  1. Tbh, I think this only proves that tS vs Grumpy (in a 1v1) would be a difficult fight and not one that can be won immediately or within a few rounds. Often ignored is the fact that tS only has to drag a Grumpy nation one at a time and that any pinned Grumpy nation can never rebuild entirely by virtue of numbers alone, whereas any zeroed tS nation can rebuild by virtue of there being 100 nations below c30 in eS + tS to prop them back up onto their feet. The underdog mechanics and spy mechanics ensure that military rebuilds are pretty much decimated day-to-day for Grumpy (ensuring they will eventually be ZMd when you also consider the numbers advantage tS has). In tS vs Grumpy, tS's victory is inevitable in a direct war and the fact that c40 costs like 3b ensures that tS will inevitable catch up to Grumpy once their scores of nations slowly (but faster than Grumpy c40s) acquire cities. However, I also think that not wanting to waste a month or two to prove tS can win a legitimate 1v1 is also valid, and damned be the narratives that preach "you are too scared for a fair fight", since I don't recall the last GW or major war that wasn't an attempted dogpile (plus wars lasting months are boring as hell). But claiming Grumpy is near OP and/or invincible, in a 1v1, is laughable, it took about a day to pin HW with BW + Rose, and so it'd take longer w/o Rose, but it isn't impossible. TLDR: BW should be transparent in its CB and just state that as a direct rival to HW they want them knocked down a peg and don't want to fight for 1-2+ months to do so (a boring waste of time tbh), which is completely fine IMO. I just think the difficulty of beating Grumpy/GG is greatly overstated.
  2. Aye, amen brother. Fun that you mention that, the gnarliest ass clappers out there are probably Oblivion these days. Crazy c28 nations.
  3. Absolutely, I was with Grumpy and GNR was a hell of a time, an absolute blast. However, I can fight a war and enjoy it while admitting that the CBs were at least a little "weak" IMO, but I don't think "weak" CBs are a bad thing if they are honest. During GNR, I think SRD was very upfront about Grumpy wanting to fight just to have a blast of a time (which some people might consider a weak CB, but I do not) and that TKR wanted to fight because of DH. I don't think that a lack of treaty ties in a previous war is a great reason to declare war on Rose, but I understand if TKR's disagrees. However, I think in this war that tS is lying to themselves if they think that KT ghosting and SRD banter is a good CB. Nonetheless, as I said, I have no issues with this war being fought.
  4. That is the nature of war, if you are on the losing side of a conflict anything you type or say is a showcase of your saltiness.
  5. Unsurprisingly, what a toxic cesspool forums are during war lol. For an unsolicited opinion, HW probably deserved to be hit for a) being the strongest coalition by combining HM + TKR and for b) recent war-mongering against Rose, and, before that, HM war-mongering against tS (although I do believe Syndisphere also merited a clapping back then, being by far the strongest sphere). Obviously that's what SRD does though, war-monger, but it's still a valid CB when HW is the largest, top-tier sphere and when Grumpy is a significant component of HW. Also obvious is that tS wanted this war because they are direct rivals with Grumpy, and Rose wanted retribution for GNR. Everything else is superfluous, asinine and self-serving propaganda. As it stands, coalitions cry about dogpiles and immediately seek dogpiles, but w/e, that's the political landscape at this point. It would make the forums less nauseating if CBs would just admit that wars are retributions for prior conflicts and to knock a rival down a peg (which is completely fine for a nation sim, hell, how the hell else do you find reasons for war and to shred pixels?), rather than some dumb bs about KT ghosting and SRD being aggressive in back-channels.
  6. Yea, you're right, logically speaking it makes sense that 1500-1600 planes will always shit on 2250 planes, every single time. It also makes sense for one spy to kill 4k tanks. There's truly no middle ground or any room for improvement there.
  7. I honestly can't believe that spies are still allowed to kill such a large amount of tanks WITH 1 SPY AT 50% ODDS (a bit less if the defender has covert, but this is nullified by arcane), and that underdog mechanics are still so disgustingly OP. Are these not considered problems, or might they be addressed later?
  8. Good thing you aren't in charge of any nation's justice system.
  9. Sorry mate, but I don't generalize off of anything you say, however, your statement is a good example that summarizes some of the problems with your coalition's war effort. This is easily observed by anyone who actively fought in the war.
