As it does not appear that Aries is returning to the game and he still has an empire on LU and some countries there on LU are still doing quite well I would like to propose the following to the GMs. A player may bid on his countries or even perhaps have a war for the remainder of the Aries empire on LU (similar to what would happen in the real world where an empire is on the verge of collapse -like the Ottoman empire and numerous other examples). This would then take these countries off the GM's hands. It would be a shame for these countries to go to waste especially as some are doing quite well. I am reposting this under the LU forum as well.
Any thoughts on the above?

I strongly disagree. No game should sell the assets of players to other players. Period.
It doesnâ€™t matter if those countries are doing well or not.

I agree with Letsie. Michael, unless there is 100% certainty that Aries will not return, I don't recommend touching it. I find it disrespectful to even ask..â€¦â€¦..especially since Aries is an esteemed player and has contributed significantly to this game.

Letsie has a point. What if Aries came back? It would be a real mess. As long as he's paid up his subscription, the countries are his, whether he logs in or not.
As for the War idea. Since Aries is over war level 3. His countries are already exposed to war. If you can get through his defences, then you can take the countries.

I would pay money to watch you try to take his countries.
Please advise if you do.

Daniel is correct the countries remain Aries for as long as his subscription lasts or if you can actually take them as Johanas says.
Remind me guys as I'm getting old now and my memory isn't as good as it used to be, I've been here too may years now ha ha, was there a player that Aries struggled against way back when, who he actually couldn't beat?
| Saturday, May 25, 2019 - 02:34 pm |
spot the spelling typo - too "many" years, see what my aging years does to me.....
| Saturday, May 25, 2019 - 10:37 pm |
Only making the suggestion guys. His empires on both Kebir Blue and Fearless Blue have already disappeared and are gone. Just did not want the same to happen to his empire on LU. No disrespect was intended. I actually have greatly admired Aries and feel he has made great suggestions and contributions to the game. I have often always vouched for him on the forum.
Sorry to disappoint you Johanas but I will not be trying to take his countries by force. I believe there was a player, WildStallion, that Aries struggled with but can't recall his/her name.

Hey Horsey! Do I not get a hello????
| Wednesday, May 29, 2019 - 04:46 pm |
I tried to find Aries on my Facebook from a post he sent me in the past. I couldn't find it. I will continue to try to get an update on him to see if he is okay. I really miss him. He was always so much fun to talk to in Simcountry chat and throw shoes at... at least when he wasn't grinding them up in his shoe grinder machine! lol
| Thursday, May 30, 2019 - 09:42 pm |
I do not think we should touch it.
He was sick and we should just wait and hope he will be well enough to return.
| Friday, May 31, 2019 - 01:34 am |
Hugs my son. He is so wise... just like his Mom. :-D

I agree, best we hope he returns. It's impressive it lasted this long.

I ---STRONGLY--- disagree with the GM selling any players assets.
In the past a player named Aaron "TattooPriest" died(Even Simcountry players left messages on his Obituary page)
A similar topic was discussed. It was finally agreed by the player base that its better to let a huge empire devolve and fade away with dignity. I feel the same belief should be used for Aries.
Worst case if the countries take "to long to fade" or linger many months past any membership or requirement needed for the account. I would support the GM deleting or removing Countries or CEO's in order to prevent future issues. The GM could delete the countries in question and in return refund some GC as compensation and transfer any "cash" assets in the deleted CEO/Nation into a players direct trading. That way if some time in the future Aries does return even though his "assets" may be gone, He would have lets say a few hundred GC and 100T to rebuild.
With that in mind I would support such an idea and I think it might be something to consider since this isn't the first time such an event has happened. However, selling any player assets I will strongly protest against.

And I also agree with that. Scavenging and selling off a falling empire in somebody's absence just sounds wrong...

