I find that extremely interesting because of the power vacuum effect described by William Golding. Typically when a tyrant loses power, it opens a vacuum in which another tyrant essentially perpetuates the same problems as their predecessors. For example, Iran has had dozens of revolutions led primarily by the people, but you can count on one hand the number of just leaders they’ve had in the last two millennia.

Even so, I just found myself curious why people would come after the old heads and gentlemen of the game. They’re typically the nicest diplomacy cats so I got curious and didn’t see anything on the forums so why not ask publicly? So what gives?

I’m sure it’s probably some LaF hunting going on, but figured I’d ask on behalf of some old friends and allies. Typically if diplomacy broke down with Monsters, you never tried diplomacy. It’s sort of the opposite argument than LaF being terrible at it. Typically they’re very good at it and solutions to problems are very very easy.

I’ll be the first to say bullying people without any attempts at diplomacy would more or less make you guys hypocrites in sermonizing tolerance while skimming for a ministry to pretzel. My feelings unabashed.

You shut your mouth. You always want to net.

Who do you think is going to waste his turns to kill your suiciders so you can keep netting?

Ain’t gonna be you so be greatful to your protecters you lame bot farming adult…

Also it’s been beat like a dead horse. Laf has chased more players and been the most damaging to this game than any other players and groups combined

Following set LaF suicides Evo

Following set some LaF guys tag Evo and jump tag to finish as LaF.

This set no LaF tag. So they play in Evo while they wait for end of set to tag jump to LaF tag to bring glorious glory to LaF and another #1 victory.

Did I get the events correctly?

Who all is playing in Evo that is LaF?

You were LaF once SF...... and where are you?
He isn't jumping back to an LaF.
This is the last person to do that.


En4cer & Cordy, who else is there with you Galleri?

I was also RED and Evo for a long time. I ain’t get an invite to this reunion set. Just saying lol

Btw no one has the right to attack my character when it comes to Evo. As a player who tags with Mercs most sets I have devoted plenty of turns, time and resources to protect the interests of Evo. So if anyone thinks that I am against Evo, you are wrong.

I stand with Evo and I send them my thoughts and prayers until I am told to send some thing else in their defense…..

I am just scratching my head is all. Especially with certain folks who are mad / disappointed at Cath for his actions currently as these Evo guys were very “upset” at LaF players not long ago lol


We all play in evo. Evo is the new LaF. Dont listen to other people lying to you.

This round currently has dozens of untagged players. Actually the most untaggeds in many years.

That means that the entire LaF suicide squad is out now, Hiding in the shadows like venomous LaF snakes waiting to strike. You all thought that taking eestats down would make tracking your suicider asses harder but it hasn’t. It only made express and primary harder but Little Italy graciously solved that issue.

For whatever reason, the game allowed both Sol and Mercs to attack LaF in under 48 hours. Call it getting mehul’d for all I care now considering you guys were all jumping tag during that time period, introducing all sorts of new variables.

Perhaps the LaFer who created the LaF tag jumped to a new tag and it messed with the timer?

I agree but its the same for everyone. SoL, Mercs, SoF and everyone else would be nothing without their allies.

I think that's essentially the difference between me and a former RD color, and I don't say that to denigrate what a great player and overall human being you are, gains. You know I liked talking to you before you became miserable every time we spoke, but perhaps I'm the only one viewing that as a loss of a friend.

I'd like folks to have access to all the same information as me, be placed at a level playing field as me and for me to still win on the markets and place higher than them. I will happily share my turn by turn strat to make 80m on teams (hybrid) or 5b on FFA (tech transfers) gladly. And I was the first netter to share hybrid destock which netters kept secret with the community for actual years. I don't think secrets benefit anyone, and I like a good level playing field.

Caps lock yelling at me that I have the ability to test whatever you're doing to exploit the standing order system, does not encourage me to test whatever you're doing to exploit the standing order system, rather, further validates that the integrity of what was posted about how it works is bullfluff, and that people with access to the code knows how it actually works.

If I win a server using methods that aren't public knowledge, I work to remedy that for the good of the game, the community and for parity in competition. You, on the other hand, desire most of all winning, and will do anything including killing my tags over the years with bots to do so. We're very different that way.


I think you forget that each alliance in the game has its own database of information that is exclusive to their members. Why would they share that information and why do you feel entitled to get that information that someone have spent hours or 100s of hours to find out?
Over the years i have played in a lot of alliances and gaining access to different strats and formula collections. For example i joined The Omega to learn how to be a better netter. They had some excellent TTRs that i could learn from. I joined SoF to learn how to be better at warring and learn how to lead warchats more efficient.

If you want access to information that an alliance have gathered maybe you should join that alliance and maybe contribute in some way to its success as thanks for that information instead of demanding that people should post their findings in public?

There is no exploiting or cheating being done. Noone has access to the code besides the admins, you are just making fluff up again. You guys just tell yourself the same bullfluff until you believe it.

I have never cared of winning, over the years i have always been the first to pay reps for other peoples mistakes. I was not in RD when your alliance was botted so you cant blame that on me. You started warring my tag and only stopped when we won over you repeatedly.

This is the last from me in this thread, i dont have to answer to your toxic behaviour, go fluff yourself.

I've unearthed what I assume is about 90% of LaF secrets about math they were given inside info on, and posted it all in an effort to increase parity. Unfortunately never learned what bug they exploit on essos tho, and it's been around forever. That particular exploit they hold tight to the chest, I'm assuming because it is an actual exploit and they'd get deleted for exploiting bugs if it came out what they do.

Been wrong before, but this one has always looked and smelled like fluff.

I've gotten close to understanding that it has SOMETHING to do with minimum sell prices where the market auto buys and back ended essos, but it's clearly a bug getting exploited they don't want changed because it's how they pump the dons.


Derrick, maybe you should go create 16 countries in FFA and find out this so called bug and report it instead of making accusations without proof? Its the second time you slow fluffs make fluff up without having anything as proof.

It maybe just is so that some people are just that awesome at the game?

IMO


So maybe a better way to go about this would be to create a GDI netting server and keep the original alliance the way it is. That seems like it’s closer to something everyone agree on. But then the netters will be upset their scores aren’t considered real but they aren’t real scores if you are hiding so it’s a fair point as well to say those scores deserve to be on the n00b server if they can’t hang on this server.


Handicapping the server so they can win is a very fair point to argue is favoritism



That’s what some of the guys are saying. LAF should just have their own server if all they want to do is grab bots. They are currently and literarily the only clan that can’t survive outside of clanGDI, that’s due to them committing diplomatic suicide, forum trash talk, and then losing 6 countries to kill 1 Superfly. They said they attacked EVO because of… FAs? but we have screenshots of Gains saying they did it because of Requiem/Microtek. They will never admit otherwise though, but we all know the truth.

I think there should be a cost associated with entering clanGDI. Someone not in that clangdi bears the brunt of all of the risks, and should be rewarded appropriately. Half of the bots should be tagged up and clangdi folks can’t hit them, only non GDI folks can. There should also be a financial cost to it, removing risks should cost something.

Then there’s also the unintended consequences of griefers having less targets to exert their gameplay, instead of being able to attack any clan, they’re just limited to non-GDI players. Keep in mind that the majority of the recent griefers are a product of LAF by the way, like Rokkie. ClanGDI should pay a tax to non-gdi players for increasing the risks to them.


We killed Evo cause of the FA they sent.
https://i.imgur.com/EFib1a6.png they had pacts with both mercs and sol so they were not just "paying reps" to mercs.
We didnt pact Evo for the reason you said.
