Perspectives as to the validity of this label vary - Montrosians such as FlyingGMM have stated "believing that such a thing exists is the peak of [camaradultudor's] insanity arc", and that "the term implies that the WSSP is only an extension of Montrose and that the small countries of the West Sea banding behind us is 'interventionism' and the 'Montrosian world order'". In response to these comments, CreeperColder of Grove Tribe added a caveat: "[the WSSP is] a bloc that is coordinated, lead and primarily given its power by Montrose", with Taming Ocelots adding that "the WSSP was founded first and foremost as a vehicle for smaller countries to protect themselves from ozai by using Montrose as a deterrent... [and] would not exist if it didn’t have Montrose in it."
Since the term's inception, it has been used to decry Montrosian intervention in numerous situations with varying degrees of earnestness/sarcasm and varying definitions of what the "MWO" entails, if anything at all. As of 2/25/2023, the term "MWO" has been used 470 times across the main discord and ingame chats - roughly an average of 67 times a month, or slightly over twice a day. The widest definitions of the term include organizations like the International Board of World Heritage, while narrower definitions limit the definition to only include the West Sea Security Pact and, possibly, the West Sea Confederation.
