Thread: TNT/TWS disappointment

  1. #1

    Default TNT/TWS disappointment

    Well we have all pointed and laughed at TWS for awhile now. Hobgoblin sending enough troops on suicide runs that he seriously should jump up from his computer and try to attack TNT himself...though he wouldnt do any damage either. I have the feeling he is just a pasty little kid sitting in his moms basement playing with action figures and looking up naughty videos on his PSP.

    Anyways, didnt post this to bash Hobby. TWS failing miserably and TNT pointing and laughing and pounding their chests....It is all getting old. S8 forum is all "TWS FAIL" or "TNT SUCKS" nowadays. Now I know that I myself have posted a thread about .TNT. but since that time, I have entered into a conversation with 2 or so members of TNT and I better disposed towards them.

    The real point here. I think that it is time for TNT to quit playing around, and take out TWS their endless wings. If they take out the top few players, the rest will scatter like cockroaches. I want to see some REAL attacks in the South.

    Everyone says that TNT has bad management and cant coordinate an attack. Well this is the point where the top alliance shows all the hating noobs up and lets them know that they have played more endgames than you have friends on myspace.

    Server8 is more than TNT and TWS. There are TWO OTHER QUADS If you could imagine! I know that there arent any fireworks up there, but there has to be SOMETHING going on.

    Now, I see a 30 hour catapult attack coming in from a TNT player. A SINGLE catapult attack. Wonderful. I dont know what I will do losing 2 wheat fields.

    SO let me restate my earlier opinion. Even TNT may have 1 or 2 players that could use some improvement, but they still are a skilled group of players that deserve at least some respect.

    PS. myrcat, please keep it G-Rated on this one?

    There would be no point in attacking TWS, it would just waste troops we could be using raiding. The only time I attack TWS is if they settle in my 30x30. I'm not going to waste me troops on huge 30hr cat trips. Why wouldn't we just wait for TWS to get ****ed at their leader and disband.

    But wouldnt you love to slaughter the thousands of maces, imperians, TTs, lvl 0 heroes, catapults and ram defenders?

    I think Hobgoblin would do wonders for your heroes..with not much loss

    And apparently one TNT member finds 39 hours okay for just lil ol' me.

    And im not even in TWS

    I have given up on being cordial to all of the trolls and reputation prostitutes contained in this forum. I had always been more than nice to everyone here. This has ended with all of the negativity and ridiculous use of negative reputation. An example of this is being negative repped 4 times in the same minute by an anonymous person with the only explanation being "no".

    TNT has absolutely no incentive to attack TWS at this point. Why would they spend resources, time, and troops to wipe out something that poses absolutely no threat?

    Nine times out of ten the things I say require inference on the part of the reader. Kids see worse on tv all day and if they can pick up on it then they obviously have been exposed to far more then I would ever post.

    As for TNT yeah I freely admit I'm one of the people who could use improvement but even on my worst day I wouldn't be as big a failure as TWS leadership has been. They obviously need to pick a smaller target to practice on before trying to take on TNT. Some of their players that I know show lots of potential they just lack the good leadership and experience needed to sucessfully pull off what they're trying for.

    Im sorry, I should have put a smiley after that or put it in blue. I enjoy your..input.. on topics very much

    When I mentioned the players needing improvement, I did not have you in mind. I have one person in mind really. But I wont mention names on here. I don't wish to add insult to injury.

    Heh. I don't mind admitting to being a newb. I wouldn't try to pretend otherwise. The difference between me and the noobs of TWS is that I know my shortcomings and work to fix them instead of repeating the same stupid mistakes.

    I will try to throw in some more pleasant 'input' later.

    I think this needs to be posted everywhere. That way TWS can shut up about TNT being nothing but a bunch of chest beating idiots.

    We wouldn't want to give everyone the wrong impression about TNT. The rest of them probably are a bunch of chest beating idiots.

    Everybody can use improvements at one point or another. This early in the server, I'm sure even 'uber pro' players need to refine their timing and coordination.

    That being said, there are plenty of reasons to send cats to someone - complete destruction / wheat lock does not necessarily have to be one of them. He could be trying to knock out your academy, he could be going for your residence to slow down your expansion, he could just be letting you know that he has the capacity to hurt you (useful if he is planning to setup a villa next to yours and wants to give you a gentle reminder not to mess with it while its in the development stage).

    I personally sent several solo cat trains to players for surgical strikes (not 30 hours out mind you... more like 10-15 hours one way). These are the situations when I don't want to bother destroying someone, but I do want to achieve a specific objective. What I'm trying to say is that in no way does that solo attack implies lack of coordination or a noobness (unless he sent 100 unescorted cats at you).

    Finally, "at least some respect"? The top three most organized alliances as I see it are TNT, Long, and Vipers (don't know much about those). Based on what all three of those are doing, I'd say "some respect" is understatement. You don't have to like them, but I personally would at least respect them (until proven otherwise of course).

