  1. Thanks for the fight, and for all parties for helping to make the war and peace talks far less toxic than the previous global. Lets hope a new standard has been set from henceforth. We had fun even if the numbers were sadly insurmountable. @Denison Except you Denison... you know what you did RIP my villager.... >_>
  2. Thanks for having me Thal @Thalmor, I ended up VC'ing for a couple hours since I enjoyed it a lot, plus the Q&A from everyone listening was great. Looking forward to listening to next week's show. Actually... as you were listening you'd know we did in-fact hash out a fair bit of good stuff. But yeah an end to the war is soon, I have have a few more things I want achieve namely destroying more of FARK's stuff. Still can't believe how one alliance can be so bad, that they're negative in net damage not even a week into a blitz when they were the aggressor......
  3. At last it all makes sense now.... Hopsan was trying to warn me all along..... But I was too much of a fool and Idiot to listen... Six has been trying to destroy us by running UPN so poorly to get us rolled....... UPN was bad enough but the thought of fighting wars on behalf of Six and his 4782 multis sickens me...... Clearly Theresa May Matt has some explaining to do when I'm slightly more sober. Good luck in your Investigation Master Hopsan, the conspiracy deepens.....
  4. Oh for sure, its lonely up here in the mega whale tier.
  5. Yeah I slept in and missed update by a couple hours.
  6. Dreadnought still has a decent sized ground force and navy left after the first round. Whereas Wampus is a full 6 cities above him so it would probably take you guys at least 2/3 rounds to be in a position to keep Wampus down and finished off.
  7. Congrats on your treaty upgrade.... also that Emu make it go away plz... >_<

    World Ellie Day

    Just wanted to post some good news regarding this, and showing some of the good work being down to eliminate the illegal Ivory trade. https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/environment/18-million-worth-of-ivory-to-be-destroyed-nparks-launches-new-centre-to-combat I think its all our wishes that as more pressure from governments is placed upon the countries which are the primary consumers of Ivory products and measures taken to eliminate poaching of Elephants and other endangered animals. That we could begin to see a resurgence in numbers of these animals and others which have been unfortunately on a downwards trajectory for sometime.

    World Ellie Day

    @Yui Happy World Ellie Day!!! Gives Yui lots of cake The just and merciful Romans destroyed Carthaginian civilisation to save the Ellies from being used in war.
  10. Good to see two great alliances signing some ink. Good luck to you both. Enjoy the Imperialism and Chocolate, it will now be state mandated.
  11. And this right here is why "Clarke did nothing wrong" is still as relevant now as it was in the past. Pineapple is great on Pizza's, and yeah there's a special place in hell for the madmen who enjoy Anchovies and other fish on Pizzas.
  12. @Lord Tyrion @Alexio15 Congrats on your successful campaign to bring clean green energy to the masses, and moratorium on further coal mine expansion. Wish you a quick rebuild current and former TCM members.
  13. Good luck Evernt, though it seems your chances are the same as the coal industries in 2020.
  14. If all you've got is a hammer then every problem looks like a nail. This change is going to cause more playerbase attrition than even NPO's wildest fantasies could cause, with the ability to now perma sit on players.

    War Slot Filling

    Alex this has been debunked multiple times already. I provided context from TCW government channels showing that Dillon had every intention on getting an IT but he was unaware of the passive defense bonus from cities. Sidd on the other hand did not do any sort of low unit count attacks so that's categorical incorrect. How does raiding a nation help them? Medici is still inactive nothing Dillon and Sidd did would in any way "help" Medici. Dillon switched to one barrack because he didn't want to change his build he was after the beige loot that's the full story. Its completely false to claim they were slot filling. The fact that people who IC don't like TCW and are against this ruling should show you that is wasn't the right call and should be reversed. There's a massive difference between 2 raids happening in peacetime and an alliance war. We'd have far more important things to worry about than one inactive with a lot of loot when our attention would rightfully be focused on the alliance war. My replies errs on the side of caution, its a sad part about this game that people go out of their way to spin things to get moderator actions against people whom they don't like. IQ and others did that in the previous war and so are Borg and the rest of e404 doing it here. I would not authorise something like this during an alliance war precisely for that reason. However the two situations aren't even remotely similar, an alliance war is an official declaration against other alliance. The very act of raiding an "allied" nation during an alliance war breaches the "preventing an attack" part. No such war exists between TCW/e404. I find it extremely distasteful that many other alliances have done this same exact thing and not being punished (Mind you they should never be punished for it anyway since its not breaking the rules), yet you liberally apply punishment to us including a blanket nation strike on both TCW members when Sidd didn't do anything which you claimed were rule violations. Again you are making assumptions about events without all the context and facts. Many times when I've found targets with a lot of loot I've switched my war policy to pirate just before I get the beige. At the end of the day how someone chooses to conduct a raid isn't a concern for moderator action. You apply a framework of rules to a situation and assess if said actions constitute a breach. You made a judgement with next to no context (Sidd getting a strike for instance when he didn't use low unit counts is an example of that) and just applied it uniformly. Alex you're contradicting your own rules here, you can't claim that they beiged purely to "skirt the rules to claim it as a real war", when this isn't anywhere referenced in said game rules. The rules state clearly that if you are not fighting a war to a victory, then it counts as slot filling, they followed the rules you wrote to a T. You can't then claim "moderator discretion" for a judgement when people have no background information to tell them if they're breaking the rules or if they're in the clear. That is extremely unfair and unwarranted. Now...Medici is still inactive it provide ZERO benefit for his beige time to be prolonged, the intent was always to loot him this was fine before when others did it but not now for some reason..... Its a strawman to include references to "alliance wars" as a justification these moderator actions when the two cases aren't connected in the slightest, others in this thread and myself have given you information which PROVES their intent was to loot not to prevent wars. Its pretty obvious Dillon and Sidd broke no rules, and this is just punitive enforcement against TCW members. Apologies for typos or any errors... Just woke up.

