Fair comment, in my defence when I started the thread I didn't know it was you doing it, and thought that it was multiple alliances doing the same thing.

I believe that others have raised this with you directly and it changed nothing.

Bull! You implied and then directly named me. So, let me set you straight on a few things here:

I have no idea what other alliances are doing, but I'm sure in some way they are "pulling" lower ranked players - including your own alliance. I have no need to defend myself as to what I do with my account, how I play how I share with/support other players because really it's none of your business. But since you've decided to be a troll and accuse me of something in such a public manner here are some of the way's I have supported / handed out res.

Rebuilt a Maquis Fleet after the player was downed by a stroke and lost everything before we were able to get BFG to secure the account

Rebuilt a fleet for someone in another alliance after they were downed by a heart attack and the account couldn't be secured by the alliance in time.

Rebuilt several fleets of Alliance mates and non-alliance friends who for personal and/or inattentiveness went inactive and lost everything

Helped several new players get a good jump start in the hopes that they might actually stick around and provide some new blood to the universe.

Helped a non-alliance player who took over a high ranked but poorly built account to get it rebuilt so it was playable in the current NPC dominated world.

Provided res to alliance mates to finish and or upgrade Hydro Storage. Since the needed hydro is hard to come by and the cost of multiple conversions was threatening to drive them from the game.

And lets not forget some of you non-alliance mates. The df's I collected for some of you and then returned to you many times the value of what I collected. The DF's I left un-collected near you. The random gifts.

On to your other point. Yeah a year ago I gave probe rides as a Christmas gift to my alliance. What I was hitting was much smaller a year ago. When everyone else whined and complained. I stopped doing it. (It was a one time thing anyways) My point is I stopped and moved onto a more philanthropic way of helping out and as stated above, not just my own people.

In the end if I was doing what you have accused me of.. pulling all my alliance mates up TRUST ME you would know it. With my average npc hit as of today generating 32 Trillion DSP and and 18-20 Quadrillion Res... Do you not think I'd already have the top 10 filled with nothing but Maquis?

So fine then. I'd say this topic is appropriately named because I am Fed up with this. Fed up with being blamed for everything that is wrong with this universe. When a buddy is attacked and I come to their defense everyone screams not fair you're so much bigger. When the npc's not generated off of me are "too hard to hit" Somehow that gets blamed on me for growing too fast. When someones ego can't handle being knocked out of the top 10 because they've been out played by someone... yup same story. So I'm done, done trying to make everyone happy, done playing by your rules, done trying to play nice.

Gentlemen of the Maquis, come on down the "Ride the Coattail Bistro and Buffet" is now open for business. It's easy street from here on in boys.

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.

Ice fishing is fun but I have never caught a fish this size!  equally amusimg is how the guy freaks out about it  :)

A battle between a pride of lions, a herd of buffalo, and 2 crocodiles at a watering hole in South Africa's Kruger National Park while on safari.

Now that has to be about the most epic battle in nature I think I've ever seen!

Along that line, The number 1 ranked player came for me once when I was ranked in the mid-600's. His fleet directly against my fleet the calcs came out at draw with both fleets pretty much decimated. So as someone else said here #1 rank does not always mean best fleet.
