  1. "To succeed in your mission, you must have single-minded devotion to your goal." - A.P.J. Abdul Kalam ~~~ Dear Friends and Enemies of Orbis, I’m writing to you all today with some important news. Our devoted king, Canbec, has decided to retire. I’m sure this news has not already been circulating all last night and today and will come as a complete and total shock to all. Whether you love him a lot or only a little, Canbec has been an incredible part of both our alliance and Orbis. He’s served The Knights Radiant with great love and devotion since July 2021, when he joined gov as a High Prince of War and began moving up through the ranks. He’s led the alliance since January 2023 and has done an amazing job. He saw us through five wars, two blocs, and one very successful merger. He helped raise two protectorates to allies. He served on the development team. And, arguably most impressive of all, he achieved what many thought was impossible: convincing TKR to move from Slack to Discord. Canbec, you’ve been an amazing leader for the last year and an even more amazing friend for the last three, and I’m grateful you’ll be sticking around as a Shard. Thank you for everything you’ve done for TKR and thank you for the trust you’ve put in me and in Ben to continue moving TKR forward. You’ve left us some big shoes to fill, and I hope we’ll do you justice. I also want to thank our allies, Grumpy Old Bastards, The Immortals, The Forgotten Realms, and Space Engineers, for supporting us during this transition. I look forward to working more with you in the coming months. Lastly, thank you to our members for believing in us and trusting us to serve you. I look forward to seeing what we can accomplish together. All the best, Adrienne, Queen of the Heralds ~~~ Dear Frenemies Orbis Wide: You can’t get rid of me forever! It is a sad occasion with Canbec’s retirement. Our game and community are better for all that Canbec has achieved and we appreciate everything he poured into it. Thanks for bringing us into the 21st century on Discord, designing some beautiful war badges, and seeming to answer DMs at all hours. You should be proud of all that you accomplished in milcom, growth in econ, implementing new tech, and making us some wonderful new friends in FA. Enjoy the best role in the game: retired former leader, advisor, and shard. You’ve earned your rest. Looking forward to your nitpicking of our future decisions! I’ll Leave the Rocking Chair Warm for Ya, Benfro, Prince of the Heralds ~~~ tl;dr:

  2. A TFP Statement There seems to be some inquiry about a trade Erik made with Hatebi a few days ago. Erik was simply buying some sweet, sweet, Hatebi insurance. We’re pacifists and pixel huggers, what do you expect? No, we did not hire Hatebi to nuke the Syndicate. However, we agree with the Syndicate that there cannot possibly be any other reason Hatebi would nuke two people with a combined average infra over 3k. It must be a hostile action taken by another alliance! Nothing else is remotely fathomable. Additionally, we concur that this hostile payment must have taken place through a trade with Hatebi and through no other means. As a gesture of good will, we are happy to help the Syndicate with their quest to find this hostile entity, and have compiled a list of every nation Hatebi has traded with in the last month. We hope this critical information will help the Syndicate find their culprit. Anyways, I’m glad that we could discuss this matter privately. It’s a good thing nobody took any rash actions and embarrassed themselves with a public forum post.

  11. Adrienne led TKR during their toughest period, where they lost a bunch of wars, and kept them together through it all. They're a much better alliance for it, and tremedously resilient - one of pnw's historic giants with t$, Rose and more recently Eclipse. I'm sure you'll do a great job. Congrats to the retired Canbec and condolences to the new leadership.

  12. And just like that, a titan went on to rest. Thank you @Canbec for everything. And ofc, thank you for putting up with me. I know I can be an ass. But your service to our alliance was massive. Sincerely, thank you. A proper TKR Legend. Curiously awaiting to see how these new kids do, whoever they are.

  17. Investor Contact: Keram Media Contact: Tarroc NASSAU, Bahamas, 2024-02-11: On February 10, Eriko of Dune, Facilitator of The Fighting Pacifists, paid Hatebi a sum of 86 million dollars at 1:08pm EST, and soon after Hatebi declared war upon two members of The $yndicate. Hiring pirates to attack members of The $yndicate is a hostile, aggressive action. Hostile actions towards us will be met with hostile responses, and so Eriko will bear the consequences. https://politicsandwar.com/nation/id=328624&display=trade https://politicsandwar.com/nation/id=109046&display=war About SYNDICATE, Inc.

  28. Sad cause trash talk is hilarious and should be expected especially in competitive games among players that take the game seriously Credits should remain but only for buying cosmetics, like how literally every other game does it, maybe add some cool cosmetic features that arent straight P2W 600 mil a month = UP, C11, PB, IA, RDC in one purchase on day one (which is insane)

  36. For your consideration on my nominations: It's hard to really know who has really done what in this game, usually it just goes by reputation or personal experience so I figured I'd share a bit of my 2023 CV for those that are undecided. For best fighter - My plane kills (about 155k) for 2023 alone would put me in the top 60 all-time leaderboard and tank kills (about 2.12m) for 2023 alone would put me in the top 50 all-time leaderboard. My $34b net on the year is surpassed only by players that had large bank loots like Sam Cooper and TheDoom. I'm near the top of the leaderboards for every war I participated in. For best war criminal - I think a qualification should be actual warfighting. I'm the only person to roll Pika this year - the most protected player in the game. https://politicsandwar.com/nation/id=274541&display=war I've stolen treasures, taken over $500m in bounties, and single-handedly rolled micros all year long.

  38. I think the main problem is that nothing actually happens outside of *you* i think hurricanes should randomly hit nations. Earthquakes should happen, etc then there’s a chance of your mines blowing up, or oil rig leaking, or a pilot stealing an aircraft. these events can happen to your nation, and causes your income to drop by X or causes an airbase to blow up and deal 2.00-5.00 infra damage. these things may seem silly, but they bring life to the game that would cause people to check their nation. i recently bought food/uranium for a month, deposited my money, and half-ass a log in every few days. But I don’t really *check* my nations. another thing is we can literally take from Nationstates and do “issues” we can trial run 1-10 of them, and have them randomly hit nations, and based off of nation ideology. Like the Communist country can’t pick the capitalist option and vice versa. but I think the main issue is something no one will agree with but should be the biggest point is that the small oligarchy of people who are apart of the development team suck. Minus maybe a few people, majority of the conversations that have leaked from them have been terrible ideas. another large part is majority of players have said they don’t like a large part of the changes and the people of that development team + the admins don’t actually care if people don’t like it. That one dude with the assassin profile picture said the quiet part out loud literally a few months ago. When he said no matter what nothing would be reverted. tldr; development team needs to change. Whatever work they do isn’t working, they aren’t the right people for the job, and they should pass the baton to people who have actual ideas. Nothing just redoing ideas from long ago. (Looking forward to the next resource buff/nerf).

  40. Definitely can agree with this. As much as I hate it, NationStates recently had a nuclear event that seemed fairly interesting and often have events in the spring for April fools day. Having unique events once in awhile, community stuff in the discord as you mentioned, ect would help increase player retention in my opinion.

  41. [01:00 am, UU HQ] Tonight a few separatists, backed up by Russia, decided that it would be a smart move to try to invade Afghanistan (again). Judging by the size and military strength of our country, Russia thought it would get away with it as usual. .. Welcome to Afghanistan BK Russia! Instead of fighting in Afghan-territory, UU leadership decided to bring the war to Russia, instead of wasting their time with puppets; Which lead to UU forces hitting uncovered Russian farms and cities. You stepped on a mine, now you gotta live with the collateral damage. Ah and don't worry about the war. BK is paying for it : )
