In kingsofchaos, I got the following message from "OverLordStriker":

Can you tell your officer PirogoethX to stop bothering our members please,

And my reply:
Excuse me? Perhaps you can tell me the point of the game? If you don't like getting attacked, don't play. Its as simple as that. I get attacked practically every 3-4 hours. But you don't hear me complaining about it. Plus I don't really control the guy, anyway.

Now, Pirogoeth, give us some links to his members so we can join in the attack fun (especially the newbies). Slashdot KoC... its time to harass and annoy someone to death! And I got almost 2,000 attack turns ;-)

Of course, OverlordStriker's commander is Lord Striker who is sitting pretty at rank #1 and a Hand Of God.... but would he waste attack turns on people annoying his underlings? Hell no! :-D

Sounds like he might just be baiting you, FK. Watch out for a possible trap.

Either that or bitchslap the guy into oblivion, baby!

....Bethanie....

heh, he must really be after you (1)

Abm0raz (668337) | about 10 years ago | (#8739925)

He sent me an offer to join his clan and leave you as my officer. Of course I'd have to restart (he said so himself) but I'd be built up again so fast from his "Clan's click network" that it wouldn't matter. I politely sent him a reply back to "Go **** yourself."

ps. FK, hop on IM sometime today. I have something you may be intersted in.

can't get onto AIM until late late tonight (work won't let me on aim, and I'm getting a 'surprise visit' from my mom and sister tonight, so I have to clean as soon as I get home). You could always email joshmarotti _at_ yahoo to get ahold of me, though. I check it regularly at work.

In your very first KoC JE, I used your link to sign up and I haven't logged in again since. Based on the JE's I've read I assume I've been beaten to a pulp by now?

insanecarbonbasedlif (623558) | about 10 years ago | (#8740470)

What's your username? I want to spy on you, see how many attack turns you've gotten, maybe steal your gold!

Re:I'm sure I can help! (1)

turg (19864) | about 10 years ago | (#8740520)

Assuming I haven't been attacked before -- seems unlikely.

Re:I'm sure I can help! (1)

You'll still have all of your attack turns...

I gave another of his officers [kingsofchaos.com] a few attack turns. I assume BansheeOverlord will let OverlordStriker know...

Let's see if they try to retaliate, with virtually no defense and no gold it's not like I have anything to lose if they do :D

Har Har! (1)

Pirogoeth (662083) | about 10 years ago | (#8740497)

I've been farming someone named tangyang for awhile. I got a message from a buddy of his asking me to knock it off. I promptly ignored him.

Later I got a message from tangyang himself:

please stop attacking me now.

you already had enough gold from me, so stop it.
i tell you, i'm in the strikerclan, nobody wish a mass attack happen.
i give you a warning and this is last time.


I mailed him back:

Yay. So you're in the Striker Clan. Big whoop. I'm shaking in my boots? (Well, okay, I'm not actually wearing boots right now, but you get the idea...)


You want me to stop attacking you? Stop leaving 500,000+ in gold sitting around as that's my lower limit for attacking anyone. If I have 15 turns saved up and I see you with that much gold again, unless I find someone else with more to take, I'm taking yours. Come to think of it, I'll probably take yours anyway, as I usually do with people who write me begging for mercy.

If you feel like attacking me, bring it on. I can take anything you or any of your mates can dish out.

So suck it up, Sparky! Spend that gold on armour before I grab it from you and eventually I'll have to leave you alone.

Cheers!


This morning I was attacked ten times, including once by Mr. Overlordstriker himself:

4 hours ago OverlordStriker 1,023 Gold stolen 1 0 0 (21,120,526)(198,487)


As you can see, the benefits of a small army are evident, as he only took 1023 in gold, didn't kill a single man, and didn't even damage my armor! I sent him a message:

Don't spend all that gold in one place!


He wrote back:

stay away from our members


I responded:

But how can I resist when they leave those big, tempting piles of gold lying around?


He quickly responded:

there are better farms out there, you have to understand we can't let our members being farmed just like that..


