Good afternoon! Thank you all for joining us here in the Generals Lounge. Grab a cup of coffee, and join us as we sit around and talk about "General Topics!"

See that is funny... because it means two things at once.

General like "generic"

OR

General like "of or pertaining to Generals"

Hey... is this microphone on?

All Commanders:

I draw your attention to the MOCpages banner at the top of your screen.

Text reads:
MOCpages will be offline Friday night, 28-June 2013 while we install new servers.
Text ends.

So... ummmm... AW5 is here by officially postponed until Midnight Saturday, 29 June (Mocpages time).

IF...

MOCpages is still offline at that time, the next window will be Midnight Sunday 30 June.

Not before time for the new servers. But why not move the AW forward 12 hours instead, to get it over and done with before the outage? Assuming Keith can get on a computer at midday, of course.

The time the outage will begin is vague (PM on a certain day), and pushing it back to the next midnight allows us to provide all players (and the DAS) with a tiny bit of predictability.

Besides, I think all the players can stay cruel, greedy, and power hungry for the additional time.

General Criatori.

In order:
Q1. But I see you have addressed the notice?
A1. Yep (because no question should have to live life unanswered).

Q2. Should I assume we are using the usual 12:00 am to 12:00 am interval?
A2. Yep.

Q3. Oh, and why the $#^% do we not use 24 hour time! :)
A3. Because we want our time references to correspond with the MOCpages time tags at the bottom of every post. MOCpages time is DA "Zulu time." It is the same for every player, and it is beyond the control of any participant in the DA event (DAS and Generals alike)

Hope that helps.

General Otiosus.

You jump to polarization to quickly. The DA world is still not at the Mice vs Titans stage yet. The power is still spread between many players. It is a question of coordination.

Think about how fast any band of confederates can form, strike at a celebrity general, and then disperse again.

The weakest player on the map, can reduce the most powerful defenders power by HALF, just by being in on a combined attack.

That mathematical fact does not support your conclusions of that some have already attained invulnerability.

The real room for doubt resides in whether or not players are willing to establish communications, decide on a plan, and then execute a coordinated attack.

If that is done, three or four little guys can each gain a slice of superpower steak in one AW.

OCT 31 is months away, and the DA strategic dynamic is far from stable.

General O.

Glad to hear from you again. Remember, you already have a tank, so you can still attack without building anything new. Last AW, you missed an opportunity for growth. All you would have had to do is declare an attack.

But you are right about one thing: If you haven't maxed your defensive power by building MOCs... then you really should start!

Welcome back!

General Otiosus.

If there are three superpowers, there can still be a chance, but in a case of two supepowers, there will be three hundred defence points to each nation. Looking at about 20 or 30 attack power per nation, only the most powerful generals have a chance of conquering a territory - if a coordinated attack includes five or six nations attacking one enemy. With the current filled-up map, that seems near impossibility.

And if a superpower starts kicking out its weakest links, they may even form an alliance of their own, which could prove even less vulnerable, since the weakest players feel the most endangered.

I know the math. But there is more than math to this game.

Dateline the Colorado Confederacy

It appears that Denver has come under direct attack. Communications outlets normally open to GINN have been shut down, the borders are closed and all broadcast media are showing Celtic dance programing. But this is not fooling anyone. Glomshire has graciously provided satellite information that clearly (but grainy) pictures a coordinated attack against the Denver Megalopolis reaching as far as the Englewood area but being turned back. Denver still is denying neither a civil uprising nor that there are any problems within the Confederacy.
Some of the last families to make it across to emergency refugee camps set up near the border indicate that a new group has surfaced and has absorbed all the prior cabals and organizations of resistance. There are unsubstantiated indications that the new group is as well armed as the current administration and may even be made up of former military and civil leaders who stand in direct conflict with the ruling administration. More information as it becomes available.

when the opportunity next presents itself


General Electric.

Please sir...

You? "Wait" for an opportunity… to present itself? I wager that you have already selected your next opportunity. Further, that you will move quite deliberately into attack position (this taking a week or maybe two), and at the moment which affords you the greatest benefit, you will emerge quickly from shadow, enfold your prey within your hooked and horned grasping appendages, and devour them whole. After feeding, you will not retreat into shadow, but rather, the shadows will swell and darken around you where you stand.

