Can't do a thing about it? If there's one thing I've learnt from all those lost hours and rounds, is that no matter how big you are, there's always something that can be done. Haven't played in many rounds, and quite inactive. Dunno who I KT'd, not too bothered - but more of the killing and wars please...

It's not hard to find my tiny planet either. Though I fully support more killing, more bashing and more nukes - something to keep competition alive for those few still left playing.

Round 17 was definitely a fun round. Our group was also in "Cake" (we were The Muses system). Good times....

My LEAST favorite round was Round 3, with the GateKaaos disaster. What a ridiculous, horrible mess that was.


You mean GateKeepers right? They were the ones that messed up all over the place. I was AL of GateKaaos as the sister alliance to Gail, and we stood up and survived. We were the smaller "off-casts" but we sure did have fun back then.

Best times of recent rounds has to be R38 as a member of the 'phobias - Triskaidekaphobia smile.gif, and I was the only one left as the rest of my mates got killed off, and R35 as fatties. Round 13 was fun when I played with Glenni and Bing way back then, made a comeback with GateKaaos and was the first round my alliance won. There's a round where I also won, but no idea which one now. Can't really remember much besides that, and haven't played since. Oh and Posse/PosseTwo was fun in R2. A blur, but plenty fun as there were so many players, systems and alliances.

I haven't played in ages - but boy EVERYONE loves to complain and moan.

Whenever I played a round - if we had a problem with something or someone, we wouldn't waste time in the OLW forums talking about it. We'd DO something about it. Just kill Sig for goodness sake, don't wait for something 'official' or likewise to happen. Get it together, take him down and play a WAR game. Including you Richie mate, you make a thread about this but ironically there seems to be much talk but no action... Don't post about it, until the deed is done. Then everyone can come in and boast how much they 0wned so and so... huh.gif

I'm so bored... And haven't visited in ages. So I picked a random topic... God, these threads are so old...

Great prediction nosfer rolleyes.gif

Result:
Team Pld W D L GF GA GD Pts
1 Sevilla 6 5 0 1 14 7 +7 15
2 Arsenal 6 4 1 1 14 4 +10 13
3 Slavia Prague 6 1 2 3 5 16 -11 5
4 Steaua 6 0 1 5 4 10 -6 1


Meh... Predictions for the '09 winners?

I finally think Chelski have a shot this year with the new gaffer in charge. And of course, Liverpool with a renewed team spirit and finally a world-class striker in Torres. But I'd rather Liverpool forget about the CL and win the Premiership this year.

You must have logged in a little more than that Kane, cause I seldom did find you with loads of cash:D


lol - nah I think it's just logging in at the right time due to our time difference. I lost a hell of a lot of money, but had decent ops for once.

Money lost 532,244,549

Truthfully, I was hardly on. And I didn't even log in for 2 days straight when chaos started. But a certain inept alliance couldn't even KT me, and still can't. Well, the alliance was one named after an inbred moron, the rest of them in the alliance were ok tongue.gif lol

Well, some of you already knew this was going to be my last round. Its been great. Lots of friends and lots of fun. Hopefully Med school will allow me to give GA a shot in 2 years when all the book work is done.

cheers people! Its been a great 7 years!


Take care buddy. Wow, 7 years since our SK days! That's a loooong time lol.

Will have to take a trip over to you, those beaches and those puerto rican girls you showed me wink.gif LOL


Will keep in touch.

Nice one DL.

I managed a 6th place in my laziest round ever... I pretty much logged in a few times a week and that was it. So boring as usual.

I am also, but then again I have logged in once since friday night and my planet is of no significance lol.


