  1. Using missiles and nukes to damage the cities of enemy alliances, while one is on the losing side of an alliance war, is one of the only ways to effectively fight back if you're outnumbered and outgunned. This game doesn't need the few strats there are to be nerfed. The war system needs a complete overhaul first, for such an idea to be considered. There is no compelling reason to nerf missiles and nukes. Any argument presented is just pixelhugger cope.
  2. If these claims are true, evidence should be provided. Can screenshots be provided of such misconduct?
  3. Hey Buorhann! 2 things real quick: As your war ally against TRF. I completely agree they deserved it. That war contributed to that community crumbling to dust, and the game was better off for it. My only regret was that we didn't roll them longer. Second, I believe Panky was saying that the next offensive war TGH is involved in should have either completely even numbers or be at a disadvantage. I think your analysis of this war as a dogpile is incorrect. Perhaps you can clarify on your definition, though?
  4. My morale has been depleted, and I'm ready to surrender.
  5. Is it a problem for someone to have a large warchest from which to declare and fight wars with?
  6. I think this is an excellent point. Nuke turrenting is a legitimate and fun playstyle. There's only loss if it's somehow made significantly harder to execute on. We need more features and playstyles, not less.
  7. Nuke turreting is one of the few effective ways for the losing side of a war to fight back after the conventional war has been lost (which can occur as soon as the opening blitz is launched). I don't really think it should be altered unless there's some very comprehensive updates to how wars are fought overall. Like how fighting conventionally is a skill, nuke turreting is a skill, and countering nuke turrets is a skill. In this already very limited game, we don't need any of the few playstyles to be patched out. I really liked @Who Me's suggestion of making ships have an anti-plane combat value, or some kind of change to spies overall. I think those are much better places to start.
  9. I would also want a 7 month NAP if I had to fight us for 12 hours.
  10. "Why, yes, I inject my IRL religion into this game."
  11. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Romans 8:31: What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? Seven years ago, on this day, the Knights Templar was formed. I set out to create an elite fighting alliance that would completely change politics. While my vision wasn't brought into reality under my tenure, those who came after me were successful. The Knights Templar, in spite of its smaller size, is undisputably one of the best fighting alliances this game has ever seen. Additionally, we've persisted from a time of bipolarity unto a time of multipolarity. Mission Accomplished Proverbs 27:17: Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend. This quality is due in part to the excellent people we've had come through our doors. People who were smart, competent, and hard working. People who dedicated themselves to a community and a cause. These people sacrificed so much time and energy to online strangers, to make them the best players in an excel spreadsheet text game. The sacrifice continues to this day. The Knights Templar is quickly returning to where it was in its peak in the 2018-2019 time frame. Our government is some of the best we've managed to put together thus far. Our recruitment throughout 2023 was great. The future is bright, and we thank our government members- past and present. Matthew 10:34: Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. It is only fitting that, on this precious day, a global war ends 12 turns after it started. The Knights Templar was unexpectantly hit, with numbers and forces greater than us. We quickly rallied and fought effectively with our coalition allies to blunt the hits. Our enemies effectively surrendered the next day. To pull off such a counterattack requires skill and dedication, from both the government and members. To have been able to do so after 6 months of farming is also notable. We never lost our edge. This speaks to our continued dedication to competency, and our ability to maintain that level of skill. ~~~ The road to Jerusalem is dusty and cloudy. A host of bandits and heathens stand in our path. We shall press into them and rend them asunder like all others we have these past seven years. Heaven awaits us! DEUS VULT!
  12. I would also want to peace out in less than a day if I was fighting us.
  13. It's easy to hate the rich, but do you have the courage to hate the poor?
  14. You guys should've kept going until you couldn't any more. Muscles tear and repair stronger.
  15. I will assemble a team of my finest men.

  17. Can't let the losing side have all the fun with memes.
  18. 300 hours in Adobe Premiere Pro Plus
  19. In this thread, I've explored the "boutique alliance" archetype. A second archetype I'm formulating is the NPC alliance archetype. Alliances whose lack of meaningful action go beyond the average. Alliances who are particularly incompetent, and have very little projection in the community; yet, in spite of these problems, continue to persist for years. They're just always there for some reason. They never really change, and are just waiting for a party to go and beat them up for experience points. I would consider Fark and Polaris to be historic examples of this archetype. UPN, USN, and WTF are current examples.
  20. I want to thank everyone for replying to this thread, which made by a madman who was under the influence last night. This is a topic I've given a decent amount of thought to for some time, but obviously I did not present it in the best way possible (which was the point. I made the thread live on a bonus show last night). I want to rewrite the thread to better articulate my position (including a more comprehensive list of alliance that I would consider boutique), but the holidays are preventing that. I intend on doing the rewrite and responding to the posts here more probably on Tuesday.
  21. I can provide more clarification when I'm sobered up. You may enjoy the one I did last year more: https://forum.politicsandwar.com/index.php?/topic/33838-hof-is-just-the-best-alliance-ever/