Then silence. Perhaps the faint rustle of an empty shopping bag tumbling past in the warm smoke laden breeze.

Your "opportunities" do not present themselves General. They are carefully selected. There days numbered long before they know it.

I have my bet placed, regarding the identity of your next opportunity, but I shant reveal my horses name. Suffice it to say, Mr. Goldman and I differ in opinion on this matter, and therein lies the sport for those few who can't play!

You had it good in the GWC and STUDS, but you threw it all away for an alliance that failed miserably. We warned you it would happen on countless occasions, but you ignored us.

You and I have rated and commented on their models in the hopes of getting on their good side, to get into their alliances, or even for personal benefit! Woe to us for WE HAVE CREATED OUR OWN DESTRUCTION!!! By rating and commenting on their models we have made superpowers that only tolerate us as long as we do not get in the way of their master plan! As soon as we do (for all will surely block the way to victory) they will crush us like a flea under the heel of their tyrannical jackboot to be blown away like chaff on the wind! We have simply become the means of our own destruction!

But, THERE IS ALWAYS HOPE. We do not have to put up with such dictatorial, tyrannical, and generally evil behavior! We, the minor generals of the world have several options. First, we can tear down the superpowers of the world! Unrating their creations and deleting our comments can accomplish this. This will bring them down to our level so that they can be eaten up like raw meat set in front of a pack of hungry wolves. The second option is too make ourselves into the superpowers.

We DO NOT have to cringe with fear in the presence of these superpowers waiting and hoping that you are not the next meal!

I don't think he is lashing out at you guys for having a "bad" alliance, you guys have it great! You guys have great members and almost everyone is scared of you guys, especially McLegoFreak! He is only lashing out because he thought for sure you guys would take him in, and now he is stuck with NO allies what-so-ever! Now he is desperately trying to get back into the safety of the alliances he betrayed before the doors close, and he is stuck on the outside begging to get in, and the 2TA eats him alive! So kudos to you guys, for being the "superpower" of this game, leaving helpless generals to die out in the wilderness, alone.

Quoting ~ McLegofreak

Dear General Electric,

You have made several faulty arguments and or assumptions. 1. You called me McLegoburger as if I was simply to weak and was soon to be eaten. YOU ARE WRONG!!! I have friends General Electric, something that you will never have. 2. You believe that I will join 2TA. YOU ARE WRONG!!! I am not foolish enough to join a repressive, tyrannical alliance like the 2TA! The cost of giving up all freedom is simply TOO HIGH!!! 3. You have threatened to make my life miserable if I remove any smilies. For this I must refer you to my comment on the dictatorial behavior of world superpowers. I hope I have cleared up this mess. I tip my hat to you and say good day.

PEACE THROUGH STRENGTH, STRENGTH THROUGH WAR.
~ General McLegofreak

P.S. For anyone else who is watching this exchange DO NOT JOIN 2TA!!! The COST IS WAY TO HIGH!!!

P.S.S. For anyone seeking a delicious lunch at an affordable price... eat at Goldman’s Taco Shack!

Still, I have to say that its refreshing to see a guy just cut lose and "Go for it!" Start waving the blood stained banners of discontent and yelling crazy talk with real passion.

General Marshall.

I think you are about half correct on this assessment.

It is true that General McLegofreak is lashing out because he feels betrayed.

And it is true that General McLegofreak is lashing out at the strongest TO.

And it is true that General McLegofreak has no friends at the moment.

But you ignore some relevant truths. For example:

In DA, nobody dies alone. Your enemy is with you when you die!

Also...

He is right that the many small nations can still punish the cruel giants if they act in unison.

He is right in claiming that the mad rush for safety under the skirts of giants is what has propelled those giants to their current positions of power. YOU are their source of strength. And YOU can take much of that strength away from them.

He is right in reminding the smaller nations that there is always hope (although I might have phrased it this way: The balance of power is not stable).

