Well it's happening....(huge port exploit)

Recommended Posts

Why does the US not leave that black hole area and capture some ports elsewhere on the map? I don't understand.

You're missing the point.

Your point is, that some ex US guys have a personal vendetta against the US and that you could lose a port or two due to that.

I think I already told in the past that GB had similar issues with KBEAR clan, who went to pirates and removed everybody from friends list, so that nobody could defend the ports.

US civil war was after the timeframe and the point remains. In neither civil wars did the colonies participate. France did loose Saint Domingue during their revolution but that was a slave rebellion and not due to the civil war.. More of an opportunitic move when france was weak.

If RvR and PvP is a problem there's always the PvE server...

So historically, there was infighting inside nations. Rebellions were quelled. Why can't we have that in game? I don't understand how you wouldn't want this ability when it's almost a given in any context of war or nations. This IS pvp server after all.

Maybe join Poland. Get out from the political nightmare and civil war state that is the United States? These sort of issues seem to be a constant thing with you guys.

True, but it just shows the flaws of the game. Maybe if we had the ability to quell these rebellions, settle these differences within our nation, then we could come out better. 
I think that's as profound as gameplay can get and really reflects on history and humanity. Yet it isn't possible. We've seem to adopted the modern trend of sending proxy armies to fight our enemies instead of facing them ourselves. Even AGAINST ourselves.

On US server people have already seen what happens when another faction quells their rebellious counterparts in an internal nation dispute and it wasn't pretty. Lost a lot of players to the server that way. The United States will always be a faction is very split and creates its own internal strife.

Big problem. Who are you, or me, or another player, to define some clan as Rebels ?

:) 

Good question, how are they defined in history?

Also, in this case here? Are TDY/ROGUE the rebels, or is the rest of the US nation the rebels?

If you are talking about the pirates, they were very strong on global with outlaw battles. Best in the server actually.

Point is if there is war, there's civil war. They're two sides of the same coin. To deny that is to deny reality and there's no reason to not have it in game.

Because the ports in the carribean was colonies. Most of them had barely the ressources to survive (historically) without the aid of their homelands.. Most produced cash crops and were entirely dependant on the goods they could get from Europe. And it was in a period of increasing centralization of power and institutionalizing both armies, navies and justicial departments. Interestingly tho - even during the british civilwars where Oliver Cromwell took off the head of Charles I the colonies at no point rebelled against the central authority stemming from Europe - even when that authority was in turmoil.

In short - Civil wars was just not possible.

Solution: Remove all national factions, redo the map (33% of the map is atm not used - atlantic and pacific oceans) and since we've already given up on the notion of any historical pretense with the introduction of Prussia, Russia and Poland-Lithuania (I'm holding my breath for China and Japan - I'd love to sail under the flag of the Tokugawa-Shogunate), we might as well remove all reminiscence of historical pretext.

As a self admitted history buff, I have to disagree. Even if it didn't happen as perfectly as two even sides fighting for absolute power, it still happened and should be possible in game.

Given that a Major colonial power is moving in to intervene and establish control and order over the area...

... no idea. Tories and Patriots games ?

Isn't that port in the middle of the US safe zone?   Not like anyone attacking can do anything to anyone without reinforcements being called in.

Not in the colonies. Mainland England, France, Spain, Denmark-Norway all experienced civilwars - but not in the colonies.

So if it's possible for outside intervention, why not inside? Isn't that kind of the prerequisite?

Ah hey, they did the same in pirate nation :) We helped them capture Kidds Island and then they went Russian, removed everyone from friend list etc. They like doing their German tricks.

It is a HUGE exploit. There is no way to deal with rogues and hostiles and spies within your nation, right Hethwill? Well... without breaking game rules, as you know.

So it's already been a problem for multiple nations.

I don't really know what more to say. Pretty much every game I've played that is trying to emulate war knows the importance of civil war/rebellion on the grand scheme of things. It's not even arguable whether we should have it or not. It's a basic fundamental.

I think its crazy to think we don't need or want this.
