Thread: Allahu Akbar!

  1. #1

    Default Allahu Akbar!

    Everything you need to know about the Allah account, as determined by kerwin.

    Before my time on the account, Cerwin worked his tail off to create a glorious empire of awesomeness. I jumped onto the account just before Thanksgiving, and I believe we were top 20 pop and had just received the speed artifact. Word had already been on the account for some time, and Cerwin basically gave us the keys to the lamborghini and grabbed for himself the best seat in the house.

    The only problem, though, was that when I started, we had one big ghost hammer and one small raiding hammer. And that was it. Word and I ramped up our raiding and built up some more villages to the point where we had FOUR fully functional ghost hammers, and you guys pretty much know the rest of the story.

    At our peak, we had approximately 100k TTs and 25k swords across all our hammers. Our largest hammer got up to 54k TTs at one point (although we never got a chance to use it due to some carelessness of a lot of different people, including ourselves).

    After the original DSP withered away, Word and I needed more ways of finding scouting reports of good hammers, so we opened our services up to the entire server! We messaged people with the scout artifacts in all different alliances and basically told them that if they could find us undefended hammers, we would kill them. We did not discriminate. We did not care. We had WE and oNE sending scouts all across the server all the time looking for things for us to kill, and we had Enki scouting absolutely everything else.

    Oh yeah, and it was right about this time that we were offered a sitter spot on the Rock Lee account, so we had our very own 10x scout artifact!


    Now for the part you've all been waiting for: a long chain of BRs detailed 2.25 million kills worth of death and destruction!

    Our very first ghosting, right around when I joined the account. We don't have the original report on this one, but it was Talan:
    http://travian-reports.net/us/raport.php?id=940977f5e79

    Next, we hit bestabezbazzul with a raid (another DSP member followed us and cleared the rest out):
    http://travian-reports.net/us/report/29095774399

    [Right around here we landed an attack on Dr Seb right after he chiefed a village. We don't have the report, but I believe we killed 10k axes and 3k TKs]

    Kronus:
    http://travian-reports.net/us/report/2909638d144

    Simultaneous hits on Zarockin (zomfg, check out that ghost hammer!):

    Snoopy:
    http://travian-reports.net/us/report/2909740b269

    NOTE: This is when we found out that we like hitting things in oases. As many of you are aware, the server would not recover from this realization.

    the_end:
    http://travian-reports.net/us/report/29098927bb8

    I have to jump out of order a little bit here because of how ridiculous this is. We found God storing his troops in SOMEONE ELSE'S oasis, and the other person was inactive! So we killed it, and he never even had a CHANCE to see the attack coming:
    http://travian-reports.net/us/report/29099869188

    And then.... he did it AGAIN in the SAME OASIS:

    My favorite activity was watching attack logs because of you guys!

    Great job on raiding down the entire server as well .

    I apologize for any gripes Nemain had before the arti moved. You guys accomplished more with that thing than anyone could have hoped for.

    Curious as to your kill:troop loss ratio is doing Ghost hammering.

    During the Kon and W.E. wars our normal kill:loss ratio with a hammer was 4:1-6:1. Kon really was bad :P. Since you're not hitting 10-20K defense with a 100K hammer I expect it to be lower by a bit but it would be good to see for efficiency nerds like me.

    EDIT:

    NEVERMIND the losses are right there in the reports.

    Looks like you were doing 2:1 when you caught hammers with some defense or in towns/capitals.

    You got about 4:1 when doing oasis hitting.

    Which is better than I thought it could do! Especially considering that's offense vs offense. Great job again guys.

    I have to toss in this report, just for the record: http://travian-reports.net/us/report/289475bd70e

    If anything can be taken away from this round, it is this: Do not store your offensive troops on your oasis. Someone will eventually find them. And when they do, you're going to wish you had put them behind a wall.

    K, C & Word,

    Thanks guys. You made this round a lot of fun for us. It really has been a blast watching this all play out. We wish you all the best of luck & happiness. <3

    Considering TEG was an anvil alliance, we didn't think it would really be worth it. Not to mention how intertwined some of those accounts are...

    Burt was one of the primary suppliers of reports to us from the TBA meta. The other was Rock Lee (which we were sitting). Without either of them, it would have been difficult to get most of the kills we had.

    Simply epic.

    For anyone who fails to appreciate how large that number is we can compare it to my beloved US2. A fairly aggressive server, the top 5 attacking accounts combined had that number at the time plans were released. The epicness of this is beyond words.

    wait so is this before auto-dodging? did s1 have that gold capability? its a noob question, i know...but im thinking "how can i stop this from happening to me"...

    in general, im confused at how many players were able to fall to you guys, without people cowering in fear and actually smartening up. stories of hammers falling left and right to your ghost hammers had to be on the forums and in alliance messages. but i suppose you are just that good

    those numbers are epic.

    For some reason I don't think of Allah as incompetent. No idea why. Perhaps it has to do with their kill "score".

    On a related note, this is why only gauls should get the super insane speed artifact. Yes, it does help any tribe, but without units that are already fast you can't make full use of it. Plus, from 400, 400 to 0,0 in 3:40 is so over powered it's not funny.

    Looks like we didn't save it. It looked something like this, though:

    we lose 27k TTs (half of our largest hammer) and our hero.
    other guy loses 24k phalanx and maybe 15k DRs and his hero.
    'kittykitty' loses all respect from everyone in all alliances across the server.
    'kittykitty' goes on to post about her idiocy all over the PF and loses all respect there as well.

    We offered your alliance, on a silver platter, the single best weapon on the server, and you can't even manage to put together a correct scouting report in order to KEEP that weapon? Nice work.

    This is not exactly an impossible scenario... for reference, please see our hits on BigTamr's oases, where a roman had, as you so eloquently stated, a 'butt load of mace'. Reinforcing people is one of the three things you can do with your troops. Ask Dagada if he knows of any Gaul capitals that had any maces in them near end game.

    So, in short, the answer to your question: You. You are more incompetent. It is you.

    I bet you have a TON of people asking you to be in their alliance for the round 4 restart, don't you?

    Well, i guess i can finally post something. I have to apologize to Dags for losing those cats of his. Between my sitter and I we had really good coverage, but logged off for sleep 10 minutes too early (I know who needs sleep right).

    So here i am hanging my head in shame and saying sorry to Dags.

    And a great big congrats to Allah, it was an impressive feat.

    EI would be able to cover that same distance in about 5 hrs with that artifact. Still enough time to hit any account over night. They also have a bunch more attack and a better building time so i think a roman EI has potential to do as much damage with less loss.

    Either way that's a lot of speed.

    I actually agree with this. TTs are barely stronger than imperians, and the sheer size of some of the hammers we found made it so we couldn't hit a lot of the bigger ones.

    You would be giving up quite a bit of speed to switch to EIs, and your Roman would have to be very dedicated to raiding since it would be EXPENSIVE to keep multiple GSs queued up, but your hammers would get strong in a hurry.

    For reference, in one hammer with no artifact, a Gaul could pump out ~60k raw attack points per day, while a Roman could get ~76k in the same time, or ~95k with a watering hole. And you could still get anywhere in your quad in under 3hrs.

    The only trick to making the most out of the speed artifact is to not just add it to any account; you have to build the account around the artifact. If you do it right, any gual, teuton, or roman account will make impressive use of it. But just the same, any account can waste it just as easily.
