out of boredom, i was looking at my past rounds.. i didnt know i was here since round 16.. and in round 28, i had a 100mil nw but was only ranked 9.. cant believe those days are so tough to get into the top..

In round 28 there were 417 players. Which is why you could rightly claim THAT is a different era. Since acres flow to the top it was much easier then to get to 50k or 60k acres and if you wanted you could get to 70k or sometimes 80k acres, which is more or less impossible these days.

Which is why the NW record on this server will never be beat unless someone cheats hard, a change is made that increases acreages or NWs, or the game somehow has a resurgence of players.

100m NW now is most certainly equivalent to at least 120m+ NW then.

This is why I play delayed a little bit. I can sit back and see what the demographics are going to look like and adjust if I need to even if it isn't the most efficient use of turns. It is better than playing a whole set against a lousy market.

Yeah I forgot myself. Anyway 2 casher wins the last 13 sets. Only techer and oiler has a worse record lately.

Here is the 3rd last casher win:
https://www.earthempires.com/primary/50/ranks

I'm not denying its a good strat, but either the market or the players or a combination thereof have rendered it kind of a lame duck the past two years.

The reason I played it last set was that I tend to always be grabbed by the in-crowd's friend so I can't get fat on this server without being targeted. A Rep casher can get higher NW/a than C/I, so if I'm to compete as a C/I I would have to be the fattest in the game, which means the court jesters will all destroy me with 1:1 grabs:retals lol.

Hmm, I know Hessman hit you last reset but since you chose Rep before that happened what are you referring to here? Ponti thinking he could outrun you is all I can think of, but he hit every player that wasn't allied with him during his run, including Delphinus, Serp, Relax, and so on.

Gerdler

Member

Jul 16th 2020, 14:39:29

Yeah and if I ran C/I last set that hit by Hessman and the other guy would have ended my chances for a win. Are you suggesting I was wrong because my prediction only came true once(out of one time)? In that case there are several more instances this has happened to me(and others) on Primary. If not Hessman its someone else.

--

I don't remember Ponti hitting all those people. Maybe you are confusing the sets. Either way thats not my point. Ponti didn't hit me because I was heading for the win, I was recovering from a war that set and was not in the competition no matter what happened. Anyone could have seen that. What he did was bet I cared more about my country than about retalling, alternatively he was misguided to think I couldn't retal and that he would somehow benefit from running up expenses with 80-100m turrets lol.
It was just a mistake that ruined a casher that could have gotten 140m+, since that was a much better casher market than last set and he was 52.4k acres 16 days from the end with low tech prices, low military prices and low bushel prices.

When I have a bad set like that I dont browse the scores list to see if theres someone I don't know/don't like that is having a good set so I can screw with them, is my point. I know I can and I know several of them both would have if they could and have done it in the past, to me. Maybe I don't think it's challenging enough, or Im trying to set a better example in the naive hope that some day someone will follow suit, maybe both. Or I just think its a really fluffty thing to do.

I'm simply interrogating the premise that your being specifically targeted by an "in-crowd" was reason to to pick casher last set. I'm wondering when (if ever) that happened here to you prior to your choosing Rep last round.

Ponti grabbed you because he thought he could escape a retal, and that's consistently been his play style. Here is where he did the same to Serp: https://www.eestats.com/primary/oldcountry/1937/53

I agree that it's fluffty to mess with a country just because you decide you don't want that person to win. Some random guy did it to me my first set back and I didn't enjoy it (https://www.eestats.com/primary/oldcountry/1897/83). I don't think that was an "in-crowd" scheme though. I don't like the sound of that! I always tell anyone toying with urges like that to forget about it.

I'll put some context in what Gerd claims, few sets before you came back LaF had couple sets worth of warring certain alliance, that certain alliance had couple members so upset that they started to hit known LaF members in solo servers, Gerd being a high level leader was a prime target.

I think the motivation may have changed thoughout the years. But what stays the same is that it keeps happening most sets when I have a country worth a damned. Cross server stuff may have played a role sometimes. But I think its more often something like 'Not going well this set so I will mess with the best country I can find that Im not friends with'.

This doesn't only happen to me. It's clear that it doesn't happen to everyone tho.
