Reshuffling the cards: Everything's on the table.

Day 1,867, 21:14 by Candor


UPDATE: The Executive Round Table has begun deliberations on the future of the nation. Never mind the mess, our new diggs are being readied.

So far, Ireland is the ante, and at least one Representative has doubled down on CoT.

We expect the game to be joined as the evening progresses, and the stakes to rise. This will be a late night for all involved. But have no fear, so long as the gin keeps flowing, and the Vice Cops leave us alone, we shall have a new line up of new, and old, allies by morning.



We've hired security to keep out the trouble makers.

Wish us luck.

Maybe with some team change ups, mix ups, match ups, whatever! the New Year will bring some fresh new life to this game. Let's hope. o7

A round table of executive decision makers? Way to add to the elitism Candor.

Go TT Paul Proteus Malpazar, he speaks for the Feds at the ERT, and will pass along your opinions.

Candor is an elitist who wants to keep the minorities down, a traitor who has sold out his country to the highest bidder, and an all-around great guy.

Another level 29 Erepublik player, like Fingerguns. It makes you wonder, is five minutes daily of playing erepublik enough to become president of America?

Candor
Candor Day 1,868, 04:29

^^^ Yes, in America we sacrifice only our youth to the vices of government. Our old men must fight for their daily bread. And our women, we eat.

Nova Roma is the only way to save this "game" The Legion will burn the barbarians in the endless snow. The fire will sooth our burns. Publicly support Nova Roma's founding document the Lex Publius Sarius before it is too late

Hey I'm no two clicker.

I was dead for 2 years.

In fact, it is exactly a qualification that fingerguns was edead for two years. Think of all the BS she has avoided. She is the perfect combination of fresh new perspective and aged experience.

fingerguns
fingerguns Day 1,868, 13:34

Yeah, pretty much. I see it as an advantage. I'm not burned out and I'm not weighed down by stale old grudges. I'm completely interested in the future, not trying to recreate or avenge the past.

What do you have against 2-clickers, Zooey? They make up the electorate in eRep? They are those new players you claim to care about. Granted, its misguided concern as we all know that the attrition rate in eRep is laughable. That said, go ahead and piss on them all you want.

I know this is supposed to be about Candor, but I do have a question for you that I'm sure many people here are wondering:

Why did you come back? I don't mean that to sound flippant. The game sucked 2 years ago, it sucks today. Nothing changed over the 2 years. You didn't miss any of the "old grudges" and you've done a pretty good job of stirring up many of your own. The game didn't get any better. Sure, there are some cool people here, but, when you quit, you decided that the cool people weren't enough of a reason to stay? So, why come back? What is it about this time that has been different? Did you change? I mean, apart from the extra pounds and a couple more cats. Is this a new found need for attention? Maybe you're nothing more than a cute new Avatar and a bus pass good for unlimited rides on the "AFA sucks" bandwagon?

You may not like Candor or Jay as they are, how did you put it, "Burnt out" , "dripping with butthurt" "balls deep in drama for the last three years" but they have stuck it out and have stayed honest and above the fray. I don't see them calling you out for being balls deep in litter boxes and haagen daz.

Its clear that you thrive on attention, drama, and conflict. Don't pretend to be above it, and certainly, try to show a little respect to people with contrasting opinions.

Just wow.

@ mccvii : Respect!!!

Wow!

Jefferson Locke
Jefferson Locke Day 1,869, 12:13

@mccvii........above the fray? Surely you were being sarcastic. I mean, seriously.

And it probably would help if the "above the fray" comment wasn't preceded by a paragraph that basically said she was an old cat lady. Way to stay above the fray!

I lol'd too JJ, I guess just for a different reason.

Simulare
Simulare Day 1,869, 14:17

haha. the difference is that I don't give a crap about eRep, its politics, or, most of its players. OK, perhaps the cat lady comment might be poor form in certain circumstances, but this is eRepublik. Hell, that's almost a complement around here.

Regardless of opinions on whether or not I'm an asshole, my point was made. FG is just another in a series of eRep attention whores who seek the respect and admiration of a collection of hollow avatars. Is that really who we've come to support and honor?

fingerguns
fingerguns Day 1,869, 14:28

I got married and started a new company.

Things have settled down, so I came back to visit the Feds and the sucked me back into the game by asking me for some help.

That's about it.

Congratulations to all of those who 'stuck it out' and keep playing even though they're absolutely miserable. Medals, all around.

Jefferson Locke
Jefferson Locke Day 1,869, 14:47

If you don't take it seriously mccvii, then why do you care? Why are you making it personal? And who's the attention whore? I would argue it's the one that write's comments in four paragraph format. You seem to care a great deal for someone who says you don't give a crap.

My point is simple: You wanna disagree, go for it. But making it personal is honestly lame, and then having two people that you list as "above the fray" gloat over your comment basically destroys your argument about them "staying above the fray".

"Congratulations to all of those who 'stuck it out' and keep playing even though they're absolutely miserable."

Not to add to this "fray"....but the JD is NOT miserable

fingerguns
fingerguns Day 1,869, 16:24

Then I wasn't referring to you.

mccvii can only not criticize something when it's a way to criticize something else. At least people like fingerguns, Candor, and John_Jay aren't here to be bitter do-nothings who can only complain.

Misery loves company. Maybe not attention, but thrive on "drama and conflict"? pretty sure that's always been you mccvii, especially if you throw cynicism in there. Feel free to prove otherwise any time.

Anyway gl with everything Candor.
