oo, oo, here's another one

Protip: Be Coherent
| Thursday, June 16, 2011 - 11:07 am |
lol no josie its not you im talking about, actually im surprised you took time out of your ussualy rational day to insult me, howevor i did notice you didnt deny any of the stated facts. Just insulted to deflect from the issues. your actualy one of the better veterans that ussualy treat people with respect and courtesy. And no i wont cry history shows im the spanker not the spankie as time will tell :p
now lets say why im back. you guys said games boring now and there are no wars, i came back to give you what you wanted i have been gone a while but not forgoten. perhaps thats why only two people chose to comment on that post.perhaps they can tell who i really am by my rather provocative writing style only two fish ran in foolishly and swallowed the bait lol
Now open sesame lets address your smart ass comment. 1. it was an immatation of someone who you all probably know from their constant whining and crying in the forums the last 4 months (yes ive been gathering intell that long,im bad santa ive been making my list and checking it twice).they themselves are not coherant hense niether was the impresion smart one. try to keep up hun this isnt rocket science.
2. what qualifies you to say you are giving a pro tip you have only gained 2 countries in 300 years of gameplay at that pace ( heres a hint to whom i really am) it would take you 2,400 game years to attain an empire the size of mine the last time i played lol atta boy your really doin good! fear the mighty sesame!the only thing your a pro at is shoving your nose up James,Scarlet and Millers ass and puckering. your what they call fed filler just someone to fill up federations membership your defense rating is 2.0 on your countries your of absolutly no benifit just a waiste of space and loose canon to draw problems to your fellow fed members through your most pro like talent...... running your mouth. Heres a real pro tip if you have no army use secrecy settings to hide that information.
One more Pro tip back for you: create a buffer around your main country and conect your empire dont leave empty c3's in the middle of and on 80 % of your border some newb might stay in his war protection and lob couple hundred nukes all along your borders into the c3 countries you so unstrategicly have been ignoring every couple months causing you millions in deaths and spiraling your economy into a massive tailspin.from the fallout. that could go on for hundreds of years if they just do couple every month effectivly knocking you out of any hope to ever suceed or thrive * smiles
wars are just not faught with armies wise up smart one theres millions of ways to hurt another country besides the most obvious ones, also dont talk like a war player youve played 300 years and your on war level 1 lol what an acomplished warrior you must be.
stick your nose where it doesnt belong ...dont get upset when it gets bent.cause thats why im coming back to take you ass puckerers down to your rightfull place your a bottom feeder not a big fish you hide behind the real war players and talk shit, im sure youll go running to them now crying boo hoo hoo. i know you wont drop your war protection and temporarily drop out of your federation to face anyone mano u mano.
soon i shall drop this country i think * ponders i know about the 12 players that need to face the fist of justice and then ill start building my real country, in meantime i strongly suggest you solve that c3 problem i just so graciously gave you the Pro tip about before someone takes advantage of that very n00bish strategy blunder on your part.
you dont have to like it but you do have to get used to it, the sheriffs back and he dont play with ass kissers that talk tough bully new players and hide behind other real war players, get ready for this game to get a lot more interesting right before christmas save your gift money boys.....your gonna need it. im going to talk and treat you guys just like you do new players, cause well to me you are new players and a three country empire shouldnt talk shit to no one thats pathetic for 300 years of gameplay

I'll pretend to be your friend in chat, whilst at the same time attempting to socially engineer you and take petty swipes that are hidden using game terminology because I don't have the spine to tell you what I'd really like to say in a straightforward manner.
Who am I?
| Thursday, June 16, 2011 - 01:06 pm |
I'm sad that I wasn't mentioned as part of my federation along with Miller and Scarlet. I'll have you know I'm beating Miller on score right now :P
But seriously guys, lighten up
| Thursday, June 16, 2011 - 06:44 pm |
What is this . . . I don't even . . .
So much hate.
| Thursday, June 16, 2011 - 10:30 pm |
I'm afraid that I recognize that writing style from times gone by. Didn't answer the OP because even if I did recognize you, I really just didn't care. Still don't.
As for your enviro-terror threats, whatever. Nuke away. I'm an econ player this time around so I can't hurt you. At least until I get my strats up and running and can play the same silly game back at you. Or convince the world to boycott selling a punk terrorist any nukes to terrorize with.
Or, since it's just a game, I take my 4 bucks a month to another world or even another game. So I can't say I'm afraid.
Good clean war was, and can still be, a lot of fun. The way you talk about doing it is just hiding behind women's skirts action. Yawn. What a man!
There Open Sesame, maybe that'll put the heat on me instead of you! I've got less than a month invested this time around so I've got a lot less to lose. Besides, if this is who I think I REALLY didn't like him the first time around. And I can usually find something to respect in just about anyone.

A old chinese proverb says "a wise man listens when a fool speaks" thats the only reason i read solaris's post. The paranoid ramblings of a schitzophrenic man volume 1. the only thing you got correct in your whole list of dubious information you posted about me is the fact that i do know how to social engeneer * shrugs, rest of your presumptions are totaly false try to deal in reality and facts as i do.does it look like im here to chat and make freinds lol but then again if i was lying in grass like a snake i would befriend you and perhaps even post in this forum board and act as your freind and deny that fiendishly plot youve described i guess to know youd have to read my statements carefully and determine if im a lyer or if everything ive said has been true plays scary music DUN DUN DUNNNNNN
Acordian i really dont know enough of you to make an assumption or state facts about you. congratulations on your point total but points arnt a total indication of a players capabilities as evidenced by wild eyes and wendys level and point totals although there totals are not high both have proved to be very good players.ill try to observe you more.
I see scarlet has told his lap dog (sesame) to go lay in corner and be seen and not heard as all good federation leaders do when a member is being detrimental to the overall good of a federation. how did your war with wendy turn out i thought it was suposed to be a one man left standing brawl ? who won that anyway?
this brings me to rep, how cute he offers to ride into town on his white steed to save the townfolk from the vigilante it reminds me of a epic western movie where the hero rides into town and saves the day, howevor in real life the hero is gunned down by the gunslinger and left to rott and decay in the road. lets disect his comments and offer some interpration of his galant post.
rep = As for your enviro-terror threats, whatever. Nuke away. I'm an econ player this time around so I can't hurt you
( first off i don't believe i threatened anyone i advised him on how not to get his ass handed to him by a so called inferior to him n00b sinse hes a self proclaimed pro player that comment of yours really means i want martyrdom i know youll destroy me and i could not do shit to stop you but it will gain me simfame!)
in reality you have nothing i want nor will a three minute massacre of a player of your caliper help my reputation or grant me fame
rep = Or convince the world to boycott selling a punk terrorist any nukes to terrorize with ( boo hoo hoo run and cry to others, the very same thing the veterans i have a problem with acuse newer players of doing all the time lol thats what i mean hypocrits, bullying hypocrites lol you all acuse others of doing the very things you do, ironic huh.and for your information i would build my own nukes or buy them from some posting on this very thread that would be tempted to join me and divide this worlds spoils your loyalty to each other is not as good as you may think as the past has proven time and time again look to your left and then to your right, one of those players will betray you)
rep = Or, since it's just a game, I take my 4 bucks a month to another world or even another game. So I can't say I'm afraid. ( if your ready to pick up and run without anything happening to you, well thats the definition of afraid * pats rep on head says " thats ok you go cower in corner put on some big boy pants and play with your legos no one has interest in you niether you or your empire is important )
you dont understand rep we play at my time on my schedule when and where i wish you dont control anything around here next time try to formulate a more convincing post of your bravadery, you also may not of noticed but you inadvertably gave us your opinion of you, i and sesames gaming ability in this comment.
rep = There Open Sesame, maybe that'll put the heat on me instead of you! I've got less than a month invested this time around so I've got a lot less to lose. ( you aknowledge youd both lose it all if indeed i do decide to school you on the fine art of warfare, you think id give you one of my best ideas lol not hardly ive got 6 ways to destroy countries that don't involve military intervention 4 more devestating than one mentioned earlier * rolls eyes the reality of the matter is you play if i allow you to play not if you choose .)
rep = Good clean war was, and can still be, a lot of fun ( the british acused americans of not fighting clean war because we would hide behind trees not march in lines a step at time into musket fire, the vietnamese used booby traps, the us forces fought iraq using mind rays and heat rays, good clean war. theres no such thing only losers of wars complain other fought unfairly toughen up or third grades gonna eat you up lol.
work on your economy so you have some assets worth actually taking.
no one shall mention my name for a reason, and thats the way were gonna keep it. soon it will become very aparent who i am as the bloodstained boots of my army once again sets down upon the virgin soil of your precious world and casts it into the most brutal unforgiving era it has ever known.
sesame you only ran crying to two members of your federation ? i only see scarlet and acordian do james or miller have no interest in this matter? federation loyalty is not to be counted on anymore everyoes just out for theirselves tsk tsk.you can come back out and play now just treat people with respect and dignity you never know when you might be barking at the wrong dog.
