Since chronicles are no more and yet missed by many I decided to give it a go, without the anonymity chronicle writters get :S
So no flaming :P


Beacon Massacre September 2017

Oh joy, another massacre!
After the recent developments in Stormfall this massacre promised to be something special. 
To see a massacre this quick after the last one was a pleasant surprise for many. 
Rebels would of been the logical target for many, including my league yet I promised a dear friend to leave them alone.
And unlike some rumours I do tend to keep my promises, or atleast try to keep them :)



One of our members couldn’t wait for the massacre to start and hit B760 currently held by Knights Templar, planning on inflicting as much damage a possible without giving KT the 90% revive for their defence lost. 
This was a planned “farewell” attack and he shall be missed by his friends, he will be missed by me!


Right, onto the massacre … for me it meant a late start as well I had to work and unfortunately work didn’t accept “having to take beacons” as an excuse to leave early.
While many leagues participated in the event, my report is based on the carnage “Anarchy” created. 
We scouted long and hard for a few decent targets and quickly found a few juicy ones. 
Interresting fact, we did this massacre with a few new setup ... our regular hammer was enjoying margaritas on some sunny beach!
I would personally like to tank those members joining in, we had some good fun :)

We started with Dark Phoenix and send test hits to all their beacons and found them eager to be taken … B400 was the first beacon to fall. 




B460 wa quick to folloow ..





But we were not satisfid yet .. We tasted blood and wanted more!
Next was B345



At this point we felt sorry for Dark Phoenix and switched to Knights Castle, what do you know another ally of KT :)
Not that we would intentionally target allies of KT ofc :P, just an added little bonus.
Right Knights Castle, we dropped B358 first ...




Next was B259 ...
Can you see all the different players attending btw .... we arent all Crusher's alts looool :)


At this time we needed a breather .... just some time to grab a new beer, refresh poRnhub and get a smoke (for those that smoke)
So we decided to hit a few no brainers, a few beacons that required no real intell ... no test hits ... no real offence.
Yes you guessed it correctly, we switched to FOH for a few easy hits :)
B641 was the 1st to drop :)



With B642 to quickly follow ...




Being a little bit bored with FoH, I mean comon even the rainbow league could of taken those beacons .. we prefered a little bit more of a challange :)
We switced to Drifters another league with beacons that hadnt been tested in ages.
We started with B326 to see what we could do ...




Drifters promised to be more of a challange then FOH so we switched our target to Drifters.
I think I passed out behind my pc at this point since I woke up hours later and just went to bed .... 
Yes yes yes, I regretted this in the morning and vowed never to drink again (takes a sip from his beer) but two litle demons (might be refered to as kids in some countries) woke me up a few hours after going to bed and after a coffee I decided fun was still to be had :)

Drifters, thats where I left off iirc the previous night so lets pick up from there ...
Lets see if they restacked B326 ..







So, I had my coffee ... still a little groggy (a little is an understatement) but brave enough to speak up in chat to see if I could find a partner in crime, as I went to bed being ranked 3rd and woke up being ranked 6th!!!!
Totally unacceptable a I am sure anyone here would agree to!

I believe I mentioned at some point in this post I try to be and act as an honourable man ... do the right thing and make good on my promises so .... ;)
Here is my brief chat with Dark Phoenix 





Right so I woke up groggy, and read back on what I missed in my state on intoxi uhm nm ...
I realised I couldnt go to work without making goo on my promise so here goes... their last beacons had to go down one way or the other ...
B347 ... 


And back to drifters ... still on my 1st coffee :S


B325 ... still not fully awake and still on my 1st coffee ... noobish enough to send both offence and defence (flame away!!)




And B380 went down ...







Well ... my day at work was sh*te tbh ... maybe I should have passed on that last beer but still, massacre was fun as always.
I am currently debating weather to leave this game for good or not, and atm leaving has the upper hand.


If I leave I will follow my friends example and pay KT a visit, but as I said I havent fully made up my mind.

I hope you enjoyed this little read up :)


Kind regards,

How many of Dark Phoenix server 1 beacons did you hit? looks like you were targetting the former Emps ones.

Hear to that. 

Just because something isn't a lie does not mean that it isn't deceptive. A liar knows that he is a liar, but one who speaks mere portions of truth in order to deceive is a craftsman of destruction.....Gedleyihlekisa: Oracle the postremogeniture

First take, this massacre was more of a virtual casino ;) 


I appreciate the altering of the image to hide the total number of units lost/used. Let me just say that the current situation at our lovely game is in, in my opinion, Offense units need to be tuned down, or defensive units need a major tune up. Most leagues are refusing to allocate more than 1 million per player to anyone beacon, just from what I've seen/read/experienced. When three players amass 1,000+ offensive legionaries, there is no contest. To some this is "fun" if you are on the sending side, to those on the receiving side - it tends to cause players to not want to play. 


But yeah the chronicles were posted and very informative, entertaining and um, well, the time you took to upload. ^_^

I agree on the massacre thoughts, yet dont blame the participants ... blame the organisation :)
Yeah I hid the total number to protect those that joined me, I really dont mind peeps knowing my numbers ...
But like I said I agree and disagree on your thoughts of the massacres, now atleast the defenders get to revive 90% aswell.

If in game, look towards the red in chat tonight ... will redo this without a massacre.
Though the leagues I have my eyes on will remain a secret for now :)
