I'm not here to write paragraphs.

Not a lot of people, if any, still play. I myself log on about once every three months.
Consider scorched earth a success.


I am not particularly interested in piracy anymore. I have picked up some COMs and would much rather use my power running timers and collecting stations than tearing other players apart. I'm sure the remaining active players will agree.

LOEP can go use your botting bandwidth on some other more worthy activity than destroying AG. There's just no point anymore. I would be surprised if AG gained a single new, continuously active member in the past two years. Use your bandwidth to cure cancer, or model proteins, or design aircraft.

There should be no problem with 'balance' - I'm not even active that much anymore and am basically the only person in my corp to have logged in within the past year. No delusions of 'starting afresh'. Just giving AG the peaceful close it deserves, for as long as the ten or so of us bother logging in.

You always were the only one, with your million alts.  laugh

Scorched Earth could've easily been avoided: you should've given back everything you stole. Or SirEmi should've taken it back and returned it to SPQNR.
You were fortunate enough the Senate lacked the backbone to rubber-stamp the Scorched Earth policy. With just NoBrain and myself to execute it (and we don't need bots for that, believe you me), it still allows a limited number of people to enjoy playing the game, but until our original demands (as stated time and again, and summarised above) are met, the policy remains in place.

It was a matter of policy, not lack of backbone. I would have happily joined in all-out war against people who deserved it, but not against new players or people who hadn't done anything. I wanted to encourage new players, and focusing on attacking bad actors would have given us the the opportunity to nurture them.

As it is, we have ended up with the worst of everything. You (by which I mean not you personally) only attack new, innocent players and do your best (again not you personally) to piss off established players.

When would you have ever tolerated someone sneaking in to steal your coms? Or waiting for someone to fight the looter attack on their com then sneaking in to fight the destroy attack immediately after? Yet you (again not you personally) do this routinely. In fact, it happened three times this morning.
