    Yes, we shouldn't build military as first cghoice, but onlyu when nothing else is needed in the particular city...

    I think we should stick to the opinions we had before this came up in the UN. We obviously don't have a fundamental problem with this game mechanic being legal. If it was deemed illegal it would be unfair to us, as each of the other four teams have engaged in this activity in some way. We also believe that Gamecatcher shouldn't be allowed to stay in the game unless they are going to make "in-game" peace with us.

    More importantly, if we go back and do the turns over it can only hurt Netatolia, which we have already decided is not what we want. If we press for the continuation of the game as it is now we will be in the better position.

    I also don't think we should be completely silent on this. We might be viewed by Mongoose, Webringes, Apolyton, and Netatolia as the impartial observer in this matter. We know how Gamecatcher will regard our opinion.

    Yes, I think we should say something there too. We have been almost forgotten in this mess.

    I think that we will someday need a big milatary after the war in the west is done. I think we need to get out of APO's shadow and become a real nation with a milatary backing our word.

    Here is an update on progress toward resolving this situation in the UN thread. It seems that most / all remaining teams other than us have agreed to replay starting at 390AD, with mass teleportation by gifting cities banned. Also it looks like GCA will disband some units as reparations for using the teleport previously, and would also be forced to accept in-game peace to reset WW.

    I haven't been around very much before now, how do we handle officially responding to these types of discussions, now that a quasi-official proposal is on the table?

    If everyone is pretty much set on this one proposal, we should go with it. If either ally (of ours) disagrees (lets face it, CGN is NOW our ally and GWT is NOW our enemy), then we would have to go from there. We just have to make sure Poly and CGN aren't completely screwed.

    Well now the GCers will have to be forced to sign a peace treaty with us.

    Even if we only built Riders, and Apolytan went the complete economical route, I don't think we could take half their empire before they built up such a giant force to take back their cities, and then quickly take the rest of ours.

    If we want to fight them militarily, we first need to expand, and then have a powerful commerce and production economy.

    From the way Lucky is talking, this would only be in-game peace. They don't seem to be interested in treaties, though that would be up to the Foreign Office.

    I would only go for in game peace. Any formal treaty outside the game would be bad. It would be saying that they are worthy of existance.

    DZ! Zarn! Get in there and say something. They are starting to take notice that we aren't involved in the discussion. Get the game moving again.

    OK, I wrote this at the UN, highlighting my previous post on Page 3 of the thread. We are now on Page 7.

    Also, I gave them a deadline of Monday for us to come to a consensus. So, do you guys agree with what I presented? Hop it makes sense.

    Well if city gifting is not allowed anymore than I don't think we can do that great lighthouse trick to get to the west.

    EN, I think that city gifting would still be allowed as long as units weren't teleported in the process.

    And since no one objected to what I wrote previously, I have decided to add another post in the forum(early part of page 8 ). If you find this unaaceptable, you need to let me know.

    Here it is:

    I 100% support that and I think most everyone else around here does too.

    I doubt anyone HERE would go against that. You have the support of the Foreign Affairs Ministry.
