Join the new world


Convince Me

Day 1,806, 14:58 Published in South Africa Belgium by OKayOK

Lets say that I am looking to join a new party. I would like you to try and convince me why I should join yours. Lets call it a Social Experiment

So, Lets see what you got

We have many different programs within UP. Despite helping with NPP and other governmental Social Programs, we have many other programs to just help members of our party. From Cheap Weapons trade, to free weapons to new players within the party. We also are very active on our shout wall, and don't require so much usage of the forums. Other than our private quarters where our major dealings go on. We also have a very active core that is now growing as our members do.

We encourage our players to be as active as they can be, however if you can't be, then you can simply comment on the shout wall. We don't limit our social activities to the forum. Plus with one of the leaders of the BBC in our party, it looks to continually grow as new players come in. With all the benefits our party has to offer to new players, why wouldn't they?

Well I can tell you that government programmes such as NPP and Sawgo are supposed to be party free, no party influence is supposed to be used to influence any players through a government programme.

Onto our plus points we are beginning to get a core of players within RISE that are actually working hard for the country and are willing to go the extra mile.

I was just stating that we help with the government programs. There are some parties that aren't involved at all, I was just saying that we are. In terms of the non-government programs, that are UP specific, it's nice to have incentives to a specific party as there isn't a whole lot separating them, especially since all we can really strive to do is add new social programs...

Lol the prejudice.

Badger06 Day 1,806, 23:19

It is a steadilly growing portion and one such as yourself would go quite nicely into our brew.

We have also shaken up the party as change is good.

Nice innitiative Mark, would be cool to see all parties respond to this.

I think the biggest pull for a party is that they stick together, stand up for another member very much like the people of IA and DB did for me. As far as I know, all parties assist each other but there needs to be a special comraderie between members that makes them feel obliged to stay.

Hi Mark,

I'd like to invite you to join the Moorish Dictatorship. We are a peace loving anarchistic party where everyone I know gets a title (yes you can take that to the bank. If you join my party I will instantly give you an official title in it) as long as you obey my dictatorial commands. Plus I will further sweeten the bribe (I mean incentive) with an offer of 20 x Q7 Weapons on joining.

Kind regards,

Hamilton - Lord of all He surveys - Moore

Well... It's actually an eBrazillian Party I just took over for fun 🙂 So not really 😉 I just decided to have some fun.

Badger06 Day 1,807, 02:06

keep your brazillian then, never really was a fan of that hairstyle anyway

Wilpanzer Day 1,807, 02:07

Mark I believe you should also ask:"Why should a party accept me"

I know game mechanics don't restrict access, but you can still be stigmatised. What right do you essentially have that makes it justified to judge over a party?

"Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country."

That's what makes eSA great. Every term we have people trying out cabinet positions and people running for congress because they want to change the bigger picture.

Wilpanzer Day 1,807, 02:09

I'm not leaving it here for you to take as a core thought, but it's something to think about. Most of the time we see great leaders in small parties, the numbers don't matter, but it's also why I'm becoming worried. I think if the biggest parties continually strive for numbers we could end up bottlenecking the smaller parties.

Wilpanzer Day 1,807, 02:10

change comes from within

OKayOK Day 1,807, 08:23

Im looking to choose a party, not a religion!

Badger06 Day 1,807, 22:37

I would go with what your gut says Mark

Vanessa1309 Day 1,807, 22:58

I am with IA the political party. not because it's the biggest nor the "best" but because I have many friends there whom I have worked alongside with. Who have actually made this game exciting in many ways for me. I feel a certain loyalty to them even though I probably now have many more friends in DB. The party to supported me all the way up the political ladder, who was there for me is my party.

This game is more about relationships with other players than growing a character
