AFA's Got Game!

Day 1,833, 06:54 by FirstLaw

Anna would like you guys to vote and subscribe to this newspaper. It makes her happy. And anything that makes Anna happier makes my life a lot easier. You married guys know what I'm talking about. If you don't, then it's time to move out of your parent's basement.



Let's move on...

By now, you should already know that the American Freedom Alliance (AFA) has expanded their plurality in Congress to almost 33%. This means that roughly one third of the eUS government is under their control. That much should be obvious.

What isn't so obvious is how they've achieved it. There's truth to the claims that AFA has populated their party with foreign nationals (wasn't iNCi also a foreign party?), but that's only half of the truth.



The numbers below are a snapshot of party membership of each party in the past two consecutive Congressional elections. When looking at the numbers, another problem for the Unity Coalition comes into focus:




The obvious "problem" is that the AFA is the only party who's membership has increased over the past month. This translates into more votes during elections and increased influence. It's that simple. Drawing membership from foreign nationals obviously contributed to AFA's rising.

But why has membership in the other Unity Coalition parties declined? Where are the members going? Why can't the parties recruit new members? It's this writer's opinion that this is the most serious problem the Unity Coalition faces. Otherwise it's only a matter of time before AFA dominates.

That's free advice!

Smart feller right here.

USWP and WTP lost roughly 100 peeps each. Fwiw the WTP is actually tracking loses and investigating where we're losing members to. Only two of ours went to AFA, one result we found.

LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL

1st - it's OVER 33% not almost, maybe if unity clone votes wasn't deleted it would be under 33%
(Oh yes, Elites do everything they accuse us of...)

2nd - we did it because we are the voice of a silent majority
(Oh my God they are coming!... no we are already here!)

3rd - DEAL WITH IT!

You make a good point that we need to clean up our domestic house, however I do not agree with the title. They don't have "game". If we are losing people it is our own fault, not because they necessarily swayed opinion, they are the last alternative to people that are disgruntled.

It's just a catchy title, Bia. I'm hoping to build a readership.

If the api were working this would be easy to figure out. But we don't have that option. Thanks be to Plato.

It is only speculation but my money is on the loss of newer players. The admins have narrowed their market to those interested in battle numbers. I point to the recent '5 year' specials. All other facets of the game have been whittled back to nothing more than point and click chores. The media is having some impact because people like you persist in actually giving a shit.

When only gold buyers are attracted by the admins marketing tactics you will have little growth in other, more meaningful players. Those that do find their way here soon are bored and leave. Many mid term and even long term players are finding it hard to remain. Only those who find enjoyment outside of the game mechanics persist. That is those of us who use the game only as a reason to get together with on-line friends.

AFA is the hope for America to restore us to glory. Our elites have done more harm to our nation than anything AJ could of done, even if he is the monster they claim he is. Only crazy people would have gone to the extremes they have done for a personal grudge against a single player. They really think AJ is all that holds the other 800 people in a common cause.

I also believe that some of the loses can be traced to citizens returning to sixth parties or no party....
