    This is the first edition of the Royal Island Post, a paper haphazardly written by a pirate. The only other paper I like is the Shifty News Network, and one is one too few. So I decided to create my own newspaper that I'm sure to love. As for you, perhaps not, I'm not fancy and I've never done this before, but here we are. I'm to write what I like and shamelessly promote whatever I like, plus those that pay good money. So without further ado, welcome to RIP. Here's the news! Afrika Korps, an alliance of nations with immense tanks, declared war on Arrgh! An alliance of pirates with immense rum. What were they thinking? I haven't bothered to find out. What I can tell you, is that they didn't have many pirates to fight, our ships just aren't that big, it effects speed and maneuverability, I know these things, I'm a pirate. After we pirates drank and had a good laugh, we all went our separate ways. I don't know what's happened since then, I think the panzers are still trying to learn to swim, here's a picture I found. (Thanks Epi) Later on in the week, a mysterious stranger visited the Afrikans and probed them all. (presumably) It's okay though, the Korps learned about paper and can now be observed in the safari, grazing under the watchful eye of ayyliens. Why did this happen? Who knows. Perhaps they felt endangered, scared perhaps. Maybe they felt alone? They could have just longed for the love of an ayylien. In any case, the Afrikans were adopted by Black Knights and they have a cozy home. The global peace terms discussion has not noticeably progressed this week. This writer is happy to see that, war is the essence of life, like sweet sweet lemonade on a hot day. I wish war for everyone into the next year, let's do it right folks, start the year with a BANG! In other news, a new alliance has entered the world of Orbis, they were born out of the alliance The Crimson Entente and have burst into the world by what they call, a declaration of secession. They are, The Bombardiers and they are succeeding from what they call an "oppressive,corrupt and tyrannical government". It all began with a fellow who goes by the name Benefactor(Merkurios), he was among those who declared independence from The Crimson Entente. When asked why, he sighted taxes as a major source of tension,which he said primarily benefited the rich. (on a personal note, as a pirate I despise all concepts of taxes, I deal mostly in booty) He also claimed that TCE is a phony democracy, ran by corrupt officials who censor free speech, which they used against him when he attempted to petition for lower taxes. He also said that officials are paid off to work for the president and the people remain unrepresented. (This pirates question is, if this be true, why had not more joined the mutiny?) In any case, I searched for another side of the story. I spoke with KingDracula of The Crimson Entente and he was forthcoming with a story of his own. He says that Benefactor simply had disagreements with other members of his previous alliance (TCE) and abruptly left the alliance shortly thereafter. He says the war was not about succession at all, but about money that Benefactor took with him. ( I asked Benefactor about this claim, he says he paid it off, and that the war was indeed about succession.) I also have a message from Parrish, who said, "TCE denies all claims of corruption and dennounces Bombardier's leader for putting up a false Reason of seceding" It's debatable what the first round of fighting was about, but this second round is undoubtedly about the succession. With TB publicly denouncing TCE, which they claim are straight up lies, the situation seems unlikely to improve. So what's the truth here? I have no idea! I'm just here to give you the story. In this writers opinion, this revolution has more bark than bite. Will The Bombardiers make something of themselves in this orb? Or will they simply disappear into the heaps of micros? Only time can tell. It looks as though the Paradise bloc has been disbanded, or at least changed significantly. Animation Domination is no longer a part of this bloc and what that means remains to be seen. Apparently The Isle has asked them to leave, which does not seem to be what AD had wanted. According to Arizona Robbins of The Isle, "We looked at the direction the bloc itself was going, and it wasnt moving anywhere. I could go on, but out of respect for our former allies that is AD, we wont go there and we wish you the best in your future prospects, and now it's time to close this door and look fowards to the future". Most importantly, what does this mean to Captain Jack? Well my answer is obvious, I hope this means more war! A pirate could only hope. Perhaps something interesting will happen from this, AD has plenty of potential and a seemingly stalwart captain. I just hope it means they'll attack someone. There's also a new alliance, league of hero's, I haven't had time to find out anything about them, but let's wish them luck. Story time! I had the joy of taking part in a jury, which was interesting at first. The jury was assembled, and the trial began. Although you'd think a lawyer would be ready for trial, the defense unfortunately was not. But instead of retrial, we waited around while the defense got extra time. I won't give the details, but it was a trial for treason. So anyhow, what started as a serious trial by jury, for a serious crime, ended up becoming a minor crime with a slap on the wrist. The best part? The judge presiding didn't even know there was a jury! And made his decision without so much as consulting us, which is hard to do when you don't know we exist. So, it was my first stint on a ceremonial jury, and I will make it my last. It brings to question, what is a jury for? And why waste their time? Walk the plank next time and be done with it. I had a fun little time being accused of bullying, which is not my fault mind you. If you'd just hand over the loot, everything would go so much smoother. I recommend just giving me your loot next time, then I'll be your best friend. No better friend than an old enemy. Speaking of, I was looting an inactive that came back from the grave, spooky stuff I tell you. And I had saved up some maps, there wasn't much going on, he was almost defeated. Well, I went to use them up and what would you think the results would be? I'll be damned, I brought my opponents resistance down to, 1! 100 vs 1! I could not believe mine eyes! Well, I just had to peace out with that fellow, a pirate won't do well ignoring messages from Davy Jones. I wish him well. Here's a pirate quote "Damn ye, you are a sneaking puppy, and so are all those who will submit to be governed by laws which rich men have made for their own security." - "Black" Sam Inspirational words if you ask me. That's the end of the first edition of RIP, come by next week for another edition. If you have anything you'd like to be shared, message me, Captain Jack, and it just may make the paper. Also send hate mail. I'm also open to suggestions and other shenanigans. Arrgh!

