Hell, I gave you your shot. I am somebody that offered a lot of new faces a recommendation and some encouragement, and are now regular faces in top flight play. Maybe you should be a little more thoughtful to such things, hm?

But then I suppose it's easier to pretend that I'm some sort of big evil megalomaniac, and that I hate new people. The fact is, I just hate people that think far more of themselves than they probably should.

yeah, bush is really a very subjective world. also, people only see what they wanna see around here. :<

i wonder why the alliances below COG have been losing their members. some conspiracy to kill the game completely even more quickly? then, well done, i guess! ;D

all this talk about kill the game more quickly has given me the giggles.

the game is dead. it died while i was not playing. only people left are hardcore/ die hard fans and people who buy private worlds. it doesn't need killed.

the game needs shut off so this stuff about people actively killing it stops. no need to shut it off from azzer's standpoint as long as he gets a few more bucks than he spends on it. simply need people to get a better perspective and cease assaulting expired equestrians.

Precisely. The methods in which people can choose to attack is up to them - I can just give them the tools to do better. Not everybody uses these methods, so simply tarring everybody with it would be unfair at absolute best.

As Garrett said, Bushtarion is dead. These problems wouldn't be problems had we had even 100 more people to shoulder the burden of those that want to increase in size. It is possible to get more of a playerbase - Just nobody can seem to be bothered.

>>I say BS on the latter as that would make you a self loather, which is certainly not the essential DAX the Great.
No I'm pretty sure the former is a more accurate description - LOL who is pretending?<<<

megalomaniac - a pathological egotist
egoist, egotist, swellhead - a conceited and self-centered person

In the social world, 'megalomania...can be a characteristic of power-drunk or control-freak dictators, some executives, some politicians and some army generals'. All such figures may be said to have 'a "Big Ego". A baby's ego, in fact, insufficiently shrunk....So they're much more likely to miscalculate. To offend people'

A megalomaniac is a self-centered, power-crazed egomaniac that is obsessed with their goals for conquering cities and countries and world domination, they're rather over-obsessed with power rather than actual conquest. They also often fantasize of greatness, fame, wealth, grandeur, omnipotence predominate and servitude. Because of all the power driving them to becoming critically insane their minds are separated from reality since they also don't care what happens to anything at all as they care about themselves.

You have sent this alliance to a fantasy position where they receive barely any incoming and have a big brother to retaliate for them. That's not "top flight play" and it certainly doesn't allow them to prove their worth as they have no opponent.

All you have done is give them the space to "bully" lower alliances without consequence.

James - If you're going to try and psychoanalyse somebody, please don't just rip the definitions from Google. And also it's probably wise to not simply psychoanalyse a forum persona that I use to hilarious effect. You've never really played alongside me, so you haven't got a clue. But hey, if it makes you feel clever, then go for it. I'm still laughing on this end. Sorry to hear that you're so gullible.

At least half of that alliance are now experienced players that you will know - So actually to keep a mass of solos at bay and away from their land for so long and as consistently does indicate they deserve their place whether you're happy to admit it or not.

News from your sources is that in 5 ticks, 370,100,000 people from Aftermath will arrive to attack you.
Sun 4th Feb, year 4. Early hours 4 Ticks Ago Motion alarms
Motion alarms were beeping along various corridors, but we could not see anybody. Somebody is obviously trying to spy.
Sun 4th Feb, year 4. Midnight 5 Ticks Ago Hack detected
Our IDS alerted us of a possible hack attempt, but we couldn't trace the hackers IP in time.

It's a totally legit method - You guys hit sleep mode to protect your score and you wouldn't dare attack us (because you're genuinely incapable even when we came out of sleep and were half of your combined score). All I'm hearing is boo-hoo-hoo. In my eyes, you're getting exactly what you deserved in response to your attempts to turn us into land farms. Now you hide in sleep mode at night because we are attacking/killing you all the time.

In short, you picked the wrong group to get on the wrong side of.
