My current sick strat entails inflating the post count, burning-out players to lower their defenses during the late-game
Once the noise is inevitably gone, they will become complacent; and, in their relief, open to new leadership. Then, it will be the time for Kawl to assume the serious throne for us
franc and WAMD, do whatever for now
gryvan, I know this is gonna be tough to hear so I apologize in advance... objectively, reading your posts in the thread as a whole, I feel that the other players see you right now as a "scummy opportunist" who latches on to the current trends in-thread and barely scrapes together a pile of opinion sentences from it >_> No offense, just calling it as I think they're reading you
so, gryvan, here is my advice, it's totally okay if you don't use it; at your discretion, I think you should get an avatar.
That simple visual will instil a bit of trust towards you in the minds of the other players, seriously. Also, it will subliminally refresh and soft-reset your posts in other players' minds, as seeing the new avatar in thread will subtly affect them into thinking there's a new player around
...or, actually, reading your latest posts again; consistency as you are could carry you quite far, gry. The flippant low post-count contributor is a good niche to fill... but you'll need to up the quality of your reads. Less shooting at me, comment a bit more on Crab, CCS, acorns and maybe WAMD or *Splinter
