Umbrella Aid Slot usage
Facts and Patterns
The following is a breakdown of the aid slot usage of the Umbrella and the Umbrella Applicant alliance affiliations between 3/24 9:07:14 and 3/15 12:01:33.
By cataloging and documenting his information i hope to glean insights on the priorities of this alliance who i have little contact with.
Furthermore i hope to make the incredibly efficient and complex system of aid and growth more understandable for the average citizen of planet BoB
I will first present the facts, cold hard numbers then give my own commentary and perceptions.
Any factual inaccuracies are unintentional and i will do my best to remove my own biases from my analysis
Total Nations 100 up 10 from declaration
14 nations in Anarchy
8 in Peace mode
Total NS 7,862,331
Average NS 78,623
Total Tech 826,743
8 Offensive Wars
16 Defensive wars
Umbrella aid slots documented: 417
Total Cash sent out to Foreign Alliances- 634,500,000
Total internal cash Sent within Umbrella - 129,000,000
Total Cash sent by Umbrella Nations- $763,500,000
Aid to Warring Doomhouse alliances
579,000,000, All but 12 mil going to GOONS
This means that 110 of the aid slots sent to GOONS are now cash only (about 40%), the percentage was much higher in the first several months of the ongoing conflict but i do not have the number accurate to the point i would publish them. But one thing is for sure, GOONS, with almost 150 new members and a total NS staying around 1.8 mil, has bottomed out, and that extra 500 mil and the 600,000 extra soldiers could have gone a long way.

These deals in addition to 7 internal Umbrella deals round out the total slots.
If these numbers and facts don't make sense to you, i would reassure you by saying i don't understand them either. The aid airlift we saw for the first month of the war, made with ruthless and surgical precision to keep the lower tiers of GOONS fighting the beaten down nuclear nations of the NPO coalition seems to be fraying. Nations are no longer pushing 1 billion of war aid to their brothers in arms but have begun to shift their priorities. An upsurge in domestic aid to rebuild Umbrella nations who have taken a serious beating to the tune of around 130 million dollars, no chump change and 40 odd slots now aimed at the home front, this combined with the motley crew of alliances providing Umbrella nations through tech deals also shows a clear lack of coordination on the govt. level and is simply nations deciding that their slots would be put to better use for their own tech acquisition than the aiding of GOONS nation who are fighting highly developed, NPO nations content with winning successive GA's against inexperienced and in some cases incompetent young nations, flush with MK and Umbrella cash. You can watch former mid tier, experienced nations in 3 defensive wars, out of anarchy and slowly gaining NS.
It is my belief that Umbrella has begun to go through the process of cutting GOONS off as it were. We know that they have the war chests and the income to aid GOONS out of all slots for eternity, but while they do this, tech are still under sporadic attack from NPO allies energizing in Kamikaze war mode and quading a mid tier umbrella nation, he is countered and a minor 4-5 nation skirmish often resulting in mutual ZIs. NPO due to its high amount of lower tier nuclear nations and content to stay there hold umbrella nations down and evaporate the tech, the most difficult to replace part of the war machine. The must now rebuild not only the demolished nations Infra, but must sacrifice the precious slots, for rebuilding there own nations. As the war drags on Umbrella has begun to face the reality of a drawn out war. Their growth stunted and their power waning with each passing day, aiding another comrade who fell victim to the tactic they hoped to use, a sneak, powerful attack, then a lower tier swarm. The whole time the upper tiers of NPO remain content in PM.
As an aside I feel the need to point out another interesting stat noticed in my look at Umbrella is its strange NS chart, they took a gradual loss daily for over a month then began to gain in score and NS in remarkable spurts. A glance at their alliance seniority gives us the answer in seeing around 750,000 NS and 68,000 tech bulked on to distort their true losses or damage take over the last month of the war, combined that with the addition of several smaller nations dragging down their average NS.
I look forward to the coming weeks to see if any of my theories and speculations will be confirmed, but alas, that is for a different thread. Thoughts?