To the gamemasters the first month players 4.00 is just as important as yours thats how they get thier income, dont insult their new customers or bully them just because you need an ego boost to feel special, thats who you all are really hurting when you treat the newer players like dirt. your no better than they are and from this thread its certain your no braver. you all wanna dish it out but minute it comes back at you you start whining like lil girls.

If you've been collecting intel for four months, you should know that I'm a total BAMF.
Query: Why would I tell Mr. Sesame to be quiet?
Anyway, I don't understand what's going on here.
Edit: Why can't anyone be afraid of me! Is there like a specific requirement of countries that you need to conquer? While I'm on this subject, why do I get a totally lame description on the SC wikia?
Really? It makes me sound like "oh yeah, he plays the game okay" and "oh yeah, he has some weapons". Seriously? Like I'm an afterthought. Christ.
| Friday, June 17, 2011 - 06:31 pm |
Ah Scarlets seeks an audience with me.Never let it be said that im not a available person for inteligent calm rational discusions.
my intell knows how your war ended, i just thought from my personality profiling that you would have a need to let al know the results. therefore i gave you that oppertunity without you having to beat your own chest and proclaim to the world what a mighty army you have, you see scarlet i know what you crave, what you need, what you desire even more so than you yourself do. and you verify that in your very next post you prove my profiling was corect. you demand recognition and even complain the wiki slights you,
Scarlet: Why can't anyone be afraid of me!why do I get a totally lame description on the SC wikia? It makes me sound like "oh yeah, he plays the game okay" and "oh yeah, he has some weapons". Seriously? Like I'm an afterthought Christ
is that what you want? people to fear you? to become a living legend to walk amoungst the precense of the legendary warriors who are as shadows able to be seen but not hurt?
players look to your left look to your right, one of those people will betray you. those words are so few yet so true.
now lets grant you the answers to your other queeries
1.Why would I tell Mr. Sesame to be quiet?
Mr. Sesame is no longer a topic of importance ive decided our discusion regarding him is old news, actually its not even news anymore its more like yesterdays funnies.
2.Anyway, I don't understand what's going on here?
Whats going on here is the restructuring of power it will be a slow tedious journey only traveled by those willing to stop at no means, show no pity and have no conscience to achieve what must be done.Some wlll remain of importance and some wont, only when the fires of revolution come will some decide to join in inmortality while others will be consumed by the flames of wrath and fury.and forgotten forevor.
3. Is there like a specific requirement of countries that you need to conquer?
The list is niether etched in stone or unchangeable yes there are some certain requirements that im judging you all on if you read with a calm open mind you can see those actions/requirements that all will now answer for.
4.While I'm on this subject, why do I get a totally lame description on the SC wikia?
*see paragraph one.
This has to be a give and take you want answers from me then i expect the same courtesy bestowed upon me. I believe i asked you two questions about your war with Wendy but recieved no answers?
Is there a little discontent in simland? do you wish to prove yourself worthy to me? to attract my praises and favor? if not you can quit jumping up and down waving your arms in air and saying 'look at me, talk about me! if so sit tight and wait for your calling to fame, fortune and immortallity perhaps the third point of the pentragram has now been filled just as the second one was the day before.Ah how iv'e missed you, you once stood beside me and basked in the glory of sim sun enjoying all the praise and perks that came with it, alas brave scarlet that time will come again but its not here just yet. you shall have all you once enjoyed and more the richess of our kingdoms lie in your future once again.
"Their sword will become our plow, and from the tears of war the daily bread of future generations will grow."

I suppose every game needs an incoherent psychotic for comedy relief. Just a side note, there are meds that can help with that.
