    Deciding the Future of Seven Kingdoms

    Good morning everyone, This is going to be a tough topic to address, but those of you that are still active in some capacity I am sure have noticed the alliance has been struggling since the last war. Due to a few reasons mostly in regards to our performance last war a good portion of our gov bench has left and moved on to other things. This has left us with very little to work with which in all reality is at my fault. So to be entirely transparent and honest Myself and the remaining gov bench are incredibly burned out on this game, myself and the others have spent a large portion of our time the last 4 years playing this game and doing our best to lead the alliance. We have been speaking internally about what next steps there are to be taken and we didn't feel it was right to come to any conclusions before first broaching the subject with those of you who have remained with us through many hardships. As we see it there are two options to take this in, we can essentially "retire" the alliance and keep this place as an homage and continue our inactive play style or if there is enough interest to form a new government bench with what's left of the active roster the current gov can look into what it would take to get those interested properly trained by our allies. Should we retire the alliance it would likely result in closing off recruitment and us recommending that anyone who wants to play a more active role head elsewhere. Should we manage to get a large enough bench to make another attempt at bringing back the alliance there will be more details that I need to hammer out. At the end of the day the decision is in your guys hands and whatever it is that we as a community decide upon I just want it to be known that SK has facilitated some of the best memories I have, I will always be here to do my best to support this community through whatever it is that happens next even if I no longer plan to be taking an active role in the game itself.

    I'm not sure why anything going on today means that we shouldn't continue to devote time, energy, and resources to important research, growth, and exploration. We're not halting any of that in any other area of research due to what's going on so why would we do it here, of all areas?

    Hey guys, I'll write a bit about things that have bugging me a bit so that newer people could catch up in fighting. See the biggest issue we face in this war is in the coloumn "net". It is calculated by how much damage you have done minus how much damage you have taken. I won't name and shame and not go any lower with the list to negative numbers, but all of SK has done negative 11 billion. We've lost $11 billion more than we've made the enemy pay for it. That's awful numbers. How can we improve it? Quite generally shift your focus and mindset to monetry numbers. Don't waste resources while make the enemy pay for his. TL;DR: Don't buy tanks, planes, ships and infra. Just declare as many raids as you can. You'll be fine. DO-s Declare offensive wars. Despite having 3 defensive wars you can still declare offensive wars. If the enemy nation is on grey and inactive he is unlikely to defend himself. If he has 0 soldiers you will make your daily soldiers buy (cheap), do your attacks against him (no munitions, also cheap). Then you just sit back and see how other nations attacking you will kill all your soldiers. They will spend much more munitions and gasoline than you (good!). https://politicsandwar.com/index.php?id=15&keyword=1000&cat=war_range&ob=score&od=ASC&maximum=50&minimum=0&search=Go Just start checking grey nations or the ones that are marked inactive. Make sure you attack only nations in enemy alliances though, but that's half of the server If the enemy has no navy, save up 12 military action points and buy 1 ship. 1 ship only! Do 3 naval attacks worth 42 resistance points! Then you will sit back and see how the other enemy nations will use munitions and gasoline for 100 navy ships to kill your 1 ship. When in beige buy max soldiers, skip the tanks and stuff. Team up with one or two more SK members in your range and you can bring down one enemy nation with full soldiers. When good raids are hard to find or some enemy has 2000 infra it is good tactic. If in mid war you happen to need a lot larger number of soldiers then on day 1 buy only 10 000 soldiers. With that do the easy raids against enemies with no soldiers. Just before the update buy max soldiers and just after the update buy max soldiers again. Effectively you should have 60% of your max soldiers. When picking an enemy you can opt for two goals: Making damage. If enemy has 1500+ infrastructure go for attrition. You will focus on taking out his infra. Alternatively you can find some rare nations that have no barracks (soldiers) and only tanks. Then you attack their tanks making them cry as they spend their steel. For example: https://politicsandwar.com/nation/id=190403 (Yeah my bad on that one, I noticed it too late). Looting an enemy. If they have no valuable infra, then just attack them for the goal of winning the war as cheaply and fast as possible. Take the loot. The following example won't seem much at first, but it is 2-3 million profit. Livonian Confederacy won the war and looted $0, 0 Coal, 443 Oil, 0 Uranium, 0 Iron, 0 Bauxite, 441 Lead, 203 Gasoline, 331 Munitions, 6 Steel, 31 Aluminum, and 0 Food. Aetherium Benevolentia also lost 4.2% of the infrastructure in each of their cities. When you have brought your inactive targets down to 0 resistance you will kill 3-5% of their infra. If the enemy nation has over 1000 infra it is good damage! You will also loot them. After that just put the spoils of war into SK bank. If you are unable to put money into bank due to blockade: You can have roughly 1 million on hand which enemy can not loot. Anything above that will be stolen. So just buy so much land for your random city as you can and leave the last 1 million on hand for fighting. You will avoid monetry loss and invest into your nation's future. DON'T-s Do not waste money. If you're not blockaded keep as much as possible in SK bank. Otherwise it will be stolen, you've noticed it already. Do not buy tanks, planes or ships unless absolutely needed. 2000 tanks cost 1000 steel, which in return costs 4 million in monetry value. It's not worth losing 4 million on steel every day. Do not buy infrastructure unless you're extreamly low. One thing is to buy from 200 infra to 600 infra in your cities. For 10 cities it would cost 3,5 million and enable you to buy soldiers. However jumping from 200 infra per city to 1150 infra per city will cost you 23 million. You will not make any additional gains from that, however you will lose that investment in a week! Do not focus on the war you can not win. Look at some cases here Alyster https://politicsandwar.com/nation/id=163805&display=war Sezkan Yesil https://politicsandwar.com/nation/id=200117&display=war People ignore the defensive wars completely and focus on easy offensive wars to do damage. In defensive wars against larger enemy nations by doing nothing the enemy is spending more money, because they have to pay for ammunitions and gasoline. On the following screenshot you see I lost 1,3 million in monetry value, while the enemy lost 9,6 million. By doing nothing, not having anything valuebale to lose (tanks, infra, planes) this war was more profitable to SK than the enemy. Despite it being a loss.

