If anyone had any real beef with the game. *and* they had actual talent. They could still "suicide" effectively, but its not really sustainable - in terms of trying to RP a repuation. Thats what I like best about the changeset. It nerfed flufftalkers.

Spooge would have did just fine under the new rules (which is why we did it how we did it). Another crew could easily turn up like we did and wreck netters (inc. me - im one of those no def suckers too now!) but at least they would have to put in the effort to cause *real* damage.

For me thats what changed the game. Before: "almost 0 effort could wreck anyone", After: "In order to truly hurt the top guys, you have to be one of the top guys"

Flap flap flap around the details, but thats the nub of it and I think things are general better as a result.

I have no idea how I did it, I was just kind on autopilot (I try and spend as little time as possible grabbing!) but the absolute millisecond I did it I realised what I had done.

Im sure thats not the only thing I'm doing wrong, for some reason I haven't been able to get rolling. Dunno what I did differently last set :/

Not trying to be rude, but I have no idea what you just said.


understood it to mean that sometimes retaling with a grab is not strictly economically viable, e.g a commie can retal anyone early on. someone else might have to build up to retal - they might strictly be better (end NW wise) sucking up the hit.

(then goes on to talk about always recalling one way or another, perhaps alluding to notion that its not always about pure numbers but also about "diplomatic relations" going forwards!)

I know what you mean - though having held through several dumps now (2008 was fun as it was my first!) it seems to me that it always ends up back where it was and usually higher!

I can see the value in accumulating dry powder though, always nice to scoop up bargains! :)

yeah with stonks so pumped up right now any correction is going to be felt less in the big corps. TSLA is super hot potato. Would not buy, but can't bring myself to exit totally.

not sure I like that dividend tax! Fortunately all my dealings are done within the SIPP wrapper so no tax on profits (it will be taxed as income when I draw down on it in retirement)

There’s thousands of people smarter than you and with better tools that don’t win.



Who hacked Chevs? This is good advice!

Had a SIPP for 10+ years (similar to a 401k) started out with just AAPL, but as they rose I took profits and diversified. Regular monthly contribution. Buy and hold for long term.

My biggest "loser" at moment is MO at -25% however I have continued to add to the position since I first bought in 2014. It yields 8% so im not really concerned, cigarettes are becoming increasingly unpopular, but nicotine is addictive as hell :)

My biggest winner is TSLA +492% since 2016, and it terrifies me because it seems so massive overvalued. I've trimmed it twice and probably will again when it splits at the end of the month.

AAPL still going strong at +346% since 2014 (but that was date I moved from a different provider, have been holding them since 2009!)

BRK.B, AMZN, XOM are also decent bets imho.

Like playing poker its about protecting your bankroll, not winning monster hands.

Market looks overvalued right now, but with all the helicopter money off the back of covid it wouldn't surprise me if it continues to make higher highs.

I miss the Monsters too, but I'm really glad I moved to SoL. I really enjoy war. The netting skills I learned with the Monsters are very useful, not surprisingly. The two week wars we've been having recently have been excellent fun. If any of the Monsterz would like to join us for war this set we'd be glad to have you. Meanwhile, keep up the good work and good luck!


You make a massively underrated point imho. Best warrers benefit from being best netters :)

There is more truth to this than most realise.

I ain't kidding. Read the latest research in virology and epigenetics. Just because 0.0x% people die of a virus doesn't mean that it is inherently evil.

It's a modern day global trolley problem. I don't envy policy makers right now. Damned if they do, damned if they don't.

There is little to none research on the invisible effects on the 99%+ that survive. A wealth of information on bacteriophages and viruses as just a small cog in a big machine that is the trillions of moving parts that make up the body.

I hate to post this because people close to me have been affected grievously, but the truth is often complicated and touches on very sensitive realities. I think the truth is important though, and it must be found for the benefit of all that remain.
