There should be an update
BD has been around since Febuary.Also the oldest alliance still existing.
I don't think there are any still around from the first 3 months of the game starting let alone the first week. The other old names such as TW-S have disbanded and reformed.
I am impressed with the stability of The Black Death Imperium, and I have seen it grow from a rank 12 to 2.
They also have impressive stats.
So far, you are correct.I assume you mean Orthia members joining TBDI after Orthia disbanded. You gave me the same spiel when we recruited ex-orthia members.
I guess I don't understand this whole refugee thing. To me, a refugee is a person who flees to a foreign power to escape danger. At least that is it's normal definition.
This is a prejudice and a twist of words. Maybe if you would have read my message carefully in stead of complaining that I didn't introduce myself properly according to your standards, you would have seen that I supplied you stats stating that these 2 specific members were refugees. All the other ex-Orthians you took in were not attacked by us before and therefore none of our business.So Orthia disbanded, so per you, every single member there is a refugee and is required to stay alliance-less until you consume them all easily since they have no alliance to assist them.
Because TW-S used to have/has high recruitment standards you probably never had to deal with this, but again, based on common knowledge, no one in their right mind would say this, because they would be kicked immediately.None of them came to us saying, please let me in and hide me from attacks.
This is only true if you were attacked in the game by these leaders.I am technically a refugee as I left an alliance where i hated the leaders, and joined tw-s.
Am I to never play Alpha again except in alliance I mistakenly chose to start off with just because of some stupid generic refugee statement that some people made up? I am glad old tw-s decided against that, or else I would be stuck alliance-less and probably bored and gone, and tw-s may have never made it through leader changes over the years.
Well, that's up to you. I merely wrote you and Cyreme about you guys taking in refugees. Never did I have any problems with people's responses before because it's just something one doesn't do. Apparently you think differently about that, being it sincerely to change the world or just plain arrogance.And if someone wants to put alliance at stake to save a refugee because they think they are worth it. Good for them. This game needs wars at all times. I donate money in RL to save refugees and enjoy sticking my neck out for people in game if they are worth the trouble.
So because Orthia disbanded and they were forced to find another alliance, because they wanted to join tw-s, they are refugees? Where are they supposed to go if not stay alliance-less since they are refugees everywhere according to you and whoever remade the definition of refugees. If they were in Orthia and only left to join tw-s to hide from attacks, yes, I see that as a refugee. Orthia disbanded, we recruited those we thought had some potential and would see how things go on a trial basis. If one of you ALLIES was attacking one of these new recruits, then OK, we have a valid point to discuss. But you were never our ally, so you can still attack the members all you want. They aren't hiding from attacks. They are right there. We aren't sitting here sending them 5k biremes to all their towns. We aren't even in same ocean as a few of them, hence why we have probably never attacked each other in first place. We are in different areas. We took some Orthia members not far out as we do have expansion plans some day and if we could recruit enough in one ocean to hold their own, then we would be fine. One player could withstand all attacks anyway at this point, rimming someone is really hard... it is usually just getting those pushovers to quit instead of realize the amazing amount of BP they can get by turtling up and expanding faster than by attacking BP. I am always hoping for some attacks, D is 3 times easier imo.When I started this game about a year ago, I learned that alliances don't take in refugees and that refugees in this game refers to players under heavy attack and now seeking shelter elsewhere.
This is like talking to a wall. You're either ignorant or like scho1ar, who likes to twist words for his own benefit.So because Orthia disbanded and they were forced to find another alliance, because they wanted to join tw-s, they are refugees?
