  1. Buck is god. Question 2. Why will you not admit that you are really buck?
  2. So you mean something like the Harmlins except a bit closer? http://cybernations.wikia.com/wiki/The_H%C3%A4rmlins
  3. Lines being drawn/erased. I look forward to the upcoming Loki-Tywin war.
  4. Some people have waaaay too much time on their hands.
  5. Thats not worth much. Though I suppose that this just lends evidence to you being a buckaroo re-roll
  6. GOONS is in a category of their own (Whether that's a good thing or not depends on the eye of the beholder).
  7. It's actually a pretty good idea as far as recruitment is concerned. However, there are new nations joning every day. Retention is the problem. As to how to fix that, I haven't the slightest.
  8. Especially the advertising. It doesn't have to be some big fancy expensive ad to work. I believe that when Fark was founded, it managed to get permission to advertise itself on fark.com, and gained hundreds of members that way.
  9. Well, judging from the current war, an MDP ally isnt expected to declare war on EVERY alliance who dows on their ally. Generally one or two is considered enough. I'm not sure if people would want to be forced to counter on a half dozen alliances. If such a suggestion was implemented, it would certainly shorten an alliances life-span quite a bit, as micros would be forced to choose between hitting alliances several times their size, or suffer severe economic penalites. Under those circumstances, many would simply leave that alliance. This doesn't really account for instances where an alliance requested its allies stay out of a conflict. If this suggestion was implemented, it is likely that some alliances would simply switch to just signing optionals rather than mandatories. It also doesn't account for neutrals, who don't sign treaties, and thus would be cut out of the benefits that would become to be seen as the norm in other alliances. Micros would also be affected, as people left for big alliances with lots of connections, and thus more economic benefits. The five day limit doesn't take into account instances in which alliances are held in reserve during wars. While this is a good idea in theory, execution would either be difficult, or make life difficult for the players.
  10. In much of human history, gold has been valuable because we thought it was. You yourself said it: People use it to make jewelry. There are many other materiels that can be used to make jewelry, Gold just happens to be a tradition more than anything. Yes, gold does have practical value, but much of its value comes from people thinking it is valuable.
  11. Gold is valuable only because we attach a value to it.
  12. It would be a pain to keep track of all the treaties like that, and, also, it would be easy to abuse. On a somewhat related note, CN just hit 9,994 nations. We just started of the year in a very bad way. Last person out, please turn off the lights.
