I realise you have a certain grudge against me though I am not sure why, but if you want to discuss me as a player please do make a separate thread for it. What I did on E1 would not have been allowed on M2, that is why I did it on E1 and not on M2. When I played under Tom on M2 and F1 I would not think of doing this because, as I told you, I check everything with admins beforehand. If they say something is not allowed, I don't do it. If they say it's allowed, then fair game. I realise admins have different rules on this, as I think everyone knows that not all admins judge things the same way. Some admins end eras early which has been to my detriment, some do not.
Also to be fair, you do realise I would have been able to take all crystals this era even without ANYONE handing to me? You can probably ask anyone in my team, they asked whether they could take crystals (since all had 0 when they joined) and I told them fine as long as you hand end of era. If I knew Alex hadn't allowed that I wouldn't have said yes to that and would just have taken all of them myself, that would actually not have made a perceptible change on how the era went.
As for help from admins, can you please give me a single example? I would also be fine discussing this with you on Skype, I'll shoot you a message.
