  1. Greetings, friends! Almost 3 weeks ago, Coalition A posted two separate public announcements in which KERCHTOGG and $yndisphere both offered their preliminary surrender, contingent on the negotiation of terms. These surrenders marked the fulfillment of demands set by Coalition B as prerequisites for any negotiation to occur and were posted separately as a token of good faith following the near breakdown of the monthly (1st of the month) negotiations. The statements of some Coalition B officials had indicated that the fulfillment of these demands would allow for the beginning of earnest n

  2. Alex. The previous econ update has broken the economy. A list of negative side effects of this update: Raw and refined resources are at an all time high in price, whilst commerce value has been reduced dramatically. This means people have less money to purchase refined resources which are now at a drastically higher value, no ability to self sustain with them at all, and as a result it takes a considerably longer period of time to amass them in order to do anything. Supermarkets, and by extension, the ITC project, are literally useless for anyone but the people with the

  3. Hello everyone, With a heavy heart, I am making this announcement publicly in an effort to be as transparent and forthright as possible. I am taking a series of moderation actions aimed at players in the leadership of the Guinea Pig Whaling Corp (GPWC) and New Pacific Order (NPO) alliances in enforcement of the Game Rules. It recently came to my attention on January 31 that there was an ongoing transaction between the majority of the members in the Guinea Pig Whaling Corp alliance and members of the NPO government. This is a violation of the Game Rules on Real-World Transactions

  5. It is with great sadness that I have to inform of the most recent death to the Orbis community. About a month or two ago a member of Terminus Est's high gov, Stavros Cassadine, told us that he had been diagnosed with cancer. In addition to this, he was also battling a heart condition. Recently, his condition severely worsened and he had to go through multiple surgeries, all of which had complications. Nonetheless, like the fighter I knew he was, he came through these operations and just before Christmas came off the ventilator. However, while recovering post-op, he cau

  6. The forces of KETOGG and Chaos have achieved peace. All wars shall be peaced out immediately. We are pleased to report that total damages exceeded the amount Nova Riata spawned into the game, so your welcome. In an effort to continue our benevolent streak, KETOGG is launching a new program solely dedicated to building the self confidence of the Brave and Beautiful BK. After many interviews in which the vulnerable (But still very brave) BK poured their heart and souls out to us over their various insecurities, one insecurity in particular stood out. While most alliances trust their a

  8. Partisan strode into the command tent, blood dripping off his armor and splatting on the ground. Benfro, Daveth, Hughes, James, and Squeegee and the other negotiators filed in behind him. They too, had blood all over them. None of the other Quack leaders already in the tent were fazed. At this point there were few who had no blood on their armor. Partisan took a seat at the command’s circular table. A battle map was laid out and Quack had little ground left. Roses, Hedges, and assorted Swamp creatures surrounded the remaining Quack strongholds. A defeat was all but confirmed. Three pints of al

  9. From the Office of the Prime Minister of the Commonwealth The Commonwealth and it predecessor alliances have prided itself upon a set of unwavering virtues which form the basis of our identity as an alliance and more importantly as a community. Such virtues of loyalty to allies, fairness in dealings, support for those in need and unwavering unity through the harshest of times are our guiding principles, and as such through this global war we've sought to apply these principles in our dealings with any party whilst balancing concerns from both our allies with those of our own. However unfortun

I'm not here to talk about the allegations BK has / is making because to me there not important to me. I am here to discuss my change in perspective and why i began to have a growing dislike of NPO, BK and IQ overall. After being a member of “IQ” for around 2 years I became friends with everyone and so on, most of the people there are pretty lit OOC and i like them however IC is a different story.

