I’m the Pink Empire of Trensicourt. I was in a crippled position for a while. Thus, I offered you 2 alliances to back stab the more expansionist friends you guys have. I wasn’t very diplomatic in offering, because I was tired and desperate. However you guys didn’t take my hand. Now I can’t accept anymore allies. Maybe One? However me and my allies has made much progress in decimating the opposing fleet. NaN is losing ground and the UMC is fighting a much stronger empire of Gamba Nera.
There are two sides to the argument posed. Because I am a bystander to this conversation, I will make un-biased points. Allies or not, blind faith is what pushes men to trust. Trust is a big factor. Molotov’s standing fleet is subconsciously shredded Cheeze’s trust. This is because Molotov’s is in a very diplomatically sandwiched position. This does not help Cheeze’s motive. Cheeze’s motives are to expand outside the string of alliances. However Molotov’s fleet directly conflicts with Cheeze’s objective. Though they are allied, this standing fleet causes serious border friction. Thus, driving Cheeze paranoid and mentally exhausted. I assume this is because Cheeze fears being back stab during a campaign against Tusk. On other hand, having the fleet at one’s borders gives the owner a feeling of security. Because Molotov is allied with his neighbors, he is oblivious to the border friction his fleet provides. That is because Molotov policies are to have a fleet garrisoned by default and diplomacy doesn’t help either. Thus conflicting with Cheeze’s trust.
However I got to say that the tech difference is INSANE!
This is my technology.
This is my allies’ technology.
