|If I were to join the metaverse, would low scores drag down your overall efforts?|
Not at all - the Empire totals are the sum of all it's members individual scores, so any score is a bonus!
Being part of the community of an empire is all about enhancing the gameplay experience. You play the game how you want to play it. We'll all help with any questions you have about the game, and post strategies etc (usually over at the Galactic Core) - but no-one is going to ask you to play in a different way just to get high scores.
Personally, I like to explore the limits of the metaverse and drag every last point out of each game
It's a hang over from the GC1 days, where it was always said that you had to play at "maso" to get the maximum score (which was 60K back then) - so I just had to prove that theory wrong!
Still struggling to find if there is an upper limit to the metaverse scores this time though...
