to speak up. What has happened to a player many looked up to and had much fun with? He has turned into the very thing he hated most. If you did not like that style of play then why are you using it?

I see it as something that could massively hurt mCrow because their leader puts his personal grudges above the will, and best interest, of his members.

You could say that. Never fun to be confronted with a suiciding leadership account. If he drags mCrow down with him, we can all guess who you trolls will blame for it.

Quit crying QB, the people he is perusing have been doing the same thing for years.  Now that you are on the other end it sounds like you don't like it.  I know many many people driven out of the game by sin and now it's all of a sudden too small of a game to fight? Now it's time to end a policy that if sin remained an alliance would of remained a policy? Lol too funny.

I don't think the policy itself is the issue. Nothing wrong with preventing the enemy from rebuilding troops while hiding in a neutral alliance. The question in this case is why Laga is doing this alone, without the support of his alliance. He is, by himself, antagonizing multiple alliances, who would prefer to remain at peace with mCrow, up to the point that enduring peace is no longer a given.

He is the leader.

I believe he has the right to do as he pleases.

Complaining doesn't really help
