Well, this definitely deserves a response now. The following is the perspective of a former member of AR, now member of Trinity.... happily fighting under any banner that will allow me the chance to continue fighting against the Matter alliances.
First let me say, it has truly been disgusting to have to listen to you continuing to spew your rhetoric for over a year now. Your alliance won this world by playing in a very underhanded way..... lying to and eventually turning on allies (almost all other alliances in the original coalition against The Hive, which of course you were a member of), planting spies that were not just ordinary spies but literally acted as our best friends and were made leaders of our alliance (Bellos of course most readily comes to mind), turning our partner alliances against us at the last moment before wonders began by assuring them that they couldn't win with us (The Saints, and of course this wasn't really true until you actually convinced them to switch sides, completely turning the tide against us), promised your partner alliance (The Elder Gods) the 4 wonder win if you could take the 7 wonder crown and then yanking it out from under them at the last moment (causing them to turn against you, though you still smooth talked them into letting you finish out your wonders in exchange for being allowed to partake in the 7 wonder crown). The list just goes on and on. You won by lying to people, cheating your way out of your promises, and just playing dirty.... very dirty. As you have correctly pointed out previously, everything (well, most everything) that you did was considered legal within the rules of Grepolis and therefore was technically allowed, but nobody on this server, not even your own allies have any respect for you whatsoever. Everyone else despises you now for how you have all behaved.
You said we should go win our crown on another server. Well guess what? Foos and I, along with many of the rest of us just did. We were the dominant alliance on that server, just as you turned out to be here. We swept the 7 wonders to level 10 without our enemy even getting a single wonder, just like you did here. But there was a huge difference..... we did so respectfully. We played fair, were generally respectful to our enemy, and even opened a shared forum tab with them now to discuss our opinions on that server, possibly joining another world on the same side together if they wish, things like this. It is civil - and in a word, respectful. This is because we won fair and square. We simply outplayed them, and will now shake hands and walk away. That's the difference between that world and this one. You back-stabbed your way to the top here, and again, everyone else on this server despises you for it. And that.... that is the reason why this world is still open. It makes no difference that you won with 4 wonders. It makes no difference that you have the 7 wonder crown. You have made such passionate enemies that everyone wants to knock you off your high horse and stuck around just to do so.
And guess what? In a few hours, we now will. We have op'd your last level 10 wonder island, taken a city and crumbled your last level 10 wonder to 9. And as soon as our build completes, we will also have the crown. But do you want to know what? For so many of us, this crown is not about having a crown. You are so fast to call us cowards for pursuing the crown here after your won yours because someone as dirty and corrupt as yourself doesn't understand the value of what we are doing. We are not trying to weasel our way into an easy crown. One of the bigger reasons we chose to stay in this world is we wish to cheapen the crowns that you won.
You say this world is over because your side won the crown first and it should be over. Guess what buddy.... that's not how this game is played! You love to justify your cheap actions by stating they fall under the rules. Well guess what? This falls under the rules too! And using those rules, we are now going to do the only thing that is appropriate to do in a world where the alliance that won has acted as cheaply as you have. We will ensure your enemy has the crown as well. Essentially, now the crowns all of you have mean nothing more than the crowns we have. If your enemy has them too, what special significance do yours have? Oh sure, the few of you that actually got the 4 wonder crown have something your borderline behavior got you..... but the rest of you are now no better than any of the rest of us.
You know the funny thing is, you could have prevented this, but you didn't even bother. I mean really, how many of you just stuck around here, logging in regularly so you didn't ghost, as if only to give us the opportunity to do this. If most of you would have just ghosted out of this world, you would have prevented us from winning these crowns. But no, as you stated above, there are lots of you who want to continue getting personal achievements and seeing how big you can get. In a word, you have all continued to be greedy, selfish and act with no regard for others, even within your own alliance. And guess what? It has now cost you the meaning of your crowns. I can't help but say that really does provide a large measure of satisfaction for us..... absolutely poetic justice. You can whine and complain all day long about how we got these crowns, that it isn't fair, that the world should have closed, that you weren't really playing anymore so it doesn't really count...... but if you weren't really playing anymore, why are there over a hundred of you still active in this world until very recently, and even now still very close to that many left. You can say you were inactive all you want, but if you really were, all but a few of you (those on your wonder islands holding those cities fast) would have ghosted and caused the world to close before we could have even come close to building up our wonders. You knew the rules, you knew that we could take those wonders from you, and you chose to just roll over and give them to us. Don't get me wrong, there was some resistance, but it was pretty pathetic.
In the end, I have one crown from being a member of the dominant alliance on a server, and I will now have this one as well, and you know what? This one is WAY more meaningful to me, because this one isn't about being the winner. This one is far more important. This one is about showing you that you are no better than we are, and that playing dirty didn't really get you anything after all. Maybe in the future, you will think about the way you treat everyone else instead of being so self-important and stopping at nothing to win. Sometimes, that kind of behavior has a way of coming around and biting you.
EDIT: I just have to say one more thing..... I have so much respect for all of my old friends in AR and all of my new brothers and sisters in Trinity. This group of individuals persevered through all the psychological warfare waged against us, all the attempts to break our spirit and destroy our morale. I have never met such a dedicated group of individuals and would just like to say to all of you, that you have my love, my respect, and if at any time you need it, my support. Guys, seriously, thank you all for being the great, upstanding individuals you all are and for keeping our alliances honest and decent, even when it meant keeping us from being first to the crown. In the end, those of us with the fortitude to stick this thing out are getting what we deserve.
