1. I don't see why you should be afraid of hounds, we fought them in 20 players and won. You can't come here to say this, really. But somehow I understand you here, so yes, lets say you had a good reason. Thing that I never blamed you for. Even I told to hounds this recruits will make TSB jump with everything on them.Maybe if Flags and hounds had kept to their side of the agreement, stopped taking cities in shadies core and not spoken openly about what happens when we betray each other, you would have gotten a bit more respect. You cannot literally set up to betray someone and do it so openly then wonder why people are wanting to beat you with a pointy stick! Like seriously, were we meant to roll over and say "yes big papa, please set up behind us, prepare to betray us and oh would you like a cherry on the top?" Come on now.
As for Banda, I must applaud you. Never in my 10 years of playing this game have a found a group who have managed to get so many of theiir girlfriends involved. I tried to get my boyfriend to play once, he built half a city then got bored. Seriously, congratuations, a couple that plays together stays together.
2. This really isn't the reason, I am fighting TSB. You recruited my team mate and when I asked your diplomat why and what happened, he said "I haven’t spoken to one of your players and have no knowledge of it". That is embarassing tbh. No knowledge? Is your leadership talking between at least? Because I can't belive he didn't knew anything. He was the diplomat, recruiting from your allies wanna be is an affair that HE should be aware. Ehh, this kind of attitude is the one I hate. Incompetence and arrogance (he ended that convo being a victim lol).
