So today there was a massive rebellion against the republic. This is Arkon’s perspective from it.
So to start off, this was planned for weeks in advanced consisting of the nations Arkon, Exercitus, Luxivitas, UNSC, Rebels, Stormbound, and NewQusmubia (New Qusmubia wasn’t rebelling). We planned a new alliance with a “better” set-up. It would have no nation in charge and be similar to a representative democracy. It has not advanced much more than that. We figured out that there was a spy among us, but we didn’t pinpoint who. Now, here is what happened today (from the view of Arkon).
The day started with Arulaun bringing notice to the rebellion. I talked with Emeris the night before discussing what I would do, not giving away what the other nations would do. That morning I ditched the new republic and was the first to leave the republic (UNSC was kicked before Arkon for other reasons the night before). Arkon was to neutral everyone except a few nations, being Ekatera and NewQusmubia. Later, Arulaun received false intel that Luxivitas was working with AltBandits (my sister is in AltBandits and allowed me to check their discord). Here is where it gets interesting.
UNSC was accepted into the republic because they regretted being part of the rebellion. Stormbound didn’t leave at all. Exercitus fell into chaos because their leader didn’t ask their members whether they wanted to leave. Luxivitas had the same fate. Rebels… I don’t think left. So in other words, Arkon was the only one who succeeded in leaving the republic, which wasn’t intended at all.
I was pretty furious that the other nations were too incompetent to successfully rebel. For the remainder of the day we stayed neutral until Candurous sieged our station. After some unimportant events, I gave in. The other nations failed at rebelling putting Arkon in a worse spot. We rejoined and here we are now. Here is what everyone learned.
What Arulaun and Emeris learned:
- Nation leaders will rebel if they dislike something; even if they have no real reasons.
What the other rebelling nations learned:
- The republic isn’t evil
What I learned:
- I’ve been too pessimistic towards the republic.
- Never trust nations without good plans or good leaders.
- The server is ludicrously biased towards anyone with more power than them.
So what I am saying is, most of this problem came from opinions about how an alliance should run. If you somehow end up in a rebellion, don’t stay with it unless you can unblind yourself from the bias in SL. Bias seems to always be the cause of these wars, so for the love of space whales, don’t be bias towards others. It only causes toxicity and wars. I will try my best to stick with the republic from now on and be less of a pessimist. If you read this entire post, thank you.
