Upkeep Wars!

Well to our shock and surprise today we glance at the leader board and The Awakened is sitting at number #2? We tried to figure out how all this happened. Since the rise of The Awakened they have been #1, today though only briefly they were knocked off their perch. It looks like a number of members have left, and the number of mid sized members has fallen, and the big keep getting bigger. We imagine that this must put heavy strain on the other members to feed the mass that is ZWZW. It is safe to say that that the structure of the smaller members feeding the top members may be crumbling.

It has been made official that Untouchables and Knights Templar are at war. Untouchables temporarily at #1 when the attacks first started, and KT at rank 5. Untouchables now at rank #2, (Feels good to be home!) and KT at Rank 7, currently and from the looks of it still holding. An easy 50 Mil Glory loss on each side, from the looks of it, Eveolution seems to be dropping as well.

Well some say that the realm is dead, and go of crying into their pillow, but
this time has been more interesting to watch then ever!

Watch in amazement for The Upkeep Wars!

Update

Well if you are like the Many who tried getting in the other night you were a little surprised at Apollo being a bastard, and not letting you in.  The anouncement was that the server would be down from 10 PM Pacific Time, to 12 AM at the time of the server flip. Well it was actually pretty funny that it ended up being till about 2 AM pacific time. Double the amount of time that Kabam said it would be. The nice thing is, if everyone couldn’t bitch in gloabal about GOR, they wasted no time bitching on Kabam’s forums and facebook pages.

Blah blah blah upkeep.

blah blah two hours, blah blah four hours.

It should be Kabullshit, instead of Kabam.

Well all in all we think that new music addition is interesting it now sounds like you are playing Oblivion instead of GOR. It is a nice add on, we just hope that it is set up on browsers to keep the settings, otherwise your boss will actually know your not working lol.

A while back there was some talks from Kabam about adding visual effects, nothing to snazzy though. But we would find it interesting in a sort, as long as the other Roman Warlords approved.

 

White Flags by THE_FARMER

Well, globally we do appreciate what you do for CL4, it seems that once this blog came about that the realm is string once again. I do appreciate the homage that you pay to the alliances, and to individual players active or not. So I would like to write an article on the War with Kashyyyk and The Awakened.

Well it was a war of respect, the right to be, the right to belong. The spark, of the tensions and hostilities originated between a light war between us and another alliance. Which he had always had minor shuffles with. It was at this time that The Awakened set us to neutral. It came to light afterwords that the Alliance we had originally had a problem with was friends with TA. It was oblivious to us at the time, but in retrospect I see that alliances having each others back is a far greater for the global society than not. Which could/will/shall be in question to many, but my personal thoughts on the matter are that it is this trust, that enables the realm to be stable. There are many alliances big or small as always, but in the agreements and accords of these alliances to back one another we have a realm with consistency. A realm where the word of alliance holds, and once allies are not left to suffer.

The war, well frankly was the most entertaining thing to happen to my life and career in CL4. The Awakened are a formidable opponent, one that deserves their respects. But what we sought in the war, was more than some went after TA for and less than others. We wanted our own respect. We didn’t go for the title of taking the Awakened down, nor vengeance and retribution. We always sought a peaceful existance with the top 10 and most of the top 20. But as a newly formed alliance, we had those who tested our boundaries and resolve.

“If you want peace, prepare for war.”

As we are/were a new alliance, it would come the time of making a name for ourselves, and with tensions escalating, the roar of our soldiers stomachs aching, it indeed was time for war. The neutrality cause, in most alliances means that you are open to farming. It was never much of a problem, as it is understandable. The bigger alliances have a higher upkeep and therefore any player hoarding resources and not defending is an easy lunch so to speak. Personally I had no problem with this, it would show our members the benefits of not stocking unessential bulk resources.

The problem came to be, when it became over board. Which may have not had so much to do with The Awakened as a whole, but more to do with a single member who was exiting the game and wished to instill a sour taste in the mouth of those who had no problems against him. But sacking two of our 9-10 Million glory players is not farming but an act of war.

The War, was probably the greatest learning experiences that once could ever learn from, watching the biggest and some of the best players in the realm and the tactics they use. I watched patiently and immobilized as Qamlasi attacked a larger player who was offline. Watching a master of battle mechanics implement destruction with out a single hitch. The event wasn’t upsetting but enticing. Watching everything I had been studying for months come to light. Wave after wave, designed to take out each type of troop and crack a single layer of the fortress until there was no more. The war was not a bulky wrecking ball of destruction, where size made the difference it was knowledge and tactics that dictated the war. Watching as the unknown heads, in Awakened came online and the gears turning on both sides as what to do.

