  1. Nobel, Reubenia (politicsandwar.com) This one and others from other nations show as 1 day old when nuking
  2. Some of the older cities I'm nuking are reflecting 1 day old cities when they are actually 1000+ days old. This is only reflecting on the nuke/missile pages as far as I'm aware.
  3. This is honestly the truth of the matter. We may see small tweaks or QoL updates, but we will likely not being seeing any major changes for years if ever. A large portion of the changes including the two you've mentioned as useless or unbalanced projects have come directly from Prefontaine, the dev team is effectively a sounding board for his ideas and he may or may not barely tweak his original thought based on feedback. Alex is effectively AFK for development processes right now. 95% of his time is spent on moderation issues when he logs in. re: Sam Cooper's suggestions - I think the old meta was shit as well. If you dislike planes now, wait til you realize planes-only was a viable meta before these changes. I personally think the blitz advantage just needs to be nerfed across the board and beige needs to be given after every loss or expiry. It'll make wars a longer grind but it'll also make wars competitive rather than a slog. People arguing that it'll make numbers matter too much, they already do. I'd rather be able to fight back a little rather than just get swarmed and have to nuke.
  4. No no no, you're missing the point. TKR is orange, orange man is bad. Please stay on-script Thalmor or the FBI will be visiting your server again.
  5. I love the world cup but it's hard to ignore all the problems with Qatar. The stadiums were built with slave labour and they've placed all kinds of bans on things like playing music, dancing, leaving "your woman" unattended, etc. Just recently saw they're banning alcohol. None of this is your fault but I just can't get behind the world cup this year.
  6. Straight forward suggestion. People are turning to third party scripts that hide nation descriptions, but if you're not the lucky few you'll find quite a few people whose nation description can double or triple the size of the webpage. I imagine this isn't friendly for loading times or server load either. My thought: 1 image per nation description, no embedded links like youtube videos or other things, 200 characters of text. Or minimally limit it to 0.25x the size of the total page. This way it's not doubling or tripling the size of a page with 500 images that 1000x1200. The PnW Wiki or Nation Biography thing exist for longer stuff.
  7. Literally look in-game dude... Eclipse isn't tied to anyone Cataclysm hit. It's not a counter, it may be a secret treaty at best. A no-CB hit on Cata at worst.
  8. yikes. I get t$ is just trying to wardodge, but yikes. Eclipse isn't tied to Midgard in any way shape or form. They no-CB'd your (for another 71 hours) ally aggressively. Wouldn't be shocked to get some logs with Eclipse and T$ planning all this out beforehand at this point.
  9. I was just trying to buy some gas
  10. Forgiven, but will you bail out your ally that just got hit within the 72 hour period?
  11. Guess Eclipse chose for you. šŸ˜•
  12. Literally anyone still holding onto notions that t$ may not be declining off a cliff: here ya go
  13. Poachers, mainly seeking ivory for illicit black-market deals, have come to Africa to hunt the Elephants to extinction. TKR takes a hard environmentalist stance on this and in honor of David Attenborough will not allow poaching to continue on our watch. The elephants will not be harmed, their tusks will remain safe, and their habitats unspoiled. Our planet and our legacy will be judged by how we treat the natural world and preserve it for the next generation. #SaveTheBees #BeeSphere #SaveTheElephants
  14. I'm going to keep bashing my head against this wall because I'm bored rn. I don't think anyone is particularly shocked by the statement: The official discord absolutely sucks. The organization looks like someone who just made a brand new discord and left it for years, there is no personality/fun/roles/emojis/etc other than a bare minimum, the mods have been questionably chosen and even more questionably held accountable for bad calls, in general it sucks. I think this next statement is also not controversial: The forums are dead. Gone are the days of 2015 when people will come post 50 threads a day, argue out to 50 pages of comments, and generally make the community feel alive. If I were a new player, the first place I look to see how a nationsim is doing is its discord and its forums. Based on those two pieces, I'd probably not make a nation in PnW right now. Which I think is sad because I do actually enjoy this game and the community - but we're rapidly devolving into CN with little-to-no administration. The future of games like these is on platforms like discord, as well as in the game itself with stuff like bulletins. I still think we should keep the forums around, but they will continue to be a dry place bereft of solid content just due to the nature of platforms like discord. People want to jump into the drama rather than wait six days for a reply, it's why we play a political simulator. Right now, the community is heavily decentralized - news servers are the closest thing we have to a gathering place for all players. New players, however, are completely left behind by this. How would you ever know that RON is the spot where chatter happens? You wouldn't without significant effort. So there's my reasoning, here's my suggestion: Completely revamp the Official Discord for Politics and War: Go nuts 'hiring' on new volunteer discord mods and ensure they're reputable within the community rather than one-offs or controversial figures. Make sure they're active. Have a senior mod team that is more flexible on activity but harsher on qualifications that review decisions. Make it fun and inviting and most importantly - make it a space where both current and new players want to be. Add a section for alliance leaders (which now get a role) to post announcements for their AA. Add a section for In-Character debate Add a section for OOC debate Basically have sections for every major piece of the forums including game discussion, new player help and introductions, and even mod issues like ban appeals or warn appeals. Utilize your community which has been B E G G I N G you to use them. Have some people do "radio" shows in the voice channels, have voice channels available for people who want to vibe with a music bot, or play other video games together with randos from the community. PnW's main appeal is the socialness of the playerbase - LEAN INTO THAT. Host discord events like credit giveaways or the official awards show (which we did this year, good job) Pls. We can have a cool central location like the forums used to be again, or we can keep using third party discord servers and disconnecting new players from the existing community.
  15. The clarification changed this from a downvote to an upvote. lmao
  16. Give the dev team a few more months
  17. If you're at a loss as to "wHy dO mEaN oWf posters always downvote us" You guys talked recently about introducing an inactivity modifier allowing nations of all sizes to raid inactive nations - thereby allowing higher city counts to participate more if they wanted to be raiders. Then Keegoz posted a thread 25 days ago that got maybe 0.001% of playerbase to respond - without any clear indication as to which direction they really preferred the game to go. 26 people voted no to any beige timers for VMers, 37 voted yes to the 24 hrs. There are 10,000 nations that play this game. This thread is now talking about "wrapping up raiding" by c15 and adjusting raiders into the "main game"... Who asked for raiding to be nerfed (again)? What data was this decision made with other than a random whim? Lmfao. I wonder how many unpopular changes a development team can really pump out before people say screw it and just leave the game. I'd highly advise you start putting polls into the actual game itself so players can actually see and interact with the feedback threads/polls. You guys are going to kill PnW by making constant unpopular changes that don't even address a real gameplay issue.
  18. Since we're so close to its release, we should probably include the MPP in this data. I'm sure many bought one in lieu of a city in the last few weeks.
  19. We must all eventually grow beyond our mentors to achieve the greatest version of ourselves. Congrats on growth, even though I know splitting is probably an emotional choice. Good luck to both parties moving forward.
