Eerlijk over EDEN / honest about EDEN

Day 1,890, 13:31 Published in Netherlands Netherlands by Zeeuwsmeisje
In the past months the sense of brotherhood in EDEN has been questioned by several players in the eNetherlands. The main reason why we are having a referendum in the upcoming days. Although there was reason for complaint, in his former position of CP Van Spijck fought hard for 6 months to achieve change within the alliance, and he gained the trust of the majority of the other members, enough to vote him into the position of Supreme Commander. About a month ago, under Van Spijck a new HQ was formed, with players from smaller countries too.

We can honestly say we started off in good faith, we gave it our very best, and despite the hurdles we had to take, we made progress. But of course, not everyone in EDEN was pleased with our ambition to restore democracy and brotherhood to a level where it would seriously mean something when expressed that all be equal. What we for instance didn’t do was give in to the demands of the larger countries for prio whenever they wanted (without informing us upfront on plans), and especially among some ‘key-countries’ as they consider themselves grew dissatisfaction for the ‘lack of a military strategy’.

In the summit last Sunday, a vote of confidence took place for the position of the SC. Although some attacks were personal (based on few incidents on IRC), most were addressed to the functioning of the whole team. Since we were indeed a team, and we take responsibility for all that went down, most members of the team chose to resign along with Van Spijck.

Now, we are not saying we were the best HQ ever and we did not make mistakes. But it doesn’t take a mastermind to figure out this was bound to happen at some point. Still, we had confidence in the majority that voted the HQ in place. What we did not see coming, however, was what went down when it came to voting. As we in private were told by more than one country that their stronger brother had put pressure on the way they would vote. That was even a shock to us.

Without going into further detail, since summits are confidential, it is clear that some brothers feel they are more equal than others. This confirms us in our belief that among players the sense of brotherhood is still alive, but EDEN is not the place to find it anymore.

This may come to you as a surprise, since we all have been putting so much effort in, also in trying to convince you to fight for the brotherhood. What can we say. We are proud we can say we didn’t just abandon ship, at least we fought for it. We have given it a fair chance, in return they gave us more than enough reason to vote for leaving EDEN.

If NL leaves EDEN, does this mean NL won't have to pay Poland to be allowed to have one of their own core regions now?

Broersje Day 1,890, 13:51

@CFovetS: Probably not. It will only mean that we'll have no EDEN support once Poland invades again.

*sigh* And previous HQ could have said the same and all HQ's that have got trust vote gone wrong for their SC.

If you would have wanted and still want best for HQ you should know when not to stirr things up. None of us have no idea yet how good it will be for the member countries under new SC.

This is just disappointement talking now. You let your emotions go over your ration.

You were HQ that started under the bad stars and when things are going bad around the world, this shit happens when people feel they are splitten in half. I personaly gave my support to you and I'm dissapointment that you make just same moves than those you are now accusing.

I wish you all well and hope to see you on the channels in future and some of you in HQ positions.

There are no key members, there are no minor members. There are no small countries, there are no big countries. There are only member countries. I trust alpho will do his best to keep it that way.

This may come to you as a surprise...

facepalm... what surprise could that be when this has been said over and over again for atleast an year if not more.

EDEN can't free you from Poland since April, I admire that you stood for so long there ; )

Alex.L Day 1,890, 13:57

Why am I not surprised?
EDEN is full of hypocrites who spread propaganda about so called brotherhood.

It's obvious that EDEN is dead but reason why some countries don't want to admit it is their sick pride.
Good for CoTwo, not complaining though

Atea Day 1,890, 14:05

All these comments and shouts about this article prove that EDEN is either dead or zombie. I'm unsure why this turned into "Holland issue" cause a HQ doesn't represent a country.. If they do, they are not a HQ-worthy.

Good luck alpho, good luck Holland and people that signed this.

And for those from CoTWO.. you really are ignorant to think that "EDENs death" would benefit you.

"And for those from CoTWO.. you really are ignorant to think that "EDENs death" would benefit you."

EDEN's death won't benefit them, it will just cause the game to evolve and move on. It would make the game more interesting for once.

This article just proves that you never had the required quality to command an alliance like EDEN. Don't try to belame anybody while you got the full control of the alliance.

Sadly, it doesn't end with the death of Eden. The plague rats will just move onto another ship.

Wildrunner Day 1,890, 14:24

It will only mean that we'll have no EDEN support once Poland invades again.

In EDEN or not you still wont get any help. EDEN's big countries don't fight against TWO, they only fight against CoT for bonuses. And even when they have those bonuses and are not at war they still won't help the little countries from their alliance who are under TWO occupation.
That's in case anyone is wondering what has been happening in EDEN for the past almost an year.

Kordak Day 1,890, 14:28

How could people in EDEN do this? You were all so pro-eden and attacked me when I said something different. The HQ made so much propaganda to get support. It's what few of us saw coming, the end of EDEN. We were not blind, we wanted solution, now we are in very difficult situation. Thx..

I'm sorry that it has come to this. I still think that an alliance based values of old is viable. But let EDEN die first. Thank you for trying. With respect o7

alpho Day 1,890, 14:35

Thank you all from the HQ for working for EDEN these 40-45 days. It's been a pleasure and I hope to see you guys and girls again soon back in, ready to work. You gathered experience now, experience that will help you in a positive way in your future endeavors, hopefully, in the confines of EDEN.

The door is open.

Looks like some countries were more interested in their bonuses rather than being part of a true brotherhood, yikes.
