How about a sticky with some good advice on how to build a solid nation? Is anyone game?
I guess we could steal a nation building guide from the GC forum.
My first advice: if someone wants bonus resources that require oil and lead (or uranium) and if it is possible to repeatedly delete a nation & create a new one, everybody try to create one with the desired resources, since this way they won't degrade the environment. Unfortunately the chance to get oil&lead is only 1/400.
Implying that me and Xz are lucky sons o' bitches?
You do realize that getting trades when you have oil and lead is a pain right?
I know, that's why I found Frigo's statement silly. Having oil and lead is a curse.
Whata are you talking about? You have both canceled trade deals with me before.
Having Lumber and Cattle is a curse.
Yet, you have a full rig of bonus resources.
Bribery works wonders.
It does indeed. In fact that's an awesome bit of advice for building a strong nation;
Bribe other players to trade with you.
well...I kinda have bribed my traders...atleast I've told them I will....
Lying about FA is the quickest way to find yourself in a war, and if they state thats the reason they attacked you, GC might not back you....
Avoid the mess and pay up, or do like me and never pay. Most of my trades last for a long time, no money exchanged.
Well, as soon as they PM me and ask for the money I might pay up, but before that,
I wont do anything
Sure, why not.
It would be prudent to pay them as soon as possible, wobbler. You don't want a random war declaration to pop up on your nation, with the reason, "Give me mah moneh!!!1one"
well, all of them are like 30 power, I am like 800 power. and those whose not that low and would be able to attack me, ethier bribed me or we has no agreement
You should pay what you've promised, not doing so is unethical.
Well...yea, but I was in a need of monet and for the sake of HoL members getting stronger and to encourage them to take contact and learn to use the PM Machine and some more stuff I'll pay them when the deal is finished.
If they're all 30 power, maybe they're going to have their nations deleted soon, or are hurting because you never paid them.
Either way, you could be sinking fast.
yes...thr problem is the with msot of them I havnt agrred on any amount, and becuase they don't know how to use the PM and msg me about it so we can discusse it I don't know what to do....
