  3. Isn’t this only going to be ever used in a situation where one side is already overwhelmingly winning? I can’t see this every being used outside a scenario where one side is already being dogpiled. You will never aim to kill Improvs otherwise. On top of that reducing Gas and Muni use for the already winning side to kill improvements? Seems like a mechanic that will only serve to make losers in wars suffer more, rather than a war mechanic that can aid in winning a even/close war if used correctly. Why not just have bombardments have some sort of interaction with other troops, this has been suggested before but the reason why ships don’t matter is simply because they literally don’t do anything to Ground or Air. Meanwhile planes interact with all types of troops, ground interacts with other ground and air. Ships only really do anything to other ships. I suggest having ships be able to bombard ground troops, I’m not suggesting Planes since I believe that it would be too much of a nerf to planes since they’ve already been hit pretty hard previously (decreasing total plane amount, then massive dmg cuts). plus adding a check for ground seems fine with them being pretty strong. Also @Lord Tyrion Missiles and Nukes aren’t over powered at all in actual war. If it’s an actual even or close fight, you should be losing your infra. The only reason why it “feels op” is because there has been nothing but dogpile wars this last year, where nukes and missiles shine. And in those situations nukes and missiles did not win anyone a war or get them ahead, it merely made it so people wouldn’t get unscathed because they chose to outnumber someone. Which is perfectly fine.

  4. The following is a combination of old updates that were never put in, changes based on feedback/suggestions. Please feel free to provide feedback and suggestions to alternative options. Try to limit additional content beyond the scope of what is in this thread. Thank you. Trading Treasures Treasures can be directly traded between players. Treasures cannot be traded while either nation has an active offensive or defensive war. A nation with a treasure already in it cannot trade for another treasure. City/Project Timers New City timers are not effected by projects. New Protects have their own timer of 10 days (120 turns) City timer resets are reduced by 1 credit to 3 credits. Project timer resets cost 1 credit. New Projects Research and Development Center Effect: This project provides two project slots (net: one additional project slot) Cost Cash: $50,000,000 Food: 100,000 Aluminum: 5,000 Logistics Center Effect: Opens an additional trade route for Commodities Cost Cash: $5,000,000 Food: 25,000 Uranium: 5,000 Aluminum: 5,000 World Trade Organization Effect: Opens an additional trade route for Commodities Requirements: International Trade Center, Logistics Center, Space Program Cost Cash: $20,000,000 Food: 250,000 Uranium: 15,000 Aluminum: 10,000 Gasoline: 10,000 Spies Casualties Spy vs Spy casualties are reduced by 33% for the defender on a successful op, and attacker for a failed op. Missiles Spy attacks against missiles have a 25% chance to destroy an additional missile. Soldiers 5% increase is casualties from soldiers fighting soldiers. 33% reduction in tanks killed by soldiers. Soldier only attacks/defends kill too many tanks. Tanks Tanks ability to kill planes after gaining ground superiority reduced by 33% 15% increase in casualties to soldiers by tanks 10% increase in casualties to tanks by tanks With soldiers killing less tanks Planes 25% increase in tanks killed by bombing runs. 10% increase in planes killed by dogfights Ships 10% increase in ships killed by ships. New Attack Type: Bombardment When a nation is blockaded naval units can bombard a city instead of performing a naval battle. This attack destroys 33% less infrastructure This attack destroys 2 non-power plant, non-military improvements in that city. If there are only power plant and military improvements, this attack kills no improvements. This attack costs 50% less gas to perform. This attack costs 50% more munitions to perform If a bombardment attack happens while the defending nation has defending ships, the casualties caused by those defending ships is increased 25%. Example: If you attack with 200 ships and they have 50 ships defending and those 50 ships were going to kill 20 attacking ships, in a bombardment attack they instead would kill 25 ships. You must use at least 75% of your max navy when performing this attack max navy is determined by the number ships you could have if all of your cities had max dry docks, not how many dry docks you current have If you have 20 or less improvements in a city this attack will only kill 1 improvement. If you have 5 cities or less, this attack only kills 1 improvement. Nukes Nukes can now kill 4 improvements per nuclear missile. 2 of these improvements are "general" improvements and have a chance to be any improvement. 2 of these improvements are any non-power plant, non-military improvement. In the event there are no available targets, it bumps up the target list. Effectively if someone only has power plants and military structures, the nuke will destroy 4 of any improvement. Missiles Missiles can now kill 2 improvements per missile. Missile Launch Pad allows a nation to build 2 missiles per day. Iron Dome Reduces the amount of improvements killed from a missile by 1. In addition to normal effeccts Chance of blocking a missile reduced from 50% to 30%. Vital Defense System Chance to block a nuclear missile increased from 20% to 25% Reduces the amount of improvements killed from a nuke by 1. The improvement category this blocks from is the non-power plant, non-military category. Quality of Life Alliances can only have 1 treaty between them. Alliances have the ability to create up to 8 alliance positions, 5 more than the default 3. All alliance roles will come with a check list for which powers those positions have. Bank Access Changing Roles Ability to see spy counts Ability to see daily reset timers (time zones) Editing Tax Brackets Accept new members View member caches Alliance Trades offers also show in the global trades. These trades will show in a different color Expand leaderboards Increase the leaderboards from top 10 to top 100. Alternatively, include all nations in the leaderboards (suggested filters, upon talking more with Roberts: active, non-VM players, perhaps also with a filter to exclude the brand new nations that only logged in once/haven't built up anything). Allow for a search by discord handle Send an automated email to players with nations emerging from vacation mode after an extended period of time. Allow for an option to hide trades of embargoed nations/alliances from the market.

