  1. The idea that Cuba is some sort of "tyrant" because he has the biggest nation is ridiculous. I don't believe he's even the most active or important leader in DBDC.
  2. Loosing wars means far less than it used to. One reason it that peace terms are far more lenient these days, in 99% ending in white or grey peace, instead of the crippling reps from the past. Another is that most nations have good warchests and a stockpile of indestructible wonders/improvements that means that they don't have to rebuild from scratch.
  3. You were able to launch way more nukes regardless having a stockpile against greater numbers. 15 nukes on them to their 6 on you. Which means that if they did indeed do more damage to you than you to them, they were able to make up 9 extra nukes worth of damage in other types of attacks.

    Judgements

    ODN is easily one of the best alliances in the game. It was a very hard pick between joining ODN or TOP after MK.
  5. This was a frequent problem for MK going back years, but a lot of it depended on who was in charge too. Ardus was way, way better about it than Leet. It's not only external communication but internal communication too. Different members of gov don't always talk to each other and so one member may end up thinking their alliance wasn't informed while it's just that one gov member was informed and didn't tell anyone else. In the rush to get something done, the need to inform or consult allies or other gov members can fall by the wayside. The leaking thing is an issue too. There's a reason why when MK was disbanding and many were planning on going rogue, we literally told no one outside of MK except for TLR and TOP to ask for their protection a few hours before. That's the only way we could have kept it from becoming public knowledge. I do regret not telling more allies (especially ODN, who were way above average about talking to us, and especially about asking our opinions about potential treaty partners.) but even if we had it would have been only hours before, if that.

    Mushlims?

    I agree with what you said. Mushqaeda is obviously not directed at real life Muslims in general. Al qaeda and/or stereotypes of Muslims? Sure. The vast majority of former/current MK/MQ members, myself included, are not Islamophobic, or intend to mock Muslims. Mushqaeda has never been meant to be taken that seriously in any sense, in character or with the real life reference. It's just something we've had fun with. Also someone was making the argument that time and proximity to events matter. I'd point out that we (at least America) as a culture have always made fun of our enemies. Just check out this Donald Duck cartoon that was made during WW2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KA6HHgJC5BE
  7. If your primary source of "knowledge" about how world affairs and diplomacy works is from how it works in CN, you need to stop playing CN. "It's wrong in CN so it's wrong in real life". Unbelievable.

    Stats ITB: 3

    This is cool. You're missing a couple of alliances on our side.
  9. The game isn't going to die a sudden death, the player base is just going to keep withering away.
  10. I can't speak for others but the only reason that I posted about those issues was because it had created a degree of backlash from MK that the members of Umbrella could see and resented to some extent. That couldn't be resolved without explaining the context for the backlash. #3: That could have been a problem eventually, but that's not how you framed the issue at all.
  11. #2 is misleading at best. There never was a "campaign", only details on the gov level we brought up because they were directly pertinent to general issues between the two alliances. #3 was blatantly ridiculous on your part when the physical evidence, war counts and NS losses, showed FARK getting totally creamed and falling precipitously, and being engaged by 4 of the biggest hitters in the coalition (NG, TLR, Nor, TOP). You also didn't say anything about NG or TLR (I just reread the exchange just to make sure). Flak posted the stat at the time: "Fark has lost over 5m ns (40% of their start) in 9 days" For the record I don't believe that Omni is following any kind of agenda when it comes to these debates. Others clearly are.
  12. Bloc. Bloc. Bloc. Bloc. Bloc. It is "bloc" not "block."

    War

    I agree with this 100%. The whining about hitting an ally of an ally has gotten out of hand.
  14. I remember seeing this a while ago. It's always hilarious to see Xiph talking about his sides and people "defecting".
  15. Craig sums it up well. As for the LUE example, I think you'd see the same level of respect if any very important alliance disbanded.
