[CP] Midterm Report

Day 2,068, 14:55 Published in Ireland Ireland by Sweet Drinker

This term has been deceptively quiet:
Incredible weather in the RL republic has continued to keep players pretty distracted from the game.
Our NAP with UK has been maintained with little incident, we've had no homeland battles.
It's made for a quiet term, this is the first update article I've written, and it's nearly half way through.

Behind this radio silence:
Congress has been pretty active, and I'm happy to report, not entirely with talking about Conway!
All these civil and intelligent talks about allies, MPPs, CS applications, battle priorities, and ofc alliances are threatening to restore my faith in democracy!

The MoF is quietly accumulating our treasury, which is ofc now at a new high since the 'great heist era'.

The MoD is quietly running it's operations, improving it's logistical responsiveness, and ofc supporting our friends abroad.

The MoFA is quietly keeping us tapped into international affairs, forging new friendships, and ofc maintaining old ones.

And I've been quietly building us what I hope is a better future.

When an engine is running well it doesn't make a lot of noise, and that's how I like to look at the 1st half of this term 🙂

Things you may find of interest:

It's often been difficult to set DO's, due to our allies being wiped. We've been working on developing some new MPP's and ofc, trying to help our friends get lesswiped.
I think it's important to realise how fortunate a nonTWO nation (especially one our size) is to sit comfortably on the map, considering how difficult that has been for our friends to even hold a single region.

Portugal MPP's Serbia Portugal is a longtime friend of ours, and while the Serbian MPP is really a case of 'anything to counter Spain', we are sad to see our friends moving toward the dark side 😛

Spain & TWO While Spain's relationship with TWO has been in the news a lot recently, they've been renewing TWO MPPs strongly. However it does seem like some love has been lost, many TWO citizens seem to be deliberately antagonising Spain in an attempt to drive them from the alliance.

Whispers of a new alliance There has been talk of a strong new alliance emerging. If you're an internationally minded player you can't help but think anything that may shift the unbalance of power would be a good thing.

IRE~UK NAP The proposal to extend our NAP agreement with Britain has unofficially been ratified (the proposal is technically still at the voting stage but it has already reached an overwhelming majority).
I understand that many ppl are unhappy with UK holding some of our regions. However we're not capable of maintaining a protracted war against the UK, and I wouldn't be admitting that if Britain wasn't aware of it!
While I'm not fond of giving up regions for nothing in return, our time/energy has much better uses abroad, and any ally (or potential ally) would view us as incompetent morons if we didn't agree to it in the current geopolitical environment where just about all of our friends are in wipe situations.

Cork The bizarre region we technically are supposed to have, yet refuse to reacquire from the willing UK.
We've been avoiding the acquisition of Cork due to it being a bridge for TWOish Spain to invade us through.
While some would argue that if Spain wished to invade us our enemies would simply RW the region back to us, heavily mobilised RW's are my military specialty (the reason UK agreed to a peace agreement in the first place). And even if the region were RW'd against our wishes as a precursor to invasion, it would provide us a large window to prepare.
Spain is a bit of an enigma as nations go. Even their alliance has trouble knowing exactly where they stand!
Until we've some idea what Spain are up to longterm, I've no intention to risk our Dail/nation for a single fkn food bonus!

That's it for now. If anything newsworthy pops up I'll roll out an article asap. but hopefully we have an equally quiet second half.
Help our allies. Make some friends. Enjoy some sunshine, it's meant to stay nice for awhile yet, and most of us could use some Vitamin D.

Remember your sunscreen!

I think the USA been wiped pretty easily really puts our position. Its a TWO world and unless that changes we don't really have a choice that said all alliances fall eventually so its important we have good friends who will stand by us when that come eg not Argentina

"When an engine is running well it doesn't make a lot of noise"

Sounds like you're engine is overdue for some maintenance Viktor.

Viktor Kurgan
Viktor Kurgan Day 2,069, 08:16

My engine works on facts and proofs....and that is why it sounds annoying to traitors, thiefs, scammers, liars and douchebags in general.
Those with honour my engine sounds perfectly.....

You sound annoying....ibhoy....

Yddub Emwolb
Yddub Emwolb Day 2,069, 08:41


Viktor Kurgan
Viktor Kurgan Day 2,069, 09:44 do sound annoying..

Yddub Emwolb
Yddub Emwolb Day 2,069, 09:51

Yeah, I do sound pretty annoying to morons and idiots. Which are you again?

Viktor Kurgan
Viktor Kurgan Day 2,069, 11:36

Forgive my bad english.....i ment you sound annoyed.
But why so much hate?
It's only a game....why you so angry at Kurgy you resort to insult attempts?

Wouldn't be better is you use arguments against my claims?
To prove me wrong?