  6. Meh. It's a dirt cheap project, and unless if you literally just got it or it's always failed you since acquiring it, it's more than likely to have paid back and then some. Also, one of the proposed changes is for missiles to destroy 2 imps and for ID to halve that, so there's that. RNG (which is ultimately what 'surprise' is) is a fairly lazy method to add a variable, and such variable is more often than not just frustrating. It's also hardly a 'surprise' when every other shot is statistically set to not land.

  7. Something I just thought of, because it happened to me: We should also disallow treasures from spawning on nations currently at war. I still contend we remove timers all-together on projects. Very cool, Kanye. Casualties very cool, I personally enjoyed the 50% reduction myself. Missiles: Why? This seems like an odd/random choice given missiles are already fairly niche and have to contend with Iron Domes. Remove the bolded pieces or you're going to create imbalance. Soldiers already die too quickly and are meant to be a cheap unit to throw at your enemy when you have nothing else left OR meant to supplement your tanks. Having them turn into canon fodder is a pointless nerf. I'd suggest a 10% and 10% on both of these, respectively. 25% is a huge buff vs. tanks and we should see how the tank v. plane nerf plays out before we slash other things. Anecdotally, I think we should try 15% buff in ship v. ship. Ships are painfully bad at killing other boats, to me. But I'd be happy with 10. I disapprove strongly of bombardment as a concept. As stated on discord I think adding improvement-killers in the current war system is a recipe for a bad player experience and a bad meta. This strongly rewards people who have already won the conventional war and strongly incentivizes sitting on people for extended periods of time while you obliterate their economy/war improvements. I don't think any war system should ever take away a player's ability to act, which is what improvement-killing does. Improvements are frankly too important to die any faster and I personally think we should make them impervious. Again, I don't think either of these should kill more improvements. I would love to see the ability to build more than one nuke a day as well. Pls nerf the Iron Dome. It's so silly having a 50/50 shot when you're spending 8 MAP's. Why not match the VDS 25% block rate? Otherwise cool changes. re: leaderboards - please just do the whole game so everyone can see where they stand. I made a whole public thread on this with unanimous support and people already clarified they would rather see the entire game rankings rather than a simple extended version. A top 10 excludes all those outside of it and most people don't care. A top 100 accomplishes the same thing but with 90 extra people.

  8. @PrefontaineI like most of the thread. But i am confused on this one. Is the bombardment only for the nation who has been blocked by the attacker, Or is it that the attacker can initiate bombardment after he naval blocks another nation? It would be lovely to see the latter in effect as people would actually have to think strategically if to blockade someone or no. But the second option (where the blockadier can bombard the blockaded ones) is overkill for the people/alliances (usually small/micros) if they get into a war and get their improvements destroyed in an all out war. Of course some people will say that he is a pirate so he fears his improvements get rekt up etc etc. But if you think about it logically, it will hurt the emerging player base, most of whom rely on raiding for their initial growth. And also the alliances who are new and dont have enough money to support the infra and improvements together.