  10. Wow, you just summarized why your coalition lost the war. Hint: zero initiative.
  11. Better AA announcement than most, skip the bs and straight to the point!
  12. Thanks for the fun Roasis + Mystery. Enjoy the rebuild! \o/
  13. This is the point that Malleator and Adam seem to be ignoring for whatever reason. Clearly being able to figure out spy counts is against the spirit of the game, especially if this is the reason why predicted success rate was changed to being >50 or <50 percent.
  14. I think it's simple. The embarrassment and shame of not decisively winning the first round, despite what would have appeared to be overwhelming numbers superiority. Hollywood bad since Rose doesn't know when to military up apparently, have allies who have a bunch of war dodgers and have had mediocre to bad coordination. Thus, fervent cries to the buzzwords of our time are taking place, "DOgPIle", "HEgemoNY", "uPPeR tiER consoLIDatION". Anything to excuse poor war performance. This typology of whining personifies the self-serving bias, anything to avoid responsibility for simply being bad at war.
  15. I think the real problem is how consistent it is, not that it exists. Should be way more rare. Like 1/3 or 1/4 the frequency of what it currently is, rather than killing more/equal planes every attack, when down 700 planes.
  16. Or at least make it occur way less frequently...
  17. I think it's pretty ludicrous that someone attacking with far less planes can kill more of the defender's planes/a near equal amount, in dog fights. I also think the variation in damage spies can do is crazy. You can get unlucky and lose 5+ spies, or get lucky and wipe out 20 of the enemy spies, when both people are at 60 spies using extremely covert. I realize that projects and policies play a large role in this, but I think that variation is too high.
  18. How about giving the option to destroy your own resources, at least to the nearest whole number? When I don't use oil it's a minor pet peeve to see the 0.50 exist.
  19. Keep gaslighting yourselves. I'm sure deep down you really do believe that not fighting an AA you have literally declared war on, for fear of losing, isn't pixel hugging. This is particularly funny given that Akuryo is caps locking the "DoW DOES SAY" when y'all can't even properly follow it. Talk about a super toxic, circle jerking coalition though, when called out on an incorrect aspect of your CB I'm apparently the worst type of person, along with some other nice insults.
  20. Y'all a bit dense. As mentioned repeatedly, the actual reason for not fighting Roth makes sense, but it is pixel hugging to avoid following through on your own DoW for fear of losing pixels. The circle jerking and lack of acknowledgement and recognition of this point is just sad at this point.
  21. What the hell are you on about? I know you are completely incapable of staying on the topic at hand, but all I'm saying is it's funny that your own coalition's DoW has you fighting against TCW protectorates and yet you are literally too scared, too pixel hugging to actually fight against all TCW protectorates. You're quaking so badly at the thought of COA and another sphere being involved that you can't even follow through on your own DoW LOL. Gotta save those pixels though, am I right? Edit: for the record, if I cared about escaping 'cheek slapping' or 'pixel hugging' I probably wouldn't have been with Syndicate for nearly five years before joining TCW lmao. I'm just here to have a good time, build a few cities, shed some pixels and meet people along the way. Why not see the varying perspectives from different spheres, including those I've fought against?
  22. What do previous wars have to do with if someone is being a 'crybaby salt mine'? For that matter, what does any of this have to do with what I said? Nice argument though, "TCW's conduct last war, in relation to other AAs, makes you questioning me now a crybaby saltmine." I'm sure Roquentin/NPO would be proud of your argument if they were still around. I get this war, and understand why it's being fought. I just think it's hilarious to see you typing in caps about how the DoW 'DOES SAY' you'll hit protectorates but in reality you're meek cowards too afraid to actually do good on that threat in full. If you can't see the humour in that, I can't help you. But you know, keep using your caps lock, that will definitely solidify what you're saying and make it unerring. @Cynder yes please. As a pixel hugger, and a cry baby this will make all the difference in the world to me.
  23. You seem like the sort of person that would call a waiter a simp for serving a woman water.
  24. As suspected, cowards with a poor CB. If you declared war on Morningstar because they are a protectorate then Roth would have to follow by that reasoning. It's ok to admit your CB/reasoning is stupid and flawed. It makes sense to go after Morningstar sure, but obviously not for the reason you said. It's ok to say the truth instead of bs meant to jerk yourself off with. If you were wondering, the truth would be, "we attacked because we can and we aren't scared of the consequences, unlike with other protectorates. We just think Morningstar is easy to bully."
