I had a couple of stalemates, but all my fault. Mis-calculated the required power (manually  19).

But be aware they're tougher cookies than you'd expect at first sight.  19

Friendly reminder to LOEP to avoid their all-famous God complex...

[blah blah]
We hold all the cards here

Pot. Kettle. Black.

But I guess you just had to rear your inbred head.

Just to clarify: I'm not here to broker any kind of deal. Like I said: I'm done with politics.
I appreciate everyone wants to play the game the way they see fit. That used to work, until the balance was upset by methods that are arguably a federal crime in the real world. Ultimately, three people were willing to stand up to that. The rest de facto accepted the events of late 2020 by their failure to at the very least continue to actively hunt down the main culprit. It is well documented that many did so because they were, and perhaps still are, incapable of defending their own interests. In doing so, they pushed away the best intel gathering and pre-emptive strike capability in AG.
Ironically, this could now lead to direct conflict between two sides who can hurt each other far more than the root cause of this BS ever could (not least because most of us are, at the very least, capable of producing our own combat gear rather than having to steal it). But I won't be negotiating anything on anyone's behalf other than my own. And from my point of view, *I* am (partially) stopped from mining claims I paid for, which have therefore become my in-game property. The only thing I will make sure of, is that I *can* continue my way of playing the game. I understand others will not be happy with some of CH's actions, but that must be taken up with him. I will not be a pawn in such a game of chess. By trying to force me into such a role through mining blockades, I'll only be pushed further towards the hawks. If, for the sake of protecting less evolved Senators, an uncomfortable co-existance with the likes of caker was chosen, I would urge SPQNR to consider what damage *I* could do when actively sabotaging anyone's operations.

Would that be the same influence that let a 5-0 lead slip through its fingers when the Senate voted on Scorched Earth?
I think that was the last time I tried politics in AG.  19

You know how much I value loyalty. It takes a lot (so I guess I'll have to give credit to caker for achieving that) to leave my team. And LOEP is my team now. Even a full-scale war with SPQNR will not change that. Nor will it change the fact I'd be delighted to share a few pints or a fine wine with youse at any time. But it seems inevitable our AG paths have diverged too far to avoid in-game conflict.

Like I said: personally, I won't attack mining units that are accompanied by a ship or station in orbit. If they're not: I hope it won't be more than mk-I units that prevent me from mining deposits I paid for.

"That's hundreds of planets that are not being mined, but where every player in the game has to avoid placing any mining units, just in case one of you guys wants to get round to mining them."

Not the case. If SPQNR, or anyone else, were properly mining something there, you wouldn't hear anything from me. The fact, however, is that those units were placed there in response to CH putting up a marker. A marker, as everyone is aware of, is NOT a claim to an entire planet, but to a specific deposit. Now, those deposits AREN'T being mined by those filler mods. Which is just as well, because THAT would be considered an act of war after the various warnings given on this issue. Which, incidentally, pre-date the moment CH may or may not have made COM life more difficult for SPQNR.

It was never our intention to break up with SPQNR, but the unfortunate fact is, that the backtracking on the Scorched Earth proposal ensured the once glorious Republic became a soft target for c*nts like caker. With whom SPQNR relations seem remarkably cordial these days. CH and I *haven't* forgotten his crimes, and AG's reluctance to correct them. If it's a pirate's game they (Sir Emi included) desire, a pirate's game they'll get.

Personally, I've not knowingly frustrated the Senate's cause so far, but consider this my notice to you that the opposite (SPQNR frustrating my cause) is now increasingly the case. That requires a counter reaction. The severity of which will be proportional to the trouble it gives me. I do not intend to blow blocking units that are actively watched by an SPQNR ship or station. That, to me, would signal it is a bonafide mining operation, not an economic blockade. Unaccompanied mining units will be treated as the latter.

Furthermore, I should like to add that "cheating" is a point of view. No one in SPQNR seemed to have a problem with automated deposit finding or intel gathering when it suited New Rome and its growth objectives. Nor does the formal rule on not exploiting flaws in the game (Dark COMs, anyone?) appear to be included in SPQNR's current view on what constitutes cheating.

On a final note: we don't hate the game. We hate the fact that its mechanics do not allow proper dealing with thieves. There used to be a time all Romans agreed on that.

Recently, I've noticed several inactive mining units have covered entire planets, shortly after a solitary marker was placed there under the mining covenant and etiquette.

These blockades are a significant nuisance to my mining operations, to the point where I shall henceforth consider them a form of economic warfare. I will allow captains 24 hours to remove such blockades. From 06:00 UTC on 9 April 2022, I reserve the right to execute special military operations to secure my interests.

Reading comprehension obviously still well below par, I see.
Though I guess for someone whose IQ/shoe size gap is measured in single digits, you're not that bad.

10 QP?  laugh

Cheap wh0re. Let me quintuple that for a start. 50 QP for those who succesfully play the role of Judas Iscariot and disclose our whereabouts to this wannabe, who is both too lazy to as well as utterly incapable of doing his own recce.

No need to increase the "bounty" for a profitable attack: it wouldn't be. Neither for spacecake, nor for those aiding his lost cause.

Over at LOEP, we'll happily kill him for free/fun.

" No clue what they're up to"

Nope, cos your alts don't get in.

Scorched Earth it is, and will remain.

Belated congratulations. LOEP sends you a crate of our finest rum!
13  General Talk / General Discussion / Re: Mutual Mining Agreement on: July 11, 2021, 11:47:18 AM
In LOEP, we have respected SPQNR-era treaties, but if that's the case, then I won't wait for the results of any external vote. I will now go full Teddy KGB mode and do whatever I please, whenever the f*ck I please.  12

AG is now in "Kill them all and let God sort them out" mode.
