Congress Results - Analysis
This is New Era's best ever result. More members, more voters, more allies and we equalled our best congressman count . I'm shocked that we came second with such an improvement!
As once more the UK become divided by two ways of playing eRepublik, the most vocal groups on either side have gained party members, votes and congressmen - with New Era and UKRP leading each "side".
Media War is a great way to boost your party and this time it has been started by UKRP; but it does an awful job of getting rid of the people you campaign against - giving their views lots of free publicity.
Those who have stayed quiet have lost members, congressmen and votes with ESO and OV suffering. Numerous new parties appearing are splintering from these parties as their neutral style leaves players cold and wanting more.
TUP made a shock return to 1st place after a long period of inactivity and weak leadership. They picked up the most non party voters but they also seem to have short changed UKRP by one congressman if you look at the membership share vs congressman share.
UKPP have done badly which I think is the result of their poor choice of Country President - an inactive and incompetent UKPP led Government had left a bad impression with the voters - even though few UKPP members are actually involved. In my opinion it is more of a traditinal/boring TUP/UKRP led government (look at Cabinet) They have been let down badly.
This is a computer game. Simple as that.
Please be wary of people claiming superior moral values and causing huge arguments over insignificant things. Remember that you can spin anything in a computer game as a real life bad thing.
We have parties who have or are bribing new players (TUP-UKRP-ESO), selling congress and president medals to poland (TUP), selling citizenship (TUP), importing voters (TUP), mass PMing parties to poach members (TUP), mass PMing parties to poach voters (UKRP), censoring free speech (TUP-UKRP), rigging contests (TUP), promoting their cronies (UKRP), stealing the treasury (UKRP), PTOing parties (UKRP)...
This is my Warcraft Character: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/frostwhisper/Dominara/statistic#128
I have murdered 124,470 real people, 47,752 of which were in game "children" and a lot of them will be real life children. So do I belong in prison or are these comparisons ridiculous?
I could tell the story behind each and every thing in that long list above, but actually I just want to say "that is fine - let's play the game and compete". So when you see these players splitting venom over similar things against myself or New Era, remember that they are doing the same or worse.
Send me a PM with a question and I'll be honest with that I do and why, but in the end you have to respect our right to play the game and agree to disagree. I would rather care and talk about things that actually mean something in this game, such as getting our players higher stats and our country some pride back.
PM me with your article to have it added or voted up - we are testing a new system to get party members to see your articles.
An extremly intelligently written and interesting article on the current Media War. Shockingly this is the first article by a Janurary 2013 player, there is great potential here!
A hard core UK reformer I've known for a long time now, previously known as Angela Williams. He is back from a trip abroad and will be trying to whip our Congressmen into shape this month; he has gotten off to a great start!
Sir Winston S Churchill
Our Secretary General (most experience points in party) with his take on our outstanding Congress results and a free giveaway!
The PP of WRP, they supported New Era for Congress and narrowly missed out on a Congressman. They produce great Congressmen and if I am PP next month I will guarantee them a Congressman.
