  2. [quote name='im317' timestamp='1343343474' post='3015896'] there isn't exactly a cap for GRL. global radiation = (total nations hit by nukes * 300) / total nations its peaked for this war due to the limited number of nukes you can buy although its going to have a few sharp drops when its been 30 days from a large front peacing out. [/quote] Actually, the theoretical maximum is 300; If X is total nations, then (X*300)/X=GRL, and X/X=1, so then you get 300. Or there's the cap at 5, but whatever. EDIT: This came off really snarky, and that's not how I mean it. I'm also too lazy to fi
  3. Perhaps I'm alone in thinking this, but would it make more sense to group the two wars now, or leave off the LSF war altogether? It's pretty clear to most, I think, that the LSF front isn't going to expand past what it already has. The loss to IRON's score is going to be almost exclusively caused by Sparta, or so I would hope, so the LSF front is going to generally be represented by inaccurate or misleading stats. No biggie if nobody else agrees, just thought I'd put that out there.
  4. [quote name='D34th' timestamp='1340552169' post='2994464'] I don't think you understand what irony means, [/quote] I'm not sure you understand what irony means; the example of irony he put forward is an excellent one.
  5. [quote name='jerdge' timestamp='1340149494' post='2989387'] People making peace mode jokes and callouts are doing it for a [b]reason[/b] too. I anyway commend your post and I hope it helps to keep the debate on peace mode at a minimum. [/quote] You make a fair point; however, often the [b]reason[/b] is that those people think they're making a valid point that needs attention. I'm making the argument here that the vast majority of reasons for posting about peace mode are stupid ones. Thanks for your commendation - I will be sure to have a medal made to put in my sig
  6. [quote name='James Dahl' timestamp='1340145000' post='2989262'] People don't have anything else to argue about, and they don't want to just be quiet so you have "lol peace mode" [/quote] I suppose I have too much confidence in peoples' ability to be creative about their posturing.
  7. So every war, people start posturing about things that the other side is doing. That's all well and good, and for forum lurkers like me, it can be awfully fun to watch, whether it's for or against you. But can people leave the Peace Mode Warrior out of it this time? I'm pretty sure most of us have been through this war thing before. If you haven't been paying attention at all since Karma and before, this will be news to you; everybody puts people into peace mode. Sure, an alliance 100% in peace mode is something you can poke fun at. An alliance 100% in war mode will attract attention too,
  8. Any tl;dr for those of us who don't have time to watch it yet? All I'm getting from your post is "FUTURE SOON" and a vague reference to what could be referred to as another industrial revolution, and I don't have time to watch the video at the moment.
  9. I fully agree with jerdge - but I think it's also important to differentiate between slander and genuine criticism. In this particular case, it doesn't look like there's any confusion; one comment of encouragement should never draw this sort of fire. But I think it's also important to be able to level with someone and tell them that something is wrong with what they're doing. That sort of thing is becoming harder to do in our society because so many criticisms are taken as insults somehow. I guess I'm saying that any system supporting free speech should especially protect critical speech that
  10. [quote name='Nikita Ilyich Lenin' timestamp='1337074863' post='2967659'] Can we outsource our econ to you. [/quote] Roq, you should consider doing this for small alliances. Walk in, help them set up a tech program, and leave a guide behind. I don't think anyone doubts your ability to get tech running.
  11. Not knowing how many streaks go on for how long, would it be possible to perhaps display all streak above a certain threshold? Or, alternatively, simply a top 3 or top 5 streaks in length? I don't get a lot of meaningful information when I just see streak updates every 5 days - that means five different updates to check to see who is on a streak right now.
  12. Since you'll be in the neighborhood anyway, I hear Forks, WA is a great center for paranormal... stuff, anyway. And Bigfoot is supposed to live in Washington or British Columbia, I think. Right?
  13. [quote name='jerdge' timestamp='1331630016' post='2937535'] Like you needed that to get on top... Wouldn't it be the first time, for IRON, BTW? I can't imagine another alliance which had that potential for that long, and that didn't reach it yet: I guess that such a long "delay" will just make it sweeter! Or, I don't know, on April 1st we could announce your comeback to neutrality and the merge into the Independent Republican Agency of Nations for the Protection of Green Oranges...

  14. A friend of mine wrote this essay for a class that he took called "Confronting Moral Dilemmas." It's pretty funny - read past the first few paragraphs for the better parts. For what it's worth, he got an A on this paper. At the beginning of the term, I felt as though I had a coherent grasp on many concepts concerning morality. I have strong opinions concerning many of the issues mentioned in the course catalogue, and I was excited to take a class which would focus on moral dilemmas and allow me to explore concrete examples of controversial issues. In that capacity the class has been very help
  15. [quote name='shahman' timestamp='1329885059' post='2925407'] I think more than once-a-week all alliance would be too much. I'm against it. Also, I like the new format. A++ [/quote] Both of these. Though I might be biased somewhat, given that my alliance is in the sanction race anyway :V
