Who cares when they declare war? They declared. It didn't last long enough for the opening hours to even make an impact.
Perspective is everything. For us, we just saw you leave without warning. Who knows, we passed it off as you're an odd individual and you had your reasons.

Then you formed your own House out of former House 8 players, many of which were specifically tagged as personal enemies. As we required House 9/8/3 refugees to check their baggage with the opposing houses prior to joining us, we demand the same of our foes.

Then you started monking the county we were taking. It was inevitable from there.

Finally, to add insult to injury, you pull your House into a conflict by razing one of our members, putting up caustic village names, and then going onto Vacation Mode. You brought 6 recently built factions into a war with the strongest House on the server, and then abandoned them. You sent them to the slaughter and then abandoned them.

Hence, you're a goof. I actually like you KPD, I just don't think you thought is one through. Even players outside House 16 thought you were acting strange.

At this point, there is no point in playing the game, was giving people something to think about before I leave. hence the village names.
as for "pulling factions into a war" this started long before I razed layanna. I watched h16 guys attacking my guys several times before that. I'm fairly certain they put swords over my faction at least long before that too.

But you're talking about the "biggest house" on the server... declaring war essentially on a house that is like the equivalence of 2 factions. Kinda like they did with the first h11 (one single faction by itself) I see a pretty troubling trend popping up involving gendry ;)

w5 is a dead world, its all good joining h19 and h16 and signing when your winning I would rather not join the bandwagon as it just pushes competetive people to a different world as there is no chance of stopping the big houses h9 and h16

Yeah,...it is looking that way. Dead and dying. In the last 5 weeks 820 players have disappeared from the Rank leaderboard and if you have a quick squizz at some of the lower rank players there are a lot without a single village, just hanging on by their last few points. Still, it will be awesome for everyone who is left, they can have their pick of the charters.

I'll do my best to help but sometimes I'll be wrong and you can bet there'll be someone along soon to point that out.

I dont want to take anything away from the winners though well mainly h9 and h16 they have done well but by smashing any potential oppoisition they just kill the server, That is why I hope at some point they reduce the amount of factions in a house and massively increase the reward for winning, yeah alot of the weak factions would probably be homeless but in reality they dont need a house as there never going to go to war, let all the big boys take over and make the world competetive again 6-8 factions per house imagine if h9 split in two and h16 spilt in two, then you have h10 thats looking solid you already have some strong houses, then you would have the ex h8 guys who could easily form a good house, already the world is looking mroe competetive. Again though just my opinion :-)

I gave you an excuse for that, KPD. You took in members that had not cleared their surrender with House 16. We were very, very forgiving during that period of time, as a lot of otherwise prime targets were simply forgotten as soon as they drop, but not everyone was given this luxury. No one declared war on you long ago. Trust me, I'm in the thread.

You pulled them in, KPD. Most all of them were unmarked. Now they're being slaughtered. You can't pin that on Gendry, that is your own fault. Besides, it wasn't Gendry that put the swords up, it was the individual faction generals watching you attack.

Sorry, but pulling together people who I've been friends with for 300+ days, seemed like a pretty good idea at the time... these people all dropped h8, because they had no issues with h16, nor a desire to fight a war with them, and h9... * half of them didn't even want to fight h9 to begin with. It made sense for me to gather people who were battered, to regroup and play with people who they know, so they could lick their wounds and rebuild to enjoy the game again.

I did everything I could, to make sure that everyone left h16 be... to stay out of the spotlight.
maybe my downfall, was that dying desire to get my achievement for a sherriff position.... not realizing that one sherriff position carried no honor anyway lmao.... But the mail I had with layanna, was friendly, and explained everything pretty clearly and friendly... after I got the achivement, I told her the monks would stop and I woudln't contest her county at all.


I appologized to some of my faction leaders, for pulling them into a steaming pile of sh** but I won't take 100% of the blame, because it's really ridiculous, that gendry can't find other things to do than smash people who had no reason to fight back. Nor did any of them have any ideas of "retaliating" against h16 for the previovus h16/h8 war... most of them were past it. Just to get demolished again.

either way, had I not gotten banned from the vent, I would have loved to come in and at least talk about it, but no one seemed all that interested in discussing anything they'd rather just dump on smaller houses. Like I said before, I sure hope gendry's guys enjoy playing with themselves, cos that's how its going. May as well just rejoin h1 and call it a day.

Again, perception is everything. You claim to have an excuse here, but you absolutely did not communicate it with anyone properly in House 16 prior or immediately following your departure. All we were left with was speculation and heresay.

It doesn't matter if they did not want to fight. Judging who wants to and who does not want to fight in the aftermath of a war when many dropped neutral and continued to fight us is difficult. The burden of protecting your members is on YOU by properly communicating with us and ensuring the members you recruited were cleared by the individuals targeting them and leadership. Let me sum it up: you don't just join another house and expect not to be followed by armies. You need to call of the dogs, and that burden is not on us.

You say Gendry again, which makes me believe you did not read my post after I explicitly stated that the individual factions put swords on you. Even that is irrelevant because if you think a House will not retaliate when you have initiated hostile monking and armies simply because you're much smaller, then you're delusional.
