I think this finals could be really fun for all parties. I expect the first "warzones" between South-East (ML-HIT) and North-East (Uollas). The second will be between South-West (Russia) and North-West (Dacia).
As leader of ILS I would just like to recommend everyone to not believe childish gossip.
We've been upfront with our allies since day 1, haven't had any "friends" in other allies who hand over artifacts at will.