No white horse riding in to save the townfolk. Just coming out on the side of someone I've never communicated with against an, IMO, unwarranted personal attack. He was right in his post, you ARE incoherent. You claim it was "an immatation", but your "real" posts since the "immatation" are exactly the same.
Not interested in simfame. Martyrdom holds no appeal to me. Simply stating that since I play for the ENJOYMENT, and don't have some strange fetish about controlling an imaginary world, I can get that enjoyment from (a)another world or (b)if necessary another game. "Mommy, the bad man hurt my feelings." NOT. My big boy pants were put on probably before you were born, son.
I made no comment on anyone's war capability. I could care less about anyone's war capability. Don't attempt to be able to figure out any ulterior meanings behind what I say, you don't have the capacity.
No, I don't play if "you" decide whether I do. Reality check: Are you the owner of W3C? Didn't think so. School me on the fine art of warfare? Read the new rules. As an econ player, the only "schooling" you can give me is through the enviro-terror or attempted econ-terror methods; my main is secure.
The state of your mind is succinctly summed up in the "mind rays and heat rays" used by the U.S. forces in Iraq. Oooookkkaaayy. Simwars at one time were good, clean fun. I stand by that. RL is not SC. Make a serious effort to differentiate the two.
Doesn't matter if I have assets "worth" taking or not. You can't have them anyway. What matters is how I play, you're irrelevant.
I object to your unreasoning hatred of anyone with a modicum of success in SC. It was the same way the last time, chief. Anyone with more than you MUST be cheating or in a conspiracy to keep you from getting what is rightfully yours.
The vast majority of veterans in SC have gone out of their way to be helpful to new players, and I've never seen the collusion you repeat ad nauseum.
| Friday, June 17, 2011 - 09:42 pm |
lol rep rep, its just a game remember, whats a smatter do you poke your wittle nose in and get it bent?
try to stay factual and informed don't rant and rave uncontrolably.insulting people, thats very unatractive on a man. here ill educate you so next time you comment youll sound more like a rational adult
US Air Force Admits To Using Subliminal microwave mind control messages In Iraq War.
Concerns about microwaves and mind control date to the 1960s, when the U.S. government discovered that its embassy in Moscow was being bombarded by low-level electromagnetic radiation. In 1965, according to declassified Defense Department documents, the Pentagon, at the behest of the White House, launched Project Pandora, top-secret research to explore the behavioral and biological effects of low-level microwaves. For approximately four years, the Pentagon conducted secret research: zapping monkeys; exposing unwitting sailors to microwave radiation; and conducting a host of other unusual experiments (a sub-project of Project Pandora was titled Project Bizarre). The results were mixed, and the program was plagued by disagreements and scientific squabbles. The "Moscow signal," as it was called, was eventually attributed to eavesdropping, not mind control, and Pandora ended in 1970. And with it, the military's research into so-called non-thermal microwave effects seemed to die out, at least in the unclassified realm.
But there are hints of ongoing research: An academic paper written for the Air Force in the mid-1990s mentions the idea of a weapon that would use sound waves to send words into a person's head. "The signal can be a 'message from God' that can warn the enemy of impending doom, or encourage the enemy to surrender," the author concluded.
In 2002, the Air Force Research Laboratory patented precisely such a technology: using microwaves to send words into someone's head. That work is frequently cited on mind-control Web sites. Rich Garcia, a spokesman for the research laboratory's directed energy directorate, declined to discuss that patent or current or related research in the field, citing the lab's policy not to comment on its microwave work.just to say it is true
( did you honestly think defeating the 4th largest army in the world while suffering no casualties itself during invasion would be posible if we hadnt of fought so called dirty)
Link to US Heat Ray Used In Iraqi War
( this ones a video to make it more entertaining for those of you who unlike rep can read. note you insulted me first rep. hense ill hurl a few back
this is the Pentagon's new Heat-Ray Projector, thats mounted on a Humvee ... Pentagon U.S Heat-Ray Projector. azuresapphire15 50
I object to your unreasoning hatred of anyone with a modicum of success in SC. It was the same way the last time, chief. Anyone with more than you MUST be cheating or in a conspiracy to keep you from getting what is rightfully yours.
lol your so funny none of this is about who has what. thats never been mentioned nor will. i could care less what others have lol, its about how you treat others but yet you try to pin this on me so im the villan, im the hero here. the ones that act superior and belittle new players are the villans,treat others better and i would of never been here in the first place tsk tsk tsk it seems as thou someones allready been pushed over the deep end. or should i say volunteered to hurl himself over the deep end.
