What we do in life echoes in eternity

Day 2,008, 09:18 by Master Lobban Le Rub Klitoris
Edit: thank you all for all your help financially! I did not ask for it but I really appreciate it and the gesture, it is much more than I could have expected.

Not to many should care but I have decided to write an article about recent events, I should have wrote one for Unkem and Internet Republik those many months ago but things happen.



I was recently temporarily banned for use of multi accounts. I came into this game with the mind set I go into every game with, use any means necessary to achieve victory. Victory for me was of the political kind, it is the only reason I have played for so long, the military and economic ones do not interest me much. I used multies to further my ambitions in the political arena. Some people say that I was such a bad person for using mutlis but in a game (especially a browser one) I think it is good to break the rules. The rules for me in a game are meant to be broken, it is the job of the games maker to enforce them and if they cant catch the rule breaker than good job to them. I know quite a few people multi in this game, in fact some of the highest members of some eGovernments (cough USA cough) encourage multi account use. The problem with me is that I had used my multis in elections. If you do not use your multis in elections than you have a very good chance of going undetectable. To bad for for me that I do not have enough patience and I;m tempted to use multies to get in positions in political power.

This game is so dull that I needed to make my own fun and when you have multies and you like the political mode then things can get interesting. I have used accounts to elect others as PP's, congress, and even a CP (not in eCan though). I did this cause I found it to be amusing.

I may be in the eyes of a people just a cheat and someone who needs to just wither away but I'm sure I also bring you some enjoyment in trolling and trying to belittle me. We all need entertainment, especially eCanada right now, and I was happy to provide it to all of you fine folk.

My accounts in eCan have been banned and I have no intention of creating anymore. It is interesting that I was temporarily banned when I was since these past few days have been humbling for me in real life and I did not care in the slightest that I had got banned; it showed me what this game is, insignificant. In fact I find it rather telling what kind of place we live in were the rules are bent so unfairly just because a player has spent money on the game (wow a whole $13 for that weapon package). In a way this disgusts me, even more so because they took away all my gold and put me at -98320CAD in what I see as a attempt to get me to buy gold to get out of the debt they put me in, but I will not (looks like I will be stuck in Alaska for awhile).

As I said, I try to take advantage of any weakness in a game to win it, yet I have never played a social game like this one before were winning seems to in the friends you make, not the medals you get (a little sappy?);furthermore it seems that in this type of game the punishment comes more from the fellow players than from the philosopher. I'm happy that I have made a few friends in this game, granted I have made a lot more enemies, those who have worked close with me either seem to take a strong dislike to me or find that they can tolerate me, and then you have the others who have never worked with me just like to troll :D . I was quite surprised to find an article that Foxfire wrote and I was impressed and entertained. Foxfire is one of the best people to know in this game and I thank him for giving me a chance(s)to get to know him.

I did not run for PP of Clan Wolf to hurt it (though that seems to be what I have done), I wanted to change it into something I thought would make it better. Oinyo told me that he was happy as long as I did not ruin Clan Wolf, and I do not like to break promises to people who bought me lunch and a 32oz beer, so I will do what he (and the rest of the Clan) thinks is best.

I have reached a turning point in this game and if I do not get perma banned by this article than I will be playing the game a lot differently.
(if you want to ask me a question send me a PM, I doubt I will even look at the comment section of this article)

tl:dr , this game is dull, needs entertainment



a little less Strength and a little more Honour

“The rules for me in a game are meant to be broken, it is the job of the games maker to enforce them”

Reminds me of penalties in hockey. Most of strategically taken. Rarely does an infraction mean a complete expulsion from the game, and never forever.

Welcome back Maximus. Long road ahead, but as always, Strength and Honour. o7

So I take it you're not one of those guys who gets upset about the completely arbitrary suspensions given out to players who temporarily cripple and occasionally end the careers of others with thoroughly dirty hits? Not my opinion but I don't agree with most of what Don Cherry has to say either.

Personally I think there are red lines - step over them and you should lose the right to play. Multi'ing your way to a political victory is definitely one of them.

Foxfire
Foxfire Day 2,009, 13:15

What permanent damage was done?

Plugson
Plugson Day 2,009, 15:36

Consider it one of the many contributions made to the gradual erosion of integrity among players. The immediate effects are not discernable but if you look at eCanada from beginning to its current end, then you get a clearer picture.

Chochi
Chochi Day 2,010, 01:34

Foxfire, much like in hockey, it's impossible to quantify how much damage is done. Would Crosby have been scoring champ this year if he wasn't injured?

This crisis temporarily crippled your party and now has left it without the leader it would have otherwise chosen to head it. That is damage to the party's internal democracy and its reputation potentially driving away its current members and future ones. Who knows what else Oinyo would have accomplished had this not happened and he was rightly the PP of your party?

Point is damage done is damage done and there are certain things that should just never be condoned? He hijacked a party by cheating because he was bored? That's the worse excuse I've ever heard.

Best of luck with your new view towards the game. I respect you for openly admitting your faults. We are all human and make mistakes.