This way you look rather impotent and powerless to defy any of my claims......

Is impotence a reason of your anger?

Death and Taxes
Death and Taxes Day 2,069, 11:54

He's not annoyed, he's just pointing out as per usual that you've nothing positive or constructive to say. But I have an idea.

Viktor Kurgan
Viktor Kurgan Day 2,069, 12:31

So you know how "Yddub" feels?
You must have some psychic abilities...or you are "yddub's" intimate friend....

My job is to divide...not ireland...but prasites from true irish patriots.

And i apologies if you feel separated from true irish.

I have last 3 articles with very constructive proofs and questions...
If that is not constructive you should not have to have a problem proving me wrong.
But so far i saw nothing constructive from you that would prove me wrong...only empty words...malbekh...

But let me ask you a constructive questions:
Why you lied conway returned the money?
Can you repeat how conway "returned" the money?
Why you suport proven traitors?

Constructive answers please....

Death and Taxes
Death and Taxes Day 2,069, 14:02

There you go Kurgan, your opportunity to show why you are better that everyone else in Ireland: Or forever hold your peace

Yddub Emwolb
Yddub Emwolb Day 2,069, 14:39

Spoiled brat response? As opposed to your histrionics? You ask me for proof when all you offer is unfounded accusations and, as Sweet just proved, misinformation.
Do you even have a clue as to how ridiculous you sound? Do you want to bring up how IBhoy had to beg you for his party back again? Because a lot of us see it differently. But then you'll just spin a response with your circle talk. Perhaps The WORD is senility. It's like talking to SHM. Oh, wait....

Viktor Kurgan
Viktor Kurgan Day 2,070, 18:04

Answer the question Malbekh.
And i put your crap in my original article:

Yddub Emwolb
Yddub Emwolb Day 2,069, 11:52

I'll also forgive your poor understanding of English. I'm not annoyed, just pointing out that you are indeed an idiot.
It's pointless arguing with you. You hear what you want and it annoys you to no end that eIreland achieved it's greatest success when IBhoy, Sweet and the Kuntz/Orcs were running the show.

Viktor Kurgan
Viktor Kurgan Day 2,069, 12:22

Silly boy....only coz you want something to be you think it must be.
Kind of spoiled brat way of thinking.
To make your pointing right you must present some proofs.
Proofs like i present when crituiqe this british puppet government.

If you accuse without any evidences it makes you look mentally chalenged and you don't want that.

Success...greatest.....agree it is success for you get loaded with government cash every time when on power.

And what this government did?
Lost every rw....even fighting against their own irish people.
Supports traitors, and helping conway in his scam of irish citizens with that truly retarded story.....

Please "Yddub"....defy any of proofs i just told how smart are you...

Sweet Drinker
Sweet Drinker Day 2,069, 13:35

Actually we won 3 RW's
out of 4 RW's that we attempted to win.
That's a 75% military success rate, despite very poor odds.
For proof of these statistics, refer to the map, our national society page. You'll find 3 Irish regions, where there was none when this government took office.

Viktor Kurgan
Viktor Kurgan Day 2,070, 18:06

Actually you won leftover regions that british gave you.
You count that as victory?
And you won 3 out of 4 that was given to you so......pathetic..

Nice report Sweet!

Loouman Day 2,069, 04:38

"If you're an internationally minded player you can't help but think anything that may shift the unbalance of power would be a good thing." In the game of Risk if i am the small player i steady work on shifting who the dominate player is an whilst everyone is vying for the top spot i steady grow stronger than they. So i absolutely believe a power shift is a good thing, for a small country like us.

Can we get some |RW support already?>

James Buffet
James Buffet Day 2,069, 05:22

Support RW and make them your DO

Ian E CoIeman
Ian E CoIeman Day 2,069, 11:15

Support a RW where? eIreland has all of the regions that our government wants to occupy.

Viktor Kurgan
Viktor Kurgan Day 2,069, 11:40

by our government you mean british or irish?

James Buffet
James Buffet Day 2,069, 13:57

I am fairly certain irish pride doesnt allow for only 3 terrtories or for letting engserbia having the rest of us. but im drunk right now so what do i know. I am spending all my moneys support rws, if you wanna help send me pm's for money, food and weapons.

Sweet Drinker
Sweet Drinker Day 2,069, 19:52

Pride doesn't win battles, dmg does.
I'm banking on Irish Intelligence being greater than Irish Pride

James Buffet

you mean you are a coward

Sweet Drinker

Wars aren't won by madly charging in, wearing blue paint instead of armour, every time you see the enemy.
Tactical analysis, grouping, timing. These are how you win campaigns.

James Buffet
James Buffet Day 2,070, 16:28

Dude we aren't doing anything at all. And you know the scots did fairly well in just blue paint with no armor
