To clarify this latest announcement, the volatility of MOCpages, and the lovely moderation system on this website, your World Court submission is due by 1pm PDT on Saturday, April 21. This date may be subject to change, so stay tuned.

And no, we don't have an official Department of Congruity. Hope nobody needs it.

Thankyou Chief Magistrate. After the vote to decide which Territory Group will be struck by this unfortunate MILPO famine, there will immediately follow an election to re-elect CM Boyle or choose his successor.

In a few minutes, I will open the voting once more for the election of a new Chief Magistrate. CM Boyle has served with distinction but will not be standing. You CAN still vote for him however, or indeed anyone on the map.

Fellow Generals, respected members of the DAS, good DA3 people.

After a month of battles under the wise ruling of our esteemed Chief Magistrate Patrick Boyle, it is time for something new.

A few years back, the fine institution that is the World Court came to life. Its first Chief Magistrate ever was Jimi Mojo, a benevolent, music loving guy who tried to bring a little peace to a world at war. Alas, communists and spacemen don't seem to love rock'n'roll, and his reign was brief, if not unpleasant.

That is why, in memory of this great leader, I, General Remy of the TAU, am running for Chief Magistrate of The World Court in the election to come.

Many of you knew me before this war. Many others know me as a part of a not so hidden alliance. But all of you should know this: I'll be fair, and I'll be hearing your pleas.

Now vote in good conscience, and may the best General win!

Right where I left them, in a place communists are not aware of.

YEEAAAAAH! Sorry.

Hello good people of DA3, Generals and civilians alike!

As the new Chief Magistrate of our overcrowded planet, it is my pleasure and honour to share this week's issue with you. A week that has been full of events, with nations falling, empires spreading and shrinking, a new CM... I even heard about some betrayal! Lots of action, but aren't we here for that? Come on, I know you want more blood!

So here it is, proposition 3 :


Reinforcements :

ONE player will be granted the ability, in the next AW only, to mount ONE more attack than his usual entitlement. All MILPO dividing rules and range restrictions / penalties continue to apply. To be decided by a free vote in the WC.


As usual, the voting window will open very soon so that you and I can, democratically, influence the fate of this global war. Please give this issue the consideration it deserves.

Thank you for your time and attention, that will be all.

~ Chief Magistrate of The World Court Tom Remy of the TAU.

ATTENTION IN THE THUNDERDOME!

Hello fellow Generals!

In times of war, every nation needs a little break! That is why it is my pleasure to declare open the official…
"Olympiades de l'Action Décisive 3"!

This is a building challenge. A vote by the World Court will decide the winner. He or she will get to DOUBLE the DIPLO of his or her flag.
There will be no voting today. The challenge starts NOW and your entry must be approved by the DAS or me before voting starts at noon PDT on Tuesday 5/22/18.

Specifications :

1. You must build a diorama of a minimum size of 32 x 32 studs. This minimum size includes the audience (spec 4).
The scale is entirely up to the builder, from microscale (where people can still be seen) to large brick-built figures, and including minifig scale.

2. You must choose only one sport to build. It has to be an existing modern or ancient sport, but it has to be a real one. It can come from a distant culture or era, be it benji, catch, curling or gladiator fight... But you can also choose soccer or tennis!
Mechanical sports or invented sports are excluded.

3. Your diorama must feature at least one sportsman/woman. They must belong to one or more nations of Decisive Action 3, and be identified as such in the build and the writing.

4. Your diorama must feature an audience on a stand or terrace.

Make it beautiful, we don't want placeholders!

- Your devoted and not so belligerent Chief Magistrate of The World Court, General Remy of the TAU.

Why bother with the actual build? The winner is going to be the person who can rally his alliance's voting block to vote for him, even if he just puts up a placeholder. If the WC building challenge is any indication, quality of build will have zero impact on the results. Using likes to decide the winner would be a far better way to do it if you actually want players to build something respectable.

Yeah... I really have no inspiration to build for this. I’d much rather spend my time and effort on rebuilding one of the CATs.

And before you all say it, yes, I know I’m in the alliance that “rigged” the first building challenge.
Permalink
| May 16, 2018, 3:40 pm
Or, we can all just vote for the build we like instead of rallying alliance members? Is it so hard to detach from the alliance play and just have some fun, especially since the reward is not a gamechanger?

You have proof from the first time that's not the way things should go, make it different this time around.

I’d honestly be fine with that.

But would others do it?

That's how I plan to vote, but the incentive to actually build something is pretty low, given that I have historical evidence that not all players are going to vote that way. My time is probably much better spent speculatively building a space program or re-building one of the earlier categories.

I assume that the "real sport" clause eliminates "jugging" as a possible subject. Did Cmdr. Goldman actually approve of that? ;-)
Permalink
| May 16, 2018, 4:05 pm
I don't know what "jugging" is :D

But I would like to say that I for myself will sincerely vote for the build I prefer. I regret not having done that for TWC building.

As your CM, I strongly advise all Generals to do the same, it will only improve 1) the quality of builds and 2) the general atmosphere of the game!

I can pretty much guarantee that speculatively building something for the upcoming categories would be pointless.

I'll happily agree to vote for the best build without any alliance influence whatsoever. I would also agree that my motivation to get a build in within the short window is nil due to my need to finish the prior published spec mocs in the first place! Gots to get MILPO so my alien invasion can take this time ;) Too bad, it is a neat idea for sure, and I absolutely hope some of the players will find time to do it!

I intend to vote for the most pathetic placeholder of the lot! But only if the builder is in my alliance, The Super Secret Hidden Heroes In Tulsa. Of which there are no heroes because it's Tulsa and it's a wretched place. Likely filled with firetrucks. And broken wagon wheels in every front yard. And a Camaro. And a dishwasher. Maybe a few chickens. God, I hate Tulsa. I'll return to my beer and leave you all to mull things over a bit. cheers.

With the number of players (including myself) who are already struggling to keep up with MILPO builds, this could be an easy win for someone. Still I agree with Doug, hopefully we will see some great entries!

I'm confident we will. Some of you have filled their ORBAT, and that's a nice shift from military builds for the week-end, while we wait for the new categories!

Attention in the Thunderdome!

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.
