Made it to level 6 today by fighting like a hardcore mofo :D
This is going to be such a mess when we are all trying to apply for citizenship in a month, which will leave many people frustrated, and eventually quit because they are pending.
[QUOTE=monkey11;35519706]This is going to be such a mess when we are all trying to apply for citizenship in a month, which will leave many people frustrated, and eventually quit because they are pending.[/QUOTE] Don't you think Korea will be kind of suspicious about the mass amount of people migrating to the country?
I think the battle of Smalad Scania is going to be won by Lithuania. Then there's only one region away from the capital of Sweden.
Man, my job is really good. I get 11.33 LTL with level 2 economy level.

Signed up as trafficman, got to level 5 in the first day.

[QUOTE=monkey11;35519706]This is going to be such a mess when we are all trying to apply for citizenship in a month, which will leave many people frustrated, and eventually quit because they are pending.[/QUOTE] DVH said he is working on talking to Korea's leadership [I]somehow[/I] so hopefully that won't be a problem by then. What I'm more concerned about is establishing a strong base. From glancing over the old eRepublik thread it seemed FP had already started off with a successful company. Right now, we don't have that luxury. So what I'd like is for most of us to come to a consensus on what to do, [B]specifically,[/B] on getting our own company and [I]maybe[/I] a Military Unit. [B]Warning: The following was typed at 1 in the morning. If you have trouble understanding, it's my fault.[/B] Right now, all South Korean companies (as in companies owned by South Korean citizens) make Guns and Defense Systems. For a best case scenario there would need to be four Companies. A FP Grain, FP Food, FP Diamonds, and FP Gifts company. The slaves in the Grain and Diamond companies will produce raw materials which the Food and Gift companies will buy, and then their slaves will create the actual products consumable and demanded by the entire game community. At first it will be just Facepunchers buying Facepunch products in a giant circlejerk of money. As other people not affiliated with us buy our products, our wealth (and therefore our ability to get better equipment) shall increase. How will this money get there in the first place? Simple. Lithuanian money is valuable right now. Only $20 of it will get you a bar of Gold. Using this easy gold, we can start up new companies much more easily than if we used Korean money. You'd have to spend $60 Korean to get 1 bar of gold, yet selling the bar will get you $28 Korean. So the cycle goes like this 20LIT > 1G > 28KOR 20LIT < 1G < 60KOR [B]TL;DR[/B] Facepunch companies will abuse us 1920's style to create ultra cheap goods which we (and other Koreans) can then use to fight more to get more xp. The money will get there by exploiting the booming economy of Lithuania to convert their money to Gold to Korean money.
Something that needs to be considered is that companies cannot be moved. We need to ideally start one in SK with a large amount of capital or start one in Lithuania and sell it when we're more coordinated.
Yeah that was the main benefit we had going for us last time, is that we had a core of seasoned veterans with high levels and a solid bank of gold. That is what allowed us to be so successful economically. Then we also had myself and monkey11 and a small few others who were able to befriend the eSK leaders and gain citizenship, and because they trusted us, we were able to grant some citizenship. The other thing was that the majority of all our members started up in eSK, so we didnt have to worry about them getting citizenship, because they had it naturally.
Ok, read my post 3 posts up. What do you think? It's pretty much things that have already been said but it's nice to group it back together in one spot.
These pay-cuts are killing me.. My family will starve to death in the summer!
Once the initial gold rush of the level 7's are over, we'll still probably need more to make the other companies and since a lot of us are on board with working for peanuts, there's no way they can fail.

[URL="http://e-sim.org/article.html?id=23446"]http://e-sim.org/article.html?id=23446[/URL] It might help you in being more persuasive. If the Korean government refuses our coming in 30 days time, it'll mess up our plans bigtime. No pressure.
[QUOTE=Hidole555;35520831]DVH said he is working on talking to Korea's leadership [I]somehow[/I] so hopefully that won't be a problem by then. [/QUOTE] But when a lot of the old germans tried to go to Korea, in eRepublic, it didnt matter that Facepunch was loved by the community, there is a limited number of passes per month, and so not everyone is going to get in right away.

[/QUOTE] Like I said, I'd highly recommend Abdul for the job if he's willing to do it (and if he goes by that name in e-sim). He ran the business before and it went beautifully. However a military unit Im going to vote "nay" because when we're trying to come across as a friendly ally to help Korea, toting guns is not necessarily the best image. I am just confused what reason we have to start in Lithuania, and not be born directly in Korea? The reason we used czech was because firstly there were no immigration laws, when we were ready to move, we just all moved, swarming the country, and because it was a military action, and we wanted that element of surprise.
Give me a couple of hours, it's still morning and my iPod can't handle Esim well. And regarding that plan, I'm still thinking about the details.

[/QUOTE]Basically this. In eSK I was so incredibly loaded you have no idea. I could have funded the better half of a war on my own. And we need to make diplomatic contact with eSK as soon as possible, because the more warning, the better. And before anyone else joins in Lithuania, and becomes a citizenship burden down the line, I think someone needs to take a hard look at our game plan. And also, I think it is crucially important to name everything we do as an operation, somehow I think it makes the game more fun, and keeps everyone better up to date. The other thing was that the majority of all our members started up in eSK, so we didnt have to worry about them getting citizenship, because they had it naturally.

I hope he will work hard on this since we need more players. [/QUOTE] That'll be a good month for them.
Also who is leading this, DVH, Scientist2, Hidole555? As much as I love how many people are involved, for this initial communication, we need a strong figurehead, leader sort of position, so that we can easily communicate with the SKers. [editline]10th April 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=Freakie;35521769]That'll be a good month for them.[/QUOTE] We can, and should use that to our advantage.

If we all just plopped into South Korea, we'd be a group with little in a country with little. It'll be much faster and profitable by leeching off of the success of Lithuania and switching over to South Korea when we're ready. [editline]11th April 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=monkey11;35521738]That doesnt look right...

DVH seems to be taking the role of FP-SK relations (for lack of a better term), Scientist2 will be receiving all the gold so he'll probably end up running the FP companies unless he chooses someone else, and I like to view myself as some sort of planner or organizer whose purpose is to retain FP interest and the health of our operation. I don't really want to say there is one central leader since some sense of agreement should be met on things so we don't do anything wrong.

This way less people will make it to Korea, and we are actually minimizing how much we are able to do. And the conversion rate being that close to equal both ways is ridiculous, but apparently it is true. Very strange.

I'll direct any newcomers to head only to South Korea for now.
