Joe opens this conversation with one of the other guys who have declared war in the more recent days...
Joe Phoenix > hi there
w1lds1n3 > Ah, the infamous Joe Phoenix...
w1lds1n3 > So, was there something you wanted to say? Or can I get back to my other business?
Joe Phoenix > yes im just curious
Joe Phoenix > why you have dec'ed the commonwealth
w1lds1n3 > Simple really, I agree completely with Zedrik's current position against you, and have aligned my corporation with his compaign against you.
w1lds1n3 > This kind of work isn't normally my corporation's cup of tea, but in this case I'm inclined to make an exception. I consider it charitable work.
Joe Phoenix > and why is that?
w1lds1n3 > Because you have no respect for anyone, don't know when to shut your mouth, fail to realize your shortcomings, and are utterly incapable of taking good advice that's offerred to you, so I'm not going to bother with that.
w1lds1n3 > Unless you're finally prepared to listen.
w1lds1n3 > Did I strike a nerve?
Joe Phoenix > i don't respect anyone? thats funny
w1lds1n3 > No, you don't.
w1lds1n3 > You disrespect your new members by not telling them what they're about to face, you disrespect the people who have tried to help you, and I've seen some of your private corp chats and such... lots of disrespect in there.
w1lds1n3 > And let's not even mention for now how you dragged Zedrik's family into this.
w1lds1n3 > That alone would be reason enough to dec you.
Joe Phoenix > oh ok im going to tell you what youv actuelly seen
w1lds1n3 > Oh, do enlighten me, Joe.
Joe Phoenix > we send a message to all new members and recruit them on the basis of this war
Joe Phoenix > "stand down as ceo" id not advice!
Joe Phoenix > and as for chat logs
Joe Phoenix > you must be an idiot to believe the ones zedrik cayne posts
w1lds1n3 > I have no reason to disbelieve him. Zedrik has always conducted himself professionally, and has never gone against his word. I've been working with him for a while now, so I would know.
Joe Phoenix > a professional wanker is not hard to achieve
w1lds1n3 > And this conversation we are having right now is confirming my belief in everything Zedrik has been saying about you.
w1lds1n3 > There may have been a time when we would have let this go with an apology and at least some sign on your behalf that you're trying to improve.
w1lds1n3 > I don't think I need to tell you that you've escalated this whole thing far beyond that now.
w1lds1n3 > Your only way out now is resignation. The sooner you come to terms with that, the better.
Joe Phoenix > i am currently on the verge of forming a massive alliance... what makes you think you can even touch me?
w1lds1n3 > We'll see how massive it is Joe. And I don't think you'll get Zedrik off your back that easily. I too have more than a few hundred million to throw away on war decs for my own amusement too, so you won't be getting rid of me either.
Joe Phoenix > see i can tell that zedrik obveasly has an obsessive mental problem...
Joe Phoenix > but i don't see you as that...
Joe Phoenix > i just see you as week minded... capable of following a mad man...
Joe Phoenix > reminds me of a certain somone...
w1lds1n3 > Hahaha... you go ahead and think that Joe, at least I'll know you're wrong. I'm in this because I dislike you every bit as much as Zedrik.
Joe Phoenix > no its because your week minded and believe the dripple zedrik comes out with
w1lds1n3 > Up until now this wasn't personal for me, continue down this path and you're only going to create another bitter enemy. You are warned.
w1lds1n3 > See Joe, this is the main problem you have...
Joe Phoenix > w1ld your a 2 bit noob... you cant touch me..
w1lds1n3 > You have an amazing ability to turn bad situations even worse
w1lds1n3 > And all you do is continue to bury yourself.
w1lds1n3 > Others have tried to help you.
w1lds1n3 > But you burn every bridge that's formed.
w1lds1n3 > Sooner or later you're going to find yourself with absolutely nobody to turn to.
Joe Phoenix > besides a large 0.0 network and a 20 corp alliance
Joe Phoenix > see w1ld your nothing!
w1lds1n3 > Ya Joe, prove it to me.
Joe Phoenix > zedrik is nothing
w1lds1n3 > You go ahead and create that alliance and show us all.
