Proposal: Breaking Down Monopolies before they begin

Can’t be enacted without a CoV . 2-9 (2-7-2) ~~ChronosPhaenon

Adminned at 20 Mar 2012 19:39:14 UTC

Add the following to the list of Institutions:

The Mountain Top: When a Player influences the The Mountain Top, if they Directed 0 Credits and 0 Marines at every other Institution for that Cycle, they gain X Marines where X is the number of Players who Directed a non-zero number of Credits or Marines to The Mountain Top for that Cycle.

If the only way to get troops is through influencing things, then if one person has troops and no one else does and they can influence every area that generates troops, they’ll get a stranglehold on troops until a new troop source is added (they can only send one troop to each area and influence because no one else has any troops). This provides a troop source that only people who don’t get troops from another source, preventing any player from getting *all* the troops in a given round. (unless of course people tie)

This has the potential to give one player a huge advantage over everyone else.
