Novum Politicum
Day 1,878 of the New World
10 January, 2012
eRepublik is an equal playing field.

It is a rubber-walled romper room where old men, young women, hare-brained-crazies, drug-addicted convicts, and your mother all grapple with the same limitations and possibilities.

And so it is never a surprise when a completely stark-raving-mad lunatic (who is also a really big jerk) gains enough power in this game to actually begin spoiling it for everyone else.

That’s started to happen here in eUSA where a desperation for self-aggrandizement has sent once crazy retard into the hands of eUSA’s worst enemies. This pusillanimous pudwhack, together with his legion of PTO-hungry-serbots has cast a turgid pall over the landscape of eUSA.

Here is a short list of some of the things ruined by America’s Freeky A**holes:

Now we have “unity elections”.
This crap smells. Parties no longer function as a base of power for politically hopeful individuals. Because the threat of PTO outweighs ALL OTHER CONCERNS (and it does), National elections are decided by a few power brokers instead of allowing for the organic unfolding of competitive political influence to shape an election. Even though our public enemy #1 complains about this same fact, it is he himself who has brought it upon us.

Now we have lousy bonuses.
This is another pile of stink. Because these Freedom-Haters continue to grant eUSA Citizenship to more and more of our enemies, we are forced into the horrible decision of having to make eUSA Citizenship something nobody would want. How? By throwing away the only game mechanic that offers any real economic advantage, Region Bonuses. Even though our public enemy #1 complains about this same fact, it is he himself who has brought it upon us.

Our Military strength serves no real purpose
This is a third giant turd. It used to be that we would fight desperate battles against equally desperate enemies in an effort to gain and hold 100/100 bonuses and/or in effort to strip our enemies of their bonuses. This forced us all to learn how the eRep map works, how game mechanics work, and it gave us a reason to hit that ugly FIGHT button. But sadly our biggest enemy is now within our borders, so the FIGHT button is useless in our most meaningful battle. I am sure most of eUSA is tired of moving to fight, of not having any eUSA battles for True Patriot gold (which must be killing our Newb growth), and is generally BORED with the only aspect in this game that offers us true growth. Even though our public enemy #1 complains about this same fact, it is he himself who has brought it upon us.

We have become an uninteresting ally in the global community.
This is an entire back yard filled with a month’s worth of un-cleaned-up dog poo. In times past, eUSA was a desirable ally. Nations would court our favor because we had a lot to offer. Regardless of what drama might be unfolding within our borders, we were secure enough to be able to extend our energies outward to assist another Nation when the cause was just and the timing was right. eUSA has been the kingpin in numerous military, political, and economic overseas operations. But lately? Because all of our energy is focused internally we just don’t have much to spare for anyone else. Brother can you spare a dime? Um… no. It shouldn’t surprise anyone that our Public Enemy #1 doesn’t even give a crap about this loss to eUSA’s dignity and glory… all he cares about is himself.

But there is one thing left in eRepublik which gives eUSA a decided advantage over her bane. And it has to do with my opening thought, “eRepublik is an equal playing field.” This means that every person counts as 1 – for our enemy as well as for ourselves.

Just as AFA has had to build itself CS request by CS request (and multi by multi), we too build the resistance one loyal citizen at a time.

And we have all the advantages. We have a head start. We already have a slim edge in size. We are not lead by a deranged looney. And most of all… we are fighting to defend our home.

Only one thing will finally oust the cancer that is within us.
Vastly Superior Unified Numbers.

If we were fighting against eSerbia on the battlefield, the key to victory would be a proliferation of Q7 tanks, Energy Bars, and masses of clickers in all four Divisions, all clicking FIGHT against the same enemy.

But we are not fighting against eSerbia. We are fighting against ePsychopathguy and his proxy-logging serbots. And so what we must do if we ever want eUSA Citizenship to equate with FUN again is to unify against the AFA en masse.

There is a movement afoot that is (in addition to being hastily misjudged) promising to unify the common-sensified population against the seedy seditionists sidling slimily up side-by-side with us.


They are not asking you to leave your party.
They are not asking you to abandon your independence.
They are not asking you to submit to any god or person.

They simply want your agreement that the only true threat to our sovereignty is the one attempting to seize it from within.

