Can't tell you much more I had left for 8 years, heard about moo in CN radio

Jesus, that sucks. I heard there was an accident, but nothing else.

 

Me too, your avatar looks actually similiar to someone I knew back in ONOS.

I see. I honestly think this game is dead? I don't see anyone from old (though, I guess that was 12 years ago...christ im old.) Lots of missing Alliances too.

 

back in my day it was GATO, NPO, NpO, ODN, IRON, GPA, GGA, GOONS.LUE.

Well GATO, both orders, ODN, IRON, GPA are all still here.

 

Still quite a few old players around, a lot of brought nations back so you might see someone like me with a 2017 nation that started in 06

 

It is much slower but can lead to some interesting play. An alliance of 50 isn't a micro alliance anymore for example.

It just looks like NPO is still top dog in comparison to the rest, honestly. It's always been that way, guess it'll always be that way.

Pretty much when NPO and IRON are allied, not much is going to change that, still there are some interesting fights and of course the real value as always is the comradeship with your alliance mates

TOP is gone

 

I also don't know what time frame you are talking. The Current Hegemony is NPO, NpO, Umbrella, Non Grata, Glof, IRON, (apologies to whoever i'm forgetting), it is called Oculus.

oh yeah Init was a long time ago, did you miss Karma when Continuum or Q (Pacfica's bloc then) broke up (or some left) and it was the world rolling NPO and IRON? I left shortly after Karma so I missed the intervening years, I guess there were periods where NPO was not on top, different hegemonies.

 

Though your link reminds me, I forgot VE is in Oculus.

I guess I missed that. The initiative was the last I remember. 

 

My prime they were in “the hegemony” which is the one with the orders, top, etc. 

 

i heard if a war between NPO and NPO, too, as well as GGA getting rolled. 

 

I was in ONOS. Came back a bit after The unjust war and left again. 

 

What happened tk RNR? Flonker? Mushroom Kingdom die? FARK? LUE? GATO? GOONS? I remember when gato was top dog haha. How things have changed.

Remember that the most important part of The Initiative was WUT - World Unity Treaty.  I miss the old days when people were upset about things like raiding, rolling FARK because why not, attacking GPA members who would aid FAN. Good times!!!!!
