PostSubject: Teach me about International eRep Politics   Sat Apr 14, 2012 9:29 pm

It has occurred to me that my knowledge about international affairs is lacking. And I figure this is probably also true of other new players.

So I kindly request our more experienced players to fill in the details.

Such as:

--What are the different alliances, how are they associated with each other, and how did they come about? (basically some history)
--Who have been our staunchest allies, which ones have been more tenuous, etc.
--What are the current conflicts/debates/happenings to keep an eye on?

etc.

Thanks in advice.

The world has continuously been split around: Romania, Croatia, Albania vs Serbia, Hungary, Indonesia honestly (although I don't hear much from Indonesia these days)


Romania use to be a super power that controlled all of Eastern Europe, Russia, and China. They were the head of an alliance called Atlantis (US was a member of this alliance). PEACE started up centered around Hungary to counteract Romanian expansion. World War I started mid/late 2008 when Romania invaded Hungary. This war was a draw and the two sides were at a cold war


World War II was also between Atlantis and PEACE when Spain, US, Canada, and the UK invaded France in December of 08, Brazil and Indonesia invaded Argentina. It was ultimately a disaster, Operation French Toast failed, and Romania lost its asian colonies to Hungary and Indonesia


Atlantis fell apart due to internal conflict surrounding Germany when Sweden and Poland got greedy and invaded one of their own members. UK also switched sides over to PEACE during this time too... From the Ashes EDEN and FORTIS were built. (FORTIS was US based)


World War III was a PEACE invasion of North America, 1st time the US was ransacked (we were reduced to just Florida)

France occupied most of Canada, Iran took a region in the Arctic, Indonesia Occupied the Hawaii & Southwest of the US, Russia occupied Alaska and the Northwest of the US, Portugal occupied the South, Hungary occupied the North, UK took up some positions within the US and Canada.

We barely overturned the invasion and began pushing them out of the continent. There was huge disagreements when we were left with one region whether they should accept President Emerick's surrender or keep fighting. They ultimately rejected our surrender and pushed to occupy Florida... That's when we started winning and so the disagreement got personal and lead to a break up of PEACE and from there Phoenix was born. (I don't remember who the hardliners were but it split the entire leadership)


World War IV was the EDEN invasion of Asia against Phoenix. We kicked out Hungary and Indonesia's holdings on the continent and gave independence to China and North Korea. We had a colony in India for a good while after this.


We're on World War V right now (started when Poland and Spain switched sides) you know the rest

So the nations in black and grey are the "Nobody Nations" because they don't have an alliance. (Or perhaps wiped off the map because they're territories of a different nation?)

Or maybe I should call them the "Bastard Nations".

They are usually allies with nations of a certain alliance, but not in the alliance per say, and most of the time have their wars between each other.

Example: Right now, Chile, Peru, and New Zealand are fighting Argentina, but Chile is allied with Bulgaria and several other top notch nations that aren't in "official" alliances either. So there are many alliance systems out there, they just haven't been organized and named, but are still effective.

They want native players from those countries to play, I guess they figure they aren't going to get alot of users from Libya or etc. (go explain North Korea though)

I'm guessing that fighting inside the alliances is not entirely off limits because I see that USA and France are both in TERRA yet we are constantly at war with them. And also I noticed that Canada is listed in both EDEN and TERRA.

Rick y u list ABC as a minor alliance. ABC is the biggest, strongest and most important alliance there is and ever has been or will be in this game. I will make my Soviet broskis proud!

So TERRA and EDEN are distinct alliance, but basically on the same side in this war? Why then are they separate?

because the PANAM people felt that EDEN was too eurocentric, and split to make a solely american allience, which quickly changed into something very eurocentric.

Europe is a powder keg of drama
you can blame Albania, Serbia, Croatia, Hungary, Romania, Poland, and Turkey for it

So what does start most of these wars? Resource bonuses, sombody slighted someone else, or is down to just warring to be warring?

Also I've been looking for info on resistance wars and found little. Is it when a country tries to take back territory that was originally theirs? Say for example since Aquitaine was originally part of France and we occupy it they start a RW against us trying to take it back? And what happens if say Spain should take Aquitaine from us then would we be able to start a RW or would France still be able to start one?

Inquiring minds want to know.

a ressistance war can only be in the name of the origanal territory owner. A french settlment no matter how many times it switches hands will always be a French settlment , persay. If a resistance war is founded by players who are present in that territory , and the resistance wins. It insantly becomes french again...

no you cant start a french resistance war in a french accupied territory ,,, YET ! Razz

Well you can start a RW if you move to that territory, regardless of your citizenship. So if Spain takes Aquitaine, you can move to Aquitaine and fund the RW, but you'd be fighting for France, not USA.
