GOONS membership's real opinions regarding the war

I am a newbie and I have no idea what I am doing and I've made on NSO and one Olympus surrender.

This past week, Sirwilliam produced a check-in google doc which contained a space for members to voice their opinions regarding the war. The response was overwhelming. The majority of the alliance has already weighed in, and here are some of the choice quotes, which will be anonymous. If any GOONS reading this want to claim their quote, go for it.

A lot of it boiled down to this:

"It was a lot more fun before 2 nuclear capable nations declared on me. :) I went from 9.5K nation strength to 1.2K strength (and declining). But I've been getting aid and rebuilding will probably happen quickly, so it's all good."

even more of it boiled down to this:

"It was cool, but all my targets were good. And I got piled. But pixels are lulzy, so I don't care that much."

But sadly, there was a lot of dismay within the goons ranks:

"Its ok but not the opponents aren't doing much, so it ends up being somewhat uneventful once you declare and anarchy your offensive war opponents. Everything on our end is going very smoothly and I feel that we have a lot of support and coordination on this side."

It failed to live up to some expectations:

"I think we need some better opponents, these guys are dull and uninvolved with banter and ****, **** them"

"Two of my targets are going to delete. This war is boring and I need cash to pay my bills.

Also, nuke sard."

"Not enough competent enemies..."

"Need more targets"

"I cant declare on more then 3 targets? this is bull****"

"Having a blast, only damper is NPOs incredibly boring strategy of buying abloslutely nothing, and spying away money. I think they're betting on us having less money than them."

"NPO/NSO are worst war playmates ever."

"This war is quite literally the best thing about CN. Also, NPO are useless."

But overall, a good time was had by all:

""quite a bit" does not cover it.

Aid and nukes fall from the sky and I am loving this ****! Send down more NPO."

"Enjoying the war. Opponents at my level (high Aspie, low BYOB) are pretty disappointing. Haven't been in anarchy yet, accepted one round of aid ($15M, thanks) and have been feeding off targets otherwise.

Tried trolling NPO/Legion to get more defensive wars but that didn't work. I've given up on them. Enemies aren't surrendering/accepting terms so I'm willing to keep putting them in anarchy and eroding their nations.

Just DoW'd and attacked a nuke-capable target, so hopefully things will get more interesting."

"37 of my nukes have sailed directly into the enemy's collective anus, so I am a happy camper."

The overall opinion of the war has been overwhelming positive, proving once again the strength of the GOONS warrior spirit.

So to those who expected us to break and surrender: really? You really expected GOONS to surrender in the face of so much entertaining war? If your aim was to force us to surrender, you have made a grave miscalculation, because it is not war that kills us, it is lack of war. War feeds us, grows our community. If you'll glance over at our applicant AA, you'll see how your mistake was far graver than you could possibly imagine. When we have rebuilt, we will be far, far stronger than we we were at the onset of the war.

Response from RoK has actually been very similar. That's the easiest way to see what is a true warrior alliance: the reaction in the face of extreme losses during wartime.

I for one never expected GOONS to surrender, and I don't know of anyone else over here who really thought that. It's just funny that GOONS has to continually announce that they're not going to surrender or disband. It's something called overcompensation, and it's fun to watch.

At any rate, I've been having a blast as well. Can't wait to see that goose egg next to the word Infrastructure in my nation stats.

Wait, so all of NPO's defenders put their upper-middle in peace mode and only declared on GOONS because they didn't think we'd surrender? If that really was the case (I don't think it is and I'm fairly certain you're just being contrary) then that would make the majority of said defense a token gesture just to keep up appearances.

Or maybe... just maybe... it's a reverse FAN maneuver! You've piled onto us in peace mode and will refuse to come out of it until you get fair surrender terms, and claim persecution all the while!

I'm happy to say that I've done really well against my GOONs targets. Stalins_Barber and Jockland were pretty good, won most of my GAs (about 80%), but their nukes hurt.

For Dead2Me (who has full military wonders), i've managed to win 8/8 Offensive and 5/6 Defensive GAs, nukes don't hurt much, but since he has so much aircraft..

Either way pretty fun from my end.

Also, thanks for getting rid of our !@#$%* members. We'll enjoy attacking them on your PoW AA too :awesome:

I'm working on it, but you keep trying to dissuade me from attacking you.

You are in this war as a collective entity (DH), so I don’t think anyone was expecting you to surrender. Apart from that I have to say that the feelings concerning this war seem the same no matter the side. We all enjoy it, some opponents are good, some bad, some just turtles (surprising my MKer was a turtle). Let’s keep dancing :awesome:
