A noobs perspective

Day 1,849, 08:50 by bananaboy378

I haven’t produced many articles, and most people will just say I’m a noob and ignore, but meh...

So yeah...

Why UK will never prosper - a noobs story

Now, i have been 2-clicking for some time, lurking in IRC chans and sifting through the forums, and i have come to the conclusion, that the UK is currently in a vicious cycle wherein we will currently never break.

The one reason the UK will never reach it's pinnacle is the hate currently being tossed about the country. All sides have, in the past, committed some act that is inexcusable to the others, and i can understand this, and constructive criticism is always good input; however, it has gone more than that, it has become destructive, wherein players have quit the game because of some individuals trying to put them down, thus propelling them to higher power though non-honest means.

How do you think it looks to other countries, when we cannot even unite for a common goal, do you believe that they would want to try to unite with us to a common goal.

As a country, we need to be able to 'start afresh'. No i do not believe we should live in a land of unicorns, rainbows and dancing fairies were we all get along, but we need a way to mutually exist, and work towards the benefit of the UK.

Away, not many people will read this so im probably just ranting at air, so anyway, bananaboy signing out.

Good point's raised here , being 5 months , I entered a war field and never found the eUK a great place to be , the trolling , belittling as king said the other day , it's not nice , I have had a lot of abuse directed at me but that only makes me stronger in my quest for a New Era , I would like to see fresh start for all sides .

And comment's like that from a old player like you proves the point , I can never take anyone serious who spends there time making pointless object's on minecrafting just to show off to people for them to say oh that's good , Tell me the point you're trying to make here Applebum as I now believe it people like you who have ruined this country

If you are not the solution you're the problem !

To be fair Minecrafting its all sides and this was happening a long time before myself or Don even joined the game. You have Keers and Lord Lewis constantly targeting people on the forums and this gets passed on. First few months I stayed out of all the bitching until I repeatedly got dragged into it and though ''f*ck it why should I stay silent and accept all the abuse?''

So I don't anymore.

Dr Hugh Jardon
Dr Hugh Jardon Day 1,849, 09:40

This country will never change whilst old players like LLC, Keers, Moir and co think us newer players have no devine right to a point of view because it does not tally with theirs.

I for one am willing to change. I just wish that the "other side" would negotiate and compromise just a little bit. Because they will not bend, then we are being forced to break them. You can see this in the unprecedented party ranking and congress share changes happening right now.

I can see the light at the end of the tunnel though and I hope you will stick around to see it!

This is what i am talking about. I make a article about people hating too much and needing to stop, and people start hating.

Hello? That's insulting horice.

I realized the same positivity of Dan , iain, ... EVEN sooner than Hugh. I LOVE those crow adorers.

Blah blah blah

Stop using TUP as your constant excuse for being useless. The "opposition" is the government now, and you're doing a crap job. Go focus on actually doing something rather than whining on some poor guys comments.

I have a solution. Donate gold to me and I will provide you with unicorns, rainbows and dancing fairies

I thought this argument about new players not being given opportunities was resolved. There are now more active young players, even in TUP. We have won, New Era and UKPP are in power. Stop dragging up old arguments, we're all in this together, for the greater good of Euk.

Bring on the unicorns, rainbows and dancing fairies

Stop using TUP as your constant excuse for being useless. The "opposition" is the government now, and you're doing a crap job. , I think you missed the point of the story here chum ! Crap Job they been in power a few days to you're parties years in power !You are one of problem Keers

Keers at his best , You Mr Keers have ruined this country I put the blame at your feet, where is the factories ? where are the companies ? did you build for the future NO, do you only think about yourself YES

I'm sure those evil heartless TUP people can bail the country out financially in a few months (again)

The country should be self sufficient after 4 years but you have put the country in a weak situation, for your own gain , never thinking about the future just you're on hold on power , wake up to the fact you have done a rubbish job

Commander Dapper
Commander Dapper Day 1,850, 02:05

You have create a nasty society , full of trolls and back biting , plotting and trying to belittle people , why do you think you have a god driven right to control the eUK? you have done a very bad job, Most of the world knows you have be two face to other counties and you have made us have a bad rep, The forums and eUK channel all has to be removed from you guys for us to start again and make this country great not the shell it is now Shame on Keers Shame on your Party Shame on the Trolls

Sarcean Day 1,850, 02:32

Again... the hating appears on an article that highlights this kind of thing is stifling our country. We see it in RL when politicians attack each other and look at the benefits in RL, there are none... it is the same here. We all have to get along to push this country forward.

myheadstone Day 1,850, 04:05

I have noticed a change of neg comments. I can understand it during election time but as many of you had noticed the last one was a very clean election with points of view being made without many neg comments. We at WRP have realised that a more open gov and congress can go a long way to make new players want to carry on and find out what EREP is all about.New Era and to a less extent UKPP are also letting others know that there are still nice people who are here, you just have to find them.

Nathan Lloyd

this is exactly the same reason i quit eAustralia and came here. they made 1 quit the game ruined political careers of many more and destroyed a party just by making out they were PTO'ers . i hope it aint that bad here otherwise im going to eIndia.

Spygon Day 1,850, 06:27

Both sides are so hostile one joking comment turns into a total flame war it is getting riduclous.

Alot of members of the euk politics are so aggressive against each other over the most stupid of things and when someone mentions this is destorying euk they say they agree then agressively try and blame the other side for it.

If people stopped fighting each other for stupid political points and actually worked together the euk might actually be in a better situation ,

The early comments under this article, by the usual suspects, merely prove the authors point. Some people need to learn to see beyond the end of their own noses. TUP is no longer the largest party, by some margin. The President is from the UKPP. Most of the cabinet is from UKPP/New Era and their allies. Yet, it's as if the 'new elite' have failed to grasp that they are no longer the opposition. The same old arguments of 'oppression' etc being used, trapped in their bubbles of 'victimhood'

Interesting that it was about everyone getting along and you get post after post of nonsense. Way to illustrate bananaboy's point.

Elvis Trout
Elvis Trout Day 1,850, 16:24

Dapper, I don't know why I am bothering to take the time and respond to you, because you spout so much nonsense. But how exactly is Keers offering to bail out the whole country selfish? And it is not his fault, if you were capable of reading you would have realised that the thread is about the damaging effects BigAnts tax cuts will have.

Great article, comments are a great example of what is wrong

surferdude Day 1,850, 16:30

I completely agree, this is the stance of the New Era Party. Unity for the better of the UK.
Personally, I like the name Great Britain better though.

GameChanger Day 1,850, 16:40

I find it very ironic that an article meant to heal our divisions has turned into a crap slinging contest in te comments.

You guys ought to feel ashamed of yourselves

Nobody likes to be wrong, but EVERYBODY is at some time in some way. The sooner there is a bit of laissez-faire going about, the better everything will go along.

Anybody know who said this? By the way, it WASN'T Voltaire.
