Wut. Your picks other than Mao and Zhukov make even less sense to me now. I'm curious what you are going to make of it in your write up, but it must be something out of the box.

Default Re: Nation-State Draft 3

I don't really care for my last pick to be honest. I was being sincere when I said I was building my nation sort of similar to what ZeN said he would do with his. My plan is to draft some naval admirals and for Communist Australia to spread out pillaging and the small and some what larger islands/landmasses near it. I may even make my small council leaders of different territories that would be conquered. Zuhkov is only there to have an army general and he threw a lot of his troops to the buzzsaw, I like that. My Admirals can carry my army onto the shores after naval barrages and blockades. And really that's all the thought I have put into this.

You have a huge variety going on your team. I'm afraid Buddha might not fit too well into your system, but you could prove me wrong. Jefferson and Engels make a very contradictory pair, but I see a way that you could make it work. Interesting team, I look forward to seeing how you pull it together.

LamarOdom
Outside of Alexander the Great and Shakespeare, your team is very American. Not impressed with the Lincoln pick (thought you reached a bit), but I liked where you nabbed Edison. Shakespeare can keep the people happy I suppose, but I think you could have done better.

zeN
You really want to conquer some bitches. Genghis Khan, Napoleon, Hannibal, those are some of the most fierce conquerors in history. You provide some very nice balance with Da Vinci and Aristotle. And Ricardo will give you some Economical savvy to boot. Very intriguing what you have done here, but I like it.

CeltsGarlic
Really like the Alexander Suvorov pick, especially since you have Russia. I understand why you picked Pope John Paul II, but I don't like his one-dimensionalness. I love reading about Seneca and I think he was a great pick for you. You have a very well balanced team with a very Roman empire flair. Good stuff.

JailBlazers7
Keynes is going to get you the money and Mayer Rothschild is going to bank and invest it. Although not an exciting pick, I like Feynman where you got him. Very smart dude with an extensive knowledge of physics and mathematics. I don't like your Deng Xiaoping pick. I am having a hard time seeing communism working well with your lineup, but it's up to you to prove me wrong. Interesting snag with the supreme court judge too.

Anti Hero
If you haven't picked a type of governance, I'd recommend democracy . You are one of the few who has gone gung-ho on one general theme. For you I like it. With all of the pieces, it will be easy to argue that you can make communism work.

Timmy D
Individually, nobody on your team impresses me too much (outside of Einstein and Saudi Arabia), but I really like your team. A lot of really good picks in Planck, Wilkes, and Patton. If I were you, I would keep my eyes out for people who can fit well with your country, because that seems like a part you are lacking.

Knicksballer
Still don't like your Brazil pick. Not a bad county, just took it too early. Outside of that you haven't done too bad. Henry Ford was a steal in the 7th and I like Garibaldi as a statesman. I don't particularly like the George Orwell pick, and actually am curious why you chose him (not that it is outlandishly bad, but there are several guys like him, so what made you do it).

blablabla
I don't know much about Prince Klemens von Metternich, but fck you for picking somebody with a name that long (I kid, I kid). Quick googling tells me his an Austrian so you will have to tell me more about him. Julius Caesar may be the steal of the draft where you got him. Kudos.

Iamgine
I like what you did with your team. A semi slow start has been followed up by solid picks across the board. Galileo was a great pick where you got him. I also like the combo of Friedman and Carnegie.

Here are my favorites so far. The gaps are very small still, so take that with a grain of salt.

It's also shocking how late Caesar goes in this draft. One of the greatest generals and one of the greatest statesmen, a combination which puts him in very exclusive company.
Whoah...when this sh*t get so serious?