  9. I personally feel that the reduction in credit prices to get new projects will help whales more than new nations. I'm going to be neutral on this and see what the others have to say about it. If I'm not wrong, a 60v60 without buffs takes out 18 spies at most. This nerf means we lose only 12 spies in a 60v60. On the other hand, firstly what do you mean by Failed OP. Is it when you fail to kill spies and are caught? Kill spies and are caught? Fail to kill spies and are not caught? Secondly, atm, you lose 9ish spies on a failed op when detected at most. The nerf means we lose 6 spies now. I'm only against the second part of this change over here. Defending against spy attacks is way more difficult when in a blitz. So keep the causalities for failed attacking ops as is. The Missiles thing tho. I've seen a few people pitch out that ID needs to reduce missile damage to 50% rather than block out the missile all together. If you are game for that, I'm game for this. For the longest time, soldiers had been the weakest units in-game. However with the causality updates, that was overturned, making soldiers an extremely good defensive measure. They were nerfed once when tank costs got reduced to half(reducing their damage to half as well) and now we are reducing that by another 33%? This will only ever help the bigger, wealthier side of the game like all the other war-mechanics updates that have been made since NPOLT. Such changes help "Dumb, Herd" play and heavily nerf the "Intelligent, Innovative" play, a feature that has been steadily moving away from the game. Other than this, I'd like to propose something for the "Flying Tanks Update". Let us not fix the % of planes killed to be exactly 40% or 50% or 30%. How about having them as a ratio? 1c v 1c example: With the static 40% planes killed figure, a GA will always wipe out 6 planes per hit. However if we add in a factor of 40% times (Current Planes/Max Planes), this figure will keep decreasing after the first hits. In fact, imo, this should be done to all units so that you lose units proportionally to your army at that moment. Yes, this is a much needed fix to the planes. Thank you. I have massive problems with the Bombardment Option. The guaranteed ability to kill improvements is a big downside to smaller groups in a war. You can basically wipe out their improvements while sitting on them, forcing them to keep rebuying infra to be able to fight back, something they are already unable to do. You are also making this extremely cost-effective way for the aggressors who can kill improvements for pennies. This sounds like the "Flying Planes Update" but on every drug known to mankind. Something you yourself will make "patches" to once you see it in action. I already told you about the ID thing earlier in this huge assessment. Please re-read that. Thank you. As for the VDS, I have a suggestion. Even if the VDS blocks out the nuke, allow for the nation to experience "nuclear fallout". I'll explain it here. Since we assume the nuke is blocked mid-air, all the radiation and such should still affect pollution levels. This can be realized by polluting the city as if an actual nuke were to fall on the city. Other than this, I'd once again like to pitch out that we need to balance out the score system more and if possible, before the next global(in around 2 months). Plus, all these things MUST BE TESTED on the TEST SERVER. PLEASE DO NOT PUSH THEM LIVE WITHOUT TESTING FIRST.

  10. I'm personally always wishy-washy on NAPs. I hate long ones, but shorter ones (3mos or less) are fine imo. I'd be hypocritical though considering I pretty much heavily emphasized for a long one after that stupidity with NPO and Friends. The only real reason why I did so was to allow players and alliances to readjust to things and figure out what they wanted to do moving on. Plus there was just way too much damage done in all areas of the game. And as a side note, there were some actual game changes coming up that I was hoping would improve the game once the NAP ended.

  11. Not only is it redundant as reaching a peace agreement necessitates the ending and desire to cease hostilities, but it's so tedious to artificially restrict yourselves to not going to war when we clearly see multiple people will violate or circumvent those terms anyway. Not to even mention the number of people in my DM's asking Arrgh to do your dirty work because "the NAP doesn't let us hit them for another two months." If you must sign a NAP then do so on an individual basis, but stop acting like it's the new norm for ending wars.

  14. And don't forget, Machiavelli might be famous for the Prince, but The Prince was just one of many books he wrote about government and it's forms and how each form should be run and operated for best results. It's telling that he suggested the monarchy to dispatch well aimed and timed cruelty to maintain order, I think. Telling especially when you actually research the guy and his work and realize that in his opinion, Republics were the best, no contest, and that he wrote things like The Prince under duress.

