Well, this happened recently so I bet you guys would love to hear again from your beloved Anish Mal…
Erath 1, Era 50, Anish Mal contacted me and other 8 players to form a pre-made team for the next E1, we all join meet up and everything was cool, mid-era is when we start seeing weird stuff, not that he didn’t do weird stuff before, but it’s when start noticing it.
One of the first things we noticed was that when we were at war with the at the time rank 2 alliance, RIP, we were fighting and we needed as much help as we could get, since we had a couple inactive members and RIP had a sub nearby, we saw Castrotopus (Anish Mal) heading his army the opposite direction and I thought it was just the oil strategy, but at that time I didn’t quite understood it, ends up he wasn’t doing that, he was leaving is and going for a relic… at some point we noticed it and mentioned it and he said he wasn’t running from the battle, but guess what? He never turned the squad and that lead to major losses during battle, he the excused his decision saying he couldn’t be active due to his IRL situation, in this case job interview. Since this was the first incident we didn’t mind it that much and we were considerate about it, we made some gigs and gags about it and let it slip through. Now looking back at it, that was just so bad from him…

After that we had multiple issues with the alliances he set as our official sub or allied, from attacking some of our players to straight up taking the relics and crystals that supposedly belonged to us, we never knew what happened with that and never got the crystals back, though the allied eventually gave up the relics.
Later into the era, before it ended it was when it just got too shady and we all just realized what was up, the lies started to overwhelm the situation and things came to light. First of all, we decided to delay the era a bit to get achievements, after some of us got what we wanted we decided to end, but he wasn’t done and against all the others decision era was delayed over and over, in between achievements and swamping relics to members in order for them to get top 10. At some point Anish Mal made it obvious that he wanted to keep some relics and not give them away in order to get top 3, so he contacted a player to attack a relic of member, later we contacted that player and he said it was Anish Mal who told him to attack the relic, that was when sh*t hit the fan and we had to vote for other member to be the leader of the alliance, we just didn’t trust him enough at this point to be the leader and had that much power over the rest of the members.
At the end we successfully won the era and we couldn’t do anything about him, he sort of apologized for his decisions and but kinda shifted it into ‘’him ruining his reputation for the greater good’’, at this point I don’t buy anything from him, his actions led us to just don’t believe anything after all he did, and those things I’ve mentioned are only the ones that we noticed, no all he probably did. After we all went on him on the group chat he just didn’t say anything at all until the era’s end when he sent a message in celebration for the win like nothing happened, which we obviously didn’t appreciate, I still don’t understand how that was a good idea.

Things I gotta mention, for fairness sake is that since the beginning he was very polite and ‘friendly’, which is what led me to think he wasn’t Anish Mal, even though so many people warned me that it was actually him, which makes me feel sorry for not believing them. Anyway, at this point I can’t tell if all that attitude of kindness and friendliness was genuine or he just wanted to cover things up.
I did some research about him and If I had to come to a conclusion (and this is only my opinion), for what I’ve seen, experienced and read about him, he developed and complex of superiority, he believes he’s above the others intellectually, he’s currently 15 years old at the time of this post, and since he was young he’s written, articles, poems and short novels. He’s also have an interest for different sciences since young age, all this led him to think that ‘’he isn’t like the other kids’’ as he is interest in things beyond his age. Since he’s quite young and hasn’t accomplished much so far, he wants to prove himself that he’s actually better and or smarter than the others, leading him to lie and manipulate others to get what he wants. Which, looking and the past and given the evidence, hasn’t worked well, contradicting the superior intellect he believes to possess.
Anish Mal, if you read this, you gotta change your attitude towards life and the others or you’re gonna end up alone. Do not bother replaying to this trying to prove any of this wrong, since no one will believe you. Change and improve as a human being before you dig your own grave.