Alah Akbad eh rep
martyrdom will not be achieved as easily as you hope.
once again no one wants what you have, try to read the statements and use facts if you dont know the facts on a particular subject then dont personely attack someone educate yourself,as i just so graciously have educated you on your lack of current war weaponry used by the united states. i havnt attacked anyone who hasnt asked to be attacked. unlike you, you started a discusion volunteerig to help and you got popped in nose, end of subject go put on your big boy pants wipe blood off your nose and go about your business i have allready dismised you from class.
rep = The vast majority of veterans in SC have gone out of their way to be helpful to new players, and I've never seen the collusion you repeat ad nauseum
thats very true, im not here for the vast majority i mentioned 12 once again you try to deflect the facts from the real story here, lies are not reality try to diferitiate between the two, if you dont want the heat dont go running into kitchin yelling "ILL SAVE THE DAY" and then get upset when you fall futily on your big non factual ass.
shouldnt you be busy focusing on your supply problems now and not focusing on somthing thats non of your concern to begin with? go play have fun ! yay for you.
perhaps your time would be better spent hmm lets see, starting a post asking what might help the newer players feel more welcome, or maybee start a big brother club where older players adopt a newer pklayer or two to help them , much like wendy, millers helpfull, scarlet has helped new comers it only takes one moment of your day to save a new player days of frustration.wendy has done this many times in the past she's got posts saying shel help any newer player with anything at anytime. if you see a veteren being mean or rude to a n00b point it out,dont encourage it or jump on in a gang like ive seen in some posts, doing the right thing is never easy but its always right and respected.
| Friday, June 17, 2011 - 10:13 pm |
Westy, if you think I was referring to you, then communicate using the name you used when we 'chatted'.
Perhaps it is you who should read statements more carefully, don't you think?
If you can do that then I can and will respond to your diatribe.
| Saturday, June 18, 2011 - 03:06 am |
The headline reads U.S. admits to using... mind control weapons in Iraq war, but the only verification you use is an admission by the Air Force that they patented a process in 2002 dealing with this subject.
In the spirit of graciousness, I will admit to the "heat ray" humvee as being something I was unaware of.
Although I think that the families of the 4000 casualties and tens of thousand wounded may take issue with your assessment of "no casualties".
You end your latest post by saying Wendy, Miller, Scarlet, and others are, and have been, very generous to new players. This is also what I was saying, and it contradicts the tone and essence of your first posts.
You're right about one thing, it's useless to go on with this. The parameters change too often, your coherence degenerates as your posts progress until it's impossible to discern your meaning. I only jumped in in the first place because you took some hard slaps at people who have helped me a lot in the past, and who I consider worthy of a lot more respect than you seemed willing to give, and my Kraut temper got the best of me.
So I'll put my ego in the closet and let you have at your rants. Good luck.
| Saturday, June 18, 2011 - 04:41 am |
What's the use of actually being a BAMF if just anybody can attempt to pose as one and disrespect BAMFhood in general by corrupting the concept? It's insulting and offensive.
In either case, I thought it was common knowledge that I like to have my ego stroked. I'm pretty transparent. Of course I demand recognition, haha. You know, I can't stroke my own ego all day else I would cease to have an ego worth stroking; can't you help me out? As far my desire to be a living legend, no point being a legend if you're dead. What does a dead man care what others think of him? I walk in flesh and blood and bone, working in the corporeal realm. What are shadows except obstructed light?
Besides, the right thing here is to tell you to get lost and don't go disrespecting the accurate, witty statements of my federation members.
| Saturday, June 18, 2011 - 03:46 pm |
lolz scarlet yes yes thats good for the press a nice quote for the peons to read while eating their bread and water for breakfast. nicely done indeed.
And i do agree with you you do seem rather slighted in the wiki.someone with your list of acomplishments and the ability to stay calm and colected while adversity surrounds you probably does deserve better.
The Apoclolyptic legal department is currently working on what shall become known as "The Scarlet Doctrine" * plays royal like sounding trumpet blasts heres the initial outline of the draft to look over as a pre release.
