Indeed you did. But you never followed any of it up. Zaruns croonies tried their hardest.
It's difficult to prioritise when often there is only one wonder open because we've not been diligent at cutting acceleration times. We've also had to deal with the issue of a spy relaying which wonder we're focusing on. It's been easy for Knights to stay ahead of us as a result. With their superior sending power it really has been as simple as that. And once again I do commend you for the dedication your team has shown to build the wonders. Our players just don't have the same appetite for them and hence we have suffered.The one thing that truly surprised me w.r.t. to WW was the lack of an effort for the hata coalition to build WW (figured hata build 3, poon 2, ndo 1-2). Additionally whoever was planning the build order of hata's WW was a bit muddled. I 100% agree ww does suck but the one thing I find fun is the planning of the builds/accels to attempt to beat your opponent. To that end I helped a bit on Ni's WW. So for those that say they hate WW, give WW planning a chance until grepo fixes WW. I really thought we would be lucky to get 3 built, as our lead was not that great in reality vs hata.
Clocks has not sent res to us to my knowledge and Barbs only started at about level 6 if memory serves. I find it pretty telling some of the venom here, especially considering so many on both sides were supposed to be friends before this server. Stockhold syndrome I guess. Either way, I hope a few will stick around, I have a few scores to settle
cheers either way to whatever happens, it is just a game.
Again you speak of stuff you don't know sir. NI has no help from any other alliances except 7-8 people that have chosen to help. NI has been a tight group except for a couple of disgruntle people and even though not 100% of the membership participate in the building of the wonders, the ones that do are committed to the crown (see what I did there).Ni are only winning because they have multiple alliances sending for them.
Sparkie was found to be helping BD defend against Knights. He betrayed Clocks' allies, but never betrayed Clocks, and as always, glory made another decision to help Knights in the expense of Clocks and wanted to rim sparkie. I was not involved in this, could have stayed in Clocks and be their only visible leader at that time(we all know Andromach can't lead, and glory was never the best communicator, and you riot was in VM), and I was the only one trying to appease everyone when everyone wants to know what Clocks aim was. You were still around when that happen. Moravak, the undisputed best player and leader of Clocks, already went inactive and he told me it's because Clocks is acting like Knight's academy and he don't like it. He even tried to move to Que's old alliance, took a few cities there and colonised there.You went to TubOrg. for a few weeks and then landed in Black Dawn. I briefly came out of VM to take care of a few issues and noticed that you went to Black Dawn. I sent a quick note to BigLouisB that you aren't the most trustworthy individual and watch you closely. Perhaps that's a reason why you didn't find many willing to follow you. Or perhaps it's because you bounced between alliances so much - I don't follow anyone who shows so little loyalty.
This once again shows you have no idea what was going on. After Ephesians left, there was two advocate in Senate for winning WW, Andromach and glory. I was the loudest in opposing WW. I pushed HARD for Clocks to break the pact with Black Dawn or Knights to have more fight. Never did i once support WW. After it was clear that glory wants Clocks to build WW, i said i will help Clocks to get into the position to have a better shot, and i said the only way is to break the pact with Knights, as long as they are around, Clocks have no chance. I was still pushing for no WW and just war. I actually received a PM from Praehelios asking me to join Knights. If i really wanted the crown, i would have joined Knights. Actually if i really wanted the crown, i could have gotten it in other worlds.While in Clocks, Conqueror II pushed HARD for us to do WWs, in spite of the leadership stating that we weren't interested in doing WWs. We finally conceded and started to set up plans for WWs. So what's Conqueror II do? Depart Clocks while convincing more than a few Clocks to leave our alliance because of WWs.
Scenic I take offence at your comment, I have double your BP. If you think sending 100 cats is good playing, you are sadly mistaken. Next time try 200, I will sink those toostop complaining, jesus, the NI's will win this world, they have the most numbers and played their wonders the best...HATA we had a solution to win and you guys turned it down, top 5 alliances played well, New Delos is just a giant merge but NI, Hata, Harpoon, Barbs and LOL is what i consider the top 5, all have played together for most of server, this game is about being fun and meeting new friends and attacking people, you guys complain to damn much, your ego serves no pride in winning a CPU game because after you win then you start a new one, i have chatted with a bunch of people in other alliances and everyone is pretty much nice, Viv is way to cocky to not take enemy cities, and Phil cannot spell...other than that everyone is pretty cool...being this my first world i really don't think that the game should end in the way it has, WW is terribly boring and proves nothing, but I am not the game designer, I enjoyed playing and battling most of you, I will prob see you again, unlike most other people i will still play as Scenickarma, no need to change it!!!!

As far as help to build is concerned, we really have had nothing from MG or NDO until about level 8. Far too late to make any difference, and let's not forget that Sinners and Knights together are nearly 15 million pnts bigger than Hata, which is about the same size as MG. If you factor in that Clocks and Barbarians have been sending for them as well then it's hardly surprising we are where we are. Actually I would have expected Knights to be much further ahead.
As for sticking around - once Knights have four then there really is nothing else to see here....
Never thought I'd ever say this, but you are right Philso you say u massivly out number an allainces who offered u no benifits wanting to do there own thing in mg this allaince city location ment that u could eat then within days and use there city your selfs but no attempty was ever made
one of you biggest mastkes you ever made.
Really now?moreover if blame is to be layed at anyones feet for the state of the server it should be layed at zaruns feet if he didnt double cross AR then the server would look alot different but he did
you are correct sir in your assesment of how you see it i know not what went on in AR but i do know that if AR had stayed together the world would have been different i have chased off a few players myself albeit ones who asked for it and couldnt take it when i gave it to them funny how some like to pretend to speak the truth but when its throwned back in thier face its not ok at all how ever i do know that you were insturmental in breaking AR and that made the world what it is so my statement is still correct so for hata now to blame NI for the state of the world is really just stupid and asinine to say the leastReally now?
Loyalty is something that is very important to me and it works in different ways - not only loyalty to leaders but also to players.
Viv had chased off more than half a dozen decent people (lurksalot, donster, joshpheus, simon, bernadus) who went to LoL and Agamemnon42+others (who went to MG) after getting fed up with her prima donna attitude. And others were talking to me about leaving Acid Reign because of her.
So I had two choices: maintain my loyalty to a leader who was throwing tantrums weekly and talking down to players, refusing to listen to advice about her attitude, and watch as more players left.
Or I could maintain my loyalty to the players and rescue them from a tyrant. Obviously I chose the latter.
I've learned my lesson and will be very careful who I choose to play under in the future. Negative actions of a leader can be very damaging to an alliance.
