This. Japheth's post was great.

I don't see how mentioning the rez was off-topic, or maybe I'm taking Onasaki the wrong way. This thread is about how everyone feels about the orc sphere and mentioning an event that displayed at least one staff member's inability to differentiate between IC and OOC that very quickly turned me away from the sphere as a whole is very relevant.

Regardless, I enjoyed the orc playerbase a ton the first week and had a good time. However, I think the staff -side decisions concerning this sphere should be looked into more carefully. I appreciate the effort that staff has put into the game thus far and I hope the activity continues.

I'm an outsider. But I think the issue boils down to Striza not "following the orcish ways," essentially. Of course orcs(who have no loyalty to him, only fear), will go to orcs that follow the true orcish ways. It's a matter of "fearing Striza" vs. "loving acting like an orc." And if Striza encourages unnatural behavior(no infighting), then they'll go to the the orcs that encourage their ways. The bleedaway makes sense. He's squeezing too tightly, so he'll bleed orcs until he reigns in bad decisions, no matter how strong he is.

Most rebellions aren't "because I can win." They're on principles and ideals. This is just one of those(even if it is evil, orcish ideals).
