Forts and whining

This is not round 3. You don't get to fort and then whine when you get hit, over and over, when there are so few targets.

I just had a quick flick through.

In cluster 1, there is 5 gals with ct, and 4 forts. That just leaves 1:1 to hit.

If we add cluster 1/2/3, there are 14 ct gals. There are 8 forts.

That just leaves as targets.
02:03 (5 hittable)
02:09 (7 hittbale)
03:04 (4 hittable)
03:06 (4 hittable)
03:08 (4 hittable)
03:10 (5 hittable)

6 gals. Out of 30. And we can't even hit everyone in those 5 gals cause some are so small.
300 planets. We can hit 29 of them.
And we only have two naps.
These figures replicate all through the universe.

The universe is tiny yet you idiots think you can sign naps with half of it and fort the other half, so that the smaller alliances can't do anything.

Things have changed. The universe is so small that just can't be done.

Be pissed off if I hit your fort, I don't really care.
But consider this... This week I have been accused of hitting p3n/nd/dlr/stellar/carnage. We have hit everyone and anyone, some because they are fat, some because they hit us and we retaliated. The universe is so small no matter what gal we hit, someone will be pissed off. I am past caring.
As for co-ordinating, I don't give a **** who knows our targets, they get leaked anyway. What others do is up to them. Just about everyone knows our targets before launch anyway.

But if certain people think they can bottom feed, they will have to deal with the consequences.

Re: Forts and whining

I just want to add a big thumbs up to dlr/stellar and the other small alliances. They don't whine, they openly accept we will have to hit each other and they just get on with it.

Well played. You know where I am if you need anything.

Re: Forts and whining

Because that 1 wave from 2 planets of retal inc from p3ng sure was bottom feeding. No wonder we deserved ct hitting a 6 man p3ng fort at the same time as the carn/her block.

Love the big post and confidence Forest, because you think your pulling all the strings behind the scenes. But like always I'm sure everything will blow up in ct face just like every other recent round and ct will go back to being the most irrelevant alliance going around.

Do you mean my leaderships as in me? A player who is barely playing and only attacks properly at weekends and only logs in for an hour each evening? A player who only has a planet in memory of a friend who passed?

Or do you mean GM? Cause that would be a bit bizarre after everything he has done for the game.

Rather ironic protest from the alliance that is infamous for sulking about gal raids...

Lets look at it this way. Every day CaRn/Hersey have hit p3ng/ND/FL, and every day p3ng/ND/FL have been hitting CaRn/Hersey. This means that everytime a alliance in either block im doing that at the same time as they are being hit by someone else.

Solution? War the mining page.

Re: Forts and whining

And yet 6 6 are running away with it with a 9m lead and 7k roids more over the next biggest by size galaxy. It's a joke and no galaxy should be afforded that much freedom and that few incs in a round

Pfft

IF only the ally race wasn't so well contested maybe people would pay attention? But quite simply the guys in 6 6 are the only really decent gal out there this round.

Would like to have seen where they would have ended up in a more gal contested round like maybe last round - Oh waiit yeah they did play and they were quite simply not in any contention for the Gal Win

sore loser like always, and when you do manage to win with all your "skills" (leeching/multis/pnaps and other sketchy deals) then you act like a shit winner aswell.

Re: Forts and whining

6:6 is winning because this is a good round.
Nobody cares about winning galaxies, and maybe considering removing it from EORC would be a good idea.

I disagree, this is an off round, 6 6 has no competition, but the majority of rounds there is 2/3 possibly 4 galaxys battling it out for the top spot, they work hard for, and deserve to be in the EORC.

We’ve had incs pretty much every day but don’t let facts get in the way of a good moan 😉

Re: Forts and whining

I still wonder if with the lack of players and all, we should start looking at removing galaxies entierly and make it only one tier.

Re: Forts and whining

Hmm. Interesting idea. Heartless and me had a loooong discussion about that years ago, but we were looking to replace it with something else (with all the dev time that'd involve). Maybe just plain removing them is enough.

An alternative approach would be to remove alliances instead, and let people form 60-man private galaxies instead. Increase the in-gal travel time by a couple of ticks, and rename 'galaxy' to 'alliance', and you've basically got the same end result. You'd have to deal with switching alliances, though, and people who aren't in an alliance.
