They don't allow me to sign anything since I'm just a grunt but this could be interesting. Beer

Well, the other day we were being described with insulting criminal terms. Today, it has been conceded that we are the British Empire. I consider that to be a vast improvement.

Taking off my SIN mask for a moment. From a purely gaming perspective, I want to give credit to HATHALDIR for stepping up and making good on helping to deliver "Grand Strategy" to the server once again.

I've been talking a bit about this in GC -- that the game developers bill this game as a "Grand Strategy MMO." Even though Wikipedia isn't a gold standard source, their page on Grand Strategy is worth checking out: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_strategy

It's not up to the game developers to deliver on the "Grand Strategy" aspect of Illyriad -- it's up to us, the player base. The first four years of Illyriad were highly engaged in this level of play, and because of it, the game thrived. As Grand Strategy has receded from the gaming culture here, engagement has waned. All you need to do is read some of the negative reviews on Steam to find proof in this.

Most players come here looking to gain entry to and play within in an overarching geopolitical milieu that has not been present in the game for 3+ years. Even if only playing a niche role, players generally want to experience some measure of the metagame. I am hopeful that we are beginning to see "sides" form again. Factions. Good for you that you're ready to play this way again. For my part, you can count on me to play against you all to my utmost.

Putting my SIN mask back on . . . 

For those who align with us, we welcome you as friends and allies. For those who oppose us: WE ARE GOING TO RAVAGE YOU ALL.

How quaint and curious war is! That an alliance already at war with an alliance from a certain confederation should unite with other alliances at war with members of that confederation seems reasonable enough. But why the need for some broader declaration?  Do you really need to set out in such plagiarized detail your ideas for the future of Illyriad? Do you truly expect additional allies to sign up?

Oh well, talk as much as you deem necessary; so long as you stay out of MM.

I try to stay neutral in all of this other than observe what is happening. Illy with an edge is a much better game. Our young alliance has trained from its start to defend itself and its independence from anyone.

Haths long winded speech only confirms my beliefs. Do not count on anyone but those within your own alliance. Certainly not any conglomeration of confeds.

Then you need better confeds. Ours are trustworthy in battle. Most alliances use NAP and Confed as a Facebook follow status, which is not really effective for actual gameplay.

I thought NAPs were for minimizing the unintended bumping/killing of others?  Seems like there should be another level of diplomacy in there somewhere?

HATH's idea was bound to occur.  Was it introduced in the best possibly way?  Well... clearly there are critics. 

Let the story lines develop and the winners get to write the final narrative!

Well, as we British imperialists like to say, "I'm chuffed as nuts!".
