    Been a long time since I have wrote an update (a year!?) so, will give you a little run down of whats been happening :)

    So, a few months after the last update I wrote, September time, I had some computer issues... mainly my PC just stopped working.. instead of getting it repaired/parts replaced, I just decided to use my laptop. Not much changed on the US East server during this time.. 185 ended up joining SFA, and up until this point we are still in SFA and control the server.

    It was around September time I went back to the UK Server, back into my [!Ɵ!] but not taking up my Leader position again, this time just sitting back as a member and letting @Destruction and the other [!Ɵ!] council make the decisions, only giving my input on very very large guild choices.

    One of them choices was the choice to go to war with [›†‹]. I shall be completely honest with you all, it was a very very close vote in our guild, it was nearly 50/50 for those wanting to go to war and those wanting to stay as a NAP. After having a few meetings and with Destruction and I convincing our fellow guild mates, we went to war with [›†‹]. I shall say this now; this was the best decision we made. I am sure everyone knows about the [›†‹] guild at this point, and the stories which have gone along with them. When we first allied with them, they would actually control each individual boat, then when I was playing the US Server this changed to the new well known method... when I returned to the UK I wasn't happy about this, couple that with our enemies at the time could not be found, it was a good idea to go to war with them.

    I am sure you know what happened from then on, a video was made by Rich, a response posted on the forum, responses to the response by players, Natotan offered to give big enough guilds on the server up to 2 islands each, everyone except [вäм] (the war guild) refused and kept taking his islands. Then Nov 1st the server decided to stop fighting him and just let him have the islands. Late Oct time I had a lot of things going on so was not playing much.

    Early December I bought a new PC and returned to the game. At this point, when I returned, [!Ɵ!] was not very active. There had been some bad blood between some members, the tag as a whole was not trusted by any guild and was seen more as a war guild, there was no discipline within the guild and members seemed to be doing as they wanted, and most of the council had quit the game, busy in real life or just were not playing as much. This is when I decided that I did not like what the guild had become, and so, I left and formed [185] on the UK Server.

    I did not want [185] on the UK to be like the [185] on the US Server, but more like the way [185] used to be on the US Server 5 or 6 years ago. We wouldn't (and still don't) have any alliance, we are a stand alone guild. We only shoot guilds who are aggressive towards [185] (on the water, chat or forum), with the exception of [›†‹] who were placed on the warlist from the start. We won't ask other guilds for help; if they want to help that's great, but it is their choice. And my most important rule; if you don't follow our rules, you are gone ;)

    Upon forming [185] on the UK, obviously being the previous Leader of [!Ɵ!] and having a lot of friends on the Server, members from [!Ɵ!] wanted to join. I of course allowed them granted they follow our rules :)

    December 30th [185] decided that we would do a huge push against [›†‹] again. It started out us just trying to get [›†‹] to come fight; we shot a tower, no one came, we shot another, and another, and another... we took the whole island without a single boat coming to defend it.. so naturally we pearled it to make them spend some ammo to take it back. The next night we did the same, then the night after we took 3 more. By this point we had 5 islands in 3 days and we weren't even trying. Other guilds seen we were taking them and pearling them, and at a quick pace too! So, they talked to me and wanted to help. Between December 30th and January 22nd we took as a server, and held, all of the islands from [›†‹]. Do not get me wrong, they shot the islands back each night, or rather tried, then the next morning we would take them back off of them. Within 22 days, [185] alone, not including the other guilds on the server, had spent 31,800,000 Pearls on building Towers. The [›†‹] fleet was out of Shell Shock ammo, and most of the server was out of ammo from the constant Island shooting/defending. It was at this point we decided to have a break and let [›†‹] take the islands back so we can replenish our ammo and pearls.

    The new levels came out, so all of our focus came on getting to the new maps before anyone else. Unfortunately we were 1 day behind [вäм] on the first few levels, they managed to get 26-28 level islands before us, 29 and 30 we got though! Fast forwarding a little while, Seafight released the fleet system; there are many speculations why this has been released, my personal favourite although nothing official has been said about this, is so that players had a bit more of a chance to take and hold [›†‹] islands ;) Since the fleet system came out, we and our friends have taken every island from 21/1 up to 30/1 - we don't really want the lower map islands, or even want to compete for them when we spend most of our time in the Commonwealth Maps.

    Throughout this time, we were obviously hit by other players and guilds. We are still at war with most of them, however the majority of them are not very active anymore. Both [›†‹] and [вäм], who were our major enemies, are now no longer active, and you struggle to find a fight between them. Our most active warlist guilds on our server are [Z&K] and [Q.Q] and these probably only have 15 fighting boats :/ They are good fun to fight though :)

    [185] is now one of if not the biggest guild on the England 1, Germany 3 and Germany 4 Mega Server. We have gained a lot of members, a lot of islands, and are going well. Lets hope it continues! ;)

    Oh, and I can not forget, obviously throughout the last year I have been very very active in the forum, and since the start of the year in Discord (I still recommend every one of you download it and talk to players and the SF Team!), I am still helping out answering questions, and I enjoy it! :)

    Until next time...

    So, out of the boredom of the England 1 Server currently, on the 1st September 2017, I set a little challenge for myself.

    I have an old account on the England 1 Server which had only 105 50lb cannons, no skills, no castles, only the 1-10 elite designs, just the Silver Dragon and Octopus pet. It was level 7 with 450k EP.

    My long term goal is to get this account to full skills and castles, the cannons are mostly payment so that I am not focussing on, without spending a huge amount of money, and of course, this shall be done without any bots.

    Now, I have been logging on this account previously, which means I had enough Competitor Coins from getting 1 a month to buy 50 Admiral Cannons from the League Hall, and I had already received some Login Bonuses, giving me 10 Voodoo cannons.

    My Purchases:
    • 3 Months Premium
    • 90 Day Glitter Doubler

    My Plan:
    • Glitter Hunt for Mojo/Pearls
    • Do Virgo Scrolls for EP, putting the 10k pearls back into the Cauldron to get more Scrolls
    • Level up to level 26, join the Commonwealth Raid, take captures on VCM Gildblades from guild mates to make 1k pearls every 30 seconds
    • Bid every hour I am online
    • Get Level 1 Cannon Loader ASAP
    • All Skills I make in the short term go towards "Gifts of the Sea", and after Speed, NPC damage.
    • Log in each day for the daily/milestone bonuses.
    • Any large buys, I will be joining a 10% discount guild, and also buying the 1-day Discount package.

    As I said, I started this on the 1st and managed to get 3 of the Event Designs. I have also been working on the boat since then, and as I did not think about typing this out in this thread I did not take pictures at the start, however here are pictures as it currently stands.


    So, we will see where this goes ^^.
