  1. Yeah, with all the strays returning home, there should be a quick jump there. As far as buybacks go, that could make the gains jumping around a lot over the next few weeks as people hit their backcollections and polish up their ruins.
  2. Yeah, I didn't know if it was your end or mine, but I suspected yours (since usually I get a bounce-back in the rare occurrences when one doesn't go through). Glad everything's solved now, though I don't envy you sorting through about 250 emails. That sounds tiring.
  3. So, I glance at this topic tonight, and am astonished to see it's 197 pages long. I reflect on my comment (ages ago, it seems) that if this drags out, IRON will be at a distinct advantage (a comment, by the way, that shahenshah pretty aggressively disagreed with). I come to two conclusions: 1) shah probably ought to admit I was right. 2) I'm amazed IRON is still keeping white peace on the table. At this point, it's pretty clear Gre isn't interested in that offer. Might as well start making demands. I know it sounds silly, but if you're not demanding anything, there's nothing you can
  4. Personally, I was disappointed by the lack of candy.
  5. [quote name='Shamshir' date='06 April 2010 - 06:24 AM' timestamp='1270553036' post='2250261'] I don't think it's the bottom half you need to be worried about but the nation of IRON. IRON have a way out and the longer they take to surrender the longer this war will draw out. While I can understand that many in CnG + some otherundeserving buggers may be annoyed by the fact they are not getting thier reps. The fact is that they have those reps in the bank. Regardless of what happens to the Grämlins they will get thier reps one way or another. It's how long IRON and DAWN wants to be paying these
  6. [quote name='Branimir' date='05 April 2010 - 05:07 PM' timestamp='1270505218' post='2249600'] Was fun seeing Letum destroy Denial, btw. [/quote] I dunno, I came away with the opinion that they both made utter fools of themselves. [quote name='Letum' date='06 April 2010 - 12:39 AM' timestamp='1270532330' post='2250091'] That is one way to phrase it. The other way to phrase it is that IRON, a war-weary alliance of 3.4m NS, has to fight off a fresh alliance of 3.9m NS and an immense advantage within a certain rank range. For example, IRON only has 20 nations that are [i]within striking r
  7. The biggest problems with these big federal programs (I include health care, Social Security, welfare, etc.) is that they inevitably turn into a horrible mess. Welfare and unemployment are regularly, deliberately abused. SS is spending more than it's taking in, and likely doomed to eventual failure (those who're currently paying into it aren't likely to see a dime from it, unless something drastically changes). Why should I expect this to turn out differently? I find the arguments comparing it to schools rather interesting (since private schools are almost always better than public ones).
  8. [quote name='Merrie Melodies' date='03 March 2010 - 02:04 AM' timestamp='1267600178' post='2212417'] Somehow I don't think you understand the mindset of a raider. [/quote] I think he sums up the typical raider well enough. I've yet to run into one who regularly attacks upward against multiple targets. [quote name='Newhotness' date='03 March 2010 - 08:26 PM' timestamp='1267666326' post='2213163'] thats only some raiders. and then there are those who would like to be in an all out alliance war but arent in one so instead they raid, and if the raided nation fights back then hell yeah, its
  9. [quote name='Newhotness' date='12 March 2010 - 12:41 AM' timestamp='1268372786' post='2223096'] AND, as Don stated, [b]new[/b] friends were made. And im sure [b]new[/b] enemies have been made. so again, nothing new [/quote] On that note, I'm done with this thread.
  10. [quote name='Don Fernando' date='12 March 2010 - 12:15 AM' timestamp='1268371255' post='2223049'] Your not in our shoes, the same as I'm not in yours. I haven't judged you, why do you judge us. Peoples perspective on things changes with the position the set themselves in. I'm just glad i've met new people, and this whole mess got straightened out, despite the troubles we've had trying to get things fixed properly. [/quote] [quote name='Newhotness' date='12 March 2010 - 12:24 AM' timestamp='1268371816' post='2223068'] no, it just means i see it differently than you. as stated before our fri
  11. [quote name='Baldr' date='11 March 2010 - 11:55 PM' timestamp='1268370046' post='2223013'] So after all the "We won't pay reps" talk, PC says they'll pay reps - but they don't say how much. The $210M that was calculated as the damages (which is what your rules say you will do.) The $100M that Echelon asked you to pay at first? The $50 that they asked you to pay later? Less? I think it's good that you've agreed to pay anything at all, but I think it would be fair to post the amount. People are going to see this differently if it's $3M than if it's $200, etc. [/quote] I think the prima
  12. [quote name='Caffine1' date='11 March 2010 - 07:31 PM' timestamp='1268354229' post='2222646'] Regardless of how people outside of PC feel about nuking in techraiding, PC seems to be forbidden from doing so. It just seems a little ridiculous. [/quote] Why let pesky rules get in the way now? [quote name='Rey the Great' date='11 March 2010 - 08:50 PM' timestamp='1268358938' post='2222754'] I guess if nobody redacts his policies within months. It should tell you something when your alliance hasn't had a very successful negotiation/foreign affairs (from some people's perspective) hist
  13. [quote name='Tick1' date='11 March 2010 - 11:45 AM' timestamp='1268326275' post='2222193'] AirMe, I'm not stating SBA isn't an alliance. I'm clearly saying that SBA is 'SBA' and not Spacebattle Alliance. Poison Clan did raid the alliance SBA, but Poison Clan didn't raid Echelon's treaty partner Spacebattle Alliance. Whether or not people will agree with me doesn't matter the fact is AA doesn't stand for Alliance Acronym Affiliation. [/quote] You know, it really says something about PC's collective intelligence if your best argument is that you were unable to figure out that Spacebattle.com
  14. [quote name='AlmightyGrub' date='11 March 2010 - 01:34 AM' timestamp='1268289604' post='2221917'] I think [b]if everyone was reasonable,[/b] tech raided within the ranks of the unaligned and left it at that, we would all be much happier. The reality is not that alliances are raided, but that the raiding parties seem to take delight in refusing to take any sort of responsibility for it. I will have the greatest respect for \m/ if they behave responsibly, raiding freely but making amends when things go wrong. I will not respect anyone who continues with the ''well what are you going to do a
  15. [quote name='Earogema' date='11 March 2010 - 01:10 AM' timestamp='1268288129' post='2221887'] Then I shall simply repeat what I've said earlier in the thread. The only logical course is for you to commit to action. Words on the OWF aren't bad, but none of PC's allies seem to have canceled on them. In fact, they seem to have shown quite well that they will support PC in the attack. Either you dig up more incriminating evidence or you attack. The only other option is to stew away angrily and hope that eventually you get enough treaties or the PC cancels on them, but tbh, I doubt Echelon wi
