Aw but clearly it is you who is not in the know.Adawulf wrote:"That all said, I am glad to be at war again. I wish they had declared on us before attacking, especially after we honored our alliance even while they were attacking our sister House, but sadly that was not in the cards."
Jaxi obviously you are in the dark about what actually started the war between H9 & H1, or maybe you are in the know but don't want to say it here on a public forum. What actually happened was...
We were in the process of finishing off Wrath & Retribution when H1 suddenly began recruiting them. These new H1 members such as AussieDozer, Tigershark, SirHamish, Biggerman and others were in some cases still attacking us, and monking us even after flying the H1 flag. H1 recruiting standards are very low these days and nearly all of the defeated WaR officers are now part of H1. Thus technically H1 broke the alliance and struck first.
What's even more interesting is a tip we received from an H1 player who told us that H1 was planning to attack H9 in 5 days. I still have the email if you are interested in seeing it sometime. Catch me when I'm online (which isn't often these days) and I'd be happy to send it. It was that tip, combined with the attacks from former WaR members wearing the H1 flag that actually started the war. Of course the 2nd age issue merely adds fuel to it, but it was not the initial spark.
Your House recruited Lord Shock, KezinDazel, Mikea, and Lyanna long before we recruited any of the H3 members. Furthermore, Lyanna was still attacking and monking us, and when we approached Krogith about it he simply did not care whether we attacked her or not. Thinking this mentality would go both ways, we recruited H3 members. Apparently it did not.
H1 had no such plan. I know this because I'm in their leadership thread. We were actually committing to H15 after Krogith failed to make good on his promise to fight them should we join the war against H19. We joined against H19, but Krogith failed to join against H15.
One more interesting point to take notice of is that your House consistently asked Voninski, our liaison with H9, to make sure H1 declared on them before attacking. That if we were going to go to war with you, that we at least have the courtesy to declare war on you first.
Again, we thought this mentality would go both ways. Millzy proved us wrong with that one.
