Commanders. In one seven mikes the ATTACK thread will be unlocked, and the second attack window will be open for 24Hs.

Some countries will be founded. Others will double in size. Still others will falter as the signal flares ascend. Nations almost born... after days of planning and preparation, they will fall back on tired excuses, their citizens will be the hapless victims of indecision.

But I think it is a safe bet that on MONDAY the world will smaller, and more crowded. Rifle muzzle and bayonet will almost touch those of the enemy on the other side of the front tear.

Wait when warranted, and exploit opportunity when it shows itself. This, I think will be the last of the bloodless windows. For in the week ahead... the clash of armies will be all but inevitable.

Those who use this time for growth will pull ahead, and those who shuffle and dither will be begin to feel the weight of their error sooner than they had expected.

I wonder what sort of world you will all create.

Everyone,
Sorry for the interruption here, so allow me to be blunt and to the point. I regrettably cannot stay in this group... My family schedule this summer is incredibly packed. We will be gone for most of summer, distancing me from my beloved Lego collection. Awfully hard to rule a nation with no army :) But anyway, I wish I could stay and participate in these events. This has to be the most organized and well-run "war group" I've been in, and I do hope it will continue to remain so until it closes. I will delete my conversation posts when I leave. Thanks!

Life will always intrude. Sorry to hear you will not be a part of this venture.

But I urge you to retain your membership, and your ability to participate in our dialogues. Don't feel compelled to delet a single word!

Let your nation fall to the flames, but do stay for the banter!

Regardless of your decision, I am glad we drew your attention however briefly.

I'm sure you are all having fun, playing DA, attacking and claiming and such, but due to a hole in the rules, I can not escape my territory.
I was led to believe that Territory AA, would be applicable to the Island rule, where you can attack a coastal territory in the first attack. But its not, a fact that was never made clear.
And the rules now say I can do nothing about it, nor escape my icy isolation.
However I can do something now, the DAS, have said if I can get a majority of you to support my plea to allow a minor change in rules, to allow AA to be treated like an coastal island, then they will go with the majority.

But its not, a fact that was never made clear.

And the rules now say


DAS, have said if I can get a majority of you to support my plea to allow a minor change in rules, to allow AA to be treated like an coastal island, then they will go with the majority.


General Hayden.

Get your facts straight.

In order:
1. "due to a hole in the rules, "
1A. There is no hole in the rules. You just did not understand either the rule or what the word island means.

2. "I was led to believe that Territory AA, would be applicable to the Island rule"
2A. Led to believe by who? Nobody on DAS. Who led you to believe that AA was an island?

3. "But its not, a fact that was never made clear."
3A. If this fact was never made clear to you, you should blame your geography teacher, not DAS. We write the rules and run the game. Your schooling is beyond our scope of responsibility.

4. DAS, have said if I can get a majority of you to support my plea to allow a minor change in rules, to allow AA to be treated like an coastal island, then they will go with the majority.
4A. If the majority of players don't disagree with the notion, I will consider bending a rule in order to allow you to play. (Read "Harsh Truths about DA" on the home page.)

You put your self in a box because of your own blunder Hayden.

Don't try to make it somebody else's fault, and don't start talking about who is obligated to do what.

The dialogue where this issue was explained to you (before you went ahead and made your error) is a matter of record rite here on this site, so watch your claims.

I look forward to resolving this issue after having reviewed the input from the other commanders and having taken time to reflect on the best course of action.

Possibly you could count AA as three coastal territories since it is so big. Or just divide it in three. Either way, the only way he could get out is by SA9 which someone already has, so he'd have to battle his way out.

General X.

You are thinking in the right direction. But I am going to go with a simpler course of action.

Thanks to all the generals who have taken the time to express their opinion over the weekend. Your responses range from focused and constructive (like General X here) to the flippant and uninformed, to the downright mercenary. But each commander who said anything had to take the time to do so. Well done.

General Hayden is currently languishing in a self imposed exile at the bottom of the world. His nation has emerged from the Antarctic wastes only to discover that they are legally incapable of escape or growth. But a recent tectonic event gives cause for hope.

Due to a sudden and scientifically unexplainable event, Antarctica is now considered to be an island off the coast of territory SA9.

General Hayden can now fight his way to a better tomorrow.

I wonder what the leadership of the Peoples DeMOCratic Republic of Bagunga will think of this revelation? Only by their military defeat can the United Polar Kingdom hope to expand.

Thank you all once again for your input, and the updated map will be published shortly.

So, all the titans postpone their warring, and turn the rest of the world into their food. They will sup on weak, and only in the 11th hour will they finally turn on one another.

Commanders.

Several of you have engaged in, or asked about, enforcing rules in DA.

It is a touchy subject, but one that involved players will always be interested in.

Is it OK for players to provide guidance or advice regarding rules, to other players?

Yes... and No.

Yes, giving the new guy, the confused guy, or the flat our wrong guy accurate advice about the rules is a good thing. It's part of being an active member. You are intelligent, and you not only want to play the game, but you want to help others play as well. Good on you! Don't ever change.

BUT...

You should only provide advice or recommendations. You should not provide RULINGS or GUIDANCE. You may know the rules, but you are not in a position to call penalties, or issue "Legal" or "Illegal" rulings. It's just like Football. Everybody on the field knows the rules... but only the ref' can blow the whistle.

