    Thanks for confirming my suspicions. Glad I have that out of the way.

    Multi Report

    Nation Link: https://politicsandwar.com/nation/id=142925 Nation Link: https://politicsandwar.com/nation/id=134944 Rule Violation: Multiple Accounts. I believe this is a friend, who said s/he wanted to leave with a big masterstroke, as well as one who claimed to me that having two overlapping accounts is not bannable. I'm just posting this because, in my assessment, there is no evidence that these two accounts are in any way linked, and I want to see whether this report would bounce or not. I myself am not certain of the correlation, and I don't have hard evidence of such things going on. But I'd like to see what happens now that I've submitted the report. If you're wondering what triggered me (I've suspected this for a while), it's "Adjudicator".
  5. The difference between a gun and acid is that guns are easy to use, relatively glamorous, and easily lethal. In practice, I know the intent behind the 2nd amendment as well as the pleasure of shooting firearms. Unfortunately, I think the core of the 2nd Amendment has already been bypassed (small arms are mainly suppressive fire IRL, with grenades, HMG, and other weapons doing the majority of the killing). The fact is, small arms aren't that useful against people with Level 4 body armor; you'd need precise and aimed fire, and there's already military countermeasures vs snipers (counterbattery radar linked to mortars).
  6. Gun ownership should be restricted to groups ("a well-regulated militia"), not to individuals, and gun owners should treat their guns the same way a Kendoist treats a Katana. We shouldn't have guns getting into the hands of bad / dumb people, or dumb accidents involving guns, and in return, we should allow gun owners to operate silencers (important safety requirement) and automatic weapons on ranges.

    ROSE HAS BEEN COUPED

    Congrats, Zevfer! I'm honored to have met you.
  8. On Discord, Auctor clarified that he meant to say no one cares, although in my view neither the above zinger nor the Discord zinger were of sufficient quality. <Auctor Zingers3

    Cloudy Garden Party

    Does it mean that, #1, Rose will destroy Sheepy's plans for PnW #2, Rose will doom all of humanity by destroying the Shadowlord (Leo) #3, Rose will fail to cure The Brotherhood of Clouds' Black Scrawl Disease?

    CNer. Also, what's wrong with a 5 city nation running an alliance? It beats having a 29 city nation that uses the rest of the alliance to fund his nation growth.
  12. I used to have a line in my alliance affiliation wishing death upon my own alliance.

    If you could...

    I'll leak information. According to IQ sources, TKR-sphere was apparently successful in getting Vanguard to stay neutral in this war through diplomatic entreaty. Likewise, Vanguard was not actually an IQ puppet and, while closely linked to IQ, there were elements that wanted to go their own way.

    Put another way, they'd have new and unique relations with their own existing sphere. The point is, the more (active and at least semi-competent) gov types you have, the more egos and arguments you get. In my experience, a lot of former protectorates end up hating their former protectors. The deepest feuds are often the ones between former allies. The benefit is more that by making a sphere more "top-heavy', the sphere becomes more liable to break apart. And that's the most common way to form a real new sphere; i.e, TGH-KT bloc didn't come from nowhere, it's essentially a splinter of Syndisphere.

    Except that the more independent alliances there are in a sphere, the more unwieldy it is and the more likely it'll break up. In another game, we observed than MDoaP blocs of 5 or more alliances were usually defensive spheres, given that it would take far longer for the bloc partners to reach a consensus on an offensive strike. 3 or so alliances were usually offensive, on the other hand, as it was easier for the core bloc to make decisions. Likewise, we saw the recent dissolution of Vanguard as a formal bloc. Even if a micro were to become part of an existing MDoAP bloc, it's no guarantee that it would stay within the MDoaP bloc indefinitely.
