Kyrogre, I was making a doody joke. Saying Anatar is the #1 contributor and that I'm #2 is no insult to me at all. Annatar is a credit to the community, cause I think i've seen him post in just about every section of the forums. I stay primarily in the strategy section, focusing more on helping people come to grips with strategies that work/don't work.
It wasn't mean. To be honest I laughed. I wasn't offended in the least here bro.
Cykur pretty much nailed it on the head (he does that a lot actually). I've got a lot of posts that either are guides or have a lot of info that is close to being a guide. That's pretty much where all of my karma comes from.
I've written posts on whether or not to upgrade the homeworld, made a balance mod, wrote guides on countering the Illums spammer (it's pretty out of date now), wrote guides on cap selection (out of date too), and let's not forget the Unit Guide. I figure I suffered through being a newb once, but if I could help others get better quicker, I would, cause it sharpens my play too.
Cykur falls into the category of superior arguer. His arguements stay pointed and are way sharper and shorter than mine.There's a fair number of guys like this online. (It's no coincidence that Cykur is a superior rusher compared to most). Tyr and JJ fall here too.
I'm basically a human dictionary of numbers. I say this not to be cocky, but after the unit guide (which includes a capital ship ability summary too) and the balance mod, my strength is I can basically cite more off the top of my head about this game than anyone else. Other guys that fall into this category are Eadtaes, N3rull and Volt, but besides Eadtaes, I don't know too many people that fall into the "number cruncher" category that play consistently online.
