GINN reporting:

It appears that something has occurred within the Colorado Confederacy. Late this afternoon local time, broadcast and cable driven media again began to operate. The only thing currently being multi-cast is a video of the Flag of the Confederacy waving over aspen trees with Long's Peak in the background. No sound or verbal communication.

It is not clear at all what has transpired in Denver, especially with the ominous phrase last broadcast before the Confederacy went "dark". That order may be in the process of being restored and civil liberties restored, we can only hope at this point. One little girl interviewed this morning and holding her teddy bear seemed to sum it all up for the refugees, "I just want to go home."

You can't GIVE anybody anything in DA. The most you could do would be to quit. Even then, your land would go to the General who took it by force, not your chosen successor.

You sound like somebody who wants decisions to be made more than somebody who wants to make decisions.

I've been wondering this for a while; Why don't you capitalize your name?

Consider it simple respect. I don't qualify myself as a judge in regards to myself, I prefer to leave it to all others. I don't disrespect others that do capitalize, I believe that it is an affectation, like a beard or a tie. However, if one were to demand respect by, say for instance, calling themselves a god, I would find that to be arrogant, self-centered, narcissistic, conceited, egotistical, and, above all, disrespectful to everyone.

It may be a childish and flippant gesture on my part, but in my eyes it is important. I hope that helps a little into seeing who matt rowntree is or might be. And I thank you, General Marshall, for being a bit curious in the matter.

In addition, remember that it is not the Queen that is the most powerful piece on the chess board, but rather the piece that you least expect. ;)

Potential player Farukan Paunch is no longer eligible to compete in Decisive Action. As Mr. Paunch does not yet have a color on the map, the issue should not effect play. His pending nation has been scrubbed from the ORBAT.

Some of you will no doubt be curious as to why I've made such a final decision. The tipping point was this response he left for me on his DQ'd infantry MOC. I made every effort to be facilitating and friendly about the specifications violations and his level of rudeness will not be tolerated by the DAS.


"WHAT THE HECK!!!!!IF YOUR GOING TO BE SO PICKY, WHY NOT GIVE SPECIFICS?!ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THE BACKGROUND OF MY NATION? YOU WANNA LIVE MY LIFE FOR ME?!?!?!"

There is any further room or upside in diplomacy with Mr. Paunch, so he will no longer be playing. Too much shouting, too little reading.

#1. As for no new arrivals after AW4, the DAS likes the fact that new people can start late and still have a chance to play an important role in the outcome.

#2. I think the jury is still out on attack numbers, I want to see things play out a little, once people are forced to fight instead of guaranteed expansion, we should see some action.

#3 I can state pretty confidently that there will be no TO's in V2.

I agree, as I said to Topsy, V2 will not feature T.O.'s, but you're stuck with them for now.

(To Everyone) I know as things get heated there is going to be more and more criticism of the rules. While we accept that notion and support your right to do so, be aware that we are trying our best to provide a quality gaming experience, the rules have never been tested and the whole tamale is decidedly experimental in nature. There are plenty of wargaming options on the pages, but I don't think any of them can offer what DA can.

I'll put this in Feedback at the end, but here are two suggestions to increase the moc pool. Land Defensive Vehicle: A wheeled vehicle with weapons (jeep, humvee, 8wd, etc) and Long-Range Offensive: A cruise missile launch vehicle. Wouldn't lose any points for attacking long-range. (Over the ocean to whatever you're attacking, etc) Also possibly an anything-goes category where you could have mecha, hardsuits, walking tanks, odd aircraft, etc.

And instead of TO's, maybe have Cooperations. They would be only between two players and would be merely a non-aggressive agreement and planning/attack coordinating center between two nations - no defense benefits or anything like that.

Perhaps, instead of no new players after AW4, just no "ghost" players at all. We've seen "place holder" mocs pop up all over, fine and dandy; but, there appears to be several players that are just amoebas taking up space until their creators can use their positions. How does a builder suddenly appear on MP and their ONLY activity is to join DA, knock out a squad, and stake a territory?

Plus, X's idea for an "anything goes" category is completely awesome.

General Marshall. You have three territories. Other generals who have been here for the same time currently have five.

I do not list "Making AWs" as one of your strengths.

At any rate, being ready for your own move is certanly going to produce more benefit for you than...

Commenting on how ANOTHER general SHOULD HAVE RATTED out a THIRD general mo' bettah.

I mean, that doesn't even take into account that the little tattle tail was WRONG.

So I'm going to stick with my initial assertion: Focus on your own builds, skills, actions. It will help you MORE in the long and the short run.

I was going to put this suggestion in the DA 2.0 ideas thread, but as there are not likely to be TOs any more I'll put it here... as FFP MOCs are static emplacements, maybe they could only contribute to the defense of the nation that built them, not any TO allies?
That'd tweak things a little more in favour of attack. Of course, at this stage it might be like hitting a rock with a rubber mallet.

Haha, well said. I can assure you that my comment was not "crying," but more the sound of sinister plotting. Or some such. In any case, I'll attack you once I have enough attack power to do so, which unfortunately doesn't seem to be any time soon.

It appears that something has occurred within the Colorado Confederacy. Late this afternoon local time, broadcast and cable driven media again began to operate. The only thing currently being multi-cast is a video of the Flag of the Confederacy waving over aspen trees with Long's Peak in the background. No sound or verbal communication.

It is not clear at all what has transpired in Denver, especially with the ominous phrase last broadcast before the Confederacy went "dark". That order may be in the process of being restored and civil liberties restored, we can only hope at this point. One little girl interviewed this morning and holding her teddy bear seemed to sum it all up for the refugees, "I just want to go home."

