    https://politicsandwar.com/nation/id=1722&display=bank The great birds of The Terapin Federation have journeyed long and far on our quest to find the best memes or Orbis. Indeed, after such a long and arduous journey, some among us wondered if we would ever reach the end - the ultimate meme. Tired, we rested in a quiet spot, a peaceful guardian site. Wait, what is this? Money? And food too? Lying unattended, where anyone could take it. An unfortunate soul must've dropped it. Well, a stroke of luck! Our journey can continue, freshly fed and funded! Thank you, kind stranger, for your donation to the Build NG New Cities Fund!

    1. Do players (kastor) that don't create good topics, even matter in the macro of the game? no no no but bold FTFY

    I threw most of this together as a quick dark theme alternative a couple years ago and have been gradually expanding it for greater customization. More specifically to allow for color selection rather than purely a fixed theme. It's reached the point of being quite usable and in need of a larger testing audience. To install it you'll need a user styles manager such as Stylus (available for Firefox and Chrome). Then all you need to do is click here: Some screenshots below of its default color scheme: No more tiny bank input fields! And of course if that color scheme isn't manly enough for you there is always the option to do this:

    @TheNG' These words people threw around - humans, monsters, heroes, villains - to Leohann Kabbaz it was all just a matter of semantics. Someone could call themselves a hero and still walk around memeing dozens. Someone else could be labeled a villain for trying to stop them. Plenty of humans were monstrous, and plenty of monsters knew how to play at being human. The time of semantics was at an end, Leohann Kabbaz knew. He had risen- a spiritual union between the edgiest rival factions. The ultimate fusion of wit. He was the Alpha. The endgame. Leohann Kabbaz' gaze rested on the figurine in front of him. A meek, distorted silhouette reeking of expired jokes; more vinegar than salt. Pitiful. This champion was but the artefact of an eon long past. And like his heritage, he too would soon be lost in the abyss of archived memes. Leohann smiled. "Ah you think shitposts are your ally? You merely adopted the meme. I was born in it, molded by it. I didn't see the forum until I was already a man, by then it was nothing to me but blinding! I am the great shitposter. There must be no other. Anyone who even thinks about deserting this mission will be memed up into 198 pieces. Those memes will be repeated until what is left can be used only to paint 9gag. Whoever takes one grain of salt or one drop of tears… more than his ration, will be moderated for 155 years. If I, LeoHann Kabbaz, want the birds to drop dead from their memes… then the birds will drop dead from their memes. I am the wrath of admin. The forums I pass will see me and tremble. But whoever follows me and this trainwreck, will win untold upvotes. But whoever deserts…" A faint sigh escapes Leohann Kabbaz. His eyes shift up and a grimace contorts his face; eyes twinkling with the purity devoid of any restraint only a madman could posess. "Do you want to know why I use Photoshop? Paint is too quick. You can’t savor all the… little emotions. In… you see, in their last memes, people show you who they really are. So in a way, I know your friends better than you ever did. Would you like to know which of them were not funny?" The pigeon just stared out into the waves. Leohann Kabbaz considered shoving him over the railing. Sure, he was hundreds of years old, but could he swim?

    I'll keep it short and simple. t$ nations are using some kind of hack to win wars before you can blink. Why does someone always have to pull this BS. I'm posting here so @Alex actually does something about it. Here is what I'm talking about: https://politicsandwar.com/nation/war/timeline/war=518155 EDIT: I said "nations" but have only provided one example. It seems that the nation in question is doing it intentionally, but it may be only him and a few others, it's not right to blame all of t$ yet, and I was wrong to phrase it that way. I have asked the person who revealed this to me for more examples as they said that multiple nations did it.

    Um...How about just leave it alone? Has there been a vocal majority of players, demanding you nerf Baseball? Is that the highest priority thing out there? Do you enjoy frustrating the people that play your game and in my case, donate to your game? Why even ask us? No one who plays baseball wants you to nerf it...the rest of the people don't play it, so what's the issue? In the last two and a half years i have been playing this game you have added two projects, made a few cosmetic changes and threatened to nerf baseball. That's about it. Why not develop the game instead of taking away a portion of the game some people enjoy and others don't care about?

    On the nation page, on the right side of the name where the ship appears when you're blockaded, I think it would be nice if the alt text that says "This nation in blockaded" could also name the rulers who're holding the blockade on the nation. Something like "This nation has been blockaded by Lalo, Ferm, Fermion

    "t$ directed me to a replacement with the exact same authority because their FA had RL issues so clearly t$ doesn't feel like this is a serious issue ... because their FA won't set aside his RL to talk to us even though there's a replacement being provided. This is all t$' fault and I am in no way acting like an entitled little prick trying to justify my bullshit"

    As someone who habitually went against whales, it's not the only way to beat larger nations. Planes are OP for the reason of they're the only unit that can take out other units besides its own type. If you win with planes you can kill any units. If you win with navy you can only kill ships. This dynamic needs to change, and has needed to change for a long time. The way to go about it is either make planes only kill planes, or make other things able to kill other things as well.

