I've noticed on a few signatures that they say "I stand with Twankus." What does this mean? Just hoping someone could clarify. Thanks!

Short answer, the Great Atavism created a character name Twankus who is the commander and designer of Twanks LLC. (the manufacture of the Twank frame)
So STAND WITH TWANKUS!
if not... Then for Heaven's sake don't stand AGAINST him. lol :lol:

I just want to take the opportunity to say that, in retrospect, Twanks and the budget frame wars that followed were the best thing that ever happened to MF0.

They brought a breath of fresh air and creativity to the community like nothing else before or since!

I've definitely noticed that Thread before... Dunno how I missed the awesome Lore there, though. It's too bad I wasn't around at that point, though, because I think I have a design or two that would've fit right in.

I definitely won't stand against him, but I can't say the same for ÆILOS Industries... Or PROXIMATION. Between the two, though, PROXIMATION would more likely win, because I think a Beta Skull with an Obliterator Cannon would stand some chance. Which I absolutely MUST build now... Then again, ÆILOS has that stealth technology for the ASF, so who knows?

EDIT: Obliterator Cannon Beta Skull turned out pretty cool. Although I don't know why PROXIMATION declared war on Twanks LLC, probably the worst idea in all of history.

If you only read that one thread, you'll also miss a boatload of the other interconnected characters/adventures/creations. Someone wrote up a thread to try to collect all of those links together. Hopefully someone not browsing on a phone can dig that one up for you.

And once again I wish I could have been around back then to participate... The Actium might not be a bidget frame, but its versatile enough that I would've included it...

Get ready for another wave of corporate espionage guys. Chameleon Core (my faction, who are pretty much a bunch of ijad + humans idealists trying to make everyone cooperate) would likely be enemies of Twanks LLC.

So, TLDR I don't stand with Twankus.

Well, I have two factions, one of whom is unaware of the existence of Twanks LLC, and one which dislikes them. The second faction, PROXIMATION, currently has little to no chance of succeeding.

So, TLDR should our factions team up?

Maybe, if PROXIMATION accepts Ijad and are decent people.
