You should also realise that in ConPlays you've taken on board a captain with a New Roman death warrant and a bounty on his head.

Excellent ideas.  There needs to be room for unexpected attacks though too.  It teaches players to be more aware of their surroundings.  Which is important to learn do you can handle yourself better in situations such as when new pirates appear. Pirating is popular in the early game.  There aren't many people to teach you how to be around when pirates are in the area then me. You will see when my actual raiding ships are set up and I'll be trying to avoid having to speed up timers.  It also helps to teach players good habits in times of war where people don't care if the target is small and insignificant. These are all things the veterans learned long ago. Especially those of around since the early days.  The willing participants I am definitely giving wiggle room on targets though. The unwilling on the other hand they will just have to deal with the power constraints I am putting on myself.  

The NAP with SPQNR was a GC only agreement.  It was never agreed to beyond that.  We just never attacked one another after that because we had no real reason to. I returned because honestly I missed the people here and I missed how it was in the old days.  I tried returning once before and quickly got bored and quit.  So I decided if I was going to return and be able to keep myself entertained enough to stay. Fact is this is how I have the most fun with this game. Not playing useless politics.  I am very aware of how your power has grown and really I don't care. Attacking ships with higher power levels just results in absurd timers and AP used that really isn't worth it. A hit on one of my ships isn't real loss.  I don't have any holdings that really are at risk.  I came up with the games idea after I returned.  I thought it might be something everyone can have fun with and give less powerful captains an actual chance against those who could normally cream them.  I am interested to hear what the rest of your corp thinks. That said whether you like it or not, once I announce the games your corp is not exempt from this.  If you want to work on getting this thing organized with some rules I would be more then happy to discuss certain targets being exempt.  Also I am aware about ConPlays.  He earned that bounty so it's his problem to deal with.  I won't get in your way there.

You act like you like how things have stayed dull and unchanging. You are aware this is why so many leave the game right?  The game needs some serious growth and to get SirEmi to do that we need to get the player base active and show SirEmi there is some life left and that maybe he should put some real effort into the game.


I already knew not everyone would be like my idea. I figured some would want to wage complete war on me.  This will of course give me more to do so there is less boredom there.  Also had I stuck with my original plans everyone would be against me anyways.  I didn't care then and I don't care now.  I was actually thinking this could become a yearly thing. Maybe last a few months. Though in future War Games I think exemptions could be given to corps not looking to participate.  That said for the first War Games that will not be the case.  The people need this kick in the pants.

On another note I wish Raph was still around. I am sure he would have loved my idea.

He is. He's probably just ignoring you.

And yet the core is still there after all those years. Without taking, oh, say a 20,000h break. Sargas, Mata, Raph, Jack, and many in New Rome.




Anyway, if it's war you crave, go on and post the combat reports of how you took out SPQNR installations. Because we have 21 active captains, 20 of which were online since your claim. On top of those 21, we have three inactives at zero power. My guess is that if you did attack "us", it were (literally) powerless modules rusting in outer space. But you'd greatly fast-track Senate procedures if you had some evidence. 1

Your strawman, cupcake, YOU feed him. Nothing "dull and unchanging" about the Senate. Says a lot more about you and YOUR Corp than ours.

Welcome back, sweet cheeks. The over/under on your visit is weeks rather than months.

Look at how many have quit though too. People who started and became big before me. People that started later that used to be good and really active. Hell even Rostin is gone.  

As for the attack it looks like misread on the corp name. I was in a rush when I did it.  I just went and combed my logs. The labs I hit belonged to SEC.  I can't remember but was Dynastar ever a part of your Corp.  For some reason I thought he was but I have smoked a lot of weed since I quit.  lol.  I was wondering why I hadn't been contacted by you guys sooner over it. lol.  I didn't mean to make a false claim. I could have swore I got you guys somewhere though. lol. oh well.  Here is a copy of the report for your entertainment though. I wasted quite a bit of AP on this one.

Hi JJL,

You have not changed a bit: long texts, attacks of small captains in sol system... It seem to be your fun

All I can say is: have your fun.

In some ways I have. In the real world I am a bigger not a very nice person then I used to be.  If you recall outside of the game I was pretty nice. lol.

I wasn't referring to player growth in power.  I was talking about the game in general.  No recent updates since I left. Everyone playing politics and just doing COMs and mining. No real action. No excitement. Just pure boredom.   Since SirEmi isn't going to do something to give us more to do to keep us active it is us to do it.   To be honest I would love a huge overhaul to the combat mechanics and the timer system for combat either reduced or eliminated all together  Something to make more powerful ship combat to actually be able to mean something.  I would love to see some random alien invasions as well into the galaxy.  There is so much I would love to see and many players have had great ideas for things and they just get ignored,.
