    They haven't reached the "500 members to win" requirement yet, so they'll probably add a couple more wings before it's all said and done.

    It is a shame they don't trust thier members to win so they've resorted to recruiting every farm on the server. I blame Kerzi. I told her for years that KoN was a gateway drug that was going to lead to super zerg meta huggling. She didn't beleive me.

    Us3 lacks serious talent, Nexus might even have a chance working with K.T unless some stand alone alliance rises and forms over the next couple weeks. As for EDGE, they seem to be bored and picking fights with people who steal their name (lol).. My bet is whichever alliances leadership can hold out the longest without going crazy will take this server.

    KoN was not a gateway drug. I was. There's no other explanation for why people followed me to begin with.

    Having said that, do NOT pin the shape of this server on me. My playbook stops at the borders of ONE quad, regardless of server size. I *could* have zerged a server. I would have lost more than half of the total players to boredom, though, before plans were even released. My job as a leader was partly to keep people interested, not koombaya the life out of them to the point that they quit.

    In my experience players will maintain interest as long as the alliance is run properly. Very few top players will just randomly "quit" playing after they have invested time and more importantly money into their account. Only when defense is being mishandled or raging leaders are consumed by immaturity causing drama, do your larger accounts lose interest and either delete or change teams.

    I've seen top players lose their minds and blow up #1 ranked accounts...for nothing more than the giggle factor. That type is actually pretty easy to spot early game. Team strength made no difference.

    You specifically mentioned 'top' players and 'larger' accounts. Yes, top players, those who invest a lot of money in the game, are more likely to stay through boredom. Vets are also more likely to stick around, having been through the rodeo more than once.

    It's those that don't fall into that 'top' category. Your leadership can run perfectly, as can your defence (to cite your examples) and it doesn't matter. No action (which may be an issue on this server), no engagement from leadership or teammates, playing simply to click click click for 6 months can, and has, run emerging 'talent' and those who haven't sunk their child's college fund into the game away. It's a game, and click click alone isn't fun.

    The top players matter, no question. But so do those emerging players, and those who simply have a modest budget. A player who is active is gold; leadership has a role in keeping their flame of interest going so that those awesomely active players stay, regardless of their size or rank. It's those players that will feed a wonder every time their merchants come home. Those are the players who will queue defence and send it every day, and will bug you with 'how's the wheat? Need more D? When can I send cavalry?' Sadly, though, those players are often the ones who are the hardest to get past the hump of mid-game. And those are the players that are vital to keeping a WW from starving, and from getting knocked to zero when the first EGH hits.

    In my experience, of course.

    The only issue I find with your post is about Leaders running players accounts perfectly, I have never been a big fan of that and allowing players to flex their muscles in various ways has always achieved the best results. You would be mistaken to believe that I suggested the largest accounts are always the top accounts in an alliance.

    I actually don't think I mentioned leaders running players accounts, period.

    That's not an alliance. That's a dictatorship. I'm not a fan of that, nor was I ever a practitioner.

    I have many strengths as a leader. I have many more faults. That said this has always been my priority and why a team forms around me every round.

    She's sexy and she know it.

    I will tell you that getting past the hump is always the hardest part for me. Anyone who is interested should know that I am the middle group. I spend money, and I invest in my group. I send D and wheat, and I bug the WW holder for when I can send my ponies.

    I am not a child, and I don't deal well with Leadership treating me as such. I also don't deal with Leadership that isn't interactive with the group. You sorry saps brought us along this far, save your drama for your mama, and buck up little camper.

    FTR, neither Kerzi, nor LB, or a few others that have been in leadership in my games has ever been this way. I thank them for that.

    Often times contrary to popular belief, when I delete my account I move to another on the server as a dual or to take it over. Maintaining incognito is important to me when playing servers however the servers I have "stayed" on, the team has often went on to win the server under the remaining leadership.

    This thread needs a more current alliance update.

    I am not going to go into a ton of details but there is a huge joke on this server. I have been watching the alliances and here are some updates. Here is a quick look at the server from largest alliance to smaller. There are a few fraction alliances that I am not adding in here because of time but who knows maybe the blob has recruited them and just do not have enough room to call them a confed or Nap. (true statement)

    THE KT, NX Tarawa Blob: 300 accounts ( the entire Eastern front)

    Last time I checked they had 256 players and have recruited up to 300 accounts. All while having some deleting accounts. I suspect they think the numbers will help. They have that right now but it looks really bad.
    The Blob.PNG


    EDGE. 93 accounts

    They are mostly in the SE and look to have some internal problems. They have been breaking down and losing steam faster than most alliances on the server. I suspect they break and reform prior to artifacts or the SE is going to be a joke and broken with out time to catch up.

    NVF WTF: 90 Players

    Solid alliance in the NW with a solid average pop. Looking a little soft in offense and defense right now but it could be do to some of the larger meta having more action. Artifact drops will prove if they are a contender or not.

    Fraction alliances that are not in a meta and might need to look at their quad and find a group if they want to compete in endgame.
    -{|~|}-: 46 accounts
    DTX: 23 accounts (solid Average pop)
    X-F: 31 accounts
    Sag: 16 accounts
    Joe Cool: 10 accounts (highest average pop)*
    Ancient: 21 accounts
