looking for some people from previous worlds

1) This is AGAIN between me and Maul. It was a troll joke bs thing to begin with. Not that he won't checkout (again, if I'm wrong, I'll send him some resources as promised) anyways though. But "who I am" has nothing to do with anything. Be happy with me being Sunvaar here. What if I'm in YG? Plan on getting me booted simply because you don't like that I'm trash talking someone which has no affect on you? Do you also believe socialism will work?? "Being a man" has NOTHING to do with anything related to this game either. And considering your age, you wouldn't even have the first clue to begin with....

For another troll, did you name yourself "datepalm" because the only date you can get is with your palm??? Quite sad if so.. Maybe you should read a book or two on "how to not be an idiot and get a girl to like you".

2) What "old days" are you referring to? Did you arrive when Crimson Blue was the COMA? Before him, or after him? Then what worlds have you played? Any REAL vet knows what I'm talking about. Take away today's system of mass golding and mass events and 99.9% of all players that are good by today's standards are worthless scrubz. Put any of the old vet whom retired (like AD, The Berglemonster, Exit Strategy, White Khalifa, and and many more) into today's system and they'd win every world they touched within the first month by a landslide. Gold wasn't as big back then nor were events.

3) LOL good one. I've buried people far better than you with great ease dude. I wouldn't even bat an eye to you and still put you 6 feet under in this game. BUT, be happy that I'm only simming, BS-ing, and having fun by pissing off people like you and everyone else who got all butthurt because I decided to mess with Maul. At least he's smart enough to give the crap back and understand it's just bs talk.. But anyways, you're welcome to come hunt me too cowboy.


Now, can everyone quit crying already? We get it, your bum is hurt. Go get an ice pack and chill..

Why do you write an essay with each response? If you can't man up enough to tell us your name at least save us the trouble of not killing our brain cells on an attempt to read this garbage.

White's a good friend. Beat his butt too before he retired lol. But good kid. Great guy
I was never anyone of note back then, and not much of one now. Remember the old gold system though. Wish it was back to that. Made everything more of a challenge. Though it might have just been that I was really, really bad.

I would just like to remind the members using this thread that the following extract is taken from the Forum Rules -

Conversations, discussions and arguments between two people should be done in private. Please use the private message system in this forum or other applications (e.g. IRC, skype, …)

So I suggest that both Grepo Mauler and Sunvaar Se Toor (or should we just call you Jinzo) take your squabble elsewhere before more infraction points are handed out.

Lurks.

I have ZERO tolerance for MODs that abuse their power, bend/twist the rules, and hand out personal infractions/bans simply because they don't like someone. THAT is against the rules. Lurks has been a HUGE problem ever since he became a MOD, not just to me but to MANY people. He's been reported many many times as well for his antics.
Lurks has been pretty chill in the forums, think you might just be upset friend

old gold system? oh the lowering the time by 25 percent or something like that?
Ya, mostly just that. It made it much more difficult to build up early cities and such. I thought there was a little more to it, but I am probably wrong.

Also used to be no 25% reduction in building resource costs for gold, no gold trading, no starter's package. Believe times were halved not cut by 25%, either way still more costly than the current system.

50 gold reduced the construction time by half, 100 gold would reduce it by half again but I think I remember there was a cooldown between uses. There was a limit as to how many times you could reduce it based on the total length of time the construction was. What wasn't fair about the system was it cost the same to reduce time of a level 5 Academy as it was a level 25 Academy even though the 'amount of time reduced' was different. Yes, that made it difficult and expensive to gold up a small city as you were spending a lot of gold to reduce a small amount of time. The other thing I found not fair was the pricing system remained the same regardless of the world speed. Of course there was the argument it all washed out as the total construction times were different.

This is inaccurate in so many ways :p

You could use 50 gold to cut in half the remaining construction time. If you then wanted to cut it down further, it would cost another 50 gold. The number never increased. There was also no cooldown on how many times it could be used.

As a heavy golder, I quite liked the strategy that was involved in choosing when to cut in half a building time and when not to. This was especially prevalent during BP...golding certain buildings were better than others. Now days during BP us golders just buy everything, which is just a matter of clicking buttons. As to if it is more expensive or not with the current system depends on how much you golded. Using 50 gold on a level 24 senate was massive value...with the current system it would cost 5 times that to finish. But now it finishes instantly, which would have cost thousands of gold for a single building with the old system. It's just different, not necessarily cheaper or more expensive.

I did like that golding actually used to be a skill, as well as an expense.

The only think I was inaccurate about was the cost and I'm probably mistaken. But I do know there was a limit to where it wouldn't let you cut it in half. Not sure if it was the number of times you cut it, or if it was the amount of time remaining that couldn't be cut - but I sure recall the button being grayed out.
