  2. Earlier in February, one of our greatest members, Old Tank Driver, passed away. Please stop by LO2 and say something nice about him. Here's a link to the main AOE Forum post. https://forums.castlesiegegame.com/topic/39417-with-a-deep-sorrow-and-heavy-heart/?tab=comments#comment-275205

  6. We should update the LO3 recruitment post in the AoE forum to say we opened up a bunch of slots due to the merger and list a few of the Lords who stayed to supply the WSs and talk them up. We should also start a LO4 recruitment post. We should get some quality active players. We can also state that lower crown players can join LO3 as long as they are active and we will link to the LO3 post. Those are my initial thoughts. What do you guys think? Anyone want to volunteer to write it?
  7. I think Level V mounted specials should be required. I think level II Grens is also good. What about regular Cavalry (Major Knights)? Level VII min? I think the Lords problem is that so many of us are already lords who deserve it. Should we promote as we have in the past? We did promote one recently as Mr. Mick said, who just left. At least they didn't abuse their power and wreck the place. For example, we have several high crown nobles that could be booted by a rouge lord. So, if I was a high crown noble, I would expect a little protection from that (lordship) and the prestige that comes with it. So, to make it fair, we should all agree on what is expected to get the lordship, what could cost you a demotion too. Sorry about rambling. It's early here. one step higher - I think we should stick to just Sblounskched and me as Emperors for a while. I don't want anyone thinking that LO3 or LO4 lords have more influence in the new alliance.
  8. Please post suggested changes to the LO4 rules here. I think Mike's original list is good but we need to update the donation levels for one thing.
  9. well said Mr. MICK. Come on over gang!
  10. Most of the active LO3 players have moved over to LO4. Some of them are still squatting in LO3. For this thing to work, we need at least 55-60k crowns to stay comfortable on the Top 200. Please help fill up LO4 with high crown active players. Then we can bring over active lower crown players. We don't want to be crown snobs, but I firmly believe that we can attract more quality players for all of The Leftovers if we have one alliance in the Top 200.
  11. Starbeast, If a player is not causing trouble and is still attacking every few days, we should let them stay in LO3. If there are semiactive players in LO4, they should move to LO3. TinyWP, It's good that you guys are healthy now, but my experience is that activity levels in my alliance oscillates. Someday, maybe in a few months, you guys might want some fresh players. Did you guys see we are in the same league this time? That was cool to see.
  12. I want to make sure everyone knows that the active players in these alliances are fine lords. I just don't think it is fair to expect them to try to revive the alliance on their own, unless they feel called to try. It is a LOT of work and I don't want to lose them, like we have lost MikeR210 and many others.
  13. Well gang, Age X is here, so it's time to do something. LO3 has room for 7 active players, without asking anyone to move. LO2 & LO4 have about 10 active players each. I don't want to steal active players from another LO alliance but I do want to throw a life preserver to those active players who love The Leftovers. I could probably go over and convince a few players to move, but I don't want to torpedo LO2 or LO4. I do think that the active members of LO2 & LO4 deserve better than what I saw last weekend when I was traveling. The watch signals were empty and chat was stale. My options are to either recruit active members from LO2 & 4, or go back to the AoE form and recruit like LO1 did using the leagues to invite random, unaffiliated people. I would prefer to take active players from LO because they are proven, but I want you LO2 & LO4 players to decide. I don't want to destroy an alliance if you have hopes of rebuilding it, but I think you should ditch the dead weight and join us. Your other option would be to kick all inactive players and merge LO2&4. Talk it over in chat and let me know what you decide.
  14. Details are hereL https://www.ageofempires.com/news/2016/10/03/castle-siege-patch-1-21-age-10-is-here/
  15. I thought you were exaggerating, but no! LO1 has about 48 active out of 50 players. How did you revive LO1? I have not seen a thread in the forum for LO1. Are you inviting players from the leagues? Good work guys!
  16. I anticipate some of the old LO lords who have been absent will try out Age 10. Let's see who shows up. And then, if this place doesn't liven up when Age 10 hits, then we need to to take action. If LO2 and LO3 merged and only took the active players, the merged alliance would have about 60,000 crowns, which would be pretty respectable on the leaderboard.

