Lol Albert, I miss seeing the SW tag attached to your name. Congrats on being in the "most feared" poll although I'm a little upset that you have more votes that we do  :)  Looks like I'm gonna have to take Devo's advice and crack that whip. Maybe it's time to do some ballot stuffing. As for my fleet, you just keep your distance haha, although I could use a moon now that I think about it. Ahh well that should change oh in about 3 or 4 more hours if I'm lucky. Cross your fingers 4 me bro.

AbsolutZero, your ignorance is worthy of legend.

Everyone else, I can't believe you still bother with this guy. Remember the old saying. "Never argue with an idiot, because someone passing by may not know the difference"

Well I'm sure as hell never going to be known for being a great player, so I might as well be known for something :)

I admitted defeat somewhere in the last 2 pages, Vanvely insisted on continuing a conversation I had no intention of ever even reading again.

Also, I conducted the entire debate without throwing one insult, it'd be nice to see you show the same courtesy, Noel

Ehhhh....no.  Sorry, but you get no prize for an incorrect answer.


Is your name occasionally changed to "Joe" to protect your identity?

No, they are silent, in observance of those who oppose us, because eventually, they all lose.

Empire.  Still Undefeated.

Well, not much left of the Empire these days, but people are still afraid!



All I did was give this guy a moon and people are going (!) left and right.

sorry, that makes no sense, the guy you hit is not the person going into dip mode...just cause a person that happens to be in the same system as you goes into dip mode in no way means they are afraid of you...now if it had been the person you hit, then it might actually mean the person was afraid of you

My apologies for not replying sooner - I didn't notice your response!

You obviously have never played under the tag Empire.  When you land in a new system, 2 or 3 people go (d) before you even launch your first attack.  It generally coincides with the moment they notice the tag Empire or the planet named "Empire Welcome Center."

And yes, the guy that I did hit went into diplomacy mode as well.  And the guy coming out of diplomacy mode in my previous picture (whodat (d!)) only stayed out for about a day - as soon as I recycled his fleet, he re-entered diplomacy mode.




In conclusion, yes, people are still afraid of the Big Bad R.I.P. Empire.

only a noob or an idiot is afraid of any alliance...all it takes is being able to fleetsave properly which is not hard in the least and that alliance can never touch you...that being said, just because a person goes into dip mode in no way means they are afraid of you...I am in dip mode right now simply because I am on vacation and not checking in every day...granted I will be coming out of dip mode the day I get home but still being in dip mode in no way means you are afraid of anyone

Agreed, I always wanted an Empire Welcome Center to move into my area so that, if nothing else, I can say that I didn't go into D-mode.

Looks like this one-member alliance called "Spanks your butt like a red headed stepchild" has taken 1st place in alliance average score  :lol: . He probably did that as a joke. This is why I look at both rankings. By alliance total, ANH is 1st. By alliance average, Spanks is 1st. But with a balanced view, taking both rankings into account, neither of them are close to the top. This dual-ranking system is working out pretty well--it's very robust.

Idiot, noob, whatever.  People are still afraid of the Big Bad Empire.



And I only hit this guy once so far!

The Omega guys are standing strong - I'm surrounded by them and nobody has hit the (d) button yet.  I'll be sure to check in again when/if they do.
