  1. You should do a report on when they were the only interesting thing to happen for the time they existed.
  2. Same, only I can't even be bothered to poke it with a stick anymore. Basically it's the same weirdo's who ruined the game occasionally making really odd posts on the OWF. The games age was kind of unique for its time. Bringing in folks from all over the world where the internet hadn't so co-depended everyone that the type of interaction we have now (Discord, social media, et al) was still possible for you to never know your opponents or friends. I don't think you'd find too many young folk interested in the current iteration of the game. The mechanics would need tweaked but as has
  3. The people responsible for the death of the game know who they are. The overall community was never truly at fault. A handful of shortsighted folks lacking imagination and too happy to just churn along with OOC friendships rather than understanding the rise and fall of all is what made this game great. Really just came back to wave to all of the folks I've seen posting their buhbyes.
  4. I keep checking back twice a year hoping to see some decent prose in declarations of war, but it seems it's about the same as it has been for nearly 5+ years. Still remember reading logs of the goons 1.0, \m/, continuum days, schattenman leaks... and being so utterly disappointed at the lack of bredth in alliance leaders much later. This game was most fun on the individual alliance level, as OOC friendships tainted most of the global politics and was not as nuanced nor easily surmountable as internal politics. Being in alliances with vibrant personalities and semi-democ
  5. Walshington is still an ass. hold the presses.
  6. i still have u beat with gophergate 2014
  7. There's nothing scary about a bully
  8. Now you just have to clarify what a multi is, because based on your current policy and its application I'm not finding a clear definition anywhere.
  9. They don't have the technology to support such an undertaking.
  10. Or if multiple nations disappeared overnight.
  11. I have no interest in investing thousands of hours of work in a nation simulator to attempt to break up what amounts to OOC circle jerking for the amusement of a handful of people. That card isn't going to work. It's not 2006 and I'm not 18 anymore with too much time on my hands. Folks have repeatedly gone out of their way to kill the game -- advocating for "change," (re: proposing that large nations become even more powerful,) that has lent its current shape -- a diminishing pool where most "new," nations fall into the wonderful "multi," rule. None of these nations have any impact on the ga
  12. Totally with you. The "leaders," of today -- if you can call them that -- are completely unoriginal.
  13. Operation Goliath to take back tech importation supremacy from Umbrella must be initiated.
  14. exploiting Kilo is a policy i can get in front of, and behind.
  15. I found this recently in a magazine. They're probably completely unrelated.
  16. It all gets ignored by the mods.
  17. I totally and wholeheartedly agree with everything said here -- it's really a problem the admin/mods made for themselves and the onus shouldn't be on folks who are utilizing the rule (unless proven beyond a shadow of a doubt they're breaking it ** something you'll never convince me of even if you document them logging on immediately after one another,) to prove they're not breaking it, because it was made legal.
  18. Once again, if there is one computer in the household, or even two -- if people are sharing it it's really not that uncommon. I'm really having a hard time justifying any moderation action on that basis or any basis. "HEY I NEED HELP ON MY NATION, HERE LET ME LOG OUT OF MINE REAL QUICK AND WE'LL LOOK AT YOURS." Even if mac/ip/et al are all the same, there is literally no way you can prove even a preponderance of evidence that I think by opening that pandora's box the moderation owes the users they administrate before terminating them for a rule they essentially changed from black and white t
  19. I'm confused, someone was deleted for another person in their household having a nation (something the mods say they allowed? Frankly unless the mods are actually in your house at all times, I don't see how any kind of evidence (including logging in at the same time) could be damning,. Two people decide to play the same game at the same time all of the time in other arenas.
  20. The only disagreement I have with you above on at what point we start calling these "tools," full blown automation. Whether it's pinging users who have failed to fill their slots, or providing instantaneously a most beneficial war opponent at the click of the button -- folks communicate and interact less with their alliance mates. At some point you're no longer playing Cybernations and instead are just simulating a simulation. Pretty soon we won't have to worry about inactivity because we can just have Joe Schmoe press a button and he'll login every x days and send his aid out like a g
  21. Not denying it is. I just want to know how many hours of coding went into making it a possibility so I know who to send the CN award. That and a little bit of grumpiness about how slim a shot a new user has at replicating such capability.
