Greetings friends and enemies :)

In the spirit of the season I propose that no new attacks land on December 25th (server time).  Let us all take a breather and support those of us with families and commitments in real life.  We can also take the time to be thankful for this great game by remembering to keep it "just a game."

With the cease in hostilities maybe send a beer to an enemy to represent the good will we have towards each other out-of-game.

Inspired by the countless examples in history of soldiers laying down their weapons and walking across the field for one day of peace...

And then on December 26th... GAME ON!

I would be interested in knowing who would commit to this?

edit: Incorporated Darkwords suggestion.  No attacks land on December 25th (rather than no attacks are initiated on December 25th)

If we were to do something like this, which I would support,it should not be no attacks launched on the 25th, but no attacks to land through the 25th.
<Deranzin> I'd agree with darkone on that

Many of us do not celebrate the commercial holiday of Christmas, just saying.

Wow, people not fighting seem very quick to shoot this down.  And yeah, if some truce did go through, it should be for no attacks on the 25, that someone might have to defend against.  Though I'm kind of pessimistic.  I'm afraid certain parties might be seeing this as an opportunity to go on the offensive.

I will voice my view whether i'm fighting or not, and for the record you don't have any idea if my alt is fighting.

I made a basic statement that some people, most of the people on the planet in fact, don't celebrate Christmas. Interpret it any way you want.

Oh, do not go all Pongo on us, dude with the secretive alt accounts ... Either post with your alt then or do not act like it is a common knowledge ... We are not clairvoyant you know. Tongue

The "commercial" part of the celebration/holiday, as you so aptly called it, is even celebrated in China, India, Indonesia and Japan where the Christian religion is a very small minority. Oh, and those three first countries contain almost 3 Billion of the 7 billion population of the world ...

So, I am "just saying" that your "basic statement" is false by any "interpretation" ...

It's a pretty impossible task to get everyone to follow a truce. I am personally not sending any attacks that will land from 22nd --> 26th.

I encourage others to do the same. 

Of course some people will take advantage of others absence and that is just what it is. 

Part from that, sending your armies out on some long occupy marches or feints will be the solution to not losing anything, so you can return after holidays/family time with your armies intact. If you find out you have been sieged - tough stuff.
