  1. "Real World" international relations, on the whole, doesn't take into account leadership changes quite as often as you make it out to be Craig. According to most academic and scholarly literature, foreign policy is dictated by relative power between individual states: who are portrayed as unitary actors. Sure, you get the odd article saying that America invaded Iraq because Dick Cheney is the devil but all in all most scholars attribute it to aspects unique to America as a whole: ideological need to police the world, the instability of strategic carbon resources ect ect... So, without going too far off, I think your reply is fairly unsubstantiated and more than a bit juvenile/uneducated. No offense, you're probably a great chap in person and sharp as a whip, it's just that I don't think anyone with even a passing acquaintance with a International Relations 101 class would agree with you. Thank you everyone else for your opinions and comments.
  2. Wasn't me posting in a year old DoE topic praising TIO for being original, then complain in blog post about Bob not being original and how everything is a copy of a copy(Hint this is TIO2, less original government wise than the original TIO). Why you so mad? I praise things that I think are original, and have a blogpost saying that Bob should be more original... Thus QED I am... What? Unfairly treating TIO? Fool, you crazed. Flipping through the OWF, and then reading this... I'm not sure what you've been reading, but 99.99% of the OWF, even for all those alliances you've listed, are copy-paste. "Interesting, Sort of Witty Title; Preferably Puny." A short little introduction, all OOC. Copy-paste. Signed, Random Names. That's all I see, I don't see how you can make the conclusion that just because Mushroom Kingdom has a different flag then it makes it a new and unique alliance. Equally: NPO, TOP, all the others you've mentioned. To a person like me, who really is just looking over the alliances unbiasedly, they're the same. Sorry.
  3. Thank you Bama, Hyperbad and Savage Man for your mature, well-reasoned, thoughts.
  4. I've noticed this for a while, so I thought I might as well throw it out there. I've done a lot of writing recently for finals, so I don't feel too verbose. Of course, if anyone is truly that interested in probing my assumptions, I'll probably start becoming progressively more tangent prone and wordier. Nevertheless, not to put a too fine a point on it: all CN Alliances are the same dull shade of OOC. Sure, there could be some cosmetic differences. Perhaps some weird personal animosity between some members exists, as if CN mattered. Perhaps some have an oddly German overtone, as if beating a dead horse into jelly is somehow an exciting and unique pastime. Yet what I don't see is IC anything. At least, nothing IC that'd I recognize as IC. Much less an IC persona that is, let's say it together, interesting. Everyone is OOC and happy, or maybe a bit snarky. Yet even the snarkiness isn't terribly interesting, and neither is the uniform moralizing. I'm also getting a bit tired of so many OOC memes running over into IC, and replacing vaguely legitimate reasons/morals/principles; at least, as legitimate as a forum browser game can be. Not only is most of these memes masquerading as something more irritating to new players, it's really only appealing to a very narrow range of nerdy adolescents. If I see another baby crying about infra, or someone yelling that friends are more important than pixels; I'm going to cry. That's OOC, and to someone who doesn't really believe in having 'friends' through CN--it just doesn't make sense. Being for 'free markets' or 'tyranny?' Yeah, that makes sense. To new players and players like me. Otherwise? Nah, it just doesn't do it for me and I'm getting a bit bored with the whole thing. Sometimes people also get mad, but it's always the same OOC 'u mad' uniformity that makes this game so... Uninteresting. I'd love to see more alliances like the OBR, who always seem to be doing their own thing because frankly they are. Their IC adherence precludes most interaction because CN has become an eye watering shade of OOC dullness. Sadly enough... *shrugs* I just don't see that many alliances following in their footsteps. Though I would appreciate it.
  5. Oh interesting. Hello there, new mod.

  6. I've never been concerned with CN Politics. That aside, you're the first person who has made it anywhere close to the mythical realm of 'interesting.'
