Arrg you people have dragged me back in here again

1. Wolfpack is not an honorable alliance atrocities their attacks on me fully sactioned by their leadership yet contrary to their charter and following extortion is more than enough evidence of that.

2. Please stop fighting over this stupid browser game I know for a fact every single person in this thread is above it you just need to step back for a minute and look around.

Despite my best intentions to not even look at this thread until I cool off, replies to PMs keep dragging me back.

A second Nueva Vida member has piled on Ragnaroc, but Ragnaroc has not replied to my original inquiry about whether he wants help, and has been inactive now for nine days. Even as steamed as I still am, I can't justify a punitive counterattack by Fiducia if Ragnaroc has already dropped out of C N.

Hmmm, dusty thread...

Anyway, things seem to have calmed down with Nueva Vida no longer attacking (or recruiting...), and the holidays. My nation is at 3999.99 infra, and I've decided that's a good spot to hold for a while. So what I'll be doing is sending out aid packages to the Wombat Protectorate, starting from the bottom. It looks like I'll be making nearly $2.5 million per day (after bills), so I'll be able to send out aid fairly often. The plan right now is send $3 million to Singularity on Sunday, then another $3 million to Tyyria on Tuesday, with the rest of the cash either buying myself some more tech or land. Then sometime in the week after that is Fiducia, Ragnaroc (if active), NarbozaLand, and Hevordah Hive (if Ragnaroc inactive). By then 10 days will elapse between the first $3 million to Singularity, so I'll go 'round again. Basically until all of WP is closer to parity, or we get raided again, or I decide to start growing again

Don't waste your money on Land. That is pretty much rule number one for the game. Buy Tech.

Sigh. I was planning to let this thread sink under the weight of my rant, and start a new one if there was any WP business to discuss. At 60+ pages, it's getting hard to navigate.

I'm surprised that the two expired wars with NV are still coming up on the Search Wars page; it looks like they only purge the database after two months.

The wars on the global screen seem to be tied to your local war screen; if you delete it on the local one, then it disappears from the global, which is why the three wars against me are no longer there.

As for the thread, if you want to start a new one, as long as the friendly neighborhood mods are ok with it, so am I. I only use this one because it's there, I use "backwards" threads so long threads are no problem, and this forum has a tradition of epic threads

Aha! That explains it, thanks. I haven't looked at my local Wars & Battles screen since peace was declared. I've just been monitoring things with the recently added Search Wars button in the alliance box.

(Didn't notice this part when I wrote my last reply.) So do I, but it's tedious to refer a non-member to a particular post and say, "it's currently on either page 2 or page 59", since I don't remember which order the display defaults to when you're not logged in. I don't trust cut & paste of complicated URLs like these to actually link where I want them to.

Looks like PE Shang's nation is gone. He hasn't done anything with CN since mid December. I wonder what happened. I wonder if the flood up where he lived negatively affected his family in some way. I hope he and his family are well.

Well, first round of aid has gone out. $12 million sent out, couldn't send 15 because of some trade troubles, and had to buy a trade deal. Looks like I am about to lose another one, and a much more serious one (Fish/Wheat, +16% population, which is basically +16% income).

That's going to be much harder to replace, so I'm saving up collections now to make the 4k infra jump and get some more happiness improvements before I lose the trade, since it will take some time to find a replacement. I'll appear "inactive" for several days, while I build up tax collections to buy enough infrastructure to make up for the increased costs (looks like it's going to cost me $16 million).

I should still be able to regularly send out $3 million when my aid slots refresh though, it just might not be >$1 million/day.
