The Monks Celebrates!
06:00:45 May 1st 07 - Mr. Fra Darwinius:

It is end of era and the Monks celebrate (of course with tons of wine!!!!)

This was our 3rd era and i wanted to thank the whole team for the great job done altogether. We will probably have a winner coming from The Monks this era (if things stay the same till the end), but beyond that i think we demonstrated to be a good KD, given the fact this is just our 3rd era and many of our players are relatively "inexperienced" in comparison to the average Fantasia player.

So, here is our "dream team":)......

Androgeos

Darkfaith

Sonka

Anderson

Woopie

CrissCross

Frag

Excelsior Gliendel Calahan

Jamkel IX

Darius

Knw

Hanky Panky

Yorimm

Murtagah

Zithius II

Kyske

Bobson

God

Thor

Maynard

Danutz

Warlo

Newport

Fra Darwinius

Next era some will leave, some will stay, others will just not be active as this era. The Monks will be weaker or stronger....but for sure we will have some fun! No matter what.....I would like to publicly thank all of you for the wonderful job done this era!!!!................hic!!

Cheers!

lol i loved it bak in ya kd


12:50:49 May 1st 07 - Mr. Woopie:

It was a great era!!

Thanx fra =D you did a great leadership


13:14:13 May 1st 07 - Mr. Hungrier Horse:

I don't quite see why you made a thread to be honest. All it will induce is criticism. Most KD's celebrate, but there's little need to make a public thread over it, especially when others are sure to cast doubts over your "success" and how you "achieved" it.


14:06:44 May 1st 07 - Mr. Adelbert:

Stop arma, and continue the fighting!
Mirror were not finished and we hunger for revenge.
:D :p


14:38:12 May 1st 07 - Duke Efrandor:

Ther way I see it, he isn't making fun of "special" people, he is making fun of Fra and Baccus, and he succeds with doing so in a very good way, it's a joke and it's supposed to be funny, and it is, congratulations EW.

It's a joke, take it as a joke, it's not meant to do any harm.


14:45:04 May 1st 07 - Sir Fizban:

Wow, it's like watching a daisy chain... except with guys....and it's not very exciting.... are you all done yet?


16:25:09 May 1st 07 - Mr. Fra Darwinius:

Well,

I am sorry if you guys take it so badly. Anyway, this is a free game. You can say whatever you want.

The public forum is to reward my KD of the good work. If you dont agree...please simply dont post here. Thanks,


16:45:34 May 1st 07 - Ms. Quietone:

you should reward the other kds who fought all era and allowed you the comfort of sneaking in and stealing the top spot you didnt earn

I say we should be celebrating Legacy for having fought over 90% of Fantasia oh....but you're right it is a free game you can say whatever you want :)


16:50:59 May 1st 07 - Mr. Roxbury:

This is an interesting thread. Fra Darwinius can you elaborate on this "good work" your kingdom has done?


17:04:33 May 1st 07 - Mr. Morgan:

Rox i think he means the killing of Mirror and casting of arma.

Go Fras dream team!


17:11:44 May 1st 07 - Mr. Kassius Xviii:

ah i rember wen i was in da drunk monks u guys r class :P


17:16:48 May 1st 07 - Mr. Stormcrow:

Sorry but imo dont see the point of this thread. How many eras have we seen legacy win (like a billion) but yet have never posted something like this self-congratulatory "pat on the back"? No offense intended, just pointing out the obvious.....


17:24:55 May 1st 07 - Sir Falazar:

Good Job Monks!


18:19:30 May 1st 07 - Mr. Andrei The Mad Farmer:

This is an interesting thread. Fra Darwinius can you elaborate on this "good work" your kingdom has done?

I will reply to this (hoping that it was not a "flamatory" posting:)) with the following:

- KD is  JUST 3 eras old.

- Always respect our agreements (no breaks no unhonorable actions)

- The average experience of our players is 3-5 eras

- In the last 3 eras we grew without disruption (we were 10 at the beginning, probably less......and we wont to about 24-25 in an ordered manner)

-  Contrary to what "some sour folks" might want convey to the rest of the Vu community, we did not have 1 day without war since we started.....and we warred much more expereinced KDs....since era 1 and we even had some good victories: Abydos, Mirror, Girls...and we had some good battles fought with Legacy players in all 3 eras.

- This era we had the chance to even cast Arma and obtain some good top ten placements. We have been fighting Mirror and then Legacy since the beginning.

- Our members did not get bogged down in stupid flaming threads and did not cheat or exploited any features of the game. We have an Honor code at the core of our KD charter. 

************************************************************

The above said, I dont understand this aggression from Legacy players and not just them.....I find this offensive. I don't understand how Carnage and Abydos can post hostile things against us....we kept our agreements 100%...you guys subscribed them and attacked Legacy at your own will and when you wanted. 

One thing I wanna say: you guys should not underestimate the number and size of armies from Legacy we kept engaged till the end. To say that we sat back and explored....from you guys...it is a bit surprising to me....but hey...the game is free and everybody can say whatever:)....I just hope in fairness and education. 