GINN reporting: It has become clear that a new political climate has formed in the former Colorado Confederacy! An announcement on Denver Today, a news blog, indicates that either late tonight or early tomorrow a formal announcement and introduction of the newly elected Imperator of the Colorado Constitutional Republic along with staff and ranking officials.

Again, the Confederacy in Colorado has been overthrown and a new political entity has risen calling itself the Colorado Constitutional Republic. The fate of the former President and Clan council is at present, unknown...please stay connected to GINN for the latest.

First, I'm not GE. OK! No, really. I'm not GE. For real.

Now, somebody help me out with this.

First thing:

If I wanted to play in DA...

and I WROTE the rules for DA...

then WHY would I make it AGAINST the rules for me to PLAY in DA?

Second thing:
If I were a "mean" and "grumpy" and "formal" and "Wordy" guy...

AND if I wanted to disguise myself...

Then WHY would I disguise myself as a...

"Mean, grumpy, formal wordy" guy?

That makes no dang sense! No! I mean REALLY, that makes no dang sense!

Third thing:
IF I were going to start a group...

AND if I were going to disguise myself...

AND if I were going to use my disguise to dominate the group I started (which is totally crazy talk anyways)...

THEN...

Wouldn't I know it well in advance?

And...

Then wouldn't I take a month or two (or four) to develop a credible history on MOCpages instead of popping out of a dimensional portal like a magic gene with no history at all? Can I have a little credit? Please?

PEOPLE! STOP! REALLY! I WANT YOU TO GIVE ME CREDIT FOR BEING ABLE TO DO A FAKE IDENTIY BETTER THAN THIS!

And no! Don't start on the whole "SO it's Goldman?" thing!

No! GE is not him either! I went to high school with Goldman. Goldman is... Keith Goldman... really. I know his mom! (Stop it! For real, I've met his mom. She’s a nice lady. Step off, don't even start...)

Here is what I think (for the record).

Electric is a very private guy. He is consistently evasive about his background. But who he really is... is none of our business guys!

GE is an active builder and DA team member. He follows the rules, and plays the game. He plays hard, but he knows the rules. None of us have any right to expect any more form any DA team member. He is intelligent, aggressive, engaged, communicative, attentive, brash, maybe a little cruel (and aint we all!) and… hopelessly mysterious. It's all part of his "Deal."

I don't think General Revanchist is GE either! Dag nab it! Ravanchist is totally Ravanchist. He is his own guy! What is it with you people? GE is a shadowy private dude, but he is not a shape shifting predator, or a body snatcher, or a doppelganger or even a sock puppet... As far as I’m concerned he is just another General with a blood stained sword, in the ranks of DA.

I just get upset at the notion that I would start a grand experiment like DA, and then "monkey with the works" by running around in some false guise, manipulating events from the shadows. It’s hard enough to manipulate events out here in public! You think I want to try to do all that work AGAIN… IN SECRET… FROM INSIDE OF SOME GIANT PUPPET? Wrong answer Bub. Dat’s crazy talk!

I feel that I am mean and strange enough to be recognized as my own person... I think I rate that.

Somebody tell me why I can't just be Rutherford, and why I have to be Electric as well.

Come on conspiracy theory guys... lets lance this boil. Bring it!


Really folks... any takers on this one? Who REALLY beleaves this bunk? It keeps comming up in whispers and rumors.

Rutherford is Rutherford.

Goldman is Goldman.

Ravenchist is... probably not actually named Ravenchist, but he is his own person (and not any other person).

the guy left and I was forced to cancel my business trip AND my vacation so that I could be available 24/7 to lead that group of ... what... wait... I didn't mean to say any of that!

You DO know that this is just a game, right? I doubt canceling a vacation is worth it. But I am just a child, I do not yet understand the mind and priorities of an adult.

Number one, if my mom was playing DA she would be destroying players left and right, the woman is merciless, so lets just get that straight.

Now as to Electric's secret identity, he builds too well to be Michael, takes better photos than michael and he builds...where Michael mostly talks.

Now he could be me...but he's not. I barely have the energy to blog for TBB, referee here and build for BrickCon. I guess if the ruse was that elaborate I could have built everything in advance. Maybe I am GE!

My mom would own all of you though, that is the important thing to take from all this controversy.

Seriously though, I hope none of you think I would be so shady as to provide the prize and then try to win it. That would be truly unfortunate.

Carry on the with drug-fueled paranoia though, I can dig it. Look at your arms...there are bugs all over them!

I know Goldman. So I can read "between the lines" when he types.

I took just the true words from his statement above and offer this condensed "real deal" version of his post.

Read carefully!
TEXT BEGINS:

Number one, the woman is merciless,

and builds...where Michael mostly talks.

Maybe I am My mom.

Seriously though, I think I be shady and try to win.

truly drug-fueled

bugs !
TEXT ENDS.

That pretty much sums it up folks!
Lets focus and review:

Goldman is his mom, and he/she is merciless, . (dern straight he/she is!) and he/she builds while I talk (so when I am quiet... he/she has to stop building! Yes! A chance to defeat them at last!)He/she thinks themselve shady, and is trying to win... because of nnnnarrrrcotics! And he/she does not like bugs!

BAM! Another case closed by Dean Venture and Giant Boy Detective!

Transmission ends...

I still don't know what was holding it up!

Do you really want to join a group called Primal Scream? They sound like a death metal band.

I think I'll extend an invite to everyone in STUDS to join Primal Scream after that one. I may be able to entice even Luke.

Jeeesh.

It was a joke, cause, you know, it's STUDS, and we are studs, and it's the same word, and it was a joke, and yeah, I'm just gonna stop talking before I single handedly destroy STUDS...
