I know a lot of EDEN players are proud to see yet another enemy alliance crumbles. This weekend ONE went down the same path as Phoenix and PEACE.
But which path is that, exactly?
Every time those alliances were "disbanded" they re-emerged with basically the same core members. The only thing which had changed was the relative importance of the core members.
The underlying philosophy of PEACE/Phoenix/ONE is "might makes it right". They apply it both externally, by invading their weaker neighbors, and internally, by fighting for influence inside the alliance.
PEACE became Phoenix when Serbia replaced Indonesia. Phoenix became ONE when Poland replaced Hungary. Now Serbia's power is dwindling and just like the Indonesians and the Hungarians before them, the Serbs are discovering Spain and Poland aren't of much help. So it's time for a new alliance, with the same members, but a different pecking order.
Some eager beavers started to have wet dreams about Serbia and Hungary quitting ONE for good. By quitting it for good I mean Serbia and Hungary to actually drop their MPPs with Poland, Spain and FYROM.
For some naive souls that would be a great idea because they would love to be allied with Poland and Spain but they loathe Serbia and Hungary.
For another kind of daydreamers, that would be great because they imagine Hungary might get unleashed towards the former Soviet space while Serbia would follow their Real Life saying "when in doubt, hit a Bulgarian, that way you cannot be wrong".
Wake up guys!
None of that is going to happen!!!
ONE is dead indeed. But it would be replaced by TWO, a "new" alliance of the same eRepublik's bullies and juniors. TWO would be the same old PEACE/Phoenix/ONE, this time with Serbia and Hungary swallowing the bitter pill and accepting they don't call the shots anymore.
EDEN kicked the butt of PEACE out of North America, China and India. Then EDEN wiped out the floor with Phoenix. Then humiliated ONE by wiping out each of its members in spite of ONE being the most powerful alliance eRepublik has ever seen.
And in July, in spite of being deprived of the American MPPs and with ~50% of the Chines players firewalled out of the game, EDEN kicked butt again and ensured that all our members got a Congress.
So is there any shred of doubt we will have lots of fun with TWO?
EDEN, kicking butt since 2009!
