I've been playing for a year and doing okay. I am a little embarrassed about my score after a year (3+ mil) but I didn't know how to play my first few month. @WinnerGR makes me feel a lot better when I see his score after a year though!
Am in LMA on Vingrid, more notable GBs I own are The Arc (on the path to 80), Traz, Space Carrier, Himeji Castle, Chateau Frontenac, Cape Canaveral, Arctic Orangery. Part of an awesome guild, USAF. I also lead a small guild of newbies on Qunrir.
