    • Lost vs VNS Discussion Thread

      It's been approximately 7 months since we started fighting, but we haven't had our own thread about it. Time to fix that! :)

      Earlier this year WLS and HoR declared war on several alliances. VNS was not initially one of them. But as the fighting went on, VNS began interfering with that war. Therefore we stepped in to interfere with their interference.

      At this point KAPZ/PHNX is no longer involved in the war, and Gr-Al states they have no ties to and no communcation with VNS. Therefore VNS's fight with WLS, Lost, and HoR is now unrelated to the war against Gr-Al. Lost's war with VNS was always separate from the wars against Gr-Al. As such, we offer the following:

      If at any time VNS wishes to end the hostilities, our requirement is that the ceasefire includes VNS and WLS/WLSa, Lost, and HoR. All that we ask is that VNS's leadership contact our leadership so that we can all make arrangements on a ceasefire.

      I dug my key into the side
      Of his pretty little souped-up four-wheel drive,
      Carved my name into his leather seats...
      I took a Louisville slugger to both headlights,
      Slashed a hole in all four tires...

    • Well, since there's such a convenient place for this now ...

      So, this project began because I was bored. (Never again/ At message
      80, I was no longer bored. At message 150, I was ready to claw my own
      eyes out. At message 290, whoever was posting only one CR per post
      became my favorite person)


      I was curious: How is the war going? Well, after pouring
      through 386 posts and tallying damage and loot … not too shabby.


      First, the totals:


      LOST has taken a grand total of 87,383,208 damage 45% of total damage dealt
      VNS has taken a grand total of 104,673,718 damage 55% of total damage dealt


      LOST has been pillaged for 920,558 goods
      VNS has been pillaged for 37,618,556 goods


      Adding the loot to the damage, just for fun, grand totals are:
      LOST – 88,303,766 38.29%
      VNS – 142,292,274 61.70%



      Notes:
      1) The following posts were omitted –
      1,32,37,38,45,47,48,49,50,51,59,60,76,91,104,108,142. These posts were
      entirely HoR vs VNS. Meaning no offense to our HoR allies, but I wanted
      to compile just LOST vs VNS for this. If I add those in, it just gets worse for VNS.
      2) Post 43 was mostly omitted for the same reason. There was some LOST
      activity alongside HoR in a CR or two in there, and I counted those, but
      omitted the purely HoR vs VNS CRs.
      3) The following posts were omitted – 296, and 327. These appeared to be double posts
      4) These totals only include anything posted up to post 386 in the
      CR thread. If it didn't get posted, I didn't record it.

      So, to summarize, it’s not looking all that good if you happen to be in
      VNS right about now. They have a grand total of 3 fighters (if anyone
      in VNS can be granted that title at all) and everyone else seems to be a
      farm of one level or another.

      And for those who are just looking for an excuse to get in on this farming action .... oh who am I kidding. You don't need an excuse to get in on this farming action.

      That's the war summary from your uncle Jack.
    • We agree that the ceasefire starts 00:00:00 October 23rd. At that time wartime activities such as occupations and draining of wonders will also be stopped.
