The decision to step out of the WoT NAP was collectively discussed. The leadership of Freevale, and the Council of Aragon came to the same conclusions. The OP was a joint message, drafted by both GPunk and I.
But to further clarify Aragon's own position:
1. The current WoT system is not generating the PvP I think we all thought it would. It is far to difficult to defend towers, and far too easy to take new or replacement towers.
We believe that only the embarrassment of losing an alpha six tower, might actually bring defenders in for a fight.
2. We want to be able to respond to acts of provocation that have more meaning than capturing undefended towers.
3. I'm tired of trying to herd cats. The Nation of Kathalphas is chaotic, and we have attracted and are looking to attract even more rebellious types, who crave PvP and of course, husk looting opportunities.
Please note.... This is not a declaration of a free for all on our part. I personally will only take the towers of a settlement that has willfully provoked either Freevale or Aragon.
4. We are opening up our mercenary services, immediately beginning with February 1 or Month 2 of KS EE.
Thanks; that was exactly the clarification I was asking for. I saw an announcement that the Nation of Kathalphas had done something, and it seemed to me that there was an implicit claim that the Nation was claiming the ability to nullify an agreement of a member settlement. Now I see that every member settlement of the Nation of Kathalphas withdrew simultaneously.
The distinctions are subtle but very important.
