Some time ago, on Wednesday September 28, 2011, we were informed:
As you travel across the eRepublik map, you can find in Southern Europe one grey spot in the Balkan peninsula. In real life you can find there the Albanian and Kosovo territories. As the eAlbanian community in eRepublik is growing larger and larger it’s time for the eAlbanians to get a country to settle.|
So in the following period of time we will analyze what regions will form eAlbania, what resources will be found in the new added regions and what’s the status of eKosovo.
On 12 October 2011 a poll has been set in order to decide the status of eKosovo in eRepublik:
As you already know, together with eAlbania we will add eKosovo as a new territory in eRepublik.|
After analyzing the international status of this region we realized that there is no right or wrong decision. Any resolution from our side, in this case, will be quite arbitrary.
As a result, our conclusion is the following: since we all are in a game in which you can rewrite the history, the eRepublik citizens should decide on this topic, by participating in a poll. The poll will be available in the next couple of days and the eRepublik community will be the one to decide the status of eKosovo in eRepublik.
Poll is active and everyone started to vote. eRomanian president from that time said:
We are at war with Hungary. We all know very well how it feels when Transylvania suddenly turns green and we see red in front of our eyes. We do not accept, even if In Game is not the same as Real Life, that the region they long for may become theirs.
Certainly this game has nationalistic aspects too because otherwise lots of us wouldn't be here today. That is why I ask you to vote! We support the effort of Serbia in this endeavor, the same way we did it on other real life occasions. Kosovo is Serbia!
Kosovo as a region of Serbia!
After 23 hours have passed since the voting started we were informed about intermediary voting stats:
Total votes: 38.255
* 50,39% voted for an independent eKosovo
* 49,61% voted for Kosovo as a region of Serbia
What countries voted the most until Day 1.423, 6 o’clock server time?
Of course, Serbia is the most motivated so more than 5.000 citizens voted. On the following places were Poland (more than 3.000 votes), Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) – more than 2000 voters, Bulgaria, Turkey, Croatia and Hungary (more than 1.500 voters).
Who voted for Kosovo independency?
From the total number of voters from Republic of China (Taiwan), 94% voted for Kosovo independency! This decision was sustained also by 87% from Croatian voters, 85% from Colombia and Bosnia Herzegovina and 84% from the total votes in Uruguay, Cyprus and Malaysia.
Who wants Kosovo as a region in Serbia?
Of course, first of all, Serbia: 96% from the Serbian voters chooses this solution. But this solution is sustain also by more than 80% from the voters in Thailand, Montenegro, Rep. of Macedonia (FYROM), United Arab Emirates and New Zeeland, while in Romania, Slovakia and Czech Republic more than 70% from the total voters consider that Kosovo should be a region in Serbia.
The poll ended, we were informed about the final result.
As you already know, it was a very balanced poll and the final results were almost impossible to be predicted. Each of the options have several times had the majority of the votes. Still, after 3 days of voting, while 59.634 citizens expressed their opinion, the vote concluded:
- Kosovo as a region of Serbia: 30.039 citizens;
- eKosovo as an independent country: 29.596 citizens.
So Kosovo will be added in eRepublik as a region of Serbia, we will let you know when this will happen. Until then we have to prepare the map, to choose the resources (do not forget that we will also add eAlbania together with this new region) and then we’ll go live.
Until then, we will find together who voted the most, what countries had a great influence, practically, who took this decision. As you saw, a great number of citizens voted. By the way, huge thanks to all the players that showed their interest for voting in this poll and to the community as a whole.
Finally, Serbia won a new region, Kosovo. Serbia, of course, together with Rep. of Macedonia (FYROM), Romania, Poland and Hungary were the most influential. You can see the top 10 below:
On Thursday November 8, 2011, we welcome in eRepublik a new country, Albania, and a new region for Serbia, Kosovo.
Vreme je da nase prijateljstvo zazivi.
