[Question] April Fools Event 2019 Is Trivia!

Postby Caspian Settlement » Wed Mar 27, 2019 4:30 pm

I remember that prior April Fools' events have occurred earlier then April Fools', although I'm unsure whether one will be occurring this year, especially with all of the hard work put into Cards.

Any thoughts/updates/predictions on this?

EDIT:

Per Wrapper's post (given that it's Voice of Mod), any new thoughts/updates/predictions?


I've lost my trust of Wrapper. However, trivia is quite fun!

Don't they usually start around midnight on 1 April, Australia time (so middle of the day on 31 March in the United States)?

Season 2 of Card Trading, meaning more new cards for some newer nations in the past year?

True, although the event's beginning differs from time to time - I remember World Assembly Secretary-General elections started relatively early for an April Fools' event.

Possible, especially if it came with more features.

I'd prefer something else, if I'm being honest. We're all expecting Cards 2, and I'm all carded out.

I don't see why it would be that, or at least, exclusively that. Each year they try to make it something pretty unique, and stuff that sticks like z-day get moved away from april fools

Honestly, that would be a good joke. However, Max Barry's not interested in jokes. Only Total Immersion Events, as I like the call them.

As for me, I'd like to think it will be a war feature.

Hmmmmmm.... okay, for real though, let's see, for the last 4 years (if memory serves me) there's been bytecoins, cards against nationstates, nukes, and trading cards. So it's almost certainly going to be a "minigame". None of those were based on current events (or at least within a single nation - such as Brexit), and all of them were social events to some extent. If I had to guess, (and this is just wild speculation), I'm gonna say Space Race. :P

How could you put International Respect For Chickens Day over Star Wars Day?
"Pi, the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter, and this is just the beginning; it keeps on going, forever, without ever repeating. Which means that contained within this string of decimals, is every single other number. Your birthdate, combination to your locker, your social security number, it's all in there, somewhere. And if you convert these decimals into letters, you would have every word that ever existed in every possible combination; the first syllable you spoke as a baby, the name of your latest crush, your entire life story from beginning to end, everything we ever say or do; all of the world's infinite possibilities rest within this one simple circle. Now what you do with that information; what it's good for, well that would be up to you."

I think this year is inspired by a smartphone game that became very popular since 2017, and was developed by the same people behind a video hosting service.

NationStates always seems to capitalise on a craze, including IPOs, zombies, and cryptocurrency. Even last year’s theme took a poke at the loot box controversy.
