Show off your armies and weaponry and stuff.
Not to be confused with the Norwegian Immortals used against King Harold just prior to the battle of Hastings where Harold was defeated by William the Conqueror. Those Immortals lost too. Just saying. I know my history too, just saying.Alex wrote:If I recall correctly, 300 Spartans held off over 250,000 Persians for 3 days. The Persians' elite troops, also called the Immortals, got their asses handed to them. Even though the Spartans did inevitably lose, they took a lot of Persians with them. Just saying.

Nukes are so last tech-level, and I'd like like to see that shopping trolley stand up to the H.O.E.S (High Orbit kinetic Energy Strike) weapon system. Remember that the empires on both sides have their own agendas but would gladly go off at a tangent just to get rid of a smug grin.BrikSaber wrote:Cpl.

Let's see if we can change that sentiment.
NAC anti-SHIP turret- A large turret that launches large spheres that are essentially mini-nukes/EMP missiles. Operated by an inexplicably drunk guy.
I look forward to doing battle with the Immortals and their allies

Actually Wikipedia says:Alex wrote:If I recall correctly, 300 Spartans held off over 250,000 Persians for 3 days.
It's this part that's remembered in history:
But, then again, who really cares anyways.Wikipedia wrote:Aware that his force was being outflanked, Leonidas dismissed the bulk of the Greek army, and remained to guard the rear with 300 Spartans, 700 Thespians, 400 Thebans and perhaps a few hundred others, the vast majority of whom were killed.
You're right, but my main point was that a small army can make an epic last stand that others will remember, even if they get wiped out in the process.Zupponn wrote:Actually Wikipedia says:Alex wrote:If I recall correctly, 300 Spartans held off over 250,000 Persians for 3 days.

But the Persian Immortals at Thermopylae still ended up killing all of the defending spartans, so if anything, they'll win after sustaining an absurd amount of casualties.

Does the Immortal Empire have any sort of mass mind control? If so, freedom ain't gonna last. If they don't, well, let's just say...BrikSaber wrote:We will not give up our newfound freedom to Warhead, or anyone else!

Or you could just blow them all up. As usual.
