Is it worth returning to Alpha?

Postby Tomination » Thu 08 Mar, 2018 20:36

Hey,

I quit this game about 5 years ago, but I was thinking of rejoining. Is Alpha or the game any good these days and worth rejoining?

It doesn't look like it changed much (Features wise), but after such a long time I do remember how much fun this game was at times.

Thanks for your advice,
Tom

short answer: No

your guild (or you) dont have the time to rebuild a fleet worth a damn. You will forever be behind the 8-ball (figure of speech) as all the other innernet shut-in's have 16k-22k prod levels abd a 22nd planet. Nothing you could hope to accomplish within 18 months.

But if you're planning on taking over another mature account from someone who got tired of this shiite, then i guess you'll be ok...so long as they chose the correct fleet spec and bases for prod stats and you don't end up zero'ing out to avoid *beep* from the first paragraph above.

Truthfully, there's likely more entertainment for you trolloloing the forumtards.

I know you guys are not exactly pros, but if several of the X.ORG players could get to 18k prods within a year and a half then so can any new account that actually plays the game. I know that is a stretch of imagination for you but hey!

Please be respectful, us true internet shut ins had 16-22k levels 5+ years ago.

These days we're talking 28-34k levels to be a shut in.

Server average fleet is like 120mil. Thats a year prod on 15k cap, easily doable.
