Now where was I...oh yes, now I remember. The final days of Empires of Blood taught me a great deal. Godfather and OldWolf took me under their wings and showed me the ropes of the game. After a couple of weeks of building planets and upgrading my ship steadily...I began getting antsy. I wanted to rise in the ranks and the only way to do it was to attack other players.
I noticed a player named Annika who had not logged in a while. Over a month actually. I mapped a few of her sectors and slowly whittled her defenses down. The planet was relatively easy to take over but when I did....Oh my jesus...I discovered a trove of credit. Over 180trillion who to me, with my level 34 excelsior, was hitting the jackpot in vegas. 13 Planets that day with over 130trillion each....I went home and upgraded my ship to level 41. I was ecstatic..I felt like Hercules.
The next day I came back to discover that other players had started hitting annika also (damn that Cougar) so I started hitting the ones I knew as fast as i could. I told my teammates my discovery and they also jumped on the bandwagon. When the dust cleared, My ship was level 43 and the top 10 were held by my team and Eternal Empire. Queen Feril and Phaelanx from C.O.P were in 2nd and 3rd place. That started me thinking. The way everyone hit Annika so fast knocked her down and destroyed her empire overnight. Thus was hatched my Queen Feril plan.
My team and I began hitting Queen Feril hard. She was in second place and was known to be a nefarious foe. She hadn't logged on in two days and we were hitting her around the clock...we did not want her to come back and start whipping us like bad schoolboys. It was brutal. We were taking an average of 70 planets per day. She had over 500 planets and it took us 8 days to whittle her empire to toothpicks. Our luck I believe is that she never logged on during this time...if she had, we would have been dead meat.
But she was still in 2nd place and after we took 98% of her planets she would not budge. I finally found her hidden sectors and found her sleeping in ther Excelsior...thank the gods with no pod even!! After killing her...she just dissappeared and next day...all her planets were independents...everyone was snatching them up.
I ended in 7th place which I don't think it was so bad...the bad thing about it was maintaining all those planets...jesus...that was a job on its own. Next time...I'm not taking so many planets...it stopped being a game and became a job.
