Welcome to the forum. Your first post. Or kinda second post because before you edited it said something about learning how to send a CS :x

Actually it didn't. I used the word moronic or idiotic and didn't like the tone so I corrected it.

"Everyone is spreading rumors about Grepo Addicts so I cannot overlook them since we share islands with them. Stable pre-made alliance, I don't think they are looking for friends and should they be totally rogue I give them credits for that.A swim definetely unless we cross paths ."

The unless we cross paths part makes me LoL every time I read it!! Good stuff mate!!!

U mad bro?
How can I be mad at someone so inept? I sent that wave because you hit someone in my alliance. It's result was to demonstrate to them I have their back. Not that I could take you. You on the other hand sent your attack this morning because you thought you had the advantage on me after yesterday.

He can attack whoever he likes for whatever reason he likes. It is a game, play it as one. I'd also recommend to not verbally attack someone who is 'worse' than you, when... from these reports, you can see the better player.

Im not the MOD but guys you are fighting like children over something completely irrelevant to the newspaper. Please argue via PM or in a thread dedicated to arguing so I dont have to read it. Id like to read more opinions on the paper but not more bickering. Thanks.

Yeah true.Makes me laugh as well.My bad I thought that we could fight gold whores but that's impossible isn't it? :S .Go on have fun in this world.And the fact that you had a difficult time conqueering our cities even with 4395649 gold spent per day should make you laugh as well.Anyways arguing with guys like you is not what I fancy doing.Some of your attacks btw were hillarius.Tell your guys to escort their trans with ls next time they want to send more than 400 ALU.But Sorry I forgot you have the gold.You can train them again in like 2 days :D.Just a suggestion : A Grepo world without gold support :)

I think blaming it on that is a very childish thing to do we did beat you far and square and despite what has been said as far as major gold use is concerned its limited to a small minority in the alliance. We were simply more organised than your team and if you had coordinated better than maybe the result would have been different. Grepolis wouldn't exist without gold so that will never happen.

Better coordinated?How could you be better coordinated when guys sent transports and tons of ALU without clearing the harbours first? Limited to who? The guys that took part in the OPs against us? Wow yeah true.Mate I don't blame anything.We lost and that's ok.I had like 1.9k points when the BP wore out and 6-7 of your guys had more than 3k.Is that limited?Getting attacked with 40 harpies from a guy that played for 6 days.Hmm yeah legit.Well Grepo gets lots of money from forums,advertisments and stuff like that.This is done for the extra profit.

Perhaps for the first time You are finding yourself in a world that is filled with the best players from all around grepolis, with players who have been around since grepo 1.0 and know every little detail about this game + know eachother for a long time and are organized to a point where there are no single players, just 1 alliance to live and fight for. All this amounts to a much greater value than any gold you use.

I suggest You start over - a bit further from the very core of the world that will be a crazy battlefield for the next couple of months at least, where only the best will come out alive - and work your way into this game. Being a "veteran" of one very recent world, which also has a different conquest-type does not account for too much of an experience among the people you are surrounded with in this world.

Just dont be a sore loser, take a lesson and learn from it and go on from there, be prepared for next time.

Well you are right apart from the fact that I was also playing on Iota some years ago and the fact that gold do not do any good?Really we all know that with lots of gold spent you can do anything possible.As I said I accept my defeat but I cannot let any "gold whore" offend me.At least have the pride to admit that yeah you used tons of gold to get what you have.There is no skill to get mythu nukes by using gold.I had to do a lot of patience to get my myth nukes in other worlds and a guy in 6 days get a desent farm myth nuke?Well yeah.

Impressive!

Sweet vocians 11k dbp! That is like 1,100 light ship, or 11,000 slinger lol... or better 550 light ship, and 6,000 offense army.

I am vocians I did sink one CS even tho I lost... Good job Grepo Addict I am pretty sure you spend over 300 dollar, or more just to get this much army in a short time lol.

Let me tell you guys how badly of a Gold whore they was. Me, and Velcr0n kill the guy that took my city he had 33 light ship so we sank all of them then he put me in revolt. 12 hour later he had 37 light ship with CS then I sank 37 Light ship, and his CS... then 2 hour later he got another CS then he got me.

Now tell me is that the biggest gold whore you've ever seen lol?

No amount of gold in the world can get you enough resources to build that much in that little time. All You can do with gold is shorten the build time, it will not get you any extra resources, other than the 50% boost from the advisor (which most anyone who has spinned the wheel will have activated free for a week by now). If he managed to build that much in that little time it has to be the combination of 5-min looting with the help of forced loyalty spell for pretty much the entire day + farming other players + getting some extra resources from his allies which is some serious dedication combined with enough gold to keep your queues going steadily.

No-one is saying they arent using gold, pretty much every player above 3.5k points has been using quite a bit of gold to shorten their build times.

Gold only has a real effect in the very early days to get that needed boost, in 2 months gold will pretty much be useless, other than to keep a few needed advisors going for your own comfort. If you arent prepared to waste a bit of gold early on, then you should take the appropriate measures and wait a half a day or a day before joining a world, thus remaining outside the killingfields and you calmly work your way up and catch up with everyone else once the gold-spree has ended.

This is so unpleasant and un needed, ive always thought its better to be gratious in victory and defeat.

gold definatly helps no doubt but so do combinations of buffs you can receive for free, ultimately though you can only build what you have res for if you max your farms then you can do no more! it takes best part of a full day of five min clicking to max your farms most of my team do that every day that's called hard work and effort !

we have baicaly taken out every city your alliance had built and it was a fun battle and you fought well. id prefer to think of you guys as worthy opponants that performed admirably but just were unlucky this time. please don't spoil that

Well I told to the guy that was trying to troll Opy that it was nice to fight against you and your team.I don't want to spoil anything and wouldn't even bother commending if not for your guy criticizing my comments.I know what it takes but we also put effort in to this.We were trading like crazy resources and demanding every 5 mins (Opy hated that part) we just didn't have the advantage of gold and that's where I think you counted on.It was fun indeed and that's why we joined this world in the first place.I respect my oponents when they do so as well.

You forgot that player can feed player to get resource to use gold to instantly build anything they want. The whole point is what I've experience is mind boggling only the elite of the elite are able to play like this. Maby loser that have no life, and alot of money with the time, and the will to spend gold as if they are free, and have the ability to sit down all day clicking 5 min, coordinate feeding to there member to the one that need them the most.

From what this sound like it sound like y'all don't believe what I've witness, and y'all are defending the gold whore so it sound like your a gold whore also, but lets face it I do spend gold, and I am not trying to rub this into anybody face I just want to say it was a pleasure to be fighting somebody that doesn't mind spending gold in a scale that most people can't afford, and it was an epic experience.

To the voicians. You put up more of a fight than I thought you would honestly and I commend you for that. I was suprised that you were organized enough and had enough awareness to realize that you had to stick to one defense and that was obviously biremes. I do feel like if you guys had started at a different time or in a different location you would have stood a chance at surviving and possibly thriving. You just unfortunately for you joined this world in the same direction and at the same time as a group of more experienced players with deeper wallets. Gold is a part of this game and as long as it is people will use it and of you don't have a few players who are willing to use a decent amount of it then starting in the core of a brand new world is a bad idea. The fact that you even destroyed one cs is a testimate to your strategy and a number of your players properly dodged and used militia. You were simply out matched in the early game style that has come to be the new meta. If I were you I'd take your newly found battle points and restart on the rim where you will find less gold whores and have a bp advantage over most all alliances out there. Best of luck to you in the future. Sorry for your swift loss.
