These hadn't been posted in some time and given the hits on laf netters (other alliances have gotten the love too, i'm not complaining :) ), and now laf demos stocking, it's a good time for me to post ours publicly.
I haven't posted much in an official capacity for laf in the last year because I haven't wanted laf to have a really hardcore or strong voice here, I just wanted us to be able to mind our own business and have no grudges with anyone. Now I'm again publicly stating this like I did during the 3 war sets -
Laf is a netting alliance. We had some wars and were impressed by all that we warred but we do really like to net. As such, we have to have terms that deter people from grabbing us. Lafers in my era (this is going back several sets now) have never tried to hit tagged alliances (and the few that fluffed up and did were flamed incredibly hard, and reps and retals were promptly authorized) as the bot land has been fair and coordinated land trading has also been an equitable and available way to get land.
All alliances are always free to post and impose whatever terms they wish on retals because that's the nature of them - they are "retaliations" on "aggressions" and by definition they can't be "land trading" if they aren't coordinated and in the best net benefit of both countries involved.
Moving forward, our retal policy for all grabs on us is 200% l:l. These retaliation terms (again it's important we remember that retal means retaliation and it's an inherent defense on an unwanted aggression) are posting publicly in a clear effort to deter alliances from hitting us ( as we want to mind our business as I've continually stated and shown), and any hits moving forward will be retalled in such a manner. If any alliances want to impose a 1000000000% l:l please, go ahead - we won't be hitting you that's for sure! (once more, the whole point of retal terms, freely set by anyone who doesn't want to be hit and simply wants to mind their own business!)
in good faith, the current unretalled hits will be retalled l:l and the demo stocking that lost 75m projected nw from the hits will not even require reps. this is again in good faith, to stop this madness. this game is awesome, and it's pretty fundamentally important that adults that want to war should be able to war and adults that want to mind their own business and net should be able to do so as well. laf wants to net, these are our terms, wishing you all the best the rest of the set.
