Post EotS is out.
It's been fun being the best ever.

Super short version, EotS is out.

Short version, we are tired of being better than everyone else and we lose sleep at night thinking about how awful every other legion is so for the sake of our 10 hours of healthy sleep, we are closing shop.

Long version.
God I've been playing this game too long. Tree is and always will be #1 and I think enough time has past that everyone else truly understands that by now or refuses to stop living in the land of denial.

EotS was the last hurrah for many ships so we burned through high rank ships at a super fast rate. Rank 1500 joins, rank 2000 quits, rank 1500 joins, rank 2400 gets banned, you know how it goes. Now many of us have just grown away from the game due to turning points in our lives, graduating college and having kids are death sentences to many GL ships for all the right reasons.

Accomplishments.
- 1st level 10 base, gracias oh squishy one
- perfected the ~9 bases a day system, enough silver badges to blow our base stats way past any legion out there despite them being years older than us. Seriously, why didn't anyone ever think to do that before EotS? Cause ya stupid, that's why.
- perfected multi killing everything all day every day. For you newer folk, multi kill as in 1 base/ship/NPC elite that is simultaneously killed by a few ships causing the game to give you rewards several times for the exact same base/ship/NPC
- 4 - 8x disables on DCN
- 3 - 5x disables on bases
- 2 - 6x disables on enemy ships
- angering enough people that the bakers dozen coalition was created to try and teach us a lesson, something like 13 of the top 20 legions tried to beat us, hahahahahahaha, what a bunch of no talent clowns.
- 1st legion to make someone cry using just our legion description, Dan sat us down for a talk asking us to stop......
- tore apart the long standing Triumvirate from the inside :P Viva la fluffy bunny
- 1st top legion to actually call it quits instead of drifting slowly into nothingness while pretending to be super active

I'll always appreciate this game for it has put me into contact with such an unimaginable range of people. From amazing people who just wow you with generosity and kindness to people who you just disgust you with how mean and petty they can be for no reason.
Some of the more memorable people:
- Super mom with a billion kids who plays GL while waiting for the babies to settle down for the night
- Psychologist who stops you mid conversation to confirm a suspicion that you are talking about an only child dealing with an alcoholic parent who also dreams of one day raising a few hundred sheep
- Hilariously generous Canadian who spends his day stealing adult videos from adult sites to put onto his own adult site
- Space fanatic who constantly talks about science related things that advance the human race towards the goal of space colonization
- anyone from New Zealand, seriously these Kiwis are some of the laziest laid back folks ever
- the guy who got the babysitter pregnant that was married to his 2nd wife who was the babysitter from his first marriage who he had also gotten pregnant.
- the kid from Michigan who was in a cult and was just super cool about how it wasn't a big deal
- lets just skip over the awful people.....

I think the one thing I will miss the most and if you don't do this then I just feel sorry for you.
Talking to people from around the world. Just awesome.
Having a nice conversation, telling a story, then whoa whoa whoa, do you guys have this store in Australia?
What do you call the metal cage on wheels that you roll around putting your groceries in?
Shut up about poutine...
What's wrong with the fact we pronounce Kansas and Arkansas in different manners that would make sense to you?
Are we really going to talk about the difference between Fall and Autumn again?!?!

Tree is #1

They are bug abuses, and where I'm from that's called cheating. But I guess that's what EotS is best known for. Their willingness to bend or break the rules to their own benefit. Because, remember kids, it's not illegal if you don't get caught.
Good riddance to bad people if you ask me.

Guess this is the final trolling?

After cheating, being deuchebags, having many people banned, and generally being puds...poor leadership and ostricizing tons of good players...the legion who was crumbling sadly had called it a day as their few remaining good players jumped ship before it sank totally...

But hey, if saying "we're calling it quits" makes you feel fuzzy go for it.

Now the decent and non-collectors from your decayed and outdated crew can join real legions of real people and play again for fun.

Cheers!

ps- you did finally hit rank 2200 after only a year or more of being an absentee 'leader' (i cough heavily at that title)

Take care Colin. It was fun.

You know, that was years ago, and the bug was eventually fixed as a result. Dan didn't take any action on them at the time, mainly because it could happen without anyone even trying. You're just beating a dead horse now.

It seems a lot as if eots is on fire, everyone has left for other legions and tree is there going 'EVERYTHING IS FINE, THIS IS ALL INTENTIONAL, THIS IS IN NO WAY A FAILURE OF MY LEADERSHIP!' ;)

Anybody else find the timing strangely coincidental? The self proclaimed #1 GL player of all time is closing shop just as the self proclaimed #1 builder of all time kicks his presidential campaign into gear? :o Just sayin'

Were they fixed? That's news to me. I tend to PVP a bit and just within the last few months one of the people I red badged reported that someone else from an entirely different legion coincidentally red badged at the very same moment. Can't attest to the accuracy of the report since I wasn't on the receiving end, but if it's true then the bug that got one of the old EOTS powers banned probably still exists. And, if that exists, my presumption is that the game probably still has either all of or most of the other overflow types of bugs that have been reported by various players in the past. It's impossible to know since most of the serious players wouldn't even try to test this stuff themselves and I'm pretty sure that even if anyone actually had, they wouldn't report whether or not they still worked for fear of being banned just for having tried the cheat.

And, Tree, did you really mean to say "Tree is and always will be #1" or did you mean that "Tree" to be "EOTS"?
