    • Example of not learning the lesson...

      So, background first...

      Void is the player who used to be called Freedom. Freedom was (and like is still the same guy) a farmer who thought that having a lot of....uh..."friends" with small accounts could help him win the pirate game each period. That lasted until I decided to unretire Mobile Hell and camp out. Pillaged him for over 15 million before he went into a deep sleep mode.

      About a month ago he returns and I continued my pillages. He decided to build a fleet of about 45K General Score. I made sure that went away within a couple of days. He rebuilt, hid his ships (I pretty much let him) and he got up to about 60K GS (I'm was at about 68K, but mostly troops, not almost all navy like he has). So, finally he was "ready" to teach me a lesson. Lesson #1:

      As Void did not have any units left to hold on to the main battle line, the rest of the army has withdrawn.

      Void's army has been completely destroyed.

      OK, lesson learned: Void does't learn lessons....

      An erroneous conclusion on your part. To begin with, VOID is a top 10 account. The guy knows how to fight...my post was simply to poke a little fun @ him.

      Again, another erroneous conclusion. There are tons of people on this server who once were "my enemy" and I am now on good terms with. In most cases if you strike up a dialog with me and don't jump to conclusions (hint, hint), we end up getting along well.[/quote]

      I have no idea what you even mean by this..."doing up to the sky"...is that some sort of drug reference that I am not familiar with?

      Yes, I can see how good you are at making friends. The tone of your message was very much the kind of tone that makes someone want to be your friend. I always look for new friends who like to criticize me and feel they are morally superior to me. When can we set a coffee date so you can tell me how I cut my hair wrong and wear clothes that are out of style?

      Having a top 10 account does not mean that he knows how to battle.
      A very faulty conclusion.
