We are the rank 3 tribe. And we'll be rank 2 again soon enough. *shrug*. Attack is our enemy, and they know that, because they took in the refugees from your tribe as, y'know, we ripped your tribe to pieces one member at a time.
We're not allied with TWITS or their academy. We have a NAP with them for their benefit. It's not hard to look at the map and see that if we started on them, too, they'd crumble in ten days. As ever, we have one ally. Also, the NAP with TWITS was really just a clever way of keeping them out of k54, since their diplomat never noticed that we never agreed to stay out of k55, but they agreed to stay out of k54. The game is only half conquering villages--oh, and look. We've done the bulk of that, too.
It became obvious four weeks ago that someone was going to get left out of the diplomatic loop. Don't blame me that it turned out to be -V-. We offered them really simple terms; they refused, so we took what we wanted. I think we've proven we're here to fight. Your tribe was 100k points up on us when we started clearing and conquering your members like they were made out of paper. Your tribe dropped the ball diplomatically and militarily, trying to rely on their reputation for winning worlds to keep them safe. How many of V's members messaged me that they were ZOMG WORLD WINNING PLAYERS as we conquered their villages? lol.
Intimidation only works when people are afraid of the person trying to rely on the rep.
