Update on Romans Archival Project

RomansCP Seal V2

Ave, Romans!

Back in October, I mentioned the start of the Romans archive project. Over the past months I’ve been busy doing very deep research, and in early January I have officially began work. While very far from finished, I am hereby to deliver some sneak peaks.

For the Hall of Fame page, there will be six titles (all named at the recommendation of Twitchy.) Along with those six, there are two other titles. Below is an excerpt from the WIP HoF page of all of the title descriptions.

Gloriosissimus

The highest honor available in the Romans army. It is seen as a super-legend title. These people have gone above and beyond for the Romans army, with very impactful achievements and undying loyalty. They are the most revered people in the Roman army.

Gloriossus

The second highest honor in the Roman army These people have changed Romans in a very impactful way and had very good loyalty. While not being the highest honor, ‘Gloriossus’ is the our Roman equivalent of ‘Legend’ and thus still holds high value.

Magnificus

While not a super-legend or legend title, these people are some of the most important people in Romans’ history. They have pushed heavily to change Romans and showed strong loyalty. It’s the Roman equivalent of regular second-tier legend, also called ‘Icon’.

Classimus

These people that bear this title have done a lot for the army. While being on the lower end of things, these Romans have done a lot for the army and pushed it to victories. It is an equivalent of a “Greatest Leader’ honor or third-tier legend.

Illustris

While being a lower tier, these people are seen as very loyal troops and have proved to be with Romans no matter what. They are the equivalent of ‘Notable Officers’ and a fourth-tier legend.

Spectabilis

This title is given to the best of troops for their loyalty. You can definitely one day join these people in this honor category. They are the equivalent of ‘Notable Troops’. All leaders that weren’t interim or banished are automatically inducted.

Pravus

An title given to official members of our hall-of-shame. They’re banished from rejoining the army (unless revoked) and shamed for entirety.

Gladiator

An official honor given to all recorded 2006-2008 troops, which are listed at the bottom of the page.

Already we finished most of the work for the first 3 titles. Descriptions have been written, along with their names, their “individual titles”, and portraits!

Below is the format we’ll be doing for our hall of fame, so you’ll get an idea.

Additionally, our history page will be massive. We don’t intend to miss a single piece of Roman history. Obviously, it’ll be very long, in-depth, and mammoth-sized (Mammoths looks good red, Oagal 😳) but since Romans is a mostly forgotten army, we want it to become the opposite and become one of the most detailed ones for army historians. A full, new leader list will released (with their term numbers, term length, and retiring/demotion reason) with loads of forgotten leaders, especially during the 2008-2013 period.

I’ve also gone ahead and re-added some of the old Spi era posts that got deleted when Greeny defaced in November 2014 such as his retirement and our biggest event recorded. I intend to finish that soon and add some old posts from Sarahshuga’s Romans (which is A LOT to say the least.)

Let’s make Romans great again, but not through future plans. Instead, let’s fully document Romans and show the bared greatness. Make sure to join our veteran discord if you haven’t already. Visitors and historians are welcomed.

P.S. A follow-up post will be made on the 4th of February (the last day of our CSS) on the Roman Army so check that out.

Why I’m going to be Leaving this Army

Before some of you get mad, I ask you to read this entire post.

Hi Romans,

I’m going to be leaving this army, but not because of our mediocre sizes in this generation. Why am I leaving? I’m leaving because I feel that a big portion of our troops do not care about this army, and no matter what effort we put into this army, It’s simply not working. If nobody wishes to help this army alongside with me — and the current owners who indeed do care about this army (Jester, Dj and Tylund) — then I feel that I should not participate anymore.

and as for Cas, you have not done anything so far, and the only effort you seem to put in is CPAC, that goes for you too Dpd/Brady. The ACP were not kidding about you. I would do anything to help this army grow — but I cannot if you guys refuse to come to our chat for events, I can’t help this army if you ignore my PC’s about bringing you to chat for an event. I can’t help this army if our chat is dead 90% of the time. I can’t help this army if people who have joined us abandon us for the armies they were previously in before this army was revived.

Demotions were put in place, and nothing worked. We tried autotyping, and the fact is, there’s barely anybody autotyping with the ownership. Most of the time, It’s just us talking on chat all day, but when I tell you to autotype, some of you are like “brb i gotta eat dinner”. Yes, I know that you guys have lives.. but don’t you think that’s a bit frustrating and strange when that moment occurs the minute you tell somebody to autotype?

The point is, I cannot be in an army with this kind of atmosphere where people refuse to help this army and not enough care is given to it. If you are mad at me for this, then why don’t you try leading this army? I must admit however, through all this, we still managed to max 30 and average 15-20+ in most of our events, and we managed to get 6th in the top ten, tying with the Nachos. Believe me, if we did something instead of being lazy, then I would stay until the end.

If I have disappointed you, Dj, then I apologize, I still love the Romans, but if this army refuses to cooperate then I’m going to take my leave.

Invasion of Big Snow Results

Salutem, Romans!

This was arguably one of our best events this week. We maxed 30 on Club Penguin and averaged 23-25. That’s VERY impressive, especially for an army that was just revived less than a week ago. Now, we await our top ten spot ;)
