Regarding this congress election rule.

Day 1,648, 00:55 Published in Japan Netherlands by 2.D.G
There is a certain congress election rule in place, this is in our advantage at the moment.
As you can see now :


We now have a total of 46 congress seats.

I will explain this rule.

With this rule, the amount of canidates per region is calculated on the end of the 22th.
That was before shikoku was conquered. We had 5 regions on the end of the 22th.
5 regions = 7 x 5 official canidates + 5 wildcards.
So the amount of canidates was calculated on 7 per region, this means that if we conquer another region on the 23th, we will have an EXTRA 7 canidates.
Because the amount of regions, thus final canidates is calculated on the end of the 23th day.

So in short : End 22th we had 5 regions, this would equal 7 canidates per region and 5 wildcards.
Totalling 40 -> However, we conquered another region between the 22th and 23th so we gained ANOTHER 7 canidates.

Looking at the other side, Taiwan. Taiwan had been calculated to have 16 regions. This means that they get 2 canidates per region AND 8 wildcards.
On the end of the 22th their amount of "canidates" per region was calculated to be 2 per region. However on the 23th they lost one region, this means that they lose 2 canidates. Resulting in them having a total of 38 canidates.

My writing style might not be entirely clear but I hope I did make this new "development" in the congress elections a bit more clear.

Geezus, this is a new rule.

Then, we can get more congress seats by lending regions to another country before 22th, and taking them back after 22th.
Of course, I think, there is no country to agree.

Arari, this might be a good deal with taiwan, to share the profits. This way we could RW 2 regions and get 58 canidates, then pay them half of the money. This would only cost them 4 canidates.

2.D.G Day 1,648, 01:25

So they would get 45 gold and we would get 45 gold extra.

It won't be a new rule, until they have documented it. Until then it's a bug.

ummm... UMMMM I don't get this.

As I recall this was already the case a few months ago, when the Netherlands were at war with Belgium. I looked up the rules on the wiki and this behaviour was exactly what I thought would happen. So Elgorro, it is documented on the wiki:
Q: What happens to the total number of congress members if we conquer region during elections?
Check the answer and compare what happened here. 😉

So samproidz, this is also not a new rule (check the edit times of that section of the wiki: Last year in August, almost a year ago). It's just an exceptional case, which hardly anyone knows about, because noone bothers to read all the relevant wiki pages. 😉

I'm pretty sure I have never seen anyone have a congress bigger than 40 people yet, aside from the countries with more than 40 regions.

It isn't new..

Already, wiki has mentioned it.

2.D.G Day 1,648, 03:39

Ok you're right, I've edited it, but many people might be wondering why we have more than 40 CMs so I'll leave this article in place.

ElGorro Day 1,648, 09:40

The Wiki doesn't mention it's calculated on the amount regions you have on 22th 23:59.

Darshu Day 1,648, 16:46

Who's that handsome devil?

Akki Day 1,648, 17:06

I believe the system with 22 day calculation was implemented because in the past, when region changed near election, everything in the election system became buggy, so it had been this way for a while now.

That's not to say it's okay to purposely try to take advantage of this. That might constitute as abuse of erepublik system outside of it's intended purpose. Though, I am not admin, so I can't tell but I wouldn't advise trying to achieve this purposely every month.
