Revealing private conversations is indeed crossing the line...........Windjammer,I am disappointed

I would like to state that my intial post towards you- Windjammer- came across a bit strong.....it was more friendly sh**t talk then accusatory toward an enemy, even though I do believe you should have addressed this privately,perhaps I should have done the same to you

I will of course be supporting Lumine and Goldwater in no particular order....I also look favorably on Shua and Polnut and a few of the others,but those are the closest to my viewpoints

Excellent to see this continuing, the election tracker was one of the highlights of a what often seemed like a disappointingly boring election season.

Compared to the previous two, how was this one boring?

The last one was pretty dull too, but you clearly don't remember the Labor convention drama after Bacon King dropped out in October '13.

You're right; I do not. Still, if it was at all interesting I think I would remember it. Tongue
Our election a couple years ago surely wasn't boring, was it buddy? :-)

Those are the major players at that point in real history.....this is not the real world. As my buddy Kalwejt said,there are decisions I made here that preceded real world decisions by 15 or so years, and therefore took effect much earlier
12  Forum Community / Election and History Games / Re: Balance of Power (Sign Up/Rules/Commentary Thread) on: June 26, 2014, 02:24:30 pm
Define "major player"......

The only players in this game are the major powers.....it is not as if any player is building Portugal into a superpower in 5 years

I did not say you should resign nor did I say you should have a bias- I said you undermined Lumine. Your disagreements with him should be expressed privately, that is what a "deputy" or an "assistant" does...you are correct that it is your duty to speak with Lumine if you speak he has made a mistake, but not publicly criticize his decisions

I am stunned that there is any adverse reaction to this.........Iran sponsored TERRORISM....people are dead- innocent people- due to their actions. They deserve the same treament,not merely taking away their website, yet some of you people act as though we are nuking Tehran

It's been being executed already.....the name wasn't announced,but you'll notice the strategy is similar. I dropped no bombshell here

As you all know- I am a frank talker, so here we go....

Windjammer, pal- you are a good fellow, I like you, but your public criticisms of Lumine's decisions are total bullsh**t... You are his #2 and should not be undermining him publicly, first of all. Secondly- what else do we have to go by then what Lumine tells us is the reality? If we have to doubt his decisions,what point is there in continuing this game? I may be a genius businessman but in Monopoly if I get a few bad rolls, I am bankrupt. He runs this game his way- and the basic premise we accept to play it is that what he says goes, and I do not appreciate you casting doubt on that premise to ruin this game. I did not protest whenever I disagreed with his decisions even if they cast the USA in a bad light, and I would appreciate you not adding doubt to the game



Also.......as others have pointed out, my primary goal as the USA has been expanding our military might. I have strategically placed my forces across the world knowing this would be the goal........of course,this is "out of character', but I even sent the Wikipedia article of "War Plan Red" to Lumine at the start of the game to explain my overall strategy. War Plan Red was a pre-WWII war plan by the USA to defeat the British if we ended up opposing them in a conflict.....it is past the date in which this game is played, but it describes the strategy the USA would have taken. I have been planning for war with Britain since the start of this game....again, this is "out of character" but I believe this has already been guessed. My actions in the game have been taken accordingly, and I do not believe attacks on the USA's actions in the "real world" are relevant to what all of us have done in this alternate history

Recall that there is also an overwhelming number of Italian and American troops present to support the German-led invasion

Perhaps you could have not set up our economy initially to have half our states reliant on slave labor.....that was a system you put in place, sot hat we could grow you cotton and tobacco for you Brits to either consume yourselves or sell for a high profit off the hard work of the slaves you brought to us

Perhaps you would realize that I spent the Civil War aiding the man who freed the slaves.... I was there when he signed the Emancipation Proclamation...I was there for him to hear the results of each battle.....I know what happened, and I know what side of history I was on
21  Forum Community / Election and History Games / Re: Balance of Power (Gameplay Thread) - Early 1905 (Russia under siege!) on: June 24, 2014, 11:59:33 pm
1- Our land was not the only ones you colonized....tell the Africans, Arabs, and Indians you rule that you have never committed genocide on their land. Boer War, any one HuhHuh?

2- Who introduced the slave trade to my land? You! who practiced it for centuries before we did? YOU!

3- If by legal, you mean conquest, then I even question the English knowledge of the English language!

Yes, Spamage....I recommend capitulation ;-)

Britain has never massacred natives, held slaves, or taken the land of other nations?

This memory lapse only makes me wonder if I am dealing with a sane man in Mr. Balfour....
