    Sure we could have shifted to a different pre-build or just continued on to the Statue of Zeus (the original plan). We decided it would be best to stop working on prebuild / wonder so we could switch over to military production in that city. We decided to build a cheap wonder instead of wasting the shields we already had invested.

    You really should have stuck with your original plan. Things might have been different. It appears that cartoon of General W was wuite accurate.

    Not sure what cartoon you're referring to. We'll have to wait this the game is over and we can all go over the TNT sub-forum and play Monday Morning Quarterback but I doubt the Statue of Zues would have helped alter the course of history.

    Ha!
    Actually, believe it or not, I put the International Tribune in temporary suspension because I feared it might be perceived as un-sportsman like. The atmosphere was getting a little tense here in the UN, and I didn’t want to make anyone seriously upset.
    Don’t worry though – we’ve been working on other projects that we look forward to sharing soon.

    Yeah other projects :p

    But I also notice that no other team has been releasing editions ... I'd love to read YOUR (as in Nuts and KISS) perspective on things :mischief:

    I would give you our perspective but forum rules and my conscience dictate that I can't use that sort of language

    someones working on ours, but you know being KISS its chaotic, i think we infact being idiots ended up posting it in some forum related to the presidential elections-they wanted to know who wrote it so they could back them for the campaign. :)

    The DG is still being printed but whenever we try to send a boat over to give you guys a copy it gets mysteriously bombed:confused: . At one point we even sent an escort of 40 odd infantry to deliver it but not even they could make it through to the MIA news stands, apparantly a lot of horse and buggy traffic blocked up all the roads :rolleyes: (maybe you guys should invest in some traffic management system:) ), anyways it become to much of a hassle trying to deliever papers that never got there so its strickly a domestic issue of DG now:p

    Here's some fun posters that are plastered all around the cities of MIA.

    Thought I might share with all of you.
    Course, I suppose you might perceive them a bit differently than the citizens of MIA do.







    Our crazy Citizen Information Agency keeps churning out these beauties to help keep the patriotic fervor at full boil.

    If any of you would like to purchase some war bonds, MIA is now accepting gold payments from any foreign powers. Price is currently 2 gold per War Bond – but prices are rising! Get 'em while you still can!

    Yes, I agree that's true.

    Although, maybe for a different reason than you're suggesting...

    He was too busy slinging mud to do a good job as president.

    The only thing "outdated" will be your citizens after we kill all your youth drafted by force to serve in your pathetic airforce.

    Whilst they may not be "state of the art" as you say, I'm sure KISS could help explain to you what they can do.
