Dear sir, I have 3k Strat troops and some gear that I'm not using.

But no way I'm parting with my mighty force for less than 1,001 silver.

Right. Ideally people just accept that plate is so expensive that it'll be a luxury rarely seen on the battlefield until later on (if at all), but old habits die hard and there will likely be still be some factions camping until they can march entirely shiny armies.

I think a majority do that.

And how much more or less likely are you then to use the army in battle when it took you 2-4 times longer to assemble?

Ofc, any change that makes camping less powerful or rewards aggression more could change that balance. Equally anything making battles in general much more appealing to Strat players and mercs might make people eager to start fighting without first waiting weeks.

I hope plate armour doesn't simply receive a price increase.

When we've done proportional price increases in the past, rather than changing player's behaviour or army compositions significantly it just led to players hoarding silver for longer until they could field the same armies as before.

It would be good if a more creative solution could be found. IMO price rises (without also changing player behaviour) just makes players even more reluctant to risk their days/weeks of trading by attacking something. On it's own a price increase just increases the amount of trade required to get the same volume of battles, which I dont think we want.

She can't be proven wrong, but It could be proven that certain people conspired to fabricate the whole story if that was the case.

She wanted his nomination turned down because of the emotional trauma she went through all these years from the alleged sexual assault.

Even if she's lying, I'd be surprised if there was some big conspiracy around this.

It sounds like her angle is that she wants to punish him personally, rather than any statement on his suitability for the role itself. Bleh.

i agree with a lot of this bro and if it makes you feel any better about the council, I feel really fucking good about it, and I've never had a good feeling about cRPG idea teams. We have a list of nearly 40 topics, each one of which has a thread of its own in a new board and everyone is posting some good info and ideas.

practically everything you brought up here is on that list of topics, LOL, hopefully I am not breaking an NDA by saying this.

i think next strat will be really fresh

That's really good to hear. One good thing about having a fairly large council is that it increases the chances of one of you anticipating consequences that a suggested change might have.

I hope we can get some meaningful changes, now is the perfect time to try new things.

I think you might be a little misconstrued. Dr. Ford risked a lot going in front of senators and in front of millions of people on television. Her life is never going to be the same as Judge Kavanaugh, I say that is more than zero risk. Doesn't confirming the Judge, the opposite of Women are always right, Man always the wrong argument?

What did she risk? A group of people saying that either they can't positively confirm her story (without claiming she's wrong) or that it actually doesnt impact his ability his suitability for this role decades later?

Because of the vague nature of her claim, she literally cannot be proven wrong. She doesnt risk her career in any shape or form, she can never be found culpable for anything. Compare that to the position Kavanaugh is in, will his life in the US be the same after this?

It just blows my mind that she waited close to 40 years, had absolutely no evidence, even her own friends don't back her claims,  and only brings it up now that he's about to get elected to the Supreme Court.  Keep in mind this lady is a professional Psychologist, Professor of Psychology and worked as a high paid consultant to Pharmaceutical companies, she is by no means the innocent naive dummy act she played in the hearing. 

I may be ignorant on this detail, but has she said what she actually wants out of this?

I'm not honestly expecting him to sue, it wouldnt be smart in the current climate.

But it's dumb that this is a subject that can take off with zero evidence, and that the accuser risks nothing and could freely lie through their teeth.
