The old superpowers, are carried in their behind by players with years of experience in this game, but which lost interest and look at the game not from a fun, creative way, but from a duty way. Some of them already renounced, others cannot stand the feeling of guilt, of abandoning the country and still fly around.
“That simply - to me - isn't the way you manage a game. I'm not here to share my cynical attitude towards this game, but my view on how destroyed this once masterpiece is. The veterans - all gone. The majestic players - their accounts sold. You make me feel like I'm playing a game that has more or less lost its beat. Just one click and it's all gone, but I guess I'm still not - yet - doing it. I like to write articles, they make me feel like part of this game, and I still hope, hope for better days, hope for long forgotten places in our minds when once dominance and brilliance ruled this game. I hope for things once discovered and then yet again forgotten” Ice Killa, Slovenia
The words written by Ice Killa, explain the best how the old players left, and what motivation had others to remain. But, this is not the game I knew anymore for me too. Once I was able to use so much creativity, that I even invented my own administrative system of a country. But that was possible only because people we’re interested to see to what extents they can develop something imaginary. This is dead now everywhere in the world, except one place that defies all rules, and fights to keep this game alive.
We all knew that Turkey was the only country that didn’t like the old same fights, EDEN vs ONE. So their leaders decided to stir up a little the energy in the world, by creating a totally new conflict. The old Bulgaria-Turkey conflict was just a cover-up for the real fight. The real fight it is between Bulgaria and Greece, and of course from here Bulgaria-Romania and Bulgaria-Croatia.
By planting the seed of hate, into people, chaos grown big and a new WORLD WAR has started.
But, again let’s look at the big picture, there is a country that rides the waves of the new world war, and brings thousands of new players into the e-world, daily. This country is the same country that started up this war that invented it from scratch.
You may think that resources are the most important thing when you fight a war. You cannot be more wrong. You forget who the king in here is, and who the pion is. The king is the everyday player which gives time out of his real-life to invest in this game. And Turkish leaders seen this opportunity and used it for their advantage. Resources come and go, but citizens once settled may never leave.
“Of the 10 articles, on the first page of the American Top News page, only 3 of them have anything to do with America. Now, that isn’t a huge problem in of itself. We’re a tolerant group of people, and should have no problems with foreign media. But, when 70% of the articles have nothing to do with the country, it does create a problem for new players. When there are articles in Bulgarian, and Turkish in the top section of the media, it can be hard for a new player to truly grasp what is going on. How can a new citizen learn anything, when only 30% of the articles are even remotely related to the United States?
Is 100/100 really worth it? We place ourselves in jeopardy every day, as more and more people come to our country for economic reasons. We’ve already seen China close their borders, in an attempt to regulate the flow of immigrants. America will always be a target of PTOers, that’s just how it is. But adding in 100/100 does not make defending the nation any easier.” Israel Stevens, USA
From these lines, written by second-in-presidential-elections, Israel Stevens, we see the bad effects of having 100% resources. Their own community is affected by the in-flow of immigrants, and this can have effects on long-term because it affects their own source of life, American newcomers.
Again we can see, why Turkey decided to renounce on having 100% resources for the sake of getting newcomers, and protecting them from refuges of other countries.

Japan President, Chise E.Tamai
1. “I would say most of our citizens are neutral; the Bulgaria Turkey conflict had not yet have any direct influence on us, and eJapan itself doesn't have much power or energy to get itself into more conflicts. Personally, I lean towards to - well, not really Turkey or Bulgaria, but Croatia, as Croatians had been pretty helpful in trying to bring peace to Japan with Taiwan”
2. “I hope it stays stable, because eJapan can afford no more conflict.”
3. “"Joining" a new alliance maybe possible depending on who's in, as eJapan is constantly seeking for friendship, as long as it does not cause more problem with us with Taiwan. "Forming" is not in consideration now.”
Lithuania President, Dariukas
1. Well, for now we seek to help our allies becouse there are no treaths to us directly. So now we can focus on allie battles. For instance Estonia - Finland.
2. Our closest friends are Latvia and Estonia. But I must allso mention most of the ONE countries.
3. Hard question. I suppose I would hate to have all neighboring states in same alliance, becouse that way we wouldn`t have who to attack.
4. I wish you and whole world lots of fun playing this game!

As you know, in polish congress, a law proposal was subjected to vote, which giving Republic of Moldova a "natural enemy" status. This law proposal is result of goverment mistake and it was immediately corrected. It was supported by many congress members, but we decided to take another military steps, therefore this law will be rejected.
We would like to apologize to the allies for the incident, which provoked a violent reaction, especially the Macedonians and Bulgarians, who have to deal with the attack Greece and Romania.
Obviously, Congress Members has got an official, last instruction to vote NO. Furthermore, we kindly ask you not to blame our Congress Members, because they have discharged their duties as well as they could. Our mistake will be soon redressed by devastating attack on Romania in order to help our Macedonian, Bulgarian and Hungarian friends to get rid of them.
