Sorry JJL. I'm not interested in giving much time to a dead game. AG's been abandoned by the owner a long time ago. laugh

I'm still logging in a few times a month though to ensure that I will remain the one above all for the next decade.


Too bad it would have been fun.


As for those attacks on me reg, good job spending time and resources wasted finding my ships doing COMs and spending so much AP to hit me.   Feel free to keep wasting resources.

Since not enough corps seem interested in this and not enough of the ones that area seem to bother with the forums. the games will begin soon.  Rules seem to be out the window but I will still impose a limitation on myself in the interest of fairness to others.  I won't attack any ship that I see doing a COM mission. All communication on the forum will be silent now until I announce the start of the games.

I might be willing to give mining another try after War Games which has not officially begun yet. That is still in discussion among the corps. Some of the weaker captains are all for it. Power level limits need to be figured out.  Surprise attacks should really be restricted no AP speedup at all in the interest of fairness.  Power levels of raiding ships should also have a cap. Either a flat across the board cap or on based on the enemy power level.  I think the former is a better option.  I also open to some locations within rings 0-2 being exempt from being attacked.

I'm glad, for your sake, that some captains have shown an interest in you games. I am not interested myself. I would prefer to be left alone.

That case support borders and then do your stuff out past them for a while.  I don't think having the wars way in far reaches is a good idea. It's too far to expect newbies to travel. The inner rings on the other hand is already right there for them and it makes for a good arena. Decent size but not too big and the border to safe areas isn't too far for a newbie to get to. As I said before I would be willing to help newbies move out further if they need it before the games begin.

1 Concerning the games idea suggested by you guys, I haven't really been able to read it over fully yet.  I have actually been busy with stuff outside the game in the real world. I plan on reading over either today or tomorrow. I am surprised more people haven't commented on it though. The skim of it I took looked decent.  


2. Honestly I only mentioned the SPQNR hit which it turns out I misread the name,which I already admitted to and apologized for misreading, to show I am not afraid. To be honest getting smashed to bits or having COMs disrupted doesn't really bother me much.  I also find it kind of humorous that you decide to take something I've done out on other players. I already received a message from glassman about being hit by Regnad.  You do realize at this point right now I don't care if people hit my members  Though Glassman hasn't expressed any interest in joining me in on these war games. Also in case you haven't noticed I haven't really been hitting anyone the past couple days.  My initial runs were to test some things out.  To be honest I would have thought your Corp would be interested in these games. Rings 0, 1 and 2 are pretty much drained of natural resources. The usefulness of most things there is very low.1  It make for a good open battle arena.  Miners and other players who want no part in it can be moved further out where they can make a bigger income anyways.  This would also give us a chance to get rid of anything belonging to inactive players. 2   Also by keeping it in this area we don't have to worry about unstable stars getting in the way of stations and stuff created for the purpose of the games 3.

1 - you were never a miner so you probably don't know that resources can regenerate on planetary bodies.
2 - JJL Janitorial is back in business
3 - We tame unstable stars



3. I left because I was bored but that wasn't why I stayed gone.  I got busy in the real world.  My time for games are a lot more limited then they used to be.  I have thought of returning many times but only recently felt really motivated to come back.



(edit - well you knew it was coming)

I tried mining though.  It really wasn't very profitable lol.  Still that doesn't mean the inners aren't still mined dry.   Maybe this will give them a chance to regenerate themselves more.

JJL, why did you return?

There are many games out there that would suit your jingoistic attitude. Why come back to the one you dismissed as worthless.
Is it because you would have to start slow and weak (in a new game) while instead you can  return to a game where your power ranks you in 'upper-middle class'?


Aren't you being a bit generous? a third of our members have personal power ratings higher than his entire Corp.  I know you are famous for your magnanimous attitude, but I though you more of a realist than that. 12

Edit ... out of respect for the master.

It's called diplomacy.

