I'm puzzled and disappointed by Azreil's extreme reaction toward me, he's always claimed to be a skilled politician. He could have let me make a peaceful farewell to all the members I've been helping during months. Trying to prevent me from communicating with other Valar was pointless and the way Azreil ejected the poor Quicks, who can't connect atm, because I'm his sitter, was ridiculous. There are spies inside Valar and he can't prevent it. The informations I already had were more threatening to Valar than the informations I could have acquired by looking at the Valar chat (which is most of the time a chat between Dakota and Angrum having nothing to do with game). And I would have distributed my resources to Valar's members.
Moreover I have been willing to quit the game since the 2nd tournament because of all those incoherent game systems, because of the game's rules changing every month or 2, because the server is crowded, because the biggest players are regrouped in one unique alliance, etc. Valar members kept convincing me otherwise, seriously guys all that energy spent for finally betraying me?
Az announced I'm "fair game" knowing that I had already demolished my cities to 20Kpop total and dismissed most of my troops. He, at least, could have let me have a good fight or a peaceful retirement.

Now when I see Anjire displaying an obvious knowledge of igm I sent to Valar and as I'm fair game and as I've been betrayed, I think I can publish 1 or 2 infos. I don't hope that it would lead to any consequence, although I think this boring server would need a good global war.

We you're stuck in the same situation than most of Evony servers after 1 year, everyone is bored, a big alliance or a big meta-alliance forbid any skirmish between old players, instant messaging prevents from concealing attacks, old players quit (several Valar's old players did), scavenging players (Lorre and co) are restless so any pretext becomes valid to demonize and lynch another player. The only players that are happy are daily clickers.
If you add the fact that this community (when I say community I'm talking about the 10-20 players that always speak on GC and intervene on forums) is one of the most right-thinking and heinous and full of hatred I've encountered so far (I reckon not the worst).

Buddy,

I believe that the community is right now being polarized by our recent actions, I use the word "our" because I share the responsibility as the leader / founder of the VALAR.  I am getting information that H? is mobilizing its allies against us. While we still have to hear from 0--0 and Invictus. I highly doubt that it is the time to pose a military challenge to H?

In view of the above and before I formalize options for the alliance to consider in coming up with a formal position on the matter which we shall then broadcast to the community, I would like to hear your position and plans on the matter.

Personally , Im still divided on whether to :

a. Challenge H? and risk my survival in the game and the survival of the alliance - which i really dont mind, am about like burned out by the game. If a good majority of the alliance prefers this, which i doubt, then it is worth fighting to the end.

b. Play to the music of H? - issue a public apology, appease the community, play defense and rise up to fight another day.

Let me know soon. Before panic and confusion  sets in, I would like to be fair to the rest and let them know where we as an alliance is headed.

Thanks and good luck

 

Az

Hi Sloter,

We are looking for close allies to form a front against the Aesir-PA-Dlords-H? clique trying to dominate Illyriad.

We believe VALAR and INVICTUS share more or less the same stand with regards to the political machinations of this group and it would benefit both if we, together with 0-0,  form a united front to counter them.  I also intend to bring TMOT to our side

I put my trust that this proposal, no matter what you stand might be, shall be kept in the strictest confidence. We have always considered VIC as a friend and a distant ally, you having helped ius and 0-0 in many previous occasions before.

Please let me know if this is something that merits your favor and we could discuss forward.

 

Best regards,

 

Azreil

Btw Lorre, you should know that with sally forth I wouldn't have needed any reinforcement from Valar, even you had showed a better understanding of Illyriad system, instead of sending your reinforcing troops one by one. Fact is you've lost 10K troops and I've lost 3500.
Still I had some reinf (see below).

Interesting read....

So you have control of Quicks account, Quick can't get on so you are destroying his troops now?    Or is this a third account of yours?  (You already admitted to another as your alt).    Inquiring minds want to know Star
CEO, Harmless?
Founder of Toothless?

Am I missing something or is there no new information here?  We already knew _duQ was being reinforced earlier, and that Valar have an "open mind" regarding conflict with us.  The latter is self-evident in their inconsistent position regarding general policies and real actions, inconsistent reactions to _duQ's behavior, avoidance of hard facts in political discussions, and smarmy communications with flattery clearly intended to disarm and appease (while their actual behavior suggests strong disagreement with our own alliance culture).