I sent him a message back saying that 1) I never pay attention to what clans someone might be in, 2) Threats of "I'm in LordStriker's Clan! Leave me alone or else!" don't impress me, and 3) People emailing me begging me to lay off only draw more attacks. I told him I'd look elsewhere to farm, and that tangyang had one more retaliatory stike coming his way for all the chipshots I took this morning. Overlordstriker wrote back:

Thanks, have a nice day further;)


Greets,

OverlordStriker


Heh. I wrote Mr. tangyang back as well, explaining that the ten attacks brought me only five dead soldiers and less than 100k in gold stolen. I told him he's got one more spanking coming his way, "maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon" and that I would (probably) leave him alone after that. No response from tangyang yet...

This is actually kind of fun! Way better than NationStates was...

Re:Har Har! (1)

insanecarbonbasedlif (623558) | about 10 years ago | (#8740621)

What kind of resources do you need (that you apparently have) to get through tangyang's 167 dragonskins and a portcullis fortification?

Re:Har Har! (1)

mekkab (133181) | about 10 years ago | (#8740880)

Tangyang has 5,353,125 defense.

elephants and 100 dragons might do it... Elephants and 80 dragons won't.

Re:Har Har! (1)

John Harrison (223649) | about 10 years ago | (#8746047)

I should hit that today in offense. Let the fun begin! I will have 5.46 mil in a few hours once I get my elephants, and I already have 128 excalibers. If only I were an orc, I would already be there!

Re:Har Har! (1)

mekkab (133181) | about 10 years ago | (#8746531)

I think I got elephants too soon. I must have mis-read the damn spreadsheet. I'm not swinging like I used to. This is a sad time to be an orc in my camp.

Re:Har Har! (1)

John Harrison (223649) | about 10 years ago | (#8746590)

Did I send you the newest version? A certain orc pointed out to me that some of the formulas were a bit off. I'll send you the latest. Also, if you have wasted money based on my inability to correctly interpret what they meant by +33%, I hope that my posting of the striker clan link more than makes up for any wasting of money that you have done on my account.

Re:Har Har! (1)

mekkab (133181) | about 10 years ago | (#8747915)

oh absolutely! Actually, I think I may have confused your spreadsheet with another's spreadsheet; I may have taken their word for it as opposed to yours.

Re:Har Har! (1)

John Harrison (223649) | about 10 years ago | (#8748011)

Sloppy got the formulas right. I was a bit off. The version I just sent you uses Sloppy's method and is dead on for trained humans. I also use it to estimate enemy defenses when I don't get the defensive action when spying. Just put in the number of dragonskins and then upgrade until upgrading isn't economical. Works pretty well.

Mine currently has some strange fields that are suited to my all-out offense strategy. Even so the numbers for defense are accurate now. Basically I keep buying Mithril armor when I have the cash to do so and save it for a strike action upgrade. I have fields that are unlabeled that tell me how many Excalibers I could buy with the Mithrils and what % of the way I am to the next upgrade. The whole thing is a mess and needs to be cleaned up.

What's this, a farming co-op? :)

Knock yourself out!

BTW, 4 days ago, my spies reported his DA as 4,361,625.

tagyang defense update: (1)

mekkab (133181) | about 10 years ago | (#8740833)

5,353,125

I just cashed some dragons for elephants (?) so I'm actually tapped out and not swinging what I should (low 4 mil!)

Re:Har Har! (1)

Sloppy (14984) | about 10 years ago | (#8741434)

Come to think of it, I'll probably take yours anyway, as I usually do with people who write me begging for mercy.
I like your attitude, Human. Do you have any Orc ancestry?

baldass_newbie (136609) | about 10 years ago | (#8743096)

I am definitely working to make my army smaller. I've been doing it kind of in passing, but that small amount he took really got me to focus.
I've got pretty good hit strength, so now I can build up some attacks and go crazy.

I just get too excite sometimes and start attacking.

Hmmm (1)

baldass_newbie (136609) | about 10 years ago | (#8740622)

Tonight I'll look for someone to nail.
If we all attack Overlord together, we can cause some damage but it will have to be coordinated. ;-)

What's Overlord's Defense? (1)

mekkab (133181) | about 10 years ago | (#8740664)

he's got an okay sized army (3x mine, but I'm trying to lose weight) and TRENCHES?! But my spies can't get anything on him.

Lord Intron is weak at 700k defense, and Banshee is at 247k, Up_the_gas is at 556k, smoky death has 22k, OverlordStrikerOfficer has 20k.

Re:What's Overlord's Defense? (1)

FortKnox (169099) | about 10 years ago | (#8740739)

He's ranked in the 200s... his O is in the 23million range, and I can't imagine what his D is, but I'm sure its megalo powerful.