    I’ll type up my thoughts Sunday when I get back from NH, but I want to clear up something that I think might be misunderstood: If we retire SK, we aren’t going to disband. For those of you who are mostly burned out with the game, we’d stick around in-game to putter along, and still have the discord and forums up for social stuff and game nights and all that. But it wouldn’t be as an alliance with recruitment, aggressive growth strategies, or any real military planning. Obviously no good for anyone who still wants to take the game seriously and make something of themselves, but we aren’t talking about closing the doors and everybody goes their separate ways. The community will stick around as long as people still like talking to each other. But it won’t be as a competitive PW alliance. also for anyone who is still around next month and is interested, I will be sending out a little gift bag of some kind to all members to celebrate our 10 year anniversary on March 15th. It won’t be anything big - likely a small printed scroll with a message from me, and some magnets and a keychain with the SK symbols (old and new). I remember we gave away magnets with the flag a while ago and that was fairly popular.

    I think retiring is in the best interests of the AA. Any attempts to continue would just be SK in name only. Keep the community and what not. Maybe we'll find other games to group up in. But as a PnW AA. I think we should bow out gracefully.

    1914 isn't a bad date to pick for the start of "today". WW1 and the following revolutions swept away much of the old world and the monarchies of the old: Russian Empire, German Empire, Ottoman Empire, Austro-Hungarian Empire. That's a lot of Europe switching to modern times. Also when picking a date when technology and thinking got close enough for it to be considered a "today" then what the hell, why not 1914? A big war to mark the split.

    hello hello everyone i am cillian, the leader of rumialan, and i have recently joined SK after xaria told me that he'd leak to the govenment my plans to use dakimakuras to smuggle cocaine unless i joined using his reflink. i'm an 18 year old student, i am planning on studying philosophy and making my career out of it. while usually i dislike political roleplaying games, p&w seems interesting since it's all war and resources, no silly simulations of democracy or imitation of the united nations. in my free time i enjoy watching movies, and sometimes playing video games, i mostly play touhou and girl's frontline

    Chinese presidents don't have as wide control as you'd imagine. The CCP has quite strong internal opposition and piles of burucracy. Xi has recently been taking a lot of heat from CCP for awful economical times. Chinese economy has only grown around 6-7% at recent times. He's an awful leader for that in some party officals' mind. Mean while since US elections are a joke, I could just act like everything is an alternative fact.