Joe Phoenix > you spam the forum all day annoying people and achieve nothing
Joe Phoenix > you can't touch me w1ld
Joe Phoenix > you don't see it..
w1lds1n3 > Maybe some day when you finally notice everything around you burns to the ground you'll realize how wrong you are. About everything.
w1lds1n3 > Until then, you just keep it up.
w1lds1n3 > I'm sure we can get 2-3 more corps to dec you.
w1lds1n3 > Hell, I might even subsidize the fees for the new entries.
w1lds1n3 > Getting expensive to dec you nowadays, cost me 8mil.
Joe Phoenix > with your pittiful 100m...
Joe Phoenix > you just don't get it..
Joe Phoenix > when the alliance is formed it will cost you 300m A WEEK to dec us
w1lds1n3 > And? You say that as though I can't afford it :)
Joe Phoenix > you cant lol
w1lds1n3 > Again, we'll see.
Joe Phoenix > so your little "group" could afford 1.2 billion a week to get there arses kicked
Joe Phoenix > 1.35 bill even
w1lds1n3 > We all have rich mains :)
Joe Phoenix > obveasly not
Joe Phoenix > 4 months and you'v done nothing.....
Joe Phoenix > its pathetic
w1lds1n3 > You obviously didn't clue into the fact that this is an alt.
Joe Phoenix > youv spent billions dec'ing us
Joe Phoenix > to no avail.....
w1lds1n3 > billions? hardly.
Joe Phoenix > yes
Joe Phoenix > not you personally
w1lds1n3 > You've lost far more than anyone on Joe's side has.
w1lds1n3 > *zedrik's
w1lds1n3 > And war fees are cheap.
Joe Phoenix > lets see
Joe Phoenix > 5 orps for 4 months
Joe Phoenix > 10m a week
Joe Phoenix > x 5
Joe Phoenix > so 50m a week
Joe Phoenix > 50 x 16
w1lds1n3 > A) Zedrik is the only one whos been at anything near constant war with you.
Joe Phoenix > 800
w1lds1n3 > So it's mostly only cost him 2mil per week.
Joe Phoenix > you just don't understand how war dec's work
w1lds1n3 > Yes I do.
Joe Phoenix > obveasly not
Joe Phoenix > but please continue to waste money
w1lds1n3 > 2mil per week + (x * 2mil) where x is the number of current wars
w1lds1n3 > pretty simple.
w1lds1n3 > And it's not a waste of money, I've got plenty to spare.
Joe Phoenix > and you will waste every fast penny befor we fall
w1lds1n3 > I make more money per week than I spend keeping a war up.
w1lds1n3 > Even if you had an alliance, I'd still be in the black.
Joe Phoenix > you just don't understand this do you
w1lds1n3 > I understand it perfectly Joe.
w1lds1n3 > You're the one that hasn't woken up to your reality yet.
w1lds1n3 > There is nothing you can do to end this. Besides resigning.
w1lds1n3 > Zedrik will not stop.
w1lds1n3 > If you don't want to resign, that's completely up to you.
w1lds1n3 > But I hope you're prepared to be dealing with him for a long time.
Joe Phoenix > this is what happens when an imovable object meet a bunch of stupid dickheads
w1lds1n3 > Because you've given him plenty of reason to keep this up, and not even for your in-game behaviour anymore either.
w1lds1n3 > No, it's gone far beyond that Joe.
w1lds1n3 > I'm absolutely astonished that you even have to ask why everyone hates you.
Joe Phoenix > well im sorry if the
Joe Phoenix > what is it
Joe Phoenix > 8 active players
Joe Phoenix > ar dec usw
Joe Phoenix > i really couldn't care less about what you think
w1lds1n3 > That's fine, that's your decision.
w1lds1n3 > You've made your bed.
Joe Phoenix > and its very comfortable thank you
w1lds1n3 > Good, because you'll be lying in it for a long time if Zedrik has his way.
Joe Phoenix > he won't
w1lds1n3 > I hate to repeat myself so often, but... we'll see.
