CN Excitement DOWN Alliance Wars DOWN

Winner12345

1,448 views

CN has been shrinking, not rapidly, but enough to say it`s shrinking. To me there are a few reasons.

1.Game Mechanics get Very Repetitive and eventually pointless

2. No new features recently that changes something largely.

3. No UN which just about everyone wants

But one i don`t think most people relize another important part. No large wars. When the game was growing and thriving, People and there alliances where agreesively fighting other alliances. But now a alliances are taking a real world approach and attempting to stop wars through Diplomatic ties.

But it has made the game take a huge hit. People just aren`t as interested when alliances are so wrapped up in alliance politics, they can`t get approval to attack this guy who just nuked him a bunch of times.

Ao to me a way to save the game is to let alliances duke it out, let the gloves come off. Peoplelike strategy games, not repetitiveness.

Smart RL hegemonies do. There's more to staying on top than having a big stick. That doesn't mean they'll let it stop them from doing what they want to do, of course.

Yeh, its a control system for the strong to 'legitimise' their actions and a small carrot for everyone else.

This game is not a nation simulator.

It is a political simulator, and until you realize that you are going to find the mechanics boring, so join a damn alliance, and shut up.

Oh, and the UN

This entire game is player driven; if you want a UN, set one up yourself.

I'd aim to have at least five of the sanctioned on side before announcing.

Until you manage to set your UN up, how about you do what I suggested earlier and shut up?

Don't let the haters get you discouraged Winner6789, everyone I've talked to on IRC in the past three months has wanted a UN, and they want you as its secretary general.

That's on only one IRC I guess?

I think a United Nations formed in TE once. We rolled them.

Also, join an alliance with people who actually know how to play this game.

And then shut up.

"Peoplelike strategy games, not repetitiveness."

So you're saying that since people like strategy games, we should take all the strategy out of this game and just hit each other with bricks. Awesome.

What do you propose that this hypothetical UN do?

i. We already have a forum for inter-alliance communication (i.e. exhibitions of varying degrees of competence).

ii. The treaty system largely prevents small-scale wars from happening (of course, that point begs to open the complex can of worms that is the alliance legitimacy debate). You won't find many people, save for those in neutral AAs, that want to reduce the number of global conflicts.

What are we left with? Humanitarian aid programs? That already happens (to some extent) between allies. Tech and military coordination? They've only tried that on various color spheres, never mind on a global level.

Then again, maybe you can deliver us all from the chaos. I suggest a contest with the NPO.

The real life UN couldn't be copied into CN. The very first line of Article 1(1) is "to maintain international peace...."

Not happening in a game were people want war.

Not to say CNs history does not have large scale treaty organisations. The think of the children treaty for example. You might count GPA's declaration of Neutrality (I said MIGHT). There are also probably areas were if people didn't feel it to be a waste of time such treaties could be drawn up. There are fairly common standards for treatment of POW, treatment of tech trades and treatment of rogues. There are also standards for use of embassies and ambassadors. However no one would sign such a treaty because they would find it restrictive to their freedom of action or claim it makes no difference, or both.
