    Careful - we're only going to get a GA as long as we don't get a GA ;)

    Let's turn off research and stockpile :gold:

    That's the safest way to play this. If we get a non-Great Artist, then we can use him to start a Golden Age, and the cash is only a good thing. If we get an unfortunate Great Artist, then we don't get a Golden Age, and the cash will be useful anyway.

    Either way, Cash is good, and Plastics isn't too far off :)

    I can see why the other teams want to quit, we can steamroll them all at this point.

    It's not our fault that they're not trying. Or is it? :hmm:

    No one has yet asked me to take over from them :dunno:

    I'm going to continue here until I hear from a Piffle that they want me there.

    :wow: That's quite the graph!
    I guess I'd feel pretty hopeless if I were the other teams also :lol:

    Per the discussion going on in the "retire..." thread in the UN, I thought I'd raise the idea of diverting to Mass Media in our tech plan.

    I haven't actually opened the save to verify we're over the 40% threshold... but I'm pretty sure Peter's probably right, and in any case it'll be easy to verify.
    Assuming we are around 50% currently... and given the continued slow pace of the game - why not delay plastics to get Mass Media?
    I know killing people with tanks is fun... but just imagine the joy of a BtS game with better participation and stiffer competition!

    How many turns would it take us to get Mass Media and then build/rush the UN?

    We are 1 turn from Radio :) (we needed the :) before plastics anyways)

    Then porbably 5-6 away from Mass Media.

    If we time it right to we can vote ourselves winners during a golden age :)

    The one thing I don't like about a UN victory is people backstabbing us. We need to make sure we are above the safe point (50%+) so we're garanteed the victory.

    I don't know if Memphus checked out numbers last turn?

    But I'm pretty sure we're over 40% - which is the real safe point, since no one else can win without getting 60% of the vote.

    Besides, I'm becoming convinced that Aloha is probably serious about voting for us. I think Robboo just wants this thing over asap.
    Worst case scenario, we divert to Mass Media, invest in building the UN, then come up a bit short in votes. In that case - it's mostly the other teams that suffer as we get plastics, oil, & tanks - and then kill them the old fashioned way.
    I think they know this, and will vote to put themselves out of their misery.

    We have ~55%. So once Innovia is killed we will be over the 60% range and can vote ourselves the winners :)

    Then let's take out Innovia and win this thing!