The above said document will carve out a sphere of influence in wich unnecesary or unjust agresion by a foriegn power in the afairs of northern lacerta or eastern Centura Donna will not be tolerated any agresive actions taken within the prescribed area of influence shall be viewed as an imediate agresion taken againts the good peaceloving people of northern lacerta and Eastern Centura donna.and will justify intervention by said scarlet to deal with the matter as he sees fit.
much like the monroe doctrine protected the new fledgling countries of central and south america the "Scarlet Doctrine" will offer a umbrella of protection for the new peacefull republics of northern lacerta and Eastern Centura Donna.
Ill answer rep tommorow and he might be surprised i have somehat of a compliment for him.
On the weekends my time is slightly less available as its used to enjoy life and build the apocolypic coalition 2 of the 5 horses have been colected now
The first horse is White
The second horse is Red
now that i have the attention of a rational calm inteligent person we have somthin that needs adressing now.
Lets put aside the future for just a moment to talk about the present and the problem of losing about 50 players a week from each world. im sure you all have noticed the areas becoming green as new players by the hundreds are being eliminated from the game the last week or two, this is a serious crises we all are facing and if not curbed will make this a ghost game soon.
We must stop thinking of rule changes as simplistic. everything in this game is conected and changing 10 rules a month effects at least 30 things thus causing severe consequences, because you dont like gas prices you cant just eliminate gas tank from a car,its one part conected to hundreds just as everything in this game is it will cease to work effectivly.
That is what were doing for example this economic crises player failures all started with a post saying we should add more micromanadgement by making upsilion a supply and demand economy no artifitial supplies involved, wich would of been good if it was like that from the start but it wasnt. did no one think of the consequences of this act? everyone knows how hard it is to start a succesfull country for a new player, by doing this it has caused a severe economic meltdown on upsilion costing each player a chunk of his income, while this is sutainable by most long time players that have a reserve of cash. it is not by the borderline succesfull players or any newer players teetering on survival.
this one change will end up costing the game over course of a month aproximently 50 per week per world 800 plyers or so just over the first month. it will also mean at least 100 more players will fail and go bankrupt while trying to start empire every month.
so we all want more players but by not discusing what the new rule change ripple effect would do we have destroyed our main goal. you cant read rule proposal and vote in ten seconds inteligently theres a cause and effect to everything every action begits a reaction and withot thinking what reaction may be the votes are cast.
Case in point number 2 proposal for a profesional army, on that thread everyones saying YAY YAY lets do it. lets examine what that will really do.
1. more new players will spend more money unwisely on a profesional army wich mean less investment in economy and in turn cause many more to fail than normal and leave the game. so end result = less players more of players that would of made the grade and stayed fail financialy and are phased out of the game forevor. we all know thats where new players ussualy err by spending to much on military and not investing in the economy. this would be like putting a gun in your kids toybox we need to think abut the people who arnt sitting on trillions or eventualy theres gonna be 5 of us players per world .... boringggggggggg. the vast majority of the players dont have 10 hours a day to micromanadge supplies wich suddenly have disapeired from the marketplace overnight, they have lifes and jobs and have trouble understanding this game anyway.
ill use this country as an example ( The Commonwealth of Mindanoa ) a month ago it was a thriving new republic buying population from the gamemasters happily playing and chating in the forum and its owner was making steadily progress just like hundreds of others that are now going bankrupt and leaving the game. now its almost defunct 1/3rd of its companies are producing at 0 percent due to the supply rule change another 1/3rd are running under 50 % i do not know what its profits were before this rule change but i know its at least 66 % less than it was. and were probably going to lose that player i talk to new players all time and if you do too you know this has caused many to quit or go bankrupt upwards of 70 % thats a shocking number. the profesional army proposal is going to add to that total.
