Report article RSS Feed Ostslavia: Dusk

"This winter was especially cold in the Eastern European nation of Ostslavia. Ostslavia is the main European producer of nuclear energy, enriched Uranium and biotechnological fuel, crucial to Europe's economy. Ostslavia still maintains a handful of tactical nuclear shells and produces engines for Russian military aircraft. Despite this, Ostslavia's troubled economy and ethnic tensions make the nation extremely unstable."

Federal Republic of Ostslavia, near future.
 "This winter was especially cold in the Eastern European nation of Ostslavia.Ostslavia is the main European producer of nuclear energy, enriched Uranium and biotechnological fuel, crucial to Europe's economy. Ostslavia still maintains a handful of tactical nuclear shells and produces engines for Russian military aircraft. Despite this, Ostslavia's troubled economy and ethnic tensions make the nation extremely unstable.

Fearing that because of its economic problems Ostslavia may fall into Russia's sphere of influence, the European Union made a covert preventive strike. In the cold December's night during mysterious circumstances, the main opposition leader of the country was brutally killed by unknown armed men. The opposition instantly blamed the Ostslavic government for the incident, rallying a whole-national strike, demanding instant change of government and Regent.

What came next will hardly ever be known for sure... According to the democratic and EU media, the government became extremely nervous and reacted inadequately - they spilled chemicals from helicopters to stop the protesting mob. However it all went wrong and the frenzied mob rushed and sacked the Summer Palace, tearing apart anybody who were unlucky enough to be inside at the moment. Little is known what happened to the Regent - if here is ever alive or have been evacuated to Belarus.

However, I must tell you that this is all roughly 90% fraud. I was there in that day when the crowd rushed to the Palace. I was responsible for the defense of the capital region, call me simply Colonel. I could have prevent it. But I didn't. Why? The opposition has firmly implied to me that fulfilling my military duties will lead to me receiving my son's ear in a box. I was too weak... Now, after the brutal coup d’état I'm deep inside one of Ostslavia's secret prison complexes. I do not know if I ever get out of here, but if my message accidentally happens to see the light – I want you to know the truth about the current Ostslavic president Kossak He’s a perfectly weak-willed person who fully relies on EU bolstering his ass in return for his promise to break ties with Russia and close the Ingmarazund nuclear station – the biggest in the world currently. Needless to say that’s not the only concession he’s going to make in order to pay off his illegal ascendance to power.

Now I will tell something that even his European patrons don’t know. The mysterious “spilled chemicals” were actually spilled by Kossak’s loyal officers. It’s nothing other than the narrowly known “Libyan powder” – a powerful psychotropic reagent. The only problem is that it didn’t actually worked first well in Ostslavia’s cold climate. So they rallied thousands of wild dwellers of Transylvanian mountains and inject “Libyan powder” intravenously inside special medvans, before bringing them to the Capital. Looks like it worked to turn them into really aggressive protestors, but too much well… now New Arkaim’s center is filled with frenzied half-zombies that lost their personality, but pretty full of desire to eat, regardless what or who is it. Whoever is that guy Kossak, he will end very pitifully.”
- ex-Colonel Taani Zoltan, prison diaries.

 Wanna know what happens next? Well... That fully depends on you. Yes, on you personally. If really like what this game is about, if you desire to play it already in 2014 or just long for pizza - make your vote  for us. Every vote might be crucial. Not kidding.

"troubled economy and ethnic tensions." Reminds me of Yugoslavia's situation before it was 'balkanized.'

The Balkans pretty much do it on a centennial basis. And when it gets loud, the world's in for a loud century. Or at least half of it.

Europe playing Evil and killing off a pro-Europe oposition leader in order to take-over the country and associated with a power-mongering psycho. Perfect storyline and with a covert bad guy playing hero.

My comrades, we shal free our European brethren of the slaving shackles imposed to them by their leaders and media, as soon as the game is out. ;)

Before the second picture I had my doubts. If anyone wants to see higher resolution version and without any effect applied for themselves, I'll even save you time you'd have to spend googling:

Now, I do realise this is just a game, with fictional events, yadda, yadda. But this particular interpretation of actually very real events, which are the basis for the in-game events, is disgusting and in one instant changed my opinion of the game. Now I do not want to play it, ever.

Am I really missing something other than your flag or are you seriously that offended by fiction ripping a few fresh pages from reality's book?
Because I sure do hope you were just as offended when Generals went and capitalised on the War on Terror. Or over every single recent game capitalising on the fact that the Middle east is lousy with folks with a knack for exploding civilians.

It is not freshness that is offensive, it is the distortion of what is actually happening. If these fictional events did not "coincide" with what the perpetrators and their supporters are spewing constantly, while peaceful protesters are brutally beaten, I wouldn't react in any way.

First of all, it is an incorrect comparison. It is not one country invading another, it is citizens protesting against numerous violations of both Ukrainian laws and basic human rights. There is no war and hopefully it will stay that way.
Secondly, I can not be just as offended at incorrect portrayal of events in Middle East, whether recent or not, because I don't live there, can't see what is happening with my own eyes. I have no certainty of which events are portrayed incorrectly and to what degree.
And I sure as hell am more concerned about what is happening in my country.

Why? Getting so riled up over a fictional story? Just because it isn't "Murica **** yeah° like most RTS?

No. Apparently I'm failing to communicate what I want to, so this will be my last reply here.
I'll let you decide whether it is worth to get so riled up over peaceful protesters being portrayed as monsters who "implied" a brave and mysterious "colonel" will get his son's ear in a box and other such ****:

I bet your current sympathy for the protests will be somewhere far-far away forgotten after opposition leaders rise to power

and yeah, this is personally YOURS intepretation of an actually fictional story. I can't be responsible for one's own misinterpretations and "visions", some people find "offensive notions" even in Warcraft, lol

I see this as a comment to the recent real world events in Ukraine, but in other case if it has any chance of becoming a part of a game scenario, you should know that... zombies. Well, they are good in certain things, like... killing for example. Killing all the ******* atmosphere of political thriller.
