As many of you have noticed, my town of Stromenveich has waged war against Siliconia. Not a single one of you know how it started, and I shall share the tale and begin it with one fact: I am in the wrong. I assume the story starts around a week or two after Tech joined. By his attitude and habit to gloat, he was not very likable, however, it was my hypocrisy which brought our towns to the state they're currently in. I had been working on my house, eventually to be Stromenveich's starting point, when TheTechGeek245 had started bragging about his redstone skills. I had requested to see his home, in which he had lights with no redstone directly connected to them. I had asked, "How do you do this?", and he responded with "That's why I am The Tech Geek!", I decided to look it up, and found out that redstone can travel vertically through a block. Such simple knowledge that Tech made out to be genius! I was outraged! Too blinded to realize that I was just as foolish, and if not, more so. That was when I decided to run Tech through a series of tests. Asking him about redstone, command blocks and such. It ended with me explaining a chicken grinder I had made in singleplayer, and how I would pay him some rupies if he made one similar to it. The device was simple when I originally made it, but I could not remember the details. It had been several chickens in a 4x1x4 room with walls of dispensers and floors of hoppers. It had been connected to a three minute timer that activated 4 dispensers to shoot fire charges 3 times, and then 4 dispensers to shoot eggs 6 times, 5 seconds after the first. When he said he could do it, I was excited. If he failed, I was better at redstone. If he succeeded, I get a chicken grinder. The outcome was the foremost. I had paid him 5,000r for the materials, but the machine produced not eggs, nor cooked chicken. He said he fixed it, which he did not, and I was quite upset. Then, I came up with a dastardly idea! I had started the town of Stromenveich, and it needed publicity, and TheTechGeek245 had a town as well... I then posted on the forums, an advertisement. For Stromenveich. It had been planned to take Siliconia down just a bit, but ended up giving publicity for BOTH our towns. I had long since gotten over my jealousy over Tech, and proposed an Alliance. He had wanted to make an Empire and be it's leader. I was to have none of that. He started bragging about all the ways his town was better, and I argued with him. I noticed several things about him. 1: He is able to rack up an unbelievably large amount of cash when need be. Originally, I thought he had cheated or stolen funds from his town. Until I remembered he was able to sell a used legendary shovel for over 35,000r. He also had a flaw: He was a bad builder, and had openly told me his plans of copying someone's build. I had jumped to conclusions, exaggerated a bit, and ended up causing a war both annoying, and embarrassing. Stromenveich was supposed to be a town of class, style, maturity, and here was it's leader, filled with hubris and bickering like a first-grader. Appalled at my own actions, I decided to make a confession, and an apology I am sorry, TheTechGeek245, you have won. If my town members wish to leave, I understand.
