Well,Epsi is closing.One may have a lot to say.What matters is that we all learned something.
Probably it is not good to start telling our whole stories.
A lot of emotions,a lot of fun.
One may agree or disagree ,depending on which side he was.
I haven't been part of Epsi since the start.Started only in January 2011,when server was already matured.
Had close a player who had a lot of friends in SE,but on his advice joined the academy of SWARM,then in April joined SWARM.
Never stopped loving that alliance,to this day.
It got killed from within,by the very so called leaders,who taught none and blamed all,except theirself.
There were exception,of course.
I have been a simmer in Epsi until August 2011,too much busy elsewhere to afford being aggressive.
Then started to play seriously here.
Until I quited in May,never lost a city,for 17 months,and there were some heated ops against me
I am proud to have been the last target of an organized Loo op in March,of course instigated by the SWARM killer,Mino The Backstabber.
A miserable failure for Loo,135k dbp for me in a single day,and with the new format,when supporters had their share of bp
I will not name any particular player as a friend,since they are so many
(with due respect to BoB,Spike and DDW)
I pay due respect to Loo leaders for being ruthless enough,while SE never was ruled with an iron hand.The softness of leadership was their failure.While Loo was just an Aushvitz,with terror against simmers,who constituted the vast part of that alliance(as in every alliance).
It was not Jack who killed SE,no,SE got killed by the way it grew,through merges,without selection of fighters.
As long as it's masters were alive,all was well.When Underworld3 and Mel quit,all the problems appeared.
SE followed the wrong strategy when ww era started.
Efforts were spread in many ww,and the leadership of the time failed to organize both defense of ww,and sabotage of Loo ww.Probably it would have been better to concentrate only in fightings.Loo leaders had no mercy,and forced their simmers to contribute much more then the voluntary contributions of SE simmers.
SE ww were in the hands of irresponsible players.
It was not one mans fault.
Wish I had started earlier!!!!!
The moment ww battle was lost,and we started to be fighters again,Loo started to lose ground
And they outnumbered us more then one to two overall!!!!
It was funny to see Achimedes not even trying to lift a single siege!!!!!
I miss GMDW
,too difficult to capture him offline
I regret not to have had the chance to cross swords with Engaboy and other boasters like prodigason,rowney etc.
It was funny to see prodigalson boast of not having lost cities from Mino The Backstabber
,the guy who sent unescorted full nukes
A really low level
A salute to all
