Roll NPO? Also hello again

Recommended Posts

The game ended years ago, just nobody turned out the lights and played the "go home" music.

 

Roll IRON.

As I've posted elsewhere, the game died for me when, working with FAN, I obtained information on a massive cheating ring, reported it, provided multiple screenshots, and nothing happened.

 

That was in 2009.

 

Completely unrelated to the above, congratulations to the NPO on winning the game.

Just stumbled upon these forums again and can’t believe I still see names I remember 

 

Some are here to see the end, some are here in vain hope Planet Bob can return to its former glory and some are here just to remember old times.

I don't think it's ever coming back, sadly.

Pretty much.  I'm just here because of all the memories of drama.  I've actually spent most of my time in this game in RIA even though I mostly don't associate my history with RIA, that's just the last place I landed before everything died.

There's so much awesome history that we all collectively just made up and went along with, in a game with an admin who didn't really care maybe even at all to be honest.  It's pretty amazing to look back and see what we, the players, did here to make it fun.

I'll see y'all again when we hit 1k.

It took effort to build the game from nothing and it will take effort to bring it back. There are just to few willing to put in the effort.

It also took effort to try to make the odds 50/50 and not 95/5.

True, thats why it would take a community effort to fix the issue.

And what effort would that entail? As far as the game's statistics and treaty webs go, your very alliance is part of the 95/5 problem, is it not?

No question we're part of the problem. Our political connections have been established to maintain security. And we dont engage in any kind of political roleplay that would delve deeper or pose unnecessary risk to the global peace. 

 

Collectively new alliance arent viable as a means of shifting culture or discourses. I'm not leaving my alliance and neither is anyone else that has established connections and community. 

 

Without growth in the community there is only decay. And with most alliances either completely inactive or socially removed from the world thats all that is left.

So you acknowledge your AA is part of the problem, but won't initiate any community effort because you wish to maintain the very security that is causing stagnation. You also claim that new alliances don't have the clout to have a forceful enough impact.

 

You can't call for 'community effort' if you expect others to do it for you and you aren't going to at least try and lead a charge.

 

You are the dog in the house that is on fire saying "This is fine"

Thank you for clarifying my point.