18:35:06 May 1st 07 - Lord Osiris:

please your "victory" over us was total bs :P you attacked us while we were in a war with Fords kd yeah right take a kd your size 1 on 1 and we will see what you have.


18:35:41 May 1st 07 - Mr. Stormcrow:

@Fra: No....tell us how you REALLY feel:P

 

For the record, my own post wasnt hostile. There are some very good players in bacchus (special props to Mensies;) I was just pointing out that this thread was a little too self-serving was all;)

Hey genius, let's think about it.

Whole Era exploring = able to generate alot of money as well as having lost little to no troops that you have built. Therefore you can probably throw up plenty of defense by the time we get down there, and of course everyone else on the map is keeping us busy (where were you all in the initial surge again?) you all whored ftw.

Shush up, any pack of new players can do what your 'dream team' did.


19:40:57 May 1st 07 - Mr. EW Its Crusty:

I think, Fra, that you are well and truly overrating your own achievements.

Sure you have done well to get your player to number one, but anyone can do that. The LGC players in the top 10 have been fighting the whole era and not whoring like your player, who we have only seen big armies from in the past week or two.

Also to say that your second biggest fight this age has been against LGC (after mirror) is a cop out. If i was to ask LGC members who they have fought this age in order of strength and threat to our core, there would be at least 4 kingdoms above Baccus.


19:45:35 May 1st 07 - Mr. Woopie:

19:49:34 May 1st 07 - Mr. Half Baked:

3 eras my ass, You were the KD of Pirates before Monks.

The amount of armies from lgc you help up, what all 4 of them, haha. You are being way to high on yourself.


19:49:53 May 1st 07 - Mr. Androgeos:

I saw almost the same thing happen last era when I was in V.
Flaming and sore losers.

I have been a winner the last two eras, both as Vendetta's vice and as Baccus Monks' vice. Yes I was the winner of the last two eras! Not because of HoH, but because I had loads of fun!

Don't ever forget that it's a game of strategy, diplomacy and economy as well as war, so please stop seeing this one-sided as a war game. We took advantage of anything we could, of the Abydos-LGC war and any other war LGC had, that's part of the game, too. We explored, well, that's part of the game, too. We had an excellent diplomacy, that's also a part of the game.

If the defination of fun for anyone of you is to go out and kill other players, please go play a CS or something or ask zeta to make a sudden-death arena and let us play our strategy.

So, since I'll step back for an era, I want to thank everybody :
1) All of you for the fun I had, in any Kd that you play.
2) All members of the Monks.
3) All members of my subteam, who were strong as a fist
4) The other kd vices for the cooperation and
5) FRA, for an excellent application of the Kd strategy we all planned together.

That's the bottomline, my friends, to have fun.
Thank you all!
:-)

20:05:47 May 1st 07 - Lord Oya:

It's funny surely you baccus players should atleast thank the other kingdoms to?

Lgc (the real winners and not being "total" bad sports about it hehe)

us for not attacking you when we were about to (so should have done that looking back)

Mirror for giving you your boost in income

FF for doing the same as mirror



20:09:11 May 1st 07 - Lord Senturu:

how come i wasnt invited to the party?


20:10:39 May 1st 07 - Mr. Hungrier Horse:

Suggesting that this isn't a war game is stupendously stupid. The entire game is geared towards warring, practically all the features are used in conjuction with maging or attacking. This is the same as most other online games -- take Runescape for example (I use this, as I'm sure most of us played it at one point or another when we were younger, so it's a game we have in common for an example), the ability to go for "economy" and pump ranks/stats (eco, in VU's case) is there, but the emphasis of the game is to fight each other, and other NPCs. Not to sit back, explore, then pat yourself on the back when you've made little to no achievement. If VU were to remove the ability to attack one another, then the game would die, simply because it is the crux of the game. The "whoring game" is a game us old timers have long attempted to steer from, it is boring, it takes no skill what so ever and it forces the game into stagnation. If other kds followed your example this era, you wouldn't have ranked so highly. But thankfully other kds didn't do that, kds like Abydos fought hard and you overtook them by whoring, so they deserve more praise than you.

There are no sore losers, because we realise that essentially, BACCUS' claim for the top spot is a hollow one. They have done nothing to achieve it, and its remarkable how they go on and on about how they fought Mirror and Legacy, but "didn't explore" to rank so high. Let's put it into context then -- all those KDs LGC beat up north, and all their economies that we gained that were spread across the north of the map -- that contributed to our score and size massively. BACCUS didn't take any of LGC's core, and the only other KD they fought was Mirror, early in the era, which would of contributed to their late game score minimally. But still, BACCUS was able to rival LGC on the overall NW towards the end.

So the conclusion? BACCUS whored. There's nothing worth congratulating there, Fra. Have some humility instead of attempting to brag over worthless actions.