Beyond that one can easily infer from personalities and past behavior which alliances Valar would think might join with them in making a "big picture" play and that of course they'd be interested in making such a play.  Without confirmation that other alliances are actually partaking in such speculations, the external outlook appears unchanged to me.

It is interesting that Valar think Harmless are "mobilizing their allies," as we've not been in communication with anyone except DLords, and that only with regard to mutual grievances against _duQ.  I dare say Valar will live to fight another day, whatever the general attitudes and sentiments between our alliances.

This and the quote from Starry above is just cheapskate drivel.

It's one player against the powerful alliance in Illyriad for goodness sake. Just fight out it and finsh it. Don't demean yourselves with cheap shots and snide analyses

That one-month old message about considering "open hostilities" with H was made in reaction to reports that I was getting that PA was just being the front of a concerted effort to attack the VALAR, and using the pretext of the berberos affair to launch a TMM kind of crusade against us. 

Remember that during this time, PA was drumbeating war against the VALAR, Smoking gnu was vilifying the VALAR every opportunity he gets on GC, Curse has mobilized for a possible war with VALAR, so we were certainly being forced to seek our own allies.

So this is to clarify that it was made as part of our reactive defensive agenda not a proactive  agenda for evilness and world-domination. 

This much I will confirm that we have sought support from 0-0 and VIC in anticipation of a TMM "holy" crusade against us.  Which proved to be an over-reaction on my part.

That message was made at the onset of the berberos affair, when I was still somehow "behind" _duQ, meaning I tolerated his actions for respecting his individual preferences for offensive play, but not to the extent of destroying berberos being a newbie.  Which eventually proved that I was wrong in giving duQ such support.

And of course, _duQ being the warmonger and most hawkish among us was, in hindsight, getting  support that he always wanted to push for his own brand of aggressive play which goes all the way to enflaming a global war, which is not what I want as leader of the VALAR. 


I already made our position clear to HM that the VALAR is here to represent an alternative gameplay, aggressive in kind, and create a healthy tension for the meta-game. Perhaps it could not be avoided that we will not agree with the culture and ideology of Harmless, for we have our own ideology and we enjoy  our own brand of play and I know we have our own base of support among Illyriad players.  And what will become of this game if everybody subscribes unquestioningly to but one ideology?

But this is not to say that we are here to destroy the game of others.  This is where _duQ started losing my support and the support of the VALAR.  His character was stubborn and intolerant of newbies and it is becoming apparent his blueprint was for a global war. Which is not the VALAR's.

_duQ could post all the "innocent" info he wants to. But I really do not care even for the spies amongst our ranks.

_duQ thought he had me hooked on his strategy, and he was wrong.  That is why he is out of the VALAR.  Just as well as the spies reporting on all that is already history.  ^^ 

Suffice it to say, _duQ has played irresponsibly and lost my trust and did not deserve to stay any longer being with the VALAR.   

The VALAR will definitely fight, that is our brand of play, but as I have told you HM, we shall fight in a responsible manner.  And regarding the use of flattery, its always a tool of statesmanship, and there are many others who does the job so much better than I ever will.

Azreil, 

"in reaction to reports that I was getting that PA was just being the front of a concerted effort to attack the VALAR, and using the pretext of the berberos affair to launch a TMM kind of crusade against us."

"This much I will confirm that we have sought support from 0-0 and VIC in anticipation of a TMM "holy" crusade against us.  Which proved to be an over-reaction on my part."

I appreciate these comments.  I can honestly say, I never knew who Berberos was before all this started.  I believe the person spreading the rumors that berb was a "front" was the troll aneirin.  

I am not opposed to older players fighting amongst themselves if they are restless - but leave the newer players out of it.  This is where I take my stance.  There is an old saying, "Pick on someone your own size."  I feel as though Lorre and _duQ should have just gone at it, 1 on 1, and gotten it out of their system.

I think the hidden message here is everyone wants to see a big war,(most don't want to be involved but rather watch),so going by Sunstorm's advice "pick on someone your own size",H? declare war on everyone and appease the community,it is your responsibility,claim the whole map as H territory and all living in it's realms as servants to H.
