People fail to get that thousand's of people bought factions because they were peaceful supposedly forever. One week or so into it, the staff put a date on not having peaceful status because to many factions were peaceful. Why should we be happy if they have gone against what they have said and gone with what maybe the HOF factions have said. /so the HOF factions are supposedly getting more factions to zero and they are getting the main benefits so I don't see how people from the HOF factions say that we peaceful factions are lucky when its the HOF factions that are lucky.

'F' peaceful status. I don't understand what is up with people bitching about this update being useless. How it stood was Peaceful status was set to run out on a certain day. Now its extended indefinitely. Ched tosses you shook bastards a bone and you still cry that it ain't enough.
f**k, I want to kill you all !
Not exactly. How it stood was that people bought peaceful factions because we were told by chedburn that this is an option. There was no "you will have 90 days" doom and gloom when peaceful status was unveiled. Just a simple "you guys, here is the latest and greatest update!". So yeah, lots and lots bought factions.
So no, peaceful factions were not advertised as a 90 day special offer. Maybe not a lifetime, or maybe so. We had no way of really knowing. Hell, there is no guarantee the game wont be reset tomorrow.
damn, I would almost pay to see that!
but regardless, you have to realize that a lot of us bought peaceful factions in the belief they would be peaceful factions. So now we whine, complain, and otherwise act like a bunch of noobs. Hey, it happens. lol
Is chedburn's bone enough? Ya know, it aint half bad.

Is it a button that says 'Give all respect to HT?'
well we dont take cherity... we like geting it the hard way
can't help but to laugh on the part that says THE HARD WAY very good... maybe hard way consists of warring factions with 100 respects and 10-20 lvl 15 or lower members, then asked for 3M surrender fees in advance before even get the balls to declare on them. please don't taint THE HARD WAY in this manner, maybe call it THE HT WAY.
sure you do want to do it THE HARD WAY, lets see how many of the HOF do you have in your warbase, if you really really want the hard way try having over 5 or 7 HOFs at once and then talk about the hard way cuz thats is the approximate number of what all the noob factions have in their warbase.... yes, as many as 7 HOF on their tail all working soooo HARD to get their respects. so before you talk about HARD WAY and use that word soo casually think again. if you think declaring on another HOF just for the face and not warring don't help much too.

thats cheap as, you only need to gain 125 respect each month by buying merits and doing OCs
You better go study some math.
Klitschko you need to study maths, mate .... ATDI is right ..
respect needed to use that button = 250
if you use it ... you lose 50% of 250 which is 125 respect and you are left with 125 respect.
So, you have to gain 125 respect in the next month so that you get back to 250 and use the button again .... and it keeps going on and on and on ... duh!
"Thats what I was saying dummy.
YOU are the one who is nervous that someone like me can surpass you."
- First of all I'm not nervous . If anything it's the Peaceful factions that are nervous about losing peaceful status and having to deal with the likes of HOF factions. Its not even noobs I would be declaring on. It would be all those factions with 25 or more players consisting of level 30-50.
So....Disappointed? Yes! Nervous, no.
"You probably get my entire stats in one train"
- Just because you assume sh*t, doesn't mean your anywhere close to being right. Spy me, you'll be pleasantly surprised.
"Every time you train, you get about 10 more the next time you train"
- Once again, wrong . Though you do have the basic idea of how stat gains work. Good for you
"Then, just to slap us all in the face, Ched gave you an extra 5% for each train."
-Ched did not give us 100,000 respect points. That was earned over a couple of years of solid dedication and chaining. Ched is giving you the very same option as he gave us. Now it's YOUR job do go out and get respect. Respect is something your EARN.
"Those of us who started later than you will never get to use that because no matter what we do, we will never be strong enough to join a faction that can keep that special without being killed in two days."
-Tell that to supermikk and the HT crew. They were completely unknown noobs when they came out of the wood work and they took the HOF by surprise and by storm. They battled and beat some of the most powerful and high stat factions in the game when they had no stats and no respect. Determination, perseverance loyalty and RL time got them to where they are today. It's possible for you to do the same regardless of where you are sitting now.
"For the most part, Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE in this game, only care about themselves."
"But another fact is that 500,000 selfish assholes outnumbers 250 selfish assholes 2000:1."
-More bullsh*t.... That's not a fact. Thats an opinion. What numbers did you crunch to come up with that figure?
"Sure the stat formula is uneven, but it kept things interesting (Regulate who factions can war and it just might work) but that does not justify soloing faction related merits or specials to 250 jerks when 500,000 jerks can't get any.
By the way, thats $1250 verses 2.5 million dollars."
-Are those more crap numbers out you came up with out of your head? Your assuming that all HOF people are jerks. Keep in mind we all started out the same as you. We all have made friendships in TC and believe it or not, there are some noobs I have a ton of respect for. I never judge someone by there level or ID number or faction . I have to talk to someone a couple times before I make a judgment call on whether or not they are my type of people. Though by the sounds things, you think anyone on in a HOF faction, or an aggressive faction or if they are in a faction that is a potential threat to yours...Or a even player with high stats you think they are "jerks or assholes".
How about give respect where respect is do.
P.S. If HOF isn't chaining, that means we are training. Just like you