What I find funny is they are actually as bloodthirsty or more so then myself. SPQNR actually demanded they be added to my exempt list for the games. As soon as I refused they began attacks declaring the games against me beginning. This tells me they don't actually care if I go after the rest of the galaxy.  Just not them.  How is that fair?  They also brought up that they thought we had a NAP from the GC days.  There really wasn't one.  It was more a mutual understand. Now after the games The Galactic Empire will be willing to discuss new NAPs and alliances with other corporations.

Others I have tried are even more boring and most have paywalls. Also these days I don't even play games like these. I play MMOs more.  I also have a job and so that takes up my time as well.   I returned because I did miss the game some.  At least the good old days.  I have actually started to feel the old drive to do things in the game again.  A drive I really haven't had since the old days.  The urge to do stuff in the game.  By the time Raph has come on to the scene I was already bored with the game.  I am sure my ex-corp members noticed that.

I am willing to discuss possible locations not be allowed to be targeted. For example S/Tau Ceti E1 is now exempt from attacks. max_creative messaged me expressing his interest in the games. He asked if I could leave that one location alone and I agreed.  It is nice to see not everyone is butthurt over this.   Also I really think ring 3 and further being safe zones for those wanting to avoid the games would be a good idea.   I would even be willing to help people relocate if they want to move before the start of the games.  Pre-made match ups with set rules is a good idea but so is random attacking.  That said we can also set power level limits on ships used for attacking and defending for fairness to the weaker players.    As for those not wanting to participate, if you don't want to get hit then get out of dodge.  As I mentioned before I would be willing to help with relocation. If you wish me not to know where you are going it is fine.   I can help with cargo bays.

Nope. If you are going to find them I want you to at least work for them.  This isn't my first rodeo.  Now if you wish to actually discuss some War Games rules prior to the official start we can do that.  Those agreeing to participate can name certain places untouchable. I would also be willing to the discussion out of boundary area.  Perhaps all battles being restricted to   rings 0, 1 and 2.   This would allow corps with important assets further out to be protected.  It would also give those who aren't looking to participate a place they can go to be safe.   Honestly these are ideas I had when i came up with this but I wanted to see if anyone else wanted to suggest them.  BTW I still want to know who that was you attacked lol
11  General Talk / News & Strategy / Re: War Games on: January 11, 2019, 10:19:11 PM
Honestly I don't care who makes more RP an hour right now. Maybe you do.  So what? I am doing upgrades more for COM purposes then anything and because it needs done.  As for hiding in safe zones,  who says all ships are in them? Most are out and about right now.  They aren't hiding.  Just doing their jobs.

I will ask again though, who was that person you hit?  You said 14 left but that clearly wasn't me you hit.  Why not answer the simple question? I bet other captains might like to know as well.
12  General Talk / News & Strategy / Re: War Games on: January 11, 2019, 10:10:21 PM
Your 24,312,300 vs my 5,529,405 which is one of my weaker COM ships. 

Mine too. LOL! Hell, sonny, my MINING ships are bigger than that.



That is no surprise with how long I have been gone. Hell I got so many science points I don't know what to do with.  A problem I had when I left lol.  I need to upgrade everything to certain points before I even think of using them. 
13  General Talk / News & Strategy / Re: War Games on: January 11, 2019, 10:05:32 PM
Also why are you ignoring my question on who that was you attacked?  I mean you made such a big deal over it.
14  General Talk / News & Strategy / Re: War Games on: January 11, 2019, 10:04:36 PM
Your 24,312,300 vs my 5,529,405 which is one of my weaker COM ships.  I think not. I imagine it was powered down some too like you were doing with your other one.  I am going to begin working on upgrades and new ships soon.  The upgrades on my ships are long overdue. Part of the war games will be hide and seek. It is a good skill for less powerful Captain to learn. 
15  General Talk / News & Strategy / Re: War Games on: January 11, 2019, 09:50:42 PM
So who was it you hit thinking it was me?  Anyone that's knows my stuff knows how I name everything. The name and lack of combat report on my end shows it wasn't me. If it was one of my people I really don't care. I haven't heard from any of them on the subject of the War Games.

I got a pair thank you.  But no point sticking around for a battle that won't even be close to a chance of winning at this time. BTW that damage you did to that 1 ship wasn't really a lot. The ship is already COM worthy again.
