As some of you may have noticed, yesterday, I dropped a dirty bomb. For a long long time, I was in awe with I what I call the "Nuke Brotherhood" (i.e. those who have DB-related honour bars, like Cynic and co). Now, I'm part of it, at last!

EDIT: This was my first bomb ever, and I got both two honour bars for blowing it.

Here's a Q&A about the bomb.

When did it happened?
I planted it on September 9, 2013 at 1:15 AM, and it detonated at 3:00 AM on the same day.

Who was the target, and why?
The target was MMCP, because there were 75 members in it, all under the Myanmar flag. I did it to go down in glory as the first one mad enough to blow a DB during a World War, to give a bit of life in the competition, and because I wanted these honour bars. These was another faction in my crosshairs, but it would have resulted in nothing but massive trolling if I bombed it, so I quickly dismissed it.

Why this day, instead of waiting for the last day?
Yes, I could have waited till the last day. If we were last year, it would have been my strategy. But we're this year, and what if someone else beat me to it? Besides, considering the momentum Myanmar was gaining in the war, I had to choose between having 0.001% chances to turn the tide by doing it now... or wait till the last day to get maybe 0.00000000000001%? So I chose the timing I thought was best, considering the current situation.

Any message for those trying to downplay this achievement?
My money, my play, and deal with it. Sometimes, throwing rational behaviour to the toilet is the best thing you could do, I had A LOT of fun doing this. What else can I say? You can't please everybody all the time, and haters gonna hate (or are they just jealous?), no matter what.

Any grudges with MMCP?
Outside the WW, I have no beef with MMCP, I knew they would survive, as I didn't want to zero them. If they now have a beef with me, let it be, and let's hope it lasts till the end of November so I could get the Survivor award, and make a killing selling my stash of SEDs.

What's the story behind this bomb?
I first had the idea of blowing a bomb during a World War, right after the World War 2012. I just thought how awesome it would be. Fast forward to this year, I built it in my faction in April 2013. I've been in this faction for more than 1400 days, and gained enough respect through war to unlock the lab upgrade.

How did it went unnoticed?
I sent a newsletter to my 100+ company employees, offering them to get the Discovery award for free. I also got this merit along with them. I made sure they knew what they signed up for. Some of them brought their spouses or friends. No incident happened, except the random radiation poisoning. After this, most went back to their old factions.

Did the bomb builders get any cue about the moment it would be blown?
After the completion of the bomb, I sent a faction newsletter, telling them that if they see me starting to talk and act in a Spartan-esque way, it would be a cue that I would blow the bomb soon. So yeah, we can safely assume that it's no accident I chose the Greek flag for this World War, and made those Spartan sigs. I wanted to send them the cue. I wonder how many of them remembered it.

And what about the cesium? It's stupidly expensive!
As some of you may know, the answer lies in my property rental business, which brought the income, and I decided to stockpile cesium. I can safely say that running this business was the key to this success. By the way, thanks to those who did business with me, it wouldn't have been possible without you.

I hope you enjoyed the bomb as much as I did. My next achievement shall be the Survivor award.

Those who talk about it being a waste of money, or downplaying it are those who take the game to seriously.
I have said it everytime i have dropped one, that its only pixel money nothing more.
If you are lucky enough to get a DB why waste it in your display cabinet!

Congrats again for setting it off!

your Q&A makes it seem like you want a little too much attention.
DB's are useless items, but congrats if it was a goal of yours

Actually i have to correct you.

Quite easily answered with 'ED getting fedded'.

Really underwhelmed by the lack of 'shitstorm' created by this DB and everything else about it.
Grats on having dropped one though, still a big thing!

Exactly, ask me in a month when the last DB was I will have probably forgotten, this DB has had 0 impact on the community. Been nothing fantastic about it at all..
