NL3 gained an early lead. Well they started it so had it all planned so it would be odd if they didn't wouldn't it?
Whether they maintain or increase it or if NDH pulls it back remains to be seen. Brockasmith was courteous enough to state that the defence was better than expected. I see no reason to turn it into a slanging match and insult each other.
At the end of the day they are the two top tribes so pretty much had to fight at some point. That's what the game is about.
I havent played .us much so im not familiar with the players and their quality, but from my time in tribe leadership...
Being prepared for war with the biggest tribe next door to you is just standard. And when its such a small server as these are, one would think the #1 and #2 tribes wouldnt just be aware that war is possible at any time... but be actively working towards it, unless its a huggles world.
Not trying to flame anyone, just an observation
On topic, good luck NDH (always go for the underdog) and may both sides have good times and many sleepless nights.
