    • I don’t betray people and I will actively fight people that betray other people if I can although if someone is being toxic I will respectfully withdraw my troops from their lands, cut all diplomatic ties and honorably fight like Gentlemen.

    • If they are not very useful and someone else wants to be my ally, I will kick them from the coalition and basically, they will be on their own. If they are toxic, that's another story.

    • I do not tend to betray my allies, I have betrayed a coalition for my survival as they did not help me with even 1 unit fighting another coalition but I think that was justified. I only betray when betrayed or when wronged, if they are inactive I do not count that as a betrayal.

    • i dont do betrayals.. never did that.. only time i did was when one coalition mate went afk. Though i will betray when the coalition is actively trying to be passive or if my coalition mate dosent deserve the coalition

    • "Betrayals" are not that simple as any of these options of the vote. I betray other players very often, sometimes even my coalition, but often i just gain the trust of an other player, make him attack my target, then i conquared 2 pieces of land with minimal casualites. The point is that "betrayals" shall go every time according a plan, if i have intrests to cooperate with an other player i would certainly not betray him, even if that person is the most hated person in the game.
      Also betraying coalitions become very important in the early game. Usaly at the start of the game everyone is rush to join a coalition. If you do the same, you gain valuable informations, and with a betrayal you can make sure to grow faster at the expense of your neighbours, who would be only barriers as allies.

      so my answer, that i betray others only if it is the logical move
    • I never betray anyone because I have been betrayed before (many times) and I know how it feels. My sense of honor will not permit me to act that way. Not only am I absolutely loyal to my coalition or allies but also to any agreement I make.

      Of course, having been betrayed before I am always wary. If I have concrete evidence that someone has or is about to betray me then I feel all agreements are null and void. Also if a player becomes unresponsive and a reasonable amount of time has passed, then I view that the same as the position going inactive and all agreements are off. Doing nothing when you have agreed to do something is a betrayal.

      I will fight to the last breath to fulfill my commitments.

      same here.
      But courage which goes against military expediency is stupidity, or, if it is insisted upon by a commander, irresponsibility.

      exactly! This is how Diplomacy works, not like how Mongolia operated in my Ma-Clique game! You must be a CoW God
