Fed up with this
« on: October 18, 2014, 03:08:01 PM »
OK, i'm all up for buddies giving a hand to those below them in the ranks, but when d mode players start making it into the top ten it's getting a bit silly.

it is starting to make the game pointless for me, uni2 already has a winner in KK, but now the game is getting even more lopsided with a number of Marquis and xXx d mode players shooting up the ranks, flying past players who have worked long and hard for their positions.

Grumble over for now

erm,........ looks like those players don't deserve to be in the top 10 if a d moder can overtake them !!!

Yes, he is a perma D player.      The issue that I believe Grumbleweed appears fed up with is the amount of resources handed to certain players by their alliance members which has allowed them to leap frog past players who attack for their resources.

yes Phil, I am aware that players can still gain rank in d mode, but this guy has risen up the ranks in a crazy fashion whilst in d mode the whole time, he is one of many (10, in the top 100 that I believe are benefitting) that appear to be growing RSP faster than I can, and I'm running 4 or 5 attacks a day requiring over 100m dios a time

shame, looks like you need to find a better alliance or learn how to play in a more focused manner :(

oddly no rules are being broken and lots of alliances pull players.

He just passed me in fleet rank - by about 7 billion ships. And still in d mode...

I am commander carter first I am not a perma D-mode player the reason I was in D-mode was because I was upgrading my warpgates now if any of you are real players you will know that if your warp gates are down you can not defend that planet or do Ninja style attacks second I made a mistake when ship building thus the jump in fleet size if any of you have a problem with the way I play the game please let me know and I will do my best to change so that you like me for the nice kind person I am if you dont like me well thats your problem not mine  :)

hahahaha, CMC, well put and funny at the same time. I dont play your uni, but I can understand the other players' frustration(s). However, if you are playing within the established parameters of the game, those players need to develop their own strategies to compete against you, rather than bitch about what you are doing.

at least be honest, your fleet and rsp jumps have occurred whilst in d mode.

You have received huge res deposits from players in your alliance ranked much higher than most in the game, or told where to send dios.

Perfectly legal, I admit, but your rank is provided to you, not earned.  Now you have a massive fleet you should be able to keep it, as there are only a couple of players in the uni, not in your alliance, that can compete.

There are a large number of Maquis gaining massive advances in RSP and fleet, which again is within the rules, but they aren't gaining it through playing the game the way most players would consider "fair".

We all know KK has won the game by a country mile, and now it seems is making sure the Maquis do the same on the alliance front.  Fair enough, you win

What do we do now?

@lazoputz

there isn't a strategy that can complete when the one dominant player in the game decides to develop others at a pace that even the 2nd place player can keep up with on their own growth.  Uni2 has become rather more lopsided than most others I suspect:

1   Supreme Conqueror Kapt K Khaos‎   Maquis   5,421,117,193,400,973
2   Emperor JayCee‎   xXx   1,725,839,810,384,695
3   Emperor Osirus‎   xXx   882,435,685,620,088
4   Grand Warlord napl2‎   Maquis   13,650,006,375,464
5   Grand Warlord CAPTAIN SKEENAN‎   xXx   6,240,937,529,582
6   Grand Warlord Anij‎   xXx   5,562,776,264,101
7   Grand Warlord CreoleLakerFan‎ (d)   Maquis   4,355,008,611,306
8   High Warlord Cali Single Guy‎   xXx   2,142,761,531,882
9   High Warlord Commander M. Carter‎   Maquis   1,738,653,089,979
10   High Warlord GrumbleWeed‎   StarWars   1,311,339,089,467

I can't even begin to tell you how much i appreciate you coming to me directly with any concerns you might have had. I'm very glad you picked that path over going straight to the court of public opinion like internet trolls do.

I won't ever claim that i don't help out my friends. In fact i seem to recall helping out several of you who have posted here today on several occasions. So if this is not acceptable behaviour on my part then I sincerely apologize and you can have bfg transfer those donations back to me as a shipping error.

In the meantime if you think i've unfairly helped others move up in the rankings... just wait.

You ain't seen nuthin' yet.