So what to do now? well maybee instead of undoing all restrictions of supply and demand at once we could of phased them in a catagory a week to give those players time to adjust but we didnt and well here we are. losing tons of players and the future of game expanding for months in the future.
we are changing so many rules we are making it nearly imposible for new players to play. theres a reason there is no such thing as a pure democracy in the world they choose representatives to vote on those things but here anyone thats been playing one week can sugest a rule and get it passed without anyone even discusing or thinking of the consequences.
if we are going to have that power we need to be more thourough and responsible in implementing it.
instead of a posting, then a ten second thought and a vote there should be a discusion thread on each change for at least a month so people can actualy discuss the effects of the rule on the rest of the game. just my opinion. we dont think of what the rule will do to everyone just what it might do for us. i myself would rather have more players than 40 per world and right now the games losing them like flies because of these willy nilly rule changes we keep creating and then flip flopping on when we discover they arnt really what game needs or wants.
the gamemasters have entrusted us with power the least we can do is excercise it inteligently to ensure the growth of the game.
someones got to be the voice of the little people around here or before long there will be no little people left, when proposing or voting on a rule dont think what its going to do for you, thats self centered and selfish. think what will it do for everyone.
oh and rep i was wrong about invasion casualty rates heres official iraq invasion casulaties for coalition forces including rebel groups fighting on our side aprox 30 % caused by freindly fire, i have no problem in saying "i was wrong"
Casualties and losses invasion of iraq ( 21 days )to view casualties of ocupation of Iraq see ocupation of Iraq casualties

and solaris we have never chatted i do not chat, if someone is claiming to be me chatting well then your chatting to an imposter, if you were not refering to me then i mistinterprated your post and apologize. but as i said we have not chatted 2 people can confirm who i really am somehow i dont think they will. but as far as you and me chatting it has not happened. if someone is trying to social engeneer or hack you (wich i consider very lame to do to someone on a game) i would suggest as i do to everyone to use a differant birthday then your own when regestering for anything on the internet, do not use childrens or pets name as your passwords those and 123456 and qwerty are the most common passwords followed closely by ilovename dont use a noun, verbs are decent passwords no one makes a verb pass cracking list a foriegn language word is good too if its not a noun the strongest password will contain a verb wiih a capital letter inside the interior of the verb and a blank space within the inner body of before mentioned verb plus 1 or 2 symbols example =( @#reTri eved6 ) a pass like that is nearly imposible to crack even with a brute force pass cracking tool.

I owe you an apology. You are obviously well informed, and capable of putting on a "game persona" better than almost anyone I've seen here.
Your points regarding the game are quite valid. And your invasion totals for Iraq are accurate (or at least as accurate as one can get).
Also you are correct with regard to passwords. The vast majority of people mistakenly use the KISS system when developing passwords, and unscrupulous folks can and will take advantage.
So I fell for your "game persona" hook, line, and sinker. I will hang a "sucker" tag around my neck for a week and go meekly into the sunset.

thank you rep i do completely immerse myself into this game i enjoy it very much, unfortunatly somtimes this is the only way to get peoples attention at least some of the peoples attention i needed to get, the people who decide or influence most of the rules and player behaivior all world hve leaders and i needed the attention of the influential people and needed it now.
Actualy i wish youd come into the town hall and stay, youve done more research than anyone else on this current crisses as evident by your other threads of companies needed to fix this mess. i can tell you care about keeping the game going as much as i do.
Earlier i estimated 800 people quiting a month, well unfortunatly i apear to be wrong this is a paiste of the scrolling game info on home page portal and the days not over yet
Population: 315,844,687,835 +134.21M Countries with President: 11,832 -86
weve lost 86 countries with presidents allready today we may very well lose 3,000 players this month or almost the equivelant of a whole world. or 4 entire fearless blue worlds in one month this isnt sustainable.
why is it always us or them old players vs new it doesnt have to be that way. a rule change thats good for one persons game may be and often is disastorous to other players.
we do this for four more months this game will be gone completely.
put yourself in their position youve used your beginers bonus money up and your turning a small profit just as we all did when we first started and then blam in one day your companies no longer make a profit but indstead you are now losing money every month, youve exhausted all your bonus money and cant even build any companies to furnish the needed supplies to get cash, worst of all if you still manadge to have any cash you cant get orders filled from the shortages of products needed. so you slowly watch your month or two of hard work and dedication slide into bankruptcy. furthermore you cant purchase any weapons to expand because all offensive and defensive weapons but 6 mostly useless ones are in short supply and wont be delivered for 4 years or more if even then.we tell them build infrastructure but ordering a hospital takes 11 years they do not stand a chance theyl go broke before the production goes up from improving thier indexes.
this recovery is going to take months of real time as i said everythings not as simple as it appears, some of the shortfalls in products are not a direct result of not having those companies built that produce those products for example electricity it shows as a major shortfall but many electric plants arnt producing because of the shortage of chemicals they cant purchase the chemicals so therefore electricity is not produced, a lot of the shortage of weapons is actualy caused by the lack of electrionic components and computers, so this is a huge mess not easily solved theres many more products like that too. after its initialy solved there will then be a huge surpllus due to the plants that cant get supplies now gearing thier production back up producing products again and once again putting the newer players that adapted to the first crises in a whole new situation one of not being able to sell the products they produce, so buckle up for the long run guys this could go on for over 6 months of time, real bad economic and massive player loss .