20:13:23 May 1st 07 - Mr. Androgeos:

Duke Sobek finds the target, Androgeos is poured all over with cement and then he congratulates Sobek for winning this era as a player who had fun :-P


20:17:27 May 1st 07 - Lord Senturu:

*applauds Hungrier horse*

i play Runescape too :P


20:21:58 May 1st 07 - Ms. Lewatha:

I think you're all being little children! Diplomatics are a part of the game and even though it isn't as heroic as Legacy. Baccus monks have earned their first spot. You should be congratulating instead of flaming.

 

Congrats to all of the baccus monks ;)


20:23:14 May 1st 07 - Mr. Androgeos:

Sorry HH, I'll rephrase one of the things you said above :

If VU were to remove the ability to attack one another, then the game would die, simply because most players are war-hungry teenagers.

That's more correct in my personal opinion. The game (and any game) is what you make of it. If you say it's war-oriented, why does economy count so heavy on the scores?

Personally, I don't care about getting congratulations or anything. I'm happy because I played the game the way **I** liked it and I had fun.

Who knows, maybe I and some more older players can turn this game into a whoring game....  :-P


20:28:04 May 1st 07 - Sir Fizban:

Alright, then we go back to the age-old argument that the scoring system is screwed up. The land being one of the key (if not 'the' key to  powerful ruler) is the assumption that whoever has the most land has been fighting the hardest, however this also allows the whores to pump themselves to victory.


20:29:43 May 1st 07 - Mr. Hungrier Horse:

Why does economy count so heavily on the scores? ZeTa isn't infallible here, Andro. The system isn't perfect yet. A few rounds back it was heavily shifted towards attacking for the end scores -- in particular, experience from armies. As experience was easily available (especially before the pre-nerf halfing adventurer), scores were heavily inflated and not representative of the true hohs. You could easily make the same argument about "experience weight" back then, but it essentially boils down to this: the end scores aren't perfected yet to be truelly representative, hence the disagreements here, especially over Fra's empty-bragging.

Obviously the end scores need reworking (as does arma freezing, all that leads to is planned-round winners)


20:43:15 May 1st 07 - Mr. EW Its Crusty:

The scores do not show who the best players are, thus any bragging on the part of Monks is dumb.


20:58:42 May 1st 07 - Mr. Androgeos:

I agree to HH and EW about the scores up to a point.
My objection is that this game is a dynamic system, with new players coming in and out all the time. That's what I meant before with my joke about turning the game into a whoring-oriented one.
 
New players like me could come, who wouldn't appreciate pure war as much as the right strategy and diplomacy.

So, the scores can never be finalized the way you may think about, satisfying the majority of the players, because the tides could go the other way after a few eras.


21:24:53 May 1st 07 - Mr. Twamao:

whoah whoah whoah! Stop there!  You dare mention Girls as one of your good victories??  cmon man, 6 vs 20+++  WOWOWEEEE!!!!

In behalf of the Spice Girls: Fordius, Frederick, Adelbert, Azaruc, Drenth and of course, me, the Plastic Surgeon. 

CONGRATULATIONS!
FOR A HARD EARNED VICTORY

I like the monks and all, but I agree with these statements. I've never seen Legacy congratulate themselves, and this era they fought almost every Kingdom.

Actually if you read thru my post, I am not specifically talking about this era. I am congratulating my mates for the past 3 eras overall.

Legacy has been in VU forever....and they might have a different approach. What's wrong with ours?

Legacy is used to winning.  They celebrate by dressing up in their tuxes and sipping their tea while making light conversation, concluding the meeting with little stories about the mere little annoyances called Abydos and Baccus they had to fight.

That's the problem. Abydos we have no problem with. They did something this era. Aside from casting arma, Baccus wasn't the least bit annoying. Rushing Mirror near the start of era, whoring, then casting arma for the win...

Then where's the massive loads of Legacy members patting themselves on the back then Fra? I've never seen it (even when I wasn't in Lgc), so it hasn't happened 'in all eras'.

Actually this is crazy. "Massive loads"?...just 3 of our memebrs posted in this thread.

Also, all this criticism about casting arma....I dont understand as well. I was told more than one time that this is the game and whoever wanna stop arma should just go and stop it...that's the game.

So...if Legacy did not have even the minimum problems from Baccus...welll, it should have been pretty easy for you guys to come and stop it?

About the whorring thing: I personally did not whore at all this era. This is my first Dwarf era and before saying that we are explorers...you guys (in particular legacy) should look at who your HoH players are:

ALL OF THEM, I bet are DWARVES! And it has been the same for the last couple of eras.............so about the whorring thing:)...please avoid BS.

****************************************************

Now, if you wanna to suggest something for the game, I am the first one to support it:

1- NO arma

2- Rankings based on battle won and size of armies defeated

3- Dwarves weakened

4-...whatever.............you want

 

............BUt given the current  conditions of the game......we won this era as Legacy won eras in the past. Did we win the way Legacy likes or whoever else like?

I dont care! The only thing I can ensure is that we did NOT cheat or exploit any bug and we RESPECTED ALL our agreements. full stop!

So Baccus, you EARNED it. Congratulations guys and especially to Fra with whom i hope to see in my dungeon of spank-love(yeh u like it babeh).
