    I understand why Madchess and Strat0 kicks off so well, neither wants to be dedicated team players and just do their own thing.

    Strat0castle: "Respect, fear and resentment are different things. " - True. Respect does start with how you treat your opponent though, and right off the bat he began his relations with Persian on the wrong foot by talking down to him and saying he "expected" the cf to be accepted straight away. He then went on to mislead him, which shows further disrespect for his opponent.

    You have to be ruthlessly brutal in this game toward everybody or they'll sense weakness and endeavor to take advantage of you. Ain't no friends in 'topia.

    Sorry to nitpick, where was the misleading? We said we would offer a cf, they said they would accept it when it was offered and they were online, when we offered it they eventually accepted it when they were actually online (not just showing as online which was a prime reason for the razes and the harshly worded messages from me to Persians kingdom management)

    So you want to pull apart the first message sent, sure it was gruff and straight to the point, kinda like how I am in real life, so that is something less likely to change... The follow up messages and razes after I honestly felt they were basically waiting for armies to get home to hit again were to give a reinforced incentive NOT to take that course of action...

    What i am surprised with right now Allanon is that I have actually asked you as the Utopia Talk Moderator to close this thread as the original question I asked has been answered and I am indeed apparently an asshole in this particular situation and yet the thread remains open... Oh well... I guess it adds spice to an otherwise dull forum... and for clarification I am not complaining you have not closed the thread, nor am I complaining about your abilities as a moderator, its just a surprise and an observation from my side of things... Most other game forums I use, mods close the threads on request from the OP.
