You weren't part of the original stronghold.

Original as in BOB in Beta. and yes I was.

Beta was my first server. Most guilds were not stronghold yet at that point.

In my experience (Beta, Epsilon, Fenix, currently Centauri) Strongholds have been terrible, every guild is like HEY NEW GALAXY/SERVER! everyone immediatly go there upon its opening. and either your guild fails or succeeds. if it fails you do it again for the next new one. if you succeed. Its a race to be the best in the guild and you fight over targets in the galaxy or take forever sending fleet to another galaxy. OR there is failure and you all deal with it and combat the other players which is yes funner however one guild will eventually develop it and be a mass conglomerate and it will be there stronghold where you are then perma farmed no matter how good you are. You can have more fleet, research, defense, etc etc than any other player in the galaxy and they will all tag team you and force you to join them or quit. This is how I was impressed into [GOON] in the height of epsilon. Don't get me wrong I love [GOON] but it made the game annoying and if I weren't as stubborn as i am i would have quit.

Guilds should be limited as to how many players they can have in each galaxy and each server! This will inspire more pick and choose for who is in the guild, you would have to fight to better your account and your scores for the right to be in your guild. It would also increase politics such as pacts player to player, player to guild, guild to guild. it would encourage training guilds, sister guilds, etc etc. making the game much more interesting in general

Actually Maui was a stronghold guild in b10 before bob and we actually did it quite well for a small guild, even defeating s3d who had three times the total fleet at one point and getting them to surrender to us on forums.

We took it a step further in ceti though with HeiHo and moved from a single galaxy to a cluster (00-09) and eventually a server.

I remember HeiHo those was good times.. :)

Appealing to reason with "good" people is mostly wasted time.... they will not improve themselves, but love to improve all other.

You will be called a farm....you will receive pms of the stronghold guilds to join them or be farmed (still waiting for it to happen after many years and 21 servers :))

In short loads of fun :)

The responses we will get on this will be SOOO much fun too...:)

A competent player would create a stronghold.

Are you sure you have that one right this time? You seemed to confuse Spain for Portugal last time, so anything is possible.


DS, don't bother with the troll. He isn't even a very good one.


I honestly believe he isn't actually trolling, just that inept.

Both, depending on what the other guilds in the galaxy were like.

stronghold is just a strategy....

ASAE is many times called out as being poor players and farms for not folowing the strategy,

you have a choise....

join your local bullying stronghold or play the server with ASAE...

its a matter of numbers....if you outnumber them they cant do a thing.

well proven by now....even to the most hardcore oposers.
