Day 1949

Dear eRepublikans,

My good friend NoOnexRO asked me to republish his latest article regarding GOLD MINE competition, a new feature Admins introduced today.

I'm sure you all know a lot about it, but that's not topic of this article, it's something else, so read it pls.

Republished from this article


eRepublik has announced a worldwide competition in order to offer 5 major bonuses to 5 winning countries: "GOLD MINES". From what I understand each citizen will add an amount of damage to his country. In the end the country with the highest damage in a certain area will be awarded with a gold mine.

It is unclear if this damage will be linked somehow to the number of active players in a certain country. For instance eMoldova (a country with 500 players) is in the same region with eHungary (a country with 5.500 players) or eSerbia (a country with 15.000 players). In order to have a balanced competition the final top should be based on the AVERAGE DAMAGE of the citizens, not by the TOTAL DAMAGE of the citizens.

In this way all the countries will have the same chances in winning the prizes.

If the TOTAL DAMAGE is used countries with a small population will be insignificant in this event.

Furthermore, many players will change the citizenship leaving the small countries even more deserted than they are now.

This is a call to every player. If you agree with this proposal, please sign this article, promote it through shouts or other articles or simple write a ticket to the administration mentioning this subject.

So, in short:

The top could be calculated like this: (A TOTAL)

player1damage + player2damage + player3damage... - and this will be the sum of 200 players or 20.000 players depending on the country's population

or could be calculated like this: (AN AVERAGE)

(player1damage + player2damage + player3damage...) / number_of active_citizens

All countries should have the same chances of winning.

Please support this! Vote, shout and sign/comment.

Republisher's opinion: I'm calling you all to support this iniciative cuz it make sense. Every country should have equal chances no matter what prize is. Together we can push admins to change this feature ASAP. I know that's tough job for them, but let them try 🙂

Let's share this and maybe write some tickets. Let's make competition interesting...

For shout:

If you make it for average damage will be unbalanced for old countries with low population, being unfair for countries like argentina with a lots of new people.

Hanibal LA
Hanibal LA Day 1,950, 08:11

but still is more fair then like it is now. Everybody knows who will win's not interesting..

BattleSir12 Day 1,949, 12:55

I support this.

ligtreb Day 1,949, 13:08

I agree with making it average instead of total.

By the way, best of luck in your new country.

Hanibal LA
Hanibal LA Day 1,949, 13:19

TY 😃 i hope that's not ironic xD

anyway, let's spread this, and write some tickets..why not?!

KOSOVA ArlinDx Day 1,949, 13:21

Couldn't agree anymore

OEBernd Day 1,949, 13:22

So if you have a country with 3 top players you would be better than serbia...

Hanibal LA
Hanibal LA Day 1,949, 13:29

maybe, maybe not. It's not just about top player, but about whole country adn their avg dmg...

nuno258 Day 1,950, 07:47

exactly what ge´s saying...
if it is by avg damage e USA will win

Pravoslavac IC XC
Pravoslavac IC XC Day 1,949, 13:35

USA will win...

The Milliner
The Milliner Day 1,949, 13:39

eCountries with more powerful players and players who buy gold for RL money would have the edge anyway, so where are those equal chances you're speaking of?

Hanibal LA
Hanibal LA Day 1,949, 14:10

It doesn't matter, still is more fair then on this way...

The Milliner
The Milliner Day 1,949, 14:11

The way I see it, it's not. Plus what the guy below said. So what now?

Hanibal LA
Hanibal LA Day 1,949, 14:14

see my answer below...

The Milliner
The Milliner Day 1,950, 06:58

OK, I saw it. So what you openly suggest is that we start mass producing multies? Niiice idea.

Hanibal LA
Hanibal LA Day 1,950, 07:15

nope, you and Zlatiborac started talking about this issue..I just said what's gonna happen if this option becames truth...

The Milliner
The Milliner Day 1,950, 12:10

Excuse me, my friend, but Zlatiborac highlighted a possible serious issue if your suggestion was to become course of action the administrators were to undertake, an opinion that I agreed with, whereas you replied "so they'll sabotage us with multies a bit, and we will respond with the same...". Ergo, you suggested a counter-measure for "enemy" multies.

Agreed. It should be the average Damage, as basing it on Total Damage means its already a foregone conclusion in practically every continent. I doubt they'll change it at this late stage though unfortunately.


Marcos Farias
Marcos Farias Day 1,949, 15:38

They want the big guys to fight each other, that's what generates money is this game.

A stupid idea. Let me elaborate: If a small but efficient country wins a mine, can it hold onto it? No, because wars are won by total damage, not average damage. Their large neighbors will capture their capital. Now did you do that small country good or evil?

Kemal Ergenekon

Oh by the way:

Influence/fighter ranking of countries

That would be better but I don't know why would "smaller" countries even try to win that...
If they win it would mean being conquered by some stronger neighboring country. That would only bring them more trouble tha good in the end....

Pescaman Day 1,950, 07:06

Agree: Voted!

Rican Day 1,950, 07:09

I support this and i'll shout it for you... but good luck getting admin to see reason. : /

Detharon Day 1,950, 07:13

Not agreed, this is even worse than overall dmg, as it will favours small countries ptoed by strong players.
Eventually they'll get conquered by strong neighbours...

KOSOVA Batoa Day 1,950, 07:15

Agree. V + shout.

I agree that this would be a great idea, but it would need some further refinement. If the gold mine is able to be captured by a foreign invader, then the small country would just be looking at getting wiped for the term of the mines existence. If, on the other hand, the mine did not revert to the foreign country then the small country would have a great incentive to participate in this. It would also help a small country to build it's population, and perhaps even out the playing field in eRepublik in the long term.

But getting the Admins to go along....

Satya Yuga
Satya Yuga Day 1,950, 07:34

Agreed wit the above.

Hanibal LA
Hanibal LA Day 1,950, 08:09

for example, small country can offer to strong ally to defent it in exchange for x GOLD....

there is a lot of options. The point is competition on this way will be more fair then how it is now...

Last Son of Krypton
Last Son of Krypton Day 1,950, 08:19

so what exactly is the point of giving X amount of gold to STRONG ally????
this idiea dont make any sense, just cuz you are in favor of supporting smaller countries at this moment.
and i am sure you will agree that this is the not the first thing what admin had done wrong in this game. so bare with it o/

Hanibal LA
Hanibal LA Day 1,950, 08:25

" just cuz you are in favor of supporting smaller countries at this moment." this is exactly what we want to promote..

and agree, this whole game sucks, so nothing new with this feature too

Strength and Honour

MitkoRadev Day 1,950, 09:38

I DON'T agree, a country with lot's of sitizens may mean a baby-booming country full of young players, it wil be at a big disadvantage, also if 50-60 tanks go to a little country they will average hundreds of milions of damage over a fewer citizens and this will be a big advantage, and lead to a worse situation. The current scheme, as unfair as it is, is still better than the proposed average damage idea.