SPQR historically was a tenuous balance of factions which had no particular love for one another, but who recognized that the survival of Roma was a duty which bound them in purpose.

(e)SPQR now must also become a tenuous balance of factions which need no particular love for one another (when was the last time you saw Oblige and Inwegen agree about ANYTHING!?!?), but who must recognize that by unifying our number, we so vastly outsource our wretched enemy that a new day will soon dawn. And in the Nova Roma, eRepublik will once again be the fun game which bound us together in the first place.

SPQR IN OUR MINDS,
SPQR IN OUR HEARTS,
NOW AND FOREVER!

The concept that is being put forth currently is all shiny, but is there any substance to the product or is it just another way to package the same 'Flufferist' mentality. They have called for Unity over and over, America has unified and elected the 'chosen' candidate over and over; what America has gotten in return is urinated on over and over.

Nothing being presented in this new package is actually new, even their slogan is a ripoff of a long dead Empire; one destroyed by it's acceptance of religion in government.They reach back in eRepublik History and worship a long dead god, a god based on a FN game; foisted upon America by the same zealots who said religion would never work in a game.

Nothing will change in America until the backroom power mongers are turned out, blame RGR and the AFA all you want it was the immature back stabbing politics of the 'Fanatical Flufferist Faction' that brought us to this point.

LoL.

You are obsessed with me. Seek help.

Reading these articles are the only time the thought of you ever enters my mind.

You can blame the victims all you want, doesn't change the fact that you and your cronies are inept.

It's our country too

This article seems to be aimed against my Party in addition to being about the new SPQR.

SPQR sounds interesting if it is a genuine political movement. I fear that my party would crumble fairly easily, unfortunately, because our Forums are really very empty compared with our size. I guess this means that most of our members are not really watching? I don't know.


Someone please tell me, how did my party (AFA) do all these bad things?

@Power, the AFA was built on multis to provide Ajay a power base, but now that he is close to winning an election the powers that be that set him up (in power and too abuse him) are about to pull the rug out from under him and take the AFA from him and use the AFA to elect a well positioned elitest. And when Ajay starts ranting the elitest will start laughing and tell us, wasn't it all so fun and look how well organized we all are now...fudge SPOR, it has been a set up all along....

Shiny bubbles in the wine or can we expect a substantive pinot noir? Perhaps an '08 or is it an '09.

Honestly, I'll agree with a few point, like the fact that the unity election is the AFA fault and that the process is shitty. GRANTED.

But saying that AFA is responsible for our unreliability as an ally. We made that on our own thanks to shitty FA stance.

Simulare
Simulare Day 1,880, 11:16

lol. because that will solve all those problems. eRep sucks for all the reasons you've mentioned. But, is the real game so poor that we have to invent make-believe content to fill in the gaps.

"SPQR historically was a tenuous balance of factions which had no particular love for one another, but who recognized that the survival of Roma was a duty which bound them in purpose."

Thank God you're not in a position to educate people. SPQR was nothing more than propaganda that could be branded on standards. At the heart of "the senate and the people or rome" was the Emperor. It wasn't people "working together for the greater good" it was, "do what the emperor and the elites say says or else". And, the emperor was essentially treated like a God.. right up until the time that members of the elite society decided that they no longer wanted him around - at which point, the kings own guards would generally see that he fell off his horse, drowned in the baths, ate a bad piece of meat, maybe fell on a dagger a couple dozen times... You get the idea.

If you really want to emulate the Roman Empire, you might as well embrace Ajay as your emperor. Based on what you guys say about him, he seems to fit the general description of a corrupt Roman Emperor.

OK, reality off, proceed with pretending.

What would you have us do? Should we fight until the end of time over some nameless great plain in the never ending battles over Balkan tribal pissing grounds?

Relax, everyone. The real result of all this will be the server shutting down and then this psychdrama BS will end.
No one in their right mind is buying any gold on this deranged server. And with no gold means they will pull the plug and start over again with a new server. That is what happens in these on-line games when one person or a small group of people break the rules and the admins are unable to keep them from doing so. By creating multiple worlds, you neuter the pocketbooks of the insane.

I give it until the end of the year, and then expect to get the "A new world has begun" message.
