eRepublik @ LeWeb in France

Day 379, 03:54 Published in Slovenia by Plato

Dear citizens,

On the 9th and 10th of December, eRepublik will participate in the '08 edition of Le Web, the #1 Internet event in Europe. Therefore, Alexis Bonte, George Lemnaru and Cristi Badea will be in Paris next week. They will arrive on Monday and will stay in France until Thursday. It would be great to have an eRepublik meeting in Paris during one of those days. If you wish to attend, please submit your proposals concerning the setup of a gathering. Further details about the meeting will be given in a future Insider article.

Meanwhile, we want to announce that your citizen can now use its gained experience to go beyond level 14. More details regarding this improvement can be found on the eRepublik UPDATES forum topic.

Keep an eye on this one as this is where new features or updates will be announced in the future.

Newly added notice: Today (December 3, 200😎, between 05:00 and 05:30 (eRepublik time), the avatars/pictures from the website will not be available. There is no need to worry if you see that problem.

Mutual Protection Pacts

Over time Mutual Protection Pacts have changed and evolved. As a result, an updated description of an MPP is now necessary.

A Mutual Protection Pact (MPP) is an agreement between two countries. If one county in the pact is attacked, the other country automatically becomes an ally in the war. This agreement is favorable as you can count on your partners to come to your defense in case you are attacked. On the other hand, you will be forced to fight against any attacker of the countries linked to this agreement - even if that attacker is a partner of your country in another Mutual Protection Pact. (Example: If countries A and B both have an MPP with country C and country A decides to attack country B, the MPP between countries A and C will be canceled.)

MPPs can be proposed by the president of any given country. If accepted by Congress, it will be valid starting the day it was accepted for one month. After one month the MPP is disabled automatically. Before being disabled, the president can propose another MPP with the same country and, if approved by Congress, the end date is delayed for 30 days.

MPPs work only for the regions that have always belonged to a given country (a region in which a resistance war is impossible to start). If the country that is being attacked tries to conquer one of the original regions of the attacker country, attackers' MPPs are active and all its' allies can fight in defending those regions.

A special case is encountered when your country borders the attacker that declared war on an MPP allied country of yours. In this situation, a war is automatically opened between your country and the attacker. No MPP will be activated for this secondary war.

Best regards,
The eRepublik Team
