Recognition of Saltivities – WMT

This is an opinion article. The views here are strictly opinion and based literally on what I think. The views within this article are not a solid representation of the alliance I am in, my allies, or Orbis Weekly. Enjoy!
What’s up ORBIS!
It has been a little bit since we had a WMT (or any article) up on here and it just feels fitting to throw in WMT with some extra salt. Today we are going to be talking about GoG’s or maybe just Ashland’s Declaration of War on my alliance, The Island. In all honestly the only thing he declared war on was whatever respect he had left with his PW persona. To understand the full story of this insanely timed, placed, and executed DoW – we first need to take a step back into the past.
Before we step back, please understand that the actual act of declaring war on nations of TI is not what is wrong – war is war and we have been enjoying it all – issues arise with the words Ashland attempts to spew publicly in effort to make himself look great? Maybe he’s trolling? I that case – the issue is he’s a shit troll and either needs to try harder or not as hard…hop into the time machine, its time to head back!

It is the year 2015, nearly 4 years ago. Two alliances who were once allied to each other turn a diplomatic dispute into a battle. These alliances were Brotherhood of the Clouds led by Lord Frostsword and Earth Systems Alliance led by The Speaker. During this time in PW history color spheres were ‘a thing’ and they were used frequently and claimed. Brotherhood of the Clouds, Earth Systems Alliance and United States of Terra created a bloc on White and claimed it as theirs.Within our council we had a section that said “Alliances that move to the White Sphere without notice and refuse to meet us diplomatically will be met militarily.” Thinking back, I think we thought we were all tough shit and that nobody would really bother with it…but we were wrong.
Shortly after our little launch, Arrgh! and the Guerrilla Republik moved to the White Sphere to challenge our words. Pretty much boiled down to Arrgh! and Guerrilla Republik leaving White if we changed our article within our sphere – the one that stated basically this shit is ours and anyone who comes here will be rekt. Over the course of this incident and the time spent with BoC we learned that we really didn’t have the same interests. ESA wanted to go to war with Arrgh! and GR or at least show that we are standing our ground and BoC wanted nothing to do with that. There ended up being a lot of rumors on both sides of the argument and eventually ESA decided we should leave our little white bloc and go our own way – this obviously pissed off BoC.
You gotta remember, back in these days it was a lot different than the current. Almost a completely different game in terms of mechanics. At this current time BoC was 53 nations strong at 16,114 total alliance score and ESA was 24 nations strong at 8,026 total alliance score. Which is not comparable to alliances of that score today…I don’t think there were even nukes yet. Anyway tho, ESA and BoC went to war.
If you know the story and you compare it to the recently DoW – you can see that Ashland likes to swap things around just a little bit. I think there might actually be something mentally wrong with the way he lays out ‘facts’ and produces an argument.
Ashland when he wakes up every morning.

The status quo of Ashland is to throw out a bunch of nonsense, all random, all trash and hope someone takes a bite. Ashland and BoC lost the PR war back then and Ashland and GoG will continue to lose that PR war today. Not to mention, its nearly 4 years later….

“Hi, TheSpeaker. How’s it going, sweetheart? Long time no see.”

This is how Ashland starts GoG’s declaration of war on The Island…after we were already pummeled by Oblivion and Arrgh in a very gentleman-like war. (Shoutout to Bluebear and Ockey who act like gentlemen and not whiny little bitches/Ashland). So, let’s make a couple of points clear here:

  1. The Speaker (based off the game Destiny) was my name back in 2015 – most everyone knows that. Why Ashland uses that name like it’s a brand new find that everyone should know about…who knows, maybe he thinks its clever to use people’s old names? News Flash! Didn’t change my name to hide from anyone – This Just In! Everyone knows its me.
  2. Long time no see? Bitch – Seeker brags about you being in GoG all the time. Why? No fucking clue – You’re definitely not anything to write home about – let alone – be excited to have in any fucking alliance within any position. You’ve been known, once you’re out of the closet you’re out bro.

Seriously, did you fall into a coma post-citadel war nearly 4 years ago and wake up thinking we were still at war? DoW is outdated and poorly delivered. Just like the last DoW you basically wrote for LF…

Then you move on to some random ass ramble about you don’t care why and you don’t know why and you got marching orders and quotas – honestly just trash, but why should I expect good substance to come from a trash player. Once trash – always trash.

As we continue on to the post, which made me laugh as it totally brought me back to the 2015 era of the Citadel War and how shit you were at posting publicly and how you made BoC look like a burning dumpster fire…we move on to your ‘actual reason’ for CB.

