How to play Cybernations...

General Guidelines:


1: Ignore the advices from other, more experienced players, especially your alliance. You're always right, even if you bought five Guerrilla Camps during peacetime right before back-collecting. In fact, why not tell them to GTFO so they will never annoy you again?

2: The Golden Rule never applies. What's the chance of an alliance that you brutally crushed militarily and with excessive reps being able to return the favor within a few years?

3: Ignore all long term consequences of your actions, such as spying on not one, but multiple alliances, then insulting everyone in the OWF, and then apply for a membership of another alliance to avoid the raiders, the alliance you just insulted only days ago. It's not like you're going to need the burnt bridges in the future.

4: Harshly criticize and troll someone for something they did, then don't give advices on how to improve. Well, do give them at least one advice, tell them to give up, and make sure to blend some more insults with the advice. Remember, you want to crush as many people as possible if they're different than you.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Trading:


1: Lie to your potential trading partners to convince them that Fur and Lead would fit in any resource combos perfectly.

2: Should they wise up and do their homework, use blackmail and other questionable tactics to keep the trading partner. What? It's just a web browser game.

3: When a trading partner pays you money to keep trading, feel free to drop the trade as soon as you collect the money. He's too big to come after you, so why worry?

4: When you promise to accept a trade request, feel free to take a 20-day vacation from CN. Then rage at your trade partner(s) when they switched to other trade partners after losing their patience.

5: It's perfectly okay to quit CN without informing your trading partners. Like the above, bonus if you collected money just before quiting. Double bonus if you were in a trade circle and the organizer brought in the last needed trade member only a few hours ago.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tech dealing:


1: As a tech seller, when it's time to send your 50 tech, collect your tax and pay bills, and don't send the tech. Then, when the tech buyer drops you and finds a replacement, wait about 40 days before sending the tech to screw up his/her tech deal schedule.

2: When you receive the money, burn it immediately. Then when it's time to send the tech, send half-insulting messages to your tech buyers to inform them that you don't have enough money to buy 50 tech. It's not like they're going to pull some strings to get you roflstomped.

3: As a tech buyer, be inactive for 11 days when a seller sent you tech, then ask the seller why didn't he send the tech after the aid expired.

4: When you agree to a 3 million/100 tech deal, accept the $3 million, send 50 tech, delete all PMs relating to tech deals, and then ask for another $3 million insisting that the buyer agreed to a 3/50 deal. When the buyer complains, ignore him and take on another tech deal.

5: Promise your eight tech buyers that you'll send the tech on time, despite the fact that you're three aid slots short. They won't mind the 10-day delays.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Alliance stuff:


1: As an alliance leader, even if you know you're going to be inactive for long periods of time frequently, continue to be the leader and don't arrange for someone else to take over your role when you're gone.

2: When something urgent arises, especially if it's regarding another alliance, tell your alliance and the other alliance that you'll work on it. Then be inactive for a few months.

3: When a raider is crushing one of your members, leave the raider and the attacked victim alone. Surely he won't go after the rest of your members after being well-fed.

4: When your alliance does something that angers many other alliances and you're responsible for your alliance's actions, ask them, "umad?", then tell them to do something about. After that, whine like a little spoiled girl when they actually do something about it and you're on the receiving end of it.

5: Bully the little and neutral guys. What's the OWF and other alliances going to do to you? Pelt you death with words?

6: Stay in an alliance that's known for getting into wars, feed on reparations sent by other alliances, report that you're combat-ready, and then flee from the battlefield shortly after your alliance DoW. Your pixels are extremely precious.

7. Same thing applies when it comes to inter-alliance politics. Treaty with warmongering alliances to feed on reps, then bail out and flee to the other side of the treaty web when crap hits the fan. Remember, pixels over friends. Bonus if you also paint your former friends as the villains for the crimes they committed while ignoring the crimes that you committed when you were still treatied to them.

8: Feel free to feed on economical aids, burn the money on military stuff during peacetime, and don't bother perfecting your resource combo and improvement sets. Then complain when your alliance yanks the flow of cash after noticing your usage of their money.

9: It's okay to sell your alliance's confidential information for IG money or tech. As stated above, your pixels are important.

10: Remember that RL is more important than CN. So when your alliance needs you the most, feel free to finish that "War and Peace" book and watch 24 hours worth of hilarious random Youtube videos. Your alliance can wait.

11: Don't be polite, especially if you're applying for a diplomatic mask or membership. Then accuse the alliance of being a jerk when they deny your diplomatic mask or membership.

12: Even if you have an extremely unstable internet and computer, try to carry on the IRC negotiation instead of getting a substitute negotiator. None of those guys at the table would mind you disconnecting and reconnecting every few minutes.

