'm a huge fan of Empires and will attempt to support the mod in any way short of teaching myself how to program (I' m still learning how to not suck at mapping) or send people money. (Although I don't THINK it' s illegal to send people booze using federal mail systems. )

I would like to join an Empires clan, but before I do I' m going to buy a microphone for communication.
go by the name The Buttery Lobster on pretty much any internet activity, be it game or forum or otherwise. (except, you know, that other stuff. You know what I' m talking about. ) I've yet to see another person use the same moniker, and that's the way I likes it.

enjoy messing with newbies (in a STRICTLY friendly and laid-back joking manner) before I help them out however I can, and I enjoy screwing with noobs and griefers (in a manner which causes them as much emotional pain and suffering as possible).

Infantry Combat: Good. I can hold my own against other seasoned Empires veterans, perhaps even outperforming some in certain circumstances.

Vehicle Combat: Average. I can hold my own against average/infrequent players, and can dominate newbies, but against a vet who specializes in tank combat, I have to rely on the element of surprise to survive the battle.
Commanding: Poor. I know the commander interface, can place buildings, and I have a familiarity with the Tech Tree. However, I can't micromanage units, I am hesitant to utilize the CV' s mobility, and implementing advanced tactics from the commander' s viewpoint is difficult. I can hold my own against average/infrequent commanders if I have a decent team, but against a seasoned commander, I' m toast.

About Me: If I were any more a fan of Empires, the developers of the game would have already filed restraining orders. I can't map, I can't program, and I can't stand griefers. But I can create a Grignard reaction, and do ollies on a skateboard, so I got that going for me. Which is nice.
Infantry Combat: Good. I can hold my own against other seasoned Empires veterans, perhaps even outperforming some in certain circumstances, and don't have a class preference. However, my weakest class is grenadier.
Vehicle Combat: Good to Average. I can hold my own against average/infrequent players, and can dominate newbies, but against a vet who specializes in tank combat, I have to rely on the element of surprise to survive the battle. I tend to rely on hit-and-run tactics and dislike spending the team's res on tanks, anyways.
Commanding: Average to Poor. I don't have that intrinsic sense of timing and command that separates the good from the great, I don't bother knowing the stats for each tech, and I don't utilize the CV's mobility. On the plus side, I am familiar with the commander controls, the maps in general, where we should be worrying about the enemy, and what techs are usually researched. The biggest problem is that I hate commanding and I tend to flip out and lose it when I command. Which is why I don't--and you don't wanna see me try.
Current Arch-Rival/Nemesis: Brad Pitt. That bastard stole Jennifer Anniston from me.
Current Monarch of: Clawtopia
