Advice Column - weasel2, 2/13
BEGINNING RULES by weasel2
As in all things eRep, subject to change.
Do not engage in gold/currency speculation unless you really understand what you are doing.
Yes, you can make money buying and selling currency, gold, RMs, weapons and food. It is not beyond your reach to really grasp how each market can be worked. However, there are many stories of people losing that game. Think through the transactions and the variables completely. Make sure the amounts you are making are worth your time. Don’t gamble, only invest knowingly.
Do watch for RMs at prices where you know you can sell them for more later.
Sometimes you see good deals. Be aware and do not fail to take advantage.
Lvl 26 to weasel2
I’m a USA citizen, but was an Aussie. The only place I can sell to is the Australian market. I must pay the import tax as well as the VAT and I only get AUD. I do not yet have 20 gold to buy a USA license.
weasel2 to Lvl 26
I definitely learned something new here. The only useful suggestion I have is to find someone who will (without gouging) buy your products for USD. The lower import and VAT taxes of the USA makes the products here cheaper, but gold is cheaper too.
Beginning Rules complete
Please PM your questions or put them in the comments. Can’t write an advice column without advisees, you know.
PTO Awareness Program - "PTO Examples" 2/20
PTO Awareness is brought to you by Gordy Browning
A PTO is a Political Take Over. A PTO can target a Political Party, Congress Seats and even the Country President position.
An infamous (well know) PTO’er in the eUS is General Cartman Lee (Also known as Ajay Bruno, Pizza the Hut, Pizza the Hut II and Pizza the Hut III) He tirelessly tries to recruit new people who do not know who he is and what he does.
PTO’s have been happening since the beginning of the new world. Enemies try to directly take control of another Alliance's countries so that they can strike a blow from within. For every PTO there is an ATO (Anti Take Over) A group of people from allied countries sent to that country to help stop PTO attempts.
Example- 2 PTO attempts on China:
Attempt at a political takeover in China.
A group of 20 people from Indonesia migrated to China, set up Liberal Party of China and won the general election in March 2008. The previous Chinese ruling party and Japan protested this. The government of Indonesia at first had no knowledge regarding this, however eventually Indonesia defended the movement. In the end the Admin banned most of members from Liberal Party of China in the April 2008 election without clear reason.
Political takeover in China.
A group of citizens from Pakistan followed a well-meaning user to China to take over a political party and then run for the general elections. The conspirators succeeded, and one of their members, Gyro Zeppeli, became President of China. He later declared war on Pakistan, possibly knowing that China would lose and Pakistan would gain the territory with no contest. The government of Pakistan supported and funded this operation.
eHistory Column - 1/29
by eHistorian J. C. Magan, eHST
"The USA-Canada War began on April 11, 2008, day 143 of the New World. It was the first major conflict in eRep."
The President of the USA (PotUS) was Nave Saikillah, and Canada’s was Faltnor. Both countries held some of the largest populations in the eWorld at the time. Faltnor was very inactive and weak, making few public appearances. With these factors combined, the USA saw this as an opportunity to test out its military strength for the first time. At first, the USA had the advantage as they took over many regions of Canada within the first day of the war. But Canada fought back, with blood.
It seemed that USA would overpower Canada, but many factors led to the eventual treaty between the two powerful nations. First was a group of freedom fighters who joined the Canadian side in search of fame and power, some even from the US soil. These extra forces were recruited by the Canadian military to their own advantage. The second factor was the bugs that existed during the BETA years. An imfamous bug was where a troop could constantly reuse their hospitals to regain 100 wellness, even though they were past their limit. This bug created a cease fire, as requested by the administrators, which lasted for about a week. Another known bug cause Canadians to fight against their own brothers in arms on Canadian soil. After this war, the war module went over a complete maintenance.
The final battle dawned after 15 days of blood, sweat, and tears. It was in Manitoba, April 26. From dawn till dusk soldiers fought for the final battle. The thing is, it wasn’t about who won the territory in the end, the mission statement at the beginning held strong; America wanted to test it’s military power. And did they ever. During the battle of Manitoba, President Nave Saikillah went into his arsenal of gold powered weapons. He consistently fought throughout the battle, successfully becoming the first tank in eRep history. Afterwords, being a tank in a battle would be called “pulling a Nave”.
But even with President Nave’s demonstration of power, Canada was still able to reclaim Manitoba, therefore regaining all of its original regions. A final peace talk was held between the two presidents, previous meetings only yielded unagreeable terms of surrender. With the help of John Wilkmot as a mediator, the two leaders were able to agree to a 3 month NAP, and Nave paid Canada 100 gold (initially this was a private matter, but word soon spread throughout both sides).
The USA-Canda War was one of the bloodiest wars in eRep history, but a conflict between the two nations will most likely never happen again, as USA and Canada are now bound by a Brolliance. A copy of the contract can be found in any archieves in USA and Canada.
