    We are here for the Whales

    My dear friend from Rose makes thoughtful points, rare on here these days. So I'll respond before taking off for another couple months of ignoring the OWF. 1) Dwynn suggests fair fights don't create a superpowersphere. 2) Dwynn suggests uncertainty and abundant war is desirable. I understand the motives behind your statement. I too, would like to be able to go toe-to-toe with an equally-sized opponent over an issue rather than getting into repeated globals with the entire game on a side, which require longer downtimes for preparation, and are almost always more destructive for both sides. Superpowerspheres have always limited the options in play for smaller alliances. However, psychology, political science, and economics IRL all make it abundantly clear that human nature hates both uncertainty and abundant war, especially war with high losses. We desire the ability to engage in smaller wars. That requires less protection. But as soon as ONE alliance began signing another alliance to a treaty to fight a third, that Eden was over, and we all left the garden. The slide toward hegemonic spheres is almost inevitable without adjusted game mechanics to make it less attractive. I'd agree that in a game, fluidity, change, and an ability to have an immediate, observable effect on your surrounds is desirable in gameplay to preserve interest and activity. In other words, take a large part of the politics out of the game, or reset it/level it at intervals. But I think you need a different game for that, unless Alex makes some massive changes...in which case it's already going to be a different game. Hit me up on discord if you want to talk polisci, human nature, economics, and psychology! Y'all have a fun war.

    Oh, the irony. Really, none of you complaining here can be taken seriously being salty about what BK does, because, save a few alliances that lean paperless, your entire group has done the same thing repeatedly, for years. But I don't expect most of you to be objective enough to grasp that. 😂 And seriously, has none of you ever read Von Clausewitz, Machiavelli, or Sun Tzu? Going into a "fair fight" is the utter height of stupidity for anyone that wants to achieve something beyond pointless destruction.

    The Hobo Express - Part 7

    🤔🤔 ...are you suggesting that Rose dominates TSphere? Whew lad. You can call NPO/BK IQsphere and not have an issue because they're so aligned. But T$ and Rose?? the same hivemind? ...or did you legit forget "The Enterprise is a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Syndicate."

    The Hobo Express - Part 7

    I'm smirking so hard right now. A ) Polaris has no major sphere, we're not big enough to be the center of anything that important. Thanks for getting triggered though. B ) Rosesphere, NPO/BKsphere, and TKRsphere, arguably the 3 of the 4 most important groups in the game, haven't even had a visit yet. That's the point you apparently missed. Also @Buorhann Re: disbanding. Polaris will likely be around long after TGH is as dead as Mensa. We're older players, stubborn, and quite set in our ways, and oddly, we don't all want to be Emperor, so we remain supremely stable. You're welcome to explore a merger if you feel otherwise, but you'll need to make a stellar offer. We could offer you the official "Resident Grouch" position in The Polar Horde, though, since ours has recently vacated his post.

    The Hobo Express - Part 7

    I'd offer them an invitation, @Buorhann, but you and I both know we'd just keep them isolated in a white padded room and give vague non-answers to any questions, so it'd likely be a waste of their time...and yours, if you were hoping they'd find anything out for you.

    The Hobo Express - Part 7

    Well. That's that, I guess. @Kevanovia I was starting to think this might get interesting, but y'all have a definite pattern. The coverage of KTsphere has been exceedingly thorough, and you're most of the way through the rest of the old "paperless" alliances. I had high hopes to see more spheres explored in detail when you went to The Enterprise, because I've discounted your stop at BC as comfortably visiting your old home, but no, back to the "paperless" comfort zone it is. 50/50 Arrgh or Valinor is next? Are you having trouble getting major alliances to let you in? Enjoy this crude illustration of your travels, and we'll see if anyone else can see the pattern I'm talking about.
  11. Bwahahahaha. I like. I'll buy stuff on the cheap all day. The only folks really hurting will be the pirates, bank thieves, etc who have no revenue and rely on sales. The rest of us can make an enormous warchest and prepare for Warmageddon, a 200-day war to end all wars...by taking us all to ZI.
  12. I would have been surprised, but SK leaked this months ago. ...grats, Skwidgy. Good luck!

    Alliances that don't raid

    @Angel Lara iirc, MOST alliances don't require participation in raiding. Some do not allow raiding. Pretty much every alliance except GPA (dead, but there are GPA wannabes) has always required members to engage in wars in defense of the alliance, or in furtherance of the alliance's goals. If you want to dodge wars entirely, you'll have to whale up super big and find a fatty-whale-alliance...but lately even THEY have been warring. NOBODY wants a war-dodger.
