Still looking for a Empire to join myself, thought about ToE but it looks like you are all evil Well, evil alignment was and still is somewhat overpowered but that really has nothing to do with the empire per se.
In reality there are only 2 MV empires left, the Kzinti and the *not Kzinti* which is the ToE. So you really have a simple choice. If you want to jump on the bandwagon and get a gold 1st place empire medal with no effort on your part then join the Kzinti. There's certainly no shortage of folks that do that. Or if you prefer to actually contribute and hopefully eventually *earn* the 1st place empire position then join the ToE.
The choice is yours.
Hehe. How delightfully ruthless of you, sir. You should show this side of yourself more often!
Every time I have left an empire, all I had to do was click the "Leave Empire" button and it was done. Did they change something recently?
Edit: It must depend on the empire. I just switched a character from the Twilight Pub to the Kzinti, and switched another from the Kzinti tp the Twilight Pub. I'll wait until the next MV refresh this afternoon, and see if I can switch them back.