I notice a lot of you wanted more player to player wars, why dont we have many? ill offer my opinion and perhaps a reasonable solution to apease the war players as well as the ones that do not enjoy battling other players in wars.
Why dont players want war? perhaps because after investing hundreds of dollars and painstakingly building an empire for a year or so they can lose it all but what they started with. thats kinda brutal, when i was talking of doing that in my opening comments everyone was aghast oh how could he be so mean, but thats exactly what happens 9 out of ten times i read so many past threads about war where a player is defeated left with just his main then he quits the game. the war players are in most casses eliminating the very players they want to keep in the game to play with lol then we complain theres no one to fight.
how to balance it is not easily solved you have the economy players on one side and the war players on the other one wants to fight and take one wants to build
so why not make it hurt little to declare war on another player if they really want to fight a player war put your money where your hatred is. if both parties dont agree to a war then the aggresor nation should face a 2 month real time economic boycot by the world much like happens in real life to agressor nations through the united nations embargos no one including his own comon market can trade with said agressor consider it a un blockade . this would make more people think twice about launching an unfair unjustified war unless they feel it absolutly neccesary ( i know theres mostly war players on this thread but think of economy players too that dont want you attacking them everyone has to put thierselves in the other guys shoes or were gonna self implode)
another option might be to limit the posible loses such as maximum 2 slave countries in any peace proposal once two slaves are lost the war is over and can not be redeclared for a period of 15 years or one month of real time, this would give the players time to cool down and start talking posibly and not result in players that you really want to keep in the game to war with not leaving.
i cant tell you guys how many times ive read things like "learn how to spell and i might listen to you, when a little kid has typed a question or comment into the forum look through the threads you will see it a lot. even members of the security councils say these things the so called ambasadors of the game this forums behaivior is just not right a lot of the free players are kids and teenagers this game appeals to them, how would you like it if someone treated your kid like that or your brother who lives in france because hes not fluid in english gets treated like crap. a lot of these players are not fluid in english just as you may not be fluid in arabic. ill be blunt here, what causes most of the wars and problems in this game ? this very forum does almost every war starts in here.
its fun to mix it up in forum i like too also but that should be in a fight room thread start fight thread dont do it to lil 12 year old kids that wander in and ask a legitimate question or wish their voice to be heard only to get run out of the forum forevor because they cant spell or phrase their questions properly, theres like what 13,000 people that play this game but only 40 or so that post in forum. hello, theres a reason.im not talking about people in this thread per say but you know it happens in this forum a lot you guys arnt blind, but no one ever steps up to defend them its older players responsibility to set tone of conduct for the game and forum if we fail to do that then this game cannot/ will not grow or suceed and then we will be sitting here all by ourselves wondering what the hell happened to this game.
the answer is we happened everyones gotta step it up little bit or we as a gamming comunity are doomed
lil constructed feedback would be apreciated and yes you may insult me once or twice in the feedback lol im only sensative about my tiny lil sexy feetz :p

Bingo and bravo! I agree with all your ideas regarding the game.
And I especially agree with your thoughts about the young people. They see an advertisement about "run your own country" for free, and they get interested, come on here, ask a question, get blasted for their spelling, etc., say "screw this, it's too hard and no one wants to help" and out they go never to return.
And I've mentioned in other posts; this is a world wide game. Not everyone here has English as their primary language, so I try to show a lot of patience to new people.
Heck, if they switched it all to Nederlander Deutsch language I'd be in trouble, verstehen sie?
We've got for the most part a solid core of decent people who have no trouble giving some of their energy to helping new guys/girls develop. We need to expand that.
Not going to comment on your feet! :D
My girlfriend insists my foot fetish be limited to HER sexy little feet!

Careful of all this sexy talk, remember the forum is full of "lil 12 year old kids" :p
