I demand you all go sign up using this link: http://ceti.astroempires.com/?ref=C.34413
Then join this guild: http://ceti.astroempires.com/guild.aspx?guild=109
MORDOR basically owns Alpha server (we're currently taking on 5 other top-10 guilds and smashing the crap out of them) and is kicking ass on Beta too.
But I got made Da Boss of Ceti-MORDOR due to being the only person stupid enough to take the job on. We've always kinda been lacking in numbers due to people generally only joining Ceti because their Alpha/Beta accounts weren't doing much at the time, then they bailed when they got into a war on the other servers....
That won't be a problem with you people, since you're all AE noobs.
So sign up.
It's fun, simple - and with my help, guides and experienced advice - easy to play.
There's already guides and tutorials on the Ceti-MORDOR forums I set up (link on the guild info page), and I've got some people I know from Alpha-server transfering into Ceti-MORDOR shortly, once they're sure they've got the base-defences to enter a small, currently-weaker guild without getting gazzumped. So they'll be around to give help and advice too.
