War. War Never Changes.

Recommended Posts

Oh my god, this thread.

 

If there was a program that could convert forum threads to videos, this thread would become a porn flick. The title would read "Young Korean Woman Commits Suicide by Bukkake."

 

Careful there.

The blitz and its outcome has literally nothing to do with the faith of the negotiations. You try to win the war, until it's over. Are they supposed to pull punches because there is a channel of FA people from both sides posting cat pictures?

 

You're really reaching on things to hold against the other side, Roq. You're the coalition that hit them, aggressively, with no CB (okay, twist my arm: a super secret one that is definately garbage), and tons of broken intel clauses all over the damn place. You were given more civility than your side gave, and I suspect even you know it.

I think people are bothered by the fact that IQ continues to insist that their nonexistent CB is a legitimate one. Using no CB would be better than trying to legitimize their excuse.

 

Ding ding ding, we have a winner!!!

 

Here have a cupcake.

 

On a side note, if there's no changing their minds, maybe we should actually behave like the big bag hegemoney they make us out to be? Cause !@#$ it, why not?

Eh I'm pretty sure a lot of people would still !@#$ about no cb even if IQ said they had none.

I mean launching a CB-less war isn't great but it's better than their current story

Fine. I get it. It's cool when THE HIPPO leaks chat logs, but when ~I~ do it, it's just not cool right? RIGHT?

 

FINE.

You could...

 

...but then nobody would join or stay here outside of you guys playing with yourselves.  

 

There are times I wonder if Roq says what he says on purpose to provoke you guys into self-destruction.

There is only one good CB in a game like this - to win.

 

If you declare war on people for any other reason, then meh.  Go do something else to make better use of your time.

That's some beautiful irony considering IQ was a perfect example of self destruction...

My honest impression is the guys over there are getting bored of social strategy games ever since their legacy in the other game. 

 

It gets boring after a while.  They're just burning out now, not self-destructing.

I don't think it's burning out considering npo continually tries to overthrow the big bad syndisphere. If it's boredom, it might have something to do with the 100% taxes and hard core city and infra capping preventing them from doing anything in game during peace time.

I can only speak for myself, but I could respect it when NPO went in without a CB or even a DoW in the Silent War. They just owned it, without BS or excuses. That's respectable and I didn't say shit then.

 

Here, Roq is trying to push out some thinly veiled and wildly inconsistent narrative that makes no sense. If Roq came out and was like "We !@#$ed up how we handled the beginning, middle and end of this war. We will aim to do better next time" that'd be something I could respect.

Except that's not the truth. There's a legitimate CB, your sphere has it. They're either choosing to not share it with you or don't consider you important enough to share it with. Take your pick.

You got me Kastor, I think I'll wallow in sorrow, steal some banks, double deal with both sides and generally be a joke now.

 

Unless you're referring to the super secret intel which is definitely gabage, in which case: lmao

I don't buy that because 100% taxes should make econ management easy for newcomers.  They should join the alliance, not have to worry about what to build, and just follow simple orders.  Boredom often comes from development taking forever, and having to think about exactly what to do.

 

That style of gameplay doesn't apply to everyone, but some people like it.  They join games like this to be part of something bigger where they can succeed in being part of the action.  Making the action happen is a pain in the neck to them.

 

Peacetime should be exciting from building team chemistry through social activities, and teaching people how the economy works.  If anything, it should help groom proteges to succeed those in power. 

 

Again, we need to remember this is a game.  It's not like in real life where private property is connected to free time and living a life of luxury.

Eh, I for one do not give a single shit about casus belli. It can be legitime or not who cares.

 

War is war and war is fun.

 

However, if you claim to have a legitime reason for war I don't really see much of a reason for why you'd mention some fancy schmancy reason or other and then not divulge the evidence you were basing it on. But each to their own.

 

Can we please just all go back to waring in a month or two?

If the other side already has your CB then why not share it. I know you claim to be hiding the identity of someone but if the otherside have it then they know the identity... so the only people not in the know are... the neutrals and people that you claim are being used. Might not Bollocks and co. be a little miffed at being kept in the dark if there is a legit CB?

We can already assume tC and Mensa don't have it, so ill infer right now that either Rose, TKR, or t$ has it. So are you trying to tell us, Roq and Kastor, that Syndisphere, as close as they are (which according to hippo is very close), is choosing not to share this smoking gun CB with each other? I call bull. Also adding on to what Senatorious said, if each side has possession of the CB alfeady, what's preventing you from posting it here?

Probably the fact that it doesn't exist. :ph34r:

Is that why roq himself claimed npo isn't all that active?
