Defenders Against Monopolised Paving

For a long time, building shoppes has been the privilege of the huge alliances.

Imperial Coalition recently built large amounts of shoppes on Hadrian and Laby under the protection of Knockout.

RiddleMakers monopolised the market for years under the protection of the mega ring AoD. They sold shoppes for outrageous amounts of poe. At that time, AoD held 85% of all Viridian's islands and 100% of the larges.

The prices where kept high and the flags controling the ocean could use the income from them to make sure that no new flag broke through.

When Legacy was new, we had to make everything we needed from stalls or buy it dockside. It took a huge effort and an unecessarily large amount of poe.

Nowadays, I see weak flags buying shoppes on islands, where they could just as well build them. They claim to do it out of love for green pixels. I do not believe that. I believe that they do it out of fear from the reactions from stronger flags.

Therefore Legacy wishes to make an example. This example is that we built four shoppes for reasonable prices on Viridian's holiest island. We were hoping to show the ocean that you do not have to play the hypocrite game, that only serves to constitute a fixed economical hierarchy among the flags.

If you need a shoppe at your island, or just can get poe enough to fight another day from it, then DO IT. It is better to go down in flames than to constantly make yourself smaller then you could be.

Whenever the call to unite the ocean against you is made, we will be there to back you up. We do not care about green pixels and frankly neither do they, they just want a monoplised market.

We do not want too see that again. We are the Defenders Against Monopolised Paving.

Oh I don't know why you are in favor of a monopolized market, maybe you are just a groupie of thous that do benefit from it or maybe you just ain't bright enough to see it for what it is.

Stupidity is a very common problem and nothing you should be ashamed of in some groups it is actually demanded by the members.

Edit: fixed a typo

So I'm a stupid groupie? I guess I can get behind that.

Also smooth move deleting your post.

Re: Defenders Against Monopolised Paving

Elfeesh is the most typical example of the weak flags I do speak about; instead of greeting me as saviour as he reasonably should he lashes out in anger to show the opressors, whose booty he has been forced to lick for so long now, that he is on their side and should not be punished. This will forever stun his growth and keep him a small man if no one leads the way and frees him despite his own protests. Don't you worry, Elfeesh. I will save you. I know that you have not chosen to be this way and I know who made you become like this.

We have a Defence Against Monopolised Paving and we are on your side!

This is not an excuse, this is a researched and theorized fact. If you had the ardor to support anybody apart from who sound coolest on the forums, you would be looking this up yourself.

In clarification, Legacy is not giving ANY excuses for its actions. The fact that people with five year smooches on their info pages troupe together to bring down any newcomer shows this.

Re: Defenders Against Monopolised Paving

Give it up Q. The opposition takes this shit way too seriously. Anything you say they will OMGDodo over it. Bunch of weak ass scrubs. You cant even attempt to make it fun and invent little causes to fight for, their panties will get all twisted, while their own leaders are doing the exact same thing, inventing causes to fight for.

I see your reasoning, it's just stupid as shit, and makes absolutely no sense.

If you really think that paving Kirin for any possible Powerhouse on the ocean would be enough to monopolize the market, then you're just an idiot. There are already SO MANY goddamn shoppes on this ocean that they sell for 400k a piece, new plots sell for 1mil, maybe two.

That is NOT enough to monopolize the market, and unless a couple of other larges are opened in the past year, it won't be possible to do so unless another SMA holding all of the larges comes around.

I also find it a bit demeaning on your part to claim that I (Of all people, lol) am just following the crowd, when it is so clear to me and everyone else that you're just TROLOLOLING the fuck out of all of us.

Good day, sir.

Comes around eh? Those things just pop up right, they dont form. No need to use preventative measures. Dweeb.

You of all people? Lmfao. Dude. Maybe like 2 people know who you are. Maybe 0.5 actually care.

But to clarify for Nag, this kid doesnt follow the crowd, he does what he thinks will get him attention. Hes one of those irl failures I told you to avoid.

Re: Defenders Against Monopolised Paving

 
The theory worked didnt it?Now newbies like you can hop around buying shoppes wherever you like, which is all that matter. If I get called an idiot in the process, it was worth it.


Considering Legacy knows a LOT of us involved today do not plan to play Meridian wen it merges makes me wonder why Legacy didn't think a better excuse.

Re: Defenders Against Monopolised Paving

You are not the only ugly fish in the pond, Whiterose. I am building for a better tomorrow and it is not specifically directed at you, even if you are one of the most hypocritical pavers Viridian has ever seen. You are also old news and I would not bother a project this size just for your sake.

Re: Defenders Against Monopolised Paving

Cute! Sadly theres nothing to back you up and a lot of history to prove you wrong; see Hadrian, we opened the island yet didn't build more than 1-2 of each kind, governed TLM and didn't build a single shoppe, RM didn't plan to build a single shop on SF, when I took over Laby there was over 30 SYs when I left Lab it was down to 15ish and if you need more take a look at RM job on Jubilee.

Awww, Lune hun, why did you delete that previous post? I didn't even need to try very hard for you to go off of your rocker.

You do claim to be a professional troll, don't you? I think you should be able to spot one when it's looking at you right in the face. Maybe you were just tired and you weren't at your best? Yeah, that's it.

Re: Defenders Against Monopolised Paving

See Whiterose, this is why I just bluntly have to call you a liar. I was there. I saw what you did. If you were honest about it, we would have no problem. It is when you feel that you and you alone are allowed to build I will have to set my foot down like this.

Professional? Lawd. Thats like saying 'omg im emo'. It means youre.... not really the real deal, feel me? Kudos though, Im sure you'll get far in your world.

And oh so very very clever. Unfortunately, those shoppes existed. The post of course didn't. Roseh already tried this game on me before sugardumplin.
