  1. Nope. Don't plan on deleting either, but I'll be going pretty much totally inactive soon, save for logging in periodically to make sure friends don't lose trades. With the dwindling number of people here, keeping a full trade set will become increasingly problematic for the remainder of the game. This is being one of the last times I'll ever post here (total posts around 7,500 over 11+ years), some thoughts as I exit. 1. This was on balance...fun and I'm glad I played. Oh sure it had its highs and lows, all games do. Would I change anything? One or two things of c
  2. Yeah, or he'll go crying to Cuba. Actually he'll go crying to Cuba over a whole list of things because competitive gaming is for a-holes. Right, LJ?
  3. Wipes sleep out of eyes Wait, people are still doing this? Whatever. Retirement announcement forthcoming once this is over I guess. I kept my nation on the mantle as sort of a memory of old times, never expecting I'd have to fight with her again, so not really prepared and not really interested in fighting to be honest. Hell, I've forgot more tactics and rules than I remember at this point. I suppose the customary thing to do is to try to fight back, but after being sucker punched multiple times, not much to fight back with. Kids, it's just not fun and I can't get
  4. How about, "We Had to Stage This Elaborate Curbstomp So ChairmanHal Could Finally Get to 10 Million Causalities and enderland Would Come Out and Play and Walsh Would Return From the Dead" War? Meh, probably too long. How about: "The Boogie With St(ewie) War"
  5. Any time that people who play this game and/or help to run it pass away IRL, it's a very sad day. Thoughts and prayers to Keelah's friends, family, and co-workers here at CN.
  6. I don't think there is any question under the right circumstances raiding is very profitable. I have raided in the past, would change nothing. Raiding is a business venture. For raiders at all levels, you are hoping that the money invested (including any potential damages) is more than your losses. In the past in higher tier raiding, raiders like bones could count on an almost limitless resupply of tech and even cash, along with the ability to fill the defensive slots of the target at a moment's notice. Risk was minimal if you were smart about your target selection, as was the
  7. If you weren't running your nation into the ground through pointless warfare and stupidity, I'd probably give a $%&@ what you think too.
  8. Following orders. Sage orders as it turns out. You wouldn't know the "Valhalla Way" if it were diagramed out in a Power Point presentation and explained to you like you were five.
  9. You keep trying to sound smug, but it's just not working. Your defensive slots are filled...again. Maybe you should be concentrating on that, hmm?
  10. I've personally never been a fan of paperless treaties, though if there was a handshake agreement between Kashmir and NSO that they had each other's back, then NSO has an obligation to assist in some way that is agreeable to Kashmir. If there was no such agreement, then that would fall into the "regrettable but completely understandable" category. I'm not going to condemn NSO unless they refuse to provide help of any sort, even with postwar rebuilding. I wouldn't expect that to happen.
  11. The worst part of it all was not a) allowing ourselves to get matched up against NPO to begin with (we were supposed to go in against C&G with IRON), b) the mess with nuking/not nuking NPO (my recollection is that lasted a day if that), c) the missed opportunity to hit LOSS even if it meant we'd be fighting on both sides (something I'll admit I was not a fan of), d) the DBDC raids (which would have never happened if we had simply cancelled the NG treaty when we talked about doing before the war), or even e) the other missed opportunities to hit other targets because "RnR might get mad" or
  12. Back in the day it was also more than justified. Simply surviving isn't winning. More things were compartmentalized than should have been. But at the time of the whole NPO thing Chefjoe was legitimately not around. You say you were talking to him at that time? Well that would have been more contact than we had.
