    European States withdraw

    Yeah it's a bizarre situation, but I respect them for choosing to fight when they had no skin in the game and could have easilly stayed out. I'm not sure how much truth there is to the claims they were looking for a protector, bit I imagine it shouldn't be too hard to find one after demonstrating activity and willingness to fight.

    European States withdraw

    As far as I can tell, all the KERCHTOGG responses seem to be either positive or just expressing bewilderment. Considering none of us knew who they were or that they were even in the war fighting with us, I'd say both are appropriate responses. They did well, its just funny finding out for the first time someone is fighting with you right at the end lol.

    European States withdraw

    I mean, to my knowledge they are not allied to any of us nor were they coordinating with us, so it's not that surprising. They seem to have done quite well though, so props for that!

    New social issue

    I did, and much like Scarf, came to the conclusion he would be better off there. There are no meaningful social or government policies in this game, its not what PW is about. If he wants to have an IRL debate he is free to post it up in the off topic section. As it is, there is no reason for this post, if it can be charitably called such, to be in Game Suggestions.

    How long will this war go on for?

    We are taking this to punitive levels never before seen: Leo and Roq are going to have to be my friends IRL. Honestly though I'm not sure punitive terms are the norm. IQ side lost in ToT and none of us received any punitive terms. Some of the knightfall terms might be described as such, but I don't consider those particularly punitive either, on the whole. Even if one wanted punitive terms, there remains the calculus of if it is worth paying the price to get them, and if you can even afford to pay that price yourself in member apathy if the enemy chooses to just drag things on forever. There have been reps and harsher terms in the past (I think BKs reps against Rose might be the largest?), but even before that there were some examples of people avoiding them, albeit at the cost of prolonged damage/income loss in the interim.

    Fake Polaris Suffers A Severe Blow

    I built my own stat tracker as a side project to work on to keep from getting rusty. It's only for SK and less featurful than NPOs, and it's already a mammoth and pain in the ass to keep chugging. I can only imagine how much more complex theirs is. So I'd give them the benefit of the doubt on any of those discrepancies. It would be fairly obvious to many of us if they were trying to fudge the numbers, and it's super easy to make a little mistake that cascades into weird issues.

    Blatantly Self-Serving War suggestion Volume 2

    Not that I begrudge IQ their tactics, but they should really see an ENT about that.

    You might say the war became TUE much to handle.

    Terminal Jest CB talk - about FR

    Trolling and still a better CB than anything NPO has put forth.

    SNN: Inquisition Civil Wars

    So, put aside for a sec whether or not what sphinx did should count as rule breaking under current statutes. Do you really not see the difference in circumstances? One strategy is to attack enemy coalition nations in the hopes they will perform poorly and beige you, when they have every incentive and order not to. Often while also launching missiles or trying to get in damage on your way down, with any units you might have an edge in. The other is to attack an alliance in your sphere - the protectorate of your direct ally - and offering to pay them to deliberately assist you with beiges. There is a world of difference between relying on enemies to frick up, and paying friendly third parties to assist you in circumventing your enemies. It's flabbergasting to see people try and justify such obviously sketchy behavior. Sphinx has fricked up repeatedly now, be it for your side in by leaking your intel, trying to skirt the game rules by paying people to beige him, and continuing to spew stuff to Akuryo as if he were Nixon thinking himself untouchable by his own recordings. When Gandalf was being Gandalf I admitted he fricked up and we deserved all the shit we were getting. When the AC leaks happened we didn't try to justify it (aside from Blake explaining why he thought it prudent to speak with Boki), nor pretend we didn't frick up yet again. This particularly sketchiness with beigeing - which sphinx tacitly admitted by feeling the need to leave TCW to cover it up - didn't need to reflect back on anybody but him. By defending him you chose to make his actions your own.

    How many farms?

    I believe no ammount of farms will currently support your nation. Most of the games alliances are currently at war, with many nuclear weapons being launched. This leads to a temporary spike in global radiation, which cuts down on food production. I imagine food production, if above 0, is very low in all continents. Expect that to continue until a month (two?) after the war ends. I don't remember exactly how long the effects take to decay. In general though, food is quite cheap (around 100/unit in peacetime, albeit more expensive in wartime). It is generally better for you to focus on producing more valuable resources as a new nation and sell those on the market to make most of your money, and buying food with the proceeds. Depending on your infra levels, selling valuable raw resources (like iron or bauxite) may be more feasible than producing refined resources (like steel, gas, or aluminum) which would require your cities to be powered, and require you to buy raw resources to fuel them. Idk I'm not an econ guy though. I would recommend finding an alliance, which can provide you with some aid to stabilize your alliance and some advice on the best practices of nation building. An alliance can also help protect you from the raiders that will inevitably come your way when your beige expires.

    People here tend to shit on new alliances, but snark aside, they have a point. This is not a regular mmo where you can make a small group some friends and see where it goes. Without a solid grasp of game mechanics and connections to other players (for a good protectorate), your growth will stall and you will be ripped to shreds by raiders. This is not a forgiving community. You are free to try, there's not really any harm in it. I just hope when it doesn't work out, you recognize that and join an established alliance rather than quitting. There is always the possibility for round 2 down the line.
  15. Hey, we know that even direct allies doesn't always mean something But the rules have been pretty consistently applied not just to hitting your own AA, but allies as well. Attacking a prot of a direct ally runs quite close to that line, especially considering he felt the need to ditch his own AA when doing so. To say nothing of the payment. Whether or not you think that skirts under being an infraction, it's definitely not the same as attacking enemy nations with a disincentive to beige you, in the hopes that they will mess up and do so.
