Greetings, general Revanchist....

Welcome General Barrett, it is excellent to have a commander of your high caliber here. I hope you intend to stay that we may even the playing field against the stacked Second Turn Alliance through your conquest of Europe and mine of America. I intend to invite several other generals in to bolster our offensive and defensive abilities, and I'll open the Private War Room within the day.

It's a good offer, but I don't want to be disloyal. Luke was the first to offer his assistance and, while it may have been in his interest to do so, I want my allies to know they can trust me. In other words, if he joins 2TA, I may do so too, but not otherwise.

Welcome to the treaty, and great to see you in DA. Sorry about the lack of commenting I've been doing lately, DA and exams have been zapping my time, plus I'm wary of strengthening potential foes. I'll definitely get around to commenting on some of your stuff in the next week or two though!

Hey dude, I know how I am in the GWC and you are in the 2TA, but I was thinking that maybe you should consider taking A13. It was be another coastal territory for you, and it would benefit all because that would most likely make Shifu attack Deus, or go for A3. If you do this, it wouldn't harm anyone in any alliance, except for maybe Deus, and it would benefit all, also except for Deus. I am only saying this as a friend, not an enemy, so please actually consider this alternative. :)

And you might want to convince Matt Rowntree to take A18 next round, because it is a coastal territory, and it will slow Deus down, as he will obviously be trying to head west towards the small, but numerous, coastal territories.

Okay guys, that new rule about Treaty Organizations is going to mess a lot of people up and we'll have to make sure that we analyze who we're attacking carefully. We cannot attack friends of friends. Hence, if you are in a TO with STUDS, and you wish to attack, say, Shifu, you cannot as long as any member of the 2TA or Moto Moto Ninja Corps is in STUDS. Plan carefully.

Hi George, thanks for the contact. While I wouldn't publicise tactical decisions on an open forum, both the moves you suggest have merit and we are considering them seriously, along with other possibilities; in all honesty we haven't decided yet. Rest assured I don't see you as an enemy, just a fellow player. So as a friend, why not reciprocate the 'Like' I gave your tank? It could start some mutually beneficial smiley-swapping, and maybe tip the balance in your favour come the attack window.

Welcome general Squid, great to have you on board. This is a powerful alliance, and in light of new TO restrictions posted by Mr. Rutherford there will be a new rule in STUDS permitting members to only be in one other group - GWC and STUDS would be a great combination.

Hence, members of the 2TA will be removed from the group come Friday morning. I sincerely hope that you will choose to leave the 2TA and become a full member of STUDS, as you are not only a powerful ally but also a friend.

Perhaps, while he was planning the group, he got antsy and built a few creations, and thought "Hey! These are pretty good! I should make a fake account and strategically put these creations on so it looks like I built them after the group was made!" It's possible, not plausible. Besides, he seemed to fit right in, like he's been on the pages for years, and he might not be Michael, maybe he's Keith? I don't know, but he's awfully suspicious.

Your Attention Please, ALL Minor Generals of Decisive Action,

I have a question to ask you. What do you think made this super powers so powerful? I have the answer. YOU. You minor generals of the world, you are the ones who have created your own destruction. You and I have rated and commented on their models in the hopes of getting on their good side, to get into their alliances, or even for personal benefit! Woe to us for WE HAVE CREATED OUR OWN DESTRUCTION!!! By rating and commenting on their models we have made superpowers that only tolerate us as long as we do not get in the way of their master plan! As soon as we do (for all will surely block the way to victory) they will crush us like a flea under the heel of their tyrannical jackboot to be blown away like chaff on the wind! We have simply become the means of our own destruction! But, THERE IS ALWAYS HOPE. We do not have to put up with such dictatorial, tyrannical, and generally evil behavior! We, the minor generals of the world have several options. First, we can tear down the superpowers of the world! Unrating their creations and deleting our comments can accomplish this. This will bring them down to our level so that they can be eaten up like raw meat set in front of a pack of hungry wolves. The second option is too make ourselves into the superpowers. Rate and comment on each other’s models and we can soon become superpowers ourselves! We DO NOT have to cringe with fear in the presence of these superpowers waiting and hoping that you are not the next meal! Stand up, find alliances such as G.D.U., G.W.C., and S.T.U.D.S., rate other minor generals models or delete your comments on the creations of the suppressive world superpowers. Stand with your fellow generals and together we can destroy this evil!

But how do we know we can trust you? We told you time and time again what would happen, and when it did, you decided to leave us for the 2TA, and now that they told you the cost of joining, you think you can just 'change your mind' and come back to us after you BETRAYED us?!? Are we just a backup plan to you?

Sorry about that I was under a lot of strain from the mass exodus from G.D.U. I also told you I did not expect to be let back in to the inner circles.

Under strain? People left that group BECAUSE it had members from the 2TA. And strain is no excuse for trying to join the enemy. And who said you were back in the GWC and STUDS anyway? For all we know, you are a spy, and this is your mission in order to be able to join the 2TA. How are we possibly supposed to trust you again?

That's not even close to a valid argument. So the only reason you want to come back to us is because it costs to much to join the alliance you REALLY want to join?

Lets think about this for a minute. Lets say that you had made defense union and people joined and it becomes very large and powerful. Then all of a sudden a mass exodus occurs and no one really explains their reason for leaving or at least their REAL reason. Some of these people are the admins or substantial leaders of TOs you are in. At this point YOU FEEL BETRAYED.

I'm sure you would have tried to do the same thing that I did in that you would have tried to do the best for your TO by joining an extremely powerful TO to support your own.

Then later you discover the real costs of joining the powerful TO and realize that the other TOs you were previously associated with were right and so you drop your TO so that you can go back.

This is what happened to me.

We completely did tell you the reason we left. We left because we had to. With Mr. Rutherfords new rule, we could attack friends of friends, and you had people in every alliance in your group, making your group not powerful, whatsoever. If anyone stayed in your alliance, it would have frozen the game. And after we left, we told you to come to our alliance, where there would be a place for you, but instead you went over to the 2TA. I'm not sure what is so hard to understand about all of this.

In which case, welcome back. I'm glad that you chose to stay with us, 2TA is indeed a ruthless bunch. I appreciate your honesty, and you're right, we can't let you back into the war room for a little while at least. That said, you are a valued member of this alliance, and we're all glad to have you with us.

That's not an ulterior motive... That's the REASON we had to leave. We can't attack members of the 2TA if we are in an alliance with a member of the 2TA. Did you even read the new rule?

I'm starting to think you just say things without looking into them. That is the ONLY reason we have had this entire time. We never gave any other reasons to why we left your alliance besides that reason right there.

Well, I asked Keith, and trust that he was telling the truth that it's neither he nor Michael. There is an incredible resemblance between GE and Goldman though. Good theory though, I was thinking along the same lines. ;)

It had even crossed my mind to wonder whether YOU were GE, Luke, given your lack of productivity all the while he was pumping out MOCs. I mean, it would be the work of an insane genius to position himself to control both the most powerful TOs in the game. On balance, I don't think you're that twisted. And you obviously did put a whole lot of work into that amazing tank!

I have a few defensive mocs, but I doubt I will be able to hold out Matt and Stuart for long.
Anyhoo, Africa's awesome! I haven't died yet, so that's a plus. I finally made it to my hotel, and am going on the first trek of the safari tomorrow! I am DEFINITELY bringing home a pet Lion that I can ride around on. And maybe a Butler Monkey that can buttle my every need.

GE was the reason this all began but I prefer mutual agreement rather than being told do this or that. I should have taken another white space rather than attack LCV in lock step with the 2TA but I am a good soldier...
