22nd of September 2004, the day that Cassandra Vandales persuaded a bunch of us from an old Star Wars message board to give the English version of Ogame (which had started approximatly 10 days earlier) a try. Most of those members didn't last more then a few years, but the alliance lived on.
Things have changed a lot since the alliance was founded (the same day I also started my O-Journey) but we kept on going.
Happy 18th to my alliance!
Time for us to have a drink or 2
I think now is also a good time for me to step back from the game, at least for a while in VM (which feels super weird, as it's at least 12 years since I enabled VM in u1) if not full retirement.
It's been a good run, and I've proud of what I built my uni1 account up to, without spending a fortune (only running officers and the very occasional relo / instant building of research) , abusing MCU / ress packages, pushing or bug using.
But the game reeeaaally isn't what it once was. It hasn't been for a long time tbh, nor do I think the lifeforms will have a positive impact on the game, rather just massively widen the gap between big, and minor / non-spenders.
I won't make any shoutouts, as I'm certain I will miss a lot of important people.
Take care everyone, keep your ress pooled, your ships fueled and your fleet saves tight and random .
I love you all, and goodnight.
