. I would expect this kind of hit neither from destroyerx and his old friends nor xing xong and chimera in electra.
Hi Rec, long time since we last spoke, before I can comment on this hit, I want to point out a little bit of history that would make both my point and my reply on this hit make more sense. RecHit not sure if you saw but I did take out Miralay with a dirty hit at the end of my ogame career and as griever329 pointed out sometimes generally speaking *not directing this toward rocky* when your opponent is using every single cheat in the game to play against you, like Miralay whom had 30 multy accounts that were making him an average of 1m+ points a day, make the lines between whats moral and whats not fade away. Although I would hope that every single dirty hit out there is due to this circumstance the reality of it is that alot of these hits happen to people that dont deserve them. In the specific case of Miralay we had taken him out many times as Rechit has witnessed it first hand in Electra.
Here are some of the major ones for history re-freshness sake.
[TD: 49.101.125.000] TIGRIS & Kenyard & Ikaros & Uruk [FFO] & DestroyerX [.DbD.] -vs- MIRALAY [TSK]
[TD: 29.153.849.000] Ikaros & ROCKY & Kenyard & TIGRIS & crazyphd[FFO] -vs- MIRALAY[TSK] -(TP~5B)
Tig[FFO] & ROCKY[iM. ] & DestroyerX[Mirage] -vs- MIRALAY[T S K ] ~(TD: 12,24 G)
So taking into consideration that we had taken out Miralay many many times + the fact that what he was doing was a grey area in the rules + the weak game punishments served as an incentive for Miralay to keep on doing what he was doing. I believe its these extreme cases that warrant something as drastic as a double cross to be done. Ultimately though anyone can do such a hit but the reality is if you apply this dirty double cross to the wrong target you risk loosing years worth of reputation/respect/trust w/e you call it. Of course some people might not give a crap about that but that's beside the point.
In the case of Miralay hit 99% of the comments apart from the only "Man" left in Quantum aka Superman aka Chibo were positive even though everyone understood how the hit was done, and I believe that's because Miralay fell into that specific category I am talking about... Have we taken him out in the past? Surely, was he a Major cheater? Sure, Could we have taken him out with out dirty double cross in the future? Most Likely, but why should I devote on taking out the same target over and over because GameForge fails to enforce harsher punishments toward cheaters... that + the direction this game has been taking has been the main motives behind my retirement, I just did it suicide bomber style... took out Miralay with me.
Ultimately anyone can pull off a dirty hit and the people in the universe will be the judges and juries
now commenting on this specific hit, personally I think this was a bad strategical move in my opinion
1) Solidarity did chibos bidding for him... As by Tours reactions I am sure they are all happy that rocky is gone
2) A potential acs attacker/defender with 50m+ Military points is gone
3) Karma might be a in the future
4) People now might be less willing to help out Solidarity, potentiall of loosing suppliers/acs partners
of course I also get the motives behind doing this hit, after rocky took over the account he left the blocked Rleague solar system, at best you might call it rocky being paranoid and at worst you might call it an act of war? Then from my understanding he removed Limecat from buddy list and started probing him frequently... The question remains did Solidarity have a valid reason to do this hit in such a way specially since rocky is always v mode, which took away the more traditional approaches.
These are all the facts, I am not taking any sides on this as I still dont know at this time if Rocky really warranted and deserved what he got served.
shame about the fleet though, the pilots will be missed.
Ben well no one can deny the TD is epic on this one, and keith think of it as an early mandatory retirement plan which will save you both tremendous amount of money and time not being wasted on an epic game that has been ruined by GF.
