Unveiling the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

Recommended Posts

Intriguing, to say the least.

 

I'll be interested to see if it's feasible to keep this up as more nations become nuclear-capable.

heh I wonder how many people will spy away nukes on their own AA.

 

Interesting way of going bout this though!

"This will definitely work" -Kastor, on Rose's blitz

"This will never work" -Kastor, on a dope-ass idea

Alright you've got me there it just seems foolish to think this'll work.

 

Say you have 6 members in this league, and James II goes over the 1/2 city mark you've imposed. You, naturally, start to spy his nukes away. One of you gets caught, and Alpha starts to kill your spies for doing this. All of 1 of the league's members spies gets killed. You now have to wait 25 days for them to even become remotely helpful to you. Now you're down to 5 members, repeat this.

 

Plus once you've got a fix on a member, it's easy to keep their spies down to prevent you from killing their spies, and I doubt any alliance will step in to stop if you're actively attacking their spies.

 

Don't get me wrong, it's not a terrible idea, I think the 1/2 count is great. Enough to do damage in times of war but not enough to cause -100% food in every continent. But announcing it like this, imposing your will onto a sovereign alliance just isn't going to work. Reminds me of the Citadel council(no one go on white).

There are plenty of people who can spy away others nukes while avoiding their own AA.

So let's say a Roz Wei member gets caught spying away Alpha's nukes.  There's still members in other AAs who will continue to do their LoEG duty.  Now Alpha is more than welcome to spy retaliate against Roz Wei, but...  will Roz Wei tolerate that? =3

 

That's the genius of having members from all AAs contributing to the cause of keeping the nuke production to a reasonable level.

Does this not in some way take away from the rights of a nation? I mean imposing such a rule would leave some to believe that they are not "free" to do as they seem fit. Not arguing though, this does sound interesting to say the least.

Sounds like bad juju for Alpha and Nuclear Knights.

Embargoes! Embargoes everywhere!

Ahhh the truth is not shown into light, its ok for SOME nations and people to have freedom to "spy away nukes" but is taboo and not ok for others to produce a large amount of nukes. You all really that butt hurt over the nukes and food thing?

Interesting idea. I wonder if this will band together individuals who believe in freedom from nuclear limits. That'll be cool.

I suspect most established nations keep a stockpile of food.

 

 

During (nuclear) wars, the uninvolved are unfairly punished. The smaller nations, therefore the newer players, pay the largest price. So it's more about trying to keep the influx of new nations from suffering unduly than it is about being "butthurt".

What I'm curious of is if alliances will protect its members for operating a "league sanctioned attack" and getting identified.
