Thanks for taking the time to explain your point of view. Apparently we've run in to an instance when different time zone players don't know what the other times are doing. I believe Makrian le Sage is a European player as -- I think -- all LIONS are. Maybe if eventually there is clan based warfare, things will go differently.
Please allow me to explain something -- not to change anything you, or your clan, or your nation is doing -- but just so you know.
By the way, the following is just my observations based on playing with a particular group of Dutch players on the Global Server for a long time.
The core Dutch who play primarily during North American primetime -- the former Global players -- have for the most part been Dutch for years. We've seen the ebb and flow of our nation's fortunes. Over those years, we've learned that councils don't work. They also mean little. A bunch of roleplay around alliances, diplomacy, homelands, ports, historical ports, etc are sort of silly in this game as there is no government, no developed alliance mechanic, nor is there any way for nations to assure their members follow these agreements. But we do our best to follow them and expect those with whom we make an agreement to do the same. There's no single act of aggression or friendship that establishes war or peace for us. They're just pixels.
Ports, port ownership, and land are relatively unimportant to a nation that is never going to be the victory mark winner. So our attitude has always been help when it helps us (or is just fun) and attack those who need attacking (or because it is fun).
I really can't apologize that some Dutch took Guanica in violation of an agreement you had (or thought you had) with them since no one I know had anything to do with such an agreement. Bad communication sucks. But I do remember wondering at the time why Dutch were attacking up there even tho the port was NEUTRAL. Anyway, it looks like you got it back. Cool.
It's highly unlikely you will ever hear one of us beg you not to attack our nation or a specific port. Cojoro is a VNM port. Someone promised to give you something they didn't own. Sorry. That unknown Dutch player who promised you that didn't mention it to VNM either.
The game defines what is and isn't a nation's port by the existence of those ports being uncapturable inside a safe zone. All other ports are up for grabs.
So... one (four) port the Dutch or not. Or try to, or not. It will probably prove to be expensive and boring for you to do, but hey, as long as you're having fun. Since we don't particularly care for port battles, it won't change our game play much, but we'll probably show up for some.
I'll remind again, I'm only speaking from the perspective of a former global Dutch player. Who knows how the European based Dutch plan to proceed.