Just a simple announcement (Full Disclosure, I'm 44% drunk) but unfortunately we will be severing all ties with The New Pacific Order, effective immediately. We have always been a loyal bunch but We were lied to, for whatever reason....and I don't even care to investigate the reason..or explain the reason...as even in our dissolution..The Horsemen will do our best to be loyal....even to an alliance that doesn't deserve it. So NPO, best of luck to you. I'm sure you will find the hap

  13. Hi everyone, Not so bad news given the title. For the sake of full transparency and communication, I am publicly announcing that I caught and fixed a resource spawning exploit today. All illicitly generated resources were removed, the perpetrators have been banned, and the bug has been fixed. How the Exploit Worked: By setting your tax bracket rate for resources over 100%, it was possible to create extra resources through regular taxation. There was a check in the code for this, both on the user-end and server-end, but there was a bug in the server-end (a typo in variable name)

  14. Recognizing that: - It's call to arms following the attacks by BK and its allies on the $yndicate went unanswered by the New Pacific Order - The New Pacific Order has engaged $yndicate allies and protectorates both during the escalation and throughout the following weeks - The New Pacific Order has signed treaties with longtime $yndicate rivals - The New Pacific Order appears to be complicit in the structural delays of the start of peace negotiations of any kind The $yndicate can no longer view its interests aligned with the New Pacific Order and therefore formally inv

  16. I don't think this has really been stated publicly yet, but we feel that as an alliance, it’s about time we came forward with this. This is going to be a rather long post, apologies ahead of time. Camelot has never held a reputation to be “jealous” of; we’ve been known to be one of the more “immature” alliances. Camelot was started from the ground up, by members that much of the game already disliked or shunned. Over time, we grew a niche under BK/IQ where we would essentially attack who they asked, but we also attacked on our own whims. BK protected us and as long as we did what they a

Feel free to suggest additional ones here in this thread and I can add them to the list.

Hey everyone, Originally I wasn't planning on making a forum post about this, but a combination of MrBooty's excellent post (You legend on beating your depression btw,) in this sub-forum where he spoke candidly about some of his own personal troubles and through the suggestions of several including @Yuiand @MonkeyDLegend has convinced me to do so. Firstly let me preface this I'm not looking for sympathy I simply wish to express my gratitude at the support this community has shown and to reflect on some the recent drama that's made the OWF a very interesting place as of late.

  23. 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.

  24. https://forum.politicsandwar.com/index.php?/topic/27996-252020-major-announcement-regarding-enforcement-of-game-rules Over the course of this war, and especially over the past months, the New Pacific Order has leveraged 100 - 150 billion in illegally obtained funds to push unprecedentedly punitive terms on a large portion of the game. The threat of permawar was made a reality due to this funding, and communities suffered for it. The war was made personal with extreme toxicity. Up until recently, discussions on the terms of our surrender were cautiously reopened. No long

It may take some time to reset all users with negative reputation to the new minimum (zero) so if you're reading this and that hasn't been completed yet, please bear with me for some time. It's been suggested many times that we revise / eliminate the reputation system, and I've finally decided to act. "Downvotes" are really just the laziest way to voice disagreement with someone, and contribute to the negativity and toxicity that is plaguing the game currently. If you disagree w

I want people to know that it is not my own health that has led to this decision, but the health of an extremely close relative. With that being said, and with the name of this announcement, it is undoubtedly clear what this is, but I will say it anyway. Earlier today, I received devastating news that a very close relative of mine has been diagnosed with what they believe to be cancer. It is this news that has led to my official resignation from the position of Vice President of Foreign Affa

  28. Good evening Orbis, I am Ripper, and this is Terminal News Hour. A week has passed since the commencement of hostilities between Terminal Jest and IQ. One of our most talented spies reporters managed to infiltrate the IQ headquarters and record a general assembly of the IQ officers, reporting to their Supreme Leader, Roq. The main topic discussed was the performance of the IQ forces and the current damages sustained by them. (For those offended, remember... We just Jest.)