Jan, hello my friend

Hi Horsey! Great to see you again! What mischief are you up to these days? :-D
| Sunday, June 16, 2019 - 05:31 pm |
Did we agree on a solution for this problem?
Asking for a friend.
| Thursday, June 20, 2019 - 01:24 am |
@Johanas -yes not to touch Ares empire -which you yourself had suggested and stated. But go ahead if you dare. Perhaps you should bend a knee now to the war god.
| Thursday, June 20, 2019 - 01:57 am |
Hmm perhaps you are right.
Have you checked on it lately?

Glory to the Pinktator! The only true war god.
| Saturday, June 22, 2019 - 02:53 pm |
Since no one noticed.
LDI captured the bulk of Ares empire on LU. The rest disbanded.
HAIL THE PINKTATOR.

I was wondering where Aries Empire went. I guess that answers that question.
I've noticed some product dumps on the market on LU. I wonder if the two events are connected.
Who is LDI?

I hope Aries comes back one last time and reeks havoc hahaha we all know he could !!!!
| Sunday, June 23, 2019 - 12:05 am |
Aries taught me to play I miss him dearly
| Sunday, June 23, 2019 - 12:43 am |
He had quite a lot of products that dumped when his CEO and main country de regged. That is why the market is in flux.

Daniel, LDI is an old LU fed from 2008. It was led by Pink Floyd, AKA the Pinktator. The fed has a long history of warfare, and was responsible for destroying Valde Subsidium Fed and Laguna. The Pinktator quit the game after winning that war. There is prophecy that he will return one day, and we are now a memorial cult dedicated to his worship in hopes of fulfilling the prophecy of his triumphant return.
Some LU and LDI history can be found here: https://simcountry.fandom.com/wiki/Little_Upsilon
Glory to The Pinktator!

I was a member of Laguna's Valde on LU. SCOWL! lol
| Monday, June 24, 2019 - 08:36 pm |
It's okay. LDI forgives you. That war just proved what everyone already knew at the time: that Valde Subsidium was a paper tiger . They had very impressive population, production, and military numbers. Some even 10x that of LDI, but it was poorly utilized.
| Monday, June 24, 2019 - 11:06 pm |
lol Well I was only adopted because at the time Laguna wanted Blueserpent in his fed, and well I was part of the package deal. BUT my shoes were renowned weapons in this game!!! I threw a LOT of shoes at peeps! :P
I think the LDI war and the days of the Pinktator were before my time. It is so great to come in and talk about the game's history. I wish our current player base could appreciate it and start making memories of their own! :-D

Start up on LU. LDI is active on that world. I'll send some corporations your way.

Lu was my home before I prob will come back this time tho I just want to be a problem child a North Korea always stirring somthing up
| Tuesday, June 25, 2019 - 08:42 pm |
lol Relative of Mine.
I wanna know what peeps will be writing about 10 years from now about Simcountry. I wonder if I will be remembered at all?
| Monday, July 1, 2019 - 11:11 pm |
@John Galt and Johana Bilderbug - I hope Ares the true war god comes back and whips your collective butts and wipes your Pinktator temple off the face of LU. The Pinktator sucks lol.
@The Wicked Lady - I am quite certain you will be remembered.
| Tuesday, July 2, 2019 - 12:05 am |
I can't speak for my comrade in arms but for me alone.
I am ready whenever.
| Tuesday, July 2, 2019 - 05:25 am |
The Pinktator is the only true War God. LDI fears no federation. Our economic engine sustains the largest weapons and ammunition arsenal in Sim Country. Our military might allows us to defend our interests and project power worldwide. Our belief in the glory of the Pinktator and the promise of his triumphant return sustains us.
Glory to the Pinktator!

<-- Well I've taken over entire empires without even having fired a single shot! Oooooooh I'm a war goddess!!!! :-D As for Aries...I always kicked his booty with shoes!!!! I miss him too. He was always a joy to talk to.
@ Michael I certainly hope I am remembered in fondness by the majority. There were players who absolutely HATED me. I dunno why??? I'm so lovable!!!! *SMILES WICKEDLY