  23. The truth of the matter is that there are more and less effective political philosophies. Not more fun or more interesting, but merely more effective in accumulating and maintaining power. Often, and is this case, the more boring and more calcified, the more effective. Simply accumulating more people than everyone else has been a winning strategy forever, and if those people are unambitious, them being chained together into an immobile blob doesn't even bother them. This isn't even fun for those controlling the gigantic blob however, as the fruits of victory are as ashes in your mouth. The same unambitious blob that allows you to sit atop your golden throne also are those who prefer maintaining the status quo and aren't interested in embarking on things that might be fun. At the core of power, is an immense brain drain, as the bored and ambitious split away to do something for once. On the other side of the equation people with extremely risky, bold and ambitious alliance projects inevitably succeed in eventually toppling any hegemony, no matter how enormous, as hegemonies rot from the inside out. The problem is once toppled, these alliances either have to entirely reinvent themselves or die from the disease that brought them low. Learning no lessons, those who had toppled them from their golden thrones often will immediately jettison those too ambitious to be their vassal meat shields and will accumulate the same sort of hangers-on that the previous hegemony had, and the cycle repeats itself.

  25. Hello everybody! TODAY I have decided I would do something special for the top 40 alliances as the owner of On Mark News Network! I am going to write a poem for every alliance that is in the top 40! These poems represent their alliance theme or represent what they are known of but some poems would be about the names and not the theme because I cba to learn 40 alliances in 1/2 days. PS: I have wasted a lot of time on this because I don't wanna disappoint anybody! I want it to look good for the alliances to be proud of their own poem so I hope you like it! If you see it cringe, bad or anything like that then I would love to hear your feedback on how to make my poems better!

  28. I mean replies on a DoE are normally nice ones, and I'd suggest making a DoE a couple weeks after your alliance is created so people can get a feel of who your alliance is, and whether or not it commands their respect. DoEs are also pretty good for getting an alliance name out in the public.

  36. At the moment the option to "Terrorize civilians" is not really on par with the rest of the spying options, and with previous discussions about not having infra to support the improvement slots my suggestion is simple; Instead of having a few infra points shaved off by the "Terrorize civilians" option, make the spies target buildings and not infra. When improvements are not supported by infra, even more improvements would be destroyed, and even more if you have the spy sat, for an example.

  40. Yes Quack who lost the war, wanted a guaranteed 6 months of peace but only for them. With an attitude like that you wonder why the rest of the world worked together to take you down.

  41. I tried guys, I really did, but I lost that fight during the peace talks to the people on my own side. Many people feel they need to protection of a NAP to make FA moves, or are paranoid that they are just going to get hit again if they dont have a long one.

  42. To have fallen so far and learned nothing. The leadership is not to blame. As much as you and your elitist ilk like to pretend that online nationsim politics is so hard and advanced beyond the means of the everyman, it isn't. Anyone can aspire, politic, and plot. It's your archaic methods in the major alliances and the entanglements of treaties that bind you thusly. Do you want PnW to be interesting? DEMOCRATIZE YOURSELVES - No nation should be slave to their alliance. The alliance should answer to the people. Your typical defense is OPSEC, which is laughable. What opsec have we seen in PnW? Every member, gov or otherwise, rushes to gossip about any unfolding event as quickly as they can. Democracy or no. Plans leak, wars spark, and that is thankfully the only thing that drags politics forward through the mire in which we find ourselves. You want more interesting things happening? Tired of the same old leadership? Then democratize and start seeing turnover and new blood. Your members aren't inactive, they're merely disinterested in investing three years of their lives to maybe get promoted into a position that you'll simply steal back when you unretire every three weeks. gov should be elected via some method, especially the top leader. Arrgh, for example, elects the Grand Admiral and then he/she appoints the rest. treaties, wars, and major decisions should not only be a vote but a discussion. Are you tired of nothing ever happening? SHED YOUR PAPER - I'm really not sure how treaties got carried over from other nationsim games like we learned nothing. I expect because in CN and other games we were too strict, too opsec, too self-contained within our own element of government that we didn't inform the masses who came here and took up the mantle. Treaties fricking suck. They kill intrigue, they kill plotting, they kill politics. Treaties reduce this game of would-be thrones into a mundane exercise in contractual obligation. Congratulations, you're simulating a relationship with a bank. So fun right? FA heads tell me honestly - who do you spend the majority of your time talking to and what do you talk about? It's not your allies unless you truly have a special relationship. You spend your time trying to make new treaties. Upper gov the same. You spend all your political time and energy trying to do something new. Something new is fun, exciting, as it should be. Yet you simple-minded apes can't connect the cause to the effect. You sign a treaty, you now may get an occasional check-in from that ally. More than likely, you'll get radio silence for awhile because the fun has been had and the honeymoon is over. The thing people fail to understand is that a paperless alliance can also obligate itself to defend another alliance. It's an agreement like any other but it's not announced or celebrated and it comes with risk and opportunity. If you agree to defend someone and don't hear from them again until next year - that agreement may be revisited. Similarly, it opens opportunity for politicking on another level. Backstabs, betrayals, disloyalty, plots... Things we pretend to decry in public but crave in private. Just some early morning thoughts from your friendly neighborhood Pirate.