This blog had referenced that the game is three dimensional, and the war brought this theory to light in my mind. As we were flooded with reports, and scouts to confuse our reinforcements, as we did the same. As we sent donkey attacks to mask and hide our real assaults, the taunts over global to make a single player slip of their better judgment and attack a coordinated defense blind.

Both sides lost people in the war, but it is a principal idea in Kashyyyk and from talks as well as The Awakened that the strong survive and the weak will perish. Those who continued to war felt the level of cohesiveness and morale to boost their skills to new heights.

However, nothing is with out an end. To be honest it was a war mongering session over global in which talks went from argumentative and competitive to complacent. It is a warrior who respects a fellow warrior, and it is the place of the leaders to not push their members to no end. It was a few days later it which I had officially asked to disengage hostilities with The Awakened over global.

Talks with Domus, had occurred and we came to a peaceful agreement. In all this time, the game has never been more interesting. Having spoken with a number of Awakened players who were to say the least excellent fighters and even better people. I wish to instill a different thought to the global populous.
A fish in the sea is eaten by a great white shark, the fish next to him, doesn’t think or care or hold a grudge against the shark. The shark is a shark, and completes its purpose in the circle of life. What anyone truthfully must commend, is the system that awakened have designed. Not everyone is a money player, but there are some in every alliance. Truthfully everyone is going to despise whoever is #1 on the board. But it is the cost to be the boss, in which most aren’t willing to bare. It takes a level of coordination, organization and time that most aren’t willing to spend. Before any hasty or ignorant thoughts or messages are thrown around, think of how big the players are, think of what rules and policies must be in place to maintain this. The world isn’t fair nor is GOR, but it has been a very exciting time and given me the opportunity to meet very interesting and respectable players. Play on CL4!

Thank you,

Leader of Mandalore

VC of Kashyyyk

Going to the Vet…

Well blatantly obvious, Kt headed by Maguss is sending the troops out to do their community service of castration.

Well, we thought it was hilarious, but what it meant by this is Legion and KT are at war. In all fairness, it appears that KT is getting bigger and stronger where as legion is getting smaller. We don’t want to predict the outcome because with the right general of attack, any opponent can be squashed. But KT is home to a number of the big sharks in this realm, and each player may require a coordinated strike. Rumors floating around of the Untouchables going after KT as well, but are yet to be confirmed.

Either way, Paying a visit to the Vet can be expensive, and for the animal…Well being neutered isn’t any fun.

Taking the Gloves off

Well it is more than apparent that there is a war going on with The Awakened and Kashyyyk. Heated words in Global, millions of glory loss. But its quite possible that its just what the realm needed. The Awakened’s food demands were just too much for CL4. But the question we have is Why? Why a war between these two?

From the looks of it, there is a steady decline of members and glory on both sides, and it the battle looks to be exclusive to these two alliances and Mandalore. A fair fight hopefully. Kashyyyk has been getting into minor fights with much of the top ten, usually resulting in ” A quick end to conflicts, and to be on better terms.” A tip quotes.

What we find amazing is, that no alliance has gone up against The Awakened, and inflicted so much damage. Its possible that many of the Awakened aren’t focusing so much on this realm anymore. Regardless of what the outcome is, the Wookies may go down as the single handed best alliance of resistance fighters in recent game history. Not favoring sides, but you have to admit that the task at hand has caused alliances to crumble in a few hours, and made chancellors leave to other realms.

“The Coalition simply can not be so large, Awakened, Untouchables, AND, FL, Vandals and any sister alliances simply leaves no room for others to exist.”-General consensus

We agree, a coalition of such large alliances, simply cannot exist and it will result in the coalition themselves being the only players left in the realm. A thought amongst global followers, is that there is less 2ooo active players in the game.

Play on CL4 the game is getting interesting once more!

Fall of the Republic

Well it looks like the amassed UKR people have fallen once again, their new found empire in ruins once more. It seems that The Awakened can only tolerate an enemy on the leader board for so long. Hope remains, as a reclamation group called Mordor emerges from the ashes. Founded by a MrWizard, now headed up by Lorelai.

Well we are digging the LOTR reference…

However…We think that you should rename it the Fellowship…Have MrWizard the leader playing the role of Gandalf… Cast every member of your alliance as a hobbit. And have Lorelai try to bring the ring to the fires of The Awakened. Now what is the reference to the “Ring.”  hmmm….

Well, what ever you dub as the ring, will have to go in to the fire…

War Cry…

They say a war cry, but then they cry war

They said they would take me, but they are no more

You said you will break me, your troops lye dead across GOR

I will fight forever, I am a warrior

Decorate my cities with your fallen cents

Leave you screaming for neutrality with your new sense

Tonight we go out with red lights of a flashing city

Red and blue the reports go, it was such a pity

Who knows who won, who even was scoring

Better luck tomorrow, we battle in the morning
