No one has stood up to us :S The only one even attacking back is some member in DP (Shadow, who we didn't even attack *sob sob*), and he's just another guy they recruited to do the fighting for them. Pathetic server...
I do hate it when alliances start bullying.
Same with players.
They ruin everything :/
But you do need a military, and this is why I encourage my allies to have focus on military and not building. Thus why my rank goes down every day: resources go to military... omg... just realized that's what communists do and I'm not one =(
But I don't want to fall: safety first, luxury last.
<--- Premium player hate me for I play a work which in turn gives me money to do what I want with it.
I like this server quite a bit.... The best way to enjoy this server is to join an alliance that's in a war with another alliance around the same size or a tad bigger. It really fuels the slow days because all it takes is a few LS at another city and you got a Jerry Springer show. If you are being bullied by an alliance jump in their enemies or stack up your defense and expand the slower but more guaranteed way. The server isn't so much as dying but people are playing wrong and alliance jumping which in turn creates their demise. The tutorials and guides only teach you so much and to the new players its a bummer finding out too late.
Just a side note I bully everyone in my ocean..... that is kind of the point of the game.... Having full control of your ocean is a need when Wonders start. I see too many people just sitting and chilling at 2-8k cities and get mad when I take it because I'm more active and it's a possible threat if per say another alliance were to take it later on. Grepolis is almost like a job if you don't show much motivation 1 you won't be intimidating and 2 your an easier target for someone that is actively motivated.
well i been playing another game similar to this the last 4 years and finally retired for good at beg of august.
it is all the same....
you get your people who complain after every update about the lure to premium
you get the people bitching about the server dying/why open another one
you get people who think this is a modern day school fair and everyone should get a "participant" ribbon instead of nothing for 44th out of 50 people...
you get the core actives having fun, participating in chat, and as our moderator said - that is really what makes the game.
And personally, I enjoy the last group of people, conquering cities and ending the game for certain people in my area....if they really want to try again - join back into a fringe ocean, build yourself up and get into a good alliance....and try to come get some revenge on me!
or...move onto the next server and play groundhog day!
