The whole situation between PL and the NC seems pretty typical atm. PL and their ~elite~ tengu fleet are slaughtering the NC and the NC don't know what to do. The fact that PL thinks it has anything to do with them being good is sort of funny. Its pretty much going to end up being the same sort of cycle as that Tri went through in this case.
PL owns the shit out of NC for a while > NC comes up with a semi-effective counter > PL stops fighting because they are actually losing people in fights
tl:dr PL are the new Triumvirate only they post worse.
I'm still a little butt hurt from getting kicked out, thats all!
Geminate residents who are NC or NC aligned. You be the judge of failcascade. I'd give the MAGE alliances another week or so to let the reality of lost stations sink in before saying one way or another.
Also, reading through threads like this is great for getting to know which alliances are a little bit less retarded than the others when looking for a new home.
My RL friends have finally thrown in the towel, freeing me from the misplaced loyalty I had to a dead corp of people who never logged in.
Sounds like you're ready for TEST
With respect to ancient Rome, dignitas was regarded as the sum of the personal clout and influence that a male citizen acquired throughout his life. When weighing the dignitas of a particular individual, factors such as personal reputation, moral standing, and ethical worth had to be considered, along with the man's entitlement to respect and proper treatment.
Or someone who actually has jabber installed can bother reading PL's publicly available theorycrafting thread on Thundercats.
Maybe a clue can be found within...
Completely unrelated topic, can we get a widely accepted breakdown on who is on what NC team. Much mention is made of C/D-Teams, but who the hell is B-team? And does it stop at D, or go all the way to F?
rage/me are so bad you could kill their 200 man gang with 20 competent tempests; you don't need 100 tengus.
The problem with the nc is that they are cowards; they won't fight with subcaps let alone supers until they have a massive blob advantage. PL see the weakness and they attack, they stand out as defensless prey ready to run at the sight of their predator; cowards always lose in the end because they run tired, its predator that always wins in the end, the one that attacks and not the one that just reacts. The NC don't have a warrior mentality, they only get courage from their blob, and so do their fcs. Its not their blob that wins the fights directly though though its their courage that allows them to go all in that comes from their blob. The ONLY fc, and I MEAN the ONLY fc that is brave enough to muster courage is yaay, without him the nc is a lost cause.
Did Imperian die in a rock climbing accident or something?

I for one welcome our new American overlords. \o/
People left with Viper because they for some reason worship the ground he walks on‚ although everything he touche? turns to shit. Shadoo is far too soft and enjoys the drama far too much. I used to too‚ but Viper really wore me down and I hone?tly don't miss having to d?al with his shit.
i too, at times, confuse internet spaceships with real life prejudices. i offered the foreign legion a few bill and ratting rights if they helped us against the ebil RUS and they were all like "no way bro. RUS too strong. besides, we busy in algeria system". ...damn frogs...cowards.more strange words
when i mentioned a certain "pandemic legion" they pulled their gas masks and hazard suits and gtfo

PL frenzied smugposting is an acquired taste, I grant you, but at least there's posting going on.
got bubbled running away and taking fight is a big difference
This thread reminded me to take my morning crap.
Thanks guys o/
Whether or not the head of state remains in office for life is irrelevent. What matters is where the power of government is drawn from and limitations that are in place.
Don't worry. Many individuals are ignorant of politics.
The word 'democracy' does not define any concrete parameters in which the government can operate, where exactly its power comes from nor anything else beyond some notion of all stakeholders getting a say (which of course, is not even the case).
Whatever rules you set out to define a democracy will be subject to all kinds of exceptions, interpretations etc, unless you make it so broad that the definition is meaningless anyway.
Not knowing this is only as bad as showing your utter lack of understanding of political systems (or plain English), on the other hand, the fact you called someone a retard on it, makes you an asshole.
in b4 tread becomes a political tread and some wild discussions about the future of america.
Was nice to know u geminate.
We should make this thread about wildsides avatar. Then it would be a quality thread.
So are you saying a 'Democracy' is a state in which the sovereignty lies with the people and everything else is just a system of government?
If this is what you are saying, or something equally broad and meaningless, than you are using the term 'democracy' in a different way to say, the American governments have used it when talking about wars in the Middle East.
oh my god get out
Because Knowledge is Power!
edit: I was sorry about writing this as soon as I saw your edit. Get out.
There is no democracy in my internet spaceships game. Ask Daroh, he knows it even better. Now, get out.
How exactly, in any 'democratic' country in the world, does every citizen have an equal say in the decisions that affect their lives? I am a citizen, so is the transport secretary. Do I have an equal say in what percentage of the budget will be spent on subsidising rail fares as he does? No. Does it affect me life? Yes.
