For me the great players are the ones that impacted on me when i played.
Kenneth: owned half the planet when i started playing. The dominant player for a while.
His outposts where the first wars i ever had, although minor outposts he didnt even defend i was nervous at the prospect of attacking 'kenneth' as a newbie ;-)
Matt.c: Great player, enjoyed nattering to him a lot. Always experimenting and forming alliances behind the scenes ;p
HR: The other player that sticks in the mind, always seemed unpredictable.
v.good player indeed
On WG (i think, it was years ago) the player of groland. Great countries, huge economy, knew his stuff and dominated his planet..had fun in the 'uber allies'
KB: Kodiak, after a bad start kodiak became one of my fave players..knew his stuff, solid economies, tested the war mechanics a lot, i remember us trying to work out statistical data for the various attack/defence possibilities..and finding some surprising results!
Ian: dominant for so long, awesome player
Matt/Faith: another fave, huge empire, knew war and economy, i always said he would one day rule the world on GR ;P
Ieuan: dont see him mentioned here but v.good on both understanding war, and knowing economic model
SKP: The only player to stitch me up like a kipper diplomatically. I remember that he attacked an ally, i declared but it was pure bluff (i had zero offense at the time). After hours of
hiding my defences to make my offense look bigger and lots and lots of messaging i finally got a deal for him to leave the ally alone in exchange for me not attacking.
Woke up the next day to find out the countries had been taken.. git lol
Rob Goddard: This guy didnt build massive countries or fight huge wars, but he did build an empire completely independant of outside markets that supplied itself 99%. To me that took a lot of skill, of a kind not recognised by many.
Anyway ive prbably missed loads but it has been years and im probably senile ;p
