Not quite. The People of Paradis just left Marley. And Marley has been sending stray Titans at them for years after that.

So if that text blurb was accurate, Marley overthrew the Eldians then used the remanining Titans to pick fights with all the other countries?

When they aren't using the Titans to disrupt the ghetto they threw most of the Eldians into, at least.

Reminder that the unique Titans are transferrable and have a time limit of 13 years, so with the 4 year time skip Zeke and Reiner are near the end of the lifespan.

I do not like this timeskip and/or cut to a bunch of new cast members that we're doing, I'd rather just see what Eren and the rest of the crew are doing.

They way I see it, these days there's a war on, right? And ages ago, there wasn't a war on, right? So, there must've been a moment when there-not-being-a-war-on went away, and there-being-a-war-on came along. What I want to know is, how did we get from the one case of affairs to the other case of affairs?

So they have been sending their big important Titans as these guys that said "just leave us the gently caress alone" while they were in the middle of a war with at least one other country. They are down to 5 now

Paridis was just were the Eldian King and his followers went to, when the King got tired of running an Empire. Then wiped his people's memory of there ever being anyone outside.

Why is there always poo poo for this guy to throw? Is that his skill? I kinda figured he just picked up rocks and poo poo the first time because thats' what was around and would gently caress people up thrown at high speeds.

Big new in WAR today. It's been discovered that Titans of Marley are weak to train guns. The governor lady said "I"M SENDING IN MORE TRAIN GUNS"
