Proposing a discussion about something before it potentially gets out of control is not ridiculous or sad, if this discussion took place years ago we all may still be in Prime. (no guarantee)
Things changing from a team based to an Empire based direction has a lot of implications. That and I see very few claims every being defeated for a multitude of reasons.
I'm not saying I'm right, I'm not saying I'm wrong, but doing something of this scale warrants discussion before moving forward.
I'm not against the discussion I'm against the use of past failures as a reason not to do something. I'm against you always being paranoid about an attempted Empire (big or small you're always anti-empire attempting). These things arent exclusively evil and destined to fail. You accused the Monarchs of stock piling villains to get an Empire and how that was the blueprint EVERYONE was going to use now. No one did. Your first post in this thread wasnt advocating for civil discussion it was a slight ribbing (flashbacks of the Age of Empires). You're bias, anti-empire, which is fine but lets not play games and pretend you're simply trying to invoke discussion. He's already done that with this thread per the rules and his questions were answered.
- You can try if you want but you have to take each country one at a time with separate threads repeating the entire process.
Everything else is just Empire paranoia and personal bias. Lets be honest. One person trying to conquer something isnt an epidemic. It isnt even a problem cause the CvnU isnt Anti-Empire. Its suppose to be hard to achieve, not impossible. Its not suppose to be forbidden cause people can exploit the system. Guess what, its already being exploited. I'm doing it with the Yard. Thats an Empire. Cleo's Australian thread. Empire. Keijijo Monastery. The First Empire. Empires are here, they have been.
