Good morning, pupils,
Today we’re going to learn a bit about the etiquette of dealing with your friends and about how to get what we want from allies, with Polish and ONE HQ experts as our guests during the Poland vs Sweden negotiations about German territories.
The first step is to immediately begin passing a Natural Enemy law against the other party. This sends the clear signal to your friends that you would like very much for them to give you everything they have. It also gently reminds them (in case it had slipped anyone’s mind!) that resources are infinitely more important than your friendships
Now the alliance HQ will have to act as mediators, in a super secret meeting between all parties concerned. When you enter the discussion room, feel free to skip any greetings: they are not important when you’re good friends with a long history of cooperation and from the same alliance, like Sweden and Poland. However, it shows good manners to make some sort of smalltalk, as shown in this example:
21:14 Last_Straw • lonestar is online?
21:14 Lonestar • yea
21:14 Last_Straw • Lonestar, u are a girl?
It is super effective!
21:15 Lonestar › goes back to playing swtor
If you manage to repair the situation and begin the serious talk, remember to clearly state your intentions.
21:15 Last_Straw • its important to continue our negotiating
21:16 Last_Straw • ok, back to germany. As u know, we want to conquer our... territory . We need 2way tunnel.
21:16 Last_Straw • we need bab and saxony
21:18 Last_Straw • cause it will 2way tunnel.
Remember, stating your intention only once doesn’t work, you need to repeat it with appropriate reasoning (like mentioned above).
But even the best of us gets angry from time to time... Remember to express your anger in a polite tone. Sometimes foreigners are a little bit slow to understand how desperately you WANT what they have, so swear, curse, shout and threaten to overcome the linguistic and cultural differences.
[21:36] <Last_Straw> You f**k about ManiekM, but when we wanted to cows from you aldo f****d us.
[21:37] <Jegarmister> i dont like your tone last
[21:37] <Lemlin> so, take our cows then
[21:37] <Lonestar> Is this polish diplomacy again?
However annoyed that you might be with your ally for not immediately giving you exactly what you demanded and being grateful to you for not wiping them, never let them know that you are annoyed. Be calm!
22:20 Lonestar • Yea, with Polish Diplomacy, anything is possible, and i really mean, ANYTHING
22:20 Lonestar •
22:21 Lonestar • All hail Polish Diplomacy!
22:21 Lonestar • Just send in Last_Straw and you will have ATLANTIS back and kicking within a day or two
22:22 Last_Straw • Another moment of such a tone from your site Lonestar and say goodbye to the regions of our native territory (Germany)
<PierreDzoncy> we say something clearly
<PierreDzoncy> no f****n place for sweden in germany
<PierreDzoncy> after all this
<PierreDzoncy> it was poland who took hardest damage to save congresses
<PierreDzoncy> and in exchange we got only
<PierreDzoncy> f**k you, we wont let you pass to bonuses
<PierreDzoncy> "you treat bonuses more important than allies etc"
<PierreDzoncy> i wont allow one region pass
<PierreDzoncy> no f****n way
<PierreDzoncy> now not even 2 region
<PierreDzoncy> but whole
<PierreDzoncy> i dont want to see sweden in germany
Now, in the case of the HQ, you will probably see both sides of the story, and in complex diplomatic situations like this, both sides will probably have put forward equally compelling cases. But fear not: there is ALWAYS a solution. To find out which side is in the right, simply check the API to see which country is stronger.
<PierreDzoncy> no region in germany
<PierreDzoncy> you can take denmark
<PierreDzoncy> i dont care
<PierreDzoncy> but after all this i wont allow sweden in germany
<PierreDzoncy> at any cost
<Jegarmister> ok then it's setteled
<Cookies_Crisp> PierreDzoncy ok , but the hostilities MUST be stopped
<@strider_gospodar> We will guarantie that this passes...
<@SGiddy> we have an agreement
Problem solved. Sorry Sweden!
