Good Sunday afternoon to you all, I hope you enjoy and take your deserved rest after long and hard week of doing nothing as I am. In last few weeks I’ve been very busy with my RL, I had a lots of examns and I still have a lot of them but the main ones are solved so now I can play this game a bit more.
Why Shield 72?
Well for me game was boring in D4, I’ve done everything I could in this game so why not start over again. It’s boring anyway. First few days are good craic, I’m having a lot more fun then I had in D4. Everyone plays this game to kill boredom and this is my way to kill my boredom. I’m the same player with a different level and name.
I’d like to present my new newspapers - The Irish Shield. Why this name? I like to consider myself as Irish watchdog, in my whole eLife I’ve been trying to make Ireland stronger, to keep Ireland safe from anyone and to do my part in developing our little, but proud eCountry. I’ll keep doing this and I’ll keep doing things I think it’s right to do, everyone makes mistake, I’ve made mistakes too, I’ve trusted the wrong people, I had fights with fair people who didn’t deserved this, but most of all I’ve done what I thought it’s best to do, best for Ireland, best for community.
I had to comment several topics in eIreland these days..
1) CP Elections
2) PTO of “The Kunts”
3) Alliance membership
4) How to make Ireland stronger?
Presidental elections - February 2013.
So we have four major candidates - Marinko Margarin, Brian Boru, Irish Gawain and Mike Bane. I have to say it’s nice to see we have so many options and I’m p sure votes will be split over all of them equally. Now, I’ll be so free to comment each one of them.
Let’s start with most expirienced - Marinko. He’s been our Bootcamp Commander, MoD several times, Saoirse PP two times and he’s present on eIrish scene for at least full year, without and pauses or breakes. Nothing “dirty” hasn’t been connected with him so far, at least nothing proved. I’m p sure he’d be good President and he’d pull eIreland up.
Current President - Brian Boru just had pretty average term, nothing happened generally, we’ve been working to save some money. His biggest fault is letting “The Kunts” have their part in making decision, like for example new eIrish official irc channel. I’ve been banned from there just because I had argue with Padraig (when he was talking bout Vukovar), of course he wasn’t banned. Anyway, I’m sure BB would provide us another average month.
Mike Bane - Forever competitor. His new way of leading country is surely interesting, I’m not sure how good that would work, but we could give it a chance, only if it’s not Mike Bane. Nothing against that lad, but he tried for President so many times, he didn’t provided any ideas what he’ll do or what can we expect. I’m still waiting for that.
Irish Gawain - fairly new player, I consider him fairly inactive aswell. I’m sure he’s honest guy, but he should wait and play little more before trying to become most important role in one eCountry - President. There’s a lot of better potentional candidates who knows more about game mechanics and those who earned more trust then him. Good luck in future tho.
PTO of The Kunts
That was probably best day of my whole eLife. Why? The Kunts got what they’ve been doing for years, we beat them with their own weapon, we showed them they can’t walk away unpunished with things like theft or scamms. Who’s responsible for PTO? All patriotic eIrishmens who joined them and voted for Mr. Jack X. They’re talking about multis and I know each one of them has or had multis ( I can prove for most of them if needed, just ask in comment ).
They had such a nice attempt to try to make us look like Croatian PTOers of eIreland. No! Any eIrish citizen who’s been here more then knows that RL Croats in eIreland never done any harm to eIreland, we’ve been loyal eIrish citizens for over a two years, we always gave our best for eIreland, we never asked anything in return cept your welcome here. That’s the only truth. We helped kept Ireland active for past two years, we fought, we brought our friends to fight for Ireland, we never tried to form some kind of a group made only by RL Croats. Most of all iRL we’re Croats who love Ireland, and in this game we consider ourselves same eIrish as you are, because we harmed eIreland less then “The Kunts” who are so proud Irishmens.
Yes, “The Kunts” were PTOed, and yes I believe they’ve deserved it.
There’s been a lot of talk about our future membership. After we left EDEN officially we had two options - Asgard and CoT. When I’ve started negotiating with Asgard I could never say they would reject us. I had some plans to join together with eCanada (Of course if Irish people decide that on referendum), but after my term those plans falled apart somehow. I knew about opposition of that in Sweden, it’s one Swedish party who doesn’t want us in. Finland and Canada would be more then happy to see us with them in same alliance. I’m sure we could have solve things with that Swedish party if we really try and if we decide it’s best for us.
Why we shouldn’t join CoT?
Don’t you remember who’s been on our side all this years? Which countries always gave their best to keep Ireland secure. Our friends aren’t in CoT. There’s only one our friend there and it’s Bulgaria, we have a lot more friends in proEDEN side and by changing side we’d lose all of them. I still think leaving EDEN was a right thing to do. After that EDEN HQ was impeached, they’ve changed HQ because after we left they realised something is wrong there, nothing will stop EDEN from falling apart in my opinion, all countries are joining CoT now, I think they have more then 20 countries now, you think they need another more? They would give their best for one more? Look it long-termly, CoT doesn’t have much chances to stay alive for longer then a year maybe, that’s what my expirience in this game teached me. EDEN may be destroyed and weak, but EDEN members are friends to eachother and whatever happens they will stay friend, no matter in which alliance. We shouldn’t forget that.
Asgard may be perfect for us at this moment in my own opinion, but we’re not losing anything if we stay neutral and observe situation in eWorld, I don’t think we have any real threat to get invaded by anyone, Brits don’t need another war, our relations are pretty good lately, we can chill until we see what’s best for us, until some perfect opportunity comes to us. This game changes, don’t be blind and see those changes.
How to make Ireland better?
We have only 200 active people, it’s a lot easier to organise 200 of perfectly then it would be to organise more people in some bigger country. Why we don’t do that? I’m sure our richer citizens have enough rooms in their companies to employ 200 of us, it’s only 20 q7 companies, if we direct all taxes for raw I’m pretty sure we’d be grand, now think what we could do with donations, with some projects, only together we’d be able to rise this country from ashes.
There’s a lot of calculation to be made before I present anything seriously, but I’ll publish another article with exact numbers and ideas how something like All Ireland’s hub would work, we have good chance to build something from our country, we just have to try, we just have to remove every dead wood from our country. I’ll talk more about this topic soon, this is all for today, I’d just like to hear your opinion about something like this? So feel free to comment!
