Attention in the Thunderdome. Attention in the Thunderdome.
This is a timely warning for all nations planning an attack tomorrow. The attack window will open in approximately 15 hours. At that time, the ORBAT will be locked.
Currently, you all seem to have a National Flag and a Mechanized Infantry Squad MOC. That is GOOD. However, at least 10 of you have mistakes on your ORBAT. That is BAD. The mistakes I checked for include proper number of territories and accurate resource counts. Mistakes will be counted against YOU in the AW. You cannot gain a competitive advantage from any typo, and you will almost certainly cost yourself something instead.
Act wisely. This error does not discriminate between veterans or new players. Cross your t's and dot your i's, everybody. Especially those of you with only one territory... I don't know how Keith will rule an attack made by a nation with ZERO territories listed on their ORBAT.
This is a timely warning. I did not check links. Be sure yours are activated.
It appears that some of you are not posting links to your creations in the MOC EVALUATION REQUESTS thread. This has been strongly recommended because the group pool is not necessarily secure. Keith has been checking the pool anyway to catch any MOCs that otherwise slip through the cracks, but I haven't been doing that.
PLEASE be sure to post a link to your creation in the MOC EVALUATION REQUESTS thread rather than simply adding it to the group pool. This will guarantee that I will see it and evaluate it, even if it is down to the wire.
For that matter, get your MOCs in as soon as possible. I can only do so much in the last few minutes before AW3 opens.
I'm commandeering this mic once again to inform you all that Attack Window 3 will commence with its usual fanfare at 1pm PDT TODAY, Sunday. Please be prepared, as this is less than an hour and a half away. Expect an extra warning at the 30-minute and 5-minute marks. Fix those ORBATS, and get ready to attack.
One more announcement. The limited-time World Court building challenge has been extended until the ORBAT closes before the AW3. If your EVALUATION REQUEST is in before the ORBAT closes, then I will review it and approve (if you meet the specs). If I do not approve it before the AW, you may add it to your ORBAT once my approval is in and the ORBAT thread is unlocked again.
Players, please note that any affiliations I may have had in game will have no bearing on future decisions. I WILL NOT be looking at any private treaty groups I may have been a member of. Other members are now Admins of those groups and may kick me out if they wish.
Get in fast because no late entries will be accepted.
Due to the server switch outage on Wednesday, there will be TWO World Court votes next week. No later than noon PDT Tuesday 29/5/18 for CM Remy's next proposal and he'll be standing for re-election immediately after. Permalink
Everyone! The impending fate of MOCpages, heralded by the yellow banner at the top of your screens, is about to be decided. In the event that this website is offline for more than the scheduled time, your DAS has set up two different internet locations for you to congregate at. It will require you to make another account, but hopefully one of these is more hospitable to your preferences.
Everything updated or posted after last Wednesday is lost, including everybody's orreries. This need not be a catastrophe, and even if it doesn't come back we can reinstate it all, but that will take time.
The site isn't stable enough right now and it wouldn't be fair on all players to proceed with the AW today.
We hope to get one in tomorrow if all goes well. In the meantime, make sure your ORBATs are updated because info on them since Wednesday has been reset.
As you know, due to the outages we have had no World Court activity this week. Chief Magistrate Remy should be up for re-election but that will now happen next week (mocpages gods permitting).
CM Remy will have a proposition for the Court no later than noon PDT on Tuesday 6/5/18 and he will stand for re-election immediately afterwards. Although this term was longer he will have made the planned number of proposals for this term of office.
May the gods of mocpages be with us all. Permalink
You may have noticed that the update notice says it is now planned for Thursday through Friday morning, instead of starting in a few hours. That gets pretty close to the AW, but if they stick to schedule, there should be a 7 hour window. Your DAS cannot guarantee an AW will be held even if the website is operational, but our most optimistic forecast projects that we will hold an AW if MOCpages is back online at least 2 hours before the 1pm PDT. There very well may be some nasty side-effects of the update, lost MOCs, or anything in between, and if these problems are too great to circumvent, we will again reschedule. Expect to see more communication from DAS on Friday, granted the servers come back at all.
We are still considering the most fair way to account for lost points during the various outages. We shall reach a decision by the time battle calculations are made after the next AW. Permalink
