Australia is nothing like that unless you head out into some of the dodgy outback towns where they just shoot people.

In the city there used to be areas that you couldn't walk through without getting stabbed. Recently I was walking near one of the worse spots, theres still police everywhere but I saw an international student walk down the previously worst street in Sydney like it was nothing. Going down that street 5-10 years ago was asking to be stabbed. They appeared to have improved the area by moving all the people that lived there away... though I am not sure where too.

The subburb was dodgy, but that street had the reputation that was from the 70s, there used to be only one path maintained by a police presence from 7am to 6am that you could walk through. Apart from that one student, everyone else kept to the normal path that you walk through the subburb.

Its the problem with the polling methodology. Only people that had strong views signed up, thus the resutls were skewed.

[quote poster=NightShade; 7576; 130685]Oh come on... the United Soviet Socialist States of America would be fluffing awesome!

We have ex-members of the communist party in the leadership of Australia now... they want to/are doing:

-Copy China's censorship of the internet for unrated content, including political and social content they disapprove of.
-Lower places in higher education like university
-Let in all illegal immigrants whilst reducing legal skilled immigrant numbers
-be politcal friends with China until accused of being friends with China, then going out of their way to offend China like idiots.
-Instead of doing anything meaningful, increase surveillance on companies, supermarkets, petrol stations, primary schools, internet logs. We are watching you, so do as we say!!!
-pay union mates money to do important stuff like... making sure recreational facilities are all in order or ensure the 'correct' developers get the contracts.

Its a great system, I highly recommend it.

I agree with SaRaveok, its easy to buy an external case for your hard drive ($20-40) and then you can connect it to your computer via USB. Though it depends whether there is a computer store near where you live.

I would just like to say that so far Imag's performance has be commendable, with a good HPK and now good walling, which is evident from the high-ish HPK Sol has.

I believe credit is well deserved, that they still choose to fight despite the odds and rather than accepting a ceasefire, choose to stick to their beliefs and ideologies. This is something that should not be disrespected.

I have fought against and with Imag on many occassions, and I believe that insulting their clan is uncalled for.

I think Clinton was pretty good except for some of his tastes in women.

You can blame Obama's policies for not helping the working class man enough however what they prevented was a second great depression. Think more like global 60% unemployment and ten years to recover.

On the otherhand, executive bonuses are totally disconnected from actual company performance, with the arguement 'we have to pay to get the best and to be competitive'. Its rather pathetic, because the stockmarket likes short term profit not long term stability. Goldern parachutes are a joke too. Here's half a billion dollars for running the company into the ground and helping destroy the world economy YAY!!.

Good storage = excuse not to introduce decay into oil.

Oil unlike cash and bushels is not as great to stockpile as the market value crashes near the end of the reset. As a result decay is not needed.

Why don't we get oil when we capture land? surely there are some marsh land that we capture :O

Incorrect, the Australian Labor governments hates universities and education. They effectively destroyed the university sector by reducing the number of international students by 40% nationally over 4 years (a loss of 2 billion dollars). Which will result in a 10-20% decline in domestic student places that were subsidised. Labor also banned full fee paying domestic students which reduced numbers by a further 5%.

Thats a 25% reduction in domestic student places over 4 years...
yay education. Rather than increasing conditions for cadetships in trade occupations, simiply slash the number of university graduates. yay!

5% number does not count hardcore unemployeed who are not looking for work so it is a slight underestimation.

We are aiming to be number one warring alliance, we have always proclaimed netting clans to be better at us at netting. Solers merely say that we can netgain, not that we are anywhere near best. Our morals prevent that or at least in the past they did. That becomes culture and values.

I agree a netting ranking, warring ranking and a combined ranking would be better.

I agree. This should be a lot of fun. And more to what Thomas said, I think the advantage in countries will even out to a great extent with the organizational advantage of using one website. It will be a great contest.

To put it out there ahead of time, I think if SOF is able to win you won't see a real turn around for the first 2 weeks. Restart rates more than anything should prove the contest.


From my experience coordinating with other clans, if Evo leads the warchats and all the other clan members turn up and do as they are told, then its less of an issues. However cracks always start to occur particularly due to style and preference.

When coordinating with netgaining clans, they are sometimes not willing to trash their country to take down a large target. Or working with smaller clans, their attendance and restart rates are lower. Working with warclans they have different preferences for missile use, target selection, troops or jets etc.

I'd say it would be two weeks before cracks appear all over the place due to pressure from Sof. I believe Sof will have an attendance and restart advantage over some of the clans fighting against them.

Yes but some Laf members, not Laf clan, have done some dodgy stuff whilst they were over committed to winning at netgaining. The same point is true for Evo to.

I don't believe there were official policies by either clan to do some dodgy things. However overcommitted members most likely acted on their own. My opinion both clans are/were lax in certain areas, where it came to enforcing ethics.

From what I know of both clans and members I know;
Evo had coodinaton problems for a long time which let people get away with things.
Laf in the distant past (eg 5 years ago), used to turn a blind eye to activities that helped netgaining.

FA chains are probably the only thing that was coodinated and thats hardly that dodgy from my perspective.

I am not bashing either clan, merely giving a realistic opinion in a thread dominated by flaming. No clan is perfect, every clan has made mistakes.

*bangs head on the wall to stop laughing*

I remember in highschool year 9 (years ago), it was in one class, and there were a lot of guys in our grade at the time playing earth (eg. 100). There were Solers, Lafers and maybe camelot? discussing strategy, when one of our class mates joined in and they asked what clan he was in, and he said He joined Sof, and the other guy replied "you better be careful who you say that too, you might get bashed"

hahahahaha omg its funny, the next year these were the guys that tried to go full ganster. Some of them did end up in jail (gaol) though :X.

That was pretty much my point Hanlong. I am generally pro-laf and pro-Evo, but both sides are accusing each other of stuff that both sides have done at some stage and both sides are saying that its unfair.

If the forum had a point system I'd vote hanlong +1 and Jelly -1.

Its like two pots calling each other a black kettle. Both sides need to control your members beter if they are doing unsanctioned dodgy things. Or live with people slagging off.

Insiders do not forgive outsiders for the same transgressions they make. It doesn't take a psychology degree to know that... well it might.

Laf had land farms in 2001, I watched lafers in my high school library doing it. They would gs themselves a bit then take a ton of retails.

That certainly doesn't mean it was sanctioned but it was done quite a lot. I punched a dude over it cause I though it was cheating.
