Newsletter #4 10-2003

It’s once more time for a new newsletter. And I will try to keep you up to date with news and entertained with whatever it takes for the duration of this newsletter. This was perhaps the hardest one to make, since PAX is going nowhere. Luckily Planetia came into play and made up the lost time on PAX. Planetia is what PA used to be, though it’s not the original it comes close to PA round 7 (I think). More on that later. Furthermore will this newsletter be a IRC special, cuz I found lots of funny stuff to enter. Thanks to all who made this possible!!


PA Progress

There is little to talk about in this section. PA just isn’t what it used to be. ‘Where has the addiction gone’ so to say. The changes Spinner and the other creators made were just in the wrong direction. Like Moo said on the forums, in the beginning it was ok. But later on it gets boring and repetitive. Also attacking has been made too easy just because defending sucks. Even at an overkill defense fleet you can still get roids and damage the defenders, because of some lame ‘we all fire at the same time’ rule.


Alliance inside

We have been doing some nice things, especially Planetia related. And since SWaRM has spread to Planetia next to Planetarion. Alliance inside will cover any activity no matter from what game it is. Ofcourse I will tell clearly over what game I am speaking.

Planetia (clear enough?)

Like I said we have been doing some nice things on Alliance area’s in Planetia. A really nice NAP with Combined Powers and Enigma. I believe we have Hard Metal to thank for that. More exiting is the massive war going on between Carthexis and several Alliances, including SWARM. It is a war which could have mayor consequences on Planetia gameplay. But even more on SWaRM’s reputation. I think that if we play it good we might be more respected and perhaps more feared (dream on Alexei) in Planetia then we are in Planetarion.


This is the bit more trickier part of my Newsletter. And my best guess is to be honest, I’ve given up on Planetarion. Thus I am no longer following the happenings around Planetarion. So I can no longer give any news concerning Planetarion.


Member of the Month

Also the Member of the Month section will be different, the expansion to Planetia will affect the Member of the Month. Because SWaRM is still SWaRM and I think that any member has a right to become Member of the Month, whether he/she plays Planetia or Planetarion.

Alrighty then, we move on to this months Member of the Month. And this months Member of the Month is SNOOP! The reason for this time is, how Kama likes to put it: Quality Spamming. Now that’s a good reason I say. Furthermore he has third most posts on the forums and he has two to three times as much posts as the follow up.
Here is the exclusive:
