  1. Re: [Amendment] Pater Familias or Patronus Award

    It wasn't a point of contention. In fact, it was the most widely endorsed reason. The only objections did not concern the relevance of the patronisation for the award, but the scale of your...
  2. Re: [Amendment] Pater Familias or Patronus Award

    I didn't say you were only proposed for your patronisation efforts, but it was a core argument in your favour. Accusations of being disingenuous aside, what I find a bit perplexing is not objecting...
  3. Re: [Amendment] Pater Familias or Patronus Award

    The Curia Service award has already been given to members for their patronisation efforts, so it looks like rewarding the same thing with two different medals. I'm fine with updating the description...
  4. Re: [Amendment] Patronus Award

    Opposed, because I don't think that the relationship between a patron and his client should be based on medal-hunting. In my opinion, the spamming of sloppy applications, where the patron is...

  9. Re: CA's difficulty in getting big factions right

    I would say that it has actually worsened in the latest games. In Rome I, the Seleucids were always screwed, but that is largely because they were the most unfairly implemented faction. For practical...