We could then make 2 active merged teams and 2-3 lower crown, but active teams, depending on who stays with us. I say ditch the inactives, even the founders and leave them in whatever The Leftovers alliance they are in - since they don't seem to want to play. Like I said, let's wait until Age 10 hits and see what happens first, but if the maxed out Age 9 players, who quit because they got bored with the game, don't come back and revive The Leftovers, we should all regroup.

  18. LO3 is actually doing as well as we have ever been. We have been hitting the recruiting forums to load up the alliance and had some good new players join. Chat is really active. I worry about the Leftovers as a whole. There are good and active lords in each, but maybe we should downsize again. Concentrate the lords from LO1, 2, & 4, or maybe just a couple. If we don't do something, you guys are going to eventually lose enough people that you can't hold together.
  19. Absolutely. I lost my copy.
  20. I feel the same way about our forums. We need to use something like this to keep in touch if we want to keep The Leftovers strong.
  21. I wasn't sure how to tell that story. That is a good and honest explanation though. If you think we need to add it, feel free. Thanks for reading it and commenting.
  22. I posted it here> https://forums.ageofempires.com/topic/22656-history-who-started-what-lb-legacy/
  23. The above post was from a conversational post in which Bert the First asked how the leftovers started.
  24. I will post this on the AoE forum tonight. Please add provide any feedback in the comments below... You want to know the history of The Leftovers? Well this is what our first emperor, KJB1873, said when he was asked about it in one of our forums: "It is a funny story. Because we were pretty much the last active players of Hylian Legion 2. So when we decided to leave the alliance, we tried to figure in a name that matched what we were. I liked the name "Remnants of Hylian Legion 2," but the name wouldn't fit. Bruceleeon came up with the idea to call us "Leftovers" and the name stuck. Any further details as to the inspiration of the name must be gathered from Bruce." The Leftovers Byzantiquitus, Emperor Founding Members: KJB1873, Elected Emperor Bruceleeon, Webmaster Sleezly RiskPremium hellboy0369 Ghost10221987 SnowingGoblin89 The Leftovers 2 Kaptain Kronic, Elected Emperor The Leftovers 3 The BBQ Kid, Elected Emperor Current Emperor - Varies and is shared between the lords The Leftovers 4 MikeR210, Elected Emperor Sblounskched, Emperor The Leftovers 5 Starbeast007, Elected Emperor MiddleAged Guy, Vice Emperor My stint with The Leftovers began In March 2015, just after AoE Patch 1.6 introduced relief troops in the Watch Signal, forcing me to join an alliance. KJB1873 had posted a nice invitation on the forums. This was the only way to find an alliance at the time. The leaderboard was the other, but the Top 200 teams were always full, or exclusive. Here’s a short timeline. March 19, 2015 - Bruceleeon set up the team forums at http://forums.computingondemand.com/forum/140-the-leftovers/ March 25, 2015 - LO2 was formed, Kaptain Kronic, Elected Emperor April 19, 2015 - LO3 was formed, The BBQ Kid, Elected Emperor June 22, 2015 - LO4 was formed, Mike R210, Elected Emperor August 30, 2015 - LO5 was formed, Starbeast007, Elected Emperor March 6, 2016 - LO5 was put into hibernation and the members dispersed to the other branches to help with overall activity Early on, we had leadership meetings in a private chat room every Sunday afternoon to discuss important topics, and crack jokes. Between the forums and the chat room, we all stayed on the same page. One of the things that sets us apart from all other alliances is that we don’t have a crown based ranking system. For example; LO3 is just the third franchise. This is why you will see LO4, LO2, or LO3 in the leaderboard, but may not see original “The Leftovers”. We are all brother alliances, not ranked in any particular order. In fact many times we have sent lords over to other LO alliances to help out with donations, or to boost the crown count if needed. Please like this post if you have ever been in LO. I would like to see some old names.
