A neutral Belgium in 1905 is fun to see. Also glad to see what whinging in the forum isn't a successful strategy.
Whining? Who complained about the unfairness of it all? Or blamed their own failures on others actions? I've owned my failures. I've not attempted to blame France for me my losses. Strange definitions one uses for badly spelled words.

I was thinking of referencing the Game of Thrones clip.

But yeah, Merriam Webster does the job too.

Confidently incorrect much?

I stand corrected about the existence of a word that still fails to apply. Congratulations.

I'll quote myself:

Christ there a lot of people who seem bound and determined to read what was not said. (And I think this is the whiny thing I've said.)

You didn't answer my question. It wasn't rhetorical. Why would you make this thread COMPLAINING about a so-called 'griefer' (who appears to have just bene playing the game) if the reason were not to whinge. You pointing out that it's the first time you've interacted with a griefer is hardly forum worthy if you ask me. And, I really could go back through this 3 page forum to find every single complaint you've made, but it would take too long.

I maintain, that this thread is not a complaint. I did not seek commiseration. I saw something that I had never seen before. It surprised me. I chose to speak of the matter. Much as I have seen others speak of matters players actions and attitudes in this game (and hence how I learned how to deal with a great many situations). It is genuinely you who read a complaint INTO my posts. Please feel free to show what you call a complaint. PLEASE.

I even learned something. I learned what an Armored Turtle was. Just in time to meet one, in another game (actually, he's changed direction finally, after games years worth of beating his head into my wall. So, you know... YMMV.)
But, having seen a Armored Turtle in the wild (I think) I can now say that the thing I spoke of was not an Armored Turtle (as I understand it.)

Given that the front page of this forum (OT) goes back to March, and the other forums go back even further on their front page, I think the definition of “forum worthy” has to be “literally everything.” The community should try to have more discussion, not less.
