    Dial Up War: Propaganda

    Got some hot fresh new propaganda about the new twists and turns of this war and it'll load in just a moment.

    A clarification on "Slavery"

    This doesn't make me less confused

    Because I refuse to miss an opportunity to inflict pain and misery on the incomprehensibly disgusting group of people that are actually able to tolerate what that community has become.

    Have you considered a career in NationStates Gameplay? You'd do well there.

    War Mechanic - Reinforcements

    You could potentially just cap the aid in two ways; Firstly, by not allowing any single aid package to be larger than 15, maybe 20% of the maximum capacity of what the nation can actually hold; Secondly, by not allowing aid packages to push a nation above 100% of their military capacity. So if a 10 city nation was down to 600 jets, but had three generous benefactors- those individual benefactors wouldn't be able to send more than 135 jets each, and the third sender would only be able to send 30, if they chose to send at that moment at all. You would almost certainly need to combine it with a cap on the number of times you could either send or receive re-enforcements per day (probably once for both combined), or it becomes very broken.

    We are here for the Whales

    We do have a developing group of maybe 12 to 15 nations in the 26-32 city range, but even in that tier, they are out-gunned against you, and as expected, largely got blown away in the first hours of the offensive. Grumpy and Guardian combined have 20 nations between 26 and 30 cities, 21 nations at 31+ cities, and another 10 between 23 and 25; all of them pretty heavily built up. I believe the majority of counters have come from the 26-30 city tier, and so those are the nations that have to be our highest priority. Can't have dessert until we finish our vegetables. It had to be done the hard way in Knightfall, too- you blew away CoS, TEST, and the upper tiers of Rose and t$ in the first round of that war. We've got none of those other parties helping us this time.

    Dial Up War: Propaganda

    Made the evening before we joined the war, underneath the assumption that people actually wanted a shot at t$/NPO and thus weren't going to flip their lids about our entry.

    We've yet to even get to that point of the discussion, because you can't get past the theory that this is all an IQ plot, and we can't prove the non-existence of any such plot by showing you 4 months of logs of Thanos and Hilmes (and y'all seemed very set on it being Hilmes) discussing the weather. So instead, the discussion so far has been an absolute abortion of an Alliance Affairs thread that hasn't seen the participation of anyone from either NPO or t$ government that knows the exact reasons why we're here; I can't imagine why anyone in their right mind would want to touch it. Behind the scenes, Buorhann told us that t$ is quite literally dead to him, and the Syndicate's embassy on your server has been closed before anyone was prepared to sit down and even try and have any significant conversation at all (while we were still organizing first strikes and counters). When I tried to restart the dialogue after the game-side stuff had quietened down, I was shown the door. Until things are calmed down, I'd be surprised if anyone else tried again. Now you're here telling me that the game itself is at risk of death. Stopwatch reads 16 hours since the war started. I appreciate you have played an awful lot of browser based nation simulators, but you might just be putting the cart before the horse here.

    I sorta get where you're coming from, Scarf, but I don't see that here. Only time I've truly seen it work out that way was when I was playing a Russian clone of a much older nation sim. The playerbase was about 50/50 English/Russian. A lot of the Russians felt that us English speakers didn't belong there. Took them 5 or 6 years to get rid of us, but by that time, the admin had abandoned the game and not communicated with the players for at least 2 or 3 years. In this case, I can't even quite compare it to EMC/old Syndisphere (i.e. t$, TKR, BK, Guardian, Mensa). That group wound up fighting the same war 3 or 4 times before we eventually decided that a; we were bored of it, and b; we were unlikely to win the next time it happened, so we voluntarily splintered. While looking back, there were indeed secret treaties and whatnot that would have come into play should the other side sought revenge, in the end, EMC successfully broke up. This war has significantly different sides to any previous war, even Knightfall; while I wouldn't be surprised to see many of the same parties facing off again, there's nothing yet to suggest that the next war will be identical.

    Let's not forget the real crime about what happened today.

    When I last looked, BK and friends don't have a single nation above 1800 jets to attack you with. Not sure why they'd picking slots on you.

    Not quite war propaganda, but I felt like everyone should be able to enjoy it.
