[Redacted]- Allying with [Redacted] and [Redacted]?

Postby SSTLibertas » 04 Dec 2017, 16:14

Hi all,

I am starting a game as [Redacted] and I plan on allying with {Redacted] and [Redacted], and I have a DMZ with [Redacted]. I accepted a [Redacted] with [Redacted] and [Redacted], but plan on stabbing them down the road in favor of [Redacted] and [Redacted].

What are the strategic downsides to such an alliance? I notice that this arrangement is not very common in most games.

Thanks in advance!

Two small problems;

1. Discussion of active games is prohibited on the forum.
2. Hope the other 6 participants don’t read the forum:-)

Good luck in the game V

Well, this is a game occurring on a separate website (Backstabbr.com), so I'm not too worried about that.

In which case your probably fine, but I’m not a moderator so my opinion is irrelevant. Game # [Redacted] might make them a touch suspicious however:-)
