eUS Dictatorship

Post by Ilene Dover on Mon Apr 04, 2016 11:37 pm

OK, this one might be contentious and hit with a ban hammer. Honestly, I'm just curious and like to ask questions.

The coup today (day 3058) seems to be going off without much of an issue. I can't help but note there were only 5 MUs in support. Besides ourselves, the USAF were the only "major" backers. BeachBunny's little club were the only other group that registers about 1B damage for this week...

Notable absences are therefore War Inc and Ubermensch.

Ubermensch's opposition is pretty clear because of TDK sitting in the command chair.

What's up with War Inc? Does anyone know why there was no government media about the coming coup? Are we looking at the possible end of self-dictatorship? I can't help but think that without our backing the self-coup could very well have failed...

I halfway covered this on the wall for those who might not have seen it.

I haven't spoken to jadiv or Cubby about this, so I'm not sure whether War Inc just missed the three-hour support window or what. As an MU, they have more international merc-types and folks with flexible allegiances than EZC might have, but jadiv and Cubby are both good guys, and I just don't think they would intentionally do anything they thought would hurt the eUS community.

One explanation for their absence might have to do with the lack of media beforehand and the job the exec did (or didn't do) when it came to publicizing the battle. I mean, it's worth noting that compared to most of the other eUS MUs, EZC is full of active folks and tends to be pretty well plugged-in, so to speak.

Beyond that, I can't speak on it, since I'm not in the exec (or completely in the loop) right now, but I will say that from my perspective, being curious, having a concern, and voicing that concern is not something that's going to get you hit with the ban hammer. Razz

As a self-informed player I had a fair idea of what was going on and when to expect it. Had I not taken the initiative to inform myself, and used my existing resources to do so, then I would have no f'ing idea what was going on.

A coup started by the CP, the day before elections he isn't contesting. From an MU that hasn't held the dictatorship before? What the actual f... Is IS an actual doofus that is going to steal eUS money as well as Black Academi's?

I knew the answer to that question already, but it's entirely possible that many (most?) people didn't. Maybe there was communication at the comand level about planning and advance warning. Waaaay above my pay grade to know that.

Anyway, it's been poorly executed. The fact it will get over the line is partly due to luck and mostly due to EZC. I hope the new government (whoever it is) are suitable grateful.
