Now in Croatia

Day 1,876, 15:28 Published in Croatia Serbia by Arrlo

This is an article for Croatia. I have to apologise again for not being able to speak any Croatian-- it's my loss. I hope most of you are better equipped in foreign languages than I am, and can understand and hopefully agree with this article.

To business.

Although I've been among you for a long time now, I have rarely got involved anywhere except the battlefield, where it's always my pleasure to swing my warhammer for Croatia and our brothers!

I'm warning you, bad guise!

But I think it's time I ventured an opinion now.

Things are going badly for EDEN, no question. Our damage, even when coordinated and supported by massive tanking, is being swept aside by the superior firepower of CoTWO. That is obvious, and changing it is totally out of my hands.

To tell the truth I don't mind losing in this situation. I'm not invested in this game for reasons of real life hatred, and I'm old enough to understand that Triumph and Disaster are impostors who come and go quite often, neither of which lasts forever.

What I do mind is breakdown in friendships, and increasingly desperate acts towards neutral or friendly countries. First we need to talk about India. This has become a classic eRep drama, with the tiniest of issues being blown into the most exaggerated melodrama. There was no problem between India and Croatia whatsoever, so what on earth has happened? Seems like a combination of stupid mistakes on Croatian side exploited by agitators and trolls on the other.

People, get your act together. We are in Indian regions in the first place because they agreed to let us stay. If they decide they do not want us here any more, we have to accept that and leave. That is the nature of rental agreements, and we are not liars and bullies-- we should not renege on any agreement we have made.

With this in mind, I think our foreign affairs team has a duty to our (perhaps now, former) friends in India to talk to them immediately. As I have said in the comments of an article, it's not in Croatia's interest to wipe India or to make a new enemy. We have enough already. 🙂 Similarly it is not really in India's interest to kick us out of their regions entirely, so there is an agreement to be made here. Even if India has chosen a path to a "hostile alliance" let's say, I'm sure their new friends would not be so arrogant as to deny them the continuation of a rental arrangement with Croatia.

If however India decides it wants to have all its regions back out of spite, then that is entirely within their rights, and we must look to alternatives. A country who bullies smaller nations for its own survival is not what Croatia should be.

eCroat, EDEN soldier

"A country who bullies smaller nations for its own survival is not what Croatia should be."

that is so true... Croatia used to HELP smaller nations but of late it seems to have gone into indifference based on the magic "damage" mantra and the feeling that those who dont deal damage can be cowed down (pardon the pun) : D

Excellent article, thank you! o/

eIndia had similar situation whet they didn't renew contract with eUSA about Karnatka region back in v1.
Simply anyone thinks that they can do whatever they want with "weak" countries.
Also EDEN sadly doesn't know term of neutrality... You are their ally or their enemy in their eyes....
In the end when all this started I wonder why for example eChina didn't offer their help to eCroatia and give them some original regions for base in Asia. That would be temporary or long term solution to their problems and would definitely be win-win situation...

One year ago, when Ukraine said Bulgaria was no longer welcome to rent Ukrainian regions, we left immediately, although we were no longer allies. An honourable behaviour Croatia doesn't know.

OVALNI REBORN Day 1,876, 17:37

I voted this article and will leave this here for our e-government:

Navik on živi ki zgine pošteno.

You may not know a word of Croatian but it seems you know the meaning of this verse, and they know all the words and yet they understand nothing.

Wildrunner Day 1,876, 22:32

boyan, we actually left iran and attacked it just to pass to india and s. arabia, we left after that and this given that iran were no longer allites at that point. of course later iran attacked us in s. arabia but that's totally different story.

on this topic, croatia are to blame themselves for dealing with thailand about indian regions and for dealing with thailand in general, the empty acusations that india applied for CoT but thailand refused it... seriously dunno if it's trolling or just plain retarded.

Wildrunner Day 1,876, 22:56

The #jebeskrave channel... what to say, really awful. If I were Indian I'd never have any talks with you after this.

Tjutg Simzb
Tjutg Simzb Day 1,877, 23:12

We see lots of unacceptable insults in this game then a channel name like "jebeskrave" and countries continue to talk, nobody can mark a whole nation with actions of a few. BTW, when this comment comes from a Bulgarian who uses country names to try to insult people, it really becomes funny.

Absentee Day 1,877, 23:16

well, I believe mistakes have been made on both sides.. and it seems to me that ecroatia has gone in apathy... its population is too eold but i belive better days are ahead of us.

Wildrunner Day 1,877, 00:50

nobody can mark a whole nation with actions of a few.

Those are in fact representatives of the nation. If I insult you I represent noone but myself, If I'm mofa however I represent my nation. thought this is obvious.

"Seems like a combination of stupid mistakes on Croatian side exploited by agitators and trolls on the other." - so much about ur understanding of the situation - u should read the Info Minute, the official gazette of the Croatian Ministry of Information to get a broader picture of the events

Wildrunner Day 1,877, 01:02

Moreover the people who made that insult are still in the goverment, that's hilarious. For such kind of thing they should have first apologized and later resigned, this could have helped to mend the wounds a bit and show that Croatia is distancing itself from this.

Arrlo Day 1,877, 02:11

Matlock I'm afraid no official account can explain away some of the mistakes the government has made. and nor does it change the point that my article seeks to make. I suggest you use whatever influence you have in government to bring about some civil talks with eIndia with a view to a mutually satisfactory resolution. If you are already, good- ignore this!

love u marge

about that channel name - it's an epic fail from our team, but the meaning and intent is being distorted by cheap trolls... lemme explain - india has a cattle region, and we use the word "cow" to signify the cattle bonus... now then, every1 wanted to get that bonus from india, but we said f cows, allies come first... but some ppl seized the opportunity and ised that to achieve what they wanted from the start - joining cot that is...
again, it was a moronic move from our negotiators, but this godawfull bulgur spin is even worse.. kthxbai

Wildrunner Day 1,877, 05:29

but we said f cows, allies come first...

rofl, you invited Indians to this channel to tell them you're gonna wipe them out and that they will have a congress.... MAYBE

Allies come first indeed

but this godawfull bulgur spin is even worse

Cool story bro

Stop this insane war, talk to eIndia (not to Serbian multi accounts acts as vMoFA) and agree about renting or leaving Indian regions within a reasonable time. We always respected friends and foes, don't change this for few bonuses!
