BLOC is a Cold War simulator where you are a third world country. As of now, MLPOL doesn't have an alliance. If there is interest, we can make one
>How can I join and bring glory to the board and horse pussy alike? Go to https://oppressive.games/bloc/ Fill in the blanks. Post your country name and region in this thread so we can invite you. Preferably we should be in the same region so we can protect each other if we'd be smaller.
Rumsod is a nigger when it comes to the layout, it should be fixed soon. It's been a while since a pone alliance has been in this game.
>HURR DURR SHITTY INTERFACE The game is supposed to be a cold war simulator involving more diplomacy than actual war.
>HURR DURR ITS BORING AND ONLY FARMING AND BUILDING UR NATION This is true to some point due to the diplomacy, but a war always comes up sooner or later. Our objective would be to become the strongest alliance.
I've run out of usable land and since mines were my biggest expense I'll have an accumulating fortune as I wait for my economic growth to stagnate. I guess this means I don't have to sell research anymore. What should I do with all this money? Maybe I should buy weapons and MG to build up my military? Or maybe I should just donate more to the alliance bank. Let me know if you need anything and I can try to buy it for you.
>>137786 White peace has been sent. This highlights the direction of attack we're likely to face (Invictus has a few powerful members in Central Europe), and shows that we are outmatched in terms of having weapons. I'm not sure how we can get more, presumably from production and the market, but we should all aim for the higher area of Korean War Surplus.
>>137788 Agreed. I think in terms of troops this is why I think we should be all around the 200 range, even if it can be hard making that work I think it'd be well worth it in the end. We should definitely aim in getting wep. factories as well as a few normal factories to help produce MG and make ships/planes while having a great number of weapons.
>>137791 Tbh I'd much prefer a MDP with Mercenaries. If it comes to it we could withstand the storm of Invictus with a decent army, air force and navy. However, Mercenaries are much more regionally concentrated and we simply cannot go to war with them. If a MDP isn't possible with Mercenaries only then should we go with Invictus.
>>137793 Go for it. These are clearly experienced players and NCIS has a fantastically powerful military, as well as a blue water navy so he could help us out if we need. Maybe they could give us advice in bringing ourselves up-to-date.
If possible, go ahead and send any spies you have toward my nation. Overtime it'll build experience as you withdraw and re-infiltrate per turn, as well as providing experience for any spy hunters. In turn if you want me to send spies to your nation for you to build experience with your spy hunter as well, that would be fine. Also, you only have to find the spy, not expatriate or kill it. Only do so if it's a spy from another alliance.
>>137898 Alright. Also, try using the research to maximize your factory/ wep factory output. It can help a lot, especially since land will become a big problem in the future.
>>137903 Sent you some research. I'm getting a third university this turn (hopefully) and that will likely be my last big construction unless more conquests happen. I'll be able to send you RM and oil from now on.
>>137975 Just focus on conquering land, don't worry about his air force or navy. The goal isn't to destroy him. I'm sending you some goods to help your development.
>>137978 That was easy to see coming after hearing about his big heist. I don't think anyone would complain if we quietly pretended a MDP with Imperia ever happened (they proposed it under false pretenses, after all).
>>137980 Wouldn't rule out the game glitching, I have -$2000k budget all of a sudden and I have no idea how. Did you do Great Leap Forward a bunch of times? Otherwise, you might have gone into a bad recession. I'm sending you resources to help expand your industry. If you have lots of land to spare focus on mines to improve your GDP.
>>137980 Go ahead and withdraw ~20,000k to spend on mines/facs/whatever you need to try and get the growth back on track. I'd go ahead and spend a lot of it on Great Leap Forward since you're Central Planning in order to get your growth raised and the rest of it on making sure that your factories are not only receiving the RM/Oil they consume in order to make MG but also getting more mines in order to increase your natural GDP.
>>137987 Congrats! I'm still adhering to the rule of specialization because the research and MG I'm producing are useful in their own right. I'd beware of Invictus though because of the programs they have. Most of them just make domestic policies cheaper but their freedom of information gives them a massive boost in research because of the more than 60 universities they have. I'm afraid they'll snowball, but they definitely will be getting nukes before anyone else.
Well I've arrested opposition and dealt with rebels, hopefully that's enough, but my growth recovery is extremely low at $2 million a turn. I deliberately reduced my troop count to under 140k to help it along, but I'm hesitant to bring my troops under 120k. If any of you also need help, I'll send you stuff and try to get you some oil.
>>139149 I move that we have a special meeting because of the outbreak of nuclear war and global economic collapse. Looks like Invictus is at war with multiple groups, including Mercs and Sovereign League. Just built a factory and I'll work on getting my airforce as big as possible.
Hi, I found this game two days ago. The game encourages me to join an Allience, I just wanted to learn first and develop peacefully... Howerver, a nuke just droped + you are the only allience with reasonable tax! So, I'd like to join you...
Nation: European States Leader: Athan Region: Central Europe
PS: Is there any other means of comunication, or should i check here often, for messeges.
>>139178 Get your economy to free market and I can send you a stimulus package of RM and oil to build factories and military factories, plus research to increase industrial technology. There's a guide you should read at the start of the thread. Right now we're focusing on weapons production.
Alternatively, I could send goods to Pones to help build more factories.
>>139195 I'll see about buying some oil from my contacts. I recommend building factories and military factories in a 1:1 ration, that way you have enough MG to keep weapons production going. And yes, a turn (12 hours) is a month.
I am 3/5ths of the way to completing chemical weapons, just waiting for my reputation to recover
UN invaded me because I ended up at "Axis of Evil" due to trying to maintain stability in the wake of economic collapse (though the chemical weapons certainly didn't help). I knew it would be bad but I didn't expect to lose everything. It's been fun frens, there's no coming back for me.
>>139917 Well, your wells can't drill without reserves. At this point building more wells would help with raising real GDP more: almost $80 million per well versus less than $50k per mine. They're more expensive though.
Peppermint formerly New World Order alliance officer during war choose to run to enemy alliance leaving his fellow officers to die in figth. For this. I Ordo Malleus Inqusitor know as Easternside2, being last officer of NWO still playing this iteration with new allies, will smite you down. May original NWO officers rest easy knowing that they have been avenged
Everyone go ahead and send/accept peace to who you can. There is a high likelihood that Mercenary Corps will be continuing their attacks however. We'll see if we can get Pirate MMP to hold up the MDP we have with them.
over the skies of nation called "Pones of Sunset" roaring sound of Jet engines is heard. Shortly there after pillars of fire can be seen errupting from pegasus camps of ponies.
Imperial army of eastern side is here to take more land and more ponies as slaves. Pony towns are tourched as imperial army takes mares as slaves for imperial soldiers to enjoy. /mlpol/ is doomed in bloc
