I really don’t want to post anythign else about Evony (nee Civony), but not only is it kind of like a train derailment, it’s a slow motion train derailment that goes on for weeks.  Aside from its gold farming roots, bizarrely overpriced revenue model, blatant click fraud, player contests that are just so sad that I really want to make a parody page but think it couldn’t be any funnier than what’s actually there, stolen everything, unbelievable amount of comment spam, AdSense filter bypassing, player-based promotion slash datamining, and just flat out boring gameplay, Evony has perhaps perfectly distilled web-based advertising down to its most perfect form.  Please read Coding Horror’s progression of Evony ads to see this amazing refinement over time.  For those of you who miss the point of its final form, I will attempt to point out its perfection below.

So I admit it, I’ve been playing Civony for, uh, about 3 weeks.  At the end of week 1 (when your newbler protection runs out) I had 52000-ish prestige.  At this point I’m hovering around 36-40th place on the overall server prestige list, with maybe 64000 players listed.  (Okay, a lot of those are inactives who made an account and found out there was no "qween.")  I didn’t try really hard either, and since I’m getting fairly bored with the game anyway, I figure there’s no reason to not tell people how to properly exploit the game’s substantially broken economic model to their own advantage.

Free web-based version of a slow multiplayer version of Age of Kings that lures you in with cleavage and then sells you in-game items.  It’s in late beta so it’s about as completed as any other game on the market.

Note:  This game was found via careful research and recommendation, i.e. I saw boobs on the ad banner.  This intro review was written after a vast amount of research, i.e. I started playing about half an hour ago and confirmed that there are in fact no boobs in sight.  Unless you count the chat client.

This article will be updated as I play, possibly over days based on how long it’s taking to upgrade my town hall.

Oddly enough, no word back on my inquiry on how best to monetize my lesbian scat porn-crazed customer base.  You pervs.  However, the search for relevant ads continues on, as I figure I might have a week or so before some script decides to shut down my account at random.  Because you know, the first rule about Ad Club is, you do NOT talk about ad club.