    War Slot Filling

    So you're admitting you planned to send more people to attack our alliance? You aren't Arrgh or any pirate alliance you can't have your cake and eat it by hiding behind your treaty partners when you put your foot in mud. You obviously didn't learn your lesson from TKR for raiding Chocolate Castle. TCW Bank has nothing in it we empty it to our offshore. You just contradicted yourself. If the screenshot is unrelated to the Medici situation why did you choose to include it? Unless you were attempting to get me nation striked as well which is a pretty clear case of moderation as a weapon I might add. Honestly pathetic, that you need to resort to actions like this..... Yes you just explained what I already said. Good job for paraphrasing. Here is a log from TCW Government chat about the hit: As you can see Dillon recognised his mistake immediately and made changes to ensure he got the loot. Nothing here is breaking any of the rules. As per our DM's @Alex These are the rules for slot filling. 1: Dillon and Sidd had every intention of fighting them to a victory. 2: They did not prevent others from attacking. I don't understand how that works? How can you state that even when players end up fighting a war to its conclusion, that it still constitutes slot filling? Nothing about that is recorded in the game rules, it says nothing about not being able to raid allies. It simply states that wars where the attacker appears to be feigning attacks to prevent serious wars being waged against the target are the sole case of slot filling. The logs I posted above prove they were after loot and that they did not feign any attacks on purpose to prevent others from taking slots. You are penalising two long active and long standing players for a simple mistake. Worst of all is Sidd didn't make that mistake only Dillon did, he got full Immense Triumphs: So his strike was certainly unequivocally unwarranted. 3: Sidd and Dillon were after the loot, something many alliances have done by raiding their inactives. I recall Partisan and t$ doing that to one of the ex-Coalition Whales who was inactive. t$ dropped out of the AA and raided him constantly, even when Arrgh was raiding him a couple times. If you want to loot a nation of its resources you need to beige it, so you're penalising two people for following the mechanics the game has in place. 4: What use is beige time for someone who is inactive? We did not even mention beiging them so they can't be looted as a reason for the hit. If you want access to TCW government channels so you can read the information yourself just let me know. But Dillon made changes to his build to add one barracks so he could raid, that is why he had a low solider count. The bottom line is none of my members slot filled. I ask if you can do what's right and revoke these strikes.

    War Slot Filling

    Ok so lets break down this confused and misinformed post. 1: The rules over slot filling imply you can't hold a slot to prevent someone from attacking another player, and that if you have no intention of fighting a war to a victory then that is classified as slot filling. Our members did nothing of the sort. They fought their wars to a beige and broke no rules. 2: That screenshot is regarding the attacks we launched against Agon, nothing to do with "slot filling" Medici which is BS. 3: When they hit they did a GA with 2,000 soldiers, but it was unknown to them that this sort of army strength would fail to get an IT GA, because of certain coding reasons. A problem they rectified in future hits. So no this isn't slot filling. Honestly you should re-read the rules before making posts.
  18. Congratulations you just discovered supply and demand. If people are willing to spend pixel money on credits instead of using IRL money then that's their prerogative.
  19. @Adrienne No one can ever doubt your dedication for TKR, your leadership through trying times helped build TKR into the benchmark for a well oiled efficient alliance with an even greater group of members. We had our ups and downs in our relations but I'm glad many of us got to know you and your gov over the years. You left leadership when TKR's position is stronger than its ever been. Enjoy retirement Nizam you've certainly earned it. @Benfro You've got some big shoes to fill Benny. ;,p
  20. Why are you trying to throw me under the bus? I never leaked those logs to Partisan, I've actually never seen your roll t$ until disbandment comment even. But if you want stuff I can deliver. Also you never mentioned anything about removing the term at all, since you know we butted heads over it a fair bit on the peace talk server. I made mistakes in that war which I regret and I have apologised to people in person, but I never supported any sort of BS peace term.
  21. It doesn't like Cyrillic either.... Likewise,
  22. Yes Lory leaked the merge? Your point is? And for good reason, you can ask him yourself. He never wanted North Point to merge and was treated like crap, not the first disgruntled NP member I might add.
  23. You need to improve your comprehension skills, Odin never leaked the North Point merge to Shifty, so trying to lie about things won't help. Changeup's news server had publicly stated who leaked the merge logs.
  24. You seem to think I'm worried about what people think of us, when quite frankly at this stage I couldn't give a rats arse, but you do you Aky, it certainly is amusing reading your forum spiel, at least you liven this place up with your very "witty humour". Also I see your thesaurus/internet Archaic English translator skills are on point with your last statement. Friendly word of caution though they can never quite replicate the flair of an old language, but A+ for effort.
  25. From memory I think the only time I used the term "best alliance" and "TCW" in the same sentence was describing who I felt was best at surviving curb stomps. Beyond that I'm well aware of my own limitations and my alliance's, if you think that somehow equates to me being "schizophrenic', then you've got a pretty shallow definition of that mate. And good of you to mention grandeur from voice chats, I seem to recall you talked incessantly about recruiting thousands of players from Reddit to flood North Point's ranks, what ever happened to that plan? Or did that eventuate into nothing like the countless plans people have made build the Titanic 2, or to attempt a voyage to prove the world is flat?