Max “DID SOMETHING”

Oh..my..fucking..god. What could I have possibly done to get a garbage DoW from Ashland………….again? So, lets scroll through. Your DoW states my old name, long time no see, references our history and then you provide us with the gem “I actually don’t remember what our history was. I think our alliances were allies then enemies or something?” – scroll up to the retard gif. Then, you tell me that I can’t call my alliance micro (11 member alliance – 13 when the war actually started with Oblivion and Arrgh) – for why? I can’t call my alliance micro because it makes you feel better for hitting a micro OR because in your mind you’re attacking someone actually at your level so that you feel satisfied with a curb stomp? Just like the BoC days – attacking an alliance half your size back then and claiming a victorious win over the ‘bad guys’ – when really, in reality, you pick targets that stand no chance OR have already been beaten and then demand a parade in your honor. Ur trash bro – and unfortunately you’ll now label GoG with a larger TRASH label than it already receives from the global community, but hey, if seeker is ok with that then…fuck it right? OH..

Legit have no idea why this discord screenie won’t go any larger without looking like you just threw on your grandmas reading glasses, but it goes a little something like this:

Seeker: Well Ashland isn’t FA so his opinion isn’t the official stance and should be taken with a grain of salt.

Max: As it always has been 😛

Seeker: Not to mention he’s not even high gov.

I guess that just begs to question, does seeker really not care for GoG that much to allow a shit bag to publicly post on behalf of GoG (it is an official DoW after all) and ruin any reputation that GoG might have with its allies and the general public of Orbis? If his opinion isn’t the official stance then, does that mean the CB listed is false? Does the statement that “he’s not even high gov” add to the fact that Ashland is just a token member within GoG who really shouldn’t be taken seriously..cuz I mean guys, he’s not even high gov.

If we scroll a bit further down that thread, before it turns into an IQ fest, we see that Ashland states that they are attacking us because we poached or attempted to poach GoG gov.

Let me tell you a little something Ma’am. It is true that Natalia, EvilPiggy, Hahiha & myself were all GoG gov. We stayed there, we did our work and our time and built some good shit and it was good while it lasted. A while later I started The Island on my own and my friends came over to join – sadly – those friends were still in GoG. Unfortunate for you if you believe a player can’t depart and join different alliances and you think that is poaching. Thats called OG fam bro – I know the closest things you got to fam is all them coons that stop by and knock you over at night on the curb…cuz yes, you trash bruhhh

There ain’t nobody currently in GoG that I would consider poachable material and that is primarily because I don’t even know anyone over there. I stopped paying attention to GoG after I left. The only thing close to poaching that could barely even stretch to is our constant remarks to Don Fluffles to join our fam on The Island. Don is a god damn lifer – we all know he’d never leave GoG and it is honestly OK. We love him regardless – he will always be OG Fam.

Not to mention, Hahiha is barely even active and we just kicked Piggy for being in VM for fucking ever. So, I guess congrats to me for having 1 active ex-GoG gov member? (not including myself)

As per usual your words are garbage, your trolling is trash, and your relevance is in the gutter. You will always make alliances look like shit and my only hope is that your actions open the eyes of your allies to show what a true joke you are & what you show your alliance to be.

Seeker would be doing GoG a giant favor removing you from the alliance – I mean he already seems to think you’re kinda nothing too, so maybe stop trying? Your old school references and overplayed insults towards me and my people are honestly so stale. If you wanna insult me, get some new material.

If y’all just hit us and kept it respectable and actually had some fun with it, this would be a completely different post. You’re the type of sour player that needs to be removed from this community or at least go back into hiding. Seeker is honestly a good guy and it sucks that he got stuck with you – I mean maybe you’re chill when you’re not hard for trolling me and my people, who knows, I drove through a town in NY with the same name as you though – nothing was there, seemed beaten down and old…the whole time I was like, I wonder if he named himself after this place, its fitting.

Anyway, thats it for WMT.

If you want a tl;dr

TI loves the wars we have regardless of winning or losing its been fun and a huge learning process. Ockey, Bluebear & even Epi have been stellar opponents and gentlemen through our battles and its been great talking to them. Ashland took a trip and stumble down retard row…and should never have popped his funky ass head from the past he’s still living in.

Final Result on the Trash-o-Meter: ASHLAND IS TRASH!

Seeker, if you’re reading this – ditch that home of sexual and take me. I’ll treat you right.

ORB War Tracker – Live

War Map(1)

Updated 11/12/2018 – 0026 CST

Today we added lines (purple) to show United Hoods’ departure from the front lines.

It would also seem that the 12th Global War on Orbis is now officially being called Knightfall…although there seems to be some issues with the poll not staying open long enough for the community to come vote.

That is it for today folks – we seem to have hit that brick wall of war.


Updated 11/8/2018 – 2130 CST

It has been 11 days since our last ORB War Tracker update! Where have we been?

Truth is, not much has happened or changed dramatically within the war – you do have plenty of people walking the path of saltiness, you got others trying to urge others to get into the war, and you got some people just straight up getting bored.

Let’s face it – when we are sitting out of these wars, we are constantly begging for one to happen and once it does, there is some minor excitement, huge spur of activity, and then just like that we are bored again.

