Cool story...you know every war ends the same right? Both sides usually lose a lot of assets so we are prepared for that and since materials and money is a joke at this point in Mortal's History losing a couple houses is not an issue.
Meduli alliance spanked ES. They called in EC after we originally asked EC to be in our pocket if the war went south.
EC sided with ES and now they're using them to keep us at bay so they can destroy IX. But since we can't destroy ES with EC backing them, and since Rhodri has shown their true colors, 420 will not help defend WSX's keep, but instead will devote time and resources to defending IX.
Once all assets are destroyed.... We'll then go on a counter offensive in the off hours of every guild involved.
It truly will be a learning experience, as I've never experienced this part of Mortal and can't wait to see the first gate / house / tower (of the enemy) go down.
Meduli escalated normal PVP then proceeded to try and gather EC when 27 ppl were to scared to siege ES.
Thus EC was involved. I am unsure to where the spanking as you call it was, but all i see is an escalation and then chickens with there heads cut off looking for a 50 man zerg. (hyperbole)
