It is with a heavy heart that i can officially confirm that i am now a single man. After a wonderful 10 months together, myself and Tor have decided to go our separate ways.

I'm on the rebound. An ideal partner would have a GSOH, share my love of Liam Neeson, be willing to discuss the Pasteurisation Process long into the night and least importantly, be an exceptionally talented Warlight player.

You must also be a football fan. (that's PROPER football - not that poor excuse for a game yanks play.) Manchester United or Chelsea fans need not apply.

If your interested in becoming my soul mate, send me a PM in any game we have played together. All my love,

Mike

Speaking as a Texan, I want to humbly point out that "Yanks" can be a highly offensive term (my grandmother, a poor Arkansas dirt farmer), called them "damnyankees", as her mother taught her. To the original point, I'm sure you will find someone, because I feel your pain. 2 of my friends (Chaos and V) are already partnered up, so I am constantly badgering my other friends to buy a membership so we can join up. Would prefer to play with someone I know in real life, just makes it more interesting. Unfortunately, while $30 isn't much, it is a lot for us here.

I see the word "yank" is quite contentious! i get called a pom / limey all the time on here!

I generally refrain from calling Brits limeys, unless I am drunk and/or it's one of my good mates. I don't say pom, either, but that is mostly because I don't want anyone to mistake me for an Aussie criminal. You calling all Americans "yanks", especially ones who have never been (or want to go) to real Yankeeland, is like me calling you Welsh - a major insult, yeah?

officially, welsh is a nationality rather than an insult. but welsh and scottish people do feel left out when septics equate britain with england.

Haha, officially Welsh IS indeed a nationality. But call a Brit Welsh, and see how they like it!

That's not offensive in the slightest! calling a Welshman or Scot English on the other hand might would be to them!

As a non-native-English-speaker, I feel very much left out.

Mike, I'm too looking for 2v2 ladder partner. My stats are not quite as impressive as yours, but I have under my belt a case of reaching to finals of 2v2 membership tournament (which we, unfortunately, have lost, and my partner is unwilling/unable to buy membership himself).

(Also, I'd rather not play too many games at once - I like to think carefully, and real life is demanding. I'm not sure how this setting works in 2v2 ladder, but when I used to play the 1v1 one, I had it set to the minimum possible number of games at once - 2 or 3, I think.)

If any American gets upset over being called a 'yank' then he is a wanker and needs to get over himself. It's a harmless term and hardly pejorative.

Not the first time I've been called a wanker, not even today. Still, it's a bit annoying, as I probably dislike Yankees more than any Brit could. My great-grampappy didn't fight at Antietam for the glorious (if very, very misguided) Confederacy to see us slandered by calling us Yankees. Yankees don't even make barbeque!

yeah texasjohn, the opposite is the case really. im english but live in wales, and im reluctant to respond 'wales' rather than 'england' when asked what country im in. i dont really expect any foreigner to have even heard of wales, never mind conflate it with the whole of britain.

If this were 50 or 100 years ago, I could see the angst over being called a yank. But it's not... its been 150 years since the American Civil War. I think we can let bygones be bygones.

And it's not like the term yank is from that war... it stems from the US Revolutionary War in which the southerners played a major part.

So, Mike, who do you support? I'm a Man utd fan ;)

I'm gonna stay out of the civil war stuff :P I know it gets messy, Irish politics is still dominated by the civil war, as in, the only real difference between the two largest parties was.which side they were on during the civil war. I know, it's retarded. Welcome to Irish politics.

x, I know what you mean with people equating Britain to England. The worst though, I find, is when Ireland is included in Britain. I'm not a nationalist or anything (I could be hear a while if I start talking about nationalism lol) but we have been a sovereign nation for nearly a century now. I guess I just want people to get things right :P

True enough Richard, and it's not like I am actually furious. And while the term "yank" may come from the Revolutionary War, my people weren't involved in that, as far as I know. I equate it more with the Civil War, as Texas was in the Confederacy, although I don't think anyone could refer to Texas as "the South". The Middle Earth map has the regions of the US about right.

Anyways this is getting totally off topic, so let's allow this horse to die in peace. Good luck finding a reliable 2v2 partner, Mike! You are far more trusting than I!

One last thing, @Mike:

I have many English friends, and when we are all taking the piss, the WORST (read: funniest) thing I can call them is Welsh. Although when I am doing so, I usually add "sheep shagger" to the end. As far as I have seen, calling an Englishman Welsh is a pretty decent insult.

What an interesting discussion. As a Southerner, I grew up referring to anyone who lived north of Northern Virginia as a "Yankee," (not necessarily pejoratively though). Then I moved to northern Maine, where crusty old-timers use the word proudly, but usually as an adjective: ("Yankee know-how," etc.). However, to them, a Yankee is a New Englander. A fisherman from Maine would never refer to someone from, say, New York, as a Yankee.

Incidentally, growing up we had a neighbor from Wales who proudly claimed that the Welsh were the only people on the British Isles not to be conquered by the English. I don't know UK history enough to know if he was right, but I do know Wales is part of the British Empire, so maybe, they agreed to be annexed rather than fight?

You don't need to join Paypal. Just click the link that says "Pay as PayPal Guest" and it gives you a standard payment form just like any online purchase would.

Strange, I had no problem buying a membership with no PayPal, but then again I am relatively naiive and trusting. As far as I know, and like Fizzer explained, it is just like any other online purchase with a credit card. It's easy, and relatively cheap, although I imagine that depends where you live. In the US, $30 is almost nothing, but where I live you can live on that for a week if you try. It's why so few of my crew have joined.

About the conquering wales bit - The Anglo-Saxons never managed to conquer Wales (or Cumbria my birthplace hehe). But the French / Norsemen (William the conquerer) conquered the Anglo-Saxons (originally German / Dutch chaps) in 1066 and his dynasty later conquered the surrounding nations on the islands and incorporated them into what eventually became Great Britain. Wales was indeed annexed after the defeat of the great Owain Glyndŵr the th century the principality was passed to the next in line to the English throne has a hereditary fief hence the crown prince's of England being known as the Prince of Wales until they ascend the British throne at which point the next in line becomes the Prince of Wales (or Princess)
