The Economist ~ Briefing: A ruckus down under!

Day 2,133, 04:02 Published in China Poland by Spite313



Dear friends,


Yesterday there was an epic battle going on in a normally quiet part of the world as eNZ and eAustralia made their bid for freedom from the occupying forces of eMKD. For me it was one of the most interesting battles I’ve seen in a long time - the costs and distances involved- especially during this time of expensive weapons and food - were significant. But I was very happy to see not only the big turnout, but the sense of unity and brotherhood we all displayed.


All the major UK military units sent as many as they could, along with forces from Poland, Serbia, Romania, Greece, Slovenia and other allies around the world- including South America. It was a great fight on both sides with CoT switching priorities when they needed between the two battles and finally dragging back eNZ to win overnight. I have to admit when I went to bed last night and NZ was winning by a decent margin I’d hoped to wake up to victory. I was disappointed that we had lost when we all put so much effort into the campaign, but what we can take from this as a positive is that feeling of co-operation and mutual support.


I’m not going to make this a long article, but one final thing:- For a long time the major commonwealth nations have found themselves on opposite sides. At one point Australia was EDEN aligned, Canada Asgard, NZ CoT, UK TWO and South Africa neutral. That’s almost impressive. Now we find ourselves in a position where all but Canada are broadly TWO aligned (either as members, or their interests lean that way). And let’s not count out Canada. Our countries share a deep common history, a language, a single underlying culture that it takes an outsider to recognise. As much as we love our European allies, cultural and linguistic barriers abound on both sides. It’s a nice opportunity for the commonwealth countries to grow together.


Thus I’ve made a channel: #ecommonwealth, for all people from erep countries associated with the RL commonwealth of nations (and friends) to come, chill out, make friends and even work together on plans and actions together. I’m hoping that the friendship and support we saw yesterday was merely the beginning.


Iain

Canada would rather be allied with the US than TWO:

you mean a few who could be arsed to take your survey (no doubt by those who support you anyway or are in your pocket) would like to be eUSA's bitch again. Funny how the media is full of those wary about CoT/eUSA...

Valiant Thor
Valiant Thor Day 2,133, 10:29

I've seen only you, the MI5 operative Leo Balzac and another insignificant player who's name I've forgotten, doing cheep agitprop in the media to change the overall opinion of the community. Maybe you need to try harder!

Leo Balzac
Leo Balzac Day 2,133, 10:58

Ah Thor, you need to stop meddling in my country's affairs.

WayneKerr
WayneKerr Day 2,133, 11:04

Maybe you wanna actually read peoples opinions. many of eCan are unhappy with being thrust into trial membership of CoT and a vast majority are unsure about the bromance returning. Seeing as the eCan's were abandoned by those they considered allies, i understand why they should be wary....

Valiant Thor
Valiant Thor Day 2,133, 11:45

The recent survey says something different.
And Leo, what do you mean by "my country"???
Wouldn't the expression "our country" be more appropriate?

WayneKerr
WayneKerr Day 2,133, 12:30

The 'recent survey' is a farce. 40 odd people replied, it would be interesting to see who voted. Those that voted in favour of eUSA and CoT will be those in the pocket of DMV or those that already support him.

Those able to think for themselves can see that remaining neutral for the time being, is the way forward for eCan. Being railroaded in a friendship with CoT and eUSA could be very damaging for the community.

Leo Balzac
Leo Balzac Day 2,133, 12:49

Not while you still hold eUS CS bro. You want to call it 'yours' you should return to it.

Valiant Thor
Valiant Thor Day 2,133, 15:19

Huh, you didn't get it!
It does not have anything to do with me!

When you write "my country" then I get the picture of a typical egocentric person who identifies his goals with those of his country and wants to force his will on others.
When a person uses the word "ours", then he identifies with the community, therefor tends to works for the greater good.

Thank you for showing us, even unconsciously, what kind of person you are.

We will not be silenced

Mixing RL and eRep is childish.
And the country's name is New Serbland!

WayneKerr
WayneKerr Day 2,133, 10:18

says the guy who wants a strong relationship between eCan and eUSA...

Valiant Thor
Valiant Thor Day 2,133, 10:21

Surely not because of RL, but because of strong ties between our two communities.

Leo Balzac
Leo Balzac Day 2,133, 10:59

Ties that are sentimental only. Fair weather friends is what the eUS is. eCanada is ready for a new dance partner.

WayneKerr
WayneKerr Day 2,133, 11:01

... and we Brits are fond of the tango...

Valiant Thor
Valiant Thor Day 2,133, 11:41

Unfortunately for you, you belong to a minority. But how about dancing with your Serbian overlords in TWO? Regretfully they don't like to tango but are good in stepping on their partners feet!

WayneKerr
WayneKerr Day 2,133, 12:26

We find, that contrary to popular believe, the Serbs do indeed posses a thing called rhythm.

You know where you stand with Serbia. eUSA on the other hand is a different kettle of fish. You guys have a rich history of being poor allies.

Valiant Thor
Valiant Thor Day 2,133, 15:36

Serbian disrespect for weaker partners in TWO is common knowledge! The even tried to impose a new voting system in TWO HQ, where the "big" countries like themselves wold have 3 votes, those with less damage like the UK 1 vote. That is a perfect example of their mindset.
Another is also seen recently: their bonuses are priority No.1; Slovenia and Hungary can bleed to death, Montenegro loose congress - they won't care. They will rather waste their damage to help India wipe Bosnia then to assist their allies in critical battles!

Dear Leo and Wayne, it's nice to see that your masks have fallen, so that everyone may see your true affiliation. Even your motives can now be easily guessed!

Always liked the idea, will keep pushing for it. Would like to see eIreland in there to, one day....

Sal T. Balls Day 2,134, 01:13

Yes, our countries may share a deep common history.

Unfortunately they don't share the same enemies and that's the only way alliances are made in a game of war.

Tim_Holtz
Tim_Holtz Day 2,134, 07:52

what is the reason Spain and Canada are enemies? that would be Cattle.

the same resource USA has in abundance.

its not a stretch to say spain could get a cattle region from USA then have no need to worry about occupying Canada anymore, thus making a need for Canada to be buds with CoT irrelevant.

thus paving the way for Canada to join all its commonwealth buddies

Sal T. Balls
Sal T. Balls Day 2,134, 09:30

it's not a stretch, no. But why would eSpain antagonize a nation that could hold its own when there's a neighbour that can't defend itself and - clearly - no other super power gives two sh*ts about?...

Tim_Holtz
Tim_Holtz Day 2,134, 09:39

because spain can hit 2 birds with 1 stone, atm spain needs aluminium and cattle, USA has both.

this frees up portugal and canada. (not azores for linking purposes)

that turns both canada and portugal into countries that dont have an interest in actively fighting spain. meaning they can focus attention on 1 country instead of 2. sure USA is stronger but with poland around its still fairly easy.
