2.6. Welcome to ex-ES
to Fury 2.6. :) It's good as always to see some new faces among the old
familiar ones. This is our seventh round as an alliance, sixth under
the Fury name, and this will be by far our best round yet.
A few points to mention as we get stuff underway:
1. You should have read The Plan last round, and you should be one of these races, accordingly:
Zallun - hunters, raiders
Sniv - hunters
Tamaran - pure cash traders only
Wraith - RCs only
you're not one of these few races for the role they are intended to be,
use your exploratory turns and restart. :P A good deal of our plans are
dependant on having the right people as the right races. Polloid, Kit,
Deriv, and Quelaar are not needed or wanted.
2. Regarding AP on the boards:
to our policies this round is a ban on any posting on the Alliance
Politics forum (on the TDZK webboards), period. Admittedly, this is
only relavent to a half dozen of you or so who do post on the boards
(including myself), but this is something we are taking fairly
By no posting, I mean NO POSTING at all. Not even to
respond to cheating accusations, blatant insults, or threads which
involve us. The reasons for this are fairly self explantory and mostly
stem from the fact that AP is a cesspool of ignorant, self-promoting
idiots and that I want to end any percieved association of us to it
AP has been consistantly used as rival alliance's
petty way of fighting on their own terms and we're not going to play
that game anymore.
3. Reminder on cash needed
accordance with The Plan, we are going to need to raise 700 billion
credits this round, and you are going to be a big part of it. Aside
from our dedicated cash traders and our money from raiding, we're going
to need contributions from everyone else.
Every little bit helps, and it's no surprise that the AA skyrockets when everyone is contributing even relatively small amounts.
4. Loyalty, teamwork, activity
say this every round, but with the goals we've laid out this round and
considering the situation we were in last round, this is truer and more
important than ever.
This is a team. Entirely individual play
has no place here. Not being able to look past old feuds, conflicts of
ego, rudeness and selfishness are the most destructive things that can
befall an alliance and are the only things which can seriously hurt us
an an alliance; we can't be beaten unless we rot from the inside.
stems from activity. Attitude stems from attitude. If you want to be in
a successful, active, friendly alliance, it starts with you. Rush to
pick up any slack instead of waiting for someone else to do it, and we
will have a better round than you can possibly imagine.
Should be it for now. Get doing what you need to be doing and have fun. :)
