'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 a fan of Empiresthe of I 'I 't '.
I would like to join an Empires clan, but before I do I' m going to buy a microphone for communication.
I 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).
Also racing around maps in jeeps at top speed trying to run people over. Thats awesome.
Infantry Combat'': Good. I can hold my own against other seasoned Empires veterans, perhaps even outperforming some in certain circumstances, and will play any infantry class without preference.
''Combat'': Good . I can hold my own against , in , and.
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. I tend to rely on hit-and -run tactics.

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. Also, I should note that I get incredibly frustrated when I'm comm and tend to curse and yell and generally be a doo-doo head, so I usually avoid it.

Arch-Rival/Nemesis''': SoloKiller, for besting me in death racing.
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.