Chochi
Chochi Day 2,009, 09:12

No offense xLil Ninjax, but that's like saying that you'd have voted for Nixon again if only he'd just admitted to being a thief.

xLil Ninjax
xLil Ninjax Day 2,009, 16:07

You confuse forgiveness with empathy. In no way do I think what he did was right. I'm just saying I will not judge him because he has vowed to strive to be a better person. I respect him for making that decision. In no way do I agree with his former actions.

xLil Ninjax
xLil Ninjax Day 2,009, 18:04

I should've clarified that, because looking back on what I wrote it seemed I was alright with the decisions he made.

Chochi
Chochi Day 2,010, 01:23

Yeah, I guess I understand the sentiment. I don't respect the choice he made but I can respect the fact that he wants to change now (and we'll leave aside the fact that it's because he got caught, for now ).

[Insert Rolo comment.]

Rolo controversies were always more riveting.

Chochi
Chochi Day 2,009, 09:14

Rolo cheated fair and square within the confounds of the game - he bought his votes, never created them. He's a scoundrel and a thief and a thoroughly dishonest and reprehensible player but he does so within the confines of the established game rules - which unfortunately does not say anything but ethics or morals.

-98320CAD? Wow, that sucks. Did they touch your companies or reduce your Training Centres or anything?

Your honesty in this article is very refreshing. You only have to look at the active Fighter tab for each country on Egov4you and compare it with how many citizens each country has according to Erepublik to conclude the entire political module is founded on mass-multi use. If there was any logic in admin's punitive measures they would target the political elites in each country who no doubt farm these multis, but meh. The people who get most menstrual about multi use or "Ptos" are normally those who owe everything they have to this tactic.

I agree 100% with your sentiment, play for fun and fcuk the BS o7

Chochi
Chochi Day 2,009, 09:20

Oh so the m in PMS is for multi! Now I can self-diagnose myself more accurately as I continue to have never used a single multi-account ever. Thanks!

This "entertainment" you claim to have brought have only developed a negative political sphere within Canada. I'd rather not have it at all.

Shame on you, Beorn.

Elynea
Elynea Day 2,008, 14:28

you are honest, you already have courage to write this article. voted.

Chochi
Chochi Day 2,009, 09:21

Just not enough courage to, you know, not cheat.

Elynea
Elynea Day 2,009, 09:24

maybe but i was not in the obligation to write an article about that. I saw in the past several friends who didn't come again, no excuse in the game.

Chochi
Chochi Day 2,009, 09:27

I think I get your sentiment. I'm still not sure I could ever say that it takes much courage to confess to a crime. The harder road, clearly, is the honest one. But it is nice that he did apologise (kind of sort of) when he didn't have to and I'd be willing to forgive him if I actually gave a rat's ass.

Elynea
Elynea Day 2,010, 09:38

women are more sentimental : ) I must correct my answer. He was not*

Ralph Kline
Ralph Kline Day 2,008, 15:20

I used to care that people used multis or cheated, but so much water under the bridge. The whole idea of status is this game has faded. What does it matter?

The win is in the company and the funny shit I sometimes read here, and that's enough

Chochi
Chochi Day 2,009, 09:23

As indignant as some of my replies above might me, I actually lean more towards what you're saying. The amount of shit I give towards anything that happens in this game anymore is just enough to smother all those angels dancing on the back of a pin.

"It is interesting that I was temporarily banned when I was since these past few days have been humbling for me in real life and I did not care in the slightest that I got banned; it showed me what this game is, insignificant."

If anything is to be gleaned from this article, it would be that observation in conjunction with the amount of moral support people are showing this player.

Chochi

Ahh politics.

In the context of our evil eRepublic masters your rationalization is perfectly legitimate.

In the context of eCanada and your relationship with your fellow citizens, it was an out and out deception which ought not to be rationalized or accepted but confessed unqualified.

Just my $0.02.

"it is the job of the games maker to enforce them and if they cant catch the rule breaker than good job to them."

You actually sign a "Rules - Terms and conditions" page, yeah, that curious page no one reads. In there, it clearly says you can be banned without previous warnings for using multiple accounts, and that if you don't agree with that, you can opt to not register in the game, in fact, if you don't agree with that, you're not allowed to enter the game, and that's why you have to check the box that says "I have read and agreed to the terms and conditions" "I have read the rules of the game and agreed to follow them". You know, so really, admins wouldn't have to enforce anything if people were honest.

Foxfire
Foxfire Day 2,009, 18:01

Terms and conditions also say something about having to give up my first born child, swear to a life time of poverty and giving my soul to a pointy little man with horns, but it was still too tempting to not agree.

Chochi
Chochi Day 2,010, 01:36

Nope, it's basically the standard terms and service which basically spell out how you shouldn't be a dick. Nothing evil in it. You can't tl;dr your way out of them - just don't cheat.

JiminyChristmas
JiminyChristmas Day 2,009, 18:14

Sad that someone with a catchphrase of "Strength and Honour" should show such a lack of honour.
