    How long will this war go on for?

    "Calling me on lying just means I have to keep being full of it"! Yeah, no. You've had a million chances to do anything different. None of that is on anyone other than you. You're the number one alliance in the game, and your setup is such that 150 nations will do whatever you ask them regardless of how much sense it makes. You have more than enough power to play precisely the way you want to, and that's precisely what you've done. It's not the fault of anyone else for recognizing it, sorry. Want to make a change? Do it. Otherwise stop the disingenuous whining. Don't forget: everyone was bending over backwards for your supposed desire to do something new. You're the one who crapped on it when you made a lame excuse to hit the same people you have for the last, what, 4 major wars running? Or at least that's what I'd be saying if it seemed like any of that desire was genuine, anyway. If that's what you're bringing, yeah, go back to being quiet. No one wants to be bored with it anymore. Or at least make your disingenuous hegemonic garbage a sonnet or something, if you can't be bargained with on the actual content.

    Just in case anyone actually still reads your posts at face value, for some reason: That's incorrect. You and your allies planned to hit slursphere in mid-june, "coincidentally" at the same time as BK's sphere would have hit ours. The secret agreement was between Kayser and your government, and that in addition to your dogged loyalty to BK (which if it was anyone else you'd decry as a paperless tie) makes it pretty clear this war would have happened as long as you felt you had an opening to do it. You didn't need an explicit agreement with Covenant to know you were going to help BK; that had nothing to do with TKR, because anyone who can read can tell you cobbled that "CB" together out of months-old nuts and bolts and nonsense conjecture. You would have liked to have the luxury of letting BK fight their own war, because you'd have been able to keep HS and t$ on IQ's side longer. But when the facts on the ground changed you adjusted accordingly.

    Peace Terms.

    I didn't mention other worlds or toxicity, actually. But now that you've mentioned it as part of your toxic post referencing another world I start to wonder....

    Peace Terms.

    Yeah asking people to draw art for mistrades was definitely comparable to deliberately trying to run people out of the game. I'd ask if you ever get tired of being full of it but I already know the answer.

    Peace Terms.

    You know, partial credit, because being aware you're a goof puts you ahead of the pack actually.

    IQ declares on IQ

    I am sure UPN is readying themselves to help their protectorate in their time of need!

    Peace Terms.

    "Thank you for providing proof that I'm wrong. I'm aware of it, as evidenced by the fact that I've done nothing about it. You guys do it more, though, and my proof is nothing." Your "opinions" don't matter if you do less than nothing about them.

    Peace Terms.

    Fun fact, part of the impetus for creating Chaos was how disgusting some of the alliances in our previous coalition were. In my opinion the worst alliances were BK, Acadia, and UPN. Funny how it's always the alliances who need other people to do their heavy lifting that seem to have ideas about punishing other communities, isn't it? I'm glad Sphinx found friends that suit his play style.

    Blatantly Self-Serving War suggestion Volume 2

    It's not about change or not having change in the game. It's about if it's possible to catch up for newer players. And it actually is. There's no cap on how much money you can pass to someone. Updeclares work just fine, and everything about the way the growth curve works (IE: slowing as a nation gets larger) favours newer players. Same goes for the war declare ranges work. And don't get me wrong. As an older player, I think that's great, and exactly how the game should be set up. If the same whales are sitting around whaling it up, that's a political issue: there's nothing about the mechanics that dictates that that has to be. Even in the present war, the only thing that really stopped the largest whales from getting beaten down was in-game politics (and uhhh, I'd posit, poorly handled ones. :P).

    I had this happen as well, earlier in the war. I had improvements stop functioning because of a lack of revenue. I got some cash, and waited until the next turn, and the money was deducted. But there was still an odd 5 or so minute pause before the game seemed to recognize this happened, so I still couldn't attack or do anything.

    A super important suggestion

    It's in the.... other..... thread.....? The crux of the point I am making is that the guy had a racist name on your forum, your mods punished him, and then he just did the same crap in game. You want to ignore literally everything about discord: I don't agree that it's not useful context, but I understand the utility of drawing a line: fine. But you can't say "well, this has worked", because it didn't. You changed his name on the forum, so he upped the ante. A nation strike for threatening to lynch someone.... you can't possibly actually think that is appropriate. Why do you want this person in your community instead of the person he attacked? This is why Kosmo is upset, and I don't blame him.

    This is only true in the most literal sense. Your punishments are inadequate, and that's why your game is full of racism and sexism. I'm laughing at you downvoting me, though. My point was that you don't deal with this stuff properly: the fact that you seem to think childishly downvoting me on your forum for pointing out this isn't the first, second, or eighth time you'd failed as an admin underscores my point. It's actually more than you've done to address the substance of my arguments, though, so it doesn't surprise me. No one wants you to be the discord police. We just are grossed out you continually allow this to happen in your game, and on your forums. If your rules allow for this, they need to be changed.

    Acting reasonable doesn't do anything either.

    Changes to score calculations -- Need input.

    Lol no. Don't even know where to start with this one hahahaha. To the point of the thread? I think cities should count a bit more for NS calculations and troops a bit less. The real problem with the way ns is calculated presently, in my opinion, is that you can declare and then double buy over update, which leads to silliness. It might even make sense to count unbought troop capacity as NS if the player is below max on that troop type, thinking about it. Edit: but honestly, I'm averse to changes at all. Admin is weak, and tends to make them half cocked in accordance with who whines the most, and I'd sooner have that sorted out in the meta.
  15. Spaceman Thrax

    A super important suggestion

    You did not read the other thread, I am assuming? Multiple problems with the same guy, across the forums, and the actual game. That has nothing to do with discord; there's enough without any of that. That's why Kosmo is pissed off: Alex is saying "if you bring evidence I will handle it" but every other time people have, he did not take enough action to prevent it from happening again. And it has literally led to a player quitting the game because they no longer want to be the target of racial attacks, which I shouldn't need to tell you, or anyone, is messed up. Edit: I'm replying to you because I know you're actually someone who does care. I've given up on Alex. His statement only makes sense if you divorce it from the actual context of what happened, here.