    In the beginning there was peace in Orbis. No toxicity, no trolls, and micros as far as the eye could see. But that peace would not last. Hordes of power amassed, until one day the war of all wars broke out, spreading darkness across the lands and burning pixel upon pixel. Out of this war all mortal nations perished, leaving behind a nuclear wasteland of bones, ash and low infra. Those unfortunate to survive the days of war were left to start a new perfect world together. It was out of necessity and the fear of being alone in the desolate world, that those that cannot die decided to band together. Be it written on stone in blood that The Immortals and their vampire brethren The Originals entered into an MDoAP to inherit what was left in the world of Orbis when the rest of the nations fulfilled their mortal destinies and left this place. Signatory for The Originals: Rebekah Mikaelson – Queen Signatory for The Immortals: Tyrion Lannister – The First

    For those of you who are lost by what's currently happening: BK started attacking TEst out of nowhere 2 days ago without posting any sort of DoW. T$ responded by countering those who were attacking, but BK decided to further escalate things by attacking those counters as well. NPO has decided that they'd rather help out their paperless ally instead of the one that actually has a treaty with them.

    Declaration of Existence The Red Banner formally declares its existence in the world of Orbis. We didn't previously declare our existence because we didn't need to at that time. The Red Banner is a communist and socialist alliance and we wish to unite all like minded nations together under one banner, The Red Banner. We vow to protect all our comrades against any who would disturb our peace, we value friendship, sharing and strong willed people who aren't afraid to say it how it is. "As leader of The Red Banner I pledge myself to the alliance to lead to the best of my ability, to show wisdom in times of peace and strength in times of war." I wish good luck to all my comrades and all future allies Thank you.

    When someone/alliances puts in the time and effort to develop strategies, make money etc then those opposed to those people/alliances will always try to remove that advantage, simply because they lack the effort/time to do so. Opposition to baseball is only there because people don't want certain groups to have an advantage over them. One day we will simply just have politics and War and there will be a handful of people actually playing the game where the majority will only turn up for war. I'm a perfect example of that. In peace time I log in daily for the bonus, play some baseball when I feel like it and log off, there is nothing else in the game that interests me apart from war.

    Man this entire dumpster fire has just been a roller coaster of idiocy and self-wanking. I wasn't even aware that one person could have such an incredible rectal-cranial inversion that they were able to brush their own teeth by sticking a brush up their ass. Please, go on. It's entertaining as hell. And yes, I signed up just so I could post that. Because that's how entertained I am.

    All in favor of leaving our alliances and joining Fark in a mass protest against our alliance leaders who refuse to make peace already? If your teacher leader doesn't make peace within 15 weeks you're legally allowed to walk out. That's what my older brother told me.

    This is a text book example of moving the goal posts. And each time you move the goal posts, you're still wrong. Your first claim was that libcoms were in the White Army. When I cracked a joke about the Black Army, you had no idea what I was talking about, as evidenced by your response, which doesn't even work as a joke. Then, you claimed that the Black Army was part of the White Army. When I pointed out that, no this wasn't true, you now claim that it's true because "they occupied the same area?" What does that even mean? Two options, ideology or geography. Ideologically, having a nonzero amount of libcoms somewhere in the White Army doesn't not negate that the vast, vast, vast majority were in the Black Army, which was never allied with the Whites. Geographically is the weaker and more bizarre of the arguments, but I have to cover it because your statement is so poorly structured. That fact that both the Blacks and the Whites held similar territories at different times and fought the Reds at different timed doesn't make them allied. Telling me to take it to discord after "doing my research" when you're making baseless statements that aren't backed up by any historical accounts is intellectual cowardice. As is your equal baseless opinion that "the Union was just as bad" in the civil war. And the implication that the South wouldn't hate African Americans so much if they had just remained slaves until the South decided to let them go is so far beyond red herring victim blaming that it boggles the mind. It's pretty clear that you are emotionally invested in numerous of histories losers and trot out the canned talking points that make them seem like the morally wronged noble side, but these points don't hold up to any analysis if you have even a passing knowledge of the situations.

    I can speak on behalf of Chaos, not KETOG. However - From where we stand: All you have is conjecture on what war would “eventually happen”, we have cold hard proof that there was a war being planned against us. If you want to make KETOG out to be the bad guys, and they wanted to roll BK (providing you have proof). Then that’s your prerogative. But to say that t$ and Chaos colluded with them beforehand to bring down BK and NPO is absolutely ridiculous and has a basis in nothing other than paranoia.

    The problem here is that BK on multiple occasions showed willingness to follow through on that hostility with military action. The first sign on that was the knightfall flareup, which nearly compromised the entire war effort. The problem with these flareups is that NPO has at no point been willing to openly back The $yndicate over BK. You remain mute and allow BK to leverage t$ out of political position because you fear the loss of your BK contacts and the security those provide. I have always been pragmatic about these things, and I understand that you are looking out for yourself and your alliance. But when it backfires as it did just now and shit hits the fan, pinning the degeneration of relations solely on t$ is disingenious at best, and malicious at worst.

    To all the people downvoting my original post: What about this? https://politicsandwar.com/alliance/id=6045 Do you think this is fine? This is de-facto invulnerable bank looting anyway. Very rarely do banks actually get looted in the status-quo. Eliminating bank looting isn't going to change much in terms of gameplay, it's just going to get rid of a lot of the confusing offshore 1-man alliances. Having the cap on alliance banks will ensure that you can actually loot more because nations will have to store a lot more money/rss.

    This is awkward because if you go farther back in the wars you will see that NPO's second in command, Keshav actually hit Typhon first. NPO calling you in on an oA but painting it as an MD is quite fitting for their behaviour these past few days.
