Thumbs up to FlowoodMS, who partnered with me against Brand.
We scored some good victories!  Too bad we couldn't play more, but it seemed Brand's partner had enough of losing and finally left the server.

The top ranking players before used to have a code of ethics that is just lacking in the new players... It's sad, but everyone used to have better sportsmanship.



The little kids start driving out the older players until finally they're the only ones left.

you guys think you are the old school, you think you give the rules on galcon, you judge people just by seeing the stats...


First of all, the older players do NOT set the tone here--the whiny, annoying kids do.  I have an opinion which I voice now and then, but it is definitely in the minority. I don't care about the chat room or the forum or all the attendant Galcon drama.  I like playing the game, and the people playing these days simply suck.  As bksatbber said, they don't even understand the basics of sportsmanship:  the multiple accounts, the obsessive rank whoring, the childish rage quitting, and annoying team switching have all become so commonplace that new players accept it as the standard.  

Heisenberg remains the King of Galcon Douchetards and his juvenile behavior indicates just how low the bar is set here.  Whenever he shows up you can expect about five minutes of severely retarded gaming.  The compulsive, non-stop switching seems intended only to annoy people, as I see him do this in very balanced rooms.  Continually fighting to partner with this person (then, that person)is something he considers "part of the game."  And then he leaves to return with an alias.  I mean... grow up... just a little bit!  And then rapidly entering/leaving the room while he's in queue. When he finally does play, it turns out he's no better than the other spaz cadets.  And in ten minutes (or less) he's gone.  Ripxsidekick: three stripe with barely 200 games played.  Come on... the only people who take this seriously or think that 3S rank is somehow legitimate are pretty stupid to begin with.  Who do you think you're fooling?  The noobs, who don't know about the silly rank whoring tricks?  Is that your target audience?  

And then there's the level of gameplay itself, which has deteriorated since the arrival of teh Gam3rr Kiddz.  I speak enough about that in my thread, but... holy crap. I used to joke about setting up "Adult Galcon."  Now it's not so funny, as the better, more intelligent players wish there were some refuge from all the little jerks who have taken over the place.

When I first started posting here I WARNED people that Galcon has to begin moving in an intelligent direction if it is to attract intelligent players.  Intelligent, mature people generally do not like random, silly games which masquerade as "Strategy Games."  They come here looking for a strategy game and find a bunch of ADHD kids hitting each other with nerf swords and continually acting-out.  So, they leave.  It's a shame we can't just put the special needs players in their own servers (and with their own FORUM!)  We could call it "Special Galcon," where everyone gets to be GA.  Otherwise, I think the game is ineluctably doomed to becoming marginalized, and eventually, superseded by another game.  And then the little kids will destroy THAT game, and so on.



Hypocrite...

You are one of the slowest players here, and even when people play great, you only criticize them, and you say "use 25%" (which is the worst percentage EVER!), and yet every time, I fight you, you lose because you're the spaz... noob... phh.

Oh, and what diebkstabber wrote is correct. 100% agree with him. They didn't drive me out though, they got boring because they sucked so bad so I pretty much quit. It was no more fun because all the "intelligent players," were mostly gone.

Socratic: One-Stripe Admiral with 34 games played.

Great rank-whoring, Socs! Lowest number of games played of ANY striped admiral.

I think that's a new record.
He gets his aliases to partner with the people playing against him, guaranteeing a win.

Wow ipcress! That is a huge accusation. Socratic is a very capable player, one of the best I've played, I'm positive that accusation is false. I never get involved in these flame wars, but that's just bad form my friend. 
  Low game count .. Certainly
  Rank whoring... Possible  (but not probable)
  Outright cheating.... Impossible!

Thumbs up to brand for trying to beat me by switching the teams every time she lost.