    >not another irrelevant micro >protected Ok This isn’t a “Golden Horde” thing, this is Hippo’s biggest pet peeve thing. Most of the major AAs in this game have no standards with just accepting anybody who asks for a Protectorate tie, and yet quite a lot of people in random chats and back channels want to claim the game is dead due to stagnation moments - mostly caused by an inflation of AAs and dumb treaties. The fact that any major AA is willing to protect alliances that 1) Have no real membership, 2) No valued experiences, 3) Are not willing to defend themselves, or 4) Have no direction - is causing this game to be inflated with irrelevant AAs that simply just end up as some other AAs tool. And yet when those AAs get involved with some of the major backroom politics, they realize they’re not ready for it and make requests to others to bail them out. Hell, even some of the major AAs out there have shit gov/leadership. Players too scared or lazy, or simply have no idea how to handle their own issues.

    They did the first time I looked at them *shrug* Why do you seem so angry and upset? You may not care, but BK does, and if you become a problem they'll drop you before fighting a major alliance over your attitude here. Is there a reason you're so upset and vitriolic? Also for fun, someone put this in our discord. Now I'm not saying I'm great and amazing, but there is a certainly a disparity here that you sit down and consider. Some people take time and great effort in planning these things, rather than flailing around from day one and surviving based on as much luck as judgement. When my alliance is as old yours it will be one of two things. Either in the top 20, or non existent. Shitty micros are the ones that exist for nearly a year and barely move from their starting spot.

    I want to make it clear, the Paradise Bloc has been disbanded, defunked. It no longer exists. The bloc was disbanded for multiple reasons, and we do not harbor any I'll feelings to AD, the Isle wishes AD luck in their future FA prospect, however we decided it was best we went our seperate ways. We wanted different things, and we learned that our goals just do not add up together, and instead of holding AD back on its goals they wanted to pursue, we disbanded the bloc. RR and TI are still allies, however we already had a seperate treaty with RR and due to RR understanding our position, they agreed it was for the best, and the rest is known.

    Pretty hypocritical that you guys are screaming about how great sovereignty and peace is while behind the scenes you guys have been trying to forcibly "annex" *cough poach* nations with threats of war. I'll look out for your guys' Declaration of Disbandment in the coming two weeks.

    It is no surprise your still the stuck up !@#$ who rage quits everytime she doesnt get her way. Classic Eva move. You havent done anything to improve the RP. All you have done is rage quit, reset, rage quit, reset, rince and repeat. I use to think you were a good RPer and then in a day you shown your true side and started this cycle of rage quitting/resetting the map and trying once again to control every player in the RP. Your a quitter and a sore loser. You are one of the problems of this RP and then blame everyone else, eventhough you are the main contributor to the problems of the RP. Tl;dr you once again shown you are too incompetent to RP with others. How about you quit RPing with people since you cant handle not being in control over every aspect of the community.

    The main problem with this suggestion is that if you implement this, the most effective way to fight would be to frick units all together and just focus-nuke cities until they get deleted. It would create an incentive to fight like a vagina and put practically little to no strategy into your front and just nuke people until they surrender. The second problem is that it would encourage people to buckle down in a siege, build as little infra/units as possible and just nuke turret to avoid cost, making wars last forever. Not even to mention that people would be even more scared of fighting in general because they have to worry about their cities getting deleted. That's so boring. The third problem is that if you're losing a protracted war, you can't come back, because your cities and improvements are dead, hence you have to rebuild them before rebuilding your units to give you any chance to fight back. It makes wars way too black and white. The city cost could be negligible, because when you take into account the cost of nuclear power plants, hangars, docks, it would be really difficult to upfront the cost that would get you into a shape where you can fight back, especially considering that people could just blockade you and airstrike your cash, giving you literally no chance to do anything, and that's just frustrating. Not even to mention that you'd need to do it across many different cities, which would make it an insane pain in the ass.