So all of you, stay involved, and stay helpful. (Right on!). Just don't try to do the DAS job.

I hope this is clear enough.
Rules = Order and Justice.

To whom are you speaking? Anybody in particular?

It's not a rule, but you should always start a written thought with a greeting. This is polite AND it lets everybody know who you are talking to.

If you are in fact, talking to everybody, open with something that gives us a clue about that. something like "Hey everybody" or "All" or "Fellow commanders".

Mr. C.

It may look like a lot of rules, but there is a pretty basic sturcture, that is easy to follow.

I reccomend you go first to the thread entitles "Founding Your Nation". Read that, follow the steps to get started. It's easy.

Then, go to the thread entitled "Rules". It's locked, so the only thing there is the "Stuff you need to know."

If you want to be even more guru, then take a look at the Group Home text at the bottom of the page.

Besides, if I am annoyed at a specific player you KNOW I will call them out by name!

No, you guys are all doing good stuff on the threads.

The only DANGER is when anybody starts to use language like "That IS NOT ALLOWED" or "That IS LEGAL."

Seek the balance in the middle. Be engaged, and when you see a question, and direct the guy (or gal) to the appropriate rules post.

I want all of you commanders to stay in the fight, and help one another. There are so many of us now, that my tiny staff and I are hopping and popping from dawn to dusk to keep up with the message traffic.

THE FOLLOWING IS A DECISIVE ACTION NEWS UPDATE.
Date Line Earth. Exactly 7 days after the first wave of attacks shattered the peace on nearly every continent, a second wave of industrial violence ripped across our small planet. Every continent on earth now trembles beneath marching boots. Soldiers from 22 nations have now been mobilized. Experts agree, this is the beginning of a conflagration which will start to consume entire nations in the weeks ahead. Even as the smoke of a thousand factories blots out the sun, nations are banding together into large power blocks, desperate to secure their future in the safety of numbers.
The 7th day of June, 2013. The day the generals of the world are now calling AW 2 (for attack window number 2) proved to be eventful day indeed.
Eight nations have doubled in size.
More than 8 new nations have emerged to send troops marching towards distant horizons.
Several nations were caught unprepared by the sudden arrival of Friday (hidden as it was, behind Thursday this week). These nations stumbled as they marched, missing the opportunity to expand. The South African Task Force and the Fourth Reich, both members of the much acclaimed GWC will no doubt be ready to storm the gates of competence and achieve positive national growth in time for the next Attack Window on 14 June 2013.
Against the backdrop of scrambling nations and rising battle flags, two nations stood against the tide of expansion, astounding the world with their restraint. Neither United Ninja nor the Federal European Nation States declared attacks during this window. United Ninja is a mysterious nation, steeped in the wisdom of the Far East. As for FENS, this nation is the most powerful nation in the GWC. Early two week ago, the GWC was labeled my many observers as the most powerful TO in the world. Three of the GWCs most outspoken generals have forgone attacks in this window, and now many analysts speculate that the GWC is in fact perusing a policy of “Crypto-Non-Aggression” (or hidden non aggression). Peace activists have praised this Treaty organization for its emergent strategy on non-expansion. However, others argue that this is actually the result of poor internal coordination and may indicate a rift within this rhetorically aggressive cabal.
One of the newer nations, the Eastern Pyrenees Command, engaged in what can only be described as a major diplomatic offensive. Their commander, the enigmatic General Electric, has established himself as an aggressive and effective yellow head producer. Few debate this general’s ability to maximize yellow head power for himself and his allies. But many human rights activists call his methods mercenary and manipulative. Regardless, most analysts agree, General Electric has emerged as an opinion leader in the diplomatic field, and his focus is unarguably strategic in nature.
This just in from the Economics Desk: Global military production continues to increase at an astounding rate. There are currently 79 individual military MOCs in the pool, all of which were built specifically for this war. The Global Exchange has yet to calculate their total yellow head value, but it is thought to exceed 200.

Two headlines from the Science Desk tonight: First, The global population is also still growing at rates beyond that predicted by DAS. 6 members joined DA in the last 48 hours, bringing the total population to 55.
And we close this broadcast with this astounding second fact from the Science Desk. We all know that Pluto is no longer a planet… but did you know that Antarctica is no longer a cotenant? Well, it’s true. Apparently, the tramp of the army of the United Polar Kingdoms boots has broken off so much ice from the bottom of the world, that the 7th continent is now simply an island at the bottom of the world. The newly classified island now affords that nation two opportunities for expansion. Even in these dark times, we continue to lean new and exciting things about this, our home.

These updates are really some of the most fun the DAS gets to have on the site. We are normally to busy keeping the engine running and putting out fires to offer this sort of colorful rhetoric.

"Well, first off, the GWC's lack of aggression is all part of the plan. What is that plan, you might ask? Well, quite simply, I'm not going to tell you. Secondly, General Squid's military computer hardware was undergoing extensive updates to the system, and delayed the attack. BUT I have received word that the computer system IS back online and he will be able to attack next week! There is no power struggle within the GWC, where would you get an idea like that? Hehe he he, yup. And lastly, I quite enjoy reading Marvel comics, and am currently reading the Civil War comic series right now, thanks for asking!
