Faction leaders on facebook!

5 posts in this topic

I've created facebook "pages" for all fourteen SMAC/X faction leaders on facebook. So now, when your friends think they are controversial when listing Sarah Palin or Ulrike Meinhof as "people I admire", you can out-provoke them by listing Chairman Shen-Ji Yang! It's a great way to promote the game and be nerdy/cool in general. Go, as they say, nuts!


Let's see which leader gets the most fans! I'll keep count.

I will flesh out the profiles later. If you find any spelling mistakes or so, please tell me, preferably in this thread.


Note that I've chosen to create profiles under the faction leaders' full names + titles (CEO Nwabudike Morgan, rather than Morgan). This will make it easier to search for them and imho it looks better.

Likes have been trickling in steadily and the standings are now as follows:


1. Zakharov :1st::zak:

2. Deirde, Morgan :2nd::deirdre::morgan:

4. Aki :aki:

5. Domai :domai:

6. Yang, Santiago, Lal :yang::santi::lal:

9. Everyone else :ulrik::roze::marr::cha::caretake::miriam:


Who will get the silver medal in the end, Morgan or Deirdre? Zakharov has a bit of a lead, but if everyone on the forum "voted" things could end up any way. Nothing is certain! I had expected Aki to be lower and Ulrik to be higher, but that only goes to show how much I know.


And the struggle continues! Which faction leader will be the most popular on facebook?

Mentioning this in the "Players of Alpha centauri" group on facebook sure shook things up a bit. This is the current situation:


:1st: Zakharov :zak:

:2nd: Morgan :morgan:

:3rd: Deirdre, Aki :deirdre::aki:


5. Yang, Santiago :yang::santi:

7. Domai, Ulrik, Miriam :domai::ulrik::miriam:

10. Lal, Roze :lal::roze:

12. Marr, Cha and H'minee :marr::cha::caretake:


Morgan is now in second place, and Aki has made a jump up to a shared bronze, with Deirdre!


Domai is a bit of a loser this time, having been passed by both Yang (!) and Santiago. Ulrik and Miriam have finally started to move, but will they keep going?


The strongest trend is Zakharov's lead, which has increased a bit. But anything can still happen.


For some reason you guys seem to have something against close-to-all-powerful aliens who regard humankind as nothing but a minor nuisance. Or are there Marr and H'minee fans lurking out there? Oh! The excitement! :)
