It is for that very reason that an empty throne should not be in the short list

NO round name should EVER refer to an alliance, especially not one as undeserving as exilition
Hell not even Fury and Legion who are/were FAR FAR more deserving of that got one

One questions how all these little co-incidences have occurred.
  • Exilition found not guilty by multihunters, despite previous closures
  • Exilition winning the round
  • Exilition having their egos massaged far more in the end of round ceremony then other alliances have ever been
  • Exilition having a round essentially named after them

ONE QUESTIONS THE IMPARTIALITY OF THOSE IN PATEAM WHO HAVE DECIDED THIS SHORTLIST AND THE SANITY OF THOSE WHO THINK IT WOULD MAKE A GOOD ROUND NAME

Why not reveal who posted each of the names in the short list, let us see which pateam members they all are buddy-buddy with, hell even post the complete list of submissions to see if they truely were the more deserving choices.

Should an empty throne win, then the next round in my eyes will be little more then a farce, an echo of a game bereft of competant and impartial leaders

What have they to hide?

Not paranoid no, but the choice of name is one of those co-incidences in a long chain. on their own they arent too bad but combined they are disasterous

Re: Vote: Name the round competition for round XIV

Well.. I dont think it's the end of the world.. nor that this great conspiricy idea in Pa is very suiting. Last round was last round. I have forgotten all about it, and I dont want to remember it. Let us all please focus on the tasks ahead instead of looking behind..

Re: Vote: Name the round competition for round XIV

looking ahead is all well and good but explain to me why an alliance, so undeserving should have a round named to suit them?
Especially since far far greater alliances in the past never had this done for them, nor would ever have if spinner was still around

Re: Vote: Name the round competition for round XIV

I see 'An Empty Throne' as laying down a challenge to the other alliances to storm their way to the top. Where there is no one dominant force, a power-vacuum if you will.

I spent much of the round at war with eXilition, so I'm not even biased towards them.


I can just see a good round name when I see one.

Re: Vote: Name the round competition for round XIV

The name suits the political situation in the game ALOT more than it calls eXilition heroes. Alot of alliances can win round 14. I am counting atleast 5-6 alliances. They are gonna battle it out, and the result will be the alliance sitting on the top. The empty throne title can aswell be looked upon as a tribute to whoever wins round 14.

Re: Vote: Name the round competition for round XIV

the fact it calls them heros is enough.
Regardless of the other ways it can be spun to suit, the fact a round name which directly complements a single alliance is a dangerous and irresponsible precident.
Pateam are meant to be independant for a reason, this in my opinion crosses the line, or at least blurs it beyond tolerance

Re: Vote: Name the round competition for round XIV

to clear one point up - pateam did not know who submitted the name ideas when the short list was compilied, only I know who submitted which, and i'd have to check my email in order to find that out, which I have no intention of doing until after the name is decided.

Re: Vote: Name the round competition for round XIV

Whats there to hide Kal?
We're all going to find out the name of the person who submitted it anyway, and those who want their friends to vote for their own will have already told them that the one they submitted is there, and what it is.
What possible harm is there in showing who submitted each of the shortlisted entries, or showing the rejected ones

again i repeat, what do you have to hide.

Re: Vote: Name the round competition for round XIV

*sigh*
this looks like 'fun' eh.

What usually happens is :
All the entries get mailed to one person. that person then shows the complete list to pateam who each pick 5 of their favourites from that list.
those lists ( which more often then not, overlap ) are then put to the public vote.

On one hand i agree with mr pedantic a certain amount : its not a name which should really have been chosen in my opinion as its too close to certain alliances, and its irrelevent for a space game. - plus as mentioned, there was no such honour for the old-time greats such as fury, legion, concordium etc.

On the other i agree with pateam - i would be surprised if there was a mass conspiracy to ensure a certain name, or selection of names won.

regardless, the name choice is undoubtedly damaging for pateam due to the obvious implications and one i dont think i would have chosen personally for the reasons i mentioned above.

Divided Loyalties. Because it kinda reflects my personal situation right now with alliances. And it seems a little less crap to me than the other names (my opinion only).

Re: Vote: Name the round competition for round XIV

an empty throne sounds more like a AoM name or something. to me it just doesn't 'fit' the space game genre. it implies we have kings.. maybe we did a long time ago (SK lolz) but imho it has nothing to do with the current situation. i think divided loyalties would be a more appropriate name since exhil players will now have to find another alliance.. etc etc.
my two cents anyway

Re: Vote: Name the round competition for round XIV

first off, imo (which i could care less bout exilition participating or not in round 14) this whole argument bout "the empty throne" refering to an alliance is just someone that doesnt like exilition and is looking for a "below the belt" way to seek vengeance for personal discomfort.

second, the title "the empty throne" can be better interpretted like this--->the round is basically a competition between races, galaxies,alliances, and planets....so in other words its a fight for control and supremacy over others (sounds like a dispute for an empty throne to me)

third, history shows that no matter the technology or the civilization, some type of ruler or government always takes control, why should the future in theory be ne different in acknowlegding a "holder of the throne" so to speak in reference to the winners of round 14.

so imo "The Empty Throne" would be an excellent and very fitting title for round 14.....and if u want to argue still go ahead.....just remember i hav more moogles than u

Therefore, lines dont exist, which means squares dont, neither do cubes, or any other polygons.So geometry doesnt exist either.

Re: Vote: Name the round competition for round XIV

The Empty Throne is good, for each new round the Throne is empty and planets/alliances have to fight for it.
In France, the 'throne' refers also to the toilet seat, i imagine the 'Empty Throne' means people are so busy playing PA, they don't have the time to go to the loo.

Re: Vote: Name the round competition for round XIV

I don't think there is a problem with "Throne" and sci-fi - there is absolutely no reason why one can't have terms from royalty in scifi - Star Wars is a good example of a sci-fi series with terms from royalty etc.

Divided Loyalties mainly because from what I've seen there's a lot of ppl who don't seem to know the word "loyalty" and because it's also a Babylon 5 episode name (ep 19 of season 2 iirc)


p.s. w00t my 1st post....see what work does to ppl....

Without bothering to read your whole post, i'd like to point out that Round 3: A New Dawn was very similar in name to the alliance, New Dawn.

So the precedent already exists .

Re: Vote: Name the round competition for round XIV

[19:03] <Sovereign> i kinda like the echoes of time name, as with stealing for all races, and some rather silly comments that the stats are moving back to R1-5 type stats where everyone had the same ships etc. So in a way, R14 is harking back to the old rounds of PA .

Plus, it would fit in nicely with the ruler/planet name that i had though of changing for the first time since R3 (when i first started). That in itself is reason enough .

Re: Vote: Name the round competition for round XIV

Echos of Time or An Empty Throne are clearly the best names there. I'm voting for the latter because of the amount of player movement between alliances coming up to this round and it will be interesting to see who comes out on top.

Takes them 5 seconds to amend it so tell them and they will but well spotted I did not notice it myself but still gets my vote for reasons above I am sure Aryn can adjust it to be right.

Thought these accusations ended months ago. Definitely the wrong forum anyway. Go make a new thread on AD about it, like the 20 other people did.

"An Empty Throne" got my vote. Seems fitting tbh as every round there is an empty throne no more so than this coming round

An Empty Throne for me too. It really feels like setting the stage for the challenge of alliances for the number one spot, which seems likely to be hotter next round than most.
