I begin to believe in only one civilizing influence – the discovery one of these days, of a destructive agent so terrible that War shall mean annihilation, and men’s fears shall force them to keep the peace.

For players that are not leading the game, they are more likely to have some nuclear bombs to warn other player “Don’t touch me”, which is indeed the same strategy that some countries in real life have chosen. The gaming world was once populated primarily by pre-teen and teenage boys, often huddled around televisions in each other's living rooms. During the Cold War, MAD was probably responsible for the lack of serious conflict between the US and USSR. Both the US and the USSR could bring about the end of humanity (including themselves), but neither wanted to.Both sides must act rationally (in short, all those with power must be able to act like adults and take the concept of MAD seriously.

It happens to be one of the few instances where we can all agree on something: we must not wipe ourselves out and destroy our planet.

TL;DR, it depends if you're in it for the strategic appear, or do you just want to see shit blow up and let some debris fly. Though Dadaism is often only considered as a react of WW1 happened in 1910s, it can still be applied to the time of the Cold Wars. Should a nuclear war break out, it is believed that the result would be the collapse of human civilization, as much or all of the planet becomes unsuitable for life, cities are erased and technology becomes unusable. And as intended, the first playtest ended with three nuclear winter played, which means the games ends with no winner.

At the same time, if there are some target that they can attack without worry about being counter-attacked, they would attack them to establish more advantage. Nukes in Supreme Commander also have nice destructible power, although thay take some setting up before you can let rip.This play was chosen partially because of the ability to stage only two characters at a time, who may largely remain socially distant.

In real world, the overuse of nuclear weapon may result in a same outcome that nobody actually benefit from that act. Originally from Wisconsin, Don Zolidis is a novelist and one of the most-produced playwrights in America.Whether the MAD exchanges between Tara and her brother Julien was over social media, escalating Instagram as a tool of mutually assured destruction; Joe’s brutal honesty about Sam’s embarrassing singing as an American Idol contestant dressed as a clown; the bad behavior of siblings Chad and Rachel causing their parents’ divorce; or even the secrets of fickle bride Virginia wiggling her way out of her upcoming nuptials by asking her sister, Evelyn, to lie, the players delivered convincing and comic portrayals that entertained. Less than a week after the bombing of Nagasaki, Japan surrendered and World War 2 ended a short time later. No matter what players choose, most of time they get into a situation that they have to attack, and nuclear winter happens. Once you have passed the moderation period (think of it as a test), you will be able to post normally, just like all the other retards.