    The reason I say noob so easily is because of the fact that a 73 pop(restarted) is farming a TNT members second village. No defense, no defending scouts. Only comeback is this single 60 hr round trip catapult attack. Granted the distance from first village to second..but still, I have a feeling if it were any other member of TNT, I would not have a village right now. Not to mention that the growth of this village has been negligible, even though troops arent being created.

    About the respect..Mine is very hard to come by. You have to earn it. Granted TNT are on top of every stat...but then again, they are the only ones raiding, attacking, defending... I know that they also have years of endgame experience between them.

    But besides all this.. they haven't made me bow down yet. And the fact that this certain player is with them is just about the only reason. Granted you have to bring in new players and help them learn...you cant get every single veteran player(though they've come close). But you also cant tolerate this kind of thing...in my opinion at least.

    Ah! so he is letting you know to stay off his second village. Given the circumstances as you've described them, I actually agree with his course of action.

    At 73 pop, how much can you really take away from a second village whose fields are probably not even up past 3-4?

    His choices are:

    1. Reinforce his village. Not sure why he doesn't do it, but it could be due to the fact if he has to dodge a 'real' attack his forces have to travel 12-13 hours to get back into position. No reason to reinforce until you're either in real danger or you can leave troops there for a static defense.

    2. Build troops in his second village just to take care of you (silly if you ask me)

    3. Assume you're a noob (a 73 pop guy attacking a second village of a top 10 alliance member, probably a cropper since its so far away from his spawn does smack of inexperience) and send a welcome wagon your way, to impress upon you the folly of your ways. At 73 pop (and if you don't have a decent alliance ticker) he can probably just throw some dregs at you with the cats, which were probably bound to sit there idle anyways, and still put the fear of god into you. New players get scared and lay off, allowing to deal with more important and threatening issues. Not saying you're a newby, but he may assume you are.

    4. Assume you know what you're doing and either A. take you out him/herself or organize target practice with several other members of the alliance. This takes time and effort that is wasted if its an overkill

    In my opinion, options 1 and 3 are the least hassle. Option 3 allows the larger player to play around with his new toys, doesn't cost much and doesn't place strain on alliance resources.

    It will be clear how experienced the TNT guy is, depending on what he sent with those cats, but I actually would agree with his choice of action.

    The second village is a 5 wood, and he is Roman. I figured that he should try and build troops because he is in the expansion ring..just as villages are getting out of BP. Literally, Ive watched the ring of unprotected noobs come at me..and it is passing me today. Even as a roman, he could rack up amazing resources raiding.

    I know that he hasnt created troops as ive scouted him so much, my dual got ****ed. I didnt want anything to escape notice. As for noobness, I can understand why you both would think that. But between the two of us, we have almost 2 years of experience. And 6 or 7 months of that is on speed server. So no, we arent the best by far..but this isnt our first account either.

    If you look at it from our side, then it makes a little more sense. We are the dominant raiders for as far as the eye can see, there is no immediate threat besides this guys second village. At first we are wary, but then see that his first village is far enough away, that it should be no bother. And the nearest TNT players wouldnt bother us. If a 73 pop player started giving a TNT player to much trouble, then he would be kicked I assume. So in our eyes it came down to our village against that village. And we had it outstripped in every way. So we figured that stunting his growth would be the best option. We could have a second village settled before him either way, and then we could take care of him. Once again, banking on the thought that if that low of a pop gave the player that much trouble, he would be on his own.

    So we are raiding him over a dozen times a day.

    I guess our mistake was in thinking he wouldnt send catapults from that far away. Apparently he will.

    Apologies for the double post, but the last one is big enough as it is.

    I wanted to add that I am not trying to brag about attacking a TNT member, and for the most part, getting away with it. I am partially trying to figure out what we did was completely foolish, if the player needs to be watched closer, or what.

    PS. myrcat..is there any chance I couple be put on the waiting list for those pictures you keep promising? I promise ill be good!

    There is no point in TNT attacking TWS.
    TNT doesn't have to attack TWS to kill them. For some reason TWS likes to run their troops into our walls. It makes our job easier.

    There's more than one way to destroy an alliance. I can understand not wanting to waste troops/resources/time on TWS. But I don't understand why TNT is so...passive about it. Well, okay, maybe I do understand: it's pretty freaking funny watching TWS make fools of themselves. But surely at some point TNT will tire of this and begin attacking them in more nontraditional ways.

    Think of it--TWS has yet to gain a single victory. No, wait...TWS has yet to gain anything more than a crushing defeat. All it would take are a few well-placed IGMs, maybe a guest messenger on whatever forums they have, and their joke of a leadership would probably collapse.

    Think of it--TWS has yet to gain a single victory. No, wait...TWS has yet to gain anything more than a crushing defeat. All it would take are a few well-placed IGMs, maybe a guest messenger on whatever forums they have, and their joke of a leadership would probably collapse.
    And therein lies a danger for TNT. As long as TWS is lead horribly, the good TWS-players does no damage to TNT. Break TWS apart and the good players might very well come under good leadership and TNT may not get spies into that alliance. It could actually kill off TNT as they cannot continue for long without being the top dog. Their leadership's psyche isn't made for playing the underdog part.

