    MGD was the big-bad alliance in the NE, if memory serves me correctly.

    PRiKs was on that server, too.

    exactly. That was a busy fun server. No simming, just battle after battle.

    They offered a NAP with my alliance without messaging us at all.

    If you are talking about S5r1 it was NEC and I was a member.. a very very newbie member. NEC was a hodgepodge of folks actually. Apparently they split with the folks who formed =V=. We did alright I think for a very smallish group. Teutobod, CFG, it's Hometown, Pew, KadDargo amongst others. Ahhhh Priks. lol, my first Ally whom I left to join NEC because Mary? was such a control freak.

    Memory's letters from the wall are still some of the best Travian fiction I've read. Besides sPaRkLeZ nonsense of course.

    I remember being in HOM (Haven of Might) and working to undermine KoN clear up until we ended up joining them, and even then it took us a while to drop plans of rebellion at a later point from the inside out. The end of that round was also one of the first major shifts in leadership of KoN as well.

    2008 I was working night shift trying to keep my college buddies (all farms) alive on US2.
    2009 I was on a killing spree across two servers and catted something like 40 or 50 accounts.
    2015 I'm just quietly simming in anonymity.

    BS was doing the same thing, but we never came around to joining. We finally made an NAP during the end of endgame with some n00b leader in KoN, their freshly-promoted Kerzi, who was pretty damn sure Justinian was just another dirty lying weasel. And she was right.

    We ended up getting to a sort of do or die position, I had a hammer in the boonies that was originally going to be used against KoN but ended up being GW hit later on. Had I not made that transition though I suspect that would have been it for me and Travian. All sorts of things I would have never experienced and people I would have never met, kind of crazy really.

I was the largest player in BS, so I applied to KoN. My hope was that I could protect my friends from the inside of the beast. So yeah...Wolfman and Blackhatter were the reasons I joined to begin with. I couldn't stand seeing Happy and Haaviskhan kicking their *** every day.

    Had you not made the transition, I would not have taken the leader position when it was dumped in my lap. You're the one who encouraged me, you're the one who met my lengthy list of objections point for point, and you're the one who swore that if I did it, you would always be there for me.

    And here you are. You kept your promise. There would have been no KoN as we knew it without you

    I'm kinda loving this trip down memory lane. If anyone other than current S3 players who happened to play S5 in the past would like to actually show up and pull the discussion back to present and the boredom that is this server and forum, then please...be my guest.

    This is half of how I ended up in Storm US2R2. I went to Storm to try to save my friends. I'd pay resources to the top raiders to lay off of them. The other half was I was betrayed by the zergers which lead to my radical shift in ideology.

    NEC is it, yes. I had forgotten those names, too. I was such a noob on that server. I remember Shevy and silvrbelt of M-E.

    But there was a big Gaul in NEC, that was so cool, and helped me learn the game a little. I am drawing a blank on his name, but he was a class guy.

    I may have to agree with you. SaG sucks, and the only thing they do well is sim and gloat about their supposed pure awesomeness.

    Is anyone going to comment on the Super mega snuggle going on.

    KT, NX and Tarawa are in a huge snuggle covering the entire eastern quads. They are the only meta to have over 100 players and they top out at 267. What in the hell are they so scared of?

    Maybe if they look at the top ten raiders they might find out why they only have one in there. Also they could figure out how much this will effect their top accounts. Who knows, maybe they are just very very scared to play a war game. Either way, they will figure out sooner or later.

    I am not so sure they are even paying attention. I know that one of their players was already catted off the server with ZERO alliance help. I also know they have a few red dots in there. Sowlid leadership I tellya.

    Perhaps you should all step up and lead. Kerzi takes one quad, Jarwa takes another, and I take a third. Just like old times.
    I don't think I'm ready to go THAT far

    However, IF I was in charge, the first thing I would do is to crush the cross-quad hand holding going on. I am assuming that their logic is 'numbers win'. Lethaljimmy is correct, though: the vast span of geography PLUS the number of sub-par accounts is going to prove more of a challenge than simply going at it with one quad's worth of decent accounts.

    Keeping that many players is one thing. The BIG challenge, the one that will (in my opinion), lead to a defeat, is the sheer number of 'wings'. All of those wings have their own leadership. They were all alliances that were merged in, but their respective leaders were, for the most part, kept (correct me if I'm wrong, anyone-from-that-group). The BIGGEST threat to any alliance is not an enemy. It's internal drama. By taking in so many wings, and keeping as many 'from-different-team' leaders as they have, they have essentially created a breeding ground for egos to clash. Egos WITH a spot at the proverbial round table. Egos that will look out for their original group of players first before they pay heed to what the group as a whole requires to thrive. There's been no chance to create the 'common culture' needed for internal stability. Too many new leaders, all from different game-cultures themselves, thrown in at once means they will struggle mightily. Petty and power-trip arguments will outweigh the nitty-gritty decision making needed for success.

    It's not as much of an issue now, I would guess. When artis pop, though, that's when **** is going to hit the fan. Who gets priority? When attacks start rolling in, how many are going to send defence cross quad to when asked to save a unique, when one of their original teammates next door has attacks on their feeder? How many are going to send resos to feed a defence stack a 20 hour merchant trip away, when those merchants are needed to push resos to grow a new village?

    200 players is one thing. 200 players from 10 different teams, all doing their own thing and spread out to the point where any form of help is a over a day's walk? It's a recipe for internal disaster. They're better off cleanly cutting their ties now, before the mess that WILL come. And once that mess rears its ugly head, ALL of them can kiss their chance of winning goodbye.