And you also fail to mention…

Nobody in this entire fascinating dialogue has noted the interesting historical fact that General McLegofreak was himself in a TO with the Generals Hammond until right before he attempted to feed upon General Hammond the Lesser. Or that General Hammond the Greater, attempted to coordinate a cooperative growth plan with General McLegofreak before McLegofreak boxed in General Hammond the Lesser by taking SA10.

In the end, despite the legitimacy of General McLegofreaks attempt to "re-empower" the smaller nations of the world, his message will most likely fall on deaf ears due to his chronic lack of "Ethical Credibility" (AKA, his reputation as a back stabber).

But Generals of the world I bid you: Pay some attention to what truth does reside in General McLegofreaks words: Unless you desire to feed the giants with your own flesh, you can... and must... begin chopping at them... and soon.

Piranhas can and do eat jungle cats.

GINN -- Reporting from the border just outside of the Colorado Confederacy

Shots were fired and a long firefight took place just moments ago at a border crossing facility. no information is forthcoming at this time. Again, reporters witnessed and heard large explosions and small arms fire lasting nearly 20 minutes on the border with Glomshire.

More information as it becomes available.

GINN News Alert


ALERT -- ALERT -- ALERT
Breaking News -- Breaking News

All contact has been lost to the Colorado Confederacy. It has gone completely dark. Radio, TV, microwave, internet, all activity has been interrupted. A final all media broadcast was placed just prior to this event and the implications are astonishing. A single enigmatic phrase was presented prior to the blackout.

"Denver will fall in 24 hours."

We now return you to regular programming; this has been a GINN news alert.

Remember, you are jumping back in after a period of relative inactivity.

Also... most of this is just hot air.

Tonight on WORLD WATCH!…

We are talking to retired General Aqueous Cobalt, the former commander of the now disbanded militant ecological group known as The Equatorial Equalizers. I’m Bec De’Corban and your watching WORL WATCH!

General Cobalt, thank you for joining us tonight.

Thank you Bec. I’ve been watching the show for years, and I have to tell you, I’m very excited to be here.

Well then you know how this works. Let’s get to it!

Yea man, lets do it!

General Cobalt… Colorado.

I love it Bec. It’s beautiful.

It certainly is, General… but is war beautiful?

What? No way Bec. War sucks!

Yes, that is so true general. But WORLD WATCH! has reason to believe that the Colorado Confederacy is in the midst of a savage civil war. What is your take on the situation?

I don't know man. What “reason to believe?”

I’m sorry?

Hey, don’t be sorry Bec, unless you started it! Ha ha! But for real Bec... What “reasons” to believe do you have? What makes you think there is a civil war going on?

Well General… surly you have seen the reports from GINN, the gunfire, the refugees…

Ohhh! no way Bec! You’re just going off of what GINN tells you? You don’t have like, I don’t know, a guy on the ground with a sat phone? Or… some cool pictures from some shady government official who you bribed, or maybe some cool environmental indicators… like massive clouds of smoke from burning crops and cities?

Well no... but WORLD WA...

Hold on Bec! Hold on! No independent verification at all? Man Bec! Don’t you know? The MAN in Colorado owns GINN. Heck Bec! The MAN owns the media. The media is the MANs priviate megaphone Bec! Why am I telling you! You know this! YOU work for the MAN! Let me tell you something Bec, because I’m a big fan, and I love this show and all. Bec…The MAN lies! The MAN lies Bec. Those Colorado Whack Jobs up there… Man Bec… They just WANT you to be all agitated and curious about some phantom civil war… so that you are distracted from some massive NEW PLAN. See Bec, I fought the MAN for three decades in TEE. And in all that time, if I learned one thing it's this: the MAN always has a PLAN. And when he springs it… BAM! Know what I mean when I say BAM Bec? BAM! Suddenly you’re on the wrong side of the man’s plan. The WRONG side Bec. WRONGO!

So… General, you say this is all some sort of massive disinformation campaign. A ruse of some sort by the Colorado Confederacy?

BAMZactly Bec.

There you have it ladies and gentlemen. I’m Bec De’Corbin and we have been talking tonight with General Aqueous Cobalt. Thank you for joining us for tonight’s edition of WORLD WATCH!