  29. Players of Orbis, With this latest update, Sheeps has now made it possible to delete nations. My first thought the second I heard this was... someone is going to try to force city deletions on a defeated enemy as punishment. We just ended the most contentious and damaging war this world has ever seen, I dont think its a stretch to say that if IQ had the ability to demand people delete cities, they would have. So in a show of unity, and a small attempt to avoid the crap we all went thru a few months ago, I would like to put forth a pledge that no matter how heated things get, or how muc

At the center was Roquentin’s palatial hamster cage, where the Lords of IQ had gathered to make their ritual offerings of carrots and treaties. At each side of Roquentin’s exercise wheel stood his most loyal advisors: Dio the Dildio and Auctor also known as “Diet Inst”. Roquentin was listening to the complaints of his many subjects who were seeking shelter from the great menac

  33. Boredom has once again struck our shores. The months of inactivity, consolidation and posturing have left this game quiet and boring. We have therefore decided to ride the boredom wave straight into Chaos. People who we believe know how to have some fun, fight and put on a good show. Last time TKR wanted to dance, this time we ask them to surf. Let’s create some waves, put on a show and have some fun. Maybe those who watch may learn a thing or two.

  35. I'll keep this short and sweet. Knights Templar had a member continue to attack Oasis members, their government was asked to peace the wars or boot the member. Last time this member hit us they countered our counters. This was not an isolated incident. The KT gov instead stands by the actions of this member to raid us continually and is in violation of the NAP. Oasis has sent a military response towards KT and recognizes their hostilities towards us.

  36. I was one of the people who was brought in to look at the body of evidence regarding the GPWC money and resource farm to provide feedback to Alex. There's been a lot of talk on both sides about how the action taken was too much, while the other side has said that there was not enough action. That's an indicator of a solid compromise, a reasonable middle. When dealing with this whole situation I want to make one thing clear, there is no good solution. The impact of GPWCs funding of fighting on the last several months can not be addressed adequately, there is no magic fix for what has happened,

Our decision to publicise the logs contained within that thread was strongly influenced by the necessity to address structural allegations that coalition A were "at fault" for peace being withheld. Our evidence-based rebuttal has gone largely unaddressed and the nature of the remainder of this war has become increasingly clear. Considering the punitive nature coalition B's approach to the peace process, it is time to begin addressing the foundation of this war. When Chaos and KETOGG ended their

Though there is no doubt that both sides to this war can maintain the status quo indefinitely, and though we are sure that there may be parties on either side who would view this as a preferable outcome, we believe we must also consider whether this is the most desirable long-term outcome. To allow a chance for hostilities to cease, it is time for a compromise to be sought. In this spirit, the undersigned parties do hereby proclaim their acceptance of the prerequisite Coalition B demand for an acceptance of a surrender once other terms have been negotiated.

I am extremely proud of all of my members and allies over the years that have helped us and allowed us to reach 1000 days old.

  40. Downvotes have always been one of the most important pinnacles of forum interactions, most notably as an easy and quick way to disagree with someone's message and make your disagreement easily known to the world. In light of the recent outbursts of new game change suggestions popping everywhere around us, I believe it is now more important than ever to have them back. Surely this is universally supported by the great majority of our community, and I see no reason why should we not have them. If we're concerned about negative karma farming, just turn it off. Not like anyone cares for that

When I removed "Beige" without warning on the live server some time ago, I did so primarily out of frustration and that is a terrible way to run or develop a game. I've done a lot of reflection since then, and I just want to say sorry for all of the trouble that that action of mine has caused. I do fundamentally believe that Beige is flawed (at least in the way that it had been implemented) but to just remove it with no ready replacement was wrong. I can say that since Beige has been removed, it has sparked a lot of good

After seeing BK remove more than half of its members (with more still dropping), I think it's necessary to point out that this sort of action will not be tolerated by any regardless of Coalition. I really hate what BK does and says, but genuinely best of luck in bringing your community back to order and resolving this situation. If it is a hack, maybe @Alex can intervene.

He turned his view down below and witnessed civilians rioting across the cobblestone streets, setting everything aflame. Suddenly a massive ship materialized from the clouds. The flash of rampant lightning illuminated the heavens. The sovereign, taken by surprise, stepped back from his perch. What could this goliath be? It was going to fall on the city! But… it didn’t. The massive ship was floating in the sky. How could this be?
