So what have we learned today?

A place for governments-in-exile, plucky survivors, unlucky survivors, the horrifically mutated, and other assorted characters to ride out the nuclear hellstorm until it's safe to go outside again.

That there are no winners in nuclear war, and there is no radiation in Ba Sing Se.

What have you all learned this day?

Even though I've been neutral the whole time, I learned that bigger factions are bigger targets in general.

I learned that factions with lots of alts may get many early leads, but their inherent weakness is the user behind the accounts. Like any human, they have lives, they require food, sleep, and other such things. A faction composed primarily of alts has huge weaknesses when many of these super-users log off to go to sleep or do other things. Then they get nuked into oblivion.

Didn't bring any of my alts into this (honestly couldn't be arsed to), but I joined the Horsemen, which had a lot of alts. Now I'm gone and so is most of the Horsemen, when those alts were all offline.

Much as people may bitch about alts in games like this (and rightly so), the strategy is not without serious flaws. A more balanced faction that isn't overly reliant on alts for its success is more likely to come out on top.

Hope everyone has been having a good N-Day.

No, I don't. I saw this very thing unfold on my own in the Horsemen. When I went to bed, Horsemen defenders were shooting down almost every nuke headed our way. When I logged back on, we were no longer at the top, most of us were nuked to oblivion, and it didn't take much longer for me to get nuked to oblivion.

The balance of power changed because the super-users had to log off sometime, and when they did, they could no longer shoot down the thousands of nukes that had been heading to us nearly every few seconds. While some more extreme persons who happen to have the luxury of being able to stay up and logged on for the entirety of N-Day may choose to do so, that is not most people, or even most gamers.
