Political status in our 'solo' random round

Not to overanalyze the situation or anything but to me it looks like most alliances are avoiding pissing eachother off thus far. Seems to be a few small specific targetings here and there but nothing on a large scale. To me it looks more like personal vendettas being fulfilled and whatnot.

Is this the alliances treading gingerly because of a lack of comfort in the number of allies they used to have (and as a result keeping their political options open *gasp*) or is everyone just taking it easy because it's 9.5?

If an alliance starts grabbing power atm, its going to scare other alliances into moving agianst it. And there is still roids to be had just hitting parras in raids. The alliances that are starting to move up and take leads etc will eventually force a war for ranking, but that is still not upon us.

I guess the answer is yes it has alot to do with it being solo, but not because people are nervous without allies. Just that the ramification of making moves at a time when lots of alliances are sitting around waiting for something to happen might be pretty harsh.

Not really. I have my highest score and roid rank ever this round, I just find the political side to be far more boring than usual.

From a 'NoS' point of view, it's a good round. Members are happy. Members are having fun. No allies to worry about. YAY!

From a 'Dingo' point of view. I'm happy. I'm having fun. No allies to worry about. YAY!

I don't see the problem of no blocks (altho rumour has at least 2 starting to form already) shame to see some people never learn.

where's the fun in PA if you don't have to worry about your alliance or where you have no worries at all? Isn't that what forces us to keep playing this game while most claim they hate it etc?

The politics is a large part of the game.

Also, tell me why alliances would specifically choose people who are bad at the game (although it's not really very hard at all; eg. build harpies/chimera/pegasi/demeters/wyvern, put your fleet into the bcalc and see what comes out, be in an alliance to get help. Repeat until number 1.)

well, i must admit personally i find this round rather entertaining.
its the first round in a long time, where you can attack a galaxy and be reasonably sure you will get through on some planets without having to launch 13 waves.

yes, politically there isnt much intrigue, but thats a refreshing chance compared to the last rounds...

You know wahts a shame, that the long time leader of an alliance doesnt realize there is middle ground between blocking and completely solo.

I dunno, for me roiding random people everynight isnt that much fun. This isnt a very exciting game.

That would be do to the randomness, not the solo alliances.

As far as "boring politics" goes..
Why not make a move? You have all the options in the world, do you not? If you find the round politically boring isn't that your own fault for not making something happen for your own alliance?

To be honest I don't care whether the politics is boring or not, I'm enjoying this round the most since r5, far more than r8 as well.

There's just one flaw though, two even, the gals I hit have a diproportionate amount of xans and the scan formula is utter ****e.

Otherwise it's the most enjoyable round in a long time.

What's wrong with the scan formula exactly?

ps.

There will be large numbers of xan players; most of the terrans will probably be new signups.

No, because the public opinion pendulum has swung too far in the other direction now, and any alliance that dares to not go solo will run a very high risk of getting stomped for blocking.

Fleet-catching when the top planet is less than 10mil? What exactly is the point? :\

its the first round in a long time, where you can attack a galaxy and be reasonably sure you will get through on some planets without having to launch 13 waves.

yes, politically there isnt much intrigue, but thats a refreshing chance compared to the last rounds...
for me it was boring because I had exams and wasn't able to fully play it so I kinda lost interest into this round even before it started.

exactly, it's way more fun to have a "target", to set a goal. This doesn't mean blocking etc. Killing randoms doesn't give the pleasure that you get by killing your enemy alliance or a high ranked member of them.

Indeed but so far it is not yet really that rewarding to spend your alliance resources to fleetcatch someone, better wait till the gaps have grown a bit and the escortplanets have died.

Not having any enemies per say, I find it refreshing to just "play" Planetarion again. It's quite relaxing.

It's also nice and quiet around these parts, which is a welcome relief from the usual powerblock/stagnation/babyeating whinge threads.

The round is much shorter, in comparison to other rounds. We're about half way through this round already, according to Spinner's original prediction.

You don't? That's funny, I seem to remember you doing that exact thing last round.

yes, a welcome relief for a "short period", hence why this is the inbetween round. Would you continue playing PA if it stays like this? As in, no wars, no enemies, no goals, no nothing, just random attacking ...

I know I wouldn't

Its a shame that some people still cant see the treadwheel allying creates. Eventhough I'd also like to see allying, naping and alliancewars, I think r9.5 is just fine as it is. r10 is anyhow totally different and hopefully theres no need to live in the fear of blocks.

Kick your HCs or leave your alliance, possibly to join another alliance. If it's too boring, do something about it. Don't whine about it on the boards (unless you are inviting people to declar war on your alliance).

I remember how round 8 got boring and we decided to declare war on another alliance, just for fun. Just when we had our first attack planned and got all excited, they pulled the plug. :-(

if this round continues on and finishes as just an exercise in roiding inactive players, anyone who calls it a success should be smacked. This is a war game and thsi is a diplomacy game. THey are important, fun and integeral parts of this game.

random rounds take somewhat more skill then private.. meaning it's better anyways... and now finally alliances are going solo... (or pretend too and too obvious about napping) so it's good
just now it shows that alliances aint as good as they pretend they are (even tho official comment is "it's only round 9.5, we aint playing seriously" ) funny..

What on earth are you babbling about?

They dont take more skill. Nor is going solo good per se. ITs a good way to start a round, not to finish it. And it doesnt show that any alliance aint as good as they pretend they are. You seem to think that random rounds have some kind of magical powers.

If you think I'm wrong, you probably misread
