Go back and read what you quoted.. He said Matter Nation.. Anything else you wish to spin? goodness gracious you reach more by the hour!
Instead you will find some way to downplay my points, question my integrity, question my alliances resolve, and call yourself king and/or prophet. But let me ask you this? No one ever declared you a prophet, and you are not yet king. So by constantly referring to yourself as these things, who are you trying to convince? Us or yourself?
A couples counsellor may suggest to Momqb and Lord Squid that they spend more time sharing moments of real life instead of sharing an attack planner.
Last I checked, 6 months to WW's is a long time. almost two thirds of the life of this server. So while you think everyone is going to happily bounce along until WW's,
It also amazes me that after months you still are talking about The Hive players separately from AM/DM.. Trust me I know this is a mere ploy to emphasize any separation between our single unit But it gets old, and just makes you look sour. Why would anyone want to leave the winning side right now after all this time?

1. I should reword my notion of sink or swim and adjust it to crown or no crown. The members of Last Rites will more than likely be absorbed just as the academy alliance of Dark Matter will be absorbed into Antimatter, not due to any type of poor performance or lack of leadership, but due to lack of people. Before the Havoc hiccup, this world was a foregone conclusion with our side easily winning, but things have gotten way to balanced and the current trench warfare (the Sargassum Sea) we all find ourselves in may draw this speed one server out one to two years further in the future. I've lived through this scenario before. And if it pans out like that, some of the temporary arrangements and treaties that will have to be made are gonna boggle the mind of Machiavelli himself. Keeping interest and server population going will become the true mark of successful late stage leadership.
2. I'm actually gonna lay off the Hive stuff in the future even though it's as sweet as honey for me to go there. In the culture I'm from, we tend to hold grudges and vendettas for centuries. I criticize that in real life, so I should clean up that up in this virtual world as well. Propaganda-wise, all I'm doing is trying to de-humanize the enemy so that we can humiliate you in-game without feeling the pangs of a guilty conscience as we prepare to earn our crowns.
3. And the definition and treatment of false prophets has been long established. A false prophet is proven so if their prophecies turn out wrong; conversely, a true prophet is proven so if their prophecies turn out correct. In terms of a noon-high shootout in the Wild West, there's only room enough for one sheriff in this town. So either you are a false prophet or - gods forbid - I am. So you can't blame me for considering you a false prophet; otherwise, I'd be suffering from Sybelline self-esteem by possessing foreknowledge of Foosean failure. And since Foos never fails, the corrollary is that your side must. No grandiloquence here, just simple logic.
btw, bzzzzzz I'm a former Hive player
some religions believe in rebirth, or reincarnation, with each new manifestation being the opportunity to be stronger. that says it all for me
Spies are part and parcel of the game, Proniculus. The fact that Bellos had served with America's finest, the USMC, made him automatically trustworthy to me. Call it a blind spot of mine. Marines are trustworthy until proven traitorous. Nevertheless, I shall never forget all the good laughs I've had reading his skype messages, especially about the 800 ilbs woman in the emergency room. And in game, Bellos was instrumental to the reason I am the #1 Head Hauncho Undisputed Master Overlord of O55.
"He saved others but he can't save himself," were the words thrown up at Jesus on the cross by all the petty little Proniculi taunters gathered below. But alas, I am no Jesus, just the humble little Oracle of Upsilon, ever-faithful to the truth that is to be; namely, that AR and her allies shall indeed win the crown.
A big historical P.S.: Benedict Arnold's betrayal didn't lead to a British victory in the Revolutionary War.
And once again, AM/DM builds it's future upon the clay feet of betrayal.
I have my own little personal challenge to take more than half of your cities in 055 to shut you up.
