How new players gonna do anything on the nation while they are the one using the nation area the most?
Your system is so broken.
They won't be able to make 100 citizenship points.
They won't be able to do anything on the nation.
They won't be be able to even benefit from the nation bonus too.. I think.
The guy behind the big chair is a weenie.
The system looks unfavorable but I assure you it is working as intended. Not a good first experience for new players but it shows the adverse affect that the sandbox element has on the player-base.
I like it, but I'm not dealing with that kind of thing at the moment so of course my opinion means nothing. There used to be more crazy people in office but I think they all got booted off the island. They can't all be Emperor Nero and they certainly can't all be Alexander the great. Eventually this individual will either be booted or quit being "that guy" and slip away into the annals of history as a memory and nothing more.
