    Default Top Ten Dumbest Alliance Rules\Profile

    I posted this in a S4 thread where someone asked what was the dumbest rules they have seen in a alliance. I figured it would help give more people a laugh if I posted it where all would look. Sorry about the double posting if your in the S4 Ghetto!

    Top Ten Dumbest Alliance Rules\Profile Postings I Have Ever Seen:


    #10 If your red you get three warnings then we might kick you

    #9 If your gray we will kick you (there is a gray?)

    #8 You must send XXX of resources to join (always more than 1 hour of production)

    #7 Naps: ( a list of half the server)

    #6 Do not attack other alliance members

    #5 A list of officers that are more than half of all members. (seen one with 35 officers)

    #4 You must check our forum every 15 minutes

    #3 Link to a non-protected forum where anyone can read anything

    #2 Please send in your profile art for our sword and shield

    #1 If we are framing you send us a IGM and we will invite you into our alliance so the farming will stop
    Read this it will answer most of your questions
    If the first link did not help you read this one
    If you have a question about upgrades or troops stats

    lol, those are all stupid, even though #6 isn't very stupid. But come on?!?! Who the hell attacks their own alliance member?! If somebody did that I would kick them just because they're that dumb.

    All but #6 I agree with. #6 should be:
    You must have ___ pop.
    The amount of population you have doesn't affect your number of troops. Except having large pop leaves less wheat for troops.

    Most people are semi inactive simmers, or people who are halfway active with enough troops to raid their neighbors. I am very sure any alliance would make a population exception if you had a massive army, but less than 500 population generally still means your useless since population = culture points and that determines future growth. If you have one village, unless it is like a 9c capital with a huge hammer you will not be able to do much for your alliance, regardless of the amount of troops you have.

    Most Travian players seem to be the check up once or twice a day for an hour or two, not the monitor and actively raid type.

    I've seen grey..I don't know why it's there but it is. I don't even know why I've seen it since I must have been looking at an alliance and who would have retained a grey??

    I saw one alliance that demanded it's members all attend daily chat meetings at 5.00pm EST. Apparently it's cool to have an alliance chat in rush-hour traffic.

    They should have followed that rule up with one stating that eveyone's insurance premiums be up-to-date.

    "No attacking others" ?? That's priceless. It must have been that crazy Buddist Monk alliance.

    Neither do I. Crannies start getting pretty useless when your making 1k+ of each resource an hour though.

    I hate having to cranny up over enough to get settlers out, just cause then it takes so long to tear the damn things back down, but you do what you gotta do.
    So much easier with Gaul's though.

    Why do people think number 6 should be on a alliance page and is not a dumb rule?
    Read this it will answer most of your questions

    If we are farming your alliance, form a confederacy with us.

    Some people are misunderstanding it, it doesn't mean don't attack player's in our alliance but don't attack anyone in ANY alliance.

    Not attacking members of your own alliance/ confeds or NAPS is essentially a given. Though I've continued to farm people after their alliance got a confed with mine.

    Seeing as two weeks prior to that I had posted how that whole alliance was weak, feeble and my farms, and yet they still accepted the Confederation from them. I never stopped my daily raids, and took a lot of resources from them. I might even have catapulted some of them, before our alliance leader realized just what was going on and took them off our confederation list.

    Some people seem to just go "Hey they want to be our friends. Lets click accept."

    They are not misunderstanding it. It means, "Do not attack other people in this alliance." The reason it is on the list because it is stupid it have to say that.

    I've seen alliances with both those rules actually. And the don't attack anyone active. It always brightens my day however. It is rare to find a good list of farms so every time it makes me smile.

    I laughed at #2. It's sad that has a position of importance in any alliance.

    I've seen alliances at the beginning use the resource rule in conjunction with other standards to build up the embassy. It depends on where those resources are actually going.

    The sad thing is, I know a lot of noob alliances that accepted people into the alliance after they had been farming them. The fact that it was written on the alliance description just screams uber noob.

    Well, that depends on who the player is, some people would help you better if they were just your farm.

    I like this one. Any decent alliance can make sure it's members don't go red without a sitter. Talking as a former top 10 leader myself, I'd boot for going red.

    Number six is a very valid rule, you vote to sabatoge your own members by attacking them?

    Pick inactive players to farm and don't start a fight with players stronger than you or in bigger alliances.

    Stop farming the player if they become active again and send a nice message asking you to stop.
    wait.
