We reserve the right to remove any message board content without notice for any reason.


Rule 1: Responses to rule violations
Violating these rules will result in warnings, either formal or informal, suspensions, banning, or other sanctions.

Rule 2: Respect other users on the forums
- Do not make attacks or insult other users, either in the forums or through private messages. Disagreements and debates are fine, but don’t make it personal.
- Do not attack groups. This includes professions, races, religions, sexual orientations, genders, incomes, or even vague groups like “you people.”
- Do not use ill terms which are offensive to groups, do not “flame”, “troll.” or “haze”.

Rule 3: Respect the forum purpose and structure
- Make your posts in the appropriate forum.
- Please use the Search function. If a relevant thread already exists, please post there instead of creating a new thread about the same topic. Duplicate threads will be closed to keep the forums orderly and easy to navigate.

Rule 5: Respect the audience
Think about who you're talking to. Users may be as young as 13 on these message boards, and may be male or female, and from countries across the globe.

- Do not post Adult Material, inappropriate graphic sexual content in any format, or links to sexually explicit sites.
- Do not post graphic images or explicit descriptions of violent acts.

- Do not post private communication between customer support, members, moderators, or administrators on these forums, or anywhere else. (This include support ticket responses)

- Do not post Facebook information about other forum users.
- Do not post any private information about other users.
- Do not post in-game information in an attempt to have other players attack your target. Be careful to not cross the line into bullying.

Rule 7: Do not spam
- Do not post repeatedly about the same topic.
- Do not spam users on the forums or through private messages.
- Do not start a thread without actual purpose.
- Do not start a thread about a news story or article unless you make it clear what the story is about, and offer your own opinion to start a discussion.

Rule 8: Respect your account
- Do not share your account information with other individuals. You will be held responsible for any rules violations that occur under your account.
- Do not create new accounts or use other tricks to avoid suspensions or bans.
- Do not create ‘sock puppet’ accounts – multiple accounts created just so that you can agree with yourself and make it seem like your ideas have more support than they do.
- Never include your e-mail address or any other personal information in posts.

Rule 9: Respect the Moderators
- Do not post using the color red. This color is reserved for moderators.
- Do not impersonate moderators. Do not claim to speak for the moderators.

Rule 10: Respect the decisions of the moderators
- The moderation teams reserves the right to warn, suspend, or permanently ban users judged to be acting against the spirit of the rules, even if the user is following the letter of the rules.
- Do not argue with moderators about moderator decisions. You can disagree with a moderator’s opinions, just like any other poster, but when they post moderator actions in red text, it is considered final.
- Moderators have no access to your game account. If you have an issue you must contact customer service.

Generally, BE NICE. There is nothing wrong with being nice to each other.

  • It appears that there is LightningStrike and then there's everyone else

    175W - 0L (at the time of this posting) Summer 2016

    Really? Is LightningStrike that much better than every other empire?

    Are your wars over in minutes?
    Approximately how many actives are there each war?
    Is there any empire that is even coming close to beating LightningStrike?

    I'm both impressed with their superiority and fearful that there is no hope for the rest of us.

    Would like to hear from members of LightningStrike or any empire who has recently battled them.

    Thx

    We got them during the season start shuffle once.

    Match lasted a whole 6 minutes.

    They weren't always #1, they came straight out of nowhere and unseated the "establishment". They themselves proved that anyone can take #1 with determination and hard work.

              Yeah, not so hard when you have bought accounts and load at the same time, they will go down just like Chosen and RM.

                LS is fun We're not undefeated yet tho, 1.5 months to go. Getting #1 is hard, but the real work is keeping that top spot. Id appreciate a little more CC for our short wars (hint to Devs)

                  I think that's controllable by your team... if you dragged them out a little you would get more... Sorry not sorry good luck on your quest anyway.

                    Have you ever faced these guys? they show up at 60 people as soon as it starts... by the time I fire 1 token, they already have 30 points on the board.

                        Yeah faced numerous times (10-20 min average &#128516 Also faced other top teams that did a phenomenal job of making CC out of war they knew they would win... High levels using cripple on low health, traps spent on inactives, bull rush on single row target. It wouldn't be hard to stretch it even from 5-30 mins. There are a ton of skills you can use to extend wars regardless of class. Ghost/Sniper and Reaper don't have great options other than demo or hit low health targets.
                        Sniper has mark target 😂😂😂😂

                          Lol. They need to remove the skill and give people their cc back for it. It's a useless skill with the inception of shields or just make it bypass shields.

                          It's utterly useless when people shield 7 out of the 9 buildings and sins and reapers can see one of the others.

                          On topic, LS is that strong, Eve isn't very complicated, but when you stack that many top accounts in the same place it will remain the same.

                            The reason why they're called LightningStrike is because they beat everyone so fast

                              a few days ago we somehow got matched up with russian mafia, now I have no idea how that would ever come about because we struggle with actives alot of the time and are lucky on some wars if 5-10 of us even show up so was surprised to log on 5 mins after the war started to see the defeat logo showing up, in all my time playing the game we have never been beaten that quickly, usually some high end top empire have spanked us within 15 mins but not 5 lol.
