So you ask how do I know this?
Because I was the Heg of Mpire at the time our Pole Og and Dave made their deal for Mpire's pans.
Og (or Ogloz) was a co-founder of Mpire along with Mr Moody, who rotated and took turns in the Heg position. Og was the hammer and Moody the diplomat.
Og had a alcohol problem and when drinking anger issues, who as acting Heg went on a tirade one day personally attacking several of our key Poles. Those attacked quit and the other Poles (including myself) threatened to. As Moody and Og shared their login info, Moody relieved and replaced Og as Heg. Og eventually apologized and promised to deal with his issues. In time Og was again entrusted by Moody and allowed to rotate back in as Heg. Og however went off again on another key Pole who quit and later returned only after Moody again removed Og as Heg and this time also from Team management entirely.
It was then agreed and including by Og that he would take time from and leave the game to go seek the help he needed and with our full support of him doing so. in between Moody had real life issues of his own to deal with for which he too needed to leave the game and asked me if I would assume the Heg position which I accepted and with Og's full support of myself doing so as his personal choice as well, and for which we all three shared our login info in case something happened to any one of us. In addition to which Og entrusted myself with the upkeep of his own city in his absence. Both Og and Moody retained the rank of Pole out of respect for their service
Og and I kept in contact on his progress and 3 months later he asked if he could return for which he was welcomed to do so. Og however also asked to be returned to immediate full time team management status for which our team management decided was too soon given the amount of damage he had done and too which Og also agreed.
The next thing we know is Og is sending all our members pm's (and Dave) accusing our team management and myself of having betrayed and purposely stolen Mpire from both Moody and himself. Og then used my login to demote all our Poles and myself making himself Heg, booting every one, dissolving Mpire as a coa, handed all our pans to Dave and joined the Terms where he again began attacking our members from. And none of which Moody himself and despite Og's lies was even aware of until afterwards and thus ending their friendship.
So again it was a Pole, a fellow member and a friend whom we fully supported and entrusted who betrayed us in an agreement with Dave to pull such a dirty trick upon us in return for our pans. For which Dave never once contacted myself as the actual Heg. And for which Dave has also stated he had no real desire or need for other than to trade away, and yet given the circumstances in which they were taken and when asked about returning them Dave told us to literally "f%$k off".
Payback is a bitch and what goes around, comes around.. So our members were/are not boasting, but simply enjoying the return of the long overdue favor in kind, in response to all the insults, threats and attacks endured ever since, and for which we simply and finally said enough and hit back.
