Is anyone here from the old days of the first Universe still?
« on: December 24, 2018, 12:38:47 AM »
Just wondering what's it like now that so much time has gone by.

When I joined it was before there were moons.  There was a constant buzz amongst the internal forums of what was going on in the galaxy. 

When I left, people were hanging around not knowing what to do with their accounts, hoping for an all out clash or selling off their account or going into dip mode.  I imagine with the NPC type enemies, it changed a lot of how people play the game?

There are still a few of us around. I started original when the universe was about a month old. The game was all about pvp then now it is all about farming with a little pvp thrown in. I played in quite a lot of the different universes, but generally played the faster ones. Now I am back playing a slow one (uni 5). I like the speed of the extreme universes, but the fleets just get too big and cumbersome and judo costs too much to actually use those large fleets unless you have piles of disposable income.

I started in early Dec 2009. Joined the Rigellian Compact (RgC) a week later. Was unexpectedly appointed Leader in March of 2010. Led my alliance for almost 9 years continuously.

I just quit Original on Dec 15, 2018. This game has changed very much over the years, and is a faint shadow of the way it was when it all started. Memories, in most cases.

That is not dead which can eternal lie, and with strange aeons even death may die.

I am still here. Though I believe that barely anyone would remember me.

Don't worry I remember wiping you several times in x1 when you were still high ranked, and then my little brother was able to farm you after that since you never learned how to fleet save.

Absolutely nothing. I\'ll cuss a few times, mutter "holy crap, I\'m not even going to battlecalc that" and have nightmares about 10000 capitol ships descending upon my homeworld.

I started up x5 a little under a month ago with foil, neither of us have played since the month npc were added to x2. For how new the uni is it looks like a ghost town...

We are both hoping for some good pvp action but I am not too optimistic about it with all of the npc targets, that and I am still unsure of the battle algorithm changes, since right after I quit in 2012 they made all attacks with 10 milion+ ships use a terrible algorithm since it processed faster... I couldn't find anything newer on the topic so I can only assume that it went into place and nothing else changed...