R37 was a better round in recent memory, that was for the most part, action the entire round. Shame the one lone turtle left actually won the NW scores - but that was due to lack of foresight on the opposing team tongue.gif Courage scores reflected the real winners better.

it has become impossible for 90% of the player base to make one hit without being hit 5 times in 10 hours. the fundamental principles of the game have changed. nuking someone who hits you is seen as about as acceptable as rape, despite the fact they have no other way to retaliate.

the rules arent to blame. chick and fugs arent to blame. i struggle to think of people who more readily bend over backwards to help you, or heaven forbid, give you a free game to play.

youre to blame. i'll take blame myself. weve all become a bunch of whinging, complaining, arrogant arseholes that we have driven 90% of the player base away from what used to be a great game. we will NEVER get the players back to make this game fun again. we will NEVER make this game accessable for everyone again.


This here quoted - is exactly the problem with GA.

I managed last round to make hits all round and not get KT'd. I was Triskiadekaphobia btw. That wasn't the same for my system however - some of the more active offensive players got targeted. And then said morons who targeted complained about a turtle winning the round.

I was interested in last round solely because of the people in my system - I couldn't care for the rest of the game. Won't be playing this round and have been fed up with the people in this game for about 10 or more rounds now, and I just don't see it getting better.

I agree too that Chick and Fugs have done amazing things in setting up these games that are inherently free. However I disagree with the fact they aren't to take some 'blame' as you put it. The thing is, if this game was policed and updated and improved on a more consistent basis - keep things active from the Admin side down has to be the way it works, NOT the other way around. And that's why we've lost so many great players and a large player database. It wasn't a sudden thing - it was a gradual thing, which is indicative of a consistent decline in activeness, rather than suddenly becoming bad.

Winning this round? That's really nothing to brag about, including your NW/land.

Not trying to put a dampener on thing, just being realistic...

Well thats how a turtle is winning (your system announcement your idiot AL probably posted). taking guys like Abs out the game. if he was still about there is no way a turlte would have made No1


Exactly. If you take out some of the biggest offensive players because you can't take getting hit and can't take the fact someone is bigger than you, AND THEN complain that a turtle wins the round - you only have yourself to blame and deserve to be bloody KT'd at the very least. Idiots... Same thing every round. Pathetic...

I've played through the game four times by now, still not done *everything* so I'll get it for PC and get through it a few times on there as well. My average save count per game is 105.


Assassins Creed possibly has a worse auto-save feature... Grrr...

This was a decent round.No turtles survived (except Mr Jones) - and thanks mainly to 2:6, the whole round consisted in fighting one way or another. The way it should be. Shame we didn't have a lot more people, would have made it really fantastic. I do wish I could have stuck around longer, I enjoyed a round for once! (Oh and despite BA's system msg, I did disband all of my sci's lol)

Though I do agree with DL's post earlier, Chick - please reinstate an alliance size limit. I really don't know why it was ever removed in the first place.

Strongest Alliances in the Universe
Rank Alliance Total Networth
1 NewbCakes 590,072,187
2 NoFear 78,334,601
3 HellKlim 58,498,639

This is just ridiculous - if we had a size limit we could have the war carrying on competitively till the end of the round. Wars are won on pure simple numbers of people, if Boogie/Newbcakes had equal number of systems then I personally think it would have been even more intense, fun and comptetive for everyone concerned. Just a shame Newbcakes had so many numbers over Boogie.

Newbcakes, if you want to do something decent - you should take Mr Jones down a peg or two. He's the last big turtle in the round, and was ex-2:10. A turtle winning just doesn't fit the tone of this round lol.


QUOTE(The Dark Lord @ Mar 8 2008, 03:02 PM) *
We took care of our competition? The last few rounds weren't a total turtlefest, the Britney Spears group was Me, Kane, Wicky, Richi and superrockmonkey, and as I recall, we were involved in a few wars, just nothing as large scale as what happened this round.


The alliance were more balanced in system numbers then BA. Even though we (2:6) were by far the strongest in-depth system towards the end, us versus that many planets/system - it just wasn't gonna end well lol. But we gave our own bloody good share of damage and I'm just glad that certain moron hasn't got a chance to win this round ;)R35 was a good round, though it got boring at the end...

The majority of players - minus a few - simply can't take getting hit at all.

They cry and have tantrums and send missiles/suicide after getting hit. Awful.