Re:What's Overlord's Defense? (1)

mekkab (133181) | about 10 years ago | (#8740915)

what is your O? I tried to spy you but I didn't make it through.

Re:What's Overlord's Defense? (0)

FortKnox (169099) | about 10 years ago | (#8741441)

I'm just under 1mil O and over 3mil D. The siege ability needs upgraded (below catapults), but my fortification is uberhigh.

Oh, and I have about 150 spies at like level 7 or 8, so I'm almost maxed out for full spy protection.

OverlordStriker's Defense (1)

Sloppy (14984) | about 10 years ago | (#8741284)

Seeing as how begging for mercy (a sign of weakness) excites my orcist instincts, I felt compelled to tickle OverlordStriker's perimeter. My attack was unsuccessful.

Based on his 220 armed defenders and the damage ratio from my attack, I estimate his defense is approximately 8.5 million.

Re:OverlordStriker's Defense (1)

mekkab (133181) | about 10 years ago | (#8742177)

Thanks for taking one for the team.

Though thats double my current attack. But thats still not amazingly high.

Re:OverlordStriker's Defense -- it won't be enough (1)

Sloppy (14984) | about 10 years ago | (#8743306)

But thats still not amazingly high.
Yep, if he slacks off like FK instead of continuing to raise the bar, we'll eventually punch through. Then we'll run wild through his camp, loot all the goods, ravish the women, kill the eldery/crippled/useless, and enslave the young. We'll break into his armory and learn the secret of his steel and incorporate it into our warblades. His gold and gems will run between our fingers like mountain spring water, frozen in time. We'll empty his ale kegs in riotous revelry, while our new slaves dance to entertain us, lest they be fed to the wargs. WE'LL TAKE IT ALL!!

By the time his attack force spots the smoke on the horizon and races home -- to an earth trampled by our boots and scorched by dragonfire -- there will be nothing left for him, except the need to rebuild. And even that will be an empty, hopeless endeavor, for in his heart, he will know that we'll just return another day, to pillage again. His spirit will be crushed and he'll be wounded forever.

Isn't it exciting? Don't you pity non-Orcs, who will never truly understand this pleasure, or feel its full intensity?

ahhhh, reading your eloquent prose has saddened me. I have only a handful of action points, but oh how I crave the slaughter! The mayhem! the chaos! the venison! the burnination!

A Better Spreadsheet (1)

Pirogoeth (662083) | about 10 years ago | (#8740815)

I've been using this [geocities.com] lately.

Besides showing you optimal fortifications, you can also plug in partial data you get from your spies and it will try to decide if you can successfully hit your target or not. Pretty nice.

Re:A Better Spreadsheet (1)

insanecarbonbasedlif (623558) | about 10 years ago | (#8741617)

Good stuff. But it thinks I upgraded too quickly on my fortification and seige technology. I know that I didn't jump the gun because it would have cost me more to buy weapons to get the increase that I did than it cost me to upgrade. But it's still a very interesting tool.

Dammit (1)

The Third Goat (757358) | about 10 years ago | (#8744401)

Why do I read things like this just after I spent all my attack turns?

Anyway, if you want to annoy someone without spending a lot of attack turns, attack them several times with 1 turn each. I've noticed that there don't seem to be any fewer fatalities with one attack turn than with 15. Fun for the whole family. (Of course it helps if you're svelte little Offensive player like myself)

Re:Dammit (1)

John Harrison (223649) | about 10 years ago | (#8746146)

You are correct. The way to really annoy someone is to have all of use attack 5 times with only 1 turn. They will lose lots of soldiers. Of course we have to pay to repair weapons, but it might be worth it in some cases.

Important! Join Striker Clan without quitting! (1)

John Harrison (223649) | about 10 years ago | (#8746018)

First of all, FK, you are welcome for singlehandedly increasing your number of troops by 50% in the last few days. How did I do it? After getting an offer to delete my character and join Striker Clan I befriended someone who has found a way to sneak in. Oddly this happened because I stopped farming someone after he asked nicely.

That is the link to join. They have a clickmaster page that gives you links to click on. Even better they have a little app that works with IE to automate much of the process. You just sit there and click on numbers. Each click you give is a click you get. As you can tell from looking at my number of soldiers (120 to over 800 in three days) it works.

After joining you can log in at:
