First I am kind of glad I did not come here because I think I would have been rude and said this pillow crap is so foolish

After reading everyones post and laughing hysterical I see that this somehow turned serious, so i will keep it serious...

Charl i loved the part about you eating the pillow I spit soda all over my screen

Okay serious, I am an older brother of 3, 2 brothers and a sister. 15 yrs older than my sister I am more like a father figure but only 2 and 4 yrs older than my brothers. Anyone who has siblings knows that there is always a rivalry and anyone who has either been the older or younger of the two knows that there is always competition and if your older you know that you can never let your younger brother win

I being an aries and an alpha male[thats right strippers] have always had to not only win but lead at many of the things I have done whether it be games, work or even personal friendships and relationships.... I am all for competition and working hard

Now that being said whatever i do in life I do it honestly and I do it with respect. I have always given ppl respect until the point that respect is not given to me and then it is gloves off... Borys if you go back into every convo I had with you you will see I speak true. however you on the other hand feel different. You have not only disrespected me but many of your own players that were in GO even before they left so it seems to be a pattern with you

Honestly I think the only reason for this chat is because you realize that you and the alliance you are in are in trouble and your looking for a way to mend the fence....

I did not come here looking to battle any particular alliance as I have always believed in core first before alliance wars. That was your alliances decision[which they regret I assure you] and you joined them just to get payback at us[me]....Yes we saw all your gung ho post in the beginning when you first joined them.....

Now as far as morale goes I have no issues at all with doing anything I can to make the gaming experience better for my members. If that means placing spies in alliances we war with, making fun of butler, reporting images of candy coming from a van[dont get some ppl started] lol or paging martians to drop fart bombs then so be it..... However when it comes to spies there usually not players that we place there as everyone knows spying gets boring but they are usually from a member in your alliance that hates leadership or realizes how bad they really are and is looking to hurt them or leave..... I do not consider using spies immorale

What I do consider immorale is lying, breaking Pacts/naps without diligent notice and disrespecting others....

As far as how I feel towards players I dont take anything personal.... Everything I do is in good fun and I dont hate the ppl we fight I usually wind up respecting them and in all honesty I have always felt good players want to play against one another or with one another.[with is so much better]

It is a game borys, one we play to win and nothing more at least for me

One last thing I am a grepo OG... Some ppl play to win WW and if we do great. but what good is winning WW if your bored out of your mind doing it. The forums are a way to keep it fun and if your alliances self destruct over a few forum post then thats sad

Silver your a sell out i enjoyed your post

AD takes pillow and suffocates borys

(paramedics arrive and resuscitate Borys)

I don't believe I ever saw you respect anyone on the forums outside of your group of friends. You guys used to trash talk incessantly on the forums, particularly some of our noobier players whenever they attack with swords or unescorted transports, etc. It wasn't good natured ribbing either. It was "look at this fool" and "these guys are terrible" (paraphrasing). I considered myself coming to the defense of people who were being bullied. I gave back what was given and then it got personal. Alpha dogs like to humiliate the "lesser" dogs in order to keep them down. I don't like that. I don't know who in GO said that I disrespected them but I do know that you can't please all of the people all of the time.

The reason for this chat is because I'm on the fence about whether to keep playing or delete my account. I really like this game and I think I'm very good at it. What I hate about this game is some of the people. Bullies, elitests, immature children, etc. Instead of having fun I more often find my self incredibly ticked off because of drama, in and out of alliance. I play this game for fun and if I'm not having fun then why am I playing?

As far as the spies go it's not like they are all just falling into your lap spewing information. As soon as this world started numerous members reported you contacting them in turn trying to get them to spy for you. As I stated above you can't please all of the people all of the time. If some members become disenfranchised they sure as hell knew who to turn to to cause the most damage. I'm not completely above spying. Back on Tau I had a spy in SA for a time. It started out with me trying to recruit him but him not wanting to jump ship surrounded by SA. The goal was to get him in which we did as soon as we cleared around him. I do think that spying is a lousy way to win, but hey, even Alpha dogs need to juice it every once in awhile to stay on top, no? I really don't enjoy losing but what I absolutely hate is trying my best and failing because someone untied my shoelaces. On top of that kicking me when I'm down. Something you do in spades.

Thank you for sharing. I hope we can be more mature and respectful in the future. Everyone.

(Passes the pillow to Exit Strategy) Your turn!

AD I hope you aren't serious about me being a "sell-out", I am still a BridgeBurner, and even after Watney rims me "I woke up to failed spy report from him in my inbox" I hope to be invited back to start all over again. I changed my tone here in these forums because the "Safe Room" thread, it's introduction, and it's pillow...as ridiculous as it seems to most in the context and the atmosphere of this game, was a bit of a slap in the face and a wake up call to me especially. Here, in these forums, I am a die hard Grepo fanatic, in game I have been a very successful founder of many alliances under many different names, my personal favorite of them all having been Bazaar Tactics in Lambda. But in real life, I'm a grown up and a college student, an aspiring substance abuse counselor. I realized I wasn't acting like that, not at all...I had got caught up in the drama and added more than a little bit to it and it was just time to stop and regroup for me. However, that does not mean that I am going to stop fighting in game with the same guile, tact, and ruthlessness as I have been. I am still in the top 20 of the server's Player/attackers rankings, and I intend to stay there...and I also intend to be here when World Wonder stage begins.

Bravo. Sun Tzu once said, "It is better to control your enemy with a pillow than with the tip of a sword. So that they may feel safe to lay their heads down at the commanders feet."

You have influenced, or persuaded me Borys, but you have by no means any measure of control over me, I am not your subject, your pawn, or your disciple, and never will I bow down or lay at your feet...your hubris reminds me of a saying from my own teacher...perhaps you've heard it..."Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall." ~Proverbs 16:18

You guys need to save all that sun tau quotes . No body cares that you read the book. It does not apply to grepo. This is a game and spy's are apart a very underhanded part of it but still A PART. I use them so i can't be a Hypocrite . Moving on AD and BB have guile but to me lack guts. You win by infiltration and subversion rather than strategy and tactics. And in this game you moves mimic a sneak thieves . Where my approach is I got a gun and you know I am coming... Hahaha your turn AD

Actually, I totally made up that quote. Phaedo is probably steaming. Also, there's little doubt that we all here have guts and guile. No judgments please. No casting dispersions. Just expressing feelings. Thank you for sharing. Can you share any personal situations that you and AD might have had that lead to this animosity? Vice versa of course.

I have no feelings about AD at all. I like a good fight and they are all fighters. I know many of BB from other worlds and will continue to work with them in different worlds they are all decent guys. This is never personal every body has a online persona and it is only a game... Not life

^wait, this isn't real life!!? well crap lol.

Also I agree, Sun Tzu can only be quoted so many times. I think we have all read the book anyways lol.

If you wanna good book to read, check out brotherhood of Warriors. Thats the only "pillow talk" your getting from me. Can we close this? This pillow talk thing is so dumb/bad it actually hurts me to see this..
