I declared war against u Shining Forces... in all fields...
@ads126: Well, that's true. Although, those people could always just post the DoW like right before attacking. This way, they still keep their advantageous blitzing maneuver while seeming appropriate. Hell, I suppose something after maybe 10 ticks in would still be appropriate.
A DoW thread would also be able to quell all the nonsensical ramblings on the in-game Broadcast. I mean, at the rate some of these people use that thing - they've gotta be nearing a daily average of 10 mana per day.
DoW threads also allow leaders to fully explain their side of the story and their perception of events leading to such a declaration. It would allow multiple members on both sides of such a conflict to engage in diplomacy with one another and maybe reach an agreement.
Same with Non-Aggression Pacts. You can set out the EXACT terms - that way, it becomes apparent if someone really is, genuinely, betraying someone.
I dunno. I guess I'm hoping I can convince people to start utilizing the Gameplay Discussion section of the forums more often. I think there's a lot of us out there who would particularly enjoy the Roleplaying possibilities that would be associated with this.
EDIT: Routhy... I'm actually curious as to how one goes about posting a Battle Report. I know it has something to do with taking a screenshot... but I don't know how to do that, either, unfortunately.
