ASPERMONT, WESTERLANDS- Local Florida man Irishkaiser realizing there’s nothing that needs his major attention or support or you know… WORK… After about two weeks or so of peace since the Leadership of the 501st was convicted decides to tour the South for the first time in… Well… Forever, really.
“Hakuna matata!” he told the reporters on why he’s in the South “It’s great. All I do is just sit around, relax on eyechat and just hang around with the locals. I love just hanging around the beaches to check out on all the premium girls that spawned in with their colored leather bikinis. And the parties.. Woo. I tell ya, it can get wild here in the South. I tell ya, it seems like half the premium women try to kill me.”
This overworked man who always had to solve problems the convicted cyclone_43 generated, whether it be quietly winning wars for them, resolving issues such as unfounded claims or even supplying them with intelligence and or supplying his adventures has really earned his well-deserved rest and relaxation. The elated mood of internal peace and not having to wake up to a new issue every week or so isn’t just shared by him alone as members of the Grand Staff got more relaxed with a laid back playstyle, not having to deal, investigate or put time and effort trying to figure out some bitch ass fuck up or some witch hunt over a bunch of guys who said something mean and then the other guy took it the wrong way.
Irishkaiser - In the past articles, we have always encouraged people to do the right thing or choose the right path. However, some people have a twisted idea or form of “doing the right thing” and maybe it is ignorance on our part to expect them to know what the right thing is or whatever “honor” is supposed to be.
Tell them to do what’s right, and a lot of them just make shit up in their heads to justify their bullshit asinine decisions because it was right. The most common mistake people do when they think they’re “doing the right thing” is that they prioritize theirs as the only way and everything else shouldn’t be taken into consideration or account.
Radical Islamic Terrorism or for example, puts their sect of Islam above all other viewpoints or considerations. This is on par with enforced multiculturalism that seeks to destroy unique individual groups, for the “good” that is a world “free of races”. Does a certain ethnic group not have a right to exist or be unique to its own? Why bother saving species of animals then when they should all mix and become one form of sparrow?
A more specific but non-ideological example is the difficult choice of deciding who to save with a final option. Imagine you can only feed one group of people, and you have to choose between the two. Try to feed both, and you both starve. I know some of you would attempt to feed both and kill us all, but that’s OK as long as you feel good..? What?
Many know what they’re doing is wrong, many just try to hide, deny or run away from the truth but others legitimately believe in what they do. Take for example Godlikespie’s hand in getting the void bow nerfed. He thought he was doing the game a favor but he did not take into consideration everyone else and so immediately went to an admin and used his connections to change it. His viewpoint was very narrow but he seriously thought he was doing the right thing.
Then there’s Cyclone_43’s so-called “secession” or a rump session. I ask any of you, those who are familiar or prefers democracy as the basis of government(at least in principle). What would you call a small group of people who decides, away from everyone’s eyes without consulting or bringing it to a referendum, after kicking out and getting rid of opposition even though the vote was 1/1(regardless)?
That is not democracy. That is an illegitimate process in the shadows, deciding for everyone without their consent. If it was a proper referendum with informing voters of the facts and giving them enough time to think and decide, you all know we would have respected it. Like we respected Rebuffed’s leaving, meanwhile… Cyclone on the otherhand… Kept egging us on him. Doesn’t that sound like some form of oligarchy?
Then there are those who are still ambiguous to me, but still fanatically devoted to their ideas which are pure fucking selfish that anyone who harbors them knows they have their own underlying agenda but at the same time, they act on them with such fanaticism, that they really want to tell people they’re doing the right thing. Nalacion, as some of you may know, petitions to change the game in a way that suits him and only him. Because if he can’t have it, no one else should. He’s also the kind of guy that breaks his own rules all the time and only enforces it when it suits him.
There are many countless others in Shotbow and or MineZ that demonstrate such hyper-simplified ideas of “good” and “evil”. To them, it’s not good and evil, it’s “friends or strangers/enemies”. They would naturally prefer their friends, even if they are evil or have done bad stuff. It irks me when they try to justify and their only reasons are because they’re friends and not at all for any basis of morality or virtue.
So, how does one know what is right? Well, I can’t tell you that right away because I don’t know what the situation is. But I have a walkthrough on any situation that helps me narrow down choices. Here is my guide:
1) What are the facts? What is the truth? What happened?
2) What is at stake? Is it important? Who are affected?
3) Will my agency end, expand or not affect the issue?
Agency here, meaning an individual’s independent choice or actions can affect an issue. Sometimes, doing nothing is the best thing. Other times, action must be taken. But only take action when you know. It is a wise man who knows what he does not know and that to admit ignorance is no sign of weakness or stupidity. To admit ignorance is smart.
There are many moral systems that involve action, non-action or some form of karmic calculation. I personally prefer and believe in the right of self-determination. I don’t believe that one rational side is inherently bad or good, I believe that there are a clash of interests or differences. Two populations fighting over food for the survival of their own population or if one population controls an important objective making the other population subservient to the other is an example of two things that may only be resolved by force from the other.
But what I personally consider evil is when one seeks to remove freedom of choice or options from others. Both my friends and enemies, I personally believe should have their own choice. THIS HOWEVER LETS ME JUSTIFY KILLING THEM.
BECAUSE IF THEY CHOSE THEIR ETHICS AND DECIDE TO POINT A GUN AT THE WORLD, THEY’D BE IN FOR A REAL WORLD OF HURT THAT I’M PART OF THE WORLD THAT SHOOTS BACK.
