Why would Don be a warlord? Where is any evidence for that? We don't know if Don popped as an heir, he was never a warlord. So in addition to no precedent for "stepping down", there is no precedent for appointing a former king to be a warlord. Really, this entire line of thought is just one huge ball of invented supposition.
And why would Caesar allow Don to live if Caesar became king? Why would you suffer the fool you had to overthrow? It makes no sense to just say Caesar would pack Don peacably off to some remote city to manage. If Caesar so greatly disagrees with Don's management that he rebels, why would he then allow Don to manage anything at all? You don't put someone in charge of something when you so violently disagree with their management capabilities, after all.

More speculation. As I've pointed out numerous times before, passing the CWL title seems to be an easy thing to do. Jetstone passed it from Ansom to Ossomer to Tram, with no apparent shmucker cost, unlike appointing a new heir. GK has passed it from pretty boy to pretty boy, and from Parson to Ansom to Parson without any noticeable impact. And GK seems to do just fine with a L2 CWL, so there is no reason TV cannot carry on with Vinny or any of the other TV warlords. If Caesar is the highest level TV warlord (which is speculation), will this impact the TV combat capability? Possibly. But there is strong evidence that a smart CWL is better than a high level CWL, and Caesar is a clod.
cheeseaholic wrote:Yes, disband Caesar, your best warlord in terms of stats, and likely strategy.
Best in terms of stats? Speculative. Best in terms of strategy? Also speculative. Vinny, at least, has proven himself to be a quick wit. Caesar has one single battle where he used non-standard tactics and won. And although he came out ahead against Stanley using standard TV tactics, he certainly didn't achieve the objective. So he's got an observed "batting 500" score. Great in baseball, not so much as a general.
As I've said before, the entire argument for keeping Caesar around seems to be based on one single premise: TV is doomed without him. And this is predictamancy of the most tenuous nature. Caesar isn't the sole saving grace of TV as you and others appear to position him. And most importantly, Don is the friggin' king and can certainly do better without a disloyal CWL than with one who has engineered a situation where the other warlords and casters need to check with Caesar before obeying Don's orders.

More thinking about what might be best for TV or Caesar, and ignoring the fact that the current king might have an opinion on the matter, and the power to influence this decision. And as for failed policies, look at who Parson is ordering destroyed: FAQ. Not TV. That is a clear policy win, as the entire reason for propping up FAQ appears to be to keep TV out of GK's radar and behind the scenes.
