Just wanted to wish you all a Happy Easter or Passover or Day off from work/school, whatever you celebrate, as well as bring you some updates.
First off, I just want to say me and my staff are working hard to solve our bonus issue, hopefully some results are achieved soon. The Airstrike/Gold Mine situation has destabilized things, and it seems that most nations want to see how it will all play out before doing swaps or rental agreements.
Secondly, an update on the gold mine situation. Serbia is of course far ahead in Europe, USA is far ahead in the Americas, Turkey has a slim lead in Asia, Australia a slim lead, and in Africa its a toss up with one day remaining, with both countries importing tanks to fight for them. The mines should pop up sometime on Monday, so be ready to start digging for some free gold.
Now, getting a gold mine and keeping it are two different things. Brazil is a very close ally of South Africa and would likely receive that mine if South Africa wins. Bulgaria has the same situation in Egypt. However, both mines are not clear cut, as Greece has been fighting hard with Bulgaria in Egypt and will contest ownership, and Indonesia has NE'd South Africa to try to steal that mine. More on that in a bit.
Poland quickly got an Airstrike, and it seemed like they were going to target Chile, owner of both Australia and New Zealand's potential mine sites. They voted down MPPs with Chile and Lithuania, both CoT members, and seemed ready to pull the trigger. They ended up however Airstriking Turkey, the likely Asian victor. Turkey was under assault by Serbia, so Poland obviously felt that destroying CoT-TWO relations was riskier then double-teaming Turkey with their much stronger ally. However, Turkey has pulled off three straight victories over Serbia and forced Serbia back to occupied Israel, though the war remains open. So tomorrow expect a huge battle when Poland launches their attack, though neither side will benefit from a NE bonus. In a rather ironic twist, by having this massive battle, it pretty much assures that Turkey will be able to maintain their lead over China in the competition.
I'll try to edit the battle link in when it starts, it should be an exciting fight to watch. USA has MPPs with neither nation, so anyone wishing to participate will need to move to another country, Canada for Turkey and Mexico for Poland should be the cheapest moves.
And Canada is about to lose their last region, so they won't exist to move to... so I suggest either just Turkey or Taiwan to move to for that side.
Anyhow, back to South Africa. Indonesia has once again NE'd South Africa despite Brazil's protection and not only CoT's rule to inform HQ about military maneuvers, but also their order to not attack South Africa/Brazil.
Brazil's Statement on the Matter
Obviously, Brazil has made very clear to Indonesia that they consider an attack on South Africa to be an attack on Brazil, and Indonesia has NE'd South Africa for the THIRD time this month, so something has to give, and we hope CoT takes action over this blatant disrespect. The United States stands of course with our bros in Brazil.
Finally, a bit of re-election news, I have received the AMP and USWP nominations unopposed, so barring something drastic I'll be running for President once again next month for sure.
I'll post up a April Cabinet in a few days, probably will be mostly the same, some promotions and reshuffling. Personally I'm happy with everyone's performance, everyone met my expectations.
Don't Google Image search whale hunting unless you like lots of blood.
Oh, and I finished Bioshock Infinite, I have to say its probably the best and smartest game I've ever played, with a fantastic and mind-blowing ending, and y'all should get it.
Anywho, Happy Easter and all that, and get ready for a GOLD RUSH!