Still though. Some people really make poor, poor choices. Choices so poor that might makes right is probably… The only real justification for anything. The dominion of the sword.

A TRADE RUN TIME TO SHOW SUPPORT FOR EUROPE. This trade run was a bit exciting, especially in the battle at Romero in the end. No casualties were suffered as the UTC punched through geared premium lines effortlessly thanks to a Striker inventory.
This trade run in its preparation has also demonstrated the perfection GunOverdose has done in gearing up the Strikers. A Striker can be geared up within 1 hour at best(including lucky spawns), making it a very viable inventory to mass-produce. Still, the amount of effort it takes is considered “Eh, whatevuh.” for basic combat operations.
GunOverdose however insists on bringing his Ferrari in almost every combat situation to show off just how rich he is. We should not be blinded and assume that giving everyone a Striker inventory is the way to tactical supremacy as the last time we fielded a squadron of Strikers, the one who wasn’t adept was killed just the same as the others. It still requires a form of specialized training and or getting used to. Assuming however that UTC is able to field a squadron of competent Strikers, chances of victory are in the opinion of this author, almost assured. But nothing is ever assured in war. The ideal situation for the ideal inventory with the ideal organization and doctrine is still the best.

BROTADO IS A HERO. HE CAME IN THERE AND TRADED… WITH A POOR OPPRESSED MAN… OH THE HUMANITY… SUCH CRUELTY… BUT BROTADO CAME IN THERE AND GAVE HIM A LONE SWORD.
This trade entry was paid for and customized by Brotadochip.
A 5v5 Battle of the Bs. Team Boyevaya vs Team Brotadochip. Which balls for brains you think will win? COMMENT BELOW IN THE COMMENTS. DON’T FORGET TO HIT THAT LIKE BUTTON AND SUBSCRIBE FOR MORE YOUTUBE VIDEOS.
1ST ROUND: DEVIL’S CASTLE - BROTADO WINS
Team Boyevaya started out as attackers with Brotadochip on defense. Brotado that COWARD ordered us all to retreat to the final defensive line instead of trusting Irishkaiser’s amazingly built functional and aesthetically pleasing defenses.
Boyevaya’s team took the first line of defense WHICH WAS SHAMEFULLY GIVEN UP WITHOUT A FIGHT, but could not advance to the second line because of supporting fire from the last line. The time they took exposing themselves to fire favored the defenders on attrition. Team Boyevaya punched through the 2nd line and advanced together up the tower but after a fight of attrition that wore down TEAM BOYEVAYA, TEAM BROTADO ordered a counter-attack on the weakened Boyevaya force. The melee involved 2 BROTADO CASUALTIES but Blohrentz of Team Brotado killed all of them. Seriously. It was a pentakill.
2ND ROUND: DEVIL’S CASTLE - BROTADO WINS
With both sides switching, Team Boyevaya quartered themselves in a similar position the defenders took in the first round, but was unfamiliar with the layout and its proper distribution of forces. Team Brotado’s forces stormed the gates, taking minimal damage and using heal kits to heal each other. They later began securing the 1st and 2nd lines under ineffective fire from Team Boyevaya.
Irishkaiser took up a flank that would later turn out to be vital as Team Boyevaya charged on that flank, bringing with him a large portion of his men to bear down on a still re-organizing Brotadochip. Irishkaiser however held the flank and alerted his teammates, blunting Boyevaya’s attack and giving time for Team Brotadochip to counter-attack and a melee favoring Team Brotadochip ensued. Both sides took casualties but a 4v3(Brotado/Boyevaya) was the result at the end of the encounter.
Team Brotado re-organized inside the castle while Irishkaiser stood picket and held the flank once again. Irishkaiser spotted incoming Boyevaya forces and prevented them from advancing past the 2nd line of defense, driving them back and Brotadochip’s counter-attack came out and eliminated two of them before chasing one in a river fight.
3RD ROUND: LAZERVILLE - BOYEVAYA WINS
Both sides were later teleported to Lazerville where both leaders are unused or unfamiliar with the map. Team Brotado started East, while Team Boyevaya started West. Both sides began visual contact at the middle of the town and started feeling each other’s weak and strong points. Team Boyevaya made a wide maneuver and Brotado responded with his own maneuvers.
This war of maneuver lasted about 10 minutes as both sides were playing cat and mouse. Boyevaya stationed himself between the tavern and the farmland as Team Brotado made the decision to attack. The attack itself initially went well but the fighting lost cohesion and this is where some players started to shine. One player from the 18th Regiment, the other from the 93rd… Two unknowns began carrying the team out of nowhere and both sides were pretty shocked in the after-action report both saying “They’re good. I never knew they were THAT good.”
The fighting took both sides all over the town and into the mountains. Everyone from Team Brotado died and Team Boyevaya only suffered one casualty.
Need shit comrade? Da. I have shit for you. Within the week though.
A new regular regiment of the Line: the 18th Regiment of Arbreton. The Regiment’s Captain explains his reasons, particularly in his disgust of the regiment as its stain of past actions involving a huge amount of bullshit he had to personally deal with and experience made him resolve to not at all hold any form of connection, tradition or link with them but to make up and start on his own.
That’s the way we forecast it. But something awesome might happen for all we know.
1) Trade Run Next Week.
