    You're saying the server was over because I built 2.5 EGH's? It would have been done with or without the unique wheat, honestly, but it did make my life a whole lot easier. If anything, it probably kept me from burning out sooner, which arguably was the biggest factor.

The defense total lost was fractions comparied to what we just took out and I am making a point to why you NEVER send a catter with out a rammer. Read the troop counts and you will fully understand Offense on Offense is great but Defense has to be killed to win a server. This one is far from over and we know it.
    Sorry for the double post, but I'd just like to mention that I would do this hit every single time again. Better to hit a WW than starve my hammer.

    Oh I know! I'm there with you. Last September I had 350k in wheat consumption. But I didn't have a 15c, garages, an arti, GWs, or GGs. Also had a WW. So I appreciate your struggles.

    *Edit: I did get some garage help later.

    I'll give more details after the server is over if you like but you getting that artifact as a gift made it clear that the NE by itself at the time would of had ZERO chance in end game.

    Am I twisting it? To me it looks like you just posted that you felt your team had no chance unless they had a 60% size advantage. Also, the 60% size advantage is based on your math/posts.

    Yes as usual you are twisting words. Size of an alliance means nothing and you already know this based on what happened to NX earlier in this server. I would much rather have quality over quantity in most things in life. We've played with the cards we were dealt and we will continue to fight to the end whether we have 200 players or 20, I'm not giving up.

    Great op. Check. We rock. Check. Server not over yet. Check.

    I do want to give credit to Summer, Valtaire and the PS team. Like us, they have taken a team with a majority of new players right through end game. And have helped the newbs learn the game well enough to be in leadership positions and even to hold a WW. And the teamwork they have developed makes them the senior partner in their meta, imo. Should PS return and continue to play together, then what they have learned this round about training and valuing new players, and about how teamwork can make an alliance much more powerful than any individual member, should make them a power in their next round.

    To think, 5 years ago, a 240 player team (4 full embassies) wouldn't be considered a zerg. Oh how far has travian declined, I want the 40,000 player servers back when we end with over 10,000 players left in the round and 10 legitimate WW alliances....

    I still think 60 triple-run accounts, planned carefully with tribe, role, and leadership already laid out in advance, could win this game. One alliance, FTW.

    I'm sure kerzi, Justinian, Excel and Jarwa have taught you much on Travian to make you into a better player but it's too bad you haven't learned anything from them when it comes to showing class when posting in the forums. I would suggest you take a page from them and stop being the little gnat that you have become.

    If you had that kind of team on a us server, it would be almost a guaranteed win nowadays.

    So sad you have to resort to personal insults just because I do not agree with your excessive blobbing tactics.

    Not quite the same, but us3r3, we came to the server to do something similar. There were 40 of us who started the round, and had leadership figured out beforehand. We also had pods figured out. 3 person pods who cross sat each other. Two as an anvil (Praet/Phal or Praet/Speer plus the respective horsies (Druid or Paladins), and the third person as a hammer. This group was HIVE.

    It worked fairly well, but people get burnt out, which caused problems. But we did make many of the top hammers on this server, plus many anvils were sitting at 100k+ quiet easily.

    The hammers to come out of this group were Rugger, Kaelin, FireDrake, Tehkis, among others. Each one of these hammers sat between 280,000-415,000 WPH, sitting firmly in the top 20 hammers of the server's history (More to come on this at the end of the round), and were partnered with anvil players, who combined, produced well over a 700,000 defensive troops between ~10 players for the last month of the round.

    Wow. That sounds awesome, and extremely impressive. Do you remember out of the 40 accounts, how many ended up at end game though? You mentioned burn out, that would be my biggest worry with a 40 account team. (Although would not necessarily be just burn out; could be people just vanish, get bored, or even have falling out within the team).

    My duals and I put together what I understand to be the single most dominate early and mid game alliance in US history. It's possible with the right bodies. Ultimately though we stalled out in mid game due to post Bane drama.

    lol it didnt end this way, you guys became 2 quads plus 12 accounts in the NE quad. Rugger was the game changer. Smallest alliance I've played in on a normal server was TR on us6, we had less than 80 accounts when it was over.

    Us3r3 was also the first server that I seen people build accounts up so others could chief them. A few of your players did this.

    Of that original group, I believe around 30-35 of the accounts managed to finish the round out. Most of them were successful in their own right in some way, between a dedicated scouter, many anvils, and 10-12 WW hammers.

    My apologies. I did not mean to insinuate that is how the server ended. It was our original intention, but yes, it did not turn out that way due to various reasons that I'd rather not get into again, but both sides ended the game with 250-300 accounts if I remember right? Just pointing out the success of the original group at the end.

    I do not believe this is the case. I mentioned burn out earlier, and we'd lose accounts here and there to deletion. If we couldn't convince them to not delete, we did ask them to leave their accounts active long enough to let the usable villages be chiefed, where they usually would delay the deletion process by about a week to allow it. It was possible normally because of way account clusters were set. I would have much rather keep the accounts then chiefing their villages if they wish to quit.

    I learned something that round. You need End Game Hammers. Some nice ones came out of that round and to this day I am still impressed at Rugger's hammer.

    Did something like that on the AE server last year. We had a limit of 100 accounts and started with about 40. And this year we decided to start with 30 or so on the SE server. With a firm commitment to stay under 60.
    We were so dominant on the AE server that I'll never make a team that strong again. Compared to the strength of the server. But I do hope to make one even stronger for next year's Qualifying and Championship rounds. That will have MUCH better competition, though.

    This is true, I am usually a hamvil with just one hammer. Forgetting all the stuff that happened in the NE because I won't use that as excuse I made some mistakes early that cost me, but like I said I learn more each time I play.

    I raise my glass to you, sir. I see the power of the Dark Side.

    It was a pretty mediocre EGH, to be honest, but on a low-pop server like this, making 2 or 3 smaller EGHs instead of 1 massive uber-hammer turns out to be better. And who says I'm done? ;-)

    And yes, you're right about going roman. Nothing beats a 500K wph roman beast for pure beauty.

    It wasn't mediocre and I agree with you. I set out to build four. Seems to be the wise move.
