S2 pointless?????
« on: April 11, 2012, 08:11:55 PM »

I'm not on S3 but understand it's a busted flush!  Is S2 going the same way?

The top 2 are head and shoulders above the rest, even amalgamations won't help 3-10!  And everybody's so dam chummy its like NAPs 'R' Us

So I'm weighing up my alliance options, I like to be part of co-ordinated action that takes some skill and co-operation to achieve good effects, but as the only wars of late have been more like a 'fly swatting' exercise by the big 2 I'm wondering what's the point.

That's NOT an invitation to come farm me!  I'm still active and building up but question to what end!  Trust me if I go I'll rename my cities 'old McDonnalds' (and KFC lol) and you can fill your boots!

Basically what I'm asking of the alliances is 'what's your plans'?
I want to join but who and why, go on, convince me  :o :o :o

Why do you think 90% of all the experienced guys quit s2 within the first 2 months?

This will be the longest server ever, with no alliance winners, lol

alliance 1:"you build a spaceship my friend"
alliance 2:" no, its your turn, friend"
alliance 3: "friends do you want help with resources for your spaceships?"

alliance 1: "you take it friend"
alliance 2 " no, you take it friend"

and they all lived happily ever after...................

By the way... endgame on this S2 that was considered "pointless" was one of the best in MH history. There wasn't one alliance dominating the endgame - we had change of leader during the SS race.

yeah 200+ vs 60, and the 60 had twice the 200's offensive, i call bull**t on that one if you don't mind : ;D
i think it was a major fail, mostly because the 200 were so weak it was a miracle they won, but when they did, they won by sheer numbers, nothing more
the outcome of the endgame may have been pretty hard to predict because of that but the server itself was very lame because most of them were just simmers

I'm not supporting a lack of battling, but it's good to see a new way to win.  According to Killa there is only one way.

Yes, one alliance had numbers, the second one was more agressive. 2 different approaches to the game. It's nothing unusuall, because most servers end more or less like this. What was great about S2 is that both sides were more or less even when it comes to general alliance power. We had change of leader in Spaceship race, many Spaceships got destroyed (on both sides). It was a pleasure to watch it.

From my point of view it was far more interesting that endgames where I know who will win before we even release Portals.