    TNT would do well NOT to take out TWS before they have a foolproof plan to trick the better TWS-players into yet another fail alliance. Prefferably an alliance run by a TNT-player in disguise. That would be very neat ... if they dont do that allready ...

    Why not simply absorb the good TWS players (heh)? That was my assumption. As a matter of fact, if TNT were to send some invites to the good TWS players right now, that might have a great effect on breaking them apart.

    The good TWS-player's may by now hate and loath TNT and could be so sneaky as to accept an invite and then go spy and build up a great hammer and then use it against TNT - they could also build anvils and reinforce TNT's enemies, and TNT would'nt be able to tell. TNT arnt' the only ones to play this game by way of deception and treachery.

    There's no reason why TNT should run that risk as things are. The game is going great for TNT except in NE, where SU publicly has spilled the beans and announced their allegiance to TNT/kgb - 'TNT/kgb' being the very expression used by SU.

    What TNT is up to in NW is still to be revealed, but one thing I'm certain about - they want to achieve a victory even more fabulous than the one, they won on s6. Its going to be fun and interesting to follow their shenanigans and see of anyone is up to the task of throwing a wrench into their machinery.

    Unfortunately I only have very small wrenches.

    I still think the bandwagon factor would be too hard for the TWS players to ignore (or secretly defy), but I suppose only a real-world test would tell.

    TNT has absorbed some TWS players. Two at least that I know.

    I sigged you Your the only one on here that knows how to show some love

    I have a confession. I had the chance to stop this little TWS rebellion..and I decided not to. I knew they would get slaughtered, and whatnot. I almost stopped it..but then I thought about the forums, and decided to sit back and watch

    I was almost one of the coordinators for the attacks then I thought better.

    I was never in TWS..but the alliance is now part of it.

    What is with you people and saying that TNT is KGB. Theres only a handful of ex-KGB players in TNT (my account is one of the few), and there's no plans to "out-do" what happened on s6. Anyone who says otherwise is lying, and I'll include TNT members and officers in that. If they want to disagree, they are free to take it up with me in IGMs.

    I know that he hasnt created troops as ive scouted him so much, my dual got ****ed. I didnt want anything to escape notice. As for noobness, I can understand why you both would think that. But between the two of us, we have almost 2 years of experience. And 6 or 7 months of that is on speed server. So no, we arent the best by far..but this isnt our first account either.

    If you look at it from our side, then it makes a little more sense. We are the dominant raiders for as far as the eye can see, there is no immediate threat besides this guys second village. At first we are wary, but then see that his first village is far enough away, that it should be no bother. And the nearest TNT players wouldnt bother us. If a 73 pop player started giving a TNT player to much trouble, then he would be kicked I assume. So in our eyes it came down to our village against that village. And we had it outstripped in every way. So we figured that stunting his growth would be the best option. We could have a second village settled before him either way, and then we could take care of him. Once again, banking on the thought that if that low of a pop gave the player that much trouble, he would be on his own.

    So we are raiding him over a dozen times a day.

    I guess our mistake was in thinking he wouldnt send catapults from that far away. Apparently he will.
    Would you seriously quit bragging about raiding a roman 2nd village that is like days away from its spawn? You're a teuton with clubs, the second he gets a handful of EIs there, you're going to be on the receiving end of some fairly brutal carnage.

    If you actually question TNT's motives for having a player like this, message me ingame or on the forums and I will gladly explain to you everything you need to know.

    Until then, shut up and go top hat yourself.

    About the TNT/kgb stuff I can't speak for SU - it was an SU reference, but it seems very plausible, that SU would have fairly good info on that subject. As you Elf is known as and proud of being/having been an über-deciever, your denying should probably be understood in the reverse.

    Yep. I know for a fact that has happened, from my alliance.

    Once again. For the tenth time. Im not bragging. I am questioning what this player is doing? Since when did TNT start letting people use their second fields for field building...especially when they are smack in the middle of the expansion ring. Yeah, I know he is roman. But a single shipment from his first village, even if it took awhile to get there, would start his raiding. Im pretty sure that TNT knows all about raiding. So why is this player simming his second village so far?

    And again, im not bragging. I was explaining why we are attacking. We have nothing to brag about. We have dont nothing more then get a handful of resources and make him build a canny. whoot? No, we are just wondering why this player is sim-starting his second village.

    And dont lecture me on roman starts, as this pretty much is. Ive started three servers as romans. I know how bad they suck..but i think that as a TNT player, he should at least be raiding a little bit.

    I think I will lecture you on roman starts if I want, seeing as I'm playing the top roman account on the server.

    All nighters are no excuse...I work nights, so you'll have no sympathy here.

    Clearly since we're TNT our rule is everyone must raid all the time from every village you have even if you're a defensive player!
