Peace Mode Warriors: IRON


Penkala

182/443 IRON nations are cowering in peace mode (no BAWWW IT'S A TACTIC; they've been HIDING THERE, not cycling in and out. There's a difference between utilizing peace mode to re-arm and come out fighting and using peace mode to cower after you attack an uninvolved bloc.)

3,322,512 of IRON's 5,000,000 NS is cowering in peace mode, leaving 1.68 million NS in war mode.

Let's raise some hell and take some names.

el oh el.

When you declare war on an uninvolved bloc and talk about acknowledging defeat but still wanting to do a lot of damage on your way down, it's expected that you'll stay in war mode and try to unleash more damage than you take. Not cower in peace mode and try to protect yourself.

It'd be like if I walked up to you, threw a punch from behind, and exchanged blows with you for 15 seconds, then ran and hid in the fetal position until you finished smashing my head in. If my stated goal was to hurt you bad, I'd keep punching on the way down...

Not surprising, and many of those nations will probably stay there until the war is over. It will have an impact on the reps demanded, of course, but watching the arguing over that is just about all the 'fun' that's left in this war. (Think back to the NPO-MK bickering toward the end of the Karma War.)

There's no point in those nations coming out of PM

of their top 10 3 don't have a war chest

even if they came out together their top 50 would be mobbed 3:1 by the opposition within a few hours

there is simply no point in wasting those nations on a death ride, for history buffs the parallel is the high seas fleet in 1918

far better to save those nations and use them as banks after the war

so because u feel it is one way, all others who disagree are bawwing? there are reasons for them being in peace mode cause they know they wont win - so yes, that is a tactic.

'peace mode is a tactic' is a silly statement, unless that peace mode is used to rebuild and attack again. If not, peace mode = pixel saving.

You should make up your mind:

Either go in peace mode and accept peace,

or,

Don't want peace and go in war mode.

Editted to add:

I admire people like Matt Miller, for not minding the beating he t(ook/akes) in the Karma war and now again, while his whole alliance hides in peace mode.

'peace mode is a legitimate tactic' makes me laugh, it reminds me of counter strike 'camping is a legitimate tactic'.

It is a legit tactic, one I seem to recall GATO and other alliances using it against Pacifica.

wow, Penkala. i seriously am loving the hypocrisy of all this. when ya'll do it, it is a tactic, when others do it it is cowardice. get over yourselves. with the fact that IRON is actually fighting a war of survival here, keeping most of their NS in PM is a great tactical move. it ensures that whatever reps they finally agree to can be paid while they retain some of their NS, instead of losing it all. since it is obvious that once their nations leave peacemode, they would be locked in combat for a long period, why throw away those nations, NS, tech, cash? that would be stupid.

Blaming your own incompetence on IRON is laughable at best. If you didn't want us in peace mode then you should have co-ordinated your wars better, the vast majority of our nations have exited and fought multiple wars during this campaign, the fact they are in peace mode now is due to your own ineptitude. Get over it or get better at war, simple as that. We will order our nations out of PM as we see fit and we don't really care how you perceive our tactics, we didn't much like Vox's tactics pre Karma either, it's war tough luck.

I'm sure you've been keeping perfect tabs on us to know that. 182 in peace without fighting, eh?

I'm in peace, I've fought a few rounds. I can name many others. Certainly not your 182 not fighting ever. Research before you call coward or you might end up looking stupid.

They're entering into a long term war, this is not unheard of. I love the attempt to slander them but it is a tactic. You can claim they're aggressor and etc but the truth is they're in a long term war. It makes no sense to keep everyone in war mode to beat up when they can have them in peace mode and put the advantage on their side once they unleash their waves. Eventually they'll end up coming out but until then this makes the most sense long term wise since this war doesn't look likely to end for them anytime soon.

People didn't berate FAN for being in peace mode now did they?

actually people did berate FAN. some didn't and believed it was a valid tactic though. i wish more people would post what they think of IRON since it would be amusing to see who has switched their mind over this tactic since FAN used it.

Sort of silly entry.

The only use this entry serves when it comes to mocking the enemy is that it points out that IRON is losing the war and I don't think anyone was having any doubt about wich side was winning by now.

That said it's equally silly to compare this war to the one FAN fought. There aren't alot of similarities.

How about the 114/426 Spartan nations who are in peace mode? It's not really that much of a different and they're on the winning side.

We're severely outnumbered, apart from CnG were facing at least another 10 alliances. Why on earth should we leave ourselves open for yous to attack at will rather than use a legitimate tactic to pick and choose targets ourselves whenever we want. Many of those in peace mode are taking a break from a month of fighting with many restocking up on nukes.

CnG or any other bloc/alliance would be doing the exact same thing if the situation were reversed so stop being so idiotic.

You failed staggers then cry that they are in peace mode? Classy.

Most of what now comprises the top of IRONS NS charts hasn't been out of PM at all for the war,

Those that have were fighting for the first or 2nd week of the war and have been in since

No real criticism here since for the last fortnight those nations have been effectively blockaded but IRON's big failure in this war was not supporting there allies more when they came in on their behalf, Had they thrown an all out effort onto one or two of their fronts they may have knocked a few of our side out of the war
