@BigMorf as you already know, we did the discord interview. Transcripts below


Jack Kyu LanternToday at 10:50 AM

awesome, your nation checks out

[10:50 AM]

I'll start with the interview :3

[10:50 AM]

We require that you use the leader name in game as your name on the forum and on slack. Do you agree to do that?

Grumbles McPheeToday at 10:51 AM


Jack Kyu LanternToday at 10:51 AM


[10:51 AM]

We require the usage of Slack (a free chatting application available for both desktop and mobile) for all members. Will you be okay with this?

Grumbles McPheeToday at 10:51 AM

i kind of abhor slack, but, i believe i have it downloaded anyways, so

[10:51 AM]


[10:52 AM]

does most information sharing/discussion take place in discord/in game, or is slack the priamry

[10:52 AM]


[10:52 AM]

ffs i'm off today. more coffee.

Jack Kyu LanternToday at 10:52 AM

most info is on slack but if it's important enough you'll get a message in game

Grumbles McPheeToday at 10:52 AM


Jack Kyu LanternToday at 10:52 AM

For military preparedness, TKR requires all of our members to maintain a warchest of resources required for war. Are you ok with this?

BigSpoopyToday at 10:53 AM

slack also has lots of very helpful things that will help you be a better player. trust me i prefer discord, but our slack is customized in a way that discord isn’t for PnW it’s very nice

Grumbles McPheeToday at 10:53 AM

sure. i get the concept in general, but, bare in mind i don't entirely know what that means. though if it's as straighforward as it appears than there it is

[10:53 AM]

fair enough

[10:53 AM]

enough people use slack that i should at least be comfortable with it i suppose lol

BigSpoopyToday at 10:54 AM

most of our community is more slack active than discord active lol. and don’t worry, you’ll learn more about some of these concepts later! i’ll let kyu get back to his interview he’s better at these then i!

Jack Kyu LanternToday at 10:55 AM

haha, I do enjoy a good interview. and if you prefer discord then we do have discord active people as well (just not as many as on slack). I'm pretty discord active myself

[10:55 AM]

now back to the interview :)

Grumbles McPheeToday at 10:56 AM

haha no worries. I just know I had an Eve corp that mostly used Slack, and perhaps that were just very inactive, but I remember not using it much. probably a big chunk of them just not being active.

Jack Kyu LanternToday at 10:56 AM

our slack is very active

[10:56 AM]

If TKR asks you to go to war where your nation may take heavy damages, would you do it?

Grumbles McPheeToday at 10:57 AM

I mean grumbles may be involved.

[10:57 AM]

but most likely yes, why not

Jack Kyu LanternToday at 10:57 AM

great :D

[10:58 AM]

Have you played any other nation sims before?

BigSpoopyToday at 10:58 AM

don’t worry we’d rebuild you afterwards anyways ;). the question is just there to see it people would follow an order lol

Grumbles McPheeToday at 10:58 AM

lol I honestly think the amount of information you'll give me from the manyh, many questions I have will make it a fair deal eithe rway

[10:58 AM]


[10:58 AM]

and I'd say yes, a variety

Jack Kyu LanternToday at 10:58 AM

which ones?

Grumbles McPheeToday at 10:58 AM

currently in to conflict of nations again as well, because apparently i'm a sadist

[10:58 AM]

*masochist. well. both I suppose.

Jack Kyu LanternToday at 10:58 AM


[10:59 AM]

What made you pick TKR over other alliances?

Grumbles McPheeToday at 11:01 AM

well. I actually did look at the leaderboard, looked at some of the descriptions. tbh i was a bit worried about the requirements. I'm quite a gamer, but, I also have a lot of RL commitments, some of which can pop off with little to no warning. However, you guys looked promising, had a good ranking, and responding quickly and like humans when I replied to the initial email. Also, the initial email wasn't bad either. I got the flood of emails, as do all, and yours wasn't bad. Fairly straightforward

BigSpoopyToday at 11:01 AM

can confirm am not a robot

Jack Kyu LanternToday at 11:01 AM

awesome. glad we caught your eye :D

[11:01 AM]

how active do you intend to be?

Grumbles McPheeToday at 11:02 AM


[11:02 AM]

I'll take your word for it, for now ;) I usually at least poke my head in for a bit. I mean I have it on mobile, so, rare is the time I can't at least log in and do some quick fixes

[11:02 AM]

I don't know how in depth log ins actually get once you get things going

Jack Kyu LanternToday at 11:03 AM

it doesn't take too much time out of your day tbh

[11:03 AM]

what time zone are you in?

Grumbles McPheeToday at 11:04 AM


BigSpoopyToday at 11:05 AM

as a smaller nation you’ll be fighting lots of raid wars so you’ll probably wanna check in like two or three times a day maybe just to do attacks and what not but it’s not too complicated! we also have a pretty fun community so you can check in to see if people are playing like among us or jackbox or scribble.io were even getting ready to set up a civ4 game and they just finished a weekly eu3 game

Grumbles McPheeToday at 11:05 AM


[11:05 AM]

fair enough

Jack Kyu LanternToday at 11:06 AM

What kind of a nation you want to become, and what kind of help you expect from TKR in this.

Grumbles McPheeToday at 11:08 AM

Successful lol the game is I think more in depth than it appears at first glance. So. You folks seem to know you are doing; I'm definitely looking forward to hearing about strategies, both for beginners as well as in general. I'm a bit at a loss at how to proceed at the moment, as well as what kind of mid range goal I should have, so, information sharing will be ideal

Jack Kyu LanternToday at 11:08 AM

we'll have plenty of guides and people you can ask (like me) for help

[11:09 AM]

What makes a good alliance and what makes a good member?

Grumbles McPheeToday at 11:10 AM

coordination and information, imo. I'm aware of those things and a fan of them.

Jack Kyu LanternToday at 11:11 AM

Awesome :D

[11:11 AM]

Last question

[11:11 AM]

How do you see yourself contributing to make TKR a successful alliance?

Grumbles McPheeToday at 11:12 AM

teamwork makes the dreamwork. I mean everyone brings their own skillset to the table, which is good, a diversity of ideas and whatnot. But especially initially, just being present and contributing as asked
