Entropy: June 2021 Chaotic Council Elections

The Chaotic Dominion of Entropy



Region | Discord | Regional Dispatches | About Entropy | How We Began



Overview

Forged in the 100 day purifying fire of chaos within, Entropy now stands against stagnation and the established world order throughout NationStates. Entropy is a national sovereigntist region, standing against the overreach and excesses of the WA General Assembly. We are also an independent region in the true sense of the word, conducting diplomacy and pursuing military operations only insofar as they benefit the interests of Entropy, and equally willing to defend or invade based on our interests. Finally, we are proud to be a user-created region as part of our core identity, and we stand in solidarity with other like-minded UCRs to build a world in which our regions wield power and influence proportionate to the numbers and effort we contribute to NationStates.

We are here to shake things up. Are you ready for it?



The Chaotic Council

Chaos Queen: Rigel
Community Councillor: Sho
Foreign Councillor: Josh
Integration Councillor: Altino

Nah, and just for that you'll be getting a counter-campaign, blocked, and I won't approve any of your future proposals, serious or otherwise. Perhaps I'll counter-campaign all your future proposals - I haven't decided yet.

Have a great day!

A few things:

1. Are you threatening me in your official capacity as The East Pacific's Minister of World Assembly Affairs?

2. Perhaps you may not have noticed I'm a Delegate who can decline to approve or vote against your proposals as well. Perhaps you may not have considered that I, too, know how to work a counter-campaign. Perhaps you may not have noticed that I'm pretty damn effective when I put my mind to something. Above all, perhaps you may not have noticed I have a few friends. But you'll notice now.

3. Cope harder.

Lol. Head back to the GA Wally. With this and whatever that TWP threat was a few months ago, your threats are about as empty as the current SC queue.

Buddy, you've already threatened me, and I seem to get by. Maybe I'm wrong though, and you've become even more petty and vindictive than you were two years ago.

Can I get some elaboration on what you will be quorum raiding? I was originally under the impression that it will only be proposals you don't like, but I can't be too sure.

Were you not going to be doing this when we raided regardless? :p

Wallenburg wrote:No, although it's quite clear that you are threatening every WA author, including myself, in your official capacities.

Nonsense. We have no intention of quorum raiding every WA resolution, nor even every WA resolution we dislike, because that wouldn't even be feasible. We'll be saving quorum raiding for proposals we find to be particularly bothersome (like yours, now). The idea we're threatening "every WA author" is absurd.

Wallenburg wrote:Buddy, you've already threatened me, and I seem to get by. Maybe I'm wrong though, and you've become even more petty and vindictive than you were two years ago.

I don't even remember what you're talking about now so I suppose I've become less vindictive, but you did hop into Entropy's thread to threaten my future WA proposals -- totally unprovoked, I might add -- so I'd think turnabout is fair play, wouldn't you? I wouldn't bet on your next proposal reaching quorum.

Jedinsto wrote:Can I get some elaboration on what you will be quorum raiding? I was originally under the impression that it will only be proposals you don't like, but I can't be too sure.

That's correct, it would be limited to proposals we don't like. I'm unsure why we would quorum raid any other proposals. It won't even be every proposal we don't like, because as a national sovereigntist region we don't like most General Assembly proposals. It wouldn't be feasible to quorum raid them all. That said, I don't want to understate or downplay what we intend to do to seem like I'm trying to soothe anyone. We'll absolutely quorum raid whenever we feel like it.

It comes from years of overinflated egos bouncing off overinflated egos in GP. If it were so easy for them to fuck with P2TM or Sports or whatever as it is for them to fuck with the GA, they would do that too.

General Assembly resolutions impact national stats and roleplaying, though the former is my primary concern. I've been a national sovereigntist who opposes most GA resolutions since I started playing NationStates almost 9 1/2 years ago, but I never made it a priority beyond voting against GA resolutions I didn't like.

Secondarily, it comes from people like Wallenburg insisting the GA is "their" game when it is in fact part of the game for everyone.

If you want to play in the GA, that's fine by me. You're the only side here that wants to shut down the entire game whenever someone does something you don't like or don't care about.

So, is this quorum raiding going to be targeted at specific proposals? Or will it be a blanket policy of quorum raiding every GA proposal?

Interesting to see Cormac take Entropy down a very UCR centric route. Best of luck - it'd be nice to show up and coming UCRs that you don't need to rely on a GCR to grow.

What is this "shut down the entire game"? If you're going to continue with this overdramatized hyperbole, I'm not going to bother.

Quorum is part of the WA game, and raiding is indistinguishable from any other means of replacing a Delegate according to NS moderation standards. Thus, quorum raiding is a legitimate way to influence the WA game and isn't damaging at all. It will likely prevent many poorly written proposals from passing.