BUT..

Something a bit exciting for you might have been the numerous posts, which may have been a push to get Vanguard to join the war?

All of these posts seem to follow the same theme of “I identify as…” – but this is pretty much just old news – all of these fake news DoE posts were sent to the forums on November 1st, by the aggressors of this war.

We saw Sketchy from TGH post on ‘behalf’ of Polaris again…

We watched as Fezza got ripped apart on the forums – apparently looking to gather a lot of support from his side, which fell…quickly & Rozalia is back?

On Sunday, we all got Fraggle’d again – hearing from ChuChu Fraggle in the Alliance Affairs section of the PW Forums. Looks like Fraggle’s 1 man alliance is now a 2 man alliance.

One last thing we want to report on today, which relates to the war is stats! A lot of people thought that ORB Weekly would post and keep up with war stats – unfortunately that was never in our plans, we wanted to keep up with the action and the story – luckly, there are many awesome people in the world who love stats and work hard to produce those stats – today we stumbled upon a post by Frawley in Orbis Central. It would seem that NPO, Lord of Darkness, and Frawley have designed a pretty awesome tool for war tracking – fits in nicely with a clean ui, searchable stats, very easy to use. Frawley says in his post that “this tool tracks every single attack made in the game, it tracks the infra prior to and immediately after attacks.” This system also uses the daily average traded resource price for all loot calculations, resource use costs, and rebuys.

They even have awesome graphics:

Frawley announced that they will have leaderboards for Unit Kills, Most Damaging Beige’s, and list of individual attacks coming soon – plus more!

All stats are available through NPO’s forums right here, have some fun and check out your stats!

Nothing crazy has been happening on the war-side of things besides the continual grind and issue with the ‘war slot line’ – people aren’t finding slots anymore. That is what happens when you have so many people going for so few targets.

Multiple sources are citing that there are not going to be further counters in this war and that this war set up will continue till both sides come to an agreement – BUT – that doesn’t mean there will be changes to directions of aggression.  Stay tuned.

Map Changes/Additions

  • Added public neutral parties.
  • Changed Federation lines to purple to indicate there was aggression, but now they are out of the war.

 


Updated: 10/26/2018 0015 CST

We have updated some lines and aesthetics of the tracker.

We are back with another update – looks like we have some action kicking up in the protectorate circles. It should be noted that we apply those who we see (At the time of posting) are attacking those who created war declarations, if we missed anyone let us know! We will slap them on the map too!


Updated: 10/21/2018


Updated: 10/20/2018

We have updated the war tracker – please be advised that we are keeping this as simple as possible. If you follow the game politics & follow the war progression in our The Brink reports, it would be clear and obvious who the sides are. RED lines will mark the aggressors, blue lines will mark those on the opposite of the aggressors. If we end up with side wars throughout, we will add them with a different color. It is also to be assumed that those alliances who did declare war on another  would be retaliating against each other – so there are no double lines being drawn.

Updated: 10/20/2018

Understanding the Tracker:

In efforts to make this a lot simpler for everyone now and into the future when people look back at wars, I decided to create the main DoW lines (aggressors) Red. The Defenders will be in Blue. Blue lines created for offense are only for alliances that were not apart of the main declaration – for example – those that are going to war based off their ally being hit. It would be assumed that if an alliance hits another alliance they would be sharing declarations on each other – so there are no extra lines drawn.

Neutral Parties will be placed on the tracker later on.


Updated: 10/19/18

We have finally come to the point we have all been waiting for – GLOBAL WAR. ORB is pleased to announce that, if you’ve been following our “The Brink” posts, we correctly delivered the scenario!

We have seen a multitude of declarations posted on the Politics & War Forums – due to an appearance on the GreatJob! show tonight, my work to get you guys this updated war tracker was a little bit delayed.

Please, if there are any errors – let me know ASAP so they can be corrected.


Updated: 10/18/18 0215 CST

Multiple reports have been sent in to Orbis Weekly over the last 12 hours that indicated war would be happening today. As of update, no shots have been heard. In addition to those reports, we also heard rumor to ‘watch out for midnight’ – with no specific timezone indicated. We waited here at Orbis Weekly till 0000 CST – still, no sign of war.

There is still war on the horizon, don’t think of this as just a dud. Right now, each side of this war are trying to make the other side jump – so far nothing is working. The staring contest continues.

We have entered a cold war-era time.

Stay with us as we continue our report in this post.


Original Post 10/17/18

It’s that time of year, the time for war!

Orbis Weekly has been reporting to you about upcoming war for some time now in our ‘The Brink” reports. It has come to our attention that this war is about to kick off, in time with our theory. (The NAP end on the 18th).

The good news is, we are going to track every aspect of this war and get as many details as we can to keep you all in-tune with all war operations, even when you’re busy with your own.

Stay Tuned.
