2.5. Round intro
to see everyone here again. :) Due to the long downtime and rather
abrupt (and unannounced) starting date, it will probably be a few days
before our roster is in any form of order. We'll be missing a few good
members from last round, but hopefully we will fill their places with
A few things to go over, briefly.
roster needs rebuilding. Due to retirements, leavings, and the fact
that we've never really had a solid 60 players in the first place, we
have plenty of room that needs to be filled. If and when we start
adding new players to the roster, be sure to make them feel welcome.
Hazing is not only permitted, but is required. :P
2. Goals for the round:
five in kill rankings -- Our roots are as a hunting alliance, and we
will return to them. Kill anyone and anything. This will need a
dramatic leap up from our stats in previous rounds, but I'm confident
we can do it. If it moves, shoot it. :) If you are having trouble
finding stuff to kill and/or killing it, we will help you.
in raid rankings -- should be easily achievable with our active and
spontaneous raid team I outlined last round. Raiders will need to be
L20 before they can be shipped and raiding can begin.
competitive, and fun -- this is our fourth round as Fury, fifth as an
alliance. We've shown we can play with the best of them and established
ourselves as a serious force in the game. Our challenge now is to
silence any critics and prove that we can stand the test of time.
We will be allying with IGF again this round and will have official
relations up soon. Until then, don't shoot them. If you accidently DO
shoot one, blame it on Myre.
4. Item finding as we knew it has
been basically removed, which means that we will have to *gasp* get
back in the habit of trading/resourcing for our levels and money. This
also means that trading donations will be vitally important to our
ability to do stuff once again. Hopefully we'll have a supplemental
income coming in once the raiders are leveled and shipped up, but
regular donations will be needed regardless.
On the plus side, we will no longer see our enemies flying L300 ships around because their newbies spamclicked for them.
Forum posts should be divided roughly along the lines of F1 = important
TDZK/alliance information, and F2 = misc/everything else. To minimize
clutter, all the guides/tutorials/resources will be moved offsite and
will be heavily added to, hopefully soon.
6. We will not be
building another stronghold planet like last round. Also, the planet
name Asgard, in use since 2.1, will be discontinued and left to TDZK
legend. We will take and hold our traditional home of 23k, and IGF will
be raiding 11k.
I'm sure there's more, but that's all that comes to mind at the moment.
Looking forward to another fun round with you all!
