Regional Poll • Proposed Alliance

The Pony Principality of Magical Equestria wrote:Yesterday we received a telegram from The Federal Republic of Sassory, president of the United Commonwealths of Nova region. The UCN has apparently had run-ins with raider regions such as DEN, and is proposing a multi-region alliance to combat them. The alliance, called the Nova Compact, is described in the dispatch from the UCN we've pinned to the regional World Factbook Entry. This poll is to vote on whether Pony Lands should be part of this regional alliance. Because defending against raiders requires WA membership (to oust the invader who has set themselves up as Delegate to seize power), the poll is limited to WA nations here in the region. Please make your wishes known so that we may communicate them to the UCN.

Voting opened 4 days ago and will close . Open to WA member residents. You cannot vote as you are not logged in.

For all those voting "no", you can look at the most recent closing of an embassy. DEN does not care, and they will flood group after group just because they can. Not protecting ourselves now is just silly.

The Shrill Pony Federation of Shrillland wrote:I say no because I believe in an absolutely rigid neutrality in such issues. I have never seen PL get raided or take part in a liberation before, and there's no reason for us to stick our necks out for the axe now...figuratively of course.


You call voting "No" rigid neutrality? The very fact that you voted violated this neutrality you're speaking of.

If the recent happenings are any indication, DEN doesn't care if you've stuck your neck out, or taken part in anything before. They'll simply invade you because they can. They don't need a reason, and they don't care.

Since I don't really do much game-wise, I'll gladly accept being part of the group since it's really of no consequence. I'm just saying I don't think there's any need for us to go liberating regions willy-nilly. What's to say that the Nova Compact will only combat DEN? What's to say it won't start going on liberation crusades?

Honesty I think you guys should stay neutral , being in the NS international affairs can prove to be a hard task . I only think you guys should get involved if theirs regions such as Equestria maybe others as well . But I was hoping that the IFU can get some type of culture exchange from each other . Honesty their best bet is to call a defender region for help , and possibly wait until they leave . I was hoping that the IFU-PonyLands-Equestria can have a neutral defense pact , but this will have to go through my government so it wouldn't be happening anytime soon.

Only way we could ever help if any of us has multiple ALT nations on stand by that we can all use to flood Regions taken by DEN which I bet is what they do as well. Only way to "Raid" a Region is if the one leading it has more votes/endorsements then the current WA Delegate. Luna has a Decent amount to keep her spot, and the Founder can just kick out the Raiders. And even if DEN managed to Raid here, the Founder could just set everything back the way it was thus making the Raid pointless. Most Regions have lost their Founders and are easier to raid and not really worth liberating if no one is there to watch over the Founderless regions. DEN don't seem to bother with Regions with an active Founder and a decent number of Nations in them. Only regions they did take that had a Founder are the small Regions with mostly just 3-10 people in them.

If you haven't Endorsed Luna, I suggest you do it now. That goes for any Nation that is in the WA.

We strongly second this suggestion. Some regions go as far as requiring their WA nations to endorse the Delegate or get booted. We don't do this; however, endorsing the Delegate is your best way (short of our password-protecting the region, which we only do in case of zombie invasion) to prevent raiding. Currently Princess Luna has 16 out of a possible 21 endorsements; good, but we can do better.

As for the proposed alliance--we have no recommendations for or against. We can say with pride that the Pony Lands have never been raided; Princess Luna's endorsement count is enough to deter all but the most determined raiders, and as your Founder remains active here, a raid would be futile anyway. The raiding regions generally go after easier prey. We assume that Pony Lands' participation in the alliance, if we choose to join, would be in sending aid rather than asking for it.

There's also the fact that the delegacy here has no powers outside the WA, so they couldn't even make any changes in the first place..

I don't understand how this raiding thing even works. From what I do get, you would need to join a region and gain their trust to get a high rank so you can tear it apart, but that should never happen. It should take years to gain the member's trust enough to even be considered getting such a rank, and even then, the founder can just say no.

In most cases, raiding only works when a founder is inactive and the region is fairly small. Then, players with lots of alts just flood the region, endorse their own delegate, and take control to do what they wish. PL isn't as likely to be raided because we have an active founder and lots of original players as opposed to just a few with some alts.
