Insane rumor I say. (1)Why would they do that?? (2) Whats the point in doing that?? (3)They can’t change the game like that. (4)But that would be interesting.

The average score would be so much higher if that actually happens.

Who is this guy? What has he been smoking? Has
Big Chief Delphi been passing around the peace
pipe a few to many times to agree on the perfect
strategies with their alliance partners?

Where did this come from? I’m 99% sure this has
to be a joke. If it isn’t I’d be interested in who
“supposedly” let this cat out of the bag. (“Well I
was in this bar, I’d already a few too many drinks,
but I swear to you that I saw this guy that looked
JUST LIKE Woodie and he was saying something
about 2 bridges and staggering around like a
robot.”)

LOL that was fun.
