    Do Ayyliens and Whales mix?

    I stopped at page 2 and have no idea what's going on in this thread, I'm just here for the rep. BK Bad, Dynamism Good.

    underinflated resssources price

    Everyone here is missing the point. Supply and demand might explain why resources market is so low, but the man is asking about resssources. Something fishy going on with those, yes sir.

    The Stormlight at the End of the Tunnel

    At long last a proper theme! Who had even heard of Game of Thrones anyway? Now I can look forward to our eponymous series actually being finished 😁

    Prefontaine Preponderance Ponderings

    People just need to focus on relative, rather than absolute growth. If your goal is to be #1 and not to have a specific, ever increasing city count, then suddenly war becomes a perfectly valid, and indeed necessary, mechanism of achieving that. Even leaderboard chasers could focus more on beating down people near them in the rankings vs treating everything as a PvE grindfest. Of course, the latter is less risky, especially for entrenched leaders, so it doesn't happen. On another note, somewhere in this thread (can't remember now), it was suggested that betraying your friends for the sake of dynamism is bad and will result in nobody willing to work with you. I agree completely. But fighting people you get along with != betrayal. Nobody is saying you need to string a friend along and stab them in the back (a la tenages plot against Rose) to be dynamic. Having a clean break with people you once allied with, and treating them as new competitors to take down, is not betrayal. The problem is the entrenched idea that you shouldn't 'give up your friends.' I agree, if you consider someone a friend you should be there when they need you. But facing a war in an online browser game isn't them needing you. Competing against one another in said game isn't giving up the friendship. Its not an attitude we see outside nation sims either, else no group could ever play Risk or Monopoly. Hell the first people I attack in any online game are usually the people I know. In the past we used to have a lot of atwar games to kill time outside PW, and without fail the closest friends would be at each others throats within the first few turns. People here seem to have a hard time separating themselves from their in-game personas. We're not nation leaders, the actions taken purely in game are not done by us IRL against others, but by our pieces on the game board. But because there isn't a game client with graphics, we forget that. The biggest hurdle to having a Hyper Dynamic TM environment is the pervasive notion that OOC friends = in-game allies.

    SNN: Tangerine

    Damnit TKR, must you take everything that made us special? First you cramped our style as another fantasy series themed orange alliance, and now you even leak? That was the one thing we were good at...

    Ridiculousness at its finest

    Gotta watch out for those loters man, I hear they're bad news.

    I actually with Alex on this one. VM is meant for people to temporarily pause playing while they have other distractions IRL. It's not meant to avoid wars. Nor to paralyze alliances by taking control and them VMing, so that regardless of further politics / negotiating between players, it is now impossible to actually do anything for 2 weeks. It's pretty clear VM abuse, and I think we should be more strict on that, not less (especially with wartime shenanigans). If he had stayed in power and tried to hold the alliance hostage, raise the taxes, etc, that would be another thing and he absolutely should not be removed in such cases. Maybe he should have just been forced out of VM, but he definitely should not be allowed to VM while the sole leader of the alliance.
  14. I technically never posted an abdication, therefore I have been King for the last for years and everyone after me was was just LARPing. Besides, I'd never let one of those damned Valyrians on the Iron Throne.
