[UKRP] Sad Irony of elections (FREE GIVE AWAY!)

Day 1,811, 13:05 Published in United Kingdom United Kingdom by Jamie2721

So once again we have another massively exciting election upon us (plus 1 point if you noticed sarcasm. Didn't know it was a quiz? Tough).

We see two sides battling it out for days, if not weeks telling us about how much they love new players, why they should vote for them yada yada yada. The truth is they will spend more on buying votes for articles telling you how much they'll help new players than they actually will on ....helping new players. And then they moan about Plato when young players leave.

Free Give Away you say?

At UKRP, we thought about buying votes for an article. But then we thought what if we actually used that money to help newer players rather than feed our own egos.

That's why if you're under level 30, and are a citizen of eUK all you have to do is post a comment and i will send you 5 Q7 tanks and 100 Q1 food

Are you in TUP? Doesn't matter
Are you in UKPP? Doesn't matter
Are you in ESO? Doesn't matter
Are you in (insert your party's name here)? Doesn't matter

Why does it not matter? Because we want to support all new players.

We're not even running a candidate for President this month. Helping new players is just what we do.

So if you're tired of seeing bellies (no offence Lauren, i thought yours was very nice) and tits (no offence goku, you had a couple of smashing points) then why not consider the UK Reform Party if you're ever looking for a new party.

I apologize in advance to all the new players who will not see this because of all the silly tit for tat articles being bought by a couple of people who think that you want to spend you're time listening to what they have to say.

We recognize you don't, and instead of ending my message with VOTE FOR XXX i will instead say to you, ENJOY THE FIREWORKS!!!

Thanks for reading,

voted and excellent idea. I was thinking the same, Goku, Appleby, Talon,... all of them have spend literally thousands of GBP into stupid self promoting. And yes, I've never bought, and I always say new players should be the absolute priority. A very strong NHS(not privately funded, but rather generous state funding).

Hahaha this made me laugh Jamie. Would be nice for the vote buying to die down after the elections to give everyone a chance to post an article and get it read.

This is your party spokesman feeding his own ego with a vote bought article today:
Shame that couldn't go to new players!

You do have a good point and I will be looking at ways to lessen the money spent on votes next month. I will say that what we spent is nothing compared to what New Players will get from the game via Military Medals suich as Patriot if Richard Feist wins.

Talon hasn't bought any votes actually. There are currently two training wars if anyone is looking for a patriot medal.

I quite enjoyed this article. Great work! o7

Goku if you'd have donate all the money you wasted on vote buying to the NHS the UK would be able to offer new players a lot more

Bohemond4 Day 1,811, 19:28

great read! I agree, buying votes has to stop. People who see no shame in it need to realise its just silly. Though, for his faults, Talon has not bought any votes for the campaign. He bought them once in the latest round of shenanigans to get his important message out that was to do with the war(s) rather than 'vote for me!!!'

There has been vote buying, sadly, and this really should stop.

Good article, but you would need to buy 300 votes to get into top 5 with this.