13: When your alliance orders you to stand down during a war, don't listen to those snobby higher ups! You are always right so be the man and keep fighting! It's not like you're going to single-handy end up destroying your alliance when the opposing alliances see fit to turn up the heat.

14: As an alliance leader, tell the OWF that you'll severely punish others for certain actions, such as raiding on a certain color sphere. Then, when one of your members does the exact same actions that you mentioned (such as raiding on the certain color sphere), turn blind eye or drop the enforcement (then reapply the enforcement a week later). The OWF and all other alliances don't give a damn about hypocrites, so why fear?.

15: Play favoritism. Even if you knew your best friend would be incompetent if he/she was given a certain job position, give it anyways! It's not like you're going to generate friction within the alliance when other members who felt your friend didn't deserve the job are enraged. Remember, the Spoils System worked pretty darn well in RL, so why can't it work in CN?

16: Like the above, should two members get in a dispute and one of them is your friend, automatically assume your friend is always right without hearing the other person's point of view.

17: Interpret your alliance's charter or something like it as literally as possible and exploit any loopholes, regardless of how unethical it may be. For example, if an alliance member is making too much noise, then boot him/her out quickly by using the exploits and refuse to give a fair trial or allow the person to defend him/herself. Then proceed to propagandize it and paint the booted member as the "villain".

18: IT'S ALL ABOUT YOU!!! Do whatever it takes to grab as much power as possible regardless of how many people, including friends, you need to back-stab and step on! What are they going to do when you have the hammer? Drown you with angry rants?!

19: Build an alliance and make it known in the OWF. You don't need any experience in alliance operations or even CN nor do you need that darn charter, government setup or even a forum. Let the world know that your two-man alliance should be respected!


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
OWF:


1: Blur the OOC/IC line and carry out illegal OOC actions against those who wronged you ICly, bonus if you frame them for crimes they didn't commit and get the FBI to go after them. It's not like the Almighty Admin has any authority over your email account hijackings.

2: Cause drama! Claim an important player has died after he/she has been inactive for a while! It's a silly text-based game anyways, so why not have fun?

3: You have 100k of NS, that other poster has only 10k of NS. Therefore, that person is automatically inferior in everything so feel free to constantly insult and harass him/her.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tech raiding:


1: Should you come across a nuke-armed target, feel free to raid it. Your alliance will be more than happy to send you reinforcements and sanction the target when he/she starts mashing the nuke button.

2: It's perfectly okay to ZI your targets and ignore their numerous pleas for peace. Besides, your red nuke button has about an inch of dust on it anyways.

3: It's perfectly okay to blackmail your targets and strike fear into them to extort pixels out of them. Demand them to pay significant amount of money or tech and remind them if they fail to do so, you'll ZI them.

4: Use tech raiding as a recruitment measure. Like the above, blackmail your targets. If they don't join, then feel free to ruin their day.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Moderation:


1: Troll the moderation team and give them a bad day, especially the Admin. It's a lot of fun. It worked pretty well for the dozens of past members that mysteriously disappeared from CN and were never heard of again.

2: Should you get slapped with the Ban Hammer, repeat the above in the appeals section. It will end well. Maybe.

3: Bring your alliance into the moderation mess if possible. There's safety in numbers.

True that. No matter how large you are never have GCs or Barracks up during peace time and never have more than the bare minimum troop level so even the lamest nation in your NS range can anarchy you on the 1st GA. Think of the savings you can make it has to be $50k per day bills and $100k for the GCs.

OP that is such a good story. I really can't pick "one part" that I liked the best. But if you were to hold a gun to my head, I would go with the part with the pictures. I just got off the phone with an armored truck company. They will be arriving in the morning to pick up my back up disk, which I just saved your story on to. There probably won't be much traffic, because I forwarded the police your story, and they agreed to escort the armored truck to its destination. At first the police chief didn't want to help, but then I guided his attention to the incredible pictures that you embedded along with your story. I mean, the story was good enough. But as soon as I saw the pictures that went along with it, I called my grandmother, who is blind and has Alzheimer’s disease to tell her. As far as her doctors in the nursing home are concerned, she is cured of all her ailments now that she heard your cool story. She is actually preparing to run the Boston marathon this year now. Thank you OP.

I notice the distinct lack of a propaganda guide.

Feel free to suggest something then. I'm not the most creative guy around here and would never match the combined creativity of thousands of members.

As one who has done this before, I can actually say that this isn't a bad idea. I mean, if you're going to raid, you might as well instate a serfdom as well, right?

It's funny that the same people this bothers is the same people that everything bothers all the time. I can't wait for more to show up. HHAYD is one of a kind and I'm happy to have him here. All of you haters can piss off.
