    Default Cease fires - When and how many?

    Hello everyone,

    I want to know which cease fires the majority of our community wishes to have on our domain. I'm creating a poll and you can select multiple options. Please choose the ones you'd like to see in the game.

    The exact times of a cease fire is a different discussion, first I'd like to know the general picture. If you think a certain holiday or other special day is missing please post it below.

    Thanks for your input!

    If you are going to start with independence day and thanksgiving then you have to also have the Canadian versions of those too. There are almost as many of those playing these servers as there are yanks.

    I agree completely with the above.

    The problem is that once you start adding all these holidays, we'll have almost more ceasefire than game time.

    Also don't forget memorial day, spring break, labour day, etc, etc.

    Personally, I would not go for Independence Day since people tend to be around. Unlike Christmas and Easter and Thanksgiving. But historically, I think it has been Christmas and Easter for truces.

    Don't think we've ever had Easter... at least since I've been playing. Has always been Christmas and New Year.

    But also, for a countries (both the US and Canada to be fair) that see themselves as melting pots, why don't we get Ramadan and Hanukkah off too? Oh and Chinese New Year. And Depavali. And. And. And.

    People tend to have a relatively long time off during Christmas and New Year visiting family and friends (even those that aren't Christian) and that is why it has been limited to those.

    We can pick and choose a few Holidays, and leave the rest. It is unpractical to have a ceasefire for all of them.

    Agreed. Christmas and New Year have always worked before. Not sure why it would be different now.

    For some reason, I seem to remember one for Easter. But maybe I need more tea.

    That is a very important holiday, you heathen.

    Do you really want me to discuss this one? How you went off on holiday and dropped everything in your dual's lap .....

    We used to only have a Christmas truce until 2010, frankly I would be fine with going back to that. But if we were going to have an additional truce I would vote for Thanksgiving because that seems to be the other major "travel home" holiday.

    The other suggestion I might make is periods of no-starvation in response to major natural disasters. I've seen plenty of alliances declare truces in those times, but turning off starvation would certainly help.

    There was one for Easter one year but I don't think it went over well.

    To keep Kurtz happy, let's have a single cease fire for Stalins birthday so he can quit crying about it already.

    I like the idea of Independence Day and Christmas because they are significantly far apart on the calendar.
