    Impreza's Journal: Entry #2 - Bank Drama

    This why they’re a scam. Another popular tactic I’ve seen is take investor’s money for shares and the founder giving themselves a bunch of shares without any money being put down. Of course when it’s liquidated a month later they still pay themselves out for their shares.
  7. There are three actual banks that aren’t get rich quick schemes. Almost every micro bank has shady practices like this.

    The Future of PnW

    Well they needed it changed because they backed themselves into a corner. When you tell your members "we will never accept the terms", what are you going to do when you actually have to accept the terms? Thus changing wording helps the cognitive dissonance of folding and having all the initial terms be accepted and being able to tell their members that holding out was worth it. I personally don't have anything against sharing the logs, but that's not a unilateral decision on my part. However, this is the very first thing said during the first peace discussions: SRD 11/18/2018 Finally cracked 200k infra damage done, with my goal met, we can now end the war i dont know what the hold up here is tho, white peace for everyone, and we let IQ go tear a path of terror thru all of orbis. So yea that's the tone it started off with. The no-show/fake treaty is being conflated a little bit. Essentially they were arguing to extensive lengths about how being called a war dodger is derogatory blah blah blah till we finally just put forth the exact same term with every instance of war dodger replaced with war-hero. It was more to highlight how the wording was irrelevant as long as the effect is the same, which it is looking at the first terms and the current ones. The no-show incident needs a little context. Essentially the talks had a repeating cycle. We would meet, they would try to to talk down the terms, we'd say no. They'd walk away for times that would get shorter and shorter each time. However one time they set up a meeting time and no-showed their own meeting, and then trolled our side when we asked if it was still on.

    The Future of PnW

    SRD started the trolling, and really set the tone for what peace talks would be. Throughout the entire treaty talks it was apparent that EMC didn't have any leverage, but you might have thought they were winning the war based on the way they talked. Coalition A was ambivalent to ending the war in December, they gave the terms then, and if peace was signed it was signed, if not oh well. As you can see there was no real change in what they signed from what was originally given to them. These factors all tied into the trolling they received, since frankly, they deserved to be trolled based on their behavior.

    Small Quality of Life Improvements

    Alright here's a few QoL improvements I thought I'd suggest, others feel free to add their own small changes. Nothing suggested should change major mechanics of the game. 1: Get rid of decimals from infra. Makes rebuilding a pain in the butt. Either just round up or down from infra damages. 2: Get rid of decimals from resources. Keep everything to even numbers just makes it easier to deal with. 3: Remove VM nations from alliance stats. Makes the alliance stats a more realistic representation of the alliance as it currently is. 4: Bulk Buy infra to a certain level

    This works too solves the same problem

    The Future of PnW

    Long wars are a fundamental shift in the meta though. Leaders now have to balance how long they can sustain. That was Paracovents weakness was they lacked the economic and political willpower to sustain wars. You're putting the cart before the horse. Alliances need huge war chests because of the economics update, which is the true reason for wars being more spread out. If there should be wars it needs to be fixed at a mechanical level by either making wars cheaper or increasing cash flows. Long wars are part of a deterrence strategy as well. The first few rounds are when the vast majority of damage is done to the losers, so there is zero incentive to leave at that point.

    The Future of PnW

    Longer wars has been the trend since ToT. AC was artificially short, both sides recognize that. It could have easily stretched another month or two, however as the dominant force in the game at the time was sitting out IQ and Rosesphere understood it was just making us mutually weaker to TKR's gain. Now that the world is shifting back into bipolarity longer wars will be common as major parties won't be sitting out of globals.

    Congrats to all who fought in this war! It was fun breaking every record in the books! Great working with people who are normally across the aisle and to Nerdsphere (lol) for the fight they put up.

    Lol not upset I just am wondering the justification for that beyond “it just is”.

    Good Game Grumpy

    How is two joke terms and the standard VM term stupid? No punitive terms in anyway.

    Good Game Grumpy

    I mean we went into it on the peace channel, and frankly it doesn't matter what you think about it. It's over now and unless you're going to attack Grumpy over this there is literally nothing you can do about it. You're not in control, your opinion doesn't matter regarding how we classify our wars with Grumpy.
