Some valid points, but to me, the issue still is and always has been that the purpose of the server is to have smaller 5-man teams, not larger teams that span more than one tag. That was the differentiator here, at least for me.

If the standard for that is just because someone hasn't massively abused it recently, then that is the game developer(s) decision.

If I'm not mistaken, at one point there was discussion about removing the server completely from the game or changing it to something else.

Much better. I still don't see how this isn't a failed experiment and is nothing more than Alliance 2.0.

I've been here from the beginning so I have the same right to an opinion as you.

Prime seems to only have an issue with my statement about mods giving up, and I get that.

There were at one time many players who supported SOTS, many of them quit sadly.

I'll give you the benefit of being ignorant, but you can't see all of my past games. Only the games post-Slagpit change that opens up the profile after a set.

I played during the pivotal sets, the first few, and was discouraged after I realized it was Alliance 2.0.

So Getafix - what is your point? Quit being butt hurt I upset you in another thread.

Where is tella? It wasn't a slander on the mods but it is a fact they gave up on SOTS otherwise we would still have it.

And how active were you back then because I was :D

EDIT: my ultimate point still stands, this server is a failed experiment.

But I think you are mistaken if the argument you are trying to bring forward is people were as sensitive as they are now to a single LG. Not individual people but as a group.

Single grabs didn't bring out pitchforks. That is why we had retal boards and not just war boards!

That's a reasonable opinion. I would point out that I don't believe anyone is calling for more servers. Just change the mechanics of the game if that is what the community so desires.

The practice of allowing something, then saying it's not the right way to play when players are given the freedom to do so is a bit ironic to me.

Sure you're running low defense, but more than 1 grab and you're asking for trouble. On alliance it is somewhat different as kill runs are a likely response. Multi-tapping low D fatties doesn't "teach them a lesson", it just pisses people off, THEN the forums get heated. Dunno man, buy turrets, cuz these teachers are running amok. And please program the bots to retal, it's the only way to make it challenging. Bot farming while fishing for low DR gets tiresome, you can see why the natives are getting restless.


My context was the Alliance Server and I can say from experience even 1 LG is too many for many players.

1 LG even in earth2025 brought out some pitchforks.

We've always recognized individual NW leaders, even in the days when 'war-gain' was a thing. Nothing has changed there.

The problem with the current meta is that it is pretty boring and isolating. Players only attack bots who do nothing back. They don't carry any other military unit besides jets to min/max NW. The issue is that this is a multiplayer game, and everyone has the ability to attack each other; however, many of the players left do not want that. So they wan't the ability to attack other people but condemn people who do. It puts the players at odds with the game design, and that is not the user's fault.

If you want a PvE game, make a PvE game.

Being a Patron is the sign of an ultimate supporter.

It means, among many things, that you have given the game money that could have been used for a number of other things, including but not limited to the live party cam of SuperFly in his inflatable hot tub- every Monday, Wednesday, Friday from 9:35 pm to 11:02 pm.

I don't think paying would solve any accusation of bias. The only way to prevent that is to have a mod that is not a past or present player.

Prime no longer plays on most servers, wonder why he was asked to pick between playing or being in a position of power :D

It wasn't always allowed, and once upon a time Mods did fight to uphold it. In the end, they gave up, and this server has since been a failed experiment.

Welcome to Alliance 2.0.

The game allows open-world player vs. player interaction(s). There is no such thing as a griefer only a player of the game. If you do not like it, go complaint to have the war room turned off for all player vs. player interaction(s).

If enough of you complain surely something will be done to make this even more of a PvE game. You will eventually get what you want as the game dwindles down to under 100 players.

PDM 14
xMERCSx 13
Stones 12
SoF 9
Evo 8
MONSTERS 6
OMEGA 4
RAGE 3

BAYROCK 2

Even LaF is shrinking. Used Alliance server as an example as it is traditionally the more active server.

As long as the #warRoomButtons are not deleted, this game is an open-world MMORPG. It is up to each individual the MO of the game.

If I decide attacking players is my best option, that is the way.

Going renegade is your choice, but your buddies (mob) wanted a peace deal, and you were part of that. I guess that's for you and Mob to work out.

You have a grudge with SF, obviously, so I understand, but I think it is against the spirit of the peace agreement, no?
