This is very counter-intuitive, given that in the new UI, players receive messages from "King Sigurd of Illyria [DEVS]."  Even before this label, developer actions such as restoring units lost because of a bug were executed through the in-game identity Sigurd.  I would bet many people are mistaking Sigurd's presented position and attitudes as representative of your own.  I even thought this was the case myself, and that the King was an extension/personification of your will in-game, however recused his involvement in actual player dealings.

Hey HM,

Yes, I agree having King Sigurd [DEVS] is indeed a barrier to 'separation'.  Part of the Faction AI changes will move King Sigurd away from an actual town and alliance and into his hub seat at Centrum, at which point we will cease to actively use an ingame account for King Sigurd's actions.

Regards,

SC

In this thread we have seen the apparent demolition of my arguement - that GM Stormcrow's ruling on the "sneaky tactics" (not my words) deployed by H? on pinning NPC spawn points created a precedent that might further tournaments as simply being a means to provoke hostility. The justification for that demolition can be seen highlighted in Stormcrow's posting above.

Also in this thread Storrmcrow now asserts that it has always been King Sigurd's intention to promote hostility between the alliances and indicates that this and future tournaments are to be viewed as a means to achieve this. I must confess that is news to me but as in all things if Stormcrow states it - then it must be true.

So be it.

I know that there are leaders out there who had different hopes for thier alliances. Indeed one wrote to me yesterday saying that his alliance weren't competetive and didn't want to be the best they just wanted to "have a fruendly atmosphere". Fat chance of that then, because King Sigurd and GM Stormcrow want you to be hostile to each other

The alliance known as Harmless? /Toothless? have often denied and ridiculed those who have drawn attention to their insatiable need to dominate and win. However it is clear in this thread they truly desire both  - and more. They want to Quote Bartemeus  "a deathmatch" and it seems likely that it will be a deathmatch sponsored by King Sigurd and ruled over by GM Stormcrow!

There can be no doubt any longer



Sorry to drag this up again. But H? and T? are not and do not act collaboratively, yes H? will defend us if we ask (very nicely, they have more important things to do after all, like winning evil-ness competitions ) T? is a separate alliance. One that tries its best to help, protect and guide new players. T? and H? are not the same alliance.


Thanks,  just had to rectify a misunderstanding that seems to be going around the block.

As I gaze across the sandbox of cyberexistence and contemplate the diamante encrusted pink  and purple mouse of all creation I cannot help but hear voices echoing down through the age's. In particular the voice of Terry Jones (arguably real) playing Mary in 'The Life of Brian' (probably fictional) and addressing a crowd of early religious followers