  43. Honestly, it's a terrible idea. We've been here before with Cybernations trade circles and all it does in that game is generate a lot of stress for the poor sucker in each alliance that ends up having to organise them. They're just simply not fun and will do nothing other than widen the gap between haves and have nots.

  44. Some of you may remember an alliance here last year that called themselves “The Coal Mines” led by Nokia Rokia. “What ever happened to them?” you may find yourself wondering. They picked a fight with The Immortals in 2019, and promptly disbanded, before a peace could be brokered – a sad day for coal enthusiasts everywhere. But, in a long list of crazy shit to happen in 2020, they have re-emerged from their collapse, with hopes of a better outcome. Sadly, however, there has not been enough oxygen down in the mines this iteration either, and it’s affecting their decision making once again. So let’s get the rest of Orbis up to speed on what our friends in the mines have been up to. Last week, their second in command Shadow aka Antman aka DarknessIncarnate, decided to ghost his post in TCM and raid multiple people in the Swamp, among other alliances – with the intention of causing as much damage as possible. Yet, with open wars still ongoing with The Immortals and others, Shadow rejoined TCM – and leader Nokia leaves to Weebunism – leaving Shadow as leader in-game. Well, The Immortals counter that open raid, as would anybody else, and promptly had the counters illegitimately countered. Then those bad wars were countered and so on and so forth. With no desire or need for further escalation, especially to TCM members who are caught up in this tomfoolery, peace negotiations began shortly that same day. All parties on each side acknowledged Shadow and TCM’s actions were in the wrong and a peace was negotiated. “Splendid!” one might say. But sadly all wars were not peaced as promised. No… wrought with anger and frustration from looking foolish, Shadow wasn’t going to go down like that. Shadow launched a nuke on a Fark nation hours after the peace he accepted was in effect, causing expensive damage. When asked hours later the next day “hey, what the hell?” minutes after such inquiry, a missile was sent to the same Fark target (who hadn’t attacked at all again mind you) ending that war and looting the nation and Fark’s alliance bank. Shadow knew hell was about to rain down on his nation, so he readied his troops and…. wait, what’s that? Oh nevermind, he zeroed everything, sold infra down to 0.01 in every city and deposited everything he had, including the spoils from his Fark loot, into the TCM bank and exited his position as government claiming he was quitting the game. Okay, see you in re-roll bud. Seems Shadow/TCM did not wish to honor the peace arrangement afterall, but Shadow is no longer government, so the next step is to talk to the new leadership, which is Nokia once again – THE KING RETURNS! Surely he would return the stolen loot from Fark and make amends for the violation of the peace treaty – a simple request really. No reps from TCM are requested, just Shadow’s deposit and we all walk away. But Nokia not only denies the request, but threatens nukes and months of war as a response – and readies TCM with war tactics – all while admitting “we are not in the right. Quite the opposite” – but he does not want someone to “push us around”. Apparently damaging somebody else’s property and expecting that person to pay for said damage is pushing folks around. Rather than not condone what Shadow did and make things right, it seems TCM gov’t wishes to take ownership of Shadow’s actions. Based on these series of actions, it is concluded that The Coal Mines have purposely and unapologetically voided the terms of the peace deal and Swamp now acknowledges and will finish the war they brought to us. Any members that exit TCM now will not be pursued – you shouldn’t have to be burned down because of incompetent leadership. -THE SWAMP
