Rule 3: Respect the forum purpose and structure

- 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.

  • Ship Jumpers

    I'm slightly tempted to start a thread like this, But let's talk about something first.

    I'm sure Leaders and Officers (Mainly, Not excluding the grunts either here) notice that there are some players who love to jump from one empire to another on a seemingly daily basis. These kinds of guys can cause issues as 1) They could be passing along battle strategies, 2) Leaving an empire right before battle and possibly leaving a vulnerability in the defender placements, 3) They fact that a leader might kick a lower level or lesser active player to make room for a guy, Who turns around and burns him a day later.

    Now I'm not saying this is a regular occurrence or anything, But I'm sure it's happened to the best of us at one point or another. So what I was thinking (As I have taken to doing this privately with certain ally leaders) maybe there should be a thread for warnings about guys like this?

    Didn't wanna just jump into it naming names, Let's see what folks gotta say!

    I love the gif Robbie! I would say it MAYY not be the BEST idea to name names on the Forum...maybe the leaders could have their own discussion group about this or you could PM them and let them know of a possible flip flopper. Just a thought...calling people out on here may lead to more problems especially if they hear from their current leader that they were talked about on the forums by name. I'm just speakin up bitch...don't hate! Haha

      I agree, calling out names publicly would probly get ugly real quick, but a leader group is a great idea!

            Re: Ship Jumpers

            All i know is from Syndicate - had 10-15 people go UG first month, then another 5 the second month.
            This month we lost 3 to chaos and 3 more went to blues new guild.
            Fact is tho, its happens to everyone and we get new people all the time too, yes it sets us back each time but thats the nature of the beast! We have a pretty good core so we still havent yet fallen from legend since we arrived (but lately thats not saying much) -- its taken a toll tho as we used to beat everyone except The old UG and ES, now we have lost to probably the top 5 guilds at least once. Things are always moving tho, seems kinda like "flavor of thr month" sometimes but theres nothing ya can do about it. Everybody has own mind to do whatever and go anywhere they want. Just dont let it bother ya is my only advice!

              If you name names, you can trust I will delete them and edit your posts. As stated, such things get ugly quickly. I will not tolerate "he said she said" postings or lynch mob posts.

              Best thing to do in this case: Be careful who you let into your Empire.

              Glad we understand each other.

                      True Statement, Airmid. In this game, your best mate could even be a decietful spy for others ( PARANOIA IN EFFECT ). CA from my experience didnt create as much animousity and tasteless acts as UE seems to create, I can only hope it gets better

                        Re: Ship Jumpers

                        Robbie's complaint seems to be about the annoyance and inconvenience of players changing empires every few days, and potential spies. And I agree that is annoying.

                        There is absolutely nothing wrong with changing empires in general though, even every 1-2 months. From my viewpoint there are a lot of empires that condemn players that leave their empire, using terms like "traitor" and "loyalty", but with the other hand they welcome members from other empires happily and don't have a problem with their "disloyalty". Just my commentary on the subject.

                            It was found to be inappropriate for PG13 forums and was thus removed. Thank you.

                              A more appropriate solution would be to create a delay in when you can join another empire after you leave one.
