  1. Hrmm, here's a completely off the wall / radical suggestion: how about ground control restricts opponent to using 2/3rds planes. Ya know, instead of tanks killing planes... 🤔
  2. Bruh. You just blew $25bn that could have been used as WC, sooo congrats I guess? What happened to "Arrgh are going to surrender and take out loans"? 😂
  3. Eh... I think you're giving them too much credit. The impression I get is that swamp actually believes they are accomplishing something. The reality is Swamp is utterly ignorant of how piracy/arrgh works, as evidenced multiple times in this thread. Damage stats are currently: $4,545,804,884.07 vs $25,524,539,178.83, which is approx. a 5.61x damage ratio in favour of Arrgh - for comparison Arrgh vs. TKR was roughly even. Leaving aside the flawed premise of the plan, the execution itself has been absolutely woeful.
  4. TIL was at war with TCW... But seriously please edit, this is extremely offensive - my damage ratios are way better than swamps 😢
  5. Also suggestion to some of the swamp members in this thread: before calling pirates 'retarded' and other such delightful ad hominems - maybe ye of such high IQ might want to consider actually learning how piracy works first. Maybe then you might understand that a pirates rebuild costs are virtually non-existent - a months worth of pirate level infra can be easily covered in a single inactive raid, rebuy of soldiers/missiles is a single ground attack or login bonus. But otherwise, please do continue telling arrgh how they are idiots who don't understand how piracy works 😂
  6. Lmfao. The dude who thinks pirates takes out loans.... calling Ripper ignorant of how piracy works? .... 😂
  7. But I would download a car 🤔
  8. Yeah, no. Been tried plenty a time. Most recently by NPO/Goons, who couldn't accomplish it even with GPWC money printing. Subjecting yourself to an attrition war with arrgh while the rest of the treaty web is chilling / infra printing money, yeahh.... big IQ stuff. No offense.
  9. Uh yes? Pretty much since the changes were introduced. Last war even swamp/hedge were saying the new mechanics were ridiculous as they were steamrolling TCW planes into dust.
  10. Genuinely the strong impression I get is these casualty adjustment threads are going to become a reoccurring theme every few months because the new war mechanics are inherently flawed 🤷‍♂️ In an optimal world would take the previous GC system (2/3rds planes) and make the adjustments which should have been made to that system rather than pressing ahead trying to fix a broken illogical system which (at least imo) shouldn't have been introduced in the first place. Will any of this happen? No. But if you want feedback that it.
  11. Sure, if you plan on staying at 3 cities then makes sense. But if you're building cities then yeah you're going to place more priority on stuff like MLP and the urban planning projects. Tbh if it had been introduced pre-score changes then there would probably be more people running it; but with the current system most mid/upper tier pirates will use the slot on something else.
  12. Well the catch with pirate econ is that its of more use in lower tier raiding where there is an abundance of targets; less cities = less project slots and there are several projects which you would prioritise over pirate econ. Once you start getting into mid/upper tier the relative value of the extra slot diminishes significantly; at that level making $$$ is far more about quality of targets than quantity.
  13. https://politicsandwar.com/nation/id=230974 ---- Screenshots as follows: The Sieg Heil gestures are pretty self explanatory but additional context re: the flags:- - bastardized celtic cross w/ red background commonly used neo-nazi symbol/flag - the flag in the middle is the flag used by the puppet government in serbia between 1941-44 during nazi occupation - combat 18 (the '18' is derived from the 1st + 8th letters of the latin alphabet i.e. hitler's initials) is a neo-nazi group originally formed in the UK - currently listed as a terrorist organisation in Germany &am
  14. Not really a valid argument. If you let someone with 0 mil beige you its because you are sitting on them and deliberately not beiging yourself (or just plain incompetence) - now that you mention it might actually be a good way of encouraging people to finish wars like they are intended. Anyway, I think this is a reasonable suggestion given the introduction of project + comparatively to the amount of infra that can be destroyed more efficiently via air/ships.
  15. Really you would have been better off just not posting anything at all: the only thing this thread has accomplished is embarrassing yourselves 🤷‍♂️
  16. Which would be the most convoluted explanation possible: a bot capable of tracking hidden transactions (e.g. spy ops / purchases) / infra + land levels over time / domestic policies used when buying infra + projects / military replenished over time (with adjustments to price of said military units in line with changelog updates) / daily login bonuses / etc. etc. Orrrrr..... Occam's razor. The most simplest solution: There is an exploit. Now considering it's 100% accurate as of each turn change imma go out on a limb here and suggest it might just be the most obvi
  17. ^ 100% Truth Ridiculous. Assume you are talking about yourself? Real raiders are motivated by profit not oppressing people - there is zero interest in permarolling anyone; ironically the sort of behaviour you describe is far more likely to be carried out by those in conventional AAs.

  19. Yeah... admin who implements changes without having a clue what impact its going to have on AA warfare. Seriously. Well since its pretty clear there is no point making any suggestions or commenting on anything: can I ask the community at large to give consideration to cancelling the global nap - two months is too long to wait before an inevitable curbstomp and the inherent flaws of recent changes become self-evident to Alex. Sad state of affairs when the input/feedback from the community at large seems to be completely worthless, but there you have it. Global war now and maybe there
  20. And my point is context is important: if you look at this in isolation your PoV makes sense. But if you look at this in the context of dialup: its understandable why t$ has grievances / feels this apology is somewhat insincere.
  21. Unless you are a reroll, assuming you aren't aware of what went on during dialup. Basically the inverse of what you just described - IQ (incl. Camelot riding on their coattails) having no intentions of negotiating in good faith. So its interesting to see how the script changes now the tables have turned. That said, however belated this is; at least its a mild improvement over certain alliances still engaging in the gaslighting and apparently incapable of admitting any sort of wrongdoing during dialup.
  22. The cost of war vs. the relative benefit of gaining a treasure essentially means that there is no incentive to pursue conventional war over a treasure. For example: most recent war Arrgh attacked Umbrella Corp. and did $1.2bn in damages - and thats in a 2 day war with a micro who was barely in the top 50; with wars involving larger alliances that number scales significantly. In short its just not worthwhile AAs pursuing war over treasures; furthermore if you buff treasures to the point where it is actually worthwhile the treasures themselves would need to be seriously OP. The issue is, yo
  23. Well put it this way: I wouldn't post a bug report if I wasn't 100% sure he was being taxed. I can get Ripper himself to confirm this and multiple other commodores who were periodically transferring his taxes out of the bank. Again, we have 0% taxes otherwise + all the other transactions are direct deposit/withdraw (i.e. the bank is kept at zero) so absolutely we would notice money going in when there is no corresponding deposit. Anyway I will speak to Ripper and get confirmation of dates he was being taxed from. Yeah ikr.
  24. 100%. I know he was paying taxes because we were transferring them out of the bank regularly (and all our transactions are otherwise just direct deposit/send so you notice tax going in when the bank is otherwise kept at zero). Is it plausible that deleting a tax bracket could delete the records? Only thing I can think of really. Overall not that big a deal: we can probably work out how much was paid in by going through the bank logs manually; its more just to highlight it, we run 0% tax most of the time so like I say not really a great concern but other alliances might find it more signi
