The Black (Loop) Hole

Many of us know that in Tiny Empires 3000, that once your a Guild Leader, there is no easy way to abdicate or pass your guild on to a subordinate under you.  Unlike the classic game of Tiny Empires which does have abdication, which subjects the Monarch wishing to abdicate, to a number negative effects within the game.  But some do decide to take this course of action and quite often, someone under them takes control of their kingdom.

There is no formal way to abdicate in Tiny Empires 3000. There are several Minor Guilds whose Guild Leaders have basically quit playing and cut their subordinates loose to pursue their own dreams. But if you really want to quit playing Tiny Empires 3000, Ultralite Soleil will grant you a request to be removed from the game.  Now if your a Guild Leader, your Guild will cease to exist, your subordinates will end up without a superior, and you, if you decide to play Tiny Empires 3000 ever again will have to get a new HUD and start from scratch, all over again.  I also suspect, that if you were able to form a new Guild again, you probably won't be allowed to reuse the same Guild name you used previously.

Basically what this sounds like to me is, it is like setting your Guild on a course into a Black Hole in space. Everyone gets sucked into the Black Hole, nothing comes out...The only evidence that your Guild ever existed, maybe a footnote on the Tiny Empires 3000 Wiki or in a past post on this Blog...


  1. Owie... hopefully no one chooses that option, but in the end, the only thing it has worse than the traditional game's abdication is the whole "start over from nothing" aspect-- losing all of your personal fleet and credits. That, and there's no sly side arrangement where you can abdicate and immediately have someone else get your kingdom (guild) which, coincidentally, has the same name.

  2. Indeed, this has been done once already with Sikaria, with the former GL starting over with a new HUD
