  1. They can fill OC's slots exactly because they have a lot of free slots themselves. Were they at 100% efficiency they wouldn't have slots to use with OC. Glad to have cleared it for you.
  2. The Tournament Edition resets, I was talking of something more gradual.
  3. My uneducated explanation is much simpler: this game exceedingly rewards seniority and there's no attrition or disincentive that goes against just staying there, doing little or nothing for any long period of time. The seniors grew up but they didn't all leave the game, their interest for the game faded but they remained attached to their old big nations and alliances. They built a cluster of treaties to freeze everything they could, they have no incentive to put their old nations and alliances at risk. With time almost everyone became senior, and here you are. If there was some mechanism that made stats disappear with time you'd see real action again. Good luck having anything like that implemented into the game, though. I won't hold my breath. (And I'm one of those seniors that moved on, anyway. Or though.)
  4. Thanks for reminding me of how much easier it is to have no part in any of that. Impressive work, anyway, my respect to those involved in creating the tool.
  5. ChimaJunkaTywiZigur has been accused of many things but this is the first time I hear he'd be crypto fascist. I understand the fun that can be found in making light of his too often absurd discourses, but... it lacks gentleness. Gentleness which - and yes and apologies: I know that I'm going out on a limb with this - is something he'd be in dire need to be shown and to experience. Beware, do not create your little personal Goldstein. Keep watch on yourselves. (But what do I know, anyway?)
  6. Bragging and bickering over war results is just as exciting as it was five thousand days ago, which by the way is roughly the same era in which actual conventions were effectively purged from this place. But I still care, I'm that old fashioned.
  7. I'm saying that her mentors, at least the ones I think she was alluding to, were way too arrogant to credibly flatter anyone. If you want to be nice you can say that I'm implying that they weren't without merits. Incidentally, licking boots isn't natural.
  8. For once, you're wrong, her mentors couldn't have taught her any of that.
  9. Thank heavens, hopefully all you people can stick to just fight and handle this world like it was just a game.
  10. I forgot: thanks man, as he said he was just making a joke (not a bad one IMHO). TBH there are people that don't like me and never liked me. But it's true that just too many are that generous towards my humble person. I probably never did anything notable, maybe it's just that I rarely step on anyone's toes. Most people are better than what others (or even themselves) think of them. Oh, and someone help Dude get out of his confusion.
  11. Someone that would love to receive flowers, especially from you. Don't be mean and at least consider making him happy. Flowers, peace, love... everyone should get some of each.
  12. Agreed. The same is valid for me since about 2008. BTW it makes one think that being gov (and active/in an active alliance) in an asynchronous (not real time) browser game is that demanding... something must be wrong. But I digress.
  13. I'll message you in game just not to let you feel left alone, Al. ❤️ On the other hand you don't need to provide elaborate lies about your reasons not to go back to CLAWS, just admit that you want a change and be over with it!
  14. Forums aren't used anymore, basically (there are exceptions, but they're exceptions). Just go with discord.
  15. Do we want to talk of when you have a pending incoming tech aid but the sending nation has yet to replenish it, and you get a message recommending you to cancel the offer? Everyone by now should know that you just wait for the next time, and years ago I have suggested to update the text, to no avail. It's not that people just passively accept stuff, it's that questioning it is futile.
  16. I don't know about the specifics of this case, but in general bear in mind that your enemy is never required to provide you with anything you wish for, nor you should expect it. If I was your enemy and I could deny you hitting any goal of yours I would totally consider it.
  17. I'll add: if the system automatically set bills at 20 days when returning from inactivity, a nation months behind could exploit it to basically reset their bills at no cost. Now that I think of it, having the system do exactly this when the nation has been inactive for really a long time (say, six months, one year, or...) could actually make sense to encourage old players to come back to the game. (Assuming that them old players coming back does make sense...)
  18. The GPA won't do anything anymore, it's dead and boring as it can get. Judging one's (anyone's) opinion based on who (you think) they are, not on its merit, is downright stupid. And I mean it as a mere description, not as an insult. Incidentally, I think I still remember a couple of things about war, reps etc. The intent of inflicting some punishment as a deterrent against future transgressions - because consequences etc - is totally kosher in my book. My apologies for having misunderstood, then.
