You now officially suck.

That is all.

Velax has gone over the reasons this was a stupid idea multiple times.

I was a little surprised when Bofeng spoke up, but his reasoning makes sense, too (surprisingly enough, based on our history with Cathay ;D ).

This really isn't a matter of "the first war that happened, and everyone dogpiled on the aggressors." No, you could have picked a war that would have been seen as perfectly reasonable. In fact, it's possible that you couldn't have picked a worse thing to do, though part of that is because of Coralynth's part in it, which I suppose you can hardly be blamed for.

I agree that what it resulted in kinda sucks for Sorraine, but I honestly don't see why you thought wiping out Ohnar West so soon after Velax very carefully kept them alive in the last war would be a good idea.

I agree with Indirik.

Even if Coralynth gave every reason in the word for Arcaea to get involved, they didn't have to. Wasn't Velax boasting about how he was OOC intent on making things fun on the continent? What Arcaea chose to do doesn't fit with that claim.

Sorraine and Coralynth declared war on OW. The entire island feigned morale outrage and declared war on Sorraine and Coralynth.

And just because there is such a thing as real moral outrage doesn't mean it is either right, nor what happened in this case. Please try an actual argument, rather than just a sardonic reply.

My only info is hearsay, but I do believe Delvin's character is actually morally outraged at the circumstances surrounding Coralynth's involvement.

How real the moral outrage is doesn't matter, that doesn't force everyone to jump in on a new gangbang.

The sanctions could have been different, and they could have been differed.

I was only speaking on Delvin's behalf.

Personally my character has spoken against our involvement. I also suggested that if we are truly outraged then our actions should only be against Coralynth. Due to geography we can do little against Coralynth, thus it would seem the "rational" thing to do is to prevent their goals from being completed by attacking their ally.

If Arcaea only ever has two options (do nothing and be bored, or roflstomp a realm and making FEI boring), then they really suck and don't care at all for the rest of the players.

How long would it have taken for OW to be destroyed? If they had decided to wait just a little to let that happen, and then striked Coralynth (and ONLY Coralynth), then maybe it wouldn't be as bad.

It really doesn't matter how badly Coralynth messed up, it should have been handled differently.
